Slavic witchery
Post # 1
I just thought some might find this info useful;

"Balkan Traditional Witchcraft is an old system from shamanic times that has managed to survive until today. As a system it can be applied to any culture, state or region in the world."

Now Balcanic witchcraft is the very same thing as SLAVIC witchraft , originated from Celts , Ilirics and few other smaller groups that migrated very long time ago ( I hate history lol ) in Mediterranean and southern Europe parts.
It's important for me to point out that is pre-Gardnerian system , that quite resembles Druidism.

I myself find some parts of it resembling Voodoo ( and Hoodoo ) quite a bit .

Well here are just a few tips, for You to get an idea and maybe do further research( or make a coven , me is to lazy for that lol )

TO REVERSE HEXES, CURSSES OR ANY SPELL DISAGREABLE WITH YOU, on a Saturday night , yust before midnight boil a herb Tanacetum Vulgare in cauldron, then few mins after boiling , pour it over Your doorstep saying :
"I'm not spilling, I'm returning"
If You were right , and were under attack , petard like sound is to be heard when poured , and winds may start to blow.

CLAIRVOYANCE CHARM ; A snake head is to be cut , with the silver coin , then a piece of garlic is to be planted in the mouth , on a waxing moon. When the garlic germinates , take it out. When ever you carry this charm you shall be able to see all sorts of supernatural creatures from ghosts to fairies , devas , demons ect.

A word or two about pantheon

Pantheon resembles two very famous sistems , druidic ( "main" God called "Perun" lives in Oak , making this a holly three of lightning , storm and magickal work in general )
and Wicca since there are "God" ( Pan-like creature , of almoust identical apearence ) called "Tartor" and Goddess simply refered as Forest Mother , completely coresspondent ( with few less important details ) to Wiccan Goddess .
Politeistic system includes many other dietys that are correspondent to the ones in Druidic systems ( Good's of darkness and winter , Godess of Spring , Good of Light , Good of Darkness ( female though ) etc ).

Well , here's link :

and some copy-pasted info

Perun was a significant god of the Slavic Pantheon ? the most significant god, in fact. He is mentioned in the Primary Chronicles, and is said to have been the main god of Kievan Rus. In fact, when Prince Vladimir chose Christianity for his people, it is said that the statue of the god Perun was thrown into the Dnieper River a gesture to symbolize the adoption of Christianity and the end of paganism.

Perun was the god of thunder and battle. On par with Zeus of the Greek pantheon, Perun also shared some of Zeus? traits; symbols shared by both Perun and Zeus include the oak tree, an eagle, and lightening and thunder.

Veles was Perun?s opposition according to the Slavic Pantheon. The god of water, the underworld, dragons, and cattle, Veles is often depicted with serpent-like qualities. In fact, one Slavic myth recounts a battle between Perun and a dragon or serpent; the serpent in this tale is associated with Veles. For agricultural Slavic peasants, Veles was also and important god for the protection of their livestock.

Jarilo and Morana
Jarilo and Morana, children of Perun, are both associated with the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Many Eastern European nations still celebrate in pagan style by saying goodbye to winter and welcoming spring with straw effigies and other rituals that have their origins in pre-Christian Eastern Europe.

Jarilo, a horse-like god, was the Slavic god of springtime and harvest. Morana was the goddess of death, winter, and nature.

Other Slavic Gods
Other gods are a part of the Slavic Pantheon, but even less is known about them. Stribog, the god of winds, Dazbog, associated with the sun and wolves, Svarog, the god of the Sun and fire, and the Zorya, goddesses of night and day are known to have existed in various forms. Some Slavic gods existed in sort of m?langes of several gods, taking on the characteristics of deities that were previously interpreted as being individual gods and goddesses.

