Otherworldly Influences

Ask the spirits   Reality is but a grand illusion.

Anonymous asked: I've been getting into witchcraft lately.(apologise if that sounds straightforward) I find it very interesting and I've found it interesting for a long while. I've finally built up the courage to asking this (childish I know) I read a lot of things on your blog and I love it. I know a lot more than before. I was kinda wondering if there were simple spells I can start with ( maybe 1) or 1 or 2 things that I can read so I know a thing or two.

Hey, it’s not childish at all! Everyone does things at their own pace; we’re glad to be able to help you :)

To help with terms (that you may get confused)

As for spells, I’ve found that the simplest spells (in my opinion) tend to be protection, luck, and healing spells. They’re usually pretty straight forward and often use easy to find materials. Here are a few you might like:

Simple Shrine Spell of Protection
Simple Protection Sachet
Good Luck Candle Spell

You can find hundreds of spells on either of these fabulous blogs!

Anonymous asked: I am wondering through the media it seems 'Wicca' is of satanic nature, for example the pentagram, is represented as satans symbol, I was just wondering does "WICCA" have any affiliation with satanic anything ? Thank you


Answer:

thepaganstudygrouppage:

First I’d like to say that Wicca is (usually) not associated in the media with anything Satanic. At least, not with more recent media from the 90s and forward. If a media source uses a pentagram to represent satanism or satanic behavior, they are not misrepresenting Wicca because they aren’t talking about Wicca.

The pentagram is used in many different religions and cultures; it has been used far longer than Wicca has existed, and it is not a Wiccan symbol. It is a symbol Wicca uses, along with many other religions, and they all have different meanings for the pentagram.

To answer your question, generally speaking Wicca has little to nothing to do with anything satanic. Most Wiccans don’t believe in satan or satan-figures, so there is no connection in that case.

The only time you’ll probably ever see a connection is if a Neo-Wiccan chooses to incorporate Satanism in their practice. Being that Neo-Wicca is more eclectic and borrows from other religions, it is possible for the two to work together (in my opinion).

So generally speaking, little to no connection. But it is possible for individual practitioners to connect the two in their practice. (Inner Court Wicca is a very different matter altogether).
