Bed magick (for my spoonie witches):

The setup:
🌟-Sigils placed under your mattress for pain-free rest and anything else you need!
🌟-Place crystals under your pillow (or in the case) for restful sleep or a specific use. I often place amethyst and Quartz under my pillow for headaches!
🌟-Hang herb sachets above your bed.
🌟-Keep any supplies you want nearby in case you become bedridden.

Bedridden witchy things:
🌸-Play with spare bits of energy in the room.
🌸-Listen to music that makes you feel witchy/powerful.
🌸-Wash your face with a pre-prepared cleansing spray (add herbs and such).
🌸-If possible, open a window for at least five minutes and soak in the sensations of the outside world.
🌸-Read a witchy book/write in your grimoire.
🌸-Hold your crystals or keep them near you.
🌸-Washing your sheets/blankets/pillow case = the ultimate cleanse.
🌸-Meditate and work on breathing.
🌸-Spend some time with your tarot cards or pendulum (you don’t have to use them though!).
🌸-Do some dream magick.
🌸-Drink some herbal tea.

Remember, your witchiness isn’t based on your ability to practice all the time. It’s perfectly acceptable to take as long as you need when you aren’t feeling great.

💎 Melanie’s Affordable Crystal Etsy Shops Masterlist 💎

Here’s a list of Etsy shops I’ve found that sell affordable crystals and stones! These are only the ones I’ve discovered so far, so please add on or message me if you have any more (especially if they sell bulk for cheap!). Who doesn’t love lots of crystals and stones for low prices?!

To all the secret witches...

To the witches that weren’t born into practicing families, who have no one to guide them, no resources…

To the witches that live in ultra-religious families that are scared of their parents finding out…

To the witches that live in non-religious families that are scared of their parents finding out…

To the witches that practice in the confinement of their bedroom, who don’t have an altar…

To the witches that don’t have access to all the right herbs and crystals, who don’t own a tarot deck, can’t light candles in their homes, who can’t burn incense…

To all the witches that get caught stealing things from the kitchen, who have to come up with excuses on the spot…

To all the witches practicing in secret…

You’re craft is as valid as any other. If you do everything you can to practice, it is valid. Even if you can only draw sigils in hidden places, or chant silent spells over your breakfast, you are practicing, and your are practicing valid witchcraft.

Don’t get discouraged. Someday, you’ll be off on your own, able to practice the way you want. Keep those spells that call for the expensive crystals. Keep those potions that use the herbs and flowers you never had. Someday, you’ll be able to light that candle and burn incense at your altar.

To all the witches who practice in secret, keep it up, because someday you won’t have to worry.

Witchcraft Series: Types of Witches - Green Witch

What is a Green Witch and what are their tools?

Green Witches most commonly work with earthly energies and plant energies but they also can work with crystals, herbs (i.e. herbal remedies or herb based spells),  and even work with the fae. 

I only work with the element Earth, am I a Green Witch?

If you work with only the element earth then you be more along the lines of being an Earth Witch. 

How do I become a Green Witch?

When I first started to pratice Green Witchery I was told to learn how to communicate, or swap energies, with plants. Find out when they want to be moved, talked to, watered, or if they need another plant friend. You don’t have to start here though. You can start wherever you want but if you need a guideline, I would suggest learning how to communicate with your plants and how to care for them. 

Some beginner, low maintenance plants -

  • Aloe Vera
  • Spider Plant
  • Viper’s Bowstring Hemp (or snake grass as I call it)
  • Devil’s Ivy 
  • Common Ivy
  • Peace Lily
  • Jade Plant 
  • Cactus (ouch!)
  • Chinese Evergreens
  • Echeveria
  • Hoya
  • Succulents

I live in a dorm/apartment/somewhere I can’t have a garden, what do I do?

Have no fear because pots and window seals are good enough! If you can’t have a garden for freshly harvested herbs that’s alright. Store bought is just fine. Some good dorm plants would be something small but if you live in an apartment any of the plants listed above could work for you! 

I have low spoons/no spoons for a garden, what do I do?

