Hi guys sorry I havent been on in awhile...been having some problems in life going on. I have a quick question to ask though....My teacher left last Jan. and so I've had to go solitary since then. I was wqondering...I dont ALWAYS have the cash for herbs and stuff for my altar that are required in certain spells i want to work...Does one necessarily HAVE to have herbs and candles and stuff for spells?

I think that depends on the path you follow, some will have very strict traditions other will be loose, and yet others will be in between.

No, I wouldn't necessarily say so. Improvising can work quite well. Search around the kitchen for things like a pinch of salt or dried herb. Also, tealight candles can work quite well. As long as the right intent is behind the spell/ritual, then the rest of it doesn't have to be perfect.

Scrupulously austere in its order
Of white and black
Ice and rock; each sentiment within border,
And heart's frosty discipline
Exact as a snowflake'

The mental power, focus and passion you put into ritual is far more important and powerful than any object (whether it's a herb, a tool, etc.). At least that's what I think.

Magick is within you....tools are just tools. Just like it would be easier to cut the grass with a mower than by picking off each individual blade, you CAN do it without the mower!
