new community blog


There’s expectations to know
Know who we are
Know what we want to be

And sometimes it’s easy
Self-acknowledgement and confidence
Planned your future the entirety of your past

But other times, it’s hopeless
Uncertainty and discovery
Looking for something to grab

moon phases.

new moon:
setting intentions.
hard energy.

waxing crescent moon:
resting, focusing.
soft energy.

first quarter moon:
taking action.
hard energy.

waxing gibbous moon:
trusting, holding faith.
soft energy.

full moon:
hard energy.

waning gibbous moon/disseminating moon: 
receiving, expressing gratitude.
soft energy.

last quarter moon:
returning, giving thanks.
hard energy.

waning crescent moon/balsamic moon:
reflecting, resting, restoring.
soft energy.

  • new moon: the moon is literally new. a rebirth. use this moon for intentions to do with fresh beginnings, starting again, cleansing. 

  • waxing moons: the moon is increasing its size, it is opening; use these moons for intentions about gaining, growing or expanding.
  • full moon: the moon is at full charge, and can be the most powerful phase in the moon cycle. use this moon for intentions to do with power, clarity, or psychic ability.

  • waning moons: the moon is decreasing its size, it is closing; use these moons for intentions about ridding yourself of something (or someone).

application to the craft:

focus is the most important aspect of bringing an intent to manifest itself. focusing your energy can be made simpler by working with a compatible energy in the world as you focus that intent. 

if the world around you is releasing an energy complementary to yours, it can be easier for that energy to find its way into reality; as opposed to facing any natural adversity.

  • cast soft energy intents in soft phases of the moon. (tranquility, creativity)
  • cast hard energy intents in hard phases of the moon. (strength, control)

this, in my opinion, is the concept of “the power of thought.” when more than one person thinks a thought, that thought holds more weight. this could explain why people practicing or praying together can often yield stronger, or more immediate results. it is a similar reasoning as incorporating tools and ritual into magick, as well.

your energy is a power in itself. but using the power of the elements, the environments, and the world can serve to add to that power. 

If you or your blog is Christian

Please reblog and follow those who reblog. I’m looking to establish a network of Christians that are committed to prayer for one another and for a semi-public internet space to be open and deeply honest about struggles and fears. We are called to community and genuine love. Wherever this reaches, I hope you will publicly declare yourself a Christian and be unafraid to ask difficult questions and ask for help via prayer. Let’s use the internet to strengthen the church and each other’s faith.



As each day passes I get happier and happier with my decision to avoid taking a science based subject at university. Honestly, I love biology but I hate practicals so much.



Today I did a ten mile sponsored walk to help raise money for my friends gap year in Japan and, as a result, I haven’t actually done much studying but I’ve done enough to take my essay total to 19 over two weeks.


25.03.2017 | y2s1 • week 4

hi! i’m finally posting on tumblr,, it has been quite a long hiatus since summer break. also, i’m mostly on instagram (i’m @cayliestudies too).

so this is my study space in my new apartment! i have not unpacked everything so i just added a few bits and pieces to my table for the moment. currently working on a psychology report so i plan to get that done first before unpacking everything & decorating ✨✨✨


I just finished my last semester at community college and I’ve never studied so hard in my entire life. This semester I took 4 English courses and I now know I made the right choice with my major.

I was also super proud of the way I annotated my textbook for all of the stories/poems I had to read. My handwriting looks like chicken scratch but it was so hard peeling off each sticky note to return my rented textbooks.



Today has literally been the definition of productive. Moved on to A2 biology revision that I have definitely been neglecting.

witch mentoring

because of the response to this idea, i’ve decided to remove old posts (with old information) and update everything together.

in an effort to help preserve witchcraft as a whole, as well as expand and involve the community, i’ve begun an assignment program that links experienced and knowledgeable witches, with new beginner witches. these “little witches” are able to be guided toward safe and reputable practices and sources, and their “big witches” have the opportunity to work within the community and impart some of their own practice with another.

there is also a intermediate category for people who are looking for a witch they may be compatible with to help learn and grow together by discussing and guiding each other.

if you’re interested in being a part of it, please send me an email at i will send you the information and a small survey. (after that exchange all communication will be via tumblr.)

the first group of witches have been assigned, aside from two witches with missing URLs:
Finn  thank you, Finn!

please get in touch we me as soon as you can, so that i may put you in touch with your assigned witch.

i will now be working on the assignments for the witches who sent me an email after the first group was collected. there are still plenty of spaces available in this group, and i definitely need more Big Witches in order for assignments to be completed, (though i am still taking Little Witches as welli am definitely calling on the experienced witches on Tumblr, because there are few, and fewer who are willing to help our new witches. 

i am grateful for the interest, enthusiasm, and attention everyone has shown in this idea so far; i feel fortunate to play a small role in it. thank you all for your patience more than anything.
