Wishes & Dreams for Summer

Seeing as this blog is brand new and full of potential, I thought I would start off with a seasonal wish list; what is it that I hope to gain from starting to blog again and from reclaiming my witchy path?

On a mental, emotional and metaphysical level…

  • Build new relationships with like-minded folks.
  • Gain some clarity on my future; for the first time in a long time, I don’t have a clear vision of where I’m heading in the next couple of years (whether or not those clear visions ever came true in the past.)
  • Learn to let some things go… there’s a big one.

On a more tangible level…

  • Stockpile some new witchy books! I already ordered Skye Alexander’s Modern Witchcraft series to sate my need for pretty and useful; can’t wait for them to arrive.
  • Some kind of bowl or other container to put the floating candles I already bought in… hopefully this one comes along soon so I can finish my new altar. Just need that water element!
  • Possibly a tarot deck or some other divination tool, although I’m not certain if I can commit to the time it takes to learn and get familiar.
  • More candles! (Always, right?)

What are you wishing for this summer?

  1. This summer I am planning on learning to drive, my husband and I are hoping to finally go on honeymoon (we were married in April but due to work commitments have had to postpone our honeymoon).
    On a metaphysical level I want to learn more about herbs and incorporating them into my magic, I often tend to go for simple candle magic which has always worked well but I feel sometimes my spells would benefit from the extra oomph herbs could provide. I also want to make a comprehensive list of crafts, recipes and simple rituals I can do to celebrate the sabbats.
    I have recently been reading the llewellyn sabbat series which has given me some great ideas, coupled with ideas from Ellen Dugan’s books, Mandy Mitchells hedgewitch book of days (my current favourite) and Melusine Draco’s traditional withcraft series, I am hoping to create my own ways of celebrating these special times.


    1. Congratulations on your honeymoon, Alison, and on getting married – what an exciting time for you! I hope you are going somewhere fun.

      Herbal magick is definitely one of my favorite aspects – there are just endless things to learn and experience there. Do you have a garden at all? Growing your own herbs is especially rewarding in my experience.

      It sounds like we are interested in a lot of the same things – those are some of my favorite witchy books! I’m also a big fan of Deborah Blake; she and Ellen Dugan have so many wonderful and practical ideas. Thanks for sharing – I look forward to getting to know you more! 🙂


  2. First: I’m glad you’re back! I followed your Witch of Howling Creek blog for a few years up until your hiatus.

    Second: What am I hoping for this summer? Good grades on my last three exam and a passing grade on the MBLEX (the licencing exam for massage therapists). For our garden to grow nicely.

    I am looking forward to the solstice. My birthday is the 19th then the solstice falls on the full moon this year!


    1. That is so nice to hear – when I decided to do a new blog, I had no idea the response I would have from people who followed me three years ago! Thank you so much for the support.
      Fingers crossed for your exams and for your garden – maybe some clarity of thought tea or a good luck charm bag? And happy birthday! I’m totally stoked about the midsummer/full moon this year – what an extraordinary pairing!


  3. My summer seasonal work this year is being served by the growing sun/heat as I am burning through a familial pattern of significant dysfunction: engaging with a challenging loved one from a place of sovereignty fueled by love, rather than angry obligation.

    And, taking the time to sink into summer and spend time barefoot in the grass, and enjoying the birds and animals in my backyard.

    My birthday is the 18th. Looking forward to a joy-filled bday solstice celebration.

    Bright Blessings!


    1. That sounds like a lot of commitment but admirably so, Laura! I hope your family relationship takes the shape you are looking for.

      So many June birthdays! My grandma’s birthday is the 18th – happy bday!
