The Zodiac Signs As Witches & Their Magickal Practice

What does your zodiac sign have to say about your witchy style and magickal practice?! 

*Please know that I am not into labeling your practice or believe that your witchcraft has to fall into one particular category. I do however, think that this is a fun blog post to see how your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs can impact your magickal workings and the way you work your witchy woo! 

levitation-1031061__480.jpg

 

Aries  

May have a tendency to work with fire or perform candle magick. Short spells are best as Aries may not have the attention span or energy to complete a working that may take several weeks or months. It is impulsive and headstrong magick, with not a lot of planning or practice involved. Their magick may focus on who they wish to become and may center around identity, independence, and soul purpose. There may also be an emphasis on their physical health and stamina as well. Loves protective, defensive, and even vengeful magick. Don’t get on this witches bad side! Remember, Ares is the God of War. 

 

mountain-pose-815291_1280.jpg

Taurus

Loves to work with earth and the elements - especially out in nature. The Green Witch. Drawn to shamanism and works with the birds, the grass, the flowers, the trees, the fae, an array of animals, etc. Fond of working with the ancestors, bones, stones, feathers, and furs in their practice. Works their magick in the kitchen with food as well as love magick and space clearing. Fond of any type of working to help conserve energy and long term goals although impatient with results.  

 

Gemini

Loves affirmations, writing and reciting spells, and creating sigils. Has lots of magickal ideas, but may not put many of them into practice. May incorporate pop culture into their practice or blog about it on social media. Loves to communicate with deity, angels, and other high vibe beings. May be fond of burning petitions and allowing the smoke to carry their petitions to the Universe. Gemini also loves to read about the practice itself and may even enjoy doing witchy work with their BFF. 

 

Cancer

The empathic healer. Loves to work with the moon and goddess energy. May be particularly good at fertility magick. Works on a level of emotional healing as well as with the inner child, the mother wound, and abandonment issues. Many prefer to do their workings in private or in the comfort of their own home. Cancerian magick is all about the environment it is worked in - feeling comfortable and safe in the space is key. As a water sign (and a crab), they may also be quite fond of ocean magick. 

 

Leo

What can I say other than big, bold, loud, colorful magick?! The rockstar bruja who takes pride in their magick and may see it deeply as a part of their identity. They aren't afraid to show off their witchy charm and looks. They are their magick. Their magick revolves around loyalty, beauty, and matters of the heart thus they may do spells for family and close friends. May be a big fan of glamour magick and love spells. They also may enjoy working with the Sun and for increased confidence, power, and success. 

 

broom travel-1195737__480.jpg

Virgo

This orderly and organized witch takes a holistic and regimented approach to magick. This witches Book of Shadows is in tip-top shape. All herbs and tools are labeled and regularly cleansed. Virgo likes purification magick, working with light energy, and bringing energy back into divine order and alignment. Virgo may also like to work with animals and herbs in their practice. May be fond of numerology and takes a more scientific approach in their practice. 

 

Libra

May enjoy working with the energetic body, the aura, and the chakras. Very concerned with energy and using their magick in decision making or weighing options. May have a hard time in determining if their intentions are from their heart or their head. Focuses on bringing harmony, balance, and the unification of energy. Libra may also work magick for injustices done to others or for the enforcement of laws, morals, and values. Love, romance, partnership, and relationship magick are extremely important to them as well. They may enjoy working with a partner quite a bit. 

 

zodiac signs fairy-1887093_1280.jpg

Scorpio

Working with the dead, ancestral work, divination, psychic ability - if it goes there, Scorpio is into it. Sex, lust, passion, and blood magick - keep it hot and keep it coming. Scorpio is into the ancient side of magick that isn't always talked about. They also work with the shadow and to help heal deep trauma. Scorpio is also fond of protective, defensive, and yes, even vengeful magick. Can obsess over their work, but loves the commitment and challenge of magick. Likes to keep the inner workings of their practice secret. 

 

Sagittarius

They enjoy the magick of possibility. Loves to learn the magickal wisdom of other cultures to have a deeper understanding of witchcraft and magick as a whole. May work magick for travel, expansion, and advancement opportunities. Brings back exotic items and art from their travels to incorporate into their practice. Loves to do ritual outside and in different places. Likes to tap into higher consciousness and wisdom to add new inspiration to their practice.  

