The start of the Age of Aquarius and the solstice Yule
This is a Wiccan/Pagan Sabbat, but it is also the first day of The Age of Aquarius. This happens at The Great Conjunction, which is when Jupiter and Saturn come together in the heavens in a new element. In this case, The Great Conjunction is leaving the Earth signs and entering the Air signs. Each of these ages last about 200 years. The transition as it impacts our world will not take place over night; it will take years, but we will start seeing it on this day. If you are interested in the massive changes about to take place because of this, do some searches on the internet about it. This is truly one of the most significant dates on the past 200 years.

Christian Witch page, request for information:Just off the top of my noggin there's Italian Catholic-witchcraft, in which every extended family has an aunt, uncle or Nana who they go to for unhexing the evil eye & no one bats an eye 😉. Its still a practiced custom.
Lighting a candle & saying prayers for intercession of Saints into mundane life is part of modern weekly Mass & is commonly part of Catholic home-altars. I can't see much practical difference between petitioning ancestor spirits and asking a Saint's intercession. Spiritually a Saint works a miracle & intercedes into the mundane realm by transformation thru faith, and a magician, occultist, sorcerer or witch works a spell to manifest change thru transformation of consciousness; & Love is the Law. The soul aligns with its highest good in conscious, sacred union with The Divine … on a good day when all the pieces click into place😏. It's still a work in progress.
A very pagan St Hubertus (AD656-727) had a vision as a hunter & saw a stag with the illumined cross between its antlers. Hubert was so affected he went on to become a Bishop. When I was researching him I came across references to St Hubert as a hunter of souls & I was reminded of Herne & the "great hunt" for souls of the dead at All Hallows'.
From an observer's point of view I'd say a Mason might exemplify a Christian sorcerer. Gardner's Wiccan ritual was based on Masonry's little blue book of ritual; lore says it's rituals derived from old Egyptian sources. The murder & resurrection of Masonry's Hiram - the "widow's son" - is like other Pagan & Christian resurrection themes (Inanna, Osiris, Odin, Jesus). Often Hermetic, Pagan & Christian mysteries are similar.
A Christian accepts that The Christ took their sins upon Himself and, having thus awakened, they henceforth choose to live by spiritual values. A witch is someone who uses natural magic & their God given psychic abilities to fill needs & to commune with Nature. A Christian Witch is a Christian who does magic & likewise communes & might also use Psalm Magic. IMO anyone can use magical principles. All cultures in history practice magic; some people use it in religion. If ya think about it the votive rack is candle magic in church.
A Christian Witch might pray to The Father/Mother God and petition intercession of Angels & Saints through prayer-as-offerings. You can Google popular prayers honoring Archangels, Guardian Angels & Patron Saints. You don't need to plug and play Saints as deities although some pagan deities were canonized. Go figure.
