The WOTC Spell of the Day for March 22 - A Spell to Strengthen Your Psychic Shield

March 22nd, 2017

Old-Book-of-Shadows.jpg

Welcome to this episode of Spell of the Day for March 22nd. Today's spell is a Spell to Strengthen Your Psychic Shield. Whether you are just starting out in the world of the Craft or a seasoned practitioner, you know how important it is to always shield yourself, your home, your property and basically anything you care about. Shielding offers you protection from the unknown and in the world of magick, you never know what is lurking around the corner.

 

This is a very simple spell, it can be casted by the newcomer to the Craft that feels somewhat threatened or just wants protection in the new world they are entering. Either way, we all need quick and simple shielding spells and this is definitely that and I should add a good one also.

Spell of the Day for Friday, March 17th - A Solitary Ostara Rite with Lore by Scott Cunningham (Part 1)

March 17th, 2017

green-goddess-eva-thomas.jpg

A Solitary Ostara Rite with Lore

A traditional Vernal Equinox pastime: go to a field and randomly collect wildflowers.* Or, buy some from a florist, taking one or two of those that appeal to you. Then bring them home and divine their magical meanings by the use of books, your own intuition, a pendulum dulum or by other means. The flowers you've chosen reveal your inner thoughts and emotions.

 

It is important at this time of renewed life to plan a walk (or a ride) through gardens, a park, woodlands, forest and other green places. This is not simply exercise, and you should be on no other mission. It isn't even just an appreciation of nature. Make your walk celebratory, a ritual for nature itself.

 

A Sample of just a little of the Ostara Lore that will be found in this episode. Also a very, simple but elegant Ostara ritual to feel our Mother Earth awakening within our very fingertips.

 

Part 2 of this Spell of the Day will include how to do the Circle of Stones and also the Blessing Chant that is included in this ritual. We hope you enjoy this very special ritual and lore by one of the day's most prominent Pagan authors.

This concludes our special presentation on the Elemental Witches in particular the Fire Witch. Oh, don't worry, we haven't forgotten the Air Witch, she will conclude our series next week. But back to this week, Fire magick is dramatic, entrancing and magnificent. Fire Witches have a distinct preference for the more challenging magickal tasks and full-fledged ritual. However, as you journey along your magickal path you will find there are more simplier and practical ways of doing fire magick, for instance:

Candle Magick and Divining their Flames

Vinegars (yes, you heard me right). This includes the recipes for Four Thieves Vinegars and a Healing Vinegar.

Magickal Bonfires

Metal Magick

Prisms

Magickal Lamps

Correspondences for Fire

Fire Gods & Goddesses

Fire Herbs & Crystals

 

As you can see this is an episode loaded with information......

We would like to welcome you to our third installment of our special series on "The Elemental Witches." Today, we will be discussing the Fire Witch. The path of the Fire Witch is not for the faint of heart. She is strong and courageous and rarely takes "no" for an answer. She loves life, her life is beautiful and poetic but has an underlying current of tragedy. The Fire Witch is one of the most complicated witches in the group of Elementals.

Come, sit for a spell and see what we are talking about.....