 

Capricorn

Can you say money magick? Capricorn loves to work their magick on their business, self improvement, and money making potential. I can also see Capricorn working with sigils a bit. Capricorn uses magick to increase potential and for steady fuel to fire the work they’re already doing. Capricorn is very down to earth, particular, and practical in their magick and take their practice extremely seriously. May also be into a few darker aspects that they don't care to share with others.

 

girl-1725255__480.jpg

Aquarius

This Starseed may be fond of working with light-beings and star-beings. Works their magick to create tolerance, fight injustices, and to discover new innovative ways to benefit their community and the world at large. They are likely to somehow incorporate technology or the internet into their practice. Their work may be very concerned with future goals and aspirations. May like to work in a coven or with a group of other practitioners. They may also be a fan of chaos magick or walk a more eclectic path. Loves to visualize in their manifesting process. 

 

Pisces

Works magick to be more in the flow and bring a deeper sense of peace and happiness to themselves and others. Their work is about compassion, understanding, and healing. They are the most likely to be Hedgewitches performing dream work such as astral traveling, past life work, and working on the other energetic planes. As an escapist, Pisces may feel the need to use substances like marijuana, mugwort (an herb), ayahuasca, or peyote to help them achieve different levels of consciousness (even though it’s not necessary). They may enjoy trance work as well and visualization could be of benefit in their work as they are great dreamers. Pisces (the fish) is also likely to be fond of ocean magick.

Aries Winter 2017.JPG

 

Aries 

Be mindful of how easily you allow your feathers to be ruffled Aries. This Winter may be challenging for you in terms of conflict with others. Be aware of personal boundaries. You may even encounter some obstacles in your current endeavors. Try to take it easy and don't sweat the small stuff. Frustration just binds the energy even tighter.

 

 

Tarurs Winter 2017.JPG

 

Taurus

Things are beginning to shift for you this season Taurus. New ways of income may enter as old means fall away. Be open to change as transformation is happening. As one door closes, another one opens. Try not to be intimidated by change. Instead, learn to embrace it so that the transition is easier.

 

 

 

Gemini Winter 2017.JPG

 

Gemini

Long term partnerships, whether they be business, familial, or romantic, are at the forefront for you this Winter. Cherish these relationships. Is there any clean up required? Does the air need to be cleared with a situation or partner. How can you work together to create a stronger union?

 

 

 

Cancer Winter 2017.JPG

 

Cancer

You may feel like you are trying to reinvent the wheel this season. How can you make your skills even better? You are being encouraged to rethink the way you are going about things. Perhaps there is a point you've been trying to get across that hasn't been communicated clearly enough. Go back to the drawing board, but take your skill set with you.

 

 

Leo Winter 2017.JPG

 

Leo

You know, but are you listening? Are you doing? Are you working with the wisdom you've been given or do your actions say otherwise? What do you know now that you didn't before and how can this knowledge aid you this Winter? Open your crown chakra and let the knowledge flow. Think outside of the box!

 

 

 

Virgo Winter 2017.JPG

 

Virgo

Your spider senses should be tingling this Winter. You are extremely open and sensitive to energy at this time. What messages are you picking up from the world around you? Work with your spirituality, intuition, and develop your psychic ability this season.

 

 

 

Libra Winter 2017.JPG

 

Libra

Are you expressing your thoughts? How are you communicating with others this season and are you doing so effectively? Thoughts also carry vibration. What are you communicating to yourself and the Universe not only with your words, but also with your mind? Think kind and loving thoughts. 

 

 

 

Scorpio Winter 2017.JPG

 

Scorpio

Stability is at the foreground for you Scorpio which is great news if you have been feeling off kilter as of late. This Winter will finally give you solid ground to stand on so you can continue to plod diligently towards your goals. The structure is there so raise your sky scraper! Now is the time to build on that foundation and make it even stronger. 

 

 

Sagittarius Winter 2017.JPG

 

Sagittarius

Who or what are you using for comfort, love, or for your own gain? Having resources is great - just be aware of how you use them. As you take, are you also planting seeds? Use the tools that you have been given, but not to their disrespect or detriment. 

 

 

 

Capricorn Winter 2017.JPG

 

Capricorn

You are shedding old skin this Winter. Stepping into a more full version of who you are. Stepping more completely into your authenticity. First however, there is work required. Where in your life and awareness begs for change and transformation? How can you not only embrace, but help to facilitate this process?

