Natural Oestara Eggs

Natural egg-dying is like recycling. It takes a li’l bit longer to do, but gives you that Oh-Im-soooooo-WC (witchly correct) feeling.

Cover your plant material (see list below) with about 3 inches of water, bring to a boil, and simmer until the color looks good. You’ll probably have to let the eggs sit in the dye overnight, so if you’re planning more than one color per egg, start this a few days before Oestara. Experimenting is half the fun, but here are some hints to get you started:

Yellows- daffodil petals, saffron, turmeric, onion skins Blues- blueberries, red cabbage leaves & vinegar Greens-broccoli, coltsfoot Pinks- cochineal, madder root Browns – walnut shells, tea, coffee

Wanna get fancy? Gather some small leaves, ferns, flowers and grasses. Dip them in water (to help them stick) and press them onto your eggs. Wrap each egg in a piece of cut up pantyhose and secure it with a twist tie before dyeing. When you remove the flower or leaf, it’s design will appear (either in white or in your first dye-color). Rub your finished eggs with a tiny bit of vegetable oil on a soft cloth to shine them.

Too hard?? No hosiery??? Okay, try using crayons to draw spirals and pentagrams on the eggs before dying them.

Now, plan a fertility ritual for your garden. Bury an Oestara egg in the east corner of your garden, or one egg for each direction, or dig an entire circle for them (depends on how much you hate egg-salad).

T is for a Spell to Determine the Truth

T

 

 

Spell to Determine the Truth

You will need the following items for this spell:

1 Egg

1 White Candle

Rainwater

Egg Holder

Divining Oil or Vegetable Oil

Open a fresh egg and dispose of its contents. Do not wash the shell. Place the half shell on or in something to secure it. A soft-boiled egg server is perfect, but anything that will hold the half shell and prevent it from tipping over is fine.

Fill the half shell almost to the brim with rainwater. If you have Divining Oil, place a drop or two in the water now. Do not stir. If you have no Divining Oil, place a drop or two of a natural vegetable oil in the water. Once again??do not stir.

Light a single candle and slowly pass it over the eggshell three times, reciting the following words as you do so:

As of the earth

So let it be

That all that I seek

Be shown to me

Put down the candle. Place the tip of your right index finger into the water in the eggshell. Keeping your right index finger in the water, pick up the shell with your left hand and over a sink or some other suitable place, crush the shell while your finger is still in the water. Dispose of the shell. Extinguish the candle.

For the next twenty-four hours, your right index finger will tingle whenever it is near the truth.

This spell can be repeated as needed.

Egg Jinx Removal Spell

Egg Jinx Removal Spell

For many years the ancient Voodoo priests have used the power of eggs to help
combat the power of evil spells and bad luck. They believe thatthe egg possesses
strong magical powers and in the right hands can cause bad luck or good luck
depending on the will of the practitioner. If you are plagued by evil spells and bad luck,
then do this powerful ancient Voodoo egg spell to help you remove any negative
conditions from your life.
1. You must purchase a brown fresh egg before noon of that day. Make sure that you
start this when the moon is waning. It is very important that this egg be fresh.
Place this egg in a brown bag and tie the neck of the bag with a black cloth string.
Place this bag under your bed.
2. Each night before retiring to bed, you must open this bag and take the egg out
and rub it all over your body. When done, put the egg back into the bag, take a
deep breath and blow three times into the bag. When you are blowing into the bag,
you must imagine that all the bad luck is leaving your body, via your breath.
When done, place the bag back under your bed. Do this for nine days.
At the end of nine days, take the bag with the egg and dispose of it outside your home.
3. Note: Each time that you blow into the bag, you must immediately tie it back up.
If by the end of seven days you notice that your bag is moving on it’s own.
Stop, and dispose of the bag immediately.
DO NOT LOOK INTO THE BAG. Make sure that the bag is secure.
Do not play with this. Only do this if you are serious about destroying the bad luck in your life.
