I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

The Witch's Familiar


The concept of the familiar has been a vital component of various cultures throughout man's history. The Romans, for example, believed that each household was protected by a familiar whose job it was to keep the family from harm, and shamans and medicine men of various tribal traditions have long honored the spirits of animals for their wisdom and assistance in magickal workings.

Yet despite these positive influences, when we think of a familiar the most common image is that of the evil witch with her fearsome-looking black cat. This archetype, straight from the fairy tales of our childhood, has its roots in the fear and superstition of the Dark Ages, and it bears no resemblance to the modern-day familiar...

... I am so sorry, but this post has been moved to my new website, The Powers That Be, and can be found in its entirety here: The Witch's Familiar

Is it possible to end up with a familiar without searching? I feel like my cat and I have a bond like that. And whenever I cast a spell, I have to have her near me or I cannot stay focused enough to do it. When I was looking for a cat, I wasn't searching for a familiar, I was looking for something to take care of, but I ended up with a companion that I feel we have the same feelings and thoughts sometimes.

In my opinion familiars aren't being to be searched for at all. Its true u can send out a vibe of sort to help locate one, however forcing a being of sort to come when its not time can end badly. Familiars should come to u on their own when he/she/it is ready. Mine did along with others in my family.
