The Witches Magic for the 4th Day of the Chaste Moon – MYSTIC MOONLIGHT MEDITATION


Fantasy Comments & Graphics

MYSTIC MOONLIGHT MEDITATION

 

Find a place either indoors or outdoors where you can easily view the moon. Get comfortable and begin to relax by slowly inhaling until your lungs are full. Hold your breath for three counts before slowly exhaling. As you do, sense all the stress and tension being released from your body. With each breath you take, your muscles become more and more relaxed, moving you into a peaceful easy feeling. Do this at least three times.

Gaze at the moon as it looms above you in the night sky. Notice any shadows on its surface or moon bows spiraling around it. Observe the color and sensation of the moonlight as it shines down all around you. If you close your eyes a little, the light will seem to be streaming down in colored rays from the moon.

Close your eyes all the way, and imagine yourself becoming lighter than air and floating away like a bubble riding on a moonbeam. You sense yourself moving ever higher into the night and ever closer to the source of the light. Reaching the moon, you bathe in the white light as it moves in, out, and all around your being. The pure light cleanses and refreshes every part of you: body, mind, and spirit.

After the meditation, make sure to take a few moments to relax and bring your awareness back into your body, before trying to do activities that require your full attention , such as driving a car. If you prefer, you can do this meditation just before you go to sleep. If you do, allow yourself to move right into pleasant, moonlit dreams.

WOTC Extra – Making and Charging Magical Talismans


Fantasy Comments & Graphics

Making and Charging Magical Talismans

 

Talismans acquire the power through ceremonies of consecration. But before consecrating a talisman, we must first decide what its function is. Firstly, we need to decide why we feel that we need it, and what we intend it to do for us. Should the talisman function as a weapon or as a shield (should it be magically active or passive)? Should it attract good fortune, or ward off harm? If it is to protect me, should the protection come from invisibility, so that it works unnoticed, or should it be visible, appearing fearsome? What is the talisman to be called? These are important considerations to contemplate, for they affect the style and content of the proposed talisman.

When we make or charge a talisman, we must have the right magical attitude from the beginning to the end of the ceremony. Proper mental preparation is essential. Natural magic should never be performed as a game, for entertainment or as a joke. Performing natural magic is primarily a means to inner spiritual development, and this is even more important than the results on the outer level. In any case, magical processes will not work properly unless we are mindful at every part of the entire operation, no matter how long it takes to finish.

During a magical action like this, however long or difficult the procedure may turn out to be, it is essential to remain concentrated throughout. We must first rid ourselves of any negative attitudes, emotions or thoughts. We must remain clear-sighted, mindful of our task. Because consecration focuses our concentrated willpower into the object, every action we take must be in accord. Any departure from this means failure.

It is customary to give talismans personal names. Like everything made by hand, a talisman is unique. It is made by a specific individual, at a specific time for a specific purpose. It is as individual as the person who made it, and ensouled with that person’s main. Even if the individual has made many similar ones before, they were made at other times with other materials. Each talisman thus has its own personality, and it is fitting to name it when we empower it. The name should reflect the function intended for the talisman.

As well as our personal attitude, timing is important. When we want to promote growth or expansion, we make our talisman during the waxing Moon. Conversely, those connected with decline and diminution are made during the waning Moon. Astrologers can recommend exact moments that are best suited to the purpose.

When we have everything we need, and the time is right, we can make and empower our talisman. Firstly, collect together everything necessary, decide on the talisman’s name, and create a psychic enclosure. This is a temporary magical barrier that protects the worker and his or her materials from psychic interference at this critical time. Once in the correct state of mind, let nothing distract you from the procedure. Everything necessary must be done with full concentration, visualizing the appropriate energies flowing into the talisman as you proceed.

Talismans are named with a naming ceremony, which may be used for anything that needs to be named. Once the talisman is finished, it should be enclosed in darkness. You can put it in a box, a lightproof bag, or wrap it in black cloth. Then rotate the container and the talisman within it nine times, calling upon the power that you intend it to have. When you have completed this, bring out the talisman into the light once more. This moment of re-emergence from darkness is its symbolic birth. To name it, first pass the talisman three times over a burning candle or other flame. As you do so, call upon the powers of light and life to empower the talisman with their full strength. Then, sprinkle sea-water or water with salt over it, whilst chanting:

As I sprinkle water over you

I name you (name of talisman).

By air and water, earth and fire.

 

Once this is over, the final infusing of its necessary energy is done. A spell stating the function is needed, such as:

(Name of talisman), who bears my will,

I charge you to do as commanded,

For the purpose of (state what it will do and where it will do it).

May this talisman work my will

In accordance with eternal laws.

 

Finally, visualize three interlinked circles over and around the talisman, and close down the psychic enclosure. It is a fundamental principle of natural magic always to remove any psychic construct that we have made, once we no longer need it.  Close the working down with an ending spell such as:

Now the work is finished,

Where (name of talisman)

Has been brought out of the

dark nothingness

Into this world,

In the name of the elements (or another appropriate deity or power).

