WHERE:

Coven Life’s Chatroom

What you will need:

A purple candle. (If you don’t have purple, use white)

Lighter or matches.

An amulet  (preferably small enough to hold in your hand).

As we will be doing a ritual for protection, you may want to decorate your altar with lavender, amethyst, or other items you may have that are purple.

RITUAL

Tonight we are honoring the full moon, known as the Hare Moon. There are many legends and folk tales of the hare and the image of him on the moon. In most, it is a tale of virtue that brings good fortune to the person that unselfishly gives of himself to help others. A great lesson to learn. It is a moon of abundance, growth, and protection. We will use this energy to empower an amulet to provide protection. I will now call the Watchtowers.

MAIA: I call the Watchtower of the East to protect those inside and outside our circle today.

I call upon the Watchtower of the South to protect those inside and outside our circle today.

I call upon the Watchtower of the West to protect those inside and outside our circle today.

I call upon the Watchtower of the North to protect those inside and outside our circle today.

Please open your quarters and please hear our call.

I call upon Spirit to guide us in peace and love.

I ask the Goddess Diana to walk this circle three times three to lend us her power and energy as we gather here today. Let us come together and celebrate the lunar Goddess and the power she brings.

Merry greet brothers and sisters of the craft.

EVERYONE: Please type your name and country you live in.

MAIA: We gather here this day to ask the Goddess for protection from harm to our physical or mental well being. Let no one cause injury or heartache to our body or soul and may we be mindful to not cause pain for others.

EVERYONE: Please light your candle.

Please hold the item you have chosen to empower in your hands. Close your eyes and feel the item. See the item in your mind’s eye. Envision a protective barrier surrounding the item. Take 2 minutes to make the item your own personal amulet.

EVERYONE: When ready, type As I will it So Mote It Be!

Carry your amulet to feel protected or if it is large, place it by the front door of your house. It can be on a chain on your neck, hang from your rearview mirror, on a keychain, etc. Remember the power your amulet holds is the energy you have given it….recharge it by holding it in your hand and meditating.

MAIA: I dismiss the Watchtower of the East with thanks for their energy and protection here today.

I dismiss the Watchtower of the South with thanks for their energy and protection here today.

I dismiss the Watchtower of the West with thanks for their energy and protection here today.

I dismiss the Watchtower of the North with thanks for their energy and protection here today.

I dismiss Spirit from our circle with love and thanks.

I thank the Goddess Diana for her presence here today and for lending us her energy for protection. Please return from where you came.

Extinguish the candle safely.

The circle is open, but not broken. Go in perfect love and perfect trust.

Thank you, brothers and sisters, for joining us here today. Until Merry, we meet again.

The Runes of Odin (14. Perth)

 

Element : Water

Planet : Saturn

Tree : aspen

Plant : wolf`s bane or sweet william

Meaning : mystery, well, womb, gambling, science, cave , cup

Goddess : Frigg

Stone : aquamarine

Day : Friday

Colour : red, female energy

Month : May

Galdr : http://www.sunnyway.com/runes/galdr.html

Pathwalking with the Rune : http://www.northernshamanism.org/pathwalking-with-runes.html

This rune can open or provide a barrier for the dark forces, the realms of the death too. It makes us face our weakness, our failures and our sorrows. It makes us ask ourselves about what would we do if our death is near now. This is a good rune for trials and attack. This is a rune of time and change. It rules the secrets and the hidden things and it is also connected with the karmic energies. It is evolution of the magical ideas. The rune Perth can be used when you make investments or merchandising and also when you try to find something that you have lost.

In its meaning “fate, destiny” Perth directs the runic forses into cause – consequence. Perth helps you to receive intuitive guidance about financial operations. This is a rune of mystery, chance, merchandise, science and technologies.

Divination : Unknown result, mystery, gambling, weird things. To succeed you must use what is modern. Perth leads to spiritual revelation of a secret. This rune is connected with pregnancy and giving birth. It is also connected  with the average and sensual sexual gelight.

To interpret Perth you should enguage the mystic and the providence.

