Feather-set’s “Habit Stopper” 

I’ve amassed a small collection of corks from my family’s hobby of wine-drinking, and I’ve figured out a small, easy little spell you can do with the leftover corks. 

What you’ll need:

  • A cork
  • A ribbon (in the colour of your habit [for instance, a habit of superfluous spending can be green, etc.])
  • A permanent marker 

Optional:

  • A screw or screw circlet
  • Twine

Take the ribbon and tie it around the cork, then write the habit you wish to stop on the ribbon, and that’s it! Keep it in your pocket or hang it up somewhere where you can see it (using the screw and twine). Feel, play with, or look at it often to remind you to stop said habit. 

This is my view on how divination/tarot/runes etc work. Let me begin by saying that this image just presents my own personal theory which may not resonate with everyone or even have any truth to it whatsoever. This is just how I see things and maybe someone else will find it useful or have some comments or something.

Hopefully the graphic is pretty self-explanatory. If it isn’t, I’ve made a rather long post that gives more details on the same basic ideas, which you can find here. I hope that the image above is pretty, though, even if your personal views don’t fit with mine. Who knows who’s right at this point? This image is just my thoughts.

The Ghetto Tarot

What is the Ghetto Tarot?

The Ghetto Tarot is a photographic interpretation of the traditional tarot deck in the ghetto. The scenes are inspired by the Rider Waite Tarot deck (originally designed in 1919 by artist Pamela Colman Smith) and are replicated together with a group of Haitian artists called Atis Rezistans (resistant artists) in the Haitian slums using only material we were able to find or create locally. On several cards we used the artists art, that includes symbolism from the Voodoo religion to embody the important meaning of the cards original symbols.

While the cards were designed many years ago with the situations of the time when the world was very different, they resonate today with timeless symbols that can be applied to our busy modern world. And not just our modern, western world, but also to any other continent, country or culture, including the Haitian Ghetto. So here comes a temporary, provocative and vivid tarot deck!

The Oracle of Babylon

John Dee

I am the daughter of fortitude and ravished every hour, from my youth. For behold, I am understanding, and science dwelleth in me; and the heavens oppress me. They covet and desire me with infinite appetite; for none that are earthly have embraced me, for I am shadowed with the circle of the sun, and covered with the morning clouds. My feet are swifter than the winds, and my hands are sweeter than the morning dew. My garments are from the beginning, and my dwelling place is in my self. The lion knoweth not where I walk, neither do the beasts of the field understand me. I am deflowered, and yet a virgin; I sanctify, and am not sanctified. Happy is he that embraceth me: for in the night season I am sweet, and in the day full of pleasure. My company is a harmony of many symbols, and my lips sweeter than health itself. I am a harlot for such as ravish me, and a virgin with such as know me not: For lo, I am loved by many, and I am a lover to many; and as many as come unto me as they should do, have my knowledge.

Do you think making a black candle with sage would be the ultimate negative energy cleanser?

“Ultimate” may be a strong word, but I think it will be pretty effective, especially if you give it that demanding, energetic intent through your own power as well. Most hand-made things are more powerful than anything store-bought anyway. 

If you feel like it’s the strongest negative energy cleanser for you personally, then of course it will be. It’s all about intent moreso than what the item actually is.

I just read your habit-stopping post, and I had a question. how do I know what colour of ribbon to use (I have a few very bad habits I would like to stop and would like to know what colour ribbon to use) sorry if this seems like a silly question, I've just started practicing :) thanks x

I usually try to reference a colour chart like THIS, THIS, or THIS when choosing colours, but sometimes I just find a colour that I feel is “right.” If you don’t think any of the colours really fit, you can always use a plain white ribbon, which is basically all-purpose. 

