Powerful Wish Spell

Powerful Wish Spell Cover POWERFUL WISH SPELL

This is a little complicated to describe but is well worth it.

You need a piece of recycled paper (recycled Notebook paper work's fine). On the
paper, write a short poem or chant to the Goddess and God that states your wish.
It is alright if you aren't the best poet on earth, but its very important that
you say exactly how you feel and what exactly you need. Do you best and say it
from the heart. Close the poem with thanks to the Goddess and God.

Fold it in half with the words inside it. Draw a triple goddess sign on the
outside. Now fold it in half again with the symbol on the inside. Draw a
pentacle on the paper. Finally, flip it over and write your name and birth date
on the other side. Put this aside in a safe place and your wish will come true
in due time. If you change your mind before it comes true, burn the paper and
put the ashes to the earth.

Hex Your Enemy

Hex Your Enemy Cover
Hex #1

Put some brown sugar in a bowl, set a brown candle in the center, light it and
let it burn down. Next morning take the contents of the bowl (sugar and wax) and
place it on the doorstep of your enemy. As he steps over it, he will feel the
thought you were sending to him as the candle burned.

Hex #2

Burn some sulphur.
Light a black candle and say:

"Here stands mine enemy, all alone. He is without friends, without help.
(Enemy's name) I pity thee. Naught is before thee, naught is behind thee. All
your plans are naught. Sickness, fear, doubt and worry are keeping up on thee.
Anger, discord and trouble are to be your new companions. Soon you will pay
three-fold for tormenting me."

Write the name of your enemy on parchment or paper, then hold in your left hand
and let the flame of the candle consume it. Do this when the black candle has
almost burned out. Then take the charred remains of the parchment or paper and
the remains of the black candle. Drop them in a black cloth and leave them near
your enemy.

A Penny For Loving

A Penny For Loving Cover
From Earth, Air, Fire, & Water By Scott Cunningham

The use of a penny in this spell may need some explanation.
Older pennies are made from copper, and copper is the metal of planet Venus and of the element of Water, both loving energies. That's why a penny is used here.

To smooth the path of a rocky relationship, Visualize you and your mate enjoying happy times, giving full attention to your love. Pour this energy into the penny that you hold in your projective hand. Then toss the penny over your right shoulder into a well while saying...

"Coin of the realm,
metal of Venus,
Ensure that naught will
Come between us.
Strengthen our love
This magical day,
This is our will
And this is our way.

Note: This will be affective only when both parties
are attempting to improve the relationship.

A Spell For Protection Against Any Evil

A Spell For Protection Against Any Evil Cover

You Need:

Your Staff/wand
Silver or blue shiny glitter
A quiet place- best outdoors

You will need your staff (or wand) for this spell. It is
best if the staff used is blue, white of silver- The easiest
way to achieve this is to bind a ribbon, or ribbons, of the
color around it for the spell. This means you can
remove them afterwards.
1. It is best to go outside for this spell, as the air
movement will help disperse the glitter, and the magick.
2. Cast a circle, or create a sacred space.
3. Go to each quarter in turn (start with the West, then
North, East and south
), and pound or tap the ground with
your staff/wand chanting:
“I call thee, you who guard the watchtowers of the
(direction) to guide me through the darkness, and ensure
my safety”. Do this for all 4 quarters.
4. Stand in the center and say,
“In the shadows, evils hide,
Ready to draw me from love’s side,
But with your help I shall be strong
And banish all that do me wrong
Send them away, send them astray
Never again to pass my way,
So mote it be”
As you say the last 3 lines, scatter the glitter in a circle
around you.
5. Close the circle, and have something to eat to restore
your energies!

The Magical And Ritual Use Of Herbs

The Magical And Ritual Use Of Herbs Cover

Book: The Magical And Ritual Use Of Herbs by Richard Alan Miller

One in the series of books by Richard Alan Miller. (The others being "Magical and Ritual use of Perfumes" with Iona Miller, and "magical and Ritual Use of Aphrodisiacs") This book is a typical example of the attention to detail, clarity of writing, and concise nature that I have come to expect from the author.

