Episode 68: Witchcraft Correspondences || Where do they come from?

Episode 68: Witchcraft Correspondences || Where do they come from?

One thing I wrestled with at the beginning of my studies of witchcraft and magick was just who decided the correspondences? Who decided that clear quartz is a good crystal for just about everything? Who decided that lavender corresponds with calming? Today, I wanted to talk about witchcraft correspondences and where they come from. I discuss the animist perspective, the psychological perspective, and the medicinal perspective. This by no means is a comprehensive dive into correspondences, but I hope it gives you a chance to think about your own witchcraft correspondences and how you use them in your craft.

The Dark Moon is Rising || A Time of Reflection

If you work with moon phases, you may be familiar with the term dark moon. This can depend, though, because some witches call it the new moon and skip over the dark moon. That’s fine – your practice is your own. I don’t tend to skip over the period of the dark moon, though, and I think it is important that you at least consider it in your practice.

Easy Waterfall Ward || Defensive Magick

As promised, today we’re going to talk about how to do my waterfall ward technique. If you haven’t listened to Monday’s podcast episode about defensive magick, I definitely recommend doing that first. Defensive magick is an important skill for anyone to learn how to do, and today I’m going to teach you how to do my own waterfall warding technique.

This spell requires mixing together a specific wash for use on your doors, windows, and any other entrance into the home. I’ve included my recipe below, but feel free to change the herbs and oils used to suit your own needs.


  • White Vinegar
  • Water
  • Salt
  • Herbs (I used Juniper and Oregano)
  • Essential Oils (I used Sage)

How to Cast

  1. Mix your ingredients together and say your spell. I used the following words…
    “Energetic waterfall,
    protect my hearth and home.
    Cleanse and ward all entrances,
    wayward energy shall not roam.”
  2. Let the wash sit for about 10 minutes to steep the herbs and allow the salt to dissolve.
  3. When you’re ready, pick an entrance to start at. If your home has more than one story, I recommend starting on the top floor. If you’re in a multi-story apartment, doing your own home and entrances will suffice.
  4. Start in the corner of the door/window and let the water drip down to the floor as you move from one corner to the other. If you’re worried about the floor getting too wet, place a towel down to absorb the extra water.
  5. Wipe down the threshold or border of the door/window. As you do this, envision your energetic waterfall cascading down to surround your home.
  6. When all entrances have been washed and warded, dispose of your wash in a safe manner. NOTE: Do not pour the wash on any plant life. The vinegar is acidic and can kill plants.

How to make Loose Incense

If you’ve ever wondered how to make loose incense yourself, I definitely recommend trying it out. The process is simple! Find the plant you want, dry it out, crush it up, and then burn it. Loose incense can be a smoke-free option for incense if you’re in a position where you can’t burn things such as a dorm room. This loose incense can be used in an oil diffuser with a candle OR in an electric diffuser for the added benefit of being flame-free. It can also be burned on a charcoal disc, but for this method, I use my oil diffuser.

Well look no further dear reader, I’ve got the answers for you in these three simple steps: Cleanse, Charge, and Rest. So how does it all work? Let’s take a look.
