Groa’s Blessing

I give you the first song,
They are all-powerful,
Vrind sung them for Vani
Throw above your shoulder
That which annoys you,
Drive your own life!

Diamond Spells

Diamond refers to both a gemstone and a shape. In the metaphysical language of geometry, the diamond shape may stand in for the human eye or for the vagina.

Diamonds, whether carried or worn, promote self confidence in sexual matters. They relieve root causes of sexual dysfunction. They are a cleansing, releasing, purifying stone in matters of sexuality. These are spells that will, no doubt, please the target.

To stimulate someone to be mre sexually receptive toward you, bestow a gift of a diamond, magically charged with your own desires.

To heal your own sexual ihibitions and dysfunction, don't wait for someone else to bestow the gift. Provide your own diamond, charge it with your desires, bathe it in spring water enhanced with hibiscus flower essence, and wear it.

To Say To A Fox

When fox-red suns
Burn low in the south,
The cold fox turns
To famine and death;
But leave by his house
Four rats, three birds,
Two hares and a mouse
And these warm words:

Fox run round
And favor my ground;
Eat from my hand,
Fatten my land

Who feeds a fox
Should suffer no loss.

Sânziene - A Romanian Midsummer Festival

Sânziană is the Romanian name for gentle fairies who play an important part in local folklore, also used to designate the Galium verum or Cruciata laevipes flowers. Under the plural form Sânziene, the word designates an annual festival in the fairies' honor. Etymologically, the name stands for sân (common abbreviation of sfânt - "saint", "holy") and zână (a word used for fairies in general).

People in the western Carpathian Mountains and other parts of Romania celebrate the Sânziene holiday annually, on June 24. This is similar to the Swedish Midsummer holiday, and is believed to be a pagan celebration of the summer solstice in June. According to the official position of the Romanian Orthodox Church, the customs actually relate to the celebration of Saint John the Baptist's Nativity, which also happens on June 24.

The folk practices of Sânziene imply that the most beautiful maidens in the village dress in white and spend all day searching for and picking Galium verum. They are instructed to remain alone and unseen, especially by any males. Using the flowers they picked during the day, the girls create wreaths as floral crowns which they wear upon returning to the village at nightfall. They are then supposed to have turned into sânziene fairies, and dance in circle around a bonfire, into which all remains of the previous harvest are thrown. People are prevented from speaking to the girls during this ceremony, as it is presumed that the sânziene spirits possessing them might otherwise be angered or distracted.

In some regions, the girls may keep the wreaths until the following year's Sânziene. This, they believe, ensures a fertility for their family's land. In addition, if they place the wreath under their pillow the night right after Sânziene, it is possible that they would have a premonition of the man they are to marry (ursitul, "the fated one"). Another folk belief is that during the Sânziene night, the heavens open up, making it an adequate time for making wishes and for praying, as God is more likely to listen.

In some areas of the Carpathians, the villagers then light a big wheel of hay from the ceremonial bonfire and push it down a hill. This has been interpreted as a symbol for the setting sun (from the solstice to come and until the midwinter solstice, the days will be getting shorter).

 In cultural referenceThe consequences of heavens opening on Sânziene are connected by some to paranormal events reported during that period of each year. According to popular beliefs, strange things, both positive and negative, may happen to a person wandering alone on Sânziene night. Strange ethereal activities are believed to happen especially in places such as the Băneasa forest (near the capital of Bucharest) or the Baciu forest (near the city of Cluj-Napoca).

The Feast of the Dews

From ancient times people marked the time of the return of the sun, the shortest and longest night. In olden times it was called the Feast of the Dews- Rasos. When Christianity was established in Lithuania, the name was changed to Feast of St. John, according to agrarian folk calendar, the start of haying.

The rituals of the longest day were closely related to agrarian ideas and notions. The main aim was to protect the harvest from natural calamities, evil souls, witches and mid summer visitors like draught, hail, downpours of rain and thunder....