Covering some of the more Pharmocologically active herbs,the coverage is complete enough for my friends in the medical feilds, without losing readers with less chemistry knowledge (like me). There are diagrams of the active chemical compounds, when known, and lots of details about growth and habitat, but the directions and hazards of use are clear enough for a novice.

While not covering the more common herbs, such as Rosemary, or sage, this book is a valued part of my herbal library. I sincerely hope that the author writes a more wide ranging book on herbs in the future! Definately worth every penny.

Magical and Ritual Use Of Herbs investigates the habitat, cultivation, historical use, chemical structure and benefits of nineteen psycho-active herbs. These plants are discussed by chapter in the following categories: Stimulants (including Damiana, Passionflower and Guarana), Depressants (including Lobelia, Skullcap and Valerian), Narcotics (Wild Lettuce and Wormwood), Hallucinogens (including Kava Kava, Yohimbe, Amanita Muscaria, Morning Glory Seed and Psilocybe Mushroom). Their preparation, ritual use, primary effects and potential hazards are described in detail.

Some of the benefits that may be derived from the wise use of these plants include stress relief (Kava Kava and Valerian Root), increased energy (Guarana), restful sleep and cleansing (Wormwood) and spiritual development (Fly Agaric, Psilocybe). The author writes with great authority, effortlessly blending scientific and esoteric knowledge. I enjoyed his no-nonsense factual approach. The book includes a Quick Reference Chart, a Bibliography and a Chemistry, Botanics/Organic and General Index, making it a valuable reference work in addition to a fascinating read.

Magical and Ritual Use Of Herbs is very informative, clearly written and well organized. One must have knowledge of wild crafting (plant gathering) and a pretty good knowledge of chemistry to take full advantage of what it has offer. It provides excellent and concise information on herbal effect and very clear warnings.

What Is A Circle

What Is A Circle Cover


How many of you cast Circles when doing rituals? If you don't cast one, what do you do to set aside sacred space, if anything? If you *do* cast one, how do you visualize it spatially? A sphere? A cone? A column? Completely enclosed, or open? Do you use a certain color, sound, smell, etc., when visualizing your Circle? What's it made of? Is it rigid or flexible? If it's rigid, what will break it, and what happens when it's broken?

Answers and Recommendations:

What people see when they "look" at a circle is very personal. It has been my experience that everyone sees energy differently. This is one reason I recommend coven training if possible. You have someone to call when you need to say "Something weird happened!"

I teach my students that the circle is a large sphere. When I cast a ritual circle, I usually see large, very large ribbons of blue light. My non-ritual circles are usually white light. I don't visualize specific colors. All my circles can be walked into, however, if we are in circle, you better stop and ask permission to enter or exit out of respect for the Gods. I have permanent circles set for sleep circles and wards. They only need to be "popped up" when I put my son to bed. These stay up until around dawn.

As an interesting aside regarding seeing energy - I don't see colors in auras. I *know* what colors are there, but I see them with my "inner" eye. I had to go to someone who knew how to see auras and look at people, telling her what colors I "saw." She confirmed what I saw, so I knew that I was working correctly.

I always cast a circle....a make do circle outdoors on my concrete patio works well. Each one is outlined with a different color, depending on the workings and seasons, and I always visualize it protectively in a gold light. Works for me. I sit out with my eyes closed until I feel the space 'warm' to me. Usually I view it as a spatial flat circle, with little flames of gold around the perimeter to keep the energy in. At the end of ritual, instead of grounding the energy, I do a little self hug which wraps up the energy into myself. Solitaries can get away with this sort of improvisation! :)

I use something a little different, I suppose...then again, my path is one of long family tradition: I don't use colors, light, candles, scents or the like, but extend from myself lovingness while seeking the blessings of the four winds (I usually practice out-of-doors, and living in the high Colorado mountains, fully clad for sensibility sake, I might add). Guarding my circle are the wolf, the eagle, the coyote and the badger: One time I was on a date with a woman who is something of a mystic, herself, and she did see the wolf guarding us...very unusual. I rarely if ever bring anyone into my circle: The purpose of this circle was to divine the reasons for our coming together when and where we did.

