Magick and Speiicraft in Theory

L have incorporated the use of magick in my everyday life for many years. For the first few years, I did so without ever questioning why certain practices worked. I simply purchased the typical spellbooks and did what the author said would work. Sometimes the spells seemed to work and sometimes they seemed not to. After a couple years of trying every spell that claimed to offer the results I desired, I found myself wondering why some worked and some did not. To answer that question, I had to determine how spells worked. Finding books to aid my discovery was difficult. The only thing spellbooks had to offer was what supposedly worked for the author or what reportedly worked in the Middle Ages. Then I stumbled onto a book called Magick in Theory and Practice by Aleister Crowley. The book contains a very sound theory on how magick works. However, the book has very little to do with spells and almost nothing to do with spellcraft in a Wiccan context. Upon reading the book, I realized why...

Magick For Your Needs

Casting your needs into the cosmos and trusting they will be met does work, but not if you are expecting magick to compensate for an unnecessary shopping binge. Nor, after a period of overeating and no exercise, can you expect a miracle diet to work so that you shed a stone in two days while still eating chocolate. Spells tend to work best when there is a genuine need, generated by real emotion and linked to determination on a practical level.

Magick and Wiccan Spellcraft

* agick started with our first observation of the universe. Like science, magick is a way of explaining the amazing things we observe in the natural world. Thousands of years later, Pharaoh (or some other poser) warned that he would blot out the sun. His people were terrified. Without the sun, crops would fail and people would starve. When the day became night at Pharaoh's command, it was the magick that made slaves cower and masters beg. Well, it was magick to anyone who did not understand the natural laws that govern a solar eclipse. Wiccans and other nature-based religions see absolutely nothing supernatural about magick. The very idea that we believe in a difference between magick and science is insulting. Our religious views are not how we explain the supernatural because we do not believe that anything exists that is supernatural. Naturally we believe that magick really works because it is a system of understanding the very real natural world. The word magick is just a word...

Magicka Incense and Tinctures

To use incense with charcoal disks, turn the disk upside down so that the cup faces down. Hold the disk to a flame until it starts to spark, then invert it and place it on a bed of gravel or sand in a censor or other fire-safe container. At first, it will smell similar to lighting a match because both contain sulfur. As sulfur has its own magickal properties, it is a good idea to keep the burning disk away from your ritual area until the initial sparks go out. The sparks will stop after a minute or two. When the disk starts to turn white and glow, you can sprinkle on the incense. Smoke will rise immediately. How long your incense will smolder is dependent on the ratio between plant material and resins. A side benefit to using powder incense is its versatility. Almost any powder incense can also be used to make tinctures.

The Principles of Magick

As a science, magick has certain principles that are at the heart of its mechanics. The first principle is the Principle of Similarity. The second is the Principle of Contact or Contagion. Both of these principles come under the designation of Sympathetic Magick. The Principle of Similarity is also referred to as Homeopathic or Imitative Magick. It states that like produces like, or that an effect may resemble its cause. Simply put, whatever you do to the symbolic representation of a person, place, or thing will directly affect that same person, place, or thing. A good example of homeopathic magick is the Voodoo doll, created by practitioners when they wish to influence someone. The doll is fashioned to look like the person they wish to influence. Then, depending upon the circumstances, the practitioners will proceed to heal or hurt their targeted victims through magickal conjurations. Because the dolls look like (imitate) the intended victims, they are capable of creating a link with...

The Magickal History of Hemp

Also known by the folk names gallowgrass, ganja, and neckweed, the hemp is an intoxicating plant with a long magickal history. Being a common ingredient in many love spells from centuries gone by, it was also added to love potions to inspire the affections of others. Additionally, it was believed to facilitate the psychic powers, and for this reason it was often dried and burned by diviners as incense (along with mugwort) prior to, and during, the scrying of magick mirrors. In medieval times, hemp was used as one of the mind-altering herbal ingredients of sorcerer's grease a magickal ointment reputed to be used by sorcerers and sorceresses for flying, shapeshifting, and invisibility. The art and practice of hoodoo (which is also known as conjure, conjuration, and root work) is an African-American tradition of folk magick. Not to be confused with Voodoo (a Haitian religion), hoodoo is neither a religion nor a religious denomination, and is therefore not capitalized. Although it...

Popular false moral You should never attempt manipulative magick

All acts of magick are acts of manipulation. Consider what you have previously heard or read about manipulative magick elsewhere. Most Wiccan literature claims that manipulative magick is bad. Our social ethics tend to agree, but only to a point. The leaders of the Wiccan community have given us very mixed signals on the issue of magickal ethics. In his book Incense, Oils, and Brews, Scott Cunningham lists business incense. The instructions tell the reader to burn the incense in a window to attract customers. Knowing how directly connected the sense of smell is to the brain, this does seem awfully manipulative. Isn't this subliminal advertising, or do subliminal suggestions only count if sight or sound is used Is there that much difference between the customer attracting incense that Wiccans rarely feel is unethical and the infamous subliminal advertising corporations have been accused of using against unknowing customers Once you recognize the spell is real and question how it...

Magick And Responsibility

True magick is not like a cake in which everybody must vie for a slice or be left with none it is more akin to a never-emptying pot. Like the legendary Cauldron of Undry in Celtic myth, the more goodness that is put in, the more the mixture increases in richness and quantity. The Cauldron of Undry, one of the four main Celtic treasures, provided an endless supply of nourishment, had great healing powers and could restore the dead to life, in either their former existence or a new life form. Located on the Isle of Arran, it could be accessed by magical means or through spiritual quests, and many scholars believe it was the inspiration for the Holy Grail. But when using magick, you should take only as much as you need and perhaps a little more you should not demand riches, perfect love, eternal beauty, youth, a fabulous job and a lottery win or two. So, magick does not provide a help-yourself time in the sweetshop. The results could be like eating three times more chocolate than you...

Folk Magick And Ritual Magick

Modern Magick

Magick for healing, it must be said, is not so far removed from the prayers of conventional religions, whose positive influence is well documented. The same effect can be created whatever the focus or faith, and I know from personal experience that positive results can be achieved when a Wiccan coven sends healing light to a sick member or a friend. For hundreds of years, angels have been invoked in magick, just as in religion, both for protection and to act as vehicles for healing or positive energies. Practitioners of white magick may focus on particular aspects of a god or goddess figure, or benign power, personified through different deities from many age and cultures. When I began practising magick ten years ago, I found it very artificial to invoke a goddess who belonged to another time and culture. However, I have since found that such symbols do hold a great deal of power and therefore can concentrate specific energies. I have listed in Chapter 4 a number of deities that seem...

Magick In The Southern Hemisphere

In magick, time and direction have an important place and it is necessary to understand that there may be differences according to which hemisphere of the globe you are working in. In the northern hemisphere, magical circles are cast clockwise, or 'deosil', which means 'in the direction of the Sun'. In the southern hemisphere, however, practitioners casting their circles deosil should normally cast them anti-clockwise, because that is the direction of the Sun in that hemisphere. preference and all this diversity actually has a very positive effect, because it means that you can weave the natural forces into your personal creation of magick. The only important thing is that you are consistent in your attitude.

