My grimoire’s book blessing with a second page for a table of contents.I plan on making this grimoire a lot less cartoony than the one that fell apart. This is my first permanent grimoire, so I’ll have to see what style I want to go for. It’ll most likely have a surreal space feel. It’s going to be filled with cosmic witchcraft along with other aspects of my practice.
I ended up just playing with a few colors and doing a lot of the cards with those paints rather then a lot of details on one card specifically and got 2 sketches done so here we are a few of the cards that got more work done on them and the sketches.
Apologies for any typos made. For whatever reason, I make them more often on my phone than I do on the computer. Subsequently I also have a harder time catching them when on my phone rather than when I’m using my computer.
Additionally, you are not required to agree with my point of view. You can absolutely detest it, I don’t care. But what you’re not going to do is make baseless assumptions about my character or my life and try to pass them off as absolutes. And if you do act like an ass, I’m going to give you back that same energy.
I know its in my bio but just for newer witches or those that are not aware I am an eclectic secular witch. Eclectic means my craft is not drawing from one source but rather many. For example I don’t identify as a green witch, a kitchen witch, a sea witch, but rather a combination of all of them and more. Like a jack of all trades but master of none 😉.
Being secular means that my craft is not based on any sort of religion. Like I don’t count as wiccan because I don’t believe in the gods. And I’m not a Christian witch because I am an atheist. So instead of gods, my craft worships the earth, the elements, and the universe itself. I believe that everything is made up of the universe and therefore can be connected to one another through energy.
If anyone ever has any questions don’t be afraid to send me a question in my ask box ❤ I will do the best I can to answer
are you nonverbal? Do you just hate speaking? are you a conglomerated mix of the two? do you still also need to smudge?
solution: use your smudge stick of whatever herb you feel works best or besom to cleanse your area, but instead of chanting a cleansing spell over and over make up a cleansing melody to hum! Or even some percussive rhythm of your rather clap/stomp your foot!
never forget about mixing music with witchcraft, and since you personally made up your melody or rhythm, it’ll be stronger when you use it!
Nj here! Sigils are a really interesting and simple way to incorporate witchcraft into your every day life, and one of my favourites! They’re a good method for beginners as they dont require too much energy and can be customized to accomplish a lot of different things! So since they’re so cool, I made a post to help people work with them!
A sigil is an energy infused drawing. You begin with an intention then you use your subconscious mind to shape that intention into a symbol. This symbol can take on any shape, any size, any colour, any complexity or simplicity. Once you’ve created the sigil, it contains the energy of your desired intention. You can then carry, burn, inscribe, or wear it, along with any number of other things which you decide allows the sigil to attract your desire to you! Now let’s get onto the methods of creating them!
- Write your intention down on a piece of paper.
- Simplify that statement, do this however you see fit.
- Using these letters, create a symbol. Feel free to mess around a bit and find the symbol that feels exactly right.
- After you create it, focus your energy into it.
- Write down your intention on a piece of paper.
- Remove all vowels and double letters.
- Assign each letter in the alphabet a number (1-9).
- Place the numbers 1-9 into a circle and connect the numbers in a design that feels right to you.
- Draw your final symbol, and feel free to change anything about it
- Pour your energy into that bad boy!
- Write your intention down on a piece of paper.
- Mess around with shapes and symbols that you associate with that intention.
- Combine them into one sigil that you like
So there you go! Some useful things to remember is that you should always make your intentions positive, like instead of ‘I am less lazy’ try 'I am more productive’, and that you should phrase your intentions as if they are already true, using 'I am’ instead of 'I will be’, and lastly, remember that no sigil can replace hard work, they can help you do better but they wont be able to do everything for you.
Either way, I hope you found this at least mildly helpful, and goodbye!💙
Fill a bowl with rainwater and add a hematite crystal to it. Leave it in a place where it will not be disturbed for three days and three nights. On the fourth day, hold the crystal in your hand and visualize the goals you are reaching out for in life. See them manifest in your minds eye, then simply wait until they do.
Greetings all! Here are the results from yesterday’s reading. I apologize for not having it posted earlier, however I felt compelled to extend it to ensure that as many people could participate as possible. With that said, let’s get on to the reading!
1. For those of you who chose the Pine Needles, your rune is Hagalaz.
Hagalaz says: “You are coming to a period of restriction - be wary not to extend your energies too much. Current difficulties may require major change, but this too will pass. Harship can be endured. Resilience is necessary. You can learn from the current situaion. You are being distracted by drama.”
Hagalaz is a rune from the Elder Futhark, and litterally means “hailstone”. In the north, hailstones could destroy homes and wreck crops, and so were seen as a symbol of hardship. Hagalaz is the herald of old things returning, of things that have not been dealt with. On the bright side, it also signals that once these situations are dealt with, the ice will melt and the sun will shine again - leaving us stronger and more resiliant than before.
“The sting of hardship;
the venom, the famine
of what you expect or
do not want;
the hope destroyer,
the wrecker of crops,
But this too shall pass.”
2. For those of you who chose the Pinecone, your rune is Kenaz.
Kenaz says: “The way forward is illumintated. Be the change you wish to see. Don’t just talk - embody your message to the world. No one can know everything, so learn from trusted others or elders. By illuminating our shadows, we understand ourselves and our behaviours more deeply.”
In the days of the Northmen, there were no formal schools. Therefore, skills were passed from one person to another by example over an extended period of time. If you were a boat builder, for instance, you taught others how to build a boat step by step. The teacher would not only show the student how to build the boat, but would hone in on the student’s personal fire and talents, thus making him a more masterful boat builder than even the teacher. Kenaz is both the torch and the fire of kinship. It is the force that shows us the right way forward, and reveals the knowledge we need to be our best. Northmen would often turn to elders, or others who had experience in a process or subject, and seek their cooperation or guideance. Then, those with the knowledge would share it albiet if freely, or through charge. This is a sign that you are on the right track and that the way you seek is open to you, if only you remember to stay humble and ask for help and knowledge when it is needed.
“The way the craftsman
runs his hands over the wood and knows
what is already within it,
As the creation floats to the surface,
lit from within …
The knowledge of both appears,
obvious for those that would see.”
3. For those of you that chose the Acorn, your run is Perthro.
Perthro says: “Search your memory for the answer. You have had experience with this issue before. You will be coming into a period of good luck. Ready yourself to receive luck by preparing a base of hard work. There is more than one way to solve the current problem.”
The Norse were very fond of betting games. These games included tossing dice or stones from a cup, which was both simple entertainment as well as a way for them to pass time between battles. Perthro, which is in the shape of a dice cup, considers the questions about what is down to luck and what is based on will. When dice are thrown, while we think that the outcome is just chance, how we shake the cup and the angle and strength of the toss - all influence the roll of the dice. While some people may choose to sit back, let things take their course and accept that they will get what they get - others choose to influence their future. These people base their choices on their awareness of the gifts fate has given them, and understand that the more you know, the more you know how to achieve. As we consider how to shape our lives, we can choose to push against fate or move with it.
“The dice fall
where they may,
but all is not purely fate.
Will is strong,
and flows through the tree,
and changes the carvings, too.
Great things can happen
when all combine.”
Thank you so much to everyone who participated this week! We will be doing another free reading for everyone next Sunday. Until then, may the gods bless you all!
