After being bullied over her dark skin, this 10-year-old is fighting back with self-love T-shirts

🌟 Simple / “Beginner” Spells 🌟

though i do not myself believe in the concept of a “beginner” spell, a lot of new witches often ask me what i recommend for them to start with. here’s some of the simpler lot, that should be easier to perform.


🌟 simple glamours:

🌟 simple relationship spells:

🌟 simple self care spells:

This is what concerts are about. This is what they SHOULD be about.

Sometimes witchcraft is laying out your favorite stones under the stars and feeling them soak up the energy of the cosmos

Sometimes witchcraft is singing to swaying trees in summer, hoping to get a whisper in return

And sometimes witchcraft is throwing a candle really hard at someone, flipping them the bird, and telling them to fuck off with their bullshit
