The wild goddess has passed through the city of whoredom and has emerged intact as the witch on the heath. There was never one goddess of witchcraft, but rather a thousand Ishtars: mild white, blood red, lamp black. There can never be orthodoxy. We are simultaneously possessed, annihilated and forever outside of Time.
She is immanent.
She dwells within us.

For the Punishment of an Unfaithful Lover:
One must buy a new candle and its price must not be haggled over.
Take the candle to the hearth with three pins and at midnight light the candle.
Heat then the point of each pin within the flame before sticking them into the candle whilst uttering the following words:
“Thrice is the candle broke by me, and thrice thy heart shall broken be.”
(Gemma Gary is a British Craft initiate and occultist, a writer, artist, illustrator and a trustee of ‘Friends of the Boscastle Museum of Witchcraft’. Her written work explores witchcraft and folk magical traditions, often with a focus on these traditions as found in Devonshire and Cornwall. See HERE).

“Poetry is above all a concentration of the power of language, which is the power of our ultimate relationship to everything in the universe. It is as if forces we can lay claim to in no other way, become present to us in sensuous form. The knowledge and use of this magic goes back very far: the rune; the chant; the incantation; the spell; the kenning; sacred words; forbidden words; the naming of the child, the plant, the insect, the ocean, the configuration of stars, the snow, the sensation in the body. The ritual telling of the dream. The physical reality of the human voice; of words gouged or incised in stone or wood, woven in silk or wool, painted on vellum, or traced in sand.”
