Pagan and Magickal Terms and Definitions

Today’s Word is

Folk Magick


Practice of magick utilizing personal power in conjunction with natural tools and objects, most often in a non-religious framework. May refer specifically to old folk traditions and customs. Sometimes used to refer to a style of Witchcraft and/or spellcasting that does not follow formal and ceremonial approaches to spells and rituals; more loose in form, though still containing the necessary aspects required for effective magick. May be referred to as “low magick” which was a classist term used to differentiate the folk magick of peasants from the ceremonial magick of the elite classes.