Low maintenance plants are honestly the best. Perhaps if you have low spoons or none you could get a Succulent or Cactus. They don’t need to be watered but every so often and are very pretty! 

I can’t afford to buy/hunt for crystals, what do I do?

Clear Quartz is the all in one stone for everything you need. So if you can’t have a bunch of different stones that’s alright because you can use a piece, small or big, of Clear Quartz to do the job.  

I want to work with the fae, what do I do?

You don’t. Honestly lets not fuk with the fae. 

But if you want to here are some posts -

I want to work with herbs, what do I do?

Educate yourself on common herbs used in both mundane practices and witchcraft. Learn the uses that you would magically use them for and if you want, learn the art of Herbalism (but if you want to that’s also fine you can learn to cook with herbs instead). 

What books can I read?

Don’t step foot near Ann Moura. Spare yourself that torture. 

A lot of non witchy books can be found at your local library! Gardening books, herbalism books, cooking use herbs (and spices), etc. etc. 

As for witchy books, I personally don’t have any suggestions. 

Any other questions I didn’t cover or that you have please send me an ask! 


SIGNED SEALED DELIVERED.  Aunt Tilly’s missing will, the missing registration form of the class reunion, the odd ransom note, the first letter from college, the last letter from Iraq…I have seen it all. Dead letters by the thousands, each one a tiny paper vessel laden with good new, or ill, profit or loss, love or pain. Tossed about on the rough seas of government protocol, a ship searching for it’s harbor, each one bearing the power to change something, and yet, each one a destiny postponed, until it comes to us.

This is in regard to your Garnet ask about Room for Ruby: What made Garnet so afraid of Blue Diamond's return, to the point of letting Greg get kidnapped, to now just shrugging and laughing off Navy making off with the Homeworld ship? Is it because one threat was immediate and the other is more unknown?

I think it works on two levels. The first level is the threat level, and the second is the personal experience.

Something that I hinted at in this post, I feel that there’s always been a double standard when regarding threats from Homeworld. For instance, Lapis was never seen as a threat until she actually started flinging people around and taking up the entire ocean. As Pearl said, “I had no idea the gem in that mirror had so much power.” And after that, the gems exhausted themselves looking for her at the bottom of the ocean; both things were not easy feats. 

Similarly, the Diamonds are known threats, and Garnet and Pearl started panicking when mention of them was made. Peridot, during her time as an unknown gem, was treated with as much suspicion in Warp Tour, but Peridot, as she grew more desperate and “dorkier,” was shrugged off as well. 

Recall Friend Ship, when they managed to snag only her foot, and Garnet also told Steven to let her go. It’s a very different attitude from that of the Garnet who relentlessly pursued all leads to her at first. To the Crystal Gems Rubies are “low level” threats by virtue of their being Rubies. And as I mention in the linked post, it’s the very same boxing-in that they accuse Homeworld of unfairly doing. And that’s precisely how the Rubies, and Navy in this episode, were able to pull the rug out from under their feet.

I’d say the second factor would be experience. Garnet and Pearl are terrified of the Diamonds. They’re terrified of anything resembling the war. It has hurt them and traumatised them deeply. Hearing that Blue Diamond was back would have dredged up a lot of feelings they were purposely keeping inside. As such they tend to overestimate what the Diamonds are capable of. Recall that they believe the Diamonds are monolithic emotionless beings, when we’ve seen quite clearly it’s not the case.

The Crystal Gems don’t have as negative memories associated with the Rubies, and I think it’s a factor that causes them to underestimate the Rubies as a threat.

When Tony Stark had first approached all of you about the fact that he was holding a formal gala, you had figured it was out of courtesy. However, when he approached you a second time and asked what exactly you were planning on wearing, it was clear that he wasn’t just letting you know. He expected you there.

“C’mon, Tony. I hate galas,” you whined, huffing as you followed the man around his lab, dreading the very idea of a charity gala. And why even invite the Avengers? It was better if the world didn’t know who you were, wasn’t it? Going to a gathering in a dress? That was the last thing you needed.
