I swear I’ll get back on those clow card posts, promise!
Tonight’s the first time in several months that there are clear skies on the night of the full moon, and it’s an eclipse!
Even though I have work early in the morning, I’m totally staying up to watch the moon.
And I finally get to charge all the things! My poor moonstones are practically lifeless.
No, not all of them. I’ve found that the element divisions are similar to the tarot suits. Some of the cards reflect some of the qualities of some of the tarot cards, but I don’t see a one to one correlation.
Mostly, I think tarot cards represent archetypes, and archetypes are bound to be repeated elsewhere, including clow cards
Create a sachet charm to keep in your car and protect you during your travels.
Car accidents are one of the lead causes of deaths in the U.S. Everyone is likely to get into at least a few accidents over the course of their lives. Even the best driver’s can’t control the actions of everyone else on the road. Obviously, this spell won’t make up for good old defensive driving. But it should help protect you from those factors that are beyond your control.
*There are so many plants, flowers, and herbs that are associated with protection, so you can really customize this to whatever you want. But, because this charm will be kept in a small, enclosed space, we want to be mindful of the smell. Garlic and valerian have great protective properties, but will make your car smell unpleasant (to say the least). So, here are some of my suggestions:
This should give you enough options. My sachet contained mint, ash leaves, black salt, rosemary, caraway seeds, and lavender.
Ideally, you could perform this spell in your car, if you have the privacy to do so. I drove to a secluded place down by my local river. Use the incense to do a smoke cleanse of your car and stay focused on the image of protection. Make sure you have your doors/windows open so that the negative vibes have a way to escape (and your car won’t smell too strongly of smoke.) If you like, you can use some phrases to keep you focused: protect the driver, any passengers, help the car run well, etc. If there are any safety features with your car, such as airbags, make sure you focus some energy there too. Don’t forget the steering wheel, tires and under the hood, though avoid directing the smoke to the engine parts, a simple wave overhead should suffice.
Combine the ingredients in your sachet. Stay focused on the intent of each ingredient. If you still have some incense, wave the sachet through the smoke. Keep the charm in your car, preferably some place open, like your cup holder or dash. You could put it in your glove compartment, though it will be closed off from the rest of your car, so the “flow” might be stifled. Also, it is technically illegal to hang things from your mirror, so I can’t advise it.
