Let's get magickal, D. D. Scott-ville!
Today, to celebrate my new wonderfully bewitching series - The Belle Bishop Books - which launch in late February with Book One, PRACTICAL MISCHIEF, I'm kicking off my new blog series filled with Magickal Mantras!
In this series, I'll treat you to a bunch of magickal spells, teach you to conjure up powerful warding witchery, and train you to work a little kitchen and garden magick too!
It all begins with this...
D. D. Scott's Magickal Mantras: #1 - An Apple a Day Brings Magick Your Way
Did y'all know that an apple is one of the most magickal of fruits?!
Why, it even has its very own five-pointed star (pentragram). Simply do a cross-section cut, and you'll see it!!!
Apple wood makes for a great wand, and the tree itself is a favorite of witches. When witches celebrate both Mabon (which is a Thanksgiving of sorts) and Samhain (a witch's Halloween), apples are used as a divination tool, decoration and as yummy treats. They are also symbolic of knowledge and illumination. And are thought to be a gateway to other realms such as faeryland and The Summerland (the land of the dead).
Need a great love spell? You might work with an apple.
Need a secret way to let someone know you are a witch? Then serve them an apple and cut it crosswise.
Need a great way to spread love, gratitude and generosity? Show it in apples and apple blossoms! :-)
I eat an apple a day, and it's not just about keeping the doctor away, although apples also represent healing. It's to bring more magick my way!!!

P.S. I also enjoy red, apple-scented candles and use them for spellcasting.
