  • Powerful Full Moon Spells

    3 comments / Posted on by Magic Proposal

    The full moon is arguably the most powerful time of the lunar cycle. It’s certainly a sight to behold as it hangs in the sky and shines down on you like a big spotlight.

    The full moon can give witches an “all-purpose” kind of energy you can use to boost the effectiveness of any spell you wish to perform. To take advantage of this energy, you don’t have to throw a huge full moon ceremony with a group of other witches whenever the full moon comes around. You can create your own personal way of tapping into this special energy.

    These spells are designed to work with full moon energy, but you can also use the concepts presented here to use full moon energy in your other, more general spells.

    If you’re looking for several more unique ways to get started using the full moon in your witchcraft, here are four full moon spells to try.

    Pentacle Prosperity Spell

    Use this spell to manifest a growing income and long-term wealth. This spell is designed to bring more money into your life and to use that money to make wise investments. This is a fantastic spell to do when you’re saving for the down payment on a house, making a plan to provide for your family or partner, selling a home, or starting a new business. This spell is for protecting and blessing those BIG milestone investments we make throughout our lives.

    What You’ll Need:

    - Ten of Pentacles tarot card - this card holds the energy of abundance that flows through multiple generations. This card isn’t necessarily about quick cash; this card can be used to call in long-term prosperity so you can leave behind a legacy.

    - A coin.

    - Blanket (optional).

    On the night of the full moon lay down on your back on the ground. You can spread the blanket out underneath you if that makes you more comfortable. It’s best to do this outside under the moon, but as long as you’re clear with your intention, you can perform this spell anywhere.

    Place the Ten of Pentacles tarot card on the place in your body where you “sense” that you make financial decisions from. This could be anywhere on your body—your head, your heart, your stomach (gut), or even your pelvis.

    If you’re not sure, spend a minute or two pondering your next big financial decision and notice where you feel any kind of sensation. This could feel like a fluttering in your stomach, a wrinkled forehead, or a tingle of energy in your chest. Wherever you feel that, position the tarot card there so that the front of the card (with the pentacles) is facing up towards the moon. Set the coin on top of the card.

    Spread your legs on the ground and extend your arms out like you’re about to make a snow angel. You’re essentially making your body into the points of a pentagram—your head at the top, and your two hands and feet as the other four points.

    If you’re new to witchcraft, some witches associate the pentagram with protection and power. That power and protection will be used in this spell to bring you the power to call in wealth and protect your investments.

    To activate your spell, think or speak your intention aloud, energetically sending it up to the moon. The full moon appears to you as a perfect circle. The moon’s circle and your body’s pentagram shape create the shape of a pentacle.

    “I call on the power of the prosperous full moon to merge with the energy of the protective pentagram. Tonight, our shapes merge to create a pentacle. Together, the moon and I manifest a lifetime of golden coins.”

    The card and the coin are symbolic of your intention to co-create with the moon’s energy. Your energy is underneath the card and coin, while the moon’s energy shines down from above. The two energies will meet and mix where the card and coin are. The card and the coin represent long-term wealth, which is the desired result of your spell.

    Gaze up at the moon as you visualize what your life will look like once your spell has manifested. Notice any sensations or feelings you experience, particularly where you’ve placed the card and coin.

    You may end the spell whenever feels natural. You can put your tarot card back in the deck and keep the coin in your pocket as a “money magnet” of sorts.

    Reveal What Is Hidden Cherry Spell

    The full moon is a perfect time for practicing divination because the light of the full moon is known to reveal information that has been hidden from you. Some witches believe cherries and cherry juice hold divination power. I like to pair cherry magic with a full moon because both are round and both are “hiding” something—the moon hides its “dark side” and a cherry hides its pit.

    What You’ll Need:

    - A bowl of cherries with the pits

    Sit outside or by a window with your bowl of cherries. Speak this incantation to receive secret information using the energy of the full moon.

    “If there is something I can’t see,

    Moon, send your wisdom down to me.

    Inside the fruit, there hides a pit,

    The darkest truths will now be lit.”

    Eat your cherries and keep your mind open to any thoughts or feelings that come to you as you do this. Drop each pit back into the bowl. When you’ve eaten all the cherries, hold the bowl of cherry pits in your right hand and use your index finger in your left hand to stir the cherry pits.

    Pour the cherry pits out of the bowl and discard them. Gaze into the bowl and read the remaining cherry juice as you would tea leaves in a teacup. Look for shapes, images, or symbols and journal about any thoughts or messages you receive. 

    When you’re finished, thank the moon for sharing its wisdom.

    Clear Quartz

    Clear quartz is the most common mineral in the Earth's crust. Because it is found on nearly every continent on Earth, clear quartz is most likely the least expensive crystal on your shopping list. Clear Quartz is versatile and good for protection, healing, and clarity.

