(Note: Yohimbe extract and ginseng can be found in most health food stores and mail-order catalogs.)
Use this oil to anoint candles and poppets used in lust inducing spells, or gently warm by rubbing it between the palms of your hands and use it as a erotic massage oil for the male genital area as well as for the entire body.

Use in the same manner as the male version of the oil.

The essential oil extracted from the moon ruled jasmine flower is rare and often quite expensive to purchase. However, the good news is that modern Witches can easily and inexpensively create their own jasmine oil for spell work by following these simple directions :

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:
Saturday, February 19th, 2011
General Meaning: There is a turning point that recharges you and eventually brings success. This hexagram is associated with a turning back of long nights towards more light, the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, the seasonal change when our hours of daily light begin to increase again. This is the beginning of a turnaround; a time of letting go of the old and making way for the new; a time of new beginnings. Ironically, it all starts with rest.
Don’t move too fast. The new momentum is just beginning; the turn-around demands that your energy be recharged by adequate rest, so that your life force will not be spent prematurely. This principle of hibernation, of allowing energy to renew itself and be strengthened by rest applies to many situations — recuperation after an illness, the slow return of trust after period of estrangement, the careful development of new relationships after a splitting apart of old ones.
Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:
This Tarot Deck: Cagliostro
The challenge of what has traditionally been known as the Hermit card is to be able to recognize a teacher in a humble disguise. This font of mysterious knowledge will not make it easy for the student to acquire his wisdom, as it takes time and long contemplation to fathom what he knows. He often speaks wordlessly, or in ancient and barbaric tongues, communicating with the elements, animals and Nature herself.
While the hourglass was an identifying feature on the earliest Hermit cards, more modern ones have shifted the metaphor, showing more or less light released from his lantern. In either case, the Hermit card reminds us of the value of time away from the hubbub of civic life, to relax the ego in communion with Nature.
