Welcome to Witchcraft Wednesday, witches and friends! I know, it’s been a while. I feel terrible, but also I don’t so, you know, weigh that up. Anyway, today I want to address something that a few people in my IRL world have asked me about witchery: “OBW, how do you maintain being a witch andContinue reading “Witchcraft Wednesday: 10 Ways to Witch Under the Radar”
When we have a constant barrage of distressing, upsetting or just bad news, it has an effect on our bodies, minds and spirits. It gets into the pores of our souls and brings our vibrations down, and that’s normal. In fact, it has been claimed that what we are experiencing is essentially a globally-shared trauma – so it’s more than normal to be feeling distressed, anxious and grubby.
Today, instead of a spell, I wanted to talk about some tools of the trade – more specifically, the magic wand.

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?”
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 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.
