We are harvesting a few watermelons today. I tried to remember any watermelon magic and came to a blank standstill. Does anyone else have any ideas what to do with watermelon to add to learn and add to my craft?
harvesting watermelons with my beautiful nephews and as a matter of fact the youngest ones name is Harvest.
I’m glad you’re having a fun harvest!! Looks like a perfect opportunity for some Kitchen Magic.
According to Scott Cunningham’s Wicca in the Kitchen:
Ancient Egyptians mixed watermelon juice with wine and gave this drink to ill persons who were believed to be possessed by illness-causing demons.
In Hawaii, a watermelon is sometimes rolled out of the house through the front door to ease the spirit of a deceased person into the next world.’
Watermelon is sacred to the goddess Yemaya in the various manifestations of the Yoruba religion.
Magical uses: Nothing is more refreshing on a hot summer day than ice-cold watermelon. This is a healing fruit. Simply eat with visualization. Like all melons, the scent alone is also healing.
(Also, mandatory question regarding your nephews: did you get their parent’s permission to share their picture online, since they are minors?).
PS here’s another recipe:
Yes, my brother knows I used the pic, Thank you for asking! much love
Happy National Watermelon Day Watermelon helps reduce blood pressure. It also has lycopene which is cancer-fighting and can help with macular degeneration. That is pretty magical in my book!
Happy harvest @moonshadow- it looks like you have some very enthusiastic helpers in your garden!
I can’t say I know much about Watermelon Magick myself (aside from the fact that I love the sound of it) but it looks like Francisco has some wonderful info and spellwork you can do!
Although it’s not specific to watermelon, you could consider doing a simple Food Blessing (perhaps one of these Pagan Meal/Food Blessings and Prayers)
That’s perfect that it’s National Watermelon Day, @mary25- what a great holiday, and ideal timing too!
I first have to say that your nephews are the most adorable little people ever!! And the name Harvest is beautiful! Hers a link with all the properties. Magickal Properties of Watermelon
