The Elements (Water)

The Elements…

Are believed to be the building blocks of the universe. In many pagan practices there are 5 elements earth, air, fire, water and spirit/divine. Though it is not unheard of for there to be more then just the 5. It is believed that everything in the world around us contains one or more of these elemental energies.


Water is a feminine element and governs spells involving mirrors. The energy of this element is vital to our comfort as humans, for it contains within it the essence of love. Water is a love element. It washes over us like a wave when we see our mates, supports us when we swim within it, gives us life when we are dehydrated. Move your hand through a stream, lake, pool, or bowl full of water. Feel its cool essences it's soft touch. Listen to water trickling about into a pool. As you do these things, remember that we contain Water energy within ourselves as well. Water is the cleansing, healing, psychic, loving element. It is purification, intuition, mysteries of the self, compassion and family, friendship, marriage, happiness, fertility, and pleasure.

The Elements (Fire)

The Elements…

Are believed to be the building blocks of the universe. In many pagan practices there are 5 elements earth, air, fire, water and spirit/divine. Though it is not unheard of for there to be more then just the 5. It is believed that everything in the world around us contains one or more of these elemental energies.



Fire is a masculine element and governs all candle magick. Fire is a creator and destroyer. It warms the homes we live in, cooks the food we eat, and fuels our passions. Unlike the other elements, Fire cannot exist in physical form without consuming something else. It is for this reason that fire is seen as a transforming element. Changing objects into new forms: heat, light, ash, and smoke. Immerse yourself in the energy of fire by placing your hand on a warm rock, smell the smoke from a burning fire or gazing into a candles flame. By doing so one comes to realize that fire also exists within one’s self. Fire is believed to need to be controlled to be of benefit to us. When we light a candle, we call upon its powers, but also limit them. With this said we must also learn to control the fire within ourselves. Fire is the element of change, passion, authority, leadership, creativity, motivation, will power, drive and sensuality. It is sexuality, both physical and spiritual. Fire is essential to spells and rituals of healing, purification, sex, breaking bad habits or destroying illness and disease.

Fire protection and Binding spell

Of course since the element of fire governs over candle magick I am going to share a candle spell. 

Items needed: 
Black candle (one that drips well is best)
Picture of the person causing you harm (if you don't have a picture then write on a piece of paper as much info about the person as possible)
White ribbon 

Cast your circle and light the candle. Fold the picture or paper. Begin to wrap the ribbon around the picture or paper left to right. As you wrap the ribbon say:

"I bind you (name here) from causing further harm 
in my life and those of the ones I love. 
I bind and remove all power you
may have over me or may send towards me."

Visualize the white ribbon acting as a white light wrapping around the person and removing all bad energy they have been sending to you. 

Once the ribbon is fully wrapped around the image or paper you take the black candle and drip the wax over the wrapped item. Coating it completely, so this part will take some time. As you coat the paper or picture see the black wax protecting you and your loved ones from this person. 

When it is coated to your liking place in a safe place, where no one will disturb it. Check on it every two months. If there are cracks, breaks in the wax  this could mean the person is breaking through the protection. All you need to do is recoat with more black candle wax.

The earth is seen as our mother, which might be why it is considered a feminine element. Governing over fertility, prosperity, business, and stability. This is the element we are closest with, since it is our home living out our lives, where we raise our food, and bury our deceased providing a foundation for our circle of life.  Earth doesn't necessarily have to represent the physical Earth/planet, but those parts that are stable, solid, and dependable.

 Lemon Salt Scrub:
Since one of the correspondences for Earth is salt I thought this would be a fun and easy recipe to do.
Items you will need:

5 tablespoons sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lemon

First mix the olive oil and sea salt together. Once the salt gets coated by the oil, the lemon won’t dissolve it! Next cut the lemon in half and squeeze over the salt + oil. Mix and mash. (Feel free to adjust the recipe to your liking.) Now scrub away

Working a spell

Basic Working Spell Outline

We all have different ways and routines when it comes to casting. So what I have done here is put together a basic guideline that you all may find helpful. These are in no way set in stone and can be changed to suit your needs. This is just a suggestion.

Ritual Preparation:
Choose a time and a place. What tools you need, make sure to set them up in the space you will be using. How are you going to raise energy (ie: dance, chanting, drumming, etc.) Choose how you want to cast and close a circle.

