Witchcraft Wednesday: A Valentines Self-Love Ritual

Okay, everyone, let’s get real. Valentines Day comes from a pretty bloody background…

Join the Imbolc Candle Ritual!

Got no time to cast your spells? Live in a shared house where you can’t exactly set up an altar? Or maybe you’re in the broom closet. Join in the Imbolc fun with a dedicated candle in my personal group ceremony, focusing on manifestation, love attraction, self love and new life. All you have toContinue reading “Join the Imbolc Candle Ritual!”

What is Magic to You?

I’ve had people make fun of me for believing in magic. Anyone who believes in magic will experience that at some point – it’s the same as the clash between religion and science – how can two things exist that are counter-intuitive?

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”

Samhain Blessings!

Blessings, Boss Witches and friends! It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Samhain, or Wiccan New Year. It’s a time to celebrate and honour our ancestors and make use of the thinned veil to enhance divination, communication with the other side and consider our practices in general.

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)”
