Want to be a Witch, yet don't want dangerous items in your home? We've assembled this comprehensive kit to meet the beginning Witch's needs, without compromising safety.
You just read this cool book about a religion where there's aGoddess and a God, and they meet outside in nature, instead of some scary old building. They think sex is GOOD not evil, and you want to know where to sign up.
Mispronounces god/dess names, has to think a moment about which is deosil and which is widdershins. Has a shiny new athame (rhymes with "A-frame".)
Grand Old Wo/Man
Actually remembers Woodstock (the first one.) Will tell you about the time they dropped acid with Kerry Wendell Thornley - or maybe it was Robert Anton Wilson. Anyway, it was somebody with three names. Or was it three people with one name?
Luxuriant gray locks, listens very intently, knows dish about people you've only read about.
Tree Hugging Nature Sprite
Most prized possession: one of Judi Barry's old tree spikes.Simultaneously believes in universal love for humanity AND returning the planet to a pristine, uncorrupted state. Apt to remove clothes and fondle the shrubbery at a moment's notice. Can discuss compost in great detail.
No meat, no fragrance, no leather, no plastic, no smoke, no drugs, no eco-exploitive products, no animal tested cosmetics, no TV, no car,but very tolerant.
Anal Retentive Ceremonial
Book collection actually holds up the ceiling in places. Is studyingGreek, Latin and Hebrew all at once. Does "workings" instead of "rituals". All twenty volumes of their magical diaries are all in Enochian.
DISTINGUISHING SIGNS:Won't go anywhere without a book. Is constantly aware of which direction is east. Dresses according to planetary conditions, or whatever was on sale at Wal-Mart.
A man's shadow crossed her altar once and she spent three weeks purifying it. She'll have no wands in her chalice, thank you. No boys allowed in her full-moon club. Can hold forth for hours on the magical properties of menstrual blood.
Tiny axes or curved knives, just right for amputating a penis, are a favored symbol and often hang conveniently from her body parts. When a man approaches she rolls her eyes and stops talking.
Sexy Pagan Nymph
Oh, they're so nice! All that warm, round, sex-positive flesh --and you can actually carry on a conversation with them between orgasms...pant, drool...
Cute. Horny. Displays prominent cleavage. Will recite love poetry to you under a full moon. Likes to do it outdoors. Often destitute. All too few of them.
Corporate Closet Witch
"Hey, boss -- I'd like to take February 2nd as a personal day..."Has an entire chapter of their Book Of Shadows concerned with spells for purifying the workplace. Doesn't mind working on Christmas, especially if there's overtime involved. Quit being overtly Pagan at work since being canned by that born-again boss, but still refuses to say "Merry Christmas."
Can assume a properly smiley work persona at the drop of a hat. Constantly glances around the room anxiously looking for co-workers and their spies. Non-distinctive style of dress, no conspicuous tattoos.
Childe Ov Kaos
Can name seventeen industrial goth bands without pausing to think. Knows what a Prince Albert is. Personally feels that if no panicky headlines appear the day after you do a ritual, you screwed up. Painted on their jacket, engraved in their flesh and/or boldly displayed as jewelry is an emblem which resembles a combination of corporate logo and arcane symbol. If you don't know what it means, they'll think you're a dweeb.
Easy to picture as an alternative musician or bike messenger, difficult to visualize as a school teacher or research assistant, impossible to imagine as a TV news anchor or bank officer. Always wears black leather,even when sleeping.
At conventions, stays on the hotel floor that requires a special key for elevator access. Lurks around knots of conversation eavesdropping in order to see if their name is being mentioned. Arrives in helicopter especially for rituals. Starts every sentence with "I". If you ask them how it's going, they hand you a press release.
Always has plenty of books to autograph and will personally sell them to you at a slight discount from cover price. Never seen unaccompanied by beefy Amazonian bodyguards and doe-eyed hangers-on. Seems vaguely afraid of anyone they don't already know.
Scary Devil Worshipper
Would never be caught dead skyclad. Rarely smiles, except in a snide, knowing way which insinuates you are an ignorant peasant worthy of conquest. Secretly enjoys Rush Limbaugh and read The Bell Curve with smug satisfaction. Fascinated with Nazis. Probably has never hurt a fly, but they want you to think they're capable of vast destruction. Hasn't the foggiest idea what Paganism is; usually gets out when they find there's no bloodshed.
Lots of black and red. Men like goatees, women favor heavy blackeyeliner. At least one inverted pentagram somewhere on their person. If you see several of them getting tanked in a bar, it would be wise to stay far away.
