Jessica Galbreths Myth and Magick 2010 Calendar

Jessica Galbreth's Myth and Magick 2010 Calendar

My posting to this blog has been slow recently. I would like to think there has been good reason.1] Ravenhawks’ Academy of Magick and Mysticism, and 2]”the store”. The academy has seen an upsurge in active students, YAY!!! And the store has had some additions; we have added new products including the 2010 calendars. We have also decided that in sympathy with the current financial market, we would offer a 10% discount on total orders from the store everyday. Also new, layaway is now available and you may checkout with either Google or Amazon… We are adding new items to the store daily, now we have over 300 items available currently. Hopefully this will help with your everyday shopping need as well as Yule gifting needs.
We have also had to re-do the forums lost a great deal of wonderful comments and info. However the forums are up and running so please feel free to check them out and leave your questions, thoughts, beliefs and comments.

Nov 142009

samhain28This is one of my favorite times of year. It is also the end of the year for those of us who use the Celtic calendar. It is a time to look back and see what you have accomplished, to honor your ancestors both living and deceased. We can decorate by bringing the colors of Samhain to our altars and tables:Black, Brown, Gold, Orange, Red, Silver, and Yellow. Decorate with pumpkins, leaves, acorns, vines,and apples. We will also cook seasonal foods using fruits and vegetables that can be readily found in your garden, farmers market or local supermarket. The interesting thing about using seasonal foods to cook with is that they make it possible to cut your budget and still serve foods that please the palate. Here are a few of the seasonal foods: apples, apple dishes, cider, (this is the meat harvest) especially pork, mulled cider with spices, nuts, pomegranates, potatoes, pumpkins, squash, corn, cranberry, turnips, beets, ale, herbal teas (mugwort). Lets celebrate the third and last harvest of 2009. My goodness this year seems to have passed rather quickly.
Essential Oils for Samhain and Halloween:
Cedar, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Ginger, Lavender, Lime, Mint, Myrrh, Orange, Sage, Sandalwood, Benzoin, Patchouli, Pine, and Melissa.
Scent your area for the season and create a “spooky” attraction by placing a charcoal that is used for burning incense in a fire proof container, [cauldron, bowl] light the charcoal and drop a few drop of your favorite oil on the hot charcoal for a billow of aromatic smoke.
Scented Candles play a big part in adding ambiance and flair to the season.
