Freya's Day - Venus Day - the Day of Sharing and Relationship... This Freya's Day is a quiet regarding the flow of magickal energies. While this is a day of relationships - and the moon is in the sign of Taurus, it could be a sensual day. So scent yourself with Apple essential oil or Lilac or Rose geranium or Vanilla and see what it draws your way or create the Attraction Potpourri from the recipe below and carry it on you in a small sachet bag. Eat an apple, set out a Rose quartz or a piece of Amber and place a rose bud in a small vase. Fridays classically are days for love, fertility, romance, and beauty magick, as well as working for happiness, harmony in the home, and friendship.
[From Ellen Dugan's "Book of Witchery"]
* 1 organza favor bag in pink or red
* Fresh red rose petals
* Violet blossoms or leaves
* A crumbled head of dried yarrow flowers (yarrow is an all-purpose herb)
* 1-small rose quartz stone for attraction and warmth
* 1 drop of rose geranium oil
* 1 cotton ball
* A clean dropper
Stuff the little bag full of rose petals. Put one drop of the oil on top of the cotton ball and tuck it down inside of the herb mixture. Put the rest of the herbal components on top. Add the Rose Quartz stone to the mixture, then tie the bag closed, knot it three times, and say the following verse while tying the knots:
"By the magick power of three times three
I enchant this sachet for love and beauty."
Hold the sachet in the palms of your hands. Lean close and take a whiff of the fragrance. Visualize a bright pink energy radiating from the sachet bag. Now repeat the spell verse:
"Fresh red rose petals for love and to boost attraction
Rose geranium oil to encourage affection
Witch's herbs bind the magick and keep it true
A rosy quartz will bring warmth and kindness too
The strongest magick does indeed come from the heart
This spell is sealed by a rhyme and a Witch's art."
Give the sachet bag a little shake and you are good to go. Keep it with you, in your pocket or purse, for one month. You may then either refresh the charm or return the herbal ingredients to nature and dispose of the cotton ball. When finished with this spell, wash the organza sachet bag out by hand and allow it to air-dry. This way, you may reuse the organza bag another time.
