Today’s Quote.

No matter how bad it hurts or how bad you feel, it’s time to stop thinking about that person who played with your feelings, who took your love for granted, who never appreciated your care, who wasn’t contented with what you could give him or her. You can’t stay at that hurtful place anymore. You can’t keep shedding tears over someone who doesn’t deserve the love you gave. You can’t keep feeling sorry for yourself and thinking if only you did more. You can’t make them want the relationship because if they wanted they wouldn’t have let go of you. You deserve better now. You deserve someone who appreciates you and who won’t play with your delicate heart. Its not the end of your life,you will get over the pain you’re having right now and one day you’ll be happy again.

The Witches Hat.

The Witches Tools

Athame – The athame is the traditional ritual dagger of the witch. Commonly it has a black handle and steel double-edged blade. The athame is a tool of command, it is used to direct what power we pass through it. It is used to cast circles by tracing the circumference, to charge and consecrate objects and banish negative energies. In most traditions, it is never used as a mundane knife for cutting purposes, and is used strictly for magical purposes only.
Pentacle – The pentacle is a traditional tool of the craft. Originally it is thought to have been adopted from ceremonial magic. It is usually a round solid disc often made from stone, wood or cooper. On the disc is engraved or painted an up-right five pointed star enclosed inside a circle called the Pentagram. A disc decorated in this manner then becomes called a Pentacle. In some traditions other symbols are added indicative of deities, spirits or the elements as sources of power. The pentacle is normally the centre piece of the alter on which objects are placed to be consecrated or charged, other things such as amulets, charms and tools are placed on it, as well as salt and water for blessings.
Wand – The wand is one of the prime magical tools of the witch. Traditionally the wand is made from the wood of a sacred tree. These include the Willow, Elder, Oak, Apple, Peach, Hazel and Cherry, to mention just a few. Its length should approximate the crook of the elbow to the middle of the index finger. These days many modern materials are used instead, and even tipped with crystals and gems. The wand is a tool of invocation, it is used to evoke the Gods, Goddesses and Spirits. It is also used to bestow blessings, charge objects and draw down the moon during ritual.
Censer – The censer is an incense burner used to contain burning incense during ritual. Any type of censer can be used, even a simple bowl filled with sand will do, it is normally placed before the images of the Goddess and God on the altar.
Chalice – The Chalice is one of the four elemental tools of witchcraft and represents the elements of Water. It is a symbol of containment and often represents the womb of the Goddess. The base is symbolic of the material world, the stem symbolises the connection between man and spirit and the rim or opening symbolically receives spiritual energy.
The chalice can be made of any material, in times of old – Horns, Shells and Gourds were used to hold sacred liquids during ritual, and then in later times – Silver became the preferred material, having long been associated with the moon and the Goddess. The chalice is used to hold the blessed water and wine during ritual. It is traditional in many covens to pass the chalice around all members, who then take a drink as a token of unity.
Broom – The broom is a ritual tool of the witch, sacred to both Goddess and the God. The God – through its symbolic phallic shape. The Goddess – through its three-piece make up, the stick, brush and binding cord being symbolic of the of the Goddess.
Traditionally the broom was made from three different woods. Ash for the handle, Birch twigs for the brush and Willow for the binding cord. Ash is protective and has command over the four elements. Birch is purifying and draws spirits to one’s service. Willow is sacred to the Goddess. The broom is used for a variety of purposes but most generally to purify and protect. It is used to ritually cleanse an area before magic is performed by symbolically sweeping away negative energies and astral build up. Of old it was used to guard the home and persons within against psychic attack or evil curses, this by placing it across the threshold, windowsills or doorways. It was also placed under the bed or a pillow to protect the sleeper. Traditionally and perhaps the use which most people identify it with, are the old wedding ceremonies of the Gypsies and the early American slaves, where a couple leapt over the broom to ensure fertility, domestic harmony and longevity. Today pagan hand-fasting rituals often include a broom jump.
Bolline – The Bolline or White-Handled knife as it is now known is the practical knife of the craft. Traditionally it was used to harvest herbs and had a blade in the form of a small sickle. Today it is normally a mundane knife used for cutting and carving. It has a white handle to differentiate it from the Athame, which has a black handle and is used only for magical purposes. The bolline is used to cut wands and herbs, to mark and carve candles with symbols and to cut cords for use in magic. Any other ritual function requiring the use of a knife, such as cutting flowers for the altar, can be performed with the bolline.
Cauldron – The cauldron is probably the tool most associated with witchcraft and is steeped in magical tradition and mystery. The cauldron is the container in which transmutation, germination, and transformations may occur. It is symbolic of the womb of the Goddess, and is the manifested essence of femininity and fertility. In ritual the cauldron is used as a container for making brews and potions, or to contain a small fire for use with spells. It can also be used for scrying (divination) by filling it with water and gazing into its depths.
In ancient times the cauldron was used as a cooking vessel and for brew making. Traditionally it was made from cast iron, it rests on three legs and has an opening smaller than its widest part.
Bell – The bell is a ritual tool of invocation and banishment. The bell is a feminine symbol of the creative force, that of the Goddess. The bell can be rung to indicate the start of a rite by banishing negative influences before the ritual begins. Often it is used to invoke the Goddess during ritual, or sounded at the four quarters to call forth such spirits as the Watchers and Elemental’s. Bells can be used to guard the home by warding off evil spells and spirits, or evoking good energies when placed in cupboards or hung on doors. Hung from a cord the bell symbolises the human soul suspended between heaven and earth.
Book of Shadows – The Book of Shadows is the workbook of the witch. In it is recorded: Rituals guidelines, Invocations, Spells, Runes, Rules of a particular Coven or Tradition, Symbols, Poems, Chants, and anything else of use to the witch during ritual. Traditionally the Book of Shadows was always hand written by the individual. A common custom for new initiates into a Coven, is to hand copy the teacher’s Book of Shadows exactly as it appeared, then later to add your own material as you progressed in the craft, today they are also typed and photocopied.

