From MoonGiant.com

The Moon’s current phase for today and tonight is a Waxing Gibbous phase. Visible through most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts about 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon rises in the east in mid-afternoon and is high in the eastern sky at sunset. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Visit the January 2023 Moon Phases Calendar to see all the daily moon phase for this month.

Today’s Waxing Gibbous Phase

The Waxing Gibbous on January 3 has an illumination of 89%. This is the percentage of the Moon illuminated by the Sun. The illumination is constantly changing and can vary up to 10% a day. On January 3 the Moon is 11.64 days old. This refers to how many days it has been since the last New Moon. It takes 29.53 days for the Moon to orbit the Earth and go through the lunar cycle of all 8 Moon phases.

Tarot Card

All the cards are from A Guide to The Celtic Dragon Tarot by D. J. Conway with illustrations by Lisa Hunt. Copyright 1999-page number for each card will appear under the specific card. All cards are from the Minor Arcana. The information for each card is directly from the guidebook with no part of the readings done by Lady Beltane because it is not a personal reading. This deck corresponds to the elements different than most tarot decks do. Also, there is no upside down meaning for any of the cards.

Lovers – Major Arcana

An emotional decision.

A Forest dragon stands on the bank of a lake, its neck outstretched to touch noses with a beautiful Water dragon that rises from the waters. The gaze at each other in love, unconcerned that their attraction  will prove difficult because of their very different lifestyles. For the moment, they are caught up in the power of their emotions. The Forest dragon represents the liner, analytical left brain and the conscious mind, while the Water dragon represents creativity, spiritually connected right mind and the conscious mind. To achieve success and reach goals, both halves of the brain, as well as the conscious and subconscious minds, must live and work together in harmony in order to reach a spiritual balance point. However, because of the vast differences in perceiving life and spirit, this is extremely difficult to maintain on a constant basis.  Thus, we go through life in a kind of dance, approaching, then retreating from the balance point. The heron, representing generation of life, and the butterfly, symbolizing the soul itself, reveal that we must always be aware of the soul and its need to grow, regardless of our emotional side-paths.

Divinatory Meaning

A romantic encounter may come into your life. You may be faced with an attraction or a temptation that may not be good for you. There will be an attraction of opposites that will be difficult to reconcile in the long run. A difficult choice will arise; make your decision on facts, not the emotions.



“Man-az” – Literally: “Mankind”

Esoteric: Humankind, awareness

Rune of the Divine structure of intelligence in the human soul or psyche. Rune of the horizons of human existence and collective potential.

Psi: mind & memory (Hugin & Munin), the difference between human and all other life, development of the intellect, rational mind, perfected intelligence

Energy: psychic order of the gods reflected in humankind, projection of Self into time

Mundane: thinking, planning, analysis, the human condition, people at large (contemporary: the masses)

Divinations: Divine structure, sustainability, intelligence, awareness, social order, divine influence in life; or depression, mortality, blindness, self-delusion, collective suicide, bigotry, elitism, intellectual arrogance.


Realization of the divine structure in humankind
Increase in intelligence, memory and mental powers (passing tests)
Unlocking the third-eye hvel, the “mind’s eye”
Activating the dynamics of your own inner Christus, or Higher Self
Awareness of our roles as co-creator with the gods and nature
Mental and spiritual potential

Witches’ Rune

The Wave

Meaning: This rune symbolizes your friends and family and their influence upon you. Its meaning is usually derived from the other stones closest to it. This rune is also associated with travel. A journey abroad is indicated especially if the Sun rune is nearby, but a journey for someone close to you if the Moon stone is closest. If it is near to the Rings it foretells a holiday or long distance relationship.




The Celts believed that hazelnuts gave inspiration and wisdom, even in many other cultures the hazel tree and it’s branches and nuts are used for protection. In Celtic mythology one of the greatest leaders named Fionn Mac Cumhail magically gained wisdom after eating salmon that sustained themselves upon hazelnuts. The ogham letter coll denotes wisdom, divination, and inspiration. Drawing this letter will give you a deeper look into you questions and concerns.

Fortune – Look inward to your own wisdom to gain the answer you seek. Be creative, be perceptive, this Ogham shows you already have the answer!

