The Magic of Meow

This article was written by Ellen Dugan
posted under Pagan

Cats, more than any other creature, have been linked to magick and Witchcraft over the centuries. The feline is a fascinating animal. Its history is full of divinity, mystery, and enchantment. The Enchanted Cat is a captivating and practical guide to the wonder and magick inherent in the domestic feline. Within this enjoyable book, you will find mythology, deity information, folklore, cat astrology, spells, and simple charms all revolving around the enchanted cat.

We’ll start our search for information in Egypt, and take a fresh look at the mythology of cat goddesses, so you can understand how the feline became so wrapped up in feminine mystique. Then we’ll trail into Rome and discover the links between the Egyptian goddesses and the Italian goddesses, Diana and her daughter Aradia. From there we’ll go deep into Europe and visit with Freya, a Norse goddess also famous for her association with the cat.

Next the book delves into cat folklore and legend, and the magickal qualities of the domestic cat. Gaze into feline divination techniques, weather predictions, and elemental spells, all based on the tradition of feline folklore. In this cat-a-log of enchantment you will learn to work cat-charms for hearth and home as well as dozens of other practical and affirmative spells for love, protection, and healing. As you read The Enchanted Cat, you will begin to identify with feline familiars and learn how to successfully work magick with them. Cats, by their very nature, are in tune with the subtle energies of magick. They make wonderful working partners, so long as you respect their independence and unique personalities.


Cat Magick, Astrology, and More
Cat magick is an older and more traditional variety of spellwork, and learning to successfully work with cats in a type of psychic partnership gives you a chance to expand your magickal expertise and to learn something new. For example, did you know that your enchanted cat can help you to gauge the psychic mood or energy level of your home? It’s true.

In this book I’ll introduce you to a little feline feng shui, all with the help of our fascinating and graceful cat friends. These practical magicks and psychic techniques are to be worked together with your enchanted cat companion, and will feature simple and inexpensive magickal supplies that you probably already have on hand. Interested in a little cat astrology? Well, look no further, my cat-loving friend. If you’ve ever wondered how the different zodiac signs affect your cat’s personality, this will be right up your alley. You will also find a chapter featuring feline animal powers. As you study the symbolism, energies, and magick of the domesticated cat and its wild cousins, you will learn how to incorporate these positive lessons into your life with meditation and psychic spellwork. In the closing chapter, you will discover the art of naming (as choosing a name for an enchanted feline companion is a serious matter indeed).

Once you have gained all this knowledge, you’re going to want to pick out a new, special magickal name for your pet or pets. This section will feature a list of enchanting feline names for queens and toms, their meanings, plus a naming ritual for a kitten or cat. And, of course, there will be even more bewitching spells and charms for a cat’s collar and ID tag.

The Enchanted Cat also features a journal section that allows you to take notes, jot down your experiences from the meditations, and provides a place to write your own feline fascinations. The journal allows you to personalize this book and make it uniquely yours. In the journal I have also included a spell worksheet and correspondence charts for cat magick. This will allow you to conjure up your own custom-made variety of enchantment and provide an at-a-glance correspondence section for you to refer back to.


In the Company of Cats
With cats in our lives, we have the opportunity to take some quiet time to discover our own courage, and to nurture our spirit. From cats we learn the value of grace and silence. We learn to look within. At home, in the company of cats as we observe their intuitive and captivating qualities, we begin to appreciate our own inner magick. No matter what your magickal tradition, whether you are male or female, young or old, we all need to have a sense of divine spark within ourselves. In that quiet place where visions are born, our imagination flourishes and magick begins. By taking the time to focus our attention inward and learning to work with a feline companion, wisdom and witchery may be achieved.
