The Witches Digest for Wednesday, August 30 – (Part 2 )

Current Moon Phase for August 30th

Waxing Gibbous
Illumination: 61%

The Moon today is in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts round 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous the moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset. The moon is then visible though most of the night sky setting a few hour before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has it’s roots in the Latin word “gibbosus” meaning humpbacked.

Witchcraft by Encyclopedia.com


The word “witchcraft” derives from the Saxon wicca, some-times translated as “wise person” but more accurately derived from an Indo-European root, “weik,” that produced words in various Western languages related to magic, religion, and divination. Currently, the word is used to designate a variety of very different but vaguely related phenomena including, but not limited to, (1) the magical/religious practitioners in a variety of third world pre-industrial societies; (2) the Satanism described in the anti-witchcraft books beginning in the late fifteenth century in Europe; (3) the Neopagan followers of Wicca,the religion started by Gerald B. Gardner in the 1940s; and (4) individuals (primarily female) who are reputed to have psychic abilities.

We Are Making Your Magickal Life A Little Easier……

Witches Of The Craft®

Sorry about the Digest today, after our road trip, I had to go get the oil changed in the car. When I got back, nothing had been done, so I added a few new things to your store. We are trying to make your magickal life easier, really! Yesterday, I mentioned we had some herbal mixes. These mixes are for various spells and contain the appropriate herbs needed for that spell. No more running to the store, ordering here, there and every place else to get what you need. For your convenience, we have bundled up the herbs for those spells in neat little packages. Right now, we have about 15 different herbal mixes in the store, we still have about 15 more to go. But when it is all said and done, we will have a herbal mix for any kind of spell you could possibly want. Right now…

Solar & Lunar Eclipses in Magic

Working magic during an eclipse is considered “advanced.”  This is certainly not because you have to have a certain “degree” or be “all powerful”!  It simply means that in order to understand the energy of an eclipse, you must understand the energy of time and the seasons.  You must also be able to raise and focus energy within a limited amount of time.

General Eclipse Information:

Some people may sense a time of stillness, or hesitation during an eclipse . . . like the tiny glitter of time before a pendulum swings back after having swung all the way in one direction. This is the essence of an eclipse, and is a similar sensation to that felt within a magic circle. Equinoxes provide us with a time “between the worlds,” or a window through which we can work magic.

Solar Eclipses:

Throughout the year, the sun waxes and wanes. At the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, the sun is only visible for a few short hours. Days become longer and at the Spring or Vernal Equinox, day and night are equal. At the Summer Solstice, the sun is visible for the longest period of time (the longest day of the year). Days start to become shorter and at the Autumnal Equinox, day and night are equal again. Finally, as the sun wanes, we are at the Winter Solstice again.

During a solar eclipse, we experience what might be called a “micro year”…

Made A Typo In The Grand Opening Special, It Should Be……..

Witches Of The Craft®

We invite you to come and take a look at our new store. We have affiliated ourselves with another wholesaler and we have lots of new items. Some of these items have never been seen on the internet or your local store either. With this new wholesaler, we can still offer you top quality merchandise at lower prices. And to boot, we are working on a deal with a Pagan clothing store to start selling their merchandise. I would say by the time it is over with Magickal Necessities will be a large store but we have no intentions of it ever stop growing.

Enough with that, we are just glad to be back and have a grand opening special just for you…..

With any $10 purchase you will receive a package of Cedar, White & Blue Sage smudge stick 3-Pack 4. These aren’t cheap sticks, if you bought them separately…

The 8/21 Solar Eclipse

With the 8/7 lunar eclipse as a prelude set-up, we’re headed towards the 8/21 solar eclipse – an unusual event creating an open doorway to jump through. This second eclipse is significant for a number of reasons, including its path over the destabilized US.
