Cherry Blossom Runes

I am offering for sale one single set of runes, cut, crafted, blessed and anointed by me.

I cut these runes from the Cherry Blossom tree in the hour of the solar eclipse on the 29th of April. The tree was saluted and fed in this night when the right eye of God was overcome by Her luminance...

I chose the Cherry Blossom tree given her deep connection with Moon and Venus, which had dignity in this night, but also because of its relationship with eclipses.  Japanese myths tell us that the tree is sacred to the divine princess Konohananosakuya-hime. She herself symbolizes the extension of death, namely life ephemeral and temporal, just like the Cherry Blossom tree prior to its short gift of flowers enters death where all leaves falls off prior to casting off a bounty of flowers.

Japanese legends tell us further that beneath the tree lay a myriad of corpses. These corpses are laid at the root of the tree by its bloodthirsty guardian, Seishirou that protects its mystery and also feed its roots with the blood of intruders and warriors (bushi). Especially the bloods of warriors are sought after and some accounts tell us that the most dignified of all forms of seppuku (ritual suicide) was the one the bushi made under the Cherry Blossom tree. As the warrior offers his blood to the earth and the roots soak it up it colours the Cherry blossoms in the light pink these white flowers once had.

Given the symbolism of the Cherry Blossom tree it is fair to say that this tree do hold proper powers and potentialities for harvesting runes of a peculiar energy that invites in forces commonly associated with Rowan and Yew, but its connection with the underworld and death also makes this particular wood a source for the wisdom found in wells and springs or the blood water that the roots of Yggdrasil stretches down towards.

In the very same night callings to spirits of the nature of Venus and Moon was done and an oil capturing the eclipse was prepared and savoured for the purpose of anointing the runes on May Night (Beltane/Walpurgis).


As May Eve came I marked the runes with fire and washed them in wine and honey before anointing them with the oil of eclipse and all runes were called forth to inhabit the rune set as each rune were burned into the wood.

I made two of these sets and I am offering one of these unique twinsets of runes for sale. The rune set offered up for purchase also named itself in the process – and the name will of course be imparted to the future owner of the set. 

A final feeding of wine, honey and oil will be given in the name of the person purchasing the runes.

Quimbanda Workshop (Umbanda & Quimbanda) 2022

The Cabula/Temple Meia-Noite da Encruzilhada will arrange for its yearly workshop of Quimbanda from 7 th of September to the 11 th of September 2022 . The workshop will this year also cover Umbanda , hence we will make a workshop under the greater umbrella of ‘ macumba ’. The workshop will be held in Brazil, in the state of Minas Gerais on a Farm located in the midst of the forest, 100 km from the airport Guarulhos in São Paulo. In this workshop we will offer traditional Umbanda baptism and we will offer the first initiatic step in the ladder of Quimbanda , what is often called vinculação , a ceremony working on the same level as a baptism that aims towards establishing a true and strong bond with your Exu and Pomba Gira. These initiatic steps will be followed by a full Gira (drumming) where also the spirits of Umbanda will be celebrated as we move from these spirits of forest and wisdom towards Exu and Pomba Gira during the celebration. These important parts are mediated by se

The ‘firmeza’ of Quimbanda

Quimbanda is a cult centred on the direct and head on interaction with spirit, hence developing mediumistic skills and capability in spirit trafficking is integral and vital to working Quimbanda. Possession is a phenomenon that intrigues and also scares. After all we have all seen movies like The Exorcist and other horror thrillers giving visual spectacles to how hostile spirits can take over the human body, mind and soul in intrusive and fatal ways. But possessions do find a counterpart in the shamanic rapture as much as in the prophet whose soul is filled with angelic light that makes him or her prophetic. Possession is not only about the full given over of your material vessel to a spirit that in turn uses the faculties of the medium to engage various forms of work. Inspiration, dream and to be ‘under the influence’ are potentially valid and worthy avenues for connecting with spirit. Yet another avenue for good spirit trafficking is the communion, or what Jake Stratton-Kent ca
