Hello to all the witches out there, I have a question: Can you donate money offerings?
I like to do money offerings, just a couple of cents here and there. I don't offer the money to any specific deities, just kind of to all that is as thanks for the abundance in my life.
It's a couple of euros now, not that much but it kind of looks weird on my altar and I don't want to just put it in a box somewhere. It also feels wrong to spend it bc it's not really mine anymore, it feels disrespectful. Now I thought I'd donate it. Not to any specific organisation (bc it's like 3 bucks) but probably to a homeless person. My only concern is that it'd be bad luck to the person I'd give it to bc it already has been offered to something else? I hope that makes sense.
(Also I donate money all the time it's not like I'm hoarding money somebody else could be using.)

☽ little tips for witches ☾
here I will leave some very useful tips for those who have been in practice for some time, as well as for beginners. I hope this text will illuminate and help each one on their way! ✨
• to do energy cleaning in your home, put in a glass: water, coarse salt and charcoal. position it behind the entrance door.
• bury egg shells in a pot or in your home garden to ensure abundance and fertility in your home.
• do not put the ashes left over from the incense out, they can be reused in making the black salt.
• burn dry rosemary to attract protection, purification, psychic abilities and openness for healing.
• to attract positive energies to you, spread several mirrors around your home, just avoid those with sharp details on your edge. they also help to clear the mind.
• to ward off any bother that is bothering you, write the key words of the situation on a white candle. light the candle and ask the fire beings to burn this evil that you want to destroy.
• make a wreath with chamomile flower and hang it on the door to protect the environment throughout the year from physical and spiritual damage.
• use cinnamon to improve your individual skill with prophecy through divination, channeling and working with oracles.
• when making your own oils, use olive oil and dried herbs of your choice.
• press and store rosemary leaves in your books. this will increase your wisdom during your studies and your memory, making you learn more easily.
• burn some thyme on your altar to clean up your magic space. thyme when burned with incense strengthens psychic power.
Too much light! 🌿 🌿

The Black Ouroboros: An essay on the land-spirit of Bakersfield, California
Wikipedia says this in its opening paragraphs about the town of Bakersfield, California:
“Bakersfield is a significant hub for both agriculture and energy production. Kern County is the most productive oil-producing county in California and the fourth-most productive agricultural county (by value) in the United States. Industries in and around Bakersfield include natural gas and other energy extraction, mining, petroleum refining, distribution, food processing, and corporate regional offices. The city is also the birthplace of the country music genre known as the Bakersfield sound.”
This description is a sterile one. It is commodified and corporated. It states facts without allowing you to understand them; it lets you repeat them without parsing them. It is a Plato’s Cave of hubris, speaking truths without acknowledging their horror.
Bakersfield is a city that should not be. It is surrounded by miles around of arid desert until it reaches three different mountain ranges to its East, South, and West. It is geographically placed as the dregs of the San Joaquin Valley, and it should geologically be buried under several feet of water. Bakersfield is a metrocide that has not happened yet.
The Kern River once spilled from the Sierra Nevadas into the San Joaquin basin where Bakersfield now lurks. Its fertile soils became the boon to travelling founders along the California Trail just as they had been for the various Natives living before, settling as Baker’s Field. Eventually, the United States government built a dam up in the mountains, at the Lake Isabella, and the Kern River’s mountain run became less a river and more a drool of what water was permitted down its rocky hills.
The Kern River hates this, and it drowns fools each year as the blood price we pay for soaking its anger into concrete and electricity. One day soon, the Lake Isabella Dam will break, and Bakersfield will drown in over thirty feet of water in less than an hour. It is not more profitable to fix the dam than it is to kill over a million human lives. This is the price it will be paid, in time, and so it waits and feeds on appetizers, dormant like a snake in winter.
