13 Spellbinding Witchy Movies You Have to See!

Gone are the days where witches are being portrayed as green mean evil villains and monsters to be destroyed. The times have changed and so as the portrayal of witches and witchcraft. More Witch-centric movies and tv shows portray witches as a symbol or feminine power and freedom. Isn't it beautiful to be alive and witness that witches and witchcraft are being respected the way it should be?
Relive some old witchy movies and discover the more recent ones with the list we conjured for you! Sit back, relax, grab a cup of witches' brew and enjoy!

1. Hocus Pocus (1993)

This movie is probably in everyone's Halloween movie list! This iconic Sanderson Sisters will put a spell on you and leave you hooked. This movie when it came out didn't really gain much appreciation, but it has come a long way. It has become a cult favorite and it's a tradition to watch it on every TV on Halloween!

2. The Wizard of Oz (1939)

No one can compile a list of witchy movies and leave out The Wizard of Oz. This movie has been a part of all our childhood! Glinda, The Good Witch, and the mean, green Wicked Witch of the West. The green face, pointy hate and nose, and high-pitched cackling were imprinted in our mind as to how witches are supposed to look like.

3. The Witches of Eastwick (1987)

When there's a witch in the west, then here are the witches of Eastwick. Susan Sarandon, Michelle Pfeiffer and Cher star in this dark-fantasy comedy film. A story of three friends recovering from the loss of loved ones and discovering their abilities as witches with the help of a mysterious enigmatic man. The witches went from reserved townsfolk to self-fulfilling individuals.

4. Kiki's Delivery Service (1989)

Kiki's Delivery Service is based on the 1985 novel of the same name written by Eiko Kadono, directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Kiki, the 13-year-old witch and her familiar Jiji embark on her journey of becoming an adult. Mind you she does this riding on a BROOMSTICK! This movie may be cute, but it talks about growing up and having independence. If you need some inspiration and a little self-confidence boost, Kiki's Delivery Service is the movie for you!

5. Practical Magic (1998)

If you're looking for a romcom witchy movie then Practical Magic is the movie for you. Before being known as the lady from Bird Box, Sandra Bullock together with Nicole Kidman were witch sisters standing up (the witchy way) against an oppressive man. If you want a great movie to watch with your sister or bestie, this movie is for you. An enchanting movie celebrating sisterhood!

6. The Love Witch (2016)

Even though this movie came out in 2016 the story's set in a very cool retro era. The story follows the story of a beautiful, narcissistic young sorceress named Elaine in her search for a replacement for her murdered husband (hilariously named "Jerry"). Being a love witch Elaine crafts love potions and has strong erotic powers. Talk about a witch with a hold of her femininity! If you are fond of crafting potions or want to become the baddest love witch, give this movie a go!

7. The Witches (1990)

This grotesque "kids movie" we think is way too dark for its demographic. The moment The Grand High Witch removed her human disguise we gagged and shrieked in horror. This movie will definitely teach kids not to talk to strangers!

8. Suspiria (1977)

The original Suspiria came out in 1977 and was remade last year starring Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, and Chloë Moretz. The original movie follows the story of a ballerina student named Susie in a prestigious European dance school that is actually comprised of a murderous coven of witches.

9. Inferno (1980)

A sequel to Suspiria, Inferno is about a brother and sister that get inadvertently involved in a world of witchcraft and alchemy. Aside from the eye-popping colors and the amazing direction by Dario Argento (the same director for Suspiria), the film's story is truly worth to be on your to-watch list. Also here's a spoiler: CATS. Cute ones!

10. Stardust (2007)

A fantasy adventure movie portraying witches as flesh-eating evil villains! Another film where Michelle Pfeiffer stars as a witch that's after a girl's heart that could give her and her sisters' eternal youth. Leave it to Pfeiffer to give justice to a vampy sorceress on a mission!

11. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005)

The White Witch in the Chronicles of Narnia is evil to the core. A merciless, cruel, and power hungry witch claiming the throne of Narnia. Instead of magickal spells and rituals, the white witch has a golden wand she uses to turn living things into stone. Scary!

12. Night of the Eagle (1962)

If you are looking for horror and voodoo magic then Night of the Eagle is a movie you should see. A successful college professor discovered that his wife has been practicing witchcraft to help with his career and after that everything went down straight to hell. Literally! We would love to elaborate, but we'd love for you to discover how things go down (pun intended)!

13. The Craft (1996)

Four high school girls coming together to harness the power of the 'creator' Manon. Sarah, Nancy, Bonnie, and Rochelle formed a coven and practiced witchcraft. Conjuring spells and curses against those who anger them! In this movie, the girls experience internal struggle whether to do good or be consumed by evil. A yummy 90's nostalgia treat!

Budget Witch Tips: 12 Ways to Practice Your Craft on a Budget

May 16, 2022

Just because you’re a witch doesn’t mean your craft has to cost a fortune. In fact, it should never cost a fortune unless you want it to. While witchcraft is different for everyone, practicing as a witch is often about finding magic in simple things around you and creating something beautiful from them. Social media has played a huge part in the expensive expectation for those first coming into witchcraft in this day and age. From large and extravagant altar setups to enormous luxury crystals, many people are under the impression that you have to have dozens of crystals, candles, and tarot decks in order to truly practice, but that’s not true. Don’t get us wrong, while these tools can be fun and inspiring to add to your collection and can help you to enhance the energy in your craft; they do not supply the magic––you do. The magic is within you, dear witch, and you put magic into everything you use, whether it’s cheap or expensive items, and we’re here to show you that.

May 2022 Monthly Horoscope: 12 Sign Overview
May 2022 Monthly Horoscope: 12 Sign Overview

April 28, 2022

As we move out of the inspiring and energetic energies of April, we move into the month of May with flying colors, welcoming new changes, transformations, and chances for renewal. To start, we will be kicking off the month in the balanced and assured sign of the Taurus. Often considered to be the mother of the Zodiac due to their kind, nurturing, and wise nature, the Taurus craves balance in all that they do. They are hardworking, know the importance of creating a good routine, and always approach their goals with a slow but steady pace. For that reason, the signs may also begin to bring these energies into their life this month. From creating a routine for yourself, focusing on small steps for your goals, or even just picking up the pace towards working towards your dreams, this month is all about gaining stability and finding what new direction you may wish to go with it. 


Aside from this, May also marks the official start of the eclipse season, which is sure to bring a plethora of new energies into our lives. With so many energetic shake-ups at this time, the signs could find themselves feeling more drained and disoriented. However, all of the changes are likely to help us align with our destined path later on. Aside from this, the planets will also be quite active this month, with Jupiter, Mars, and Mercury as the biggest influences. Jupiter will be lingering in the sign of the Pisces for the beginning of the month, making this an opportunistic time for the signs to seize new opportunities and take a chance. After this, Jupiter will then make its way through the sign of the Aries, pushing hard work, confidence, and a new dynamic in your life as the signs likely begin to feel a little more open-minded in trying new things. We will then welcome our next Mercury retrograde on May 10 in the sign of the Gemini, which is bound to bring some energetic shake-ups in our social lives as well as our communication skills. Lastly, we will then end the month in the sign of the energetic Gemini, pushing our social interactions, lust for adventure, and need for expansion to the extreme.
