The Winter Solstice: What Needs To Be Born?

At the Winter Solstice the sun dies and the sun is reborn. It is the shortest day, the longest night, and the farthest south the sun will rise and set on the horizon (in the Northern Hemisphere, that is). This makes the Winter Solstice an auspicious time for beginnings of all sorts, and it is no surprise that it is the birthday of many Gods and heroes.

What needs to be born at this year’s Winter Solstice?

It is time to get the WOTC up and running again

Witches Of The Craft®

An up-date on Lady of the Abyss first, she is starting to be weaned off her morphine. Which is good but they intend to let her stay on it and do the weaning because they have started to try therapy.  She made small progress yesterday. She was able to get up and stand on with the aid of a walker. She didn’t stand long because of the intense pain. I have been trying to lighten her spirits. I told her if anything ever happened to her, I was going to resell all the metal she now had in her body. That did not go over well. She told me to shut up. When she landed on that side, all the metal in that leg was twisted and moved out of place. The doctor started at her foot and used microscopic surgery to put the rods and screws back in the…

Poppets

Timing:

This spell is to be started in the waning cycle of the Moon and repeated every Monday for seven weeks. Begin during the hour of the Moon.

Supplies:

an astral candle for the Petitioner

white day candle

three light blue candles inscribed “patience”

three green candles inscribed “health”

one of the following incenses: bay or thyme or juniper berries with rosemary

one of the following oils: cinnamon, myrtle, and olive oil or carnation, rosemary, and sandalwood.

a poppet stuffed with verbena (vervain) and cloves;

a brown wool or brown silk ribbon (21 inches long)

a dish

Directions:

The Poppet, representing the Petitioner, should be made ahead of time and stuffed with verbena and cloves. Breathe deeply and build your ball of protective light.

Before performing this spell take a bath with frankincense, rose geranium, and rosemary or clove, or frankincense, rosemary, and sandalwood oils and/or herbs. While soaking in your ritual bath, meditate on the whole ritual, concentrating on being free of the bad habit.

Enter the Circle in the hour of the Moon on the first Monday and stand, kneel, or sit before the altar. Light the incense. When the Oil, dress the Altar Candles and the Day Candle, while concentrating on the purpose of the ritual. Light your taper; then from that, light the Altar Candles and Day Candle. State your intent:

I am here to help overcome a bad habit;

to gain full control of my life

and to live it to the full,

with love and enjoyment.

With an Awl, inscribe the Petitioner’s name on the Astral Candle, then dress the candle with Oil. With your taper, light the Petitioner Candle and say:

This is me, who has the strength

to overcome all negativity.

Let my spirit burn as surely

as does this flame;

a symbol of the inner strength

that will prevail in all things.

Take up the Censer and swing it, censing the whole area around the altar, while rhythmically repeating the key words “No More!” and building up the energy to that focus. Replace the Censer. Take up the Poppet and hold it in the smoke of the Censer. Say:

I name this Poppet (your name).

It is me in every way.

Anything I do to this Poppet

I do to myself.

With the length of wool or ribbon, bind the Poppet, tying its arms and legs tightly to the body. Again hold the Poppet in the smoke of the incense. Say:

Here is me as I am now;

bound by a habit that I would break.

As time passes,

the bonds will fall away and I will be free.

Place the Poppet on the left side of the candles. With the Awl, inscribe the Light Blue #1 Candle with the word “Patience”. Dress it with oil. Light the Light Blue #1 Candle and say:

Here do I light the first Lamp of Patience,

knowing that a long-held habit

cannot be broken overnight.

May this light ease the burden of

the habit that is still strong.

With the Awl, inscribe the Green #1 Candle with the word “Health”. Dress it with Oil. Light the Green #1 Candle and say:

Here is the Health that will be

improving as the habit is lost.

It will grow and burn steadily as the flame,

bringing peace and joy to me.

With the Awl, inscribe the Light Blue #2 Candle with the word “Patience”. Dress it with Oil. Light the Light Blue #2 Candle and say:

Here do I light the second lamp of Patience,

knowing that a long-held habit

cannot be broken overnight.

