"The Witches' Knot," also known as the magic knot and the witch charm is made from the practitioner's sacred Cord— a symbol of protection against malevolent witchcraft. History tells us that witches used knotted cords to "tie up" the weather, to create circles of protection, and to bind things magically. Men of the Middle Ages believed women could immobilize their sexual functioning using female knot magic. Gypsy women untied knots in the clothing of women in childbirth, and unbraided their hair, so as not to "tie-up" delivery.
Our Witches' Knot design is made up of four inter-laced "Vesica Piscis"—a shape that is the intersection of two circles, a world-wide symbol for the Yoni, the feminine creative force that gave birth to the universe. It is said that witches are able to control the winds, raise storms, and influence the weather by tying knots in cords, or even in their own hair. The central circle is a female symbol representing the sacred or consecrated space. The spirals form the sign of the serpent. The serpent is the oldest symbol of female energy— the embodiment of enlightenment and wisdom.
This combination of symbols makes the "Witches' Knot" an awe-inspiring representation of female might and power!
