ASHES TO RIDDANCE
There are times in our lives when we become burdened with worrying.
Items You Will Need:Needed: Ashes from burned wood Jar or bowl to hold the ashes
Moon Phase: Waning Moon
We spend so much time worrying that we never come to solving the problem.
Sometimes we have past hang-ups that prevent us from moving towards more positive lifestyles.
This little spell is to help us put an end to these ruts in our lives
Locations: Outdoors in a clearing
Gather wood ashes the day of the spell and place in a glass jar or open bowl.
During the day, hold the jar or bowl and visualize all your worries and/or hang-ups pouring from
your 3rd eye and heart and into the ashes. When the night falls, take the ashes to a clearing in
a field, wood, or parking lot. Hold the jar or bowl in your hands and do one last pouring out of
your worries and hang-ups. Now say:
“You are ashes, And to ashes you shall return.”
Pour the ashes out of the jar or bowl and walk away without looking back.
When you’ve returned home be sure to wash out the jar or bowl.
Burn some incense, take a bath, or light a candle, and refocus. It is done.
Medieval Rosary Beads
4 cups rose petals
4 cups distilled water
1 teaspoon sandalwood oil
1 teaspoon rose oil
Finely chop rose petals into an iron pot, adding enough distilled water to cover the petals. Heat, uncovered, for 1 hour without boiling the petals. Cover and leave overnight to set. Repeat the process for 4 more days. Then begin to roll the petals into beads, rubbing your hands with 1 drop each of sandalwood and rose oil first, repeating every 5 beads. Press out any liquid as you roll the beads. Thread with a large needle and thick (or plastic) thread. Allow to dry. Makes 60 beads. Separate every 10 beads with a space and 1 isolated bead.
*Personal note* Rosary Beads are not just for Christians anymore. Their popularity in the Pagan culture is growing and being used. Whether you plan on using a Rosary or not, this would be a beautiful collector’s item. One more thing at the end of the Rosary beads where normally a Cross would go, use a Pentacle (that’s what I did). I kept trying to win a Pagan Rosary on Ebay with no luck. So I made this set. I got some Rose essential oil and sprinkled it on the Rosary and then attached a beautiful Pentacle to it. I believe any Pagan would be proud to own it.

Crystal of the Day
Selenite Rose – Desert Rose
Some minerals form rosette shapes, and selenite is one of these. The selenite rose rock is also called “the desert rose”, and is often confused with the barite rose. The edges of selenite rose are sharper and the crystalline structure is less hard than the barite rose.
Some desert rose metaphysical properties are:
- Mental clarity
- Increase awareness of self and environment
- Allows one to see inner truth
- Promotes success in business
- Assists in accessing past lives
Selenite Gemstone meaning
Selenite is named for Selene, Greek goddess of the Moon because of its moon-like glow. Exchanged between lovers, it will bring about reconciliation.
- Brings mental clarity
- Helps one to access angelic guidance
- Quickly unblocks stagnant energy
- Instills a deep peace
It makes a wonderful protection stone. Place a selenite sphere at the corners of your home to create a peaceful, safe environment that will not be disturbed by outside influences.
In addition to the properties of white selenite, peach selenite is a transformation stone. It helps to heal old emotional wounds and transforms this negative energy to healing, forgiveness and accceptance. Use peach selenite to increase self awareness and travel a new path.

Herb of the Day
Lenten Rose is grown as a cardiotonic and narcotic drug. Although the rhizome is very toxic, the planet is enjoyed for its beauty. It blooms throughout the Lenten season; monks grew it to remind them of Christ’s purity and trials. The Lenten Rose is a ranunculae native to the Caucasus, Greece, and Turkey. It prefers shade in the mountainous woods of Europe. The large, bell-shaped white flowers have no scent, but are irresistible to touch. It is a hardy perennial propagated by division and grown in moist, rich soil.
On the day of June 15th, the Saint of the Day is…….
In commemoration of Saint Amos, prophet, a herdsman and dresser of sycamore trees whom the Lord sent to the sons of Israel that he might vindicate his justice and holiness in the face of their transgressions.
