As discussed in my Introduction post to Star-working, most of my experience comes from working with the Constellations as groups on a whole; I do know of those who work with individual Stars, and there is plenty of material on planetary correspondences & astrology available on the internet; as a result the following posts I release will not focus so much on these aspects of Celestial-craft..
Depending on how you view the Constellations alters the way you can tap into their energy when doing so. Seeing them as natural forces or an energy-source to be evoked may mean that your role in ‘drawing down' their energy is more active and controlling, whereas if you view them as 'higher' entities or energy sources than yourself, you may wish to take a more passive role in their invocation, perhaps asking for their assistance in your working as you go along.
The techniques I have pulled together for channeling the various energies of the Stars and their groupings will be looked at in detail under a ‘read more’ for convenience. I will discuss how to approach making use of Celestial Tags, reciting the Affirmations of each Zodiac, and Tracing the Stellar patterns.
p u r p o s e - to enchant a specific object with grounding and relaxing energy to provide relief for worrying/negative thoughts/anxiety.
s u p p l i e s
- a smooth and small stone
- your personal favorite essential oil or perfume
- Choose your stone carefully. Smooth stones are best because you want one that you can easily rub with your finger, and you also want to be able to fit it in your pocket. Choose a stone that you feel drawn to and put at ease by.
- Sit down in a quiet area with your stone, no distractions.
- Feel the stone in your hands for a while. Feel its shape and weight, its curves and surfaces. Do this until the stone feels warm to the touch.
- Put a tiny drop of the essential oil on your finger, then smear it on the stone and let it dry or wipe it off before doing step 5.
- Close your eyes, and hold the warm stone in your hands and think of things that make you happy. What is your favorite memory? What do you look forward to in the near future? Shoo away any worries or anxieties, and don’t second guess your thoughts, just think them, and let them flow through your body and out your hands into the stone.
- Do this for as long as you feel necessary: 1 minute, 10 minutes, an hour; whenever you feel like the stone seems “full”.
- Whenever you feel anxious or begin to worry, hold the stone in your hand and run your fingers over it.

- This enchantment is not a replacement for actual medical treatment! If you feel like you are suffering from a disorder that is disrupting your daily life, please see someone if you are able to.
- Some essential oils should be diluted with a carrier oil (olive, vegetable, coconut, etc.) before use or they can irritate your skin. Read the bottle your oil came in for proper dilution instructions. If it makes your stone oily, it’s okay to wipe the oil off afterwards.
