Tips for the Secret Witch

For all the witches who need to keep their Craft under wraps. Whether it is because of a lack of space, sharing your space with religious roommates (or simply people who don’t “get” witchcraft), or if you just would like your privacy, this list can help you out.

Altars

- Keep all your ritual tools in a plain box (like a shoe box) that can be easily tucked under your bed or in your closet and away from prying eyes.

- You can draw out an altar in a sketchbook. You can also add pictures printed from online or from magazines.

- Using glass jar candles can help make any magical space look mundane, and they come in a large variety of scents too (and people will always know what to get you when holidays roll around!).

- If you want to make an altar for a deity, but can’t make it too obvious, put a jar candle next to a trinket or picture associated with that deity. For example, a rose candle next to a sea shell for Aphrodite.

Magick

- Use colors matching your intent. This can mean you wear a red shirt, or carry a blue pen, or carry a green handbag. 

- Enchant your jewelry. You can make a bracelet for protection, earrings for love, a necklace for luck, etc.

- Enchant your makeup, lotion or hair products. You can also use your face cleanser as a magical cleanser as well.

- Sigils. Sigils are simple symbols with intent put into them. They can be easily mistaken for simple doodles or intricate designs.

Crystals, Herbs and Incense

- If you are planning on having herbs in your room/space, you may wish to keep them in mason jars rather than plastic baggies. Many ignorant people assume that any herb in a baggy is marijuana. I’ve had someone mistake chamomile for marijuana before…

- Drinking tea is an innocent way to incorporate herbs into any practice. Teas come in all sorts of blends and flavors (they also usually come in fancy tins that you can save!). If you have a well known fondness for tea, if you start to buy herbs to mix your own blends, most wouldn’t blink an eye.

- Gardening or house plants. This is an easy way to incorporate herbs and plants without drawing attention.

- Crystals are very pretty. Crystal and rock collecting is also a very common hobby. 

- If you don’t have access to incense, use jar candles, wax melts (with the warmers) or any type of open-and-leave-it air fresheners.

Witchy Tools 

- To make an easy pendulum, loop a piece of cord or string through a ring. The weight of the ring will act just like a pendulum. You can also use an old necklace or bracelet depending on the length of the chain.

- Playing cards instead of Tarot cards. If you have trouble remembering the cards, doodle little symbols on each card that help you remember. You can also use trading game cards (like Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh!) if the pictures help you more.

Grimoires and Witchy Books

- Depending on your living situation, a plain notebook may not deter nosey people from snooping. If you need an alternative, pick up an old book from a thrift shop to write notes in. You can add notes in the margins, write over the print with markers, or glue in your own pages. This way your grimoire can sit on your bookshelf and look completely innocent.

- Note taking apps. I recommend Tumblr for a secret witch, mainly because you can have a witchy side blog to hold all your notes and no one will know. However, there are also a lot of note-taking apps (like OneNote) that let you create various “notebooks” and sections.

- Planner notebooks or binders. Most planners have some sort of personal inserts that can be made that you can write witchy notes. It’s also a super easy way to keep track of moon cycles and sabbats. This also allows you to get super creative.

Godly Beauty Glamour

Intent: to look irresistible; to have a goddess-like presence. 

You know when you want to look like you can both kill a man or make his night? Somewhere between Cat Woman and Shiva? Or give off an unreal brilliance? 

Literally me. Daily.

Which is why this glamour is so useful. 

Start it off by taking a moment to envision the image you have for yourself. Imagine that you already have, that this is who you are. Then, begin to work the spell by combining cane sugar and pink sea salt in a glass container. 

Light an incense that fits with your desired image. Since my intent is to be intimidating as well as beautiful, I chose patchouli and dragon’s blood.  

  • patchouli = love, desire, fulfillment, attraction
  • dragon’s blood = strength, confidence, goddess glam

The next step involves every witch’s favorite thing.

Fire.

Candles. 

Yes. 

Light a white candle and set it behind the glass. Combine cinnamon with sugar and salt blend, rotating clockwise. You can use ground cinnamon or a cinnamon stick. 

  • cinnamon = quick results, a bit of sass

Grind up two rose petals and place at the bottom of a second glass. Grind up another rose petal and mix it with the cinnamon, sugar, and salt. 

