In the early times, Witch Bottles were designed to protect homes against malicious witchcraft. They were commonly made around Samhain to protect the home from evil spirits. The witch bottle was commonly made up of glass, pottery, pins and nails. Sometimes, the maker would include his own urine to link the magick to the home and the family with in it. They were used as far back as the 1600’s! Witch Bottles are said to be of English origin.

Now that I’ve calmed down a bit, here are my thoughts on the advert:
1. Bitch what the fuck
2. That is Harry playing the piano and those are the opening notes to his debut single.
3. Bitch what the fuck
4. He has not one, but two new tattoos. One looks like some sort of bug (the Scarab beetle concept seems very plausible) and then the very visible R. The R stands for Raconteur and Raconteur will be the title of HS1.
5. Bitch what the fuck
6. In the debut single, we will hear him breathe in like he does in the beginning of If I Could Fly.
7. Bitch what the fuck
8. Not only will we be getting a full-length single on April 7, we will also be getting a 5-6 minute music video.
Cancer is associated with the mildew milk of the moon casting shadowy illuminations. The gloss of the moon is dusted on her body like lunar body butter, she is so safe in a dwelling where the light is only half switched on. We course deeper and deeper into the Cancer spirit, expecting to extract only darkness. But the deeper we go, the more light that seems to glow. There is a row of piano keys as you caress her memories, there is a lamp that echoes down blackened chambers, there are lunar rabbits hiding, and the sound of crying. Cancer was anciently inscribed as the scarab beetle. The scarab beetle was revered and sacredly recognised as sun, our internal sun, the heart. Cancer reflects the beams of moonlight in preparation of the light of Leo, so the activity in Cancer is illumination at its most pure. She is the esteemed mother, ultimate creative source energy. And she is also the cherished child, because Cancer does not become the mother without a child to nurture. The child within Cancer reminds her of that vulnerable innocence that cannot be destroyed. This child carries a light lantern around her heart that shimmers like the scarab’s sun. The Mother Goddess in Cancer is a formidable figure of biological and spiritual activity, the waters that birth and cradle all life. But there is different sort of light or essence in Cancer, one that the inner child refuses to let go of. It is her intimacy with this internal child, the scarab, that gives her the anointed and sacred mother’s touch. The scarab was anciently regarded as a ‘very tiny cosmos’ as it symbolised entrance into the material universe. This ‘tiny cosmos’ is still active inside Cancer. It’s why she can believe that mermaids exist and immerse herself in make believe. It’s why she can enjoy simple pleasures like colouring in and eating cookie dough. Mother and Child divided and reunited by light itself.
The scarab beetle (the dung beetle)was one of the most important Ancient Egyptian religious symbol. They lay eggs in a pellet and roll them along. The Egyptians regarded this action as similar to the the actions of a gigantic beetle, Khepri, moving the sun across the heavens. The scarab beetle came to represent rebirth.
