Middle Earth Magic: Inspired Ideas and Seasonal Spells for Your Enchanted Life

I grew up on a farm in West Virginia and learned much about herbs, trees, animals, gardening, foraging  and so much about nature. I incorporate this wisdom I learned from elders in my family into my spellwork. When I finally left the farm, I majored in Medieval Studies, my attempt to emulate my idol, J.R.R. Tolkien. All these influences led me to my own blended brew which I call "middle earth magic," containing a mix of the modern and the time-tested "old ways."

AstroGemology: Capricorn Soul Stones and Power Crystals

Capricorns born n late December and early January  have two power stones: jet and lazulite are each stones that have a dark and shadowy appearance representative of the Capricornian planet of Saturn.  Jet, named for its intense black color and hardness, is one of the oldest stones known to man, making it a perfect match for slow and steady Capricorns, who are reputed to grow more youthful as they get older.  Capricorns have great longevity; they live long and prosper!  Lazulite, opaque and often displaying the dark and cloudy blue associated with the energy of the planet Saturn, is good for mental processes and stimulates the frontal lobe.  Dogged and hardworking Capricorns will do well to keep this concentration-enhancing talisman nearby at all times.

Latter half Capricorns get to have lapis lazuli as their talismanic crystal.  This stone was absolutely revered by the Egyptians and other Mesopotamian cultures.  With its bright saturnine blue, this stone connotes wisdom, accomplishment, and value, as befits the latter half of Capricorn.  Capricorns sometimes seem slow and plodding to others, but they are really anything but.  Capricorns are surefooted and careful and will get to the top of the mountain while others fall behind.