Put the objects you wish to enchant in the second container with the roses so that they fit comfortably. I enchanted several makeup items, but you can use jewelry, lotion, or a mirror. 

Pour the contents of the remaining glass over the objects. You may choose to say an incantation here. I used: “I am goddess, I am light. No one can resist my sight. Moon that turns from new to full, no one can resist my pull”. If you don’t want to use an incantation, you don’t have to. 

Envision yourself radiating light, as if sparkling from the inside out.

Allow the incense and candle to burn out fully. Alternatively, you may decide to snuff out the candle after the incense has finished burning.

A Glamour of Androgyny

“See me as I really am:

not as a woman, not as a man.

I am the beautiful space in between,

a perfect wonder to be seen.”

The incantation is really the important part. But here are some supplemental ideas:

  • Visualize your face becoming perfectly androgynous as you say this.
  • Visualize yourself glowing with a yellow, orange, green, purple, or grey light– all colors associated with androgyny.
  • Design a sigil for androgyny or use some of the ones already available. (There’s at least one I’ve seen.)
  • Enchant your clothes, makeup, jewelry, etc. with this chant.

4. BATH MAGIC.

5. Use colour magic in your outfits.

6. Create your own personal rituals for grounding/banishing/attracting in doing your hair or makeup.

This little nugget definitely takes her fashion seriously. I got the sense that she loved putting her outfit together, and probably loves seeing the fashion at events like this. What a lovely mother/daughter relationship.

February: The Month of Love

 I figured this year more than ever we need a celebration of love! Whether its to remind us that despite all the hate and cruelty, love still exists or to take the time to give yourself a much needed self care session, its super important to celebrate the love in our lives! And of course celebrating Love is also celebrating Aphrodite! 

I was thinking about doing one of those daily challenges, but I don’t want this to be a challenge and I don’t want it to be something that turns into a chore. I also didn’t want to force people to do specific things on specific days. So instead I created a list of possible things you could do to honor love this month. This list is not at all the only things you could do. Please feel free to to do whatever feels right to you! 

If you share your activities on tumblr please use the tag #MonthofAphrodite. I will be checking daily and reblogging what I find! If you don’t want a post to be reblogged please put “dont reblog” in the tags so I know!

My Philosophy on Glamour Magic

Originally posted by fashgif

Hi everyone! So, lately, it seems like glamour magic is becoming very popular in the Tumblr witchy community, so I decided to do some research on my own about glamour magic. I’ll admit, at first I was very skeptical about glamour magic. I’ve seen lots of spells to supposedly change hair or eye color, even increase/decrease height, and do a lot of other crazy stuff….and I just couldn’t see it being true. But, what I ultimately found out was that glamour magic works…but not in the way that I thought. Today I just wanted to ramble on a little bit about glamour magic theory, I suppose. Here’s my glamour philosophy, explained using many references to Instagram:

In theory, it is very possible to “change” your hair and eye color with magic. It’s possible to “change” a lot of things about your appearance… but, hair dye and colored contacts would be a lot easier. Because glamour magic requires energy, like all magic, and to keep up such a drastic change in appearance would require a pretty constant stream of energy that would be very hard to maintain for more than a very, very short period of time.

You see, glamour magic doesn’t really change anything about you. It’s more like putting a filter on an Instagram picture. The real picture is pretty simple, but with the filter on, the lighting is perfect, your skin glows, your hair shines…all because of a little filter placed on top of the picture. The best part is, can anyone really tell that there’s a filter? Unless it’s super obvious, probably not. The filter doesn’t physically change the picture– it just seems like it did.

Glamour magic is like putting a filter on yourself. Nothing really changes, but your appearance is altered, making it seem like something has changed. Let’s look a little deeper into this idea:

Let’s say that I want to use glamour magic to make myself more physically appealing to other people. The first thing that I should do is get a real good supply of energy. Maybe glamour magic is just particularly taxing on my energy, but I’ve found that, at least for me, glamours require a lot of energy. I recommend grounding and taking up energy from the Earth or whatever element you use for grounding. Get a lot of energy so that you won’t completely drain yourself.

