The Witches Magick for the 4th Day of the Barley Moon – Marigold and Sunflower Faery Magick

MARIGOLD AND SUNFLOWER FAERY MAGIC

 

This is the time when flowers are in bloom and the energy of faeries is everywhere. In this spell you are creating a faery circle as a way of bringing this fluorescent energy into your life.

You will need a pot of marigolds and thirteen sunflower seeds.

Place the pot of marigolds in a sunny location. Call to Mari, Queen of the Faeries, to protect and give life to the flowers:

Queen Mari, give life to this flower

That bears your name and glows

with your divine fluorescence.

Place the thirteen sunflower seeds in a circle around the marigolds. As you do so, call out to the faeries:

Marigolds and sunflowers,

Spread the magic of faery powers.

Care for the flowers during the month of the barley moon, making sure to give them the care and attention they need to thrive.

The Witches Magick for the 29th Day of the Seed Moon – Blue Ladies Wildflower Spell

gold fantasy

Blue Ladies Wildflower Spell

The Blue Ladies are water and air faeries who live high in the mountains. They are especially fond of butterflies and flowers. The Blue Ladies appear small or large, and they are more beautiful than any mortal, with skin and hair sparkling with ice and snow. They don robes colored with the gray and blue shadows of the snow and have gold and pink wings. The Blue Ladies plant wild flowers on the hills, help meadow grass grow long and green, save mortals and animals from avalanches and harsh mountain storms, and teach shepherds about love and the properties of medicinal plants. Use this spell to ask the Blue Ladies to grant you a special wish for love.

You will need a blue outfit and a package of wildflowers.

After dark, dress yourself all in blue. Hold the seed package in between your hands, and merge with the powers of the faeries. Imagine the seeds growing into blossoming flowers. Say:

Blue Ladies, beautiful faeries

Please bless these seeds with your

magic powers

May you grant my wish for love [state

your wish].

Thank you blessed Ladies, blessed be!

Plant the wildflowers the next morning. As you do, repeat:

Blue Ladies, beautiful faeries

Please bless these seeds with your

magic powers

May you grant my wish for love [state

your wish].

Thank you, blessed Ladies, blessed be!

Faerie Flora and Trees

FAERIE FLORA AND TREES

Foxglove
Name is derived from “Little Folks’ Glove”. Florets are worn by faeries as hats and gloves.

Harebell

Primroses
Make the invisible visible. Eating them lets you see faeries. If one touches a faerie rock with the correct number of primroses in a posy, the way to faerieland and faerie gifts is made clear. The wrong number means certain doom.

Ragwort
Used as makeshift horses by the faerie.

Wild Thyme
Part of a recipe for a brew to make one see the faeries. The tops of the Wild Thyme must be gathered near the side of a faerie hill.

Cowslips
These are loved and protected by the faeries. They help one to find hidden faerie gold.

Pansies
The flower that was used as a love potion by Oberon, a faerie king thought to have been invented by Shakespeare.

Bluebell
One who hears a bluebell ring will soon die. A field of bluebells is especially dangerous, as it is intricately interwoven with faerie enchantments.

Clover
A four-leafed one may be used to break a faerie spell.

St. John’s Wort
Protects against faerie spells and is also used as a healing herb.
Hazel
Celtic legend says it is the receptacle of knowledge; the hazelnut is a symbol of fertility in England.

Rowan
Protects against bad spirits. Used in butter churns so that the butter would not be overlooked by faeries. Bewitched horses may be controlled by a rowan whip. Druids used rowan wood for fires with which they called up spirits whom could be forced to answer questions when rowanberries were spread over the flayed hides of bulls.

Blackthorn
Guarded by the Lunantishee.

Oak
Oakmen are created when a felled oak stump sends up shoots. One should never take food offered by them since it is poisonous.

Willow
At night they uproot themselves and stalk travelers, muttering at them.

Elder
Sometimes is a witch disguised as a tree. Never lay a baby in an elderwood cradle or the faeries will pinch them so they bruise. Burning elder wood is dangerous since it invites the Devil.

Birch
If the spirit of the birch tree (The One With the White Hand) touches a head it leaves a white mark and the person turns insane. If it touches a heart, the person will die.

Alder
Protected by water spirits.

Apple
To ensure good harvests, leave the last apple of your crop for the Apple-Tree-Man.

Ash
Druids wands were made of ash twigs. It also has healing properties. Weak-limbed children were passed through split ash trees which were then bound up. If the tree grew straight, the child would as well. Also may be used as a substitute for Rowan.

Toadstools
Some have poisonous hallucinogenic properties. The Vikings ate it and gain their reputations as berkerkers. In Celtic lore, they are among the food of the gods, as with many red plants. Some toadstools associated with the faerie are Fly Agaric, Yellow Fairy Club, Slender Elf Cap, Dune Pixie-Hood, and Dryad’s Saddle.

Attracting Faeries to Your Garden

ATTRACTING FAERIES TO YOUR GARDEN

Create a garden that is conductive to all life. Put up birdhouses, birdbaths and bird feeders, bat houses and hummingbird feeders.

Plant flowers and plants that are attractive to bees and butterflies. Faeries are attracted to any place where there are butterflies. Put nuts out for the squirrels.

Whatever you do to bring life to your garden will bring faeries as well.

Here is a short list of plants that attract beautiful butterflies and faeries to your garden:

Achillea millefolium (common yarrow)
Aster novi-belgii (New York aster)
Chrysanthemum maximum (Shasta daisy)
Coreopsis grandiflora/certicillata (coreopsis)
Lavendula denata (French lavender)
Rosemarinus officinalis (rosemary)
Thymus (thyme)
Buddleia alternifolia (fountain butterfly bush)
Buddleia davidii (orange-eye butterfly bush, summer lilac)
Potenilla fruitiosa (shrubby cinquefoil)
Petunia hybrida (common garden petunia)
Verbena (verbenas, vervains)
Scabiosa caucasica (pincushion flowers)
Cosmos bipinnatus (cosmos)
Zinnia elegans (common zinnia)

Install a small fountain or waterfall or put in a fish pond. You might want to include statues of faeries. Anything that reflects light or is colorful and moving particularly attracts the gnomes and elves. Both faeries and water sprites like the splashy sound and sight of a fountain.

Leave an area of your garden a bit wild and not too cultivated. It need not be a large space, but having one area that is dedicated to the faeries will make them feel very welcome.

Ask faeries and elves to come to your garden. “Where Intention goes, energy flows.” Whatever you place your conscious awareness on, you will pull into your life. AS you put your attention on faeries and gnomes and the elemental realm, they will respond by being drawn into your garden.
