Witches Rune Chant


WITCHES RUNE
Darksome night and shining moon
Hearken to the Witches Rune.
East then South, West then North
Hear! Come! I call thee forth!
By all the powers of land and sea
Be obedient unto me.
Wand, penticle, and thy Sword
Hearken ye unto my word.
Cords and censer, scourge and knife
Waken all ye into life.
Powers of the Witches blade
Come ye as the charge is made.
Queen of heaven, Queen of hell
Send your aid unto the spell.
Horned Hunter of the night
Work my will by magick right.
By the powers of land and sea
As do I say “So mote it be.”
By all the might of moon and sun
As I do will, it shall be done!

Spells and Magickal Etiquette


This is only a guide and does not express the opinions of all Wiccans and Pagans. Use this list and add more to it if you desire.

* Remember the Wiccan Rede . . . “Do as you will, and harm none.”.

* Never do magick or a spell that seeks to control anyone else. That includes spells you think are for their own good. Never try to dominate another through magick. This rule makes loves spells controversial.

* Only cast a spell for another person if they have asked you to do so. Then ONLY do the exact spell that they have asked for…do not add to or take away from what they have specified.

* There are exceptions to every rule for example, animals, the sick and elderly, minors, physically disabled or other persons who are under your care. Always check carefully to make sure you’re magick is within the Divine will.

* Think all magick through thoroughly. Try NOT to do magick that affects a whole community (i.e. weather magick). Weather magick will change the natural pattern . . . You could be responsible for far-off droughts or floods. Which in turn affects farmers and their crops and livestock. Which directly affects their income.

* Be respectful to your magick. Always perform your spells in places where you can remain focused and uninterrupted.

* Clean up your magickal/sacred space before you begin. Use your besom and/or vaccum, dust, consecrate your tools, when wiping things down use salt water for purification, censor or walk the area with a incense stick or cone.

*Clean up your magickal/sacred space residue. Release the  elements and deities, thank them or show appreciation for their presence, erase signs and symbols, and open the circle before you leave.

*Try not to leave your circle during rituals and spell casting but if you must, ALWAYS cut a door/opening with your wand, athame or index finger of your power hand.

 

Knot/Cord Magick…Why Isn’t It As Popular As Candle and Incense Magick


Knot magick also known as cord magick,  is no less effective than any other form of magick. So why isn’t it used as often?Many Witches/Wiccans have never even heard of it.

Knot magick is a form of spell work that is less well-known than some others, but is no less powerful.

The only material you need to perform a knot spell is a cord of some kind. Anything will do, but make sure it is long enough to hold all your knots and the material of the cord should be natural. Craft shops are great sources for lengths of cord made from silk, cotton, hemp, leather, wool or even ribbon. Choose a colour to match the intention of the spell.

You can use your cord as-is, but to add more of your personal energy to the spell, you can also braid it before working the knots. Obviously, the material needs to be fairly thin or the resulting cord will be too thick to hold the knots. You can combine colors too, to more finely tune the color energy to your needs. Make sure you have a sufficient length of material, as it will shorten up considerably when braided. Focus on your purpose as you braid your cord.

Once you have your cord ready, it’s time to make the spell. Any purpose can be used with cord magick, but spells that involve binding are more appropriate. I don’t mean binding of another person necessarily, but any kind of ‘tying up’ or ‘holding fast’. Some examples might be: spells to eliminate bad habits, to help keep emotions in check, to bind up an illness, or to secure a new job.

A typical or traditional knot spell has nine knots, and the words spoken are shown below. You concentrate and focus your energy on your purpose, and repeat each line as you tie each knot. But you could also choose a number of knots to match your purpose (numerologically speaking), and you can recite your own words as well.

Your magick will continue to work as long as the knots are tied. Once your goal has manifested itself, you should dispose of the cord without untying the knots. Burning or burying it are two options, so long as your cord is made from natural materials. You could also just keep the knotted cord tucked safely away.

Traditional Nine Knot Spell
By the knot of one, the spell’s begun
By the knot of two, I make it true
By the knot of three, so mote it be
By the knot of four, the open door
By the knot of five, the spell’s alive
By the knot of six, the spell is fixed
By the knot of seven, the earth and heaven
By the knot of eight, the stroke of fate
By the knot of nine, the thing is mine
