Fascinating and majestic, always present in the magical and healing traditions, the juniper (Juniperus Communis) is a portentous plant.
The juniper is a bushy and evergreen shrub.
It symbolizes the strength of fire and the warmth of the sun, the power of masculine energies and the pursuit of freedom, helps to free the anger and gives us courage.
Since ancient times it has been recognized healing properties: a fragrant essential oil produced from berries that is used in massages for the pains of rheumatism, useful in the treatment of calculations and cough, an aid to relieve the liver and bile, lowering the glycemia to help to regularize the menstrual cycle, urinary antibacterial and above all able to cure acne,
Boil for about 5 minutes of juniper berries and roots of dandelion or potetr also replace the dandelion with rosemary leaves. Filter everything in a colander and if you prefer to sweeten with a teaspoon of honey. Drink 2 cups a day.
Magically it is a plant of protection in fact its name in Greek: arkeuthos means the one who rejects the enemy. His other magical ability is to propitiate good luck.
In Italy anciently the juniper was planted in front of the houses to drive away spirits and malign entities, the coal produced by the burnt wood was pulverized and scattered around the house or used for fumigation in the rituals of protection, a small branch hanging on the cradle of newborns and in the door of home.
Big logs were burned on the night of December 31st by farmers to propitiate the harvest and the health of the animals and good luck for the next year. The wood was also burnt to disinfect the rooms where the sick were standing while the Egyptian obtained from the berries an ointment that I used to grease corpses before mummification.
BRING LUCK BAGS
Burn a sprig of juniper and when it is cold put it together with a coin and 3 grains of incense in a square of green silk. Remember: while doing this and while you sew the small square to close it, with green thread, you must be very focused and try to visualize the purpose for which you are creating the bag. Be careful that even when preparing magic bags there is a rule: do not have selfish desires and remain rational in desiring.
Which means that it makes no sense to want to win billions in the lottery but rather to look forward to good opportunities to earn your finances or receive a promotion or for example to sharpen your senses in order to recognize the dangers or be protected. Luck is not just about receiving money, but also about creating lucky occasions in every field of life. Your task will be to recognize the signals and know how to interpret them and seize the opportunities that fortune presents to you.
After you light a candle and pass the bag 3 times over the candle fumes and 3 times on a pure incense fumigation. While doing this thank the Goddess of Fortune for situations or lucky occasions that will send you on your path and above all with humility you promise to use them for good.
In a square of black cloth (black because the protective bags should not be picked up and neutralized by any operator) put 3 grains of incense, 3 juniper berries and a pinch of salt. Sew it with black thread, focusing on what you would like to be protected, for example from negative energies or astral larvae or inferior intent spirits or attacks of black magic.
After you light a candle and pass the bag 3 times over the candle fumes and 3 times on a pure incense fumigation. Even here the rule of thank is worth.
Boil a handful of juniper needles and a handful of berries. Let infuse for about 10 minutes then squeeze well and filter and pour the water into the tank mixing it with normal hot water.
