Practical Witchy Parenting Tips

November 06, 2018 1 Comment


A parent’s job isn’t easy. A parent’s job lasts twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week for the rest of your life. Instead of constantly worrying about your children, if they’re being taught the right things and whether they’re healthy and safe, why not use a little magic? Here’s our list of practical witchy parenting tips!

1. Bedroom Protection
There are hundreds of ways to physically and spiritually protect your children at home. Start by planting a magical plant outside their bedroom windows: purple lilacs ward off evil spirits and thorny bushes like rose or bougainvillea keep spiritual AND physical intruders at bay. Hanging a beech tree branch above the child’s window protects from lightning strikes.
A sprig of rue or rosemary hung above the crib or bed protects the child from the fairies.

2. Night-time Fears
Many children are afraid of the dark. Some are even unfortunate enough to have ongoing nightmares or night terrors. In addition to a simple nightlight, place large chunks of rose quartz and selenite in the child’s bedroom (if your child is very small, put it high out of reach). Rose quartz soothes a child’s nerves while selenite brings in white light and angelic protection.



3. Outside Protection
We know how to protect our children at home, but what about when they leave the house? Kids have to
go to school, doctor’s appointments, sports activities, friends’ houses, and more. So how do we protect them while they’re away? Cleanse and charge a charm for protection and clip it to their backpack so they’ll have it at school. The same can be done with a necklace or piece of jewelry. Every night, pray to the ancestors or gods to protect your children while they’re gone. You can also visualize a white bubble of impenetrable protection around your children while they’re away.

4. Juggling Parenthood and the Craft
Many parents of the craft complain they don’t have enough time to practice and be a proactive parent.
As a parent myself, I completely understand. But just because you can’t do an elaborate ritual every esbat doesn’t mean you don’t have time for a small daily ritual. Even just lighting incense at your altar as an offering to the gods/ancestors is enough to maintain a practice. Spend fifteen minutes a day reading a spiritual book. Or ten minutes writing in your Book of Shadows. Adjust to fit your family’s needs AND your own witchy needs.


5. Magical Meals
One easy, effective way to add magic to your witchlings’ lives is kitchen witchcraft. By adding herbs and
intention to your meals, your kids will literally take the magic into their bodies. This is a very powerful
thing. Also be aware of the magical properties of the foods you feed them. Rosemary infused in soups ensures good memory for tests and overall health. Cinnamon sprinkled over hot chocolate brings success in school and sports. Sugar sweetens the mood (but not too much or they’ll get the sugar crazies!) A glass of orange juice in the morning brightens and motivates kids for the day ahead. You can even include your kids in the kitchen for an extra magical meal!

6. Children’s Altars
If your kids are constantly playing with the items on your altar, why not let them create their own altars?
By giving them a space to put their own sacred objects, you give them an area of play and spiritual practice. Something as simple as a shelf in their room to display their seashells, animal figurines, special stones, and photos of loved ones is a perfect altar for a child and a great way to teach them about the craft.

August 2021 Monthly Horoscope
August 2021 Monthly Horoscope

July 31, 2021

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.

Celebrating Lughnasadh: The First Harvest
Celebrating Lughnasadh: The First Harvest

July 15, 2021

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.

Moon Water 101: What it is, How to Make it, and How to Use it.

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.
