"The question of magic is a question of discovering
and employing hitherto unknown forces in Nature."
WHAT ARE CORRESPONDENCES?
Magick is the practice of influencing energy to achieve a given goal. Energy flows through the universe, through
all things, through us. To work a successful spell you must raise energy, focus it and then release this energy
to your intention. Using an item that corresponds with your intention will aid in the success of the spell.
Everything is made up of energy. In spellwork, corresponding energies are directed with intent to gain the
desired effect. A particular herb may have magickal qualities of protection, or a certain planet may have a
particular elemental correspondence. These energy properties influence how they interact with both the
magickal practitioner and the other energies in the Universe.
Aligning the energy of the day, color and herb with your intent increases your results. For example: To work a
spell for love use a pink candle anointed with rose oil on a Friday or to work a spell for prosperity use a green
candle dressed in Bergamot oil on a Thursday.
To get the best results also consider the aspect of the moon and the time of day as well as the other items
you employ (Candles, herbs and oils...)

Harmonizing With the Moon
Do you know what phase the moon is in today? With the busy lifestyles modern people lead it is easy
to lose track, but becoming aware of the moon and its monthly rhythms was the first step that led me
to become more connected with the natural world.
Appropriate timing is very important when working with Magic and Ritual. The goal is to perform a rite
or spell at the time when the forces at work in the natural world complement your intentions.

time to look inward and reflect. Modern astronomical language refers to this period as the new moon
