Transfer text from tissue paper to a candle using wax paper and your hair dryer. You can print something too by taping the tissue to some card stock before sending through your printer. Use color tissue for color candles. You get the idea. Endless possibilities!
Good tutorial here: http://www.theshabbycreekcottage.com/2011/10/day-5-easy-print-candles.html(Note: candle will drip more than usual, so use a safety plate, or something, underneath the holder.)
I needed to know this.
I suddenly get productive when I have two hours to kill. Yay me.
Wrote this at school this morning
Don’t mind me, just crying my eyes out with god feels from when I was more polytheist.
Spell to not give a shit:
Light a candle, whisper your problem to it, then say:
“I do not give a shit.
You can’t make me give a shit.
My last fuck has flown.”
And blow out the candle, symbolizing you blowing out the shit you were supposed to give.
This spell with all my heart.
If you consider yourself a witch, or practice anything that could be considered witchcraft, please reblog this. I want to see how many witches there are because I feel alone in this. And therefore a little weird…
This spread doesn’t have a name yet, but it’s one I use in order to get a good idea of where I stand/where things are going when I begin to work with a new deity, or to check in with one I’m already familiar with.
Card 01 - Who is this deity? You can basically look at this card as doing two things. The first thing is verification, to make sure you know which deity you’re dealing with. I’m especially in love with this position because I have a problem of asking after a particular deity and then getting a different one answering me when I do this spread.
The second part comes into play in figuring out which aspect of a deity you’re dealing with, if it comes to that. I have noticed that a lot of the deities I work with will present a COMPLETELY different side of themselves to others. It’s nice to know who you’re getting.
Card 02 - What will our relationship be like? This card kind of colours how I interpret the other cards in the reading. A friendly, easy going relationship will cause me to look at the cards differently than a distant, business-like relationship. But it also serves the obvious purpose of warning you of what you’re getting into.
Card 03 - What do they want from me? If you’re picturing me asking this question in a sort of desperate and hopeless way then you are correct XD;; But yeah, knowing what’s expected or required of you is always a handy thing to check.
Card 04 - How can I best make this happen? It’s kind of difficult to determine how to actually go about what you need to do, that thing and that’s what this card is for.
The first time I did this reading, it was hijacked by another deity who wanted to go out of their way to make sure I knew things were over between us — and the card I got in position #3 was the Two of Swords and the card I got here was the Ten of Swords. I needed to let go and acknowledge that our goals are too different to really reconcile with each other. And in my case, to do that, I needed to realize that the circumstances had changed irrevocably. (Ten of Swords, for me, is not only a death more final than Death, it’s an end to all pretenses and a revelation of total Truth.)
Card 05 - What may get in my way? Because when is anything ever easy, right?
To continue on my last example, what was getting in my way of moving on was my deeply rooted fear of change, of having to rebuild, and an unwillingness to dismantle what was no longer working so that I could build something better, and a fear that if things went wrong, I would have no safe space to turn to.
Card 06 - Ultimate outcome of the relationship. Straightforward enough, I think.
I really like the way this spread’s positions interact with each other. Card 3 (what’s expected of you) and Card 4 (how to best do that) are diagonal from each other, and I’ve personally gotten a lot of insight from having card 5 directly in-between what your relationship will be like and what you’re going to be doing in that relationship. When laid out, the cards kind of go back and forth between your perspective and the deity’s, so it’s kind of like a conversation in that way.
How to form a connection to your Mana (Lands explained)
So you want to use the MTG brand of spell-casting but you haven’t quite figured out how to “connect” to a particular color of Mana. Well I’m here to ease your mind a bit, because connection to Mana is as easy as meditating.
First and foremost, I want you to choose a color you want to connect to. Did you do that? Good job, you just completed step one.
Okay now I want you to think about that color and what it represents. Think about its values, its philosophies, how it goes about accomplishing its goals. Does it prefer logic over impulse? Order over chaos? Self over others? Think through all of these things.
Now, while keeping the color’s philosophies in mind, feel yourself align with the color. Instead of imagining the color valuing order, see yourself valuing order. Visualize yourself creating order, becoming order. What that color wants, you want. You are now a representative of that Mana.
Each Mana type is generated by various Lands. To tap into this power, go out into the world and find wellsprings of Mana.
For White Mana, look for plains, places where the sky is vast and clear. Go to churches and temples. Soak in the sun and feel the brightness of the day.
For Blue Mana, visit islands and bodies of water. Stand in streams and lakes, go outside in a rain shower, embrace a thunder storm. Lose yourself in the ocean.
For Black Mana, head to the swamp, to a graveyard. Look for decay and desolation. Travel at night, in secret, away from prying eyes, and feel the chill of the dark run down your spine.
For Red Mana, go hiking up a mountain. Touch solid rock, and feel sand through your fingers. Walk in the desert, light a fire, or breathe in the heat of the earth’s molten core.
For Green Mana, the forest is your home. Watch the plants and animals, feel the connection they have with one another. Befriend a tree, plant a garden. Nature is your ally and the source of your strength.
When it comes time to cast your spell, draw on the connections that you form. Tap your Lands, energize yourself, and let your power flow. That Mana is at your fingertips, and it is yours to use.

Storm Sorceress’ A Light in the Storm
A Light in the Storm is meant to be used to aid in the healing of seasonal depression. Other uses may including aiding in the healing of sadness, grief, and anxiety.
- Large clear glass vase
- Small clear glass vase to fit inside of the larger one
- Local dirt, sand, or pebbles
- Storm, rain, or source water
- Tealight or votive candle
- Fill the bottom of the smaller vase with dirt, sand, or pebbles, as a weighted base, and place a small candle on top of that. If you want it completely weighted down, you’ll want pebbles. If you’d like it to float, just add dirt or sand.
- Place the small vase inside the large vase, and begin filling the large vase with water. Be careful not to get any water into the small vase.
- Set both vases on a flat surface, and light the candle inside of the small vase, as pictured above.
- Allow to burn for as long as needed, or until the candle burns itself out.
- Repeat as needed.
