Witchcraft Wednesday: A Spell For Retrograde Season

Greetings, witches and friends! I know, I’ve been a little lax in the publishing department, but I know you understand that things are a little hectic right now. I feel like it’s fairly typical of me to have massive deadlines during a global pandemic AND retrograde season. F*CK THAT! But them’s the breaks. Anyway, retrograde season is here to f*ck with us, and I’m here to offer you an easy spell to help you deal with that. Brilliant, right? Why is Retrograde Season a Nightmar

Witchcraft Wednesday: Cleansed Witches

Greetings, witches and friends. It’s Wednesday. We’re tired. There’s a reason humpday is one of the most despised days in existence. It’s super far from the weekend (even though it’s only 2 days) and, let’s be honest, what even is a weekend anymore? Photo by jasper benning on Unsplash Anyway, it is my understanding, based on extensive research of myself and maybe 3 other people, that we’re feeling a bit stagnant. We’re feeling the lockdown vibes, we’re feeling the buildup of

Witchcraft Wednesday: Magical Oils (Protection Oil Recipe)

Happy Wednesday, witches and friends! It’s our favourite day of the week, when we talk about magic-making, spell-crafting and all that good sh*t. A couple of weeks ago, I showed you how to make a magical natural cleaning spray at home, and that was cute and practical and smelled lush. This week, however, I want to delve a little into the realms of magic/kal oils – what they are, and what to do with them (and what not to do with them). What is a Magical Oil? Photo by Chelsea s

Witchcraft Wednesday: Easy Homemade Magical Multi-Purpose Cleaner

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I’m back, with apologies for the delay. It’s been a bit busy / lockdown-y over here and, guess what? It’s okay not to be okay sometimes! Personally, I felt a bit overwhelmed with my PhD, teaching (via the Internet) and charity work, and unfortunately this little haven of mine suffered. But no more! So. It’s literally no secret that I don’t like cleaning. I don’t like it, I’m not good at it, and sometimes I’m annoyed that it even exists. We live in a

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

Boss Witch Fashion Friday: Lockdown Edition

HAPPY FRIDAY, friends! We made it through another week. If you weren’t on my email list yesterday (link below, sign up!) you might not know that I announced that I will soon be releasing the One Boss Witchcast (podcast) to give back to the library of podcasts that I am tearing through myself at the moment. It’s a funny thing being on lockdown/isolation/shielding/stay in place. For me, I know that when I’m working a lot, I just long for more than 36 hours at home to potter and

Witchcraft Wednesday: Blessing Spell for Household Peace, Health and Calm.

Okay, everyone, it’s been sh*tshow lately, am I right? We’re battling COVID-19, our jobs are thrown into uncertainty, we’re told not to leave our houses (except to exercise, according to our Prime Minister in the UK), and there is a general dark cloud of fear hanging over us. So I wanted to jump back onto the bandwagon. Life is scary right now, but I want to show up for you, because the InstaCoven is real, and we are all real people behind our Avatars (witches are people, too

Monday Moonday: The 2020 Full Worm Supermoon in Virgo

Greetings, witches and pals! It’s been a minute. I’ve been knocked down with a bug (which was not the Covid-19, thanks for asking). Anyway, today, Monday 9th March, brings us both a full moon AND a Supermoon, in Virgo, AND we’re still in MRx, AND Friday is the 13th. Let’s talk about all this f*ckery. The Supermoon Image by Enrique Meseguer from Pixabay What exactly is a ‘Supermoon’? Well, it basically means that the moon is essentially closer to Earth, which means it looks bi

Witchcraft Wednesday: What’s the Deal With Magic Wands?

Happy Witchcraft Wednesday, witches and friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful week thus far. For myself, I am recovering well from surgery (thank you for your well-wishes) and I am excited to get back into the swing of regular blog posts. As tradition has it, on Wednesday we do Witching. Today, instead of a spell, I wanted to talk about some tools of the trade – more specifically, the magic wand. What is a Wand? A wand is a long, thin and pointed object which we use in th

Witchcraft Wednesday: A Valentines Self-Love Ritual

Greetings, witches and friends! It’s coming up to that time of the year when we either feel warm and squishy or dark and stormy. Or completely ambivalent. Anyway. It’s coming up to Valentines Day. The grim truth about Valentines Day “Lupercalia” by Andrea Camassei (Museo del Prado) Okay, everyone, let’s get real. Valentines Day comes from a pretty bloody background. Basically, the name (Valentine) comes from two dudes executed by the Roman emperor Claudius on the same day (Fe

