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.

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.

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?

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?
