Anonymous asked: What are the magical properties of dark chocolate?
I’ve heard of chocolate being used in a number of love and sex spells. Many spell ingredients are used not just for the correspondences but for actual scientifically proven benefits. Dark chocolate is a source of mood-stabilizing compounds as well as antioxidants. So I think dark chocolate would go very well in spells for happiness, self-love or other kinds of love. It can be used as an offering to deities or spirits too. Just keep it away from animals, as theobromine is harmful to dogs as well as cats!
Virginity only matters if you’re lighting the black flame candle to summon witches.
Actually, When people talk about “blood of a virgin”, what’s actually meant is “virgin blood”, aka blood that’s never before been used in a ritual.
Therefore, virginity doesn’t matter for anything.
*noises of comprehension and frustration that I didn’t make that connection before*
The gods do not favor the easy way or those who take it.
Anonymous asked: I was wondering if you know any spells for luck (especially those to help in getting a job)? I just sent my resume to someone and would like to give myself a little boost of luck if I can. :) Thank you!
I’ve answered a similar question to this before, so I’m going to link you to that here! Also, here is a link to instructions on how to make a prosperity bottle, which could also help you out in the midst of a job search.
You could also try a simple prosperity/money spell. Light a green candle during a waxing moon and envision yourself getting the job and earning money. You can leave it at that, or go a little further and write some lines you could say aloud as the candle burns—whatever you feel most comfortable doing.
Hope this helps! And I hope everything goes well with your resume. :)
Anonymous asked: Who are good bloggers to follow or seek out for mentorship or guidance in hellenic polytheism?
I would not say that they are mentors, but they are are resourceful people who run blogs with a lot of information posted. I am sure that if you ask politely and humbly they will answer your questions. Remember, since people run these blogs there may be topics they do not want to discuss, if you accidentally bring one of those topics up: apologize, do not make excuses or spout reasons, just apologize and move on. Good luck.

Anonymous asked: I want to invite the fairies to my house, and at least try to show that I'm open for visits, and that, even though I can't see anything, only sense things, but I can communicate with them if they appear in my dreams, but, I have no idea of how to do that, and how to tell them that. Also, I am afraid that, because I live in a very suburban area, full of townehouses to every direction, and with little vegetation, that the fairies don't even bother coming around here. What do I do?
various methods can be taken in order to gain the “fairy sight” such things include, but not limited to
- special ritualistic actions
- being given the sight by a fairy
- getting the sight from traveling to Faery
- using an empowered item (like a holed stone
Now, you don’t need the sight in order to practice and communicate with fairies. You can use intermediaries and various mediums as ways of communication and interactions. Its 100% ok, and in fact I use mediums often when I have trouble with my fairy sight.
Now as to the more urbany area. Fairies you might encounter in that sort of area
- house fairies (like brownies or house maidens)
- flower fairies (chilling around gardens)
not all fairies are only going to be found in more wild and wooded areas, some do enjoy the more urban area, and in fact live closely to mortals.
However, it is worth noting that fairies reveal themselves and interact with those they desire.
Its a bit like fishing. Sometimes you’ll catch something right away, sometimes it takes a while, and sometimes you’ll never even get a bite. Its how it is
Being a witch means being able to look at completely random stuff you find and thinking, “I could use that,” all the time.
Anonymous asked: Hey, could my zodiac sign help me choose a path, for example becoming a fire witch and worshipping fire gods or becoming a storm witch? Or does your zodiac sign not matter? Blessings
Your zodiac sign can certainly play a part in your path if you want it to. If you feel very connected to the element associated with your zodiac sign and want to do magic primarily associated with the element of fire, you can. Astrology in general is a common practice among witches and it’s a very fascinating topic to research if you are interested in incorporating it into your practice.
Here’s the thing, anon: if it matters to you, then it matters. If you feel drawn to and want to explore that area of magic, then as long as you are being respectful, responsible, and safe (especially when handling fire, to use your example) there is nothing that says you can’t or that it doesn’t matter. Your practice is unique to you! :)
Thanks for your question and I hope this is helpful.
