My friend and I went to get tattoos today. I chose to get a Celtic knot, she chose to get a fairy. She wanted to empower her spells with druid magick and chose the fairy to represent the power of the fae in her spells. I got the Celtic knot in honor of one of my relatives who passed along with her name and date of birth…both to get a celtic advantage in my spell casting, and also to get my ancestral energy, as I know that she will now be present with me in spell casting and within the circle. In fact, even tonight, the first night with the tattoo, I could feel her in the circle with me. Our coven is stronger because of this, I know it. Having ancestors and relatives help with spells from the other side is a great way to make it stronger. I think we will add a couple more people to our local coven and then we will stop recruiting. That will make 6 people total. People think you need to have 4 people to have a complete coven, but covens can be consisted of any number of people. I like to have even numbers still because you can do rituals that require you to pair up though.
Anyway, the rest of the coven (2 others right now) are going to get tattoos this week as well to help make the spells stronger, then we will all have them. We were thinking about getting more too, that match, having our coven all get the same matching tattoos would be supremely strong >:D