 

 

Aquarius Winter 2017.JPG

 

Aquarius

Balance is key this Winter from balance in your relationships and work to time management and family. How can you work to balance all of the things on your plate instead of just juggling them, all the while waiting for the ball to drop? Be fair to you and your time. Delegate responsibilities to partners, family members, or friends if needed. 

 

 

Pisces Winter 2017.JPG

 

Pisces

An "age" or phase in your life is coming to an end. You may be thinking quite a bit about the passage of time this Winter. How things have changed, how you've aged, what you've done, and what you still have left to do. Remember, you are only as old as you allow yourself to feel. Maturing is a beautiful thing, yet you can still be young at heart.

aries-winter-2016.jpg

Aries | 6 of Cups

This season will be all about reconnecting with your inner child and learning from your childhood. Honor what once was. Your sense of nostalgia may be heightened this Winter. Do you see how different events and experiences in your life have all been connected thus nurturing you into the person you are today - for better or for worse. Is there any childhood healing that needs to take place? Look back at your younger years. See how you have grown and matured. What is different and what has stayed the same?

taurus-winter-2016.jpg

Taurus | 2 of Wands

The longer you wait to make a decision, the less choice you have Taurus. This Winter will be spent in contemplation and looking for new options to explore. Do both options bring you to the same end point or do their paths cross for a moment and then keep on going? Evaluate your motivations. Balance will be an important factor this season as well. How will your choices impact the sense of balance in all areas of your life?

gemini-winter-2016.jpg

Gemini | Mother of Cups

Spend your Winter reaching out to others, healing, and sharing the love! This season is all about being the best nurturer you can be - to yourself and others too. You may be feeling a bit lovey-dovey, extra feminine, and all squishy on the inside which may make you a bit uncomfortable Gemini, but it is totally okay! Share all of that extra love and joy you feel within you to others that could use some.

cancer-winter-2016.jpg

Cancer | The Emperor

Discipline, discipline, discipline is the name of the game for you this Winter, Cancer. Bring in the reigns - it's time to tighten up ship! This is a period of taking care of business to build a strong foundation for yourself, which I feel will come in handy as we roll into 2017. Create a to-do list and crack down on some of those responsibilities. This will be an important period of development and independence for you.

leo-winter-2016.jpg

Leo | Daughter of Swords

This Winter will really be about expanding on new ideas, Leo! Get clear on your goals - don't be afraid if you have to put some of them on the back burner for now. This season will be spent learning what works for you. Communicating in new ways and learning new things. Have you been thinking of taking up a new course of study or enrolling in a new class? Now may be the prime time for you to do so!

virgo-winter-2016.jpg

Virgo | Death

Transformation, change, and rebirth will be a HUGE theme for you this Winter, Virgo! Embrace it. Shed your old skin. Let go of old beliefs. Release that which no longer serves you. You may find yourself changing jobs, finding friends who resonate with you on a soul level (and leaving behind those who do not), or perhaps even leaving a toxic relationship. Know that this period, while not easy, will definitely be beneficial in the growth and development of who you are as a soul! This is a powerful time for you.

libra-winter-2016.jpg

Libra | 5 of Cups

Try not to wallow in grief, despair, or loss this season. Winter will ask you to bring out your inner strength to help you heal from your grief. This is the time to focus on what you have - not what you're lacking. Do not hang your head in shame! Try to find ways to renew your confidence. You can bring a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. Only YOU can renew your sense of joy and passion for life! How do you tap into that energy?  *Tip - Take extra salt baths this month to help keep your energy clear and fresh as you go through this trying time.

scorpio-winter-2016.jpg

Scorpio | Son of Swords

Winter will bring to you increased communication. Be mindful to think before you speak - especially in the first few weeks of Winter while Mercury is going retrograde (December 19th 2016 - January 8th 2017). Pay attention to how you communicate with others. What do you say and what do you wish you would say? There will be lots of ideas for you to share with the world. Deepen your knowledge of an existing subject of interest. This season will be a time of enhanced focus for you analytically and intellectually.

