This Amazon is famous in their traditions: her house or dairy of stone is yet extant; some of the inhabitants dwell in it all summer, though it be some hundred years old; the whole is built of stone, without any wood, lime, earth, or mortar to cement it, and is built in form of a circle pyramid-wise towards the top, having a vent in it, the fire being always in the centre of the floor; the stones are long and thin, which supplies the defect of wood; the body of this house contains not above nine persons sitting; there are three beds or low vaults that go off the side of the wall, a pillar betwixt each bed, which contains five men apiece; at the entry to one of these low vaults is a stone standing upon one end fix’d; upon this they say she ordinarily laid her helmet; there are two stones on the other side, upon which she is reported to have laid her sword: she is said to have been much addicted to hunting, and that in her time all the space betwixt this isle and that of Harries, was one continued tract of dry land.[21]

The Magickal Aspects of Cinnamon and Cassia

http://themagickkitchen.com/the-magickal-aspects-of-cinnamon-and-cassia/

As a fairly new Witch I’ve been trying to think of clever ways to memorize all of the different magickal correspondences I come in contact with every day. A way to invite Magick into my life even when I’m not feeling particularly magickal. 

So every time I add an herb or spice I will recite its correspondences. In this case a dear friend gave me some banana bread which I added cinnamon to, because life just needs more cinnamon. As I was sprinkling this beautiful spice I rattled off it’s magickal aspects such as its element is fire and it promotes luck, love, power, protection and so on, now those are some exciting Magickal ingredients to power up your day.
