The Living Wiccan
Wiccan holidays? Non deity ones. Like celebration of fall or the earth or (is there any celebration days for the fae or other creatures?) just some popular celebrated days for wiccans and secular witches?

I’m not Wiccan, so I’ve got no clue. I know about the Wheel of the Year, and I believe Wiccans celebrate Mabon, for the fall equinox, but I’m unsure of the Deity connotations for that celebration. I don’t know of any Wiccan holidays aimed at Fae, but again, I’m not Wiccan. You might want to go talk to thelivingwiccan wiccateachings wiccaweekly or wiccan They’re a few of the Wiccan blogs I can think of at the moment.

Thanks for the plug!

Remember: Magic spells take many forms, from spoken word to candle burning, to mixing oils, to something as simple as posting an image on the wall. Your energy, focus and intent are what transform simple actions, words and gestures into magic spells.

Why are You always right?
Me: I can't wait to do this spell!
Him: Uh-huh.
Me: You know, I think I may do it tonight.
Him: Uh-huh.
Me: Well, I still do need that one thing.... But I'm sure I can do the spell without it.
Hm: Uh?
Me: It's probably not that important.
Him: UH.
Me: What? I wrote the spell, so I should be able to do whatever I want.
Him: You wrote the spell, so I know you know how important that ingredient is.
Me: ....
Him: Hey, man, you wrote it. Deal with it.
What is the best crystal to find truth and to ward off evil?

Clear quartz, or obsidian.

Jet might also work, as it’s widely used as a scrying stone; that may help you to find truth.

Hope this helps, globalhugs!

Big Cat’s Courage Charm

booksandtails:

All of us face those people and situations that make us super nervous and in need of courage. This charm is to imbue courage into an object that can be carried with you into situations you’d like help during.

What you need:

  • An item that you wish you turn into your courage charm. This can be a piece of jewelry, a crystal or rock you plan to carry with you or a slip of paper with a sigil or picture that represents courage to you.
  • Incense or a candle. Once again, choose something that represents courage and strength to you. (I chose a red candle)

Step One: Light the incense/candle and hold your charm in your hand which seems to hold the most power (this is often your writing hand). 

Step Two: Imagine facing the situation you need help with. Now imagine a huge feline standing next to you (tiger, leopard, lion- any big cat) and helping to guide and protect you.

Step Three: Slowly pass the charm through the smoke of the incense/candle while saying:

I stand in the shadow of lion
I am a tiger, fearless in my power
I am a leopard, cunning and bold
I have courage that no one can take from me
I am confident and secure in myself.

Step Four: Wear/carry the charm with you when facing your troubles and remember to smile and stay calm. Those with malicious attitudes hate seeing people smile unaffected by their malice, and little will they know that you are baring your teeth- like a big cat- in means of protection!

(charm adapted from The Mysterious, Magickal Cat by D.J. Conway)

Truth Spell

Materials:

  • Thyme 
  • A red candle 
  • An herb dish

Steps:

1. Pour the Thyme into the herb dish and say:

Purification I do conjure
So that thoughts are spoken.

2. Light the candle and say:

Passion so red,
Set to the fire,
Let the truth be said,
As is my desire

3. Drop red wax onto the herbs and say:

Mists of thyme,
Fire of red,
Send the truth to my head

4. Now go to your front door and release the herbs to the wind. You shall let thyme fly and receive the truth.

What is the Shoelace Tarot? It is any tarot deck tied up with a shoelace. When left out on the table in public, it is a sign that the deck owner is a Tumblrite and is open for conversation and/or shenanigans. The suggested challenge and response is such:

”Is that the Shoelace Tarot?”

”Yes, I stole it from the First Lady.”

Shoelaces vary by Tumblrite.

This is brilliant. I need to go find a shoelace.

PERFECT!

Also, keep in mind that you can draw a fancy magic circle from an old grimoire with all of it’s beautiful inscriptions but it won’t do it’s job if you don’t know the real meaning of what you’re drawing/writing. If you are not sure about it, using a simpler version of the magic circle will be more effective!
