Yellow pigments in the Parrot Toadstools could be the key of their Taxonomy
The Parrot Toadstool, Hygrocybe psittacina (Hygrophoraceae) is one of the most popular green mushrooms. The green color of this fungus is not permanent. They are Initially green with shades of yellow, orange or purple, but as it grows and the bell-shaped cap expands, it turns more yellow, sometimes retaining an orange or purplish tinge as the green slime washes off the cap.
The color of this species is due to the presence of a yellow pigment called muscaflavin, also present in some other species of Hygrocybe and a few other fungi. Muscaflavin in Hygrocybe species is accompanied by other pigments named hygroaurins.
The presence of muscaflavin pigments is a remarkable chemotaxonomical character in fungi, since its presence in different species allows to establish relationships between taxa. This is useful, because the distinction of species and their taxonomy, especially in the genus Hygrocybe is not always clear and unambiguously through macroscopic, and even microscopic, characteristics.

Creating a sigil


A sigil magick is a symbol that you creat that carries your will. For example in this tutorial the sigil will bring bravery.


1. Write out your intention 

"I will be brave"


2. Remove all repeating letters

W R A V

3. Then simplify the letters into basic shapes 

\ / \ / I C \ /— \ \ /

4. Then put those letters together and make a symbol from them. Make the symbol one that you feel comfortable with. 

— a way to charge your sigil is to have other people look at it, or you can meditate with it, or sleep with it.


-Now from this step, you can do one of many things. 
Fold it up and bury it, Burn it
Rip it to pieces and let the wind carry it off, put it in a river, lake, stream, ect. 
rip it, set it in melted candle wax, put in witch bottle.

And using a sigil can be fun and easy, 

-you can put one on the bottom of your shoe to help with travel. 

- De solve in water (with food safe ink) and use as a elixir 

-make a sigil amulet and ware on a daily basis.

-use it in spells

-use them in your charm pouches 

- burn as offerings

Their are many other uses of sigils , and if you’d like to learn more about the subject I suggest the book: Practical sigil Magic by. Frater U.D.
