Black or white, it depends who appreciates.
My humble opinion is that there is just no magic, but only phenomena that we can't yet understand/explain.
The point of this blog being that the intent does not anyways matter. Magic can have unexpected consequences. Even if your intent is *good*, in your opinion, all the consequences may not be.
Also, if you are going to post author's opinions in my blogs in the future please be prepared with the author's name and title of the book. I cannot find that book by a Caskaris or similar name for reference.
And where did this definition come from again?? Because it makes no logical sense. White is nonspecific magic and black is specific magic? From what logic is this opinion formed?
The question about Green Witchcraft has already been put forth and "tackled", so there is no reason to really bring it up again. Only, to state that I associate more completely with Green Witchcraft, as well as Shaman beliefs. (I am still looking for more study material for Druidism and I will have to look into that Earth Magic you were talking about.)
I have never put much thought into "White" or "Black" Magic. I have always seen these as something from Fantasy books/movies. Only recently have I put started associating "Black" Magic with anything and that is with the Nocturnal side of things. Some of us reach our peak in our energy cycle when Mother Moon is out and Father Sun has descended into the horizon. (I like to refer to it as being Moon Called, as I love the myths and legends of Werewolves, but that is another topic all together.) It only seems natural to want to perform any type of Magic, from the most simple to the more ceremonial, when we are at the peak of our energy cycle. That is just my opinion.
I love that you decided to post on this. There are many out there, whether they share the same beliefs or are from the more organized religions, that put some type of dogma as to Magic being "White" or "Black". It is nice to see that there are those of us out there that truly know Magic is just that, Magic. I always explain, when asked about Magic, that Magic isn't nothing more than Change. The leaves changing in the Fall, that is Magic. A seedling growing into a beautiful flower or tree, that is Magic. Changing my negative energy and thoughts into more positive energy and thoughts, that is Magic. Asking the Goddess and/or the God to help me or a loved one, the change (outcome) is Magic. Again, just my opinion.
