Ive seen the fraze "So mote it be" alot since i began geting into magic practices. I was wondering if anyone knew if this is just a fancey way of saying "so let it be" or if it actualy means something more? Does it have older roots in magic, or is this just a creative twist made by new age mages?

I don't use it. I end my spells with "this is my will, and it will be" "this I have begun, let my will/words be done (if I am petitioning a being) or just "it is done". Many times I don't use words tho or they're spoken on the spot with no planning.
I see "so mote it be" as a Wiccan thing, which is neopagan/new age, and I disassociate myself with such modern magick styles.
