A Spooky Happening

The year is 2020. A green mist of Coronavirus has descended over the skyscrapers of Manchester, and I am BORED. Where do I go to read about cool things? And possibly have to trawl through pages and pages of people claiming to be Satan himself? Why, /x/, of course.

For those of you who haven’t heard of /x/, this is a 4chan board where people (mostly) discuss the paranormal. Some posts on /x/ are ridiculous, but every so often you come across a real gem – I even wrote an article about one of them! So, /x/ draws me back in time and time again, just out of hope that I’ll read something as interesting as that.

Anyway – back to the story. I was happily browsing /x/ one day when I came across a post. The text of the post wasn’t compelling, something about demons etc etc, but I was drawn to the image posted. The image in question was this:

You IRL : YouIRL

I felt some sense of anxiety looking at this image. It reminded me of when Lovecraft refers to something as ‘a picture which drives one insane’. I’d never seen anything which inspired so much dread and a gut-wrenching feeling that something was wrong. I was convinced that I’d never come across this image again, so I saved it onto my phone.

A few days passed, and I couldn’t shake that compulsion to keep looking at it. Part of its weirdness was that I didn’t know where it was from, and the art style was just….uncomfortable. In an attempt to make myself feel better, I reverse Google image searched it, and easily found it.

It was a book cover: a book called Chamiel by Edward Pearson. But that didn’t fully satisfy me. I had to see what it was about, as I’ve learned to pay attention to this weird gut feelings, so I headed to Amazon (boo! hiss!) to see if I could buy it. Yes! I could buy it! It was even on sale.

It was reduced to £0.01. This felt wrong, I thought, as I added it to my basket. Wasn’t it a coincidence that I had such strange feelings about a book that just happened to be on sale for one pence at the exact same time? I knew the universe wanted me to buy it. So, in true reckless Frankie Synth fashion, I bought it. I felt like there must be something in it that I needed to read.

It came, and I opened it. The dedication page just said ‘dear John.’ That was it. Just that on an empty page. I already had the feeling that this book was cursed somehow, but I couldn’t explain it, it was a gut feeling. The first rule of cursed objects is to cleanse cursed objects (we’ve all seen Annabelle, I aint having chairs flying around my house).

After cleansing the book and the house, I sat down to read. The book was an adventure novel about archangels, but what stood out to me was the ending (I’ll try to keep it spoiler free): the ending of this book provides a new perspective on the canonical Adam and Eve story, and after reading it, it prompted me to look at my own roots with new perspectives.

Had I not looked at my own roots, I wouldn’t have made some difficult decisions and expelled negativity from my life. That is what this book was trying to tell me. So, thanks good guy universe!

However, that picture still remains a mystery as to why it disturbs me so much. It may be symbolic of my reluctance to do shadow work: the picturesque, dreamlike landscape contrasting with the harsh oppressive shadow is pretty evident. Because I’m apparently a masochist, I may even print it out and display it on my desk to remind me to do shadow work!

What do you think? Does this image disturb you the same way it disturbs me? Do you have any images that have spoken to you?

How I raise enough energy for spellwork in less than ten minutes

One way of raising energy is achieving some kind of meditative state, How do we do this? Some people use shamanic drumming, others use sitting perfectly still on top of Helvellyn (trust me, it’s cold up there).

Explore Mountains in Keswick, the Lake District - Helvellyn
Yeah, no thanks. (Source)

I use dance and music.

Not just any kind of music, but music that my brain reacts to. There are studies that show certain types of music causing the brain to go into a trance like state, and you can find hours of ‘trance’ music on YouTube just by searching for it:

But here’s the thing: I don’t use either of those.

My top two energy raising genres are folk music, or actual trance electronic music. Folk, as I was brought up on it, creates a feeling of home and high spirits in my brain, and trance…well, I think I just have a natural affinity for getting ‘lost’ in it.

Here are my favourite songs for energy raising. Give them a try and see if any of them work for you!

The way I raise energy is by dancing to this music and feeling the energy from it coursing through me: I am a vessel for the earth’s energy.

Jig of Life: Kate Bush

This is great for me as it taps into the shamanistic drumming, whilst also having a folk dance segment at the end. The words ‘and you will dance with me in the sunlit pools’ are some of my favourite lyrics of all time too. It was really important when I first started and I used this song all the time! Love you Kate ❤

Free Tibet – Vini Vici Remix – Vini Vici

Complete polar opposite, but allowing yourself to sink into this music really works for me.

