The Witch's Name Game! Ritual included

The Witches Name Game!  Ritual included!

Witches are the masters of the alter ego, among other things. What's in a name? For witches it is everything. We know that if we give a name to something it potentially takes form, gains power, and has a life of it's own. I recently received a question about the witches name or a magickal name. The client also asked to go about finding out that name. My response is have fun looking!

There are many ways to go about finding your witch name or magickal name. You can use numerology by calculating various names and seeing if matches your birth number. To do this you need a numerology chart and your birthday. In the chart each letter is assigned a number. You add them up and if you get a double number like 10 the two numbers are isolated and counted, to give you a single digit. After you have done that you can add the numbers of your birthday together. Again you will get a double digit. Isolate the numbers and add them together. The difference with your birthday is that you are calculating what some refer to as a destiny number or birth number. If the number from your birth number and name number match it's probably a pretty good fit! 
What about if I really like a name and they don't match? Well if your anal OCD self can handle it, take it! If things in your life have to be orderly and matching (Capricorn's....) then adjust, add, or take away letters to make it so. See calculation examples below. 

9 7 1 5    9+7+1+5 =22   ----> 2+2=4 My name number is 4

1 + 3 + 9 + 9 + 1 + 5 + 3 = 31 ----> 3+1 = 4

Calculating your birth number is as simple as doing the same process as above, except using your full numeric birthday! Isolating the digits into single digits and adding them together to get a single digit! I am not putting my birthday on here, but you guys get the jist. Btw if you didn't figure it out, my birth number is a 4... lol

Now you will notice that they match. Keep in mind that my name has a story behind it. Also the name number matches my birth number. 

You may do a ritual like the one that follows.
Gather together a blue candle, a representation of each of the elements, and a set of binoculars. They don't have to be real, but should be tangible. 
Assemble all the items on the altar before you and ground and center. If you cast circle normally this is a good time to do that, or you don't have to it's up to you. In this ritual you are not raising energy for magick. You are simply on a quest. 
After you have done that you will mark off little dashes in the candle to symbolize 7 days and you will light the candle. Keep in mind to allow the candle to burn to only that mark you put in the candle. It would be best to have a larger taper for this ritual. 
Focus on the candle and clear your mind. 

Speak these words of power: 
Adoro te devote, latens Deitas,
Quæ sub his figuris vere latitas;
Tibi se cor meum totum subjicit,
Quia te contemplans totum deficit.
Visus, tactus, gustus in te fallitur,
Sed auditu solo tuto creditur.
Virtutes nominant me in septem diebus.

Sit and think about the ritual and the task you are doing. If any names pop into your mind simply write them down. You are not choosing one until the seventh day. Experiment with different names and see what you come up with. Be ready for a trippy seven days! Through each of the seven days keep everything on the altar in tact and in a place that doesn't have a lot of traffic and has privacy. Be sure to do the ritual same time for each day. It's best to do this starting at the New Moon. 

Why is this all so important? Your ritual name is you alter ego at ritual. It's special and makes you unique to the gods and the community of witches. The most important thing to remember is that this is the ultimate tool in regards to ritual consciousness. Once you put this hat on your in the zone and it's time to do work. So you see how powerful a name is? This is why witches don't name bad shit. 
The last point I want to make is that your name doesn't have to be private, though many people do. Since I run a business in this market, I use my witch name simply cause I love it and it goes with the theme. Finally, I know that when I am referred to Lord Auriael I am at work. Happy questing!

Uranus Retrograde Steer into the Energy of Personal Awareness July 26 - Dec 25th 2015

Uranus Retrograde

Ah Uranus, the planet that gives us a fresh perspective and demands us to expand our minds like the sky. Uranus is the equivalent to the Roman Sky God Caelis. This planet when retrograde focuses its energy on making us release what is toxic in our lives, and therefore become expansive like the sky. The energy of this planet can be chaotic, fast moving, and rebellious, thus it is the modern ruler of Aquarius. This planet allows us to have a fresh perspective on old, stagnant, present situations in our lives. In order to bring resolve to these situations, Uranus will direct you to which sacrifices to make as well as the right timing. The big picture of your life is what Uranus will force you to see. Uranus will first show you your personal bigger picture, and then the avenues to achieve that picture. Be prepared for some very deep thinking and highly introspective thoughts. Philosophical thoughts may be on the rise as well! All of these leading to an epiphany! "By George, I think he's got it!" Beware of living through impulse during this time. As much as you want to rebel under this energy, take the time to garner patience. This is an energy that demands you look at the reality of your life. Allow the lessons to unfold before you so that you can learn them once and for all!
