What A Glorious & Beautiful Saturday Morn’ The Goddess Has Blessed Us With! Good Morning Brothers & Sisters of The Craft!

June 24, 2017 @ 3:21 pm

                           Sunrise_Tree-600x421.jpg

Good Saturday Morning to all our Brothers & Sisters of the Craft and to those who are visiting! What a great day to be alive, hmm, that's a song isn't it, lol! It seems like it has been a long time since we have been here and I apologize for that. I don't won't to bore you to tears so I won't tell you about the week we have had. I wrote a book about it on The WOTC if you are curious. Now let's get this party started......

 

Amazing Grace

 

How sweet the Earth,
That bore a Witch like me.
I once was burned,
Now I survive.
Was Hanged but now I sing.

 

‘Twas Grace, That Drew
Down the Moon,
and Grace that Raised
the Seas,

 

The Magick in,
The people’s Will
Will Set our Mother Free.

 

We Face The East,
and breathe the winds,
That move across the Earth,
From gentle breeze to hurricane,
our breath will bring forth change.

 

Turn Towards the South,
and Feel the Fire,
That burns in you and me,
The Spirit’s flame shall rise again,
and Burn Eternally.

 

We Greet the West
Our Souls awash,
In Tides of Primal Birth,
Our Pain and blood, Our Tears and love
Shall cleanse and heal the Earth.

 

Reach in to North,
and Know your roots,
Down Deep ancestral Caves.
We find the Wisdom of the Crone,
of Circles we are made.

 

Amazing Grace
How Sweet the Earth
That bore Witches like We.
We once were burned
Now we survive
were hanged and now we sing.

 

Goddess bless,
So mote it be
Our Magick Spirals on,
Merry meet and Merry Part
and Merry meet Again.

Good Afternoon, It’s Monday, June 19th, Ready for some Astronomy for your day?

June 19, 2017 @ 7:15 pm

                           roses.jpg

Good afternoon to all our brothers & sisters of the Craft! I apologize for us not being around but.....we are operating three different site, plus this one, one store and trying to get another store up and running. So you might say, we've been a tadbit busy, just a tadbit. But we are trying something new here. We are going to give the astronomy as usual and then a new section called, "The Witches Guide To...(Whatever day it might be). Our main horoscope site went down and we had to revert back to our old site. The old horoscope site is a wonderful site but the horoscopes are a mile long and would take forever to read. So the horoscopes are posted on The WOTC. You can read them there till our main site comes back up. Now that you know what is going on, let's get this party started......

 

Summer Solstice

 

Summer brings the Earth's orbit
much closer to the sun.
On the longest day of the year,
let us praise what is above.

 

In ancient days, the sun was a god,
known by many names.
All would honor their dependence
upon that fiery blaze.

 

So join me now, as in days of old
on this summer day,
brothers and sisters of the grove,
let us give our thanks.

 

Gather branches of the fallen oak
to build a roaring fire.
Let us dance and sing around it,
while Sun and fire fuel desire.

 

Gather lavender and make a wish
then throw it in the flames,
thinking kindly of our fellow man
without naming any names.

 

Drink the honeysuckle Sun warmed tea
mixed with chamomile from the meadows,
make our crowns and chains of daisy
adorned with lily, dandelion and rose.

 

Litha, Summer Solstice,
It's a midsummer dream,
where we dance with the goddess
and the man of green.

 

As the days begin to shorten from here,
and the cold starts to creep like ivy
my spiritual fire's as hot as the sun,
and I'll keep it burning deep inside me.

All Poetry

Good Thursday Morning To All Our Dear, Precious Family & Friends! Ready to Get this Day Started, Then Let’s Go….

June 15, 2017 @ 3:33 pm

                               roses.jpg

Good Thursday Morning, my sweets! I must apologize for us not being with you yesterday. We had a pet emergency or should I say a "familiar" emergency. I believe everyone knows how I feel about my familiars, so it was up and off to the doc we went. Nothing major, just something that had been bothering me and I actually found a vet who knew what he was talking about. So we paid him a visit and it is nothing majorly wrong with my pup, so that was wonderful news to hear. Around here most of the vets deal with horses and cows, you bring a dog in they look at you like, "what do you think I am suppose to do?" Yeah, right! Anyway, we are back today and let's get this show on the road.....

 

Will You Be Of Wicca

 

Will you be of Wicca, tonight?
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Tyme.
Then come with me to the Circle of Light.
Bend the Will; the Wish you shall find.

 

Take up these herbs and brew up a tea..
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Tyme.
And drink it all down; the gods you shall see.
Bend the Will; the Wish you shall find.

 

Take up the glass, and look at your face.
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Tyme.
Go into yourself and find a new place.
Bend the Will; the Wish you shall find.

 

Go to the Woods, and find an Oak tree.
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Tyme.
And cling to it tight, and strong you shall be.
Bend the Will; the Wish you shall find.

