Let’s Talk Witch – Characteristics of a True Witch

Land OF the Druids

Let’s Talk Witch – Characteristics of a True Witch

In general, “witch” is a term that refers to a female sorcerer or wizard.  However, a sorcerer or a wizard is usually a male who is inclined to be manipulative in his craft.  A witch, on the other hand, is a deeply religious individual who is usually pure in heart and practices witchcraft through combining meditation and spiritual elements.  In addition, a witch is a gifted individual who may seem to have supernatural abilities.  A witch displays compassion and practices witchcraft without any hidden motives.  More often than not, a witch works for others who are suffering and in pain, bringing them relief and comfort.

Generally, a witch is often misunderstood as an evil individual and maligned for bringing unfortunate circumstances to another person.  However, in today’s society, witches along with their beliefs and practices have regained their lost ground and earned the respect of the society.  The term witch is now being brought back to its old name, Wicca.

There are several characteristics of a true witch.  By true, it means a witch whose beliefs and practices correspond with theWiccan Rede, “As it harm none, do as thou wilt.”  For instance, a witch employs witchcraft for healing, especially of unexplained health problems.

Normally, a witch uses her personal abilities or powers combined with energies from candles, herbs, stones, and other natural materials.  A witch employs witchcraft to ameliorate mankind as well as the world.  A witch does not hurt people and more importantly, she does not worship the devil.

A witch derives her strength primarily from nature including earth, water, air, and fire.  She believes that water is able to purify; fire is able to cleanse and transport an individual into the spiritual world; and air enshrouds an individual and lifts them to the freedom of the skies and divine immenseness.  A witch believes that the air unites with her spirit, allowing it to float in the sky freely.  A witch reaches an uplifted state through perseverance and meditation.  In some cases, a witch is born with special talents that allow her to achieve an uplifted state more easily than other individuals.

In reality, a witch is not a wicked being or an ugly hag as depicted in most books, movies, and other forms of media.  She is just an ordinary looking person who can be your next-door neighbor.  She can be a hardworking housewife who attends to the needs of her family and does daily chores.

A witch also has emotions although she can function at a larger level rather than personal.  For instance, if she is sad, it can be caused by the world’s suffering and not just because of a personal matter.

A female witch is different from an ordinary woman in the sense that the former can connect with her goddess.  This connection is intended for her soul to achieve a state of oneness.

A witch carries out her craft by utilizing a number of rituals alone or with a coven.  More often than not, rituals are done in an altar room filled with the smell of incense while candles are lit, and chants or incantations are spoken.  Witchcraft rituals usually involve meditating while staring into the candle flames.  Once a witch enters into a trance, she dances with the power of the fire coming from the candles.  Consequently, she sees images in her head that become a permanent part of her psyche.

A true witch does not do anything to utilize witchcraft to damage a living or non-living thing. Given that a witch believes that retaliation can be a lot worse than her act.  A true witch believes that whatever you do, regardless if it is good or bad, will come back to you threefold.

Although it can be difficult to determine if someone you know or someone who lives just next door is a witch, some witches wear a Pentacle or pentagram, which looks like a five-pointed star.  A pentagram is a symbol that represents the five elements of nature.  It does not represent the worship of anything but nature.

Wednesday Is Ruled By Mercury

Wednesdays are wild and wacky days. They are for communication, change, cunning, and the arts. This is a Mercury day, and just its patron god this day is full of contradictions, change, and excitement. Some suggestions for Wednesday enchantments would include:

Pulling a little Wednesday color magic into your life by wearing purples or orange

Carrying a multipurpose agate with you and tapping into its various charms

Working with magical plants such as the fern for protection. This plant will also boost the power of any other magical plants with which it is arranged.

Incorporating lavender into charms and spells for transformation

Using the charming scent of lily of the valley to improve your memory, or working with the aspen tree for communication

Calling on Athena, patron of arts and crafts, for inspiration for a new project

Aspects of the Moon in Sagittarius

Aspects of the Moon in Sagittarius

Sagittarius = Motion

When the Moon is in Sagittarius, we emerge from clandestine soul searching of Moon in Scorpio, to roam the world go roaming. This lunar mood is adventurous, active and restless to experience life first hand. It puts us in a risk-taking mood. You want to get outdoors, ride your bike, take a brisk walk or ride horses.

There’s a need to be in motion, and you get restless if you’re bogged down with mundane chores.

The Moon relates to instinct, and the Archer inspires a hunger for fresh experiences. It’s time to be on the go!

