Did you know that in NYC, without a lease, you are basically your landlord’s bitch? Neither did I. BUT HERE I AM, and here I intend to stay, and no landlord is getting my family out of our dirty, overpriced, falling apart apartment.

Photoset: Southern Witch.

Their quiet spot is an empty field and they dance with their feet bare. They sleep to the sounds of creaking rocking chairs and their witch bottles are made with Mason Jars. The red clay that stains their hands works better than cemetery dirt when they feel the need for protection. Their southern charm can draw you in but beware the crossing of a southern witch. Those coy little smiles hide rather sharp tongues and even sharper fangs.

So I’ve been having a rough time lately. Things are getting a bit better, but we were $300 short last week, and there is a real possibility that our electric will get turned off when the bill comes in. Being in Florida in Summer it easily hits the mid-90’s F and high heat makes me pain, fatigue, and brain fog way way worse. I’m trying to find a job, but it’s difficult.

To try and help I’m dropping the price of tarot readings. Normally I charge $5 on other sites and have Tumblr readings for $4. For the rest of this week and till next Sunday (8/3) they’ll be $3.

My witchy tumblr is upthewitchypunx. I have been running mail orders for over 15 years and studying witchcraft for over 8 years. Scrapcraft Witchery is a new project to share my witchy creations like Mercury Retrograde protection oil, candles, and charms. I also offer harvested seeds and herbs from my garden and other wildcrafted things. Eventually I’d like to add re-purposed thrift store finds for witches.

i feel like I’ve said this a million times but like. if u are a cishet witch/pagan and u feel the itch to use the term “coming out of the broom closet” to refer to telling ppl about yr practice, i would like to suggest that instead u Do Not

Now wait a minute, I understand that that can be offensive and hurtful if it’s being said in a playful manner or whatever, but in some cases, the reactions can be similar. Lets not forget that people can be just as biggoted for a person’s religion as for their sexuality/gender identity. It should not be said in gest, that I totally agree, but not everyone has the same background. Cishet people can come from an abusive home too, they can choose witchcraft/paganism as an escape, as a relief for all the bullshit too. Cishet folks can be bullied for what they believe in just as much as the rest of us. No, it’s not the same. But it can be similar, especially in the eyes of the one getting beaten for practising witchcraft. Just saying, man, sometimes the term can be accurate no matter your background or who you are.

"wait a minute" for real here
the point is that the term originated in the queer community
and if you’re not queer or MOGAI
then you don’t get to decide who can use it


especially when it comes to a religious group that is statistically less abused and stigmatized than queer people. and the fact that we cannot compare a religion (choice) with sexuality or gender (most often not a choice/is inherent to the person’s sense of self)

so shush with your patronizing tone there

This list was compiled by the California School of Herbal Studies (CSHS) in the 1980s by the six directors. Each made a list of what they believed would provide an herbalist with pretty much any and all the herbal actions and uplifting virtues required to provide good health care in a home and…

I am a Southern Witch; 

Vast as the fields and the skies of the country,

With just as much love and cruelty and fault and promise.

I sing spells like summertime lullabies, and let the balmy air carry my magic into the night.

I mix potions in mason jars, and enchant brunches with blessings.

My kitchen is an altar; my porch, a church.

Sweet tea is my sacrificial wine, and I dance to hymns under the warm Southern sun.

Here, we keep a crucifix above our doors for protection, and take long draws on our cigarettes for temporary reprieve.

We give good-luck charms to our neighbors, as horseshoes and wildflowers and baskets of muffins. 

We monogram sigils into quilts and tapestries and handkerchiefs.

Here, magic is in the crickets that begin their symphony as the sun sets.

It is is the traditions that each family holds sacred, and passes down like scripture.

It is in the stars and the sun and the dusty winds. 

I am a Southern Witch,

And my magic is as alive as my home.
