All That Ego…

I’ve had a couple of interesting interactions, one of which was only this morning on Facebook. There are a small handful of reasons I will interject my opinion on a Facebook post in witchcraft groups; There’s misinformation. The practice is unsafe (particularly around baneful ingredients).

Culture and Appropriation

I hot topic I was hoping I didn’t have to cover. Unfortunately, cultural appropriation always feels like the elephant in the room. The first thing I want to address is that I’m not telling anyone what they should or shouldn’t do within their practice. The second is that only you can determine your entitlement toContinue reading “Culture and Appropriation”

My Library, My Resources

I want to talk about where we get our information, specifically where I get my information. I have a bookcase that is exclusively for my occult and spiritual books. There are over 40 books and well over 5 tarot and oracle decks. It’s always growing. Some books I haven’t bought because I feel like I’mContinue reading “My Library, My Resources”
