This magical powder uses the power of Gemini and Mercury to quickly and easily find information and/or to encourage the smooth flow of communication. It can be used by itself, or added to other forms of magick, such as at the bottom of a candle, sprinkled on a written spell, etc.
To start, find and mix the following ingredients with a mortal and pestle:
- Dried white rose petals
- Silver glitter
- Blue powder
- Dried vervain
- Dried orris root
With your finger or a pencil, draw the symbol of Mercury and the symbol of Gemini in the powder. Hold your hands over the powder, asking that the mixture be instilled with the dynamic energies of Gemini. Store the powder in a plastic bag that contains a moonstone.
To put to use, place a teaspoon of the Mercury powder in the palm of your hand and blow off your fingers as you ask the element of air to speed your request and return the necessary details to you as quickly as possible.
Optimum times for the making of this powder are when the Sun, Moon, or Mercury are in Gemini. If it happens that all three are in Gemini at the same time – the power of this powder will be tripled.
This bath is used to sweeten your energy and magnetize your aura to your desires. You will need:
- Fresh flower petals
- A splash of rose water
- A teaspoon of cinnamon
- A teaspoon of honey
- Your favorite perfume or oil
- Palo Santo or Sage
Burn some Palo Santo, or Sage to make the space sacred. Light candles, put on music, create an ambiance. Fill the tub and add the honey, rose water, cinnamon, perfume or oil, and lastly the flower petals. Hold your hands above the water and state your intention. Speak from your heart. Soak in this mixture for 25 minutes or longer. Absorb all of it’s beautiful energy. Relax and visualize your desires. See yourself with them now. Do not rinse off after. Air dry if possible.
While this bath is great for when there is a New or Full Moon in Taurus, it is also appropriate when the Sun is in Taurus, or if your birth sign is Taurus, or you have a special affinity for Taurus.

Drink this tea an hour before undertaking any form of divination. If you wish, you can continue sipping it throughout the divination process.
- 3 tsp rose petals
- 1 tsp jasmine flowers
- 2 crushed bay leaves
- 1 pinch of nutmeg
- 1 pinch of cinnamon
Note: This blend is for one person and is intended to have half a pint of boiling water poured over it. Allow the infusion to stand for 10 minutes before straining and do not stir, as this bruises the plants. Obviously, you can adjust the amount of water or standing time to your own taste. If you prefer your tea sweet, add a little honey, not sugar, to the strained infusion.
Mix the following herbs together in a clockwise direction, and place into a container until needed:
- Hibiscus flower
- Lemon Balm
- Meadow Sweet
When wanted to drink, take 2 tablespoons and place in teapot with boiling water. Let steep for 5 minutes. Visualize and chant:
Herbal brew of lover’s emotion,
With intent I fortify.

Their lover shall intensify.

No, this isn’t to banish unwanted bitches, it’s to banish – or rather, ground out and transform into peace – negative feelings you yourself have, usually at work or in other circumstances where your anxiety level and desire to choke someone bare-handed rise as does your blood pressure. I keep a jar of this stuff in my desk and inhale its scent to alleviate bad moods, surliness, PMS, and other I-hate-my-species feelings.
Items you will need:
- Peppermint leaf
- Peppermint oil
- Lavender buds
- Lavender oil
- Pinch of catnip

Blend all the ingredients together and grind into a mush, using the essential oils to intensify the smell and bind everything together so it’s moist and pasty. If you can’t find amber powder add a little more sandalwood. When it’s completely mixed, store in a jar.
When you feel the bitch starting to come out open the jar and smell it for a few seconds.Always keep the lid on when not in use.
