  • Associated with healing, green connects us to unconditional love.

  • Green is associated with growth, finances and abundance.

  • Green takes up more space in the spectrum visible to the human eye and is the dominant colour. We see it all around us.

  • Related to nature, compassion and harmony, green has a soothing and relaxing effect on the mind and body.

  • Different shades of green have different meanings. For example, dark green represents ambition and wealth whereas olive green is the traditional colour of peace.

Jasper is a stone of gentleness and relaxation. It enhances one’s ability to relax and bring tranquility, comfort, wholeness, healing and gentle endings. It is called the “nurturing stone” for its soothing and protective energies.

Jasper is composed mostly of chalcedony, microcrystalline quartz, in association with other minerals, which gives it colourful bands and patterns. An elemental Earth stone, Jasper’s frequency is slow and constant, aligned with the electromagnetic energies of the planet. It enables one to be more present in the physical body and conscious of Nature and one’s surroundings.

Apple Magic

In keeping with the spirit of pagan practices, apples are often used as an offering to the Goddess. When cut horizontally, the seed cavity in apples reveals a pentacle which represents the elements of earth, fire, air, water as well as the energy of spirit. The ancient magic of apples can bring fortune, abundance and happiness.

  • Apples bring good luck if placed in a basket on the dining room table. They will help bring dreams to fruition.

  • Peel three apples and add the peels to your bath water. As you soak, think of love and forgiveness.

  • Keep the seeds of every apple you eat in a month. At the end of the month, count the seeds and this will show you the number of days you will have to wait for your luck to change.

  • Keep an apple on your desk and change it every seven days. It brings peace and understanding to what you do in your business.

  • Green apples placed with red apples open financial pathways.

  • If you want to attract love, sprinkle cinnamon on your apples.

A Ritual for Creating Money/Abundance


Sit cross legged on the floor or find a position that is comfortable.

Burn incense such as jasmine or patchouli.

Wrap a quarter in an orange piece of paper (orange is the colour of attraction).

Set it on the floor in front of you.

Stand two green candles on each side of the money and light them.

Concentrate on the wrapped silver coin and in your mind’s eye, see the silver multiplying. See it piling up one coin on top of the other.

Sit for a few minutes and concentrate further on the money multiplying.

Repeat this incantation three times…

“At the red of the moon may the money be good”

Blow out the candles - first the left and then the right.

Repeat this ritual every Thursday for three weeks.
