FRESHLY HANDMADE YULE SABBAT OIL AND TARTS IN “FROSTED BAYBERRY”!

Yes, I’ve already begun thinking about Yule; even though the leaves are still on the trees! However, if I don’t begin thinking about it now, it will be here and I won’t have accomplished anything for it! Truly, it’s a short stretch from where we are now, November 2, 2016 to December 21, 2016! My Coven will be doing our Yule Ritual on December 10 I believe, so that’s an even shorter stretch to the Sabbat!

This year I came up with a “Frosted Bayberry” scent for my Yuletide Sabbat. The scent gives me a nice break from cinnamon and spice oils because it exudes a cooling and soothing atmosphere which is actually really quite enjoyable at this hectic time of year! The Yule Sabbat Oil and Soy Wax Tart Melts are obviously scented with bayberry; a scent which many people enjoy. Although I have added just a slight “frost” scent twist of which I am not going to reveal the essential oil that makes that “frost” twist! Both the Yule Oil and Yule Soy Tarts are heavily scented as is my signature; I just don’t go on the light side with a great scent. I’d rather completely submerge myself into the scent to get the wonderful manifestation and physical sensation of the moment! After all, what are we here for?

I created the “Frosted Bayberry” scent for another reason as well and every Witch who knows the uses of their herbs realizes that bayberry essential oil or bark is a fabulous money draw scent! So not only am I reveling in the glorious scent sensation of the oil, but I am also consciously drawing much needed money into my home for the holiday season! the special “Frost” ingredient just happens to be a super money drawing essential oil as well! Later on, I may even add another money draw curio to the mix. This curio would be a beautiful addition to both my oil and my tarts, but I’ll have to see if I make it that far this year or not! So for the meantime I’ll just leave that little curio a secret as well!

COUNTDOWN TO SAMHAIN DAY #4: THE FINAL HARVEST

I live in Rockingham County surrounding Harrisonburg City in Virginia back in one of the most remote and rural areas. You won’t see any subdivisions around here and I love it like this!  There are vacant fields, crop fields, large farms, large wooded areas, mountains and rivers surrounding my home and it fits me just right and makes me smile! I can just take a walk outside to get in tune with nature and the seasons! I’m also thankful to live in an area in which the change of the seasons is heavily marked with changes in temperature, plants and animals. I can take a scenic drive any day in any direction; I can go up to the top of Reddish Knob or just tour the backroads of the country. The West Virginia line is just a few miles from my home and I can have a drive through the heavily wooded areas and see deer, bear, red foxes and many more types of animal life.

I can truly see the final harvest of the growing season where I live because I can watch the farmers cut the crops and clear their land for the winter. We have a heavy population of hunters where I live and they strive to bring in squirrel, deer, bear and fish to store for the winter. This area is very busy at this time of year! People here also reap the final bounty of their gardens and either freeze or can the fruits and vegetables. If you’re like me, you try to reap the final bits of herbs and plants and dry them to use during the winter season. I grow Sage, Lemon Balm, a variety of mints, Comfrey, Basil and plants such as Red Clover, Plantain and Mullien grow wild out here. It is time for me to make my Four Thieves Vinegar which I use to ward off winter sicknesses such as the cold and flu. For my Four Thieves Vinegar, I use a half gallon of apple cider vinegar, about 1/2 cup minced fresh garlic cloves, 1 cup dried rosemary, 1/2 to 1 cup dried thyme, 1 cup dried sage, the peels of about 2-3 lemons and I may try some cayenne pepper this year. I put all of the dried herbs, the garlic and the lemon peels into the half gallon canning jar and pour the apple cider vinegar over them. When I have everything put into the canning jar I have two options: I can either put the lid on the jar and let it sit in a dark place for two to four weeks, or I can dump it all into a big pot on the stove and heat it without boiling it until I feel I have gotten the precious oils and liquids out of all of my ingredients, strain it and put it into the canning jar and store the liquid in a dark place to take as a tincture during the winter to ward off illnesses. I have recently learned that I can add honey to the mixture as well! I believe adding honey would be a good thing because not only is honey another natural preservative, but it would tame the flavor of the vinegar mixture which I already take as a tincture and marinate chicken in! I think I will try mixing honey into my Four Thieves Vinegar this fall as well!

I will leave you with a few pictures of our scenic land:

 

DAY #9 OF THE COUNTDOWN TO SAMHAIN: DIVINATION

For the past few months, I have been studying the tarot; more specifically, I have been studying the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck. I now use the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck exclusively when reading cards. I like that it has a long history attached to it and I trust the symbolic imagery in the deck. Arthur Waite and Pamela Colman created the deck together through the Rider Company with Coleman bringing Waite’s visions of the cards come alive with her artistic talents.I am studying the cards with the help of the book, “The Easiest Way To Learn The Tarot-Ever”, by Dusty White (links at the bottom of this post).

