Scam Warning: http://beautywrinklereducer.net/


This company is a SCAM!



Repeat: This company is a total scam!


I would like to warn everyone not to do business with this company: http://beautywrinklereducer.net/.

On November 18th they charged my credit card two payments of $3.95 and $1.00 and then on December 5th my account was hit with a charge of $99.95.

I NEVER ordered anything from these scammers and I NEVER got any products from them.

The first person I spoke with told me the account would be cancelled and the money refunded in three days. That was on Sunday. Guess what? I am still waiting for this credit. Meanwhile my bank account is over drawn and I am being charged a daily overdraft fee of $36 until this is resolved or until I get paid on Friday.

The rude woman I spoke with this morning told me her name was Katie and that only a manager could refund a charge. She refused to tell me the name or Employee ID of the person I spoke with on Sunday. She claimed there was no identifier in the notes. Hello! I have enough call center experience to know that if the call was logged it is associated with a name or ID.

This Katie person was a total cunt and did nothing to help me. As I am typing this I have been on hold for over 30 minutes. After a 30 minute wait I was finally transferred to someone named Joshua who claimed to be a manager. He refused to tell me the name of the website or what was allegedly ordered.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY!


The charge on the bank statement shows as Ross Beauty Inc in NJ.

I have already filed fraud charges with my bank.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY!

Spirits... Ghosts, Not Distilled...


I saw the above on Facebook and thought it was kinda cool. Yeppers, I am on Facebook if you want to hit me up with a friend request.

Any spirit guide worth his or her salt knows how to shield their human from not so good spirits. But not every human is quite in touch with their guide as my human is with me. We're there. We're listening. So, fucking talk to us!

Spirit boards are a good way to start to communicate with your guide. In fact, the human and I even wrote a book to tell you exactly how to use them - Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Spirit Boards But Were Afraid To Ask. Check it out and if you have any questions go right ahead and comment away...

Home is Where the Vodka Is...


I have to confess that my human is addicted to adult coloring books. If we are out somewhere and she sees one on sale it is as good as bought.

The above photo is a sample of her art work from Calm the F*ck Down an irreverent adult coloring book by Sasha O'Hara. Apparently swearing coloring books are all the rage now. I know who we might need to get the Swearing Cats one for, waves to Sheri and Pattie.

Coloring with gel pens is a lot of fun, although it can be more expensive than using colored pencils, crayons, or magic markers. The human swears by the Super Tip Crayola markers and about had an orgasm right in the middle of Target when she found a 50 pack on sale.

Llewellyn's even has a Witch's Coloring Book that is quite fun as well as educational. As much as my daughter used to love to color, I wish I had thought of the idea of making a little witch's coloring book. That would have been a great way to have taught her the proper color candle to use for spells and ways to celebrate the esbats and all kinds of educational material. How about a coloring book to learn Reiki? Damn if that one has not been already thought of...

Clairaudience


I am beyond grateful that my human possesses the gift of clairaudience. If not for that, ours would not be such a deep and wonderful relationship. Just in case you don't know what that is - Clairaudience is the ability to verbally communicate with spirit. My human hears me and all our spiritual guests as little, okay sometimes loud, voices inside her head.

We did a bit of research today to confirm something we have always suspected. Clairaudients are hypersensitive to external noise. Sound machines are a clairaudients best friend because these devices drown out what might otherwise be extremely annoying external noise. The human sleeps with one playing ocean waves and thankfully the company she works for has a soothing sound played through out the office.

Here are a few interesting links you can check out on the subject:

Clairaudience ~ Psychic Hearing
Hatred of Eating Sounds
11 Signs You May Be Clairaudient
Emotional Exhaustion Can Lead To Noise Sensitivity
9 Signs You Are Clairaudient

Number 3 on that last link was a huge, well duh, moment of clarity for the human:
you hear knocking, footsteps, creaking noises.

This is actually a sign that you can hear the movement of Spirit around you.

I don't know why that had never occurred to us before, but makes so much sense.