The truth flows more freely, and sometimes it comes out with blunt force. It’s a great time to ‘tell it like it is.’ You can convey your message matter-of-factly and with enthusiasm. There’s less emotional weight to what’s said, and that frees everyone up to be honest. You want to feel free of heavy duty entanglements today, and keep things light and fun.
Big Picture Views

The Moon in Sagittarius heightens curiosity. We’re willing to cross genres and disciplines to “connect the dots” with leaps of logic.

Conversations speed up, and the big picture comes into view. It’s a good time to weave in different elements to expand the scope of your creative projects. The theme is covering a lot of ground, either physically or intellectually. It inspires us to scan the horizon for things that light us up, and can be goals to move toward.

Some power activities now are: philosophizing with friends; making travel plans or traveling; socializing; making new friends; creative improvisation; inspiring yourself and others; watching comedies; riding horses; walking dogs; trying new exotic cuisine; working out vigorously; making love gymnastically; do some strength and endurance training.

The Moon sets the emotional tone as it transits through the Zodiac signs. It changes signs every 2 1/2 days. You can work with this rhythm to “go with the flow” of the Moon. You can use it to know the general feeling tone to expect.

The Witches Daily Applications for Wednesday

celtic druids
The Witches Daily Applications for Wednesday

To the Romans, this day was called Dies Mercurii, or “Mercury’s day” Mercury was a popular character in the Roman pantheon. A messenger of the gods, he presided over commerce, trade, and anything that required skill or dexterity. The Celts also worshiped Mercury and eventually equated him with the Norse god Odin (some spelling variations on this name include Wotan, Wodin, and Wodan). In Norse mythologies, Odin, like Mercury, is associated with poetry and music. Interestingly enough, both Odin and Mercury were regarded as psychopomps, or the leaders of souls, in their individual mythologies

Odin, one of the main gods in Norse mythology, was constantly seeking wisdom. He traveled the world in disguise as a one-eyed man with a long gray beard, wearing an old, beat-up hat and carrying a staff or a spear (which brings to my mind images of Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings). In the Old English language, this day of Mercury evolved into Wodnes daeg, “Woden’s day,” or Wednesday.
Wednesday carries all of the planetary and magickal energies and associations of the witty and nimble god Mercury himself. Some of these mercurial traits included good communication skills, cleverness, intelligence, creativity, business sense, writing, artistic talent, trickiness, and thievery. And don’t forget all of those wise and enigmatic qualities associated with the Norse god Odin/Wodin, not to mention the goddess Athena’s contributions of music, the arts, handmade crafts, and writing. Wednesdays afford excellent opportunities for seeking wisdom, changing your circumstances, and improving your skills, be they in trade and commerce, music and art, or in communication and writing.

The Witches Guide To Wednesday

 

Ruler: Wodin, Mercury

Colors: Orange, light blue, and gray

Power Hours: Sunrise and the 8th, 16th, and 24th hours following

Keywords: Success, creativity, communication

The word Wednesday is reminiscent of the Norse wind god Wodin, which is referenced in the popular rhyme verse “Wednesday’s child is full of woe.” This does not mean that those born on this day are full of sorrow or trouble. To be full of Woden (Wodin) means to be full of wind, to be spirited. Woden was such a powerful pagan god that the German church fathers changed the name of his day to Mittwoch, meaning midweek, in an attempt to exorcise his influence.

In the Spanish word for Wednesday, miercoles, we clearly see its connection to Mercury. Under the guidance of Mercury; Wednesday is a day of swift activity, communication, correspondence, and phone calls. This is a good day for journalists, writers, poets, bargaining, hiring employees, and visiting friends.

On Wednesdays, the hour of sunrise and every eight hours after that are also ruled by Mercury, making these times of the day doubly blessed. These are the strongest four hours for ritual work. Check your local newspaper, astrological calendar, or almanac to determine when sunrise occurs.

On Wednesday, July 5th, We Honor the Goddess Yemanja

On Wednesday, July 5th, We Honor the Goddess Yemanja

 

YEMANJA, THE SANTERIA GODDESS of the ocean, is believed to be the daughter of the earth goddess Oddudua, and the sister and wife of the god Aganju. As the mother of the fourteen gods and goddesses who make up the pantheon, Yemanja occupies an exalted position in the Santeria religion.