 

Go to the Mountains and call to the Wind.
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Tyme.
And fly through the Air with the Thoughts that you send.
Bend the Will; the Wish you shall find.

 

Fly to the Sun, and touch its bright Flame.
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Tyme.
Open your Mind; now choose a new Name.
Bend the Will; the Wish you shall find.

 

Go to the Sea, and call to the Moon.
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Tyme.
Raise up your arms, then sing out Her tune.
Bend the Will; the Wish you shall find.

 

Now join your hands with Those who surround.
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Tyme.
Now share the Power that we send around.
Bend the Will; the Wish you shall find.

 

We shall part, but meet again soon.
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Tyme.
To dance, and sing, and Call Down the Moon.
Bend the Will, the Wish you shall find.

Good Monday Morning to all our dear family & friends! How Y’all Doing This Morning? Ready to get this show on the road……

June 12, 2017 @ 3:00 pm

                            sunrise-sunset-wallpaper-1366x768.jpg

Good Monday Morning to one and all! Can you believe it is Monday already? Gee, I think they need to extend the weekends or something, lol! Not enough hours in the weekends anymore. Let's get this show on the road before it becomes another day on us, what'cha say.....

 

The Goddess is Alive

 

Moon shines down upon a sea of Light,
Shifting sands lay singing in the Heart of the Night.
I looked upon a scene that gripped me to the core,
White-clad maidens below were dancing on the shore.

 

Sweet sounds slipped from moon-lit throats,
Wind whipped hair abound,
Lit by the light within and without,
The Women circled 'round.

 

As I stood, water engulfed my feet,
My body swayed to your Heavenly Heart beat.
Wind and wave and fire light,
Paled in my mind Earthly delight.

 

Time slipped by me as you held your embrace,
And windblown spray covered my face.
Protected deep within your Womb,
I could feel the tender pain of Life's bloom.

 

Candles flared high as the Dance progressed,
Deep inside with a healing touch you blessed.
All around, wind, wave and fire shouted of your life,
Your light speared deep within, soothing my strife.

 

Divine Mother, Goddess of Light,
To you I come seeking protection from the night.
Come home to shelter within your arm,
Surrounded by Love, hidden from harm.

 

Holy Mother, Queen of Heaven and Earth,
From you we all trace our Birth.
Heavenly Goddess, light from above,
Shine down upon us, we pray for your Love.

Good Sunday Morning To All Our Dear Family & Friends! We Hope You Have A Very Wonderful & Relaxing Sunday!

June 11, 2017 @ 3:01 pm

                             

Good Sunday morning to all our dear family & friends! How's it going so far? We hope great. Grab that cup of coffee, sit back, relax and spend some time with us today....

 

Mother, Maiden, Crone

 

Mother Maiden, Crone
I am just a Witch alone,
honoring your many phases
as my own....
Changes come and go,
tides rise and flow
as your light continues to grow,
peeking through the window as I sleep,
my dreams you safely keep,
Goddess of the Moon,
your magick fills my room,
with blessings of the womb,
moonbeams dance upon these walls,
like golden threads, spun on a loom,
Stars circle round,
like a silvery crown,
as I draw your energy down..
Many Blessings you continuously bestow
with your magickal glow,
as above... so below....
Mother, Maiden, Crone
I am just a Witch Alone....

Top of the Morning To Ya! Ah, Can You Believe it is Friday Already? Let’s Get This Show Started Before It Turns Saturday On Us, lol!

June 9, 2017 @ 4:38 pm

                             hubble.jpg

It's Friday, the day to take off and just get away from it all. What a better way to start the day with this beautiful poem. Sit back, listen and let your mind float away in the..... 

 

Pagan's Playground

 

I leave my cares and world behind
And drift away with a wandering mind
To a place where dreams come true
Where the grass is green and the sky is blue

 

Then a gentle breeze brushes my face
As I wander through this gentle place
Where birds and bees sing in the trees
And the grass bends with a gentle breeze

 

A song is sung but in natures way
One that is heard when children play
One that is carried forth for all to hear
But heard by those who know no fear

 

It plays both in day and also at night
You don't use your ears or need a light
Close your eyes for it is all around
Open your heart and it will be found

 

Once it is heard it won't just go away
It won't leave you alone not for a day
Its source can't be found but still you will look
Beneath every rock and the babbling brook

 

Try as you might and look where you can
And when you are finished go look again
For this magickal sound and wondrous place
Is often hidden right in front of our face

 

But though it is so simple often it's missed
And I have heard people say it doesn't exist
Still there are others who smile and know
Of the song that is sung and where they should go

 

They know this world is created with only a thought
Not with something borrowed or something bought
So in their mind's eye they create it with will
What wonders await us just over the hill

Merry Meet & Welcome One & All To Our Humble Podcast, Shall We Get Our Journey Started for Wednesday, June 7

June 7, 2017 @ 4:16 pm

                       Untitled.jpg

Ah, what a glorious morning to be alive! The weather is cool, the windows opens, the crisp fresh air of Spring gently blowing in. On day's like today, you feel the Goddess' presence all around you. Feel the magick in the love and magick our Divine Mother bless us with each day. Let's get the day started, what'cha say?