Oils and Incenses in Magick

Rosewood Rosewood calms mind, body and soul, creating a setting conducive to peace at home or work, especially if there are difficult negotiations, or potentially hostile visitors or phone calls it will also clear away existing conflict. Rosewood soothes hyperactive or restless children, and in adults brings acceptance of life as it is and the frailties of others. It is good for energising all forms of natural magick. As I have said before, magick is part of life and there is nothing wrong with carrying out rituals for your personal needs and a little more. However, you must make an effort, when you are financially more secure, to share your good fortune with those who are genuinely in need. As long as you bear in mind the cosmic 'balance sheet', this will ensure that there are sufficient energies to go round. You can, of course, pay in kindnesses and help, as well as in monetary terms.

How to Cast a Magick Spell

Proper timing, correct symbolism, and focused attention or creative visualization are the things it takes to make your magick work. The following suggestions will help those just starting out cast truly effective spells. Saturday is associated with Saturn and the first law of Karma (limitation). In magick, Saturn is the tester, the principle of learn ing through trial and error. Saturn spet s should be used to preserve, stabilize, and crystallize ability the ability to discipline the self. Most skilled practitioners of the magickal arts will agree that symbols are the link between desiring and acquiring. Symbols are simple, and most often natural. They allow some people to get what they want, whereas others never seem to succeed. The proper use of symbols goes hand in hand with knowledge, experience, and accomplishment.

Leave the altar candles to burn down Preparing Your Mind For Magick

As well as preparing the physical area for magick, you also need to prepare your mental state. In a sense, magick is about using the bicarmel mind, placing the brain's right hemisphere in the driving seat, taking concentration, focus and determination from the more logical side as fuel and a map, and reconnecting our unified self with the undifferentiated universe. You can carry out magick absolutely anywhere as long as you are in a positive frame of mind. But many practitioners believe that by entering an altered state of consciousness, you remove all the conscious blocks and allow the intuitive brain free access to the unconscious mind and with it the repository of human and cosmic wisdom. This brings about a state of mind in which energies can flow between the dimensions. Invoking your protective angels to stand at the four corners of your magical circle, performing the rituals of preparing your magical tools and, in more formal magick, casting a circle - these are all ways of...

The Substances Of Magick

The substances of magick for formal rituals are the same as those used in informal magick. I have already described their magical associations in informal spells and in ritual magick the correspondences in colour and fragrance are exactly the same. Each is set in its own quarter of the circle and used to charge the focus of the ritual with power. They can also be used for empowering and cleansing your ritual tools.

Magick And Giving

It is said that if you smile in London in the morning, the smile will have reached Tokyo by evening. This principle, which lies behind all white magick, has been named morphic resonance, and has been investigated for several years by the Cambridge biologist Dr Rupert Sheldrake, author of a number of excellent books based on his extensive research into psychic phenomena. Dr Sheldrake suggests that as animals of a given species learn a new pattern of behaviour, other similar animals will subsequently tend to learn the same thing more readily all over the world the more that learn it, the easier it should become for others. So if we carry out positive magick and spread goodwill, then we really can increase the benign energies of the Earth and cosmos. Even banishing or binding magick can have a creative focus, diverting or transforming redundant or negative energy, for example by burying a symbol of the negativity or casting herbs to the four winds.

Magick And Knowledge

White witchcraft is essentially the process of drawing on ancient wisdom and powers via the collective mind that we as individuals can spontaneously but unconsciously access in our dreams and visions. In magick, we can use rituals and altered states of consciousness to access this cosmic memory bank at will and in doing so, some believe, draw on the accumulated powers of many generations, especially in healing magick. Gaining such knowledge has been described as 'inner-plane' teaching and if you can trust your own deep intuitions, you need very little formal teaching about magick. If you scry at the full moon or during one of the ancient festivals, by looking into water and letting images form, this deep wisdom will offer solutions to seemingly impossible dilemmas. The practice of witchcraft demands great responsibility, for you are handling very potent material when you deal with magick. The benefit is that by focusing and directing your own inner powers and natural energies you can...

Oil Magick

You can use oils as part of a ritual. In traditional magick, oils are placed in the West of the altar for the Water element, or the East, if lit, to symbolise the fragrance rising on the Air. But they can equally form the focus of any spell, each oil being charged with its particular purpose before use.

The Magickal Process

One of the most important aspects of any magickal work is creative visualization. It is considered to be the key to success and personal power. Creative visualization is a process or technique used for making dreams and wishes come true. In essence, creative visualization is a fancy name for the old children's game of let's pretend. The magician creates an image in his or her mind of a person, place, or thing that he or she desires to have or to affect. This image is then empowered through magickal incantations and then acted upon during ritual. The psychic This is a very important guideline. Practitioners must believe in their goals or objects of desire if they are going to achieve them. There is a saying that what you believe can happen, you can make happen. Witches and magicians know they must have faith. They must believe in their personal power if they are going to get anywhere in magick or life. Practicing Witches or magicians will take photographs, draw, and even visit and or...

Gypsy Love Magick

The continental Gypsies, according to Scott Cunningham, have , used it in their amatory spells and sachets for hundreds of years. Magickal powers are attributed to the roots of trees, particularly the ash and the alraun, and it is said that many Gypsy-Witches cunning in the art of love enchantment know how to use them in the preparation of love philters (potions). Fern seeds are also a staple in the art of Gypsy love magick. Men traditionally give love potions brewed from the seeds of a male fern to the women they desire, while women traditionally give those brewed from the seeds of a female fern to the men whose hearts they wish to win over. Vervain is also another plant favored by the Gypsies for the drawing of love, as well as for the attraction of good luck. It is said that vervain must be gathered on the first day of the new moon before sunrise or it will not be magickally effective. Carry its dried flowers in a putsi or place them beneath your...

Magickal Products

Unfortunately, Wal-Mart, Macy's, and Sears do not carry pentacle-embroidered capes, consecrated tools, or gift sets containing love-drawing perfume. Consider yourself blessed if you have a well-stocked New Age or Occult store in your town. However, if you are one of the thousands of Wiccans who live in small towns or rural areas, mail order is your best bet. For the most part, the metaphysical supply houses listed here are owned and or operated by Wiccans and those involved in the magickal arts. Also, there are literally hundreds of sources for magickal products the following are just a few that I'm familiar with. A good place to begin further research is the Internet, but be careful there are unscrupulous people out there. All things magickal. Large catalog. Books, candles, ritual items, oils, incense, music, and much more. These people have been in business since the Stone Age. If there is something magickal that you cannot find somewhere else, these folks will more than likely have...

The Magick of Hers

In this section you will find close to 250 different plants arranged alphabetically by their common names. Each listing herein contains the plant's botanical name (in Latin), its Pagan folk name s (if known), type (perennial, annual, or biennial), planetary and elemental rulers, and the Pagan gods and goddesses that the plant is associated with in myth or magick.

