The altar is often considered a personal place where practitioners put their ritual items. Some practitioners may keep various religious items upon the altar, or they may use the altar and the items during their religious workings. According to Scott Cunningham, a popular Wiccan author, the left side of the altar should be considered the Goddess area; feminine or yonic symbols such as bowls and chalices, as well as Goddess representations and statues should be placed on the left. [2] The right side is designated for the God; phallic symbols such as the athame and the wand are placed to the right side, as well as God statuary and his candle.[3] The left and right associations vary according to personal preference, but the center area is almost always considered the "both" area, or the working area. In the center of the altar are kept the main symbols of the Wiccan faith, such as the pentacle.

This month @the.witches.moon focuses on Lammas, the celebration of the first grain harvest of the year. This holy day is an especially important event in the lives of people who live off the land ... Pagan, Christian, or otherwise. Grains have always been a staple food; they meant the difference between a healthy winter and a slow death. Christians would bring their first loaves to the church, sometimes to be used as the sacramental offering, and the Church would bless the fields on Lammas day. Pagans celebrate Lammas by thanking the grain God and Earth Goddess, by feasting, and by weaving icons out of the stalks: corn dollies or cornucopia (horns of plenty).
Each box comes with a hand picked tarot card this month’s card featured an affirmation which I took to heart and I hope you do as well. Some of my favorites from this box are the enchanted blooming cedar roses. I have put these beautiful roses on my summer altar. Cedar is a representation of light and caring energy which symbolizes protection, gathering, and strength. I would highly recommend @the.witches.moon to any level practitioner of magical. Blessed be

@the.witches.moon continues to amazing me with these amazingly crafted boxes. This month focuses on the elemental spirits and magick of faeries. Elemental spirits are spirits associated with each of the four elements. They were first described in alchemical works written by Paracelsus in the 16th century. The names of the spirit creatures vary by tradition but the most common are: Earth elementals - gnomes, Water elementals - undines or nymphs, Air elementals - sylphs, Fire elementals - salamanders. The enchanted maiden spirit box is by far my favorite piece in this box, it beams a charge of high energy and is finely crafted. I also have been carrying the rose quartz faerie calling stone (shown closer in the last image) with me since I received it. This is more commonly called a worry stone and is used to release unwanted energy and purely charge your aura. I would highly recommend @the.witches.moon to any practitioner of magick as they help me with my practices so greatly and teach me valuable information about the craft every month

Thank you @boxbewitched for this gift! This box is so fun!! I love the combination of tools for the craft such as the calamus root, which I have already used for a binding spell, and the cute home items like the ouija board soap! My favorite has to be the healing gemstone tree which I have placed on my altar. I really love this box because they have some inexpensive options which i have found most subscription services don’t. Blessed be!

Some Wiccans arrange their altars to represent all four elements and directions.[5][6] In the North the earth element is represented; in the east is air, in the south is fire, and in the west water. These elements can be represented in various ways, but generally do not vary in elemental and directional correspondences. When placing items on an altar or when "calling on the elements" (a practice involving inviting the elements to be a part of the circle and lend their power) a practitioner will move deosil (clockwise or sunwise) and when dismissing the elements they will move widdershins (counter-clockwise).

This month @the.witches.moon has focused on one of my favorite aspects in wicca; nature. The reason I was first so drawn into Wicca is because i wanted to feel more connect with the earth and all its glory and magical properties. This box contains one of my new favorite books; The Green Witch by Arin Murphy-Hiscock. This book is an excellent resource to obtain more knowledge about nature and its energy. Another thing I am in awe with is the filigree incense disk, shown in the second image. I always light incense during my meditation to set the mood and @the.witches.moon always provides the best scents. I would highly recommend this subscription service to any practitioners of magick. Blessed be

@witchcasketuk has blessed me with beautiful gifts to share. I particularly feel in love with their subscription service because of the attention to detail put throughout this box. Every item has a detailed description card and suggested uses. This box caters towards any level practitioner of magick however I believe it would be especially helpful for beginners in the craft! My favorite thing in this box is in the first image, the affirmation deck. These cards when said aloud bring a feeling of power and confidence into the room. I also love the self love ritual kit shown in the second image. A simple but effective way to embrace loving ones self. I would highly recommend @witchcasketuk to any practitioner of magick and I am so happy to have discovered their business. Blessed be

Thank you so much to @the.witches.moon for this beautiful box. Runes are one of my favorite tools for divination and readings. Here is a simple one stone reading technique: This type of reading is the simpler version and requires just a single rune stone for a reading. You should place all rune stones in a bag. And here’s what you should do:
Clear your mind. Focus on the questions you want answers to.
Hold the bag of rune stones in your receptive hand. With the fingers of your receptive hand, mix up the stones in the bag. Whichever way you wish to ask the question, go ahead and do it. It should go like this, ask your question and take a rune stone from the bag. Read the symbol written on the stone. That answers your question. If you need further clarification, take another stone from the bag and read the symbol on it. If you find that you still need clarification, it might be time to place the stone back in the bag and reshuffle them as you rephrase your question. Thank you again for everything in this wonderful subscription service and I would highly recommend @thewitchesbox to any practitioner of magick

A besom broom is the kind of broom traditionally associated with witches, and is one of the tools commonly used in the practice of modern Wicca. It is a traditionally-constructed broom made of a bundle of twigs tied to a central stouter wooden pole. In the Middle Ages, witches would prepare a “flying ointment” (also known as “green ointment”) to aid them in their journey, the recipes for which usually had a base of either Belladonna (Nightshade) or Mandragora, both highly psychoactive drugs producing visions and encouraging astral projection, mixed with clove oil (which is known best for its anaesthetic properties). Thus, the generally accepted theory about the origins of witches flying on brooms is based in a ritual involving a psychoactive drug trip: as the ointment was rubbed all over the body using the broom (particularly on the forehead, wrists, hands, feet, under the arms or between the legs), it gave a sensation of flying. The witches mounted broomsticks and would leap around the fields, smeared with the flying ointment, to "teach" the crops how high to grow, and the ointment would give them imaginary "trips" and the feeling of having flown distances. Despite the association with women, the first known case of claiming to have flown on a broomstick was actually confessed by a French male witch, Guillaume Adeline, in 1453, although there are prior records of witches flying on sticks or poles or similar objects. French and German illustrations from as early as the 15th Century show witches flying on broomsticks, or sometimes on pitchforks. Warlocks, the male equivalent of witches (usually in the pejorative sense of Europe's Middle Ages), are historically often described as riding pitchforks instead of the broomsticks of witches.
