The Witches Magick for the 2nd Day of the Mead MoonKIND BROWNIE SPELL

KIND BROWNIE SPELL

Brownies live in England and Scotland (Urisks), and are solitary faeries. They are one to two feet tall, with brown, wizened faces and hair that grows all over their body like teddy bears. They usually go naked but occasionally wear hooded brown cloaks. Brownies come out at night to do the chores when everyone is asleep, and are gone by the first cock call. They take care of the household pets, do unfinished jobs such as mowing; threshing; milking; shearing; tending the pets, livestock, and farm animals; shoe making; sewing; and cleaning.

Brownies can bring good fortune to your family provided you treat them well. Give them food and drink such as milk and cookies to win their favors, but never give them gifts or wages. To encourage a helpful brownie to come to your home, cast this spell tonight.

You will need a broom, a glass of milk, and a plate of cookies.

Before you go to sleep, sweep your front doorway and back doorway clean. Also sweep your fireplace or woodstove hearth clean if you have one. Put the glass of milk and cookies on the counter or table in your kitchen. Say:

I offer this milk and these cookies
to the kind and helpful brownies
who may grace my home tonight.
As you drift to sleep, repeat over and over:
May the kind and helpful brownies
grace my dreams and my home tonight.

In the morning, write everything you recall from your dreams in your journal. Return any remaining milk and cookies to the earth as an offering to the brownies. As you do, say:
Thank you, kind brownies.
May you always be blessed!

Witchcraft Definition

Originally posted on Coven Life:

According to law books of the Middle Ages, the act of invoking evil spirits or consulting, covenanting with, entertaining, employing, feeding, or rewarding any evil spirit.

According to statutes issued since the time of Henry VII, the crime of witchcraft included “taking up dead bodies from their graves for the purposes of witchcraft “or killing or otherwise hurting any person by such infernal arts”.

The murderous zeal against those who are inclined to practice the occult – especially prevalent in Europe during the 1600s – originated in the Christian Bible, Exodus 22:18:

“Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live”.

The biblical research indicates that the witch was female and that her actus reus was to create or invoke spells to harm others. Night-flying and metamorphosis were also suspected activities.

Definition:

Historically, witchcraft has denoted maleficia, or harmful magic. Accusing someone of being a witch was an accusation of them harming the community or someone within the community in some way. This could entail anything from making someone ill to causing miscarriages, from blighting crops to enchanting a desired lover.

The witch may or may not be understood to get her powers from Satan or demons, in which case it could also be called diabolism.

Historically, benevolent workers of magic were referred to by a variety of other terms and were accepted and even respected members of their communities.

In the 20th century, witchcraft started to take on a more generic and ethically neutral meaning. People started speaking of good witches and bad witches, with “witch” simply denoting a worker of magic, particularly practical magic. Witchcraft is one of several…

The Witches Magick for the 1st Day of the Mead Moon – Mead Moon Ritual


Moon & Witch Comments & Graphics
Mead Moon Ritual

 

Also known as the Lover’s or Honey Moon, the Mead Moon is the time when the flowers are blooming and the honey is brewing. One of the earliest alcoholic beverages, mead is made from fermenting honey. The word mead derives from amethyst, a stone long said to have the power to inhibit intoxication. This Mead Moon ritual is about bringing enchantment, health, rebirth, success, and strength into your life.
You will need fresh flowers, a piece of amethyst, your beloved, and two glasses of mead (or vanilla tea with a teaspoon of honey for a non-alcoholic substitute).

After dark, draw a circle of light and call in the elements. Place the fresh flowers on the altar as a gift to the Goddess:

Divine Lady of the flowers
Every night your blossoms
brighten my life.

Using your breath, clear the amethyst of any energy, then program it with sensations of divine love in a meadow of perfect peace. Place the amethyst on the altar in front of the flowers while saying:


Goddess and God of the Mead Moon
I give to you the stone of sacred love

You and your beloved each take one of the glasses of mead, and begin toasting to all the Goddesses and Gods for their help in making life good this year. Finish by toasting your beloved and the sacredness of the relationship that you have together. Celebrate the fullness of the Mead Moon with a night of lovemaking. In the morning, bid farewell to the elements and pull up the circle.

Moon & Witch Comments & Graphics Celebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Hay Season and Naga Panchami


Moon & Witch Comments & Graphics
June 1 and 2

Hay Season and Naga Panchami


Happiness is not a reward – it is a consequence.
Suffering is not a punishment – it is a result.

-Ralph Ingersoll

For the agricultural communities, this is the beginning of hay season. Spells for continued fair weather are needed to dry out the hay and maturing growing corn.

If the first of July it be rainy weather,
‘Twil rain, more or less, for four weeks together.
-Charles Kightly, Perpetual Almanack of Folklore

In Nepal, this is the festival of Naga Panchami, devoted to the Snake-Gods called Nagas. Early on, people lined the streets for the elaborate parades featuring live serpents and flamboyantly costumed participants. Sacred snake images are adorned with flower garlands and displayed on religious altars. As the sun sets, offerings are made at snake holes for the continued fertility of the people and the land.

The serpent has long been a phallic symbol of the procreative male force. Living beneath the earth, it possesses knowledge of the Underworld and the mystical powers of transformation. In many cultures, it is a symbol of death and destruction as well as resurrection. The serpent also represents the Kundalini force, the potential of light and darkness, and serves as a guardian of thresholds and temples-the protector of esoteric knowledge.

The Perfect Spell for the Full Moon on Wednesday – Insight and Gaining New Perspective Spell

Moon & Witch Comments & GraphicsThe Perfect Spell for the Full Moon on Wednesday – Insight and Gaining New Perspective Spell

This spell work with the runes as one of its props. If you have a set of runes, this is definitely the time to break them out. If not, no worries. The runes are a nice link back to the god Odin, but in a pinch you could also draw a few rune sigils on a piece of paper and set that on your work area. Improvise and be creative. What do you think you could also add to this full moon spell?

• 1 purple candle (purple for spirituality and to align with the energies of Mercury)
• A coordinating candle holder
• A nail or pin to engrave the candle with Wednesday’s planetary symbol of Mercury
• A black feather or a picture of a raven (this bird was sacred to Odin, and the raven represents mystery and magick)
• The Hanged Man tarot card
• Your tarot deck, set off to the side
• Runes scattered across the work surface or a drawing of a few runes
• A lighter or matches
• A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell

Carefully engrave the Mercury symbol on the candle. Place the candle in its holder and then arrange the rest of the spell components to your liking. You may certainly embellish this spell by adding a statue or image of Odin, if you choose. This full moon spell is designed to help you look at things from a new perspective and to receive some inspiration, so put on your thinking cap and be imaginative. Take a few moments to ground and center yourself. Then light the purple candle and speak the following verse:

Odin, hear my call on this full moon night
Grant me wisdom and improve my insight
May I gain a new perspective at this time
Bless me with peace and inspiration divine
I now release that which no longer serves
This change begins with the sounds of my words.

If you choose, this would be an excellent time to meditate and see what Odin has to tell you. Lay your hands on the card, feather, and runes. Take a deep breath and relax. Now let your mind open and see what you learn

.
When you are finished, close the spell with these words:

By the power of Wednesday’s witchery
This spell is sealed;
I set the magick free!

Allow the candle to burn out in a safe place. Clean up your other spell supplies. Save the feather or raven picture for future magick. Return the card to the tarot deck, and gather up all your runes. If you like, now is the perfect time to do a simple reading with your runes or your tarot cards. Ask for clarity and for insight, then draw three cards or stones and see what Odin has to say.
