Beginner witch here! Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! Love your blog by the way! :)

Any advice, huh? Let me think here…..

  1. Read. Look for papers and studies on witchcraft topics you’re interested in. Historical texts are another wonderful source. Use and
  2. You don’t have to go out and buy a bunch of tools and fancy stuff. Wait until you get a good idea what you want to work with, then you can get things you need, and not have a bunch of extra stuff that doesn’t suit your craft. 
  3. You do NOT have to work with any deities unless you want to.
  4. On that last note, while you can absolutely do pre-established spells and rituals, only call on Deities to help, if you have a relationship with them. Introduce yourself to Diana before you try calling on Her for a moon ritual, it’s polite and you’ll get better results.
  5. Always look into toxicity reports for stones and plants before burning them, eating them, soaking them in water, or anything similar.
  6. And check which stones lose their color in light so you don’t ruin some very pretty stones and crystals by leaving them in sun or moon light :)
  7. Don’t fall into the new age pit-trap of wanting to be “exotic”. We have perfectly good words, traditions, and practices available to us from open cultures. We don’t need to try and sound fancy. We’re plenty fancy as we are ;)
  8. Start small. You don’t need to go do anything big right off the bat. For one, you are more likely to succeed starting with small, simple spells, which will keep you from getting into that spot new witches (and some more experienced witches can get into as well) of “Why can’t I do it?” For another, there’s less chance of attracting unwanted entities, and knowing how to deal with them when/if you do. Building up your protection spells is a pretty good route to go.
  9. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and advice
  10. It’ll really all click into place when you start figuring out how YOU can fit magic into your daily life, and in what ways magic is important to you.
