I've been re-familiarizing myself with my grimoire (again), page by page, and I thought, Why not make some fun infographics with all the pages I go through? So here's part 1 of the first page - colours! 💗💙💚 Which colour resonates with you the most? I think my personality is kind of green 🤔 💚
Kna, though I usually translate it to energy it means a lot more than that. kna is the intrinsic substance of the existence that is found on every level. this substance is present within and makes up all things as it flows through and makes up all constructs like waves inside of an ocean. Expressing itself differently in different situations in order to make up different forms. It in itself is a lot like the different forms of vital energy in which you find from various cultures and places though it does not have a life energy component to it as it is more a unit of being which is constantly becoming through its expression. This kna is constantly being interacted with by you and all other individuals and by taking the time to become connected to it and learn how it works you will be able to work with aspects of existence themselves.
Working with kna is the basis for my entire practice as it is essentially everything just usually thought about in different forms and ways, which is why it is primarily the root word for a bunch of other concepts in my practice such as the main divine Oxakna, or the skaknao which is the collective parts of an entire individual.

Does anyone know anything about the goddess of human justice Dike? It’s hard to find info about her online. Mainly I’m wondering if there is any correlation between her and Apollo. Because I’ve been feeling drawn to Apollo and the sun, but my tarot reading sent me in Duke’s direction.
Viadescioic magick: Intention, will, power, and action equals manifestation
Magick is a process of change set forth by an individual and because of that in my understanding it has four aspects that specifically make it work. though there are other things to consider when going through the process of casting magick these are the four basic variables which must be present and understood for any form of magick to be brought about.
Intention is what is intended to be brought forth.
Intent is what you want to bring forth through your manifestation. This is your goal, and what you want to accomplish. This understanding is brought into magickal workings in order to be used as a focal point in order to target your desire, and to set forth your will upon it through your actions.
Will is the push to make that intention happen.
Your will is the power that pushes you towards your intention. It is the fuel and the energy that allows your magick to move forward into manifestation. Your will be charged, focused and brought forth through many different means, and will be released in order to manifest your desires. Willing your intention to come about do to the use of power, and the actions in what you do.
Power is the force behind the push.
In magickal working this can be brought through your own personal power, or the power of another entity, or construct. Such as spirits, and deities that you have called forth, or construct such as crystals, herbs, and other objects that have metaphysical properties that are in line with your intention. All of this builds up your power towards your desire, so that your will can be able to be released through your action to bring forth your intention.
action is the thing that starts the push.
The action is the final step that releases your will, so that it will be able to go out in order to manifest your intention. this is the ritual, or working itself, and is the crescendo in point of realization between your will, and intention that leads to manifestation. It is the first action which brings forth the movement of the magick, and allows your will to start doing when it needs to in order to bring for it your intention. This act can be pretty much anything as long as it signifies your will to start working in the world.
Hello kind souls! I'm back for another weekly tarot reading! I pull some cards for the overall theme of the week and then pull a card (or cards depending on what comes out of the deck) for the beginning, middle, and end of the week.
The overall theme of the week is shown by the Five of Wands reversed, the King of Wands upright, and the Queen of Wands upright. The Five brings in ideas of conflict, the King brings in leadership, and the Queen brings in determination, but all of them, being part of the suit of Wands, deal with passion and willpower. You may see yourself in some conflict this week, but you should meet that conflict head on with stride, determination, and confidence.
The beginning of the week brings us the Seven of Cups upright and the Devil upright. It seems like you might be looking for your purpose in the materialistic sides of life, but you likely won't find it there. There's something holding you to these choices and daydreams but the cards are advising you to do some work to and figure out if you need to break free of that something and if so, the way to do it.
The middle of the week brings us the Ten of Cups upright. This is the wish fulfillment card where your dreams are coming true. If you've been manifesting something recently, you may find that some of it will start to turn your way in the middle of the week.
The end of the week finally brings us the Empress upright and the Knight of Pentacles upright. With these dreams coming true and these wishes being fulfilled from the Ten of Cups in the middle of the week, we now need to take time to work hard and nurture our success because we're not done just yet. Perhaps you should work on your intuition, or use your intuition more at this time.
Well, that is the tarot reading there. As always, since this is a collective reading, not everything will resonate with everyone, but if something in this post resonated with you, let me know! And if you liked this post, give it a like and follow me for more weekly tarot readings (when I can remember to do them and also have the spoons to do them). I also do personal three-card spread readings through both off- and on-anon asks as well as private one- or two-card spread readings through DMs which you can start in an off-anon ask.
Magick, as I would define it, is the art of change in conformity with will, which is much like it was for Aleister Crowley. Though, I would not consider magick a science as he did. For what I have found, science is a systematic methodology which specifically uses the scientific method to falsify information, which is more closely to what Karl Popper thought about science. But I would still consider it an art, as art is an expression of being. Magick is change, it is the becoming of things into new things, and us leading that change through our will. This change can be brought on through any form such as the Ladaqa, the Madaqa, and/or the Sadaqa, and is a setting forth of an individual's skaknao into the world to cause that change where it will interact with the rest of the existence's kna. This expression of an individual's art which moves aspects of their existence in order to create change through what they will to be so is what magick is.
This is the tentative list I have for episode subjects for the coming year. It is in no particular order and as always, it is subject to change. I have other ideas waiting in the wings as well, and timely subjects do like to present themselves now and again.

Lemon Seeds in witchcraft
My favorite way to use lemon seeds in witchcraft is using what nature gave me. I clean some seeds, add to tamp paper towels, place them in a baggy, and hang them on my window for about 2-3 weeks. Once they sprout, I'll plant no more than two into a tiny little cup planter and keep it on my altar. Every time i go to water it, I'm reminded to care for my altar. Every time I care for my altar, I'm reminded to water it. It's a simple but extraordinarily effective way to measure my own personal growth as well. Once they're big enough to need a home outside, I'll replant it, and start all over with another kind of seed. My orchard is ever-growing.
Wearing lemon seeds can be a little difficult to style, but it can be done. I personally let them dry for about a month before I do this. You can take a small lemon seed and slip it into a locket to carry with you. Make a little wire cage, or simply poke a hole in it and string it onto a piece of leather cord. Lemon seeds are little pockets o sunshine for your soul and represent the ability to grow and harvest a new way of life wherever you end up. Gifting someone jewelry with lemon seeds represents you wishing them a lifetime of good health, energy, and spiritual wellbeing.
Lemon seeds are also great ways to add lemon essence to things like spell jars. If they're dried properly, they allow you to harness that lemony effect without needing to watch your spell jar turn into an ecosystem of manifestation and mold.
Please consider this post open for all ideas, comments, tricks, and tips! I use a lot of interaction from my blog to come up with new things to post about - so if you wanna say something, go for it! As always everyone, be safe out there, and Blessed Be :)
Tips and Commissions for a struggling witch: Ko-Fi
There are only 2 symptoms of enlightenment, just 2 indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things do not bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.
