Introduction to The Runes with Inner Circle Sanctuary
Saturday, February 20, 2021 from 6 PM to 9 PM
In this class, we will share the meanings of the runes and basics on how to read them. We will discuss various divination spreads and different methods of interpretation. We will also go over a brief history of the runes in order to understand their usage and divination purposes.
The corn dolls that ICS creates are used to bring certain hopes and desires into our homes. Would you like prosperity? Success? Protection? You can make your doll with those ideas in mind and bring those attributes into your home for the coming year. Next Imbolg, we will use these dolls as kindling for our sabbat fire, so we can start the season of growth with all the right intentions.
What a long way Inner Circle Sanctuary has come in six years. Our Coven has grown, even in the time of Covid, as have our activities, both private and public. Our Sabbat practices and Sabbat Rituals continue to be excellent, magical, and communal. We hold six classes a week, and in between these classes, the Elders interview potential new students, plan our activities, and continually edit our materials. Our planning also includes planning for the long term, as we try to leave as little to chance as possible.
Over the past few years, our people, and friends who have attended our events have donated several thousands of dollars to charitable organizations, demonstrating Inner Circle Sanctuary’s commitment to the greater community.
More details to come. All these events are scheduled as online events. If that changes, we'll be sure to let you know.

This movie is magick right off the bat, and doesn’t let up till the very last scene. Do like I did, and eat some leftover Halloween candy, turn out the lights and watch.
For those of you who grew up on The Craft, know beforehand it is not The Craft. But neither are you the person who first fell in love with that incredible movie. The Craft: Legacy is at once its own beautiful creature, and a perfect continuation of the original.
The scenery is so gorgeous I now want to live in where it is set. The magick is so well shot it will excite non- magical people and not turn off practicing Witches. The chants are cool (and useable!) and Witchcraft theory, and even ethics are explored.
As The Craft did, the Craft: Legacy really reflects the times, and yet is timeless. All the actors perform incredibly as very real characters living in situations that can go real to surreal in a second. You will love them. There are plenty of nods to the original, and the 90s in general. I love the quick flash of Pamela Colman-Smith in the beginning. The Craft: Legacy thought up all sorts of cool new ways to advance what the original started. Any loose ends give me hope there will be another The Craft before I die.
Was there anything I didn’t love about this movie? No, and I am glad we bought it instead of renting, because I know we will watch it repeatedly. I wish Lady Morgana and Lord Mordred could see it, as they loved the original. And I hope it isn’t 25 years till the next one is made.
Scourge Making with Inner Circle Sanctuary Saturday, November 21, 202 from 6 PM - 9 PM PT on Zoom
Let ICS allay your fears about this traditional magical tool by showing you how to make a scourge and by explaining what it’s used for. When finished, we will consecrate our new tool together.
If you’d like to join our online crafting event, you can pick up a kit for $10 which will include:
*A pre-drilled wooden dowel
*Incense for consecration
Pickup for kits will be the day of the event: 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Las Vegas 3616 East Lake Mead Boulevard Las Vegas, NV 89115 http://www.uuclv.org/location.html
All money collected will be donated to charity.
If you’d like to use your own supplies, please consider donating to a community charity as your entrance fee to the event.
In addition to the items in our kits, you will need: 1) Hot glue gun and glue 2) Fabric of some kind in whatever design you want, which will be used to wrap the wooden handle. -cotton -leather -suede -silk -fur -etc 3)Any decorations you want -trim -charms -crystals -beads -cording -etc 4) Bowl of water and bowl of salt for consecrating. 5) Scissors
All of our students must have a full set of magical tools before they complete their studies with us. Sometimes this particular tool is hard to find, so we find it best to make our own. Once we show you how easy it is to make this tool, you can get all sorts of creative with your next one, or three, or eight.

The way Inner Circle Sanctuary lives with Mercury Retrograde is to stay in touch with Him, via Candle Magick. In this case, we use a Blue Candle, Mercury Oil, and draw/inscribe His Planetary Glyph and Rad (symbol of three diamonds) on it.
-For Jar Candles, this Rad can/should be carved into the wax. With Mercury Oil, we anoint the top counter-clockwise, because He appears to be moving backwards through the heavens. This is NOT a Reversing Spell, but to stay close to Him.
-If one uses Pillar or Household Candles, we suggest anointing towards one’s self, for the same purpose.
We light these candles during Mercury Retrograde, and until He is out of His shadow - when He reaches the point where Retrograde started.
****Never Leave Candles Burning Unattended!*****
Ours is a Candle Shop Tradition when it comes to spellwork, namely from Bell Book and Candle, and Cat n Cauldron, which were both home to the Temple of the Inner Circle, headed by Lady Morgana and Lord Mordred. Bell Book and Candle was the oldest Occult Shop in Las Vegas, and had its own deep roots through Tarostar and Charmaine Dey.