Every magical gathering has at least one of these, along with several variants along the lines of Gerald Gardner, Tituba, Morgan LeFey, or somebody who was Atlantean royalty. Many of them were abducted by aliens recently, and have disturbing dreams rich with arcane symbolism that they will tell you all about, in great detail.
Look for the intense gleam in the eyes, the backpack rattling with various psychiatric medications, and the garments that were clearly designed and tailored on another planet.
Young and psychedelic. Can dance non-stop all night. Refuses to do boring Eurocentric rituals and prefers deities from sunny climes with lots of interesting local plants. Can say "Ayahuasca" ten times real fast and deliver long quotes from Terrence McKenna.
Dresses in color combinations that hurt the eyes unless you've taken ecstasy. Bloodshot eyes, blissful smile, never goes anywhere without ritual drum.
Is he a she? Is she a he? Are they a couple, or are those two a couple or are all four of them a quadruple? If getting answers to these questions could disturb you, best stay away. If, on the other hand, these kind of questions seem overly judgmental, you might have a real good time...
When you look at this person, does every sex act you've ever experienced in your life seem hopelessly vanilla? If so, congratulations -- you've found a Fairie!
Do their rituals have a script, a choreographer, a stage manager, an orchestra with chorus and last at least three hours? It's a High Episcopagan! They can memorize pages and pages of Olde Englishe, have more ritual garbs than most people have socks, and consider their main pagan influences to be Gerald Gardner, Judy Garland and Busby Berkeley.
Book of Shadows exceeds five volumes. Knows every note of "Carmina Burana" Don't ask them about that 18th century seed pearl trim on their ritual hat unless you've got an hour to spare.
If it's in a book, it must be true. If it's in an old book, it must really be true. If it's in an old book that was handed down from a noral tradition of people who couldn't read, then it must really be way true. Gnashes their teeth if anyone shows up at a circle wearing a watch, glasses, or other mechanical assistance. Believes that anyone who lives in a city, eats meat or has a regular job dare not call themselves a Pagan.
DISTINGUISHING SIGNS:Has hissy fits when somebody brings up the old "Crowley ghosted Gardner's books" argument. Goes around correcting everyone's Gaelic/OldNorse/Latin/Babylonian.
Dances With Bunnyrabbits
Uses animal symbolism to express nearly all opinions and feelings. Charter member of PETA. Thinks meat eaters should be publicly executed. Has many, many, many pets. Has a spirit animal. Personally owns 927 models, pictures, and other depictions of their spirit animal.
Not counting the Pagan his/herself, how many animals can you see when looking at them? If the count surpasses five (including critters found on tattoos, jewelry, garments and undies), you've found a worshipper of beasties.
Priest/ess of Political Correctness
Analyzes everything they read or hear for sexist-racist-homophobic-imperialist-Eurocentric content without paying attention to what is actually being said. Believes in personal liberty -- everyone has the right to be overbearing, dogmatic and holier-than-thou, not just the X-tian Right. Incredibly boring yet annoyingly self-righteous all at the same time.
Beady hyper-alert little eyes are constantly in motion, waiting for someone to do or say something bad. Has loud and attention attracting hissy fits when confronted with everyday things such as advertising or corporate franchises. Rudimentary sense of humor is rarely activated.
Our Lady Of Intense Suffering
Is constantly persecuted. You're probably persecuting her right now, you just don't realize it. Became a Pagan because she decided it was the most persecuted religion of all. Can't enjoy anything because it would be selfish to have any fun when so many are suffering.
Tales of woe. Even less of a sense of humor than #17. Bristles when anyone says the words "masochist" or "whining".
I Am Not Spock (at the moment)
Knows at least three filks about Cthulhu and at least forty Star Trek jokes. Has found a clever way to create simple furniture from stacks of science fiction paperbacks. Can name ninety different kinds of spaceship.
Two fisted drinking style. Probably still lives with parents. Many cryptic buttons, badges, patches and other insignia. Too smart for their own good.
Insist that they aren't homophobic; they just believe that Paganism is about a goddess and a god and they do it and what could be more obvious than that? It just doesn't "work right" if you try any other way! Are secretly afraid that gays and/or lesbians are dying to jump their tender hetero bones.
Living spaces abound with depictions of satyrs with enormous genitalsand huge-breasted, doe-eyed goddesses. Long manicured nails and wreaths of flowers (on females only -- men have big, bushy beards instead.)
Heroic and Vikingly, these Pagans often get into trouble with festival organizers and park rangers due to their fondness for running around with a huge battle-ax in one hand and a full mead horn in the other. They throw the best parties, but if you're a wimp, you're expressly not invited.