Before buying her home the human lived in an apartment complex below someone we'll refer to as The Stomper. Dude was doing some serious actual stomping, but some of it may have been spirit activity. Especially considering she sometimes still hears footsteps around her at night when there is no one human or animal (well other than the snakeys who don't stomp around) hiding in her attic.

In addition to that... fireworks freak her the fuck out. People at a distance talking too loudly. Kids crying and screaming in stores. Any type of repetitive noise. And dare I mention how her psycho ex used to have the TV on with a radio blaring and be watching something with audio on the computer.

It is a wonder she didn't commit ultra mega mass homicide.

So, what can you do help that special clairaudient in your life?

Shut the fuck up!
Give them quiet time and space.
Buy them a sound machine and insist they use that fucker religiously.

Of course, if you happen to be the spirit guide of a human with this wonderful gift it is a imperative that you learn to properly and strongly shield your human for excessive contact with chatty spirits.

We've found it works best that I make all ghostly visitors ring a rotary phone or door bell to announce themselves. That way the spirits get the human's undivided attention that they so crave, all why I am keeping my human's sanity intact.

Got any further questions? Shoot me a comment.

Throwing Down The Nasty


My human and I throwing down with some dark magick tonight and I thought I'd share a little something I learned from my Tante Jubilee, Carmella's mother by birth and my from the heart. She learned this from Mamman Merci. If you've read any of the human's Ring Dreams books you might recall that name. Yeppers, she was a real person and quite the accomplished VooDoo Priestess in New Orleans. Tante Jubilee was a HooDoo practitioner herself, and yes there is a huge difference between VooDoo and HooDoo, but we won't get into that on this blog.

As you should know by now, the human and I take an eclectic approach to our witchcraft, picking and choosing from a variety of paths to go with what works best for us. The human has past life experience in VooDoo that she is just now beginning to embrace into the study of HooDoo. But that is a discussion for another day.

Today we shall discuss a special brand of revenge that we shall call our Throwing Down The Nasty Spell. This is for when someone has done you or yours wrong and you want to give karma an extra dose of justice.

There are several different oils you can use to anoint a candle for some dark magick, but none work better or is so easily at your disposal as your own urine. If you need to dominate or mark your territory take a lesson from your dog and use what comes naturally, your very own pee pee.

If you don't have a black figure candle you can use just a plain black candle.

Carve the name of the person you want to inflict your own special brand of justice on and then carve their name into the wax.

Then go potty and collect your special sauce.

Place the candle in a glass jar and anoint it with your urine and let it seep until you are ready to cast your spell.

There just so happens to be a full moon tonight. All the better for amping up your power and getting your witch on. A good thunderstorm will also work for upping your mojo.

If you are one of those bide the rede kind of chickas you might want to light a white tea light candle for protection. We prefer to light up a dark one to call upon our bitchy ancestors.

Call upon your powers however you see fit. As mentioned above me invoke our ancestors because none work better to protect you than those of your own blood.

State your nasty intentions aloud and light your candle. Hold the candle and pour all your energy and intentions into the flame. Once you feel your plea has been properly addressed leave the candle in the window to evoke the powers of a storm or place it outside to soak up the power of a full moon.

When your candle has burned your spell is complete and someone is in for one heck of a heaping helping of proper retribution.

You're welcome...

Maat


Today's reading is from Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards and is most fitting since the human will be dealing with a legal issue next week.

Maat is the card of fairness.

"This situation will be handled in a fair just manner," says Maat.

Message from Maat: Let me suggest another definition for fairness: It's when all parties involved surrender their personal agendas in favor of the greater good for the entirety of the whole group. This requires trust in the wisdom of the whole. When it comes to matters of disputes, the attacks are based on fears that you may not receive your share. Yet, attacks amplify the hurt and the pain that caused the dispute in the first place. Why not surrender your attachment to a specific outcome, and instead, direct your holy will toward the resolution of the argument? Hold a firm vision of a peaceful outcome, and let the pieces fall in a harmonious manner.

Various Meanings of the Card: A lawsuit will be resolved. A dispute will end harmoniously.You'll be treated fairly. Keep everyone's needs in mind during negotiations. Release guilt and shame, as these emotions can attract a punishing attack.