Spirituality, Fibroids and Facing Our Mortality (Part 1)

Greetings, witches! Slight trigger warning here: discussion of mortality, of illness, of surgery and some depressing sh*t. Maybe skip this one if you’re not feeling it today. Blessings! As many of you will know, because I’ve mentioned it quite a lot, I had a surgery 2 weeks ago today. My surgery was classed as ‘elective’, but I wouldn’t really consider it that. It wasn’t cosmetic. I was in a lot of pain and discomfort, and for the past year or so, my life was severely impacte

Imbolc for the Modern Witch

This post originally appeared on Spirit Nest, where it was a guest post. Reposted with permission. Image by Spirit Nest. On February 1st, we move into one of the sweetest, purest Sabbats of the Witch’s calendar. Imbolc celebrates the near-end of the long Winter, bringing us towards the warmer part of the year, and celebrating the sprouting of new life from the Earth. The Wiccan tradition celebrates this as the strengthening of the Sun God, as he comes into his adulthood, and

Join the Imbolc Candle Ritual!

Got no time to cast your spells? Live in a shared house where you can’t exactly set up an altar? Or maybe you’re in the broom closet. Join in the Imbolc fun with a dedicated candle in my personal group ceremony, focusing on manifestation, love attraction, self love and new life. All you have to do to take part is: Make a contribution of $3 (US) via Paypal with your full name (or whichever name you’d like me to think of you by), and a description of that which you would like t

OBW x CostumierSaurus: Blindfold Spell for Eye-Opening

Costumier-Saurus Welcome to a new week, Witches! I am super, super, super excited to bring you this spell. I was talking with my friend, CostumierSaurus, about blindfolds, and what they represent. To me, being blinded is significant when there is something in our lives that is hidden, that we’re not seeing. Sometimes this could be someone close to us hiding something from us, or when there’s something that just doesn’t add up, and we’re looking for truth which is hiding behin

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

Witchcraft Wednesday: Witchcraft on the Go

It can be tough to be a witch when you have to work away. Or maybe you visit family a lot, or perhaps you’re a traveling brooms salesperson. I don’t know you. For me, I have to work away sometimes. And often I’m gone for between one and five days, which means I’m packing light. I only have a carry-on, and that means that I cannot, CANNOT bring my entire altar and witch kit with me. Sadly. So how do we maintain our practice when we’re on the move? If you pop over to Instagram,

2020 Vision

A small child wearing a knitted hat sits on a bed. A Christmas tree in the background, and presents beside them wrapped in brown paper. Greetings, Boss Witches! And I hope you all had a wonderful festive season, whether you were celebrating Yule, Hanukkah, Christmas, Saturnalia…or anything else. 2019 for me was a buster. It was a hard no from me. I had a f*cker of a time with my health starting last January, and I’m just now this month getting treatment for that (although I m

Witchcraft Wednesday: What’s the Deal with Poppets?

Welcome to Wednesday, Witches! Today I am going to address the subject of poppets, otherwise known as dollies, pippies, moppets and mommets. A woman wearing a hat holds a carved wooden doll. I know that for a long time when I was young, I personally thought poppets were basically the Western version of the “Voodoo Doll”. In pop culture, there is this idea of the Doll as a weapon of torture, and, yes, poppets sure are sometimes used to inflict magic upon someone. However, the

Boss Witch Fashion Friday: The Historically Inaccurate but Deathly Fabulous Costumery of “Sale

Greetings, Boss Witches! We made it through another week. A week of working, of cooking meals (ew), of trying to keep our sh*t together. I think we all did great! So I have been rewarding myself by watching Salem on Netflix. I hadn’t got into this show yet, which is weird, but I do think it was a slow starter that got great. Is it cerebral? NO. Is it wildly entertaining and full of blood and guts and spells? YES. What more do you want? Elise Eberle as Mercy Lewis in Salem wit

Witchcraft Wednesday: The Easiest Ever Freezer Spell

Howdy! It’s Witchcraft Wednesday and again, I wanted to offer up a spell that anybody with access to some basic white goods can do. Alternatively, it’s winter, so I imagine you could also try chucking this into a pile of snow. Let’s get into the festive spirit by getting rid of some of the bad energy coming our way. This Freeze-Out Spell is for when someone just won’t stop f*cking with your life. Maybe it’s an ex who won’t get the message, or a colleague who is talking sh*t a
