Lori from Regina, Canada

Hello, if I used some crystals in a spell and they are now in a pouch, can I take them out to charge in the full moon with my other crystals or will that destroy the spell I did when I placed them in the pouch? Thank you kindly for your time!


Dear Lori,

Of course you can charge them with your other gemstones during the full moon. In fact, once they're done charging, hold them in your hands and focus on the spell you originally cast to add a little oomph.

Amy from Chambersburg, PA

Hello! I don't know if you remember me, but I wrote back in April of this year about being harassed by someone who thought I was a woman named Jo from England. I took your advice (filling a freezer bag halfway with water and adding a piece of paper with their name - actually, I put their twitter handle(s) on the paper and then threw the bag in the freezer.) I just wanted to let you know that it worked! I haven't heard from the person since April of this year! Thank you so much for your advice.


Dear Amy,

I'm so happy to hear that you're being left alone!!! Great job taking control of the situation!

Jaime from London, UK

Hello, I was wondering if you would be able to give me a werewolf spell?


Dear Jaime,

Nope... fresh out of werewolf spells.

Mari from Niles, IL

My parents are deceased, and most of the time they come in my dreams. Is this a good thing? What stones are good to have in the house to protect my family?


Dear Mari,

I'm sorry for the loss of your parents.

It's not uncommon for those who have passed on to visit their loved ones in their dreams.

As for protecting your home, please read my response to Brittney from Las Vegas for some helpful information.

Gavin from Hamilton, Ontario

Can a man walk through a portal and come back? A cat portal. And why does a cat appear to me holding a tattered book after such a journey? Is there a spell to change a person from one to another?


Dear Gavin,

W. T. F. Cat portal? Change into another person?

Melanie from Alexandria, VA

Hey, so I am really worried lately about self-sabotaging during a current endeavor. I am so worried that I am going to make the wrong choice that I keep finding myself being swallowed by fear. I have done numerous rituals to help with that, but somehow still feel at moments that the fear is going to swallow me. I recently was wearing a rose quartz to help with that, but it shattered. Is there something stronger that can help with this?


Dear Melanie,

Try wearing, or keeping on your person, bloodstone (to absorb your negativity), blue lace agate (to de-stress your energy), and citrine (to give you confidence and focus).

When you find yourself becoming overwhelmed or anxious, try taking a few deep breaths (in through the nose and out through the mouth) while holding the above gemstones in your hands.

Good luck, honey!

Julia from Staten Island, NY

I was doing a black magic spell, and during the preparation of the candle and upon opening one of the oil bottles, I found myself becoming unable to keep my eyes open, the oil was so powerful. I went to the sink and rinsed them, but when I entered the room again, they started tearing again. Once I finished the prep on the black candle and lit it, my eyes did not bother me anymore. The witch who gave me the spell said this was a good sign that there was a lot of power in the room when I was preparing it and it is sure to work. What do you think? It WAS powerful, by the way.


Dear Julia,

I'm sure it was, but I think you missed the message. Sounds to me like someone was trying to stop you from doing something that will surely cause a karmic backlash.

Good luck.

Tina from United States

Do you know of any spells to allow me to control ice, water, or fire? Any of them would be fine. Thank you. :)


Dear Tina,

LOL... no.

Madison from Mesa, AZ

Hi! I'd love to become an element master or whatever you can call it. I would really like to train for it, but I would like to know how to find what element I am. Please reply soon! Thanks!


Dear Madison,


There is really no "element master," unless you are Ang from the Last Avatar. There is, however, The Way of Four: Create Elemental Balance in Your Life by Deborah Lipp, which can help to better understand and work with the elements.

Sarah from Springfield, VA

I have been struggling with my religious identity for a long time now because I hold particular beliefs of multiple religions. I associate myself closely with Buddhism and Wicca (I simply say I am Pagan).

However, I was wondering... While Buddhism teaches that one can identify as Buddhist and still practice other religions, can I still call myself a witch if I follow other religions as well? Can I call myself a witch if I hold particular beliefs of Wicca, but not all of them?


Dear Sarah,

Absolutely, yes!

Kyle from Georgia

Sorry for an oddly specific question, but do you know of another world or realm that is monarchy based and has some kind of river running through one of the kingdoms? It isn't just some river; it is really important for some reason. The "beings" are completely human-like, but the citizens are "light" like light magic. The monarchy is the same species, but they are just different and dark-based (STILL good though - I don't mean to imply they are evil). I am not saying this is a real place. It could just be a story, or maybe it's some kind of fairy place. Any reply, even if it's "this is dumb" would be appreciated. I am not sure if you personally believe in other humanoid creatures or energy beings (fairies, gods and such) or not.


Dear Kyle,

Of course I believe in the fae and other magickal and mythical creatures as well. I do believe we're able to feel their energy on our plane of existence.

The humanoid monarchy you're talking about is connected with fae. The Seelie is the light court and the Unseelie is the dark court. Please read yesterday's response to Arthur from North Carolina for some recommendations of great books about the fae.

Arthur from North Carolina

Hello, I am trying to find information on the fae realm or world, whatever the correct term is. More specifically, I'd like to know the history of the place. Do they have kings or queens? Do they have a history much like you can read the history of our world from a history book? Is there any way you can refer me to a book or place I can look? Thank you for any help you can supply.


Dear Arthur,

I recommend these books by Ted Andrews and Edain McCoy for some great information on the fae:

Enchantments of the Faerie Realm
by Ted Andrews
A Witch's Guide to Faery Folk
by Edain McCoy

Jasmine from South Africa

Hello, if it is ok with you, I would like to ask a few questions.

My first one is in regards to Loki, the Norse god of mischief. How may I summon him to appear in my presence?

My second question is in regards to Jokul Frosti, more commonly known as Jack Frost. How may I summon him?

My third question is in regards to Bifrost. In mythology, it is said Bifrost is the rainbow bridge guarded by the Norse god Hemidall, that connects Asgard to Midgard. However, I have no idea where its location is, nor if it is even in a specific place. Is there a way to use it, or any other way for a Midgardian to go to Asgard?

Lastly, this is a question about a dream. My cousin had a dream where she and I were sitting on her mother's bed watching television side by side whilst a man with grey hands stroked our hair. Only his hands and wrists were visible, but he wore a black cloak because he had sleeves which were black.

I know it is a lot to ask and I do not want to come across as greedy or anything at all. The urgency of the question is somewhat severe because I think I am being haunted by a demon.

Thank you so much. Blessings and thanks.


Dear Jasmine,

Why would you want to invoke Loki, the god of chaos and mischief, to help protect against a demon? Nothing good will happen there. We don't summon gods. They don't just stick around waiting for us to summon them like they're our servants. 

The bridge, Bifrost, is not available to us mere humans. 

And I don't know what you're talking about with that dream. Sometimes a dream is just a dream.
