WITCHY ART CHALLENGE  ✨ 🌘🔮

Summer is coming and here is for you, all witch artist/writer of this world, a Challenge with only witchy stuff to draw or write about! You can do whatever you want with it, whenever you want!

Lots of love *:・゚✧

Always remember:

you are a witch. You are not controlled by the universe, but rather, you are in control of the universe. You are a child of the universe and as a witch you are as one with the universe. Your magick, your intent and your belief in that intent, is more powerful than anything in the cosmos. Goddesses and Gods don’t listen to you, aid you, and enter your circle to witness your rites because They’re bored; They come to you when you call Them because They know you hold an unmatched, unbridled power and are humbled and honored when you seek Them to help strengthen and empower your already Universe-altering magick. You are a healer among the wounded. You are a seeker among the lost. You are awake among the sleeping. You are a force to be reckoned with.

You are a witch.
