Witchcraft is…

  • Listening to chants and witchy music while studying schoolwork
  • Watering your plants while telling them or singing to them how beautiful they are
  • Placing crystals in your garden to help your plant babies be happy
  • Drinking mundane tea and making it magick
  • Recycling whatever you can to become part of your craft
  • Seeing the message the butterfly or animal gives when they pass you by
  • Writing sigils and symbols in your shower for a cleanse and all good things
  • Giving your loved ones protection charms
  • Taking care of all the stray animals in your neighborhood
  • Sending loving energy to your friends and anyone who needs it
  • Listening to the wind and feeling the earth under your feet
  • Gazing up at the stars
  • Picking up trash in the woods for the environment
  • Leaving pretzels or other snacks for the birds in the parking lot
  • Singing or dancing to uplift spirits
  • Seeing everyone and everything as connected


It’s important to know witchcraft is more than dancing in circles while chanting with a coven, it’s so much more than having your entire home covered in crystals, herbs and other things. Witchcraft is something that happens every moment, every day. Even when some don’t know they are doing it.

I know we used to make “Fucking Alchemists” jokes whenever someone freehanded a perfect circle but nothing beats what happens in the actual show?

Like Mustang literally takes a scalpel and carves a perfect circle and all of its little matrices and geometries into THE BACK OF HIS HAND? He literally had one shot at it and he was in the process of bleeding to death so its not like he could practice or anything just… He went for it in one.

Just a friendly reminder that Tokyo Ghoul wouldn’t have happened if Kaneki didn’t wan’t to go on date.
