The purpose of this enchantment is to carry with you a quality you want to draw to yourself. Qualities include love, abundance, luck, a job, a higher spiritual vibration, or losing weight. It could be whatever you want in your life!
You will need: A stone that holds the qualities you want to draw (more about that in a second). An herb to match that vibration. A Full Moon.
If you don’t already have a stone with the qualities you want to draw, visit a metaphysical shop (one of my favorite things to do!). You should be able to find the perfect stone for less than five dollars. For example, Rose Quartz would be good for drawing love; sodalite would be good for communicating better. You can google “meanings of stones” to help you.
Research the herb that carries the same vibration.
I will use “drawing love” as my example for enchanting a stone. I will use basil as my herb, and Rose Quartz as my stone. As a little-known side note, Rose Quartz is pink and works to balance the heart chakra. I find this interesting: the 7th chakra is sometimes viewed as white, and the base chakra can be viewed as red. Red and White combined make pink, the color of Rose Quartz. Our heart chakra is the center of the chakras, and the conduit or fulcrum of spirit and body. There are three “higher chakras” above, and three “earthly chakras” below. But I digress…
On a full moon, place the herbs on a small plate. I am using basil in my example, so I would put four or five large basil leaves on my plate. If it’s a different kind of herb like tarragon (protection) that has tiny leaves on a stem or mustard seeds (prosperity), use enough to make a small bed or mound on which to place your stone. You can also use dried herbs right from your cupboard; simply make a small mound with the dried herbs.
Hold your hand over the herbs, and visualize white light from the heavens moving through the top of your head, through your heart, and down through your arm and hand and saturate the herbs with loving Oneness. Feel gratitude for the herbs working with you and for you. Say a blessing that feels right to you. As an example, “I bless this sacred basil and am filled with gratitude as it lays the groundwork for drawing my intended love close to my heart.”
Hold your stone. Visualize your perfect scenario, more confidence or love or prosperity. What does that look like and feel like to you? Make it real. Very real. What does it feel like? Feeeeeel it. Visualize that energy going into your stone as you hold it. Again, draw divine white light from the heavens through the top of your head, to your heart, through your arms and hands and into the stone.
Place the stone onto the pillow of herbs. Continuing to hold your hands above the stone, say the following or similar words that hold meaning for you, “I bless this sacred Rose Quartz. Your sacred vibration draws my intended love (prosperity, perfect job, etc.) close to my heart.” The words are less important than the intention and what you are feeling. An important note is to be clear about being in the space of already having what you want, and not being in the space of needing what you want! For instance, really be in love while doing this enchantment, and not in the place of wishing you had love.
Leave your stone in the moonlight for a twenty-four hour period. Charged with your intention, it will gain energy and be cleansed in the moonlight while you sleep. If the full moon is during the day (check an ephemeris), leave the stone out during the day as well. If you simply cannot leave your spell work outside, place the plate in a window.
After twenty-four hours, pick up your stone and feel the yummy vibrations it carries. Bless the herbs and either burn them on charcoal and thank them for their work, or scatter them to the winds asking the winds to carry your desires to the Universe, or bury the herbs letting the earth element plant the seeds. It’s nice to match your astrological element with this part. For example, burn if you’re a fire sign, bury if you’re an earth sign, scatter upon water if you’re a water sign. Keep the stone with you during the day, in your pocket, wallet, purse, or desk drawer. Refer to your feelings during your enchantment often, and just watch what wonders you draw!

“Trenton drugged and kidnapped me. I was powerless.”
Cassie’s neighbors have secrets, and she is one of them.
A Witch taken against her will to an isolated, frozen wilderness on an impossible quest, Cassie defends herself against Trenton who has gone over to the dark side. One minute he’s adorable and charming, and the next weird, uncaring, and hostile. And now, Cassie fears for her life.
Winter Solstice draws near, and Cassie performs magical spells to gain clarity. Instead she is shocked by visions and mind jumps into the lives of strangers on the brink of disaster.
Why is she in a hostile, threatening wilderness? What is causing the horrific visions? Cassie discovers there is much more at stake than her own survival. To survive, she must overcome impossible odds.

