Keys are very old tools used in magic, they can be used for both divination and ritual purposes, they symbolise the power to change reality and open the doors of the other realms. Usually an old key is used by a Witch to travel through realms and seek the guidance of higher and wiser entities.
Skeleton Keys hold quite a lot of mystique. They are connected with gateways and portals, doorways to the unknown, knowledge, mysteries, powers, initiations, new ways, forbidden things and answers to curious questions. They are often associated with specific deities or spiritual figures, and are often used as part of charms or other magical tools.
Keys represent knowledge and access, and it’s important to note that they can both open and lock doors. Possessing a key is both about gaining access and setting boundaries.
Hecate, a goddess often described as the Queen of the Witches, is a deity associated with gate keeping and keys, she holds the keys that allow passage into the spiritual realm, she is also a great protector among other things.
Keys are often made into talismans or charms with many various functions. They will always be of great desire and use to those that practice the craft. They can be used as protection charms for doorways that included keys and protection blessings so that homes can be shielded from the spirits of the place passing through doorways.
You can also use them on your altar:
- For divination, the passageway ‘in’.
- The holder of the key is allowed access to all that is unseen
- A symbol for sealed or locked away secrets
- An initiatory tool held by the one that has gained access into specific spaces on the other side
- A talisman in a protection spell
- The amulet of the Traveller
- Can be hung at doorways of your home for protection
- Removing blocks
- Opening roads
- Calling spirits
Invocation to charge your key.
Sacred Key, Sacred Key,
I charge you with the task
of unlocking the path of mystery.
Grant me pass, let me in
Make available the secrets
that exist within.
I like to repeat on the power of 3×3, but do it as often as feels right for you the more you rely on your intuition, the more affective you will become.
