lol apparently the equinox is on the 23rd….I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I THOUGHT IT WAS ON THE 20TH (yesterday). I was wondering why no one was posting stuff.
Oh well, Saturday was the best day for me to celebrate anyway, per the pictures I put up last night.
Anonymous said: I'm super new to anything like this... Is there any way to know what your strongest type of magic is? Like tarot reading or some sort of chakra or meditation to find out?
I am so sorry but I’m new to all of this as well and I honestly couldn’t give you an answer without possibly lying to you! Hopefully one of my followers has an answer for you? :D
Experiment with things until you find what you are most interested and drawn to! For example, if you are already a pretty good cook, you may be good at kitchen witchcraft.
You will still have to work hard to be strong at things. Sometimes people have an innate “knack” for one thing or another, but not always. Magic is a skill and it all depends on what you put into it regardless of “natural talent.” Paraphrased from Bob Ross, talent is just a willingness to devote time and energy to something.
I’m sure you could use a Tarot reading to ask this sort of question, but I would advise against it. Trust yourself, look inside—a guided meditation for meeting your ‘inner self’ or something might be good for this, there are lots on youtube—and don’t be afraid to pursue what you find interesting. If you don’t know enough to know what’s interesting, look around! Do some research :)
hello witchcraft tag I am a beginner with a question
I’m a teenager living with my parents and I’m trying to set up an altar without it being super suspicious. I’ve got it on a shelf right now so it just kind of looks like an arrangement of pretty things I happened to have, but I was wondering what kinds of things I could use for the elements.
I’ve got lots of pretty crystals for earth, and water could just be a small thing of water. but what about air and fire? I have a few candles for fire, I just probably shouldn’t light them, but I’ve read everywhere that air is usually incense? I definitely can’t get away with anything that makes a smell.
Feathers are a good representation for air :)! Plus, then it looks like they’re just more random pretty things on your shelf. For water you could also use seashells instead of a cup of water, too, in case your parents wonder what it’s for/why it’s there. Or keep the water and put flowers in it!
I was so busy preparing for SPX last weekend, and still recovering from the same, that I haven’t planned anything at all for the autumn equinox. At this point I am following my own personal calendar when it comes to holidays, and I do want to include the equinox.
The question is, how exactly do I want to celebrate? The season is definitely changing where I live; the first of the wonderful fall weather has arrived, and there are pumpkins and winter squashes in the grocery stores. Local apples should be appearing soon, instead of ones from Washington state or Pennsylvania (PA is of course, very close, but Maryland has apples as well :P).
HMMM, maybe boyfriend and I can go pick apples! I was doing finances earlier this week and joking about how I will be “rich” this Friday after payday, and he asked if that meant I was taking him on a date. Maybe I can combine the two, lol.
I wonder if there are any festivals going on. Time to do research.
ETA: I immediately remembered the renn faire is on right now, but we both just spent so much money at SPX, and were around so many people…maybe something quieter. maybe not a festival.
Dollar store decorations! Seriously, they have everything you could ever want. Fake flowers in fall colors, fake leaves, candles (of many colors), fall-themed candle holders, dishes, cups, placemats, tons of stuff you could decorate an altar with or serve a harvest feast on!
