Today is magickal Monday. This week, I’ll be talking about the magical properties and uses of pine.

Usually when I think of pine I think of winter celebrations, but today during a summer heatwave the spirits told me to talk about pine. It hadn’t even come to me as I burned white pine resin this morning and put black pine on my feet. I flipped open one of my books and there he was as I asked which plant to write about.

Pine is used in magick for healing, spiritual cleansing, protection, money, fertility, and exorcism (driving out spirits and negative energy). He also has a strong grounding aspect.

To draw money to you, burn the needles or add then to a money gris gris. Think about the label “evergreen” and the association to prosperity. Add pine needles to a cleansing bath or burn white pine resin for personal cleansing or blessing. The scent of the resin is very grounding and can bring you to center and peace. To drive out spirits or cleanse negativity, burn pine needles and resin and for added strength add camphor. This can also be done to reverse and send back spells. You can carry pinecones as a talisman for fertility.

Pine’s uses:

• Healing
• Spiritual cleansing
• Protection
• Money
• Fertility
• Exorcism (driving out spirits or negative energy)
• Grounding and centering

When you think of the magical properties of pine, think of purification, healing and protection. Pine can be a shield for strength, and a strong cleanser. Picture the pines and how they are always awake and green, vigilant and strong, protecting the forest. Pine plays a big role in my cleansing and protective work.

    We found a pine cone leave tied to the rafters of our home but neither of us have tied it there. Can it be used in a spell against us? We have removed and burned the leave. Please help us and what spell must we cast to ward off any evil or black magick spell that might have been cast. We have gone through a bit of trouble the last few months but after removing that, there is a far better atmosphere around our place.

    1. Pine is traditionally used in positive work for prosperity, abundance, fertility, and purification. It can also be used for cleansing. There is very little chance that it would have been placed in your house for negative purposes. If you would feel more comfortable with putting protections up you can bury iron nails at the 4 corners of your house, but I’m not seeing it as necessary. The trouble before burning the pine and feeling better afterwards is most likely a matter of fear and focus. If you believe in any way that the pine was negative magick, then that is where energy is focused and you will see things in that frame of reference. Let me know if you need any help, but I think things are fine.