Look for the large, foreboding, biker-like persons wearing runes, with many pounds of amber dangling from their necks.
use the word `we' collectively and "I" personally.
Who are the "Indigo" people? Why are we here, what purpose do we serve? Are we a threat, or an improvement? How can one `spot' an Indigo adult or child? Are you one? Your child? Someone you know?
The world is shifting and changing. Old paradigms and cultures are dying, superseded by brilliant new ones. A change is happening- the Apocalyptic mindset is setting, and the Ascension mindset is rising. The world as we know it is at a cusp between great Ages, and we are in a time of accelerated development as well as decay, both socially and spiritually. There is much confusion in the world, as the old ways try to maintain their grasp on power, and the new ways brighten the horizon and edge their way in. The whole result is an incredibly confusing mix of dogmatic rule-bound conservatism and rule-free hedonism and social anarchy. This explosive mix is evident in the Public World- road rage, wild children, indifferent parents, dogmatic
fundamentalist evangelicism, no-holds-barred radio and TV, and a previously impossible mix of stark prudishness and wild abandon. Even Rome wasn't this crazy when it fell- and they had lead poisoning as an excuse. As the Chinese curse states, we're living in `interesting times'- very interesting times. Headlines that would have shocked us a couple of decades ago now barely rate a raised eyebrow. The wonders of science increase at such a rate that what was science fiction last week is science fact this week.
Add to this volatile mix a new spiritual `species' of human being starting to make an impact on this world. They have been labeled "Electric Blue", "Cobalt", and "Indigo" by various channels
and prophecies, because of the high-frequency emanations of their particular auras. Every living being has one- a field of energy that surrounds, permeates and radiates from them. They can be sensed and even photographed with today's electronics. Psychically sensitive people have seen them forever. These field-sensitive people can `see' a dark electric blue -almost black- auric outline around these people. It is the deep, brilliant blue of the clear sky after the sun
has set, but before the stars appear- a terminator or cusp color. In the light spectrum, it is the next to highest visible band of light in the rainbow octave we can see. Highlights of violet, green, gold and white are also apparent. I was called `Cobalt'several years back by a sensitive Spiritualist medium in England, but the most popular current title is "Indigo". For the sake of brevity, I shall use Indigo also, but it applies to all people of this auric category.
Much has been made of the current crop of Indigo children being born, but Indigos of the current group have been incarnate for just over 40 years. The earliest Indigos born between the late fifties and late seventies had protective auric overlays of standard blues and violets
and tans, because the culture was not ready yet for the impact of `pure' Indigos who started appearing in the mid- eighties. These Elders possess the same capacities as the younger Indigos, but had a longer `latency' period. This was for their own survival and protection. Elder Indigos are just starting to come into their real power, and act as guides, role models, and tutors for the youngsters who are now manifesting. They had to spend some time in the Old World so they can help make the transition into the New World.

To create an environment from which to send loving light outward, start by going inward. Take care that your own body is well nurtured physically and spiritually, with prayer, meditation, exercise, and good nutrition. Keeping a clean and tidy house honors the sanctity of your home, but beyond surface cleaning, it's important to cleanse regularly as well. Apply the spiritual principals of feng shui or vatsu to create harmony in every room of your home. Open windows to let in fresh air and sunshine. Clear stagnant energy by smudging with sage or incense, drumming, and/or clapping.
Ask for a blessing on your home through prayer or meditation. In a quiet place, breathe in calmness and center yourself. Begin to focus on a small, golden ball of light in front of your navel. You may cup your hands around the light and feel its warmth spread through your fingers, up your arms, radiating throughout your body. Imagine the ball of light growing in your hands and open your hands to accommodate it. As it continues to grow, stretch your arms out wider until the golden ball overflows, spilling loving light all over the room. Now watch the light spread throughout your house, pouring out the doors and windows to your garden and into your neighborhood. See the light flow like lava until the whole earth is engulfed in a golden glow of peace and love.
Breathe deeply to return to your space, letting the glow continue to radiate loving energy to all. Allow yourself to bask in the light and know that your home is a sanctuary for all who enter and even for those beyond its physical boundaries.
2 green candles
1 white candle
Picture of a wolf/wolves
Consecrated salt and water

The candles are used to focus your energy.
Chant the following:
"Candles three, green and white,
Bring protection here this night.
The Moon is full, the sky is clear,
Misfortune and evil disappear.
The mighty wolf shall ever reign,
and be protected from harm and bane.
Come hither! Come hither!
Spirits of the Wolf, strong and great!
Be guarded by this circle and throughout your life."