Interpretation : there is always choice for you about everything. Noone and nothing can upset you unless you choose so. You should not allow your truth to be compromised if you want to do what you choose to do. Clearly state your right to choose. The biggest danger for you is not to make the choice and to let the things be. Do shape your future.

Reversed meaning : a possible failure. What seems clear hides deeper aspects and meanings. Do not hurry, do not give up. Believe only your loved ones. Do not take anything for granted. There may be a hidden depth in others` statements.

The development of the situation will not be what you expect or want to. You should temporarily give up your experiments with the occult forces.

This rune has a connection with Phoenix bird and with Mimir`s well,  too. It is possible a deep secret of yours to come up to the surface and you may be disappointed or surprised by a person you trusted in.

Unexpected gain or surprise. In combination with Gebo or Hagalaz or Thurisaz it means financial gain. If you receive a gift , do ask yourself if there are hidden motives for it. Emotionally speaking, this is a sign for amazing sexual compatibility. In combination with Kano or Uruz Perth is a sign for a relationship based on sex only.

When Perth is surrounded by negative runes this can mean a rare, unknown and difficult to cure illness.

The rune Perth can be used to help finding Mimir`s well and to connect with the Norns.  According to the Norse myths Mimmir is a giant who keeps the well of knowledge and wisdom and drinks of it and  drinking the water from this well he has all wisdom. Odin went into the land of the giants to  meet Mimir. At the shore of the lake they met and  Odin asked Mimir for  permission to take one sip from this well. Mimir agreed but asked for one of Odin`s eyes in return. With his knife Odin took off one of his eyes and the eye fell into the well, then Odin drank of the water and gained wisdom. The eye stayed into the well…seeing …nothing and…seeing everything.

Later Mimir`s head was cut by the Aesir gods and Mimir died. Mimir knew many secrets and was the wisest one. Odin decided to give the life back to Mimir`s head. Odin took the head of the giant, wrapped it with herbs and cast spells on it. Soon the head was alive again and could speak.

The rune is drawn with the middle and index finger together starting from top to base.

There is a large portion of our unmanifest future that rests on an element of chance. This awareness must be incorporated into the lore of Perthro and divination is a way to discern the parameters of that element of chance. Divination through casting of lots using dice or runes provides conscious indicators of unconscious ‘lay’ or pattern of cause and effect as it pertains to any specific future happening.

Of all the runes, this one is the most mysterious, perhaps next to Eihwaz before it, because Perthro deals with the mysteries within the runes themselves and the birth of the universe. On one hand this allows you to intuit original knowledge about the runes that may have been suppressed, destroyed or incompletely passed on over the centuries. On the other hand, the ‘how to’ techniques are less defined than with other runes, for we are dealing with fundamental mysteries of the universe. Orlog plays out as the consequences of the cosmic and primal laws themselves unfold from beginning of the universe until the end. All patterns are interdependent and interwoven, throughout all existence…

Types Of Wicca

 

 

Alexandrian Wicca

Founded in England during the 1960s, Alex Sanders referred to himself as the “King” of his Witches. The rituals are said to be modified Gardenarian.

 

British Wicca

A mix of Celtic and Gardenarian beliefs. Most famous organization at this time is the International Red Garters. British Traditionals move mostly from within the Farrar studies (the famous Witch husband and wife from England.) They too are fairly structured in their beliefs, and train through the degree process. Their covens are also co-ed.

 

Celtic Wicca

The use of a Celtic/Druidic pantheon mixed with a little ritual Gardnerian, and heavily stressing the elements, nature and the Ancient Ones. They had a vast knowledge of and respect for the healing and magickal qualities of plants and stones, flowers, trees, elemental spirits, the little people, gnomes and fairies.

About the Watchtowers and the Guardians

It is a rule in many Wiccan traditions to strenghten the protection of the magickal space/circle by the help of the Watchtowers. Basically this is calling the four Directions and their corresponding elements arround the magickal circle. If you visualise this, it is a sqare built around the magical circle that is in fact a sphere that holds the magical energy within.