The Festival of Fata

In ancient Rome, this day (June 24) was known as the Festival of Fata, the Goddess of Fate and Chance. She was more commonly called Fortuna, and this day was also known as the Festival of Fortuna. The Temple of Fortuna stood on the banks of the Tiber and on this day many Romans would make a pilgrimage on foot or by boats decorated with garlands of flowers....

Rousalii (Romania)

In Romania, Pentecost or the week after, including Trinity Sunday, is the time when the Rousalii, the three daughters of an emperor who were ill-treated during their lives on earth and later became goddesses, set out to cause misery and mischief wherever they could. Traditional Romanian belief holds that during the period from Trinity Sunday to St. Peter's Day (June 29), the Rousalii roam over the earth, causing high winds and storms. People may be caught up in whirlwinds, or children may be snatched from the arms of their mothers if they venture outdoors or travel any distance from home.

On the eve of Rousalii, it is traditional to place a twig of wormwood under your pillow. Because medicinal herbs supposedly lose their potency for several weeks after Rousalii, it is considered unwise to gather any herbs from the fields until at least nine weeks have passed.

Themes: Humour; Protection; Weather; Fertility; Fairies; Growth
Symbols: Water; Linen; Green Robes
Presiding Goddesses: The Rousalii

About the Rousalii:

A group of ill-treated women in life, these Goddess often create mischief when they interact with humans, especially those with nasty dispositions. They do, however, have a good side. The Rousalii know the dances that make plants and people grow and thrive, and sometimes they will teach them to humans. In literature, the Rousalii sometimes appear as water fairies, begging linen from passers-by, which they use to make green robes for fertility rites.

To Do Today:

In Romania, people would tell you that it is best to stay home today and leave the Rousalii offerings of bread and salt to avert their impish ways. If it's windy, definitely stay home; this means the ladies are in a foul mood. To protect yourself, place wormwood under your pillow, pull the covers over your head, and stay put!

On a less drastic level, wear something green to keep them happy and try this spell to encourage the Rousalii's growth or maturity in any area of your life. Take a little piece of linen (or cotton cloth) and dance with it in your hand, moving clockwise and saying:

The dance of life
The dance of power
Rousalii, join me this magic hour!
To _______ bring growth and maturity
By your power this spell is freed!

Fill in the blank with your intention. Tuck the swatch of cloth on your person, or close to the area that represents your goal.

About St. John's Eve

St John's Eve (or Oiche Fheile Eoin) is celebrated in many parts of Ireland with the lighting of bonfires. In Northern Ireland it is termed Bonfire Night. This ancient custom has its roots in pre-Christian Irish society when the Celts honored the Goddess Áine, the Celtic equivalent of Venus and Aphrodite. She was the Goddess Queen of Munster and Christianised rituals in her honour (as Naomh Áine) took place until the nineteenth century on Knockainy, (Cnoc Áine – the Hill of Áine) in County Limerick.

During the festival, people would say prayers, asking for God's blessing upon their crops. They would also take ashes from the fire, and spread them over their land as a blessing for protection for their crops. It was also common to have music, singing, dancing, and games during the festival. The fire was used for destroying small objects of piety (rosary beads, statues, etc.) without disrespecting God. It was also common for people to jump through the flames of the bonfire for good luck.

In Thomas Flanagan's The Year of the French, the ancient festival of St John's Eve takes place. The book is set during the Irish rebellion of 1798. Here is an excerpt from The Year of the French:

Soon it would be Saint John's Eve. Wood for the bonfire had already been piled high upon Steeple HIll, and when the night came there would be bonfires on every hill from there to Downpatrick Head. There would be dancing and games in the open air, and young men would try their bravery leaping through the flames. There would even be young girls leaping through, for it was helpful in the search of a husband to leap through a Saint John's Eve fire, the fires of midsummer. The sun was at its highest then, and the fires spoke to it, calling it down upon the crops. It was the turning point of the year, and the air was vibrant with spirits.

