Midsummer Ritual

midsummer ritual

midsummer ritual

Midsummer Ritual as is our way begins by casting a circle.

Now stand before your altar and say the following or similar:
“Great God of the sun, I have come here this day to honour you in your strength, for I know that now is the time of your greatest power.”

Raise your Wand or Athame towards the sun and say the following or similar:
“Great father God, Great mother Goddess, come into my heart, and purify me.
Smite the evil in my soul, just as your magickal love purges the evil from all things.”

Visualize the energy of the sun flowing into your athame, and into you.
See it clean any impurities that exist in you. Feel it as it cleans you.
Once you have finished reflecting on the God and Goddess‘ purification of you
move to the south side of you circle (the direction of fire) and light a (small) ritual fire.
Now say the following or similar: “Great horned father may this fire burn in representation of your greatness.”

Meditate for a while (while staring into the flames) on the sun, and all it does for us.
Once you have meditated, you should allow yourself some time to commune with the gods.
Just open your mind to them and let them speak to you.
If you like you can thank them and tell them what midsummer means to you.
Or you can just lay there in silence and know that they are watching.
Once you are done, thank the gods for watching over you.
The ritual part of this rite is over; however, midsummer & midsummer’s night are probably the best times to perform magick.
Any spells cast during this time are likely to be vastly more powerful than when cast at other times.
If you do not have any particular thing to cast a spell for then perhaps now would be the best time to cast a spell that ensures happiness for you over the coming winter months. Think hard about it, because this opportunity comes but once a year.

Anointing and Dressing a spell candle

anointing

anointing

After cleansing and blessing a spell candle, many like to add potency to their spell by anointing and dressing their candle

It’s a very simple process, but it does add the personal touch which increases the chance of success.

You will need something with a fine point to scratch the surface of the candle. It can be a pin, a specialist scribing tool, a cocktail stick or anything else your imagination can dream up. Once you have chosen your tool though, dedicate it properly, then tuck it away in your magical tool chest and reserve it for just this purpose.

Inscribing the candle is simply marking words or symbols on the candle that are relevant to the outcome you want. Perhaps if you need fast money you could inscribe the runic symbol for Gifu (Gift). If you are seeking success in business, you could write the word ‘success’ along the length. If you are seeking love, draw a heart on the candle – well, you get the idea……

As you are inscribing your candle, visualize the outcome.

Make it a small ritual in its own right. Once you have inscribed your candle, you may wish to ‘Dress’ it. This is optional, your choice entirely, but it’s easy and again adds to the potency of your spell.

Dressing a candle‘ is anointing it with an oil that again is relevant to your desire – To attract love, try the ‘Come to me’ oil, for luck try the ‘Black Cat’ oil, for when you feel Lady Luck is working against you, try a banishing spell and use ‘Jinx Removing’ Oil.

The method for anointing your candle is pretty specific.

The most general method is to hold the candle in one hand, dip the first two fingers of the other hand in oil and starting at the top (the end with the wick) run your oiled finger down toward the centre of the candle. Stop at the centre, lift your finger off, turn the candle slightly and repeat the process until all the top half of the candle is covered. Then starting at the base of the candles, run the oiled fingers toward the centre. Again stop at the centre, lift the fingers off, turn the candle slightly and repeat the process until the entire bottom of the candle has been coated.

The whole time you are anointing the candle, concentrate on the outcome you wish to achieve with your spell.

Experienced spell weavers often anoint the candle in a specific direction depending on the type of spell they are performing. For spells to attract something to the spell weaver, the candle is anointed from top to middle, then from bottom to middle. For banishing or sending something away i.e. getting rid of bad habits, negative energy, breaking jinxes or hexes, the candle is dressed from the centre out to the top, and then from the centre out to the bottom.

Once the candle is coated in oil, it can be rolled in herbs relevant to the particular spell you are performing.

For example, use Agrimony for breaking hexes and returning them to sender, use Chamomile for attracting friendship, Hyssop for purification and cleansing, Patchouli for wealth and so on. Once you have lit your spell candle and performed your spell, allow the candle to burn itself out completely.

The Magic Coin Spell & Love Bracelet Spell are possible entries for your book of shadows

The Magic Coin Spell

This is the spell that can multiply your wealth. It should be carried out with the rising moon on Thursday between 21-22 hours.

You will need the following

8 Green Candles
Incense burner
Pink oil
Chamomile flowers
Picture of bees

Place candles in a circle, and place boiler with coal in the middle. Crush the coals and pick your purse up with your hands. Drip a bit of pink oil; leave it on smoking in a boiler. Add a few chamomile flowers and images of bees. Imagine a large coin in your purse. Thank the gods for having listened to you and help you carry out your wishes.


