Wicca, also termed Pagan Witchcraft, is a contemporary Pagan new religious movement. It was developed in England during the first half of the 20th century and was introduced to the public in 1954 by Gerald Gardner, a retired British civil servant.
Once again I include through my pages topics of interest relating to the craft I have been associated with for several years now
Do you like watching or doing magic? If you do, there are possibilities that you are inclined towards magic as well as witchcraft. If you do have that inclination towards this sort of entertainment, it simply means that you might want to learn witchcraft. Witchcraft, in the very initial stage, is called witchcraft for beginners and is one of the most basic steps for anyone who wishes to learn the art of witch crafting.
There is a common misconception among people who are very religious and also some people who do not know much about witchcraft. However, this has to be taken in mind that witchcraft is also an art and most of the witches or people who are practicing witchcraft for beginners are good at heart and do not constantly nurture cruel intentions.
However, before you take upon yourself to learn witchcraft, you must have the inner strength within yourself. This is of utmost significance since you can use this to your own advantage even while in the learning process, and also once you have mastered the art of witchcraft. One of the best ways to do is to meditate.
Meditation is one of the most effective and trusted ways to keep yourself in sync with your inner self. Witchcraft requires you to commit yourself to the art completely, and this also means that if you wish to desire the use all the benefits of witchcraft, you will have to dedicate yourself to the demands of the art.
If you are beginner in witchcraft, the first thing that you need to do is to gain all the information about it. This must include even the minutest details.
It is necessary to do so since this will give you an idea about what witchcraft really are; it’s requirements, benefits and even its disadvantages.
Buy some books or put the internet to its use to find information about the topic. After you think you have the preliminary knowledge, you can move on to some advanced topics like chanting mantras, casting spells, healing, meditation and also astrology.
Spell casting can be done in a number of ways. You can either use a spell that has originally been written by someone else, or you can just make up one of your own.
However, it must be mentioned that your own spells will work better for you than the ones created by someone other than you.
Writing a spell in not a very difficult task, and this is true even if you are only a beginner in witch crafting.
Witchcraft also requires you to learn about a variety of other topics. These include the importance of the various colours of candles, crystals, oils, incenses and also herbs. The information that you gain hereafter can be helpful when you are about to create a spell.
Witchcraft for beginners might seem slightly difficult; however, meditation and practicing will help you gain perfection at it.
The only thing that you must always keep in mind is that you should always have good intentions when learning the art, and never think of using it to harm other people.

Thought for the day
The art of magic is the art of employing invisible or so-called spiritual agencies to obtain certain visible results.
Thank you for visiting our website may your God or Goddess be with you.
First, light the candle. Next, right your name and the person’s name you want to fall in love with you on the paper. Fold the paper in half and the say “We shall fall in love with me. His love will be unconditional. Our love will be strong and pure. This is my will, so mote it be” You will know that it worked when you feel a weird feeling. If you don’t give it time to at least 2 days.
As always if you have any questions please contact me at the email address below
Why light a candle anyway you may ask. The act of candle lighting has been around for as long as anyone can remember
Candle burning can be classed as sacred to many traditions.
In wicca candle lighting is very important part of our life, while only the other day I was asked by the window cleaner why do I light a candle, “fair enough” I said “it is to show my appreciation for the air I breathe the sights I see the peace of mind I feel and to give thanks to the elementsthat be amongst other things”, his reply was “so were having a cup of tea then” not all will grasp why we carry out our rituals and in a way this is good that we have different views in life I feel, at least he took the time to ask.
I as a wiccan always start my day with candle lighting and finish it accordingly, one is burning now as I type, there are no hard or fast rules written in stone to say when or why anyone can or should light a candle or for what reason it is up to the individual. Years ago I even made my own candles out of bee’s wax which is a very interesting process as its creative, if you are considering making your own candle/s caution all the way with hot molten wax I urge.
A great use of candles is in meditation to calm and sooth, for wiccan spell work, aromatherapy, there are any number of reasons as to why a person lights a candle and many believe in candle magkic.
I always cleanse my candle/s before use usually in the moons waxing period, this can be done with a little oil; this consecrates the candle/s and charges it with energy, it is most important to choose the right colour candle/s for the particular spell, ceremony rite you wish to perform as the colour holds power also. I believe the charged candle/s holds power from the charger, I only use one candle per spell or ceremony, candles are used to enhance the spells power and this power or energy is released as the candle burns, I never blow a candle out I use a brass snuffer for putting the candle out. The candle represents the element fire, if you are just starting out on the wiccan path I suggest the study of the different colours of candles before you attempt spell casting or other rituals, for the wrong colour can produce an undesired effect. Happy candle lighting.
