space or under the sea? drawing or painting? bath salts or bubble baths? lavender or sandalwood? sauna or jacuzzi? peppermint or pine? on the beach or in the ocean? birds chirping or waves crashing? fuzzy or smooth? hot drinks or iced drinks? lying in the sun or lying in bed?

Now she shines [        ] like

🔮Crystal witch tip 🔮

When charging your crystals under the full moon, place a circle of salt around them (preferably sea salt or anything like that. You can use normal table salt, it just won’t be as effective. But for witches who don’t have access to it, it should do 😊). It’ll charge them way more and make them pretty strong. The first time I did it, my hand wouldn’t stop tingling from all the energy until an hour after I put the last one down. It works wonders haha

(Edited: please do not place salt on the earth. It sucks the moisture of it the earth and it really bad for it. Use a stone dish or normal dish instead, or charge them inside. Since I live in the city I don’t charge my crystals on the earth so I forgot to mention this. Thank you to my fellow witches who reminded me ❤️)

Just curiosity : what the tag mood : Sicilian summer means to you?

Everything languid, dreamlike. Dimlit soft-focused 60′s filmography; putting suffocating heat into color. The scent of ripe figs trampled under bare feet, orange blossoms, and sea salt tang hanging in your hair. Tangled sheets. Glitter: the gold hoops women slip onto their bare arms and ears, sunlight haloing skin. Everyone a little divine. 

Fun Fact: Most reptiles can’t osmoregulate excess salt, unless they’re specifically adapted to possess a salt gland that allows them to excrete salt from their body.
Sea snakes, for example, possess a salt gland under their tongue that allows them to expel excess salt from their bloodstream via the mouth. Many other marine or coastal reptiles have similar salt glands.

Most terrestrial or inland reptiles, like Mr. C-word the hognose snake pictured above, do not possess a salt gland and excess salt will cause renal failure and death.

Too much salt kills reptiles. Please avoid exposing your reptiles to high levels of salt.

This week we’re celebrating hidden histories – they’re stories that unearth parts of the past that you probably never learned about in class, and give you a whole new perspective of the world. Check out this infographic for 15 of our favorites!

The Sailor. The Sea

Grey-blue waters freeze at the caps
As if trying to touch the same grey-blue sky
I steadied myself against her threatening storm
Waves mist pelting my skin
Pin pricks allowing me to feel alive
Me…the sailor
Salt ‘neath nails looking windward
She…my sea
Getting under my skin again
I will sail her waters
Fair winds be damned.

He wears the dawn into the day,
And breaks on the horizon;
If I could touch him only once,
I would.
I would give up my depths to be apart of his sky,
Reach out my waves to get a glimpse of his days;
In fleeting moments I brush his skin,
And it is I who is thirsty,
And I who is trembling,
And I who is drowning;
In the well of him.
He is a ripple on my water,
A tremble in my wake,
And I would have him if I could;
But His bones are not bound to me.
He the Sailor,
I;
The Sea.

witchlearningwitchthings  asked:

Does anyone have any suggestions for an easy, lowkey, protection jar? As an empath, I have my pocket rocks that I carry with me on the go, but I need something for the home. Not against a spirit or anything, just all the political negativity going around; I need my home to be safe. I have some black salt that I can't sprinkle around my parent's house, but I'd love to use it in this jar or spell.

@witchy-woman has a great protection spell jar that is more about the mental protection than physical protection, might that work? Here’s the link to that one. Other than that, possibly add some crystal chips to the jar or seal it in black wax to absorb negativity. I would definitely add black salt to absorb negativity and banish energies that don’t serve you.

Personally, I like to bury words in black salt that I want to banish from my life. I made a spell jar for abundance, and I put words like “procrastination” and “laziness” under black salt, then put sea salt on top with words like “abundance” and “energy” so they’d be carried to the top. Maybe something similar to that?

- Willow

Remember I can order some but need advance notice to have them for you during a meet up.

14-20 dollars max but if she runs out then there won’t be more for a while because she makes them. 

Some eggs are toxic and  contain aluminum - we do not consider Aluminum as something to be concerned about in Yoni eggs because  the Aluminum that occurs is Gemstones that are natural is organic and bound- meaning it is not transferable to human tissue. One of the most used Yoni eggs- Jade - contains aluminum. 

Do NOT use:

Turquoise - toxic Copper

Calcite- Dissolves

Angelite- lead
Chrysocolla - toxic copper
Hematite - it rusts
Chalcopyrite- sulphur 
Galena- lead
Malachite- toxic copper
Selenite- it dissolves
Rhodochrosite - Lead
Pyrite- can convert to sulfuric acid
Orpiment- Arsenic**

Lapis Lazuli- may contain Pyrite (The jury is out on the toxicity of Lapis, however I’m mentioning it here out of caution)Lazurite- sulphur 


Is it supposed to be a yoni egg?
A lot of crystals are carved into the shape of an egg, but that doesn’t make it a yoni egg. These are intended for decorative purposes, or magical purposes or whatever. Some may be dyed or irradiated to enhance the color, and/or go through an acid bath to give it a polished sheen. These eggs are not intended as yoni eggs and should not be used as such.

