Do periods affect spells?

do period affects spell???

Merry Meet Seeker, That is a wonderful question. In many cultures it is customary for women to move away from what they do everyday and relax or do other stuff when they get their periods. Some people believe that this custom started around the time when matrilineal or matriarchial societies were destroyed and men took control of women’s lives. This was also around the time that male gods started to replace Goddesses in many cultures. Although Wicca kept its firm footing on the subject of Goddesses, other religions that started around this time added this “period untouchability” to their agenda against women. Ignorant male priests were the first to denigrade the monthly ritual that allowed women to co-create brand new human beings in their wombs. Some of the isolated cultures it may have started as a result of farming and other harsh work when women were required to rest for certain days of the month while men could continue working. Of course this would never have become a negative ritual. In some societies, even today, women are not allowed to pray or visit temples if they are menstruating. The good news is that Wiccans can work on anything and everything whether they are having their periods or not. Every milestone in life, whether its the birth of a baby (girl or boy), reachinn puberty, finding partners, enjoying sex, having babies and so on.. are celebrated with equal enthusiasm for everyone involved. So you can work on spells whether you are menstruating or not. Do not worry about the old divisive ways of life. They are gone now and we can enjoy true equality through Wicca – all the time. Rest assured that the power of the Goddess is always within us. Hope this helps answer your question. Rose.

    Good answer but will your period make your spell stronger? If I perform a spell when Im bleeding will the spell be much more powerful?
