We are in the midst of the harvest season, which is a perfect time to work on magick for prosperity and abundance.
You can use this spell at any time, but it is especially nice if you can do it either at noon in a patch of sunshine or under a full moon.
Take a pretty bowl and fill it with fresh fruits and/or vegetables. Make sure they are practically spilling out to represent the abundance of the season.
Place your hands around the sides of the bowl and feel the energy of your prosperity running through you.
Send out thanks and appreciation for the bounty in whichever ways you need the most.
Then say :
Gods of the harvest, abundant and overflowing.
Allow it into my life, in whichever ways are best for me.
Grant me prosperity, in any and all forms.
So mote it be.
By André Pervukhin

Do y'all see a correlation between opening yourself up more spiritually, and then truly wild ass random dreams?
2 cups flour
2 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup minced crystalized or dehydrated ginger.
A dash of cinnamon
4 tbsp butter
¾ cup Milk
1 tbsp sour cream
Preheat oven to 400°
Mix dry ingredients
Cut in butter (can be mixed with a food processor for easy incorporation) until it is a crumble
Add ginger and mix
Put sour cream in and then add milk to make ¾ cup (the ¾ cup is sour cream and milk combined) add to dry mixture.
Mix until just combined
Flour a surface and knead the dough on it for 30 seconds, roll it out and cut into desired shape
Place on lightly oiled pan and bake for 15 minutes
Half way through you can sprinkle on coarse sugar if desired (you may want to spray on oil first so it sticks).
Let cool and enjoy.
Ginger has a variety of uses, it promotes Love, energy, monetary success, and healing. While the Cinnamon has the same, plus protection and psychic awareness. You can make these as an energy boost spell, or as a love boost. Depending on your desires, possibly choose the shape to correspond with your intentions.
Happy Cooking and Casting!

Today I did a weird thing.
I cleaned the house. I took a shower. I then cleansed the house with sage and then burned some cedar for protections. And I started making food. I then set aside a dish at my altar for my ancestors, spirit guides and other beings I may not know or understand. I gave them a scoop of food, a bit of sparkling cider, and lit some candles and invited them to eat with me.
Afterwords, I burned some Joss cash for my ancestors who probably struggled for money like I do. The others I offered tobacco and seeds I harvested from my garden.
When I was done, I took the plate and cider to a tree, offered it to other spirit guides with more tobacco.
It was lonely and weird. I kept remembering those times I invited people over for dinner, and I went all out...and they never showed up. Like not even a text to let me know something came up, so I just end up eating alone surrounded by empty plates and enough food to fill all of them at least twice. It reminds me of birthday parties no one showed up to, it reminds me of making everyone a valentine in elementary school, but not getting many in return. It reminds me of waiting for my dad to show up for school functions and never seeing him.
Lonely isn't a strong enough word for it.
is anyone still active on here pls interact..! ill follow u i miss tumblr sm im so bored fhdhsnsjn this is the only platform i don’t hate

I think this has been said before, but the most effective devotional acts for your god(s) is taking care of yourself. Your deities want what’s best for you before even offerings. I’ve found that I feel a stronger connection with my deities after I’ve taken care of myself (showered, brushed my teeth, drank water, journaled, etc.) than I do when I give them offerings when I haven’t. You can’t devote time to another person/ being when you’re not devoting time to yourself.
I’ve also found that this really helps with my mental health issues. Due to a combination of them, I have very little motivation to do basic stuff like my homework, keeping myself clean, or even taking my medicine. Devoting these acts to deities rather than just doing them for myself makes it way easier for me to get enough motivation to do them.
I seriously can’t recommend this enough. If you are a pagan with mental health problems and you have god(s) or spirit guides or anything you devote actions to, I highly suggest you do these acts for them if you can’t do them for yourself.
Another thing: working with certain deities who are the patrons of things that you need help with is a good idea too, if you feel up to it. For example, if you need help with self-love or even relationship help, Aphrodite might be able to help you, or if you want help being more independent, working with Artemis might be a good idea for you.
Those are some very basic tips, but I figured it might help some of you who struggle like I do :)

I did a tarot reading with Hermes the other day asking how I could get closer to him since I’ve been trying to get back into everyday worship and stuff, and his response was basically just telling me to focus on bettering my mental health, but it’s like, come on, can’t I just give you offerings everyday or smth? That would be significantly easier
(it was a past, present, future reading and the cards were The High Priestess, Two of Pentacles, and Eight of Swords if you were wondering)
Day 8: Find how your god has manifested in other religions than the one you are currently focused on. How have other cultures interpreted their energy?
Hermes' energy haven't been complety interpretated as other gods in the Greek Pantheon by other cultures because Hermes has too many aspects. So, I'll introduce you some gods and a curious character that vibe with some of Hermes works...
Nabu (at the top to the left): He's a god from Babilonian culture. The relation most of people observe with Hermes is about the writing. Nabu writes destiny, after all he is recognized as a literacy god and patron of scribes (also wisdom).
Odin (at the left but below): Odin is a Norse god of wisdom, magic, poetry and he has a connection with war-death. Why do people can relate with Hermes energy? Well, besides of magic, death and poetry, Odin is a traveler god and he shows this "humanistic" nature; they're between us.
Hermod (in the middle at the top): Another Norse god. In this case, there's a curious myth where he is sent by the Æsir to go through Helheim to take back Baldr to Asgard. People link him with Hermes because of the ease to travel to the death's world.
Hermes Trimegistus (in the middle of the picture): Not a god but a character origined by the syncretism of Hermes and Thot. For a long time, there was/is the belief Hermes Trimegistus existed but there are theories that he's just a fictional character in history because some people wanted to save alchemic literature and another kind of philosophy. This character develop a philosophical system called hermeticism. It's kinda critizice by some people, but I recomend if you're interested in magic or witchcraft to check out. Hermes energy in this character is very obvious besides the name, it's because you must decode images and texts to understand something, like another kind of translation.
Anubis (in the middle but below): An Egyptian god of death, embalbing and afterlife. Greeks related him to Hermes because both have a connection with death. There's a point in the history were both cultures syncretize and formed Hermanubis.
Thot (in the top at the right): Another Egyptian god, a god of wisdom, magic, writing and who judges the dead. This is a notorious link, because he shares many aspects of Hermes. Reason why Egyptians and Greeks assimilate both deities creating Hermes Trimegistus.
Yacatecuhtli (at the right but below): I know Aztecs are another culture and very far away from the others I told, but it was curious to me to find out he's an Aztec god of commerce and travels.
⭐ There's an honorifical mention I wanted to share too but I didn't add it in the picture because I didn't find any photos of this other Aztec god called Coccochímetl, a commerce god but of the bargain and exchange too.
That's everything for today, @4res. Hope you like it!!! I was thinking so much in other deities similar to Hermes, it was hard 😅
P. S. If there are some points where the information is wrong, you can tell me :)
