  • Crystal Feature — Moonstone

    Crystal Feature — Moonstone

    The Divine Feminine Healer: Back in ancient days, Romans believed moonstone was a shard of pure moonlight. The way the crystal caught the light and seemed to glow like the moon itself caused both ancient Romans and Greeks to associate moonstone with the divine lunar goddesses. Just like the moon, moonstone crystal symbolizes light in […]

  • Crystal Feature — Green Aventurine

    Crystal Feature — Green Aventurine

    The Opportunity Stone: This past week was St Patrick’s Day, so it’s pretty fitting to talk about a crystal that can help bring us luck! Green aventurine can be your lucky charm and open your mind to new, prosperous opportunities. Green is my favourite colour, so this soft green crystal has a special place in […]

  • Familiars

    Familiars

    Our furry, scaley & feathery friends: If you’ve ever read the Sabrina comics, watched the TV series Sabrina the Teenage Witch, or its newest adaptation, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina — then you’ll be familiar with…familiars (haha). Salem the cat is an iconic representation of the witch’s familiar. In traditional witch lore, a familiar was […]

  • Glamour Magic

    Glamour Magic

    Aphrodite’s got nothing on you 🤍 I’ve always struggled with self-consciousness. I am very hyper-aware of myself in social situations (which is perhaps due to my neurodivergence). When I’m out in public, I feel my every movement — breath, blink, step — and wonder how other people perceive me. Am I weird? Do I look […]

  • Crystal Feature — Lepidolite

    Crystal Feature — Lepidolite

    The Gentle Healer: Lepidolite is a recent addition to my crystal collection and is becoming a new favourite. It’s a soothing stone and good for anxiety and depression. Discovered in the 1800s, lepidolite was originally named Lilalite because of its lilac colouring. This crystal can be found in purple, pink, magenta, and soft purple-grey shades. […]

  • Snow Magic

    Snow Magic

    Let’s Jump Into Some Winter Witchcraft I have a love/hate relationship with winter. If I had to rank it, winter would be my least favourite season. I’m a witch who loves her greens, so winter makes me a bit gloomy. Here in Winnipeg, our winters are brutally cold, the sky stays sad and grey for […]

  • Grimoires

    Grimoires

    How You Can Create a Book of Shadows If you’re just diving into witchcraft, you may have come across the terms “grimoire” or “book of shadows”. What are these mysterious and alluring titles? Simply put, they are spellbooks. In witch lore, a grimoire would hold all the recipes and secrets needed to recreate a witch’s […]

  • Witches Bells

    Witches Bells

    Time to Ring in the New Year 2022. This year is much more satisfying to look at than 2021. In numerology, the number “2” is a supremely feminine force. It’s associated with strong intuition and bringing balance to both situations and people. It also embodies coexistence and teamwork. In tarot, number “2” is aligned with […]

  • Crystal Feature – Amethyst

    Crystal Feature – Amethyst

    The Master Healer The first crystal I owned (well before becoming a witch) was amethyst. Amethyst is a type of quartz crystal. It’s popular among metaphysical enthusiasts because it is a master healer—and has a captivating violet hue reminiscent of dusk skies. The ancient Greeks believed amethyst could keep you from getting drunk. In Greek […]

  • Bath Magic

    Bath Magic

    Cleopatra and Marie Antoinette knew how to get the most from their baths. Bath magic is a gratifying combination of self-care and witchcraft. Magic aside, bathing is a great healing practice. Stepping into a tub filled with warm water is relaxing and rejuvenating. Warm baths help blood circulation, release tight muscles, and soothe aches and […]
