A Witches' Canon Part 3: The Nice and Naughty of Operative Witchcraft

Roy H. Blunden

An Exploration of the Magic Rites and Practices of Traditional Witchcraft, both Past and Present, Nice and Naughty.

The truth is, Magic is the stuff of Witchcraft; the very life-blood that gives vibrancy in all its other aspects. We are all born with a capacity for practicing Magic, yet it is a topic that strikes fear into many for what it might actually do to them. Magic has a bad reputation, notwithstanding that it guided our ancient ancestors to initially develop the survival skills and techniques that have ultimately led to our modern-day world of science and technology. Magic means pushing the boundaries of what might just be possible. It implies change and therefore unsanctioned Magic has always been seen as a threat to the status quo. Nevertheless, it is a fascinating discipline; exploring, developing, and expanding one's own mental powers. It entails a quest. From the Magic of Love and Sex to Witcherie with a Purpose demands skill, determination, and ability. From Astral Projection to Psychic Protection; from Magical Healing to communicating with spiritual entities from the Astral; the practice of Traditional Witchcraft demands a knowledge of Apies Magic, both the Nice and the Naughty; but best not the practice of its really naughty aspects.

A Witches' Canon, Part 1, provides a fact-based referenced guide for those wishing to further explore the Religion and Celebratory Rituals of Traditional Wicca.

A Witches' Canon, Part 2, has been written to provide a practical, referenced guide to the social aspects of Traditional Wicca; of Coven Organization, Initiations, Rites, and Rituals.

A Witches' Canon, Part 3, is a fact-based referenced guide to the practice of Magical Witchcraft, both nice and naughty.

But then, if it isn't fun, then it ain't worth doing.

About the Author

Blunden, Roy H.: - "Roy H. Blunden - 60 years of Wicca

ROY H. BLUNDEN grew up in Britain during WW II, surviving the London-area Blitz, V-1 flying bombs and V-2 Rockets. Caught up in the revival of modern Wicca, he has been deeply absorbed in the search for the origins and meanings of the complex symbolism used to express Wicca as a transcendental religious faith. Roy practices the Craft as originally taught by "Old" Gerald Gardner, with emphasis on the spiritual and operative aspects of Wicca, and of the history of Witchcraft. Roy has practised as a solitary Witch and also has belonged to various Wiccan Covens; carefully observing their organizational strengths and weaknesses. Moreover learning what actually worked and what didn't. Together with his wife, Roy taught and initiated many students of the Craft, stressing a pragmatic approach to Wicca in seeking to always understand the why's and wherefores of what one is doing. Until his retirement, he was a consultant geoscientist. Roy has abiding interests in history and the study of ancient coinages. He currently resides in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Roy H. Blunden, describes himself as one of the surviving relics of that first wave of British converts to "Old" Gerald Gardner's newly revived 'Wica' - as it was then spelled more than a half Century ago. A time when in his disastrous press interviews our inestimable leader was still describing us as cultists, and when simply being a Wiccan was considered justification for instant dismissal from your employment and children being taken into care for their moral protection. So he was one of the heroic foot-soldiers who quickly learned to keep his head down, for well nigh on a quarter Century, particularly while the big-wigs of the Craft - all half dozen or so at a time - were raising havoc in the world's press. Together with his wife, an American Witch of the second wave when the fratricidal furor was at its' height, they conducted many public and private rituals. In addition Roy lectured widely concerning the practice, mystery and symbolism of Witchcraft in all its aspects of religious celebration, group and magical workings."
