Got a problem? Confused about a ritual? Not sure what the hell the difference is between an Esbat and a Sabbat? Need advice on a spell or just advice on life? Not sure where to turn or what to do? Well then…. Ask-A-Witch!
Welcome to Ask-A-Witch, a place on the web where your spiritual and magickal questions will be answered by practicing Witches. This blog is dedicated to answering your spiritual and magickal questions… not giving psychic readings/answers. We hope you enjoy the information provided and wish you all a very witchy day!
Hi again. You may remember me! I'm now practicing the way you told me about with the circle and I wanted to say thanks. I wanted to ask if witches are as you see in the movies, like flying with a broom and stuff? Also, do fantasy spells really work, such as turning into a vampire? Thanks.
No, no, and no. Unfortunately movie magick just isn't real, but it would be cool if it did!
I've always felt out of place around people. I tend to give too much of myself to them (positive energy), which leaves me tired and extremely sad while they always feel great and have lots of positive things happen to them. How do I control it?
It sounds like you are either an empath or are surrounded by psychic vampires. Read the answer from Nicholl from Woodbridge about empathy. I hope this helps!
Is there a spell or spiritual prayer that I can say to help both of my daughters to find true love? I have only found spells to enhance my life personally. How can I focus the positive energy on them?
Thank you for your help.
You seem like a wonderful mother trying to look out for her babies, which is a wonderful change from some of the questions I get around here! I'm sure you have pictures all around your home of your daughters, so each day stand in front of one of those pictures and think happy thoughts about them. Bring up positive memories, memories which help you to remember all of their great qualities. Then pray for them. It doesn't matter what religion you practice or what spiritual path you walk, what is important is asking the Divine to guide them, to help them make positive choices, and (most importantly) to help them feel loved and not alone.
This is a comment about the blue indigo troll post. This is very interesting - thanks for sharing. I saw a demon in my kitchen years ago and sometimes the walls crack in response to my thoughts and ideas. I am glad you can verify this realm. One question: how can we be sure they are real and not a creation of the government through HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) which can beam radio waves to our brains and create illusions? How do I join the team?
Oh, yo! I am not verifying your level of crazy. I never said demons were real. I merely suggested that the faerie realm, which is a spiritual realm, existed. Now honey, if you're cracking walls and ceilings with your thoughts, you better not have any people living in that house, because you're dangerous. The government can't even balance their own budget. What makes you think they can beam waves into your brain? Trust me, the government doesn't want its people crazy. As for joining our team, we appreciate the offer, but no. The Ask A Witch blog is a family thing that we do together here at 13 Magickal Moons.
What do you need to know to survive the next six weeks while Venus is in retrograde? Here is what what John, our resident astrologer, has to say about it. For more of his astrology and tarot posts, be sure to check out John's Metaphysical Meanderings blog.
You know the drill by now, folks. But just in case, here's a reminder of just how vital Venus is. OK, so let's start off with some background. Venus is a planet that is extremely important astrologically, although many of us don't really pay much attention to it unless it's Valentine's Day. Here are some of the things Venus rules:
Love and attraction
Beauty in form
Refinement of artistic tastes
Our romantic, poetic, and artistic selves
Taurus and Libra folks, this is your ruling planet, the lovely and charming Venus. Some of you may also know her as the Greek goddess Aphrodite. Most people think about love and attraction only when it comes to romance. I'm here to tell you that Venus also has a financial role. Why? Because if we are in business for ourselves, for example--like yours truly--our ability to make money and succeed depends on our ability to attract and retain clients. So Venus has an often overlooked role in our financial success. Also, if you're looking for work, Venus is an important planet for you to attract the attention of the right employer. Problems with Venus in your birth chart and indicate both love and money difficulties. So I hope I've been able to convince you that this lady is nothing to be trifled with. Venus goes into retrograde once every eighteen months, and before you open your mouth to complain, it's the LEAST amount of retrograde time of any of the planets in the solar system. You gotta cut the girl some slack; she's busy and needs a break! Anyway, when this planet starts to move "backward" in the sky, the focused is on unfinished business in our emotional and financial relationships. Here are some things to know about what you might experience, in both love and money. Love and social affairs--Overall, relationships tend to slow down. This is not a good time to:
Go on first dates
Have big parties
Change your hairstyle
Wear flamboyant clothing
Buy a new wardrobe
Re-decorate your home or business
Business--You may experience:
Problems with diplomacy or negotiations
Enter into a new partnership or significant business relationship
Relationships that are already having difficulty may feel additional pressure. Venus retrograde often forces us to face feelings that we have ignored in the past, and re-evaluate those friendships and romantic partnerships as these emotions re-surface. Since Venus is retrograde in Gemini, the focus will really be on words and understanding how people are communicating with you. Words really can hurt, especially those closest to us, so in this position, be extremely careful as you talk to your loved ones and make sure that you mean what you say and say what you mean. Venus starts officially in retrograde today. It goes through the rest of May and almost all the way through June; it will be over by June 27, but the effects could be felt through the end of July. Good luck weathering the storm, folks. Drop me a line if you have any Venus retrograde stories I can share! :)
Hi. :) Ok so, there is definately something uninviting in my home and I hear all kinds of things about how to protect yourself. What is the most effective, most used object or act that can help me protect me and my house? I hear about wearing things like iron pendents and cleansing with sage or lavender, but I fear these are just stereotypical things that people get from useless books and from watching movies and such.
