Prophecy & Phoebe: Lumen Oracle Blend

As a part of our work with Phoebe this month, Ivy and I created a blend to call in the energy of Phoebe. Phoebe represents the power of the luminaries, the solar and lunar forces that lead us toward our own great knowing. This blend was created to burn away the noise to illuminate what we need and allows our own strategic wisdom to come forward.

What you’ll need:

  • Sunflower (dried petals or oil)
  • Mugwort (dried herb)
  • Jasmine (dried petals or oil)
  • Nettle (dried herb)
  • Mortar and pestle
  • A jar to store it in

I found that I did not have dried sunflower petals on hand but did some research and found that dandelion petals correspond with our uses here. My point is this: research and see if you have something that will match the purpose and intention.

As a side note, with all herbs, take all proper precautions if you have allergies, are pregnant/may become pregnant, or take medications (consult your doctor).

Directions:

Measure with your heart. No really. Take each herb or oil and spend a moment with it. I noticed right away Nettle and Mugwort were ready to go. Nettle went into the mortar and pestle first and then Mugwort. Continue to add in your ingredients and the amounts that you feel led to add. Play with this a little, using all your senses, and you are going to end up with the perfect blend for yourself.

Once you are done adding, begin to grind and mix in your mortar and pestle until it reaches the consistency you desire. Place it in the jar you chose for storage.

Use:

Burn* a little every day in a fire safe container to get yourself into the space of calm clarity, discernment between danger and fear, reinforcing boundaries, increasing clairvoyant abilities, and healing. If you are unable to burn your incense, put some in a little dish on an altar that is out of reach of children and pets and visit it each day for a few minutes.

*Please practice all proper fire safety in your craft, we do not accept responsibility for mishaps.

Lilith’s Fiery Darkness Incense

From the many stories, myths, and historical documentation such as the Alphabet of ben Sira or many books by Raphael Patai detailing out the vast base of knowledge and history surrounding Lilith, there is one thing I know to be true for myself:

It easier to demonize a woman than it is to let her hold her own power, so it must be stripped from her and her daughters.

That is where we are. It is where we have been. We have been unable to grasp fully our divinity, our connection to it with our body, our ability to hold steady the polarity of creation and destruction that is our birthright, and always seeking where that power and connection is hiding. Where is that wisdom located within us and how do we harness it?

Lilith’s Fiery Darkness Incense

Getting connected with Lilith is a great way to start reconnecting and finding that wisdom, shine a light on it, reactivate it and reclaim it. Many of the correspondences used are meant to be red, a root chakra color, the life blood, and full of the fire of creation. The others help us connect with the wilderness that can be air, our thoughts and ability to connect to the liminal spaces. We can get into the space of the dark, where wisdom resides, and pull it back into consciousness.

Ingredients

  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Cinnamon
  • Clove
  • Mugwort
  • Dragon’s Blood
  • Benzoin
  • Sage

Additional information:

I used dried and powdered herbs, plus resins. I don’t measure, I allowed her to tell me when to stop. She wanted less Cayenne and more Cinnamon while I was making it. It felt as if she wanted me to ease into this and I obliged. It smells amazing! I made quite a bit, as I know this will be going on the Black Sacred Candle this month to draw her energy into the workings.

Directions:

  • Spend a bit of time with each ingredient.
    • Research them, feel into them, and tell them the purpose that you are using them for.
  • Add each ingredient into your mortar and pestle, leaving Sage for last. She said so and again, I did it anyway (and later it made sense ~ sit with it, let it come to you).

So tonight, while others are celebrating a country of ‘freedom’ with fireworks, a country that has chipped away at freedoms like my own body autonomy just days ago: I reclaim it by lighting this incense to myself and connecting with the power of Lilith. And know this: in the fiery darkness is where I will find and reclaim the power I hold that cannot be tamed. No, in fact, this month, she requires it roars forward in every woman. Go get it!

A Candle & A Key,
