Reading The Leaves Cover
Now the seer receives the cup from the sitter and proceeds to tell his or her fortune, unless of course one is to tell one's own fortune. The seer should concentrate upon the cup and upon the consultant. The seer will observe that the tea leaves are scattered over the cup in apparent confusion but it will be noted after concentration that they form lines, circles, dots, small groups and figures.

Note carefully the shapes and figures assumed by the leaves. Turn the cup and view from different angles until the symbols become clear. Be patient and search carefully for symbols and not their position. The more you search the clearer they become. Note the resemblance to various objects, and their relation to each other. Sometimes bad omens will be offset by good ones; good ones may be strengthened or weakened by others, good or evil, and so on.

"The tea cup reveals good fortune (1,4,5) for you. I see a lover (3) and much success. I see the letter "L"- perhaps his name begins with "L" but you have not met him yet because he seems to be in the future - not far distant perhaps but not in the present. I see success is about to crown some venture you have undertaken or are about to undertake. But there seems to be difficulties closing in upon (2) you in the near future".

"Fear not in this tea cup good fortune more than outweighs the bad. I see a marriage, possibly you own (4) or a friend's. It seems certain that this good fortune that is coming will be most unexpected".

Such objects as cats, trees, flowers, letters, numbers, etc., will be discerned by the exercise of the "seer's" observation and imagination. Possibly these may be unconsciously strengthened by a keen intuition. Each symbol possesses some significance. They may be large or small and their size may determine their relative importance. For instance: if the likeness of a "Septre" should be observed it would mean that the sitter should expect some honor bestowed upon him or her. If the symbol were small, the honor received would be small and if the symbol were large, the honor might be great.

Then again: a few tea leaves may form a group that might in turn form a letter such as "M". If this letter "M" should be close to a symbol resembling a "serpent" which is bad luck, it might mean that the "sitter" should guard against an enemy whose name begins with "M". If on the other hand the letter "M" should appear near a symbol of a bird flying towards the handle of the cup (the "residence") it might mean that the sitter would receive a letter from, or news of, a person whose name begins with "M". If on the other hand the letter "M" should appear near a symbol of a bird flying towards the handle of the cup (the "residence") it might mean that the sitter would receive a letter from, or news of, a person whose name begins with "M". Again: If the bird were flying away from the "residence", the sitter would be sending a letter to the person "M".

The small tealeaves frequently form lines. A line means a journey, a long line a long journey, etc. The direction of the journey may be determined by the direction of the line. If a line should approach and reach the handle and the sitter should be away from home it would mean that he or she would return. If the line should end before it reaches the handle it would mean that the "sitter" would move to another residence. A wavy or broken line means delayed journeys and straight-line quick journeys. If a number such as "6" should be observed it would mean a journey of six days or six weeks; or possibly a journey to be taken in six weeks, etc., etc.

Dots surrounding a symbol indicate money in some form depending on the symbol. Should a leaf cling to the edge or rim of the cup some event foretold by the symbols in the cup is imminent. Someone may be thinking of the "sitter" at the very moment. Look for a letter to find a clue to the identity of this person.

Observe the complete picture as a whole as well as individual symbols for often-bad omens may outweigh good omens or vice versa. One large distinct good omen may outweigh several smaller hazy bad omens. Good and bad should be balanced against each other in determining the forecast.

If mysteries should be revealed to you, question them if you will, but cherish and keep the Gypsy's secret.

Moon Vow For Weight Loss Cover
When the moon shows cold and slender
Stand beneath her starved light
Wearing only white and silver
Say, to whet her appetite
I make my vow to fast
Until this crescent moon shines round and full
While she waxes, let me want
I must lose, that she may gain
While she grows, take silver wine
Silver wine, silver milk
And bread like snow or linen fine
And fish as clear as ice or silk
But only these and less of all
Than you would wish to feed her well.

Catnip Insect Repellent Cover
* Take sensible precautions in using any mosquito repellent. Many experienced outdoor people suggest putting insect repellent on clothing. The repellent lasts longer and is not washed away by sweat. Test the repellent on a small area of clothing to be sure it does not stain. If you do use it on skin, test a small area such as inside an elbow to see if your skin has an allergic reaction. Always apply sparingly, especially on young children.

