The Witch trial of Nogaredo (Hæxan : Nogareit ) Le streghe di Nogaredo took place from 24 November 1646 in Nogaredo in Italy.
During torture, Maria Salvatori pointed out the widow Domenica Camelli, and Domenica’s daughter, Lucia Caveden, as witches. Salvatori claimed that she had given a host to Lucia Caveden, who used it to cast the spell on Marchioness Bevilacqua. She named Delaito Cavaleri was a necromancer and a worshipper of Satan. Necromancy is a form of magic involving communication with the deceased – either by summoning their spirit as an apparition or raising them bodily – for the purpose of divination, imparting the means to foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge. The term may sometimes be used in a more general sense to refer to black magic or witchcraft.
Domenica Camelli, Lucia Caveden, Domenica Gratiadei, Catterina Baroni, Zinevra Chemola, Isabella and Plonia Gratiadei, and Valentina Andrei were condemned to death. Maria Salvatori, and Maddalena Andrei, both died in prison. The condemned were beheaded and their bodies burned on 14 April, 1647.
Le streghe di Nogaredo - Stregheria is sometimes referred to as La Vecchia Religione (“the Old Religion”).The word stregheria is an archaic Italian word for “witchcraft”, the modern Italian word being stregoneria.

The Snow Moon heralds the season of sleep and reflection and at this time we are at a crossroads with intermittent warm days growing less and less frequent as the fiercely cold nights take over the land. It is a time to stock up for the winter, count your abundance and prosperity, be grateful and plan for the winter. Also keep in mind that winter, just like every other season, will pass. This is a good time of the year to look to divination to help with your plans. This moon gives us the opportunity to descend within ourselves and find the inner realm.
It is time to write poems and songs and rehearsal your talents and gifts. To prepare yourself and (re)shape yourself.