May this light add to the first

and ease the burden of the

habit that is still strong.

With the Awl, inscribe the Green #2 Candle with the word “Health”. Dress it with Oil. Light the Green #2 Candle and say:

Here is the Health that will be

improving as the habit is lost.

It will grow and burn steadily as these flames,

bringing peace and joy to me.

With the Awl, inscribe the Light Blue #3 Candle with the word “Patience”. Dress it with Oil. Light the Light Blue #3 Candle and say:

Here do I light the third Lamp of Patience,

knowing that a long-held habit

cannot be broken overnight.

May these three lights ease

the burden of the habit

that is still strong.

With the Awl, inscribe the Green #3 Candle with the word “Health”. Dress it with Oil. Light the Green #3 Candle and say:

Here is the total Health that

improves as the habit flees.

It grows and burns steadily,

bringing peace and joy to me.

Take up the Censer and swing it, again censing the whole area around the altar, while rhythmically repeating the Key Words “No More!” and building up the energy to that focus. Replace the Censer.

Sit quietly in meditation, seeing yourself free of the habit and living happily in love and enjoyment. Extinguish the candles in reverse order.

For the following weeks, repeat the ritual leaving the Poppet bound, on the left side of the candles, as it was after the first time through the ritual. Simply repeat the section as follows:

Hold the Poppet in the smoke of the incense. Say:

Here I am as I am now,

bound by a habit that I would break.

As time passes the bonds will fall away

and I will be free.

Lay the Poppet on the left of the Candles.

On the final week, repeat the ritual, but when you light the Light Blue #3 Candle, say:

Here do I light the third Lamp of Patience

knowing that the long-held habit of (name)

is finally broken.

May the light from these lamps

shine forward on a life of love and joy!

Take up the Poppet and unbind it. Say:

Here once again am I,

now free and unencumbered.

The habit has gone and

life is full and happy once again.

Lay the ribbon/wool in the dish and burn it. With the Awl, inscribe the Green #3 Candle with the word “Health”. Dress it with Oil. Light the Green #3 Candle and say:

Here is the total Health

now complete and whole.

The habit is fled;

gone never to return.

As these candles burn steadily,

so my life is steady and robust,

with peace, joy and love.

Take up the Censer and cense the entire area. Sit quietly and contemplate life without the habit, knowing it to be full, healthy, and happy. Extinguish the candles in reverse order.

Helping Lady A Recover

Let me start with the very true fact that Coven Life’s Coven or school would not be here if Lady A did not have more faith in me being able to run a daily website. So all my students and visitors to our coven gatherings say a prayer of thanks for Lady A.

Many of you have seen the posts asking for donations for Lady A because her home is nothing more then ashes now. A little over a year ago there was an appeal for help for her because she was in a horrific auto accident and it was touch and go whether she would live or not. Lady A healed well from that accident over time because she had her home to return to than.

Her home was taken from her by an allege arsonist and stalker.When she was forced to jump out of a second story window with her faithful companion she rebroke her left leg in numerous places, this leg had been shattered in the auto accident. Lady A has no home to return to this time to recover!

I am not asking you to send in large donation even $1.00 to $5.00 will help. There are literally thousands of followers between Witches of The Craft and Coven Life so if each of us sent in this small amount once or weekly we can help Lady A rebuild her life and home.

If you have PayPal scroll down to the post with the donate button. If you do not have PayPal below is an address to send donations and if you want to a card.

The WOTC

Attn: Kit

P. O. Box 331

Kevil, KY 42053

One last thing it is not just Lady A who lost her home after Mistress of the Myst crossed into the Summerlands a couple of months ago Lady A took on the responsibility of her 2 sons. Needless to say there are three people floating on a raft in raging water that need a life line.

For Those Without PayPal & Wish to Send Cards or Cash to Lady A

Witches Of The Craft®

It was called to my attention that some do not have PayPal. They wanted an address to send cards and cash donations to Lady A. I will post that in just a minute. I want you to know that I know there are good people in the WOTC. I know there are individuals here who care about and actually love Lady A as I do. If it wasn’t for these individuals the WOTC wouldn’t have survived for all these years. To those of you who have supported the WOTC and Lady A, I apologize. I made the comment just a minute ago to Marcia, I should have went through the past donations and purchases before I made my comment. That way I could have stated the names that my comments were not intended for. Again, I apologize to you and I seldom apologize.

