Re: Should I be worried?

I would also interpret it as a positive sign that the Earth has accepted your excess negative energy. You'd be surprised at the little synchronicities that happen in ritual ... Yes, you had blessed water and that's probably what caused it, but the timing is telling. I once had an experience when my ...

Re: Use of Bells in Rituals

Has anyone ever read the Old Kingdom Trilogy, by Garth Nix? It's fiction, but I really like the magic system ... the main character has seven bells, each with a name and a purpose: Ranna - the Sleeper Mosrael - the Waker Kibeth - the Walker Dyrim - the Speaker Belgaer - the Thinker Saraneth - the Bi...

Re: Witchcraft Isn't Like Harry Potter

I love Harry Potter as a series, but most of the spells don't resemble anything like the witchcraft that I practice. The only part that actually does kind of seem more similar, though, is the Patronus charm -- the level of visualization, focus, and emotional aspects of the spell is much closer to wh...

Re: Solar Eclipse, August 21, 2017

Wow. That was so incredible. My whole office went out to watch -- we had a blast!!!

Apparently, the next solar eclipse is in 2024, and the path of totality will be not too far from me. I know what I'm spending my vacation time on that year!! : )

Re: Solar Eclipse spells and rituals?

I'm planning on putting out a few jars of water to charge it under the eclipse. I've seen a couple of different sources on what such water would be good for, but it just seems to me like extra-charged water. I'm also placing a witch's bottle I prepared last night -- today seems like an auspicious da...

Re: Love sepll gone right..or wrong? Or nothing at all?

Hi Young Hag, so you only cast the spell really only a few days ago. I have not personally cast a love spell, but I have heard from many people's experiences that they take time, especially if you are seeking to attract a very significant love in your life. A quick fling may only require waiting a f...

Re: Solar Eclipse, August 21, 2017

Haha, that's okay. More reposts, the better! Silly me -- I was going to order solar eclipse glasses a week ago, and then for some reason I must have gotten busy and then forgot all about it. Today I went on Amazon to look, and those glasses have nearly tripled or quadrupled in price (the reputable a...

You can see what time the solar eclipse will be at its peak for your location with this calculator: https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2017/7/25/16019892/solar-eclipse-2017-interactive-map @ SpiritTalker -- I think even two sunglasses may not be 100% safe for your eyes; you might want to conside...

Re: Ritual adornment

Great topic! I have been thinking about how to do ritual adornment, and I'm still a little bit torn on the right way to do it. I recently led an interfaith ritual, for which I thought it was important to wear something that is not so off-putting to non-Pagans that they couldn't take me seriously (i....

Using Dance in Witchcraft

Hey friends! Pallando's post on Beats Antique inspired me to start this topic. For the past few years I've been studying belly dance with a local group, which I've been absolutely loving! That's been really getting me to explore more kinesthetic forms of magic and incorporating simple dance into gro...

Re: What do you put in your Witches' Protection Bottle?

I've made a variant on a witch bottle once, to absorb the bad energy from one particularly manipulative individual who had it out for me. I used a lot of pins, vinegar, and cayenne pepper, sealed with black wax. It's doubling as a freezer spell as well (the bottle lives in the very back of my freeze...

Re: Spell to officially make my pet my familiar?

I would be very cautious with making an animal into a familiar. There are many different opinions on this; some would say that animals either are or aren't a familiar. Others would say that a true familiar would make themselves known to you. And still others would say it is unethical to force an ani...

Re: I need help getting started, staying focused?

It's normal to have phases where you're very spiritually engaged, and then you get into a rut. Sometimes it takes a while to get back in, but you're on the right track just by noticing your spiritual needs. Just be patient; it'll come with time. I grew up in the suburbs where there wasn't a lot of "...
