One day I found a wreath of sticks with some fairy lights ripped out of my courtyard wound in with it. I seem to have had bad luck since..can you tell me what this is?
I have searched a couple of sites and cannot find any healing herbs correspondences and I was wondering if I could have some ideas as I am interested in brewing a herbal healing tea.
Should menstruation match with the right moon phase? and can a witch do spell work during her cycle or just meditate?
My cycle this month fell on the new moon but other times it falls during the waning moon which I have read that's when it actually should! I have also read that during menstruation it's a time when energies are not about the outside 'normal' world and it's more for contemplating and unravelling any messages coming to us during our cycle…What do you think? any more input into this?
So... I am debating if I should look further into this.. I have a strange connection to the Summer because of sign thoughts?
An old woman confronted to me today and called me The Child of Summer and The Gemini Cain.
I looked that up and it is the biblical representation of the Gemini Adam and Eve's sons.
I honestly wasn't sure about joining the Wiccan faith until this happening.
Someone burnt both ends of a plantain and wedged it between my window and AC unit. What does this mean?
They also left a stench that came in through the AC window unit. Almost as if a skunk had sprayed my AC. This is the second time being woken in the middle of the night to this strange smell, but it only comes in through the AC. There isn't any smell outside. Searched for anything inside the unit, but all I have found is the charred plantain. What spell did they cast? What could the smell have been? And other than making a police report, what can I do to stop what they did?
An unknown person left a jar with 2 pieces of cinnamon and 2 pieces of I think it's is apple. What might this mean?
i read something called ten days of dreams where your supposed to dream of something for ten days, it didnt happen and i was wondering if there is a spell or curse to make it happen to someone or myself or if there was a spell to make you dream of something specific
Dear witches, although I dont post as often as I would like to, I have always appreciated the insight this site offers. I had a dream last night which I think is quite symbolic for a witch but find it challenging to come up with a clear explanation…I dreamt I was out in the sea on a rock and a woman/bird flew and landed in front of me-she had a human body but her back was all covered with magpie feathers-mostly black and white. Then she started caressing and feeding a bird (which was not a specific breed bird) and I felt I wanted to do the same..but as I approached to touch the bird, it turned and bit a piece of my forefinger. I looked at it and saw that a small piece of flesh was bitten off and was dissapointed and shocked by the bird's hostility.
I have looked up what a magpie symbolizes but just the feathers on a woman/bird and the bird biting my finger off, is difficult for me to explain. Any insight on this dream?
I talked to a guy months ago and we talked for a while and we were supposed to go out but all of a sudden he changed his mind and the next day went out with his ex and told me he was sorry but he loved her, and i really liked him and i was upset for awhile but we remained on good terms. But about 2 weeks later he got into a really bad accident and broke both of his legs. Now fast track to maybe a month after that i met someone else he was everything and i was so into this guy and we moved in together but it was "complicated" because he wasn't ready for a relationship yet. All of a sudden he is never home anymore he's always gone. He comes back and tries to explain something i couldn't understand cause to me he wasn't making any sense. He leaves again and i haven't seen him in a few days… later to find out he ask a girl out and has been with her. I kick him out, but later we talk it out and i get over it. Mostly cause i knew something like this was going to happen but i still chose to go forward with it. But once again 2 weeks later he gets into a really bad accident, he sends pictures and they are bad and now he has a scar on his face, which is super ironic because of how vain he was and even mentioned of it didn't heal he would kill him self but its still there an low an behold he is still among us. Anyway, I haven't been with anyone since mostly cause i'm scared of getting hurt or worse the next guy who hurts me to get seriously hurt. I dabble in a little magic and was wondering if it might of been anything i might of done? Even though i promise with all my heart i never wish for anything like that to happen to them.

Thoughts on first altar set up.
For a while now I have been thinking of setting up a altar.
My question is more of a what is your constructive opinion on this set up.
I would like to honor Venus and Mercury. The plan is to have a cloth on which there would be the 4 elements in each respective direction. A candle for male and female. Venus and correspondence on female side and same with Mercury. Then add wand, chalice, incence and salt water.
Being a noob/Neophyte, please share thoughts in simple terms I won't be offended.
I was unsure if having two gods on one altar would cause conflict??? But have same dad (Jupiter) and are different genders.

I know of the elemental magick, ceremonial magick (arcane magick ?) and hedge ir green magick. I'm trying to find the right one.
When beginning Wicca or paganism, its difficult to find a starting point. Where do I start? How do I start this magikal path?
I am interested in continuing my studies to learn demonology, and I think that I have the right tools to keep me safe (Sacred space, salt, incense to ward off evil spirits, etc), but i want to know if this could be so etching I'm not yet ready for? What would the consequences of studying demons be whether I was, or was not prepared.
Can magick change my eye color, make my hair curly, shrink me tiny or make me invisible? What is and what isn't possible with magic?

My fiancé' family is cleaning out a home that his grandmother was renting out. The former renter died in the home of overdose. His mother found bags with dirt and stones in them, of which we do not know the exact contents or purpose of as we were not there when she disposed of them. She opened the bags and poured them into the trash. We also found a good amount of cinnamon sticks, dill weed and seed, and whole cloves. There was also what seemed to be an altar at the back of one of the cabinets that consisted of a small pitcher, cup, and tray with sea shells.
I am casting a separation spell. I will cast my circle but when calling the elemental powers I want to use a scented stick for the purpose of separation for the element of air. I want to use a candle for separation as the south element. And for element of earth use Salt, and well water for the element of water. But I'm wondering if a black candle is good, and maybe Jasmine scented stick is good?
