Saturday’s Witchery

Saturday’s Witchery

Saturday is a day filled with opportunities to clean up and clear out. So if you are wondering why Hecate is assigned to this day, take another look at what she symbolizes and the magick that is associated with her. That should answer the question.

Hecate was the oldest form of the Greek Triple Goddess, as she presided over heaven, the underworld, and earth. Crossroads where three roads met were especially sacred to Hecate, earning her the title of Hekate of the Three Ways. It’s interesting to note that even after the worship of other goddesses waned, ancient people still worshiped Hecate as the Queen of the Underworld and the Guardian of the Three-Way Crossroad. It was also believed that if you left her an offering of food there, she would grant you her favors. As Hecate Trivia, her triple images were often displayed at these crossroads, where she was petitioned on the full moon for positive magick and on the dark of the moon for cursing and dark magick.

While this last bit of information sounds a little ominous, keep in mind that Hecate/Hekate was known by many titles and is a shapeshifter. Her appearance could and did change often. As a dark moon goddess, her faces are many. To some she may appear as a old crone, hunched over a smoking cauldron and draped in a midnight cape. To others she may appear as a dark beautiful, mysterious, and mature woman wearing a shimmering crown. To some she may be perceived as a maiden priestess. She was called the “most lovely one,” the Great Goddess of Nature, and the Queen of the World of Spirits. This dark goddess knows her way around the earth and the underworld. All the powers of nature, life, and death are at her command.

Let’s Talk Witch – Crossroads Magic

Let’s Talk Witch – Crossroads Magic

A place where two roads cross has always been a magical location. It is a useful place for leaving offerings, burying spells or candle stubs and is thought to be where the worlds meet; a place of spirits.

You can make your own crossroads if you aren’t near one and need it for your spell or laying tricks. You can draw with chalk or sprinkle an outline with powder or salt to make a circle with a cross inside. You can draw it on the ground or on your altar. This is commonly referred to as a ‘cross mark’. If you need to be a bit more discreet you can just mark dots where the lines would touch the edge of the outer circle and a centre spot, this is referred to as a ‘five spot’. This is also sometimes called a quincunx or a cosmogram.

The five spot is generally used for sealing and fixing spells in place. You place items at each of the five spots; what you put there depends on location and the type of spell. Items used might be graveyard dirt, sachet powders, salt or powdered minerals.

If you can access the floorboards in a room, this is much preferred. Then you can fix the trick by laying five bundles of ingredients, such as roots, personal items, herbs, stones etc, literally under the floorboards at the five spots. You could also use thick rugs or items of furniture within the house to hide the bundles under.

If you have fitted carpets on the floors you could use spiritual waters to mark the five spots, but any liquid is considered a temporary measure as it evaporates and will need to be renewed.

You can also fix a protection trick by using four spot points outside your property, one at each corner. This makes it easier for burying bundles of ingredients. The centre point can be more discreet as it will be inside the house and is quite often salt.

Candle spells often incorporate the five spot method. Sachet powders are used at the four outer points and items from the spell left in the centre while the candle spell burns.

Crossroads are an excellent place for crossroad rituals (or spells) and also a good place to dispose of used spell remnants. To dispose of an item at the crossroads, throw it over your left shoulder towards the middle of the crossroads and walk away, never look back.

Candle wax stubs, ashes and leftover sachet powders are also good items to dispose of at a crossroads, especially if the items have been used in jinxes or harmful tricks.

Brighid’s Crossroads Divination

Brighid’s Crossroads Divination

By , About.com

Imbolc is a time when the Wheel of the Year has reached a crossroads between light and dark. The earth is about to quicken, and yet no one knows exactly what lies ahead of us. There are twists and turns on the path to come, although where it leads is anyone’s guess.

Among her many aspects, Brighid is considered a goddess of the crossroads. She is said to be able to see where we’ve been, and where each road might take us, should we choose to follow it. A Brighid’s Cross unites the four elements, and creates paths which travel in the four directions. Because of this, Imbolc is an ideal time for divination. Not sure where your headed this year, or what choices lie before you? Let Brighid help guide you as you weave a crossroads of your own in her honor. As you create a Brighid’s Cross as part of this divination, ask her to inspire you, and guide you towards the right path in the coming months.

For this divination, you’ll want to find a place where you can be alone and undisturbed. If it’s warm enough, try to get outside, perhaps out in the woods where two paths intersect. Before you begin, read the instructions here on how to Make a Brighid’s Cross. Have all your supplies on hand prior to beginning your divination ritual.

Begin by closing your eyes, and thinking about where you’ve been in the past year, spiritually, emotionally, even physically. What things have you done that bring your regret? What things have brought you joy? Is there anything you wanted to do, but didn’t get a chance to? Picture yourself wandering along a path, out of the past and into the present. Let your mind roam freely, and visualize yourself approaching a crossroads. Perhaps it’s a place in a forest, where a pair of deer trails run together. Maybe it’s in the mountains, where streams intersect. Or maybe you picture yourself out in a wide open space, with roads connected in the middle of nowhere.

Regardless, see yourself at that crossroads. You are at the center, and branching out from where you stand are many paths. Each leads in a different direction. Each path will take you to something new. Begin creating your Make a Brighid’s Cross, and as you weave the straws together, think about what may lie in each direction. As you look out over your choices, thinking about which way to travel, Brighid herself is standing beside you. Continue weaving your cross, and watch her. She points out one of the roads.

When you’ve finished your cross, close your eyes once more, and meditate on the path which Brighid indicated for you. What lies in that direction? Is it something familiar and comforting? Something new and unknown? Focus on the cross you’ve made, and let this newly chosen path inspire you. Know that it will ultimately bring you to something good and positive and strong.

When you’ve finished, you may wish to make an offering to Brighid as a gesture of thanks for her guidance.
