To help you sleep peacefully and have pleasant dreams, create a tranquil and calming environment for your bedroom. The windows should have either curtains or walls that are light coloured or pastel tones and make sure the bed head is well away from the door. Cleanse the atmosphere of your room by holding a sprig of lavender and walking through the room with a peaceful mind and heart. At bedtime turn off everything in the room that could be distracting or disturbing, like television and loud music or radios. Put a lavender sachet under your pillow and before go to sleep say to yourself,
“Feather light on starry night, cosy warm and tired, pleasant dreams and sweetest thoughts as little angels smile.”
A Moon Magick Ritual For Calm
* Wait until the Moon is moving towards full, and is quite bright in the sky.
* Find somewhere as dark as possible so the light is undiluted and slowly ‘inhale’ the light through your nose, looking at the Moon and drawing its light towards you.
* Hold your Moon breath for a count of ‘One and two and three’. Remember to say the ‘ands’ to stop yourself rushing – this is relaxing, not a race.
* Close your eyes and exhale the darkness of your panic, frustration or unhappiness.
* Continue alternately inhaling with your eyes open and exhaling with your eyes closed until you feel that you are filled with silver light.
* Now gently exhale a little of that light in a single breath, this time with your eyes open, directing it in your vision towards someone you know who is also feeling stressed or anxious.
* Inhale more moonlight and continue to exhale, still with your eyes open, continuing to direct the healing light.
* Let the Moon shine into a silver or crystal bowl of water. Before bedtime, tip the water into your
bath so you can absorb the Moon energies through your pores.
Whenever you feel stressed, visualise the Moon, close your eyes and gently inhale; peace will come to you because you gave it out to others.

Self Assurance Spell
Gather a piece of paper, one grey crayon, one bright crayon (orange-yellow is good), matches, and a small item to represent yourself (perhaps a pebble).
On the left side of the paper write in grey the word “doubt,” and draw a cloud over the word.
On the right side, use the bright crayon to draw a sun with the word “assurance” underneath it.
Then lay the paper before you, placing the symbol of self on the left side. Slowly, while repeating the phrase,
“From doubt to certainty, light to mark my way. Misgivings be gone, I’m seizing the day,” move the stone across the page until it sets firmly on the word “assurance.”
Next, take a deep breath and tear away the left side of the paper, releasing your breath as you finish tearing. Burn that side to literally destroy your doubt.
Wrap the remaining paper around the stone or object and carry it to encourage confidence every day.
The Witches Magick for March 24th
Ashes to Riddance
There are times in our lives when we become burdened with worrying. 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.
Needed: Ashes from burned wood Jar or bowl to hold the ashes
Moon Phase: Waning Moon
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 your3rd 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.
Witches Spell for Sunday, March 2 – Spell for Stress and Depression
White candle (non-dripless variety)
Kunzite or blue agate
Black marker with wide felt tip
Lemon oil (the kind used for furniture polish is fine)
Begin by completely coloring the candle black with the marker to symbolize the
depression that presently encases you. Light the candle and say:
Flame cut through depression deep,
Melt it down and make it weep.
Grant me power to re-emerge,
From its grip, I leap and surge.
Watch the candle burn until white wax appears at the flame.
Rub a bit of lemon oil into the flame and say:
Kunzite/agate, stone of mellow hue,
Dissolve this depression, I beg of you.
Take its power and transform its strength
Into positive energy I can use at length.
Lightly rub the stone against your temples and your heart, then place it in front of the candle and sprinkle it with lemon balm. Let the candle burn completely.
Place the stone and herb in the cloth pouch and carry it with you.
When your spirits need a lift, re-anoint the stone and repeat its empowerment chant.
This rite is good for anyone, even those who assume they have had perfect childhoods. You don’t always realize the past is dragging you down until it’s too late and you would be amazed by what you can find out about yourself.
You will need:
Kamea of sol
A box of any shape or size
A solar incense
And music of a childlike nature to enhance the atmosphere
The box should have a lid. Paint the inside glossy black, or line it with an irregular reflective surface such as aluminum foil. The outside should be decorated with any drawing, pictures or whatever one may want to help evoke a childlike state of mind and help trigger childhood memories.
Start with an opening of any sort you feel comfortable with. Light candles and incense as desired.
State the intent “It is my will to greet my past and accept it for what it is”.
Recite the invocation:
I call the past to meet the present,
That the future may be bright.
I bring myself forth from the dark,
And hold me to the light.
Let not the past control my present,
Let not my future be dark as night.
I meet and greet my with open arms,
And move back into the light.
At this point, one person sits in the center of the group with their box, keeping it closed. She focuses on the box while the rest of the participants circle around, teasing, insulting, degrading her. At this point, the teasing should not be too personal. When she reaches gnosis, she opens the box and gazes inside, seeing whatever she sees. Now the taunting should reach a more personal and vicious attitude. This continues until they close their box again.
The box then is dealt with in whatever manner she sees fit. It can be destroyed, left open in a spot of sunlight, or kept for future uses as it may be a good idea to do this more then once.
When the first person is finished, another takes her place until the entire group has a turn.
Banish with laughter and embraces
Has the spark gone out of your relationship? This spell uses spices to add spice to your love life, along with fire to heat up things between you and your partner.
Tools You Will Need:
A fireplace, balefire pit, barbecue grill, hibachi, or other place where you can light a fire safely
Matches or a lighter
A piece of paper
A pen that writes red ink
Do this spell during the Waxing Moon, preferably on a Tuesday
Safely build a small fire. On the paper, write what you find enticing about your partner and what you desire from him or her. Be as descriptive and explicit as you like—no one but you will read what you’ve written. When you’ve finished draw the runes Gebo, which looks like an “X” and Teiwaz, which looks like an arrow pointing up, around the edges of the paper. These two symbols represent love and passion, respectively.
Place the spices on the piece of paper and fold it to make a packet that contains them. Visualize you and your love in a passionate embrace. As you hold this image in your mind, toss the packet of spices into the fire. As it burns, your intention is released into the universe.
Spell to Calm Overreacting
To reduce a tendency to overreact to situations
Items You Will Need:
Lavender essential oil or incense
This can be said on the new moon or whenever needed. It is actually more of an affirmation than a spell, so you might want to memorize it and say it whenever you feel yourself starting to overreact to something. (You only need the candle the first time you do the spell.)
Anoint the candle with lavender essential oil or burn some lavender incense. (Lavender is an easy scent to find and you can use it later to remind yourself not to overreact. If necessary, you can dab a bit of essential oil on a tissue and tuck it in your pocket.) Light the candle and focus for a while on the light and the calming smell. Then say the spell as slowly and calmly as possible.
“I am calm and in control
Rooted in Earth
Soothed by Water
Brought clarity by the Air
The Fire within has burned to embers
I am calm and in control.”
