OH GODS NO, NOT SELFIES! WHAT FRESH HELL IS THIS?!
(Fake septum piercings, because I can’t decide yet if I want to take the plunge and get the piercing for real. On one hand: more jewelry to adorn myself with. On the other hand: people staring at my monstrous nose.)
Compass rose necklace made by me, of course. Green aventurine and white moonstone. If you like it, I’ve got lots of other rad jewelry (for women, men, and people who don’t fit into little ticky-boxes) currently chilling in my Etsy shop, waiting for a good home: https://www.etsy.com/shop/NovusAntiquae
If you have the question “WHO AM I” white adventurine can lead you to the answer. In order to get the answer you have to embrace not having the answer and surrender to complete confusion and unknowingness. To get the answer, you have to become the void.
This is quickly becoming one of my favorite crystals for alternate/ past life work. It really just has an affinity for helping you connect with the other parts of who you are - physical or nonphysical, humanoid or nonhumanoid.
Oh my god. I rescued two female rats that were suppose to be fed to snakes a couple days ago (the black and white one is Aventurine and the white one is Citrine) and this is what they do when they get out of their cage. Malachite is totally ok with it and while she was confused at first she now cries when they leave her side. Honestly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!
A lot of people find emotionally separating from an unsupportive, manipulative, or abusive person to be extremely difficult. This is a spell for those who have already worked up the courage to leave, but are having difficulty not going back.

Black or Yellow fabric/cloth/mat/etc.
Matches or lighter
Cauldron or fire-safe container
Small bag or satchel
Incense - Myrrh, Patchouli, or Sandalwood (optional)
1 black candle
1 green candle
1 purple candle
1 brown candle
1 yellow candle
OR 5 white candles
1 piece of Jade
1 piece of Garnet
1 piece of Smokey Quartz
1 piece of Rose Quartz
pinch of Salt
pinch of Yarrow
1 Basil leaf
1 Rose petal
1 Sage leaf
1 sprig of Rosemary
** Note: Fresh/Living herbs don’t catch fire, they only ember. This is fine, since it’s the smoke you want.
Burn incense while you set up your space and cast your spell. Put it out last.
Work on a black or yellow cloth instead of your permanent altar (if you have one), set this space up to be facing North and sit at the Southern pole. Place a black candle at the southern pole, in front of you. At the West end place a green candle; at the North pole place a purple candle; at the East end place a brown candle; and in the center place a yellow candle. Place your cauldron in front of the yellow candle.
Light all your candles.
Take a pinch of salt and hold in your hand, pass your hand through the smoke of the black candle and say:
I banish all unwanted thoughts and feelings.
Then place the salt in a small bag.
Pass a piece of Jade through the smoke of the green candle and say:
I will be strong in the face of all difficult changes.
Then place the Jade in the bag.
Pass a piece of Garnet through the smoke of the purple candle and say:
I will be dedicated to the decisions I make.
Then place the Garnet in the bag.
Pass a piece of Smokey Quartz through the smoke of the brown candle and say:
I will grieve the relationship we once had.
Then place the Smokey Quartz in the bag.
Pass a piece of Rose Quartz through the smoke of the yellow candle and say:
I will comfort myself through this painful time;
Physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually,
I will love, support, and protect myself.
Then place the Rose Quartz in the bag.
Hold this bag in your non-dominant hand while you work. Feel its energy supporting you and the white light circling and protecting you.
Place a single, small pinch of Yarrow in the cauldron. Then, take a single leaf of Basil and light it with the black candle and say:
Our paths have parted, but still I ache.
All thoughts of you this smoke shall take.
Place the Basil leaf on the bed of Yarrow.
Take a single Rose petal and light it in the purple candle and say:
To this spell I will hold true,
And separate myself from you.
Our time together now is nix,
My own life shall I fix.
Place the Rose petal in the cauldron.
As you light a single Sage leaf by the brown candle and add it to the cauldron, focus on the pain of this separation, focus on your desire to return to this person, focus on how they’ve wronged you or you them, focus on why it’s better for you to part ways.
Light a single sprig of Rosemary in the yellow candle, add it to the cauldron and say:
I love you, I miss you, I can not be with you,
To this conviction I must be true.
My heart and mind wander no more,
This spell shall be sure.
Smoke and fire release me,
My mind and emotions now are free.
Snuff out the candles and the incense.
Bury the herbs.
Keep the charged stones on your person for as long as you need.

no worries about not getting to it before :) ok so here they are. i couldn’t get a good enough picture of the top right one but it’s black with what looks like carnelian/pink agate inside, which makes me think it’s an agate mix. the bottom one i figured out is aquamarine. you think maybe the white one is white jade/white aventurine??? i thought the orange one might be orange quartz/calcite as well. what do you think?
Well it’s a bit difficult, because what I find is that most stones that are in this small, tumbled form are usually just dyed quartz or agate, and called some type of stone that they’re not. The bottom 3 look like calcite, they could be dyed, and the top 2 look like agate, I think. The 2nd to top one definitely looks like agate, but I’m not sure about the top one. Maybe dyed agate? It’s kind of hard to tell.
I’m publishing this so my followers can add their input! I hope this helps you! I’m kind of unsure of these, so it would be great if other people could add their thoughts.
