Pinterest Gone Pagan: Pumpkin Pie Money Spell


It's almost Thanksgiving! At least in America. Which means us Yanks are baking and cooking and eating away. And in between all that gratitude and turkey, I'm guessing you're probably going to help yourself to a slice of pumpkin pie. Or sweet potato pie, which you could absolutely substitute for this Pinterest Gone Pagan spell.

...But just so you know, this is a pumpkin household, mmmkay?

Whew...I think my morning tea just kicked in. Feeling a touch feisty. It's English Breakfast, which I'm drinking out of a pumpkin mug. I wonder if England has American Breakfast tea. I doubt it. But if they did, I bet it would be doughnut flavored. Or bacon cheeseburger flavored. At the very least it would most definitely taste like freedom...which I think has subtle undertones of vanilla and bergamot?

There I go again. My apologies. It's the first truly chilly morning here in New Mexico, and all this fresh air has me and my cat feeling a little spunky. Don't hold it against us. We just spent the last six months in climate control. It's sort of like kids on the last day of school, so much pent up energy and we're not totally sure how to dispel it. Maybe I should break out the yarn. For me. For crocheting. The cat's terrible at crocheting. He always chews on his yarn, thus making his blankets smell like fish. It's quite off-putting.

..........

Where were we?  Ahh, yes! Money! It's that time of year, the season where everyone seems to overspend in one form or another. But rather than focus on the budget being tight (which isn't a good place to concentrate your attention!), why not put that nutmeg-dusted pumpkin pie to use and conjure up a money spell? And since this pie is most likely shared among a group (though it's none of my business if you want to grab a fork and head on down to bloat town), this spell will have a positive effect on all those who indulge in your sweet, creamy treat! 

...Just going to leave that unintended double entendre there for you to do with it what you will.

I like The Kitchn's recipe for pumpkin pie (Here's the pin) because it uses individual spices rather than pre-made pumpkin pie spice mix. There's nothing wrong with using pre-made; your spell will manifest just fine. My qualm is simply because I already have those spices on hand and don't want to spend more money on a pre-made mixture. Which, if we're being honest, isn't really much of a qualm. 

The best part about this Pumpkin Pie Money Spell is that it's LOADED with money-magnetized ingredients! Pumpkin, cinnamon, & ginger are all money-attracting goodies. Milk, which represents fruitfulness, will also contribute abundance and wealth to your life. The eggs are a potent symbol of possibility and potential. And lastly the sugar, which represents the sweet aspects of life—the indulgences, the comforts, the icing-on-the-cake so to speak.

If you're using a pie crust— *overly analytical voice in head interrupts* 

Voice in head: What do you mean "if?"

Me: Well, I don't use pie crust.

Voice in head: Then what you have is pumpkin custard.

Me: What I have is tasty GOODNESS, but back to the spell...

If you're using a pie crust, take a moment to lightly score money symbols into the bottom of your crust. You could draw the standard $ symbol, but even just the words "wealth" and/or "abundance" work splendidly. As you sprinkle in the cinnamon and ginger into your filling, imagine it's money falling into your lap, heaping into a giant pile until it falls onto the floor because it's that abundant. As you crack open the eggs, picture opportunities opening before you (maybe in the form of a new job, more hours, or a new career adventure). While you pour the milk into the bowl, envision abundance flowing into your life just as freely as the milk cascades from the measuring cup. 

Lastly, before you take that first decadent, cinnamon-laced, creamy, pumpkin-y bite, remember to share a bit of gratitude. After all, it is Thanksgiving, and we have a lot to be thankful for. If you're looking for a simple Pagan blessing, check out this one I use daily:




Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Blessings to you and yours! And if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving in November, then Happy 4th Week of November! ;)
