What goes into a good spell? Mugwort? Thyme? Bat Wool? Dragon’s Blood? Most witches know the first and best ingredient is your intentions. What are you trying to achieve? Focus on that. Your intention is what makes the spell powerful. The rest of the ingredients can come from your kitchen, your garden, the Apothecary down the street, it doesn’t matter where you get them, as long as your intentions are good. Remember, you get back what you put out. And don’t forget to write it all down for next time.
The theme this month is a Witches Halloween Spellbook.
Witch Cat by Joao Vagner inspires me to create some Halloween haiku with this month’s theme in mind.
A Lykoi is a domestic shorthaired cat with a natural mutation. Lykoi sometimes are partially hairless, particularly in the face, giving them a werewolf-like appearance, hence the the name Lykoi, which means wolf in Greek.
March is the month dedicated to legendary creatures, from leprechauns to fairies, the Dullahan to selkies, these legends, myths, and stories touch upon almost every aspect of our lives, as we draw strength, belief, love, and courage from these mystical beings.
Okay, well our theme this February is love and death, but this wallpaper taken from wallpaperup.com is too cute to pass up for Caturday.
I cannot find artist information for this one. I absolutely believe in giving credit to these talented human beings, so if you know who created this wallpaper, please send me an email at Halloweenkristy@gmail.com or comment below with a link.
Happy Halloween! This month we celebrate Halloween icons and the Black Cat is as synonymous with the holiday as the jack-o-lantern. Dark as night, cool, mysterious, irreverent guardians, it’s no wonder how they became so feared, blameful of calamity, and deemed witches’ familiars, cats simply appear to have their own agenda.
One starry night, I saw a black cat looking up at the moon.
Do you think animals wonder about the moon? We certainly know lunar cycles have an affect on animal behaviors, but I can’t seem to find the answer to whether they admire the moon and star gaze like people.
World renowned artist Aja Trier picks up where van Gogh left off, by painting animals, landscapes, famous cities, and more under the infamous starry night. With titles like ‘The Haunting of van Gogh’ and ‘van Gogh Never Saw Las Vegas’, Ms. Trier is clearly inspired by the doomed Impressionist and her works are more tribute than imitation.
Happy Caturday! This month is dedicated to the witches call, a feeling or vibe one gets when exposed to the elements. There are many types of witches, kitchen, green, divination, cosmic, etc, etc. Pay attention to how the natural world draws you in. The power is inside you. Coven or no coven, follow the path. Ignoring the call only delays the inevitable.
March is a magical month. It’s women’s month. It’s a witches’ month. Winter is winding down and we should take time to relax and replenish a little before we get busy on spring tasks. I know 2021 was off to a shaky start, but I hope things are turning around, wherever you are.
