My Favorite Magic Shop

Ramon Alejandro

This is the most insanely cool online magic shop.  Look beyond the hokey site design to the actual amazing content and legit occult info on there.

If you have been thinking that Jupiter into Virgo could be a nice cue to get your witch vibe happening with more exact attention to herbs, potions, essential oils, planetary correspondences, culinary spells and all, start with Alchemy Works.

This is not a promoted post lol – my site is reader-supported and thus advertiser free – but i just happened upon this site again the other day and was wowing out at all the product and info on there.

I am ordering the Shield of Mars oil for Mars-Pluto this month and currently browsing for something Saturnine.  The site/shop is the work of someone called just “Harold” – clearly a major witch. I mean, seriously w.t.f., Harold?

I also ordered some Lightning Dance, the Jupiter planetary incense:  Copal, juniper berries, nutmeg, white sage, white oak bark, walnut, hyssop, European sage, and grapefruit. For works involving politics, rule, expansion, protection in court. Can help with self-esteem and is a classic for purification.

Let’s face it – the Muggles are getting WAY restless and apparently completely (at best) incompetent or (worse) venal and corrupt when it comes to running the joint/sane financial management (“Economist, balance thy books” is the new “Physician, heal thyself’ so we need all the magical aids we can lay our paws on.

The site is great and totally legit, but I should warn people to watch out for “so called Alchemists”— I was in a new-age woo woo shop and saw this sort of shrine/contraption and asked what it was. It had little blue vials and symbols all over it. The shop assistant said some people–who called themselves Alchemists—had insisted she display it, called it an Alchemy House. Apparently you had to wave your water bottle over the roof and the water would take on magical properties. The assistant said it gave her “bad vibes” and the “energy was a bit off”….I… Read more »

Right, vacuums up previous line of salt across door, washes floor, replaces line of salt, douses self in oil of Pluto and continues writing about actual topic rather slipping further into hideous, unproductive, convenient, lazy LZ vortex.
Topic!

i love this site so much!! soooo many hours wasted on it. somebody someday can get me like a thousand dollar gift card there and i will be happy forever. 🙂 i got the oil of pluto (i think invicta recommended it- tank you 🙂 ) which is so different from the prev oil of pluto which is soft and deep and comforting. aw’s oil of pluto is TOTALLY cold and dry and with nothing reassuring at all. it’s empty and terrifying and honest and amazing. i also got babalon oil (which somehow does have essence of blood, freshly dried… Read more »

Yay! Oil of Pluto is my all time favourite smell.
It really is the sexiest, most powerful scent I’ve ever inhaled.

Ok so I think I’m ready to share my full moon experience. I was supposed to spend a few days and nights in the most lavish hotel on the French Riviera, Riviera Royal or something, St Tropez baby oh yeah- with a rather dashing 40 year old “friend” I’ve known and been extremely fond of for years. It’s always been strictly come casual and play safe safe and no strings but super fun. We’ve never had sex. He is not an alcoholic. He loves poetry, exquisite food, fabulous locations and is a highly intelligent, attractive man involved in high finance… Read more »

Crikey! As for “Fuq me sideways!”…its all lovely necessary chaos, I am so afraid of (I missed my flight, when I was in my twenties to reconnect with my father after a 15 year absence) how funny and too true…Are you a jupiter person too?

I have it on my ascendant 12th…I am always optomistic, idealitsic, spiritually convinced in people’s better qualities, opening my mouth to say what I should not, wander, explore where I probably should avoid…

So beautifully anecdotal and free!

Thanks aquasunbird Yeah I’m Jupiter rising in Sag and I have a 12th House moon in Sag. I have a lot Virgo trickster energy in me too. All my Virgo is squished up and conjunct itself in the 10th House which honestly I’ve always thought odd since I am utterly incapable of being Machiavellian, or even getting social “group politics” right. The sort of skills that allow you to stay in an office environment rather than have half the office madly in love with you and the other half just hatting your guts – either way I have never managed… Read more »

Yes I relate to this – extremes states, uranus pluto opposite mars & chiron, jupiter on the acsendant opposite mercury, grand visions, optimism, 10th house moom trine mercury, sextile jupiter…It will not abate, especially if you know what you will not put up with! Good thing too, so what if you don’t fit in? I was head hunted, fired, poached, retrenched, like a spinning wheel, never stopped me…I always landed on my feet, regardless of what I endured…Somehow I just do it. Survive, triumph even when it all blows up, mostly I stay cool on the exterior. I can be… Read more »

Hilarious! We sound quite alike in some ways. I love your brazen determination re hitchhiking to get that job. Funny story! I tend to be more of a drifter…. I hitchhiked around a lot as a kid. I mean I took CRAZY risks, travelling through parts of Africa that took days to hike to to buy mary jane from an old guy called Jack. Get to the top of the cliff after three days of hiking and he’s expecting us. He’s impeccably dressed in a white suit in the blazing heat. He had two small boys walking behind him carrying… Read more »

after weeks he won’t tell you his name even when asked?

InvictaMM Member
Invicta

Nope. I didn’t ask him directly ….It was in a vague and jokey way but tbh it’s not the greatest sign is it?
Thanks for validating me on that.
He’s intoxicatingly sexy and charming.
Such a mix a fire and water. Part of me wants to just enjoy it while it lasts and be in the moment etc and part of me is saying, “it’s clear he just wants to be fuck buddies. He hasn’t asked about who else I’m seeing and we’ve kept it super low key but withholding a second name?
Honestly it DOES bother me…

I’m glad you’re enjoying it darlink, and by all means continue to do so….but no, that does not scream “AVAILABLE”*

who knows? he might have other reasons?

Such as?

i thought maybe careerish ones? dunno. seriously wasn’t trying to make you feel bad about, just checking what the lay of land was. I actually thought you meant he wouldn’t tell you his first name….

