How To Use Tarot To Set Goals & Reclaim Your Life

Goal setting is inherently witchy, in my opinion. It’s a way to step into your full power, make big improvements in your life, and create positive change in your world.

Multi-Day Spells: Do You Know What This Kind Of Magic Is For?

Multi-day spells are incredibly common in the craft. Everyone has seen a few spells that take 3, 5, or 7 days and sometimes up to as much as a month to complete!

Are these long, drawn-out spells actually worth the effort? Do they really enhance the effects of your spells?

3 Unique Ways To Use Mirrors In Your Magic

Everyone’s heard the one about breaking a mirror and bringing bad luck for seven years, but some cultures take it a step further and believe that breaking a mirror doesn’t just mean bad luck, but is an omen for death in the household! It’s said that souls can become trapped in mirrors, and that you can even summon demons and vengeful spirits by calling them forth in mirrors… and then, I guess, be trapped in a bathroom with them. Witches, however, are a little more practical. They use mirrors for scrying, harnessing the power of the sun and moon, divination, banishing, binding, sending baneful magic back to the sender, and protection. In this post, I want to explore some new ways to incorporate mirrors into your magical practice.

How To Set A Clear, Powerful Intention & Why It's Important

One of the best ways to power your spell is to set a strong, clear intention before you begin. From my past experiences, it tends to be that a witch’s intention is a make-or-break factor to any kind of spellwork.

3 Hexes To Use When You Need To Make Your Stand

3 Reasons Why "Harm None" Is Utter Bullshit

11 Unusual Ways To Use Cords & Knots In Your Magic

5 Annoying Problems That Magic Won't Fix For You

I see it all the time. People ignore the mundane solutions to their problems in favor of magic and then nothing ever gets fixed!

We see magic and spiritual reasoning everywhere. In some cases, this is a very good thing.
