Lodestone is excellent for grounding and protection from evil and spells and will dispel negative emotions such as fear and anger. It also guards against infidelity.
Lodestone can align the chakras, and balance yin/yang energies. It is used to lessen or dispel grief, fear, anger, confusion, and attachment. It helps relieve burdens and increase energy and endurance.
Lodestone is related to the astrological signs of Aries, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Virgo. It is said to strengthen the circulatory system, help with healing blood and bleeding problems, alleviate pain, boost the immune system, and relieve agitation and depression
When used in healing rituals lodestone can draw pain away from the body. Lodestones are considered to have a gender and it’s easy to tell them apart; female lodestones are rounded, male lodestones are phallic.
Lodestones are thought to be one of the most “alive” of all the magickal stones. They possess memory, intelligence and consciousness along with wit and a soul. Because of this perception, lodestones must be periodically replenished or “fed” with iron filings, iron dust or magnetic sand.
To feed your lodestone first dress it with a magick oil of your choice to suit your desired results, or with pure essential oil, or with whisky then sprinkle the stone with iron filings, iron dust or magnetic sand. If your lodestone is very depleted after being used in extensive spellwork place the lodestone in a glass, stone or metal bowl, then cover it with dirt (crossroads dirt is best) and let it rest for 3 days.
Lodestone can be worn as an amulet to attract good fortune, or placed in oil for a period of time to produce Magnetic Oil, which can then be used to anoint candles, charms or oneself to attract good fortune.
To make Magnetic Oil, place the lodestone in olive or grape seed oil on the night of the Moon’s first quarter and swirl the container three times deosil. The following night swirl it widdershins, the next night deosil again, and so forth, until the night of the Full Moon, when it will be swirled again deosil. Remove the lodestone and your oil will possess the magickal power to attract
