A New Moon For Transformation And Healing

A New Moon For Transformation And Healing

Today is the New Moon. During this powerful Crone phase, along with divinations, witches work magick that is transformational in nature. With the Moon in Leo, I plan to perform a healing ritual this evening. Divination is also wonderful to include in a New Moon healing ritual and as customary, I drew four runes to […]

Some Thoughts on Using Magick Squares and Seals

Some Thoughts on Using Magick Squares and Seals

Witches and magicians utilize gods and goddesses along with other entities in their magickal workings, rituals, and ceremonial magick. Enochian magick is one such example where angels are summoned for this or that purpose. The entities called by King Solomon were not actually demons but in my opinion interdimensional beings. Still, witches and magicians down […]

Ritual For Unity Of Purpose

Ritual For Unity Of Purpose

Sometimes we become scattered, each one of us off on our own path, unable to come together in unity with others. And yet we instinctively know that together we can accomplish far more than we can alone. Even when we have a clear responsibility to each other, we still find it difficult to come together […]

A Witch Needs No Explanation

White versus Grey versus Black. Last time I looked, a witch needs no explanation. Look, I understand identifying with a title that references your tradition. I identify with Druidry, Hedgewitchery, and the Völur. Typically I call myself a Hedgewitch if I’m pressed to define myself. But I don’t identify with white, black or grey, although […]

Alignment Magick: a Runecasting

In the center of the runecasting sits a witch rune. The Star represents desire, and since magick is desire made manifest, it seemed appropriate for this runecasting. The runes from the Elder Futhark surrounding the witch rune signify the energies required for casting her intentions. The three above the witch rune are nonphysical energies and […]

The Planning of a Spell

I take days to plan a spell. Unless I don’t have the luxury to do so of course. But I like to think about what I wish to accomplish and to be certain of my motivation for doing it in the first place. Typically my spells focus on illumination or enlightenment. That and healing, although […]

Aligning With Goddess Presence: A Runecasting

I cast the runes this evening to look at elemental influences for the coming month. With Raidho as significator, Nauthiz begins the casting in the position of Spirit. Moving deocil, Laguz is positioned at Elemental Water, Jera at Elemental Fire, Othala at Elemental Earth, and Perthro at Elemental Air. Two bindrunes are placed above and […]

Witch Notes: Knot Magick

I really like using knot spells. I prefer soft leather to anything else, otherwise I use hemp cord that’s been braided to create a cord of more substance. The number of cords I use ranges from one for something simple to more if I need to influence something more complex, weaving each together with the […]

As Life Unfolds..A Runecasting

  I like elemental influences and using a pentagram spread is wonderful to look at the interaction between the runes themselves and the elemental position they occupy. Looking over the runecasting, it appears that partnership and new beginnings are what immediately stand out. That, and the fact that four of the runes represent Elemental Water. […]