Where once Bakersfield’s money was in its almonds and oranges and cotton, water has become more and more expensive as climate change forced decade-long droughts. Now it is a safer investment to purchase farmland and sell the water rations given by shining Los Angeles to the poor farmers. I spoke to a man a few months ago who said that he could water his fields with the sweat and tears he’s shed over his lands if it wouldn’t salt the crops.
Many cultures across the world have believed in the idea of the land as a being. A great tortoise or a fertile mother, Creation myths abound of such tales. Oceans are wept by grieving eagles; mountains are formed by the sleeping bones of giantesses. Bakersfield’s land spirit has always been intrinsically connected to its lifegiver, the Palagewanap, the “place of the big river”. But how does a land change when its waters are killed? How does a spirit evolve when those that live within it are trapped, as so many Bakersfieldians colloquially talk of it? How does a place’s esoteric ecology adapt to miles upon miles of oil barrens and cracked dry earth where there once was water?
The answer is that it changes badly.
The land spirit of Bakersfield is a great black snake as wide as a rushing river. Its scales are sharp, like cacti thorns, and glimmer with the sickly rainbow of soap-bubbles. Its mouth is endless and in it are machineries—pipes, pistons, hydraulic and pneumatic jointed jaws and jagged crushing garbage disposal compactors. It slithers around the oil barrens and it runs its belly along the river when the humans allow its waters to flow, and it swallows anyone caught in its currents.
The philosophy of a haunted house is one of corruption. Of rot. The haunting is not the house, the haunting is the people within the house, which hate it, which makes it hate itself, which makes it hates the people within the house. The haunted house is an abusive relationship; the haunted house is a vicious cycle; the haunted house feeds itself its own trauma; the haunted house is an ouroboros, a snake swallowing its own tail.
Bakersfield, the city, is a haunted house. It is hated by its citizens, and it has learned to hate them back. The Black River Ouroboros of oil encircles its boundaries and swallows itself whole, and with it, everyone inside of it stagnates, in a half-life of petroleum and gentrification. One day the Black Snake’s source shall overflow and drown everything downriver of it, and millions will die. The United States government will call it a tragedy. But the United States government will also have been its killer, as it left the dam to die, and everyone beneath it as well. Hundreds of thousands of corpses floating in water that is sinking into the ground once more as the Kern River, the Palagewanap, sinks its bones back into its homeland to rest once more. Borrowed time finally, finally, having paid its dues.
There is a species of endangered blackbird native to California. It is called the Tricolored Blackbird, scientific name Agelaius tricolor. It faces habitat loss of its native environment: wetlands and swamps. Perhaps in the future the blackbirds—if they are still alive—will settle upon the fields and peck at the flesh of the humans. Perhaps cottonwoods and cattails will grow where Ming Avenue once ran. Perhaps bullfrogs will sing hymns to the dragonfly-laden night sky like they have not in centuries. Perhaps the land spirit will be changed by this as well, and have six wings of black capped with crimson and wheat-yellow, and instead of a starving maw it will have a beak to sing glories to halcyon paradises. Perhaps those wings will spread across the valley to shelter it once more, its black iridescent scales becoming matte. Fallen logs are often hothouses of life, their decaying wood home to dozens of species of fungus, moss, mold, and insect. Perhaps Bakersfield, too, will become such an environment when it dies.
The corpse of a city decomposing back into wetlands and swamp like it was once, long ago. Cycles of nature existing long before and long after we will be gone. There is a comfort to that, in the same way there is a comfort in seeing the final girl of the horror film standing strong, cold, bloodied, with her ax. Alive, in some ways. Dead, in many more. A divine transmutation of being, combining two opposing forces to a harmonious rebis.
The Great Work of Bakersfield: to, one day, allow itself to die.

