Beware of Mistakes in Casting a Circle

Casting Circle
Casting Circle

“Can I make a big mistake in Casting a Circle?” my friend, Veronica, asked.

“It is important to focus on three vital details,” I replied.

When you Cast a Circle you want to:

  • Keep Things Out—They Steal Your Energy
  • Keep Energy In
  • Dismiss the Elementals—or They Cause Havoc
  1. Keep Things Out—They Steal Your Energy

If you don’t Cast Your Circle properly, nearby entities can steal valuable energy you have raised. It gets worse: Such entities can cause your spell or ritual to fall flat.

Let’s say you do a Prosperity Spell. But such entities leached your valuable energy. Then, your Prosperity Spell will collapse, due to no power behind it.

  1. Keep Energy In

A properly cast Circle keeps your energy all in one place. When you raise energy, you want it to build—not dissipate into the surrounding landscape. Your Circle helps you magnify such energy.

  1. Dismiss the Elementals—or They Cause Havoc

Elementals can cause havoc on your life if not dismissed. I have heard of problems ranging from electrical issues, plumbing problems to scary incidences of fires breaking out in one’s home.

Warning: ALWAYS dismiss an entity once it has completed its function.

 Finally, closing your circle is truly important.

Just follow the appropriate steps but do them in reverse.

If you follow these guidelines, you will be one step closer to enhancing your life and making your dreams come true.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Wiccans Overcome Oppression

As a Wiccan, are you feeling oppressed?

Do you feel comfortable to wear a pentacle openly?

A reader asked me a question recently: How do you get a girl to like you if you’re a witch?

I had a thought: Why does it have to be a big deal about being a witch? Why is this question phrased in this way?

My second thought was: The question arrives with “if you’re a witch” because many cultures around the world oppress Wiccans.

The word oppression relates to “prolonged cruel or unjust treatment or control.”

Let’s look at that detail control. A horrible form of control is related to when other people seem to get into your mind and make you doubt your feelings and worth.

Before we go further, here is my answer to that person’s question:

How do you get a girl to like you if you’re a witch?

“Your question brings up a number of subtopics.

I’ll work with a couple of ideas.

     a) How do you get anyone to like you if they might be repelled by a false idea?

You may have heard of the idea “be yourself.” Which self are we talking about? The self that has bad breath and a hangover on a Saturday morning? Or the self that you’re proud of. The one that is a good listener. Someone who is respectful, kind and compassionate. The self that is open to learning new ideas and approaches—with each day as a fresh opportunity to grow, learn and be kind.

I’m suggesting that you first express your best self. Be a good listener. Be kind, compassionate and friendly. Show a genuine smile at certain moments. These elements are attractive.

I have a friend who asked this question: “If you deal with clinical depression symptoms, do you tell someone that on the first date?” His answer is no. Because the person hasn’t experienced your good points, and they have no investment in your friendship yet.

When you feel it is appropriate, you might share some part of your spiritual path. Still, be careful because there is a lot of false information about witches in popular culture.

     b) How does one use magick to make oneself attractive?

First, my Wiccan elders have emphasized that using magick on anyone without their consent is Wrong—do NOT do it.

However, you can use magick on yourself to remove blocks. You might have endured parental neglect or maybe you suffered heartrending rejection. Therefore, you could do a spell to enhance your personal strength. To be a good friend, you need to have the strength to be a good listener and to share your heart. That’s right—friendship requires us to be strong enough to be vulnerable with the right person.

Prayer for Strength

Lord of the Sun grant me your strength and wisdom
to hear what is not said,
and to see what is
 not shown
for my heart is alone.
May I feel your strength from above
so I grow and attract life giving love.

May this prayer empower you.”

*  *  *  *  *  *

As we close this conversation here, I want to emphasize that oppression happens when people are afraid of something or don’t understand something.

Yes—plenty of people retain false ideas about Wicca due to popular culture and to some religious leaders actively spreading false information.

However, we can get to know people one at a time. When they know us as a warm, kind, friendly person, they may be more open to learning who we, Wiccans, are.

Most importantly, stay vigilant about what’s in your own mind.

This reminds me of a quote:

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. – Arthur Schopenhauer

Stay strong,
Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Wiccans and Psychic and Spiritual Protection?

A reader asked me: What are some of the quickest, easiest ways for psychic & spiritual protection?

I’ll share three different methods you can use to protect yourself. (There are many possible methods of protection.)

Protection Method #1: Use a Sigil

Sigils are magickal symbols that hold an intention. You create a sigil by using the following simple process. First, write out your desire on a scratch piece of paper; you can use a single word or a phrase.

Examples of Phrases Related to Protection:

· Protect me through the night

· Protect me from energy vampires

To keep this example simple and clear, I’ll just use the word “success.” Cross off all of the repeated letters in Success. You end up with S, U, C, and E. (You want only one of each letter that appears in the word.) Next, scramble the letters, getting S, E, U, and C (for example). Now comes the fun part: Combine the letters together in an image.