Wicca and Magick

.Magick is the art of making changes in reality by acts of Will and Imagination. Magick could be said to be the Arty encompassing all other arts it is a way of creating the world Bill Whitcomb The Magician's Companion itchcraft is the celebration of life, and magick is the ability to control it. Magick is the one thing that can really help improve life, is something everyone can do, and is only as good or evil as the person using it. Magick is a science that brings those who practice it into alignment with the natural forces of the universe. By using Magick, like any philosophy, has infinite possibilities, as well as distinct limitations. It relies heavily on the strength of character and mental ability of the individual using it. Magick also depends on belief much more than it does on intent. What you really, truly believe is what will come into being not what you simply want. If you don't believe in what you are doing, then all the spells, candles, and incantations in the world will...

The Rules Of Magick

Magick is not beyond or above life, but a natural though special part of your world. It is about not leaving fate, your fate, to any guru or deity, but shaping it with your own innate power, the power that emanates from some higher being, goddess or god, energy source, what you will - the divine spark within us all. There are no absolutes in magick, there is only what works for you and enhances your innate wisdom and spirituality. You should use this book as you would any other DIY guide and adapt its suggestions to suit what is right for you. Choose whatever you feel are the most appropriate herbs, crystals or even entire rituals for your specific purpose. According to the rules of magick, as I said earlier, you cannot be angry, mean or cruel and then expect to say sorry to a deity and have the slate wiped clean. Magick is about taking responsibility for your own actions all the time and that is incredibly onerous. But, on the positive side, the results are equally potent, and if you...

Binding Magick

Binding magick has two functions, one to bind a person in love or fidelity and the other to bind another from doing harm. This may be done in various ways, using knots in a symbolic thread, or by creating an image of the object or person and wrapping it tightly. But all binding can be problematic in terms of white magick, for whatever method you use, you are very definitely interfering with the In my own experience, few who find happiness at the expense of others achieve more than temporary, superficial pleasure, and in time they do seem to end badly. We should never use magick in order to act as judge and jury. After all, some who do act badly do so only out of unhappiness or ignorance.

Personal Magick

As I have already said, it is quite permissible to use magick to empower your personal needs, though this does not bring lottery wins or the object of your romantic fantasies delivered gift-wrapped to your door. Magick has traditionally encompassed material needs, and spirituality is very difficult to achieve at a time when there is a crisis of physical need or emotional shortfall in your life. For example, in days when having sufficient food and heating was an ongoing concern, abundance for the coming winter months was a prime focus of Mabon, the harvest festival at the autumn equinox. Many kitchen witches would carry out private spells using the equinox energies, to empower talismans and cast spells to ensure their own family would survive the inhospitable months of winter.

Incense Magick

Incenser Draw

Like herbs and oils, incense can be empowered for specific purposes and can itself form a focus for a spell, as I describe later in this section. In formal magick, incense represents the Air element and is placed in the East of the altar. It is perhaps the easiest and most accessible magical substance and yet it can be a very potent form of magick. Incense burning differs from lighting essential oils, in that the fragrance is transmitted almost instantly on the smoke and so tends to be more concentrated and powerful than the slower-burning oils. It is therefore very effective for rituals requiring immediate action or the same intensity of effort from start to finish, rather than a gradual increase, perhaps of love or prosperity.

Symbols Of Magick

Although you can carry out rituals using absolutely anything, you may like to create a special set of symbols for a variety of rituals. These you can keep in a separate box within your main store of magick artefacts so they do not get scattered or broken. Tarot cards also provide excellent symbols for magick the Emperor for power, the Empress for fertility, the Ten of Pentacles for prosperity, the Lovers for romance, the World or the Eight of Wands for travel, Temperance for harmony, Justice for matters of law, etc. Even if you do not use Tarot cards for divination, a brilliantly illustrated pack, such as the Rider Waite or the Morgan Greer, will by their pictures suggest all kinds of images for your work. My book Tarot Talks to the Woman Within (Quantum, 2000) contains many examples of Tarot spells and in spite of its title, the book is very male-


W hen it comes to advice on magickal oils, bookstores seem to offer two distinctly different views. The first type calls the subject aromatherapy. Books in the aromatherapy genre deal almost exclusively with the relationship of oils to human emotions. It is a long-established fact that scent impacts the mind on many levels. The second genre of books on magickal oils are the ones that list such mixtures as money-drawing oil without any attempt at explaining why the oil might help you win at bingo. I believe we can use one of these schools of thought to explain the other. base oil. I have listed a concentration of 21 drops of pure essential oil to one-half ounce of base oil. This is the ratio that I have had the most luck with. It is much stronger than most magickal blends you will find in stores. The reason is twofold. First, essential oils are very costly and shopkeepers want to keep their expenses down. Second, no one wants to wind up in court over a nasty reaction to a strong...

Chapter A Garden of Dreams

Since the dawn of mankind, herbs have played a significant role in the practice of dream magick, most commonly being used for inducing dreams of a prophetic nature and giving protection to those who sleep and dream. Herbs have been utilized as charms to prevent nightmares and ward off demons that prey upon sleeping mortals, stuffed into dream pillows and brewed into magickal teas and potions to bring restful sleep, and made into magickal incense and burned prior to bedtime.

Witchs Wishing Well Garden

To create a magickal wishing well garden, plant around a well any of the following plants traditionally used by Witches and other magickal practitioners to make secret wishes manifest bamboo, beech, buckthorn, dandelion, dogwood, grains of paradise, hazel, Job's tears, pomegranate, sage, sandalwood, sunflower, tonka, violet, walnut. When the moon is full and her silver rays call to you to make magick, go to the wish garden and toss a coin into the well (or other container of water) as you state your wish and visualize it. Be sure not to tell your wish to anyone, otherwise it may not come true.

SpeCCs for Your Next Door Enemies

Mission it seems is to make our lives as miserable as they possibly can. (There is an old saying that high fences make good neighbors and I have had my share of neighbors in the past that more than deserved to have this old adage tattooed across their foreheads ) Luckily, when all else fails, there are a number of magickal tricks that a Witch can turn to. Note It is important to remember that what goes around comes around. So perform a revenge spell ONLY if you have just cause to do so, and ONLY after all other options have been exhausted. Never put a whammy on anyone just for the fun of it or to prove to them or to yourself that you have the power to do it. Wise Witches know that frivolous magick is for fools.

The BramCe Bush Spell

Long ago it was believed that if an ill person crawled backward and then forward three times under the natural arch formed by a bramble bush (a blackberry) rooted at both ends, he or she would be made well. This simple magickal method supposedly worked to cure a variety of ailments, such as boils, rheumatism, and even blackheads. Thrice under a Bryer doth creepe, which at both ends was rooted deepe Her magicke much availing. Michael Drayton. Nymphidia, 1751. In the Middle Ages, horses that were said to have been shrew-runne (paralyzed by the bite of a shrew) would often be drawn through a bramble arch to be magickally cured of the afflictions.

