Brooms have been a symbol of witchcraft for centuries. There are many magical uses of the broom. Sweep from east to west rids a home of negativity. Sweeping in a clockwise position around you creates a powerful protection circle. And then of course there are floor sweeps. Basically, what you do is take about a quarter cup of mixed herbs for your desired purpose and mix with either baking soda for cleansing, banishing or hex breaking or cornstarch/ corn meal for prosperity. Then you sprinkle the mixture around your home and if possible leave it over night. Then starting at your front door sweep towards the center of your home if you are trying to draw something to you. For this you may dispose of the sweep in a respectful way like burying it by your front door or adding it to your compost pile. If you are trying to…

I Hate to Rain On Your Parade But It is Important

I hope everyone is having a super Labor Day. I am going to do some work around the house today. I hate to be the one to rain on your parade, but it is necessary. Everyone knows we are in a financial crises right now. The ISP provider did extend our bill till tomorrow. We now almost have two more to raise the money needed to pay the bill. I guarantee you if we make it through this month, I will never ask you for another dime.

As I stated earlier no amount is too small. All donations are welcome and will be put to go use. You got up this morning and there wasn’t any daily posts, no Witches’ Almanac, no correspondences, no Let’s talk Witch. Stop and think would you miss them permanently? You miss the other information we supply daily? Heck would you miss us? I know I would miss all of you. I love doing what I do every day. But right now circumstances are out of my control.

If you wish for us to continue our work and our daily posts, we ask you to please make a donation. Time is running out very quickly. I appreciate every penny, nickel and dime we get. It all adds up eventually. Please give what you can. We need you now more than ever.

Thank you so much for any amount you can give,

Lady A

Let’s Talk Witch – Spell Structure

While every spell is (or should be) different and unique, there is still a basic structure to follow. A statement of intent, the making of the spell in whatever form you choose, empowering or charging up your spell and the clean-up. Following is a list of things to consider when writing your spell.

• Purpose of the spell— what results are you seeking and how will they come about.

• The type of spell —what method will you use to cast your spell.

• Inclusion of Deities or other supernatural entities— Do you need or want their help?

• Timing of the spell —does it require a particular time or day of the week, moon phase or sign or time of year.

• The materials for the spell— what do you have to hand, what can you use or improvise with, or what can…

A Little Humor for Your Day – Best Excuses for Not Going to Work

Best Excuses for Not Going to Work

1.) “If it is all the same to you I won’t be coming in to work. The voices told me to clean all the guns today.”
2.) “When I got up this morning I took two Ex-Lax in addition to my Prozac. I can’t get off the john, but I feel good about it.”
3.) “I set half the clocks in my house ahead an hour and the other half back an hour Saturday and spent 18 hours in some kind of space-time continuum loop, reliving Sunday (right up until the explosion). I was able to exit the loop only by reversing the polarity of the power source exactly e*log(pi) for the clocks in the house while simultaneously rapping my dog on the snout with a rolled up New York Times. Accordingly, I will now be in late, or early.”
4.) “I have to go in for a blood transfusion… My stigmata’s acting up again.”
5.) “I can’t come in to work today because I’ll be stalking my previous boss, who fired me for not showing up for work. OK?

7.) “I am stuck in the blood pressure machine down at the Food Giant.”
8.) “Yes, I seem to have contracted some attention-deficit disorder and, hey, how about them Skins, huh? So, I won’t be able to, yes, could I help you? No, no, I’ll be sticking with Sprint, but thank you for calling.”
9.) “I accidentally converted my calendar from Julian to Gregorian and lost today.”
10.) “I just found out that I was switched at birth. Legally, I shouldn’t come to work knowing my employee records may now contain false information.
11.) “The psychiatrist said it was an excellent session. He even gave me this jaw restraint so I won’t bite things when I am startled.”
12.) “The dog ate my car keys and we have to hitchhike to the vet.”
13.) “Today I am compelled to remain an enigma.”
14.) “My mother-in-law has come back as one of the Undead and we must track her to her coffin to drive a stake through her heart and give her eternal peace. One day should do it.”

The Egyptian Goddess

Nut or Neuth; also spelled Nuit or Newet) was the goddess of the sky in the Ennead of Egyptian mythology. She was seen as a star-covered nude woman arching over the earth, or as a cow.

Her name is translated to mean ‘sky’ and she is considered one of the oldest deities among the Egyptian pantheon, with her origin being found on the creation story of Heliopolis. She was originally the goddess of the nighttime sky, but eventually became referred to as simply the sky goddess. Her headdress was the hieroglyphic of part of her name, a pot, which may also symbolize the uterus. Mostly depicted in nude human form, Nut was…

Witch Tip: Anointing Oil Bars

Originally posted on Where Spirit Stops:

I love to carry power objects like crystals and other tools with me in little pouches as I go about my day. I also love anointing oils, but these can be terribly messy to carry. Even a good, tightly sealed bottle seems to leak as it gets moved about and of course the glass could always break. So I’ve made a simple solution I’d like to share: anointing oil bars.

It’s very easy to make an oil into a solid bar and the result is lovely. You can select any oils, butters and fragrances that you like to create the perfect magical tool for what you need. I should mention that I don’t use available concordances but rather make up my own. So I even experimented with putting things like cinnamon and cocoa into the bars. Any powders or herbs you add will sink to the bottom, but if you’re…

Thursday Is Ruled By Jupiter

Thursday is a Jupiter day. Here is the day of the week for prosperity, abundance, and good health. Thursday is “Thor’s day.” This Norse god gave the day his name and many of his attributes, including strength and abundance. Some suggestions for Thursday enchantments would include:

Wearing a regal and royal shade of blue to see how it affects your mood and your magic. Other colors for the day include purple and green.

Carrying a turquoise tumbled stone in your pocket to draw a little protective and healing energy your way

Incorporating honeysuckle blossoms and cinquefoil foliage into prosperity charms

Calling on Thor for abundance, or on the Roman god Jupiter for the ability to peacefully referee a fight

Adding a few oak leaves—which are sacred to these Thursday gods—to your charms to see how much better your spell…