I Ching

Hexagram 45

Hexagram Forty-Five/45

Coming Together

General Meaning:
The power of gathering together is represented by a rally, where each individual’s strength is magnified by the power of their community. History has shown that mass movements can bring about stable, ordered and durable conditions for the better. This hexagram may be pointing to an auspicious time for large undertakings. But the guiding force of your shared vision is essential to hold the forces of unity together, and keep them advancing toward a common goals and values.

Another image for this situation is that of a lake filling with water. Just as the fullness of the lake can bring good fortune to all in its sphere, it can also overflow, leading to calamity. Thus in a time of gathering together it is essential that precautions against excesses be considered along with efforts to advance along a clearly-charted course. Much of human misfortune comes from unexpected events for which we are ill prepared; when gathered together with others, we are both more powerful and, in some ways, also more vulnerable.

Any time of unified coming together is a time of great potential. But the potential can be both positive and negative. Everything is magnified when people unite around a central shared purpose. When many people unite behind a single goal or strong vision, it is wise to take personal precautions to protect your own reasonable self-interests, because these can easily be lost in the crowd.

Spell for Today – Elemental Road Opener Spell: Wiccan Prayer to Unlock Paths

From spells8.com

Road opener rituals are great for finding the way out of a stagnant situation and moving forward in life. If you are feeling stuck or having a hard time with a specific problem 🔗, this simple spell might help you find the right course of action.

This is a road opening ritual inspired by Mexican bruja Yeel Maló, who works with the ray of Archangel Gabriel, the celestial messenger. The spell recipe on this page has been modified to invoke the Universal Elements instead.

You can dedicate this prayer to a different patron saint or deity. If you need inspiration for your devotional practice, visit today’s ruling deities or learn about the God and Goddess of Wicca.

How this Spell Works

Also known as “Abrecaminos“, a road opener prayer is similar to an uncrossing or block buster in Hoodoo or American rootwork. It directs the intention toward untangling, removing obstacles. This easy candle burning ritual will clear your thoughts toward finding the solution to any problem.

While you can find “road opener” oils and candles in many stores, this type of ritual can be done at home with only kitchen ingredients.

We will work with each of the 4 Elementals for a Wiccan ritual.
‣ A bowl of water will symbolize the Water Element 💧
‣ A crystal or gemstone for the Earth💎
‣ An incense stick for the Air ☁️
‣ And a candle for Fire 🔥

What incense should I use? Pick an aroma that matches your intention. You can browse the Green Witch course to learn about the properties of different herbs. Cinnamon is a great option because of its warm, comforting smell that sanctifies the ritual area.

If you don’t have a crystal or gemstone for this spell, use a bowl filled with kitchen salt instead.

Road Opener Wiccan Candle Ritual

Recipe by Francisco Huanaco

An easy road opener spell with a candle and a Wiccan prayer. Invoke the 4 elementals to clear and unlock solutions to your problems.


  • Bowl of water (regular drinking water)

  • 1 incense stick

  • 1 crystal or gemstone (pick one according to the day)

  • 1 white candle


  • Arrange your items on the altar. Each element will face one of the four directions: Water faces West. Air faces East. Earth faces North. Fire faces South.
  • Light the incense. The Air element is entering your ritual.
  • Rub your hands for a few seconds until you can feel a warm energy, visualize a ball of energy and hold your crystal, you are invoking the Earth element.
  • Light the candle to call upon the presence of the Fire element.
  • Gently dip a finger in the water to feel the company of the Water element. Water represents a state of flow, a mirror that can open the door to a new reality. This transforming energy will clear all blockages.
  • Chant the following road opener prayer:Road Opener prayer chant
  • Visualize an empty road. Meditate for a few minutes as you see yourself moving forward.
  • Let the candle burn completely and always practice candle safety. If you need to leave the room, put out the candle and continue burning it later.
  • Once the candle is burned, toss all remains away while saying Thank you. Keep the crystal close to you. If you need to invoke the power of this spell, rub your hands and hold it in your hands again.

More Information About Road Opener Spells

From spells8.com

What’s the best Moon phase for a road opener spell?

The New Moon or Waxing Crescent Moon phases are perfect for casting a road opener spell because they symbolize new beginnings. The start of a lunar cycle is ideal for spiritual works of renewal and fresh starts.

What day to do a road opener spell?

Any day of the week will work, but you can choose a specific day according to your intentions: If you’re working on a road opener for love, it’s best to do it on a Friday. If this is a job finding ritual, Sunday or Monday are your best options. For a great road opener spell for money, cast it on a Thursday instead.

