Re: Why do I feel like I should eat my spells?

I just did an Imbolc ritual with my group where everyone used a toothpick to inscribe onto a slice of cheese (since milk/dairy is sacred to Brigid) the qualities they wanted to manifest during the new year, and then we all ate the cheese together. I've also heard of inscribing runes/sigils onto cook...

Re: Ritual or spell for when someone passes away.

Very sorry for your loss. I also composed a ritual several years ago for a similar situation -- you can find it here.

Re: Necromancy

Moderator note --

Necromancy is not inherently "dark" magic -- many Pagans engage in ancestor veneration or communicate with the dead. Please do note that some topics are not permitted at EUTM (including, but not limited to, curses and summoning demons); the mod team will remove such content.

Re: Fire safety

Agreed with LC -- cast iron is safest. I have a little cast iron cauldron that I put on top of a stone tile, just in case. I'd also strongly recommend bringing fire extinguisher or having more than one way to put out a fire in a ritual. I can't tell you the number of times that my coven members have...

Re: Essential Oils

I love essential oils for aromatherapy, although I am a little too afraid to use them on skin or ingesting them. Essential oils are not regulated, so anyone can claim that they are "therapy grade" or "food grade" (or whatever), which is why I'm nervous about using them very seriously for medicinal p...

Re: Frogs in witchcraft

I agree! My coven is very fond of frogs; they're our unofficial mascot. They are a powerful symbol of metamorphosis, transformation, and change.

Re: Sigil Magic gone wrong

Hello Sean! Interesting -- I will have to look into the The Dao of Craft . I haven't read it, so I don't know exactly how Fu sigils are supposed to work. In general, I would not recommend doing magic in a language (particularly that involving modifying characters/language) that you are not familiar ...

Re: Book Of Shadows

You don't have to create one if you don't want to, but at some point along the way you might find it useful to keep records (if nothing else, because you want to do the same ritual again!). There are a lot of potential ways to have a BoS that might be simpler for starting out -- yes, it CAN be reall...

Re: Aphrodite

Congratulations on your wedding, Moonpetal! I would also suggest that there are also some other ways to get to know Aphrodite. She is not just the goddess of love, but also of pleasure and sensuality, and you can really get creative! Taking a long bubble bath filled with fragrances could be a wonder...

Re: Strong Intuition. How to know if it's true or false?

I would say with my intuition I am generally good. But more so in instances that do not involve me directly. Things that I have no care about, because I don't have a personal opinion either way. In those cases I am very good at having the correct feelings, but when I am personally involved it is ve...

Re: Confused about Karma..

I'm probably of a minority on this forum that doesn't believe that karma works like that. Many Westerners have interpreted karma to mean there is some kind of cosmic retribution system, where God/the Universe observes everything that we do and metes out justice accordingly. That's not to say it's no...
