“Waiting in the Shadows, Nocturnal Witchcraft”

Nocturnal Witchcraft…

What comes to mind when you hear that title? Errie, Black Magick that is summoned up from the darkest corners of the deepest black pits of the Universe… Where the souless undead roam and macebre spirits wander…

Yeah, this is not Nocturnal Witchcraft.

This type of practice is to perform Magickal Spells and/or Rituals during the hours of the Night. This doesnt automatically make Nocturnal Witchcraft an “EVIL” practice.

One of my first practices I started out with when first learning the Craft. Nocturnal Practices are performed by individuals that are drawen to the Night, the Moon, and Lunar Energies.

In my late teens after graduating highschool I often felt more comfortable and alive during hours of the Night when the world was most quiet. My fondest memories of when I was a “Night Owl” was around the time I would be heading into my bed. Although I loved the stillness and quietness of the Nightly World, when the Sun would start to peak over the horizsen, it was always so beautiful.

I remember sitting out in our yard during Dawn, watching the sun start to rise over the trees gazing in “aw” like wonder at the scenery in front of myself. Remembering the feelings “vampires” most alway would express about how the Sun was no longer a part of their lifes, this was not there world… At least anymore.

But appearantly this was not unusual behavior for me. Being that my SunSign in my Astrology Birthchart is Scorpio/Water, and Scorpios are best known to be Nocturnal Beings and they make the best Nocturnal Witches as well, or so Ive heard. As the moon moves across the sky, it passes through the various zodiac signs, primarily affecting our moods and reactions. Those who have a sun sign align to the water element (Scorpio, Piecese, Cancer) will feel this effect most strongly.

Nocturnal Witchcraft Practices:

Before I get into the practices I want to say that in no way do I speak for all Nocturnal Witches. These Practices are from my own expeiences and I hope you find them helpful and informative and that you too enjoy them as well.

I find that working with the Moon Phases is incorperated with Nocturnal Witchcraft. Each Moon Phase can help assist with different situations that goes on in our lifes.

Many witches choose to time their spells based on moon phase. Generally, spells for gain or increase are done during the waxing moon while spells for banishing or decrease are done during the waning moon.

Some witches also choose to cast their spells based on the zodiac sign through which the moon is traveling. One might choose to do a spell associated with lunar energy when the moon was in the zodiac sign ruled by the moon being Cancer.

Working with the Moon and Lunar Energies can help assist with
Cycles, emotions, secrets, divination, divine feminine, your feminine side, the subconscious, dreams and dream work, finding a path, hidden intentions. Not to shabby of a practice, huh?

“6 steps to Begin on your Magickal Witchy Path”

Free Website Visitors

If you are reading this then you might have been thinking about how to start your journey on how to become a Witch. In this post I explain the first 6 Steps to take when begining on your path to Magick! Let’s begin…

Step 1) Find out why you want to become a Witch?

Why do you want to become a Witch? What is it with Witchcraft that interest you? These answers might come right to you. If they do thats Great! But If they dont, not to worry.

I suggest to meditate on these questions. It might be days before you discover the answers to why you want to become a Witch and that is completely fine. The more you meditate on these questions the better idea you will have of why you want to journey down this Magickal Path.

When I say “meditate” you might be thinking to yourself that you are not quite sure on how to do this. What I mean is find a quite place where you dont have to worry about being disturbed, where there are few to no noises as possiable.

Find somewhere comfortable in this space and just sit there thinking on these questions. You might find it helpful to have a notepad and writing utinsel handy to write down anything that comes to you.

For myself I enjoy having a warm cup of tea, I find it helps to relax and calm my body and mind. Also closing my eyes helps when I am reaching deep within myself for answers.

Step 2) What do you expect to gain from learning the Craft?

What are you hoping to achieve from Witchcraft? If you are hoping to learn how to fly on a broomstick or shoot lightning out of your finger tips than most likely you will be disappointade.

But if you are wanting to learn how to become a more balanced person, connect with nature, learn to communicate with spirits and your past Ancestors and learn how to open your own Intuition than this path might be for you.

Step 3)  Learn the Basics

After learning why you want to become a Witch and what it is you expect to gain from the Craft next is to learn the Basics of the Craft. What Witchcraft tradition/s are you most drawn to? If you dont know or are not quite sure here is a link profided by Bev. G on Exemplore of “60 Witchcraft Tradition” that you can look over and than decide which one best suites you.

