Charm to Ease a Broken Heart

natural-magics:

Materials:
  • 1 teaspoon honeysuckle
  • 1 teaspoon cyclamen
  • 1 teaspoon lemon balm
  • an orange calcite stone
  • purple ribbon or yarn
  • 6 inch square yellow cloth
On a Sunday, mix the herbs and flowers together and place them in the center of the cloth. As you add the herbs, say,
Herbs of sweetness, herbs that soothe,
I ask you now this grief remove.
Bring to me new peace and joy
and all the sweetness you employ.
Add the sunstone and say,
Sunny stone that amplifies,
Mix with these herbs and magnify
The goodness of their properties,
and grant me new peace and ease.
Gather the cloth edges together to form a pouch. Secure the pouch with the ribbon and keep it with you.

vestahebe:

Baldr (also Balder, Baldur) is a god of light and purity in Norse mythology, and a son of the god Odin and the goddess Frigga. He has numerous brothers, such as Thor, Váli and Hodr.
He was loved by both gods and men and was considered to be the best of the gods. He had a good character, was friendly, wise and eloquent, although he had little power. 
Most of the stories about Balder concern his death. He had been dreaming about his death, so Frigga extracted an oath from every creature, object and force in nature, that they would never harm Balder. The malicious trickster, Loki, who was jealous of Balder, changed his appearance and asked Frigga if there was absolutely nothing that could harm the god of light. Frigga, suspecting nothing, answered that there was just one thing: a small tree in the west that was called mistletoe. Loki immediately left for the west and returned with the mistletoe. He tricked Balder’s blind twin brother Hodr into throwing a mistletoe fig (dart) at Balder. Not knowing what he did, Hodr threw the fig, guided by Loki’s aim. Pierced through the heart, Balder fell dead. (picture)

MYTHOLOGY MEME - [2/7] NORSE GODS/GODDESSES: FREYJA

"Hail to the Warrior Woman

on the equinox morning,

white-armored, choosing the slain

by her own glorious criteria,

harbor to the defenders of beauty.

O Freya who rides with Valkyries,

give me strength to defend all that I love

for I am dull and frightened with years of defeat

and I have forgotten the mystery of shield mates in love.”

The Seasons Spread
This is great spread for folks who want to get a look back at this past year or the start of a new one.
It’s broken up into five cards drawn for right now, and then each of the seasons. The cards would be review of how that season will go for you, a general overview. I wrote them as winter, spring, summer, and autumn but in practice I would actually rotate the seasons accordingly.
Example: Right now it’s August, so to read forward into the future I would set up the cards as now, summer, autumn, winter, spring. To read into the past I would reverse them as autumn, winter, spring, summer, now.
Each section gets three cards to it: romance (or social life if you’re the sort who’s not into relationships), finance (this could be career or money), and general life overview or social aspects (if not used in the romance section). 
Now available for readings at thiscrookedcrown.com or here. As always, go ahead and use this for your own readings, just please source it!

Casting a Circle 

free-spells:

Thought I’d do a little magickal instruction rather than just keep posting loads of spells. Do you cast a circle when you spellcraft?

The purpose for casting a circle is to create a magickal space that is sacred and protected for your spells and rituals. Not all traditions…

Iris' List on Types of Water and Their Uses 

saltwater-phoenix:

I use a fuck ton of water in my craft and almost every spell that I cast has got some sort of water involved in it. Here’s just a few of the kinds I use.

  1. Sea Water - I use it for literally everything, cleansing, banishing etc.
