At the time of the Middle Ages, Witchcraft was very alive and did remarkably well in Spain. In fact, a drawing by Goya portrays two witches soaring on a broom to their aquelarre (a term that means Sabbath in Spanish). Apart from this, there was also another drawing that was similarly popular and quite disturbing. This drawing exhibits a young witch uprooting a tooth right from the mouth of a hanged person (man) as she covers her face from a corpse. Supposedly, the hanged man’s tooth ought to be a great shield against invaders and could further be employed to send that rival to the nether realms.
These and many other Wicca traditions were actually brought by Spaniards to Latin America. For some time, the Wicca traditions thrived and bloomed at a great speed. The influence of brujería (Witchcraft) was very robust in Latin America such that the term itself became interchangeable with all the mystic customs of the darker kind. Indeed, this undermined Witchcraft and turned it out as something counterfeit and dangerous (something to fear). Up to date, Latin Americans take a brujería as a magic spell that is normally cast by wicked people. A witch or brujo is regarded by quite a number of Latin America as a black sorcerer, usually in the same group with dark forces. The brujerías have to be dismissed and exorcised, and in order to suitably do achieve that, Latin America has come up with an extensive collection of cleanings as well as counterspells meant to protect and counterattack. Right from Mexico, Argentina, Puerto Rico, Cuba and Colombia to Honduras, Guatemala, Uruguay and Venezuela Latin America is full of magical customs and practices. Although the Catholic Church did its best in trying to destroy the Wicca with the cross-examination, there was no success at all. Therefore, this erstwhile adversary remained.
Indeed, there is no other place in the globe that is profoundly steeped in the tradition of magic like Latin America. As a matter of fact, magic is not something can deride in these places. Actually, it is simply a way of living. Latin Americans use millions of dollars each year in the tradition of all sorts of magic that include magic for money, love, success and prosperity, good health and most importantly, for a shield against invaders and their harmful magic.
Some Latin Americans use hundreds of laboriously-earned dollars they can ill manage to spend for their enchanting demands. Actually, in Latin America, everything can be worked by way of magic. Therefore, Wicca had its malice on Christianity. It has held a great revival in this region where people used more resources on Witchcraft than they spend on their parish church.
Generally, it should be known that Witchcraft is not bad. It is just an Earth religion, that is rooted in the life and natural forces, in which the purpose is to something that has the spirit of all things.