Cleanse yourself and your magickal space:
You can do this with a ritual bath for yourself, which might I add is so relaxing. Through meditation to help calm and focus your mind. You can cleanse your space with a ritual broom, incense, burning herbs or with a cleansing potion (used in a spray bottle). How ever feels right to you.

Cast the Circle:
Please see blog post “Casting”

Invocation of the Divine:
This part is to call upon the elements and/or a deity into your circle.

Statement of purpose:
This is simply to tell the Divine why you have called him/her to the circle.

Magickal Working:
 This would be casting the spell or ritual you came to cast. Remember to ground your energy when you have completed the working.

Offering: (optional)
This practice is normally done during a ritual but is not unheard of for more powerful spell work. Normally an offering is food like cakes or bread and wine/mead or milk. Eat a small piece of offering and then place the rest in a offering bowl for the God/dess. When the spell is over do not throw the offering away. That is disrespectful and can upset the deity you offered it to. It should be placed or poured outside given back to the earth.

Thanking the Divine:
Thank the deity for helping you in your work and listening to your request.

Close the Circle:

This is the time you dismiss and thank the elements and open the circle. 

As I said before this is just to give you a guideline as to what can be done for a spell. Not every step must be followed when casting. I simply find when I am writing something out it is nice to see an example layout of what is could look like.

Spell writing

 Even though I will provide many helpful spells you can cast it is always good to know how to write your own spells. It makes the spell more personal and I feel is an essential aspect to add to your practice. Here are some questions you will find helpful to ask yourself while writing a spell. 

Writing your own spells and rituals

Know the Basics:
Know what magick is to you. Know different ways use the energy within and around you. How to go about raising, directing and grounding the energy. Know how to cast a magick circle, open the circle and close the circle. Know the basic outline of a spell.

Know the Intent or Purpose:
What is it you are trying to do? Are you looking to heal a illness, sell a house, or to celebrate a sabbat? Before you begin any magickal working, you should have a firm grasp on what outcome you are seeking. Be as specific as possible.

Know the Best Time to Work a Spell:
Do you know what type moon phase is best for money or healing spells? What days of the week are best for certain types of magick? What about the time of day, how will that affect your workings? Learn how these things affect magickal workings so you will know when to work your spell.

Know your Correspondences:
Learning which colors will bring luck, what herbs help in protection, what deity to appeal to is very useful if you wish to add those things in your spell. Learning about how different things can help your workings can only help in your goal.

Holy wow! 25,000 page views! Thank you to everyone who has been such an amazing support in my writing and for reading what I post :-) It does mean a lot to me that you all enjoy the work I put on here. I will strive to continue to provide you with fun and exciting information. Blessed be )O(

Is to 'put forth' energy or focus your will for a specific purpose like a spell or ritual.

  Yes spells are fun and a big part of what pagans do, it might even be why some started looking into paganism, but there are rules as well. Please don’t ever just jump into spell casting without knowing what can happen in return. Read every spell carefully and make sure you feel comfortable with it before casting. Feel free to add or take away to a spell, but again keep the laws/rules/guidelines in mind when writing a spell.

  These spells I post here are either written myself, or have collected from studies or fellow witches over the years. A few you may find on the internet because many pagans share the spells that have helped them in hopes it may help another in their path in this faith. That is why I am passing these on in this blog. In hopes that they will help you and those you love as much as they have helped me.

Casting a Circle

  This is a very important step to casting. A circle should be cast before you perform any spell or ritual. A circle protects you from any outside forces while you are conducting your spell. One should never step out of the circle once cast. It is a good idea to have all your tools on your alter before casting a circle. If you do need to step out of the circle use your athame or wand to cut a door.

To cast a Circle

Envision a circle surrounding yourself and the space you are working in. If you need a tool to help you project your energy you can use something like a wand, staff, athame, crystal or what ever you use to help you direct your energy.

You then cast your circle. There is no set way for you to cast a circle. Again these are a few I like to use. Feel free to rewrite them so they fit your needs or even write your own.

