The Pentagram NewsletterWritten by Naya Aerodiode
I recently found some scanned copies of The Pentagram, a privately-circulated newsletter from the mid-1960's that was published in Britain. Included in these newsletters are poetry, articles, spells, and classifieds. Regrettably, the scans are a bit hard to read in some places, but don't let that stop you from exploring these fascinating documents which give us a glimpse into the history of the practice of modern Witchcraft.

I weave the forces of nature. I speak to the spirits. I enchant the future and divine the unknown. I dance in the moonlight and sing to the stars. I am a witch.
thesilverspiral: @DarkMoonCoven Yeah, the "Charmed" thing was just a plot device to keep the show from being over in two episodes.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea http://t.co/mlUouHqAxx I actually wrote an article on the topic.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea ....because at least you won't be working against yourself.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea Spellwork on other people is tricky. I find that it's best to do magick that affects yourself first (more)...
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea Ohhh, other people. It's your will working against theirs & they might want things to stay the way they are more than change.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea I am trying to be careful here, because I don't know your situation. I'm speaking in very broad generalities.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea It's not about asking for something. It's about creating something.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea I consider spellwork to be about creating the reality you want on the astral plane so that reality becomes real on the physical.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea And now I run into a brick wall because I don't know specifics. However, your use of the word, "Requested," might be a tip-off.
thesilverspiral: @KathrynmHogan I think so too! If I make good money at my business, then I have more money to spend on others' business. It is good for all.
thesilverspiral: @Loriekay1 @GreenEyedLilo I've met some seriously selfish people, who actually would try to disempower others to build themselves up.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea And if a certain condition is met, I consider it successful. That has to be open enough for a lot of possibility of success, tho'.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea If the need for the spell is gone, then was it resolved? When I do spellwork, I am careful to define what "success" is.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea Write down notes about what you did including timing, the exact wording of your magick, etc. Test it.
thesilverspiral: @GreenEyedLilo Yes, that exactly!
thesilverspiral: @Loriekay1 Telling one it's "evil" to want to work for their own gain means that you can convince them to work for your own cause instead.
thesilverspiral: @MamaGaea Could be any number of reasons. Do you keep logs or other records of your spellwork?
thesilverspiral: If anyone tells you that you shouldn't cast #magick for personal gain, they most likely want to exert control over you. Avoid them.
thesilverspiral: Should you cast #magick for personal gain? Well, what other reason is there? Even altruism can make your heart feel good - a personal gain.