I got my ass jumped by a…

An Introduction & Up-date on Lady Abyss

Witches Of The Craft®

I am Eleanor. I come from the Bayous of Louisiana, I believe you have heard me referred to as the Swamp Witch from Lady A. I have been with her, Lord M and Mystie for the past 30 years. I also grew up with them. My mother and I left Kentucky and went to Louisiana when I was a teenager. My mother was a practicing witch and taught me everything I know. In later years, I ran into an old bayou witch who was getting ready to pass on. This witch had no one to pass on her talents or belongings to except me. She became a second mother to me. After she passed, I took up her path and followed the teachings of her ways. To be truthfully, I am not a nice witch at all. I am not like Lady A. I came back to Kentucky when I…

Chill out…

Hi my Beloveds here again with another easy peasy chill out spell.. all my ❤️ Sat Nam … 🌛🌕🌜🙏❤️

Supplies:

Small jar with cap

twine or string – preferably red

one fava bean to represent the Lord (or draw a phallus on paper)

rose petals to represent the Lady

frankincense and myrrh (powdered), rosemary, and any other herb that “feels right” to you. (i.e. rue, wormwood, etc. for bindings or exorcisms)

olive oil or salad oil

banishing scented oil

a couple of colored markers or pens

paper

enough water to fill the jar three-fourths full.

Directions:

Erect your circle of protection.

Take your bottle and place it on the altar. Take the piece of paper and draw a “gingerbread type” doll and write the name of the person or situation you are binding on it. Talk to the paper doll and tell it all of the things that it has done to disappoint and hurt you. Anoint it with the banishing oil, drawing a Pentagram on it with the oil. Now, place a fava bean, drawing of a phallus, or amber in the jar along with the rose petals and other herbs. As you place each item in the jar state, state with feeling:

I bind you from harming me or anyone else

with this (person’s name here).

Take the doll or dolls in hand and the string. Fold the doll/dolls into a square, and begin wrapping the doll in the string. With each wrapping, state:

Once around, securely bound,

now’s the time for cooling down.

When you are through, securely knot the string a minimum of 3 times. While you are chanting this, see the person securely tied with sturdy ropes, and gagged. You might even draw a gag around the figures.) Now place the doll in the jar and pour about a teaspoon of oil over the doll. As you are dribbling it over the doll, state:

I place sacred oil all around you,

about you and below you,

to make your path slippery

while you violate the Rede

and Law of Three.

Now fill the jar 3/4 ‘s full of water, place it in the freezer of your refrigerator, and repeat:

Time to chill out, chill out, chill out.

Bound around and about.

I place around you (person’s name)

the crystal sphere of the Mother’s Orb,

mirrored on the inside so that you

will have to see yourself as you are

at every moment until you surrender and

change your behavior towards yourself and

those around you into a more positive

behavior pattern.

I ask the Lady to empower this spell and

insure it’s working, only if it is in the

highest and best good of all concerned.

As I will it, so mote it be!

Close the freezer and leave that puppy there until you are satisfied that the person will not hurt anyone else. This person is contained from hurting you and anyone else, and is “chilling out”. Do not worry about them any longer. Write out how you felt about this person/situation before now, including what they did to you, and how you feel right now. This will allow you to get the worst of the anger, disillusion, disappointment out of your system so that you won’t become ill from the feelings. Smudge your house afterwards, and draw a Pentagram on each window and door in your house, including your computer monitor (if you have one) and all mirrors, stating:

I ward thee to keep harm at bay.

As I will it, so mote it be.

Magick Mirror

Sometimes we just need to take another look!!

Awwwww yes, your Beautiful!!’

1 small, handheld mirror

3 candles

Rose oil

Patchouli incense

A little privacy

Select one color for the strongest effect, or mix and match to get a bit of each:

Red if you are going for sex appeal

Silver if you want to be the center of attention and display star-quality charisma

Orange if you are going for general attractiveness and likeability.

