Mermaid Toast! And Tarot!

Mermaid Toast! And Tarot!

Reading Time: 3 minutesHappy Mermaid Monday! My husband came across a picture of “Mermaid Toast” and knew I would love it. He was right. Once I saw this magical Mermaid Toast I had to make my own. OMG Mermaids! Here’s the thing, I’ve recently switched my already complicated diet (gluten free vegetarian – no eggs) to a keto, high fat low carb version. If bread and toast weren’t a problem before, it sure is now! Fortunately, this kitchen witch loves to experiment, and…

DIY Salt Circle Bottles and Element Markers

DIY Salt Circle Bottles and Element Markers

Reading Time: 3 minutesSalty Situation Every witch or magician knows that salt is a powerful substance for grounding and protection. Nothing feels more magical than sitting inside a circle of salt and candles and getting your witch on. Salt is the perfect a-salt weapon against negativity! (I’m not even a little bit sorry for that one 😛 ) As useful and awesome as salt is, there are plenty of times when pouring salt on the ground is just not… kosher. (Ahaha! Still not…

Travel Altars for Magick on the Go!

Travel Altars for Magick on the Go!

Reading Time: 4 minutesWhy Travel Altars? Travel altars are great for more than just travel. They are compact, portable, and easily put away, so they are also great for the magickal practitioner who needs privacy or just doesn’t have a lot of space.

Maybe you’re a traveler and your tools must fit in a suitcase…

Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day that Don’t Require Drinking

Reading Time: 4 minutesThe green beer. The tacky hats. The “I’m Not Drunk, I’m Irish!” shirts. You know these things. Most people in the U.S. celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by dressing in green, covering themselves in glitter (which I have no objection to— I love glitter!) speaking in horribad “Irish” accents, and getting drunk out of their minds. Do what you want and be safe (please be safe), but if that isn’t your style, then I have some other suggestions for how you…