All Tomorrow’s Parties – The Velvet Underground

You know there’s just those songs where they make you feel like a witch? Well, this one really does. If you recognise it and you’re a big goth like me, you might know it from the end of the Rob Zombie film ‘Lords of Salem’. I’m not going to put The Velvet Underground on this list twice but they also did this song which works really well, too.

Fee Ra Huri – Omnia

Here we are in the pagan aesthetic folk dance genre and I love it. I like to use this one whilst cooking or kneading bread.

Bliss on Mushrooms – Infected Mushroom & Bliss

What can I say? Makes you feel up in the clouds and dancing to this is just….ahhh.

Opening Titles – The Sorcerers

This band was introduced to me by a fellow Witch At Work (WAW) and they’re so nice to just spin slowly to. This whole album is great for it but this is my favourite track.

Hopefully these have given you an idea of what trance-state through music feels like, and how achieving a trance energy is easier than you think!

Sigil Magick: A Theory

When I first started using sigils, my little skeptical pea-brain was convinced they wouldn’t work. I didn’t think ‘charging’ them would do anything, and I certainly didn’t think that burning them would achieve anything but cinders and an asthma attack. And you know what? None of my sigils worked. At the time, this reinforced to me that they were a waste of time, but then I started reading into it. Millions of witches couldn’t be wrong, could they?

Months passed, and I thought….yeah, I’m going to try and identify why mine don’t work. I went through the steps of what I used to do, and if you like, you can use this as a guide for what NOT to do.

  1. Go on Google Images and search for ‘protection sigil’
  2. Pick a random one without checking that they have been done with either the grid method or the Witches Wheel
  3. Draw it somewhere
  4. ???
  5. Profit

I’m going to illustrate why the first and second steps are wrong: people draw sigils for all kinds of reasons, and with their own personal methods. For example, I had a shamanic experience and drew my own sigil for ‘healing’ in my trance state. Will that sigil work for everyone? No, because that trance state was personal to me.

If you don’t want to draw your own sigils, feel free to use mine on my sigils page. These have been drawn using the grid method, and so are about as impersonal as you can get, leaving you to imprint your own energies and magick as you use them.

So, why do they work? Here’s one theory that I found particularly interesting:

I was browsing the 4chan /x/ board – which is normally just full of apocalyptic nonsense but occasionally will have the most interesting gems – and came across a post, which I will paraphrase and condense here. I think this is the most accurate explanation to me of how sigils work.

Symbols have no inherent meaning without what is programmed into them. However, the projected programming causes the symbol to carry energy…and meaning projected onto it, if we are open to receiving the already established energy. So too, at all times, are we projecting energy and programming our environment around us…[things] will carry energy.

Anonymous, 2020

Take, for example, the Christian crucifix. For some people, this symbol instils a feeling in them, whether that be through associations, or literally because of the energy they themselves have projected onto that symbol. There’s even a condition called ‘Jerusalem Syndrome’ which you can watch a video on here, where people become overwhelmed and start quoting Bible verses in the street (NB: while this video is good, it is quite skeptical, but the information is there!).

My point is here, that this extends to sigils. If I create a sigil in a trance state, my energy is being channelled into that sigil, and therefore the sigil will retain that energy. If you take an impersonal base sigil, and channel energy into it, that energy will be retained.

Do you have a theory as to why sigils work? Post a comment and let me know!

Mabon is coming: A collection of preparations

As I sit here in my little terraced house in Britain writing this, I can see the cloudy grey sky out of my window and I feel the summer ending. I can feel the leaves turning crunchy and everyone’s back to school photos, and with a little twinge of excitement, I can sense the pumpkin spice lattes waking and stretching their little caffeinated arms. Without a doubt, this is the end of summer.  

Which means that Mabon is coming, and it means that it’s been a whole year (!) since I started fully practising on Pagan holidays. Over the year, I’ve been refining my skills, bought far too many books and qualified in various different aspects of witchcraft and Pagan culture. 

Anyway, with Mabon coming up, I’ve put together a couple of things that you can do if you’re struggling for ideas – especially if you’re in self isolation or local lockdown (like I am, sigh).  