If you like more than one tradition dont stress over it. The beauty of Witchcraft is that you do not have to strickly stick to one practice. You can draw from different practices that you find best fits you. I do this myself in my own practice. Witches that draw from different traditions are known as Eclectic Witches.

Step 4)  PRACTICE!

This step is very important. You must practice your craft in order to grow and become better at it. We all know that saying “Practice makes Perfect”, this saying nails it right on the head. Witchcraft is a practice. You will not master it over night and thats alright. I have been practicing Witchcraft for 14 years now and even though I know more than I use to I have still yet to master any of my practices.

More than likely any practice you decide to learn from will not be mastered because there is so much to learn from Witchcraft and it is a very ancient practice. Dont let that discourage you. Witchcraft isnt about mastering a practice but about learning life experiences from the practices you choose to take part in.

Step 5) Connect with Nature

How you can intertwine Witchcraft into your every day life. One way you can live a witchy everyday life is to connect with Nature.

For me when I feel like I am lacking Magick in my life or I just need a boost. I really enjoy going for a hike in the woods. If you dont have woods where you live going for a hike in nature period should get you feeling more connect to all the magick that surrounds you.

What elements of Nature do you feel most connected to? Maybe taking a stroll around a body of water helps you feel more connected, or spending time near a camp/bon fire or even visiting a windy hill top. Connecting with Nature can be a refreshing Magickal experience.

Step 6)  Have Fun with it

The most imporant thing to remember is to have fun with your practices. Just enjoy your experiences. You might come across someone that feels like you are not persuing your practices correctly and that might be true to them but if the way you perform your practices feels right to you just keep at it. You are not doing this for them or anyone else so I would advise just hearing them out and simply explaining to them that that might be how they feel but this is how you like to perform you own practice. If they still continue to say your wrong try to change the topic and leave it be.

This has been “6 steps to begin on your Magickal Witchy Path”. I hope you found it helpful and informative.

“Candle Magick, An Ancient Practice”

Free Instagram Followers & Likes

Candle Magick has been around since the dawn of time, traced as far back as the Paleolithic era. It is a very powerful form of sympathetic magic. Sympathetic Magick is primitive or magical ritual using objects or actions resembling or symbolically associated with the event or person over which influence is sought

Sound AMAZING? You bet it does!

Candle Magick has been a calling for me ever since I discovered Witchcraft in 2005. One of the first practices I learned on my Witchy Spiritual Journey.

I really enjoy and love working with candles to assist me in casting my spells out to the Universe. So much I created this post so others can learn themself.

Why?

Because I believe it is a practice anyone and everyone would enjoy knowing and learn more about and you dont have to be a geniues to learn Candle Magick! Its EASY to pick up on and it does not require expensive or unusual items in order to CAST! Sweet!

Before I continue on I do want to mention any unused/ unburned candle will do to start casting with Candle Magick, also you can choose to use different types of colored candles that represent certain meanings when casting, this is popular in Candle Magick BUT! ANY COLOR CANDLE WILL WORK FINE FOR ANY SITUATION YOU MIGHT HAVE. I mention using a candle thats never been lit for previous spells espescially because it could create complications between the different spells. When you choose a candle for spell work you personalize that candle specifically for THAT SPELL.

Ill explain more below.

So even though its not a HUGE deal using certain colored candles for certain situations, I like to. Usually when my Witchy candle supply is scarce is when I will use what I have for the situation at hand, not worrying about candle color.

After saying all that lets find out what candle color represent WHAT??

Color Candle Meanings:

  1. White candles– Destruction of negative energy, peace, truth and purity
  2. Purple candles– Spiritual awareness, wisdom, tranquility
  3. Lavender Candles– Intuition, Paranormal, Peace, Healing
  4. Blue and Deep Blue Candles– Meditation, Healing, Forgiveness, Inspiration, Fidelity, Happiness, and opening lines of Communication.
  5. Green Candles– Money, Fertility, Luck, Abundance, Health (not to be used when diagnosed with Cancer), Success
  6. Rose and Pink Colored Candles– Positive self love, friendship, harmony, joy
  7. Yellow Candles– Realizing and manifesting thoughts, confidence, bringing plans into action, creativity, intelligence, mental clarity, clairvoyance.
  8. Orange Candles– Joy, energy, education, strength attraction, stimulation
  9. Red or Deep red Candles– Passion, energy, love, lust, relationships, sex, vitality, courage.
  10. Black Candles– Protection, absorption and destruction of negative energy and also repelling negative energy from others
  11. Silver candle– Goddess or feminine energy, remove negativity, psychic development
  12. Gold candle– Male energy, Solar energy, fortune, spiritual attainment,

Why does Candle Color meanings mean somthing to me and others??

