Goddess: Brigid

Image from: LINK
Brigid is the Celtic goddess of fire (the forge and the hearth) is celebrated in many European countries. She is also known by many names, including Saint Brigid who may be one of the most powerful religious figures in Irish history.

Brigid was first worshipped in ancient times as the daughter of the great Irish god Dagda, the 'Good Father'.  She had two sisters who were also named Brigid. Brigid is often now known as a Triple Goddess (encompassing all three sisters)... however unlike most triple Goddesses represented by the chronicalogical aspects of womanhood, these "Brigid"s are of the same generation and are distinguished by their responsibilities.
  • Brigid, the 'Fire of the Hearth', was the goddess of fertility, family, childbirth and healing.
  • Brigid, the '"Fire of the Forge', was like the Greek goddess Athena, a patroness of the crafts (especially weaving, embroidery, and metalsmithing), and a goddess who was concerned with justice and law and order.
  • Brigid, the 'Fire of Inspiration', was the muse of poetry, song history and the protector of all cultural learning.

Crochet Project: Gloves

I have recently taken up crochet.  I am very proud of myself - having learned in one weekend.
For the girl witchlets and I, I have made some fingerless gloves - as a witch it is important to keep those fingers free!
I have modified it, but the original pattern can be found here: http://www.caron.com/projects/ss_party/sspar3_party_wristlets.pdf

Finding What is Lost

I am deeply sadden.  Over the recent seasonal festivities, some how my Pagan Rosary was lost.  I love this necklace, I wore it nearly everyday.  I hand-made it with fancy Jasper beads.  My Children, husband and I have searched for days but still cannot find it.  Since the mundane methods have not work, I feel it's time to get magickal :)


Complex Spell to find what is lost:

Supplies:
  • Mirror
  • Orange candle
  • Black candle
  • Small Magnet

Cast your circle and invoke the Elemental Guardians. Light the black candle (for solving mysteries, and drawing away the negativeness of the loss), and then the orange candle (for luck and precious objects). Visualize the lost object(s) in the mirror as already being found. Place the magnet between the two candles and stroke it towards you as you say the following three times, substituting the name of the lost object for "(lost object)":
By the wavering flame of this black light,
Grant to me of my (lost object) a sight.
By the power of this orange flame,
Give me luck to find the same.
In this mirror the (lost object) I see
Make the magnet draw them to me.
Close the circle, but leave the candles burning with the magnet between them until the candles burn down.

Chant to Find Lost Item:
Be sure to concentrate on your lost article.
Earth, air, water, fire, help me find what I desire
Candle, cup, wind, seed, help me find what need
