OK...it's been dryer than Hades here this spring...and wild fires are burning UP Texas...so we decided to collectively do some Weather Magick, and a rain spell. In direct association I decided to create a Rain Hex, utilizing the techniques from my friends and fellow volk Swanhild Hexenfrau and her husband Der Waldzauberer, along with some inspiration from a Hex by Swanhild and Hexenmeister Lee Gandee, combining elements from two of their hexes: an Earth Star hex by Swan and Gandee's Rain that Refreshes the Soul...
What I came up with is a Hex that I call Rain that Refeshes the Earth...then I washed it with an infusion of herbs I blended into rain water which were as follows:
one vanilla bean,
from a HedgeWitch recipe...

OK...was doing some reading today...and discovered this obscure treaties on the Evocation of a Goetic spirit into a crystal ball, Johannes Trithemius: The art of drawing spirits into crystals with very elaborate details on the circle on in which the crystal sits...I took the instructions with some assistance from Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (Liber officiorum spirituum) and created a Hex on which to sit the crystal...I would like to do a full evocational ritual...and try and make a Goetic Spirit appear in the crystal...specially...Morax, an Earl, who is associated with Nelakhiel from the 72 angels [Scorpio] and with Tiphareth via the StarCircle...
Morax, alias Foraii, a great earle and a president, he is seene like a bull, and if he take unto him a mans face, he maketh men wonderfull cunning in astronomie, & in all the liberall sciences: he giveth good familiars and wise, knowing the power & vertue of hearbs and stones which are pretious, and ruleth thirtie six legions.
Goetia - S. L. MacGregor Mathers (1904) (quoted)
The Twenty-first Spirit is Marax. He is a Great Earl and President. He appeareth like a great Bull with a Man's face. His office is to make Men very knowing in Astronomy, and all other Liberal Sciences; also he can give good Familiars, and wise, knowing the virtues of Herbs and Stones which be precious. He governeth 30 Legions of Spirits, and his Seal is this, which must be made and worn as aforesaid, etc

ok...made the two candles that I will use in the Healing rituals I have been asked to do...used the Elemental color, with flashing colors from the Golden Dawn...yep...that's right good old Bastard that I am...stealing and blending traditions! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!
anyway...used the Flashing color scheme...which has been very successful for me in the past...so will continue to do so...
the following from Making Talismans by Nick Farrell
and I chose to use Black with White...
OK...working on the Healing process involved in Hexeri and Pow Wow...I have come up with a process.
Building on the Pow Wow chart of Astrological Healing energies from the old 'Human Illustration' passed among Hexenmeisters/Pow Wow people...
I build on the Base color-Elemental, FIRE-Red, AIR-Yellow, EARTH-Green/Brown or Black, WATER-Blue...
In the center of the Hex, I draw the Planetary Square, then the 3 angelick names around it, In ENGLISH, the Elemental Angel, the Planetary Angel, and the Astrological Angel.
then the Planetary energies, draw the sigils of the Planetary Angelick energies, & the Olympic Planetary Spirits, as well as the Elemental sign, the Planetary Sign & Seal, and the Astrological sign at the top. The Hex is then surrounded by two planetary series of sigils, one from the Grimoire Le Veritable Dragon Rouge, and the other from Key of Solomon...
The color scheme comes from the Picatrix, which is as follows:
EARTH-Green, Brown or Black