You might not be aware of this and thats defenitaly ok but different colors have different frequencies which have different effects on the Human Psyche.

Right?!

I love this about colors I even choose what I wear for the day depending on the effect my psyche will have based on the colors of my outfit.

After discussing about using never been lit candles and why colors can matter lets discuss the steps to creating your personal witchy candle!

Steps (in order) to preping your Spell Candle before Casting:

  • Cleanse your candle to remove negative or psychic energies, you can do this by holding your candle over incense smoke or sage smoke, leave candle in moon light all night, or bury in salt.
  • Anoint your candle with oil to imprint your intentions onto your candle, doing this helps your spell to be more powerful and effective. To Anoint decide if your wanting to Attract somthing into your life or Rid of something. To attract start at TOP of candle and rub down to BOTTOM of candle. Do the oppisite to rid. While rubbing candle focus on your goal and visualize what it is you wish to accomplish
  • Carve your name, birthday or event date, etc on to your candle. This sends intention to the universe
  • Lastly roll and/or sprinkle herbs all over your candle to get extra charge towards your spell.

After doing all that…

VOILA! Your candle is now ready for your spell to be casted!

“Scrying, more than Crystal Gazing”

Free Twitter Followers

Scrying. What is it? Is it what it sounds like? Staring out at the sky? Well not necessarily.

Scrying also known as Hydromancy, Crystal Gazing, and Oculomancy is a Esoteric Practice.

Esoteric Practices are a special, unusual, or rare practice that many people dont take part in.

More so Scrying is a type of DIVINATION TECHNIQUE. Divination is
the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means.

So why would someone want to learn how to scry??

Have you ever wondered about future events or had a question you really wanted an answer to now rather then later? Well Scrying or other divination techniques can help the indivisual to find out the answers to their questions at hand. Scrying helps to get in touch with the unconscious mind. If you are struggling to find direction, the meaning or purpose in life Scrying could help you to discover your inner needs.

To be honest Scrying is a wonderful Divination Technique but it is not one that I have really practiced myself. A friend of mine admitted to having interest in this practice and asked if I would create a post on it so they could learn more about it. Well as someone that blogs on these types of topics there was no way I could turn them away by saying no.

Even though I havent practiced Scrying myself doesnt mean I dont use other types of Divination Practices.

Types of Divination I have used and still use today:

Tarot card readings:

Tarot divination is a form of cartomancy (card divination) which uses special Tarot cards. Tarot cards are similar to playing cards in that they have four suits (Wands, Cups, Swords, and Coins) plus Court Cards (Kings, Queens, Knights, and Pages). Unlike playing cards, Tarot cards have 22 extra cards including Death, The Devil, and The Lovers.

Astrology:

Astrology is divination using the movement of the planets and stars. Of all methods and forms of fortune-telling, Astrology is the most famous and probably the most widely practiced.

Automatic Writing:

Automatic Writing is a straightforward type of divination. All you have to do is grab a pen and paper, clear your mind, then let the words flow out of you. Some practitioners claim that during Automatic Writing, they channel messages from spirits, their true selves, and even otherworldly beings.

Palmistry:

Palmistry is divination by reading someone’s hand. For as long as there has been recorded history, humans have attached spiritual significance to their hands.

Dream:

Because dreaming is natural, dream interpretation is possibly one of the most ancient methods of divination. It is only human nature to have a dream and then wonder what the significance is behind it. Assigning spiritual significance to dreams has been practiced throughout history.

Pendulum:

One of the great things about a pendulum reading is that a pendulum can give you a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer to any questions you might have.

So after practicing these amazing Divination Techniques throughout my Spiritual Journey with Witchcraft how could I turn down learning another awesome practice? The answer is I couldnt.

Since I couldnt turn down the request lets learn more about this great Divination Technique!

How is Scrying performed?

Scrying is performed using reflective surfaces like Mirrors, Water, or Crystal ball.

Who doesnt love working with shinny materials?

Scrying Exercise for Beginners:

Find a reflective service traditionally a Mirror, bowl of Water, or a strip of shinny Metal.

Prepare your space. Go to a quiet space with no distractions.

