Flashback 2010 – Spell for Today -BASIC CANDLE SPELL


Depending on your goal, you will need to choose a candle color that is appropriate for your task.
Different colors represent different things, for example, if you want to use this spell to gain money,
you choose a green candle, because green represents money (as well as other things).
If you wanted love, you would use a pink candle (or red if it’s actually lust you want).
Take the candle and make 7 notches in it, all equally apart.
Using virgin olive oil, dress the candle, rubbing the oil on it from the middle to the bottom,
then the middle to the top.
Place the candle in a sturdy candle holder (preferably metal, glass may shatter) and light the candle.
Concentrate on your task while the candle burns down to the first notch.
Burn the candle each night to the next notch until it has completely burned out.
Look at any god correspondence chart on a wiccan website to see which color you
want for the different types of spells you could adapt the above basic one to.
You can also write out what you want in rhyme and burn it after saying it like an incantation.
3×3 times works well. Keep any ashes and wax and make into a ball as a Talisman or keep in
a spell box in case you wish to reverse the spell.

A Thought for Today

Dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may the Great Mother and Great Father, Lord and Lady, bless you and your family with all things positive!

Flashback 2019 _ A Laugh for Today – Ms. Witch (Wild and Crazy is in Rare Form Today)……The Witch Said What?

Flashback 2011 – SPell for Today – Better Business Floorwashes

Floorwashes are a traditional–and discreet–method of casting spells. The herbal infusions are used to radiate magickal power, drawing or repelling your desire as the case may be. Floorwashes are used to scrub front steps to provide spiritual protection and attract free-spending customers. Within a building, the term “floorwash” is somewhat deceptive, in general, this is more of a  “floor final rinse.” It is assumed that the floor is clean prior to applying the spell floorwash: the floorwash isn’t rinsed off, but should be allowed to dry and radiate its fragrance and power. The physical labor involved in applying the floorwash also enhances the casting of the spell your effort transmits your intentions and desires.

Applying Better Business Floorwashes

  • Scrub the walkway and the doorway of your business, beginning at the street and moving toward your front door, just the way customers should

  • Scrub the front steps

  • Cleanse the interior floors beginning at the front door and corners and working toward the center of each room

Floorwashes may be created with any of the following or a combination:

  • Boiled cooled salted water

  • Pure spring water (bottled water)

  • Strained, collected rainwater

  • Plain tap water

Flashback 2019 – Some of the Witchcraft/Magickal Correspondence for Mondays


Magickal Applications for Mondays

Monday is named after the moon. The Latin term for Monday is Dies Lunae (“moon’s day”); in the Old English language, this day was Monandaeg; in Greek, it was Hermera Selenes. All of these different names and languages translate to the same thing: the “day of the moon.”

Working with the different phases of the moon is an important skill that takes a bit of time for Witches to learn. So why not cut to the chase and experiment with the day of the week that is dedicated to the moon in all of its magickal energies and aspects?

Magickally, Monday encourages the lunar energies of inspiration, illusion, prophetic dreams, emotions, psychic abilities, travel, women’s mysteries, and fertility.

January 30th Divination Journal

Today’s Divination Journal takes parts from divination posts done by Lady of the Abyss spanning a few different years. The year they were first posted and any notes by Lady Beltane will be in { } next to the type of reading it is. With doing this tribute to Lady Abyss some of the regular divination topics will be missing because Lady A did not post the topic.

Tarot Card {c. 2017}

Earth Reversed

{Deck this came from is unknown to me}

Earth reversed denotes a lack of positive connection with the life spirit–a lost soul. If you are not careful you may miss much of what life has to offer you.

Your Daily Rune for Today is Isa {c. 2017}



“Iss-ah” – Literally: “Ice” – Esoteric: Stasis, Stillness

Rune of concentration of things in a static or frozen state. Rune of stillness and the Ego-Self.

mental faculties, focus, ego, self-image/self-identity

stillness, contraction, stasis

Mundane: cold, self-preservation, harsh reality

Divinations: Concentrated self, ego-consciousness, self-control, unity of being; or egomania, dullness, blindness, dissipation, immobility, self-centeredness, lack of change, psychopathy.


Development of concentration, will and focus
Halting of unwanted dynamic forces as an act of self-defense (ard against demonic influences)
Basic ego integration within a balanced multiversal system
Power of control and constraint over other wights (entities), emotional outbursts
Focus of the will into single-minded action

Your Animal Spirit for Today {c.2017}


Mockingbirds are master imitators, and can mimic the calls of many other birds. They’re also fearless protectors of their nest, and will attack any bird (no matter how large) to protect their young. Mockingbird’s lesson for you today is twofold: to listen to how you might be mimicking others—instead of listening to your own true voice; and to examine the value of what you defend. Hmmm?

Ogham {c. 2018}



The third letter of the Ogham alphabet is Fearn it means alder-tree. Alder-bark has been used by many cultures to treat various health problems and disorders, everything from insect bites to tuberculosis. Alder is a very water resistant hardwood and is often used in foundations where water is present. The key points to remember with alder are confidence, shielding, guidance, and standing up to ones enemies. Just as water stands no chance against alder, your enemies are at a loss when you have the protection of the alder.

Fortune – Drawing this Ogham is a sign to remain true to yourself and resist all temptation!

A Thought for Today Flashback 2019 – Be Proud…….The Witch Said What?

This is one of the last few posts done by WOTC’s founder Lady of the Abyss. I am missing my dear friend and sister today so many of the posts for today will have been originally posts a few years ago by Lady Abyss.