Candle magick healing is a beautiful procedure and candle burning is one of most simple forms of magic
It can be performed almost anywhere and candles are very easy to purchase.
The basic principles are to concentrate, visualize and using the candle as a focus point for your own inner energy.
Candle magic can be used for overcoming bad habits, attracting things, settling disturbing atmospheres, protection, regaining health, and developing psychic powers. Candles can also be used to honour someone near and dear to you.
The colour of the candle and its vibration is activated, released and amplified when it is lit. As the candle burns, the colour is released into the surrounding areas and affects those in this area.
The colour of the candle that you use is determined by the kind of healing needed. Consult the list on which corresponds to different conditions given below.
All candles should be cleansed, like you clean everything that is a tool for healing, and blessed, before you use them. Say a little prayer over the candle before you light it. This cleanses the candle of negativity. It also strengthens the colour so that it works more effectively for the healing.
Once you have used a candle for a specific purpose, keep it for this purpose. If you have it for healing or meditation, keep them separate. Allow it to build up the vibration that you are using if for, otherwise it will set up conflicting vibrations.
Any candle will be effective. For longer, more sustained effects, church candles can be quite effective. They can burn for a long time. Do not leave a candle unattended. Burn them in the right candle holders.
Do not use candles to interfere with the free will of another. The rebound effect can be very dramatic.
Putting out the candle should be the last thing after the healing has been done. When extinguishing the candle, visualize that the healing breath is healing the area that is needed to be healed. Do not blow the candle out, get a piece of tin foil or cone to put out the flame.
You should clean the area where you place your candles. While working with the candles stay relaxed with a positive state of mind. Choose new, unused candles. Do not use the ones you choose for any other purpose.
Quiet surroundings are helpful, some people use soft music. Before any candle ritual, do not eat or engage in negative activities. A “cleansing” bath is also helpful.
Hold the candle in your hands for a few moments to allow your own vibrations to enter the candle. This will enable the wax to absorb a bit of your life force.
Using essential oils on the candle is fine. The energy from your hands will pass into the wax. Always start rubbing the oil from the top to the bottom when anointing a candle. Then go from bottom up to the centre of the candle. While you oil the candle, you should concentrate on what you want to accomplish with the candle. Visualize success with the ritual and see your desires accomplished.
Candles and Colour.
Colour is very important in candle magic. Colour has subtle influences and each one vibrates at a different frequency. Different coloured candles are used for different magical end-results. Different colours have different effects on the human psyche and the surrounding environment. These colours and their vibrations are also closely linked with the psychic energy within each person.
Each color in the spectrum is connected with the astrological signs of the Zodiac and their planetary rulers. Use the colours used in candle magic together with their magical significance’s and the influences of each astrological sign.
Aries (March 21 April 20) Ruling planet – Mars.
Shades of red, usually the darker shades of scarlet or crimson. Magically the planet Mars is the purifier and destroyer who sweeps aside the stagnant, the unwanted and the redundant so progress can be made. Red also represents the creative principle and the unconscious urge for the human species to reproduce itself, for life and death are two aspects of the same energy.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21) Ruling planet – Venus.
Green, ranging from the palest apple green to the dark olive of the earth forces. Green represents the spiritual desire to unite the opposites and to balance the dual forces of male and female. This union was known to the medieval alchemists as “the sacred marriage” and is symbolized in magic and Wicca by the ritual metaphor of the sword in the chalice.

The yoga Moon Ritual can be performed in several ways
To prepare for this ritual you need to get a small piece of amethyst and a strip of natural cloth or a delicate chain arrangement out of which you can make a head-band.
Place the amethyst so that it will rest over the third-eye, the chakra or psychic centre in the middle of the forehead.
You will need one of these for each member who is participating in the circle. You will also need sandalwood oil and sandalwood incense, as well as a wand or a long-stem rose with the thorns removed.
You will also need a chalice filled with spring water and a bowl of water as well as a bowl of salt. You will need 6 white candles 2 for the altar and one for each of the 4 directions.
You will also, need holders for them as well as matches and a snuffer or a silver teaspoon to snuff the candles. You will also need a burner for the incense or, if you are using joss-stick type incense, a small cup with salt or sand in it to stand the incense in.
Everything but should be set up in advance and consecrated in some way. Your altar should face the east, but be in the centre of the circle if at all possible.
YOU WILL ALSO NEED A BRASS OR SILVER, CLEAR-TONED BELL.