Set your scrying tool on a stable, flat service. Sit down in front of it, close your eyes and start to calm your mind. Let go of any stressful or confusing thoughts.

Form a purpose. Concentrate on the purpose or topic for which you want to perform a scrying. Think about your topic for a few minutes.

Open your eyes.

Look at your scrying tool and imagine that your physical eyes are sharing a beam of light with the reflective service.

What did you see??

Some people see physical manifestations, others see symbols. If you didnt see anything not to worry. This is not unusual. Try again the next day. Keeping at it and practice is key. With everything practice is necessary. After practicing a bit you should be able to start picking up on imagies, symbols and maybe even manifestations as well!

This has been my post on Scrying. I hope you enjoyed the read and enjoy practicing Scrying yourself and who knows maybe the other divination techniques I mentioned also caught your eye. Remember to keep at it. Practice makes perfect and HAVE FUN WITH IT!

If you have any questions leave me a message in the comments below. I’d love to hear back from you. Let me know how Scrying is coming along for you!

Come back every Wednesday and Sundays for NEW POST!

Until then Blessed Be!

“Learn to Enchant, The Enchanter/Enchantress”

Free Retweets

Learn how to transform everyday objects with your craft, charging them with your personal magick turning normal, average items into useful magickal tools!

How to Enchant for Beginners:

First of all What is an Enchantment??? Let dive in and find out!

An Enchantment is a simple spell or spells that are casted onto items known as Charms, Enchantments depend on the Witches energy. Enchantments are practical spells that have the personal touch of the Witch.

What all does one need to Enchant an item?

The greatness about Enchanting is that you dont need EXPENSIVE or HARD TO FIND TOOLS in order to Enchant! Talk about AWESOME!! I am all about affordable and everyday Witchy Practices.

3 things that are NEEDED to enchant an item:

  • Will (must be clear)
  • Focus (the stronger the better)
  • Energy (energy should be calm and collected)

Anything else that can be used for Enchanting is completely OPTIONAL.

Why would you choose to use other tools while Enchanting?? Hmm…

Reasons for using tools while Enchanting. The reason you might use tools while enchanting is because the tools help symbolize your WILL, help your FOCUS, or better your current ENERGY.

When Enchanting:

Consecrate the item you have decided to Enchant first. Why is this important? One, it purifies the item before it is used to interact with the Divine. Secondly, it removes any negative energies from the tool. Also clairify what it is you want to achieve with the Enchanted Charm.

If you feel the energy is getting weaker with your Enchanted item you can always re-enchant the item anytime. The only time you would not want to re-enchant an item is if it get damaged, torn, ruined.

Ways to Enchant:

  1. Hold item in your hands and VISULIZE it filling with the appropriate energy. OR
  2. Hold the item in your hands and SPEAK your intent aloud.

You can also use Crystals and/or Herbs with corresponding intent to assist you with Enchanting

Working with The MOON PHASES while Enchanting:

This next step is TOTALLY OPTIONAL. If you are interested with working with the moon to add some extra OMMPH! to your Enchantments check this next step out.

The Moon is one of the most POWERFUL forces around. The Moon controls the ocean tides, effects menstrual cycles, our moods, and even our Magick!

Not all Witches work with the Moon and that is completely fine. But for Witches that do believe that the Moon lends Lunar Energy boost to their Magick.

Talk about a POWER BOOST!

You might be asking, “When do you work with certain Moon Phases?” Not to worry I am fixing to explain it. Come with me as we explore the Lunar Phases! SWEET!

Dark Moon: Best time to destroy/ banish VERY NEGATIVE things such as addictions or serious diseases. Also best time to soul search or use divination.

Waxing Cresent: Best time to build on things or to bring things into your life.

First Quarter: Moon Energy most conductive to attraction. Best time to draw things outside of yourself to you.

Waxing Gibbous: Best time to use Magick to finish/ complete a project.

Full Moon: Most POWERFUL ENERGY. All-purpose Magick, attract or banish at this phase.

Waning Moon: Cast Magic to get rid of anything that no longer serves you.

Last Quarter moon: Cast to rid obstacles in your life that are getting in your way.

Waning Cresent: Clear your life of any stress, strife, or chaos, etc.

I hope you enjoyed and found my post helpful and informative on how to enchant items and enchanting while working with the Moon Phases. If you have any question shoot me a comment. Id love to hear back from you.

Until then Bless it be.

Tea.