About Maat (pronounced Mat); Maat is the Egyptian Goddess of integrity, fairness, and justice, who holds a scale that measures souls against a feather at the right time of death to detect any heaviness from guilt. Maat protects us in business and personal relationships, ensuring that we're treated fairly and honorably. Call upon her before signing any contract, during a dispute, or whenever you feel guilty or remorseful.

The Thinking Woman



I've never been much of a card reader, but today my Energy Oracle Cards caught my eye, so I decided to pull one and see what gives.

Today I drew The Thinking Woman - the female of wisdom and understanding.

Upright (which mine was):

This card shows a woman holding a book, standing before a staircase, ready to lead you to higher understanding. This woman could be a friend who helps you express and understand your feelings, or she could be a teacher brought to your life at this time to take you in a new direction.

This could also be a new love interest with a woman who is thoughtful, conscious, and aware. Or, like The Thinking Man, the card coul represent a side of yourself that's ready ro blossom and bring clarity and assistance to the world. If so, find your voice and let your wisdomshine.

Reversed:

The card reversed could represent a difficult time for your own personal growth. You may be feeling confused about your personal purpose or disconnected from your heart's true path. Look within and open up to your own inner guidance. Trust your intuition about what you need to learn in order to move on.

The Thinking Woman reversed could also indicate a woman who is misleading you or giving you misinformation of some sort. Be aware and set boundaries. Remember your own spirit us always your best guide!

Affirmation:

I open my mind and heart to my own inner wisdom. I am thoughtful, focused, and clear.

Free


Free might be just another word for nothing left to loose...

If you've not read my little book, Demon Child, yet then you need to surf on over to Smashwords and download it for zaro dollars and zero cents, nada, FREE...


Did I happen to mention that is is absolutely Free?!?

The human also has several of her titles on sale. Some of them are even free and all are deeply discounted.


So what is the catch?

All we ask is that if you enjoyed your free read please leave us an honest review. That's all you have to do. And you don't even really have to do that. It would just be a nice little thank you for all our hard work.

Happy reading, humans...

Nancy



I am afraid I have been rather remiss in keeping up with the bloggings. However, something today sparked my attention and got my human's fingers to flowing. Today we listened to Chris Jericho's podcast that featured Sandra Toffoloni, Nancy Benoit's sister. In case you've been living under a rock go Google Chris Benoit and June 22-24 of 2007. Or you can buy the book. Then go listen to that podcast. 

The photo below is the way I prefer to remember Nancy. She was just a cute little girl when I first met her selling programs at the Eddie Graham Sports Complex in Orlando. According to her sister in the podcast, Nancy was all of 16 at the time. Right about the same age I was when I began my affair with a man we'll refer to as Roger.

The Nancy I knew was sweet and spunky and there was no denying her natural beauty. To say that a lot of the wives, girl friends, and rats were intimidated by her would have been a serious understatement. But she had a way of winning people over. Even at such a young age she instantly picked up on the fact that my man (no, not old Roger) was who he was and it was in her best interest to play nice with me. In fact, he asked me to keep an eye on her when she moved to Tampa to make sure she wasn't getting in over her head with her situation with Kevin Sullivan. I genuinely liked the chick, so I was happy to oblige.

It was Nancy who alerted me to the fact that my man was getting a little side action from a very age inappropriate little rat. A black penis candle soon took care of that and we later had a good laugh about it. I can assure you that when I moved back to Raleigh in early 1985 he wasn't getting any from anyone. After the spellwork I'd done on him he couldn't have gotten it up if his life had depended on it, but that is a story for another day.

Nancy was the one who called me at my sister's house to tell me what had happened to by beloved that horrid January Sunday evening. I'll never forget her kindness in the onset of my darkest days.

I think that is what saddened me most about her tragic death. We both loved our men in a way that ultimately lead to both of our demise. I can only hope her next incarnation will be a little less brutal than what she endured at the end of the last time around.

Fallen Angel, she CWF ring name, was most appropriate in the grand scheme of things...

Scratching An Itch

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA   
I thought I would repurpose one of my previous blogs from our WitchLitChick Blog.


