MAGIC WITH A ‘K’ (TYPES OF MAGICK)

WITCHY WEDNESDAY

December 9, 2020

As we know from last week’s article, witchcraft can be a religion or practice, but no matter how it’s used, magick will always be involved. The confusing thing about magick is how many types there are and how to use each type. Certainly, I’ll explain each in detail another time, but here’s a brief overview!

 

What is magick?

 

Magick is the science and art of causing change with willpower. This is what being a witch is all about. There are many different types and uses for magick, so here’s a few:

 

  • Blood magick- Used in extreme cases only, should not be taken lightly, entertains the idea that blood represents many things and can be used to perfect any ritual/spell 
  • Kitchen magick- Cooking/baking used to manifest wanted outcomes
  • Black magick- Involves hexing, cursing, necromancy, summoning, etc.
  • White magick- Involves blessing, cleansing, nature, etc.
  • Contagious magick- magick that affects a person through something once connected with them (hair, jewelry, clothes, etc.)
  • Sympathetic magick- voodoo dolls, puppets, anything that resembles the person being affected used to control or influence them

These are not all the types of magick used in witchcraft, they are just the most common. I do not recommend that every witch test out every type of magick, nor do I agree with every type of magick. 

 

That is the beauty of this community. If you don’t wish to impose harm on others, you don’t have to. If you think someone deserves a little hex every now and then, it is in your power to do so (with the right tools and spells, of course).

 

Quick fun fact:

 

The reason why witches spell ‘magic’ with a ‘k’ is because of Aleister Crowley. He was a known English occultist who began spelling magic with k so it wouldn’t be confused with performed stage magic. After that, I suppose the witch community liked it as well and decided to keep spelling it that way!

 

Catch up with Witchy Wednesday next week to understand the different tools of witchcraft, and how to use them.