do you have any tips on how to start studying witchcraft? i’m totally new and don’t know what to do:(
☁︎ 𝐡𝐨𝐰 𝐭𝐨 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐲𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐜𝐫𝐚𝐟𝐭
hi, lovely, thank you for asking! i wish you all the luck in the world in your studies. here are a few tips from me.
ideas for how to start studying:
read. when i first started studying witchcraft, tumblr was my only resource because i couldn’t really go out and buy witchy resource books. however, i have a solution for that. this is a link to a cite that allows you to download books for free. yes, it works and it’s safe. guests can download five books per 24 hours, but if you create a free account you can download more. they have lots of books on witchcraft on here—but not all of them. there are also some tumblr posts floating around that have free pdfs of witchy books as well, so keep an eye out for that.
watch youtube videos. there are lots of vloggers out there who make instructional videos on witchcraft, especially at the beginner level. they have videos on all sorts of topics—like things you should research as a baby witch, how to compile a grimoire/book of shadows, how to cast spells, etc.
know that everyone who shares how-tos about witchcraft is biased. yes, even me. what works for me may not work for you. and what works for you may not work for the most revered witch on youtube. that’s okay. you’re not doing anything wrong. follow your intuition and allow it to guide you. that’s the principle here on my blog. i prefer to post about diy witchcraft or do-it-yourself witchcraft, meaning i want to encourage witches to sit down and craft their own information rather than regurgitating someone else’s. however, that might not be your cup of tea. you might not have an issue with the consensus’s definition of magick, and that’s cool. just be sure, as you’re studying magick, you’re able to (1) recognize that you’re learning from one person’s experience and (2) discern whether or not those experiences will work for you.
write notes. anything that jumps out to you when you’re reading or watching videos you should write down. when you’re new, a lot of information will seem enticing, and you want to absorb it all like a big sponge. there’s nothing wrong with that. but, what makes it wrong is when you start to dread or feel uncomfortable by something. for me, personally, i never liked the idea of making my magick religious, and not for lack of trying! everyone and their grandmother on witchblr seemed pagan, so i thought something must be wrong with me if i’m not. i tried to worship deities, but i always felt stupid when i did it because i didn’t believe. i even tried incorporating christianity into witchcraft, but that didn’t feel right either. eventually, i decided i wouldn’t make my craft religious. it does make things frustrating when i’m reading a book, and it’s chock-full of wiccan rituals or pagan spells, but i’ll still read it because the book may cover a topic i’m interested in. tldr; feel comfortable in the idea of taking some information and leaving the rest.
rewrite your notes. the first time you write, i would recommend putting it in a cheap/old notebook where you can be as messy as you want. once you finish, go back, reread, cut out things you think you’ll never use, and rewrite your notes. (preferably in your own words, but i understand that can be difficult.) now, you can choose to rewrite these in your grimoire or a different notebook. doesn’t matter. what you’re doing here is teaching yourself discernment and critical thinking. when you start to cut things out, you’re narrowing it down to the types of magick you do want to practice. (of course, this can change over time, but it’s a good place to start.)
don’t wait to practice until you know everything. because that will literally never happen. there will be a point when you realize everyone teaching these baby witch tips is regurgitating the same information over and over again. that is the point (actually, it’s well past the point) that you need to close tumblr and start practicing. because, at that point, the only person you can learn from is yourself. in practicing your magick you can find out what really works for you, and what’s excessive. don’t feel guilty about cutting down your craft, it’s necessary. (another personal example: i don’t have an altar. I did at the beginning, but it became useless to me over time, so i cut it out of my craft.) start practicing the little things—such as grounding and cleansing—early on. it’s okay if you forget what to do or nothing happens, you’re learning.
use yourself as a resource. yup, i’m back on my diy witchcraft bullshit. i’m going to post about this soon, but you need to use yourself as a resource. you might be thinking, “nan, how the hell do i do that when i’m new?!” well, i’ll tell you. correspondences. there are hundreds of posts about them on tumblr—color correspondence, crystal correspondence, fabric correspondence, moon phase correspondence—are all meaningless if you disagree. see, the color red is commonly associated with love and lust, so witches stress to use a red candle when performing that type of magick. well, what if you think red represents creativity? then go with your meaning. wow, i know, that’s a radical thought, but seriously it personalizes your craft and brings you closer to it.