But my protection I leave to Spirit: I see and hear a lot of fear on this echo that I personally do not subscribe to (i.e. "evil" entities and the like). I don't judge that viewpoint, but rather differ from it. I allow whatever to come to me that I may gain wisdom from it: Spirit has never tested me more severely than I can withstand, thus....even though it sometimes hurt, I do learn. And pardon my preachiness here: I have seen the smothering effect of making too many fear-based decisions rather than love-based ones: Fear makes we/they statements. Love makes "here is where our paths cross and meet well" statements.

I generally visualize a line of silver-blue fire at waist level that extends all around me forming either a half sphere or three-quarters of a sphere, depending on the working going on, if it is a formal working it is a dome, as I tend to want to keep the earth a part of the work. Usually it makes it easier for me to keep the visualization of the grounding if the ground is accessible.

I do cast a circle - spherical, semipermeable membrane , no color, but luminous, membrane is densest at the perimeter of the circle and extends out with decreasing density for some distance which varies with the amount of energy invested.

I use a blue sphere around my car while driving, for protection. To which I might add that I have been rear-ended twice, both times when I needed money, both time resutling in about 4-500 dollars in cosmetic damage only. The "other guys" insurance paid and the rear end remains ugly, if you know what I mean. I avoid using blue for my circles!

When doing a quick working (like something suggested here) I just ground and center and channel energy into the working. My home is safe/sacred enough with it's altars, cleanings and continual workings/rituals.

Often, for quick work, especially outside, I also let my energy form the circle, even if there are several - it's just faster, and moving energy does form a 'circle' about one that can be felt and does ward off whatever.

But almost always when doing something more than quick, I do cast. This can be done in many ways, though. If I'm working with a very mixed group, some of whom may only be curious, then I will use a song (earth, the water the fire the air, or some such) as it can bring people together and help create that group mind that is so important to ritual while also moving energy into the space.

When working with the experienced (my coven, other covens) we always cast a formal circle. sometimes I use an athame, sometimes simply my hands. It involves (after grounding, so that I have energy to move) moving energy into an actual barrier/division that encloses the working. I use blue light. If someone else is casting, I move energy into their casting.

We often say that children and dogs can breach the circle without hurting it, because they are always in the magical place anyway (includes cats, too!). But adults should cut themselves in and out. Many people actually cut a door, I simply let myself move out of the sacred space and acknowledge the division, letting the energy close behind me.

In a meditation to meet the guardians of the quarters I saw a green glow of a very striking color shimmering under the sea. This is what I visualize to cast my personal circles: a line of that green water-light, about waist height, encircling me. If I really need to feel enclosed I draw the circle high above me and then pull it downward to the ground, tracing a cylinder.

My circle is definitely flexible, but if things go in and out of it it tends to fade away like mist. I notice I'm pickier than most of my friends about what it takes to keep a circle up--I find that my perception of the circle fades away, and as far as I'm concerned the circle does too, if we sit down in it and have a mundane chat or lecture. I can't maintain any sense of there being a circle present unless it is being used to contain sacredness. (I often find myself helping to 'dismiss' a circle that, as far as I'm concerned, has been gone for hours.)

In group working, I usually regard the circle as being composed mainly of the people, not the line surrounding them. At Mabon we goofed a bit in ritual design: all the core ritualists were sitting together, and when they went into the center to do the rite it left a large hole. Several people agreed with me that the energy tended to leak right out that hole, despite the cast circle around us. Similarly, if people leave it weakens the circle.

One group I worked with said that the circle would be destroyed if the person who cast it left: I haven't seen that happen in practice, as long as other people present maintain their sense of its reality.

I don't usually feel the need to cast a circle for protection, but I find them useful for focus, especially with groups: the act of casting the circle pulls people into the ritual and keeps them focused there, rather than letting their thoughts and attention wander off elsewhere. For solitary work I sometimes use them in the same way, but if I am imploring a Nature power I won't usually cast a circle since it divides me from what I'm trying to reach.

I did a totally unsuccessful circle rite to Hecate once that ended with a very pointed impression: "I am worshipped at crossroads in the open wind, not in a nice circle in a back bedroom."

Most Pagans of my acquaintance cast circles when performing rituals. I occasionally omit the circle, depending on the severity of the ritual being performed -- for example, when I respond to the requests in this newsgroup for healing energy or good thoughts, I simply sit back from the computer, ground and center, then get out a hurricane lamp I keep nearby for just this purpose and light it to use as a focus.