    When to use Clear Quartz

    Essentially, clear quartz is universally handy; if you don't have a particular stone for a spell. In addition to its amplification properties, it's unusually good for protection and healing spells, as well as providing clarity.

    Rose Quartz

    As you might guess, rose quartz, which color is caused by small amounts of titanium in the crystal, is a variety of quartz that gets its name from the rosy pink hue of the stone. Rose quartz is used to purify and open the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace. It can be used to help bring comfort in times of grief. It is known to repel feelings of heartbreak and anxiety. 

    When to use Rose Quartz

    Those with mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression can find rose quartz helpful on their road to recovery; although, of course, crystals are not a replacement for therapy and medication. Always consult with a doctor before supplementing with crystals.


    Amethyst is a protective stone and is also reputed to have sobering effects. Amethysts get their color from small amounts of iron deposited during the formation of the crystal that becomes irradiated by exposure to gamma rays.

    When to use Amethyst

    Amethyst is a powerful and protective stone. Amethyst can be used as a natural tranquilizer, as it relieves stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear, and anxiety. Amethyst activates spiritual awareness, opens intuition and enhances psychic abilities. It possesses strong healing and cleansing powers.

    Selenite is a crystalline variety of the mineral gypsum. If placed in water, selenite will revert to gypsum. Selenite is most often transparent and colorless. Selenite can come in several colors, including grey, green, orange, and brown.

    When to use Selenite

    Selenite helps provide clarity of the mind, expanding one's awareness of the self and of one's surroundings. It helps open the crown and higher-crown chakras and accesses higher guidance from spirit guides.

    The crystal can be used to access past lives as well as future lives. Selenite is a calming stone that instills deep peace and is excellent for meditation or spiritual work. It assists judgment and insight. It clears confusion and aids in seeing the deeper picture.


    Hematite, also spelled hematite, is one of several mineral forms of iron oxide. It is the oldest known iron oxide mineral and is widespread in rocks and soils. Hematite is colored black to steel or silver-gray, brown to reddish-brown, or red.

    When to use Hematite

    Hematite is used for grounding and protection. It helps strengthen our connection with the earth, making us feel safe and secure. It endows us with courage, strength, endurance, and vitality.

    In ancient times, the crystal was believed to bring good luck. The Ancient Romans smeared hematite on their bodies, believing it would make them invisible in battle. 

    Hematite utilizes the magnetic qualities of our energies to balance the ethereal nervous system and the physical nervous system. It assists with focusing on energy and emotions on balance between the body, mind, and spirit.

  • A Brief History of the Salem Witch Trials

    0 comments / Posted on by Magic Proposal

    Salem is known as the city of witch. There were a lot of witch trials that occurred between 1692 and 1693 in here. More than 200 people were accused of practicing witchcraft and 20 of them were executed. After that, the story of the trials has become tantamount with paranoia and injustice. It continues to beguile the popular imagination more than 300 years later.

    1. Context and origin of the Salem Witch Trial

    Belief in the supernatural, especially in the devil’s practice of giving certain humans (witches) the power to harm others in return for their loyalty–had emerged in Europe as early as the 14th century. This was widespread in colonial New England. Besides, the harsh realities of life in the rural Puritan community of Salem Village at the time included the after-effects of a British war with France in the American colonies in 1689. 

    2. Salem witch trials

    The Salem Witch Trials were a series of witchcraft cases brought before local magistrates in a settlement called Salem which was a part of the Massachusetts Bay colony in the 17th century.

    • Setting the scene

    The Salem Witch Trials began for the first time in February of 1692 when the afflicted girls accused the first three victims, Tituba, Sarah Good, and Sarah Osborne. 

    • Salem struggling

    From the 1300s to the end of the 1600s, a "witchcraft craze" rippled through Europe. Most people executed were women. Although the Salem trials came on just as the European craze was winding down, local circumstances explain their onset.

    • Restoring good names

    Artists and scientists alike continued to be fascinated by the Salem witch trials in the 20th century. Moreover, numerous hypotheses have been devised to explain the strange behavior that occurred in Salem in 1692.

    The General Court ordered a day of fasting and soul-searching for the tragedy of Salem on January 14, 1697. While, in 1702, the court declared the trials unlawful. Until 1711, the colony passed a bill restoring the rights and good names of those accused and granted £600 restitution to their heirs. However, more than 250 years later, in 1957, Massachusetts formally apologized for the events of 1692.

    • Salem witch trials executions

    English law at the time dictated that anyone who refused to enter a plea could be tortured in an attempt to force a plea out of them. This legal tactic was known as “peine forte et dure” which means “strong and harsh punishment.”

    The torture consisted of laying the prisoner on the ground, naked, with a board placed on top of him. Heavy stones were loaded onto the board and the weight was gradually increased until the prison either entered a plea or died.