InvictaMM Member
Invicta

Oh god no, he’s open about stuff. I am probably over reacting. When I went to his place it was clear he’d really made an effort to impress me. So he’s not shutting me out. I’m so good at playing the alpha bitch that I probably come across way more aloof than I feel. I do really have trouble expressing any kind of vulnerability. Even FF councils me against that. He feels he needs to kind of prove his surrender to me by fighting his own hypocritical envy and actively encouraging me to see this guy/ other guys. Bizarrely, he… Read more »

I know for a fact he does not have a girlfriend. He’s spoken of an ex, an actress who spent 6 months in CT shooting a film which meant he spent the better part of 6 months in CT It’s very possible’s just not over her and still hopes they’ll get back together. His songs are “yearning LZ baby come back to me type ballads. Not cheesy as much as soulful Scots boy stuff. It screams Venus- Neptune trine. All very romantic and sad. I also sense that he’s juggling a few women atm and just trying to buck up… Read more »

supakaliMM Member
supakali

he sounds so obsessive and Pluto has been active last few days with the Sun opposition, so maybe he’s reacting to that. More full-on next week. i think he sounds sorta pathetic to go on about you but not to give you a real option. what does he want? an audience?

InvictaMM Member
Invicta

Oh he’s the first admit he’s pathetic! Also VERY PLUTONIC I hello Forensic psychoanalist? About as Plutonic as it gets. But his sun in my 6th house – the house of slavery and whenever there is Pluto-Sun action he gets completely sucked into the vortex of “having been born to serve me” – It’s a long and very karmic story with us. We accept that for what it is now and just try to make the best of things. Fortunately our moons are in each other’s 3rd house and we have this great kind of “brother & sister” rapport that… Read more »

Thanks so much for the praise! I’ve been running Alchemy Works for 15 years. Started it because I always bought too many seeds, and then gradually branched out into making oils, incense, and whatnot. I really enjoy it, and yes, I am a witch. 🙂 Also, the cats: http://www.alchemy-works.com/cats.html Heddy has passed on, but the rest are still hale and hearty, no evil eye. Orders do occasionally get eaten by Australian customs, but these are generally seed orders. That’s why I discourage people in Oz and NZ from ordering seeds; they will just get seized. There can be problems with… Read more »

Yeah Charley, you’ll get it but I’d advise going for the more expensive option in terms of the posting when you check out. The first time I placed an order I opted for international priority rather than first class (imagine that!) but international used to be one of my three favourite words so it felt right but the treasures took eons to arrive (not that they weren’t worth waiting for, they were!) but I’d advise flying your bundles of Magic Joy FIRST CLASS baby. x

His planetary correspondence charts were like a goddess- send. Including confirming a longstanding belief that Marijuana is Saturnian. For that I will be forever grateful. And efficiently and responsibly stoned.

You have this theory too about MJ? me too! I thought i was the only one. Hemp was a building block of civilization in that the plant was food, medicine, clothing, fibers for rope..sailing boats….later on hemp plastics/resins. Only it got diverted towards Neptunian stuff through hybridization and GMO processes to capitalize the “high” virtues of the plant, which is IMHO the most useless part. Very Capricorn and very earthy.

Harold Roth

I think marijuana definitely fits into the Saturnian category on account of its smell. Also, it does tend to slow people down, and slowness is a Saturnian quality, IME.

Hi Harold I ADORE your oils and have just bought some more…Jupiter rising, she’s broke but HAS TO HAVE it! I ordered some of your incense too but I see you’re all sold out of chemical free charcoal. Any idea where I could procure some? I looked on Amazon but to no avail. I’ve never used charcoal to burn incense before and didn’t want to buy the shisha ,or barbeque charcoal which was all my search yeilded. If there is a trusted source you know of or you have any recommendations please share. Thank you! PS my Vegan Yogini hairdresser… Read more »

That’s so cool. I am curious, how does your friend keep it? Is it in the bottle, or out in another way?

InvictaMM Member
Invicta

He just keeps it on top of his vintage cash register. The bottle I mean. But he’s pure Kataka love and bubbles so when he sweeps the shop in the morning I think he flicks a little in the seats, just the teeniest bit and swipes his customers with it too. He and his wife live above the shop on Portobello road and they are VERY into crystals and Ayreveda – still can’t spell that word…omg I should be asleep.lol couldn’t resist checking in here xx

Cunningham has hemp listed as Saturnian, but also feminine and watery. It’s like a gogo gadget tool for overly fiery air masculine me. I feel at once expansive but held, contained. Not that I can afford it but it’s really incredible for both pain and seizure stuff. I have Saturnian in gemini and mercury in Pisces, so I find I actually communicate better using it. People find me less confusing. I also clean and file LIKE A BOSS when high. Legally in Massachusetts of course. My 83 year old dad wishes I could always be stoned. Alas.

Sadly I bought a bunch of stuff from Alchemy Works years ago and they never arrived. I think they were transported to another dimension (via the UPS vortex) while winging their way across the Atlantic. That or a customs officer confiscated them. While Harold and I both tried to locate my package, no monies were refunded, which left me hesitant to try again. I hope others have better luck.
And yes it had a tracking number.

I have several things devoted to Saturn, which is a planetary influence I have worked with a lot since I feel it has a lot of effect on me personally and since I especially like the Nightshade family (and they like me). Plant spirits I have had contact with have been Saturnian–Datura, Mandrake. I make my own Saturn oil and incense as well as making Agrippa’s Saturn incense. Plus I incorporate various Saturn plants into oils and incense.

I should add that my own personal incense is Hearts of Saturn, which features henbane pods stuffed with a mix of cypress, mullein, musk seeds, hemp essential oil, and other stuff.