What is “Abre Camino”?

Abre camino translates literally from Spanish as “Road opener”. Known as Common Boneset in English, Eupatorium villosum is native to the Caribbean and can be found mainly in Puerto Rico and Cuba.

Abre camino rituals don’t necessarily use the abrecamino plant, and sometimes use various other plants and ingredients.

When to do road opener spell?

Cast a road opener spell if you are feeling stuck in your current situation. For example, there are students who are in school and can’t advance or aren’t getting good enough grades. We say their paths are blocked. With a road opener ritual these paths will be cleared once and for all. Their mind will be clear and they will understand what they need to do in order to graduate or improve their grades.

If you are trying to buy or sell a house and feel that you’re stuck or can’t move forward with all the paperwork, this ritual is also very helpful. If you’re going through a court case or immigration procedure and feel that your case is not going anywhere or they’re not giving you any answers, this ritual will help you.

What does a road opener spell do?

Road opener rituals help remove anything that prevents you from moving forward.They offer a safe attempt to eliminate obstacles or barriers in a similar way to an Uncrossing Ritual. A road opener or unblocking ritual will help you change a circumstance that is adverse. We do with by placing the energy where it needs to be (the solution) and taking it away from where we don’t want it (the problem).

Many of these rituals include prayers to Catholic saints such as the road opener to St Cyprian or St Cajetan (San Cayetano). There are also novenas, long candle burning rituals and offerings for the opening of roads.

How to make this ritual more effective?

Take a cleansing bath before you begin. Use road opener herbs such as cinnamon, basil or lemon. Dress your candle with an essential oil that matches your intention.

Focus on the necessary opening for your situation. Many times we wish to open a door that we don’t really need to open. When you make a petition or wish, you can say: “I am receiving __________ and if this is not what I require, let the Universe show me what will bring me growth.”

Have faith. Everything that is done with great faith is ultimately achieved. Use the mental and spiritual energy that you naturally have. Whenever you are going to do cast a spell, put all your energy into it.

No January Monthly Posts as They are on the Yearly Posts

Merry meet and merry greet dear Sisters and Brothers in The Craft. I hope your year has started off on a positive note.

As you probably tell my New Year’s Eve Day and so far, New Year’s Day has been spent at my desk doing posts for your enjoyment and to be informed of things happening this year. After a total of 14 hours in 2 days my body is telling me it is time to rest it so I can get posts done tomorrow and so forth. Also, Big Dawg (formally Lord Beltane. He decided to pick a name for me to use on here…lol) would like to spend some time with me. So, with all of that said I figured since the January monthly posts are included at the top of the yearly posts there is no need to be repetitive by posting them separately.

I have tried many different keywords to find a Moon phase calendar that is just for January 2023 but no luck. If anyone feels like looking for one and emailing me at ladybeltane@witchesofthecraft.com with a link to one, I would really appreciate it.

It is time to make the finishing touches to our dinner so until tomorrow… Merry part and blessed be until we merry meet again. From me to every member of the WoTC family I send a big hug.

January 2, 2023 Birthday Horoscope

May the next year of your life be better than the past year! 

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope from sunsigns.org

JANUARY 2 birthday horoscope predicts you are a very gifted person. Yours is a Capricorn birthday. You have the talents of order and coordination because you need to take charge of things. Mind you, and this is no small matter. This is what puts your life in order. It is important to have goals and to cross those goals met off the list, is not always easy. But you can do it easily.

Someone special in your life will appreciate this trait, Capricorn, when he/she are older, and the financial burden is not so heavy. Be the patient person, as I know you are, with those that do not learn as quickly as you do. Having struggled in the beginning, you know what works and what does not.

January 2 astrology analysis predicts that only Saturn controls you and there is no place for the weak when it comes to honoring. January has Saturn ruling with a strong desire to achieve. This is your time to shine. This year is all brand new. The possibilities are up to you. I hope you are ready for an adventurous ride.

The January 2 horoscope forecasts that you should have connected with the right people by now who can give you the right kind of advice and support that you need to win. If not, start that campaign right away. Stay focused on your abilities, and your capabilities will be endless. The future of person who born on January 1 depends on how intuitive he or she can be.

