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”

Today we went for a walk with our friend and neighbour, Katie, and her dog, Hughbert (whom you’ve met before).

This 2019 Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio has been a doozy. Everyone I know, even non-believers, have experienced travel delays, electrical problems, technological fails, had exes pop up out of the blue after 20 years… it’s been a time. Now that we’re approaching November 20th, you might be tempted to start feeling relieved – you madeContinue reading “Mercury Retroshade: We’re Not Out of Danger Yet”
Don’t worry, this isn’t a poem. Despite working a bit with rhyming when it comes to my own spellwork, I’m not really into writing poetry on the whole. I like reading (some of) it. I realised that I haven’t touched much on what it’s like to be doing a PhD, which I’m sure a lotContinue reading “PhDs and Calming Teas: Practical Self-Care Tips for People Who Have Way Too Much Sh*t On Their Plates”