Santeria developed during the nineteenth century from the Yoruba religion practiced by enslaved Africans who were brought to Cuba to work on sugarcane plantations. plantations. Since the Yoruba were not allowed to practice their native beliefs, they camouflaged their rituals with the symbols of the Roman Catholicism they were forced to observe; one example of this is the affinity of the goddess Yemanja to the Virgin Mary. By this practice, the Yoruba remained loyal to their orishas, or deities, and avoided detection and punishment. The Santeria religion spread from Cuba, where it originated, through the Caribbean to North and South America. It is still widely practiced today.

At some time in their lives, each practitioner of Santeria chooses one of the gods or goddesses to be their spiritual parent. Those who are the children of Yemanja try to please the goddess in many ways. Since seven is the number sacred to Yemanja, they wear seven silver bracelets on their arms. They also burn candles as blue as the ocean Yemanja rules. Beautiful blue and crystal beads, strung into necklaces as ethereal as iridescent moonlight upon the sea, adorn their necks.

Cosmic Weather for July 2017

Lady of the Druids
Cosmic Weather for July 2017

by Jane Lyle

Thought for July:

‘No one can flatter himself that he is immune to the spirit of his own epoch, or even that he possesses a full understanding of it.

Irrespective of our conscious convictions, each one of us, without exception, being a particle of the general mass, is somewhere attached to, coloured by, or even undermined by the spirit which goes through the mass. Freedom stretches only as far as the limits of our consciousness.’

Welcome to July 2017. A playful time, potentially, bubbles up alongside Sun and Mars in Leo later in July. We’ll crave fun, beauty, holidays and laughter to counterbalance the numerous weightier concerns and shifting shadows around us.

But July begins with a serious – even sombre – mood, as we look back over recent years and wonder how we can make vital changes in our world. An intense full Moon on the 9th is an emotional wake-up call too. Striving for balance is crucial, for creating harmony within ourselves and in the natural world around us is our huge collective challenge. So here’s to love, hope, and peace this July – there’s work to be done.

The Sky This Week for July 5 to July 9

The Sky This Week for July 5 to July 9

Pluto’s peak appearance, a globular cluster in Ophiuchus, and other amazing things to look for in the sky this week.

By Richard Talcott

 

Wednesday, July 5

Despite the Moon’s presence, this week offers a good opportunity for binocular users to track down one of summer’s finest open star clusters. NGC 6231 lies in the tail of Scorpius the Scorpion, just 0.5° north of the double star Zeta (z) Scorpii (which is another fine binocular sight). NGC 6231 shines at magnitude 2.6 and packs more than 100 stars into a region about half the width of the Full Moon. This part of Scorpius lies nearly due south after darkness falls, though it doesn’t climb high from mid-northern latitudes.

Thursday, July 6

The waxing gibbous Moon passes just 3° north of Saturn this evening, helping point the way to the magnificent ringed planet. The two are on display nearly all night among the background stars of southern Ophiuchus, hanging in the southeastern sky as darkness falls and climbing high in the south by midnight local daylight time. The pair will look nice with the naked eye or binoculars, but telescope users will want to choose another night this week when the Moon isn’t so close to target the magnitude 0.1 planet. Saturn reached its peak just three weeks ago, when it appeared opposite the Sun in the sky, and our view of the ringed planet remains spectacular. A telescope reveals the world’s 18″-diameter disk surrounded by a dramatic ring system that spans 41″ and tilts 27° to our line of sight.

The Moon reaches apogee, the farthest point in its orbit around Earth, at 12:28 a.m. EDT. It then lies 252,236 miles (405,934 kilometers) from Earth’s center.

Friday, July 7

This week offers observers their first peek of Mercury during its current evening apparition. The innermost planet stands 6° high in the west-northwest a half-hour after sunset tonight. Although Mercury glows brightly, at magnitude –0.6, you might need binoculars to spot it initially against the twilight glow. A telescope reveals the planet’s disk, which spans 5.6″ and appears 80 percent lit.

Saturday, July 8

Full Moon officially arrives at 12:07 a.m. EDT tomorrow morning, but it looks completely illuminated all night. It appears low in the southeast as the Sun sets and climbs highest in the south around 1 a.m. local daylight time. The Full Moon resides among the background stars of Sagittarius the Archer throughout the night.

Sunday, July 9

Tonight marks the peak of Pluto’s 2017 appearance. The distant world reaches opposition, which means it lies opposite the Sun in our sky and remains visible all night. It glows dimly at 14th magnitude, however, so you’ll need an 8-inch or larger telescope with good optics to spot it visually. Pluto currently lies in northeastern Sagittarius, some 1.8° east-southeast of 3rd-magnitude Pi (p) Sagittarii. See “In pursuit of Pluto” in the July Astronomy for complete details on finding this world.