Garden to Weave a Web of Love

To create a garden of love enchantment, plant any combination of the following herbs traditionally associated with love-attraction on a Friday when the moon is new, waxing, or full. (Friday is the day of the week ruled by the goddess Venus, and the appropriate time for any magickal undertakings involving love.) Herbs of love Adam and Eve, apple, basil, cardamom, catnip, cherry, coltsfoot, coriander, daffodil, daisy, damiana, devil's bit, gardenia, gentian, geranium, hibiscus, High John the Conqueror, hyacinth, jasmine, juniper, lady's mantle, lavender, lemon verbena, linden, lovage, love seed, maidenhair fern, mandrake, meadowsweet, moonwort, myrtle, oleander, orchid, pansy, peach, peppermint, plumeria, poppy, raspberry, rose, rosemary, rue, skullcap, spearmint, strawberry, thyme, tomato, trillium, tulip, valerian, vanilla, Venus flytrap, vervain, vetivert, violet, willow, witch grass, wormwood, yarrow.

Garden of Fairy Enchantments

To create a magickal garden for the fairy folk to call home, or to attract them to an existing garden, be sure to plant some flowers that are fairy favorites. These include butterfly bush, carnations (particularly red ones), clover, coreopsis, cosmos, cowslips, daisies, foxglove, hollyhock, hyssop, lavender, lobelia, pansies, petunias, primroses (particularly blue and red ones), roses (all types), shamrock, thyme, vervain, yarrow, and zinnias.

Esbat of the Wort Moon

The full moon that occurs during the month of July is known as the wort (or wyrt) moon. However, some folks apply this name to the full moon of August. The word wort is old Anglo Saxon for herb or green plant. As the wort moon of July waxes, this is the traditional time for many Pagans to go out into the garden or woods and gather herbs for magickal and or medicinal use. An Esbat of the wort moon is an appropriate time for wortcunning (the knowledge and use of the healing and magickal properties of herbs). Many covens, as well as solitaries, dedicate this night to the ritual charging of herbs prior to their preparation and storage. It is also an ideal time for making herbal spell candles, herbal oils, and incense, as well as performing herb-related magick, and giving thanks and presenting offerings, to the spirits that dwell in and watch over a Witch's herb garden. As you place an offering in the garden beneath the rays of the wort moon bright, the spirits may come forth from their...

High John the Conqueror

The root known as High John the Conqueror is one of the staples of hoodoo magick. Legend has it that this root was named after an African king who was sold into slavery but able to outsmart his captors through his cleverness. lotteries and games of chance), break jinxes and hexes, cure depression, and enhance male sexual power. Male practitioners of hoodoo love magick also use it to win the hearts of women. In the early decades of the 20th century, a spiritual supplies company began production of High John the Conqueror perfume. Containing a piece of root in each bottle, the magickal fragrance was worn mainly by men for attracting the opposite sex as well as increasing their luck at gambling. The essential oil of High John the Conqueror is used by hoodoo practitioners to dress altar candles and anoint mojo bags. The root is commonly made into sachet powders, incense, and crystals for bath or floor wash. As far as magickal plants are concerned, High John the Conqueror is said to have...

Wormwood Curses and Charms

Wormwood is a dual-purpose herb that has long been used by Witches and other magickal folks to send curses as well as to protect against them. To protect yourself against curses, hexes, and all kinds of jinxes, wear or carry a mojo bag filled with wormwood and anointed daily with three drops of any occult oil designed for protection against black magick.

Chapter Gods and Goddesses

The following is an alphabetically-arranged list of Pagan gods and goddesses from various pantheons throughout the world. Each deity is linked in one way or another to plants, trees, flowers, medicinal herbs, magickal herbs, and the planting and or harvesting of crops. Invoke one the next time you plant an herb garden, gather wildflowers, or celebrate a harvest rite. Abellio Romano-Celtic (Gallic) god of apple trees. Abnoba Romano-Celtic (Continental European) goddess of forests and rivers.

Holly Weather Divination

If you are new to the art and practice of tasseography, do not despair if your first few attempts at reading the tea leaves are unsuccessful. Many readers see only vague shapes in the beginning. But, as the old saying goes, practice makes perfect. This applies to all skills, including magickal and metaphysical ones as well.

Tea Spells and Superstitions

In addition to its role in divination, the tea plant (Camellia spp.) has long been linked to folk magick and superstition. Burned by Chinese sorcerers to attain wealth, the leaves of the tea plant are often added to money-attracting potions and sachets. Various parts of the tea plant are also used in spells for increasing one's courage and strength, and some modern Witches have been known to use infusions of tea as a base for mixing drinks designed to provoke lust. A magickal method to keep evil spirits from invading a house or barn calls for tea leaves to be sprinkled upon the ground in front of the building's main entrance. This old Pagan custom is said to be still practiced in some parts of the English Midlands.

Spells to Win a Court Case

If you are involved in a court case and are in need of a little magickal assistance, perform any of the following hoodoo spells to ensure that the judge will rule in your favor If mojo magick suits you, anoint either a Chewing John root or the root of a snakeroot plant with three drops of Court Room Oil (a powerful hoodoo oil available in many occult shops and Witchcraft supply catalogues. If you are unable to obtain this particular oil, you may use High John the Conqueror Oil in its place.) Place the root inside a mojo bag and then carry or wear it when you go to court.

Mothers Gypsy Fertility Charm

According to my mother's account, the Gypsy woman first read her palm and then her tea leaves in a cup that was marked all the way around with astrological symbols. After interpreting the signs, she then presented my mother with a small silk pouch that contained a root (which I strongly suspect was from a mandrake plant) and instructed her to keep it with her, day and night, throughout the entire term of her next pregnancy. Desperate to have a child and willing to try just about anything at that point, my mother followed the Gypsy's advice. Two days after Christmas in 1959 as an afternoon snowstorm raged, I finally came screaming and kicking my way into the world. (This, incidentally, is how one of my magickal names, Lady Mandragora, came to be, although my mother always affectionately referred to me as her little witchling.) Not surprisingly, Gypsy folk magick and divination have long been two of my passions. An interest in old Gypsy customs developed early on in my life despite the...

Hoodoo Spell to Draw the Love of Another

On a Friday when the moon is in its waxing phase and the hour of the day or night is ruled by the planet Venus, place a lucky hand root (the root of an orchid plant) in a small jar filled with rose oil. Seal the jar with a lid, and then enchant it by thrice reciting the following magickal incantation Waxing moon and Venus hour, Charge this root with mystic power. To ensure that the enchanted lucky hand root does not lose its magickal potency, be sure to anoint it with three drops of the rose oil every Friday during a Venus-ruled hour. The lucky hand (which is also known as a hand of power, helping hand, and salap) is said to be ruled by Venus and sacred to the goddess after whom this planet is named. It is a popular root among practitioners of hoodoo folk magick in and around the city of New Orleans.

Hops for Prosperity and Good Luck

Many Witches and other magickal practitioners believe that hops possess healing energy vibrations and use the plant's flowers and leaves to stuff healing poppets and sachets. Dried hops are also added to magickal incenses and burned during the casting of spells to help heal many ailments.

Witches Against Onion

To induce dreams of a prophetic nature, place a white onion underneath your pillow before bedtime. This practice is believed to have originated in ancient Egypt, where the onion was at one time regarded as being highly sacred. For protection against evil influences while you sleep, cut an onion in half and keep it close to your bed. Many modern-day practitioners of herbal folk magick continue to subscribe to the old belief that halved or quartered onions work to absorb evil, negativity, and disease.


