Magical Yule Cards

Magical yule cards

Do you send out magical Yule cards to all your friends and family every year?

Then perhaps this magical craft idea will interest you.

Make handmade Yule cards. Use your imagination. Once they are all made, separate the cards into categories

Friends and family who need healing
Friends and family who need a financial boost
Friends and family who need protection
General Love

Match the four categories with your favourite incense, oils, and candle colour. Place the four piles of cards on your altar (stamped and ready to go), and say:

“Holy Mother (or divinity of your choice) I can upon thee. In your grace, please hear my petition of (love, success, protection, or healing) for those individuals who addresses lie here.”

Run the incense slowly over each pile, and say:

“In the name of (divinity) I cleanse and consecrate these cards. May they be vehicles of positive magic, and blessed by the Gods?”

Take your time with the incense so that the scent will permeate the paper. Light the candle colour of your choice and say the following verse seven times:

“Darkness to light
my wishes take flight
The Witch
The power
The flame.”

As you feel the energy building over the altar. Then, one pile at a time, focus on a pile saying the name of the category seven times. For example, repeating the word “love”. Allow your fingers to tingle your palms may grow warm. That’s fine. When you have finished with all four piles, hold your hands once again over the altar and say:

“Season’s Greetings
With Love in my heart
my gift to you
Is a magical art.
So mote it be.”

Seal the spell by drawing an equal armed cross (or pentacle, if it is your preferred power symbol) over the altar with your finger in the air. Thank Spirit in your own way. Then mail the cards.

Spell To Stop Harm Coming & Luck Jar

Spell To Stop Harm Coming & Luck Jar yet another few gems for you

Spell To Stop Harm

You need:

1 brown or maroon candle
2 blue candles
2 white candles
1 black candle
athame (or other ritual knife)
sage for smudging (optional)
Your brown or maroon candle should be towards the back of the altar, but close to the middle.
Your black candle should be immediately in front of it (in the center of the altar), your blue candles on the sides of the black candle (one on each side next to it, but about 3 to 6 inches spread apart), and your white candles should be directly in front of your blue candles (also about 3 to 6 inches in front of them). So you have your basic star pattern.

Cast your circle. Light the candles

Now you have cast the circle, place the blade of your athame into the fire of the black candle and chant:

“Hail to the gods and the goddesses of the earth, Please help stop physical harm from coming to (name).
I Thank thee.”

Do this to the black, then the maroon or brown, then the left blue, left white, right white, then right blue.
THEN, hold your athame straight up and say it again. As if you were pointing at the sky.

Now, do the whole chant again just like before, but replace “physical with emotional, then with mental, and so on…
Then point your tool in front of you, say “blessed be”, point to the left, behind you (turn around), and to the right, then point it up.
You are done.

Cerridwens Cauldron

Cerridwens cauldron

Cerridwens Cauldron is very interesting. Cerridwen is the Welsh crone, “the bent white one.”

Her name shows she’s amoon-goddess. This Crone keeps the cauldron of inspiration and transformation.

What exactly is this cauldron? In Celtic myths, several cauldrons appear, as John and Caitlin Matthews note in Encyclopaedia of Celtic Wisdom. These include the Dagda’s food-cauldron that leaves no one unsatisfied, Diwrnach’s cauldron that will not serve cowards, Cerridwen’s cauldron of knowledge and inspiration and Bran’s cauldron from which warriors are reborn – a cauldron that in Greek myth belongs to Medea, a priestess of Hecate.

The cauldron thus combines many levels:

physical sustenance, an emotional test, intellectual knowledge and spiritual rebirth. Into the cauldron the Crone throws many things, to mix and stew and come out changed. As the Matthews note, the Celts, from a land of bogs, their houses built in some places on stilts, might well have had a creation myth in which they sprang from a cauldron.

This cauldron is a traditional accoutrement of crones, and in it brews knowledge and rebirth. Meditation on rebirth is appropriate at the last harvest, the beginning of winter. At the time of death we most fervently hope to be reborn.

Cerridwen, the Great Sow, is also the White Lady, ruling death as well as inspiration. It makes sense too that she is a mistress of rebirth; through her, Gwion Bach becomes Taliesen.

Cerridwen has three children, including the dark and ugly boy Afagddu.