Then I would perform my spell. Maybe I have a specific glamour spell, maybe I enchant my makeup (I think this is a great way to do glamour magic), maybe I’m altering an energetic shield to be used like those Instagram filters I was talking about… the point is, I use that extra energy and put it out into the glamour magic. I am not the grand poobah of glamour magic, and I’m sure it is a lot easier for some witches, but I personally think that glamour magic requires some form of altered energy. Coming back to that instagram filter idea, I think that, for glamour magic to be effective, it’s important that somewhere in the spell energy is taken and specifically programmed and used to obtain the desired intent. Think of it like “tinting” the energy. I’ve found that one of the easiest, most effective ways to perform glamour magic is to take your already-existing energetic shield and “dye” it so that it “filters” you and alters your physical appearance to people who see you (cough just like an instagram filter cough)

Maintaining that energetic filter is the next step. I personally do not subscribe to the idea that spells can simply be made and left. I think that they require recharging and checking up on so that the energy doesn’t simply wear off. Let’s say I’ve made that shield I was talking about and programmed it to make my appearance more appealing to others– am I gonna just make that shield and leave it? Nope! Periodically throughout the day, I need to check on it, recharge the energy in it, and ensure that everything is still in tip-top shape. Otherwise, that shield isn’t gonna be nearly as effective as I want it to be.

To conclude, I think that it should be mentioned that glamours are not just for making people look attractive. Throughout this post, I’ve mainly used examples pertaining to making yourself seem more physically appealing, but glamours span much farther than just this. For example, glamours can be used on objects to make them seem like nice, pretty gifts, or glamours can be used on objects to make them less noticeable to outsiders. Glamours can be used to make people look pretty, but they can also make people look unappealing, strong, likable…they could even help a person pass as a gender other than their biological sex! The possibilities are endless :)

So that’s my philosophy on glamour magic. It’s very long and rambly, but I think it describes my theories on using glamour magic pretty well. As always, my disclaimer is that I am no grand poobah of witchcraft. I understand that many peoples’ crafts are very different mine, and you are by no means required to subscribe to my personal ideas, philosophies, or theories. By all means, research and test things out for yourself. Form your own theories, and feel free to share them with me!

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed and found this helpful. If you have questions, feel free to send me an ask. Thanks for reading,

Date Magic

I’m going to list both scientific and magical methods of adding to your attractiveness when on a date or just with that special someone.

1. Women/feminine people, wear a vanilla or cinnamon scent to attract men/masculine people. The smell is scientifically proven to arouse and attract. Both of these scents are also used in magic for love and lust.

2. Women/feminine people, wearing red is scientifically proven to attract the attention of men/masculine people. Don’t overdo it though.

3. Wear something that makes you feel more attractive. This literally enchants you and your clothing to be more attractive. It’s also scientifically proven that feeling more attractive boosts your mood and confidence. Therefore being more attractive to others.

4. Cinnamon. Spice of love and lust. Spike it beneath your bed to spice up your love life. Spray the scent in your home to attract a lover. Dab cinnamon oil onto the outside of your clothes (never put on your skin and do not use on light colored clothing).

5. A Honey Jar…oh my darlings, these are so fabulous and work so very well. Get honey, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, rosemary, a clean jar with a metal lid, paper, pen and a white votive candle with no holder (naked candle).

First, enchant your herbs whispering what and who you want to sweeten.

Next, fill the jar halfway up with honey. Add in your herbs.

Now on the paper, write the full name of your beloved three times like this:

(Name here)

(Name here)

(Name here)

Then turning the paper slightly to the left, write your full name in the same way over their’s. You name should be a bit off center from their’s.

Now fold the paper TOWARDS you 3 times.

Place the paper into the jar and finish filling it with honey. Make sure the paper is covered.

Put the lid on tightly and set your candle on top of the lid. Light the candle and let it burn all the way out.

Now keep your jar wherever and once in a while, touch it and speak to it.

6. Enchant your makeup, especially your lipstick. Hold it and visualize your magic going into it for making you more attractive.

7. Draw love, lust, attraction etc sigils on the inside of your bra, underwear or clothing in general.

And there you have it. Please remember to stay safe, be responsible and respectful.
