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."

Red Heart Rubies Rite

If you are like me, you can't afford to buy a ruby on impulse. But I have been gladdened lately by the appearance of three-dollar “rough rubies” at a shop at Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco. If you don’t have a store like that near you, you can shop online at www.ScarletSage.com as they have wonderful stones from around the world. Rubies are stones of great passion. Here is a simple way to light a flame by day that will catch fire with your lover by night.
Hold your ruby in your left hand over your heart and speak these words aloud three times:
I can feel the heat of your skin
and your mouth.
I can taste the kisses sweet.
Your hands on me;
my hands on you.
Oh, lover, hear my song.
Tonight, we will be as one,
all night long.
Now carry your heart-warmed red ruby in your pocket all day long. Don’t forget to give your lover a call and invite him or her over for a long and lovely night.