Protection Method #2: Wear a Protection Necklace

Wear a necklace of hematite and amethyst. The hematite grounds you, and the amethyst turns all energy into white light.

Protection Method #3: Take a Ritual Bath

Ritual bathing can be a great way to get rid of the nasties that may cling onto your aura. Bless and consecrate your soap and shampoo. Set these aside for use only during your ritual baths.

How to make a sachet with cleansing herbs for a bath:

Use a stocking or cotton cloth, and place inside selected cleansing herbs. The total amount of all herbs will be one tablespoon.

If you use a cotton cloth, gather the corners and tie them with a string. Make sure the sachet is closed and secure. This keeps the herbs from clogging your drain.

Place your sachet in the bath water then sprinkle in some sea salt and let steep for 5 or so minutes. Then enjoy.

May these three protection methods bring you comfort.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Wiccans “Fine-Tune” Their Intuition

“How can I practice tuning my intuition?” one of my readers asked. “Are there any spells that can help me become a little more ‘fine-tuned’ to other people’s intent, lies, etc.?”

So much is going on in this question.

First, what is intuition, really? Some definitions of intuition emphasize: “the ability when … one knows or considers [true] from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.”

Researcher Gerd Gigerenzer suggests that intuition is “data that has not risen to the conscious level.”

When I talk with fellow Wiccans, I have mentioned, “There is a difference between intuition and knowing.” The way I define knowing is: Certainty that arises from hearing the ‘voice’ of the God and Goddess. I’ve been grateful to hear the voice of the Goddess—on a number of occasions. For example, one time, I had a knowing to hold back and avoid entering a traffic intersection. That knowing saved my life because another car careened through the intersection at great speed. It surely would have smashed my car on the driver’s side, killing me.

Next, we look at “fine-tuning intuition.” I suggest that this is about getting distractions out of the way so we can clearly connect with intuition.

Author Gavin de Becker (The Gift of Fear) points out that we naturally can use our gut instincts to protect ourselves. The problem arises when we let other voices (like when someone doesn’t want to be embarrassed) to block out the voice of intuition (or gut instincts).

So, here is a Spell for Getting Distractions Out of the Way of Your Intuition.

Intuition Spell

What you will need:

  • 1 blue candle
  • Ritual tools
  • Dragon’s blood incense
  • Cakes and wine
  • Offering dishes
  • Dragon’s blood oil

 

Cast Circle in the usual manner.

Time to dress your candle: This means that you take the oil and rub it onto the candle from wick to the base of the candle.

Place the candle in holder.

As you light the candle say:

Blue candle of mine,
It is now your time.
My intuition grows as you melt away,
My intuition is here,
My intuition is clear, and now will stay.
Whispers I hear,
Intuition is near.
Guide me true.
Without distraction,
I know you.

Sit and expand your senses. Sense the whispers of intuition.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony.

Close the Circle.

May this Intuition Spell help you walk your best path.

Blessings upon your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Wiccans Asking the ALL For Change

 

Candle

“I can’t take this, anymore!” Rachael said.

“I hear you—” I responded.

“It’s all wrong now. I’m boxed in. I just want to feel that I have some freedom. Freedom to choose.”

“Have you asked the ALL for help?” I suggested.

Simply put, Rachael was stuck. She felt she had no where to go in her current situation. So here is a simple spell to gain the help of the ALL.

Read over the spell carefully several times before you do it.

What you’ll need:

  • One small white candle (it needs to be small, so you can burn it out in one sitting)
  • Candle holder
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Robe
  • Perfume (frankincense preferably)
  • Cakes and wine/juice (This can be as simple as some cookies and juice)
  • Offering dish (you will need one)
  • Sea salt
  • Small table (something to put your candle and cakes and wine/juice on)
  • Small jar
  • Small bowl of purified water
  • Small bowl of sea salt
  • Purified or spring water
  • Lighter or matches

What to do:

Start by thoroughly crushing the garlic and put it into a small jar of your olive oil. Set aside the mixture in a dark place (like a closet) for nine days.

When your oil is done do the following.

Take a ritual bath:

On a full or waxing moon. First bathe to wash all of the physical dirt from your body. Then draw a new bath and put three tablespoons of sea salt into the water. Soak in the water and think of all the negative energy being absorbed by the salt water. Breathe in and out deeply. Relax… Take your time.

Use a clean towel to dry off. Put on a clean robe.

Next, go to your room and clear a space and place your small simple table (this will be your altar) in the center. Place the candle in the middle of the altar. Additionally, set up your small water bowl, sea salt bowl, and food and drink on either the side of the candle.

Disrobe and sit in front of the altar.

Submerge your index fingertip in the bowl of water and say:

I cleanse and consecrate thee, Water, that you are pure and clean.

Then place your index fingertip into the bowl of salt and say:

I cleanse and consecrate thee, Salt, that you are pure and clean.

