More about the Metal: Gold

In fashion, everyone knows gold and silver are the best materials for jewelry. In Witchcraft, these metals balance each other as male and female energy (respectively), each amplifying their own qualities that help in your spellwork. We mentioned this briefly in our Jewelry Spells post, and you will find many color magick spells with gold and silver (genuine or imitation) in a quick online search. Put these together to discover the power that real (14 kt. or better) gold can have on your magick.

Gold reflects the Masculine and Solar energies prominent in upcoming Yuletide celebrations. It evokes prosperity as the most-prized metal since ancient times, but the greatest symbol in gold is that of transcendence. As gold is melted, it becomes purer. The higher its purity, the more flexible it is.

For these reason, gold has remained a potent symbol in almost every society and spiritual path on earth. Harmonized with silver and cast into magick symbols, gold has the power to invoke Gods to help you cast spells. It can also be worn to honor solar deities like Celtic God Belenos, Ancient Egyptian Gods Horus and Ra, and Ancient Greek & Roman God Apollo.

You can find in-stock 14 kt. and 18 kt. gold accent sterling silver Magick Symbols jewelry in our Shopify store. Order in-stock jewelry before December 18th to receive by the 24th.

Blessed be )O(

Familiars & Animal Totems

Sterling silver pendant of a Celtic Witch & her cat familiar riding a broomstick (TPD4248)

We’re all animals. Maybe that’s why we all feel such a strong connection to our pets and hold the magnificent beasts of nature with so much regard. Gods and Goddesses often assume animal form, speaking as spiritual guides. One need only understand the symbolism to grasp their messages and guidance.

But Familiars and Animal totems are more personal. Familiars are our animal companions and accomplices in magickal endeavors. They can be cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, or other animals with whom you feel a spiritual connection, and who enhance your spellwork by their energy and physical presence within your Magick Circle.

Animal totems are those whom we call upon to guide us. Unlike spiritual animal guides, we seek the advice from animal totems to help us. Although your patron God(dess) might be Ostara, you might call to the Goddess Macha for justice with Raven symbolism. And unlike Familiars, animal totems don’t need to be present, just represented.

BUT, that doesn’t mean your Spiritual Animal Guide, your Animal Totem, and your Familiar can’t be the same!

Who’s your familiar? How do they help you cast magick spells?

Enchanting Jewelry Spells

Handcrafted sterling silver Thor's Hammer pendant featuring spiral and Trinity Knot symbolism
Sterling silver Thor’s Hammer Pendant (TPD864)

If you’ve been following Magick Symbols on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Google+, you’ve probably seen some posts about spell jewelry and Jewelry Spells. Most Witches have enchanted crystals and jewelry with intent spells, and some Witches hand-make talismans. But did you know a piece of jewelry can be used in spell-casting? From form to function, jewelry can be powerful enhancers of magical intent.

The most apparent explanation is the symbolism in a piece of jewelry. Does it speak to your intent? Celtic Knotwork is often traced to different bind spells (depending on which type of knot is used), while runes and sigils invoke deities to assist you in your spellwork.

More than symbolism, what your jewelry is made of can make a difference for jewelry spells. We all know crystals and gemstones augment magick. Homemade amulets carry a certain mystique, especially if you wear them openly. However, even when charging a piece of jewelry, some metals amplify your intent better than others. Silver is considered feminine and is (paradoxically) the most conductive and reflective metal on earth. Prized for its beauty and many uses, silver ranks second only to gold, which represents compassion, wealth, and masculinity, on top of its historical, aesthetic, and industrial significance. For these reasons, silver and gold channel your magic with the most clarity.

Sterling Silver Laurie Cabot Green Man Pendulum Pendant

Aside from symbols and materials, many jewelry spells have actual functions. We’ve mentioned Poison Rings and Bottle Pendants a few times, but these treasures can actually be used to hold essential oils and herbs for aromatherapy and pomander spells, tiny stones, or any other charged magical item you can fit inside, to take with you. Pendulum Pendants can be worn around your neck until you need to channel answers from spirits and your subconscious. Laurie Cabot designed two such pendants (with Green Man pictured right, and Goddess imagery) that allow you to store conical pendulum stones or spells.

A lot goes into the creation of jewelry spells, whether you make them yourself or follow ancient traditions and wisdom kept alive by Witches like Laurie Cabot. You can find her collection (in-stock!) HERE.