The talisman is now ready, fully empowered.

Let’s Talk Witch – Talismans and Amulets


Fantasy Comments & Graphics

Talismans and Amulets

 

Talismans and amulets – sometimes called collectively ‘lucky charms’ – are worn as magical protectors. When we wear or carry them, we are under their benevolent influence. Amulets are usually natural objects that possess some special power: a special object for example, such as a stone, a fossil or gem. Amulets exert their power whether or not they have been consecrated. They are almost exclusively protective in function. They resist unwanted entities, such as harmful sprites, and unfortunate states of being, including ill luck, depression and sickness.

Talismans, on the other hand, are artefacts charged by ceremonial consecration to possess specific energies. The nature of a talisman depends entirely upon the actions we take during its preparation, and the intent we put into it. Each talisman is given a function that the user knows, so that, when it is in use, it evokes its powers within the user internally as well as externally. Talismans are useful material supporters of spiritual powers. Their form frequently reflects a spiritual principle, and they give an opportunity for master craftspeople to produce work of exceptional beauty and power.

When we make talismans, we try to ensure that the magical virtues of the materials correspond with the desired use. Only when inner powers and purpose are in alignment, can we expect the best possible outcome. Talismans are frequently of a practical, as well as a decorative, nature. Bracelets, pendants and rings can be worn easily and enhance the wearer’s appearance as well as her or his spiritual powers. Although talismans written or printed on paper or parchment form part of some magical systems, natural magic uses only talismans based upon metal, wood, bone and stone. Amulets that cannot be made into personal jewelry are often carried in a special container, such as a pouch or a locket. Amulets and talismans are sometimes worn together, as on ‘charm bracelets’. Stones, beads, amber, silver, gold, claws of eagles and bears, wolves’ teeth, toads’ bones and snake vertebrae. Teeth, claws and bones link the wearer to the corresponding animal powers. If one has a personal power animal, then it is fitting to choose something from it, either a symbolic representation or part of one.

Magickal Activity for the 4th Day of March, The Feast of Rhiannon

 

Apple on a String (Love Spell)

 

Select a large red apple. Mark sections on the outside peel by scraping lines into the skin. Into each one of the sections, scrape the name or initials of the persons that you wish for lovers.

Tie a string to the stem of the apple and hang it from any support. Next, twirl the apple around so that when you release it, it will spin in a clockwise direction. Hold a 3-inch needle in your hand and as the apple begins to twirl, close your eyes, and repeat the following chant:

 

Bountiful Queen, Goddess of love,

Shower your blessings from above.

As I work this apple spell,

Show me the one who will love me well.

 

As you finish the chant, push the needle all the way into the apple, steadying the fruit with your other hand. The name in the section were the pin has pierced will be your true lover.

Celebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Feast of Rhiannon


Fantasy Comments & Graphics

Feast of Rhiannon

 

It is a popular custom for the Wiccans of Wales and Ireland to honor the Goddess Rhiannon this day. Known as “Rigantona,” meaning Great Queen, Rhiannon has been identified with the popular Gaulish mare Goddess Epopna.

Rhiannon’s divine status is indicated by her first encounter with Pwyll, the king of Dyfed. Riding slowly past him on a large white horse, he was entranced and pursued her. But even with the swiftest of mounts he could not overtake her. Finally, in desperation, he called out to her. Rhiannon stopped to converse with him, admitting she was seeking him out. Pwyll won Rhiannon’s love and when she arrived at his court to be married, she brought precious gifts for all the nobles. Thus her image of a generous, bountiful queen-Goddess.

Today Is …

 

Egyptian: Feast of Ra

Feast of Rhiannon ~ On this day in Ireland and Wales, the annual Feast of Rhiannon is celebrated by many Wiccans in honor of Rhiannon, the Celtic/Welsh Mother-Goddess who was originally known as Rigatona (the Great Queen) and identified with the Gaulish mare-Goddess Epona.

CAW ~ On this date in the year 1968, the Church of All Worlds (founded by Otter Zell) was formally chartered, thus becoming the first federally recognized church of Neo-Paganism.

Mothering Day in England. Honor your Mother and your own ability to mother

Greece: An annual three-day long ritual called the Anthesteria was held on this date to honor the Goddesses Flora and Hecate, as well as the souls of the dead (the Keres).
Also, the fourth day of every month is sacred to the Goddess Aphrodite and the God Hermes. ~earthmoonandsky
)0(
NOTE: Because of the large number of ancient calendars, many in simultaneous use, as well as different ways of computing holy days (marked by the annual inundation, the solar year, the lunar month, the rising of key stars, and other celestial and terrestrial events), you may find these holy days celebrated a few days earlier or later at your local temple.

•           •           •           •.

Remember the ancient ways and keep them sacred!