    • Trials conclusion & legacy

    As the trials and executions continued, colonists began to doubt that so many people could be guilty of this crime. They feared many innocent people were being executed. Local clergymen began speaking out against the witch hunt and tried to persuade officials to stop the trials.

    Around the end of September, the use of spectral evidence was finally declared inadmissible, thus marking the beginning of the end of the Salem Witch Trials.
    Although spectral evidence, evidence-based on dreams and visions, wasn’t the only evidence used in court during the Salem Witch Trials, it was the most common evidence and the easiest evidence for accusers to fake.

    Other evidence used in the trials included confessions of the accused, possession of certain items such as poppets, ointments or books on the occult, as well as the presence of an alleged “witch’s teat”.

    • Salem witch trial victims

    A total of 19 accused witches were hanged at Proctor’s Ledge, near Gallows Hill, during the witch trials. The others were either found guilty but pardoned, found not guilty, were never indicted or simply evaded arrest or escaped from jail.

    The common myth often occurred in the trials is that the Salem Witch Trials victims were burned at the stake. There is the fact that no accused witches were burned at the stake in Salem, Massachusetts. Salem was ruled by English law at the time, which only allowed death by burning to be used against men who committed high treason and only after they had been hanged, quartered and drawn.

    • Life after the Salem witch trials

    Daily chores, business matters, and other activities were neglected during the chaos of the witch trials, causing many problems in the colony for years to come.


    As the years went by, the colonists felt ashamed and remorseful for what had happened during the Salem Witch Trials. Since the witch trials ended, the colony also began to suffer many misfortunes such as droughts, crop failures, smallpox outbreaks, and Native-American attacks and many began to wonder if God was punishing them for their mistake.

  • Top 9 Real Witches In History All Around The World

    1 comment / Posted on by Magic Proposal

    Whether they were accused of conferring with the Devil or merely stood as threats to conventional society. Witches have long captured the public imagination. Many witches are seen as the feminist icon, while others have been linked to death and destruction. Here are some famous “witches” who have haunted the ages.


    1.Elizabeth Bathory

    Countess Elizabeth Bathory - the owner of Csejthe castle - is considered the most famous assassin in Hungarian history. Over the years, hundreds of girls recruited to work at Csejthe Castle were recorded as mysteriously missing. After investigation, the girls were found in the dungeon.

    According to the victims' testimony, they were tortured for extended periods, including brutal beatings: being burned or having their hands cut; having their flesh cut off from the body; burned in the face and some other parts; starved to death ... Besides, there were rumors of Countess Elizabeth bathed in the blood of the victim. Although "witch" Elizabeth Bathory was not brought to trial for her social status, she was kept under house arrest until she died.

    2. Ilse Koch

    She was Karl Koch’s wife - commander of the concentration camps Buchenwald and Majdanek in Nazi Germany, Ilse is known as "the witch of Buchenwald". Infatuated with her husband's absolute power, Ilse was satisfied with the torture. Ilse is famous for killing prisoners, cutting skin for tattoos. 

    3. La Voisin

    Catherine Monvoisin, also known as La Voisin, lived in France in the mid-1600s. She was also one of the heads of the affaire des poisons, a cult who poisoned many members of the French aristocracy, and who had planned to poison King Louis XIV.

    In the late 1670s, fear of poisoning and witchcraft reached a fever pitch in the streets of France, and many successful fortune-tellers and poisoners, including La Voisin, were arrested. She was burned publicly after being convicted of witchcraft in 1680.

    4. Merga Bien

    A well-to-do German heiress in the 17th century, Merga was on her third husband when her fate was sealed. Of the over 200 people who were accused of and executed for being witches in Fulda, Merga was considered to be the most famous. The circumstances that led to her death were ill-timed: She had just returned to the city after arguing with one of her husband's employers and she found herself pregnant.

    5. Isobel Gowdie

    Tried and executed for witchcraft in 1662, Gowdie is notable for her detailed confession, which she gave of her own volition, without being tortured like so many other women of the time. Gowdie was a young housewife who lived at Auldearn, Highland, Scotland. 

    Her confessions about her coven’s activities, including their supposed ability to transform into animals, gave great insight into European folklore surrounding witchcraft at that time. She also claimed to be “entertained” by the Queen of the Fairies, in her home “under the hills.” Some speculate that Gowdie’s confession may have been the result of psychosis, or a ploy to get a more lenient sentence.

    6. Dion Fortune

    Dion Fortune was known as a British occultist and author thought of by many as a modern-day witch. She wrote prolifically about the occult in both fiction and non-fictional works. The Fraternity of the Inner Light was founded in 1924 by her. This was known as a magical society dealing with religious philosophy and alternative realities. She died in 1946, leaving behind her magical society, which has survived to this day. 

