witch's foot

Please don't attack young witches!

So many of these young girls and boys are trying desperately hard to understand and use difficult concepts in their daily life. We have to encourage exploration! If they use a term incorrectly, politely correct them and explain what they may have been trying to use! We need to foster growth! I’ve seen too many witches and pagans alike jumping down the throats of young kids who are accidentally being “offensive”. Please remember what it was like when you first started. Remember trying to find your footing.

Hot Foot Powder aka Banishing Powder

-Ingredients-
*Black pepper
*Cayenne pepper
*Salt
*Sulfur (you can get sulfur tablets anywhere vitamins are sold. It can be used to treat diabetes, Alzheimer’s, chronic fatigue syndrome, tendonitis, and achne if you need an excuse to family )


-Instructions-
Grind ingredients together to form a powder. Sprinkle the powder on the targets door step if you want them to move, under their desk or where they stand at work to make them change jobs, or even in their shoes would have the same effect if that is easier to get to.

I cannot relate or converse with non radfem women anymore because no matter what kind of issue and problem I want to discuss, the second I point out it’s all caused, perpetuated, and done by men and for benefit of men, suddenly they look uncomfortable, they look away, they mumble “no” and then shake their heads and start their talk about “not all men”, they start lining up excuses, explanations, justifications, trying to cut blame into small pieces and disperse it all over society, it’s not just the men, it’s not all of them, women do something unrelated that is somehow equally bad and worth bringing into discussion, men were taught to act this way, eventually it all turns into one big chant “we must not blame men. we must not blame men” and I can talk about globe-wide issues, witch burnings, foot binding, female genital mutilation, slavery, taking human rights from women, marital abuse, pedophilia, rape, necrophilia, destruction of environment, murders, forced impregnation and forced birth, taking women’s last names and their identities, forcing their name onto women’s children, societal brainwashing and Stockholm syndrome, I always get the same feedback “We must not blame men.”

And I get it, I know what’s happening under their conscious thoughts, I know what’s going on in their heads when they look away. “ It would be really painful to believe men are like this after I’ve given them so much love and trust. I don’t want to believe that my male friends, partners, father, brothers, are all like this. They aren’t. This has to have another explanation. If men are truly like this I won’t be able to feel safe anymore. I want to feel safe. If I start believing this then how will I get to work tomorrow, how will I get to class, how will I go home? I can’t survive without men. Calling them out is dangerous. If I were to say something like this to them, they wouldn’t take it well, they would attack me and deny it. I know exact words they would use, I’ll say them all now. I really want this to not be true. If I can explain it away, it might go away. I want to believe they’re good. I want to keep hoping. I can still survive like this. It’s survivable. I want to live in a world where they’re not like that, and maybe if I believe it strongly enough, it will happen. I can remember men doing some good things too, I’ll hang onto those memories. Maybe they’ll change if we give them enough kindness and love.”

And we were all there. We all started from this. And it was a hard step to let go of it. It was a hard step to acknowledge that there’s so many women who won’t survive under tyranny of men. There’s such a large number of women who are tortured every day. Every single woman is taking damage under the male controlled system, and even if some can survive it, for most it’s only matter of time before they’re assaulted, tortured, raped, denied resources, backed into corner, forced to give up their integrity, their resources, their justice, their safety, their life. We already are forced to look at atrocities they do to our sisters, mothers, to our children, and then we have to look away, we have to let it keep happening. I wouldn’t ask women to face harsh realities if I had not believed it’s truly and honestly in their best interests. You can defend men all your life, and still your life might end with man’s hands around your neck, as he tells you that you asked for it. Believing in their good nature won’t save you from men. They already kill women who believe in them, and they kill them slowly, punish them for their trust and empathy, use their compassion against them, use women’s survival instincts to get more and more and more from them.

Getting away from men, or disabling them from harming any woman on this planet is the only thing that has any chance of protecting you. You are worthy of more than men have convinced you. You are life itself and they’re trying to hide it from you. You are a source of life and it’s in their nature to destroy you. You deserve a better life than what men have given you. 

Hot Foot Powder

Hot Foot Powder is used whenever you wish to make someone leave you or make it so that they never stay in one place too long. I’ve heard of people using it and having it so that the person is constantly moving for the rest of their life. It is very simple to make and most of the ingredients you have in your home, or can be substituted for things in your home


Hot Foot Powder Recipe:
Cayenne Pepper
Black Pepper
Black Mustard Seed
Sulfur
High John the Conqueror Root
Gun Powder 

Make into a fine powder and keep in an air tight container until use. Due to the nature of some of the ingredients, I advise caution when using to keep away from sensitive parts of your body, make sure you are not allergic to the sulfur, and please wash your hands with soap and water afterwards.

The only ingredients on that list I believe are mandatory would be the Cayenne, the black pepper, and the sulfur(which can still be substituted, I’ve just found it’s not as potent in my practice). Anything else can be substituted. I also use Chili Powder in mine along with other things I think would be necessary for the intended purpose of that particular batch of Hot Foot Powder, such as trusty black salt made with ashes from banishing herbs, iron dust, graveyard dirt, and other things.

