Ace of Pentacles & Manifestation

International Tarot Day Blog Hop Tarot Pugs Pug TarotPugs

Welcome to our contribution to the celebration of International Tarot Day!

I trust you enjoyed Jillian C. Wilde’s article on Queen of Wands, and now, we’re tackling another challenging Tarot card: Ace of Pentacles.

It’s great to be part of this epic blog hop, organized by Bree at Nym’s Divination. Thanks, Bree!

TarotPugs has been gifted with the opportunity to blog about the Ace of Pentacles, which of itself is the very epitome of a gift in the tarot.

Here we’re going to discuss about the Ace of Pentacles and manifestation, which the Ace of Pentacles seems to say, “ask and you shall receive.”

The Ace of Pentacles in the Rider Waite Smith Tarot has a hand extended from a cloud, holding a gold coin with a pentacle on it. Continue reading

Root Chakra Spell

Root Chakra Spell Witchcraft Magick Magic Witch TarotPugs Tarot Pugs

Sometimes we get bent out of shape emotionally and physically.

We feel out of alignment.

We get health problems that are persistent, but have no real known cause.

They seem to be energetically caused by blocks, fears, anxiety or worry.

The root chakra is connected to our sense of security and stability. It’s the part of us that grounds ourselves in the world.

It’s how we feel comfortable in this world and feel safe.

Everything that has left us feeling dejected, insecure, worrisome or afraid sometimes makes a big imprint on the root chakra. It sticks to it like glue.

Worries about financial stability or security, how you will support yourself financially or have fears that you are physically or emotionally unsupported by others can affect the root chakra.

These become literally “deep rooted fears” in the one chakra that is supposed to give us stability and grounding in this world.

If you’re prone to fears of instability, insecurity, anxiety and worries, you may have a lot of work to do on your root chakra that it may be a constant work in progress.

Ways of a Crystal Witch

Crystals Witch Witchcraft Divination Tarot TarotPugs Wicca Magick Spells Chakra

Most witches love crystals and gemstones.

The ways of a Crystal Witch are by someone who practices the craft and uses crystals and gemstones extensively in their practice.

There’s something natural and versatile about them. Many crystals are readily available and can be affordable, yet some can be more rare and expensive.

Many crystals share the same or similar properties so there’s always the possibility to find an alternative crystal if one is unavailable or out of your budget. Continue reading

Crossroads Spell to Remove Blockages

crossroads magick spells witchcraft wicca tarotpugs

If you feel that blockages are preventing you from progressing further in an area of your life, whether studies, career, love, money, spirituality, etc., this spell is designed to help remove these blockages using magick from the crossroads.

Crossroads are commonly known for showing us different directions that our lives can take and open new possibilities.

Deities that are associated with crossroads are best worked with if you have a current relationship established which can be done through various ways such as tarot, ritual and meditation or even visiting a crossroad to get a sense of the energy and leaving offerings.

Offerings to these deities can be left at a crossroad, however whatever is offered can’t be returned to you and must remain there (i.e. don’t part with anything you might miss or need later!)

It’s said that offerings made to Hecate at a crossroads are to be left there are night, and as you walk away, don’t turn around to look and to keep walking away so as to avoid seeing Hecate directly.*



What’s needed:

1 white tea light candle
1 obsidian and 1 lepidolite crystals
Crossroads dirt * / **

Time of Month:

Eve before New Moon (aka Dark Moon)
30th day of the month
30th of November (Hecate’s Night of Crossroads)

Note: If you’re familiar and comfortable, you can work with Hecate or any other deity that is associated with the crossroads. If you’re not familiar or haven’t worked with deities that are connected to the crossroads, you may find it better to work with Spirit or God/Goddess or Crone goddess energy to aid you.

This spell can be worked outdoors or indoors with variation.


Outdoor Version:

This spell is ideally performed at a crossroad (three-way or four-way), however if you are able to do this spell in a secluded open area outdoors, that should be sufficient also.

With supplies for the spell ready, you can place the crystals in your pocket and light the candle which you can hold (if safe to do so) or you can place on the ground (be careful not to knock it over) or a table near by (if you have an outdoor altar – even better).

Set your intention of what you would like to manifest in your life, which blockages that you would like to remove, what you would like to be able to achieve or attain. Write this down if you need to in order to keep it firm in your mind.

If at a crossroads: With a handful of crossroads dirt, toss the dirt around you widdershins (counterclockwise) at each direction of the crossroads. Start at the northern point or close to North then widdershins (counterclockwise) to each direction and toss the dirt on the path or road leading towards you.

If not at a crossroads: With a handful of crossroads dirt, toss the dirt around you widdershins (counterclockwise) at each direction from North to West to South to East then North again.


With this crossroads dirt,
I remove all blockages in my way;
may my desires manifest,
With these words to (your deity), I pray
may my path be blessed.

May this spell not reverse
or place upon me any curse.

So mote it be.

Leave tea light to burn on its own in a safe place.


Indoor version:

Since it would be messy to throw dirt on the floor (‘cause seriously, I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to clean it up), you can use the candle on your altar and place the crystals on the altar on each side of the candle. (Note – don’t use a special, white or fancy altar cloth for this spell since it’ll get dirty – literally.)

Sprinkle the dirt around the candle in the same direction of North to West to South to East then North.

While sprinkling the crossroads dirt around the candle, recite the same as above:

With this crossroads dirt,
I remove all blockages in my way;
may my desires manifest,
With these words to (your deity), I pray
may my path be blessed.

May this spell not reverse
or place upon me any curse.

So mote it be.

Leave the tea light candle to burn on its own in a safe place.

May all your paths lead to where you want to be.
