The Perfect Magickal Spells for Your Sunday

 

The Perfect Magickal Spells for Your Sunday

Finally, it’s Sunday, the official day of rest. Not only do Christians acknowledge this day, but I’m sure many pagans appreciate this day, as well. Everyone needs rest and a lot of people need a good day to worship their creator(whomever or whatever that may be), however they deem fit to do so. With the Sun being the central theme of many ancient rituals, Sunday just seems to fit, in name and theory. Not only is it a good day to worship, it seems good to do more relaxed spells, such as sleep, dream, and rebirth.

 

A Spell for While you Sleep

You will need the following items for this spell:

Four lengths of appropriately coloured ribbon
which can be easily tied
Four pins
Your bed

Knot magic has a particular effect in ‘binding’ or fixing a spell in place and with the addition of colour it is possible to use ribbons to bring about a desired outcome. By using your own bed as a focus, your magical work can be done while you sleep. This is a very personal way of working and one which can bring particularly positive results.

If your bed has bedposts, simply knot a length of the correct colour ribbon for your purpose around each post.

Each time you do this, say:

With this knot of coloured ribbon

Bring to me the power hidden. Grant me that right Throughout this night.

If your bed has no posts then carefully pin the knotted ribbon to each corner using the same words.
Each night for two further nights touch each ribbon knot in turn and repeat the words above.

Leave the ribbons in place until you no longer feel the need for them. You can expect to have some fairly vivid dreams over the following three nights, which may help you to develop the qualities you seek. This spell allows your unconscious self to work in a protected space without the chatter of day to day matters.

 

To Protect a Sleeping Mind

You will need the following items for this spell:

Voice

Sleep is the time of dreams and visits. The following incantation repeated aloud at one’s bedtime will aid in the discouraging of unwanted visitors in the dreaming mind.

Before retiring for the night, repeat the following incantation aloud:

”Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea,

Draw close and circle round

Mine mind I clear and lend to sleep.

That sleep will use to rest the weary world

Let not the world and those unfavorable things within it

Visit upon mine mind unheralded

Uninvited visitors be sent away

Turned back

Turned back to the dark depths

Turned back to the sender whose name is never spoken

That thus he may gain strength

Gain strength and threaten those unable

Unable or unknowing

Unknowing or innocent

Innocents in the world

Sleeping as I sleep

Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea

Find favor and protect mine mind

Find favor and protect the innocents”.

This is best repeated nightly so as to protect ones mind and allow peaceful sleep and promote quiet dreams.

 

To Drive Away Bad Dreams

You will need the following items for this spell:

Bowl of warm water
Salt
Your chosen sprigs of herbs
String

This spell uses herbal magick and correspondences to clear the bedroom of negative influence. It is often a good idea to use material that is easily available, so you might use sprigs of rosemary, sage, Lady’s bedstraw, maize silks or broom-corn. Since you want something taken away you should perform this magical working as the Moon wanes.

Dissolve the salt in the warm water.

Tie the herbs together.

Dip the sprigs in the water and sprinkle the corners of the room with the water.

Use the sprigs to sprinkle the salt water on your bedclothes, and particularly round the head and foot of the bed.

When you have done this, place the herbs under your pillow, or if you prefer, under the middle of the bed.

The next morning, discard the herbs at a crossroads if you can, either by burying them or allowing them to disperse to the four winds. Otherwise ensure that you have carried them well away from your home.
This carries all negativity away from your bedroom and bed. This spell uses rosemary which brings clarity, sage for wisdom, ladies bedstraw which is said to have lined the manger at Christs birth, and broom corn, which is used in worship of the Mexican goddess Chicomecohuatl. All these herbs bring cleansing, not just of the room but also of the occupants aura or subtle energy. On the basis that one should always replace negative with positive, you may like to use the following technique to bring about positive dreams.

Having prepared your environment, this next technique is of most use when there is a strong, deeply felt association with the issue or request being considered in magical terms, ideal conditions for spell working. It is like being able to consult an encyclopedia that contains a wealth of information in fact, the Higher Self.

Flashback 2004 Lammas

(This is written for the Northern Hemisphere in 2004. The date of August 7th is wrong for 2022 the Southern or Northern Hemisphere)

Lammas

Lammas is the first of the harvest festivals, a celebration of ripening grains and grapes. If you celebrate traditionally on the second, the planetary energies offer a for great creative energy, drama, and joy. If you celebrate on the astrologically on August 7 at 15 degrees of Leo, the Moon will aid a ceremony with great magic and mystery.

