Hi there!
My name is Kayla, I'm a solitary eclectic witch, I've been studying witchcraft for around 6 years and practising for 5.

Spectacular, rare, very high-quality Golden Selenite with perfect golden blades, bursting with power, connection and high vibrations. Most of these crystals are only found in private collections and were discovered at the Red River Floodway in Winnipeg, Canada.

They are mind-blowing specimens, not to be missed and fabulous to work with when looking to connect to our Planet’s energies or to help one feel grounded here on Earth. These powerful crystals are very special and more examples are available from the Venusrox Notting Hill Showroom.

I’ve had my nostril pierced a few times before, which hasn’t really been a problem with blowing nose/colds… but I’m guessing septum would be pretty different, so, I’d have to take that into consideration.
I think there are fake ones you can get, but I haven’t seen any around and I’d probably have to order one online. That a good idea, though!

I have my septum pierced! I wear a retainer in it + have horrible allergies but it has never been a problem :)

(You can answer this privately if you like) do you know of any good info based blogs that would be good for someone just starting to look into magic/witchcraft to follow?

paganstudygroup immediately comes to mind, this post too
I can’t really think of that many (there are lots of high quality blogs around though, I’ve just taken an antihistamine so I’m really drowsy sorry). You can check out my newbie tag.

I’d recommend that you avoid anyone who says that wicca + witchcraft are the same thing/is transphobic/cis+hetro-normative/ableist/appropriative (something which is  HUGE problem within lots of pagan circles)

Tumblr posted this before I was finished bah!

I’m going to post this so my followers can give you some good blogs to look into! Also check out books at your local library, I found that they were a huge help when I was starting out (again avoid authors like Silver Ravenwolf, check out the book review + witchcraft tag)

Good luck! Feel free to send another ask if you need help with something :)

"The Séance"

Little planchette, guided by hands.

Scrawling out the damned’s demands.

We wonder where this spirit dwells,

And what these letters soon shall spell.

Sterling silver planchette amulet with natural moonstone cabochon.

Baltic mythology: Lada and Lela
The great goddess Mother Lada – the ruler of sky, earth, water, fire and atmosphere, the provider and controller of never ending earth energy and life power, mostly pictured as a woman surrounded by twin birds, deers, grass-snakes, etc, standing and holding hands either on her hips or up to the sky. Her daughter Lela – goddess of birth, fertility and youth marriage. Lada and Lela are even older than ancient antiquity goddesses and their archaic cult has very deep roots and wide variety. The oldest known sacrifice is sacrificing white capon after which people danced and celebrated šventvakaris (sacred evening). 
Lada consolidated as a mother of the whole world and her daughter Lela as a patroness of marriages and mediator between sky and earth. Both of them are regarded as revivers of spring nature and whole verdure, givers of rain and dew. Lela is also considered to be a protector of laumės (Baltic spirits similar to pixies). The myth says that a mysterious bird called lelekė (Lela) also known as naktinyčia protected them from people so laumės could perform their rituals.
Most of rites for Lada and Lela were held in spring. Women would sit on hedges and sing, asking Lada to take her golden keys, unlock the earth, release the green silky grass, shed the silver dew, pour the warm rain. A very common Ryteliai rite was held by the youth. They played „a wedding game“ while sitting beside fire or dancing around it. It was an erotic rite and had a magical meaning – it symbolised bonds between motherhood, love and marriage. During Midsummer Day Lithuanians set various branches and flowers in streams, picked herbs. At night everyone danced around a huge sacral fire with their hands up to the sky and burned sacrifices. Mothers who had dead children couldn‘t eat apples until 15th of August so that Lada would feed them.
In Lithuania, when a family had a newborn child, they told a tale to their other children. It was about a stork elsewhere known as leleka (Lela) that lived beyond a sacred river flowing in the east where sun rises. The stork brings all children from there to their new families. 
Lada is also known as a goddess of war as both Lada and Lela are closely related to various historical and war events. Some warriors shouted Lela Ha Lela while fighting in the battles, some of them called Lela while going to a battle with Lelo! Lelo!.Many warlike callings had words reffering to Lada in them too, like Lada, Lado, Laduta, Ladele.
Lithuanians addressed Lada as a real human being. They also built her sanctuaries on hills which is why there were many hills known as Ladakalniai.
