Ancient Syrian Goddess, Atargatis, is the first mermaid to be officially recorded and listed in history. She was a symbiotic goddess of the moon and, as the tide ebbs and flows with the moon, it makes sense that she would be depicted as a mermaid. Since then, mermaids have featured in a number of different fairy tales and mythological stories and people have long speculated about whether they are actually real or not. But what if they are not only real but can teach us lessons that will significantly enhance our personal development and help us to live a more deeply fulfilled life?
Here we explore this possibility in detail and take a look at how these majestic creatures and mermaid magick could have a significant impact on both you and the way you live your life.
What is Mermaid Magick?
In order to understand what mermaid magick is, it is important to first understand what magick is in itself. Four primary forces exist in nature – including earth, air, fire, and water – and magick is, quite simply, the practice of harnessing these forces or energies of creation. If combined with the power of your own will or faith, these forces can be very powerful, and they can be used to achieve a focused end.
In ancient history, mermaids were said to work with the moon and mermaid magick was reportedly used for shapeshifting and transformation. The moon is very closely related to the ocean and tides and, nowadays, mermaid magick is believed to be about using the power of the big deep. The energy created by mermaids and water is harnessed and anything relating to the sea, whether it be the motion and sound of the waves or the smell and taste of the salt water, can be used as a source of power.
The Rhythm of the Tides
A key to success with mermaid magick is to follow the rhythm of the tide. Whatever it is you are trying to achieve, the effects of mermaid magick can be greatly enhanced depending upon the tide.
For example, if you are trying to draw energy or call something or someone to you, such as love, money, or power, it is better to wait for a high tide or when the tide is moving inward. By contrast, if you are trying to rid or banish something negative, such as a problem or fear, it is better to practice mer magick during an outgoing tide – when the waves can effectively carry the negativity away. Finally, if the goal is to bring balance and harmony to your life, mermaid magick should be worked on the low tide, when the water is as calm as possible, and you can see things more clearly.
When is the Best Time to Practice Mermaid Magick?
Due to its associations with the tide and the moon, mer magick is most effective during a full moon. This occurs approximately 14 days after the new moon and the energy of a full moon is most potent during the three days before and after. During this period, the effects of mermaid magick are greatly enhanced and it is a fantastic time to call upon the powers of a mermaid. At any other point in the cycle of the moon, Monday is believed to be the best day to utilise the power of mermaid magick.
Mermaids are a Source of Passion
Throughout the years, mermaid magick has become somewhat of a lost tradition or practice – perhaps because people often associate mermaids with fairy tales and question their very existence. But what if they are real? Mermaids are a source of passion for this planet, a symbol of feminism, beauty, femininity, and love. By bringing their passion to all areas of life, they have the ability to heal apathy and disease and their teachings can help us to live a joyful and fulfilled life. A harmonious and peaceful life, that most people could only dream of.
