When You’re Spiritually Exhausted

I was listening to one of my all-time favourite podcasts, Tarot for the Wild Soul with Lindsay Mack, and she said something that really hit home with me. Well, to be honest, every episode she says something that really hits home with me. Anyway, fan-girling aside. Lindsay was talking about how tarot card reversals often indicate resistance. For example, a reversal of the Death card; perhaps we are resistant to an ending. The end is near, but we don’t want to see it. The reaso

Help Me – I’m Bored Sh*tless!

HAPPY MONDAY, everyone! If you live in a country that still holds to Christian holidays above all else, you are probably on a long weekend right now, and usually you’d be outside, breathing in that beautiful springtime air. However, we are not doing that, unless you have a lovely garden, congratulations. Photo by Connor James on Unsplash For those of us in apartments, flats, studios, bedsits and rented rooms with horrific housemates, this is a trying time. Not only are we goi

Witchcraft Wednesday: Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize

Happy Wednesday, witches and friends! It’s my favourite day of the week to share with you, because Wednesdays we wear pink and do spells. Very quickly: the One Boss Witchcast will be premiering on Spotify and Anchor this week! I’m so excited to bring it to you. Please make sure you check in and sign up for the newsletter so it gets delivered to you each week. And let me know what you want to hear about! I realise that the title of this post may be initially misleading, but le

When You’re Too Tired to Witch

I saw an interesting post on Facebook yesterday which was essentially saying, it’s okay if you’re too tired to Witch right now. And that resonated with me. As I’ve said before, sometimes we can fall into the trap of labelling ourselves ‘good’ or ‘bad’ witches, in the sense of we might practise every day or not at all for weeks (not in the sense of ‘dark’ magic/k). For me, I’ve been feeling it lately, because I not only have a super busy work and PhD schedule, I also have some

Productivity: Break It Down

One of the best pieces of advice I have in terms of productivity is to break it down. There’s nothing more confronting than a huge to-do list, especially when it includes things like, “WRITE CHAPTER”. That’s not helpful to anyone, Witches. A person wearing pale blue trousers rests their feet. When we have full schedules and full lists of sh*t to do, it can be incredibly overwhelming. What happens when we get overwhelmed? We panic, we don’t do any of it, and we binge watch an

PhDs and Calming Teas: Practical Self-Care Tips for People Who Have Way Too Much Sh*t On Their Plate

Don’t worry, this isn’t a poem. Despite working a bit with rhyming when it comes to my own spellwork, I’m not really into writing poetry on the whole. I like reading (some of) it. I realised that I haven’t touched much on what it’s like to be doing a PhD, which I’m sure a lot of you will be familiar with. A lot of PhDs are in the science and mathematical fields, but mine is pure research and writing. Since it’s sociological, there’s no lab work. I did my interviews in LA last

Being a ‘Good’ Witch

It’s the human condition. We all want to be the best at what we do, whether that’s work, or hobbies, or family, or just being the best cook in the family (I’m not). This idea of having to ‘do’ things properly – i.e., you can’t be a real painter unless you’ve taken classes, or you can’t be a singer because you don’t get paid to sing – is damaging. It’s damaging to creativity, it’s damaging to self-worth, and it’s damaging to the very core of what spirituality and passion, and

Saying NO to Sh*t You Don’t Need

Blessings, Boss Witches! Today I wanted to do a little extension on my post about releasing what no longer serves you. It’s all very well to say to let go of the sh*t in your life that you don’t need, right? Like toxic people – BYEEEE. A person in red trousers and a black and white striped shirt dances on an empty road with a red scarf. But what about when opportunities come up and it doesn’t feel quite right, but you’re tempted anyway? This happens a lot to me with work stuf

What to Do When Anxiety Hits and You Don’t Have Time for That Sh*t

It happens to the best of us. Anxiety is a thing that is kind of always with you. If you suffer from anxiety, whether just occasionally or on the regular, you’ll know what I’m talking about. You have mountains to do. You have a to-do list the length of the walk from the ice cream aisle back to the fresh produce. You have 11 missed calls and you haven’t even rung your mother in weeks. You are one busy Witch. And then the anxiety hits. Three colourful hourglasses. Your heart is

Aromatherapy for Healing and Relief: 101

I literally love my aromatherapy. I couldn’t love it more. I have an expansive set of essential oils for various ailments, and I want more. I want them all. Here’s a basic rundown of what’s in my kit, and what I use them for… A wooden aromatherapy diffuser. I have this diffuser and I am in love with it. It lasts for ages and lets off a glorious, aromatherapy steam. You can also customise the lights! My favourite combinations to put into it are: 10 drops lemongrass, 10 drops p

How to Meditate When Sh*t Is Stressful

It’s all very well to say we need to meditate every day, but sometimes you just want to watch Netflix and eat crap and feel miserable in peace. Why can’t we be left alone to be miserable? Why do we have to meditate? Benefits of Meditation: A person sits high up on a hillside, looking out over a city at sunset. It relieves stress It relieves anxiety It can help you sleep It helps you figure out what’s really, truly bothering you It helps you let go of sh*t It can even lower yo

What is a Chakra?

You know how people are like, “Oh, my chakras are out of whack”, or “I need to realign my chakras”? Yeah, what are they on about? The Chopra Center describes it best as “wheels of energy throughout the body”. So this idea that different areas of the body relate to different energies in our lives is what we’re talking about when it comes to chakras. “These swirling wheels of energy correspond to massive nerve centers in the body. Each of the seven main chakras contains bundles