People with January 2 zodiac sign Capricorn are an attentive and bright personality. Nobody knows that more than the people that are closest to you but it is somewhat tricky when it comes to getting to know the real you. The Capricorn man or woman can be most secretive at times, but your ability to remain silent makes you a good candidate to hold your friend’s confessions. You have a canning ability to deny anyone the privilege of extracting even the smallest of nonverbal clues.

Although you are a force to be reckoned with, Capricorns remain a private people yet. Listen, no one gets anywhere in life without the help of others. The Capricorn birthday astrology asks you to connect with those friends and lovers who too hold the same values and goals. On that note, you need to work on opening up and reveal the person you truly are if you are to develop new and perhaps, lasting business and personal relationships.

With your professional aspirations, career and family ties being just as important to you, at times it may be a bit of a juggling act sometimes to balance them both. If you have a compatible partner, he/she is a fortunate person. The January 2 birthday personality born today is compassionate and good-natured.

You tend to value relationships on a much higher level, so giving is “second nature“ to you. You work all the time why not enjoy the life you work so hard to be able to afford. One word of caution; beware of those that try to lead you astray. Tune into your instincts to help guide you through. The gut never lies. Pay close attention to your money. Matters may become complicated so watch out for those so-called deals.

Capricorns with birthdays on January 2nd, if you want to get pleasure from your retirement, take care of your health today. The obsession with your health could easily fall into the category of a difficult exercise and fitness program. Yes, it is true that there are advantages to holistic health and being fit but do not reject the medical practice as a means of taking care of your physical condition. Practice the rule of thumb: too much of anything is bad for you.

What your birthday says about you is you have to trust someone outside of your immediate circle. People are necessary for the equation. Open up, and you will find more people on your side that you realize with a few exceptions, of course. However, it is your year to succeed, and no one can stop that but you.

You can be your enemy. You will become so great at crossing those things off your list of aspirations; you will need a new list. At the same time, beware of obsessive behavior and use your self-control. Pick up a good self-help book and make the time to read it. You can do this! You are an amazing individual.

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 5 PM to 10 PM EST today (2 PM to 7 PM PST). After that, the Moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a tricky day because it’s a good day for financial wheeling and dealing and making purchases. Nevertheless, be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert. (See above.) Act, but act carefully.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a good day to finish an old writing project or revise previous travel plans. Meanwhile, it’s easy to impress others, which is why you might strike up a flirtation with a boss. (You feel sympathetic and empathetic with others today.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

With Mars in your sign, you can go after what you want. And what you want in the next few weeks is a chance to travel for pleasure! You want to see the world and have adventure! Really, you need a change of scenery. Even if it’s just the next town.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Ex-partners or an old friend from the past might be in the picture today. (Probably a female.) Meanwhile, romantic affection is strong! Who knows where this combination will lead? Be aware there’s an element of confusion and doubt present. Don’t do anything you will later regret.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Although you are working hard now, Mercury retrograde will create silly, stupid mistakes as well as delays and misplaced items. Just grin and bear it because this won’t last for long. On the upside, it can help you finish old business.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a playful, creative day! Some will be titillated by flirtations with an old flame or flattered to hear from someone from the past. Give free rein to your creative ideas. Enjoy social outings, especially with old friends, as well as sports events and fun times with kids.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might be in touch with a relative you haven’t talked to for a while. This is a good day to tackle home repairs that you’ve been meaning to do. However, it’s also a lovely day to schmooze and have fun with friends. Enjoy!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A conversation with siblings or relatives you haven’t seen for a while is likely today. Quite possibly, you are entertaining at home? You might also redecorate where you live because you want to socialize with family right now. Stock the fridge.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today is a good day to wrap up old financial matters or deal with loose ends. Meanwhile, your ability to communicate with neighbours and relatives is excellent because you feel genuine affection for others. You also appreciate your daily surroundings more than usual.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re in charge of things because the Sun is in your sign. However, Mercury retrograde is also in your sign causing you to make silly, goofy mistakes, misplaced things and arrive late at meetings. (Embarrassing.) You might like to shop for beautiful things today. If so – check the Moon Alert. (See above.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be aware that today is an excellent day for you to buy wardrobe items for yourself. However, there is a Moon Alert today. Simply avoid that window of time and shop for something that makes you look great in the eyes of others. (Hey — you never get a second chance to make a first impression.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might be in contact with an old friend today or a member of a group to which you belong or used to belong. Whatever happens, you will find that you feel sympathetic and interested in what this person is to say. If you can help them – you will.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Tia Carrere (1967) shares your birthday today. You are generous and caring. Because you are ambitious and have high expectations for yourself, you work hard. This will be a thrilling year for you because it’s the first year of a fresh nine-year cycle for you. Therefore, be open to new avenues. Open new doorways. Be courageous and adventurous!