* Grow catnip plants in your garden or indoor planter. Take off a leafy stalk, crush the leaves and rub them on skin or clothing. Wear catnip leaves crushed in a handkerchief or bandanna around your neck. If you are not sensitive to catnip, try rubbing a fresh catnip leaf on pulse spots such as behind ears, inside elbows and wrists, behind knees and at ankles.

* Chop a handful of fresh catnip leaves and stems in a food processor. Put the chopped catnip in a pot. Pour 2 cups boiling water over the catnip and let it steep like tea. Strain the leaves out and refrigerate the liquid. Pour it into a spray bottle. Spray on clothing just before going outdoors.

* Use catnip oil to make a spray. Mix about a half-teaspoon of essential oil of catnip with 1 cup isopropyl alcohol and 1 cup water. Shake well and spray lightly on clothing, arms and legs. Do not use on children, pets or people sensitive to catnip.

* Brew a catnip and vinegar spritz. Crush 2 cups catnip leaves and add to 3 cups white or rice vinegar in a quart jar. Seal and store in dark cupboard. Shake every day for 2 weeks. Strain mixture into clean jar and refrigerate. Use as a light spritz on clothes, arms or legs. Some say the vinegar keeps the mosquitoes away, other say the catnip does the work.

* Gather 2 cups catnip and 1 cup rosemary leaves. Crush the leaves by using a rolling pin or scrunching them with your hands. Put the leaves in a clean jar and cover with 2 cups unscented body care oil or vegetable glycerin. Store in a cool dark cupboard for 2 weeks. Shake the jar lightly every day. After 2 weeks, strain out the leaves and pour the oil into a clean jar. Refrigerate and use the catnip body oil as needed.

Color Healing Meditation Cover
Healing with color requires a basic understanding of the specific function of a particular color. Of course, the list below is quite simple, revealing mostly primary colors, but it's a great starting point.

WHITE: Purification, stabilizing, the all purpose color. Use this color when you are not sure which color to use. It is beneficial to all systems in the body.

BLACK: Grounding, protection. Black gets a bad rap. Black is actually a protective color. Avoid using too much of this color as it could bring on depression. This color is never used alone, but with a combination of colors.

GREEN: General healing, growth. Green helps to restore balance and equilibrium. Used for circulatory system, emotional conditions, and conditions related to the heart chakra. Do not use this color for cancerous or tumor-like conditions since green is a color of growth.

RED: Stimulating, strengthening, warming. Used for circulatory system, sexuality, anemia, stimulating the over all energy of the metabolism, and for most blood conditions. Do not use red in cases of hypertension or if bleeding is a problem.

BLUE: Blue acts as an antiseptic and cooling agent, and enhances the natural flow of energy. Excellent for inflammations including those of internal organs, also good for cuts and burns. Cooling, calming, cleansing, restructuring. Used for respiratory, eyes, ears, nose, asthma, high blood pressure.

YELLOW: Awakening, mental stimulation, used for most conditions related to the solar plex chakra, especially the digestive system, stomach, intestines, adrenal function, and bladder. Yellow enriches, stimulates, lightens and activates many of the systems of the body. It tends to encourage orderliness and clarity. It can act as a mild sedative to relieve many fears and give a mental uplift. Gradual and consistent exposure to yellow light decreases blood pressure and heart rate and increases energy and endurance.

ORANGE: Activating, constructing. Orange creates balance. In times of stress, or after a shock or a surprise, orange can help the body to return to a state of balance. Used for spleen, pancreas, stomach, food assimilation, eliminative system, and most conditions related to the naval chakra.

INDIGO: Purification. Used for endocrine system, lymph system, immune system, blood purifier, conditions of the ears, nose, throat. In a depressed state, indigo is to be avoided as it can easily deepen the mood. Indigo is a slight narcotic removing fears and reassures those afraid of the dark. Good for emotional problems, deafness, and especially good for the eyes, even cataracts.

