Faeries Siren Song )O(

la cat

Merry meet all,

I want to post about our winged friends. No I don’t mean screeching jays or cooing chickadees. I am talking about the fae, the faeries, our unseen allies. Or so we think. I’m a brave enough adult to dare to believe in the existence of faeries but I also know well enough when to invoke them, honor them and be careful of them.

Faeries can help us in our homes and gardens. They can protect the home and magically guard a home, help plants grow in the garden and protect it, and keep worse nasty spirits away. But where I come from, they can also enchant you to steal you away to leave you to your death!

I believe that Pleasant Bay is highly populated with the fae and spirits. The tiny fishing village where I set my novel and where I grew up is faery territory. They frolic and flit and send out siren songs to lure you to your fate. Their siren song is sung and the people who can hear them are most likely more clairvoyant.

I have strolled through the woods, the nature trails, and hiked on the mountains. As I walked, I saw flashing spots of light and felt their presence. It feels like you’re being watched but you look and nothing is there. You swear your hear giggles but again, nothing’s there. You feel an unusual need to take a certain direction on a walk through the trees but you can’t understand why you wanted to do that. That is what I mean by faeries. They choose to show themselves to you, its not the other way around. They prefer those who are faery friendly and want to help protect the environment.

But its not without its dangers. The siren songs are heard by those who possess the ability to. However, they can confuse those who are weary and unwary. A cliff presents its dangers and small ponds or lakes. Harbours are another hunting ground for faeries. They say the fae were originally blood drinkers. It is possible, I haven’t researched that enough yet. But while I am not sure they sing that siren song, I believe that they do.

Never thank a faery and never linger in their fae world for too long. Never take their food or drink or you will never return to the mortal world. Their time is different than ours. Their logic is different than ours.

Don’t turn your back on the ocean, don’t gaze into the ocean waves too long and don’t get lost on highways. I am sure some of this goes without saying. But if you don’t believe me, then go to the harbor on a foggy night and see for yourself if you are not entranced by the moody misty waves. I have been and know when to enjoy that sensual experience of waves rolling but know when to turn away and go home.

But for those who can and do sense faeries, then embrace your gift. It is a magical and should be treasured gift to sense the faeries. They don’t let themselves be known by just anyone. You must be special. You may just have a brownie or house goblin lurking within the walls of your home. Hint: They like older houses. Leave an offering of pretty silver trinkets, or milk, honey and cookies for them. And never stop believing in magick!!!

Blessings, Lady Spiderwitch )O(

How to grow a lunar garden

Eagle

Merry meet all,

Grow a lunar garden in your yard for some awesome lunar esbat energy. You can grow plants and flowers that bloom at night. Some plants are white and silver reflecting the moon’s colour and energy. Plant them in a crescent-shaped or sickle shaped design to mimic the moon’s phases,

  • Moonflower opens at night to blossom. Moonflower reveals a lemony scent when it blooms. The flowers are six inches in diameter. 
  • Evening Primrose is a great ground cover plant and spreads rapidly. The plant opens at night and release a sweet aroma
  • Evening stock
  • Night phlox
  • Angel’s trumpet
  • Night gladiolus 

Day Blooming Silver and White plants

  • Dusty Millers
  • Silver thyme
  • Lamb’s Ears( I have this in my garden)
  • mugwort (aids in psychic workings)
  • white vegetables 

Herbs and flowers with lunar connections

  • Camphor
  • Eucalyptus
  • Gardenia
  • Jasmine
  • Moonwort
  • Sandalwood
  • Willow
  • Water Lily
  • Sleepwort

When your lunar plants have blossomed and grown, the possibilities on how to use them in lunar magick are endless. You can arrange them around your lunar charged candles, in teas and incenses. Grow the moonflower near a window to enjoy the scent at night as you sleep or practice a lunar esbat! 

The moon shines over my apartment and garden at night. My plants are blessed with the magickal moon energy. Last night, I performed a lunar esbat and knew my garden was being drenched in July’s first full moon power.

Blessings, Lady Spiderwitch )O(
