The first act of Divergent centers around Katniss Potter’s angst about her upcoming aptitude test and Sorting, wait, sorry … Choosing Ceremony. Because in this dystopian society, everything from your neighborhood to your career is determined by your personality type, or “Faction.” Members of the “Abnegation” Faction are selfless and incorruptible, making them best suited for leadership positions. “Candor” is known for honesty, so they run law and criminal justice. “Dauntless” is the faction for military service and security – they’re mostly train-hopping sociopaths with badass tattoos. It’s basically a dystopian story about teenagers, mood rings, and high school-caliber cliques. Obviously, it was a monstrous success.

In order to determine each citizen’s Faction, the government conducts an annual, state-sponsored drug trip for teenagers. Once a year, every 16-year-old is rounded up, dosed with a psychedelic techno-potion, and observed by an administrator as they battle their way through an action-packed hallucination. You know how some inventions are actually based on science fiction tropes, like the Star Trek communicator predicting the cellphone? We’d like “mandatory high school ball trippin’” to be next, please.

Not only does the government expend a massive amount of time and money for these individual administrators to babysit tripping teenagers, the whole test is more of a suggestion than a rule. While the drug sequence is designed to reveal someone’s natural Faction, anyone can pick whatever group they want, for whatever reason, regardless of how they scored. It’s as if the government just made way too much LSD and were trying to find the most hilarious way to get rid of it.

For Young Witches 

This post is for ‘young’ witches for the most part. If you’re currently living in your parents’ household and you practice magick, this post is for you. Ok, so I guess you probably know by now that magick is for you. I guess you now know that magick is your “Home”, you now know that this is YOUR path, you know that you’re at the right place. Good. But you cannot practice as much as you want to or you probably do not really have the freedom to do so. 

You may be living with religious parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents who are not really fond of magick, let’s put it this way. So you come on here and you see all these incredibly beautiful posts, all these incredibly beautiful pictures, photos. Tools, rituals, spells, you name it, it’s all here and you know that you cannot do any of that for the time being. Many of you cannot even purchase any tools whatsoever. Don’t be despondent because of this!

I used to be exactly like you but not anymore. You won’t be a teenager for the rest of life. You won’t be living with your parents for the rest of your life. You won’t be a minor forever. So chin up! Like, now, smile and chin up. I know what it’s like but please know that you’re not the only one. I know how brilliant and beautiful people’s tools can be, their books of shadows, tarot decks, candles, herbs, incense, athames, and so on and so forth but 


 There is only one thing you need to do magick. Know what that is? It’s you, love. It’s you. It’s always been you. So don’t let the fact that you don’t have any tools keep you from practicing magick. Don’t let that bring you down one bit. 

  • You are a creator.
  •  You are THE creator.

 The tools – all of them without any exception whatsoever – can only help you with your magick. No tool can do it for you. No tool can do magick for you, no tool on its own can bring about change, results, manifestations. You are the one who brings about change through your thoughts, emotions, and intention. 

Besides, you can always craft up your own tools. I’ve seen some truly wonderful tools here on tumblr, all of them hand-made, all of them incredibly beautiful. Don’t have any magick books or can’t afford them? No problem! There’s tons of books that can be found online. So don’t give up. Don’t give up on your path. Don’t give up on your practice. Don’t give up on yourself just because your parents do not support your choice. You may respect their choice, respect the fact that they have different beliefs than you but don’t let that affect you too much. 

If you have done your ‘’soul-searching’’ and you have reached the conclusion that magick is for you, just do it anyway and again, BE CREATIVE! Eventually, you will leave your parents’ house and you will live on your own and let me tell you there’s nothing in the world that could top that off. Nothing. Just imagine it. Imagine having your own apartment, your own place. You could set up as many altars as you wish, you could do magick whenever the hell you’d want, you could do whatever you want, whenever you want it. And you WILL!

And when this happens you will be free to practice freely. You will be able to get as many tools as you wanna get. You will be able to purchase as many books as you want to purchase. For all I care you could even turn your entire apartment into an altar room (or two… or three… or more!). Gosh, I’m so guilty of that. I can still remember that day… the day I got my first tools, my athame, my first tarot deck, my crystals, my wand, altar clothes. I was literally shaking. I couldn’t breathe. That day must have been one of the happiest days of my life. I was so happy that I was gasping for air. I just couldn’t stop smiling and that day will come for you, too. But until it does, please smile, please be patient with yourself and keep practicing. Keep reading, keep expanding your horizons and your knowledge! Keep learning, keep studying, keep doing whatever it is you’re doing. Don’t give up! There is Hope. 

~~That day will come, you know it will and when it does you will be the happiest person on Earth. Smile and CHIN UP my fellow witches. ~~
