New Moon in Scorpio Transformation Tea

Updated: Feb 24

At the core of my being, I dislike rules, traditions, authority, and set schedules...iykyk. While I'm an initiated priestess in the Afro-Cuban Ifa-Lucumi tradition, I also consider myself an eclectic witch. I'm lucky to have had godparents who honored and encouraged me to develop relationships with my Orichas in my own way.

I know there are rules for working with the moon and her phases. Sometimes I follow them, sometimes I don't and it always works out...usually. I've done new beginning magick on a full moon because I felt that I needed to see her light and I've done banishing work on the new moon because I needed to feel her darkness.

Surprisingly, there are times when I enjoy following the rules and this new moon in Scorpio was one of them. My husband asked me to make Hibiscus tea and being the witch that I am, I said "Why don't I make a witchy Scorpio transformation tea instead?" " As long as it has hibiscus flowers." Friends, get yourself a partner who supports you prefacing the names of all dishes and beverages with "Witchy" or "Magick".

New Moon in Scorpio Transformation Tea Recipe

In all seriousness, this is just a standard recipe for hibiscus tea. However, because everything is magick, I believe that when you intentionally select ingredients because of their spiritual properties, cooking takes on another meaning. You can drink or bathe in this whenever you like, not just during the new moon. Below is a list of the ingredients and their spiritual properties. Aside from its spiritual benefits, this tea has amazing anti-inflammatory properties.

  1. Dried Hibiscus flowers: transformation, regeneration, love and passion. If you can't find dried hibiscus flowers at your local Caribbean, Hispanic, or Asian grocer. Amazon has excellent organic dried hibiscus flower petals.

  2. Cinnamon sticks: protection, prosperity, healing.

  3. Fresh ginger root: purification, fire, passion, healing

  4. Cloves: protection, cleansing, healing

  5. Oranges: happiness, prosperity, success, passion

  6. Ground Allspice: courage, strength in the face of adversity, leadership. Allspice berries also work beautifully.

  7. Honey: pleasure, sweetness, abundance, success

Unfortunately, I don't always measure. I just add until the gods tell me to stop. So, call in the ancestor who loved to cook, your spirit guide, angel, or your higher self to join you in the kitchen. Trust your intuition.

Before you begin

  • For this recipe, your kitchen will be your magickal sanctuary. Set up your mise en place for the tea (gathering and prepping ingredients).

  • Play music if you like.

  • Set your intention for the tea.

  • Protect your space with some Rue Water

  • If possible (fire safety is key), light a Moon Magic or Hekate Tealight Candle.

  • You can also light a candle for self-love or protection.

The instructions are simple.

  1. Fill a large pot with water.

  2. State your intention or the property of each ingredient as you add it into the water, for example. "Hibiscus flower for transformation." Continue to do this for each of the seven ingredients. NOTE: the honey is to sweeten to taste. If you're not a fan of sweets like me, just add a little for the spiritual properties. If you're allergic to honey, brown sugar works beautifully too).

  3. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, taste, and adjust accordingly.

  4. After about 10-15 minutes or so, take it off the heat and let it rest.

  5. Strain and enjoy hot or cold.

Bonus witchy tip #1: Add a splash of spiced rum or whiskey for the adult witch version.

Bonus witchy tip #2: Turn this tea into a bath by placing the ingredients in a tea bag or cheesecloth and placing it in a tub full of warm water, just be sure that the ingredients don't irritate your skin.

Bonus witchy tip #3:Light a red, pink, orange, or black candle (choose the color aligned to your intention). For example, I chose a red candle and anointed it with clove oil from Moonlight and Sage. I added cinnamon, allspice, red rose petals, and calendula to the candle as well. I set my intention and visualized my outcome.

Don't forget to enjoy the process. Magick can be a science, but it should also be fun. If you're looking for support on your spiritual journey. Please book a session or email me for clarification. I'd be honored to work with you!