Lady Carla Beltane January’s Gratitude and Afirmation Lists

I try to write a personal gratitude and affirmation lists on the first of every month. I place it on the top of my clipboard that has some of my more used passwords, current month’s budget, and other miscellaneous paperwork I like to keep close at hand when I am working. Yes, my full-time job is all parts of WoTC – the website/blog, School of Witchcraft, Life in The Craft magazine, chats and Sabbat gatherings with the school’s Heart’s Spirit Coven, answering emails, reviewing novice and adept level apprentices lessons. Besides doing different types of divination readings, clearing auras and chakras, cleansing, and blessing clients’ homes. I also do Handfastings, Wiccanings, and Crossing the Veil ceremonies. So I do get burned out some days and that’s when my gratitude and affirmation lists is very helpful.

You might want to write one or both lists yourself. They can help you, as they do me, to feel better on days everything seems to be going wrong by being able to read all the positive things in your life

Lady B’s Gratitude list

I’m grateful for having a warm, dry, cozy home

I’m grateful for having my twin flame, Big Dawg, in my life and the love he shows me in many ways every day and that he totally accepts me for me, including supporting my spiritual and magickal path

I’m grateful for having enough food and beverages in our home for humans and fur kids

I’m grateful for the love I give to and receive from all 4 fur kids (we have a blended family-Big Dawg had 2 large breeds and I had 2 toy breeds when we moved in together. Amazingly, they all get along from day 1)

I’m grateful we could get each other a little something for this past Yule/Christmas (Big Dawg follows some Christian beliefs)

I’m grateful for my Social Security Disability monthly payments

I’m grateful to have good health insurance

I’m grateful we should be able to catch up our bills that fell behind when we had covid

I’m grateful to have a website dedicated to the Goddess (and Gods) where I can share information with others

I’m grateful for having a way to mentor young (in The Craft, not age) witches

Lady B’s Affirmation List

I am beautiful even with some extra weight

I can get posts done everyday.

It doesn’t matter if posts go live a little late

I can take my 2 fur girls for a walk everyday

It is OK not to be liked by everyone

Being a Pagan Witch doesn’t make me a bad person

It is fine to be out of the broom closet and wear a pentacle proudly

A Thought for Today

Dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may the Great Mother and Great Father, Lord and Lady, bless you and your family with all things positive!

The Various Colors of Witchcraft – White Magick


The Various Colors of Witchcraft – White Magick

The White Witch

O brothers mine, take care! Take care!
The great white witch rides out to-night.
Trust not your prowess nor your strength,
Your only safety lies in flight;
For in her glance there is a snare,
And in her smile there is a blight.

The great white witch you have not seen?
Then, younger brothers mine, forsooth,
Like nursery children you have looked
For ancient hag and snaggle-tooth;
But no, not so; the witch appears
In all the glowing charms of youth.

Her lips are like carnations, red,
Her face like new-born lilies, fair,
Her eyes like ocean waters, blue,
She moves with subtle grace and air,
And all about her head there floats
The golden glory of her hair.

But though she always thus appears
In form of youth and mood of mirth,
Unnumbered centuries are hers,
The infant planets saw her birth;
The child of throbbing Life is she,
Twin sister to the greedy earth.

And back behind those smiling lips,
And down within those laughing eyes,
And underneath the soft caress
Of hand and voice and purring sighs,
The shadow of the panther lurks,
The spirit of the vampire lies.

For I have seen the great white witch,
And she has led me to her lair,
And I have kissed her red, red lips
And cruel face so white and fair;
Around me she has twined her arms,
And bound me with her yellow hair.

I felt those red lips burn and sear
My body like a living coal;
Obeyed the power of those eyes
As the needle trembles to the pole;
And did not care although I felt
The strength go ebbing from my soul.

Oh! she has seen your strong young limbs,
And heard your laughter loud and gay,
And in your voices she has caught
The echo of a far-off day,
When man was closer to the earth;
And she has marked you for her prey.

She feels the old Antaean strength
In you, the great dynamic beat
Of primal passions, and she sees
In you the last besieged retreat
Of love relentless, lusty, fierce,
Love pain-ecstatic, cruel-sweet.

