Last month during our Witching Hour fun, we learned about a few types of Witchcraft and Magic. Tonight I’d like to talk about a little more about types of magic.
Voodoo is not black magic, as it’s believed to be. It’s a formal religion with temples, priests, and gods. There are elaborate ceremonies and rituals. Initiates have a period of learning for nine days. In Haiti Voodoo uses some Christian images and practices.
Natural Magic uses herbs, oils, stones, and amulets. It doesn’t depend on conjuring entities, elaborate tools, or ceremonies. Solitary witches, pagans, and country dwellers mostly use it.
Low magic is another name for folk magic or natural magic. The power used in this magic comes from the witch or the Earth. Sticks, herbs, roots, and stones are often used. This magic is much simpler than High or Ceremonial Magic.
Love magic uses clay or wax figures to portray a person the magic is to work against. This kind of magic is usually used in black magic or healings. modern witches never or rarely use it for evil.
Knot magic has been used since the time of the ancient Eygptians and has been connected with witches since the middle ages. it was thought to be a powerful weapon and can be used to prevent situations.
Black magic is a type of negative magic that harms a person in some way. there is an attempt to talk to evil spirits to do evil work. usually thought of as using Voodoo dolls which isn’t necessarily black magic.
Candles are used to represent people or things. they are also used to request magic. can be used In white or black magic.
White magic is done for good and positive purposes. It’s done to help people. Protective magic is also white magic
Grey magic is neither positive or harmful. Binding is usually considered grey magic.
Sympathetic magic is also called Imitative magic. Actions imitate the real ones that are wanted in this type of magic.
P.S. I was suppose to have this posted on Tuesday, I’m sorry for the delay.
