Egypt

For protection and blessings by the goddess Bast, of yourself and your cat pets, set up an altar with cat pictures and/or statues. These pictures and statues can be of any kind of cat, domestic or wild. Place a picture of yourself, your family, and some of your cats there also. Have two green candles on the altar. This ritual can be performed by itself or as part of a cast circle ritual.

Note: This ritual also calls for a sistrum, which is a sort of rattle made of metal, and deeply associated with the goddess Bast and Egyptian magick. If you don’t have one, use a bell or small wind chimes instead.

To begin the ritual, take the sistrum and slowly dance or walk around the ritual area, shaking the sistrum as you go. Begin and end in the East and move clockwise. Chant as you go:

Joy comes from Bast, the Lady of Cats
The goddess loves and protects all animals.
As a daughter/son of Bast, I call upon her
To pour out her blessings.

Return to the altar and shake the sistrum while you say:

Hail, Bast, Lady of Cats.
Hail, Goddess of earthly delights.
Teach me to rejoice in the being that I am.
Teach me to love and be happy.

If you have pictures of your cats, look at them now with love and happiness. If you don’t have pictures, call up their images mentally. Call each cat by name as if presenting him/her to the goddess. Be alert to the atmosphere around you, for you will very likely experience the presence of the goddess in some manner.

When you have finished, take the sistrum and go to the East. Shake the sistrum five times. Say:

The ears of Bast are sensitive
to every word of harm sent against me and my pets.
My cats and I are protected.

To to the South, shake the sistrum five times and say:

The claws of Bast are sharp in my defence.
My cats and I are protected.

Move to the West. Shake the sistrum five times. Say:

The teeth of Bast are bared to evil-doers.
My cats and I are protected.

Finally, go to the North and shake the sistrum five times. Say:

The eyes of Bast can see through darkness.
Nothing escapes her notice.
My cats and I are protected.

Return to the altar. Shake the sistrum three times. Say:

Listen well, all those who would harm me and mine.
Here is erected a mighty fortress, an unbreakable shield.
You cannot enter here. Your evil thoughts return to you.
The gate is locked against you.

Visualize a green light filling the room, caressing you and the pictures of your cats. Don’t be surprised if your cats themselves enter the room to soak up this blessing.

Lovely Cat-Goddess, I thank you for your blessings.
Keep us in safety, good health, and happiness.
Protect my little ones wherever they may roam.

Blow a kiss to the goddess and extinguish the candles. As a special treat, both to Bast and to your cats, present your pets with a catnip toy to play with.

If anyone in the home should fall sick, take a crystal bowl filled with well-water and wash the hands and the face of the patient with it. Then, carry it to the garden door, and call for the cat of the household. When she appears, say to her:

Cat spirit, bright as sixpence,
Chase the devil a long long distance.
His soul I hold in these drops of water ~
May he be routed before next moon’s quarter.

Then you must throw the water away onto the garden, so that it passes over the cat but does not fall on her. She will, as likely as not, run away as if in pursuit of some spirit, and for this you must thank her three times over by using her magickal name.

In throwing the water over her to the ground, you have created the magickal veil of Isis, which summons the demon of the illness and draws it away from your loved one so that the cat may carry it away from the house.

Before the next moon’s quarter, that is, before a week has passed away, the one who has fallen sick should be on the mend.

From Catspells

Ma’at is the Egyptian goddess of justice and fairness, whose symbol is an ostrich feather. In mythology, Ma’at’s feather was used to weigh against mortal hearts in the Hall of Justice to determine their fate in the afterlife.

Is there an issue in your life at the moment that can benefit from the attention of Ma’at, requiring more equity? For this spell you will need a feather and a blue candle. On the candle, engrave the symbol of a feather and the name of Ma’at. If you have any items that relate to the injustice, such as a letter, place them on your altar. Light the candle and say:

There is a situation that seems unfair,
I look for an outcome that harms none.
Ma’at, you have a right to effect what you deem is fair
To ensure that order and justice are done.

From: A Witches Perspective

The ancient Egyptians used this powerful meditation to infuse their bodies with light. Each body part was dedicated to a divinity who directed the flow of life energy. This meditation may be recited upon waking while standing in an eastern window facing the sun, or before sleeping while lying in repose. After deep relaxation, begin naming the parts of your body that you dedicate to the Divine:

My head is the head of Seshat,
filling with thoughts of the power of the Divine, remembering my soul’s purpose.

My face is the face of Nefertum,
the golden child arising above chaos in beauty.

My eyes are the eyes of Hathor
shining in the darkness. I see love and joy in all things.

My ears are the ears of Anubis,
hearing the messages of the Divine.

My nose and longs are the nose and lungs of Shu,
receiving fresh breezes that fill me with creative life energy.

My throat is the throat of Meret,
it’s words are gentle songs.

My lips are the lips of Mut.
What touches them receives my blessing and thankfulness.

My teeth are the teeth of Serket,
strong and nurturing.

My neck is the neck of the Renenutet,
which supports me and connects my intellectual, emotional, and physical bodies.

My right (or dominant) hand is the hand of Khnum,
endlessly creative, giving life to things of beauty.

My left (or nondominant) hand is the hand of Anket,
receiving abundance from the bounty of the world.

My forearms are the foreamrs of Neith,
who weaves the destiny of one humankind.

My shoulders are those of Wadjet,
powerful, healing, and strong.

My chest and rib cage are those of Tefnut,
containing and protecting the delicate inner parts of myself.

My heart is the heart of Ma’at,
living in truth and keeping my life in balance.

My backbone is the backbone of Seth,
the foundation of the world.

My womb is the womb of Isis.
(alternatively)
My phallus is the phallus of Osiris.

My reins are the reins of Satis,
receiving abundantly what is needed and eliminating what is not.

My belly and back are the belly and back of Sekhmet,
source of my spiritual fire and power.

My hips and legs are those of Nut,
carrying me safely through the day and night.
Wherever I need to be, there I find myself

My feet are the feet of Ptah,
a firm foundation for all of myself.

My fingers are those of Orion and Sirius,
sparkling and brilliant, creating anew, rebuilding, tearing down, heralding new life.

My bones are the bones of all the living gods and goddesses,
the living Uraei that protects and energizes and life to its spiritual source.

There is no member of my body that is not the member of a divine being. My body knows what it needs to give and to receive. Thoth and Isis shield my body wholly, filling it with energy and radiating love. I am shining as Ra and Raet day by day. These are the words of power that live forever. As I rise and walk on earth, so do I rise and walk always in the realm of heaven, under the nurturing care and the divine power of the gods and goddesses.

Tracking The Moon
Being A Witch

We should educate people that ‘Witch’ is not evil but ancient and positive. The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life.
