Do Your Job


Even when things seem grim, you are still the Witch of your place.  And, as Granny Weatherwax once explained, “A Witch ought never to be frightened in the darkest forest because she should be sure in her soul that the most terrifying thing in the forest was her.”

So be the Witch.

When you salt the soup, salt health and savor into it.

When you plant the seeds, plant growth, prosperity, and wealth.

When you run water on your hands, come back into the presence of the Goddess.

When you see evil, bind it, hex it, return all of its energy to Mother Earth because, as we all know, “One thing becomes another, in the Mother, in the Mother.”

When you see beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence, guard them, grow them, strengthen them, for that is the charge of the Goddess.

If you’re not the Witch of your place, who’s going to be?

  1. Thank you! Thank you, because I’ve been flailing in the last two weeks in my own morass of problems swept under the rug, till I am suddenly up to my neck in it. But this reminds me to keep on Doing the Work, because the Gods/Ancestors tapped me for my part in the Work, and it just so happens to keep me swimming, ya know?

    • Turning Tides, Thank YOU for your kind words. You know, some days, writing this blog can feel as if I’m just shouting out into the void. It always helps to know someone’s listening. And the Gods/Ancestors most definitely need you right now.

  2. Reblogged this on Palms of Our Hands and commented:
    I’ve been struggling a lot with anxiety and continuing on my polytheist path. But Hecatedemeter has often posted something right when I needed some answers. 🙂

  3. This was a necessary reminder for me, today. Thank you.
