Key charms and spells: A bit of everyday magick that anyone can do with ordinary objects which don't look the slightest bit out of place in the mundane world.

"Questioning and discernment are important." If I ever join a magickal community again in my lifetime, it will be because I finally found a group which makes both of these a regular practice. I'm pretty sure my habit of questioning is part of why I and groups don't usually get on regardless of the group.

When I used to say that I felt the use of the word "rangoli" was cultural appropriation in my former spiritual community, and that we really needed to call our sand painting something else because rangoli is a specific Hindu practice, I either got dumped on or shut down.

Listening to Ta-Nehisi Coates talk about how white people don't own words, and shouldn't just get to use everything, I feel better about having made those arguments. And two years after my departure, I am more glad I left that group.

Saffron, from flower to threads. The corms traditionally wrap up right around Samhain.

"instead of wheel of the year im using wheel of witchblr discourse that makes the rounds every few months to tell time and figure out when to plant and harvest my crops.

my new sabbat list includes:

- someone doesnt understand the 3fold law is only a wiccan thing and starts curse-shaming non-wiccans for cursing
- the “blessed be” debacle happens again, creepy invasiveness be damned
- people conflating wicca with witchcraft / gatekeeping other people’s crafts
cultural appropriation in droves so we have to bring out the afterschool special ^tm posts (special addition, appropriating person says “i was that race, but like,,in a past life”)
- someone wants to shame people who like aesthetics, calls them “fluffy bunnies”
- TEH BURNING TYMES WERE REAL AYE TELL YEA AND I SAW GOODY PROCTOR WITH TEH DEVIL
- “witchcraft is only for cis womyn uwu✿ ” bullshit, sometimes even brought back by terfs that dont even practice witchcraft ??¿?
- someone has a problem with other people using emoji spells, despite no one forcing this rando to use emoji spells.
- “love spells are basically rape” discourse happens about the same as a blue moon

this shit happens like clockwork man im telling ya"

One of my extra-moms-in-life passed. Safe travels to her, and my sympathies to my Sister-from-Another-Mother and her family. What is remembered lives.
