 Potato – Leek Soup

From Llewellyn’s Witches’ Datebook 2000 Page 45 Recipe by Breid Foxsong

3 Leeks

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

4 ½ Pounds Unpeeled Potatoes

6 Cups Chicken (Vegetable) Broth

½ Pound Smoked Ham (optional)

Salt and Pepper to taste

Wash the potatoes thoroughly, cube them, and set aside. Clean and dice the leeks. Heat olive oil in large pot. Sauté leeks for about two minutes 9if they start to brown, they’re done). Dump potatoes on top of lees and cover with the chicken (or vegetable) broth. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Then take a potato masher and mash about half of the potatoes in the pot. These will thicken the soup and give it flavor. Dice the smoked ham and add it (optional). Simmer for about five minutes until the ham warms through. Add salt and pepper to taste (it won’t take much salt) and serve with French bread or oyster crackers on the side. Garnish with green onion, a sprig of parsley, or a dollap of sour cream. This soup freezes well and is almost better the second time it’s heated!

Rider-Waite Tarot Card Deck Information

(Note from Lady Beltane: I choose to use the Rider Waite Tarot deck because it is the most widely known deck and its history goes back a century or maybe a little more.)

The following article and the individual card information come from the Tarot Cards List from the original Rider Waite Tarot Deck on


There are 78 cards in the Tarot deck. This Tarot cards list represents countless reading combinations and situations in one’s life. But still, is Tarot a mirror of the world around us or a reflection of our inner self? Tarot cards are not only for answering questions but also for asking questions.

Life obeys certain rules. Many of them are clear to us, but some cannot be explained logically and rationally. We try to understand what happens and try to make the right choice. Sometimes it seems to us that the world is mad and ruled by chaos. But our feelings tell us that everything does happen for a reason. Signs and symbols around us give clues to the understanding of phenomena. You just need to take a closer look at these signs and to look inside the subconscious – then, bizarre imagery will take the form of a well-defined structure.

That’s not so easy. It takes some patience and curiosity. The more we learn, the more we enhance brain functions. You also need to develop your intuition and have the right means at hand to develop these skills. One of these means is Tarot cards.

It can be difficult for novices to memorize the meanings of all tarot cards. Therefore, this list
of Tarot cards for beginners will allow you to quickly find the divinatory meaning and
description of the desired card.
The Tarot cards list can be divided into 22 cards of the major arcana, 40 of the minor arcana,
and 16 cards of the court.
• The major arcana are cards of destiny, symbolic patterns of old mystery.
• The minor arcana are numbered ace through 10. They represent the four suits:
wands, cups, swords, and pentacles.
• 16 court cards are royal figures divided into 4 court cards – Page, Knight, Queen,
and King – for each of the 4 suits.
Shown here is the Tarot cards list from the original vintage Rider-Waite Tarot deck. This deck
version was published from 1931 to 1940. The scans faithfully preserve the colors of the Tarot
cards themselves.
The Tarot card meanings given here are based on the works of Arthur Waite, Eden Gray, and Peter Ouspensky.

Information about the Major Arcana Number 0 Rider-Waite Tarot Cards


Tarot card meaning:

The subject of the reading is a dreamer, a mystic. He has the desire to accomplish a great goal. He must be
careful to make the right choice. If he thinks that “when ignorance is bliss, ’tis folly to be wise,” then he is
indeed the Fool.

Arthur E. Waite – The Pictorial Key to the Tarot:

With light step, as if earth and its trammels had little power to restrain him, a young man in gorgeous vestments
pauses at the brink of a precipice among the great heights of the world; he surveys the blue distance before himits expanse of sky rather than the prospect below.
His act of eager walking is still indicated, though he is stationary at the given moment; his dog is still bounding.
The edge which opens on the depth has no terror; it is as if angels were waiting to uphold him, if it came about
that he leaped from the height. His countenance is full of intelligence and expectant dream.
He has a rose in one hand and in the other a costly wand, from which depends over his right shoulder a wallet
curiously embroidered. He is a prince of the other world on his travels through this one-all amidst the morning
glory, in the keen air. The sun, which shines behind him, knows whence he came, whither he is going, and how
he will return by another path after many days.
He is the spirit in search of experience. Many symbols of the Instituted Mysteries are summarized in this card,
which reverses, under high warrants, all the confusions that have preceded it.
In his Manual of Cartomancy, Grand Orient has a curious suggestion of the office of Mystic Fool, as apart of his
process in higher divination; but it might call for more than ordinary gifts to put it into operation.
We shall see how the card fares according to the common arts of fortune-telling, and it will be an example, to
those who can discern, of the fact, otherwise so evident, that the Trumps Major had no place originally in the
arts of psychic gambling, when cards are used as the counters and pretexts. Of the circumstances under which
this art arose we know, however, very little.
The conventional explanations say that the Fool signifies the flesh, the sensitive life, and by a peculiar satire its
subsidiary name was at one time the alchemist, as depicting folly at the most insensate stage.

