WitchyWomen Wednesday

37777199_10157749527189498_7220090107636744192_nAriella Upton is a solitary eclectic witch who was raised by a Christian kitchen witch. She has a wealth of knowledge about herbs, crystals, natural remedies, gardening, history, religion and is currently studying astrology. She works as a PA & manager on Maui, and spends her free time with her magickal family in the forests and beaches they call home. Her shop is on Instagram as @the.celestial.rose where she sells jewelry, artesian smudge sticks, antiques, books and more.


Ahh, Venus, how we adore you!  She rules over our relationships, our concept of beauty, our love style and everything we associate with being “nice” in our opinions.  So what do we do now that Venus is in Scorpio? Do we bang anything that moves? Do we cut out everything unpleasent in our lives? Do we change how and who we love completely?

I recently had a discussion about this shift with another astrology-curious friend, and I mentioned to her that since Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, which is associated with sex, death and transformation, that many things ruled by Venus would be experiencing these shifts.

Like what?  Well, all relationships are a matter of Venus because she shows us how we display affection and appreciation.  You may find old friendships, lovers or maybe even a long-term relationship is no longer aligned with your life.  Scorpio is working in your life to transform you from tolerating your existing paradigm to THRIVING. The old relationships that were waiting to crumble will likely be expedited by this Scorpion energy, and you may find it intolerable to associate with these people who need to GTFO of your life.  Let them go in peace, as they are probably experiencing a similar perspective shift about you.

It can be a painful time, and though these people are not physically dead, it may still incite a period of greiving of what has been lost, and that is totally ok.  Greive for the loss, go through the stages, but MOST IMPORTANTLY you must heal and become better than you were before. Don’t bother dumping toxic relationships if you are just going to find new ones.  Have the courage to listen to your intuition and act accordingly from now on.

Venus is also associated with our self-worth, ability to earn and even jewelry or fine clothes.  Positioned in Scorpio, she helps us to reconcile our sexualities and material worth by aligning to what truly feels right and good for our highter selves.  Scorpio is a pretty intense energy, and you are not going to win over her insistence to transform. Allow yourself the space and compassion to eliminate the old baggage weighing you down, which in turn will leave more room for the things we love and are truly passionate about (hey-o, Venus!)  This may include a physical purging of things taking up space in your home… might be a good time to have a garage sale or donate your unwanted goods to a charity/thrift store. It can also bring about questioning your self-worth… maybe you don’t charge enough for your goods and services. Maybe you don’t accept praise without doubt.  Whatever is holding you back is getting chucked; just do it!

As we pour the elixir of our hearts into these carefully crafted jars, with our carefully crafted intentions, let as pray to the spirits of the earth to give thanks for their elated co creation.

 

Oh Divine Mother of Earth, and all of her children, may we blissfully dance upon your sacred ground as we cultivate our magically crafted movements through this realm, and the ethereal. Giving deep thanks to all that you offer us, in love and unconditional support. As your blood flows through our veins, gifting us the keepers of divine wisdom, magic, and creation. Let us thank you for blessing us with this life of abundance, deep connectedness to all things. Of beauty,  and magic! 

 

We now offer our lovingly crafted potion in honor of all of our blessings, and our duty as Witches to healing the bridge between this world, and the ethereal. May we honor you by digging deep to embody our Divinity. We are the keepers, guardians, and healers of this sacred ground, and the eternal abyss. As above, so below. As within, So without. And so it is! Blessed Be!
 

Potions are used for many reasons, healing, expanding your consciousness, lucid dreaming, glamor etc.
 

Using plants as medicine and magical tools has been used in many cultures for centuries. It is one of my favorite tools, and I love to get really creative with it. As an Aries/ Taurus cusp/ Capricorn moon, I thoroughly enjoy incorporating glamor and sensual magic into my craft. I desire very much to embody my Divinity as much as one possibly can. Today, I’m going to share with you an oil that I created as a body fragrance, and enchanted it myself with the intention to enhance my expression, or as I like to call it, the aesthetic of my Higher Self. Utilizing the senses to fully embody my Soul’s expression.  To be more attractive to all that serves my highest good. So that being said, we all have our own unique expression. What smells good on me, may not smell good on you because of pheromones, lifestyle etc. I prefer warm, rich, musky smells. To create a sacred space of home on my body. So think of what makes you feel at home, comfortable, say, yet attractive and empowered. Utilizing the sense of smell to evoke these emotions to embody your magic in your daily life.

So in the nature of embodying my practice, I like to make a ritual out of it so that I may fully tap into what Spirit is trying to express through me.
 
To start you will need incense & candles:
  • Sandalwood
  • Frankincense and Myrrh
  • Dragon’s Blood
    • I always use Nature Nature Pure Resin Incense religiously. It is great quality and burns slowly.
  • 3 white candles & 2 black

Next I use my favorite crystals that I always work with. I use them to evoke the Goddess as my higher self. Of course you can ask whatever Spirits, Angels, Guides, Deities you work with. Whomever you feel comfortable with. I assume that we all have specific stones we work with, and guides etc.

 

Crystals:
  • Garnet
  • Lapis Lazuli
  • Black Obsidian
  • Quarts
  • Amethyst pendulum
I gather all of these around me, with the incense and candles to cast a circle.

Now you will need these essential oils to create my
*Sacred Feminine Potion*
 
  • A pretty bottle of your choice
    • I use a blue glass bottle, you can buy a set of them on Amazon for $13
  • Sandalwood
  • Jasmine
  • Rose
  • Lavender
  • Vetiver
  • Frankincense & Myrrh
  • Dragon’s Blood 
  • Jojoba Oil (as filler)
Now spin the pendulum over it clockwise projecting my consciousness and intention into the bottle. To generate an enchantment over the potion. I tell my pendulum to keep spinning until the potion is fully charged.

 

Once the pendulum stops, pause and sit in gratitude.

Why I Always Romanticized the Word “Tragic”

I remember being 13 and wanting to be miserable.  You know the saying, “misery loves company”?  Misery loves familiarity. And romanticizing tragedy was so aligned with my state at that time.