It wouldn’t be a Frank post if there wasn’t some reference to food, and so I’ll start with a bit of kitchen witchery. I got this recipe from The Almanac by Lia Leendertz – an absolute must have for anyone wanting to connect more to the earth and its ways. This recipe was tweaked from another book called Cattern Cakes and Lace. As with any of my kitchen witchcraft posts, you can add or remove spices from this as you see fit, and use spices that you feel are connected to Mabon! I would use woody spices, like nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves.  

Suffolk Fourses Cakes (Mabon Spice Bread) 

675g strong white flour 

1 ½ teaspoons of instant dried yeast 

½ tsp salt 

2 teaspoons mixed ground spice (or mixed Mabon spices) 

2 teaspoons sugar 

175g softened butter 

450ml warm water 

175g currants (optional) 

Sift all the dry ingredients into a large bowl, then add the butter and rub in until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the water and mix until it becomes a dough, then tip it out on a floured surface and knead it for 10 minutes. Put it in another bowl, cover with a teatowel and leave it somewhere warm to rise for 1 to 2 hours (until it’s doubled in size).  

Tip it out and knead in the currants (if using), then divide it into two pieces. Shape them into two loaves and put each in a loaf tin. Leave them to double in size again. 

Preheat the oven to 200C, and when the loaves have risen enough, brush them with milk (to make them shiny) and bake them for 45 minutes. Leave them to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then cool them on a wire rack.  

Enjoy as part of your Mabon feast or leave as an offering! 

Easy Mabon spell bags 

I love spell bags. They’re easy to make, and my home is full of them! A neat trick with certain spell bags (ones containing cloves or other whole spices) is to put a bit of water in the top of a wax burner, and ‘boil’ the bags with the tealight underneath. You can take them out, dry them and then use them again and again! You can make them out of cheesecloth and twine: just put the spices/flowers in your cheesecloth, wrap them up like a parcel with twine and make a little string to dangle them if you want to! I have protective ones in my front window which I hang off the window handles.  

NB: if you do this, be careful of the bag dripping when you take it out! My carpet is a bit stained from the clove syrup dripping off the bag 🙁   

As I mentioned in the recipe, I associate Mabon with falling leaves and woody earthy smells/atmospheres, so for my spell bags, I put in whole cloves, two cinnamon sticks and a ‘stone’ (unsure of the word!) of nutmeg. Hang them around, or use the wax/oil burner trick to make your home smell like Autumn.  

Summon a demon 

Joking! Joking! Please don’t do this – we have enough issues in the world already. 

Thank Mother Earth for the circle of the seasons 

Feel free to ignore this one if you don’t believe in prayer, as I will probably post some poetry at some point. I am by no means more qualified to lead a ritual than anyone else, but I have edited this ritual prayer so the solitary practitioner can read and sit in contemplation, or read to a group of practitioners. This prayer is from Seasonal Occult Rituals by William Gray, and this section is The Rite of Autumn.  

May the light of sunset shine resplendently on us this Autumn equinox. 

Blessed be the sun of Autumn bringing heavenly beauty to the edges of this earth.  

Blessed be light so wonderfully shown to us upon its path of power. 

We stand between the light and shade 

Upon the middle path we made 

Where day and night divide, 

As we have lived and worked and prayed.  

Fire and water bring to birth 

With air, the outcome of this earth.  

So bless the earth on which we stand 

For harvests of the sea and land. 

Roots below, fruits above, ripe and ready for our reaping. Blessed be the earth suppoorting life, and air that brings the breath of life to earth. Let us keep our feet well grounded on our earth however high we hold our heads to the sky. So shall we live as upright souls between both ends of our existence.   

Make a Cerridwen brew 

By artist Adrienne Rozzi

Cerridwen is the Welsh goddess of transformation, so you could probably brew this at any changing of the seasons. This recipe is toxic and so should not be consumed. Instead, you can sit and absorb the vapours as it boils.  

This recipe is from The Complete Book of Incense, Oils & Brews by Scott Cunningham.  


  • Water 
  • Acorns 
  • Barley 
  • Honey 
  • Ivy 
  • Hellebore (you can substitute this with rosemary) 
  • Bay 

I hope you enjoyed this post, and if you would like me to write one for each corner of the year (ie. Yule, Ostara, Litha and Mabon 2021), please like, share and comment! 

Philosophy, Occultism and Witchcraft Rabbit holes: Because Reading is Fun-damental!

[NB: Two things: firstly, sorry for the delay in posting, my mental health hasn’t been great and apologies if my writing isn’t up to scratch with the rest of my posts; secondly, I’ll probably update this post if I find new and relevant information to add!]