A simple Circle

"I call the light of the starry heavens
I ask the lady to weave for me
A boundary encircling me in love and trust
A circle woven of stars and moonlight and morning dew
I seek power
I seek protection
I seek empowerment
I seek magick
Thus I do conjure thee, O circle of power
So mote it be" (my BOS)

Sacred Space

"Here we create this sacred space
Here in love adore this place
Together work, together play
And love the only rule we say

The Circle's wide enough for more
Inside the Sun illumes the door
Wider still and then we see
Another Circle merged with me

Shed the flesh that veils the light
Strip away the mirror's blight
Open wide and shine within
Look around, we all are kin."
(By Mischa from Creating Circles & Ceremonies)

Circle of Power

"O Circle of Power, I conjure thee,
That thou may be a boundary,
'Tween realms of flesh and Ancient Ones.
This shield 'gainst bane and harm becomes
A meeting place of Truth, Love, Joy,
Containing the power that we employ.
By God and Goddess, we conjure thee
This is our will, So Mote it Be!"
(By Crow Dragontree from Creating Circles & Ceremonies)

~*Herbal Bath Teas*~

These are very strong "teas" that you add to your bath. So much of the commercial bath products we buy are very harsh on our skin, personally speaking I have very sensitive skin and have bad allergic reactions to most products out there. I have gone to using things that are as natural as I can get so recipes like this are helpful and I have found are so easy to make.

 You can once you get used to making such recipes experiment with combinations as long as you follow the basic recipe on the amounts. If you are allergic to plants of any type do be cautious, but seeing as you also are not ingesting the tea you might be okay keeping with the guidelines but there are always other herbs you can use to substitute.

Skin Soothing Bath Tea

You will need:
2 tablespoons dried thyme
2 tablespoons dried calendula blossoms
2 tablespoon dried chamomile blooms
1 quart boiling water

Add the herbs to the boiling water and steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain the infusion and add to your bathwater. NOTES: You can use just chamomile and double the amount.

Hello all!

 It took me much longer then I thought to get this ball rolling but life does seem to happen and gives one little time to recover or settle down before the next thing comes around. Though I think I am now to the point where I can now put all the research and writing I have been doing over the last year to work for me, which is such a nice feeling. As always I hope you all enjoy and find some useful information.

This time around I am going to try some new layouts and themes then I did before. Change things up a bit and have fun with it, but as always provide some amazing information for my readers. 


This week I want to look at amulets. We all seem to have at least one item that we carry around or wear that falls into this definition and many know very little about what it is their amulet can do for them. An amulet is a magically charged object you wear or carry which deflects against negative energies and attracts good energies. It is a close relative of a talisman which means "to initiate into the mysteries” consists of any object intended to bring good luck and/or protection to its owner. Examples of amulets would be a generally small item made of natural materials such as stone, wood, shell, hair, bone gem and so on.

Here is a sample list of what can be made into an amulet along with the magickal meaning. 

Acorn: Attracts the opposite gender, increases income, divinitory powers, and prosperity.

Agate: Good luck, meditation, protection, health, purification.

Akhet: Represents the rising sun, said to give wear vigor of the sun god Ra.

Aladdin's Lamp: Good luck, happiness, make dreams and wishes come true.

Alligator Teeth: Protects you from all forms of sorcery and danger.
Amber: Balance, harmony, protection, psychic power.
Amethyst: Power, peace, protection, spirituality, intelligence, luck, psychic power, true love.

Animal Shapes: Amulets made from any material representing the shapes of animals. They are supposed to give the wearer the desirable qualities of the animal.

Ankh: Good health, promotes fertility, and strengthens the psychic powers.

Arrowhead: Protects from enemies, bad luck, hexes, jealousy, evil spirits, and all negative forces.

Bear Amulet: Wearing a bear claw will help a woman during childbirth and increase physical strength.

Bell: Ward off the evil eye and dispel hostile spirits.

Billiken: A good luck ornament in the shape of a human figure.

Bull: To increase fertility in women and men.

Cat:  Prophecy, luck, protections, psychic ability and the granting of secret wishes.

Candle Wax: Candle wax can be carried for a week after used in a ritual and/or spell to keep those powers used, available.

Chains: Stop others from using their psychic powers on you or hexing you.

Cross: Life and divine protection..

Crown Ring: Success at work, love drawing and for good luck in gambling.
