I remember when I was in middle school, reading my sun sign horoscope on some twitter app (does anybody remember that 😂) and taking personality quizzes across the internet. I had an obsession for the ones about supernatural creatures and mythology. My interests in the mystical and magickal began even younger than that, and I’m sure we were all introduced in different ways.
Then one day, after abandoning the idea and returning to it in several iterations, I’m looking up from a Tumblr article about witchcraft, and I begun my path. Everyone’s look’s different, but somehow suddenly when I looked on Instagram everybody was a witch! What?!
Normally I don’t like to participate in trends or be part of crowds, but this new way of looking at the world became intoxicating and exciting. Everyday I was learning —and am still learning— new things that show me the world through even more beautiful lenses.
Each of us has found spirituality differently, whether through a religion we’ve devoted our lives to, through magick and working with spells, through science or art, we’ve all heard the call. And luckily so many of us have responded.
Seeing new leaders like Bri Luna of theHoodWitch, Jess at BehatiLife, Shaman Durek, Hadiiya Barbel, (some of my personal favorites) and more bring me hope that we’re heading into a new society of modern mystics and enlightened thinkers.
The incorporation of astrology, tarot, and witch wear into brands like DollsKill is also BADASS. Finding stylish witchy clothes has never been easier!
Being surrounded by more and more newage mystics has been the most encouraging part of my practice. I see them winning and can’t wait to show the world my specific magick while continuing to grown and learn. It is a blessing to be in a time like this.