The Fool card divinatory meanings:

Folly, mania, extravagance, intoxication, delirium, frenzy, bewrayment.

P. D. Ouspensky – The Symbolism Of The Таrot :

And I saw another man.
Tired and lame he dragged himself along the dusty road, across the deserted plain under the scorching rays of
the sun. He glanced sidelong with foolish, staring eyes, a half smile, half leer on his face; he knew not where he
went, but was absorbed in his chimerical dreams which ran constantly in the same circle. His fool’s cap was put
on wrong side front, his garments were torn in the back; a wild lynx with glowing eyes sprang upon him from
behind a rock and buried her teeth in his flesh. He stumbled, nearly fell, but continued to drag himself along, all
the time holding on his shoulder a bag containing useless things, which he, in his stupidity, carried wherever he
Before him a crevice crossed the road and a deep precipice awaited the foolish wanderer. Then a huge crocodile
with open mouth crawled out of the precipice. And I heard the voice say:
“Look! This is the same man.”
I felt my head whirl.
“What has he in the bag?” I inquired, not knowing why I asked. And after a long silence the voice replied: “The
four magic symbols, the sceptre, the cup, the sword and the pentacle. The fool always carries them, although he
has long since forgotten what they mean. Nevertheless they belong to him, even though he does not know their
use. The symbols have not lost their power, they retain it in themselves.

Flower Moon Ritual

From Llewellyn’s Witches’ Datebook 2000 Page 73 By Yasmine Galenorm

This month we honor the union of the God and Goddess and the life that springs forth. For this ritual, decorate your altar with a purple cloth, a chalice of wine, your athame, and two green candles. Arrange armfuls of flowers around the altar (live or fake will both work fine). Cast a circle and invoke the God and Goddess.

Sense the energy of the Goddess and Her mate and draw that power into yourself. Feel their connection as the embrace. As the energy builds, hold the athame over the chalice, focusing on its symbolic connection to the phallus of the God. Plunge the tip slowly into the chalice, which represents the vagina of the Goddess, and say:

As this athame enters the wine

So the God enters the Goddess

Their mating brings life to the Earth.

When finished, sip the wine and feel their power and passion within you. Offer the rest as a libation to the Earth.

Affirmation for the Flower Moon:

I am filled with strength and passion.

Scrying Mirrors: What Are They, and How To Make and Use Them


Have you ever wanted to see the future or speak with someone who has passed away? Using a scrying mirror is one potential way to do it.

What is a scrying mirror and how does it work? A scrying mirror or black mirror is a surface used for divination. You focus on a particular intention and stare into the mirror, and you might get visions related to your query.

In this article, you’ll learn what a scrying mirror is, how they work, and how to make and use one for yourself.

What Is A Scrying Mirror?

Scrying or seeing is a type of divination. In fact, scrying comes from a Middle English word that means “to divine.”

One of the earliest types of scrying that was done is water scrying, where a person looked into the surface of the water to get some kind of image or meaning. Over time this has evolved into using crystal balls and mirrors for a similar purpose.

A scrying mirror (also called a black mirror) is a shiny black surface used for divining. Lucky for you, it’s one of the easier divination tools that you can make by yourself. It costs very little money to make or buy. And it’s not any more difficult to learn than any other methods of divination.

In the past, scrying mirrors were made by polishing metals like brass or copper, or putting aluminum foil or mercury behind a piece of glass. Nowadays, polished obsidian is one of the more popular materials used for commercially available scrying mirrors.

Some people say that older mirrors will work better than newer ones, which can benefit you if you’re making your own scrying mirror. The size of the mirror doesn’t matter, and any size or shape can work.

How to Make a Scrying Mirror

If you’re looking to make your own scrying mirror, usually the best place to find your materials is in a thrift store. You might think that you’re looking for a used mirror, but actually a picture frame will work best for making your scrying mirror. Most scryers prefer to use a round mirror, but a square one will work just as well. So pick whatever frame speaks to you. But you need a frame that comes with a piece of glass, as this will be the reflective surface you use for scrying.

When you get home, you’ll want to clean the glass up a bit. Use window cleaner and a clean cloth to remove any streaks, smudges, and fingerprints.

