Altoid tin witches travel kit.

I always like to keep certain magical supplies on hand when I’m on the go, but I tend to put a vile in this pocket and a crystal in that pocket and I forget what is where.

Altoid tins make great organizers for when you’re out and about. I’ve also seen many people make travel altars with these for when they are away from home or if they are still in the broom closet.

This kit can be anything that you find is most important to have based in what you do. I’m a stickler for cleansing and protecting my surroundings. So my kit includes:

- Sea Salt
- Dragons Blood Salt
- Rosemary
- Smokey Quartz Crystal
- A wand (one that I made myself using fox bone, clear quartz point, and some tigers eye and fire agate beads)
- A Tea Light and some matches
- A striker for the matches glued to the lid
- Mini bowl made from epoxy clay
- Home made mini runes also made from epoxy clay.

What I love most about this tiny tin is that it can fit into a bag as small as a clutch or even your pocket and you’ll have everything you need.

So have fun and be creative with your kit.

Discover Your Spirit Guide Spread

Mkay this spread has only been used with a Rider-Waite style (i.e. The Major/Minor Arcana, 78 cards…blah blah blah) but I’m sure it would easy be easy to tweak for Oracle Cards or other kinds of divination decks.

You start by splitting the deck into three sections. The Major Arcana in one pile, the Court Cards (King, Queen, Knight and Page of each suit) in one pile, and everything else into a pile.

Keep the piles separate and shuffle them as you like.

Cards one and two tell you about your spirit guide. What they are like and what not.

1.       (Draw from the Major Arcana Pile)This is your spirit guide’s signifier. It can tell you a little about your guide and all give you a reference for further divination work.

2.       (Draw from the Court Cards Pile) This offers you a look into what your spirit guides personality is like.

For the last three cards you draw from the remaining pile.  These three cards are messages from your spirit guide.

3.       Lesson or message 1

4.       Lesson or message 2

5.       Lesson or message 3

You can also use this spread as an all-around communication spread.  Lay out cards 1 & 2 that you already know from using the spread before and then just use spaces 3-5 to communicate.

Anyway, hope you guys like it!

I was having a hard time, and now i’m not.

For as long as I’ve identified as a witch, I thought I had trouble with ‘real’ magic. Spells didn’t come easy to me, I felt like my offerings and altars were wrong, that I was making some mistake that no one ever spoke about because every one else knew what not to do. And I suppose I was, but not exactly how I thought I was.


I was already doing magic, but not how I thought I wanted to.


My magic isn’t always mason jars filled with herbs, crystal points polished like mirrors, or billowing skirts and capes.


My magic is standing in my back yard looking for acorns in jeans and a tee shirt. Baking cookies from boxed mix for Loki. Potions from tea, emojis sent to myself over kik for spells, drawing sigils with my tablet. The comfort of silent spirits while I go about my daily life.


My spells are song lyrics from the radio, a playlist altar for my deities, wearing stone jewelry to job interviews.


Home made tarot cards that I ask about birthday gifts, a Supernatural ouija board with a glow in the dark planchette, sigils inspired by my favorite shows.


I was never doing it wrong, I just didn’t know I was doing it right.


Some days I still wish I was able to work deep in the woods, twigs in my long hair, black taffeta trailing behind me like smoke, a raven familiar by my side as I brew my potions in a real cauldron.


But then my black cat with a deformed leg will hobble inside, rubbing his head on me, and I’ll draw a sigil on my arm in gel pen, listening to a song that inspires my intent. That’s where my magic is.

“You’re not builders, you’re destroyers. I’m not going to take that anymore.” - Mother Angelica

At one point during the festivities at World Youth Day in Denver in 1993, there was a production of the Stations of the Cross that featured a woman playing the part of Jesus. Mother Angelica read an article from The Denver Post that called it “ironic… since the Catholic Church won’t ordain women as priests.”

“No, it’s not ironic,” Mother Angelica responded, “it’s blasphemous.”

She spent the next 20 minutes or so calling out the “Liberal Church in America” for its dissent from orthodoxy, destroying good things about the Church, and its failure to attract new converts to the faith.

“I’m tired of your tricks,” she said. “I’m tired of your deceits. I’m tired of you constantly making a crack, and the first thing you know there’s a hole, and all of us fall into it.

“I’m so tired of you Liberal Church in America. And everything you’ve ever done is done in silence. Nothing, nothing you’ve done, from your witchcraft, to your enneagrams, to your centering prayer, to all this Earth spirituality, to replacing holy water with sand. To destroying our churches and closing churches that are viable and ready to go.

“No, this is not an accident. We’ve swallowed this now for 30 years, and I’m tired of it. We’ve swallowed enough of your idea of God. You have really no God, you have no dogma, no doctrine, and no authority, because the only authority in the Catholic Church is our Holy Father and the magisterium, and you’ve disclaimed that.

“You don’t believe in the Eucharist, you don’t believe in the Immaculate Conception, you don’t believe in the Virgin Birth, you don’t believe in Mary’s power of intercession, you don’t believe in religious life, you don’t believe in being a spouse of Christ.

“You do believe in teaching to little children of the 3rd grade sex education. You do believe in forcing centering prayer and forcing inclusive language upon us. And now you depict Jesus as a woman. You are sick.

“But I admit you have a right to your ways. You have a right to think your own thoughts. You have a right before God and this nation to do what you do. But I resent you trying to destroy the Catholicity of the simple and the poor and the elderly by your ways. I’m not going to accept that.

“I’m a Roman Catholic. I’m a Latin rite. I believe in God as Father, creator of heaven and earth. I believe that Jesus is his Son, his only Son. I believe that the Spirit proceeds from Father and Son, that there is a Trinity. I believe that Baptism puts into my heart and soul that wondrous Trinity. It is not an initiation into a club.

“I believe that he died and he suffered and he rose. He rose. It wasn’t the rising of the resurrection of Jesus in the thoughts of men. It wasn’t something we have to remember. It was a physical resurrection. I believe in that, you don’t.

“But you spread your errors to children. And our children don’t even know the Eucharist anymore. They don’t understand that that is the Blessed Sacrament, that that is the body and blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus. Your catechisms are so watered down, they say nothing but love your neighbor. No, you’ve got to love God first. 

“I don’t like your Church. You have nothing to offer. You do nothing but destroy. […] You can’t stand Catholicity at its height, you have to spoil it, as you’ve spoiled so many things in these 30 years. […]

“We’re not going to go for all those crazy things that you’re pushing out as new, and cultural, and American. They’re not American. America was built on God. America was built to trust in God. And you’ve made it pagan. You’ve helped to make this nation pagan.

“Because you have no spirituality that attracts. Your religious orders are going down. You don’t have vocations, and you don’t even care. Your whole purpose is to destroy.

“You’re not builders, you’re destroyers. I’m not going to take that anymore. I am proud to be Roman Catholic.”