Of all the herbs associated with dream magick, mugwort is by far the most popular and the most potent. To induce dreams of a prophetic nature, stuff a dream pillow with mugwort leaves and then rest your head upon it to sleep. Other ways in which to induce dreams that reveal the unknown or things that are yet to be include the drinking of mugwort tea and the anointing of the Third Eye chakra with a dab of mugwort juice. Mugwort can also be made into an incense, which, when burned prior to sleeping, aids in astral projection and lucid dreaming, and summons forth dreams that facilitate spiritual and psychic growth.

Love Enchantment

To cast a love enchantment over a particular person, secretly mix a pinch of dried and powdered Beth root into the food or drink of the person whom you desire. (For best results, be sure to do this on a Friday when the moon is waxing.) After consuming it, he or she will soon begin to take an interest in you. However, love magick can only do so much, and it is up to you to win his or her heart.

Apple Tree

Unicorns, according to Pagan folklore, often dwell beneath apple (and ash) trees. Every so often, one or more of these magnificent magickal creatures can be observed eating or wandering about in an apple orchard, especially in the wee morning hours when the countryside is shrouded in a ghostly mist.


In order to be effective in magickal spells, mistletoe must be cut with a single stroke of a gold sickle on the Summer Solstice, the Winter Solstice, or the sixth day after the new moon. Take care not to let the plant touch the earth, lest it be rendered magickally impotent.


Belladonna was a poisonous plant prized by sorcerers of centuries past, who used it to induce psychic visions and astral projections. Known by many as deadly nightshade, belladonna was also a popular ingredient in magickal poisons used by some sorcerers to inflict death or madness upon their enemies and rivals. According to The Warlock's Book by Peter Haining, fourteen of its berries will produce death. Half that number will cause wild excitement and delirium.

Midsummer Herb Lore

Vervain, which is often called the enchanter's plant in reference to its diverse magickal attributes and centuries-old affiliation with folk magick, is traditionally gathered on Midsummer or at the rising of the Dog Star when neither the sun nor the moon are visible. Many traditionalists believe that only at these times will the plant be effective for magickal, amuletic, or divinatory purposes. Midsummer is not only a time for working herbal magick, but herbal divinations as well. One old method to make the vision of one's future husband or wife materialize called for a handful of hemp seeds to be sprinkled while walking nine times clockwise around a church and reciting a special incantation. In order for the divination to work, it needed to be carried out at the midnight hour as Midsummer began.


Also known as hagthorn (due to its long association with Witches), the hawthorn is a very magickal tree that is said to be sacred to the Pagan deities Cardea, Flora, and Hymen. In England it was once believed that the hawthorn was one of the three trees most sacred to the fairy-folk (the others being the oak and the ash). It is customary for many modern Witches to decorate their Beltane altars and May poles with hawthorn. In ancient times, many a superstitious soul believed that hawthorns were actually Witches in disguise. Many Witches were thought to have been able to transform themselves into trees at will by means of magickal spells, or (according to Christians) through the aid of the devil. Others were said to have danced so wildly around the hawthorns in their frenzied rites that they permanently became as one with the tree.

Wolfs Bane

To master invisibility, some sorcerers in the Middle Ages were said to have carried with them a magickal charm consisting of a wolf's bane seed wrapped in the skin of a lizard. It is unknown whether or not this charm helped them to return to their visible state, or if simply willing it was the only thing needed to regain their visibility.

Poison Hemlock

As its name implies, the poison hemlock is a highly toxic plant that, under no circumstances, should be eaten or used in potions intended for human consumption. A good number of sorcerers and sorceresses in the Middle Ages are know to have met their fate experimenting with this magickal, but A plant sacred to the Greek goddess Hecate, hemlock is said to have been used by some Witches of old to induce astral projections and also to render men sexually impotent. The extracted juice from the plant was rubbed onto the blades of ritual daggers and swords for purification and magickal empowerment prior to their use.


Like many of the Old World plants used by practitioners of the Black Arts, henbane was attributed with divinatory powers and employed by those who were masters of the art of prophecy. It was a main ingredient in sorcerer's salves and flying ointments, and many old grimoires indicate that henbane, along with opium and thornapple, were the three banes (poisonous herbs) most favored by devotees of sorcery. Despite its toxicity, henbane was, at one time, an herb also associated with amatory enchantments. Interestingly, it was believed that a woman could be made to fall in love with a man if he wore or carried henbane in a charm bag. However, in order for the plant to work its magick effectively for the sorcerer, he needed to gather it at dawn. It was also imperative that he did it skyclad (nude) and while standing on one foot, according to the late Scott Cunningham in Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs. There is no mention as to why this curious procedure stood on.


Elemental Magick From root and skull to skull and bone, Pyramid to runes of stone, Seeds of magick now be sown And grow for the Maiden, The Mother, and Crone. Storm and fire, land and sea, Enchant this magick rhyme for me. In perfect love these words are stated And in perfect trust created. Now this magick rhyme is done, This charm is fixed and it harms none.


The mandrake (Mandragora officinarum) is perhaps the most magickal of all plants associated with spell casters of old. This highly toxic plant is potent in all forms of enchantment, from the most tender of love spells to the most evil of curses. It has also been used, among other purposes, to divine the future, gain arcane knowledge, awaken or increase a person's clairvoyant powers, attract good luck, lead its master or mistress to the location of buried or hidden treasure, attract money, promote fertility in barren women, and work (reputedly) as a powerful aphrodisiac. The part of the mandrake most commonly employed in magickal workings is the plant's curious human-shaped root. In medieval times, they were often dried, powdered, and then added to ointments that were said to endow Witches with the powers of flight and sorcerers with the powers of invisibility. that a mandrake will work its magick only for the individual who uproots it, thus rendering store-bought roots useless, aside...

Candles Colours and the Zodiac

I said earlier in the book that you would require tools for your magick. That is not quite true in fact, you could practise magick with nothing but a candle. A candle is a self-contained magical system, for although it represents the Fire element, it also containing the other three basic elements of magick Earth is represented by the unburned wax of the candle, Air is the smoke, Fire the flame and Water the melted wax. Thus is created Akasha, or Spirit. These will be the first candles lit in any ritual, either before or immediately after casting a circle. I prefer to light them first, to mark a beginning and an empowerment to the magick and to avoid casting an empty circle, but there are no hard and fast rules. Practitioners of strict ceremonial magick say that you should never use a candle that has been lit for another ritual or purpose and should not use these afterwards for household illumination. However, since candles are so expensive and since you will only be performing...

Working With The Phases

There are eight astronomical phases of the Moon, but magick generally focuses on three that are considered to be particularly significant. The waxing moon As the Moon is increasing in size, it is said to be waxing. The light increases, appearing to spread from right to left, and this phase lasts right until the moment that the Moon becomes completely visible - the full moon. The waxing phase is the time for magick for increase or to attract good things. The more the Moon increases in size, the more powerful become its energies to attract abundance. The full moon The full moon phase, when the whole of the Moon is visible, is the time for the most potent magick, but it lasts for only 24 hours - although, as I have said, most practitioners allow a day on either side.

