Knot magic rules! Tying a knot is probably a very common and dull action we can all imagine. But let’s all remember what magic really is! Magic is our focused, projected desire to the Universe, consciously using symbolic or even plain actions.
What is Knot Magic?
Knots are essential to magic as a stethoscope is essential to medical doctors. Sure they use other instruments too but what would they do without a stethoscope? The art of binding Knots to cast a spell is known to be practiced since ancient Mesopotamia. We have proof of casting knot magic in ancient Babylon.
History of Knot Magic
Mesopotamia is one of the most ancient civilizations we know to have existed. What predates the wisdom of Mesopotamia is clearly unknown to us. Some could say Atlantis but this is not yet a scientific fact although much effort has been made by Archeologists from all over the World to prove the existence of this Legendary Civilization. The art of Knot Magic could be an imitation of what the Moirae (and Norns) do. As we saw in depth in a previous article the Triple Goddesses of Fate are constantly weaving the Destinies of Humans and others!
The art of weaving can be seen as the symbolic action of dealing with the endless possibilities giving a certain form to what was previously just a cord, thus deciding which will be the fate who mates with each one of us. By practicing Knot-Magic we try to add or maybe alter what the Fates have already decided for us. Modern Practitioners regard the Moirae/Norns/Fates as the personification of the Karma rules and powers. In this case Fate has not been decided yet and every Magical Action can influence Karma as it is a conscious decision to change Reality.
Who are the Patrons of Knot Magic?
Moirae (and Norns) while also the Goddess Athena (Minerva in Latin – the greatest Weaver of all) are Patrons of Knot Magic. The Totem Archetype animals which can be invoked to guide us through knot magic is the Owl and the Spider. Ask Goddess Athena, the Angels of Magic, or the Totem Spirits to guide you to use in the best way the Art of Knotting Magic. Always bear in mind that a bright spirit would never guide you to misuse magic or intervene to another’s free will.
How Knot Magic is used?
Knot magic is used in every kind of spells although it’s long been perceived as the way to control the forces of nature and especially the Winds (in the Futere we are going to give you an ancient knot-magic spell alleged to store and control the winds)! Knots were sold by witches since the ancient times to sailors so that when it’s need the most the sailors would untie a knot to release wind so that they could sail again. However knot magic is used for different and versatile kinds of Magic. It’s used to store and to expel forces as well. (click here to Learn all about the Witch’s Ladder – a famous old knot spell)
Colors of the threads, cords and ribbons often preoccupy the kind of magic the knot will conjure. Below you will find a list of Color Correspondences which can both be used in Knot and Candle Magic. Please know that each color represents certain qualities but if – for any reason – you disagree, I would advice you to go with your instincts.
