Witchcraft 101: The Masterpost of Masterposts

 Having had my blog since the emergence of witchblr, the majority of my asks are from beginning witches looking for where to start. I struggle to respond to such asks, so I wanted to make a fat masterpost of everything I as a beginner wanted to know, as well as some personal advice and FAQ. I think this masterpost is useful for old witches as well, since we all need to brush up and be reminded of things here and then. 

 This post will be split up into 2 parts–permalinked resources and my personal, written out answers to questions. Much love!

Can we be a little less aggressive towards baby witches? (Or witches who just don’t know?)

Yes, I know there are many posts like this already but…it needs to be said. Not everyone has the luxury of what most of us know. If a new witchling makes a mistake, like calling their familiar their ‘spirit animal’, while having no ties in with Native American culture, or blood, don’t be so harsh on them. They might just not know. When I was a very new witch, I made this mistake and had tons of messages about it, although most of them were calm, which is what needs to happen more often. We still live in a time where witchcraft is taught to be feared,ignored, or both. So many people can’t get the right information or find any. 

Now, some people might not agree with me on this part (say anything rude and you’re automatically blocked. I already had to deal with some dicks today and I’m not in the mood lol.) But people literally do not know what a g*psy is. Hell, it took me a while to find out myself. But many people still see the word as a European lady, with a purple silky scarf wrapped around their head while reading a crystal ball. That’s what most people are “taught”. So, they don’t know that it’s actually a slang word. 

But what I’m trying to get at is, everyone makes mistakes. Some people make bigger mistakes then others, it’s a fact of life. But instead of being so angry towards people who don’t know, don’t yell at them or insult them.  That will just hurt everyone, and might make them shy away from witchcraft. Instead, expressing your opinion, or facts, in a calm way is the way to go. Just today someone gave me their opinion is a nice, relaxed way and it was wonderful. That was literally the first time someone has EVER been kind of our differing opinions on Tumblr, and I’ve been on here for about two years. But insulting them and being rude won’t get you anywhere.  

Daddy and I went to the thrift store on Saturday and adopted/rescued two stuffies!!! 😊😊😊😊😊
The Hello Kitty has its own stuffie!!!! That is so cool!!
And the turtle🐢🐢🐢 is because my Daddy says its his spirit animal.
(he also says brown bears are his spirit animal so I guess he has two…. I think i might have two also so I guess that’s OK)

Teehee. The turtles name is “maturin” (from Stephen King stuff)

I am collecting stuffies that either I really really like or have meaning to me or daddy. I guess.
On Valentine’s day I get my new big bedtime cuddle stuffie that gets all the love because I hold it every night all night.
I get a new one every Valentine’s day…… 😊😊😊😊

My style has changed over the year and has fluctuated back and forth. I hope to do better next year and even have a solid plan for Salem. Thanks to those who had been my art or those seeing it now. Happy New Year!

anonymous asked:

Hi I just saw your reply about using divination to contact your spirit animal. Is there a type of divination that works best for contact your spirit animal? I’m fairly new to witchcraft and have an interest in divination, so this might be a good way to get myself started. Btw, I don’t have any tools just yet and prefer not to use crystals. Thanks! 😊

There is not a best one per se, and you could really use any divination that you feel comfortable with. One that you might have access to is bibliomancy, or stichomancy which is the divination through books, or holy books. You could also try cartomancy if you have a deck of playing cards laying around. It really depends on what type of divination you know my friend, or have access to. Thank you for the question my friend, I appreciate it.