+ A verrrry , very rich Fae system , and many htonic demons
"Ala" for ex. Demon of Tunder stormes, creature of revolting apearence

I'm from the balkans and we have so much strange myths. My grandmother always put garlic in front of the door to protect herself from the vampires. Trust me,whole your beliefs would be changed if you would talk with some elders of balkan. Even if Catholic and Orhodox Christianity along with Islam are spreded there, the myths and paganism remain until this day. Most of my knowlege I learned from my grandfather.
Thank you Shadow.

Peace and happiness from Angelus.

Nice thread bro.
Me and my friend are working on a book of old Balkan stories about witchcraft and other paranormal stuff.
I know a Slavic egg curse (strong curse - can backfire). I'm not sure I should post it here, it's pretty hardcore.
Balkan 4 life!

Ok , so just a few more pieces on info regarding tools:

Cauldron - as in Wicca represents uterus , and is used for potions , but here also for mundine cooking

"Verige" - chains that keep cauldron hunged over fire place , they represent the way of connection with the ancestors

Athame - a knife or blade made by a naked man on midnight , who remains mute during the process and handle that is out of black bulls horn ( painted to black if necesary )

Broom - made from special herb collected on Midsummer , the handle is made from birch , some branches can be added

Wand - made ussualy from hazel , by the same way as in any tradition , though many time Slavic witches are granted special wands by supernaturall creatures. It is considered more of a mail tool in Slavic witchery.

Curious about anything else on the subject? Fell free to ask !

Hi! I am from Albania but live in Greece! I have recently started a research about ancient Illyrian gods and Albanian gods! I was surprised that I found things I knew because I had heard them from my grandfather but I thought it was his tales! If you are interested have a look at Albanian Pantheon!

Enji - He was the god of fire & war. He's equivalent in Greek & roman mythology might be Ares/Mars. He's equivalent in the Norse mythology is Thor. It is from this god that our week day e enjte (Thursday) comes from. This is interesting since Thursday in Germanic languages, is named after Thor/Thur, the god of war. Obviously, Enji must've been important to our people since we named a week day after him!

Prema - She was the goddess of fertility/birth. Her equivalent in the Greek mythology is Demeter. She is also honored with a week-day; e premte (friday). This is also interesting since the Germanic people have also named Friday after their fertility goddess, freya; examples are Freitag in German, Fredag in Scandinavian languages and Friday in the English language.

Anzotica - This was a goddess that in terms of belief, seems to have been restricted to the Illyrian tribe of the Liburnae. She's the Illyrian equivalent of Aphrodite/Venus! I believe that the middle of her name, Anzotica, is clearly connected with our word zot, god!

Ica/Ika - Another goddess of the Illyrians. I'm not quite sure what this goddess stood for. And could it be that her etymology is related to our word ika or ikje (flee or flight)?

Bindus - The god of water, the equivalent of Poseidon or Neptune. This god was especially worshipped by the Illyrians of the Iapod tribe (Japod?t).

Vidasus - Like Bindus, this Illyrian god was also the protector of water-sources. Apparently, he was always in company with the goddess of hunting (our equivalent to Artemis), Thana.

Thana - She was the goddess of hunting. I suspect that the etymology of her name is connected to our word tharje, i.e. withering, death. Afterall, hunting means death (of animals), so it wouldn't be surprising if that's where her name originates from. This, in turn, can be connected to the Greek word thanatos, death.

Dualos - The god/goddess of whine. It's clearly connected to our word dejur - to be drunk! This in turn, is of an old IE-root, since the word is also present in old Gothic, dwals, which has the same meaning as dejur!

Surd - The god of wheather. I'm just wildly speculating here, but wheather/wind equals to noice, and sometimes bad noice. Noice of high level in turn can make us deaf; could it be that it's from here that our word shurdh?r (deaf) stems from? We often use the term 'mos m? shurdho' when our ears hurts from an example, screaming ... ?? Or is it a Latin loan-word?

1. Djall
The Albanian name for the devil. Another name for the devil in Albanian is dreqi, from the Latin draco (dragon).

