Hecate presides over three-way crossroads. Hecate truly controls all roads: not only does she control avenues of opportunity, she also guards the frontier between the realms of the living and the dead, and the various planes perceptible only with psychic vision.
Hecate’s color is black. She only accepts petitions after dark, the only illumination permitted being torchlight. The last day of every month belongs to her, as do the days of the Dark Moon. These are the best times to request her favor.
Larch, a unique evergreen in that it sheds its needles, is the tree of New Beginnings. Burn larch woodchips, resin and/or needles to liberate blocked energy.
The sour sop, also known as custard apple (Annona genus), is a small tree native to the Congo region of Africa. It also appears in Brazil, where it is known as malolo. It’s used in powerful unblocking baths when a person is absolutely desperate, miserable, oppressed by fate, and at the end of their tether. Make an infusion by pouring boiling water over sour sop leaves. Let it cool, strain and add this to your bath.
In some versions of the Sleeping Beauty story, the handsome prince would very much like to save Sleeping Beauty from her hundred years sleep but is initially unable because the road leading to her castle is obstructed with thorns. The prince can’t pass until he take his sword and cuts his own path. In other versions of the tale, his sword won’t cut; he’s unable to pass through the thicket until powerful fairies recognize his predicament and cut a road for him.
That’s exactly what unblocking or road opening spells do.
When your life seems stagnant, when opportunities always seem to peter out, when no viable alternatives seem to exist, when no roads open for you, you may have what is magically known as a blocked condition. Blocked conditions stem from a variety of causes.
- Blockages may result from insufficient magick power your magickal gas tank is empty, therefore you can’t proceed.
- Blockages may be the result of a hex or curse. However the emphasis with Unblocking Spells is emphatically a repairing the situation at hand: opening the roads. There’s little emphasis on who may have placed a hex or on returning it.
- Blockages may result because you’re desperately in need of magickal cleansing: too much accumulated negative debris is weighing you down, preventing mobility
- Blockages may result from spiritual causes
Unblocking spells remove blocks, obstacles, and hurdles, opening the roads so that you can proceed happily with life. Blockages are the opposite of a crossroads. Crossroads offer possibilities of change, motion, and power. Blockages weigh you down, removing avenues of opportunity and limiting you to travel a path not of your choosing.
There are two aspects to unblocking spells:
- Specific spirits, magickal owners of gates and crossroads, control access on all roads. They determine who passes and who is blocked. These road opener spirits may be petitioned to remove your particular blockage
- Other spells take advantage of the power of herbs and magickal items to remove a block
Hey y’all! Just wanted to drop off a quick apology for not doing my daily posting as usual. I woke up this morning at 5:30 a.m., and thought “Yes, I will get my daily postings done plus more!” Yeah right, it is now 3:45 p.m., and I am just now getting up again. One of the medicines the doctor put me on for the shingles is supposed to make you sleepy. I guess because shingles is associated with nerves and they figure if you sleep, you can’t get upset or mad. I hate to tell them but my neurologist keeps me on mellow medicine. He told me a long time ago, my main problem was my temper. You know when you get mad, your whole body tenses and you get to the point were you want to blow your top. Well that also affects all your nerves in your body. Since I am Irish, I have one hell of a temper. My poor neurologist, he is a sweetheart, I have went to him for over ten years now. We have a very good relationship. But he was very patient and finally got a combination of drugs that actually does the trick. Now pile on the shingle medicine, I turn into sleeping beauty (not so sure about the beauty part, lol!). But all of it together, I pass out on the keyboard.
I figure since it is this late in the afternoon, you wouldn’t want to read your horoscopes or your daily Tarot card. Heck, the day is almost over. I guess you might be interested in reading them to see what kind of day you were suppose to have, lol! Take it from me, I read mine and……well, let’s just leave it at “and”! What I am going to do is put on some spells and other info that I hope you will find interesting. I noticed the other day, I had added a category and haven’t never put anything in it. So today is the perfect day to put info in categories like that.
I hope you have a great weekend. Hopefully tomorrow I will be more like myself. Till then…….
Blessings to you and yours,
