Dream Oracle Doll

This method, which resembles something from a fairy tale, traditionally uses a mandrake root, though ginseng, or any root that suggests a human form may be substituted.
  1. Embellish and dress the root so it looks like a person. (German folk tradition suggests using millet for eyes.)
  2. Wrap the root doll in silk when not in use and keep in a safe place....

The Stone Oracle

Divination with Metals and Stones

This system is based on the concept that your connection with a particular stone or metal at times during your life reflects your need for its specific energy on the direction of your path.

Ancient diviners had splendid collections of stones and metals that they had the querist (the person questing for information) choose from. Today we may make our own collections, using samples found on our journey. It is not necessary to have fabulous, expensive stones and metal samples - rough uncut forms work quite effectively...

The Morrigan


The Morrigan is a Celtic goddess of battle, strife, and fertility. Her name translates as either “Great Queen” or “Phantom Queen,” and both epithets are entirely appropriate for her. The Morrigan appears as both a single goddess and a trio of goddesses...

The Banishing Ritual

One of the most basic and useful ceremonial rituals of magick is called the *banishing ritual*, or "lesser ritual of the pentagram."

A pentagram (or pentacle) is a five-pointed star with the point up. The banishing ritual is helpful in psychic protection and healing since it forms a protective barrier against malevolent forces.

Gingerbread Spell for Overeating


For this spell you will need to bake gingerbread cookies. The cookies are made the usual way, with the exception of one large cookie with a hole cut out of the middle (before baking). While rolling out and cutting the cookie shapes, spend time thinking about what it is that you are trying so hard to fill up with food. Is there an empty place inside you, a place of lack and hunger?

While the cookies are baking, find a red or gold ribbon long enough to tie around your wrist....

Candle Spell for Weight Loss

Best performed during the waning moon. Light a pink candle for self-love; anoint it with the oil of your choice. Next light a brown candle.

Engrave the number of pounds you want to lose on it, then visualize banishing the excess weight. Runes can be carved on it if you wish...

Surprising Weight Loss Spell

  1. Jasmine essence, essential oil, or flowers
  2. A quartz crystal.
  3. Symbols of each of the four elements - earth, fire, air, and water


You need three things:
Jasmine is the flower of femininity. (I am supposing this magic to be directed to a woman -- of course men do want to lose weight too. If this is the case, choose an essence such as Patchouli or Vanilla). It is the flower of senses, of pleasure, of physical attraction. The best suited therefore to bring you back in touch with the pleasure of being in your skin, of looking and feeling attractive, the feeling that exudes naturally from a healthy and balanced body. In fact all the responsibility for weight problems resides somewhere in the body's loss of its ability to stay balanced...

Symbolism of the Full Wolf Moon


Native American wisdom marries every full moon in a month with a specific feature in Nature. These moon associations will vary depending upon the tribe we are honoring. This month, January is deemed the Wolf Moon or Cold Moon by various tribes indigenous to the Great Lakes region of North America.

It’s been a tough month for some of us. I thought it fitting to toss out some symbolic observations about the January Wolf Moon with a goal to offer inspiration to folks facing some challenges right now....

Invocation for the Full Wolf Moon

Here is a great invocation for the Full Wolf Moon. It can be used anytime wild magick and/or freedom is requested, preferably on a full moon night.



Hecate,
Woman of the moon mist,
Immortal hunteress
Hear me cry...
