What does the name Warlock mean?


  1. Warlocks are, among historic Christian traditions, said to be the male equivalent of witches and were said to ride pitchforks instead of broomsticks. In traditional Scottish witchcraft, “warlock” was and is simply the term used for a wizard, or male witch

  2. Men that pratice witchcraft are called witches. As people said above me warlock means traitor and it got this meaning from the Burning Times. Male members from the church aka witch hunters used to go and join wiccan covens. Once they were trusted by the coven and knew when the witches were having a ritual. They would go back to the church and tell the “Holy Men” were this ritual was. Then they would go to the ritual site and either kill or arrest the witches.
    Hope It Helped.

  3. Warlock is an offensive term which originally meant “oath breaker.” It was kind of like giving the big red ‘A’ to that girl in “The Scarlet Letter.”

  4. “Some believe that a male witch is a warlock. That is not true. The word warlock is a Scottish term that means traitor or oath breaker.”
    Which is why Warlock is associated with male witches! The word witch has always had a negative term.

Meditation and Labyrinths

Some people confuse labyrinths with mazes, but it's not a maze. It is more of a meditation that is in walking form. Let me explain. The labyrinth has a pathway that you walk in order to reach the center but it goes round and round, back and forth, until you reach the center. The key is to take slow steps and just walk towards the center; taking your time and following your breath.
