Ingredients: Orange juice, kitchen matches, paring knife, coriander seeds, white taper candle.

Serve your man a glass of chilled orange juice each morning to purify and tone down an out-of-control sex drive. As he heads out the door, stash some coriander seeds in his pockets. Coriander is known to ensure fidelity. Kiss him and wave goodbye seductively, then take a kitchen match, strike it on the heel of your shoe and whisper: "Be true." In your bedroom, light a white taper candle into which you have carved both your initials with a paring knife.



Forasmuch as N. and N. have consented together in holy wedlock, and have witnessed the same before God and this company, and thereto have given and pledged their troth, each to the other, and have declared the same by giving and receiving a Ring, and by joining hands; I pronounce that they are Man and Wife, In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.  Amen.


Excellent rite for driving out daimons:

Formula to be spoken over his head:  Place olive branches before him, and stand behind him and say: "Hail, God of Abraham; hail, God of Isaac; hail, God of Jacob; Jesus Chrestos, the Holy Spirit, the Son of the Father, who is above the Seven, who is within the Seven.  Bring Iao Sabaoth; may your power issue forth from him, NN, until you drive away this unclean daimon Satan, who is in him.  I conjure you, daimon, whosoever you are, by this god, SABARBARBATHIOTH SABARBARBATHIOUTH SABARBARBATHIONETH SABARBARBAPHAI.  Come out, daimon, whoever you are, and stay away from him, NN, now, now, immediately, immediately.  Come out, daimon, since I bind you with unbreakable adamantine fetters, and I deliver you into the black chaos in perdition.

Preparation: take seven olive branches; for six of them tie together the two ends of each one, but for the remaining one use it like a whip as you utter the conjuration.  Keep it secret; it is proven.


Inscribed on a lead tablet to the oracle of Zeus and Dione at Dodona:  Nicocrateia would like to know to what god she ought to sacrifice in order to get well and feel better and make her illness go away.


43.=88. Preparation of smaragdos

Mix and put together in a small jar a drachma of copper green [malachite or verdigris],  a drachma of Armenian blue [Dioskourides 5.90: probably azurite], a cup of the urine of a virgin youth, and two-thirds of the fluid of a steer’s gall. Insert stones each weighing about an obol. Lay the cover upon the pot, lute the cover all around with clay, and heat it for six hours with a gentle fire of olive wood. But if this sign appears, that the cover becomes green, then heat no more, but cool off and take the stones out. Thus you will find that they have become emeralds. (The stones are of crystal; all crystal, however, changes its color by boiling.)



For example let sun and Aphrodite be in Water-Pourer, moon and Zeus at the beginning of Ram, Kronos in Ram, Ares in Archer, Hermes in Goat-Horn, Horoskopos in Scorpion, Lot of Fortune in Scales, clima 6 [i.e. 17 February 173]. The apportioning stars were: Aphrodite because of Scales [where the Lot of Fortune is and a house of Aphrodite], Kronos because Aphrodite was in Water-Pourer [a house of Kronos], Ares because Kronos was in Ram [a house of Ares]. Then I reckoned with respect to periods and to rising times: first hours, then days, then months. Thus: I took for Scales 8 days and 8 hours and again for the rising time of Scales, clima 6, 43 hours, and, since Aphrodite is in Water-Pourer, I took for Kronos 57 hours and again since Kronos is in Ram, I took for Ares 15 hours, summing up to 8 days and 123 hours, which are 5 days 3 hours, making altogether 13 days 3 hours. He lived for 13 days 3 hours.


Consecration:  All glory be to thee, Almighty God, our heavenly Father, for that thou, of thy tender mercies did give thine only Son Jesus Christ to suffer death upon the Cross for our redemption; who made there by his one oblation of himself once offered a full, perfect, and sufficient sacrifice, oblation, and satisfaction, for the sins of the whole world; and did institute, and in his holy Gospel command us to continue, a perpetual memory of that his precious death and sacrifice, until his coming again:  For in the night in which he was betrayed, [Here the Priest is to take the paten into his hands.] he took Bread; and when he had given thanks, [And here to break the Bread.] he brake it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take, eat, [And here to lay his hand upon the Bread.] this is my body, which is given for you;  Do this in remembrance of me.  Likewise, after supper, [Here he is to take the Cup into his hands.] he took the cup; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of this; for [And here he is to lay his hand upon every vessel in which there is any Wine to be consecrated.] this is my Blood of the New Testament, which is shed for you and for many, for the remission of sins; Do this as oft as ye shall drink it, in remembrance of me. 

Oblation:  Wherefore, O Lord and heavenly Father, according to the institution of thy dearly beloved Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, we, thy humble servants, do celebrate and make here before thy Divine Majesty, with these thy holy gifts, which we now offer unto thee, the memorial thy Son hath commanded us to make; having in remembrance his blessed passion and precious death, his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension; rendering unto thee most hearty thanks for the innumerable benefits procured unto us by the same.

