Types of Witchcraft and Magic

There are so many different types of witchcraft and magic out there. It would be nearly impossible to list literally every one. This is my best attempt at a wide variety with just a bit about each one. One of my favorite things about witchcraft and magic is the variety that exists. There is a little something for everyone out there and it is so interesting to see what people gravitate to! A couple notes before we get started: I do not believe labels are needed. If you find a handful of practices that you enjoy that are all over…

Intro to Astrology

A few months ago I was a total astrology skeptic.Then I gave into my curiosity that exists for just about anything and started looking into it a little more.I found Jess at BehatiLife (if you have any interest at all in astrology, tarot, or general witchiness you NEED to check her out) and I started watching her astrology forecasts.Rather than watching her videos and then looking for what she was saying in my life, I was doing the opposite.I was noticing certain things happening with my mood, motivation, interests, etc. Whenever something out of the ordinary happened, I would get…

Why I Don’t Celebrate Sabbats

When you enter the world of witchcraft and paganism you're bound to hear things about the wheel of the year at some point. The wheel of the year is a cycle of eight holidays, called sabbats. These celebrations generally have Celtic or Germanic origins and are most popularly celebrated by practitioners of Wicca. Four of these holidays are marked by the solstices and equinoxes, with the other four being at the midpoints between them. Eventually I'll put together a post that explains all of the sabbats, but I want to discuss something different today... If you're not paying attention to…

The Universe Knows What You Need – Story Time

So I was going to post this on Instagram. But then it started getting REALLY long. I decided this topic deserves its own blog post. Something I've always believed, even way back in my Christian days, is some form of "everything happens for a reason." I'm still working on whether or not that is the best way to phrase it for me. I don't know if I believe in a predetermined destiny or if I'm more on the free will side of things. I haven't gotten around to sorting that out yet. But I do believe that the Universe knows…

Freya’s Aett – Runes Part 2

Welcome to my second post about the Elder Futhark Runes! This is all about the first section, Freya's Aett. Here's the link to post one, all about the basics of runes. Keep in mind that I am by no means an expert on the runes. I've only been learning on and off for about six months and have a lot of learning left to do. This is more of a jumping off point, something to get you started. Once you get the basic idea of what each rune means you can dive deeper and really get down to the bones…

Experiencing Grief During a Spiritual Transition

Death, loss, and grief are big parts of the human existence. They are not easy to go through but are neccessary. I have not experienced much loss in my own life, which is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because it has saved me from the sadness that comes from it. A curse because I've never really learned how to process it. The losses I've faced up until recently have been a close family friend that had been sick for many years, a nephew who never got to experience life outside the womb, and beloved pets that I…

Cleansing – The Basics

Cleansing is a very important part of most witchy people's practices. We cleanse our spaces, our tools, and even ourselves. This is a practice that can be found in many cultures around the world and across time. There are many tools and methods to use for cleansing. Rather than trying to break all of that down right away, this will be more of an introduction to cleansing, why you should do it, when you should do it, and more of a general method. What is cleansing? There are two main types of cleansing, physical and energetic. This is mainly about…

Self Love Ritual – Dedicate Valentine’s day to yourself

Whether you're single this Valentine's Day or you're like me and just don't particularly care for it, you may want to use the day for some self love! And if it's not Valentine's day anymore when you're reading it, that's okay! Self love is a great thing to focus on any time of the year. Most people are familiar with the idea of self love and its importance. As a society we often neglect truly appreciating ourselves and even worse, are full of negative self talk. I won't go much further into the topic, we're all aware of it, we…

Tools In Witchcraft – Why you don’t need them

There is a whole slew of tools that are often seen associated with witchcraft. Everything from candles to wands, divination tools to ritual daggers. There are so many it can get overwhelming to people just starting out on their journey. Tools can be very helpful, but you don't always need them. Why you don't need tools I never really got caught up in the overwhelming need for tools. I think a good part of this is because I have a hard time spending money in general. But I actually attribute most of it to a YouTube video I watched early…

I did something fun today, my first ever tarot reading with my first deck, the Linestrider Tarot!
