Hocus Pocus Two almost made me cry. It was a favorite of mine as a child, but only now did it dawn on me how true movies and books are to the craft. Our ancestors passing down, preserving, what is most important to our civilization.
The Sanderson sisters abide by the rule of three, like Charmed. They also are obsessed with youth and beauty, important to many witches. Look at Snow White, “Mirror, mirror on the wall who’s the fairest of them all?” Witches love glamour, that’s why it’s a form of magic. This is how the Kardashian Jenner coven gained their following. Even in The School of Good and Evil, they speak of ugliness, of beauty. I myself am obsessed with it, I’ve been moisturizing since I was a teenager. I love beauty products, I solved what happened to L’Wren Scott off sheer vanity. The Sanderson sisters consume children for it. Beauty is power, that’s why Melanie Uggo Hamrick has none.
Then there’s the music, also extremely powerful in witchcraft. Do you know how many people bewitch their music? When my friend told me I wrote her off, trying to be normal, ignoring what I am. The scribe was right. Beyoncé does it. That’s why when I see her perform, suddenly I need to listen to her catalog. I told this to the scribe, which is why she divulged this piece of information. Dancing too is essential in the craft.
So what have the Sanderson sisters taught us, a summary: the rule of three’s, glamour magic, music and dance. Also that the darkest spells require an exchange. Did I miss anything? Of course the protective powers of salt and circles! Urgh, October is far too short! Via: Witch Sarah Sanderson
