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.

Magick Alphabet

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?

Magick Alphabet

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.

Magick Alphabet

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.

H is for Healer

Healers come from all walks of life, religion and places on the globe. Their practices are all different but share one thing in common: to heal. Some healers work with herbs 🌿 others with crystals 🪨 and others with their own inherent powers or magick ✨

Examples of healers include folk healing from the Appalachia Mountain region, Japanese Reiki healers and hoodoo practitioners.

Healer can mean many different things. What does it mean to you? ✨

Holidays

What is Mabon?

The pagan holiday of Mabon starts today on the Autumn Equinox. It is a time to celebrate balance and reflection. It is known as the Harvest Festival. Named after a god from Welsh mythology of the same name, Mabon is best celebrated with traditional fall items like apples and fallen leaves on your altar, going for a walk in the autumn air or clearing away unwanted clutter from your home. It’s also a great time to plant trees and shrubs if you have a green thumb!

The first day of fall represents so much to the magical world including the balance between dark and light (days and nights are equal again), the harvest bounty and the giving of thanks (think gratitude) as well a time of reaping what you sow, reflecting on your goals and how they manifested.

How do you celebrate Mabon and the Fall equinox? 🎃 🍁 🍂 🍎

Hello from Anna

“Come little children, I’ll take thee away, into a land of Enchantment. Come little children, the time’s come to play, here in my garden of magic.”

Sarah Sanderson in Hocus Pocus

Hello friends!

I’m a witch and a mother of two children who found it incredibly difficult to find children’s books that centered around anything magical, witchy or pagan. I have read my fair share of children’s books over the years – both good and bad – and I decided it was time for a change. I have been a writer since childhood. I thought it only natural to combine my two loves, magick and writing, into a series for children. 

I have been writing since I was about 10 years old. I’ve always loved writing fiction. I always loved being able to weave a story that surprises and excites the imagination. My house is loaded with books – bookshelves, big piles of books, short stacks of books. We have our occult library in a prominent place in our home.

According to my mother, I come from a long line of witches. I have always had a strong affinity for tarot cards and divination in general. I started working with the tarot when I was about 13. I am drawn to the moon on so many levels. I am not long into my witch journey so I’m very much a ‘Little Witch’ at heart.

I developed the idea for this book series after struggling to find books that spoke to my beliefs, showed a diverse collection of characters and concepts and showed witches in a whimsical but powerful way. I am sick of seeing witches depicted as monsters to be feared or fodder for Halloween books.

I’m hoping this blog will be a good place to drum up excitement about the new book series and answer any questions along the way.

Hope to chat more with you as the journey continues…
