Simple morning ritual for the beginner witch

A new day is here and you feel MAGICAL AF, how best to start your day than a a simple ritual?

Now, don’t get me wrong, we are NOT a Disney Princess, we do not wake primed and perfect and ready to tackle our day. Sometimes it takes every ounce of energy to just sit up.

Here, I have broken down a nice ritual you can do as and when you feel like you can, don’t feel guilty if you don’t do it everyday, i can guarantee I don’t! However, I do notice that my better days have always been those where I have done some kind of ritual. Could just be though!

Your morning caffeine kick

Whether it’s tea or coffee, even a glass of water, whatever your choice of beverage is first thing in the morning, let’s make it magical.

A black coffee cup that looks like a cauldron holds a cup of tea and says 'witches brew' on the front
AJ’s favourite mug

I add honey (to sweeten my day) to my coffee (grounding) and stir the cup three times as I set my intention for the day. Sometimes out loud, sometimes in my head. Whatever my intention is, i speak it as though it has already been achieved.

e.g.

“I have had a productive day”

“I have had a happy day”

“I have achieved everything I wanted to achieve”

“I completed that report”

” I have absolutely smashed my day because I am a badass”

After the third stir, I tap my spoon three times on the rim of my favourite mug to ‘seal’ the intention for the day. Instead of a spoon, you can also use a cinnamon stick for extra abundance and magical energy!

Light a candle / some incense

This can be made even better when you use a candle / colour or scent to compliment your intention for the day. For example, if you want to stay relaxed, use lavender.

Here’s a wee correspondence chart if this is all new to you

Visualise your day

As I have a 9-5, it’s pretty easy to predict how my day is going to go but I also visualise how i want my day to make me FEEL. Maybe I have a big presentation that i’m nervous about it, as I get dressed i picture myself absolutely smashing it and celebrating in the pub afterwards. It’s warm, inviting and the air is abuzz with delight.

Draw a card of the day

This is a nice and simple thing to do if you’re still learning tarot, want to brush up your skills, are experimenting with a different deck or even just want to start incorporating more divination into your daily routine.

The Supernatural Tarot deck and guide book is spread out on the carpet. the first card is turned up showing XVIII The Moon - represented here by an illustrated version of the character Loki / Gabriel in various shades of blue with the red phases of the moon circling his head. 2 cards remain face down with a pentacle in the centre.

Questions to ask as you shuffle your deck:

“What challenges may I see today”

“How do I approach that presentation I have”

“How do I communicate my feelings with X:

“How can i make my day brighter’

“What good news in in store today”

Seal your day

As the ending to my little ritual of the morning, I like to seal it with a bit of glamour magic. I have a favourite enchanted lipstick (or a chapstick of you’re not feeling the effort… you know), pop that on while speaking a final affirmation to the mirror. For me, that final affirmation is usually ‘you got this, AJ’.
