Elemental Cauldrons is a must for your book of shadows

Using a cauldron, symbol of inspiration and rebirth, has brought new dimensions to both group and solitary work.

A cauldron decorates the centre of the Circle during Lesser Sabbats.

An air cauldron at a spring rite creates a misty, magical quality for the ceremony. In summer, the cauldron will flash and spark. A blue flame burns mysteriously within the Water cauldron during the autumn festival. Throughout Yule, the Earth cauldron burns steadfast and constant. 

During moon rites, when magic is done, we write the purpose of our working on flash papers and toss them into the burning cauldron while chanting. A working cauldron should be of cast iron, with a tight-fitting lid, three sturdy legs, and a strong handle.

Season your cauldron before using it for the first time.

Pour in a generous helping of salt and lighter fluid, slosh it up to the rim and wipe dry. For indoor use it must have a fireproof base or your workings will summon up yellow-coated salamander spirits from the fire department.

Earth Cauldron

Layer salt, wax shavings, three powered or ground herbs, fighter fluid and ivy leaves in the cauldron while focusing and chanting. Use a candle to light it. When the smoke starts to roll, extinguish the cauldron by putting the lid on.

Air Cauldron

Using tongs put a chunk of dry ice in a small glass or ceramic bowl and place the bowl on a cloth in the bottom of the cauldron. Allow the cauldron to smoke as long as the ice lasts. The mists create excellent images for scrying.

Fire Cauldron

Cover the inside bottom with dirt or sand to dissipate. Light incense charcoal and add either saltpetre for flame and spark or flash powder for a different but spectacular effect. To assist in releasing or firing off peak energy, try using flash “bombs”. Make a small pocket in a piece of flash paper, fill with flash powder and tie with thread. The “bomb” should be about the size of your smallest fingernail. The results are spectacularly bright, so use the powder sparingly. Don’t look directly at the flash as you drop the “bomb” in the cauldron.

Water Cauldron.

At least seven days before the ritual, place equal quantities of three appropriate herbs in a pint glass jar. Fill the rest of the jar with Ever clear (200 proof alcohol), cap tightly, and shake gently while concentrating on the purpose of the ritual. Add a chant if its feels right. Let the jar rest in a dark, warm spot and shake twice daily, charging with purpose. Before the ritual, place a fireproof ceramic or glass bowl in the cauldron. Pour in the herb mixture, being careful none spills into the cauldron. Light with a candle to produce a beautiful blue flame.

The cauldron, as the fifth elemental spirit, symbolizes inspiration, rebirth, illumination and rejuvenation.

Use a Fire cauldron with saltpetre to cast a Circle. Use the mists of an Air cauldron for an initiation. Burn away hate, prejudice and negative self-images, with a Water cauldron. The Earth cauldron is ideal for indoor Beltane rites. Remember to place a burning cauldron on a fireproof surface. Practice safety when using any volatile materials and you will enjoy your cauldron for many rites.

Invocation Horned One

Invocation Horned One

Invocation Horned One

Invocation Horned One

The Horned God is one of the two primary deities found in Wicca and some related forms of Neopaganism. Below are workings related to him.

Eko; Eko Azarak! Eko; Eko Zomelak!
Eko; Eko Cernunnos! Eko; Eko; Arada!
Bagabi lacha bachabe;
Lamac cahi achababa,
Karellyos!
Lamac Lamac Bachalyas;
Cabahagy Sabalyas,
Baryolas!
Lagoz atha Cabyolas;
Samahac atha femyolas,
Harrahya!

Return to the east, and facing west across the altar, gather up the three pieces of twine and consecrate them with incense and wine in the name of the Horned One. Then knot the ends of the twine and braid them together, binding the hair into the plait as you do. Summon up the image of your victim in your mind’s eye as you do this, repeating this quaint jingle over and over:

Lord Cernunnos I ask of thee,
let [name] no pleasure, sleep, nor solace see,
till heart and loins be turned to me!

When the cord is woven, tie the free twine ends together forcefully with the words:
As my will, so mote it be!

No triple cross of sealing is necessary here since the tying action is forceful enough on its own.

Fasten the finished cord around the upper part of your thigh if you are a woman or around the genital organs themselves if you are a man, tight enough not to slip, but not so tight as to restrict the circulation of the blood. This would only be self-defeating. Wear this cord, or cingulum as we call it, for twenty-eight days, removing it only for showers or bathing.

Should no appreciable result have occurred by this time, you up the ante, so to speak, and set the seal on the magic by performing this final part of the spell:

Prepare your place of working with a large floor triangle again and with the usual arrangements of lamps, incense, and pinecones on the altar, making quite sure that the thurible contains a good quantity of glowing charcoals. The chalice should be back again in the triangle, this time containing a few drops of olive oil, red wine, honey, and your own blood or urine.