    7. Tituba

    Most people here have heard this name from Authur Miller’s - The Crucible. But like many other characters in the play, Tituba was inspired by a real person. Tituba admitted to the participation of an occult ritual, saying that she had baked a witch cake in an attempt to help her mistress, Elizabeth Parris. 

    Tituba embellished her confession by adding details about her service to the devil, riding on sticks, and being told by a black dog to harm the children. Tituba, along with many others, was imprisoned for nearly a year but managed not to be one of the women hanged for witchcraft.

    8. Mother Shipton

    Ursula Southeil, better known as Mother Shipton, was a highly regarded and feared English prophetess during the 1500s. Mother Shipton was considered England's greatest clairvoyant and was even compared to Nostradamus. 

    Some of Mother Shipton’s prophecies foretell many modern events and phenomena; it is said she predicted the Spanish Armada, the Great Plague of London, the Great Fire of London, the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, and the Internet. Unlike so many other well-known witches, Mother Shipton died a natural death and was buried on the outer edges of York in 1561. 

    9. Agnes Sampson

    In the North Berwick area between 1590-1592, there were 70 people accused of being witches, Agnes Sampson was one of them. The confessions were brought on by torture, and the questioning oftentimes came from the King himself.

    Unfortunately, however, the torture was too much for her take and it broke her spirit. Sleep-deprived and exhausted by being bound in a witch's bridle, an instrument that inserted four prongs in the mouth and was attached to a wall, she confessed to being allies with Satan and conspiring to kill the King.

  • 6 Essential Steps To Become A Hedge Witch For Beginners

    73 comments / Posted on by Magic Proposal

    In the witch world, there are many different kinds of witches, each with its particular quirks and preferred ways of living and working. A Hedge Witch is one way to do magic, just like there is no one way to live. They are also a type of witch. This article is for the beginner who wants to become a Hedge Witch. Let’s explore the essential steps to become the real hedge witch!

    1. What is a Hedge Witch? 

    A Hedge Witch is a private practitioner of the herbal arts including both medicinal and spiritual. He/She is the person you call when you develop a rash or get a toothache, and the doctor or dentist is unavailable. He/She is the person anyone consults when strange things go bump in the night, or anyone is certain that someone just gave you the evil eyes.

    Hedge Witch’s cupboard contains the remedy for what ails you - physical and spiritual. He/She does not follow the tenets of any sect or organized religion. 

    2. The purposes of a Hedge Witch

    There are some purposes of the Hedge Witch. Hedge witches are the modern version of the village healer, wise woman, or shaman from the old days.

    They learn how to travel into the other realms to gain spiritual knowledge for others and themselves. They also learn how to use this knowledge and their knowledge of herbs to heal, protect, and advise others in need. A Hedge Witch acts as a mediator between the human world and the spirit world. 

    3. How to become a Hedge Witch


    So many people don’t want to hear how important meditation is. Meditation gives people the ability to turn off our busy, mundane minds and reach out with our souls to connect with the spiritual world. It is in this “ alpha state”, where people be able to receive vision and massages from the goods and spirits, clear blockages in our chakras, energy fields and travel to other realms on spiritual missions.


    Just as important as meditation is the ability to dream. Can’t remember your dreams? Start by keeping a dream journal. Set it on your nightstand and every morning when you wake up, write down anything you remember from that night. Even if its just bits and pieces of dreams or only feelings. The hedge witch who meditates also dreams easily and vice versa – dreams and meditation are connected, after all.


    Along the same lines as meditation is the ability to go into a trance. The hedge witch will learn the ability to put on shamanic drumming and switch his or her mind into the trance-state. This is pretty much like entering the alpha state of mind using a mental trigger, so to speak. Some say a difference between trance and meditation is that trance is deeper. Many people believe that meditation can take you into a deep trance if you allow it, but getting into a trance using shamanic drumming or dancing is also achievable with practice. Try different things – dancing, shamanic music of different kinds, etc. and see what puts you into that open mind where your soul journeys or you acquire strong visions,…


    Most people believe you can learn how to become a hedge witch by learning and working with herbs. This is not the main practice in being a hedge witch. Hedge Witch use herb to enhance their practice. Hedge witches learn which herbs are made into teas before bed to induce dreaming.

    Genius Loci

    Hedge witches are often solitary witches with a deep love and reverence for their environment. This means they get outside, they work with the plants and trees in their local area, and they get to know the wildlife on a personal, soul-level. Connecting with the genius loci (spirits of place) is an essential part of learning how to become a hedge witch. So get to know your local spirits – the trees, plants, rivers, oceans, mountains, hills, animals, and insects.


    The hedge witch can shapeshift. Shapeshifting is a shamanic skill dating back thousands of years and was performed by witches for centuries. During the Dark Ages, witches confessed to being shapeshifters to perform their magic. Shapeshifting is also a way to journey into the other realms in disguise and protected from other beings who could do you harm.