 Remember how in Witchcraft I told Roger I had never practiced manipulative magick on him? Well... Any hoo... I might  not have been exactly honest. Although I should preface that before I do any spell work I always light a white protection candle to ask Goddess for protection and I clearly state that if it is not in the best interest or will of the person I am working my magick on then mote it shall be. Of course, y'all know Roger always had it in is will for a little Dessie loving. 

My human, Jezebel, is quite adept with working a penis candle. But, I believe it's time I came forward and told her she's been doing it all wrong. 

For starters, I always made my own candles, but if you aren't as gifted as me here is a good link to order them. My candles were very potent for a number of reasons. I always made the red ones during a new moon and the black to be charged under a full moon. You know, that whole new beginnings and getting rid of things moon cycles. I also infused my wax with a little pee-pee and on occasion, menstrual blood. 

The pee works just like a dog marking his territory. I'm injecting my dominance over the situation. 

If you want to fire up your sex life go with red, if you want love go with pink, if you want family harmony go with blue and always make sure you've got menstrual blood in the wax. I've never used the white, but it's for attracting a new lover. Black is one of my personal favorites because it is used to make a man behave when he is not in your presence. This one gets extra pee and always menstrual blood. Say, your man is going out of town for a couple of weeks. The day he leaves I pee on the black candle and that night I light up the candle on him and poof his dick will stay limp as long as I keep working that candle. It's always nice to clean him up with a red or pink (only if you really do love the dude) upon his return. Just ask my Beloved about the power of my black candle spells. ;-) 

Okay, now down to business... I always used the 7 year itch spell when I developed a certain itch that only Roger knew how to scratch. I'd get to missing him and I'd make an extra special red candle molded in the likeness of his most handsome cock. My Roger was quite well endowed, so it was bigger than my usual candles. I would add my pee and menstrual blood and the fragrance I always made for Roger (It smells like sex) to the wax and after making the candle I would charge it by using it as a dildo to get some lady juice on it. I would also make a vagina candle with a dose of pee and jasmine (Roger's favorite scent on me) in the wax. 

It is very important to NEVER ever use a penis candle by itself if you are trying to spice up your sex life. If you get him all fired up there is no telling where he might wind up sticking his dick. That would be especially true of Roger. Not so much my Beloved, but it's best not to take any chances. 

On the morning of, I get the penis candle all nice and juicy with a little self loving and then I pee on the vagina candle. That night I carve the name of my lover on the penis candle and etch my name on the vagina candle. I light my white protection candle and incense to fit my mood. Then I very clearly state my intentions for what I want to happen. For the next six days I light the candles at the time I want Roger to ring me up and leave both candles burning until I go to bed. Before extinguishing the candles I drip wax from the penis candle on the vagina candle and vice versa. Each day I move the candles a little closer together until they are... Well, you get the picture... 

After working this spell Roger always called me to plan a visit. Most of the time we were bobbing like bunnies by the seventh day. This spell had a 100% success rate for me when used on Roger. I never tried it on my Beloved because I didn't have the patience to wait 7 days to see him and we rarely went that long without seeing each other, unless I was off visiting my sister or he was out of town on an extended tour. During those times you had better believe I had a heavily pissed on black candle going on his dick to keep him in line. 

So, there you  have it. Fill free to modify as you wish to do so. Magick, after all, is a deeply personal experience. If you do have to buy your candles, don't forget to anoint them with your favorite oils. Don't be afraid to try spicing them up with some pee, menstrual blood, or lady juices. 

Love and light...

Prosperity Magick


Over the weekend we attended a class at Draconis Arcanum on prosperity magick. One of the topics covered was a prosperity bowl. I thought it was a nifty idea so I had the human set one up this morning. 

Our main prosperity goal is to find a means to move to Tampa. Thus we began by printing a photo of our desired location and added it to the bowl. 

We topped the photo with green prosperity rice. It is food colored rice mixed with shredded money. Ours was provided by the shop owner Rebecca's personal stash. In the class we also learned to add a bit of the old green rice to every new batch you create to keep the energy going forward.

