I know how appealing witchcraft can be, believe me, I’ve been there. The witchcraft that we’ve seen in movies and television series; the witchcraft that we’ve read in books. We all want the little black boots, the magickal crystals, the array of candles and spellbooks, the herbs growing in our dream gardens, and the ability to be more intuitive.
I’m often asked by new witches or people interested in witchcraft where they should begin. Keep in mind that this is my personal opinion as to what should be done. Of course, follow your heart in this, it’s your spiritual journey as mine is my own. So, I figured I’d do a post on this since I get so many questions on it and lend you a bit of my own ~insight.
It’s a little surprising for me to read posts and see things on the internet in general of more “practiced” witches advising beginner witches to start their magickal journey with more smaller scaled spells, and to make sure they have an athame, a wand, etc. and to slowly but surely build up their magickal arsenal. Alhough this is soundly advice; I’d have to disagree with this advice being good for beginner witches who are at the very beginning of their magickal journey.
Why don’t we share spells for self-worth or self-love as opposed to love from a man or woman? Why are we so desperate for love that we turn to magick in order to receive it from another person, when in fact, when you get to the subconscious issue, it’s because we must first learn to love ourselves before our soulmate is able to manifest in our lives?
Why don’t we share meditations to improve our intuition and to heal our subconscious self or inner child, because whether we like to admit it or not, our power, this magickal energy we each carry within us, comes from a place of inner knowledge where we have been healed and have released fears, doubts, and any persecution…whether this has come from our lives now or any past lives. Because really, the only way to access your Higher Self, your inner truth and wisdom, your true intuition, is through surrendering, releasing and healing.
Why don’t we share spells on improving our inner knowledge or inner power? Since that’s where magick comes from to begin with? Why don’t we teach new witches to go within and find the “magickal answer” as opposed to using a bunch of tools to manifest what they desire and then see that their ‘simple beginner spell’ actually didn’t work because they didn’t subconsciously believein themselves? In their power, which is where magick is held?
So for any new witches that are reading this or that follow my youtube or blog here on tumblr, know that discovering who you are and truly loving yourself, healing your subconscious and past life selves, surrendering and letting go to receive guidance from your Higher Self and guides, interacting with your own spiritual guides, learning to live in the present moment, having awareness, and knowing how to reach a place of silence and stillness to birth our inner wisdom, I share this with you, these thingsare the things you should be exploring first and foremost when beginning your magickal journey… because how do you expect a tree to stand through rough winds or even stand at all without any roots?
Once all of the inner work is complete, the outer will fall into place.
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) : You will feel at home where you are right now. This is the time of happiness, peace, stability, success, abundance and prosperity. What you are desiring will come to you soon but don’t keep thinking about it. Just be in the feeling that it is already done. You just be happy in the present moment and enjoy being in NOW.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) : You have a creative spark inside you that needs to be nurtured and bring out. Implement your creative ideas as it will bring success and appreciation. New opportunities will come to you from different field of work. Be open to them with optimism and hope. Keep working on your idea with great intensity.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 21) : Whatever you’re conditioned to repeat in your mind comes from the past not your present reality. As your behaviors and expectations are based on the past, what if you want something better? Praise and be grateful for the abundance that is yours while sending your wishes. Act as if it were true and that will be your new reality.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) : Go into the details of what you do. Don’t take anything on the face value. Today you need to do your work with precision or else it may cause you problems. Don’t sign any documents or contracts if you don’t have all the details. Write down in details what you want and how you want it and then work on it.
LEO (July 23 -August 22) : You need to balance your life. Some aspects of your life are out of alignment and harmony. You may be giving too much importance to one aspect and ignoring other. Learn to pay attention to aspects which you must be ignoring. You also need to balance your emotional and practical sides to take the right decisions.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) : Sometimes change is awkward and painful. What was once the way of things may not work the same way now, and the way in which things need to evolve requires some things to be dissolved. It may not be easy for you but remember if the foundation is weak sooner or later it will crumble. Build a strong life now.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) : Cleanse your mind, body and soul, inner and outer world. You may be feeling drained, stuck and resentful. It is coz you are carrying the baggage of emotions, people and situations that are not in alignment with your harmony and energies. Let go of all that burdens you even if it once close to your heart. Their role is over.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) : If you see people, situations and your life on the basis of your past you won’t be able to move forward and achieve what you desire. Past is gone, you learnt your lessons and now you need to create future based on your present. Use present wisely so that your future is what you want, implement past lessons.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) : If you feel there is no way out try to find unconventional solution. Don’t get overwhelmed by the issue but if you can’t handle it in a normal manner think out of the box and handle it creatively or break it into small parts and see how you can manage it. Every challenge is for your growth and you can handle it.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) : Forewarned is forearmed. Divine is sending you warnings so if you feel like avoiding some routes don’t go on those path. Listen to your inner warning system. It’s showing you red flags as what not to do. If you want a better life you must walk out of where you are now to discover something new. Be courageous.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) : Listen carefully to other without preparing to reply them. Important messages and information is coming to you so be alert to listen to every conversation. Learn to listen deeply and find out what message you need to receive from it. When someone talks to you listen to them so that you can guide them precisely.
PISCES (February 19- March 20) : Out of the blue, a person enters your life and everything changes. When the student is ready the teacher appears. Allow your inner guidance to lead you to the people who bring you to new opportunities, purpose and prosperity for you. Pay attention to your interaction and connection with new people as it’s for your highest good.

In honour of Valentine’s Day in two days, I have decided to post a twin flame reading!
The middle card, the 9 of wands, represents the theme of the Union, whilst the cards on the left hand side, represent the masculine emotions +the cards to the right, depict the feminine emotions.
in the middle, the main theme for both, is a period of rest, or achievement after a considerably strenuous, or difficult period. This suggests that both twins HAVE made it through the worst, & though tired & slightly bruised, they will be okay & can look onwards towards a period of reward + resolution (especially in this 9 year).
On the masculine side, we see that much emotions + getting in touch with the feminine side is occurring. The presence of the ace of cups + the queen of cups, suggests that he is learning to tap into his intuition + allowing the part of himself, that is attached to her to thrive. He is becoming more aware of how his actions affect others emotions + how his actions in the past may have affected hers. He is softening at his core + learning emotional balance. This is quite interesting, because on the opposite side, the feminine is reflecting that she is focusing on herself, w/ the four of cups - they are both focusing toward the feminine + her focus on herself, is allowing her to gain strength. The 2 of swords can be intercepted as her thinking of love, though this card usually depicts a woman blind folded, which can indicate that she has turned her focus away from the union at this time, in order to nourish herself.
The 7 of swords has appeared twice for twin flames this week + it is my understanding that the male twin feels as if he will betray somebody by pursuing his twin, but he is fast becoming more comfortable with the idea of this betrayal. Much like his twin, he is becoming ready to take his own route, regardless of how this may affect what others think. His mind, is on his beloved + he cannot take it off..
The 8 of cups represents a period in time where we let go of the past + the painful notions associated with it. Past experiences may have been a powerful block in this Union.
Intention is the real power behind desire. Intent alone is very powerful, because intent is desire without attachment to the outcome. Desire alone is weak, because desire in most people is attention with attachment.
