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."

Written in Stone: Crystal Messages

Gems and crystals can give us messages and warnings or powers of persuasion and perception. Here are a few examples of secrets from the stones:

A fossil or a gem containing a fossil, such as amber, will lengthen your life span.

Jasper carved into the shape of an arrow will be a magnet for good luck.

If your malachite jewelry chips or breaks, beware! It is warning you of danger.

Malachite gives great success to salespeople. Keep a malachite crystal in the cash register and wear it during trade shows, presentations, and meetings.

Moonstone is a dieter’s power stone and maintains youthful appearances and attitudes.


Serpentine worn around a new mother’s neck helps her flow of milk.
