The Witches Digest for Wednesday, August 30 – (Part 2 )

Current Moon Phase for August 30th

Waxing Gibbous
Illumination: 61%

The Moon today is in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts round 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible though most of the night sky setting a few hour before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has it’s roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Witchcraft by Encyclopedia.com

Witchcraft

The word “witchcraft” derives from the Saxon wicca, some-times translated as “wise person” but more accurately derived from an Indo-European root, “weik,” that produced words in various Western languages related to magic, religion, and divination. Currently, the word is used to designate a variety of very different but vaguely related phenomena including, but not limited to, (1) the magical/religious practitioners in a variety of third world pre-industrial societies; (2) the Satanism described in the anti-witchcraft books beginning in the late fifteenth century in Europe; (3) the Neopagan followers of Wicca,the religion started by Gerald B. Gardner in the 1940s; and (4) individuals (primarily female) who are reputed to have psychic abilities.

Weekend Blow Out Special

August 26 – 27

When we do well, we like to treat you. Because if it wasn’t for you the store wouldn’t be thriving and exceeding all our expectations. So this weekend we decided to throw in a little extra treat we just got in…..

This beautiful Soapstone Oil diffuser

 

This diffuser is beautiful on your altar as well as on your coffee table, kitchen table, any place you want to use it. It uses a small votive candle to warm your essential oils and favorite fragrances. The candle has been spaced just far enough that the aroma lasts for hours. I know I got three or four and I love it to pieces. It is hand carved of soapstone with great care, this oil diffuser is decorated with small cut outs of pentagrams, making it into a beautiful display of light from the candle within. 3 1/2″ x 3″. It is small enough the pentagrams are discreet and it will look great on your altar or any other spot in your home.

As a thank you for making our “New Magical Necessities” a hit, it is free with any purchase this weekend. Forget the smudge sticks for these two days, we are giving you something that will last the rest of your life and be a reminder of your faith and your friends at Magickal Necessities, the WOTC and Coven Life.

You only have two days, so hurry and get that order in. This promotion will end 12:00 Sunday night.

Only at Magickal Necessities

We Are Making Your Magickal Life A Little Easier……

Witches Of The Craft®

Sorry about the Digest today, after our road trip, I had to go get the oil changed in the car. When I got back, nothing had been done, so I added a few new things to your store. We are trying to make your magickal life easier, really! Yesterday, I mentioned we had some herbal mixes. These mixes are for various spells and contain the appropriate herbs needed for that spell. No more running to the store, ordering here, there and every place else to get what you need. For your convenience, we have bundled up the herbs for those spells in neat little packages. Right now, we have about 15 different herbal mixes in the store, we still have about 15 more to go. But when it is all said and done, we will have a herbal mix for any kind of spell you could possibly want. Right now…

Some Thoughts for Today

May this solar eclipse bring you blessings of love, peace, and harmony.

While everyone is talking about the total solar eclipse and the way it will change the energy we feel and/or use, I felt it was important to explain part of the energy shift and what brings it about.

Many of you have heard or read about the tradition of The Great Rite usually performed on Beltane and has its origins in prehistory, wait let me rephrase that to read, it has its origins when all traditional rites/rituals were handed down orally from priest to priest, priestess to priestess, druid to druid, etc. The Great Rite is the coupling of a high priest and high priestess, whether physically or symbolically, to ensure the ground is fertile to give nourishment to and accept the seeds planted to bring about a bountiful harvest.

The total eclipse is the celestial coupling and marriage of the Sun God to the Moon Goddess. As these eclipses only happen during a new Moon which is a time for rebirth, renewal and starting new things in your life after ridding yourself of negative things in your life during the waning and Dark Moon. Use this time for new beginnings in your life whether they be forgiving someone from an old grudge (which frees you from the negativity of that grudge as well) to kicking a bad habit, to do some deep soul searching for negative things you are holding onto not just from this lifetime but pasts one as well, to trying to get a job or spending more time with your loved ones and less time at work or well any number of things. This is a journey of renewal that you take alone with your spirit guides unless you ask some type of spiritual counselor to help guide you through this journey. So you have the symbolical marriage of all the gods and goddesses along with their consummation of the marriage when the Moon completely covers the Sun, and the Moon phases that promote new growth, you have a lot of potent energy at your disposal to get rid of the old and bring in the new.

So during the eclipse you have the symbolical marriage of all the gods and goddesses along with the consummation of their marriage when the Moon completely covers the Sun, and the Moon phases that promote new growth, you have a lot of potent energy at your disposal to get rid of the old and bring in the new.

Another thing that makes the eclipse special is it falls at the time when Leo, whose planet is the Sun, comes roaring in with its fire. Fire is cleansing element to help rid you of the negativity you are carrying even if it is deep inside of you right down to your cellular level. Just as we leave Cancer and the twin nature of the duality of male and female we all carry inside of us. This is a time where each of us can easily look at the God and Goddess we carry inside ourselves and celebrate all aspects of our human and higher selves.

On thing I would strongly suggest you do not try to do today is astral or Otherworld traveling as the different planes of exsistence over lap and it can be hard to get back to the phyiscal plane of existence we live in. On the other hand is it a great day or eveing for divination and your guides maybe able to show you things and answer questions you may have more clearly.

May whatever you are seeking to change come about in a positive way for you.

May the Lady and Lord watch over and help you dear ones.