Today’s Quote.

We are often let down by the most trusted people and loved by the most unexpected ones. Some make us cry for things that we haven’t done, while others ignore our faults and just see our smile. Some leave us when we need them the most, while some stay with us even when ask them to leave. The world is a mixture of people. We just need to know which hand to shake and which hand to hold! After all that’s life, learning to hold on and learning to let go.

Today’s card was picked for Ronnie.


This card represents small beginnings, the time between beginning and taking the first steps to an actual creation, feeling restricted maybe with your time, so you tend to think a lot, feel a lot, make up your mind, but nothing substantial has yet happened. Maybe you need to stop being your own worst enemy, trust in yourself more and move forward.

Angel Whispers

Angel Boards have you ever to tried one?
Angel Boards look similar to an Ouija Board. They have the traditional letters A-Z and the words YES and NO they also include the numbers 1-9 and 0. With an Ouija board you would all place your fingers on a planchette or a glass, you then ask the spirits usually loved ones to help you move the planchette around the board to spell out words.
Angel boards are beautifully decorated with images of angels and flowers can be very successful in contacting your angels and guides when using an Angel Board we are working with the highest level of vibration. Always made sure you feel well and healthy, and never use when you’re tired, drunk or under the influence of drugs of any kind.
Your medium will make sure the room is prepared using smudge or some other form of clearing and protection, to make sure the area is safe. It is always nice to say a prayer, light candles and use some crystals, like rose quartz or angelica which is a light blue crystal to bring in a nice positive energy. The board can be used in daylight or a fully lit room.
Always use these means of communication with people you trust and feel comfortable with. I recommend you always work with a medium present a confident medium will know how to deal with anything that may occur, and close it down properly, and ensure everyone is safe.
