Lughnasadh/Lammas

Lughnasadh/Lammas

Lammas, or Lughnasadh, depending on your tradition and preference, is the first of three harvest festivals, and one of four fire festivals, from ancient Celtic traditions and beliefs. This first harvest is the harvest of grains, and we can see the fruits of the union between the God and Goddess. The word Lammas comes from the Old English word hlāfmæsse, meaning “loaf mass”, and is highly connected to the harvesting of the grains and the feasts prepared at Lammas. Traditionally, this day was celebrated with the harvesting of the first grains and a feast. The ancient peoples that celebrated this festival knew the importance, though, and we can try to get back to that.

Consulting the Tarot: 7/23/19

I’m having a sort of crisis of faith lately. It’s nothing huge, just a bit of a change in my beliefs I suppose.

However, I wanted to share my tarot reading with you all.

Upcycling Candles

I don’t know about you, but I enjoy a good tealight candle. However, they’re very limited in their scents and colors. So, what’s a witch to do? Upcycle them, of course! This tutorial came about because my Nana was here visiting and made mention while we were in the store that she wanted some scented tealight candles, but she didn’t want to pay $10 for four candles. That’s fine! I offered to make her some since I have a BUNCH of tealights (I typically buy them in bulk…because witchiness…)

Don’t forget, you can head over to my shop and use the code “PC15” to get 15% off your order!

When Following Your Heart is Hard

When Following Your Heart is Hard

I’ve been conflicted over a decision that needs to be made in my personal life for a while now. For some background, I don’t like working a day-job. It takes away from what I’m passionate about, but it pays the bills. I needed some more insight into my thought process today because it is very muddled together between my head and my heart.

Color Correspondences – Tradition or Emotion?

If you’re not new to Wicca or witchcraft, you’ll know that there are a slew of correspondence lists out there on the internet for different aspects of magick.
