Closening the Ties That Bind

You can further empower your friendship amulets by knotting them in accordance with the laws of magic. If the cord binding your bags is knotted nine sacred times, you will have increased greatly the power of the spell. Nine is the number of idealism, altruism, generosity, tolerance, and sacrifice. Here is a rhyme to recite as you bind:

By knot of one, the spell is begun.
By knot of two, it comes true.
By knot of three, so mote it be.
By knot of four, ’tis strengthened more.
By knot of five, the magic is alive. 
By knot of six, this spell shall I fix.
By knot of seven, the planets in heaven.
By knot of eight, I have sealed my fate.
By knot of nine, this work is divine.
So shall it be.
 

You can also make a magic knotted cord to tie around a paper scroll. On the paper might be a written desire, a spell, or a wish expressed to a friend in a letter.

Tie the Knot of True Love

If you are truly interested in long-term love, this spell is for you. This love spell may not actually result in a proposal and marriage, but the rings are a powerful symbol to help bring true love your way. You’ll need:

  • White rope
  • 1 fresh red rose, with stem
  • 2 plain gold rings (Rings in a gold color are fine) 
  •  Fine white sand (easily available at a craft store)

You can use thick yarn instead of the rope, but string just won’t do. Tie a knot in the center of the rope around the stem of the rose. Slide the two rings down the two ends of the rope up to the knot, then tie the rope again to secure them.

The Maypole – Selvedge Magazine 

 

Argh! Again?

All right, folks. This shouldn't need to be said, but apparently it does. Think of it as a friendly reminder.

Remember, this is a Maypole we're dancing here. It's something that people do together. It's its own kind of magic, a powerful magic that you do with other people. You can't dance a Maypole by yourself.

What we are not doing is some all-by-your-lonesome-in-the-back-bedroom Silver Ravenwolf-y cord magic shite, OK? This is way bigger than that. You do not stop the dance to [voice goes all sing-songy] “tie off your spell with a magic knot” when you get to the end of your ribbon. You do not. When you get to the end of your ribbon, you let go and you get out of the effing way, OK?

Beltane, folks. This is sex, not a wank. Sex. We do it together. Remember?

[Aside, mutters under breath.]

Stopping the dance. Ye gawds. What do they teach them in witch school these days?

OK folks, let's take it from the top.  I've written us a new verse for Hal an Tow, just to help us remember.

One-two-three, and...

Knot Magic

Long stems of grass really lend themselves to knot magic but you can also use thin stems of plants such is ivy or even twine, string or ribbon.
