One area of my home is dedicated as a workshop for magical experiments. Once I bought an antique armoire, painted and gilded it, and then consecrated its use for magic. It serves not only as a permanent altar, but also a very useful storage space for my ever-growing collection of magical materials and artifacts. Since so many people who have seen it wonder what all I’ve got in there, let me give you a peak inside. Items marked with an * will have further details at the bottom…
- The Red Book of S et L – My personal book of shadows. Essentially the true Book of Faustus.*
- Mortar and pestle
- Railroad spikes*
- Bundle of sage
- Cauldron of Ogun*
- Shamanic rattle
- Fetish of Eleggua* (I messed up and made two 8’s) 8. Deck prism
- Assorted candles, figurine candle
- Herb jars *
- Brick dust
- Chicken foot charm
- Book of Sigils*
- Hawaiian Baby Woodrose seeds
- Resin incenses
- Palo Santo
- Perfume vials
- Witches’ Flying Ointment (by Sarah Anne Lawless)
- Morning Glory seeds
- Cone incense
- Sacred jewelry, kept in a clay pot I made
- Vision potion herbal blend
- (Located underneath 26) Packets of baneful plant seeds. Henbane, atropa belladonna, cinquefoil and others.
- Hot plate for burning vessels
The altar level, which I decided not to release full photos of, contains many other items including the orisha Osun, ceremonial tools of the Golden Dawn, active spells, mojo bags, offerings, bells, wands and everything else.
Any magic mirror of mine needs to be fancy as fuck.
A proper cauldron. Not just for cooking but also for large potion batches–ayahuasca comes to mind…
Gays and their disposable income, what can I say?
