Quartz – Clear Quartz is a fantastic stone that can be programmed with your intentions. It has the ability to absorb negative energy and store it until cleansed. At the same time, it can amplify positive energy and boost other crystals which is why it is often included in crystal grids.

Said to bring joy and good luck to its owner.

Apple – Apples have a long history in magick. In fact, if you slice an apple in half, you will see a pentagram shape, so it is not surprising that apples are linked to protection magick. They are also said to correspond with love, health, prosperity, fertility, and divination. 

Rue – Rue is said to increase your mental abilities. It is believed to protect and can remove negativity. It is said that if you add rue to a bath, you can remove hexes.

Animals

Owl – Owls are nocturnal so can watch over you as you sleep, keeping you safe. They are associated with protection and carrying messages of great wisdom. Owls represent the ability to navigate through any darkness we may encounter throughout our lives. 

Stag – The stag or male deer has a long, deep connection with Paganism and Wicca. The stag represents transformation as their horns grow, fall off, and then grow back. The stag is also a symbol of the hunt that would coincide with Mabon to feed our ancestors although many no longer agree with hunting now that food is readily available. 

Blackbird – The blackbird is known for its beautiful song. He is not a bird that likes to fly far and high, instead, he keeps close to the ground taking short well-planned journeys to get to where he needs to be. He is a home bird that takes great pride in his nest (home) and territory. Blackbirds symbolise home and family, finding your voice and making use of it, safety, and good luck.

Wolf – The wolf is often thought of as bad. However, in Celtic lore, the wolf was thought of as the hound or dog of the forest and was to be respected. Wolf symbols on soldier’s armour represented strength and courage. Wolves are social animals within their packs symbolising the importance of family and friends.