Some regions of Ireland follow a custom seemingly inspired by the activity from which this saint takes his title, Baptist (more accurately, Baptizer). They head to the ocean and immerse themselves in its waters. In this, they imitate the original form of baptism practiced by St John, as well as by the early Christians.

Sign of the Acanthus

"Look to my petals for your nurturing."

If you were born between June 21 and July 22, you were born under the sign of the Acanthus. Sensitivity is the watchword for acanthus flower signs. You are perceptive, and have high intuition in matters of the heart, and environment. You often react to others (even when they don’t speak their feelings, you still know what is going on inside their hearts), and your surroundings....

Midsummer is here now

Midsummer is here now,
The longest day of the year.
The sun is shining down
And springtime has now flown.
But soon winter will come
...And the battle will be fought again
To place another king
Upon his six-month throne.

Simple Fishing Spells

Here are three simple spells for successful hunting and fishing.

1. Bathe in an infusion made with the herb ajos sancha before fishing. Ajos sancha, a vine known as false garlic, brings luck to fishers and hunters and also allegedly removes bad luck. On a practical level, its strong garlicky aroma may also mask the human scent.

2. Coat the body with aloe vera juice for luck before going fishing or hunting.

3. Anise oil also allegedly provides fishing and hunting luck. Create an infused oil of anise or dilute the essential oil in jojoba oil. Bathe in it or massage it into the skin prior to your hunting trip.

Medieval Binding Spell For Love

This medieval fish spell serves to bind a woman, keeping her entranced by the relationship.

Do you fear your lover will leave you? The answer is simple, cook a whole fish in donkey's milk. Strain, reserving the liquid, because that's what you need for the spell. What you do with the cooked fish is irrelevant. Let the liquid cool to room temperature, or a little above. While the woman is sleeping, gently bathe her vaginal area with some of the cooking liquid.

Pagan Russian Bride's Spell

Here's an ancient pagan Russian custom to ensure passion and fiedelity in the marriage:

The bride is given a ritual bath before marriage in that place of power, the bathhouse. Her sweat was wiped from her body using a raw fish, which would then be cooked and fed to the groom.

Medieval Fish Spell For Love

This medieval love spell allegedly produces one of the most potent aphrodisiacs. This spell lingered throughout Europe for centuries. It's practice was condemmed by a Latin penitential dated from the 10th and 11th century.

This spell is not for the faint of heart, nor is it for the queasy. Only a seriously determined person would be even tempted to try it. Here's how it goes:
  1. Insert a live fish into your vagina.
  2. Keep it within until you are absolutely sure it's dead.
  3. Cook the fish as you will. 
  4. Using other aphrodiusiac ingredients when cooking the fish, such as saffron, champagne or cardamom which can only enhance the power of this spell.
  5. Serve it to your beloved.
Beyond stimulating great passion and sex, it is also supposed to keep him faithful to you alone.

True Love Honey Spell For Men

For this spell you will need Acacia Honey. No other kind of honey may be substituted. Acacia gum is perceived as being the tree's menstrual blood complete with similar romantic powers, therefore lending men a magical power that biology deprives them. Acacia honey is produced in France.
  • Annoint the penis with acacia honey.
  • Make love.

This action not only ensures that she will love only you, but allegedly guarantees fidelity as well.

Honey As A Magickal Ingredient

Ruler: Oshun, bee goddess
Type: Food
Magickal Form: Any type

Use this sweet and sticky substance to attract good fortune, fertility, and love. Dishes filled with honey beckon angels and other beneficial spirits. For wealth, create an altar with coins drizzled with honey. For a conception spell, cover a pumpkin with honey and offer it to a river. For love, bathe in warm water and honey.

