Incense and tinctures of the Gods

Every Wiccan ritual includes an invitation to the Lord and Lady. Many times, this takes the generic form of Father Sky and Mother Earth. This is fine if the ceremony has a generic theme. Thus is the case when you bring together people from many different traditions whose focus might be much separate from your own. Allowing all members of your circle to view the Lord and Lady with their own eyes is always preferable in such situations.

Spellcraft is not one of those situations. When we cast a spell, we do so with very clear (non-generic) intent. Once your intent is clear, pick the archetype associated with that intent. Chapter 9 lists many of my favorite male archetypes and their general associations. This information is limited for obvious reasons. Consider reading The Witch's God by Janet and Stewart Farrar. When you are comfortable with your choice of archetype for a particular effort, replace your normal ritual incense with one better suited to favor the attendance of that deity.

Remember also that spellcraft is not always conducted with the formality of ritual. Each of these incenses can be burned, bundled into sachets ("mojo/gris gris bags"), or used in tincture form whenever you wish to strengthen your bonds to these archetypes. These blends are designed not only to honor the god form, but to help you find their pattern within your own psyche.