 

 

Witch's Charge

 

Hear now the words of the witches,
The secrets we hid in the night,
When dark was our destiny's pathway,
That now we bring forth into the light.

 

Mysterious Water and Fire,
The Earth and the far-reaching Air,
By hidden quintessence we know them,
And will keep silent and dare.
The birth and rebirth of all nature,
The passing of winter and spring,
We share with the life universal,
Rejoice in the magcial ring.

 

Four times in the year the Great Sabbat
Returns, and the witches are seen
At Lammas and Candlemas dancing,
On May Eve and old Hallowe'en.
And when day time and night time are equal,
When sun is at greatest and least,
The four lesser Sabbats are summoned,
Again witches gather in feast.

 

Thirteen silver moons in a year are,
Thirteen is the coven's array.
Thirteen times at Esbat make merry,
For each golden year and a day.

 

The power was passed down the ages,
Each time between woman and man,
Each century unto the other,
Ere time and ages began.
When drawn is the magical circle,
By sword or athame of power,
It's compass between the two worlds lies
In the land of shades that hour.
This world has no right to know it,
And the world beyond will tell naught.
The oldest of gods are invoked there,
The Great Work of Magic is wrought.

 

For two are the mystical pillars,
That stand at the gate of the shrine,
And two are the power of nature,
The forms and the forces of the divine.
The dark and the light in succession,
The opposites each unto each,
Shown forth as a God and a Goddess:
This did our ancestors teach.

 

By night he's the wild wind's rider,
The Horned One, the Lord of the Shades.
By day he's the King of the Woodland,
The dweller in green forest glades.

 

The bright silver lady of midnight,
The crone who weaves spells in the dark.
She is youthful or old as she pleases,
She sails the torn clouds in her barque,

 

The master and mistress of magic,
They dwell in the deeps of the mind,
Immortal and ever renewing,
With power to free or to bind.

 

So drink the good wine to the Old Gods,
And dance and make love in their praise,
Till the Summerland shall receive us
In peace at the end of our days.
And Do What Thou Wilt
Shall be the challenge,
So be it in love that harms none,
For this is the only commandment,
By magic of old, be it done!

 

Eight words the Witches Creed fulfull:
It if Harms None, Do What Thou Will

Witches' Chant

 

Darksome night and shining Moon,
Hearken to the Witches' rune,
East then South, West then North,
Here come I to call Thee forth.

 

By all the powers of land and sea,
Be obedient unto me.
Wand and Pentacle and Sword,
Hearken ye unto my word.

 

Cords and Censer, Scourge and Knife,
Waken all ye into life.
Powers of the Witches' Blade,
Come ye as the charge is made.

 

Queen of Heaven, Queen of Hell,
Send your aid unto the spell.
Horned Humter of the night,
Work my will by magick rite.

 

By all the powers of land and sea,
As I do say, "So mote it be."
By all the might of Moon and Sun,
As I do will, it shall be done.

Good Morning & Welcome To The WOTC Magickal, Mystical Hour of Power for Monday, June 5th

June 5, 2017 @ 5:01 pm

                        witch-brewing.jpg                           

Good Morning & Welcome to the Witches of the Craft's podcast for Monday, June 5. We would also like to welcome you to the world of Witches. A world filled with wonder, mysticm, and of course, magick. So come with us and journey into the future, see what the day holds for you, better yet the week, will you be prosperous in love or money. Let's see as we peer into the future.....  

 

       

Charge of the God

 

I am the radiant King of the Heavens,
flooding the Earth with warmth
and encouraging the hidden seed of creation
to burst forth into manifestation.
I light my shining spear
to light the lives of all beings and
daily pour forth my gold upon the Earth,
putting to flight the powers of darkness.

 

 

I am the master of the beasts wild and free.
I run with the swift stag and
soar as a sacred falcon against the shimmering sky.
The ancient woods and wild places emanate my powers,
and the birds of the air sing my sanctity.

 

 

I am also the last harvest, offering up grain and fruits
beneath the sickle of time so all may be nourished.
For without planting there can be no harvest; without winter, no spring.

 

 

Worship me as the thousand-named Sun of creation,
the spirit of the horned stag in the wild, the running wolf,
the endless harvest.
See in the yearly cycle of festivals my birth, death, and rebirth and know that such is the
destiny of all creation.

 

 

I am the spark of life, the radiant Sun,
the giver of peace and rest,
and I send my rays of blessings to warm the
hearts and strengthen the minds of all