This is also a favorite offering for the love goddesses. The passion and fertility-enhancing properties of honey may owe that reputation to the hexagons of the honeycomb, six being the sacred sexual number of Aphrodite.

Note: An assassination attempt was once made on the African love goddess, Oshun. The plot was to poison her with honey. In remembrance of this, always taste the honey first before offering libations to any goddess.

Elemental Herbs

When creating spells for a specific purpose you may want to use herbs or flowers that resonate to a specific elemental power, for example - when igniting the "flames" of passion - you might want to saturate the space with "fire" herbs, when doing a moon spell you might want to use water herbs. Alternatively, for balance you might want a little of each. With that in mind, here is a comprehensive listing of the four elements and their respective herbal correspondences. There are many different lists of elemental herbs - this was the most extensive one I found. Not every one agrees as to the elemental properties of some of the herbs listed.

Magickal Properties of the Oak

Ruler: Sun
Type: Tree
Magickal Form: Acorn, bark, branches, trees

The Oak is connected with spells for protection and strength, fertility, money and success, and good fortune. Carry an acorn in your pocket when you go to an interview or business meeting; it will be bring you good luck. If you catch a falling Oak leaf before it hits the ground, you'll stay healthy the following year.

Sacred to the Druids, the oak branch makes an ideal witches' wand. Standing under the tree grants protection, strength, and longevity. Acorns were used to ward off lightning and can be carried for fertility and prosperity. Add the bark to incense for strength and grounding.

Dream Divinations: Dreaming of resting under an oak tree means you will have a long life and wealth. Climbing the tree in your dream means a relative will have a hard time of it in the near future. Dreaming of a fallen oak means the loss of love.

Other oak tree lore: If you catch a falling oak leaf you shall have no colds all winter. If someone does get sick, warm the house with an oakwood fire to shoo away the illness. Carry an acorn against illnesses and pains, for immortality and youthfulness. Carrying any piece of the oak draws good luck to you (remember to ask permission and show gratitude.) The Oak trees essence helps boost energy levels and the ability to manifest our goals.

It is tradition for the Litha fire to be oak wood representing the God, since this is the time of year when oak reaches its Zenith power. Witches often danced beneath the Oak Tree for ritual. The druids would not meet for ritual if there was not an Oak tree present. King Arthur's round table was made from a single cross section of a large Oak.

In England the name Gospel Oak is still retained in many counties, relating to the time when Psalms and Gospel truths were uttered beneath their shade. They were notable objects as resting-places in the 'beating of the parish bounds,' a practice supposed to have been derived from the feast to the god Terminus.

The following is a quotation from Withers:

'That every man might keep his own possessions,
Our fathers used, in reverent processions,
With zealous prayers, and with praiseful cheere,
To walk their parish limits once a year;
And well-known marks (which sacrilegious hands
Now cut or breake) so bordered out their lands,
That every one distinctly knew his owne,
And brawles now rife were then unknowne.'

The ceremony was performed by the clergyman and his parishioners going the boundaries of the parish and choosing the most remarkable sites (oak-trees being specially selected) to read passages from the Gospels, and ask blessings for the people. Many of these Gospel trees are still alive five in different parts of England.

'Dearest, bury me
Under that holy oke, or Gospel Tree;
Where, though thou see'st not, thou may'st think upon
Me, when you yearly go'st Procession.'


Another interesting tidbit is that the tree's roots mirror its branches and stretch as far below ground as the branches do above. A great example of "as above so below."

From Encyclopedia of Magickal Ingredients and A Modern Herbal

Sign of the Oak

Those born under the Celtic tree astrology sign of the Oak (June 10 - July 7) have a special gift of strength. They are protective people and often become a champion for those who do not have a voice. In other words, the Oak is the crusader and the spokesperson for the underdog. Nurturing, generous and helpful, you are a gentle giant among the Celtic zodiac signs. You exude an easy confidence and naturally assume everything will work out to a positive outcome....

