Working Magic – Direction

rachel patterson, kitchen witch, spells

Drawing an oracle card from the Flower Magic Oracle deck gave me a focus for working some magic.  This week’s card is knautia, the  meaning of which is – wandering (as in not having a direction).  So, I have given the meaning of the card below along with some other correspondences.

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 to create a spell.

KNAUTIA WISDOM

Wandering aimlessly through life can suit some people, not having any plans or ideas about directions to take but it doesn’t work for everyone.  It can be pleasant to take time out and do nothing, it can be very good for the soul to go off on an adventure not know where or how.  So, if you need to take a moment to just ‘be’ then do it.  However, wandering with no purpose can lead you to confusion.  You will need to decide…do you want to just let the universe do its thing and wander with no guidance, no purpose or direction?  If you do, then you will have to change your mindset to cope with the unexpected.  If your life wandering and floundering about has left you feeling adrift then it is time to do something about it.  You can still wander with purpose, your life doesn’t have to be a strict adherence to the rules, but a little direction is usually wise.  Think about where you want to be.

KNAUTIA MAGIC

The flower heads can be dried and used in incense blends and sachets for magic to stop pets (or humans) from wandering off.  It can also be used in magical workings to create new adventures and open pathways for you.   Knautia flowers are good ingredients for spell workings to help you socialise and interact more easily in group situations and to aid in creating new friendships, partnerships or business relations.

KNAUTIA STORY

The common names for the knautia are ‘widow flower’, ‘Macedonian scabious’ and ‘field scabious’.  Flowers from the species were used during the bubonic plague to treat skin sores.  The flower heads grow on long spindly stalks that wind and wander in and out of other plants in the garden.
