e-Witch Apprentice Course

The e-Witch Apprentice Course ..was created almost a year and a half ago..by me.. (Autumn 2011).  Here are some details that were in my blog site previously (taken off on 6th March), and now have been added as a sub-page of `Paganism & Magic’ page.  (reorganising my blog).  Look out for some exciting development about this course. We are about to do some serious development of this course 
(and offer modules 3-9 in a totally multi-media manner!).    🙂 -Mani

Wiccan laws and principles

Having written quite critically about some aspects of the Wiccan Laws, I wanted to illustrate 3 fundamental laws that nearly all wiccans accept and use in their lives. No just Wiccan, but even pagans (in general) use these..

So here’s an extract from one of the e-Witch Apprentice modules.

 “Know Thy Self

 `Know Thy Self’ is an important part of all magical work. When we work intensely in the realms of magic, we come across the energies and forces of other people – magical and non-magical, other living things, and magical or esoteric entities (spirits, guides, ghosts, fairies etc). It is easy to become so involved with those, that you can `loose’ your own identity or boundary. It is similar to have a very close relationship with another person, where you sometimes can be in danger of loosing your own identity, likes, wants, hopes by doing too much for the other person. So as well as studying magical energies, we also dedicate an equal amount (if not more) of time to knowing about our own self – our hopes, wants, fears, nightmares, and of course our skills and abilities.

An it harm none, do what you will!

 This is a very important `law’ in Wiccan communities, and it’s essence can not be impressed upon you enough! Basically, it speaks of personal responsibility, and implies that – `as long as your actions do not in any way harm others, you may do what ever you like’. This is harder to achieve than you might think!!  Our every action or intention has the possibility of impacting on, or affecting (directly or indirectly) one or more peoples’ lives around us.  We find that it is nearly impossible to take any sort of action that will not affect others.  Yet, we must strive and aspire to this moral code of Witches!

One word of warning: Do not try to use some clever logical arguments or lines of thoughts to `crack’ this code to justify your own actions. Best you can do is to acknowledge it, and aspire to it in as humble manner as possible.

The 3-fold return

 Most Wiccans & magical practitioners believe in the natural law of return – especially a 3-fold return! What this means is that whatever actions we take or energies we send out, we believe that 3 times that amount will come back to us – sooner or later (in this life!).  Any good deeds you perform selfishly has the potential to return some 3 times benefit; By the same token, if you take  actions that harm others or disrupt them, your own life may suffer similar or different kind of harm or disruptions – sooner or later, and when you least expect it! These are very similar to the Hindu principles of Karma!!”

Jupiter-Moon-Venus photo

Two days ago, I was out in the local park, doing some filming (some video tutorials for the e-witch course). And on my way back home, looked up and saw the crescent moon & venus, and a little further away the planet Jupiter.

I was able to identify them as such because the ephemeris gives planetary positions, as well as moon positions for every day. And on some occasions, when the moon moves closer to planets, it’s easy to work out which bright `dot’ is a planet and not one of the many hundreds of stars in the sky.

So here’s the Jupiter (top left)  1’5″ Taurus, and crescent moon (right) ..about 4′ Pisces and Venus ( closer to moon) at 13’37” Pisces.

Photo taken with just an ordinary digital camera, on 25th January 2012, around 5pm (GMT) from Beddington Park, South London.

You can still see these stellar objects in the night sky.

By the way, 14th March’12 is going to be very special…that’s when Jupiter and venus conjunct (9’37” Taurus).  Moon will be wanning then and in Sagittarius.  (On that day,  there is also a venus-trine-mars, venus-trine-pluto, mars-trine-jupiter…It’s going to be a very auspicious day… magically, astrologically).

ps. If you are going to use this photo, can you pls mention that it was taken by `Mani Navasothy’? Thanks.

pps. The Eclipse Magic e-workbook (with full transcript of the webinar added) is coming along..  Will be published in a few months, in time for the next set of Eclipses.  There ‘s also some info in it – magical workings, for the upcoming venus-transit of the Sun (happening on 6th June).