Each one of the four Watchtowers is “inhabited” by the Guardians during the ritual. The Guardians of each Tower are its corresponding elements , elementals, Spirits or corresponding Beings of other planes of existence like Dragons, Archangels , Winds, Spirit Animals and even Stars. The Guardians are given specific tasks by the witch for the ritual : protecting the circle, witnessing the ritual, helping the witch do particular work, open portals for certain energies, Spirits, Beings, Gods  to come into the circle by the witches will.

With this article I am going to give some information about one type of Guardians that are four Stars corresponding to each one of the four directions. I first came to know their names and how to call them and work with them  thanks to Silver RavenWolf /”To stir the magick cauldron”/. These four stars Guardians of the four directions are : Fomalhaut / North/, Aldebaran/ East/, Regulus / South/, Antares / West/.

These stars have been known since Ancient times and were called “Royal Stars”, the Key stars, Archangel Stars.

Fomalhaut

Direction : North

Archangel : Gabriel

Zodiac : Aquarius

Season : autumn

Planetary behaviour : it carries energies close to these of Mercury, Uranus and the Sun

Other name : The mouth of the Fish

This star is also considered Dragon star. Fomalhaut consists of 3 stars : Fomalhaut A is 14 times brighter than the Sun and is a blue dwarf star, it belongs to the  constellation Southern Fish. Fomalhaut B is an orange dwarf star and it is this one that is described as Dragon star. Fomalhaut C is a red dwarf star and belongs to the constellation Aquarius.

The energy of Fomalhaut helps the transition from material towards the spiritual. It gives information, courage, helps with the scientific work and writing and also with the spiritual work.

Aldebaran

Direction : East

Archangel :  Michael

Zodiac : Taurus

Season : winter

Planetary behaviour : it carries energies close to these of Mars and Jupiter

Other names : The eye of the Bull, The Star of Buddha, The Star of the Light, The Eye of God, Alef, Rohini.

This is a double star that consists of a red giant and a dwarf star /M2/. This is the brightest star from the constellation Bull. Aldebaran is situated at the eye of the Bull. Aldebaran is the 14th brightest star in the sky. Its energy is Mars type energy and mostly male energy. It brings courage, honor, intelligence, eloquence, steadfastness, integrity, popularity, courage, ferocity, a tendency to seduction, power, wealth. But these are short lived. There is a certain danger of violence. Aldebaran though can be a happy star because it can help one to overcome the lower vibrations through action.  Its negative aspects are violence, obedience, anger, envy, cruelty, arrogance.

Regulus

Direction : South

Archangel : Raphael

Zodiac : Leo

Season : spring

Planetary behaviour : it carries energies close to these of Mars and Jupiter

Other names : The Heart of the Lion, The Little King, The Destructive Step

This is the brightest star in the constellation Leo and one of the brightest stars in the sky. It is situated into the heart of the Lion formed by the stars of the constellation Leo.

Regulus consists of four stars that are two couples. Regulus can affect the human body at the area that is 2 inches above the kidneys. It has a connection with the death and the Ascension of kings and queens.

It brings success, short lived military victory, destruction, military honor, spiritual strength. Regulus provokes ambition, power, independence, a desire to command. This star is connected with the images of lion, cat and sitting king on a throne.

Regulus is one of the 15 Behenian Stars that have magical skills because they are associated with plants and stones. Regulus corresponds with Granite and Mugwort.

Antares

Direction : West

Archangel : Oriel

Zodiac : Scorpio

Season : summer

Planetary behaviour : it carries energies close to these of Mars , Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn

Other names : The Heart of the Scorpio, The Rival of Mars.

In Ancient Egypt Antares was a symbol of the Goddess Selkit.

Antares is a red supergiant star, its size is much bigger than the size of our Sun, by comparison with Antares our Sun looks like a white dot next to a giant red star. Antares is nearing  the end of its life and will explode as super nova. This will not happen in the near future/human time/ and when this happen it will not affect the Earth because of the huge distance between the Earth and Antares.

Antares is the brightest star from the constellation Scorpio and is situated at the heart of the Scorpio. It is the 16th brightest star in the sky. The best moment tp observe it is the time around 31st of May.  It pulsates with red light. Antares has a hot blue giant star twin.