There are so many … Really SO MANY … Tarot decks to choose from these days; perhaps there are truly TOO MANY tarot decks these days. I know there are many decks with wild, exaggerated  scenes on the cards and “modern” Manga “cool” looking imagery which attract the younger generation especially; however, I feel that the true meaning of the tarot is lost within these new modernized, attention-grabbing tarot decks. Call me an old fuddy duddy if you will, but I feel that what is given up in the name of “modernized”, mostly Manga or overly elaborate scenes on these new tarot card decks is the intricately woven symbology within the Rider-Waite Tarot Deck. I feel like tarot decks today are created by more of an artist type person than a person with a heavy esoteric background.

Arthur Edward Waite studied many branches of esotericism such as:  divination, Rosicrucianism, Freemasonry, ceremonial magic, Kabbalism and alchemy. In addition, he was an outer member of the Golden Dawn and after that became a Freemason. He also translated and reissued several mystical and alchemical works such as: The Book of Ceremonial Magic and The Holy Kabbalah. So, in my opinion this gives his tarot deck much more credibility than say a fairy tarot deck picked off of the shelf because of the artwork as opposed to the esoteric meaning of the scenes and symbolic imagery.

My final argument for sticking with one tarot deck is that I am actually able to remember what the scenes and esoteric symbology means and I can read connections between the cards as well. Also, the feedback I’m getting from people who have me read their cards is that I am on point almost 100% of the time. So in my opinion, keeping with one credible tarot deck and learning the meaning of the scenes on the cards and the esoteric symbology makes good common sense. What do you think?

COUNTING DOWN THE 10 DAYS UNTIL HALLOWEEN AND EXPLORING THE SPIDER TOTEM!

Bats, Black Cats, Owls and SPIDERS!!! I happen to be in love with SPIDERS! They are actually rather docile and they are helpful around the garden as they swallow up some of the pesky bugs! As I spot spiders around the house and yard, I choose to re-home them as opposed to killing them if they are in the way of traffic of people and pets especially if I know they are poisonous! Did you know that the most poisonous spider in the United States is the Grandaddy Longlegs? Fortunately, his mouth is too small to bite humans and animals!

Other things about spiders that you might not know is that they are actually a very good totem animal, or aracnid rather, to have! If the spider shows up in your life, it brings with it brilliant creativity as it weaves its intricate web! Some American Indian Tribes share the story of Grandmother Spider weaving the universe together. Grandmother Spider wove every spirit and entity together to make a whole, connected web of energy. All of us and all living and spiritual beings are a part of this web and receive energy from it. So, knowing that you may tap into your creative energy at anytime; just call on Grandmother Spider to help you!

Spiders have other good traits as well such as being patient and receptive and being a weaver of life’s fate. Call on the spider totem to help bring you more patience with difficult situations that have to work themselves out. You see, the spider not only weaves the web, but can unravel it as well and begin a new web. Let the spider help you be receptive and to know when the web of your life needs some unraveling, repair and renewing. Looking at the spider totem, know that when we die, our spirit energy is still hanging on to a thread in the web so to speak and know that this thread is the beginning of a new web of life for us.

At Samhain, when we are entering the dark part of the year, the energy is right to contact beings in the web of life who are not on our Mother Earth at the moment. Use the Earth’s treasures of crystals, herbs, resins and oils and the spider totem to help you to connect with friends and ancenstors … You may even find a new friend on your journey!

THE NEXT SUPERMOON … BE READY FOR IT!

Find out about the next Super Moon on October 30,2016!

The next Supermoon of 2016 lands on this coming October 30! This moon isn’t just a Supermoon; it’s what Wiccans term a Black Moon as well. A Supermoon occurs when there is a new or full moon closely coinciding with “perigee” which is the moon coming to its closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit. Supermoons can cause physical effects on the Earth such as larger tides. A Black Moon is the name for the second New Moon in one calendar month. The first New Moon of this October, 2016 was on the first and the next New Moon of October, 2016 will be on the thirtieth.

So, what does this mean in terms of Witch Craft?

Any magick worked on October 30, 2016 will be especially powerful! Any Dark Moon, Curses or Banishing Spells worked on this night will have enormous power! You can work anything from ridding yourself of negativity or bad habits or banishing negative people from your life. If you have a Curse you are wanting to work, it will be especially powerful as well! Choose your Magick wisely on October 30 when the Black Supermoon is in full power because the next Black Moon won’t come until August 21, 2017, and it won’t be a Supermoon!

I have a super Banishing Kit in my Etsy Shop, Miss Tammy’s Conjurings! Banishing is one of my specialty areas and the kit comes with a Loaded 10 Inch Glass Encased Banishing Candle, 1 Ounce of Banishing Oil, 1 Ounce of War Oil, 1 Packet of Banishing Powder, 1 Packet of Grave Yard Dirt and The Perfect Banishing Spell which has worked for me and my clients many, many times.
