Greetings and Hello,
How have you been since we last spoke? I would love to hear!!! I have been doing much pondering and exploring. We are now close to half way through our ‘one year’. Having the privilege to sit amongst many open minds I have been able to listen to discussions on this very subject. Thoughts that are shared are along the lines of…. this isn’t what I expected…. a lot harder than I thought…. wow…. I thought things were going to change for the better…...I thought this was a fresh start…. etc. I must admit I have shared some of these same sentiments at times.
I got to thinking about first years, one years, of lives…. animals, people, beasties of all creation……it isn’t an easy one at all. Think back…. for some us farther than others…. we had to figure out how to work these skin bags we were dropped into, how to communicate with our clan, how to get our needs met, grow, cut teeth, learn to walk and all the bumps, bruises, falls and frustrations that go along with the growing. Exciting!!! Full of change and potential. Not easy. Not clear. And often times quite painful
It seems this 'one year' energy is drawing more to The Abyss. In Qabalah it is often refered to as Da'at. In our lives we circle the pool of the swirling waters many times, sometimes being called to dip a toe or ankle into the whirl of all, there is a point when we are called to dive head first and find bottom, explore the shadows of chaos and face what our soul must remember in order to evolve. Face what we have skillfully hidden, shine the light in all the dark corners. This process is never easy and often many retreat due to the overwhelming nature of the quest.
If this feels like you, I truly encourage you to keep moving forward…. just keep putting on foot in front of the other. While this may be terrifying at times I promise you it is worth it for what stands on the other side of chaos and fear is peace, understanding and purpose. It IS worth it!!!
No matter where you are standing I do hope life is treating you well and giving you many reasons to smile and find your bliss!!!
Love, Hugs and Many Blessings,
The Nine of Swords

The Intro to Hoodoo is up and going. If you would like to be notified when the next round starts just drop me an email.
When I first began swamping many, many, many years ago I started making notes when plants and animals started showing up, leaving, growing, blooming, seeding, etc. I started to notice patterns and found three key markers that it was Spring: The Red Winged Blackbirds come back, The Spring Peepers start singing, and the Forsythia show their lovely yellow blooms. That happened the last week in February in Orlean, VA. What do you notice in your area as Mama Earth starts to wake up?
Greetings Beautiful Beings!!!March is upon us...already ;P...and fertility energy abounds as the Earth wakes up in our Northern Hemisphere. Wait, wait, stay with me, fertility is not just for babies any more!!! Fertility is anything we want to grow; prosperity, love, happiness, peace, and so on. We are also dancing in the energies of a one year. One is the seed, the beginning. And we want to plant our seed in fertile ground. Now is the time to plant what you wish to grow strong for the next 9 year cycle. What is your next big adventure? Plant it now!!!
Ah, what else would we expect except a Pentacle for our fertility month, The Six of Pentacles. Whenever this card shows up the first question that comes to mind is who do you identify with, the giver or the receivers? Rest assured, no matter which, its a good thing!!! If its the giver, this is a time to be on the look out for ways to share your abundance, knowing this will help you, and others grow. If its one of the receivers, know that this is a time to allow yourself to be open to the generosity of others, sometimes we let our pride get in the way. Often this card can be a reminder for us to check on our ego to see if it is in balance and harmony. Pairing this lovely with our March energies reminds us that abundance, like energy, need to flow freely. When we participate in that natural process and float on the River of Plenty we will always have what we need. Energy follows intent, state your intent of manifestation and get ready for a delightful journey.
Magick Money Oil
A green glass bottle with a lid or stopper
A small piece of Tiger's Eye or Aventurine
4 ounces of Olive Oil
A few drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
Gold or Silver glitter
*Best time for this spell in during a waxing Moon on a Thursday.
Clean your container and stones on all levels, gather everything up and head to your Sacred/Ritual space. Prepare it as you usually do, calling in whoever you usually invite. When you are ready, focus your intent on the task at hand. Pour the oil into the bottle, add an odd number of Peppermint Essential Oil, 7 is good for this size and work. Add your glitter. Drop in your stone(s). Shake and charge while saying the following or something similar:
By the powers that be,
Bring new fertility to me.
In this oil, find the power
Add abundance from this hour.
Let your oil brew for at least 7 lucky days. Then it is ready to use for dressing candles, Mojo Bags, talismans, any anointing and spell work you desire!!! It can also be place directly on the skin.
Ritual Uses: Herb of Immortality and Protection. Red clover is used to bring protection and blessings to domestic animals. Blossoms are tinctured in vinegar for three days. The vinegar is then sprinkled
around the house to discourage unwanted entities. Carry some flowers in your purse or pocket as a protective charm and to attract a new love. Finding a two-leafed clover means a lover will come to you again. The four-leafed clover brings peace of mind, psychic powers, money, and treasure and gives the possessor the
ability to see fairies. The five-leafed clover brings money. To dream of clover foretells a happy marriage.