The Sun is wanning, but still holding sway in the sky. A day of circle dances and foot races will honor the Sun; be certain the music encourages exuberant joy. If you planted wheat in a pot or plot, this is the day to ritually harvest it. Use some to make a Brigid’s cross; save a few stalks to return to the earth as compost next spring and lend continuity from harvest to sowing to harvest.

If corn is your grain of choice, bring ripe ears to the altar and use the husks to make corn dollies for use at Imbolc. Indian corn can be dried, ground, and used in corn bread. Make a fiery incense with dragon’s blood and hot herbs like ginger or galangal. Do a ritual at a sacred spot — a well or tree or sacred hill. Use the colors of green and gold and orange for your altar, and encourage everyone to wear them. The harvest has just begun.

Flashback 2004 Imbolc

 Imbolc

Celebrate this festival by draping the altar in white and silver. Kepp the entire altar white — white candlesticks, white incense bowls, etc. Represent the Goddess with a figure of a horned cow. If you wear robes in ritual, honor Brigid in her guise as the goddess of the dairy by wearing white. With Neptune lending the glamour to your robes to the Sun this time, as glitter to your robes with sliver and “diamonds.” Let your imagination run wild.

Save snow from the last storm, or use crushed ice, and put it out in bowls on the altar. Scrub clean an old milke bottle or cream jar and fill it with fresh milk; freshly made mozzarella cheese will round out your cakes and ale. Nestle all bowls in the snow.

The planetary energies are particularly favorable this sabbat for working magic for world peace. Place all the candles you’ll be using this year on the altar and start this ritual in the dark — this is, without lights. Add your magic to the returning Sun. Dedicate and consecrate all your candles during this festival of lights, and consecrate your agricultural tools for use in the coming cycle of growth. This is the festival of new beginnings.

Friday is the sixth day of the week, but used to be the seventh, the Sabbath of the Jewish lunar calendar.   The name, Friday,  is derived from the Nordic goddess, Frigg, Frigga, Freyja, Freya, or Frija (Germanic), considered to be the mother of all.  She is the Goddess of love and war, fertility and death.   She is the leader of the Valkyries and the Disir (Divine Grandmothers), and creator of Seidr magic.  Her symbols are the cat and the Brisingamen, which is the magic necklace of the rainbow bridge.  Freya’s Roman and Greek counterparts are Venus and Aphrodite, goddesses of love and beauty.

There’s a reason out of all the days of the week, Friday is commonly dubbed ‘date night’.  Why? Because Fridays are overseen by the angel Anael, who’s name means ‘Star of love’.  Anael is one of the angels considered to have helped with the creation of the heavens and earth.  If Anael doesn’t convince you that Fridays are for lovers, then perhaps knowing this day is ruled by Venus might give you confirmation.  Venus is symbolic of love, sensuality, creativity and relationships. Of course, love and loving isn’t exclusive to Friday. Everyday of the week is an opportunity for love.  However, Friday is most auspicious for connecting with others on a loving level.  This doesn’t mean you have to have a date, or a mate.  You can augment your intensity of love on Friday by showing affection to your pets, your family and/or your friends. You get the idea.

Open Chats, Esbat or Sabbat Gathering Will be Returning, Along With the WOTC School of Witchcraft

I had a busy second half of 2020 and most of 2021 with moving and huge changes in my personal life. I also want to be totally honest here part of the reason I was not holding gatherings and open chats is I was allowing my anxiety disorder as a wall to hide behind and an excuse not to do what I should be doing not only for those who study witchcraft with me but all of you as well. The only huge thing happening this year is my regular wedding on May 13th and then our Handfasting on November 28th. Giving me more time to devote to all the fingers of WOTC that I run completely on my own. Any donations to help with cost of keeping WOTC going would be greatly appreciated as the hours I put in per week is equivalent to a full-time job. Even reading more posts per day would help raise the small amount, around $100.00 USD, I receive from PayPal for the ads that appear on all the different posts. As you can tell I am doing this as a labor of love and wanting to bust the stereotypes history and mass media has given us all to endure. To help people realize that a witch could be their likeable, next-door neighbor, a kind and giving person. Instead of thinking we all do animal scarifies, curse and/or hex people, and as you know the stereotype goes on and on and on.

