What is a Witch's Ladder?
A witch's ladder is one of those nifty things we sometimes hear about but rarely see. Its purpose is similar to that of a rosary–it's basically a tool for meditation and ritual, in which different colors are used as symbols for one's intent. It's also used as a counting tool, because in some spell workings there is a need to repeat the working a particular number of times. You can use the ladder to keep track of your count, running the feathers or beads along as you do so.
