The Witch’s Jewerly

A Witch’s jewelry is probably one of the most personal magical tools; after all, we wear jewelry on our body within our energy field for long periods of time. When worn, certain metals, symbols, and stones can enhance your personal energy in different ways. A necklace, ring, or bracelet can be enchanted for many different magical purposes and worn daily. Some Witches wear jewelry with magical symbols or a particular god, goddess, or spirit guide in order to carry that energy with them. I love wearing pieces of magical jewelry to serve as a constant reminder of my commitment to my spiritual path. Some Witches have special jewelry they only wear during ritual, some even wear bejeweled headpieces, I know Witches who wear necklaces of traditional amber and jet either earned through the ranks of their covens or crafted themselves. One of my favorite forms of magical jewelry is a bracelet or anklet made from embroidery floss either macrame` or braided with stones and glass beads. I create these while focusing on my magical intention; I tie it on and wear it all the time.

Week 6 – Goddess Knowledge – Pele

Pele is the fiery Hawaiian volcano goddess. The daughter of the earth goddess Haimea, Pele came to Hawaii on a boat. Killed in a fight with her sister, the ocean, sho took refuge in the glowing cauldron of Mount Kilauea (this is the volcano that had the major eruption in July 2018 – a link will be below) where she receives the souls of the dead and regenerates them with fire. In a tempestuous relationship with Kamapua`a the ferocious pig god,  she is portrayed as a jealous goddess, her rages manifesting as volcanic eruptions. Revered by Hawaiians even today, she carries the force of the volcano, with its molten lava flow, which even in destrud=ction creates new land. Pele stands for the molten, fierce aspect of life that is unable to do anything halfway. She reminds us that even in the midst of fiery eruption there s creation and new life.

Your Daily Erotic Tarot Card for January 14 is Temperance

Your Daily Erotic Tarot Card for January 14 is Temperance

Temperance

The Temperance card represents erotic fairness and compromise, and perhaps even the necessity to calm passions in order to build up another part of your relationship. Have you been concentrating so much on the physical aspect of love that you’ve forgotten to nurture the mental, emotional, or spiritual side of things? Put a temporary hold on sex so that you can explore other aspects of a partnership. When the moratorium is over, prepare for some mind-blowing passion that will help make up for lost time!

The Title Book of Shadows vs Grimoire

 

Every Witch when they are beginning to learn their personal path of The Craft or The Old Ways either through reading, a mentor, or a coven leader are told to make or buy a journal of some type. This journal becomes one of their magickal tools that is commonly called by one of two names either a Book of Shadows (BOS) or a Grimoire which is a very personal and Important book as well as a magickal tool.

Let me regress here for a moment thanks to how witches are usually stereotyped through different type of media outlets a BOS would belong to a good witch and a Grimoire to a dark witch, daemon, or another evil being.

Actually many witches including myself use the titles interchangeably. While others in a coven of witches or are a solitary practitioner, use the title BOS as their very personal secret book for their eyes only magical journal. The title Grimoire on the other hand is usually used in a coven for their coven’s magickal journal and is often written in and/read by many different people as it belongs to the past, present, and future coven members and can be read by those at a specific level of learning on up and full imitation into the coven. While solitary practice their BOS or Grimoire belongs to that person only and it is up to that witch who else can read it.

HERE’S WHY 2019 IS GOING TO BE THE YEAR OF YOU

Witches Of The Craft®

HERE’S WHY 2019 IS GOING TO BE THE YEAR OF YOU

People make all sorts of resolutions at the turn of a new year, often to abandon them within just a few days or weeks.

Sometimes that’s because the resolutions weren’t that well-intentioned – or that practical – to begin with, ie: fad diets, which are more often a health risk not a health choice. Sometimes it’s just because life has a way of catching up with us and we can’t maintain our new direction, as much as we may want (and need!) to make a change.

Well, in 2019, it’s gonna be different.

The movements of the planets strongly suggest that the first thing on our mind this year will likely be a very serious inventory of our practical goals and aspirations with a benevolent emphasis on breaking old and destructive habits. And while that type of…
