Kawaii Tarot By Diana Lopez

These cozy, pastel little cards are such a great buy. First of all, the entire deck is small. The cards themselves are a little smaller than your average playing cards, which makes them perfect for little hands if you have any baby witches running around. Second of all, the images are beautiful, simple, and created with the most comforting pastel palette. Third of all, the guide book is incredibly well-written and gives very direct meanings. This deck is perfect for someone just getting started with tarot. ($11.90 from Amazon; click photo for purchase info)

Dark Mirror Oracle By Laura Sava

Shadow Work can be painful and confusing, especially in the beginning. This oracle deck guides you through all of the “shadows” of humanity while managing somehow to shine a light of strength and hope. Brutally raw and honest with imagery that depicts just that, I would suggest this deck to only the most advanced tarot readers that know how to manage this sort of energy. On a brighter note, this deck also guides you to healing your inner child and spirit when used properly and may be one of the greatest decks I own.

Magick Materials

The following is a collection of magick materials I have sourced from online and recommend to those that are having trouble finding what they need for spells and rituals. (I may make a small commission if you purchase through these links at no extra charge to you. Thank you!)

Clear Quartz Crystal: The Master of All Crystals

Clear Quartz crystal is the one crystal you must have as a witch. It can substitute for any other crystal, plus it’s known as the master healer because it channels any energy and improves any condition. It’s known to improve quality of life by helping you feel happier and more energized and attunes you to your spiritual purpose. I found these on Amazon and they are superior quality, incredibly affordable, and absolutely gorgeous. I’ve used them for jewelry making, circle casting and activation, and crystal gridding. ($9.99 from Amazon; click photo for purchase info)

Mortar & Pestle

If you decide to do any magick work involving herbs and spices, I’d highly suggest a mortar and pestle if you don’t have one. I use mine for more than grinding herbs as I keep it on my altar and occasionally use it as an ancestral offering bowl. (About $24.99 from Amazon; click photo for purchase info)

Palo Santo Wood Sticks

Palo Santo Wood is a sacred wood that when burned helps cleanse and purify the sacred space, protects against negativity, lifts dark moods and brings forth feelings of centeredness, love, and connection, raises vibrational frequency, calms anxiety, stress, reduces insomnia, inspires creativity, strengthens the immune system, and is an insect repellent. It has a very gentle aroma, with tinge of sweetness, lemon, and mint. ($11.99 from Amazon; click photo for purchase info)