When the glass is clean, lay it on a piece of newspaper. You’ll want to paint it with a black acrylic paint. A glossy or metallic paint will work best, but you can also use a matte black paint. The paint isn’t the shiny surface that will be reflected, the painted side of the glass will go at the back of the frame.You will probably need to do several thin coats of paint, allowing them to try in between, to make sure your glass is evenly covered without any streaks. Five or six coats is usually enough that you won’t be able to see through the paint when you hold it up to a light.

Once the final layer of paint is dry, you can pop it back in the frame. You want the painted side to be on the back, with the unpainted glass facing out.

Give the glass surface one final cleaning to remove any remaining streaks or smudges and you’re all set! You can add any magical sigils or symbols around the frame if you wish, but it’s not necessary.

If you don’t feel like putting in the time or effort to make a scrying mirror, you can just buy one. Here’s an Amazon link to one that I would recommend: Vranky 4.7″ Black Obsidian Scrying Mirror

How To Use Your Scrying Mirror

Getting comfortable with using your scrying mirror will probably take some time and practice. If you’re either naturally gifted, or you’ve done other types of divination or a lot of meditation, the skill may come more quickly to you.

But before you start using your mirror, you’ll want to cleanse it and charge it up. Especially if you’re buying a scrying mirror from someone else or it’s a brand new mirror that’s never been used before, you’ll want to get rid of any old and potentially negative energies that have become attached to the object. Then you’ll want to bless it to add positive energies to it.

Depending on your particular tradition, there are a variety of different banishing rituals that you can use for this. I’d recommend using whatever feels most comfortable to you. And if you don’t have a ritual of your own, you can simply look some up and see what one speaks to you. One of the simplest ways to cleanse and charge your mirror is to simply leave it in the light of a full moon overnight.

All that you need to scry is your mirror. But you can make the process as elaborate or simple as you like. If you have an alter and want to make a whole ritual out of it, feel free. You can cast a magic circle, or whatever makes you feel most comfortable.

Using a scrying mirror is best done in low lighting conditions. You can either use candles on either side of the mirror in a dark room, or use a dim light.

You will need to place the mirror at an angle so that you aren’t able to see your own reflection.

Then it’s simply a matter of gazing into the mirror and getting in to a state of meditation and letting your mind be empty. You can also ask a particular question that you’re looking for answers to. It can help to almost look past or through the mirror, rather than at its surface. Don’t think of anything specific, just let your mind wander and do whatever. At first it may just look black or grey, and eventually you’ll start to see colors appear and disappear. The images that appear may be very hazy at first. But with enough practice they can become as clear as a movie or photograph.

At first you only want to scry for about 10 or 15 minutes at a time, but you can work up to several hours or however long you wish. You might get actual visions either in the mirror or in your mind, or you might just get an intuitive feeling while looking into the mirror.

It’s a good idea to keep a pen and notepad next to your scrying mirror so you can write down what you saw as soon as you’re done. Just like a dream, the visions and thoughts might start to quickly fade if you don’t record them right away.

A Scientific Explanation for Scrying

You’re probably familiar with some spooky games that kids sometimes play with mirrors during sleepovers, like Bloody Mary. The basic idea of the game is to stare into a dimly lit mirror for a few minutes, sometimes repeating specific words or a phrase over and over until something happens.

Part of this is just autosuggestion. When you put yourself in a spooky situation and expect to see something, you’re priming yourself for something weird to happen. So to some degree, it’s people just psyching themselves out.

But there’s actually a documented phenomenon that helps explain this called Troxler fading or the Troxler effect. The basic gist is that if you stare at a face for long enough, an optical illusion happens where the image starts to change for you. There’s nothing paranormal going on here, but it’s something weird happening between your eyes and brain. But to you, if you stare at your face long enough it will start to change and look really spooky.

 Scrying Mirror Safety Rules

  • Don’t scry for more than 20 minutes when you first start. There are legends that people can become addicted to the visions they see or go insane. But on a practical level, it can just be really draining on your energy at first when you’re not used to it.
  • Don’t use your scrying mirror for any other purpose. Your scrying mirror should be used for just scrying. It’s a dedicated tool and shouldn’t be hung up and used everyday like a regular mirror. It’s best if you wrap it in a soft cloth and put it away when not in use.
  • Don’t let other people look at it. Another reason to keep your scrying mirror put away is so other people can’t gaze into its surface. The exception is if someone else wants to use it for a ritual purpose.
  • Scrying works best during a new moon or full moon, but you can use it at any time. But night time is preferred over scrying in a dark room during the day, just because of the energy and ambiance associated with it.
  • Don’t allow anything to reflect in the mirror. That includes objects in your room, or your own reflection. Your scrying mirror should just be like a dark window or tunnel to nowhere.
  • It’s recommended to cast a circle of protection or visualize your area being surrounded by a protecting white light before you start scrying. It may help protect you from evil spirits, demons, or other spiritual tricksters who may try to deceive you.
  • Record your experiences in a journal so you can keep track of them and come back to them.
  • Make sure that you set an intention for your session. If you just stare into your mirror with no intention or not hoping to see anything in particular, then anything might come to you. Including stuff you might not want to see, including predictions of the future like your own death or other grisly details.
  • Don’t forget to relax. Allow yourself to have a few minutes to settle in and take some deep breaths before you get started.