My circle is usually visualised as an ethereal bubble of force. If you've ever seen the shield effects from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" or "Deep Space Nine", then you have a pretty good idea. In fact, that is one of the reasons that I like the "Star Trek" special effect so much (aside from being a dyed-in-the-wool Trekkie); I've been using that visualisation for over twenty years.

I generate the seed of the shield within, then slowly expand it to cover the area involved. While I do so, I think of all the 'bad stuff' being swept ahead of the shield; it's a great way to prepare a space.

Colors are variable, depending on the work being performed. A standard defensive shield, such as that used during cleansings or teaching circles, is silvery in color. A healing circle will be shot through with streaks of rose; a high-power working will contain golden highlights. Of couse, if several types of workings are being performed, or if a single working is being done for multiple purposes, then my circle will begin to take on aspects of an explosion in a paint factory. :-)

My circle-shields are usually circular/spherical, although I have used odd shapes upon occasion. They are also flexible, but firm -- think of a soap bubble, but infinitely stronger.

They are transparent to light and sound (usually), but impenetrable to psychic forces --incoming, anyway; they are totally transparent to outgoing forces unless I decide otherwise. There are exceptions, of course; the cats come and go as they please. While physical objects may pass through the shield, I have had people report that there is a slight sensation of pressure when walking through it. One person likened it to walking into a wall of foam. I've also received reports of a very slight, sort of 'sub-psychic' (subliminal) "buzz" emanating from my circle-shields. No one, however, has described it as unpleasant.

In the vast majority of cases, my shields are fixed in position. If, for some reason, I need to leave the immediate area, the shield will remain where it was cast. I have, however, occasionally cast mobile shields, as when transporting a sick or injured person to a hospital.

Contacting A Friend

Contacting A Friend Cover SPELL FOR Contacting A FRIEND
Rowan Moonstone

This spell should be used to cause someone with whom you have lost contact to
contact you. It is not Manipulation so much as an astral call for contact when
you have no other way to reach them that you know of.

You will need:

White candle anointed w/ sandalwood oil
Sandalwood Incense
photo of the person
small glass of water

Light the white candle and the incense. Place the picture of the person on your
altar. Put 2 heaping tablespoons of salt in the palm of your right hand. Let a
small amount of salt trickle into the glass while making the sign of the equal
armed cross of the elements. Make this cross 3 times. Say " Call me" three
times as you do this. Then set the glass on the altar and say "Get in touch
with me, please." They should contact you by the time the water has evaporated
from the glass.

Cone Of Power

Cone Of Power Cover THE CONE OF POWER
author unknown

The cone of power is a vortex of magickal energy which is raised within a circle
by one or more witches working for the same goal.

One of the most common methods of power raising is dancing. Tradition dictates
that one dance deosil (clockwise) for spells of increase or attraction, and
widdershins (counterclockwise) for decreasing or banishing spells.

Start the dance at a steady pace using whatever music you wish as an
accompaniment. Then slowly begin to speed up the pace, continuing in this manner
until you can feel the mass of energy raised above you. Then, concentrating on
the goal, release the energy to go to where it is needed.

Other methods of raising power include drumming, chanting, and others...

Weaving Magic Webs Internet Identities And Teen Wiccan Subcultures

Weaving Magic Webs Internet Identities And Teen Wiccan Subcultures Cover

Book: Weaving Magic Webs Internet Identities And Teen Wiccan Subcultures by Julia Davies

Weaving magic Webs: Internet Identities and Teen wiccan subcultures. A consideration of one particular on line community and their web based interactions Dr. Julia Davies.

This paper outlines ongoing research looking at the use made of the Internet by many teenaged girls, who form networks and allegiances for discussion of a whole range of issues. In an examination of data taken from Wiccan web sites, message boards and diaries, it considers the role such sub-cultural activity on the Internet plays in the lives of participating girls. It is further argued that despite fears that activities involving new technologies are antisocial (Bauman, 2003) and can be isolating and dangerous, the Internet enriches many users’ lives and provides them with opportunities to extend their social experience both on and off line in positive ways.

