Mr. Gob man, bring me some moss (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Make it the softest that I’ve ever seen (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Give us a bundle of roses and clover (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Then tell the bugs that lonesome nights are over
Gob man, I’m so alone (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Don’t have nobody to call my own (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Gob man, bring me some moss
I was feeling autumn sick today so I made vegan dutch apple pie 🥧🌻🍂 now all I need is a good Halloween movie 📽 🎃
I’m pretty good with plants, but that’s pretty much only because I used to kill so many.
Like. A ton.
Including plastic flowers.
Study what went wrong even if the plant is beyond saving so you can do better next time!
Maybe it’s an easy fix you can remember for the next plant, or maybe it’s just not your kind of plant for now.
Just don’t get discouraged!
First time ‘Randonauting.’ For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s an app called Randonautica that uses quantum mechanics to generate your thoughts into reality. You first set your location and set an intent. Mine was to find something mystical and magical. You’re suppose to think about your intent as the app generates a set of coordinates for you to walk to that’s near your location.
The coordinates brought me and my friends down to this beautiful shore. We had to climb down a VERY steep cliff but luckily there was a rope line to help us get to the bottom. The coordinates initially wanted us to swim to that rock in the first gif. As you can see, seals are lounging on top, but honestly I wouldn’t be surprised if Merfolk have lounged on top of it before either. I found these beautiful shells and explored the small pools within the rocks. I found so many hagstones, too. Overall, this was exactly what it describes to be. I highly recommend it.
drying herbs from the garden
New growth on my bahama berry tree!
Me: puts a new table cloth down for my alter
My spirit guides: mmm it’s cute:-)
Me: cool glad you liked it
My spirit guides, pouring candle wax over it: buuut I liked the old one better :-)
I was looking forward to a day away from home today, but the weather prognosis indicated thunderstorms early afternoon, so I made this spell jar and asked that the storms be pushed out enough that we can enjoy the day without getting rained on. I did take it with me to center it’s effect on me and the surrounding area.
At one point, we did see dark clouds and hear thunder rumbling, but no rain came. The day was hot, as they have been recently, with quite a bit of sun though there was a lot of wind as well (nothing horrible, it actually helped us keep cool). As we headed home a few hours later, about 10 minutes away we saw that the road was completely wet with large puddles standing everywhere. Seemed like a rain cloud had passed just north of us! And now that I am home and have dismantled the jar (thanking the spirits of nature, the wind and sky, and the sun for their assistance) I can see the rain clouds gathering above head to finally bring the promised storm. Considering what I asked, I do feel that this spell jar worked the way I had intended it to, which makes me extremely pleased and so very grateful. Because it did work, I’ve decided to share how I made it in case anyone was looking for ideas on how to work a Fair Weather Spell Jar of their own.
I do like having a jar for an effect like this, as I want the effect to be centered around the area I am in and having a small jar to carry with me aids in that.
A shard of Amber - to represent the sun and the sunny weather I hoped to call
Bay Leaf - for protection (against the rain/bad weather)
Salt - for protection (against the rain/bad weather and to keep the intent from being twisted)
Strawberry - for Luck (I used a tiny dried wild strawberry, but I’d assume a strawberry leaf or a piece of regular strawberry would also work)
Marjoram - for the Happiness I wanted this day to have
Oil of Lavender - for Happiness and Peace that I wanted this day to have
Oil of Peppermint - protection for travelers, since we had to drive to this location
Scrap of Paper with Intent Written On It - I used a scrap of a tea bag since I had it on hand, it was made of very thin paper material and I felt it would biodegrade. I actually wrote a sigil for Fair Weather on it because I felt like it, instead of the fully worded intention
I ground as many ingredients up as I could, had to crush the bay leaf, and focused on the sigil with images of sunny, rain free skies and us enjoying ourselves. I asked for assistance from the spirits of the sky, the wind, and for the sun’s assistance in pushing the rain off a little bit so we could have a good day. Then I put all the ingredients into the jar, saying what each one was for, and once they were all in I corked it and once again stated my intention.
Then I lit a white candle and sealed the cork to the bottle as best I could. I did this all last night (the night before the trip) because I felt that would give the energy I called on time to work. Today I carried it with me in my little cloth bag of interesting things, and once I got home I thanked all the spirits and energies I called upon and buried the contents of the spell jar in the garden. I’ve cleaned the jar out and am cleansing it now.
To note: this is just how I PERSONALLY handled this spell, this spell jar, and this situation. You may find other methods, other plants or herbs or crystals may work better for you. I just wanted to share my experience and what I truly believe is my success.
Good tidings everyone! I’ve begun growing some fruits and vegetables during this free time in lockdown and thought of making a little do’s-and-don’t’s list for healthy composting!
This is from my personal experience of what works well with the nitrogen and carbon levels! If you have your own little additions to help any who see this, please feel free to add them!
Teamwork makes the dream work, and I only dream of a Ghibli-style cottage in the middle of a breezy forest somewhere in my country’s highlands.
🌿 - What to put in your compost! - 🌿
• Fruit and vegetable leftovers (Citrus peels deter worms)
• Crushed eggshells

🚫 - What NOT to put in your compost! - 🚫
• Grease or oil or fats
• Diseased plants or weeds gone to seed

I hope you found this post helpful in any way, shape or form! I’m a bit of an amateur gardener but these seem to be keeping me in check quite well!
May your lives be long!

Sometimes the witchiest thing you can do in a day is find a feather or leaf or rock in your yard and just bring it to your altar. And that’s okay.
Two new listings on Etsy!
Galaxy themed beaver skull and a set of 4 woodland ornaments 🌿
Does anyone know if this symbol has any significance in witchcraft? I’m a green witch involved in vulture culture, and this is my Artemis candle (a white 3×4 unscented pillar candle, personally dedicated to goddess of the hunt Artemis)
I just realised something
It looks like a mushroom
Just yesterday I was wondering if I should be a mycologist
*note: no creature on earth is nasty. It’s just hard to be a green witch with entomophobia.

Recognizing Your Sacred Space Ritual
This is one of my favorite little rituals I like to do seasonally to acknowledge my sacred space and show it gratitude for the safety and comfort it provides me. This ritual is adapted from the one Arin Murphy-Hiscock describes in her book, The House Witch. I highly recommend that book for any witches interested in hearth and home magic! 🌿✨
two newest babies are finally on the patio! a nice old man helped pick them out for me at the nursery!
small little green dude is an ‘elephant ear’ plant, and the big dude is a ‘zebrina rojo’ banana plant!
