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

E is for Eclipse

A total eclipse is what we see when the Earth’s shadow completely blocks the moon and it goes full dark for a period of time. Many times the moon looks red as the event takes place. This is what many people think of when they hear the words “lunar eclipse” and it has been an indication of major events in many cultures for a long time.

There are many mentions of eclipse in myths, legends and folklore.

Some practitioners see the eclipse period, which is generally pretty short, as being the equivalent of an entire lunar cycle packed into one brief event. In some modern magical traditions , a lunar eclipse is considered a sort of metaphysical bonus round – in other words, any spell work you do during this period is amplified and has a bit of extra power behind it.

Are you looking forward to the next eclipse?

ABCs of Magick – Why?

I know what you’re thinking:

  • “Great, another alphabet book.”
  • “My kid already knows their ABCs.”
  • “How badly are witches going to be depicted now”

This book is meant for children but it’s also meant for their parents, guardians, loved ones and any person who feels a little witchy. We are little witches at some point in our journey.

This book was created in alphabet format for a few reasons:

  1. Some children are still learning their ABCs.
  2. It’s easier to learn things when they’re alphabetized.
  3. Alliteration reinforces the concepts on each page.
  4. It’s helpful to see all of the different paths when they are laid out in order.

This book was created with bright beautiful illustrations to help drive home the fact that witches and other practitioners of magick are bright and beautiful too and not scary and dark as depicted across most media. The drawings show that any one can be a practicer of magick regardless of sex, age, color of skin, etc. Magick is all inclusive and so is this book.

This book was created with a seek and find aspect built into each page. The children are searching for their cat, Stardust, on each page. This allows for yet another thing to keep the reader engaged in the story.

I hope you enjoy this book and leave a comment below with any questions!
