September 2017 Magickal Link Roundup

First of all, hello everyone! It’s been a long hiatus (almost 3 months!) and I’m not promising to be 100% back just yet. I’ve had a lot going on – which is such a generic thing to say – but more specifically I am dealing with health issues, so self-care has become my #1 priority without exception. My #2 magickal priority is my own coven, and then the blog here is #3. Don’t expect super long posts, but I will try to stop by more often again.

This is a new idea, so who knows if it will stick, but throughout the month I’m always finding great witchy writing around the web that I collect with the hope that I’ll add the best parts of them to my grimoire. I thought it would be fun and maybe even helpful to post them here. If you have a favorite witchy post/blog/product to share, please feel free to post it in the comments.

~ September 2017 Magickal Link Roundup ~

“Autumn Leaf Spirit Sculpture” by Mujuworld – This beautiful little sculpture would be a great addition to Mabon altars, and the artists were bold enough to wish everyone a happy Mabon on the equinox. Any opportunity to support a fellow pagan artists is something I’m always for.

“Becoming Dangerous: A Book About Ritual and Resistance” by Katie West – The link here takes you to West’s Kickstarter campaign, which is for a book of personal essays on ritual by marginalized people. The reference to emoji spells makes me cringe a little, but this book is intriguing and is definitely worth a share.

“Crystal Horoscopes: Healing Gemstones for Virgo Season” on Astro Style – While Astro Style can be fluffy and has only started writing about witchcraft now that it’s popular, their posts can be helpful. This post is a good, basic overview of how to use peridot and moss agate during a Virgo cycle.

Cosmic Concerns: September 2017

For all the cosmic witches out there, or just witches and pagans who are interested in what’s going on in the cosmos, here is a list of September 2017’s important astrological events. All times listed are in EST (Eastern Standard) and should be adjusted for your own time zone. Please note that this list is not even close to being exhaustive, but compiled by me to list events that would be of magickal importance. This information is great to copy into your Book of Shadows if you maintain one; if you are looking for something more extensive my guide to lunar trackers is on the site here. I hope that you find it helpful, blessed be!