I did an interview on Monday for The Brit Witch’s blog, and I was asked why I started my blog. My answer: to help people feel a little bit less overwhelmed.

I made a previous post for beginner witches, but I thought I’d just expand bit on a piece of advice which is probably the most important.

What do YOU believe?

I can never get over how many people I meet that blindly follow without figuring out what they believe in, and its unsurprising that a fair few of these fledgling witches lose interest and end up stopping practising.

By far the most helpful thing for me was actually figuring out what I believe, and by doing this, helped me develop my own craft and spiritual practice, as well as strengthening my faith (because if you’re sceptical about something at first, forcing yourself to believe can have a negative effect on the rest of your learning).

Here are links to interesting information as to why magic works, the reality we live in and even some theories as to the meaning of life. Also: some of these may just be INTERESTING AF, with no relation to spellcraft, but obviously read these at your discretion.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own any of these theories, and also please be careful of trying any of these practices at home – ALWAYS make sure to cleanse and protect.

The Law Of One

The Ra Contact: Teaching the Law of One: Volume 1: Amazon.co.uk ...

“I am Ra. The Law of One, though beyond the limitations of name, as you call vibratory sound complexes, may be approximated by stating that all things are one, that there is no polarity, no right or wrong, no disharmony, but only identity. All is one, and that one is love/light, light/love, the Infinite Creator.

The Law of One messages were channelled by a group of mediums in the 1980s, and these messages supposedly came from a non-human entity called Ra. Here is a link to their website, which includes questions and answers, however in my experience it’s a bit heavy to read – 106 sessions? No way bozo.

The Law of One suggests that there is a Divine Creator, but that Creator is us. My haphazard paraphrasing (which could be nightmarishly wrong but I’m trying my god-damn best) is that we are on a journey to find our path back to the Divine, and these paths can either be service to ourselves or service to others. If we don’t choose either of these paths and find our way back, then we reincarnate until we do.

For people like me (who need TLDRs), here is the synopsis.

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini yoga - Wikipedia

This theory implies that in order to harness our true potential, Kundalini yoga is the answer.

Why a snake? The power of this yoga comes from the Kundalini (Sanskrit for “coiled serpent”), an enormous reserve of untapped potential within each of us, located around the sacrum or “sacred bone” at the base of the spine.


You can do a course in it for free, by visiting their website here, or just read up on it by reading the Wiki (yeah, cheating, I know). Interstingly, there was a Netflix documentary about a cult that was based around this practice, but I feel that that’s a really closed-minded way of looking at it. Russell Brand says it’s good, and he doesn’t (really) seem like a cult leader to me, so give it a try! (FYI if Russell Brand did lead a cult I’d be first in line. Love you RB x).

Alternatively, there are several Kundalini videos on Youtube – for example, this one.

I find this interesting as so many people have their own theories as to what Kundalini is (a magical practice or just meditation?)- it’s a rabbit hole worth going down, for sure.

The Language of Arithmetic

BBC Radio 3 - Sunday Feature, Harmony of the Spheres

Remember when you were in Year 8 and learning about equations and thinking ‘when am I gonna need this’? Well, according to several famous thinkers, the answer is ALL THE TIME.

These philosophers and mathematicians speculated that maths was the language of God, and that the universe was created through a series of equations.

See here for ya boi Pythagoras (remember him from GCSE Maths? I do). He is a theorist of Numerology which is another wonderful labyrinth of info. Here’s a YouTube video, too.

He had this theory about music, which I love:

Pythagoras pioneered the mathematical and experimental study of music. He objectively measured physical quantities, such as the length of a string, and discovered quantitative mathematical relationships of music through arithmetic ratios. Pythagoras attempted to explain subjective psychological and aesthetic feelings, such as the enjoyment of musical harmony.


TDLR: Universe corresponds with numbers which correspond with everything else: music, biology, sacred geometry, Fibronacci sequence, etc.

Also, the Harmony of the Spheres is a really interesting offshoot of this.

In conflict, here is what Aristotle had to say on the matter.

To go further with the reality is numbers theory, think of binary code and how technology is made up of numbers – isn’t it weird to think that we could be living in a simulated reality made up of numbers? Or a ‘real’ reality that’s also just made up of numbers?

The Fibronacci Sequence

This is a short one, and relates to the last point, but the Fibronacci sequence is too interesting not to share.

