With doors and windows ajar, and people coming and going with the breeze, one’s attention might turn to natural protection magick in the summer. You can build your psychic armor with the protective energy of Goofer Dust by borrowing this traditional Hoodoo formula. Add it to your repertoire of home and hearth protection potions. Take time out of your busy day to make and use some of this fierce protective dust.

Goofer Dust is designed to protect your space from disruptive spirits (hants) and negative human energy. Here’s the recipe:

Mix equal parts sulfur (brimstone), sea salt, cayenne powder, and black pepper (powdered) and you’ll have homemade Goofer Dust. Make enough of the powder for the job at hand.

You’ll want to spread this in a protective ring around your property. If it is an apartment, loft or condo, make enough to spread out in front of your door. This dust protects the home, blowing forcefully toward bad energy spread by intruders with malicious intentions.

Herbs can be mixed and combined to produce a “recipe” that’s just right for each of us. Since the Sun sign you were born under has such an amazing influence on your health and well-being, using the herbs that correspond with that sign alone can be a tremendous help in times of stress or illness. Here’s a short list of herbs that seem to be tailor-made due to their associations with both the planetary ruler and the positive qualities of this sign.

  • Allspice,
  • Basil,
  • Cayenne,
  • Garlic,
  • Ginger,
  • Mustard,
  • Onion,
  • Pepper.

It’s no secret that Aries is the astrological equivalent of a bullet. It’s a red-hot burst of energy that’s capable of overcoming any obstacle by charging straight for it. The ruler of Aries is Mars, the “red” planet, the ancient god of war who was known for his equally fiery temperament. No wonder, then, the herbs that correspond with your sign are also a bit “hot” to the taste. Use them in cooking to raise your endorphins, the substance Mars loves best. Use them for spells to invoke that Mars energy.