A prosperity bowl is a personal thing where you can really add anything you want to customize your desires. As you probably know, the human and I don't really play by any specific magickal rules. We pull from a bit of this and a dash of that and then advise on what suits her needs the best.

We added a Reiki pendant to keep all the human's charkas open and balanced.

A silver heart was added to invite new love into her life.

Our lucky frog sets of the mix nicely as a personal trinket of fortune.

For our stones we went with hematite for focus, courage, and confidence. And citrine for for success and prosperity.

We finished off with loose change she finds on her walks with the Harry beast.

In the class it was suggested to have a God or Goddess with you work closely with to watch over your bowl. We went with a photo of my Beloved instead. :-) He was good at making money, so ought to be a good protector and mojo stirrer for our bowl.

After the bowl was completed we added a white candle for positive and radiant energy, stated our intentions, and cast our prosperity spell.

We will relight the candle with a regular frequency to keep the magick coming and also drop in any more spare change found on our walks.

So, there you have it, how to create a prosperity bowl.

Mother's Day


I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't a very good mother. I knew this was something I wasn't cut out to do as soon as I realized I was pregnant with Amalie. My Beloved was thrilled that I was with child, but in all honesty if abortion had been legal in 1969 I would have sneaked away and gotten one. When Amalie was born that September I tried to get my sister to take the baby back to Raleigh with her, but Olivia wasn't having any of that. She was excellent in fulfilling her auntly duties when we were together, but most of the time she was in Raleigh and I was in Tampa.

Carmella was the best Auntie ever and pretty much Amalie's surrogate mother. She did all she could to help me with such a huge responsibility. When Amalie was a small child Carmella was so busy with her work as a midwife that she couldn't always be there for us, try as she might.

The person who never got the credit she so much deserved was my Beloved's sweet mother. She was a strong woman and she loved Amalie unconditionally. How many women would have been so accepting of a child her very favorite son fathered outside of his marriage? I didn't think it was fair to expect her to be close to me, but she was always there for Amalie any time she was needed. My biggest regret maybe that I didn't leave Amalie with her Grammy when I ran away to Raleigh that last time after my Beloved's demise. Amalie's Grammy made sure that her illegitimate grandchild was given a part of her son's estate. We probably would not have gotten anything if not for her.

I don't even know how many times in the early 1970's that I would get all frazzled and call Grammy in tears. She would calmly tell me to bring Amalie over to her house. Or if I was really freaking out she would come get her and keep Amalie until I was able to recompose. Maybe sometimes being a good mother is knowing what you can't handle and having someone there you know you can count on. I definitely had that in my Beloved's mother.

In Always we tell the story of how Amalie was introduced to her Grammy. It is the sweetest and cleanest of all my stories and only .99 cents.



This short story was channeled to Jezebel Jorge from her spirit guide, Odessa, along with a little assistance from her beloved.

Odessa’s beloved takes her out on a special Mother’s Day date to meet his mom. Graham’s recently widowed mother is in for quite a surprise when she finds out her favorite son has fathered a child with an empathic medium.

His witchy red haired mistress stuns them all when she channels his deceased father to give them all a message from the other side.

 ***Warning*** Other than Odessa dropping a couple of F–Bombs, this one isn't nearly as smutty as her other stories.

A Dose of Salts



No witch should be without Epson salts in her bathroom. Nothing beats a nice long soak in candle light bubble bath. Our favorite is Dr. Teal's Chamomile. Not only does it smell great, bur the chamomile adds to the relaxation experience. Chamomile has been used as a traditional medicine for thousands of years to calm anxiety and settle stomachs. Carmella also used to make a chamomile tea that always soothed me nervous tummy.

Dr. Teal's Lavender is also a good choice, Lavender has a scent that’s a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean, and calm. We have a lavender plant under the bedroom window. In magick lavender is known as the herb of attraction. Got a hot date? prepare for it with a soak in lavender infused Espon salts.

If you prefer your bath time in the morning, you can't go wrong with Dr. Teal's Peppermint. It is an invigorating scent that will perk you up and get you on your way.Peppermint is used to attract abundance when used in magick.

How does this Epson salt stuff work?

