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.

How to Make a Poppet || Tutorial

Poppets have been used for many, many years for all kinds of magick. This particular poppet is going to a friend of mine for some anxiety relief, self-love, and compassion. Make your poppet out fabric, felt, or even paper. Use color and herb correspondences to your advantage by choosing the right fabric and thread colors for your intention. You can also stuff the poppet with herbs, sigils, and crystals. The sky’s the limit when it comes to making and using a poppet. How do you use your poppets? Let me know in the comments below!

Make a Sigil – Spiral Template Sigil Printable

If you don’t know, a sigil is a magickal symbol that you create using a positive phrase written in the present tense. They can be used for any kind of magick, but they’re normally used for things like self-love, healing, and compassionate magick. I’ve talked about making sigils before, but did you know you can use templates to make sigils? I’ve created a new printable for you all using a spiral template.

How to Cleanse a Tarot Deck — Salt and Smoke || Witchy How-To

Tarot decks, like any other tool in our witchcraft arsenal, can hold residual energy from the environment, our use of the cards, and our emotions. This energy can affect how the cards work for us, so they need to be cleansed regularly. Today, I’m going to share two methods with you that I use to cleanse my decks. There is a video tutorial included at the bottom of this page.

Dating Non-Pagans

Dating Non-Pagans

We make up only a small portion of the world’s religions, so it makes sense that most of us might end up in relationships with a partner – or partners – that do not follow our religious path. I am one of those people, so I am speaking from experience on this topic. My boyfriend and I have been together since 2008 and he does not have a religious affiliation. He describes his beliefs as agnostic, which means he does not believe in a higher power but he also does not deny the possibility of it.
