Wicca Spirit Book of Shadows » Basic Herbs for a Witch's Pantry

CATNIP -- Catnip is ruled by the planet Venus, and is therefore useful in love, beauty, and happiness spells. One of my favorite uses for catnip is "cat magick". If you feed your cat some catnip, it will build a psychic bond between you and your cat! You can also make a pink sachet and fill it with Catnip to wear or carry to draw love to you. Another fun use for catnip is to grow some in your home. CEDAR CHIPS -- Useful in healing, purification, protection, and money-drawing spells. CHAMOMILE -- I drink Chamomile tea whenever I need to make sure I get a good night's sleep, and it never fails to work for me!

CINNAMON -- Cinnamon is a wonderful herb to either burn as an incense or make into a sachet. CLOVES -- Their magickal properties include banishing evil (exorcism), clearing your head, protection, love, and money. EUCALYPTUS -- It is the best herb I know of for healing, and can be used for protection as well. What is Our Heart? When we refer to the heart, we do not mean your physical heart but your (non physical) spiritual heart, which is the center of your subtle feeling.

What is Our Heart?

It is located at the center of your chest and it is where your true self (also known as spirit or atman) is located. Spiritually speaking a human has 7 major chakras. One of those chakras is known as the Heart chakra or Anahata. Our spiritual heart is located inside our heart chakra. The picture below depicts our spiritual heart location in relation to our heart chakra, relative to our human physical body. Heart and Inner Heart As you can see from the picture, within our spiritual heart we have our spirit or true self. Athame. An athame, used in Wiccan ritual practices.

Athame

An Athame or Athamé (/əˈθɒm/, /ˈæθəmeɪ/ or /əˈθeɪmiː/) is a ceremonial dagger, with a double-edged blade and usually a black handle. It is the main ritual implement or magical tool among several used in the religion of Wicca, and is also used in various other neopagan witchcraft traditions. A black-handled knife called an arthame appears in certain versions of the Key of Solomon, a grimoire originating in the Middle Ages.[1] There has been speculation[3] that Gardner's interest and expertise in antique swords and knives, and in particular the kris knives of Malaysia and Indonesia, may have contributed to the tool's central importance in modern Wicca.[4] On the other hand, the athame stands as one of the four elemental tools in Wicca; traditionally standing for fire, as does the ritual sword.

Appearance[edit] Crone: C 1996, Bayla Bower, Crone 'Composition IX' by Kandinsky The crone eludes precise definition.

Crone:

Some traditions, organizations, and individuals variously define the crone as a woman who is either 50, 52, or 56, post-menopausal, consciously aging, willing to acknowledge her shadow side. Crone is a term used to describe an ancient archetype, an aspect of the triple goddess (maiden/mother/crone), and the third phase of a woman's life. Killing a Bad Habit.