The Cycle Of The Moon

As I mentioned earlier in the chapter, as well as the months, the phases of the Moon offer scope for different kinds of magick during the individual monthly moon cycles. However, problems in interpretation of these energies can arise because astronomy and astrology are no longer regarded as the same thing. For example, to our ancestors, the astrological Dark of the Moon was the same as the astronomical dark - the first two and a half days of the cycle when the Moon is not visible at any hour of the day or night. of the morning. So when books of magick speak of the new moon, they may mean the time when the crescent first appears in the sky. But if you prefer, you can, as some modern practitioners do, count the Dark of the Moon only as those three last waning days and start new moon magick from the literal calendar day. It's a bit like deciding exactly when a chicken comes to life you don't actually see it until the chicken pops out of the egg but you know it's alive even when it's...

Healing Ritual With Coloured Glass

This method of healing is one of the oldest in traditional folk magick, using the equivalent of the ceremonial elemental substances that I wrote of in Chapter 6. Folk magick was originally based on substances that have comprised the diet of ordinary people for thousands of years. They are all infused symbolically as well as actually with the life force. 10 - Ritual Magick Ritual magick is no different from any other activity that you may carry out in a systematic way. Yes, it is true, it is more formal than folk magick you are using special tools and following a series of preordained steps based on traditional practice. But this does not mean that it has to be so complicated as to be beyond the capabilities of any normal person. You do not need special powers and the preparation is just the same as you would do if you were redecorating a room, servicing your car or preparing your annual accounts. When you decide to do any of these tasks, you set out the necessary equipment in advance,...

Protective Water Ritual

You will need a large crystal or glass bowl for this ritual. Such bowls, frequently used in magick, are often obtainable cheaply from car boot or garage sales. 9 - Healing Magick 9 - Healing Magick Herbs have been used for healing since time immemorial in cultures all over the world. In herbal medicine, the herbs whose properties alleviate a particular illness or state of mind are taken internally or applied to the physical body externally. However, in healing magick, light and healing energies are transmitted through colour, crystals, herbs, oils and incenses and used as a focus for transferring healing energies to trigger the body and mind's own immune system, through visualisation and telepathic waves. In this way, healing magick is akin to spiritual healing. healing light across the cosmos. Healing magick can also be used with your pets, and for more general purposes, such as healing a particular place or the planet. Do note that I am not claiming that the methods of magick...

Six Incense Ritual For Love

In the ritual, I refer to a pentagram, a magical symbol that can be used for attracting energies or closing them down in ritual magick. Its uses can be varied according to the way it is drawn. However, in this ritual, it is the shape that is important, so just imagine the shape as illustrated overleaf, with its single point at the top. Arrange five of your incense sticks as though on the points of this invisible pentagram and put the sixth in the centre as the combination and synthesis of the different powers.

Prehistoric Witchcraft

Early man used sympathetic, or attracting, magick - in the form of dances, chants and cave paintings of animals - to attract the herds of animals that provided for the needs of the group, and to bring fertility to humans and animals alike. Hunters would re-enact the successful outcome of a hunt and would carry these energies into the everyday world. Offerings were made to the Mistress of the Herds and later to the Horned God, who was depicted wearing horns or antlers to display his sovereignty over the herds. Animal bones would be buried so that they, like humankind, would enjoy rebirth from the Earth Mother's womb. Where hunter-gatherers today continue the unbroken tradition that stretches back thousands of years -for example, among the Lapps in the far North of Scandinavia and the Inuits - these rites continue, led by a shaman, or magick man, who negotiates with the Mistress of the Herds or Fish in a trance for the release of the animals. The full moon was also associated in later...

Creating Your Own Spells

Spells for global causes, such as cleansing the oceans, regenerating areas of high unemployment and bringing peace to warring factions are important, and, as I have said, by focusing on wider aims you can attract abundance or harmony into your own life under the Threefold Law of magick. But sometimes you may feel you want to concentrate on a specific personal dream or need. And as I have also said many times in the book, if you are worried or unfulfilled in your own life, you are hardly going to have energy to spare to worry about rainforests. So in this chapter I have listed 12 of my own favourite rituals for a variety of purposes that can easily be adapted for your own opportunities or dilemmas. You can use absolutely anything as a symbol for magick a flower, a leaf, a feather, words or images written or drawn on paper, candles to represent people or objects, Tarot cards, photographs, related miniature versions of the desired acquisition - a key for a new home, a toy car for...

Spring Equinox Sabbat

All sit and, in as comfortable a position as possible, meditate. Think of what seed of an idea you would like to plant, that it may grow into an opportunity. It might be a quality like Patience, or Perseverence, or it might be the opportunity to do or create something. It might be something not for yourself but for another Note You are not here working magick I'll deal with that fully in a later lesson but simply planting a seed in your mind that you can nurture and let grow. Like all seeds, it will need tending, attention and care, to help it develop and finally bloom. When sufficient time has elapsed the bell is rung. PRIEST ESS takes the parchment and pen and writes, at the top, his her seed (try to concentrate it into as few words as possible). The parchment is passed around the Circle and all add their seeds. When it is returned, PRIEST

Very Special Spirituality

And so the Earth was respected as the sacred mother, giver of life and crops, to whose womb the dead returned. It is no accident that the Sioux Medicine Wheel and the Celtic Wheel of the Year are so similar in formation and purpose, linking all life to the cycles of nature. So if we are to use magick in a positive way, we must remember that it brings responsibility along with benefits.

Living By The Seasons

So in these earlier and by no means idyllic times, everything - Earth, cattle, corn, humans and animals -was in harmony, not only physically, but spiritually. Fertility spells and the rituals marking the passing of the year were a natural part of popular folk magick and of the everyday world and with the celebration of the harvest, so blessings were called down on every hearth and home.

The Wheel Of The Year

It is interesting to note that the Wheel of the Year is mirrored almost exactly in the Medicine Wheel, or Circle of Power, that is central to all the magick of the Native American Indians. The spokes of the Medicine Wheel link the celestial, human and natural cycles. The Medicine Wheel was made of stones and could be created wherever a tribe camped. Some were 90 feet in diameter, but research suggests that some were much smaller and were placed around ceremonial tepees to be used not only by the shaman but also by anyone seeking a spiritual path. Depicted around the wheels are totem, or power, animals, representing each birth month and season, the four main directions and winds. The totems vary according to each tribe's mythology. There are more than 500 different systems in North America alone. The energies of the eight major festivals of the Eightfold Year reflect global as well as personal concerns, and our ancestors linked their own fortunes with those of the herds, the soil, the...

Lesson Nine Divination

To the layperson it seems almost magickal that anyone can actually see into the future can divine what is going to happen. The dictionary (Webster's) defines divination as the art of foretelling future events, or discovering things secret or obscure, by the aid of superior beings (the gods ), or by certain rites, experiments, observations, etc. According to this, then, what we see on television or read in the newspaper as the weather forecast should, more correctly, be referred to as the weather prediction Be that as it may, divination is a useful tool and has a definite place in the Craft.

