MAGIC, MAGICK, MAJIC, MAJICK, MAJIK, MAGYK...etc what's the difference?Huh Smiley there isn't any difference- It's just a personal preference. Spell it however you like it Smiley some people spell it in a different way to usual because they think it seperates real magic from party trick magic Smiley

PENTAGRAM. a five pointed star. each point symbolises a different element- Air, Fire, Earth, Water and spirit. (It also used to symbolise the five wounds of christ) Pentagrams can be used in magic to protect things or people.

(Magic/Casting a) CIRCLE. an imaginary circle or one drawn onto the floor that provides a safe place to cast spells. most commonly used in wicca (Not necessary for every spell) The elements of the five spirits of the pentagram are asked to enter the circle and assist in protecting you and help you cast spells. close a circle after use by thanking and dismissing the spirits you invited.

BOOK OF SHADOWS (BOS). a note book that is completely individual and personal to each magic user. use it as a sort of diary. write favourite spells in it. correspondances. favourite quotes. spell experiences etc. anything you want to make a note of for future reference. there is no right or wrong way to make one Smiley

KARMA. the concept that you 'Reap what you sow' Or 'What goes around comes around'. if you do good deeds, Good things will happen to you. if you do bad deeds, Bad things will happen to you. also, If things have been going badly for you, A good thing may happen as a result of karma, For having to put up with it Smiley

SIGIL. a symbol made up by combining two or more symbols together. they are usually used as a spell. for example, for a protection spell you could research symbols that symbolise protection (The pentagram being an example, a sword being another) And make your own symbol by combining them into a picture or pattern. however, It is more common to make a sigil out of magical alphabets e.g. by using runic or enochian letters.

just google them Smiley once you have a list of different names of magical alphabets you can image search them and you should be able to get a picture that has the magical letters next to the corresponding english letter Smiley
