What Are Spells?
There is a clear difference between spells and rituals.
'Spell' tends to be the term used for the less
formal folk magick that, unlike ceremonial magick, is not so rigid about such things as circle casting
and the use of specific tools, though it may be based in forms and use words that date back hundreds
Our kitchen witch ancestors swept clean their magical areas and danced in circles under the
Moon or round sacred fires on one of the old festivals to bring fertility to land and people, but most of
their magick was done by firelight or the light of smoking tallow candles in a cramped living room or
in muddy fields.
It is a serious mistake to regard informal spells as inferior to the kind of magick in which the
appropriate planetary hour is carefully chosen, incense is burned,
the tools laid out in the correct
position and the names of all the archangels recited without a mistake. Both have a place and even if
there were an actual deity watching the minutiae of the ritual, he or she
would be less interested in
whether a correct elemental pentagram was drawn than if the intent and the heart were pure and the
need was genuine.
