This is a very concentrated banishing powder, and it’s known as Exodus powder because it stimulates your spell’s target to recreate the exodus–a sudden departure.
Grind all ingredients together to form a powder. Sprinkle this on and around your target’s front doorstep to make them move. Actually sprinkling the powder onto your target’s shoes should also achieve the same effect.

Both formulas are similar in intensity and may be used in the same manner.
- Sprinkle the Banishing Powder on clothes, especially shoes, belonging to anyone you’d like to see gone.
- Sprinkle the powder on the ground, so that the target of your spell is forced to step on or over it.
- Banishing Powder will enhance the power of any other vanishing spell. Sprinkle as an accompaniment, particularly around and over candles.
The art of the enchanted powder reaches its finest point with banishing spells. Various banishing powders exist of varying intensity. Some are created from common kitchen ingredients, while others are mixed from more exotic components. Experiment and see which formula works most powerfully for you.
Remember that powders are intended as a subtle form of magick. There’s no need to leave a large suspicious pile; a discreet sprinkling is typically sufficient.
Any of the following Banishing Powders may be used to create a Banishing Oil.
Rippling And Tipping
At this time of awakening, even small acts can become great forces in the world, like pebbles making ripples in a pond.
A snowball at the top of a mountain has the potential to become huge, just by rolling down the mountain and gathering more snow. In a short time, this tiny snowball can become a force to be reckoned with. We humans are like this when it comes to exchanging energy and vision, and no matter how few people are involved at the beginning, there is the potential for massive change. As consciousness seekers, we are in the midst of this process, and it is amazing to see people we thought might never come around, waking up to their truth. Each time we see this, we can count ourselves blessed to be living at a time when the awareness of humanity seems to be at a tipping point, as more and more individuals open their minds and change their ways.
For some people, this revolves around an awareness of the environment, for others it is a spiritual awakening, and for many it is both. A great change in consciousness is sweeping through us all, as we recognize that things are not what they have seemed to be, that there is more to our lives than meets the eye. Many of us have the awareness and the energy at this time to break through old, outmoded ways of seeing things and to move into a new way of being in the world, and it is essential that we do so. The beauty of living at this time is that even small actions have a powerful ripple effect, and the reverberations of what we do have the power to reach and open many minds.
It is as if a scale is about to tip in favor of higher consciousness, and each one of us has the power to bring humanity closer to that point with the smallest of actions. Each time we move in the direction of our dreams and visions, we can visualize another small pebble dropping into the pond, or another gold weight on the scale, rippling and tipping our way to universal awakening.
Daily Goddess Devotion: THE GODDESS
I seek Her and find Her, filled with abounding love,
Standing here upon earth, or looking high above.
She does not rule ore me, or linger till I fall,
I need not fear the judgment, within deaths silent call.
I never dread Her anger, for She understands my heart,
I walk my path knowing, She shall never part.
In truth and light

Power Animal of the Day: Polar Bear
The Polar Bear
Strength Perseverance Insulation
The polar bear is enormously strong and full of courage. He will help you stand up to the challenges of life, so you are never overwhelmed, no matter how large the challenges are. For you are the polar bear, and you do not back down.
The polar bear will also teach you to thrive in environments that may be hostile to others. He will give you powerful insulation, so that you are always safe and sound, no matter what is around you. While others are losing strength and power, you will just breathe in deeply and pull warm polar bear energy around you and within you.
With polar bear energy within you, you will have the strength and perseverance to handle any challenges that life brings to you, no matter how great. Just breathe in polar bear energy and you will be filled with self-belief; you will know that you are everything you need to be.
The polar bear is also a master at camouflage. When you need to disappear into yourself and find peace for a moment, just close your eyes and cover your nose and you will disappear for a time. Then, rested and rejuvenated, spring to life, full of enough energy to cross the arctic ices. After all, you are the polar bear and power is yours.
Isa of Heimdall’s Aett popped out today pronounced “ee-saw” (I: Ice) A challenge or frustration. Psychological blocks to thought or activity, including grievances. Standstill, or a time to turn inward and wait for what is to come, or to seek clarity. This rune reinforces runes around it.
Frost has blanketed the earth. It seems that everything in nature is dead. But winter is not forever. You have to sacrifice a part of your personality for the sake of future rebirth. If you are carrying or nurturing a child now, you may feel isolated from the buzz of working life, and longing for more social contact. But the lesson of this rune is to see the need to free yourself from past habits and projects, and to prepare for something much more important. Perhaps this is a gestation period and you are putting new schemes and ideas together. You may feel that these are unrealistic and that everyone and everything is against you, but this is just like a winter in your personal life, a period of rest and secret inner preparation. Wait for spring. It will come without fail.
Isa Merkstave (Isa cannot be reversed, but may lie in opposition): Ego-mania, dullness, blindness, dissipation. Treachery, illusion, deceit, betrayal, guile, stealth, ambush, plots. (Note: the reversed or merkstave definitions are included only for reference as they apply to a multi-rune cast and not to a single rune that’s drawn blind from the pouch)
As with all, take only what feels right to you and disregard the rest.
