Day 3 of 44 days of Witchery Challenge

Day 3.. Witchy tools: Athame

The Athame, is the Black Handled Knife used to cut the many things for the circle such as the pentagrams in the quarters and the circle. It should be mentioned that the Athame, does not really need to be a black handled knife. It’s a common opinion that the Athame, should suit the person who uses it. One of its uses is to invoke things that are wanted, and banish things that are unwanted or un-needed in the circle. The Athame, is considered to be an extension of oneself”. This includes will, spirit, thought, emotion and manifestation as well. The Athame, is never used for cutting things like meat, thread, plants or anything else considered a solid object on this plane. It’s believed that use of this blade for self defense will make it null and void for any magickal use again.

Day 2 of 44 days of Witchery Challenge

Day 2-A myth or tale from Folklore !

I have always like the story of Persephone and her dual life! I can only imagine how hard it would be to taken from my family.
One of my favorite interpretations of the different Goddess myths is from author P.C Cast . The Goddess Summoning Series!

 

Greek Goddess Persephone

Innocent Maiden and Queen of the Underworld
The Greek goddess Persephone represents both the youthful, maiden aspect (innocent and joyous) as well as the more womanly self who, innocence lost and less attached to her parents, can begin to make healthy decisions for herself.

Carefree and innocent, a young girl-child just approaching adolescence, Persephone was the daughter of Demeter and Zeus. While gathering flowers, she was abducted by Hades and taken to the Underworld to become his queen.

Although Persephone’s beloved mother Demeter eventually secured her release, Persephone managed to insure that she could “have it all”!

Persephone spent part of the year above ground with her mother but returned to her husband each winter (for she had grown rather fond of him and enjoyed her role as Queen of the Underworld). Spring represents the return of the eternally youthful Persephone to our world each year.

The Greek goddess Persephone was also known in her youth as the goddess Kore (or Cora), whose counterpart in mythology is the Roman goddess Prosperina.

In Greek mythology the goddess Persephone is thought to be the goddess of the soul, the possessor of the psyche’s dark, unseen wisdom. But she is brings us all the bright green growth of spring . . . and all the hope that it brings.

Day 1 of 44 days of Witchery challenge !

What’s your witchy background?

My witchy background is all my own! No one in my family is a witch. Growing up my family was not really religious at all. We did not spend our Sundays at church like most families did in our area, we just stayed home. I always felt at home outside in nature or with animals.

So I feel like I am a eclectic kitchen witch. I pull from many forms of Wicca and witchcraft. I enjoy working with herbs in my kitchen, growing a garden and just be outdoors under the sunlight or moonlight.

I also pull on my Celtic roots to bond with Celtic goddesses and gods.

The sad part is where I live I have to hide my witchy self because the community I live is a very religious Bible Belt area. Maybe someday people will not be so mean and judgemental.