Here is the Fibronacci sequence:

Recognise it? It’s probably because a lot of things grow according to this sequence.

The Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction you’ve probably already heard of: wish for something hard enough and that thing will manifest. This in my mind corresponds to witchcraft as a lot of that is about intention, so here we go:

What is The Law of Attraction?

The Law of Attraction examples

Law of Attraction official website

My only issue with their website is that it reminds me of that episode of The IT Crowd where one of the characters wishes for a helicopter and he got one- it’s the spacey header! (and the fact that the episode was sort of about this). Basically, don’t go too far-fetched and this will most likely benefit you.

Ancient religions and Pantheons

Here are some wikis for different cultures: you may find that you have been a polytheist for some time and have never thought about it! Definitely worth reading and seeing if there are any deities that you specifically connect to.

Greek deities

Roman deities

Celtic deities

Egyptian deities

Norse deities

Also worth reading about:


Nature worship


Animism encompasses the beliefs that all material phenomena have agency, that there exists no hard and fast distinction between the spiritual and physical (or material) world and that soul or spirit or sentience exists not only in humans, but also in other animals, plants, rocks, geographic features such as mountains or rivers or other entities of the natural environment: water spritesvegetation deitiestree sprites, … . Animism may further attribute a life force to abstract concepts such as words, true names or metaphors in mythology.


Basically what that quote said^. Everything has its own sentience.

Since ancient times, humans have attached sentience to nature spirits, and even inanimate objects like swords and ships. A modern example of this is when I have to put my stuffed animal into the wardrobe when we have visitors and I feel so sorry for him in there, even though deep down I know that he is just cloth and filling (I am 26 years old). It is interesting to see how many others have these feelings, so animism could be a valid philosophy, even if objects are inanimate, they may have some form of sentience.

Examples of animism

The Law of Vibration

I realise that this blog post has taken a more sciencey route – but don’t magic and science go hand in hand anyway?

My last reading topic for y’all today is the Law of Vibration.

Everything in life is a vibration

Albert Einstein

The universe has vibrations, we have vibrations, and so does everything else.

“We are the same as plants, as trees, as other people, as the rain that falls. We consist of that which is around us, we are the same as everything.”

Gautama Buddha

The Law of Vibrations states that nothing is ever resting and is constantly vibrating – some people have even speculated that our words and actions vibrate.

It is theorised that everything in the universe is made up of pure light and energy. If we look at an object, it is made up of smaller objects, and so on, and so on.

An interesting article about the use of vibration in crystal healing

A creepy theory and valid point of view on this is that we can only perceive what we can perceive: there could be things in the world that have energy vibrations low enough that we simply don’t know they exist.

Some of my thoughts on these theories

Even though nobody asked

When I was researching the Law of Attraction and Vibration, there seemed to be a lot centred around ‘getting what you want’. I personally don’t think this is the right attitude and definitely not the right attitude to be practising in your craft.

Having said that, I do think that all of these theories are worth keeping in mind: I find that numerology is extremely handy for tarot work and sigil making, and that vibrations are really important for energy work and crystal healing.

What out of these Do you believe in? Do you think that there is an omnipresent, one deity? Or multiple? Or that we are god?

5 little witchy things that you can do anywhere

We’ve all been here: you want to do some big elaborate rituals, you want to manifest great things, but do you have time?

Absolutely not.

Disclaimer: I have been way busy and not doing this most of the time

With work, housework, errands, other things going on in life, it’s easy to think that you don’t have time for witchcraft – I was exactly the same before I started knowingly practising. It seems to be big elaborate rituals with fire and robes and chanting, right? Well, it was to me in the beginning (as an outsider looking in).

Here’s some quick and easy ways to practise your spellcraft anywhere!

1. Enchant your morning brew

Everyone has some kind of drink in the morning, right? For me it’s usually coffee, but this spell can be used on pretty much anything: tea, coffee, cordial, gin and tonic, vodka martini…..

Here’s how easy it is: make your brew as normal, and then when you stir it, stir it clockwise, and visualise the things you want to manifest being drawn to you by the direction of the drink. I normally sprinkle a bit of cinnamon into my coffee to accentuate the spell, but it’ll work regardless!

2. Charged crystals in your pocket

The great thing about teeny crystals or jewellery is that they’re super-portable. Try meditating on a crystal in the morning and imbue it with what you’d like to manifest, then you can keep it in your pocket and draw out that energy when you need it. I’d recommend clear or rose quartz for this, because they’re great at soaking up energy, but sometimes I’ll use my lovely teal fluorite. Why? Because it feels right.

