I’m so new to practicing practical magic. I’m intuitive as far back as I can remember. Today I learned that spell work is best done during a waxing moon and waning moons are for gratitude and rest.

@DaynaLayna you will find the best ways to cast spells & how to approach creating your own spells & rituals too! Even though I feel like I know the best parts of the moon phases, I’m working on each phase & what is best to work with during those times too!

@gigiandbrad090621 tarot is also a very popular subject! We have a lot of information & I would suggest :flower_playing_cards: Tarot Poems by The Gifted and Talented Kasie & we also have the Whole Tarot Course. Feel free to search the forum or the site for other resources too!

Currently, I am working on learning Runes, I just recently found my connection to them & have been drawing 1 each day & learning about that rune or reviewing what I have found. I also have information posts in the forum in case any other people want to learn more also. I have put together a master post with the topics of runes listed so you can easily find the information throughout the forum: Runes Information

Currently learning the old ways of majick by being a weaver of spells. Using mala beads currently to practice and with each little daily activity a little bit more of majick manifests. :face_with_peeking_eye:)

I am currently dabbling in Palmistry (still lol), Runes, and now I am looking into Sex Magick and Tantra. I tend to always have something on 2-3 burners that I am learning or exploring. :nerd_face: :rofl:

Honestly, right now I am working on self-awareness, self-love :heartpulse:, self-care :two_hearts:, & working through the dark side :new_moon: It may not sound “witchy” :pentacle_tarot:, but it is because I can’t effectively set intentions if I can’t trust my intuition or have the self-confidence & assurance of mind that I am doing things correctly & for the right reasons. I am going through the Shadows & untangling the mess of cords :knot: that bind me to things that have nothing to do with me right now & releasing them so I am able to keep going forward with my family. The Empath side of me struggles with protecting my energy & keeping myself taken care of first. Baby steps :footprints: :smiling_face:

I’m into doing physical, practical things with people and connecting right now. Connecting to other people’s hearts and my own. And, this is a big one, finding my voice and the confidence to use it. :heart:

I’m learning more about Lord Shiva and feeling a connection that’s strong and gentle at the same time. I think I finally found a face of the Divine Masculine that clicks with me. :blue_heart:

@CelestiaMoon I am in the same boat as you right now. I’m doing some similar things. I had been working on setting boundaries & was able to set some that were needed with my children as they transition to adulthood & are learning to do their own thing. All while learning how to parent my new teenage girl & all of her junior high goings on & this generation is glued to their phone & each other! Oh my! :flushed:

(Family Link by Google is a gift. I can lock her phone overnight so she’s not on it all night long with texts & social media apps on school nights especially)

I have been feeling better & better able to manage my days. I have started taking courses to become a Certified Crystal Healer & Advanced Practitioner. Mostly to strengthen my own work with my crystals effectively for my practice…

I’m also working on being outside more & grounding by working with earth. I have planted climbing nasturtium around my two oak trees & raked out all of the leaves :leaves: , pine needles, & mossy areas. I raked out the leaves from my gladiolas, hyacinth, & planted a sheet of wild flowers next to them. I"m learning to find calm in the sounds & feelings of nature & the sun :sun: Since I have gotten better at meditating & grounding through spending time outside with nature, I will be starting my Tree Spirit Ally Guided Meditation :woman_in_lotus_position:

I had done it before & felt so good afterward, when I couldn’t do much outside, I made sure to do what I had agreed to do with it :deciduous_tree: I cleaned around it, added flowers to it, & made a nook to be able to sit with it whenever I feel like I need to do so.

With my family & friends I am trying to be more involved with plans & not just pop in & sneak away when no one is paying attention :face_with_open_eyes_and_hand_over_mouth: I had gotten really good at being able to do that in under 5 minutes in my neighborhood. :rofl: So I’m trying to do things like meet parents of my daughter’s friends, go to cookouts with family friends, visit the neighbor for more than a quick second.

Sounds silly, but they are big to me :smiling_face: I even started breaking up my errands to get me out at different times of day depending on which direction I was going in at the end of the road. (Left goes into my town, right goes further down the Cape)

I recently learned that my mother is either a witch, raised by a witch, or she has the most coincidences EVER attached to her.
Shes from Berlin GE and my grandfather had a nursery so herbal healing was HUGE in my house…but wait, theres more…
As a kid she used to tell me the story of Frau Holle…who I learned today is a German Diety.
Herbal healing for anything and everything…especially Peppermint, chamomile, and/or green tea.
She celebrates the sabbat in a low key way because “that’s just how she grew up”
She can smell snow, rain, coming
She looks to the moon to plant her garden
and a million other little things I never really noticed as “witchy” before now. I can’t figure out how to ask her about it. She’s very private with her practices

That’s really exciting about finding that your mother has a magickal practice, Susan! :blush: I’d trust your senses- if it’s something very private for her, it may be best not to address it abruptly and directly. Instead, perhaps you might just talk with her casually about her passions? If you seem enthusiastic and welcoming, she may open up on her own- although she may not consider what she does to be “magick” in name! I’ve met quite a few people who do what I consider to be magick but who don’t consider themselves to be “witches” by that title.

The only way to know is to keep trying- I hope, one way or another, you’re able to connect with your mother and share your love for the things you both enjoy! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I’ve been learning about different plants and their usages as well as more on tarot (although I’m starting to believe I can never find all the things I want, because we are constantly learning and tarot is infinite) with that being said I’ve started thinking more on palmistry and runes :thinking::face_with_monocle:however I’m starting to see that everything I need is already within me and I’ve got to learn and lean on my own intuition and understanding before I’m able to learn anything more. I’m kinda stuck at this moment because it seems the more knowledge I’m craving to learn, the less I’m able to actually absorb if that makes any sense?!

It almost feels like I’m racing against a clock. I do feel however that the thing I’m actually hoping to learn will make itself known to me before this body’s life suit parishes, because I’m not coming back to this plain. On to the 5D. I just have had this kind of tug to do any form of divination. I just can’t stay interested into one form or the other. They all begin and end with everything I need to learn and feel that there is to, yet I’m still left with a desire to learn more. I don’t understand what it is I’m needing to do or learn. That’s technically the reason I joined this group.

I’ve always had a calling for these things and I came from a long line of healers. I just don’t know where and what to do or how to go about any of it so I’ve dabbled into almost everything and still no answer.
I want to learn, I crave knowledge of any kind and I feel that it has something to do with helping others as well as myself. I’m currently writing a book (several actually) about the story of my first awakening and dark night of the soul and I actually feel I’m on some kind of “spiritual timeout” or probation. It’s like I can’t hear or feel anything anymore. It has me worried but I have no drive because it feels monotonous sometimes and I lack the motivation to even start​:face_with_spiral_eyes::weary::sob:

I’m just here I guess lol. Until I’m reinstated with whatever motivation I had I’ll just continue to be my crafty self and learn about plants and things :woman_shrugging:t3: I’m sorry for the novel…it’s kinda been my thing lately to write :grimacing::smirk:

I am still working on crystals, I have finished my first set of classes & now I am working on chakra energy because there is a part of the crystal healing that deals specifically with the chakras.

They touched on the 9 that they work with throughout the school, but I want to know what I can about the main 7 & then the other 2 that we worked with above the head & below the feet. I also learned there are micro chakras in your hands, so to sense the energy of a crystal & be more receptive, you should rub your hands together briskly for a few seconds before handling the crystal you are getting to know or are working with at the time. I am reading a Chakras for Beginners book in the current book club & I have also been learning to trust my intuition more through the inner work that I have been doing. There are actually books on 12 & there are around 114 chakras that have been identified.