The Love Bracelet Spell

Ingredients: 100 apple seeds, needles, red thread, red candle.

Light a candle. Pass the thread into the needle and start stringing the apple seeds, representing all the qualities you want in your chosen one. Pronounce them out loud. When finished, tie the thread ends with three nodes. Your love bracelet is ready. Let it lie down near the candle (but not too close), so that it does not burn completely. After that, wear a bracelet on your wrist every day and at night put under the pillow. When you meet your love, bury the bracelet in the ground in a secret place.

A few ideas on how to make bracelets below for you to try.

Making your own book of shadows

Making your own book of shadows

Making your own book of shadows

Making your own book of shadows can be as easy or as complex as you wish

Your book of shadows is your personal reference to the path you tread.

True you can purchase a very mystic looking book of shadows from the many wiccan shops now catering for our needs.

It is true that they are brilliant in design and all ready for use after cleansing but to actually create your own is a very satisfying feeling knowing that no one has the same design as you, a one off, customized to your own requirements.

I have found it really useful to cover my books in a wax resistant covering in case of spillages when working on my altar near candles and wine ceremonies. I had the misfortune to spill wine on an unprotected book years ago and soon learned that covering was the best option several sodden and stained pages later.

When asked I always reply a hand written page for my book of shadows has more power than one typed on a computer but there again it is up to you to decide, as there are many pages of interest on the internet just waiting to be typed out and slipped into your book.

The main issue I came across when making my first book of shadows was to keep it as simple as possible.

I would suggest you try using a ring binder folder of the A4 size so it will be easy to partition your different entries into convenient sections, you can still slip your folder into an handmade outer book covering if you wish to give your new book of shadows a personal mysterious look.

It is entirely up to you what you choose to put in it and you may personalize it as you choose, you do not have to be Wiccan to create your own (BOS).

Your book covering can be decorated in any way you deem fit as long as it is personalized to you, the outer cover instead of being of plain appearance would maybe look better covered with beads, ribbons, fancy wording, symbols as you like, the more elaborate books have locks on them.

All the rituals and spell I place in my book of shadows are worked in my own hand writing this I believe helps to transfer energy back to me, and also helps me to memorize the contents. I try to write as clearly as I can for the purpose of reading back my workings in a ritual setting. I have seen all kinds of scripts in other wiccans books, all personalized to the individual but before using your new book of shadows it is wise to cleanse (consecrated) the book by the following means described below.

It is important to be facing the North as the earth’s magnetic energy is focused there; a compass is an essential tool for this purpose.

Once you have determined the North facing position place your book on a table, shelf or floor making sure the area to be used is clean.
Using a thimble of pure salt sprinkle lightly the area around the book using the following chant:
This salt I sprinkle freely will purify this book for me,
thus all which is placed within it is personalized to me.

This is just an example of the words to be said, by all means create your own chant. Your book is now ready to use.

Record your spell workings in your BOS, some witches keep a separate book called a “grimoire” which is used solely for spells and such; you can make your own grimoire or keep your spells in your BOS. I prefer to use my book of shadows for all my workings, separated by page dividers or tabs. As in any book you need an index system of some description to find things easily because magickal workings in wiccan do have rules and laws that we live by, I always keep my index pages at the front of my book for this reason.

Page numbering is a great idea for should one or a bunch of pages drop out of your book of shadows it’s easy to reassemble that’s from experience as well I mention this.

One thing I can assure you of is you will never run out of things to enter into you book be it writings, pressed flowers, sketches, codes, rituals the list goes on, I have filled many books over the years and it’s a joy to dust off my old books now and again to browse through my earlier wiccan path workings.

Here are just a few ideas you could enter into your new book of shadows:

  1. Poetry for many spells is of the poetic type.
    2. Rituals of all kinds
    3. The moons phases and how you work with them.
    4. The god and goddess.
    5. Your daily thoughts.
    6. When you first joined a coven or are thinking of.
    7. Herbs that you may wish to use daily or in rituals.
    8. Incense.
    9. Sabbat rituals.
    10. Candle colours.
    11. Ceremonies.
    12. When you first set up your altar.
    13. The wiccan Rede.

I also write down the books on subjects I have read.
As you can see there is always something to enter as we never finish learning and our book of shadows is a sacred book that has to be protected, to be treated with respect and kept out of the reach of children or animals please protect it you will reap the rewards of a well-kept book of shadows, remember your book of shadows is a vital tool in the world of wicca. Merry Part.

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.