3. Draw sigils on yourself/something you own

This sort of relates to my next point, but its a good’un. Refer to my Making Sigils page for guidance on coming up with a sigil, or use one of my pre-made ones. Then you can draw this wherever you like to manifest your goals. For example, if there is something I want to manifest that week, I will draw the sigil for it in the notes page of my diary, so then everything I write in there will be enchanted to help me. Another time, I had to deliver a presentation at work, so I drew a small sigil on my thumb.

Where you put them is up to you, but this is a super easy way to manifest!

4. Use your daily routine as a ritual

When people refer to a morning ritual, they tend to mean your normal routine: ie. showering, putting makeup on, brushing your teeth. So why can’t this be an actual ritual?

When you shower, use the feeling of the water to manifest your purification- the banishing of yesterday’s energy to welcome in the new day.

When you put makeup on, draw a little sigil in foundation on your cheek before you blend it.

When you butter your toast, draw a sigil on it with butter or jam (or whatever you prefer).

A ‘morning ritual’ doesn’t have to be an Insta-perfect yoga routine – it can just be sitting quietly with your enchanted toast.

5. Just sit with a candle for five minutes

How simple is this? Light a candle, and sit looking at the flame. This really helps you connect with the elements and also lets you practice quick meditation, so it’s a win win!

Morticia? Elphaba? 10 examples that will change your views of the ‘witch’

Today I’m going to talk about something that is really important to me, and probably countless other witchcraft practitioners: aesthetics. 

I have no shame in admitting that I am a Millenial™ and was brought up between the 90s scrunchie-wearing-size 0 culture and the selfie culture we live in today. Even though I’m an adult, I think we are all affected by what we see in the media.  

So, what’s my point here? 

Look at these popular modern depictions of witches: 

Morticia Addams, The Addams Family, 1991
Misty Day, American Horror Story, 2013
Marie Laveau, American Horror Story, 2013
Model: Dayana Crunk

With this surge in popularity of young women (and men) turning to witchcraft, it’s easy to see why many witches feel pressured to look or commit to a certain aesthetic and interests that ‘correspond’ with these aesthetics: Morticia, Misty (or Stevie, whichever floats your boat), Marie Laveau hoodoo queen, or Dayana Killstar nu goth witch.

I’m not saying that any of these aesthetics aren’t valid (I personally love all of them and model myself after two of them).

But if you don’t look like this, are you qualified to call yourself a witch? Are you qualified if you just practise a little bit in your spare time, or do we all have to be hunched over grimoires in candlelight in our Instagram-perfect gothic houses?

Of course you are qualified. 

The aesthetic and interests you have, and who you are, do not have an impact on your value as a witch.  

Witchcraft can be as much a part of your life as you want it to be.

To illustrate this, I’ve collected together some folks, all of whom are different, and all of whom are extremely valid witches. I have also included their Instagram handles if I know them! Do you see yourself in any of these people? If so- great! If not- great! I rest my case and hand you over to…

1. Way_of_the_witch

‘I am an eclectic witch and for the past seven years I have been working on my craft.

I am not a multigenerational witch. I am the first in my family to work in witchcraft, and over the years I’ve been able to gather witches from all over my area and of all different paths and bring us together. I am a hot mess with my three rescue cats and roommate (who is also a witch).

My interest is mostly in the work itself, connecting different items and elements to alter the flow of energies and bend it to what I ask. Being eclectic I work a lot with different mediums. Finding a home in Tarot, candle work, and spell creation.’

2. Skye

‘I’m Skye, from the UK. I have been a practising pagan witch for just short of a decade. My interests pertain to the ocean, nature, art, poetry and music. I consider myself a sea witch and I work with the oceanic realm. The sea has always captured my heart, and soul. And it has always been a place of solace and strength for me. Being a witch to me, means being your authentic self, living your truth and standing in your power. After all, the greatest magic takes place within ourselves.’ 

