I’ve known very few people who absolutely love cleaning house. I’ll have to admit that once I get started cleaning sometimes I get in the groove, and with music playing in the background it’s almost enjoyable. Almost.

Nurturing the magick in your cottage should go hand in hand with cleansing a house, but a witch has to go beyond cleansing to truly enchant a home. During this retrograde time I realized that I had been putting off a few things that would really improve the magick at Sycamore Hill. It’s been nearly a year since we moved in and my magick room in particular was still a mess. What was worse is that I couldn’t find things. So, long story short, I dove right in. There’s more to do, but that’s more material for future blog posts! 😻

I organized my herbs and incense, and placed them in my painted cabinet. Ok, they aren’t in alphabetical order ….yet. Now I have everything I need in one place to make that Lughnasadh incense!

On top of the herb cabinet I’ve set up a formal altar to honor Cerridwen and Cerrnunos….the Owl and the Stag. No tools on this altar since it’s mainly a place for meditation …. and lovely crystals. Speaking of which, crystals should definitely be a part of every witchy home. I think our home has crystals in nearly every room.

This little cauldron I scored at a local vintage fair. Flea markets and vintage fairs are an excellent source for witchy decorating items and tools. Scan their energy before buying. If there is weird or disturbing energy in the item give it a pass. You probably won’t be able to cleanse away those bad vibes. Even if the energy resonates, be sure to smudge and cleanse the item when you get it home. I’m a regular junk gypsy and have given many lovely items a new magickal home.

On to my witchycraft room….

My mish-mash of craft supplies went on shelves behind some old curtains. I mounted some of those stick on removable hooks on either end of the shelves to hold a curtain rod. This one thing made the whole room easier on the eyes and gave things a more magickal feel.

Above the shelves sits a bathroom cabinet I rescued from the street, cleansed and painted, and now a home for magickal oils.

My working altar is where I will do most of my witchycrafting. I covered the craft table with a nice cloth and tidied things up. Still a lot of stuff there ….but most witches I know have a lot of STUFF. I think cleansing and organizing is the key.

One of the best things about my witchycraft room is the window seat reading nook. I’m ashamed to say I have barely used it. This witch is too busy! But, I cleaned it up, added boho curtains and now it’s very inviting!

And, yes, I do have a thing about mermaids and dragons. Who doesn’t? The merkitty clock above my computer chair was a splurge from when we first moved in. Isn’t she lovely? My husband thinks she’s weird. Go figure!

So far so good. There are still a few more weeks until the end of Mercury retrograde and we will see what other magickal home improvements I can conjure up. Stay tuned….

Has Mercury retro inspired you to do any magickal fix -ups in your enchanted home? Share in the comments. I’d love to hear from you!

Bright Blessings,