Everyday things you probably already do that can be WITCHY with intention:
🌙 Showering - As every witch knows, it’s important to cleanse your space often! A daily shower is a perfect way to cleanse yourSELF! Ritual baths are amazing, but when life gets busy, we don’t always have time to sit and soak. Use your alone time in the shower intentionally. Clean your body while imagining all of the negative energy of the day washing off of you. Use certain soaps or bath products in conjunction with specific intentions. (Rose for universal love, peppermint for wealth, chamomile for purification, etc.) Remember to be intentional in your thoughts as well. Showers are a great place for meditation and manifestation!
🌙 Applying makeup/doing your hair - These are things we typically do in front of a mirror. A mirror is the perfect gateway to connect with ourselves for a bit of reassurance. Use this time to state positive affirmations or mantras.
🌙 Cleaning your home - Cleaning our sacred spaces is another great way to banish negativity and protect our energy. Use certain scents around your home to match certain intentions, and listen to high frequency music while cleaning to keep your energy lifted.
🌙 Falling asleep - If you’re anything like myself, having noise in the background while you’re getting ready for bed can be very comforting. However, it is extremely important to be intentional about the things we watch or listen to, even subconsciously, before laying down. The alpha and theta brainwave states of consciousness we enter before bed are heavily influenced by our surroundings. Try to watch or listen to TV shows or movies with positive or uplifting messages that are light hearted, or even better yet, try guided meditations!
🌙 Working - This one is so much easier said than done. Sometimes when we are working, our mind tends to wander to things we’d rather be doing instead. Alternatively, if you struggle with happiness or contentment at work, try to avert your thoughts into a positive direction. Think about your dream job. Think about how you’ll achieve your career goals, and how what you are doing now will help you progress forward with these motivations. The universe is always listening. Instead of thinking about how you dislike your job, even if you do, instead think about how much you’d LOVE to do your dream job. This will bring you much closer to your end goal a lot more quickly. Always remember: Positive attitude = positive results!

The Magic of the Pines & Correspondences 🌲
“In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines
And you shiver when the cold wind blows”
Pine Tree (pinus spp.)
Energy: Both hot & cold
Associated Deities: Aphrodite, Astarte, Attis, Cybele, Dionysus, Pan, Venus, The Horned God
Fertility • Love • Purification • Healing • Banishing • Protection • Abundance
There are around 115 types of pine trees and, aside from oak, pine trees are the most successful and widely ranging trees in North America. Pinyon pine nuts are edible and can be ground to make flour, pine oil is used as an antiseptic, pine rosin can be used in soaps and sealing wax, and some Native American tribes used pine gum to treat boils.
The ancient Romans used pine trees cut from sacred groves in a manner similar to modern-day Christmas trees. They would take the trees the night before Saturnalia and place them in temples to be decorated and used as a fertility symbol.
Dreaming of tall straight pine trees means that you will receive good news.
Pine needles can be burned to cleanse and purify the home (mix equal parts juniper & cedar) and to reverse spells and hexes made against you. Scatter the needles on the floor to drive away those with ill-intent. Add crushed pine needles to bath sachets in winter for a relaxing magical cleansing. They can also be used in sleep and dream sachets—just make sure they won’t poke through!
Use branches of pine to sweep an outdoor area before performing magic. Branches can also be placed above the bed to keep sickness away, above the entrance to the home to ensure continual joy within, and a cross of pinch branches or needles above the fireplace will keep evil from entering through it.
Pinecones can be carried or hung in the home to increase fertility and to stay well in old age. Place one near your bed or under your pillow to draw or keep a lover.
Burn pinecones in your hearth to protect (and warm!) your home.
Place pinecones in your office to draw prosperity and success.
To draw positivity and blessings to you tie a bundle of pine needles with thread and burn them. Pass pinecones through the smoke and place them on your altar or in a place you will see them often. Send grateful energy toward them as you pass by them and good things will flow toward you.
