Two other pictures I didn’t post of the ritual for little Alfie. I didn’t post these cause they didn’t show off the ritual enough but nonetheless I still like so
Omfg hands of Apotasy got fucking pushed till next fucking month
So last night I did my ritual to breathe life into Alfie. As I couldn’t barely the little one to be birthed from the Earth, I brought him through the cauldron of rebirth in order to create a new life within. Calling the celestial heavens and creating a spirit from them I gave him breath and called forth the greater Mandrake spirit as a whole to aid in the world. Inspired by how you traditionally you harvest mandrake three circles are made, the spiral is used for focus on Alfie himself. With other symbolism I usually use in my works which usually involve a representation for the celestial heavens and the underworld in this case the it’s actually most of it. The candles, white for heavens and red for the fires of Hell. two quartz crystals i use for the sole purpose of heaven and hell, one placed in the fire long ago and chanted to turn black kinda can be seen in the bottom left. A sigil of mandrake torn from old world witchery as a representation for the mandrake spirit I am conjuring anew. Burned and then Alfie passed through the smoke, followed my breathe. This lovely guy has been placed on my altar space to aid in future workings, and when i get a real mandrake root Ill instill another spirit of true mandrake within him so he is twice blessed.
I just really love how tumblr witches think they are above historically accurate accounts of practices. Tumblr thinks that only poc were slaves in the history of the world, and people like the Irish and Jewish populace have never been slaves. It’s really sad when people can’t even point out where a person has been flawed in their argument they turn into “you racist white person” kinda shit. Like if you think someone is wrong show your counter points and bring your sources, just saying they are wrong especially when the person knows his shit better than you do doesn’t help your argument at all.
Tumblr and it’s social justice community(among other community, *cough* otherkin and fandoms *cough*) need to calm the fuck down. Most social justice witches are absolutely terribly. They almost always never have sources and almost never make sense
800 followers! also why is my pic of chamers blowing back up?
So another super moon is coming up in like two days and I think it will be the perfect night to bring little Alfie to life, to breathe life into him as my mandrake totem, birth him into this world. In a perfect world I’d have a mandrake root that I could transfers the life of into him but Ill just conjure forth the spirit of mandrake and create a new one into him.I think he will make the perfect mandrake totem. Usually my ritual would require to bury him but he is much to fragile for that. So I have a ritual that will be preformed similar in fashion for him.
Personally it doesnt matter to me either way. I think both have strong reasons to use them. I think older spells that have been used by countless people have a strong power to them that a new spell that hasnt been used doesn’t. But a personal spell has a stronger connection the one using it so it’s a trade off. I like both rituals people create and rituals I do. In day to day kinda spellwork it’s sometimes easier to just use a spell book, for more person important stuff it might be better to actually create the ritual, but again I like following rituals from other people as well. for example I am going to be following a ritual for a year soon I believe so it’s a personal choice
I got it a while back, and I’m hoping it will be a good read!
One of my favorite books I own. it’s such a great book.
Also so sad Hands of Apostasy is gonna be two weeks late ): I emailed and asked