Worried Afagddu can’t make his way on looks; she sets a cauldron of knowledge to brew for him for a year and a day and gets young Gwion Bach to guard it.

But toward the end of the year, three drops spurt out and fall on Gwion’s finger, burning him, and he sticks it in his mouth. Those three drops hold all the brew’s potency; the rest is poison. As soon as he sucks his finger Gwion foresees all and runs away.

Cerridwen sees what’s happened and gives chase. Gwion changes to a hare Cerridwen to a greyhound; he to a fish in the river, she to an otter-bitch.
He turns to a bird, and she to a hawk stooping above him. Seeing a pile of winnowed wheat, he transforms to a grain in the heap, but she becomes a black hen and swallows him. Each change to a pair of totem animals in this cycle represents a season. Nine months after Cerridwen swallows Gwion, she bears him as a child.

He’s so beautiful she can’t kill him, so she sends him in a leather bag out to sea. The heretofore luckless Elphin catches the bag in a weir while seeking salmon. Disappointed, he takes the child home with him, naming the boy Taliesen (radiant brow). On the ride, Taliesen consoles him with verse, describing his provenance and Cerridwen, “a smiling black old hag, when irritated/Dreadful her claim when pursued,” as R.J. Stewart quotes in Celtic Gods, Celtic Goddesses.

This smiling hag is the Mistress of Awen, the flowing energy of the Druids, and Taliesen’s later poems sing of her lyrically.

But to receive divine inspiration, Taliesen has to endure death and rebirth, lying nine months in the belly of the Goddess. By her cauldron and womb he is transformed. If Hecate is a traveller, connected with the wild night, Cerridwen for all her moon-face is a hearth-goddess, stirring a heady brew. It’s easy in the Taliesen myth to see her as villainess, but Taliesen himself sang her praises. As goddess of the hearth, she is both the wise grandmother stoking the brands and the fire itself. For wisdom, for rebirth, you must feel this fire, stew in her cauldron a while. Cerridwen beckons you through the smoke.

Druid Common Beliefs

Druid Common Beliefs as we are told

A Druid’s practice is aimed at seeking to understand and achieve sacred relationship with nature and thus the gods.

Belief implies blind faith and that is not the Druid way.

Experience of sacred connection. Wonder and understanding are the foundation stones of the tradition. Not reliance of blind faith in something that one has not personally experienced or perceived.

All Druids, however, seek to connect with the same source of nature. Nature provides some common areas of understanding if not belief.

The following points are therefore presented as statements of common Druidic understanding.
Nature is considered to be unconditionally sacred.

An expression or manifestation of deity and divinity.
Everything exists as an interconnected web.

Although everything is interconnected, for many people that connection is not felt.
They stand apart from the natural world and in many cases consider themselves superior to it.
A Druid seeks to re-connect, use their senses and seek to develop them, open their spirit to the spirit that flows around them, to connect with that flow, that divine source. In other words, experience of the web is essential for honourable living.

All Druids honour the powers of nature, as environment (the Three Worlds of land, sea and sky), as ancestors (of our blood, of our history and land, of our mythology), as heritage and wisdom, and through reverence for the sacred and for deity.

What does this mean? In terms of an integrated system of belief and practice, Druids would be expected to
Respect the natural world (non-human), care for the environment, to study nature (from trees to winds).
Respect human nature, work on their own intellectual and emotional development, care for the community, family and colleagues.
Respect our history; learn about our heritage, ancestors, their stories, languages, ways of life.
Respect the gods, the forces of nature that influence our worlds.

All these are religious tasks, performed not just as a way of serving the gods, ancestors or community, but as a way of connecting with the gods, seeking religiously meaningful and, at times, ecstatic union.

Because the gods are forces of nature and heritage, they exist within every aspect of nature.
Instead of reaching to a single abstract concept of deity (a unique creative supernatural god), Druids find the divine through study, ritual, music, meditation, prayer, dance.
In other words, by singing an old song, learning an old language, sitting by the grave of an ancestor or within an old stone circle, meditating in the rain, planting trees or tending the garden. The Druid opens his soul (mind, consciousness, heart) to connect with the forces of nature (gods) present and influential within that aspect of nature.
He opens his soul to his ancestors and the gods. Their gods guided them into sacred relationship, fulfilment and peace.

This is religious practice seeking connection with deity. The sacred powers of existence are found within all Druidry, throughout the world.
