Just finished this book. It was great. I learned a lot of versatile information.
There is not only a lot content about how to hex and curse, but also a lot about how to manifest akashic energy which can be used for all kinds of magick.
Moreover, there are many ancient historical grimiores and texts that it provides access to!, as well has how to even use psalms in magick, ancient Chinese magick, magick of the Philippines and more.
It teaches how to employ spirits, saints, demons&angels, animals&insects to assist in working.
Above all, it most importantly taught me how to channel my energy to it's fullest potential, regardless of magickal intentions. Overall, it's a great read for any witch, even if "black magick" isn't your thing- you will still be able to know how to identify, defend against it, and remove it with this book.
🔮🐾Power Animal of the Week🐾🔮 Which card did you choose? Here is your Power Animal Guide for the week of Sept 25 - Oct 1. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Card 1 - Dolphin 🐬
Medicine: ့healing, blessings ့
Dolphin is a bringing of light, blessings, and healing. The dolphin song brings a vibration that creates healing, bringing light into your energy field that shakes away stagnation. If you were drawn to Dolphin this week you’re asked to focus on finding things that take you out of your negative mindsets and brings more light to your being. Whatever brings you true joy, that’s where you need to put your attention this week. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Card 2 - Nightingale 🌙
Medicine: ့healing the throat chakra ့
Nightingale sings its beautiful song from high hidden places in the dark cover of night. They go unnoticed by the eye but the ear and the heart can’t mistake the beauty of the ethereal song it sings. If you were drawn to Nightingale this week you’re asked to use your voice, focusing on the Hight Heart Chakra, a minor chakra located between the Herat and Throat. What song do you need to sing? What fearless message needs to be let out? Sing it, write it, speak it…just let it out. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Card 3 - Lizard 🦎
Medicine: ့instinct, sensitive ့
Lizard hangs close to the ground, its belly on the earth and its sense of perception high and alert. Lizard can feel vibrations of what’s coming long before the eye takes notice. But that means Lizard takes in a lot more information than most others all the time. If you were drawn to Lizard this week keep your ear and heart to the ground, pay attention to the subtle energies of what’s happening around you. There are things coming you need to sense early. Just know that too much stimulation will hinder your perception to withdraw a little this week and tune in to the ethers instead. .

✨ Cosmic Morning ✨
Another new deck arrived yesterday, the gorgeous #cosmictarot . This first photo is its first advice for me for today -- Five of Swords. Man, I dig this rendering. ✨
When was the last time you went out in your backyard and lay, spread-eagle, like a snow angel with your face up to the sky? If you can't remember, do it now. How does it make you feel? Do you feel expansive and free? Small in the great vastness of the Universe? Release? Inexplicable happiness? Inexplicable grief? I feel all these things in this card.
In the traditional RWS, the focus of the card is often on loss and active betrayal. Here the focus seems to be on surrender, perspective, release after a build-up of tension, and receptivity. Notice the man's looking upward -- not downward, not outward, not inward. There is a Higher, Loving Power at play. Surrender to it. ✨
Swipe left for a shot of mine and The Cosmic Tarot's deck interview, interpretation of which may or may not follow in a separate post.
I had this great conversation with a friend, we were talking about how sometimes we humans can get caught in the cycle of " why me, if I just could..." fill in the dots, and in truth all we have to do is stop that certain flow of energy. It's like we are drowning in a birdbath, stand up already. Sometimes we don't realize we are in our own way. Habits are hard to break, awareness is the first step. Are you drowning in a birdbath? Stand up. 🙏🏻 Jen #witchesofinstagram#aware#pagan#standup#brave#waterelement#Mabonmessage#liftup#getup#fierce
Last night's ritual bath consisted of red wine/honey to appease the Divine, Japanese sake as a tribute to my Asian ancestors, pomegranate juice hand crushed/coconut oil to represent femininity, epsom salt/lemon leaves/California White Sage leaves/baking soda for cleansing/banishing negativity/protection, bay leaves to enhance psychic visions, fresh strawberries as both an aphrodisiac and for happiness, and finally American wild rosemary (wooly blue curls) for purification. Of course there were many candles, crystals, and incense! It was the first time I dabbled into blood magic and I swear the whole room was vibrating. Never in my life have I experienced a more intimate moment with myself, the craft, and Divine. Feeling super refreshed, energized, and driven!! I'm still "high" from last nights ritual 😈🔮🙏💜 PSA: Please practice blood magic safely! Contrary to what Hollywood would make you think, not much is needed. Luckily, I work at the hospital and have access to lancing devices that are usually used to check blood glucose levels. They are completely sanitary, make a tiny cut hat can draw up to 10-15 drops of blood, and are one time use only! #witchesofinstagram#witchcraft#ritualbath#witchesgonnawitch#candlemagic#tlc#somoteitbe
Jupiter is finishing up her journey through Libra which will end on October 11th.
First though she has a final opposition to Uranus Sept. 28th, creating tension with interactions and relationships.
The great change maker and the planet of expansion are tag teaming you into a new aspect of your self so you can feel more balanced and fired up.
Boundaries are bound to be drawn. Remember every interaction has some form of mirroring.
Likely you will see some big emotions coming up to process so you can create change.
Remember it takes two to tango.
This all takes places as Pluto goes direct in Capricorn bringing with it subconscious issues to conscious planning around practical steps to take to create change.
Don't get lost into overwhelm.
Take little steps forward.
How can you create more space for you this week so you don't lose your cool?
This is a great time for Intuitive Healing work or Astrological chart reading.

Settled in back home. Our back yard has flourished since we've been away, with exception to our tallowtree's autumnal shedding of crimson & golden leaves. I'm not sure how much was recovered from the storm's damage but I am grateful for what I do have now. The following months will be challenging, but I have magick on my side, and I am hopeful for a peaceful outcome regardless.
Happy Autumn. 🍁