According to an old Egyptian myth Gaia sent the Scorpio to sting Orion who threatened to kill all animals on Earth. The Scorpio killed Orion and later they both were placed on the sky in opposite directions. The Scorpio chases the Mighty Hunter Orion. Antares is considered “ Guardian of the West”. It corresponds with water and carries Mars type energy mixed with the energies of Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn.  Anteres is important for soldiers, it makes one stabborn, warry, brave  and fastens the mind. It gives strategy skills and courage.

 

Note : the stars Fomalhaut and Regulus are also described as Guardians of North / Regulus/ and South / Fomalhaut/ in the articles I found out online , but I work with them considering Fomalhaut as a Guardian of North and Regulus as a Guardian of South / I follow what Silver RavenWolf has written about them/.

Dragons from Animal Magick The Art of Recognizing and Working with Familiar

The Dragon in one form or another was known to the majority of the world cultures in both the Old and New Worlds. It was one of the early symbols of the Great Mother Goddess of the matriarchies. Until the arrival of patriarchal societies, the dragon was considered to be a sacred, benevolent creature; its serpent body symbolized matter and life-giving water of creation, its wings spirit and the breath of life.

It was used as an emblem for divinity and royalty in Babylon, Egypt, China, Japan, Greece, and Rome. The Chinese Manchu dynasty, the Phoenicians, and the Saxons all showed it as enthroned, a symbol of the power of the ruler. The Chinese dragon symbolized the masculine yang power, very high spiritual power, and the emperor himself. This connection with imperial power carried over to England and Wales.

The dragon was known as the Ling of Larger Serpents to medieval writers. Dragons and bulls in the Western world were fought by such Sun-heroes as Mithras, Sigfried, Hercules, Jason, Hours, and Apollo.

In Hindu myth, Vitra, the Dragon of Waters, was killed by Indra so that the waters could be released upon the Earth. The dragon was also the emblem of Aruna and Soma.

There are two major categories of physical appearance of dragons: those of the East and those of the West.

The Oriental or Chinese dragon looked terrible and fierce, but was a symbol of prosperity, rain, wisdom, and hidden secrets. Oriental dragons did not have wings, but were shaped more like huge serpents with four legs. The early Chinese worshiped the dragon, and at one time had its image on national flags. Using the symbol of the five-toed imperial dragon was reserved for emperors. The guardian of the mansions of the gods was the Chinese Celestial Dragon, T’ien Lung; he also prevented the deities from falling out of their heavenly realm. Oriental heroes did not hunt dragons, as Western heroes. The Oriental dragons were said to leave their mountain caves or watery homes in the spring to bring fertilizing rains.

Both Chinese and Japanese believe that dragons can turn themselves into birds. The three-clawed dragon of Japan symbolized the Mikado, the imperial and spiritual power. Most Japanese dragons were said to live in lakes and springs.

Ancient Western writers wrote all kinds of terrifying things about the Western dragon. These creatures were built like enormous lizards with wings, their bodies were thicker than those of the Oriental dragons. Their throats and back legs were like those of an eagle, the grasping front legs like those of a reptile, and a tail that ended in an arrow-point. Western dragons were considered to be enemies of the humans, and heroes were always hunting them down and killing them. Under the circumstances, its no wonder that Western dragons stopped trying to get along with humans. They liked to live in dark caves, a few of them in water. They breathed fire, and their breath was supposed to spread plagues.

The dragon in alchemy had a number of meanings. If several dragons were shown fighting each other, it meant separating out the Elements, or psychic disintegration. A dragon biting its tail symbolized cyclic processes and time; this particular dragon was known to the Gnostics as Ouroboros. A winged dragon represented a volatile Element, while the wingless dragon stood for a fixed Element.

In spiritual definitions, the dragon represents the supernatural, infinity itself, and the spiritual powers of change and transformation.

Magickal Attributes: Protection, instruction in the spiritual, Element magick. Using the spiritual to transform life. Protection. Adding extra power to magick.

Chant

         Dragons strong and dragons bright,

Dragons full of wisdom old,

        Teach to me the spiritual light,

         Let me walk in knowledge bold,

         Dragon fire, lift me higher!

