There are a few objects or tools that are as stereotypical as the flying witch.
How could a witch fly if she doesn’t have broom? True witches don’t fly but they do love their brooms. The broom is used to clean. Sweeping the physical dirt from a witches’ work space. It’s also used to sweep any negative energy from a witch’s space.
“Double double toil and trouble; fire burn and cauldron bubble.”
A witch or witches standing around a large boiling cauldron tossing in eyes of newt and all sorts of strange named ingredients is partially true. Witches use cauldrons at times to create brews and potions. Other times to burn spells. Most of the time a cauldron is used to burn incense during rituals.
Pieces of wood usually a tree branch used for directing power. May be decorated with symbols, crystals, and or ribbons. Usually every witch has one.
Always on the altar. It represents life and one or both elements of earth and or water. Also used to mark circle.
Always on the Altar. It represents spirit and the element of water. Used in consecration process.
I have a broom but it is missing a handle but I do actually have a birds nest and several feathers on my desk as well as an array of crystals, it has been queried whether it is a desk or an altar to which I reply a little bit of both 😀
LOL, I have crystals and stones and a jar of dirt on my desk, along with a bunch of other strange things. Your broom needs a handle! 😀
It did have one until the monster tried to attach one of his toys to it, will end up buying a new one 😀
A lot of this stuff makes it into my stories. I’m glad you’re blogging about it.
It makes it into my stories too. I decided I might as well share some of my research. I’m tired of witches always being the bad guy too. They should also be the good guy.
