Justice Spell

This is a spell that will affect the outcomes of certain events. These events include justice in the matter of: civil proceedings, criminal cases, trials and hearings. It is meant to restore balance and peace to the lives of those who deserve it. It is not meant to pass judgment or to be done out of spite. The karmic law still applies to this spell so it is to be used with extreme caution. It is to be used to right a wrong that has been done but keep in mind that what we perceive to be wrong may not be so in the eyes of the God and Goddess. The final outcome is left up to them to decide upon.

This spell can also be modified to suit your needs as any other spell. You may use the colors you wish, the symbols you wish, etc. Black and white are traditionally used to represent justice as someone is right and someone is wrong. There is no gray area in between. You may also want to use the color blue to represent peace.

Here's what you will need:
~One black candle
~One white candle
~One blue candle
~Anointing oil (representative of protection, justice, or peace)
~Bowl of Water
~Bowl of Salt

Note*- Use smaller pillar or votive candles as you will need to let these candles burn out completely. That way it won't take many hours/days for them to burn.

Set the black candle to the left, the white candle to right of the black, and the blue candle center front. They should be in the form of an upside down triangle with the blue candle closest to you representing the tip of the triangle. Set the bowl of water to the left of the triangle and the bowl of salt to the right of the triangle. Cleanse the bowl of water with a pinch of salt. You will use the bowl of salt and the bowl of water to make a quick cleansing circle around you. You may chant: "I cleanse this space of negative energy and ill will. Only positive energy shall remain. So mote it be."

Once you have cleansed the area to your liking, anoint each candle with the oil by touching the tip of your finger to the top of each and declaring in the name of the God and Goddess (you may want to use specific deities that represent Justice) that they are sacred. After doing so, light each candle and visualize the wrong you wish to be righted. Start with the black candle, then white, and last, the blue one.

Say this invocation:

"Injustice, I do see thee,
Right the wrong I do decree.
Dear Goddess hear my plea,
Right the wrong as you do see.
As I do will, so mote it be!"

Repeat this chant 3 times. Let the candles burn out completely. Blessed be everyone!

Witch Ball

A Witch Ball is typically made of clear or stained glass in intricate designs. These balls were designed to ward off evil spirits, misfortune, and curses.Witches would enhance the ball's effect by enchanting them with protective spells. The bright colors of the ball would lure evil spirits inside while the intricate design would entrap them inside forever. Traditionally, witch balls were blue or green in color but have since been created with bright colors and designs.

Some say the modern day Christmas ornament derived their origins from the witch ball. It is not uncommon to see gazing balls in gardens which did originate from witch balls. Here's an easy and fun way to create your own witch ball:

Creating a Witch Ball:

~Clear glass ornament ball or glass/plastic bulbs
~acrylic paint

How to:
Open the top of the glass ornament and place acrylic paint inside. Shake the ornament to spread the paint in an intricate design. You may also place herbs, protective stone chips, etc inside the ball. You may want to place a protective spell or enchantment over the ball how you see fit. Hang the ball up by a window or in front of a door or fireplace. You may also hang it outside near the home to ward off evil spirits and negativity.

Wicca and Thanksgiving

Yes, it's that time of year again. Time to get out your turkey and dressing. Time to sit around a table with relatives that you may like or dislike, catch up on all the juicy gossip, and give thanks for the feast everyone is about to stuff their faces with (for the rest of the week ie. leftovers).

I must say that I typically celebrate Thanksgiving at Mabon which is the traditional Wiccan Sabbat to give thanks for the bountiful harvest. However, we Americans celebrate Thanksgiving on the last Thursday in November of each year. In school, we were all taught about how the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth and the Native Americans discovered them and helped them grow crops and learn to survive. If it wasn't for the the Native Americans, I'm sure all the Pilgrims would have died.

Anyway, many people see Thanksgiving in a negative light. It signified some of the first interactions between the Europeans and the Native Americans. Then later the Native Americans were driven off their lands, enslaved, converted, or murdered. So I can see where the negativity comes from.

However, you can make this day how you choose for it to be. You can look at it as a day of mourning and recite blessings, give offerings to the land, acknowledge those that were lost, or do a healing ritual. Or you could look at it as a day of Thanksgiving such as with Mabon and give thanks for what you have and your family and friends, offer thanks to the God and Goddess and for the harvest, bless the feast as an offering to your loved ones, and so on.

Here's a universal blessing one can do on Thanksgiving. It was written by Starhawk. Click here to view it.
