A Witches Call

Here is a piece that has been floating around. It is a beginning of a working or ritual.

From North to East we Dance around
To South and West we call to sound
The powers from below and above
To surround

With horns in the Air
And thorns in our hair,
With stones we throw
And bones we wear
In the circles and crossroads
Is the witness we bear
Of Gods, Spirits, and Ancestors
We, of the Twisting Yew,
Beseech thee to share
Clarity and power
In this hour

A Justice Spell

When I originally wrote this two years ago, I was picturing The
Morrigan. Today in the middle of writing a ritual for Ostara this
weekend, She made Her presence known. So I share will share this today.
This is to be spoken over your ingredients, after your work is
assembled, or at anytime during your work that your find it appropriate
to say. Enjoy!

Give me justice
Or give me war
The Great Destroyer I stand before
Petition in hand
This injury be from me free
If justice can not be scored
I look to Me
I look to war
Return to the offender
Their damage
Eye for an eye
Blood for blood
Turn around the ignorance
Mirror back the intolerance

May your roots never rot, and your growing never stop.

Review: Witch Unleashed Untamed Unapologetic

Witch Unleashed Untamed Unapologeyic by Lisa Lister, was one of a few books I picked up last week. With in the first few pages, I almost put the book down. You may actually put it down. It is not meant for everyone. That is ok.

Over all the book is geared towards beginner woman witches. It talks a lot about Patriarchy and the damage it has done to woman over the centuries. The book also tells you to question everything including this book. It is clearly a feminist book.

Once you get past all of if it does not resonate with you, the books provides some basic information. The information is not anything new or not found elsewhere. It goes over the Sabbats, some herb, stone, and color correspondences, different way of divination, and so forth.

The positive thing in this book is that it highly encourages you to listen to yourself, to feel yourself, to know yourself. It also provides some path working exercises through out the book. The book is more of a guide or call to do your own research and developer your own path.

So if you are looking for an in-depth how to, this book may not be for you. However if you are looking for something with a different flavor, you might find this book interesting.

‘Till we next meet again; May your Roots never rot, and your growing never stop.

Protection Spell

dpp_6366 (2)

For this past full moon one of our members had a request for a protection magick. This is a slight variant on what we created for the request. Full moon energy was used to boost the potency. The ingredients used are:

  • Alligator Tooth
  • One to three Sea Shells with points preferably
  • Selected herbs. ( We used Bay Leaf , and Ground Clove.)
  • Cascarilla powder
  • Black Candle

Feel free to add anything else you think you need, or what you know works for you. During the speel you will be placing the shells and gator tooth will be placed around a house or property. You will also Fill the gator tooth herbs and cascarilla powder and seal it with wax from the black candle.

When you are ready to start the spell gather the filled and sealed tooth, shells and candle to where you will be working. Cast your circle if desired.

Light the candle, and the speak the spell below:

To the Gods who work with and watch over person/persons named. We call to you tonight! Glorious are you in whom We walk with! Great are you in whom We give our Love to! Hear us tonight, under this full Moon whose strength is bright. Bless this spell for protection of this house,
person/persons named, their family, and their possessions from the ill intentions, and actions of those who wish to harm and to bring harm here. 

  We call to the creatures of the sea who have passed and left these houses that have points and spikes, bless these vessels times three! ( present shells to all directions, and place in the predesignated spots) We call to Gator whose teeth and claws protect their territory bless this vessel! ( present to all directions, and then place in the predesignated spot.)” 

We you feel ready open the circle if you cast one. If it is safe leave the candle burn to its completion. If it is not, light the candle daily until it is done.

 ‘Till we next meet again; May your Roots never rot, and your growing never stop.

Leaving the Past

This is a poem spell to keep the pain of the past in the past.


On the outside looking in

the Hell of Past is continuing

I see what I’ve been

Where I am going

I’ve left you within

The circle of flames

burnt to a sin

You are stretched across

a shallow grave

Ashes blowing in the wind


No more will you be tormenting

no more will you leave me hurting

No more will you be absorbing

The Chaos

The confusion

The identity


I have bound and burned

the skin you used to cut

the heart you used to eat

the mind you used to fuck


The pain

The fire

The rebirth

Return to earth

the control I gave

the feelings of you

I forsake!

within these words

within myself

Strenght I take!

So mote it Be!

