    How To Make Your Own Runes

    You've probably seen the pre-made Runes that one can buy at any occult store or your local book store. That is the easy way of getting your own runes. The traditional way is to get small stones/pebbles and use them with the runic symbol carved or inked onto the stone/pebble. Another is to use bits of wood and cut them into the desired shape, then ink or carve in the runic symbol. However, my favorite method is to go the bluffs and gather up bags of natural clay and use this clay to form my runes and other tools. You can also use clay bought at a craft store its almost as good.

    Making Clay Runes

    Materials Needed:
    • Clay (Red, Natural or Artificial)
    • Pen/Pencil
    • Knife
    • Marker (Red or Black)
    • Cloth or Leather

    Once you've gotten the clay, take the time to mold the clay into the form you wish your runes to look, then leave then in the shade for 5 to 8 hours, I know your saying, why this? Well I can't tell you, I've no idea, this is what my grandmother did and has been done for generations.

    When you return the clay should be still slightly damp but not so damp that it falls apart or is mushy, it should be almost hard at the outer edges, with the center still a bit pliable. The center is where you will be carving the runic symbol.

    Now take a clay tablet that you've molded, and using either a pen, pencil or a knife carve into the Talbot the specific rune that it is to be, remember to think of what this rune will represent and infuse it with that form of energy. e.g.: When carving the runic symbol for protection, envision it being strong, and guarding you against harm, and so on and so forth.

    Once each tablet has been carved with its symbol, leave it to dry either in the direct sun or near the stove or other hot surface, until hard. This process depending on the clay used can take up to two weeks to harden properly.

    Once your Runes are hardened, take a marker and ink in the symbol if you so choose, this is optional, many people like the natural look, but when reading the runes often inking them in is advisable. My Grandmother actually use to make natural dyes from flowers, berries, bark, herbs and other natural dying agents. She would dye each rune a different color according to its usage; like green for health, purple for power, yellow for light and inner strength, and various other colors. I only suggest the Black or Red marker as a simple way of marking you runes to read. You can of course use different colored markers to mark each rune, according to its color orientation or purpose, the choice is up to you.

    The last step is to construct a pouch to which you will keep these runes, use either leather or cloth to construct this pouch. Remember Natural un-dyed leather or cloth is best, if using synthetic materials then use your own judgment. If in doubt, get a scarf/bandana and use that as the carrying bag for your runes.

    That's all there is to it basically.

    Happy Rune Making

    5th Moon Day info:

    Symbols: Unicorn.
    Characteristics: Day of duty and defending of principles, beliefs and ideals. Day when the energy is increasing, we have to focus on our plans, and can achieve goals without obstacles. All new knowledge we receive today, as well as the food we eat, everything is absorbed fully. Mostly positive, lucky and favorable day.

    Recommendations: Today we have to be creatively active, and make effort to to achieve what we want. We can successfully defend someone or something, people or ideas. The food we eat is fully transformed into physical and astral energies. Dairy (cottage cheese especially) is recommended.

    Precautions: Fasting should be avoided, as well as overeating. Sex is not recommended.

    Wiccaning Ceremony – Newborn Baby Welcoming Ritual
    I've been reading the book Solitary Witch by Silver Ravenwolf. I came across a Welcoming ritual for a newborn baby and I really loved it so I thought I would share. icon smile Our Facebook RSS I thought the idea of making a baby blanket with all the different ribbons on it was a beautiful idea.

    Wiccaning Ceremony
    A wiccaning/saining ritual welcomes a newborn into the "world family," providing protection for the infant as he or she grows in the material world. A wiccaning ceremony can be done soon after the child is born or can occur later in the year. Sometimes when parents join the Craft they ask the high priest or priestess to perform a wiccaning ceremony for children anywhere from birth to ten years old. You may live in a household where your mom and dad would be delighted if you do a wiccaning for your new sibling. If this is the case, here is a simple ritual that the family can do.
    SUPPLIES: General altar setup of the four elements; illuminator candles; a new baby blanket, and eight thirteen-inch-longribbons. Carefully sew the ribbons onto the blanket, thinking of what they stand for as you sew. Each ribbon's color stands for a special gift:
    White: The gift of spiritual success and free will, and the purification of Spirit.
    Silver: The gift of psychism and the love of the Goddess.
    Blue: The gift of communications and intelligence
    Green: The gift of healing and attunement with nature.
    Yellow: The gift that all needs will be met in a positive way and that joy be a constant companion.
    Gold: The gift of wisdom and discernment.
    Red: The gift of communication with your guardian.
    Choose the ritual format in which you feel your family would be most comfortable.
    INSTRUCTIONS: Cleanse the area with the four elements. Stack any physical gifts for the baby by the altar. At the core of the ritual, bless the baby with holy water (just a touch), saying:
    May you be cleansed, consecrated, and regenerated
    in the name of our Lord and Lady (or Spirit).
    May your feet always walk the path of love
    and enlightenment. So mote it be.
    Then pass the four elements over the baby, asking each for love and empowerment in his or her forthcoming life.
    Place the blanket around the baby saying:
    Welcome back, little one!
    May the Mother's blessings shower thee
    with the love of family and friends
    by my hand on your head I empower thee
    in this Circle that never ends
    I give you these gifts of life
    and enchantment–
    Touch each ribbon as you repeat the gift, then hold your hands over the baby and envision all the gifts coalescing into a ball of light that surrounds the baby. Draw an equal-armed cross over the baby, saying:
    These gifts are yours to keep or to discard
    when you come of age to understand them.
    May you use them wisely. So mote it be
    If there are other gifts to be given to the baby, do so now, then close the ritual in the normal way.

    “Dancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind; dancing is when you tear your heart out and rise out of your body to hang suspended between the worlds.”
