Science and Witchcraft are not enemies
  • A scientist will tell you that our cells are powered by combustion reactions. Combustion is just another word for the reactions involved in Fire.
  • A scientist will explain that your blood is the same salinity as the oceans were 3.6 billion years ago, when living creatures first incorporated circulated Water into their basic structure - the precursors of blood.
  • A scientist might teach you about the millions of tiny chambers in our lungs called alveolar sacs that inflate and deflate every time we breathe, allowing our blood to mix with Air to feed our cells.
  • A scientist could tell you about the many minerals and metals that make up our bodies, from the metal in our bones to the phosphorus in our DNA, constructing our bodies out of Earth.


Our bodies are made of Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit - the Elements of Magick

They’re also made of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorous, sulphur, iron, chlorine, potassium, sodium, and a million other elements and compounds - the Elements of Science


The Elements of Science and the Elements of Magick are not mutually exclusive. 

Science and Witchcraft are not mutually exclusive.


You can be a scientifically-minded Witch, or a Witchcraft-practicing scientist, or anything in between. Your magick does not have to conflict with your science, and your Elements of Magick can be the same as your Elements of Science. 

Illuminate the worlds of science and Witchery with your knowledge and your light. Let yourself shine, a beacon of bright knowledge and wisdom in the night of ignorance and fear.

Well Water

Well Water is always ignored in posts about water magic, so here goes. 

Well water is fucking powerful. It has the qualities of both water and earth, since it’s come from deep. It’s a perfect water to use for spells concerning memories, ancestors, remembrance, wisdom and anything “deep”. It has this guttural, it’s deep, it’s dark, it’s heavy and filled with powers. Get in touch with your roots, past life, lost memories, lost connections and inner self. 

Well water is also good for healing magic, since it has a deep and soothing feeling. It’s typically best for anxiety, stress, restlessness, and any illnesses to do with an excess in air, such as join pain, things that target your nerves or your mental. Best not ingested unless it’s pure.

Also great for wishes, since you throw a penny in the well to make your wish come true.

And of course, amazing for curses! Especially murkier wells.

Please don’t forget well water, folks. It’s an important connection to the past, to our roots.

I say: I’m okay.

What I really mean: Get the hell out of here with this 13th zodiac bullshit. My sign isn’t changing because of some random assholes thinking to themselves “hmm let’s fuck shit up” No! I won’t stand for this! I’m still whatever sign and element I am! Plus, having the Ophiuchus in the list would fuck up all the elements. There are 3 earth (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo), 3 air (Aquarius, Libra, Gemini), 3 water (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio), and 3 fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius). Ok? Adding a new one would unbalance the elements. You don’t unbalance the elements.

earth signs are so practical and down-to-earth. they are realistic, they know how the world works.

but the grand irony of earth signs is that although they are practical and they know the ways of the world, some of them can’t wrap around the fact that life is not just made of simplicities that are supposed to make sense. the world is more than that, and the earth signs are often baffled by such complications. taurus clings onto what they know, virgo works to create order, and capricorn tries to make a mark in the world that makes sense to them.

and that’s where the water signs come in. they embrace the beautiful, unrealistic nuances of the world. they may not understand how the world works, but why it works. cancer feels the world, scorpio investigates, and pisces embraces it. they embrace everything they see, but with all that acceptance, they can get lost in their emotions.

and that’s where the air signs come in. they make sense of the messy acceptance the water signs are lost in. gemini makes sense of spoken words. libra makes sense of people. aquarius makes sense of society. they place the stabilizing logic that emotions can’t establish. the most beautiful thing is that this logic is smart, but also open. however, logic can’t always show everything, and the drive of the world is absent.

and that’s where the fire signs come in. they ignite and drive the world to move. they burn and break what is known and established - they rebel against what is know and ignites passion. aries starts the fire. leo dominates the world in its flames. sagittarius observes the ashes afterwards and creates millions of possibilities.

and then it starts all over again. the four elements are very much distinctive, unique, and powerful in their own ways, but they can’t live without the other.
