Spells


Some people invoke deities in spells. This has a rich history, mostly in folk magic and in Wicca.

In folk magic, Jesus and Mary are usually invoked as well as the occasional saint. My theory is so that this meant it wasn’t witchcraft if biblical personages were involved. Wiccans usually invoke pagan deities of the pantheon they follow, or if no pantheon is followed they invoke the deity best suited to the spell.

I am one of those people who do not invoke deities in spells. I prefer the magic to be all mine and just because you invoke a deity, there is no rule saying that the deity has to respond.

Either way is equally valid and it is up to the practitioner to decide which one to use. It may be the one you feel most comfortable with, the one that gives you the best results or any other reason.

    I completely agree. I feel that Magic is about intent, belief, and faith, so whether you invoke a deity or not, whatever gets your spell to the end result is what truly matters! Wonderful blog, consider me a follower! 😀 Jamy
