Little Witch Info

Being a Little Witch

I started the Little Witch series with a goal in mind to help little witches of all ages find their way. Little Witches are new to the world of witchcraft and the occult and are looking for answers. They are not defined by sex, gender, race, age or religion. Anyone can be a little witch! Witches are kind and respectful to all people, animals, spirits and of course other little witches. They are friends and caretakers to the planet Earth. Little Witches are inclusive and show respect to all spiritual paths.

There’s a little witch in all of us.

Practical Magic

At heart, I’m a little witch. At this time, I’m in my 30s and I have two small children. I have been dabbling in the world of witchcraft and the occult for many years with my focus being on tarot and divination. I recognized that I am still a little witch because there is still so much to learn about the spiritual world and the magickal world around us.

My children are the reason that I made this book. At this time, they are 7 and 3 years old. Explaining my craft or any spiritual path to them at this time is difficult. Finding a book on the topic that’s fun and engaging is even more difficult. If you follow our Instagram account, you’ll see all of the books we’ve found that feature a witch or magick including classic works like The Wizard of Oz or indie Kickstarter publications like That Witch.

I am a writer. I’ve been writing since I was 10 years old. I have written everything from poetry to prose to plays. I enjoy variety as well as challenging my skills. This is my first time working on a children’s book. I’ve enjoyed it tremendously and I envision working on more books in the future.

There’s so much in the magickal world to look at and view through the little witch lens. We are embarking on a journey to learn all there is to learn so we can better ourselves.

Stay tuned for interviews, future blogs and more about witchcraft.

Q is for Quartz

Hey there Little Witches!

Clear Quartz is considered a master healer crystal. The meaning of clear quartz is spiritual growth and healing. There are many different kinds of quartz each with its own meaning and properties such as rose, snow and Smokey quartz. 

“It’s an amazing amplifying stone, meaning that whatever you pour into it, will pour out tenfold. The clarity of its many faces can spark memory, hone concentration, and bring your whole being back to balance.” – Tiny Rituals

Clear quartz can be used in place of many crystals in little witches rituals. It is colorless and/or white. It harmonizes all chakras, works with all zodiac signs and enhances psychic ability. 

Do you use quartz in your practice? What’s your favorite crystal, little witches?

P is for Pagan

Paganism has been around for a very long time (think pre-Christian times) and felt a growing resurgence in the magickal community since the 1950s. Most Pagans are polytheistic, believing in multiple gods and goddesses. Nature is sacred to the pagan community and they believe that humans are a part of nature just like animals, trees, rocks and everything else that is part of nature. Some pagans believe in reincarnation as well. 

Pagans have many festivals and ceremonies throughout the year including Imbolc, Beltane and Samhain. They also celebrate equinoxes. 

Pagan beliefs vary wildly depending on the branch or kind of paganism. If you’re a pagan, tell us something about your beliefs in the comments.

O is for Occult

The dictionary defines the occult as the mystical, magical and the supernatural. The occult includes topics that fall outside the realms of religion and science. 

“The occult” is a category into which gets placed a range of beliefs from “spirits or fairies to parapsychological experiments, from UFO-abductions to Oriental mysticism, from vampire legends to channelling, and so on”. – Hanegraaff 

The occult, coined in the 16th century, has changed over time. What does the occult mean to you?

N is for Necronomicon

Many people still believe the Necronomicon to be real, but it’s actually a work of fiction. Created my H.P. Lovecraft, the Necronomicon is a fictional grimoire often referred to as the Book of the Dead. It is referenced many times in Lovecraft’s books including it’s first appearance in the book “The Hound” in 1924.

The book contains the details regarding The Old Ones, their history and how to summon them. An example of an Old One would be Cthulhu. It is described as being a leather bound book with metal clasps. It is a substantial text boasting over 700 pages. It has been referenced in many movies, books and television shows.

What’s your opinion of this magickal grimoire?

M is for Magick

That’s magick with a K. Magick was first coined by Aleister Crowley. It was created as a way to differentiate between stage magic and otherworldly magick.

A fairly common explanation of magick is that it is a method of transforming the physical world through metaphysical means by employing ritual action. The practice of magick is to raise and direct energy to fulfill your intentions. One can do this through rituals, prayers, practice, meditation, etc.

There’s many different kinds of magick. There’s candle magick, altar magick, moon magick, green magick, etc.

L is for Learn

What have you learned recently? How did you learn it? 🤔

Little witches are always learning. Learning and growing. If you’ve learned all you can learn about tarot, why not try your hand at reading Leonormand or even rune readings? It can be frustrating learning new things but it can help to learn with a partner. Other ways to learn about something new in the magick world include reading blogs (like ours!), books, and even trial and error.

There is a world of knowledge for little witches to learn: from building your own grimoire to studying herbs you grew and harvested in your own garden to the study of your natal chart. There is always so much to learn

K is for Knowledge

Within the magickal world, there is no shortage of topics to learn about. One of the best ways to gain knowledge is through books. Books have been written on just about every subject within the magickal world from astral projection all the way to the zodiac. If you need knowledge on a certain subject, you can rest assured there’s a book for that. 

Knowledge can also be passed down from friend to friend, family member to family member or even within a coven or community of practitioners. The beauty of magick is that it is meant to be shared unlike in the olden days when magick had to be kept secret and knowledge was learned on a solo basis.

What is your favorite topic to learn about? What books are you reading?

J is for Jars

Jars, bottles, bowls, etc are used in all kinds of religious and spiritual practices. Jars can be used to store things like dried herbs, moon water, salts, tinctures, oils and more.

Jars are used to contain spells or mix up potions. For instance, for Mabon one could assemble a spell in a jar with acorns, leaves, cinnamon sticks, apples and orange oil. You could also add a candle and any other symbols of Fall.

What’s your favorite use of a jar in your practice? Tell us about it in the comments.

I is for Incense

Incense. It seems that all magick practitioners burn it. But why?

Some people burn incense during rituals, others burn it when meditating or in prayer, and others just like the way it smells. It is used to purify spaces, make offerings to gods and goddesses, and to amplify intentions as well as other uses. Incense is one of the oldest forms of magick dating back to Egyptian time and even the story of Jesus’s birth had incense as a gift.

Incense comes in all scents including popular patchouli, lovely lavender and earthy eucalyptus. It comes in different varieties like sticks and cones.

What’s your favorite incense scent? Let us know in the comments.
