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."

One Minute Magic: Candle and Crystal Combinations

Nature is the ultimate creator. At a nearby gardening or hardware store, get an assortment of seed packets to plant newness into your life. If your thumb is not the greenest, try nasturtiums, which are extremely hardy, grow quickly, and will spread to beautify any area. They also reseed themselves, which is a lovely bonus. Light the following candles, charging them with appropriate gems and stones:

Green candle with peridot or jade for creativity, prosperity, and growth

Orange candle with jasper or onyx for clear thinking and highest consciousness

Blue candle with turquoise or celestite for serenity, kindness, and a happy heart

White candle with quartz or limestone for purification and safety

Put the seeds under the soil with your fingers and tamp them down gently with your wand, the branch, which you should also stick in the ground at this time. Water your new moon garden, and affirmative change will begin in your life that very day. Get ready for the exquisiteness of new love. Ahhhhh!

    I wish there were "like" buttons on here, so I'll just do the longhand and say I like this! lol...but really, great idea, thank you. Can't go wrong with candles and crystals and I love the gardening aspect.