Epsom salts dissolved in warm water are easily absorbed through the skin where they immediately go to work inside our bodies. The magnesium ions break apart from Epsom salt molecules and begin to relieve stress by promoting the production of serotonin and reducing the effects of adrenaline. Magnesium also plays a critical role in the production of energy in cells, helping us to feel invigorated without causing feelings of restlessness or anxiety.

Epson salts are wonderful for muscle soreness and sprains and strains. Take a good soak after doing yard work and you won't be stiff or sore the next day.

Drink too much? Who doesn't on occasion? I recommend a Bloody Mary and a grilled cheese sandwich followed by a soak in Dr. Teal's Eucalyptus while drinking lots and lots of water. Follow this with a nap and you'll awaken fit as a fiddle.

The foaming bubble baths are also a nice edition to your Epson salt soaks. That would also make a great gift for Mother's Day.

There are so many other uses for Epson salt. It really is good for just about anything that ails you.

What spirit guides can't do


What can't I do? My connection to my human is so strong that I can do much more than most guides. When she allows it I can take control of her body for a limited amount of time. If you are a beginner, DO NOT try this.

A spirit guide can't make anyone do anything against their own will. We can hint and suggest and prod, but we can't make you do something you don't want to do.

Not all spirit guides and physically reveal themselves to their humans. It takes and lot of power and saps a great deal of energy from your human. The only time I can through to my human in solid human form it drained her so bad she was in bed for three days. We can show you a photo in your mind and that is really much better and easier to accomplish.

Unless you happen to get a special guide with this particular gift, we are not psychic. We don't know what is going to happen next anymore than you do.

We can't manipulate lottery drawings or sporting events or anything of that nature. Your guess is as good as mine on selecting the winning powerball numbers.

What we can do is offer you emotional support and guidance. And maybe just maybe we can open a few doorways to help you get what your heart deeply desires. It just requires a profound belief and deep trust and it does not happen overnight.

My human has been aware of my presence going on six years now and we are very close. You too can develop that type of bond with your guide if you will just give them a chance.

Guide Duties



Your spirit guide can help you with all kinds of things.

Misplaced something? Ask your guide to help you find it.

Need a good parking place? Ask your guide to save you a prime parking spot.

There all all kinds of parlor tricks we can perform for your amusement. Requests for such simple tasks are a good way to open the lines of communication with your guide.

I like to pick songs to play on my human's iTunes when she puts it on shuffle. It is a simple exercise you can do with your guide. Ask them some type of question you have been wondering about and then tell them you would like an answer in the form of the song that plays when you click shuffle on the iTunes. Think about the meaning of the song and then thank your guide for responding.

My most important and main assignment in working with my human is being her gateway for communication with the other side. That is how this whole mediumship thing works. Your guide opens the door to the other side and has complete control on who does or doesn't come through. Consider us the phone operators of the universe.

Want to know how to spot a phony medium? That would be any medium who doesn't give full credit to their guides. That Long Island Medium on TLC is phony as all get out. Spirits don't just pop in and out like that. Any guide worth a shit has absolute control over when and if spirits come through.

Come back tomorrow and I'll tell you a few things a guide can't do. Until then, don't forget about our book, Give it to Your Guide.

Let me introduce myself...


So what exactly is a spirit guide?

A spirit guide is a disincarnate spirit who has completed his/her human incarnations and moved on to the next realm. Our purpose is to provide guidance and support to a human still in the physical earth bound realm.

Every one has at least one active alpha guide and at different times during your life you can have several different guides. One guide can't know it all, so for instance, if my human needs some type of healing or energy work I call in my friend Carmella since she is a Reiki master.

You have usually shared previous incarnations with your guide. My human and I have spent several life times together. We've been sisters, lovers, rivals, and besties in previous life times.

Guides are assigned as the Goddess deems appropriate for a certain phase of your human incarnation. It is also a mutual decision. My human could decide she didn't want me any more and I would be forced to go away. Or I could decide I'm not all that fond of her and ask for another assignment.

A great guide / human partnership is a mutual give and take.

I know I would just go nuts if I didn't have a human who talks to me and recognize my presence. Maybe there are some guides who prefer the strong and silent type. Not me!

