So, new iron charm for my set, a freshly-cleansed pendant and some divination practise!
Some awesome news on the witchcraft front:
It’s been a good week. Got a new iron charm, had the intent of enchanting it, but it turns out that it already seems to give me intensely good luck whenever I wear or have it with me. So that’s pretty awesome. Example, my family all turned out to be on the list for meals on the plane I took from NZ to Aus, but we had never paid for them, and I got a wheelchair when I needed it most, even though when I had tried booking one they were all already taken.
Plus, I just made my first successful divination pendant. It’s made of lead, with a piece of string through the centre of it with knotted lengths down the string to indicate lengths. I cleansed it using an earth- and salt-based cleansing technique, then wanted to take advantage of the full moon to do a moon-cleansing but it’s totally cloudy out. That’s irritating too, as I was going to use a few spells that need a visible full moon, but I guess the God and Goddess were busy on other stuff. I did try a new healing potion though, one for stomach bugs and the like, and it worked like a charm, literally. I’m considering making a batch up and then storing it, since it can only be made on a full moon, and tomorrow is the last night before it starts waning.
My healing spell does have actual science behind it as well as a lot of magic. It’s 1 part salt and 1 part sugar in a half-pint of water, with 4 parts ginger and 1 part cinnamon. I also used a few drops of echinacea and performed a ritual healing bath with salt, eucalyptus oil, candles and a brief healing ritual.
I hope that everyone had a lovely few weeks, and that any fellow Wiccans or witches out there are safe and well and practising their following!
