Last night, a wicked line of thunderstorms rolled through my neighborhood. The dark clouds roiled and undulated until they unleashed a torrent of rain on the world below, and while heavy drops were still falling, the sun shone brightly in the west. “We're going to have a rainbow,” I said to my husband. Five minutes … Continue reading The Magic of Rainbows, Planting a Genius Garden, + Revamping Sacred Space
When I began practicing witchcraft eight years ago, I was in a really dark place. I'd ceded nearly all of my power and agency to others, and I was willing to do anything I could to reclaim it. For reasons I still can't explain, I cast a spell, and the experience was one of the … Continue reading Am I Even a Witch Anymore?
It started on Friday with a tickle in my throat. “It's just allergies,” I rationalized, shrugging it off. I went about making my spring break plans and did the best I could to ignore the creeping feeling that I was coming down with something. Next came the stuffy nose. Then the crushing fatigue. By Saturday night, … Continue reading How Being Sick Teaches Me What’s Truly Important
My journey with the dark goddess began in the early days of my dabbling in witchcraft. As a former English major, I was deeply drawn to the landscape of characters and archetypes, and I knew I'd have much to learn through working with them on the astral plane. Accessing the astral was never very difficult … Continue reading Lessons from the Dark Goddess

I woke up this morning at 4:37 AM, and I was up for the day. This actually happens a lot. At some point during the pandemic, I challenged myself to be an uber-early riser so I could get work done before my daughter logged on to online school. Even though she's back in the building, … Continue reading Spell to Banish Frustration + Anxiety
This is probably the most important interview I've ever done, Beauty. What my guest and I have to say here is honest, vulnerable, and reflective of a larger conversation that's taking place. I guess there's no polished, filtered, way to say it: those who use social media are more depressed, scattered, and insecure than those … Continue reading Social Media Witchcraft: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly w/ Owlvine Green
I've done neither an oracle nor a tarot deck review in two years, mainly because I'd gotten to the point where I had too many decks I didn't use and I felt I needed to slow my roll when it came to collecting (if you're a collector of tarot or oracle decks, you know how … Continue reading Soulflower Plant Spirit Oracle by Lisa Estabrook
This morning has been a crazy morning, Beauties, because magical miracles keep happening to me that I simply can't explain: things I need are appearing out of nowhere, posts are randomly publishing themselves, and empty things are filling themselves up again. It's like I'm a basic witch St. Brigid--whereas she spontaneously conjured milk and cheese, … Continue reading Weird, Magical Things Are Happening to Me