A murder of more than forty crows appeared outside my window today (a group of crows is called a murder). They were magnificent. The bay and the sky were gray, a perfect backdrop for the magick that arrived. Crows are magickal. There is strength, a pride that borders on arrogance, grace, and of course they’re famous for their trickery. I love that crows also have a deep sense of community and they post guards while feeding to protect the group. Crows and ravens are steeped in the lore of many traditions, and they fill our sacred texts with stories of magick and signs – omens. I rarely see one crow on the bay, let alone a murder. I felt fortunate and blessed.
When something unusual happens in your life, take note. Synchronicity is playing a part in your life, and Life wants you to pay attention! There is a difference between connecting life circumstances that really don’t mean much, and finding meaningful synchronicities to guide you along Life’s path.
The crows visited at a time when I was feeling really good. So many wonderful things have been happening lately: I’ve started a new health regime, I’ve been able to focus on my work, my relationships are outstanding, and I just printed out the last draft of “Winter Shock” for the last edit before it goes to press. I made a last-minute change and named one of my characters “Raven” which is in the crow family, and the cycle of power for the Raven is Winter Solstice, which is the basis of my book. I didn’t remember that until I read about Crow and Raven today (Animal-Speak by Ted Andrews; I love that book!). Just as Crows and Ravens are in the same family (the only difference being size), Signs and Omens are in the same family, and often used to define each other in various dictionaries. So, the murder of crows was a beautiful sign of abundance, good news, and an acknowledgment of even more good magick coming my way. It was a sign that I am on the right path.
Sometimes signs are literal signs! Billboards and advertisements can be omens, especially if you ask for them. When is a sign not a sign? If you’re thinking about getting a new mattress and you suddenly see a dozen stores displaying advertisements that their mattresses are on sale might not be a “sign” that you should get the new mattress: Mattresses are always on sale. That is simply your mind trying to fulfill a need. We’re wired that way. If you’re not getting a restful night of sleep, that in itself is a good sign that you need to get a new mattress! True signs that take you farther on Life’s path are a little more complex than that, and it just takes a little practice to be able to interpret them for yourself and others.
The best way to see a sign is often overlooked: ask for a sign. Better still, ask for a specific sign. Make it something unusual. Sacred texts are full of stories of “asking for signs”. I once had an incredibly difficult choice to make that would change my entire life. Finally, one morning I asked the Universe to see a gorilla as a “Yes” sign. I chose a gorilla after a lot of thought; a gorilla would be unusual enough that I would know it was a sign and not a coincidence. If I had asked for an apple, it would be harder to consider that a sign! I thought I would see a picture of a gorilla somewhere. What happened was quite different.
I was very busy as my day went on, and not thinking about “The Sign” I had asked for. I pulled into a gas station where I normally bought gas. I liked the owners of the gas station. They had hired a sweet guy who was mentally challenged, needed help, and most likely wouldn’t have been hired elsewhere. He was always friendly, but never spoke beyond a short list of gas station lingo and always said, “thank you” like he meant it. I rolled down my window and instead of asking me what kind of gas I wanted, he asked, “Why do gorillas have big noses?” I was shocked and said, “Why?” He said, “Because they have big fingers.” And then he just laughed and laughed. He misunderstood my open mouth and the look of oh-my-Goddess-what-just-happened, and he started to apologize, and asked if he had done something bad. I said of course not, and that it was the best joke I had ever heard. The Universe had sent me a sign, along with a bonus sign to lighten up about Life’s decisions.
The crows are gone now, but their magick is still working in my heart, telling me to watch for the magick that the day brings. The crows are telling me to keep watching for signs that take me on Life’s path with gratitude and joy.
What signs have you seen lately?
This short story is a present for those of you who asked me to write something about Vampires. This is also a little snack for those of you waiting for Book 2 in the “Grimoire Chronicles” series (thank you for your patience!) And without further ado… ::a red velvet curtain opens::
With This Blood, I Thee Wed
Mare sat on the edge of the bed and again arranged the sheer fabric of her white negligee and its matching peignoir so they would drape in what she hoped was an enticing manner along the sides of her legs. She delicately crossed her feet at the ankles. Too demure. She leaned back on her elbows. Too sexy. Mare stood. The negligee and peignoir draped around her ankles. She walked across the room and turned off the light. The remaining candlelight was far more romantic. The small flames lit the room, and shadows played along the wallpaper of delicate roses. The old Bed and Breakfast rested on a cliff high above the ocean, and the honeymoon suite was spacious and hopelessly romantic.
Mare sat back down on the bed and shrugged her long, shiny black hair behind her. The hair cascaded down her back like freshly draped silk. She had applied her makeup to perfection — ruby lips, soft blush, seductive eyes. She fought the urge to check her makeup again, and fanned the diaphanous negligee around herself on the bed, making her the centerpiece. She envisioned herself a delicate flower waiting for the untold delights her new husband would bring on his return to their honeymoon suite, and she trembled with delight at the thought of his touch.

I think Lady Gaga is an incredible Goddess who creates amazing magick.
She has created and manifested an extraordinary life, and what is the purpose of magick if not to create the life we want — love, success, health, prosperity, and the ability to move beyond these with the ability to give charity to others? Read the rest of this entry
Famous Witches Who Never Made It Out of the Broom Closet
Okay, time for a little witchy fun. We all know that Hollywood has created some really OFFENSIVE Witches – characters that have nothing to do with true Witches or witchcraft, but how about the good Hollywood Witches? We`re all familiar with Hermione, Sabrina, The Charmed Ones, Glinda, and Samantha… but what about all those characters who never made it out of the broom closet? I love these characters. For one reason or another, they have had a positive impact on humankind, but Hollywood NEVER actually called them “WITCHES” – Judge for yourself! Read the rest of this entry
