Magickal Correspondences that Every Witch Should Know – Correspondences for Your Home

Correspondences for Your Home

 

When doing magical workings, many people find it easier to structure their rituals or spells based upon magical correspondences — the concept that everything has a signature, of sorts, that connects it to symbols and meanings. For example, if you wanted to do a working related to money, correspondences might include the colors green and gold, as well as herbs such as basil and pennyroyal, and stones like emerald and lodestone.

 

To truly be effective with magic, however, you should learn to find magical correspondences all around you. One exercise we did here on the website was the Magical Mondays series, in which readers were given an ordinary item and asked to come up with magical uses for it. This encouraged folks to think outside the box, and see the magical in the most mundane things. Look at it this way – our ancient ancestors didn’t have catalogs or websites to shop from. They had to create and harness magic using simply what they already owned and what they could gather, nothing else.

 

Let’s take a lesson from them, and consider some magical correspondences of the things you might find around your home.

Feathers, fans, incense

Scales, batteries, weights, magnets
