I feel like a child when I stand here. As if I’m five years old again and my parents have taken me to there friends house. It’s simple, childish, standing here with my mouth wide open, gaping at the new and mysterious. Every one else is baffled at my awe, they don’t see it. They can’t see the never ending wonder there is surrounding them. Every time you see something new it should be in wonder. You should feel a lump in your throat, a tingle in fingertips and the sensation of falling.

Wolftea, if you don’t mind me asking, what part is that in the last picture, hanging up on the wall right in the centre? To the right of the feathers. Thanks!

Black wolves do not occur naturally. A 2008 study at Stanford University found that the mutation responsible for black fur occurs only in dogs, so black wolves are the result of gray wolves breeding back with domestic canines. The mutation is a dominant trait, like dark hair in humans, and is passed down to the majority of offspring. It is not entirely clear what benefit black fur has for the animals; they do not seem to be more successful hunters, but do show a marked improvement in immunity to certain infections.
Makes sense for a few black wolves I know: just common dogs.
Unless indicated otherwise, use 1/4 cup Epsom salt and 1/4 cup sea salt as the base. Mix these salts together and then add the oils.

“My mother boils seawater. It sits all afternoon simmering on the stovetop, almost two gallons in a big soup pot. The windows steam up and the house smells like a storm. In the evening, a crust of salt is all that’s left at the bottom of the pot. My mother scrapes it out with a spoon. We each lick a fingertip and dip them in the salt and it’s softer than you’d think, less like sand and more like snow. We lay our fingertips on our tongues, right in the middle. It tastes like salt but like something else, too—wide, and dark. It tastes like drowning, or like falling asleep on the shore and only waking up when the tide has come up to your feet and you wonder if you’d gone on sleeping, would you have sunk?”

So getting closer and closer to finishing my witches bottle. Only a handful of things I need to complete it. This is my variation of a Cornish practice where tangled up yard will trapped the negative, trap the baneful. Instead of just balled up thread, I tangled up the thread around some thorns from a rose bush on the side of my yard.
Only a few things left so I’m excited to getting it finished. Just need my poisons, some wine, and to create a my inscription enchantment for the inside.
Fill a jar with the following:
- Cinnamon (dream magic)
- Nutmeg (good luck)
- Allspice (healing)
- Ginger (lunar magic)
- Basil (protection)
- Fennel seeds (spirtual healing)
- Garlic (spiritual purification)
- Marjoram (protection)
- Sage (spiritual purification)
- Cloves (protection)
- Mustard seed (protection)
Before you do divination of any kind, inhale the scent deeply and shake the jar gently.

Anonymous said: Which deities are associated with felines? If you haven't answered this one already.
oddly enough, no one’s ever asked me about deities associated with cats/felines! there are many of them, here is a list of some:
- the Norse goddess Freya (Freyja) is associated with cats - they are sacred to her and her chariot was drawn by two large gray cats
- the Egyptian goddess Bast (Bastet) is assocated with cats, depicted with the head of a lioness, took the form of a lion
- ancient Greeks associated Bast with Artemis, and called her Ailuros (a lunar goddess)
- the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet is also depicted with the head of a lioness
- Mafdet, another Egyptian goddess, depicted with the head of a cat, depicted as a feline, associated with domesticated cats (it’s believed her cult eventually transitioned to worshiping Bast)
- Artemis (lions and leopard specifically)
- Hera (Greek, lions)
- Athena (Greek, tigers and lions)
- Demeter (Greek, lions and domesticated cats)
- Durga (Hindu) she rides a tiger
- Aradia, Italian goddesses who takes the form of a cat
- Maahes (Mihos, Mios, Mahes), Egyptian lion-headed god of war
- the leopard is sacred to the Greek god Dionysus
- while not deities, St. Francis (a cat saved him from being overwhelmed by rodents), St. Jerome St. Gregory (the only thing he owned was a cat) were all very fond of cats and are often depictec with cats