O, brothers mine, take care! Take care!
The great white witch rides out to-night.
O, younger brothers mine, beware!
Look not upon her beauty bright;
For in her glance there is a snare,
And in her smile there is a blight.

James Weldon Johnson, 1871 – 1938

White Witchcraft

White magic has traditionally referred to the use of supernatural powers or magic for selfless purposes. With respect to the philosophy of left-hand path and right-hand path, white magic is the benevolent counterpart of malicious black magic. Because of its ties to traditional pagan nature worship, white magic is often also referred to as “natural magic”.

In his 1978 book, A History of White Magic, recognised occult author Gareth Knight traces the origins of white magic to early adaptations of paleolithic religion and early religious history in general, including the polytheistic traditions of Ancient Egypt and the later monotheistic ideas of Judaism and early Christianity.

In particular, he traced many of the traditions of white magic to the early worship of local “gods and goddesses of fertility and vegetation who were usually worshipped at hill-top shrines” and were “attractive to a nomadic race settling down to an agricultural existence”. He focuses in particular on the nomadic Hebrew-speaking tribes and suggests that early Jews saw the worship of such deities more in terms of atavism than evil. It was only when the polytheistic and pagan Roman Empire began to expand that Jewish leaders began to rally against those ideas.

During the Renaissance
By the late 15th century, natural magic “had become much discussed in high-cultural circles”. “Followers” of Marsilio Ficino advocated the existence of spiritual beings and spirits in general, though many such theories ran counter to the ideas of the later Age of Enlightenment. While Ficino and his supporters were treated with hostility by the Roman Catholic Church, the Church itself also acknowledged the existence of such beings; such acknowledgement was the crux of campaigns against witchcraft. Ficino, though, theorised a “purely natural” magic that did not require the invocation of spirits, malevolent or malicious. In doing so, he came into conflict with Johannes Trithemius who refused to believe in Ficino’s theory but created spells and incantations of his own related to beneficial communication with spirits. His works, including the Steganographia, were not published until the 17th century and were then immediately placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum where they remained until the 20th century. Trithemius’ “disciple” Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa was responsible for publishing some of his work and in turn created his own. His work included the De occulta philosophia libri tres which contained an outline of, among other things, classical elements, numerology, astrology and kabbalah and detailed ways of utilizing these relationships and laws in medicine, scrying, alchemy and rituals and ceremonies. Giambattista della Porta expanded on many of these ideas in his Magia Naturalis.

It is the coming-together of these ideas – early “natural” religions and later philosophical thinking – that Knight suggests is “at the root of the Western tradition of white magic”. Also at the root of white magic are symbols and religious symbolism in particular. The star, Knight gives as example, was of critical importance to Jewish tradition and then to early Christians (like the Star of David) and to later Masonic tradition and Neo-paganism.It continues to be of importance of white magic practitioners in the form of the pentagram and night-time ritual.

Zambelli goes further and suggests that white magic – though then not specifically distinct from its counterpart black magic – grew as the more acceptable form of occult and pagan study in the era of the Inquisition and anti-witchcraft sentiment. If black magic was that which involved Trithemius’ invocation of demons, Ficino’s “purely natural” white magic could be framed as the study of “natural” phenomena in general with no evil or irreligious intent whatsoever. Zambelli places academics like Giordano Bruno in this category of “clandestine” practitioners of magic.

Modern interpretations
In his 2009 book, Magic and Alchemy, Robert M. Place provides a broad modern definition of both black and white magic, preferring instead to refer to them as “high magic” (white) and “low magic” (black) based primarily on intentions of the practitioner employing them. His modern definition maintains that the purpose of white magic is to “do good” or to “bring the practitioner to a higher spiritual state” of enlightenment or consciousness. He acknowledges, though, that this broader definition (of “high” and “low”) suffers from prejudices as good-intentioned folk magic may be considered “low” while ceremonial magic involving expensive or exclusive components may be considered by some as “high magic”, regardless of intent.

According to Place, effectively all prehistoric shamanistic magic was “helping” white magic and thus the basic essence of that magic forms the framework of modern white magic: curing illness or injury, divining the future or interpreting dreams, finding lost items, appeasing spirits, controlling weather or harvest and generating good luck or well-being.

