Most days, I feel pretty positive in my magick. Some days I am totally opposite and wish to have a Spirit or bad-ass Goddess at my side. I decided to create a few swaps for those challenging times in our lives and invite those of you who need or want to engage in some stronger work to join the swap. The timing for each swap will be during the Dark Moon Phases.

Historically speaking, the Dark Moon refers to the 3 nights when the Moon exhibits zero illumination, while the New Moon is in the middle of those 3 nights. Look at witchcraft from a historical and/or modern Pagan approach. Dark & light with any sort of implied connotation of good & evil is simply ignorant. The Dark Moon is just one of 8 points within the Lunar cycle & there is nothing intrinsically good or bad about it. Dark Moon magick is very inward focused and can take you deep into the Spirit World.

It really takes courage to work with these Goddesses & the Dark Moon. It gives us a chance to look at the challenges in our lives and do something about them.

The first one focuses on Hel for March in the Dark Moon Nights of 16, 17 & 18.

Next is The Morrigan for April 15, 16, 17

Third is Medusa for May 14, 15, 16.

Hel is identified in Norse mythology described as appearing half-alive & half-dead, Who was banished to the underworld by Odin out of fear of what She might become. In this role, She commanded souls of those dead who did not die in battle, with Her realm being a cold, unwelcome place. As a goddess, Hel is not subject to old age or natural death. Hel can not be harmed by conventional weapons and possess superhuman strength.

What you will send is:

(1) One Candle to be lit to reflect on the following questions:

What is it about Hel that calls to you? Is it aging? Being unwelcomed or unwelcoming? Being banished by family, friends or work-mates? Have you wanted to tell someone to go to Hel without realizing you were sending them to the Goddess? Do you ever feel like you are in a confining space that makes you feel half-alive and half-dead?

(2) Send a handmade booklet with a few pages /OR a small, store bought journal for your partner to write her answers. (This is sender's choice) Receiver, you keep your booklet or journal. This is for your reflection only.

(3) Send a symbolic weapon or tool for your partner to help leave this Goddess and the state of being in the Underworld. It can be anything of your choice. You can send a page to color, a stick to hold, a stone to throw. A mirror.

(4) Tell her why you sent what you did.


  1. Candle

  2. Booklet or journal to write reflections in

  3. Weapon or tool to help leave this state of being (sender's choice)

  4. Note with swap information (swap name, your ID, note about what you sent and why)
