Working with my Flower Magic oracle cards, this week I drew ‘Empowerment’ which is perfect as it is ‘white rose’ and they are blooming all over my garden right now.
I have given the meaning of the card below along with some other correspondences for ‘empowerment’.
If you watch the recording of the live video chat I did, you will also see me working some magic. I use some of the herbs and crystals mentioned below along with the oracle card for focus and created a jar spell.
WHITE ROSE – EMPOWERMENT
WHITE ROSE WISDOM
This card is all about you, with self-love and acceptance of who you are and what you are comes empowerment and that totally rocks! Relax and centre yourself, take back your own power and take on the world. This is about giving yourself permission to be in charge, to totally own your own space and be in control of all that you do, think and say. Whatever needs sorting in your life you can tackle it, make it work for you and make your voice heard. Even if it is just giving the kids a list of chores that they need to do before they get their allowance – that is a major achievement! Make your power work for you. Accept yourself, bring your emotions into balance and you are well on the way to empowering yourself. Accepting yourself for who you are is paramount to taking control of your own life and ultimately your own destiny. Accepting your strengths and your weaknesses will allow you to better understand others. Acceptance that the world and all the humans on it are not perfect and acceptance that you are not perfect either is a huge step forward and will help you to live a more peaceful and productive life.
WHITE ROSE MAGIC
Rose is a good herb to use to represent the mother goddess and also for any workings where mysteries need to be delved into. Roses and the petals have long been associated with love, so they work well for any kind of love spells; use pink for friendship, red for passion and white for peace. Rose is a very feminine flower so can be incorporated into any spell or ritual work that requires feminine energy. Sprinkle rose petals in your bathwater for a balancing, relaxing and love filled bath.
WHITE ROSE STORY
Romans loved their roses and would use them to decorate, to throw over the floor to make the room smell nice and would float them in their wine, they were an inventive lot. Roman brides and grooms both wore crowns of roses. The deities Cupid, Venus and Bacchus are often depicted wearing crowns of roses. If you were having a meeting and you wanted it to be a private one you would hang a single rose above the dining room table as a sign that anything said over the table would be kept secret. Perhaps even where the idea of ceiling roses came from?
I used a tahini jar working with the magic of sesame:
