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.

When You're Too Tired to Witch

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.

Do Witches Pray?

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).