sagittarius-winter-2016.jpg

Sagittarius | 8 of Pentacles

Work, work, work is the name of the game for you this Winter, driven Sagittarius. Build and stack your resources. Put in as much work and effort as possible. Now is the time to really hunker down and put your nose to the grindstone with any goals you have. This is an extremely productive period for you where you can get a lot accomplished. This also feels like a great time of building your sense of abundance and prosperity by working towards your aspirations.

capricorn-winter-2016.jpg

Capricorn | 5 of Pentacles

Work on clearing up poverty mindset this Winter, Capricorn. Know that you're not alone and that you truly have all you need to survive. Work on taking better care of your physical body this season. Drink more water. Eat healthier foods. Make sure you spend enough time out in the sun - even if it's a bit chilly outside. Gather with those who love and support you. Don't isolate yourself this Winter. Rejoice in the sunshine with your friends and be grateful for the many blessings in your life, even if it is hard to see them right now.

aquarius-winter-2016.jpg

Aquarius | 4 of Cups

You may feel a little bored, apathetic,  or impatient this season, as it may seem you've hit a bit of a plateau. Be mindful to keep your ego or sense of entitlement in control this Winter.  What has left you so unsatisfied? What can you do to revamp your spark Aquarius? Don't isolate yourself in the darkness of your room. Open the blinds and let the sunshine in!  Don't bask in lower vibrational ways of thinking. Keep your eyes to the light as you face the darkness.

pisces-winter-2016.jpg

Pisces | 3 of Swords

What has broken your heart my dear sweet Pisces? What didn't work out the way you planned? As an idealist, this may have shaken you to your core emotionally. Constantly thinking of this issue, it's got you bound tightly in it's grip, replaying the incident over and over. Are you communicating your displeasure? How can you express these feelings in a healthy way that is more geared toward healing? Focus on regaining your sense of safety and security this Winter. Don't be afraid if it is time to cut some cords - in the end, it may bring more clarity to the situation.

Fall Tarotscopes 2016 | September 22nd to December 20th 2016

fall-tarotscopes-cover-pic-1.jpg

Give me ALL the Fall! Crisp air, pumpkins, hot chocolate, Halloween (Samhain), colorfully crunchy leaves, sweaters, silky scarves, and the season of gratitude - these are all reasons I LOVE Autumn! Can't you feel the magick in the air? As the leaves change and fall, I offer you these Tarotscopes for the warm and inviting months ahead.

Aries | 4 of Cups + Invisibility

Authenticity...

aries-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Have you become bored Aries? Are you struggling to find your way to stand out in a crowd? The best way to do that is to be authentic. Just be you! Don't worry about being seen by others this season. Find security in yourself. Are you doing something because you feel obligated but not because your heart and soul is in it? What do you truly want to do? When we do things out of a sense of obligation, we can lose steam easily. Focus on bringing more authentic expression to your life. Your life can't possibly be boring when you focus on expressing how you feel in all the true colors of who you are instead of repressing it.

 

Taurus | 7 of Pentacles + Jack O'Lantern

Protection...

taurus-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

You reap what you sow Taurus. It is time to evaluate past actions and whether they have bared fruit. Is there anything worth saving? Anything worth building on? Don't compare your progress to others - your harvest is your own. Protect your assets and investments this month. Also know that you are loved and protected. Don't allow worries, fears, doubts, or thoughts of not being good enough to creep in. Work with black tourmaline, obsidian, or black kyanite for an extra boost of protective energy when you feel that you need it this season.

 

Gemini | 6 of Swords Reversed + Joy

Rejoicing in the present...

gemini-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

This Fall, there seems to be a knowledge of the need to move on but you may outwardly be standing still Gemini. The transition is happening within. Instead of worrying about if you are in the right place or moving towards the future, focus on living in the present. By living in the present this season, it will help you to re-evaluate what is of importance in your life. Take time to breathe. By taking a step back and focusing on joy, you may find the answer that you have been looking for.

 

Cancer | The Empress + Skull of Darkness

Blind spots...

cancer-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Send love to yourself this Autumn, Cancer! Send love to others as well. This season is a time of nurturance. It is also a season to see where you may be missing some loving thoughts and actions in your life. Are you receiving the love that you wish to receive? Are you giving the love you wish to give? And in all that giving and receiving of love, make sure to dole out some of that to yourself as well. Spoon it in with daily affirmations and replacing lower vibrational thoughts with higher ones. Where would you like more love, tenderness, and guidance in your life? How can you give that to yourself?