VIOLET: Violet is the door to the unseen. Exposure to violet light is good for emotional problems, rheumatism, epilepsy, reducing pain, deep tissue work, and bones. Purification, cleansing. Used for skeletal system, nervous system, balancing of physical and spiritual energies.

PINK: Soothing, nurturing. Used for the immune system, thymus gland, skin conditions, inflammation, and helping to soothe emotional disturbances.

GOLD: Restructuring, strengthening. Used for cardiac system, the entire immune system.


Choose the color you feel is most appropriate for your needs.

For this meditation either sit in a chair or stand. Imagine an egg shaped bubble around you.Breathe in deeply from your nose imagining that color entering your feet and filling your entire body. When you exhale image the color exiting your body into your visualized egg shaped bubble. Continue to do this until the egg shaped bubble is filled with the color.

When you are complete take a few moments to come back into the room.


* If you can find a light bulb in your color of choice, you can bathe yourself and the room with color. If no light bulb is available, consider putting colored cellaphane over the window. Use your imagination and creativity.

* Find a piece of cloth, paper, or other object in the required color. Spend time before the meditation staring at it, taking in the color.

* Wear clothing, or cover yourself with a blanket or sheet that is the color you've chosen. Alternatively, you could wrap ribbon or yarn around your wrists.

* Drink water that has been charged with the color: Fill a glass bottle with water, wrap it with colored tissue paper or cellaphane and set it in the sun for several hours.

* After the meditation, eat some food of the same color. For example: Green beans, Red cherries, Purple plums, Blue berries...


For best results, the meditation should be repeated twice a day until the symptoms begin to subside. After that, you can gradually taper off - paying attention to your body's response.

If you feel that you have taken in too much of one color, you can easily balance yourself with a meditation on green, and/or black and white.

Hoodoo Incense Cover
Spiritual incense has a long tradition of use in hoodoo. Incense can be burned during altar work and prayer as well as while spell casting. It can be burned on its own to spiritually cleanse of clear a room of negative energy or bad spirits.

The most common types of incense that root doctors prescribe for their clients are natural tree resin and dried herb incenses to be burned on charcoal and compounded self-lighting incense powders that contain spiritually powerful herbs, roots, and essential oils in a wood-powder base. Additionally, hoodoo practitioners may also work with and prescribe Indian stick incense, Asian coil incense, or Native American herbal smudge incense, according to their own inclinations.

Loose powder incense -- also known as condition incense because each formula is named for the condition which it is intended to address -- is composed of five elements. These are the base, which is finely ground wood powder; a colouring agent or dye; the scent, which comes from essential oils; s selected blend of magical herbs, roots, and minerals; and a chemical agent that helps the wood powder to smoulder without bursting into flame. In a well-made powder incense, every one of the the five elements -- and most especially the colour, scent, and natural herbal component -- is selected with knowledge of hoodoo herb and root magic.

Compounded self-lighting powder incenses may be custom blended by a rootworker for a client, but it is usually purchased from a reputable spiritual supply manufacturer and prescribed to the client. No matter what form of incense a conjure practitioner puts together or prescribe, the ingredients are selected with reference to the client's personal needs, whether for love-drawing, reconciliation, money-drawing, spiritual protection, court case and legal matters, or aggressive work against an enemy.

To burn self-lighting incense powders, you may use a small candle snuffer as a cone-shaper. Scoop out and pack the powder tightly into the snuffer, then invert it over a heatproof surface and light it. Another old-type method is to form a cone-shaper by cutting a small piece of paper into a half-circle shape, then rolling the paper into a cone, packing it with incense, and turning it upside down on a heatproof surface; the paper will unroll as you let it go, and you can easily pull it off the freshly-made cone of incense powder.

In addition to being burned to suffumigate, cense, or “smoke” a room, a person, a petition paper, or a mojo bag, loose powder incense is a traditional part of the stuffing that goes into many a doll baby, it can be scattered and swept up as a quick-fix floor sprinkle to cleanse a room;, and it may be dusted onto oiled candles to fix them for use.
