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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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)!
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!

As we welcome in the warm month of August, we kick off the birthday season of the mighty lion sign, Leo, preparing us for an inspired, confident, and roaring month of creativity and opportunity. Be prepared for some major inspiration in your creative endeavors, as well as a boost in your personal power, as these are what this glamorous fire sign is all about. But, aside from the influence of the daring Leo, we will also be welcoming in some other rambunctious energy this month with the retrograde of 4 planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus), which is likely to leave the energy in the air a little chaotic and unpredictable. We may find ourselves in a bit of a mental fog as we revisit energies, problems, and people of the past and must tread very carefully through each of them.
Aside from this, August will also be bringing the Lionsgate Portal, which will be coinciding with the new moon on August 8th. This is a powerful day of cosmic opportunity that only comes once a year as we connect with higher frequencies and move into alignment with our divine selves. It is also a very lucky day for manifestation and abundance work, so get ready for some karmic energy to take place. The month will then end in the earth sign of the humble Virgo and welcome in a full moon in Aquarius, bringing individualism, community, and a final close to certain doors in our life. This is not a time to act rashly.
Overall, August is expected to be a highly energetic month full of opportunities for new creative outlets and a better alignment with our divine selves overall. But to give you a deeper look into what you can expect personally, today, we're going to touch on what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect to feel throughout the powerful month of August and how you can truly make the most of it. Let’s get started.
As we transition out of the blazing heat of July, we begin to slowly shift into the cooler days of the harvest season. With the coming of August, we enter the first of the three harvest festivals known as Lughnasadh. Lughnasadh (also known as the Lammas or the grain harvest) is one of the eight sabbats of the Wheel of the Year that marks the start of the harvest season. This is the time of which we begin to reap the rewards of the labor we’ve put in the last few months and give thanks to the earth for its abundant harvest. However, Lughnasadh also means we begin preparation for the cooler months of the second half of the year and begin to shift our focus towards the act of slowing down. Therefore, this is a very significant time of mental and physical change for everyone. And today, we’re going to talk all about it.
In this article, we're going to go over everything having to do with Lughnasadh. From its history to its correspondences, traditions, and a few ways you can celebrate it today, let’s dive in and get started with everything you need to know about this merry sabbat.
The moon is considered to be one of the most divine sources of healing energy when it comes to spiritual practices. Connecting directly with our soul energy, ritual practices have been based around lunar cycles for centuries. From dances in the woods on the full moon to powerful intention-setting rituals on new moons, the moon guides us to journey within ourselves to set our inner magic free. But if dancing naked in the forest isn’t your thing, don’t worry, there are plenty of other ways to harness the moon’s energy in a modern sense, and one of the most popular ways to do that is through moon water.
Moon water is one of the most simple and common practices to perform to collect the moon’s energy and can be done in just a few minutes by anyone with access to water and a container. Here's a simple beginner's guide to making moon water at home and how you can use it in your daily spiritual practices.
