March Birthstone – Aquamarine

For those born in the month of March, the official gemstone is the Aquamarine. It can range in color from a very pale shade, almost colorless, which is also the most valuable, to a most sought-after deep-blue aqua. Some of the ranges in color could be due to its ability to darken permanently with heat due to its amount of iron, which is considered to be an impurity. In knowing this however, it is important to know that the gems do not alter in quality at this point, but only in appearance. These can be heat treated to create a pure blue from a blue-green or teal. Its name originates, quite understandably, from the Latin words meaning water and sea.

The month of March is the time of year in which the world makes a shift renewing life and even creating new life. It is a time when all of us must shed our winter skin, cleanse our bodies of many of the heavy foods we consumed throughout the cold winter months that now slow us down. Many clean their homes, change their home decorations for brighter, fresher colors and textures. It is a time to refresh one’s life and mentality. One who possesses the Aquamarine can draw energy from it’s beautiful, fresh color, opening their hearts and minds for a new season.

During the Middle Ages, aquamarine was believed to gift its owner with a decrease in the effects of an inflicted poison, induce cheerfulness and compose the mind and heart. For older married couples, it gave them the inspiration to reawaken and rekindle their love. But even before, the Egyptians and Hebrews loved and cherished the aquamarine. Its brilliant color represents the sea and the air, identified with the apostle, St.Thomas, who made long journeys by sea to preach salvation. From this, sailors were known to wear this preventing seasickness and guide them safely on their voyages. The Amethyst has been considered the gift from mermaids aiding sailors at sea safety.

The powers of this stone have been known to grant revelations to aid in the search for lost things in one’s life. For those with complications of the liver, stomach, throat and jaws, the wearing of an aquamarine could bring relief. To its bearer, it can quicken your intelligence and intellect, cure laziness, and instill courage. The Romans believed that by wearing this gem one would absorb young love and its aura, and “When blessed and worn, it joins in love, and does great things”. It has also been carved into a crystal ball used in fortune-telling.

Aquamarine has been found in Brazil, also known as the Land of Aquamarine Stone.In 1910, the largest crystal of Aquamarine was mined there, weighing 243 pounds. It has also been found in Siberia, India, and in North Carolina of the United States. However, Madagascar is considered the historical source of the aquamarine, where medium to dark stones were found.

Some other interesting march birthstone facts about the aquamarine:

-Said to give its bearers the ability to overcome phobias and grief, and cure insomnia.

-It originates from the beryl family of minerals, and makes it the sister of the emerald.

-It is the official stone of Colorado.

Magickal Goody of the Day for April 27th – Image Love Charm

Magickal Goody of the Day

poppet
Image Love Charm

 

Carve, sew, or otherwise construct an image of yourself as your finest, physically speaking. Pour into it all of your good points, as well as your bad. Embody the image with your spirit, your life force, your total being. When you look at its face, however crude and unfinished it may seem to be, see your own face.

 

When finished put it in a safe place. Next, of the same material fashion an image of your ideal love. This shouldn’t be a specific person, of course, but a composite of everything you are looking for in a mate. Though you are only fashioning its outline or rough features implant in it physical, spiritual, emotional and other intellectual qualities, habits, and goals in life and any particulars that appeal or are important to you.

 

When both images are finished, take a pink or red thread or cord and tie them loosely together, place them in a spot where they will not be disturbed for several weeks, but not in a box or other constricting place. Someone will come to you and after that it will be up to the two of you.

 

Spells of this nature draw many people to you, and one or two of these may become good friends. A more personal relationship might develop out of one of these, which may eventually lead to love. If it does, but the relationship ends, unbind the images, carefully dismantle the one of the perfect love and begin anew.

 

The same is true if you fine no lover. But wait at least three months. A spell of this type doesn’t force the person to fall in love with you; it simply expands your circle of friends. Any person you meet will be under no magical pressure or force to love you; that you will have to do on your own.

How to Select a Charm , Talisman, or Amulet

 

Selecting the proper charm, talisman, or amulet components is a very personal decision. The most important factor in choosing the right charm, talisman, or amulet will be your personal energies.

You will need to open yourself to feel the powers or energies radiating from the items you intend to use in your ritual.

Complete the grounding, centering, and shielding processes.

Choose an item that you feel attracted to.

Place the item in the palm of your right hand.

Close your eyes and feel the item.

You might notice a variety of sensations from a change in temperature, a tingling, or an electrical current that illustrates that your energies and the item are attractants.

If you do not feel any change, select another item appropriate for your task.

Continue until you locate an item that causes you to feel a reaction.

When you have located an appropriate item that causes a reaction, think of the purpose you plan for the item and feel whether it is right for the job.

There is no way to describe how you will feel when you have selected the right items for a specific job. You will just know.

The most important factor is that you find an item that makes you feel an affinity.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ Irish Charm for Protection

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ Irish Charm for Protection

.
Winter has weakened its icy grip, yet March winds howl like the Irish Bean Sidhe, the wailing woman of the hills. Known commonly as the banshee, this Celtic death spirit is thought to haunt the fairy hills and knolls, keening her death cry into the wind. Her flowing hair and robes create a formidable image. Hearing her wail portends a death.

Make an Irish charm of protection tonight. Gather a green candle, a plate, a four-leaf clover (or its image), and four drops of rosemary oil. Melt the candle wax to make a coin-sized puddle on the plate. As it hardens, press in the clover, add the oil, and shape a charm.

As you mold, infuse it with protection energy, saying:

Love conquers fear.

Spell to Empower Object for Protection

This spell is best done during the Moon’s waxing phase or on the full Moon to get the most Universal energy to help empower it.

This spell can be used on a black stone, a necklace or other jewelry you were all the time.

First cleanse the object of all energy besides your own and the objects internal energy.

Hold object in your power hand or if you are doing it while in a circle place it in the middle of your altar. Use your wand or atheme to direct the power you raise into the object. Repeat spell three or five times. Fill in the blankets with the object you are empowering.

This _____ is now mine,

I will wear (carry) it through out time.

To protect me from things I can see.

To protect me even more from things I can not see.

_____ call to me if I forget to take thee.

So Mote It Be.

Full Moon – Simple Love Charm

Full Moon – Simple Love Charm

Put the following things in a drawstring bag: 1 Rose Quartz, 1 Pink Feather, and 1/5 Cup of Clove.

Get one pink candle to burn while your chanting the spell. Now light the candle and chant the following words

“Love shall come to me by the powers of three, by my will so shall it be!”

At this time anoint the bag with holy water and say,

“The bag is sealed and the charm is made.”

A spell to draw two people closer together.

Take two pink petals from a Rose.

Write on one the male lover, and on the other petal the female lover (or if gay write the different names on the two petals as above).

Take an apple, and slice it through, so that you can clearly see the five-pointed Pentagram of the seed capsules.

Take the two Rose petals and putting them together, place them on the bottom half of the apple.

Place the top half of the apple on to the petals so that the apple is whole again.

Now tie a red cord first one way across the apple binding the two halves together saying:

“I bind this man to this woman until the Goddess deems otherwise.”

Now tie a green cord ninety degrees from the red cord and say:

“I bind this woman to this man until the Goddess deems otherwise.”

These words can be set in rhyme (which makes the spell stronger) and helps you not to forget it.

Now place the apple in a dry cupboard, where it won’t be disturbed such as a wardrobe or something similar.

Each full Moon, bring the apple out (unobserved by anyone) and place in the full rays of the Moon for at least an hour, then put the apple back where you had put it first.

You may say something whilst it is in the Moon’s Light to aid the spell of attraction and binding of the two souls.
