Cedargrass Oracle
Summer: The mark of the clover signals the arrival of our patron lord, our heliocentric life enriched.

Should you find a patch of clover, offer your time and disturb not the honey bee. Should you find a patch, pick 12 stems and weave them together, using the longest stem to wrap around the base and tie it off, carefully. Take this wand to the river or sea and offer up your wishes for the sun to fertilize by tossing it in.

A wish made on a clover wand is sure to come true. Should you find a bush of lavender, might you do the same to banish obstacles.

Rune Binding, A Simple Aid

Sigils, runes, symbols, letters, and engravings have been the magical consummation of Consciousness beyond the Sacred Voice since the first days the human mind thought of ways to communicate itself to others. Since then, we have perhaps in the west forgotten how sacred these letters and symbols are even in the simplest of uses: writing.

In February of 2007, I created this spell from the study I used to do as a Pagan initiate of the Asatru pantheon. It was in runes I learned how powerful the letters of a language had been and what uses they had when drawn on the human body.

This spell was created for one purpose only, to magically bind a rune to your body to allow that rune to work with your psyche awake or non— the binding will lend you the rune’s power until it slowly fades from the skin. I encourage that you should only do this if the rune truly calls to you. Runes are deep, ancient, energetic, powerful, and very curious symbols which are ruled by beings, gods, energies, realms, and so on.

Psychic Conciseness

Before you begin reading for other people, whether professionally or personally, first make sure that you’re comfortable in your knowledge base of Tarot and your intuitive abilities. By now, you should have a comprehensive understanding of Tarot and you should be able to make use of any resources which will aid you. As a psychic reader, you should be able to not only understand the language of Tarot and your own language with Tarot, but also you must allow others to understand you. Vernacular is defined as a person’s day-to-day vocabulary and way of speaking. It is the words people use and how they use them, especially how they use them wrongly.

Part of one’s vernacular when communicating with almost anyone is to have the practice of conciseness, which is being able to get straight to the point without missing the point. For example.

Question: Will my mother be alright? She fainted at work and had to be rushed home.

Cards: Ace of Cups and the Nine of Swords

Too Little → Your mom will be alright. She just needs rest.

Too Much → Your mom is just fine. She was probably very stressed out about something close to her and her body had to give her some kind of sign to consciously show her that she had to begin taking more care of herself. She seems to have been working herself to the bone, which had an emotional and mental affect on her, which health is in mind, body, and spirit, so the body gave out due to the imbalance of the mind. Spiritually, she will probably begin having imbalances which will throw her into a nervous breakdown if she keeps continuing her stressful ways, which is why the Nine of Swords appeared. She will be completely fine if she just takes everything simply and tries to let things go.

Conciseness → Tell your mother that she’ll be fine if she learns to let go of the worry she’s had regarding something very emotionally close to her— perhaps a lover, a family member, etc. She needs to take up some stress-relief therapies such as hot baths, exercising, or journaling because she shouldn’t bottle things in anymore, which is why she fainted.

Analysis → With too little, the point was completely missed, which was telling the querent what led up to their mother fainting and giving a proper remedy. With too much, the point was drowned in all sorts of irrelevant tangents, that although were true, they were just unnecessary. In giving too much, there are so many pathways to follow from what was said, leaving the querent wondering about everything that was said, such as how she will let things go, what the mind, body, and spirit stuff was, what the stressful things were that caused her to faint, and how she will recover. With being concise, the point was given, which was that she was stressing over something emotionally close to her and a remedy was given with instructions.

A new Tarot deck to ring in the year. Thanks to a dear friend of mine, I now own this stunning realistic deck called the Witches Tarot. It’s full of witchcraft symbolism, paganism, art and symbolism from the Middle Ages, dragons, mystical scenes, mermaids, and beautiful men and women as the court cards. I love how the Pentacles suit incorporate POC. It comes with 78 cards and a 300-page book all about the new meanings, the card art, and there comes spells in the back with the cards.

What are the implications of casting an honesty spell? If you have any information at all about honesty spells I would greatly appreciate it, thank you so much

Honesty spells are interesting. If I want someone to tell me the truth, I just perform divination readings with Tarot cards… no need for a spell from my point of view, but if you really need the truth and you have no cards, I’d suggest meditating and allowing your higher self to guide you to the answers. If you’re looking for a charm to place over someone, just be careful of the repercussions.. magic can backfire when we do it onto others. I’d only do an honesty spell for benevolent purposes only.