Runes of Odin ( 13. Eihwaz)

 

Meaning :Defence, Magic, Protection, Weapon, Deformation, Bow, Yew tree

Translation : Yew Tree

Stone : Topaz

Month : May

Energy : Male

Elements : Earth, Air, Fire, Water

God : Ullr

Zodiac sign : Scorpio

Plant : Lilac

Galdr : http://www.sunnyway.com/runes/galdr.html

Pathwalking with the Rune : http://www.northernshamanism.org/pathwalking-with-runes.html

This rune provides defence. When the things get messy,  it can help you to put them in order. If there is something that is not right in magic yet, this thing affects all things. In such a situation Eihwaz can be used in combination with other runes to keep the magic as a whole in certain boundaries.

Eihwaz symbolises the Yew Tree. It is a tree that was used for making bows and arrows. Eihwaz is a powerful rune for  exorcism and defence. It increases the force. It removes the obstacles. This rune leads into the wisdom of the World Tree or Multiverse and helps one to realise the mysteries of death and life. Getting free from the fear of death. Developing of spiritual endurance and strong will. Developing of a soul creativity. Protection from evil forces.  General increase of the personal power. Communication between the different levels of being.  Memories from past lives.

Eihwaz can be used for completing  situations and solving problems. It brings wisdom when you are in trouble.

Interpretation : You have powers of defence, powers to put off and head off the unwanted forces. It means defence, patience, caution against a sudden attack. This rune is under the number 13 that is the source of the superstition about  the fatal number 13. Yew trees used to be planted to keep unwanted animals away, to make the best bows. You should not fear from this rune because it means endurance and continuity. Eihwas includes defence magic and in general it represents safety against attacks. It is a wonderful defence weapon.

Divination : It is time for transformation , time to leave the old and enter the new one; new life, new dreams, new beginnings. The only constant thing is the change.

The fast advancement requires from you not to oppose but to accept the changes. You should not fear. The changes may be scary but you should keep on walking your path and remain true to yourself. Soon you will reach your goal.

Eihwaz does not have reverse meaning. You should express your passive defence potentials. You can easily overcome what  seems dangerous to you, you should do this with concentrated effort and patience. This rune advices you to be flexible and to use your imagination to make  each situation beneficial to you.

Eihwaz in combination with ansuz and Jera may indicate that long neglected problems will find their solution.

Eihwaz is also the rune of the Ash staff. That means defence. The type of defence depends on the way you draw this rune. If you draw it from top to base,  it is pure defence. If you draw it from base to top, it is aggressive defence. This rune can stumble people. You can place it on a certain place on the ground to stop someone who enters there. You can draw it directly against someone to stop this one. This rune will not affect them unless they step towards you and your property. Eihwaz is not that aggressive rune as Tyr . Eihwas can be carved onto a tree or placed  on a few  places in a certain territory, it stumbles the intruders  until they are  in and finally forces them to leave that place.

Fr protection of property Eihwaz can be used in combination with Algiz and Tyr.

The rune is drawn with the index and middle fingers together.

You can use Eihwaz to evoke the tree of Life Yggdrassil and its mysteries of life and death. This tree that gives Life had buried its roots deep into the Underworld of Hel and the realms of death.  Thus Eihwas represents the communication between the worlds. It gives defence and increases the personal power.

  • Divinity : Ull
  • Letter : Y as in yew

https://www.ifate.com/rune-meanings/what-does-the-eihwaz-rune-mean.html

The Eihwaz rune is also associated with the spinal column, the core self, and the eternal part of the soul.  The rune is linked to the yew bow through the Old Icelandic rune poem, the weapon of choice for the God Ullr and the giantess Skadi who ‘becomes’ a goddess through her marriage to the benevolent sea God Njord.  Despite the benefits of this match with Njord, Skadi cannot bear the warm, sloshy sea and eventually returns to her hall within the cold, grey mountains where she is said to spend her time with her lover Ullr, speeding joyfully across the glittering snow on swift skis, enjoying the hunt together.  Skadi’s strength of personality left the Gods themselves quaking in their boots (hence the marriage to Njord which was designed to appease her), she represents the core self which must find expression, no matter what the cost.
