The Air Witch & Smudging Ceremonies

The Air Witch & Smudging Ceremonies

 

Smudging involves burning herbs and using the herbal smoke to cleanse and bless areas or people. It is a common and sacred practice.

Native Americans make use of three primary herbs for smudging: white sage, cedar, and sweet grass. The sage removes negative influences, the cedar cleanses the area, and the sweet grass calls in positive influences. The prayers said during the ceremony are lifted to the gods upon the smoke.

To smudge, place sand or salt in the bottom of a fireproof dish. If you are using a smudging wand, you can carry this dish beneath it to catch any hot ashes. If you are using a dried, crumbled herbal mixture, light a charcoal tablet and place it in the center of the bed of sand. Sprinkle the herbs over the charcoal as you move clockwise from area to area.

As you moved around the space wafting the smoke, say aloud, “Only love and light may dwell here. All other vibrations must leave this house {person, etc.}.” You may direct the smoke into corners and crevices with a feather, a fan, your breath, or your hand. When you have smudged the whole area, sweep the negative vibrations out the door and call in the positive vibrations that you want. Try something along the lines of, “Be gone, worry, pain, misery, and strife! Welcome, healing comfort, love and light!”

 

The Air Witch & Auras

The Air Witch & Auras

 

An aura is the colored area around the body. It is the atmosphere or spiritual essence of the self. It has been asserted that we each have a primary aura color. We cannot change our primary aura color, no matter what we do. However, there is an overlay of color on the aura that we can control and manipulate for magickal used. This kind of magick should be used only on the self, never on others.

 

In order to manipulate your aura overlay, you have to be able to manipulate your emotions. In the same way that the mind “colors” emotion, the body reacts to the colors in the aura field. In other words, in order to change your aura overlay to a clear, bright red (to warn others away), you would need to direct the emotion you see as red into your projected aura. This is accomplished with concentration and visualization. If you can visualize something as simple as a bubble, you can change your aura overlay.

Here are the most commonly accepted aura color interpretations:

Red: Passion, sexual energy, anger

Orange: Stability, clear thinking

Yellow: Logic, intelligence, energy, nervousness

Green: Nature lover, healer, jealousy

Blue: Peace, at rest, depressed

Purple: Spiritual

Pink: In love

Black: Negative person

White: Connected to the Divine, wise, a teacher of spirituality.

 

In effect, manipulating the aura is akin to throwing a glamour. The difference is in the level of concentration. A glamour only has to be strong enough to fool an onlooker, while an aura manipulation has to fool you. If you are about to go into a job interview and are nervous, your aura overlay will be yellow. You might want to change it to an orange color, which indicates a clear thinking, stable person. So, you visualize the energy inside of you as a clear bright orange, then release it from the center of the self, allowing it to stream out of your pores into your aura field. Do not ground until after the interview. Have faith that your aura overlay is now orange, and it will be.

 

It is a smart move to make regular aura cleansings a part of your magickal routine. This techniques are simple. While in meditation or an a separate task, simply visualize flooding your aura with a brilliant white light. You may want to smudge the aura field. Simply burn white sage or another cleansing herb in a dish, and direct the smoke all about your body with a feather of fan. Both techniques are safe and effective.

Air Witch & Aroma Magick

Aroma can make us hungry or feel comfort and warmth, or inspire the opposite reactions. The power of scent works with the memory and the magickal proprieties of the material. Incense, oils, herbs–all of these can be gently heated, burned or used as is to inspire a bit of the sacred each time we breathe in. Aroma is a person’s earliest sense.

Air Witch & Air Magick

Air Witch & Air Magick

Air magick pertains to all things that travel through the air. This includes death, music, thoughts, spirits, dreams and invisibility. Other specialty areas include travel magick and twilight studies. The word twilight is used here to describe the state of mind when we are not quite asleep and not quite awake. It is a shift in consciousness that allows for the more surreal parts of life to come into sharper focus.

Like dirt and water, each type of wind contains its own primary properties. The magickal properties and purposes corresponding to the different types of winds are as follows:

Whirlwind:  Whirlwinds run the gamut from gentle “dust devils” to full-blown tornadoes. This is a powerful aspect of wind to use; however, it is best to only use the violent form on the astral plane. This is the best wind to use to banish or destroy. Be careful with whirlwinds, even if only on the astral plane, because they tend to confuse.

South wind: The south wind is the warm wind of fire. It can work as an all-purpose magickal booster; however, it can easily cloud a situation. The South wind brings blessings of friendship.  Singing into the south wind can facilitate contact with loved ones. It is the wind of celebration.

North wind: The north wind is the proverbial wind of change. It is the icy col wind of death and works well in spells of destruction or banishment. It is connected to the element of earth, and can be used as a healing wind. The north wind moves things forward in time.

East wind:  The east wind relates to air. It symbolizes new beginnings and fresh starts. This is a good wind to use for matters involving intellect and self-improvement. It ushers in clarity and clears the mind.

West wind:  The west wind is the wind of love and  emotion. It relates to the element of water. Cleansing and divination are favored when the west wind is blowing. The voices of the dead are heard on the west wind.

Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, December 30th

We want to demonstrate our love today because the Moon enters heartfelt Leo at 2:45 am EST, but positive intentions only take us so far. Fortunately, exploring hidden feelings reveals buried treasure as the radiant Sun aligns with transformational Pluto and realistic Saturn. If we avoid our fears, we’ll shadowbox with an unknown enemy. But shining the light of awareness into the dark can prevent us from being swept up in the current turmoil.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You’re driven to set personal goals for the year ahead, without worrying about helping anyone else. You may incorrectly believe that the possibility of your success could be jeopardized if others also have a chance of succeeding. However, this faulty assumption comes from your outdated belief in a competitive model where there are winners and losers. Thankfully, reaching your destination is easier now when everyone works together for the common good.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

Your drive for adventure could become irrepressible as the Sun conjuncts unrelenting Pluto in your 9th House of Big Ideas. Your current sense of urgency won’t likely disappear even if you try to relax. Consider how to satisfy your needs without upsetting your life instead of denying your current wanderlust. Fortunately, enrolling in a course of study expands your mind without distracting you with unrealistic dreams.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Steer clear of discussions about risky investments of time or money today while the Sun-Pluto conjunction rattles your 8th House of Shared Resources. You might believe that you will come out on top if you simply do your research. But flimsy schemes that promise fast fortunes should be avoided. Improving your position through a clever venture sounds eCancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Today’s magnetic Sun-Pluto conjunction attracts intense people into your life and they could be significant to your personal growth. Friends or associates may reflect a part of yourself that you don’t want to acknowledge. Even if you want to hold on to the status quo now, dynamic changes are afoot. Relinquishing control enables you to flow with the strong currents, wherever they are taking you next.

nticing now, but greed could end up costing more than it’s worth.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You might begin a new diet today, even if much of the world is happily indulging in holiday feasts. However, you’re not in your usual party spirit now because you’re thinking about cleaning up your act. It’s not that you want to have less fun; you just know that you need to improve your health and you’re highly motivated to do something about it. Relax; enjoying the magic of the season won’t make you forget your long-term goals.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

The intense Sun-Pluto conjunction in your 4th House of Emotional Security distracts you from your career-related goals. However, you must manage the complexity of the current situation to realize your fullest potential. Sidestepping an interpersonal issue isn’t a viable choice today because your frustration could lead to a crisis. Bringing secrets out into the open might be just the preventative measure you need.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You’re accustomed to high levels of intensity in your relationships, but occasionally avoidance is smarter than direct confrontation. Unfortunately, you can’t dance around your wounded feelings today, even if you are not comfortable talking about them. Luckily, your prospects for real healing improve once your old hurts are acknowledged and shared with someone you trust.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You may be upset today if someone just assumes that your possessions are for communal property. You could overreact and even grow hostile if what you own feels like an extension of your identity. However, your current attachment to your toys isn’t very sensible. If you can’t share what you have now, then you probably shouldn’t be playing with others. Setting clear boundaries is one thing, but there’s no reason to be unkind to those around you.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A passionate Sun-Pluto conjunction occurs in your 1st House of Self, giving you an apparently endless supply of energy. But feeling all that power is a double-edged sword today, for you may be driven by psychological forces that you don’t understand. One strategy for handling your current intensity is to channel your intentions in a constructive manner. For example, writing down your goals and then stating them aloud is the first step to fulfilling your dreams.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You want to care for someone special today, but it might not be such a good idea if you haven’t been asked to help. An emotionally awkward situation could develop if you assist others who do not want your interference. If anyone refuses your aid now, just be gracious and politely wish them well. Don’t hold on to feelings of rejection or all your good intentions will be for naught.

Great White King
Great White Queen

And perfect justice.
To work with your hands
Is to create life anew
Being both father and mother
Being the healer of wounds

As healing has no gender.
To touch with your vision
Is to see past the flaws
And faults of your children
To a cleaner place of fairness
Upon the high unbroken snow.

[Pagan Book of Hours]

Current Moon Phase for December 30th: Full Moon

Full Moon

(waning/86% illumination)

A veil of self-absorption is lifted and suddenly you gain access to an unbiased view of others. This is a rare moment when you can see yourself objectively and become aware of whether or not what you want in your heart is actually beginning to manifest in your life. Traditionally, the Full Moon phase stirs emotion, and this is because when you “see” what is happening, you may become upset if you’re experiencing the “same ole, same ole” — rather than the things you would like. If the Full Moon phase is a disappointment, on the next New Moon it’s time to take creative action in the direction of your dreams.

The Witches Spell for December 30th: A POWERFUL WISH SPELL

Witchy Comments & Graphics

      A POWERFUL WISH SPELL

This is a little complicated to describe but is well worth it.

You need a piece of recycled paper (recycled notebook paper works fine).

On the paper, write a short poem or chant to the Goddess and God that states your wish.

It is alright if you aren’t the best poet on earth! But it is very important that you say exactly         how you feel and what exactly you need. Do your best and say it from the heart.

Close the poem with thanks to the Goddess and God.

Fold it in half with the words inside it.

Draw a triple goddess sign on the outside.

Now fold it in half again with the symbol on the inside.

Now draw a pentacle on the paper.

Finally, flip it over and write your name and birthdate on the other side.

Put this aside in a safe place and your wish will come true in due time.

If you change your mind before it comes true, burn the paper and put the ashes to the earth.

Ok, I’m back…..This place is busy today & we’re suppose to be closed!

I had some people stop and of course, they seen me in here. So they knocked on the door and I had to see what they wanted. A neighbor of theirs told them that I had some kittens in. And it was time for us to start looking for them a home. The kitten was for their daughter, she looked to be about twelve. She was excited to be here so I took them back to look at the kittens. They picked out the one they wanted. I told them I would hold her for them. I also asked them if they minded coming back tomorrow(to fill out paperwork, about 3 months from now we will be checking on the kitten). I even went so far as telling the little girl I would give her a tour of all the wildlife we had. Gee! What’s Wrong With Me? I’m getting soft!

Now to get back to work before someone else shows up, lol! Sorry About That!