The interface between Wiccan ideas, the use of the Internet and teenaged girls’ burgeoning interest in these is a relationship which attracts my attention; ways in which participating girls communicate with each other and present themselves, how they create a carefully defined sense of community are considered within a cultural studies framework. It is noted how these teenagers learn from each other and follow prescribed codes in order to remain group members. The public nature of the sometimes intimate exchanges exemplifies a common, ambiguous feature of interaction I have observed on the Internet and is also discussed along with what Wiccan ideas offer to this group of people.

Paganism And Christianity From 100 To 425 Ce

Paganism And Christianity From 100 To 425 Ce Cover

Book: Paganism And Christianity From 100 To 425 Ce by Ramsay Macmullen

MacMullen and Lane's Paganism and Christianity (100-425 C.E) presents readers with an eclectic array of writings touching every facet of religious life in the Late Roman world. These varied sources were penned by authors as conflicting as Eusebius and Julian and they deal with intriguing aspects of pagan cultus, pagan missionary activity, the Imperial Cult, the Persecutions and also provide pagan and Christian apologetic/theological literature. Overall, these pieces of literature paint a vibrant picture of religious life during this fascinating epoch in history and they convey something of the richness that the multiform belief systems of the Mediterranean world had to offer. Many of these sources are very difficult to find in English translation; and many of them can be quite expensive. So this sourcebook is indispensable, given that it is quite affordable, convenient and very useful.

Macmullen and Lane have done a service by presenting a treasure of texts revealing primarily the religious attitudes and experience of non-Christians during the formative years of Christianity. Christians today often assume that the language of faith in the early church was the exclusive domain of Christianity. The authors prove otherwise. The titles of some of the chapters demonstrate the range of experience and language of "pagans." For example: "Magic, Dreams, Astrology, Superstition," "Healing Shrines," "Hymns," "Cult Groups," "Holy Men and Women," and "Hermetism and Gnosticism." The sentiments contained in these texts are mirrored in early Christian churches, naturally, since these attitudes and languages were part of the religious atmosphere breathed by all peoples of the time. The unbiased reader is helped to easily appreciate the cultural and religious kinship between followers of Christ and those of either the Mysteries, philosophy, and mythologizing theologies such as those of the Gnostics.The last six chapters of the book are especially helpful in appreciating the dynamics of conversion and persecution. While I generally do not favor of history-of-religions approach to the study of historical phenomena, I make a strong exception regarding this book. I recommend that the reader use this book as a companion to Keith Hopkins' "A World Full of Gods."

Spell To Sell A Book

Spell To Sell A Book Cover

What you need:

1 yellow taper candle (pink will do to but yellow is best)
The pen you will use to write anything on the contents of the envelope or to address the envelope

When to do it:

During the waxing moon (from new moon to first quarter)

What you do:

Using the pen, inscribe the name of your book with an arrow on each side of it pointing to it into the candle (up and down). Figure out your lucky book number.
To do this, take the number of pages in your book and add the digits together (for example, if your book had 256 pages you would add 2+5+6). The outcome is your lucky book number. Light the candle and chant the following as many times as your lucky book number (example, if your lucky book number is 12 then you would chant it 12 times).

"My book,
name of book
, is the one I'm sending off
I've worked and slaved over it, please let my talent be enough.
Please let the publisher read it and love it
By the power of this candle I have lit
So Mote It Be!

Now drop a pinch of the cinnamon into the flame of the candle using your right hand and drop a pinch of the basil into the flame with your left (do both these movements in one quick movement). Hold your manuscript above the flame (careful not to burn it) and let it absorb the energy.

By the earth that is her body
And by the air that is her breath
And by the fire of her bright spirit,

May the joy of the Goddess live in our hearts
Merry meet, and merry part
And merry meet again.

Representation Of Paganism Wicca And Witchcraft In Modern Fictional Mass Media

Representation Of Paganism Wicca And Witchcraft In Modern Fictional Mass Media Cover

Book: Representation Of Paganism Wicca And Witchcraft In Modern Fictional Mass Media by Lisa Dinsmore

The aim of this dissertation was to examine Representations of Paganism by comparing recent fictional representations of Pagans and Wiccans against a "real life" model of Pagan and Wiccan practices and beliefs. A literature review focused on forming a model of Paganism, and looked at previous works which considered the representation of Paganism in fictional media. A crude form of content analysis was used to select an appropriate text for analysis. A semiotic analysis, ideological consideration, and a syntagmatic analysis of the narrative were all applied to the text, an episode called “Family” from the television series “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.” This gave an in-depth model of a fictional text featuring Witchcraft.

