Lāʻau ʻAno ʻAno – New Year – Super Full Moon Abundance Spell

The Witch & Walnut

New Year Full Moon Spell (1)How lucky are we to have a full moon on New Years Day!! It is also a super moon, lots of good juicy lunar energy to soak up. This spell will work well with the last 2 posts I did here  and here. You don’t have to do them, this will work fine on its own.

You will need:

  • As much live water as you want, ideally a liter. Melted snow works too, rain water, streams, creeks, rivers…. plan to use it for 40 days and keep the remainder for the rest of the year.
  • a pinch of salt
  • a couple bay leaves
  • whole red pepper, dried or fresh
  • onion skins, yellow or purple is fine.
  • a nice bottle or jar to store it in.

ccTake all your dried ingredients and place them around a candle, ideally the candle you used in the ritual to honor the beginning  …

Foodstyles:  Hungarian Mushroom Soup with Fresh Dill

This Hungarian Mushroom Soup with Fresh Dill is creamy, with hints of smokiness and a great umami flavor. It’s the perfect bowl of soup to warm up with this winter! This past month in Portland has felt a bit like my days of living in snowy, frigid New York. The snow and ice here is out of the ordinary and I’m thanking my lucky stars that I purchased these boots in November – A birthday gift to myself. I really didn’t think I’d get much use out of them, except for when we went up to the mountains, but I’ve  […]

Lāʻau ʻAno ʻAno – Ritual to Honor the Beginning

The Witch & Walnut

bbNew year and new promises to yourself and others. The promise of excitement, the unknown and possibilities. As the New Year approaches, its easy to start feeling overwhelmed with resolutions. We start off strong with the possibility of a new life and in a couple weeks that is gone… Where did it go? Why?

Because we let life happen to us, instead of for us!

Start with a cleansing bath/shower, sit at your altar and choose the life you want this year. Inscribe it onto a candle, light it and sit in-front of it. Surround yourself with your favorite things including food. Indulge a bit, you are celebrating and honoring the beginning of a journey that is magical. Allow yourself to get happy, I mean really happy. Excited, create a state of mind as though you are in the exact moment you dream of. Once you get there, make a…

Witchcraft & Menstrual Blood – Part 2

The Witch & Walnut

Witchcraft & Blood Part 2What happens when you are no longer bleeding regularly? As I was working on this post, I received a comment on the last post about this exact thing. The timing couldn’t have been better.

This is what had initially prompted me to start stock piling my own, because one day I to will no longer have any. I wish I could say I had a spell in my bag to make us bleed again, but I don’t.

An acceptable practice in other places is to accept payment by way of menstrual blood. Or if you had a family member that was willing to give it to you. Unfortunately neither of those are really an option for most of us.

Although nothing can replace the blood, you can produce a strong substitute. We all have times that our body will produce vaginal discharge and this can be used. You will need…

Saturn in Capricorn: Explained

The Ghetto Allegory


Saturn is back at home in Capricorn. Be cool. Dadʻs home…and you are either getting ice cream or grounded.

Well now, it has been some time since I last wrote this blog, and really, I have no clue what I am doing now, writing it this time and at this time because I have a lot of stuff to do.

And that is the thing – I have not been able to write my blogs as I usually do because for the last…I donʻt know…letʻs say the last year or five, I have, without my own knowing I have been proverbially AND literally cleaning house because yeah….our celestial dad, Saturn, is home in Capricorn. (Mine is a 6th house Capricorn…meaning that I am actually answering the energies of my Sixth house…HOUSE….not personal planets…read on).

There are a lot of ways to look at it all, ruminate it all, think, say…

A Spell to get into Someones Heart

The Witch & Walnut

aaaYou may consider nudging someone is leaning towards imposing on someones free will. This might not be ethically aligned with your beliefs. However, if you choose to do so, know that honesty is the first approach that should be considered. Simply talking to the person might just get the result you are looking for. My personal belief on this is… Put your ego aside and really think about WHY you need a particular action/re-action from someone to make you feel a certain way.

This spell is quite a popular request, so here it is. Sometimes we need a little more compassion, kindness, empathy, love and understanding. And sometimes we need/want that from people who do not give it so easily. This is also a busy season and lets face it… sometimes we are around people even our own families and wish we could get along a bit better.

You can…

You can have a difficult time staying away from the ex, or sticking to a routine, or this can be fighting with your self. You can be learning new things, teaching new things, or you can be more in a leadership role in general.

I wouldn’t open your messenger or dm on the social media pages, the weirdos, chain letters etc, are out today, if you can avoid having an opinion on the social media for safe measure. You need to be more of a listener today and less responding , not everything needs a response

This can be good news coming your way today, or a popular time on the social media. This can be a positive turn of events. This can be plans working out better than you have planned. This can be emotional stability with certain situations or certain situations working more in your…

January: Wolf Moon

Sabbats and Sabbaths


“Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal like a Dog. If you were to keep company with Wolves, you would find an enormous sense of family within the pack, as well as a strong individualistic urge.”—Medicine Cards, Jamie Sams & David Carson

January 1st is the full moon that is known as the Wolf Moon. It’s one of my favorites. Using the information from the Native American Medicine Cards as our guide, there are several questions we can meditate on during this full moon:

At the beginning of this new year, what is the undiscovered territory we are exploring? What boundaries are we crossing? What new knowledge are we assimilating?

If we feel more like a gerbil on a wheel instead of a pathfinding wolf, what can we…
