Witchcraft is not escapist fantasy. It is not all pretty crystals and trailing cloaks and falling leaves in fern-strewn forests. It is a tool for coping with life, amongst many other skills and crafts we learn. And if you’re using that tool as wallpaper for reality, so you don’t have to look at the things you find ugly, disagreeable, or difficult - you’re doing it wrong.
Those ugly, disagreeable things will eat you alive, even if you try to ignore or disbelieve in them. I’m not saying you can’t like pretty things or make your Craft attractive. But it can’t be at the expense of functioning in the real world. A pretty knife that’s so dull it can’t cut is useless.
Helpful Hints for Witches #5
If you’re working outside, please try to be respectful and kind to the environment.
Don’t leave plastic, synthetic fabric, and other non-biodegradable garbage around as offerings or otherwise. Clean up your workspace when you’re done.
If leaving food offerings, make sure they aren’t toxic to any wildlife that may consume it.
If you’d use salt indoors, consider using birdseed, sand, or flower petals outdoors. Salt will kill plant life.
Be thoughtful and aware of your actions!
