Witchcraft Supplies for Beginners

By | October 26th, 2017|Divination, Rituals, Tools of the Craft|

As a beginner in the craft, I was completely overwhelmed with all the tangible items involved in practicing. There are many that believe you don't need tools to work your magic, but most traditions require the use of tools in some way to work the magick or perform rituals and spells. When I first began [...]

Witchcraft Books for Beginners

By | June 12th, 2017|Spells, Tools of the Craft, Witchcraft Resources|

With all the published material and resources out there, navigating through them all to get a base knowledge can be an overwhelming task. If you’re new to the craft or wanting to fill in gaps in your knowledge, there are many witchcraft books and essays out there to digest. Some of them good, some horrible, and some that are misinformed. When I was new to the craft, it was hard for me to find some good solid resources that weren’t oversimplified or simply rehashed manuscripts for more accomplished authors and practitioners. The following witchcraft books are great for anyone starting out and are respected authors/teachers in the craft. […]

Yuletide: Rebirth of the Sun

As the date varies with the Solar Calendar, Yule is a Pagan/Wiccan holiday celebrated around December 20th-23rd each year. Yule is a celebration of the rebirth of the Horned God, represented by the sun. On this solstice, the suns path begins to lengthen again, making our days longer again until the summer solstice. How to [...]

Energy Exhaustion

By | December 13th, 2016|Life|

Your body runs on energy as does your craft. When one is out of balance the other suffers as well. You've tried everything you can think of to get your vigor back in your casting and in your every day life and it's just not taking hold. Magic isn't a fix all- sometimes your body [...]

A Witches Grimoire

By | December 5th, 2016|Uncategorized|

Since the dawn of witchcraft we've recorded our findings and passed them down to the younger generations. As the image of the witch twisted as time went on, we began hiding our secrets and locking them away. Most witches wrote our secrets in a leather bound book called a Book of Shadows or a grimoire. What is [...]

How to dry herbs

By | November 30th, 2016|Tools of the Craft|

Herbs are an extremely important part of witchcraft. If you're a true herbalist, you follow the strict teachings of the Green Witches. Harvest when the plant's planets are in their house, the time of day or night needs to be perfect, and you also have a offering for the herb as well. As a not [...]

Spellwork With Poppets

By | November 29th, 2016|Uncategorized|

Poppets Poppet magic is very large in the Wiccan, Pagan, and many other magical spiritualties. Poppet magic, more commonly known as voodoo, is a very useful tool in the Craft. Now contrary to common belief, voodoo magic or poppet spells are not only used to harm. What are poppets? Poppets are small cloth dolls made [...]

Elemental Attunement

By | November 22nd, 2016|Camping & Hiking, Life, Rituals, Tools of the Craft|

Elemental attunement is the practice of being one with the elements. Yes, we are all born under a sign with a specified element, but as a witch I feel it necessary to communicate with all elements. Elements also have specific workers that do their bidding as well called elementals. Working in tandem with the element [...]

Magic On The Go

By | November 17th, 2016|Rituals, Spells, Tools of the Craft|

So- I’ve noticed in my fast paced life, working a full time job, maintaining a wonderful marriage, being a father to a fur baby, and writing blogs, while keeping up with an Etsy site… Witchcraft sometimes falls to the side, which is not something I take lightly. What I’ve come up with is something small, [...]

So last week I taught you how to ground your energies and this week I will teach you how to protect the energies you have! Sigils Sigils are a very old and very powerful magic practice. The sigils themselves are small magically imbued symbols that manifest a specific intent. There are many different ways to make [...]

Merry Meet everyone! A topic that I’ve learned much about through the years and have brought into my daily life is grounding. What is grounding? If you’re unfamiliar with the term, grounding is cleansing your body of negative or unwanted energies through visualization and energy working. There are many ways to ground, each with their [...]


By | November 7th, 2016|Divination, Tools of the Craft|

One facet of witchcraft that I find extremely interesting is divination. Since the beginning of time magic and non-magic-folk have been using forms of divination to predict future outcomes. For example, to predict a successful harvest, the pilgrims would consult the clouds. Pirates used the sun to predict if it were going to be clear [...]

To celebrate we went with his parents on a weekend vacation to the beautiful city of Asheville, North Carolina. On our weekend away from home we went pub hopping in Downtown Asheville, where I [...]

A Walk in the Woods

By | October 28th, 2016|Camping & Hiking, Life|

Working from home every day while my husband commutes downtown can get pretty lonely. There aren't any co-workers around or any face-to-face meetings to attend so it has felt more of a need lately to get out of the house and reconnect with my surrounding. Yesterday was a particularly lonely day and there was a [...]
