Here's a few suggestions for the best experience for all.

  1. Please keep your questions on topic. (The topic is witchcraft and magick.)
  2. Please do not ask questions along the lines of "Is there a spell for this?" The answer is yes; there is a spell for just about every purpose. (Note: You can contact Dawn directly for help with this.)
  3. Please do not ask overly personal questions or include the real names of other people in your questions. These will be deleted without further consideration. If your question is personal, you may wish to contact Dawn directly.
  4. This is not the free psychic network. Please do not ask for predictions or readings. Questions of this nature will be deleted.
  5. Please search keywords related to your topic on the Witchipedia (search is in the upper right hand corner), peruse our glossary and look through other questions on this page before asking your question. It may have already been answered.
  6. This is not the classified section. We don't have a classified section. I suggest http://www.witchvox.com . If you are looking to connect with folks, that's the place to go.
  7. Please restrict your punctuation to the grammatically required minimum. The number of exclamation points and question marks you can manage to fit into a title or paragraph is not proportional to the speed or accuracy of our response.

Thoughts on first altar set up.

For a while now I have been thinking of setting up a altar.

My question is more of a what is your constructive opinion on this set up.

I would like to honor Venus and Mercury.  The plan is to have a cloth on which there would be the 4 elements in each respective direction. A candle for male and female. Venus and correspondence on female side and same with Mercury. Then add wand, chalice, incence and salt water.

Being a noob/Neophyte, please share thoughts in simple terms I won't be offended.

I was unsure if having two gods on one altar would cause conflict??? But have same dad (Jupiter) and are different genders.

My fiancé' family is cleaning out a home that his grandmother was renting out. The former renter died in the home of overdose. His mother found bags with dirt and stones in them, of which we do not know the exact contents or purpose of as we were not there when she disposed of them. She opened the bags and poured them into the trash. We also found a good amount of cinnamon sticks, dill weed and seed, and whole cloves. There was also what seemed to be an altar at the back of one of the cabinets that consisted of a small pitcher, cup, and tray with sea shells.

What do I do about after-spell activity?

(0 replies)

I am comfortable with spell casting and though I've not done this one before, I'm sure I did it right. I cast a seemingly successful protection/reversal spell. I planned to bury the remains in the back yard so I put them in a box to carry them out. An audible tapping began in the box. At first I assumed it was a settling sound but it continued in a way I can't explain. I didn't know what to do. It honestly frightened me because I have been dealing with some serious negativity and felt it might be trying to stay in some way. I opted to tape the box until I could find out if I should handle it differently. On one side of the box it went fine. On the other, it would accept the tape then appear to "jump" open. Again I can't explain. I finally succeeded in getting it taped closed and noticed a small chunk cut out of my finger bleeding profusely. It was frightening so I put the box on the back porch and saged the house so much I set off the smoke alarms. Now I'm questioning what I'm dealing with and what to do about it. I'm a solitary practitioner so I have no one to ask and I'm not finding a similar occurrence in books or threads. Does anyone share a similar experience or have any wisdom to share about this? Thank you!