For an honesty spell, I’d wear rosemary oil while giving a sprig of rosemary to the person as a gift with the intention of them speaking the truth to you. You can also just place it under their bed so they will dream about having a terrible conscience until they speak the truth, but then again, this could be affecting someone’s free will. Attach a piece of rose or lavender to this sprig.

You can also burn rosemary, think of the person, and say,

I attract the truth to be free,

When in my presence share with me,

Your lips the words, know I must,

In your faith might I trust,

My ears wide to hear your mind,

And yes your heart ever so kind.

To tell me what you have to hide.

Tell me that truth which you’ll confide.

And an optional closure for good measure,

And so this charm be good for you,

Expire on the day you spew,

The secrets I have wished to know,

And by the rede, I do follow.

Mercury Rx Charm…. Major mistake!

I would love to inform anyone and everyone who saw my Mercury Retrograde post and may have archived or tried the Mercury Rx Charm I posted with that article…. it was a terrible mistake and I want to let you all know that I apologize deeply for that mistake. I usually try my best to review what pictures I post. The charm was meant to have a clockwise arrow around the glyph, but what was posted in the graphic was completely wrong.

If you have tried the charm, I apologize if it aggravated your Karmic Debt as of late. Using this charm with an anti-clockwise arrow would increase your homework for Merc Rx (which would be good for those who are more of an over-achiever and would like more homework) and unnecessarily burden those who weren’t looking for that much karmic load at this time.

It is with deepest apologies that I hope you all accept my mistake as human and my apology. There isn’t a good excuse for this error, as this is a witchcraft blog of sorts and should maintain a strict level of accuracy. That type of error sincerely shouldn’t have occurred. I have personally messaged those who had their /ask open who liked or reblogged on that post, until I had to wait to ask because of Tumblr’s policies of asking too frequently, so here I am. How ironic that during Merc Rx even I have made such a booboo for a post to ease it.

If you have used it, here is to correct image after all:

Thanks again, guys.. I’ll definitely review much, much closer now. Mistakes happen.. especially at this time, I guess. :)

Stay Out Powder

So, I came home from a weekend getaway to hear that some very strange things went down over the weekend. According to my lover, the garbage can had been knocked over twice, the heavy VCR and DVD player that was on the third shelf of our bookcase in the basement had been knocked onto the floor, and the next day, all the stuff on the bottom of the shelf had been knocked onto the floor. We’re not sure if our cats had done it, but they’re all mature cats and I just find it hard to believe a cat could move heavy equipment from the third shelf of a high bookcase.

When we first moved into this condo, we did have some very serious paranormal activity, such as hearing voices, seeing apparitions, objects being moved, glasses being broken, entities attacking me and my pets, things being flown off shelves at work in front of coworkers, and the old poltergeist who lived here doing crazy things, such as groping the pretty female house guests. He’d mumble, walk about, give me oppressive energy daggers, and even mess with my mom at night. I had a paranormal team come out and the evidence was startling: EVPs with my name being spoken, they got him to turn the flashlight on and off for a fw minutes straight, a suicide victim came through to the medium who crossed her over (come to find out, a woman in our condo community did commit suicide), and we realized there were hundreds of spirits coming through my condo basement as the EVPs recorded all of their voices.

The most recent activity has been my valuable gold sheen obsidian sphere being hidden behind some paint cans underneath the basement steps…. yes, how did it really get there? Now, if you’re like me and you try to reason belief and logic, you’ll try anything to debunk a paranormal phenomenon. Mostly, I do, but tonight… I was fairly shocked. Garbage cans? Probably the cats. Tons of heavy equipment being knocked onto the floor from a third shelf? Sketchy.

Either way, here’s a powder I whipped up tonight just to make sure. All you do is grind these things together and sprinkle the powder at the foundation of your home inside or outside. If you’re worried about your pets, sprinkle the powder in the wax on top of a candle or tea light and let it burn in every level of the home.