Spell Bottle

Hail everyone,

Today I would like to talk about making a Spell bottle, for this is a good time to buy containers. Classic style calls for glass or earthenware containers, those are my preference. However, I am adaptable when I need to be, which lead me to this discovery a while back.  While out doing basic needs shopping I spotted these empty Christmas balls that are made to be filled. Satori! Here sits the modern spell bottle. Maybe I was just in a dark corner where the Internet did not reach me with this wonderous announcement, or the email spam guard kicked the memo into the trash box. Until that moment I was ignorantly in the dark about these wondrous new inventions. So I gathered up a small number of them.


When I got I home I rounded up all the different ingredients I might need to make my first one.  At this time in my life, I was having a creative block. So I wanted to create a spell bottle that removed the block or brought inspiration into my home. I had already made a traditional witches bottle previously.

I set aside some rosemary, allspice, bay leaf, and some stones that called out to be included. I also put some random decorative items in as well, they are for camouflage. Once I filled the bottles, I used some hot glue to seal the top.  When it was ready to be hung, I chanted over it, to it,  and through it.

You may also paint the outside with sigils, prayers, or pictures. The ability to direct a spell at a particular person is also inherent in with these containers. Just place a photo of the person you wish to direct your spell towards. A reminder, any time you practice magick there is always a give and a take. Make sure you understand and are willing to accept that. With that said, the possibilities are as endless as your mind and your needs. Imagine a Yule tree or Christmas tree all decorated with these for a specific intent!

Until Next time, May your Roots never rot, and May your growing never stop.





Prayer Beads


Growing up in America, specifically a Roman Catholic dominated area, I was exposed to rosaries. I still have the one gifted to me for my first holy communion. It is still in the white purse with the never opened prayer book and a saint card, sitting in the attic of my childhood home. My parents where paper Catholics as adults and they attempted to pass Catholicism onto myself and my sister.  I never took to it, though I do use some of the practices, like candle burning, incense, and now prayer beads.  Yes, I know these are all common to a lot of religions not just the domain of Catholicism.

It took many years to be comfortable with prayer beads. I always associated it with being Catholic, not pagan. After reading and learning about history and different religions I came to understand that it is another practice widely used in many religions.

Why would a Pagan, or a Witch use prayer beads? My answer is to create the right atmosphere for your mind to practice magik, receive messages, or to calm your mind. Using a set of prayer beads to put your mind on magik is easy. Before you do any work, grab your prayer beads get comfortable. Stat with holding a bead, then thank each deity, spirit, entity that you work with. If you only have one that you work with, start by thanking that diety. you can then move on to naming all the epithets they may have, listing accomplishments they have, or thank them for the gifts they have given you.

If you have several ingredients in a spell, you may also use your prayer beads to focus on the aspect of each of the ingredients needed for your work. For example, a love spell is what you are going to do today and you are using red candles, rose petals, jasmine incense. You may use just four beads of your prayer beads to focus on each ingredient. Pray to each ingredient, seeing each, feeling each becoming that ingredient for the time period spent holding a bead.  Some people may find this redundant, as they do this already when they do their work. That is ok. Others may find this as a useful key to unlocking greater efficacy of personal work.

How does one make prayer beads? The method is easy.

1. Decide on the number of beads in a set.

2. Decide on the number of sets.

3. Acquire beads and material to string them together.

The colors and types of beads may also be a consideration. In the picture at the beginning of this article is my homemade prayer beads. I chose to keep the traditional number of 5 sets for a rosary, however, I use seven beads and not ten normally used.  The skulls where a bead I liked and I found hematite separator beads to go in between the sets of skull beads. I could not find a suitable metal pendant and had to make my own using a bottle cap. The Santa Muerte pendant was ordered from Frater Setnakh.
Prayer bead may be as simple as a strand of beads, they do not need to emulate any other template. The most important thing is to make it work for you.

Until Next Time,

May your Roots never rot, and May your growing never stop.







The Healing Bind

The Healing Bind

On the outside looking in
The hell of the past is continuing
I see where I’ve been
Where I am going
I’ve left you within
The circle of flames
Burnt to a sin
You are stretched across
A shallow grave
Ashes blowing in the wind

No more will you be tormenting
No more will you be hurting
No more will you be absorbing
The Chaos
The Confusion
The Identity

I have bound and burned
The skin you used to cut
The heart you used to eat
The mind you used to fuck

The pain, the fire, the rebirth,
Return to Earth
The control I gave
The feeling of you
I forsake
Within these words
Within myself
Strength I take

So mote it be!
