Diana ~ Love & Witchcraft

She is known as the goddess of the hunt, fertility, witchcraft, and love between women. Her symbols include the sky and crescent moon, and her tools are the bow and arrow. Work with her for help in hitting your mark, whether it be a job, a birth, partnership or any other desired outcome.

High Priestess ~ Intuition & Subconscious

The High Priestess of the Major Arcana Tarot deck is the guardian of the subconscious. Work with her to guide you to your higher, intuitive self. Creative pursuits as well as healing processes where we have to dig deep require us to access our High Priestess within. She reminds us that the answers to our questions reside within us, we only have to trust ourselves. Her ruling planet is the moon, making the night of a full or new moon an ideal (but not necessary!) first time to light.

Wisdom ~Wisdom & Intuition

The owl is a common familiar of witches, shamans, and the world of magick, and mythologically is associated with Athena, the goddess of wisdom and strategy. The owl is considered a powerful guide in evoking spirits and delivering messages from the dead, as they travel freely between the material and spiritual worlds. Light for wisdom, intuition, renewal and ancestral work.

Magenta Magick/Manifest ~ Action & Spiritual Power

Magenta is a high vibrational frequency that works fast so expect speedy results. Magenta also energizes other rituals where immediate action and high levels of spiritual power or healing are required. Magenta is associated with Wednesday as well as the Zodiac signs of Capricorn, Pisces, and Scorpio.

Lucky Black Cat ~ Luck & Magic

This popular familiar among witches is also a friend to gamblers, known to bring luck in money matters, particularly in card games and the lottery. The cat-as-harbinger of luck extends to all black arts though, including the granting of invisibility and return of lost love.

House Bless ~ Peace & Protection

This flame is a nod to Hestia, the Greek Goddess of the hearth (otherwise known as Vesta, her Roman equivalent). Her essence is symbolized by fire, while the keys symbolize a doorway to your own divinity and psychic space. Burn for peace, protection and tranquility of home and hearth.

Cut & Clear ~ Freedom & Lightness

The broken rose is for love, and the lemons for purification. Let this be your weapon to cut psychic ties to energies that no longer serve your higher self. This is a powerful spell, not to be taken lightly. But commit to cut and clear and you will find freedom, lightness of being and love.

Ace of Cups ~ Love & Relationships

Based on the card from the Minor Arcana of the Tarot, the Ace of Cups signifies a new energy in your emotional, social or spiritual life. Welcome new beginnings in projects or relationships (including romantic love, friendships, or creative relationships), or a renewal of energy in matters that are already underway.