Cleansing with sage via a smudge stick is usually the first thing I recommend to people. Start in the lower part of the home and work your way, room by room, to the upper level. Don't forget the attic if you have one!
I have been thinking about doing a love spell. I know it is wrong, but I love this guy and I strongly believe he has feelings for me too. I was wondering if there is a spell to give him the confidence to ask me out.
Not that you could perform for him. Why not give him a gift of citrine or carnelian? Both are confidence-building gemstones.
I had a dream a couple weeks back and it has been bothering me. I've tried finding the answer on the web, but none feel right. I was hoping that you might be able to at least let me know if I have something to be worried about or what it could mean.
I was in a dark room - it was a dark purple in color - I was standing in
front of a black mirror. In my head something was telling me if I broke the
mirror that they would give me everything I wanted and make life
easier. I stood there thinking about it then decided no. At that point I started to wake up when I felt a powerful force on my back trying to
push itself into my body. It was going to force me to break the black
mirror. I could feel the force, pressure, and weight on me. When I turned my head to yell for my wife, I could hardly scream.
Yes, you have something to be concerned about. Do you perform any protective measures on yourself daily? Do you have protective measures surrounding your home? If not, why not? For instructions on creating a protective barrier please read this post.
I got sent six envelopes with two colored feathers in each and wanted to ask what would the meaning be please.
It was either my pedophile father trying to marry me, as the sicko abused me my whole childhood and has been after me all through my adulthood; or my sister, who has mental problems also from the abuse. She tries to kill me because we are twins and she is trying to do what she calls her ultimate scam with getting life insurance by trying to kill me and make out she is me.
Either way, I want nothing to do with either. I wondered if it was some sick fantasy from my father or if my sister is trying spells on me as she likes to do to hurt me because she says there should have been only one of us and says it should've been her so has given me lists of pain in the past. I do not like having either in my life and try to stay clear of both. The envelopes were all together and addressed to me at my daughter's home since they do not know where I live. I was just wondering what the meaning may be. I kinda feel I may have to watch out, but this has made my mental disorder play up a bit. I do not want these bully spirit things beating me up again as they did for many years; I thought they were real, but I know it is in my brain. It has been ok for years, until lately it started again for a week. I would like to relax about the nasty ones and free myself of them. I do not like that either is thinking of me again.
I am so sorry for the pain and trauma you suffered at the hands of your father and twin sister. It breaks my heart and angers my soul to know such people exist. I would use a binding spell to prevent any further communications from them. Use a slightly modified version of the one I suggested to Carol from Stafford. As for the envelopes and feathers... burn them, trash them, just get rid of them!
I think my ex-girlfriend put a spell on me. She told me she tried it. I was supposed to be obsessed with her. I think it worked because at first I didn't really like her. Then all of a sudden, we had sex, and my emotions went up so high for her so fast. We are broken up now, and all I can do is dream about her. I see her full name everywhere, on TV, Facebook, outside in public. I can never sleep until 9 in the morning, thinking. That's all I can do is think. I try to stop and listen to the fan, then all of a sudden when I don't even notice, I'm thinking about her again. And strange things have been happening; I saw a car full on fire. I think this spell is dangerous. I honestly think about killing myself from thinking so much about her. I don't feel like myself at all, I feel tense and stuck. I've felt like this for so long. Is there a way to protect or put a reverse spell on it? I need some help please.
Your ex-girlfriend sounds like a piece of sh*t and I sincerely hope karma kicks her ass! Try using this banishing spell to get rid of whatever she may have done. All the materials required should be fairly easy to gather and cost very little. I can't help but feel like you're right and that her spell is dangerous... so do the banishing ASAP. Please send me a message to let me know how you're doing. Witch
I work at a hospice care center. I have seen a lot of deaths. Some were a happy passing with love and joy. But I have seen those going out fighting and kicking, and now I feel those who were not ready and/or mad and not right with their gods and goddesses are still there and may be doing wrong to the people working there, like being mad at each other. Those who are not able to fight off the bad spirits are becoming bad as well. What can I do to help the sprits move on or help this place out without a full blown spell there at the center, as they (my coworkers) don't know I am a witch. Help me please. My coworkers are nice people for the most part. Thank you and blessed be.
If you can't use a sage bundle in your workplace, I would recommend using an infusion made from sage leaves and lavender. Strain it, put it into a spray bottle, add essential oils, and nonchalantly spray down the offices. You work in a hospice. People die in a hospice. They go to the hospice knowing they're going to die. You don't need to help them move on. You just have to allow them time to get comfortable with being dead.