About Rose Oil

Rose oil, the fragrance of Venus, has a reputation for relieving mood swings during pregnancy and supporting women during childbirth. Could a new baby be greeted in a lovelier way than with the fragrance of this oil? Occasional depression after childbirth may also be lessened with rose oil.

Rose oil has also been used as a companion for the dying, since it reduces fear and provides wisdom for people who journey to the other side. Rose's comforts suggest that everything is as it should be - small earthly events serve something higher.

Even in highly diluted concentrations, rose oil has a very strong, psychological effect - 1 to 2 drops in an aroma lamp will change a room's whole atmosphere.

This is not surprising, since many petals surrender their fragrance for just one drop of oil. To produce a pound of essential rose oil, 5000 pounds of fresh petals are needed. A good collector will be able to harvest about 10 pounds of petals a day. As with jasmine and tuberose, rose petals must be picked before sunrise, because their oil content is diminished later in the day. The essential oil is extracted primarily by steam distillation.

India has been considered the place where the method of producing the oil was discovered. At the wedding of Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal and Ahalimar Gardens for his wife, the area surrounding the castle was filled with rosewater and covered with rose petals. Arriving guests were carried by boat through these fragrant waters. The heat of the midday sun began the process of natural distillation. Rose oil separated and began to float on top of the water. Since then, the story goes, India has used steam distillation to produce rose essential oil.

Only a few rose species are cultivated on a large scale and used for distillation. Rosa damascena, the damask rose, is primarily grown in Bulgaria, which has the largest rose-growing plantation in the world. This hardy rose is similar in appearance to dog rose (rosa canian) or bush rose. Since Tunisia and Morocco began to grow this rose, they have undercut the high price of Bulgarian rose oil. But the oil produced in Bulgaria is far superior.

Rosa centifolia, the cabbage rose, which originated in Persia and had been grown primarily in Esfahan, is now cultivated primarily in Algeria and Egypt. Rosa gallica, originally from the Caucasus, is the main source today of rose oil from Turkey. Oil from the damask rose and cabbage rose is preferred for aromatherapy. The oil from Turkey is too heavy and passionate for most people.

As with all other expensive essential oils, many fake rose oils are on the market. A layperson may distinguish between real and synthetic oils with difficulty. Also, these so-called rose oils may be produced from cheaper plants. Therefore, the buyer must beware when purchasing rose oil. Demand oil made from "real" rose plants - Rosa damascena, Rosa centifolia, or Rosa gallica.

More About Roses

No other plant is as intimately linked with love as the rose. When selecting healing roses, seek out the old-fashioned scented types such as those listed below, rather than the more neutral tea roses:
  • Apothecary's Rose: the fragrant rose from which a very high quality of rose water is made.
  • Belle de Crecy: considered by some to contain the purest rose scent.
  • Celestial: a rose with a crisp and clean aroma.
  • Kazanlik: a Bulgarian rose oil also called attar of roses is made from this rose. It throws off a potent smell - very heady.
  • Maiden's Blush: is considered to be a more refined scent.
  • Madame Isaac Pereire, Guinee, and Souvenir de la Malmaison: are stunning and highly fragrant.
Roses are beautiful and like the lotus, they suggest female genitalia in the height of passion. The blush of the rose is often compared to the blush of a bride or a sexual partner during orgasm....

Rose Love Bead Spell

The original love beads are crafted from rose petals. Here's how:

Process rose petals in a food processor or grind them with a mortar and pestle until they form a paste. Roll small amounts into tiny beads with your fingers. Concentrate on your desire as you roll, utter a petition of love as you form each bead.

Let the beads dry, ideally on a screen that allows air to circulate.

While they are still slightly damp, before the bead has completely dried, pierce each bead with a large needle, so that it may be strung on a cord. Visualize your heart pierced with love as you wield the needle.

String the beads on a red silk cord and wear it or hang it over your bed.
