To Cure A Headache
Here are a few old Gypsy cures for a headache:
- Rub your forehead with a stone and then cover the stone with soil.
The ache is said to be absorbed by the soil.
- Alternatively, you can rub a headache away by rubbing a horseshoe on your forehead.
(A piece of iron is said to work just as well.)
- Yet another method is to lie down and place a quartz crystal on your pillow. If you can’t lie down, try holding a quartz to your head for a few minutes to relieve the discomfort.
- Rosemary oil dabbed on the temples and third eye will end most headaches.
Romany Rosemary Divination
A sprig of rosemary can be used to divine a yes or no answer to a question. First, ask the question seven times. Then pluck a leaf from the sprig and say, “Yes.” Pluck another leaf and say, “No.” Continue alternating yes and no with each leaf you pick until the sprig is bare. The last leaf you pick reveals the answer.
From: The Good Spell Book
Rosemary symbolizes remembrance. It is ruled by the sun, and according to the Romanies, is representative of people born under the zodiac sign Aries. So the following love charm is particularly effective on people born under the sign of the Ram.
In April or May, when rosemary is in season, choose pliable, willowy stems and bind them together into the shape of a heart. Form a mental image of the one you wish for. Then secure the rosemary heart with yellow ribbon, and if you have any threads from your partner’s clothes or strands of hair, weave these in to create a stronger vibrational link. If your desired one is born under Aries, weave in a few strands of wool too.
Place the rosemary heart in a white envelope, and put it under your pillow. Before you sleep, repeat the words:
Divine Love bless my sleep
My true lover I shall keep.
The rosemary will dry with time and its life force will fade. When you feel your spell has brought the one you want closer, burn the heart in a fire, thinking while you do it of the flames of passion.