 

Leo | Justice + Skull of Flowers

Creating through the ashes...

leo-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Justice comes to play for you this season Leo. Whether things work out the way you expect them to or not, be mindful that you can overcome. You can rebuild. New things are waiting to be planted now that lady justice has leveled her scales. The playing field is even now - even if you have to start from scratch. This energy is prime for rebirth and renewal. Like the scorched earth of the forest after a fire, new life will eventually sprout.

 

Virgo | 8 of Wands + Graveyard

Unnecessary fear...

virgo-fall-tarotscope-2016.jpg

Go! Onward, Virgo! Leap forward, take the step. All the 'what-ifs', and 'I don't knows' are unnecessary fears. Energy and time will be moving quickly for you this Autumn. Don't waste it feeding and feeling trepidation. Things may be whirling around you so much and happening so quickly that your head is spinning. It may cause you to want to stay in place, frozen in fear. Learn to work with this energy to your advantage. You can get a lot accomplished this season if you stay organized, focused, and believe in yourself.

 

Libra | Queen of Wands + Trick or Treat

Mischief and play...

Don't be afraid to let your hair down and have a little fun this Autumn, Libra! It's okay to have a little fun, but remember your responsibilities. Otherwise, the treat might turn into a trick! It's like going out on Halloween night, making sure your costume is top notch, strutting your stuff from house to house to ensure you get the most candy, and then going home and binging on it. Don't do it! It may be fun now, but you'll be sick in the morning. Try to keep your impulses in check. Everything in moderation. You don't want overindulgence to steal your shine this season.

 

Scorpio | 2 of Cups Reversed + Skull of Light

Illumination...

It looks like we may be shining a light on our relationship dynamics this season Scorpio. What is just not working in your relationships? Is there a communication issue? Is one of you more emotional or 'in tune' while the other is more logical and out of touch with their feelings? This Autumn will be a time of trying to balance relationships - especially those of great importance to us. There will also be realizations this season as to whether things may be reconcilable or not. This may be a sensitive time for you, so make sure to take good care of yourself. Focus on what is for the best and highest good of all involved.

 

Sagittarius | The Wheel Reversed + Eternal Love

Love is love is love and it transcends physical death...

As the wheel of the year turns again, the seasons change, the leaves fall away. This Fall will have a huge focus on love - love lost, love found, love that has changed shape. As the veil thins, you may be more aware of your loved ones in spirit surrounding and extending their love to you. Know that all things have a cycle. Things may be last for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Energy never dies, it is simply transformed. Give thanks and gratitude this Autumn for the loving presences in your life - your parents, children, spouse, friends, fur babies, loved ones in spirit, even the woman who always smiles and waves when you pass her on the street.

 

Capricorn | 6 of Pentacles + Barmbrack

Sweetness and synergy...

Weigh your options carefully Capricorn. Allow for an even exchange of energy to take place. You are creating the alchemy of your life. Your life is a recipe! Would you like to add more love? How about more honesty? Do you feel called to be more generous? You are the chef! How can you work with others more this Fall? How can you share your resources and bring more positivity to those around you? Open up more space for giving and sharing in your life this Autumn. You could even volunteer in a food drive or donate your time to a homeless shelter! Doing these things make you feel good and they also help to balance energy.

 

Aquarius | The Tower + Zombie

Control...

Release the need for control this season Aquarius. That may feel hard to do right now, especially if you feel that things are out of control or crumbling around you. Don't allow situations that are out of your control to change who you are and make you feel like less of yourself! Sometimes when we feel that we can't get bearings on a situation, it is easier to shut down or find an escape than to accept the situation for what it is. We can't micromanage everything. Occasionally, the Universe likes to shake us up to wake us up! To teach us how to be more in the flow. This Autumn, be more accepting of change and less rigid.

 

Pisces | Death + Forgiveness

Reducing burden...

It seems like there will be some healing energy surrounding you this Autumn, Pisces. Transforming and changing the way you look at others, situations from the past, and your roles in them. Stripping away what is no longer you. In finding forgiveness for ourself and for others, we free ourselves from carrying the burdens of guilt, grief, anger, resentment, ego, fear, and so much more. These things only weigh us down on our journey. When we find forgiveness, true forgiveness, we can finally release and begin to heal more deeply than ever before.
