Cosmic Witchcraft - In the Shadows 💫

If you’re a cosmic witch who wants to practice discreetly, for whatever reason, here are some tips. These activities are meant to seem mundane to the untrained eye. 

  • Take up an interest in astronomy, if you aren’t interested already - learn about the scientific aspects of the planets, stars, asteroids, comets, and other celestial bodies
  • Decorate your room with objects that represent celestial bodies - zodiac blanket, glow stars, moon in my room, celestial globe, astrolabe, posters of the planets or nebulae
  • Wear jewelry or clothing with astrological or astronomical designs
  • Go stargazing - take note of the constellations in the sky
  • Use essential oils associated with the planets in your bath or shower
  • Make celestial bath salts or shower gels
  • Choose shower gels or shampoos that are made with ingredients that can be associated with the planets (I know Bath & Body Works does a great job of listing exactly what herbs and flowers they use for their products)
  • Privately dedicate your meal or beverage to a celestial body of your choice to give thanks for its aid and existence 
  • Collect crystals that are associated with the planets or the cosmos [1] [2]
  • Make an altoid tin or shoebox altar
  • Incorporate planetary or astrological herbs into your cooking [Planetary] [Zodiac]
  • Enchant every day items with celestial energy, like chapstick, keys, makeup, your name badge for school/work, or any other item you find yourself using on a daily basis
  • Create a Nebula jar, Star jar, or Black Hole jar 
  • Write your Book of Cosmos or grimoire in OneNote so that it will sync with all of your devices, including PC, phone, and tablet
  • Draw planetary symbols on yourself where they can’t be seen
  • If you can’t burn candles or incense without suspicion, invest in a wax melter - carve planetary symbols or constellations on the wax cube and let it melt 
  • Visit your local planetarium to learn about the stars and constellations
  • Charge drinkable bottled water with moonlight
  • Make your own perfume using oils associated with the planets

Cosmic Altar & Room Ideas

Some brand new stuff in the shop!

So I’m trying to save like mad for RTX, so that we can actually eat when we’re down there, so I totally revamped the shop! It’s got a whole new layout that I think is a lot easier to navigate. Plus I added a really great summer sale!

The new products (from top to bottom):

Everafter Body Butter: My favorite thing in the world. It smells so damn good. It’s lilac and a sweet peppermint. You wouldn’t think it would smell good but oh my god it is the best

Enchanted Forest Sugar Scrub: It’s like a walk through the forest. Super pine-y and woodsy. It’s a more masculine smell and it’s amazing.

Mermaid Scales: A new bubble dust I’ve been working on. If you’ve never seen me talk about bubble dust, let me tell you I love them. It’s bubble bath in dusty, crumble form. Mermaids scales turns the water a beautiful blue green and smells like a tropical paradise

Mermaids Pearl Bath Bomb: I’ve been working with this recipe since I first opened my shop and I’ve finally gotten it to how I like. It’s super pearly and lovely and turns the bath a lovely ocean color. And it smells like a well crafted mojito. ❤️

Essential Avengers: Avengers #128: Bewitched, Bothered, and Dead!

October, 1974

This title bothers me. It teased me with alliteration and then yanked it away. But I don’t think there’s a good B word for dead. All the best dead words start with d.

Alas.

So in this issue: imminent death and relationship drama. Disembodied heads may glare at Wanda as the hairy hands of Necrodamus loom menacingly toward her. But probably not.

So the combined Avengers and Fantastic Four team are returning from the wedding of Quicksilver and Crystal (see my previous two posts, true believers! ‘Nuff said!) when nature suddenly gets mad and lightning bolts try to murder them.

Everyone dodges around trying not to get hit by lightning while Thor tries to use his command of the weather to clear things up. It does not work.

Oh and Mantis somehow manages to get in some passive aggression against Scarlet Witch while dodging lightning.

I had such hopes at the start. That she and Wanda would be besties. But it was not to be.

Anyway, in the midst of all this panicked running around and mad electrons, Agatha Harkness (babysitter for Franklin Richards and also an actual witch) stands calm as lightning bolts nearly but do not hit her and with some waving she makes the storm clear.

She explains that the storm was a mystical attack directed at her and that she was expecting it. She didn’t warn anyone because fuck ‘em.

Agatha Harkness is pretty great.
