~ Santisima Muerte Rosary Short Video ~

This is a short video about the Santisima Muerte Rosary. I plan on making a much longer one going into further detail with prayers later on but for now this should be enough to get the jist of it. For those that were raised Catholic or have used other form of prayer or meditation beads you will find it easy to learn how to use the Santisima Muerte Rosary.

There are various reasons for using it, to make a stronger connection with her, it aide in sleep on restless nights, some rituals of hers require that it be performed as part of a 9 day ritual or NOVENA as it is called. While I was raised Catholic I have incorporated some of the traditional Santisima Muerte workings into m practice but I have changed things up as she has guided me to to make our working relationship more effective.

It is not ABSOLUTELY necessary to use this item as part of your working relationship and devotion to her if you are drawn to learning it BY HER then by all means do feel free to purchase one and learn it. I have found that by taking my time and not rushing to get it done you really feel her presence while reciting it. I of course have created my own invocations to recite which I have shared with the students taking my Santisima Muerte Magick course but there are a few websites out there that have posted various prayers used when reciting the Santisima Muerte Rosary.

I leave you with the short video below and will be working on a much longer full length video which will contain both traditional and varied prayers.

~ Santisima Muerte Irish Luck Prosperity Ritual ~

* This is a modified version of our annual Santisima Muerte Irish Prosperity Ritual performed by members of Ye Olde Dark Arts Coven-Tradition which has turned into a very fun gathering for all and we hope to be able to open it up to others of like mind in the near future *
What started as a simple gathering to help us start our way towards planting seeds of prosperity on this day has become a huge gathering of fun, laughter, food and of course MAGICK!  We begin by setting up an altar for Saint Patrick and the ancestors using the colors green, white and gold, we add decorations such as cauldrons with gold coins, fake money, shamrocks, flowers, candles a second cauldron to burn our requests on, paper and pen, incense and for those that want to bring a pic of their ancestors or their names can simply be written on a piece of paper and placed on the altar. .  We like to think of this ritual as tilling the soil of our garden before we plant the seeds of Ostara which we perform a few days later .
We start by cleansing everyone in attendance one at a time, then after they are cleansed everyone is instructed to each take a paper and pen, sit down and clear their minds and think about what they would like to prosper more at, what debts they want to clear up, where they would like guidance with a situation that seems to have no resolve, maybe a bit of luck getting a long sought after promotion. Once this is done and everyone is instructed on how to fold the papers, we begin with the following prayers:
SANTISIMA MUERTE INVOCATION FOR DEBT
Hail Santisima Muerte,
I come before you today to ask for a financial blessing to improve my life.
My faith keeps me strong, and I know you will provide for me and the people I love.
I do not seek a large sum of money. I do not trouble you for unneeded comforts
or luxury. I only ask for enough money to relieve my financial woes and ease this stress.
I give unto you here on this paper, the burden that I carry knowing you will aide me in relieving it.
So Mote It Be.
INVOCATION FOR EMPLOYMENT
Santisima Muerte, 
I turn to you seeking your divine help and guidance as I look for suitable employment. 
I need your wisdom to guide my footsteps along the right path, 
and to lead me to find the proper things to say and do in this quest. 
I wish to use the gifts and talents that have been given me, 
but I need the opportunity to do so with gainful employment. 
Aide me Santisima Muerte to grant me this favor I seek so that I may return to you with praise and thanksgiving for your gracious assistance. So Mote It Be.
Once these prayers have been recited each person is to then place their request in the burning cauldron so that his/her request is carried upwards to Santisima Muerte and a candle that has been prepared is lit.  Next each participant is given a plate that has a bit of food that is offered to Santisima Muerte to help in aiding your request.  Once this is done the participants themselves can sit down and enjoy the food themselves to ground them.

~ The Witching Hour with Lady Rhea ~

Copyright 2020 The Witch’s Lair Occult

I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank Lady Rhea, Rita Segarra, Daisy Orsini and Laurie Bizzarro for a most educational evening. It was most interesting to see how sister witch worked with Santisima Muerte and how the these lovely ladies each shared their knowledge and personal working experience with all that attended. It was beautiful indeed. HAIL SANTISIMA MUERTE and may she continue to bless each and everyone of her devotees.

Imbolc Traditions and Symbols
Brigid Corn Dolly – a very old custom involved making a “Brigid” corn dolly that can be placed in a “Bride’s bed” to bring fertility and good fortune to the home.  If you made a “Corn Mother” at Lammas, you may simply re-use it.  Dress the Corn Mother as a bride in colors of white, red and or gold, and your Harvest Crone transforms herself into the Brigit Spring Bride. Place the Bride in a “Brigit’s bed” along with a priapic wand to symbolize fertility.  A priapic wand is a be-ribbonned fruit wood wand with a pine cone on the end which symbolizes the God.

Brigid’s Bed – to show your hospitality and to encourage the Goddess to spend the  night at your home, create a “Brigid’s Bed” near the hearth fire.  By inviting Brigid to stay overnight in your home you’re symbolically asking that her powers of fertility, blessing and healing be with your family all year long.  A Brigid’s bed can be a pretty wooden or cardboard box, a wicker basket or anything large enough to hold your Brigid corn dolly.  Be sure to decorate it with ribbons, flowers, herbs etc. and place a comfy blanket on the bottom of the bed. Don’t forget to place the priapic wand in the bed so that the Goddess will not be lonely.

Hearthfire  – the hearthfire is sacred to Brigid and is her altar in every home.  At Candlemas in the depth of winter the fire was more important than ever.  It was not allowed to go out and in the evening the fire was smoored ( covered with ash to preserve the hot coals) by the lady of the house

Brigid’s Crosses – are a form of woven straw or rushes symbolizing the Sun and used as talismans to bring fertility, prosperity and protection to the home.  They would be created at Candlemas and hung on the door, near the hearth, under the eaves or in the barn to bring luck and protection.

Burning the Yule Greens– the evergreens for Yuletide decoration are gathered and burned by Candlemas.  It is a symbolic way to let go of the old year and make way for the new.

Springs and Wells – toss coins in wells springs, fountains or any running water as an offering the the Goddess Brigid
