Mistress of the Moon

The Lady of Delight is known by many names among witches, some of them classical in inspiration like Diana or Hecate, or Celtic like Rhiannon; she is also known as Habondia, Hulda, and Herodias, and sometimes by other versions of the last name, Aradia, Ariadne, or Arianne. She is Mistress of the Moon as well as the realm of Venus.

In all your operations of romantic love it is her presence you must invoke, by any of the aforesaid names you may find significant—again a little mythological research will help you here. You should strive to contact the goddess before your spells of romantic love, by visualizing her clad in silvery garments, mantled in darkness wherein the stars dimly gleam, and with long streaming hair. She is crowned with a wreath of flowers and corn, while above her brow shines the lunar disk on either side of which rise two rearing serpents. On her right hand perches her symbolic bird, the white dove.

All flowers and blossoms, particularly those with a perfume, are sacred to the Lady, and before beginning the more complex operations of love it is as well to strew your altar with them. Apart from the associative symbolism of flowers, they also give off a subtle magnetism which is peculiarly in accord with works of this nature. No magical circle is necessary for these operations either, for the force invoked is benevolent rather than a hostile one, and as such need neither the sharp magical focusing nor the quality of incisive delineation provided by the Athame’s traced boundary line No demonic entities or unfriendly departed shades are summoned in this type of witchcraft. All that is required is the purification of the place of working, and the spell itself.

Magical warfare….

March 11, 2015

…the art of magical warfare is not one to be undertaken lightly, if only for the reason that should the bolt misfire, it will inevitably rebound on the sender. Having accepted this possibility, however, many witches put the discomforting idea totally out of their minds, and proceed merrily on their nefarious ways without giving it another thought. Should you also be of that lighthearted frame of mind, then you will obviously want to learn some of those timehonoured methods of speeding effective curses on their way.

True to the general principles of witchcraft, the means used for effecting destructive ends is exactly the same as those used for constructive purposes. The only difference lies in the magical intent and symbolism involved. The medium for the transmission of power remains exactly the same of course, namely, the deep minds of both parties concerned.

The type of power to be raised for these operations of wrath and chastisement can take two forms: a binding, inhibitory power for inducing inertia or “tying someone’s hands” – this pertains to Saturn; and a scorching, blasting power for blighting and burning (which is what people generally mean by a curse) – this pertains to Mars.

A Coven And How To Form One

February 20, 2015

As regards environment, whenever you wish to perform an operation of witchcraft solo, all you basically need is a corner of your own home, the only prerequisite being privacy and a modicum of soundproofing. The latter is required not so much as a precaution against the neighbour’s objecting to your noise, but rather as a further aid to the discarding of inhibitions, which is of such primary importance in all magic.

However if you wish to gather a larger group of likeminded friends around you for regular witchcraft sessions, then of course you will need a larger space to operate in…Apart from the more obvious aspects of companionship and mutual enjoyment of the practices, the formation of a group or coven…brings with it certain advantages not present in the solo approach.

It is well known among practitioners of the occult arts that a magical operation performed by a group will often succeed spectacularly, whereas a solo effort may achieve only moderate success…Members (of the group) must be fully, and practically, conversant with the four powers of the witches pyramid…If enough pyramid power is brought to (the group) and tied in place by sufficient emotional rapport among the members, witches believe that a pool or vortex of energy begins to form, which, if sustained by regular performance of a ritual, not only becomes an “energy bank” upon which the members can draw to supplement their personal resources, but also an artificially constructed collective deep mind, independent in its own right!

The total number of members to a coven is traditionally limited to anywhere up to thirteen, inclusive of the leaders…In Goddess-oriented covens, with their concentration on the sexual aspects of witchcraft, the groups is ideally made-up of six male-female couples and the leader.

Casting a love spell…

February 18, 2015

Ritual2

Should you or a friend wish to cast a love spell to gain the attentions of another person, it will be well to remember the general witch principle of the transmission of power, which brings me to another big rule of practical witchcraft. A magical operation will always have a greater chance of success if you “complete the circuit”. Extremely powerful witches can indeed work without the aid of object links or power objects with the person or entity they are attempting to influence; they simply locate him or her with their fully activated deep minds and work their will directly. Those of lesser ability, and that of course includes all beginners, must make use of an object link so called, such as was used in the ritual of necromancy in the form of a photograph. That is, an object intimately linked, or belonging to, the person on whom the effect is being worked…

The first and simplest love charm you should learn is one used for centuries by witches.

The Coriander spell.

Pour a small quantity of pure distilled water into the chalice, and count seven coriander seeds into your mortar. Pound these well and strongly summoning an image of the person or persons that the spell is designed to effect, call their names aloud three times, and chant these words:

Warm seed, warm heart,
Let them never be apart.

Then cast the powder into (your) chalice, imagining as you do so the full force of your desire entering it also. See it as a flame descending on the surface of liquid. Complete the spell with the words “So mote it be!” and draw the seal of a triple cross in the air above the cup with your right forefinger. Leave the herb to steep for about twelve hours; then strain the philter through fine muslin or cheesecloth and introduce it secretly into the food or drink of the person or persons the spell is desired to affect.