One way to differentiate: if your egg is drilled, it is supposed to be used as a yoni egg. If you don’t know, ask.

Now, having said that, not all yoni eggs are drilled. I do like to start with this guideline, however, because it is a quick and easy way to differentiate the decorative items from the feminine self care tool.  

There are two schools of thought when it comes to using drilled eggs versus non drilled:  I used to be of the school of thought that said don’t use strings on your yoni eggs. This was because I liked the idea that a non-drilled, non-stringed egg would force you to rely on your body wisdom, for one, and trust that your body would expel your egg when it was ready. But after coaching women on these stones and working with them for a year and half, I’ve come to believe that neither method is wrong and that it depends on YOUR comfort level.  

Some women prefer to use drilled eggs simply because it gives them peace of mind knowing that when they are done with their exercises, they can simply pull the egg out and not have to worry about  “digging” for it to get it out.  The other school of thought is that using an undrilled egg helps women to deepen their intuition and actually go further in their journey to reconnect with their own body and deepening that trust of their body wisdom when it is done working the exercises. Like I said doesn’t doesn’t matter you can do it either way but I like to start with the “drilled egg” guideline because it is a simple way to know if your crystal is actually intended to be used as a yoni egg.


Remember don’t pay $50 or more because many will upcharge you no problem. 


Once you have your egg you can place it in some water with sea salt or add to that a blessing under the full moon. 


Also place it in a little baggie with some sage always cleanses :)

“Dear child, eating blackberries out of your hands, line up your dragons in front of you, sort them by shape, by height, by colour, tell me what makes them beautiful, what do you think beauty is?“


A Mother sits in the pantry drinking the sea out of a glass jar (she has a shelf of them, Mediterranean, Baltic, Arabian, she piles them on top of her oceans, her rivers, if you crouch by the door at night you can hear their waves, their currents, they taste like drowning); a child sits in a patch of clover pulling ghosts out of the ground by a thread of her favourite sweater, she will wrap them in blankets & find them a mug under the sink, the mug will have their names on them, they will drink tea with honey by the open fire, they will remember where they have been; a summer will go by in the blink of an eye, a fawn will be born, winter will come, mushrooms will take over the meadow-these are the things we can count on, streams and forest floors, waterfalls and cracks in the mountain.


If you go outside at night you can hear them, the wild flowers singing, the blackberries as they ripen, little faint things rustling in the branches. There will be thrushes forever, there will be rocks that orbit and crabs on the beach, “little ancient thing I can see you breathing, can you see me?”

“Dear child, eating blackberries from the palm of your hand, you are becoming light, can you feel it, line up your hopes in front of you, your wishes, sort them by how they feel, how many meadows they have walked in by your side, how many birds they fell from, what is it you want? What do you think beauty is?”


In the gardens, dreams are waking up; a mother sits amongst the curtains creating rabbits in her hands, they run free, pussy willow, chamomile, thistle, they find their place, they close their eyes; a child sits, catching fireflies “of all the things I have seen” she says “of all the things”; pools of minnows; bridges that build themselves out of the wind; candlesticks dripping carelessly; “of all the moons I have sat beside while they sleep”…


Somewhere an angel is waking up, somewhere the fountains are coming alive, somewhere the lilies are blooming-these are the things we can count on, warm breezes, bare feet, bees buzzing gently under the clouds, water rushing, a thick film of salt from the sea, caterpillars chewing on leaves…

ARIES: jump around to loud music, and be sweet on yourself. you remind me of growing up and staying young all together.  if you are looking for harmony, you will find it.

TAURUS: take a trip and venture out to someplace that reminds you of home. you will find yourself when you least expect it, and i wish i could be there to see. you are strong.

GEMINI: swimming pools and chocolate shakes, this is a time to relax. don’t hesitate to tell someone you love them.

CANCER: fireworks, sun, and sky, you’re everything i could ever want. do whatever it takes to take care of your heart, and be proud. you’ve made it this far kid.

LEO: i hope new cities treat you kindly, and that you find a different story each day. your skin smells like sweet adventure and coming home, and i miss it more than i thought i would. work hard but hold yourself gently as well. balance should be your calling.  

VIRGO: rocky mountains can lead to river valleys, so know that things will work out. don’t forget to breathe, and slow down a little. you’re destined for lovely things.

LIBRA: ease up a little and let your guard down, the world will still be there. trust is a tricky substance, but one taste is all you need. you have my grateful thanks.

SCORPIO: write on your skin in washable marker and trace the fine bird bone features of your body and remember, you are pure where it matters most. i wrote that line for you, and you have a part of me i lost somewhere in the sea. you will thrive under salt air and fresh ink.

SAGITTARIUS: creativity will spill like ink and stain everything so beautifully if you just let it. paint stains and hard work should pay off. i wish i had half the dedication you own.

CAPRICORN: go camping and do everything you think you won’t get time to do again. life is short, and summer’s shorter. enjoy all you can, starlight.

AQUARIUS: do something different and  make a list of all the ways you know how to breathe. grasp that change will not kill you. be honest, above all.  things can still be good. you are beautiful.

PISCES: write poetry and take car rides with the radio playing just a little bit too loud. you deserve every syllable you pour your heart into, and  your presence reminds me of comfort. it all means so much to me.
