Gypsy Spell

For a Life full of Sunshine:

Light an orange candle and place a bunch of St. John's Wort flowers beside it. Make a wish, then hang the bunch of flowers over your main entrance way in your home. Leave the candle to burn out on it's own. It will bring your wish and ward off Evil.

October 31st,  the day that is the thinnest between the Spirit World and the physical world. 

Happy Hallow's Eve all

 Gypsies who have been wondering the earth for more than a millennium became objects of hatred, wonder, controversy and mistrust. Coming to Europe 6 centuries ago they brought with them the exotic traditions and dialects of far flung cultures. They became known as skillful storytellers, musicians, and fortune tellers. As well as being gifted practitioners of palmistry, crystallomancy, and many other forms of divination, including tarot card reading, which they claim to have indroduced in Europe in 1427. 
The Gypsies cling to age old customs, courtship rites, and dialect. Romany communities are still to be found in the length and breadth of Europe and deep inside the former Soviet Union.  In a decade or so there may be none at all.

Romanies are true friends of the earth, with their Nomadic existence they have lived closer to nature for longer than anyone else, and they are among the last free spirits on the face of the globe.