The ritual:

On a night when the moon is full, find a secluded outdoor spot. Light your incense and your three candles. Disrobe and anoint the parts of your body you would like to change with the rose oil. For example, if you think your feet are too big, anoint the tops of each foot. If you are going for an all over make-over, then anoint your forehead, your breast bone, the center of your belly, each wrist and behind each knee. Pass the mirror through the smoke of the incense, then raise it over your head, reflective surface facing the moon.

Recite:

Wood and Wind, Ember and Mist

Grant your blessed child’s wish

Sacred Mother charge this mirror

Let your light make beauty clearer

Wrap it in your gentle glow

So that tis all it ever shows.

Lower the mirror and gaze into it. Visualize the way you wish to look, and how you want others to see and react to you. Repeat the following:

As a blossom in your glade

Let my beauty never fade.

Now, use the mirror’s reflective surface to shine the moonlight on the place(s) you would like to make more pleasing to the eye. When you are done, wrap the mirror in a dark cloth and keep it safe. If the mirror is ever broken, so also will be the spell. Snuff the candles, dress and let the incense burn out.

Nightmares

Sat Nam everyone, I get asked a lot if I have a Spell ,chant or mantra to stop nightmares so here you go, a little something to do to stop the dreams… sleep peacefully and set up a routine to get sleep.. create your room as a beautiful peaceful enchanting sacred space.. stay blessed!! Sat nam🙏❤️.

~ Stregga. 💋💋💋 💤 💤 💤

•A white candle

•A white or silver ribbon (it should be long enough to fit your wrist)

•A piece of silver, an object made of silver that you don’t constantly wear on yourself and sleep with it (a ring you don’t wear, a silver cup, even a silver spoon)

Sit in the dark in your bedroom, put the ribbon around the candle, light the candle and put it someplace opposite to your face. Watch the flame burning for couple of minutes and relax then close your eyes and imagine beautiful scenes which are, in your mind, related to emotions of happiness and peace. It could be anything it’s quite an individual thing. Meditate for as long as you wish. When you feel relaxed and able to focus on one single thing, approach the window, holding the burning candle in your hands and look at the moon. If you can’t see it from your window or any other window at your place, or from the yard, just keep on standing there and then just look at the sky. Say these words:

“The moon is my friend

who’s listening to me

bringing the beauty

into my dreams.

The stars are here

forever to shine,

bringing serenity

and peace of mind.

When I close my eyes

they won’t be gone,

keeping me safe

till the dawn.”

You can repeat these words for as many times you want if you feel you need to.

After this, extinguish the flame, in case the candle hasn’t burned down, take off the ribbon and put it around your wrist before going to bed. Leave the candle and a piece of silver on your window till the next morning. Then remove both of them and the silver ribbon from your wrist. You can repeat this ritual 1-3 times a week, always using a new candle and a new ribbon. However, collect the ribbons. When you feel your nightmares are gone, you can still do this ritual once a week. It can be done on any night of the week.

Keeping Rituals Light and Fun for a Child

Remember not everything about The Craft has to be serious. You can honor a deity or do a spell in a fun way that brings joy and laughter to your heart, mind, and spirit. Young children usually learn things better if it is enjoyable to them rather than boring adult stuff. Take your child to the woods and have them look for a stick that they feel is special for them than take it home and do a ritual for their age level to turn the stick into their first wand. If the child feels it should be decorated offer them glue glitter stickers stones or even paint. To cast the circle the child could skip or dance around to form it or even do a small train where the adult leads the child behind them by holding hands. A suggestion is to do the consecration ritual as a chant, this way the child gets to sing and maybe play a drum (a plastic bowl and wooden spoon work great for a child). When it comes time to do the feasting have juice and graham crackers, remember to have them take some outside to make an offering of thanks. When your ritual is through or during it allow the child to dance or skip around the circle to open it. Keep the ritual light, entraining, and fun and I can almost guarantee the child will remember getting their first wand forever. You may also want to help the child, depending on age to sew a bag to keep their wand in, especially if it has glitter on it.
