No matter what your spiritual path looks like, every Witch can benefit from possessing a thorough, comprehensive Herbal Grimoire. Many practitioners include such contents as a guide for the magical correspondences of different herbs, a list of various herbal substitutions for spellcrafting, and last, but not least – a reference section that lists commonly found baneful herbs and their toxicity levels.
This herb correspondence chart is the culmination of years of research. We hope this reference guide will help you to understand the magical properties of herbs, roots, flowers, barks and resins. It is our goal to provide others with accurate sources of information to enrich their lives and their Craft. What are some ways you can implement the information in the following guide into your own practice? Click on the link below to view the chart.
It’s Beltane day, and we are at the halfway point of spring and summer. Today is a day for lover’s trysts, beauty magick, and to commune with the spirits of nature. Gather some flowers and spring leaves from your garden, or pick up a small bundle of flowers from the florist and arrange them in a vase at home.
Share some wine with your lover. Sprinkle the bed sheets with fragrant rose petals. Light a few red and white candles to encourage love and magick, and to bring the energies of the sabbat into your boudoir.
If you like, you can add a Green Man representation to your altar setup. Simply set the candles in their holders on either side of the Green Man’s face and then scatter flowers around that. Simple and beautiful. You can keep it simple or go for drama; it’s up to you!
Just set a magickally romantic and passionate mood. And don’t forget to practice safe sex. It is Beltane, you know; fertility magick and all of its energies are at their peak.
Light your candles and repeat the charm:
Beltane is a day of magick, ardor, and love May the Old Ones now bless us all from up above. With spring flowers I call Flora to bless us here This lush green foliage calls the Green Man to be near. A night for enchantment where faeries circle around Let my magick bring romance and let passion abound.
I am sure you can figure out what to do next. Allow the candles to burn out in a safe place. Blessed be!