2. Bukuri e qiellit
Albanian name for the Christian God.

3. Ljubi
The Albanian demoness who will dry water courses in the land if no virgin is sacrificed to her.

4. En
Among the ancient Albanians the term for god in general, but also the name of the supreme god. The word en survived in enj?t?, the Albanian word for Thursday.

5. Kukuth
Ancient Albanian female demons of sickness who spread the plague. The spirit of a deceased miser, who cannot find rest, and who does much evil, is also called Kukuth.

6. Ora
An Albanian protective spirit. Every person is assigned an Ora at birth. Those who are courageous and diligent have one with a white face. Those who are cowardly and lazy have an Ora with a black face.

7. Fatit
South-Albanian female deities of destiny, similar to the Greek Moirae. These three goddesses appear at the cradle, on the third day after the birth of a child, to determine the child's fate.

8. Stihi
A female demon in south Albanian belief. She is represented as a fire-breathing dragon guarding a treasure.

9. Perendi
The Albanian thunder god of Illyrian origin. He is the consort of Prende, the goddess of love. Perendi is identical with the Lithuanian Perkunas and the Latvian Perkons.

10. Perit
In Albanian folklore, they are female mountain deities of great beauty. They are dressed entirely in white and are regarded as good fairies. They can become very angry towards those who spill bread, and will give these sinners a hump.

11. Verbti
The ancient Albanian god of fire and the northern wind whose name means "the blind one". Although he cannot see, his hearing is absolutely perfect. He has an aversion of obscene language and dirty business. With the advent of Christianization he was reduced to a demon who causes blindness.

12. Kulshedra
A different name for dragon-like creature Bolla from Albanian folklore.

13. Vitore
A good Albanian household spirit who, in the shape of a small snake, lives in the walls of the house. With a soft whistling it announces both pleasant as well as sad events.

14. Xindhi
The Xindhi are, in Albanian folklore, elves or elfish creatures. Their approaching is accompanied by the creaking of a door or the flickering of a flame. The Xindhi are the male spirits and the Xindha are the female spirits. They are known to be sometimes friendly and helpful, but more often they are cruel to humans.

15. Bukura e dheut
A beautiful fairy among the ancient Albanians who is always very helpful. The supreme god Tomor is her lover. She is sometimes connected with the underworld and shows some demonical aspects. Her name means "the beauty of the earth". Her sister is Bukura e detit, and her name means "the beauty of the sea".

16. Tomor
The supreme god of the ancient Albanians, from Illyrian origin. He is the father of all the gods and humans and lover of the beautiful goddess Bukura e dheut. The winds are his servants. He is also known as Baba Tomor.

17. Prende
Goddess of love worshipped by the ancient Illyrians and, later, the Albanians. The wife of Perendi, the Illyrian thunder-god, Prende is referred to in folktales and legends as the "queen of beauty" (zoja e bukuris). After the Catholicization of the region, Prende was absorbed into the new church as a minor saint; as in pre-Christian days, her holy day always falls on a Friday.

18. Bolla
In ancient Albanian folklore, Bolla is a snake-like (or dragon-like) creature that sleeps throughout the entire year. On Saint George's Day, it will open its eyes and look into the world. A human unfortunate enough to be spotted by Bolla will be devoured instantly. At the end of a twelve-year cycle it mutates into another being, called Kulshedra. This creature is a horrible, fire-breathing dragon with nine tongues. Kulshedra is sometimes also represented as an enormous woman with a hairy body and hanging breasts. The monster can cause a shortage of water and it requires human sacrifices to propitiate it. The creature is also known as Bullar in south Albania.

Ahh! And I forgot! these are some spells I learned from my grandmother!

To make a girl want to have sex with you:
Take some bat bones(ash/powder form) and drop it to your target's hair, on his head!

To ward off evil:
Take a snake's leather and keep it with you!
Do not kill a snake! It is very bad to kill a snake! Just look a piece that a snake has left!
I warn you never kill a snake. Snakes won't attack you if they aren't afraid!
