Chaos Sigils

Sigils. Lovely symbols of swoops, swirls and symbols that can be found in books, on the internet and even on Pinterest.

This week we have no question posed by our readers, instead, we will focus on one of my biggest pet peeves.

When people think of witchcraft, they think of elaborate rituals occurring deep in the forest, performed by a witch in a hooded cloak. As a witch, that isn’t required, you can be a witch in your own home with nothing more than a cup of coffee or cooking a meal. (Personally I am tired of people telling me and others…