Necessities

  • Mortar and pestle,
  • Parchment and writing utensil,
  • Cauldron and lighter,
  • Smudge wand,
  • 1 tsp cactus soil,
  • 1 garlic husk,
  • 1 tsp sea salt,
  • 1 handful of lavender flowers,
  • Dried basil, rosemary, and cayenne,
  • 3 whole cloves, or cinnamon bark chips,
  • 3 cedar or pine leaves,
  • 3 sage leaves, or 1/2 tsp ground sage,
  • Pinch of selenite dust,
  • Your dead skin, hair, or blood,
  • Pinch of valerian root,
  • A belonging of the spirit, or part of the house,

Ground yourself out. I take three deep breaths, releasing the stress and negative energy of my day. Smudge and ground everything you’re working with. The room, yourself, the ingredients, the tools, and your familiars if they’re present. You may call any of your spirit guides, deities, and/or elementals, but this can also be a quick job.

Put all of the ingredients into the mortar and grind it into a fine powder. You may burn frankincense, chant mantras, declare affirmations and intentions, or pray while preparing and grinding.

For the last necessity of the ingredients list, I don’t have anything that the spirit owned, so I chose to use a fiber from the carpet to represent the house as an entity. I took scissors and slowly cut it into the powder.

Write out your intentions on the parchment paper, dot it with rosemary or cedarwood oils for good measure (especially on top of protective symbols), burn it in the cauldron, and throw the ashes in the mix.

Then, I took the powder and sprinkled it around the foundation in the basement, sprinkled some into the drains and toilets to cleanse the “insides” of the house, and also put some in tea lights to burn while I smudged the house down, saying in my magical kunérian language with emphasis on the bold words,

Sha até se Ani dima, Sha até se Ya dima, Poj, ölabétil’ani masan juSha até se wazish mö dima. {X9} Até no se, Até no se, Até no be.

May peace be with us, May peace be with you, But evil spirits are not welcome. May peace be with our house. So shall it be, So shall it be, So it is done.

CAUTION: This will smell heavenly. Be careful of joyasms and fainting.

Crystal Grids, Setting up a barrier

Barriers are metaphysical fortresses that are created energetically to keep unwanted entities, energies, and influential forces out. They can be as elaborate as constructing a permanent crystal grid which harnesses the natural energy of an area, as intermediate as placing them around an area, and as simple as visualizing a dome of light.

What to do

  1. Place a tumbled quartz crystal (clear smokey, and/or amethyst) with a raw black tourmaline crystal on the four corners of your basement or main level and meditate in the center of that grid.
  2. Visualize the radiant light of the full moon (tonight is still full moon energy) or the universe coming down into your house and filling the entire building and land with purifying white light.
  3. Set the intention that only good spirits and the guests and residents you permit who seek the improvement of your life and soul may enter the barrier.
  4. Sprinkle tobacco around the outside of the house on windows sills and door ways. This keeps negative energy and emotions at bay, especially the negative emotional baggage of house guests.

Redo the meditation every full moon cycle (or every month) to recharge the grid. If you have a power generator master crystal, you may place it in the eastern corner or wall to absorb the energy of the sun during his voyage across the sky.

cedargrass:

Don’t waste that full moon !!! There are many ways to harness the power of the full moon and quite often many people catch it spontaneously, during the actual event itself. It is during these times a person isn’t quite prepared, yet is buzzing with energy that will only be available in totality…

Zodiacal Essential Oils

These essential oils can be worn any time of the year for their astrological correspondence, but note that they are strongest in those seasons. Please note that many essential oils are highly concentrated and should be treated with care as they are meant to be diluted onto the skin using a carrier oil, such as coconut oil, olive oil, or any kitchen oil. Consult a credible aromatherapy book and/or ask your doctor if you are allergic to these oils. You may also just put the oils on your clothing, but be careful of oily stains. The intent here is to allow the psyche to assimilate the positive qualities of a zodiac sign for your endeavors and atmosphere.

How To Use

  1. Find small jars or vials to store your mixtures in.
  2. Clean your wrists and hands.
  3. Dab an oil on your left hand.
  4. Dab your carrier oil on your right hand.
  5. Rub your wrists together.
  6. Dab any excess just under your chin and neck.
  7. Go about your day… connect with the magic of the zodiac.
