What's Up With SAZCUUPS November 2020?
What is Waning?We enjoyed a Stitch and Witch class with crafters of all kinds and had a great time! Our second Sunday classes are shaping up to be really awesome for the rest of the church year, keep an eye on this spot for future offerings!
Our Second Sunday class in candle magic will be taught by Leigh Mileur, On Sunday, November 8th at 12:15pm.
Leigh has been a practicing pagan since 2009 and they currently use the label “Norse-leaning eclectic”. They are a member of SAZCUUPS since 2017 and of the Heathen organization The Troth since April of this year. This class was previously offered in-person in October 2019 and will use Zoom in a participatory manner, though everyone is welcome to use pen and paper if they are more comfortable. In this beginners' class, Leigh will teach a candle magic method that uses a sigil made from letters in the English alphabet, which will be taken from a phrase of intent each participant will create. They will briefly cover positive vs. negative statements in magic, visualization, charging a candle, and the concept of dressing or anointing a candle. They will mention a few other methods of sigil creation as well. When you have completed this class, you will know how to use this method to create sigilized candles on your own, and Leigh will make available (through email or Facebook) a list of resources for further learning, as well as suggestions of local stores to purchase candles and holders.Necessary supplies:a writing implement and paper will be very helpful for sigil design. We will also be using the "annotate" tools in Zoom to draw for those who are comfortable. A method of taking notes would be recommended.