Goddess worship
Though not exclusively a female pursuit, modern white magic is often associated with stereotypically feminine concepts like that of a Mother goddess, fae, nature spirits, oneness with nature and goddess worship.In modern stories or fairy tales, the idea of “white witchcraft” is often associated with a kindly grandmother or caring motherly spirit. The link between white magic and a Mother Earth is a regular theme of practitioner Marian Green’s written work.


White Witchcraft

Practiced to provide good intentions to the people around you.

The practitioners are often said to have a Wiccan faith. This is a religion which is guided by modern pagan beliefs. It allows one to look in the earth and aspire for its development.

Practitioners believe in the threefold return. This belief says that for every good action you make, the return of this is three times in magnitude. This also applies in the bad side. However Wiccan practice does not encourage bad practices in life.

Practitioners normally utilize prayers and rituals. They use spells to provide luck to the people around them.

Practitioners also use objects which are highly useful for witchcraft. Some witches utilize talismans and crystals. They are said to benefit a lot from such objects.


Understanding White Witchcraft

White witchcraft is a common theme in movies and TV stories, but it’s a bit more of a tricky subject than you might think. If you have already done some study into Wicca or witchcraft, you probably already have a little introduction into the differences between black and white magic spells.

If you have decided to work with white witchcraft, that generally means you will only cast spells with positive intention and not do any hexing or curses. Of course, not everything can be labelled quite so neatly and you may have some thinking to do about your intentions when it gets into some of those in-between gray areas.

A curse is a clear type of “black magic” but what about a binding to just keep someone away from you? Some would say that it’s not harmful, but some might still see it as a negative approach to interfering with another person’s free will.
Some people feel that the whole concept of white magic is impossible to achieve anyway because everything you do will effect someone else, and that can end up with all kinds of consequences that go way beyond your original intentions.

Instead of worrying about the details, just live your life in a good way and don’t deliberately try to hurt people. That’s usually good enough. Of course, sometimes other people deserve some negative energy but that’s another topic altogether.

Sometimes people add the “white witchcraft” label to themselves just to make other people feel less nervous. So many people misunderstand what witchcraft is that they need a little (meaningless) assurance that we’re not evil.

So if you are looking to get involved in white witchcraft, that really just means you have a positive attitude when you cast spells and that you never seek to harm another person. Pretty much all the spells on this site would fall into that category, but I do have a few pages specifically on white magick spells that you can check out.


White Witches

White magic is different from black magic because of its purposes. While the latter induces harm or pain from the other party, white magic is cast for the welfare or the good of the person who will benefit from it. Fortunately, a white witch has more power than a black witch. In this case, we can expect that the good will always win over the bad.

For what purpose do White witches use White Magic?
For its great deal of power, white magic is used to bring good or protect people from black magic curses or spells. A white witch also uses her power to destroy or break any types of black magic. White magic protects an individual from the harms caused by black magic.

There are certain spells and magic that white witches can do for you. One of them is the love spell which is the most popular among other spells because we all deserved to feel love and to love. It is the most in-demand forms of white magic as it is to cast love spells on the apple of your eyes. Also, it is used to bring back lost love, to strengthen an existing bond, or to attract a new lover.

In addition, it also protects people in a relationship. For instance, couples can get the services of a white witch to protect their marriage and prevent them from getting separated or divorced. Aside from that, there are also specific cases you can be helped by white witches like lost love, soul mate, anti-lying spells, and lust, among others.

Aside from relationship spells, there are also things your white witch can do when it comes to money and finances. It is another in-demand branch of white magic that is commonly used- money spells.

If you want to become a successful businessman, it is one of the beat spells that you can have because it can take your business and financial status to the next level especially if you follow procedure instructed by your white witch. This type of white magic is one of the most commonly requested by people when it comes to their economic status.

This type of spell will drive money to you; thus, adding more fund onto your bank account. If you need some financial gain this year, hire an expert witch to perform this spell for you. Aside from helping you get more money, you will also have the chance to manage your business effectively.

Moreover, there is also the healing spell that your white witch can perform for you in order to get you rid off your sickness. It is also one of the most requested types of white spells that you can ask from your expert witch.

If you’re loved one is sick, you can also consult this witch to help him recover from his sickness, pain, or injury. This type of healing spell is used to help people who are affected by a certain disorder in their emotional, mental, or physical being.

These are three of the most prominent spells that your white witch can perform for you. To guarantee perfect and desired results, you have to make sure that you also have the pure intention.