Paganism with particular reference to Witchcraft was portrayed positively in the text. It was discovered that the practice of magic had connotations of both power - particularly female autonomy -; and of sexuality -particularly homosexuality. Further analyses of a wide range of texts would need to be compared to the reallife model devised to give a more complete picture of the connotations behind the representations of Pagans, Wiccans and Witches.

This dissertations aims to look at representations of Paganism and in particular wicca and witchcraft in Modern Fictional Mass media. Semiotic analysis in particular and other media theories will be used to look at the representations and the portrayals compared to a model of current Pagan practices and beliefs – the "realist" perspective versus the "real".

Beyond Wicca Journey To The One The Elements

Beyond Wicca Journey To The One The Elements Cover

Book: Beyond Wicca Journey To The One The Elements by Anonymous

The Elements are one of the most important things we study in Wicca and they're no less important as we move on in the Journey to the One. This is presented here as a study for those who do not have too much Experience With the Elements and as a review for those who do.

First of all, what are the Elements? They're not the same as the Elementals which are spirit forms and definitely sometimes mischievous. There is an Elemental associated with each Element but does not have to be connected all the time if you don't want them to be. The ancient people held to the belief that the world was composed of four Elements: Air, Fire, Water and Earth. Everything could be put into one of those categories. We know now that there are actually multitudes of chemical elements but as purveyors of the ancient beliefs we also know that the Four Elements have been firmly established in the collective mind of the human race for many thousands of years and have served us well. We continue to make use of them in our daily lives. Every project we do will go better if we incorporate the Principles of the Elements. All the Magick we do will be more probable with proper use of the Elements.

So, this is something we need to make a very thorough study of, have an intimate association with and be able to draw upon their wonderful powers whenever we need to. The diagram to the lower right shows the Elements positioned on the logo for the Journey to the One. Read the document titled The Logo of the Journey for more detail on this.

As you depart
May there be peace between us
Now and forever. Blessed be.
She raises her athame to the sky and touches it to the earth, then opens her arms and says,

The circle is open, but unbroken,
May the peace of the Goddess
Go in your hearts,
Mercy meet, and merry part.
And merry meet again. Blessed be.

To watching winds we wish fair traveling;
To sleepless dead sweet rest we send;
Gods and Goddesses, go with praises --
See: the circle is severed thus. [cut with sword at east]

Green Magic The Sacred Connection To Nature

Green Magic The Sacred Connection To Nature Cover

Book: Green Magic The Sacred Connection To Nature by Ann Moura

Practice a craft grounded in the powers of Nature, the wildwood magic of the Elementals, of Mother Earth and the Horned God. Kin to star and stone, water and wind, the practitioner of green magic respects the powers and spirits of Nature, and knows how to work with their energies to accomplish magical goals.

Green magic is the foundation of Modern Witchcraft, according to author Ann Moura, a descendent of a long line of maternal witches. It comes from the ancient pagans, who relied on the natural world--using herbs, faeries, wind, rain, and fire--to create spells, potions, and healing teas. "The Green Witch is a Natural Witch, a Hereditary Witch, a Kitchen Witch, a Cottage Witch, a Hedge Witch ... and generally a Solitary Witch," she explains, hoping to demystify this sacred, yet highly accessible craft. In her previous books (among them Green Witchcraft and Green Witchcraft III) Moura offers manuals devoted to mastering specific spells, such as alter-making and potions. In Green Magic she takes a more philosophical approach, delving into the psychology, ethics, and traditions of this earth-based craft. For instance, she offers a section on "transference magic," which warns practitioners to keep close tabs on the unconscious mind so as not to subconsciously transfer negative energy to other people when trying to cast goodwill spells. Those who need basic instruction will find some practical advice here, such as the use of "ritual jewelry" and making magical herbal teas, but mostly this stands out as the deeper discussion that advanced witches yearn for once they pass Green Witchcraft 101.