Then invoke Cernunnos at all four quarters as previously. Remove the cord and tie nine knots along it, beginning with one at either end and working in pairs towards the centre, where you should place the final one. As you do this, repeat your charm with each knot:

Lord Cernunnos I ask of thee,
let [name] no pleasure, sleep, nor solace see,
till heart and loins be turned to me!
Finish on the last knot with “As my will, so mote it be!”

Having done this, dip the cord briefly in the chalice so that it picks up a few drops of the liquid, then cast it, together with a few grains of your incense, onto the thurible coals, repeating these words with all the intense conviction, not to say lust, you can manage:

Ure Spiritus Igne
Renes nostros et cor nostrum
Fiat, Fiat, Fiat!

The second half of the process reinforces the subtle effect of the first on the victim’s deep mind, and gives it a sharp reminder of what all the nudging has been about.

Incidentally, some malicious witches who take a delight, indeed pride themselves on such matters, perform the Love Knot in reverse on pairs of lovers or married couples. This operation is known in the craft by the interesting French name Denoument des noeuds, or “losing the marriage knots.” It has been practised through the centuries, and sixteenth-century theologians such as Del Rio, De Lancre, and Bodin spoke frequently of it in their writings. It was one of the prevalent witch practices which fanned the flames of hysteria in the public mind almost more than anything else leading to popular endorsement of the great witch persecutions of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

knot Magic explained

Knot magic explained

Knot magic explained

Knot magic explained. Knot magic is used in the life of a wiccan and other religious and non-religious groups

It can be called cord workings or cord/knot magick depending on the group or solitary that is using this type of craft.An example of knot magick from the old ways you may have heard of is tying a knot in a handkerchief to remember a certain aspect of life this is yet another form of knot magick is it not.

The materials can vary from ordinary household string to more elaborate silk cords or ribbons depending on the user and the occasion it is required for.

You may wish to use more than one colour to enhance the magickal energy you are invoking into the cord/ribbon you have chosen to work with, even twist the materials together in a braiding length.

What we are aiming for in knot magick is tying our channelled energy, via a simple process into a positive goal and to harm none in any way, through experience you will find the right length thickness and colour material for any given knot spell or working therefore knot magick can be used for any occasion one desires from love spells to warding of negative energy and you will find it is of the binding spell type.
In any spell negativity can occur, a simple way of dispersing the negative energy is to tie a slip knot in to your working to release the bad energy and release it as required.

We must before any spell knot magick can commence cleanse our materials in the usual way with a chant, the use of salt, incense or the likes as long as the mood is calm the energy created will be focused into the knot created.

There are many knot spells, techniques and they vary from person to person here is a four knot spell for example

Sit quietly with materials at hand and concentrate on your goal visualize the energy flowing into your workings chant if you find this brings more meaning to your spell let there be soothing music playing in the background set the mood.
Now chant the following or by all means make your own personal chant:

This knot I tie will not lie
for it is binding till I die
Bring the power I desire
bind it tight within the hour

While chanting the above the knots can be tied and placed on your altar, table or selected spot while the spell is manifesting, if desired it can be worn or carried with you, many wiccans have a spell box into which there spell material is placed, or it is set free in a flowing river or stream or may be buried depending on the wish of the caster. Remember always to give thanks to the elements that be on completion.

Making your own Incense

making your own incense

making your own incense

Please take care when making your own Incense

Incense, representing the element of air in most rituals, is quite easy to make. In making incense you will need to measure some liquids by the dram. 

Conversion Chart:

* 1/8 fluid ounce = 1 dram = 1/2 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon.
* 1/4 fluid ounce = 2 drams = 1 and 1/4 teaspoons or 1/2 tablespoon.
* 1/2 fluid ounce = 4 drams =1 tablespoon.
* 3/4 fluid ounce = 6 drams = 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 tablespoon.
* 1 fluid ounce = 8 drams = 2 tablespoons.

The following recipes are all for granular incense, the type one burns on a round of charcoal. 

DO NOT USE CHARCOAL BRIQUETS! They give off poisonous fumes when burned indoors.

To make the incense, first powder all your solid ingredients and mix them well in your mortar and pestle. In a separate container, mix all of the liquid ingredients. Dissolve the saltpetre in the liquids.
*Slowly* add the liquids to your powdered mixture. Spread in a small tin pan or plastic container that you do not plan to use for food any longer and allow to dry.

The drying time varies but usually takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour.
When dry, simply crumble up your incense. It is now ready to burn. Several of the following recipes call for Tincture of Benzoin. To make your own powder 2 ounces of benzoin gum and add 4 ounces of water and 12 ounces of alcohol. Keep this mixture bottled and capped tightly for two weeks but do shake it daily. After two weeks, strain the liquid and bottle it for future use.

We are not responsible for any adverse reactions to any incense displayed on this website proceed at your own risk.