Whether you pour it on their tracks, put some in their shoes, sprinkle on their doorstep, put a picture of them in a jar of it, mix it with war water for an especially nasty batch of that, or any other use for it, this stuff is amazing and potent. Got a horrible roommate? Sprinkle some behind them while they’re leaving the house, then once they’re gone, sweep all of the room out into the main room and then out the door, successfully ridding the home of them and you can now start searching for a new roommate, or refurbish that room into the spiritual room you’ve always wanted.

Stormed Off

The witch, annoyed, stamped her foot and stormed off.

Quite literally.

From her heel, plumes of silver and black smoke coiled to form a small platform. A haunted wind picked her up and flew her away, leaving her date to stare in silent confusion.

Witch tip: foot baths!

Seriously, if you don’t have access to a bathtub (like in a dorm), have issues with sensitivity, or just want your product to last longer, try soaking your feet in your bath salts of choice. Envision the negative energy flowing out through the bottoms of your feet and being washed down the drain when you dump the water. You’ll use less of it than if you had a full bath, and you can get a decent sized tub at the dollar store for cheap. Plus, if you work on your feet all day, it’s a great way to relax. You could also finish it up with a nice foot scrub and some nail polish to match your intent, if you’re into that. ✨

Magickal Herbs: How to... "baths"

Herbal Baths: Whether it is a bath, sitz bath (hip bath), foot bath or finger bath, the herbs (or herbal infusion) in all cases highly diluted with hot water.


Bathing work naturally externally but volatile substances released can thereby be also partly inhaled (mainly etherical oils).

Best way if you don’t want to deal with herb residue in bathtub, is to make a decoction and add it to the bathwater. Or use a tea egg. You can also wrap herbs in cloth. 

The principle is based on a combination of herbs and heat. Heating of your body or part of it makes you relaxed and calm. Heat also accelerates healing of muscles and relieves rheumatic pain.

The usual herbs used for baths are: 

  • Chamomile 
    This herb soothes nerves and bid relief from stress. Very good for babies and for the moms as well, for a good night rest. 

  • Basil
    The spicy scent is energizing and a very good one for start of the day or a busy night.

  • Eucalyptus
    This herb is best added as oil to the bath. This helps with a painful throat, stuffy nose and lack of energy.

  • Lavender
    The most known herb for bath, soothing and relaxing. I love to use this one in combination with rosemary.

  • Lemon (as oil) and lemon balm
    Refreshing scent and energizing, helping with sore skin and muscles.

  • Rosemary
    Helps with aching and sore muscles. Works wonders when your throat hurt and your nose is stuffed. 

  • Sage
    This amazing and universal herb has a stimulating effect when used in bath. Not everyone might like it’s scent though, so use small amounts of it in baths.

  • Calendula flowers 
    These are soothing for dry skin and help with eczema and healing wounds and to soothe mosquito bites. Very useful for small children baths. 

  • Marjoram
    Also known as wild oregano, is a decongestant (helps with stuffy nose) and is invigorating. It aids with muscle pain and strains.

This is when you will find me,
in my witching hour…

I am currently midway in the process of drying out chicken feet. Without a food dehydrator it is a very long process using salt and one of the lowest heat settings on your oven. Chicken foot charms are used by many practitioners of different metaphysical systems of witchcraft. However, the practice originally comes from Voodoo and Hoodoo. Chicken foot charms are used for protection and to “scratch out” negativity. These are also used for enemy workings to “scratch at” or “scratch” your enemy. Usually you would paint up and decorate your chickens foot charms, but I am familiar with practitioners using the dried chickens foot as is. Your chickens feet would go through a process of consecration, blessing, and charging prior to use. You may hang these charms in your home, car (to protect from theft), and even incorporate into jewelry and with mojo bags.

Thackery Binx x Reader

Second Chance

Prompt(s): “Thackery Binx and a girl from his town before he was turned into a cat secretly meet up as friends then eventually fall for each other. Her father is also head of the towns church.” And “Can you do a oneshot for Thackery binx where the reader is max and Danis older sister and she’s there throughout the whole dealing with the witches thing and Thackery starts to fall in love the second he sees the reader and the reader starts to fall for Thackery as well since he’s always near her protecting her and in the end he’s given the chance to stay or go to heaven and his sister tells him to stay with the reader”

Note: I have literally been in love with Thackery Binx forever. Like, FOREVER. So, obviously, I got carried away and wrote a huge long fic. Enjoy!

Warnings: hella fluff <3

Word Count: 2352

You were certain that Thackery Binx was the most handsome boy in the colony, or perhaps to have ever lived. He had left you as smitten as a kitten with a racing heart and flushed cheeks every time you thought about your sweetheart.

When you stepped out of the tiny shack you called home, a note had been nailed to the end of the post.

“My Love,

Meet me behind the church at dusk.

I have something I have waited long to give to you.

Sincerest Wishes,

-Thackery”

You folded the note and tucked it into the belt of your apron, a grin spreading across your now-rosy cheeks at the thought of meeting your secret lover under the setting sun. The day passed so slow, each moment inching by at the pace of a snail. As soon as the sun began to approach the horizon, you made your way behind the church.