This comprehensive guide to the Green Craft focuses specifically on the Magical Practices covered in the three volumes of Green WitchcraftŠ²Š‚”and goes even further, presenting information not found in any other book. Become attuned to Nature and to your own magical power with instructions on:

- How to create and cast spells
- The difference between a spell's purpose and its goal
- How to move energy with gestures
- Stages of energy flow
- Types of spells within the Green tradition
- Psychology of Green magic
- How to access the energies within natural objects

In this installment of the Green Tradition, Ann Moura explores energy working. While this may seem very a general topic, Ms. Moura has tied this all in with her own tradition of Green WitchCraft.

All the components of working magic are here, and tradition or no, they can be applied across the board in any tradition where the individual wants to work magic. This reads as a basic 101 to a 202 primer on working with energy, energy manipulation, components of spell working and all the ritual and tools associated with this.

I was pleased to see someone finally approach magic as the energy work it is and work through the basics without the mumbo jumbo. Her section on energy is good, and her discussion on purpose and method will spark some conversations.

This is a good companion to her previous books, and is a good working primer on spellcasting and energy working. If you found her other books on her Green WitchCraft path your path, then this is a good continuation of that work.

Circle Of Fire Protection Spell

Circle Of Fire Protection Spell Cover CIRCLE OF FIRE - PROTECTION

Have you ever been momentarily overwhelmed by a
feeling of hopelessness? Heed the warning and look
to your enemies. A strong possibility exists that
you have been ill-wished, "overlooked" as the
elders would say. Witches are commonly blamed for
casting evil spells, but in truth very few indeed
care to risk a Three-Fold Return. This conviction
that a curse sent forth will return thrice to haunt
you is a Doctrine bred in the bone and one as old
as the craft itself.

Keep in mind that psychic attack is often the work
of an amateur with latent power enlivened by envy
or rage. Hate is a strong motivation and a sharp
weapon. However, a malevolent thrust from the mind
of a novice is over in a flash. An untrained will
cannot sustain the proper degree of concentration
needed to do real harm. Nonetheless, it is only
wise to identify the perpetrator and protect
yourself from further negativity.

Visit the ocean (or any free-flowing body of water)
to fortify confidence with an ancient Irish pagan

I bind to myself this day
The swiftness of the wind,
The power of the sea,
The hardness of the rocks,
The endurance of the earth.

Cense the air of your home to purify the space and
comfort the spirit under siege. Frankincense and
myrrh are incenses notable for driving away the
forces of evil intent.

Of all the earth's herbal gifts, none affords more
effective Protection than rue, the "herb of grace".
Hang a fresh bunch over your doorway and carry a
dried sprig to shield against harm from the ill-

One of the simplest means to defeat psychic attack
is the Circle of Fire.

In privacy and Complete darkness, light a candle.
Take a deep breath and stand as tall as you can.
Face east and raise the candle high above your head
for a moment. Bring the flame down to eye-level and
hold it there while you turn slowly deosil three
times. Concentrate your full attention on the blue
of the flame as you rotate in place. Raising the
candle high again, salute the east as you complete
the final circle. This erects a barrier through
which no evil thought can pass.

A Circle Of Protection And Love

A Circle Of Protection And Love Cover

The Mother's Cloak - An Invocation

A Circle of Protection and Love

The Mother wraps Her cloak around us.

Thus we are protected.

The Mother takes the girdle from Her waist,

and wraps it around us.

Thus we are held within Her passion for Her consort.

Thus we are held within Her passion for us.

Thus we are held within Her Passion for Herself.

Around us the Mother lets down Her hair -

blond like beach sand,

dark like earth and the empty far readhes of space.

She lets Her hair down around us,

that we may nestle within it like children

playing, hidden within the bowers of a weeping willow.

Her arms encircle us in her love.

She pulls from Her body Joyfire,

Joyfire whose name is God, Our Father,

and She wraps this circle of joy around us.

Around us are the elements of life that are Herself in truth-

by these we are protected, calmed,

given peace and joy.

Within this circle we share space with the animal peopple,

with the land, and the land of spirits,

within the weaving of all the Cosmos.


This invocation is particularly wonderful if used when casting a circle, and/or before any magic or ritual. It can also be used in times of deep stress, worry, or fear.