Q: Are scrying mirrors safe?
A: Using scrying mirrors are generally considered safe. Nothing is going to come out of the mirror and grab you or anything like that. Although the same warnings that apply to a Ouija board or any other kind of divination apply. Some people believe scrying mirrors can act like portals to other dimensions, but you’ll have to come to your own conclusions and decide if you think it’s safe for yourself.


Scrying is one of the oldest types of divination in existence. Originally people used water for scrying, but nowadays the use of a crystal ball or scrying mirror is more common and popular.

Making your own scrying mirror is pretty inexpensive and easy, just requiring a picture frame with a piece of glass and some black paint. You can also buy scrying mirrors if you don’t want to make one yourself.

Some people believe that scrying allows you to see into the future or communicate with spirits. While more skeptical people can explain most of the phenomenon as an optical illusion called Troxler fading that people experience when staring at a face or surface for a long time.

How to Make Black Salt

From White Witch Grimoire   By Willow


Black salt is a must-have ingredient in any witch’s apothecary. Used for protection, banishing, and breaking hexes, it’s easy to make and can be a useful ingredient in powders, potions, and candles.

Just use the ingredients listed to below to make yours. If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, you can use a food processor or even a grinder, but make sure to wash afterward.


  1. Activated charcoal – I use charcoal disks and keep them in a jar. There is always a pile of it at the bottom to use but you can just take some from your own grill or fire pit.
  2. Sea salt
  3. Corresponding incense ashes
  4. Ashes from a successful spell

There are many ways to make this salt, but this is the simple recipe that I use. Make sure not to use too much sea salt, because it will turn out lighter than you may want.

Black salt is used in protection and has so much power, but guess what? There is way more than just one way to make it.

Today, I’m giving you seven. Yessss….seven!

Sympathetically, salt protects. Remember the graveyard scene in Hocus Pocus?

Traditionally, it drives away the evelllll…including those fucking neighbors who keep walking across your land with their damn dogs…..oh, well that doesn’t happen anymore here. It’s black salt and some dancing around my fire pit for the win. They all scared of the witch who lives on Clayton

Don’t think when I get mysterious deliveries that shit doesn’t sit in a salt circle for a while…because it does.

We go through so much salt around here, Derwood and I keep Costco hopping, but let’s get into it. Black salt can be made a lot of ways, and depending on how I will use it, I use many different methods. Today you get seven, because God don’t like ugly and I have stuff. I do thangs. If I add sulfur and a few other things, I’m taking power from someone or something. Black Salt at it’s base is just salt, ashes and charcoal. Let’s mix it up.

Black Salt Recipe #1:Traditional
Take cauldron scrapings, charcoal, incense ashes, mix with some sea salt, grind it.

Black Salt Recipe #2:Attractive
Take some ashes (dealer’s choice) add iron filings or lodestone food, salt, grind.

Black Salt Recipe #3:Banishing & Protective
Take the ashes of your work, mix with some red brick dust, and burned herbs to banish, salt, grind.

Black Salt Recipe #4:Spiritual
Take the ashes from the burning of your ancestor money, add burned herbs for protection, salt, grind.

Black Salt Recipe #5:Normally what you see on the internet
Take ashes from incense, activated charcoal, salt, grind.

Black Salt Recipe #6:Sympathetic
Take ashes from your work, cauldron, incense, charcoal, salt, grind. Add things that are sympathetic to this magick. Crystal chips, hair…yeah I said hair. Dried citrus, dried anything. Burnt offerings.

Black Salt Recipe #7:Protective
Ashes from cauldron, charcoal, salt, cascarilla, grind.A note about salt – I use all kinds of salt. No certain type and no wrong way to do this.A note about culinary black salt – yeah. Add it. You can use this if you have no charcoal or salt.A note about charcoal, it’s not a cook-out, it’s activated. Use the crumbs from your disks if you need to but not Kingsford.A note about petitions – yeah the ashes should be in your cauldron, use them.A note about herbs – I included ashes from my maryjane in a few of these. Depends on what’s going on, if I’ve smoked instead of vaped or eaten. Just depends You do you.