Satanism And The Occult

However, Crowley is also known for his temple, the Abbey of Thelema (a name taken from Rabelais' novel Gargantua and Patitagruel) that he established m Sicily to provide a place where he could pursue his interest in Tantrism and sex magic. His sexual activities and drug-taking with his disciples caused scandal which he appears to have enjoyed, since throughout his life he courted publicity for his iconociasm, referring to himself with pride as 'the wickedest man in the world'. His upbringing among the Plymouth Brethren was said to have inspired in him a passionate hatred of Christianity which he aimed to destroy, identifying himself with the Egyptian God Seth,4 with the Greek Pan and with Satan, and also calling himself 'The Great Beast'. This last ride comes from Revelations, from which he also, took the number 666 to be his personal number. Rather than being a satanist in the sense of worshipping the Devil, Crowley idendfied himself with the arch-antagonist in the Christian cosmos,...

The Conjuration of Vassago

Key Solomon Wand And Witches

Necromancy does not call for the use of your show stone, but rather a triangle of manifestation, so I shall leave that process till last, and deal with the conjuration of nonhuman entities first. The entity summoned for questioning par excellence is one that has been a favourite among witches from time immemorial, and is known by the name Vassago. He is numbered among the seventy-two demonic intelligences in that medieval grimoire, the Lemegeton, or Lesser Key of Solomon and Wierus, Cornelius Agrippa's pupil, also mentions him in his Pseudomonarchia Demonorum.

To Cause Internal Change

Both antidepressants and morphine are useful to the healing process when they are used correctly. Both can be very dangerous to your health if they are used incorrectly. However, I have never seen a commercial advertising the latest designer morphine. Some people do have chemical imbalances that need to be addressed, but mystery drug commercials are not aimed at the sick they are aimed at the healthy for the purpose of causing psychosomatic illness. Each is its own little magickal attack on your mind for the purpose of profit. Remembering that religion and magick are not the separate things that the Western world has insisted, you can see the significance of the association between the aura and levels of magickal skill. The greater our mind becomes, the more intense our aura becomes. The aura is very real. It can be photographed, measured, and quantified. But there is absolutely no evidence that it has the ability to protect the mind or body any better than a circle on the ground....

Of all the Gods and Spirits of Abomination, KUTULU only cannot be summoned, for he is the Sleeping Lord.

Popular false moral You should never cast a love spell on a particular person because that is robbing their free will

The person who came up with this gem must have checked his reality at the door. If you have a date with a particular person, would it be wrong to prepare a meal that you know she is particularly fond of Is it wrong to take her to a movie that she particularly likes Maybe you overheard her talking to a girlfriend about her favorite scents. Would it be wrong to wear those particular scents If it is not wrong to be particular in the real world, then it is not wrong to be particular in the magickal world because they are one in the same Love is a curious thing. So much so, that when it comes to magickal ethics, more has probably been written about love spells than spells with any other focus. This is very surprising in a society where it is said that all is fair in love and war. Again, we see the double standard. Is all fair in love and war except when using magick How about electricity All is fair in love and war except when using electricity What about using fire and gravity If you are...

Judith Phillips Cunning Woman

Traditionally, cunning men and women came into their craft by heredity, such as James MuRRELL, one of England's most famous cunning men. Others acquired their gifts by supernatural intervention, such as from FAIRIEs or the dead, or from divine intervention. Some, in fact, were revered in earlier times as semi-divine. Their abilities were from their gifts and knowledge, or cunning, as opposed to any particular holy status in the church. The magic they practiced was a home-made amalgam of Christian prayers and rites mixed with pagan material, folk magic and occultism. Folk magical arts were passed along in oral tradition, embroidered, embellished and changed as time passed. Cunning men and women who could read possessed various magical texts, including famous grimoires such as The Greater Key of Solomon (see grimoires) or the Fourth Book of Agrippa.

Oya is the African goddess, also known as Yoruba, who rules the winds and so controls the winds of change.

She can be invoked at times of change and for all matters of employment, commerce good fortune and taking control of one's destiny. A Practical Guide to Witchcraft and Magick Spells.

The Mechanics Of Witchcraft

Magick takes place at what TS Eliot in The Four Quartets called the 'still point of the turning world', that moment of timelessness that enables thought to be turned into reality on the material plane. Evocations were performed by medieval practitioners of magick to summon up angels (and sometimes demons) and bind them to perform tasks, rather like the Middle Eastern djinn, or genie, who, in faerie tales, would appear from a magick lamp or corked bottle and grant wishes. Incense would be used to give substance to the etheric form of the angel or demon concerned. (Modem magick tends to be a little wary of calling up spirits, however, whose malevolent energies may cause harm.) Thus medieval occultists sought mastery over the elemental beings that they fashioned by their incantations. Sometimes, if practitioners used the elemental forces for negative purposes, they would create a tulpa, or thought form, that became an elemental demon. This was hard to banish, even though the magicians...

The Hierarchies and Functions of Demons

Collin Plancy

Of Solomon appeared, describing Solomon's magic ring for commanding the djinn and listing the names and functions of various Hebrew, Greek, Assyrian, Babylonian, Egyptian and perhaps Persian demons. Christian demo-nologists of the 16th and 17th centuries catalogued demons into hierarchies of hell and ascribed to them attributes and duties, including ambassadorships to various nations. JoHANN weyer, who devised the most complex hierarchy, estimated that there were 7,405,926 demons serving under 72 princes. The grimoires of ceremonial magic also give their own hierarchies. Some of the major demons important to witchcraft cases are Asmodeus migrated into Christian lore, becoming one of the Devil's leading agents of provocation. Witches were said to worship him, and magicians and sorcerers attempted to conjure him to strike out at enemies. Grimoires admonish anyone seeking an audience with Asmodeus to summon him bareheaded out of respect. Weyer said Asmodeus also ruled the gambling...

Setting Up Your Altar

When you are not carrying out formal magick, keep on the altar any crystals that are of personal significance to you (see page 153). You might wish to have a clear crystal quartz for pure energy, a blue lapis lazuli flecked with gold for wisdom, a purple amethyst and rose quartz for healing and harmony, or a gleaming, golden-brown tiger's eye for grounding. You can also keep different herbs there according to your current focus.

Lady Olwen See Wilson Monique

Lady Sheba gained attention with the publication of The Magick Grimoire, a collection of excerpts from her personal workbook of spells and RITuALs, some of them handed down through her family. Her second book, The Book of Shadows, published in 1971, was controversial in the Wiccan community. The Book of Shadows comprised laws, revised Gardnerian rituals and descriptions of sabBATs, information traditionally supposed to be kept secret among Witches. By making it public, Lady Sheba was accused of violating that tradition. She defended her decision to publish the book, saying she had been directed by the Goddess to do so.

The Four Quarters Of The Circle

Every magical circle is divided into four quarters that are in ceremonial magick called the Watchtowers. The higher essences who protect the quarters are invoked as the Guardians, who control and direct the elemental powers. Sometimes they are called Kings, sometimes Devas, or they may be pictured as the four main archangels, Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel. How you perceive your guardians in the ritual circle is up to you. As with all magick, there are disagreements about which archangel represents each element. This is because angels are found in a number of different traditions and religions and so may serve different functions under similar names. Previously, I have associated Raphael with the North and Uriel with the East, seeing Raphael in his aspect as a healer and protector, and Uriel as the fiery dawn in the East. However, recently I have started to use a more traditional association of Raphael as the messenger in the East and Uriel as sentinel of the North and I have...

