So I had a dream that I found this huge amethyst crystal. And by huge I mean it was at least 2 or 3 feet long and a foot wide. The thing is it was a double pointed crystal and both of the points were broken off to expose jagged ends. I searched around and was able to find the broken points laying on the ground, but could not figure out how to attach them.
Any help with what this might mean? It was very strange and extremely vivid.

Piety isn’t simple: it’s okay to do something small to mark the season. Don’t let complexity get in the way of what you need to do, though. Small things go a long way.

So I wanted to share with you guys the spell I did last night since I’m sure we could all use a little bit of happiness in our lives.
What you need:
Cast your circle however you like and invite any spirits/gods/goddesses you think would be willing to help. Anoint the candle with the two oils all the while thinking of happy things and sunshine and warmth, or even saying a chant or incantation that will bring happiness. Roll the oiled candle in Rosemary. You may want to carve a sigil for happiness into the candle or have one written down near by. Light the candle stating your intention. Ring the bell and your negative thoughts disappear as you picture happy ones. Meditate for as long as you would like or feel is necessary (doing some energy work and bringing some earth energy into myself really helped as well) and then snuff out the candle. Close the circle.
Voila! That is my happiness spell. I really enjoyed it and it definitely made me feel a little bit better. So give it a try and let me know how it works for you guys :)
Well, that was a lovely trip to the astral :) Did my happiness spell, talked to Cernunnos, explored a bit, and came back. I’ve been getting better at this. Also, got some tips on feeling happy and stuff so I’m really excited about the next few days.
Currently in the process of storing herbs from the garden for the winter ❄️ Garbling some sage as well as lemon balm, catnip, and nettles 🌿
How to store herbs:
1. Gather herbs of your choice from your garden or wild forage herbs in a local natural area. Choose herbs that are in full health at their prime. These are the kinds of herbs that will store well.
2. Place collected herbs in a brown paper bag.
3. Store paper bag in a dry, dark place, such as a closet or the trunk of your car.
4. The herbs will dry within a couple of days. Once they have fully dried, go outside and begin garbling, which is when you remove the leaves and flowers from the stem of the plant. I recommend doing this step outside because it can get quite messy! Place the leaves and flowers in a glass jar, and return the stems to nature by putting them in your yard or composting them.
5. When the jar is full, close the lid and store in a cool, dark place.
6. Use for teas, or wrap the herb in a wash cloth with a hair tie and place in a hot bath with you for therapeutic effects.
Making mouthwash. I was asked to make this for a sufferer of recurring gingivitis that won’t clear up, despite antibiotics. I’m working with sage/sauge, mint/menthe and the roots of wood avens/benoîte. Sage is antibacterial, antiseptic and antimicrobial, the mint is also antiseptic and analgesic, helping make it more palatable. The wood avens root is a traditional french plant for mouth problems, often used to treat mouth infections, ulcers, abscesses and swellings. It’s astringent action reduces swelling and helps close the gap between the gums and teeth. It has a taste a little like cloves. I’m making both a strong decoction and a tincture form and adding a little Camargue salt to the mouthwash.
But think about this:
- a witch who does knot magic braiding spells into her hair
- or tying it into his tie or shoelaces
- a witch who does technomagic putting a reminder on their phone that contains a good luck charm
- a kitchen witch making a memory…
Gah this is beautiful!
Yes I am! I tried to start a club there, but it was hard to find other pagans. Although recently, I’ve heard that there are a ton of pagan things going on at Naropa which is the university right down the hill from campus. Boulder is an amazing place for pagans though! There are so many good shops to get supplies at (they are all disguised as Tibet this or Tibet that, but they are great and usually have incense, herbs, altar cloths, etc!) and with the creek and the Flatirons it is really easy to get in tune with nature. If you are staying in a dorm they usually do not allow anything burning so that kind of posed a problem, but then I realized that I could usually get away with small candles and/or sprays instead. Also, the people on campus are super open about pretty much everything. Everyone in Boulder tends to be super liberal and open minded so I have never felt shy about speaking up about my religion or beliefs. In fact, people are usually very interested and often ask you to explain more rather than giving you that crazy look and backing away slowly like I’ve encountered in the more conservative areas of Colorado. Anyways, hopefully that helped a bit! If you have more questions feel free to get off anon and send me more messages :)
