    Days of Power

    Dedication

    Deosil

    Divination

    Dowsing

    Drawing Down the Moon





    DAYS OF POWER:

    Although usually referred to as Sabbats, these are other days throughout the year that can be considered days of power. These days can be triggered by astrological occurrences, your birthday, a woman's menstrual cycle (also know as the Blood of the Moon), or your dedication/initiation anniversary.



    DEDICATION:

    Unlike the initiation ceremony that brings one into an order, the dedication of a Witch is that process where the individual accepts the Craft as their path, and vows to study and learn all that is necessary to reach adeptship in a given tradition. In a dedication, you consciously prepare yourself to accept something new into your life and stick with it, regardless of the highs and lows this action may produce.



    DEOSIL:

    Clockwise movement. Most rituals and ceremonies, even spells, call for deosil movement at some point in their construction.



    DIVINATION:

    The art of using magickal tools and symbols to gather information from the Collective unconscious on the nature of people, places, things, and events in the past, present and future.



    DOWSING:

    The art/science of using a pendulum or stick to find the actual location of a person, place, thing or element. Dowsing can also be used to answer yes or not questions. and quite a science has developed by holding a pendulum over a specially designed chart to answer specific questions on life patterns.



    DRAWING DOWN THE MOON: A ritual used during the Full Moon by Witches to empower themselves and unite their essence with a particular deity, usually the Goddess