Priestess – rings bell. All – chanted – OM Priestess – “In the beginning was the word, the sacred sound, and from itarose SHAKTI, she who dances, the eternally changing one.” All – chanted – “OM”. Priestess – “We celebrate with Shakti tonight, in her changes, and allowher to dance through our lives, transforming us.” All – chanted – “OM”. The priestess takes the wand or the rose (hopefully if you have used therose you had the sense to remove the thorns) and blesses the salt, saying Priestess – This salt symbolizes the pure seed of Shiva, that eternalbliss that enters our awareness in meditation“. Likewise she blesses the water saying Priestess – “This water is the water of Shakti’s womb, which is withineach of us, and which brings the pure awareness to birth in our consciousminds”. She combines the two and blesses it with the wand saying Priestess – “it is done”. She then sprinkles the outer perimeter of the circle with this mixturemoving counter-clockwise, as all chant together all- chanting – “KALI Durge Namo Nama”.
(This chant asks the female energy in the crone form to remove all theobstacles and impurities from us that we may become enlightened)
The priestess then lights the sandalwood incense and censes the outer perimeter of the circle with it, moving clockwise. All – chanting – “OM NAMAHA SHIVAIA”
(This Mantra honours the LORD – the Divine self within us).
The Priestess then goes to the East and raising her wand says – Priestess – “Hail to the East”all- “Hail to the East” Priestess – “We invite the Devas of the air to swirl and dance around ustonight bringing us new ideas from the dawn and renewed inspirations like abreath of fresh air.” All – “so be it” She goes to the south and raises her wand Priestess – “Hail to the south” All – “Hail to the south” Priestess – “We invite the Devas of the south, of the noon-time, to dancearound us tonight, giving us the gift of passionate love and warmfriendship from the powers of fire”.” All – “So be it” She goes to the west and raises her wand Priestess – “Hail to the West” All – “Hail to the west” Priestess – ” We invite the Devas of the West, of water and of the sun-setland to dance around us tonight giving us the gift of happiness that comeswith love and friendship” all- “So Be it” She goes to the North and raises her wand again says Priestess – “Hail to the North” all- “Hail to the North” Priestess – “we invite the Devas of the North, of the earth, to come fromthe land of midnight and dance around us, giving stability and security toour lives and our magick this night” All- “SO be it” She returns to the East once more and salutes it again with her wand and says, Priestess “Hail to the East” all- “Hail to the East, from whence wisdom arises” She returns to face the altar in the centre of the circle and raises herwand high she says Priestess – ” Come forth Shiva, through the Dance of Shakti,Come forth and reveal to us the Divine Self” All – “So be it”
She chants the SACRED OM and anoints her 3d eye with Sandalwood oil then says,
Priestess – “So do we prepare the throne of Shiva” She then passes the oil to her priest who does likewise, then he anointseach one in the circle as they individually chant the sacred OM, like thePriestess did to herself and to him, he says each time Priest – after each anointing – “So do we prepare the throne of SHiva” The Priestess then takes up the wand or the rose again, or an athame ifthis is preferred, and casts the circle 3 times from the East and movingclockwise while saying Priestess – first casting – “I cast the light of the Pure awareness, ofShiva, to protect us and bless us” All – “So Be it” Priestess – second casting – “I cast the pure force, which is SHakti, toenfold usin a shield of love and bliss“ All- “SO Be it” Priestess – third casting – “I cast the power of Wisdom from the Gurus andSages of all times and their wisdom gives us safety this night” All- “So be it” She then seats herself on the floor and invites everyone to done theirheadbands, placing them on the third-eye and she says Priestess – :” This is the night when the moon is full and when the forcespersonified as Shiva and Shakti are balanced and harmonious. Let us greetthe Shakti and allow her energy to rise in us that it may be joined to herconsort, Lord Shakti, that the pure awareness may break forth within us” At this point some New-Age Music should be played and people shouldmeditate for 15 – 20 minutes focusing on energizing their 3d eye andopening their Psychic awareness. Feel the energies rising from the base of your spine up to the centre ofyour forehead. Rejoice and know that Shiva and SHakti are being unitedwithin you.
After this has been done the Priestess says Priestess – “Now picture the light emerging through the top of your headand connecting to the rainbow light that is now coming from everyone in theroom to form a ball of multi-hued light above the centre of the circle see the light growing stronger and stronger take a deep breath and on the count of three release your breath and know that the light is going out to enlighten the world and everyone in it”. All – “So be it”

She goes to the North raising her wand and says Priestess – “We thank the devas for dancing with us and sharing the blissof this night” All- “So be it” She repeats this in the west then the south and finally the East, movingcounter-clockwise. Then she says Priestess – “We bid farewell to all the Devas of the North and the west andthe south and the east” All- “SO BE IT” Then from the east she takes her wand, rose, or athame and opens thecircle moving counter-clockwise and says Priestess – “We open the circle and bring our BLISS of Awareness into ourdaily lives, as a blessing to all” All- “So Be it”.
