Witchcraft Wednesday: What's the Deal With Magic Wands?

Today, instead of a spell, I wanted to talk about some tools of the trade – more specifically, the magic wand.

Spirituality, Fibroids and Facing Our Mortality (Part 1)

Slight trigger warning here: discussion of mortality, of illness, of surgery and some depressing sh*t. Maybe skip this one if you’re not feeling it today.

Witchcraft Wednesday: Witchcraft on the Go

It can be tough to be a witch when you have to work away. Or maybe you visit family a lot, or perhaps you’re a traveling brooms salesperson. I don’t know you. For me, I have to work away sometimes. And often I’m gone for between one and five days, which means I’m packing light.Continue reading “Witchcraft Wednesday: Witchcraft on the Go”

Witchcraft Wednesday: 3 Simple Spells (No Witchy Gear Required)

Happy Witchcraft Wednesday! I’ve decided that every Wednesday, I’ll post about witchcraft, whether it’s a spell, a relaxation recording, an activity or even something crafty. The whole point of this blog is to make witchcraft more accessible every day for every person – which is why today, we’re focusing on 3 simple spells that doContinue reading “Witchcraft Wednesday: 3 Simple Spells (No Witchy Gear Required)”

Being a Solitary Witch

I’ve never been part of a coven. I’ve never even had anyone to practise with, apart from my very forgiving partner who participates with me on occasion. I can remember being a young woman of about 16, drawn completely towards witchcraft, but without any kind of access to information about it. I went to highContinue reading “Being a Solitary Witch”

November Snow Moon: What Does it Mean?

What do Witches do on a full moon? You might know that we have one coming up (Tuesday 12th November). This time around, we have the ‘Frost’, ‘Snow’ or ‘Beaver’s’ Moon. That sounds bizarre, doesn’t it? But traditionally, this was the time to set beaver traps. Please don’t do that. Beavers are beautiful, wonderful creaturesContinue reading “November Snow Moon: What Does it Mean?”

Being a ‘Good’ Witch

It’s the human condition. We all want to be the best at what we do, whether that’s work, or hobbies, or family, or just being the best cook in the family (I’m not). This idea of having to ‘do’ things properly – i.e., you can’t be a real painter unless you’ve taken classes, or youContinue reading “Being a ‘Good’ Witch”

Coming Out of the Broom Closet

Coming out as a Witch is something I perhaps held a little more hidden shame in. Don’t get me wrong – I am not ashamed to be a Witch. It’s just that it’s not something that comes up daily, despite the fact that I’m constantly banging on about crystals and planetary alignments, incense, meditation and crystals.

Samhain 2019: How I’m Preparing & Protecting

Happy Weekend, Witches and friends! I’ve been thinking a lot about Samhain over the past few days. I’ve been listening to Pam Grossman’s amazing podcast, The Witch Wave, and one episode in particular (#26 with author Peter Bebergal) made me think more closely about the thinning of the veil, and what happens when our ancestorsContinue reading “Samhain 2019: How I’m Preparing & Protecting”

The Basics of Candle Magick (And a Simple Money Spell)

Witchcraft often has associations with a whole bunch of candles burning, and there’s good reason for that. We Boss Witches love a candle, and candles can serve many purposes within our magical practice. But knowing where to begin can be tricky, and there are so many candles available that it can be confusing, not toContinue reading “The Basics of Candle Magick (And a Simple Money Spell)”