Defining magic (or magick as those who want to disassociate themselves from stage magicians spell it) is a long and complex task.

Healing Ritual For An Absent Person

Through magick, a concentrated dosage of healing power is offered, based on a particular healing herb charged with the energies of the sender, but without any absorption of the actual substance. So, rather than making a tea or tincture, you use empowered herbs. This is a way of sending herb power to any person or creature without the need to worry about medical exclusions and correct quantities. 7 - Oils and Incenses in Magick 7 - Oils and Incenses in Magick

Warnings and Ethics in Wiccan Spellcraft

A few of these books contain lists of magickal ethics that are absolutely hilarious. If you believe magick is real, why would you need a set of ethics other than the ethics that you have already acquired for dealing with the real world Ultimately, what you have been told matters very little, because you will probably do what you will anyway. Ethics simply do not make a difference unless they are your ethics. How many laws would you obey if not for the potential of jail or fines If the morals of your religion are compatible with your personal ethics, then they are much more than a set of rules. They are your magickal warnings. They warn you when you are getting too close to an issue that will distract the mind from your intent. Unlike speed limits and stop signs, there is always a witness present when you break one of your own rules. You are that witness, you are the judge, and in very extreme situations you are the executioner. No one can be completely...

Wiccan Rituals And Ethics

Wiccans believe in polarity rather than a single godhead, both in magick and in life. Evil is therefore not a separate demonic force to be eradicated, and the darker aspects of life emanate as a result of alienation from the natural order of things. However, even those things that are bad can act as catalysts for change death and endings are as much part of the cycle of life as are birth and beginnings. Dark and light, night and day, positive and negative, destruction and creation are two sides of the same coin, a principle that finds expression in Eastern Taoism and underpins the ancient Chinese Ching (The Book of Changes), often used for divination. Negativity can be transformed into healing energies through positive ritual.

If you do not want to use the Goddess as a focus for your magick, you can substitute the word 'god' or say 'golden radiance bright'. You can also create your own chant, if you prefer, that may change from line to line, or use a simple mantra, such as 3 - Beginning Magick You can create magick in all kinds of ways and you can use it for an almost infinite variety of purposes. Your magick can be solitary or group-based, self-centred or entirely altruistic. It can be personal and informal, or it may be framed in rigid ceremony. But whatever kind of magick you wish to practise, you will need to create a special place to work in, a personal area at home for your private healing and personal development work.

Thar be big demons here

I am amazed and baffled at how many Wiccans try to cast spells completely uninhibited by the laws of physics and the other natural laws that science has uncovered. Setting aside the very obvious magickal guideline that there is strength in numbers, there are still thousands upon thousands of obvious guidelines that are also ignored. Throwing a snowball at a tank just doesn't produce dramatic results. If you want to get rid of that tank, try climbing the mountain next to it and rolling a snowball towards the tank. Remember that one war cry is all it takes to cause an avalanche. In order to cause external change, you must first identify what it is that you want to change. There is a magickal teaching that says when you know a thing's true name, then you have power over it. If that true name is its description, that magickal teaching is correct. This is the process of determining its strengths and

Protective Ritual With Empowered Salt

* Place the salt in a small ceramic dish on your altar and light a pure beeswax candle at the four main compass points around the edges of the altar. Beeswax has a long tradition in magick it was sacred to the Mother Goddess and later the Virgin Mary. Demeter, goddess of the grain, was called Queen Bee and Aphrodite's symbol at her hive-shaped shrine in Eryx was a gold honeycomb. Her high priestess was always called Melissa, Latin for bee. If you cannot obtain beeswax candles, use plain white candles and place a tiny dish of honey to the right of the salt. Since the honey will also be empowered, you can absorb the protective magick by using it in a drink or sandwich.

Herbal Poppets And Sachets

Herbal Magic Spells

Poppets, which are used mainly in love or healing or occasionally in protective magick, are generally kept in a safe place, such as a drawer, rather than carried around. So, for a love spell, two poppets would be tied together and placed in a drawer in a bedroom or left out on the window ledge in the moonlight, especially around the time of the full moon. For fertility, a miniature poppet might be placed in a tiny woven cradle on the window ledge from the new to the full moon. It would then be wrapped in silk until the end of the moon cycle and kept in an enclosed space, for example, a large painted egg made of pottery or wood. The would-be father would make the cradle and the mother would sew and fill the doll. The associations for healing and magick are the same whether you use incense, essential oil or the herbal form of a substance. These are just different ways of releasing the energies. Incense, for

To Cause Etheric Change

In terms of magick, ether is the substance by which all things are created. It is also called spirit and Akasha. The top point of the Wiccan pentagram represents ether because it is said to triumph over the physical elements. In Wiccan ritual, ether is the force that brings Air (masculine) to Earth (feminine), Fire (masculine) to Water (feminine), and Lord to Lady. We do not need such shadows. Our magick and our demons come from within. According to the etheric theory, all motion is absolute because it passes through a specific amount of ether. Because light maintains a constant speed, light will pass through any specific amount of ether in the same amount of time, regardless of the vantage point to the event. This scientific theory falls apart when you toss in vantage points and their relationship to movement. Uncle Al's theory became widely known as the theory of relativity. Recent movies and other fiction have advanced the idea that although natural laws cannot be broken, they can...

Planetary Magical Days Of The Week

The planets have had a special place in both ritual magick and astrology, since the Ancient Babylonians and Chaldeans first observed them wandering across the sky (the word 'planet' derives from the Greek planetes, meaning 'wanderer') against the fixed constellations of the zodiac. The ancients knew of only five planets - Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. Uranus, Neptune and Pluto were discovered only after the invention of the telescope and so have not assumed the importance in magick that they have in astrology. What is more, the first astronomers also counted the Sun and the Moon as planets and credited them with certain qualities that have become woven into the Western astrological and magical traditions. Astrologers believe that the positions of the planets in the zodiac at the time of an individual's birth can influence and indicate that person's fate. In magick, the planetary strengths can be applied to any purpose under the As above, so below' principle that stresses...

Ritual With Seven Angels

Suddenly, seasonal magick made a great deal of sense, for if you do live by natural light, then in winter, with its long and cold nights, your body will slow down and your priorities will become food, rest and warmth, needs expressed magically in the ancient festivals of winter.

Creating Sacred Space

Once the physical boundaries of a temple have been set, the area will be prepared spiritually. The act of preparing an area for ritual work is called creating sacred space, and it is an essential part of all Wiccan ceremonies. The act of creating sacred space takes the form of casting or constructing a magick circle an invisible psychic barrier. This is done in order to create the proper environment for spiritual and magickal rites. When the magick circle has been created, it will protect the individuals within its boundary from outside negative influence. The circle also serves to contain the energy raised within it until the time of release. The casting of the magick circle is accomplished in two parts the consecration of the elements (salt and water), and the psychic projection of energy onto the marked circle line. These two actions produce a sacred space and proper atmosphere for a ritual. It is important to understand that as you project the energy onto the physical circle line,...
