To help harness the energy of the supermoon, or any full moon, to help your wishes come true, here’s a fun little project you can do by yourself or with your witchy friends. This also makes a nice activity for esbats that doesn’t require a lot of setup.
- Small Jar with tight-fitting lid
- White or Black candle
- Incense of your choice
- Herbs and Items representing your wish
Find a clear space to work. Make sure it’s free of fire hazards. If possible, try to work near a window through which you can see the moon. (If you don’t have one, that’s all right too, since you’ll be setting the jar out for the moonlight when finished.) Light your candle and choice of incense and get to work.
Select herbs and trinkets which fit inside the jar to represent your wish. For example, if your wish is for money or prosperity, you might include coins or metallic glitter or small craft gems. If your wish is for health, you might include vitamin pills or a charm representing medicine.
Check your books for herbs or crystals that correspond to your wish as well, to give the jar plenty of oomph. The contents of the jar can be whatever you want. Use the materials that resonate best with you.
Some basic herbs for wishmaking include:
- Bay Leaf
- Black Walnut
- Blue Violet
- Chicory Root
- Dandelion Seeds
- Dogwood Petals
- Lotus Root
- Sage Leaf (any color)
- Tonka Bean
- Willow Bark or Leaves
Once your jar is complete, drip three drops of wax from the candle into the jar and circle the mouth of the jar three times with the incense. Then seal the jar and place the jar somewhere that it will be touched by the light of the full moon and leave it overnight.
The jar should work for about a month, or slightly longer if you’re working with a supermoon. When the next full moon rolls around, you can recharge the jar by leaving it out overnight again, or make a new jar with a new wish.
Fantastic news, witchlings! A review of my best-selling book, Grovedaughter Witchery, is set to be published in the December issue of Witches&Pagans magazine!
I’ve read the advance copy of the review, written by one Hugh Eckert, and I can tell you – it’s a review that ANY author would be proud to have attached to their first solo effort. It’s a red-letter day when words like “impressive” and “innovative” are used to describe a book by an indie author in the pagan circuit.
Please join me in supporting the magazine by picking up a copy next month!
Just like last year, my project is not proceeding as expected.
I’ve got plenty of notes for The Grovedaughter’s Year, but since so much of what I want to cover has never been written down or properly quantified except in my own head, it’s slow going.
I’ve still got work to do on The Sisters Grimmoire Vol 2, and my short horror prompts folder is rapidly filling with new ideas that need fleshing out.
I’m starting to think that perhaps I should switch, like I did in 2016, and work something different. After all, I’ve published two new books this year, and that’s an accomplishment for any writer. I think I can forgive myself if I don’t finish a third.
Attention Tidewater Pagans! It’s meet-and-greet time!
Working once again with the incomparable Deb Foley, I’m putting together a special book-signing event at Mystic Moon in Norfolk, VA.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, November 18th, likely from 12n – 4pm or thereabouts. Copies of Grovedaughter Witchery, Pestlework, and The Sisters Grimmoire will be available for purchase in the shop, and I will be available for autographs, photos, and to talk shop with my fellow witches.
Please feel free to stop by! Further updates to follow!
On the night of October 27, 2004, several residents on E—- Road in B—– called the local police station to report a disturbance at the home of one of their neighbors. The reports indicated that a possible home invasion was in progress, as a number of people in dark clothing had been seen moving furtively around the property at [REDACTED], later determined to be the residence of one Alice L—–, a single female in her mid-20s who lived alone. Some callers reported raised voices, which were taken to be indicative of a confrontation between the homeowner and a possible assailant.
Officers arrived on the scene at 23:23H, approximately two minutes after a 911 call indicated that a young woman was seen confronting one or more possible intruders at her front door. However, the caller could not give further information, due to a sudden surge in the local electrical grid which shut down the power for the entire neighborhood. When the responding officers searched the residence, the front door was ajar and there was no sign of Alice L—–.