3. xdumpsterxkandix1992

‘My aesthetic *nowadays* is what I would call “evil school girl” or a mix of 70s punk, 80s goth, and just a huge 90S/Y2K mess! It really depends on my mood, but lately its leaning more towards my goth look in middle and high school. I definitely believe self-expression is a HUGE part of witchcraft and just me in general. Whatever I’m feeling I need help with that day is what I express throughout the day and in my practice, as I tailor it to my needs and make it as specific as possible. My interests outside of it are dancing (modern, bellydancing and hoopdancing), theater/costuming, sewing, art, poetry, music (both listening to and playing), nature, natural medicine, essential oils and herbs, astrology (which all play a part in my craft) cooking/baking, so many things.’

4. Oldsoulnewlife

‘I was raised Wiccan, but dabbled and studied one or two other religions before studying paganism as a whole. I discovered my ancestors were Viking and Celtic and decided to try the more ancient path, while merging it with a little new age belief. So I’m classified under a heathen pagan witch but I just do magick when I’m called. Magick is a big part of my daily routine and helps with manic depression, ptsd and fibromyalgia. I incorporate it into everything from my coffee to my shower to setting an intention on my work break. Witchcraft and magick saved me, my health and my life.’ 

5. Jorge (@thescribian)

‘Witchcraft found me before I even knew what it was. It’s not what defines me, but it plays such a beautiful role in almost everything that I do. I love to entertain people with writing and acting – I’ll work with candles to infuse creativity and passion into those things. I love helping people through my career in education – I’ll invent rituals for good fortune, or even clear communication! And when I’m not chasing the forty million ambitions I can muster in a moment, I like to take some time to study witchcraft and connect with other practitioners, which reminds me I’m a part of something so much greater than myself.’

‘I’m in school for social work but my ideal goal is to be a psychedelic therapist so I can merge the spiritual and apply therapeutic techniques. I’m interested in astrology (still learning!) but that was a huge explanation for how I naturally went about my craft. I use fire, incantations and draw sigils! Drawing itself is an act of meditation and manifesting for me.’

7. Kit (chronic.enby)

‘Hi I’m Kit, I’m 28 and I’m nonbinary. I started practicing witchcraft at about 8 years old when I found out I had witch/pagan ancestors. I work a lot with candle magick since fire has always called to me. I’m also an artist! I like to incorporate my art into candle making/carving: it makes my practice more personal.’

8. Seren

‘My witch-name is Seren, I’m Welsh, and I’m a kitchen witch, 27. 

I primarily do kitchen witchcraft and hearth witchcraft, which means I work primarily with food – something I’m very happy about! – and I consider myself secular, despite also being a Hellenic polytheist – I don’t believe that my deities are inherently linked to my witchcraft. I do a lot of baking and cooking, which my housemates are very pleased about. 

My aesthetic is anything pink, pastel and cute – I like vintage, flowery, but also creepy-cute and pastel-goth. I appreciate the duality of the aesthetic. I wear a lot of 60s and 70s style dresses, and if it doesn’t come in pink, I don’t buy it!’ 

9. Witchedfelis


‘Hi, My name is Puneet (Witched Felis : magickal name) and I am a natural Witch from India. I am an author and I have recently published a book on true paranormal encounters.
I am a Wiccan , Psychic and Clairvoyant. I also write a Blog where I express my views on witchcraft. Witchcraft for me is a way of living, An ancient way of living being aware of our body, mind, consciousness and the parallel dimensions. To be a Witch is to be leader of self, to be a healer and to be a guiding light for self and all those who come to you seeking help. I was born as a Witch and Since I live in India, Which is considered as a Land of Magick ,my Journey as a witch was smooth. I believe, there is a Wise Witch in all of us, but we just don’t choose to become aware of it. It’s a a beautiful path, and We create our own Path in this, We don’t follow a single religious book but write our Own book of Shadows- isn’t it interesting? We follow our Instincts and Strongly believe in what we are and Be proud of it. There are many subjects in Witchcraft and depending on our interest we choose to learn. I have been using tarot as a tool for learning philosophy , as a medium to read the fortunes, heal and understand the Underlying mindset.’

10. Angela, los angeles (@eastwest.sun)

‘Hello! I’m Angela from the suburbs of Los Angeles. I’m an outdoors girl at heart and on normal weekends, you can find me camped out in a van with my two dogs in the mountains or deserts of California. I have an incredibly bright and candy colored wardrobe. I know I don’t seem very witchy but my craft comes from the conjoining of two cultures. I practice elemental herbalism and healing, and I always try to honor my magickal roots — from California to Taiwan.’

I think my point here is proved, However, this is only the tip of the iceberg of the diversity of this practice, and I think that’s what makes it the most magical and powerful.
