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.
On February 1st, we move into one of the sweetest, purest Sabbats of the Witch’s calendar.
I saw an interesting post on Facebook yesterday which was essentially saying, it’s okay if you’re too tired to Witch right now. And that resonated with me. As I’ve said before, sometimes we can fall into the trap of labelling ourselves ‘good’ or ‘bad’ witches, in the sense of we might practise every day orContinue reading “When You're Too Tired to Witch”
Greetings, Boss Witches! And I hope you all had a wonderful festive season, whether you were celebrating Yule, Hanukkah, Christmas, Saturnalia…or anything else. 2019 for me was a buster. It was a hard no from me. I had a f*cker of a time with my health starting last January, and I’m just now this monthContinue reading “2020 Vision”
So I’m signed up to receive emails from Gabby Bernstein, who, I think we can all agree, is a bit of a f*cking inspiration, right? Anyway, the other day this email pops up, and it says, “Are you a manic manifester?”. Immediately, I thought – YES. I don’t know what that means but YES, itContinue reading “What is Manic Manifesting?”
Welcome to Wednesday, Witches! Today I am going to address the subject of poppets, otherwise known as dollies, pippies, moppets and mommets. I know that for a long time when I was young, I personally thought poppets were basically the Western version of the “Voodoo Doll”. In pop culture, there is this idea of theContinue reading “Witchcraft Wednesday: What's the Deal with Poppets?”
Today we went for a walk with our friend and neighbour, Katie, and her dog, Hughbert (whom you’ve met before). All three (four?) of us were itching to get out of our apartments, even though the weather was pretty grim. I mean, it’s West Yorkshire in November, after all. But once we got out there,Continue reading “BONUS POST: Pictures from Nature”
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)”
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?”
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”