Put three pinches of the blessed sea salt into the bowl of water and stir clockwise (using your index finger).

Sprinkle (asperge) the bottle of perfume with the holy water (the salt water you just made) onto the candle and say:

I cleanse and consecrate thee, Perfume, that you are pure and clean.

Asperge the candle with the holy water and say:

I cleanse and consecrate thee, Candle, that you are pure and clean.

Spray some of the holy perfume onto you and breathe it in deeply. Breathe in and out three times as you clear your mind. Take your time…

Time to dress your candle: This means that you take the garlic oil and rub it onto the candle from wick to the base of the candle. Carve the word “freedom” on the candle and place in the candle holder.

Light the candle and say:

I ask you,

Who is the lightness and darkness,

Who is the powers of the winds,

Who is the powers of the seas,

Who is the powers of the mountains,

Who is the powers of the flame within.

Who is powers all life and love.

And who is the source of all things,

The Great and powerful ALL,

I ask you for change and freedom for the good of all!

As I so will, So mote it be!

 

As the candle burns, think of all the freedom you now have as this Spell manifests what you desire.

Again, take your time…

Finally, set your cakes and wine/juice in front of you. Hold your dominant hand over them and say:

I bless this food and drink that it will keep me strong.

Place each of some of the food and drink into the offering dishes saying:

To the ALL!

You can now partake of the food and drink.

Let the candle burn itself completely out. (Warning: Never leave a burning candle unattended.)

Clean up and enjoy the rewards of your efforts.


May this Spell bring you many blessings.

Blessed Be,

Moonwater

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

When the Tarot Gives You a Bad Reading — What You Can Do

“So, I put the Tarot spread down, and then I caught my breath,” one of my Wiccan elders told me.

“Then what happened?” I asked.

“I knew that it was going to be tough to express what the cards were saying to my friend,” my Wiccan elder said.

I understood the situation. She was going to have to tell her friend something that she did not want to hear.

A significant number of people are concerned about having to face a “bad reading.” It’s tough enough to talk about it. It can be even harder to face a tough Tarot reading that applies to you.

Here are three steps to help you work through the dark waters of bad news.

  1. Postpone Being Upset by Doing a Meditation

Go into meditation and ask for Goddess’s Viewpoint on the matter. You may be surprised! Some events that look bad at first glance are actually good news.

I have a friend who taught college students. She worked at many different colleges to make ends meet. One day she was doing a reading and saw that she would stop teaching college students. She was devastated.

Then, she did a meditation and asked the Goddess what to do …

  1. Do Another Spread the Next Day

She asked the question “If I do _____, what is the outcome?” When she read the answer, she was puzzled. It gave her the same answer as the day before.

So, she repeated the step of meditation to ask for guidance and to see the situation clearly.

She also talked with her Wiccan Elders and other trustworthy people.

  1. Take Positive Action and Add Meditation

The next day she did what she hoped was a positive action related to her situation. She signed up for a Toastmasters group (a group where people practice public speaking)—based on a vague notion that she might become a life coach and giving speeches would help her find clients.

She now says that she gets to work with clients who really want her help—which is quite different from teaching required college classes. She is now free of half-hearted efforts from a significant number of college students. (She hated giving out bad grades.)

So, the “Bad News” that she thought she had received turned out to be a blessing to help her make a transition into what she was meant to do.

Doing meditation sessions and asking for Goddess’s viewpoint can really open up possibilities in your life. Not all endings are bad—although they might include pain at first.

May these three steps help you as you discover your next chapter of life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Wiccans Reverse a Curse or Hex

 

“I’m concerned about curses. How can I protect myself?” one of my readers asked.

Here’s an easy Hex-breaking Candle Spell.

What you will need:

  • One black chime candle
  • One brown chime candle
  • One white chime candle
  • Sea salt
  • A picture of yourself
  • Cookie sheet or pan
  • Tinfoil

What to do:

Cover the cookie sheet with your tinfoil.

Start at the middle of the pan, and pour a line of salt, going from left to right.

Place your picture on the right end of your salt line.

Make a circle around your picture by pouring salt to create that circle. Make sure the salt-circle connects to the salt-line you previously made.

Set the black candle on the left side, at the starting end of the salt-line.

Place the brown candle in the middle of the line, and finally set the white candle on the end of the line, next to your picture.

Think of all the stuff that has been going wrong in your life. Really get your emotions into it. Once you have worked yourself up, light the black candle. Next, light the brown candle. Imagine all the muck draining away from your life.

It’s important to breathe deeply, as you focus on the bad stuff leaving your life for good. Take your time.

Once you have envisioned the muck completely vanishing from your life, light the white candle.

You can meditate on the good things you would like to see manifest in your life.

IMPORTANT: Let all the candles burn themselves completely out. And make sure to avoid leaving a burning candle unattended.

May this Hex-breaking Candle Spell help you move forward in your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