Hope that helps (:

Secrets, Realizations, and Admissions

I’ve never been fond of secrets when it comes to witchcraft. Truth be told, I didn’t like them because they blocked me access to things I believed myself entitled to back in the day. Fast-forward to last year, and though my reasons may have changed, I still didn’t like secrets. After all, how could anyone truly learn if they could only get so far before hitting a road block or having a door slammed in their faces? Up until recently, I’ve made it a point to be incredibly open about my experiences and practice. I’ve never really considered what I do to be secret or special. It just is. It exists without anything unique. Put bluntly, my practice is bland. I’ve searched and searched and searched for something open, honest, and truthful, something which ignites the fire in me and gives me that feeling of quickening in my blood. When I found “A Cornish Book of Ways” by Gemma Gary, I got exactly what I was looking for. The magic works, the rituals are amazing, and the lore was fantastic. Now however, it’s not enough, and that boil in my blood has reduced itself to a faint simmer. One can only do the same thing for so long with no growth before becoming bored.

As I walk this crooked path, I am met with new challenges everyday. I hear or see something which stops me dead in my tracks and makes me shiver down to my core in the best way. It’s not enough anymore though. It’s not enough to go through the motions and follow the books. It’s not enough to speak words of conjuration without any feeling of growing or becoming despite my exhaustive efforts. How does this play into secrets? It’s quite simple really. I’ve never kept secrets regarding my practice, and the spirits and powers that be know this. I get that now. One of the reasons I’m so closed off from the realm of spirits is because I am too open regarding what happens to me. I always thought that being silent meant not telling people you are a witch. While many people may view it that way, I don’t. For me, keeping silent means not telling people about the intimate parts of my practice; keeping close to me the things spirits share with me. There may not be much in that category, but there are a few things. The catch 22 here is that I need to talk about what happens to me in some way or another. Whether through text, verbalization, or music, my experiences have to be let out. Luckily for me, this realization came once I started my book of shadows. Not my spellbook, but my book of shadows.

Starting my book of shadows has given me an amazing outlet for the things that happen to me. When I realize a spell has worked, a spirit has contacted me, or a tarot reading was so spot on it was creepy, I now have a place to put this information. Truthfully, that’s why I started this blog. Tumblr acted as an outlet for my craft when I didn’t realize how to create one. This is posing a challenge to me, as it leaves me wondering what I can and can’t post on my blog, but all things in due time.

As this realization comes to me, I’m suddenly struck by another, more powerful epiphany: I am still petrified of the Otherworld. It’s not a constant fear, but it is a fear I have never actually taken the time to face or deal with. Until yesterday and hadn’t even admitted it to myself. I denied the truth and tried to bury it under spells, rituals, and hollow words. I thought my desire to fly would overcome my fear of falling, but it’s become apparent to me that they are equal. What do I do with this information though? I am the kind of person who will gladly face my fears head on, no questions asked. How then do I face this fear? How do I conquer what I cannot do? How do I overcome a fear of flying without actually flying? My desire is there, my purpose is there, and yet every time I try to fly, I am firmly grounded. Perhaps it’s also a latent belief that I can’t do it, that I am not allowed. Perhaps it’s a fear that until I have been initiated by another, come near to death, or am painfully destroyed and recreated by the spirits around me I won’t be able to escape the bonds of the body I inhabit. These fears aren’t rational, and I know that. The subconscious mind doesn’t have to be rational though, and in fact I firmly believe my subconscious kind was scarred many years ago when I had a downright horrifying experience with a nasty entity. Combine my Mother teaching me to fear spirits from the time I was a child, and you have a wonderfully potent mix that can be very hard to break through.

As it stands now, I’m researching ways in which I can face my fear of the unknown. When I feel the presence of a spirit, it scares me. I refuse to be rules by my fears though, and I consciously relax and let go, reminding myself that if it’s truly something wishing me harm I would be much more concerned. My fears are deeply ingrained in my mind, but it’s part of my personal challenge as a witch to overcome my fears and move forward.

Secrets, fears, revelations, and admissions. Things which are never easy to come to terms with, yet each aspect plays an intrinsic part of the witch’s life. I get that now, and now I believe the truth of my path can fully be realized.