Invocation:  And we most humbly beseech thee, O merciful Father, to hear us; and of thy almighty goodness, vouchsafe to bless and sanctify, with thy Word and Holy Spirit, these thy gifts and creatures of bread and wine; that we, receiving them according to thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ's holy institution, in remembrance of his death and passion, may be partakers of his most blessed Body and Blood.


In the wavering firelight Gandalf seemed suddenly to grow: he rose up, a great menacing shape like the monument of some ancient king of stone set upon a hill.  Stooping like a cloud, he lifted a burning branch and strode to meet the wolves.  They gave back before him.  High in the air he tossed the blazing brand.  It flared with a sudden white radiance like lightning; and his voice rolled like thunder.

 "Naur an edraith ammen!  Naur dan i ngaurhoth!" he cried. 

There was a roar and a crackle, and the tree above him burst into a leaf and bloom of blinding flame.  The fire leapt from tree-top to tree-top.  The whole hill was crowned with dazzling light.  The swords and knives of the defenders shone and flickered.  The last arrow of Legolas kindled in the air as it flew, and plunged burning into the heart of a great wolf-chieftain.  All the others fled.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

**** An overview helps others understand what might be happening.  Not everyone sees eye to eye with you.  Use your sense of humor and help another relax.  When confusion exists, be indulgent.  Listen to a pal.  Tonight:  Watch TV.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

**** Deal with others in the most effective way you know.  Allow others to see your multifaceted personality when dealing with a problem.  Though you might not have the right answer, you demonstrate a willingness to seek it.  Tonight:  Be with your best friend.


Request for a dream oracle: Write on a strip of tinfoil, and after crowning the strip of foil with myrtle, set up the censer.  Then make a burnt offering of frankincense and carry the leaf of metal around the vapor while saying: "Lords, gods, reveal to me concerning the NN matter tonight, in the coming hours.  Emphatically I beg, I supplicate, I your servant and enthroned by you."  Then place the piece of foil under your pillow, and, without giving answer to anyone, go to sleep after havng kept yourself pure for 3 days.

"So…" Professor Lupin had taken out his own wand, and indicated that Harry should do the same.  "The spell I am going to try to teach you is highly advanced magic, Harry – well beyond Ordinary Wizarding Level.  It is called the Patronus Charm."

            "How does it work?" said Harry nervously.

            "Well, when it works correctly, it conjures up a Patronus," said Lupin, "which is a kind of anti-dementor – a guardian that acts as a shield between you and the dementor."

            Harry had a sudden vision of himself crouching behind a Hagrid-sized figure holding a large club.  Professor Lupin continued, "The Patronus is a kind of positive force, a projection of the very things that the dementor feeds upon – hope, happiness, the desire to survive – but it cannot feel despair, as real humans can, so the dementors can't hurt it.  But I must warn you, Harry, that the charm might be too advanced for you.  Many qualified wizards have difficulty with it."

            "What does a Patronus look like?" said Harry curiously.

            "Each one is unique to the wizard who conjures it."

            "And how do you conjure it?"

            "With an incantation, which will work only if you are concentrating, with all your might, on a single, very happy memory. […] The incantation is this –" Lupin cleared his throat.  "Expecto patronum!"


On these conditions a sworn agreement was made by those who stayed there and by those who sailed to found the colony [of Cyrene], and they invoked curses against those transgressors who would not abide by it - whether those settling in Libya or those who remained.  They made waxen images and burnt them, calling down the following curse, everyone assembled together, men, women, boys, girls:  "The person who does not abide by this sworn agreement but transgresses it shall melt away and dissolve like these images - himself, his descendants and his property; but those who abide by the sworn agreement - those sailing to Libya and those staying in Thera - shall have an abundance of good things, both themselves and their descendants."  (Marble Stele from Cyrene, dating from 4th century BC)


Ritual, the final step for making a talisman, is one of the most important ingredients, as an actual empowerment of the herbs can then occur through the will or strong intentions of the person transmitting them. The ritual is done to induce a deep meditative or intuitive state where we contact our Source, which is also the Source of the plant. The ritual creates a deep focus of intention, which is then transferred from ourselves to the plant, resulting in a powerful magnet and transmitter of healing properties.

Examples of rituals include lighting a candle, fasting with the plants, meditating, drumming and chanting, reciting prayers, smudging, blowing the breath on the herbs, sprinkling them with some special water from a sacred stream or river, adding a special stone or any other single or combination of ceremonies. Choose whichever rituals will create the alpha consciousness that generates the necessary energy to connect with the Source of Life.


Inscribed on a lead tablet:  Let Pherenikos be bound before Hermes of the underworld and Hekate of the underworld.  I bind Pherenikos' girl Galene to Hermes of the underworld and to Hekate of the underworld I bind her.  And just as this lead is worthless and cold, so let that man and his property be worthless and cold, and those who are with him who have spoken and counseled concerning me.
