Have Wise Women & Witches Improved The Modern World?

It’s hard to determine all the contributions witchcraft has made to modern medicine and science because often credit simply wasn’t given to a witch. However, it’s undeniable that modern healers owe a debt to the wise-women who patiently walked out into the forest in the middle of the night to gather herbs, learned exactly how to prepare them, and administered them to patients — with their only intention being to help those in need.

7 Ways To Use The Power Of The Sea In Your Magic

The 8 Magical Benefits Of Social Media

Social media is a controversial topic, particularly in the spiritual community. People say social media is distracting. It causes us to compare our lives to others. It’s addicting. It spreads misinformation. And the list goes on. But there’s another side to this ever-changing internet phenomenon. Despite its flaws, social media can be magical. If you approach it with a witchy mindset and intuitive discernment, you’ll be able to harness its limitless power to elevate your witchcraft.

5 Awesome Ways To Cast Spells Without Any Tools

If I collect every witchcraft related item that I own together it all fits into one small basket, with room to spare. More often than not my spells are whispered incantations, hastily drawn sigils or entirely performed in my head. I have spent months of my life thinking I was a bad witch because I never did “real” spells! What I didn’t realize back then was that I WAS doing real spells and I was doing them VERY well because I was managing to produce powerful magical results with NO tools or ingredients.

How To Use Crystals For Powerful Ritual Baths

Avery Hart

Ritual baths are a perfect way to relax and reconnect to your magic after a long day, or busy week. You can add all sorts of magical ingredients to your baths such as herbs, flower petals, salt, wine, milk and honey, or oil, but my favorite thing to add to my ritual bath are crystals from my collection. They’re easy to use, once you know how to use them, and you don’t have to worry about cleaning your bathtub after! If you’re curious about how to use crystals in your ritual baths, here are some things you need to know.

How To Enhance Your Magic With Music

Music as a magical medium is nothing new. Witches have long turned to music to not only set the mood but also as part of their craft. Because although candles and incense do a great job of making a ritual feel witchy, music is different. Some say music and the physical effect it has on us is magic unto itself. Not a difficult concept to accept, especially when you think about your favorite song and how it has the ability to make you remember, make you feel, make you get up and dance. This is the spell music casts on all of us.

4 Ways To Use Magic To Make Your Winter Witchy

A lot of people I know have a love/hate relationship with winter and the cold weather it brings. This winter, I’m fortunate to be living in southern California, but I’ve experienced many frigid winters in the midwest. It’s funny—I used to count the days until the temperatures would rise above forty degrees F. But now that I’m in California, I gotta say, I kind of miss it. So for all you witches that are hunkered down with a fleece blanket, watching the snowflakes swirl around outside your window, give these cold weather spells a try.

How To Use Psychology To Guide Your Color Magic

As you grow into your craft, you’ll learn that witchcraft isn’t a cookie cutter endeavor like school or a random job, with a one-size-fits-all method for success. You develop your own style, you learn what works for you, and you find new ways to practice. I tend to think that the point of most things is to evolve and grow into something better over time. You can create your own personal correspondences based on your experience — not somebody else’s — and in doing this your craft becomes your own. In this post I want to provide you with information so that YOU can decide what these colors mean to you based on your own personality, making your magic more personal and therefore more powerful.

How To Make Your Home a Magical Sanctuary

Integrating your craft into your home can be a daunting task. Unless you’re just a stellar housekeeper your home is likely at least a little messy all of the time. Unopened mail might still be sitting on the counter, that pile of laundry that you just didn’t get to this week is still on the floor or maybe you’ve just got a little extra clutter from too many missed spring cleanings. Despite how much these things can make your space feel distinctly un-magical, making your home into a sacred place for yourself can be quite simple.

Voodoo In The Modern World: A Gris-Gris Love Story

I got my gris-gris bag during a rough time in my life. Even though I was applying to jobs all over town, no one was calling back and my bills were bearing down on me like a freight train. Being low on funds was nothing new, but I’d always been able to find a job before. As my desperation kicked in and I started googling how much kidneys were going for these days, my sister suggested we go downtown to the witch shop. Just like that, my gris-gris love story began to unfold.

5 Simple Banishing Spells for the New Witch

Banishing is a basic skill that all witches should cultivate, it’s one of the cornerstones of our practice and often one of the first things we learn as new witches. Whether banishing an unwanted spirit, a person you no longer want in your life or even a situation that you’re sick of being in your life, banishing gives you the power to clear and remove things from your life, giving you the power to control more of your life.

This can be done before beginning something new, like a job or going back to school. Typically, I write spells and rituals that don’t take much time to perform, but Capricorns are all about going the distance. This magic is meant to tie into your new goal and foster long-term success.