How can we use black salt?

Across doorways and windows. Add to moon water, urine or even floral waters and use a paintbrush and paint sigils about anywhere.

Create a circle for ritual or spell work.

Keep it in a bottle and carry it.

Add to spell jars.

Any place you want the protection, use it.

Happy spelling!

Blessed Be.

What is Black Salt used for Spiritually? [Different Methods]

From by Tina Caro

Black salt is so good for many different uses and, especially when it comes to magic, it can definitely be a great ingredient for some spiritual work. Let’s see what we need to know about it and what black salt is used for spiritually.

What is black salt used for spiritually?

Black salt is an ancient magic recipe of simple preparation that can eliminate negative energy from your home or business, ward off unwanted guests and prevent them from returning again, and protect you or your home from the influences of third parties such as family or unwanted neighbors.

You can use it to drive away rivals, insufferable coworkers, and all those unpleasant, negative, and even bad people who may be complicating your life.

The old preparation is as follows: dried bay leaf, cumin, black pepper, and sea salt are needed.

In a saucepan, first, burn the dried bay leaf and the cumin until they are ashy.

Once this is mixed with the sea salt, if you have sulfur, put it a little and crush and mix everything.

Spiritual uses of black salt

Purifying of witchy tools

Stones, amulets, talismans, and crystals, when cleaned with the salt of the witches, empowers them with more power in addition to purifying them.

Removes negative energy

Pour a little black salt on the threshold of the main entrance to your house. This prevents negative energy from entering.

If you have unexpected or unwanted visitors, neighbors who disturb the good atmosphere of your house, or unpleasant guests and you want them to not come back, you can sprinkle or throw a little black salt on their backs when they leave. Next, you close the door, pour the salt along the door on the inside, and don’t look back. That person will not bother you again, at least at home.

For protection

This black salt adopts the energies and qualities of the plants used in it; in my case, I make different types of black salt to use in different spells and rituals, but in this case, we are going to focus on the most common salt, which is for protection (the most basic in the arsenal of any witch).

These are some basic ways to use it, but it has hundreds more and they vary according to the herbs used to make it, although, as I have already said, it is a rather protective tool.

Having a small bottle on your nightstand or sprinkling a little under your bed before going to sleep drives away the negative energies that haunt your room or rest area and protects you from bad dreams or nightmares.

Fill a small bottle with this salt and carry it around your neck, in your bag, or in a pocket. It will protect you from envy and all kinds of negative energy and will be a fantastic lucky charm.

To counter negativity, anoint a black candle with this salt and light it in the middle of a circle of protection.

If you have a lot of psychic activity near you, if everything is going negatively lately and you are surrounded by bad energies or envious or harmful people, you do not want people to transmit bad vibrations to you or your home. You can sprinkle the salt along your front door or on the edge of your garden if you have one, so you will be protected from all the negative things around you.

Hiding a bag of black salt in a key place at your work can help you to drive away and absorb everything that is left in the environment, including anger, negativity, states of bad humor, or envy that may come from colleagues or bosses.

To make or break curses

For those people who are dedicated to high magic who already have the experience, this salt is a great tool because, in addition to the above, it is very useful in rituals to make or break curses, ward off unwanted guests or entities, banish people or entities who are in the wrong place, counter the magic of other witches, and even to send away or hang nasty spirits.

For spellwork

These are just some basic ideas of how you can implement this salt in your works or spells; you can use it in many of the rituals that you have already have built. In my rituals and on my altar, I use this salt since its powers are more powerful because they have all the properties of the protection herbs and the energies that I have put into it.

Before you start a ritual or spell, put a pinch of black salt in each corner of the room to chase away negative entities.

Replace normal salt with black salt in your spells, using different plants to increase the power of the spell. For example, if you are looking for the abundance you can use cinnamon, fern, cactus, geranium, etc.

Full moon spell bath with black salt

Recharge spiritually and feel brand new with this full moon spell bath with black salt!

This is appropriate for when we need a change in our life. In this case, make a bath on the night of the full moon, adding seven handfuls of black salt to the warm water and relaxing in that bath for 20 minutes.

Throughout the next month, you will feel that you have removed the barriers that prevented you from achieving your goals.

The full moon is the perfect time to leave the past behind, cleanse your aura spiritually from negativity and obstacles, and get ready to set brand new intentions for the next phase of your life.
