Spellwork Sundays: Banishing with Bay Leaves, April 21st, 2019

 Spellwork Sundays

April 21st, 2019 - BANISHING WITH BAY LEAVES

 

Hey there! For this Spellwork Sunday I wanted to talk about the magick behind Bay Leaves, also known as Laurel Leaves. Bay leaves have numerous uses, and they are a most powerful tool in aiding communication to your deities, cleansing a space, breaking curses and banishing negativity. Today I want to focus on the aspect of banishing negativity, which is something we can all do at home.


Time / Planetary Hours:

  • Just before, or on the New Moon.
  • Any day or time will work which is why this can be done on a Sunday, but if you can, try to do this on a Saturday as this day is associated with the planet/ god Saturn, and is often related to channeling banishment, changes, motivation, and reincarnation. Saturday is actually named after the planet!

Altar Decor Setup & Suggestions

You can create a simple altar for this, or go out and make it as lavish as you want. Whatever holds importance for your spell is up to you!

  • Dried bay leaves. You can get these from any grocery store in the spice section.
  • A black or white candle 
  • A burn safe plate or bowl, try and abalone shell or copper bowl.
  • A pen, or a marker of your choice

Simple Steps and Procedures:

  • Light the candle using a match, and place on your right side.
  • On the bay leaves, write out things you want to banish. Be very specific, as to not confuse your wish with general sweeping statements. For example: “negative thought patterns about X” “obsessive tendencies with X” instead of "negativity" or "bad vibes"
  • Take the leaf and light with the flame from the candle, saying out loud what you have written. For example: “I hereby release all negative thought patterns I have about X”, or “I banish all obsessive tendencies I have over X"
  • Drop the leaves onto the burn safe bowl or plate, and visualize the attachments being broken.
  • After you are done banishing these energies, restore a chill or peaceful vibe back to your space by singing, putting on some music you can dance to, or burning lavender!


       Celebrate! You are now free from these energies!!!

    Full Moon in Gemini: Slow Your Roll, December 11th/12th, 2019

    This is one of those Full Moons that has more to it than what meets the eye. As an astrologer, this is known as the "Cold Moon," and I'm really beginning to see why. When Gemini really gets to the depths of its core traits, it can be cold and calculating. Detached, and seeking only facts or information. But this isn't why I am connecting this to being a "Cold Moon." While Gemini's usual behavior is chatty and happy go lucky, the aspects between Pluto/ Saturn/ and Venus make this lunation extra, chilly. Venus is moving into a tight conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn.

    This month sure is action-packed. Expect this to be a Holiday season for the books my friends. The month begins with Jupiter making his annual move into to a new sign. Jupiter is the planet of abundance and optimism. Generally, Jupiter magnifies whatever it touches, and in Capricorn, it will be interesting. Generally speaking, Jupiter in Capricorn is considered to be in it’s "fall," or not necessarily at it's best. However, we're gearing up from December 2019- February 2020 to have a whole slew of planets in Capricorn.