If you haven't yet been properly introduced to your guide I can't stress how important it is to just start talking to him or her. They are there and they are listening. The more you talk to us, the stronger we become, and the easier it is for you to recognize our presence.

Light a candle when you want to feel our presence. We like the energy of the flame and it will strengthen our connection.

Invite us to enter your dreams. It is easiest for us to begin communicating with you when you are in a relaxed state of sleep.

Come back tomorrow and I will tell you about some of the things I do for my human and suggest some things you can ask your guide to do for you...

Can't wait to read more? You can always order our book, Give It To Your Guide: How To Connect With And Accept Help From Spirit.

Sage


Sage (Salvia officinales)
Gender: Masculine. Planet: Jupiter. Element: Air. 
Immortality, Longevity, Wisdom, Protection, Wishes.
Deities: Consus, Jupiter, Zeus.

Sage is one of the basic herbs in my magickal cupboard. It has long been held in high regard as a healing plant, hence its Latin name salvia, which means to save or to heal.
In ancient times it was believed to ward off evil, especially snakebites, and to increase women's fertility. It was particularly popular in the Middle Ages as a curative for everything, even the Plague.

Used widely in cooking, especially as a meat flavoring, it has anhidrotic, antibiotic, antifungal, astringent, antispasmodic, estrogenic, and hypoglycemic properties. Current studies support its use to manage the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.


Use an infusion of the Sage Leaves to aid digestion, or as part of a honey wine to fight colds and fever. Also make up a rinse for dark hair to help cover up the gray. It also helps treat dandruff and can ease many skin discomforts. If made into cream it is good for muscular pain.

Sage is a Magickal representative of wisdom. It draws wisdom in, keeps it close, and encourages the wisdom of others. It can also be used potently in Magickal spells dealing with money. It is a sacred herb used by the Native Americans, and carries the virtues of strength, mental health, wisdom, and banishes all evil.


Sage is also a main ingredient in smudge sticks.

Carry Sage leaves in your pocket or a sachet to promote financial gain. Burn the leaves to increase wisdom or gain guidance from your spirit guide . Make a wish and write it on a sage leaf, and then hide it beneath your pillow, if you dream about your wish over the next three nights, your wish will come true.

Use Sage to reverse a spell by lighting a dried Sage leaf on fire. Blow out the flame, leaving a burning red ember. Slowly create a large circle in the air with the Sage smoke. Make the circle three times Widdershins (counter clockwise). While making each of the three circles, focus your intent and chant to undo the previous spell. It is best if you write your own chant, it should be short and to the point.

Smudge Bowl Mixture:
For clearing a New House place equal parts of Sage, Sweet grass and Juniper.

Strawberry


Strawberries are my most favorite fruit. Back in my human incarnations nothing beat a spinach and strawberry salad with roasted pecans and a drizzle of vinaigrette dressing. We also have strawberry plants in our raised garden bed.

I saw the following on The Old Crone's Corner and thought I would share:

Strawberry (Fragaria vesca)
Gender: Feminine. Planet: Venus. Element: Water.
Deity: Freya
Attracts Success, Love, Luck

The leaves of the Strawberry plant have diuretic and astringent properties which, taken as a tea, can treat intestinal and urinary problems. Consumption of the leaf also purifies the blood and may be taken to treat night sweats and stimulate digestion. Strawberries are rich in antioxidents and Vitamin C. Eating Strawberries improves heart health, memory function and can help decrease blood pressure. Use with caution as some people are allergic.

The leaves of the Strawberry are a particularly powerful magical protective charm for expecting mothers. The fruit is served to attract love, the leaves are carried for luck and protection.

Folklore tells that Strawberries are much loved by the Fae. The fruit is laid out to appease mischievous fairies as offerings in the hopes that happy well fed Fae will assist by strengthening crops and bringing good health and increased production to domestic livestock.


Another tale is to be careful with whom you share a double Strawberry. It is destined that the two of you may fall in love.


If you have a birthmark that is the size, shape and/or color of a Strawberry, this was seen as a sign of a Witch.