Besides all the daily posts which take me about five hours every day I will be publishing a mini magazine every month and get back to having either a Sabbath (on whatever day it falls on and includes a ritual for the southern and northern hemispheres) or Esbats (on a Saturday or Sunday whenever the date falls within 3 days of the date of the full or new Moon) open (coven) gatherings monthly, and also a monthly open chat on the 3rd Saturday of every month starting Saturday, February 19,2022 . If anyone knows of a reasonably priced chatroom website that I can set up a private chat room in, please let me know as soon as possible. I plan on us being able to gather on Wednesday, February 1, 2022, for the Imbolc/Lammas Sabbat. Time to be announced as soon as I figure out a good time for our sisters and brothers from Australia and Europe to be able to join us. I get confused sometimes with the 17 hours plus international date line for Australia time and 7 hours difference for Europe. I tell my fiancée it is no wonder I cannot keep straight what day it is with working with 6 different time zones and the international dateline every day…lol. Writing a new ritual for every Sabbat or Esbat takes me between 2 to 3 hours as I test how easy or hard it is to do with only having a typed page of instructions. What would think of me videotaping the ritual in advance and posting it a day or two before the gathering, so you have something else to follow for it? I should let you know I will be recording it via my cellphone because I have no other way to do it, so it will be a learning curve for me to do this. Adding even more time to my work schedule but that is fine if at least 10 people think it would help them to follow the ritual on the night of the gathering.

I will be restarting WOTC School of Witchcraft with courses starting on February 3rd and August 3rd. I will start the novice and adept courses twice a year and every lesson will have a specific due date. Of course, if there is an illness in your family or another emergency arises, I will work with you on extending your current lessons due date by 7 days. Always remember your health, well-being and family are more important than sticking to a due date for a lesson. Besides getting lessons in on time the other two most important things to do are to check in with me weekly, a simple “Hi” is all that you would need to email me, and to read 1 post 4 days a week including leaving a comment on it, so I know you read the post.

The novice course includes 18 lessons, all gatherings, and 1 on 1 help from me if needed. The novice course is to be completed within 1 year and 1 day which starts when you receive a reply from your first lesson. The cost for this course is $30.00 USD. The next novice course will begin on February 3, 2022.

The adept/intermediate course includes for the first year 10 written lessons, all gatherings, you will be responsible for writing and leading one Esbats and one Sabbaths gathering. You will also be the moderator for 4 open chats and 1 one 1 help from me. Your second year is a time we will explore the pagan/witchcraft/spiritual path that you want to walk. This course is 2 years and 1 day long and starts when your novice course time is through. I do accept students entering at this level of study after the person fills out a questionnaire so I can gage your level of knowledge. The cost for this course is $50.00 USD.

For more information about either course please email at ladybeltane@aol.com. Please put “School” in the subject line. I will be posting an outline for the lessons in each course by the evening of Sunday, January 12th.

To receive a copy of the new mini-magazine, Life in The Craft, go to the Daily Posts and look for ‘Free ‘Life in The Craft’ Monthly Mini-Magazine Coming Straight to Your Emails Inbox’, for all the information about it. I am figuring out this is going to add at least 5 more hours a week to my work for WOTC. I want to give a huge thank Kari for volunteering to edit Life in The Craft. She is a professional editor so I know the things I write for the mini magazine will come to you easier to read without all my oops in it.

Any questions or comments about anything in this post please put it in the Comments section below because someone else might be wondering about the same thing you are. Thank you!

Until we meet again soon blessed be dear Sisters, brothers, and guests.

Tuesday:  
The guardian of this day is Samael, and the ruling planet is Mars. This is a combustive combination.  Why? Well, because Mars is considered a planet (and a god) of aggression, war and conflict as well as red hot passion.  And Samael has a dicey reputation. His name in Hebrew means ‘blind to God’ and/or ‘poison of God’.  By some experts in angelology, Samael is thought to be the angel of death, and/or a dark angel.  However, the Judaic Kabbalah references Samael as the ‘severity of God’.  In this context Samael was commanded by his superiors to essentially do all the dirty work that the ‘nice’ and ‘pretty’ angels didn’t want to do. Affiliated with Tuesday, Samael and the planet Mars assert an energetic message that says: “This day is likely to bring conflict. But do not question the power of your influence over adversity. Assert your will, fight, refuse to let the poison of negativity overwhelm you.”
