Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies: Temperance

In Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies, I’ll be going through every card individually and sharing mini insights we as disabled and neurodivergent (ND) witches can take from it.

Anybody else guilty of all-or-nothing thinking? It’s one of my most insidious brain loops. If I get started on a project, whether it’s drafting a blog post or cleaning out my closet, my impulse is to just keep going until I finish the dang thing. On the flip side, if I’m a little bit achy and have to cancel an appointment, my instinct is to throw my hands up and call the whole day a wash. Spoiler alert: neither of these are particularly helpful! And it’s during these moments that I tend to draw Temperance. 

Temperance reminds us that most things are best in moderation. We can tackle projects one shelf at a time and take breaks in between–even breaks that last days if need be! We can push ourselves to do one thing during not-great days and see how we feel afterwards. As spoonies we often need more rest in between activities, and that’s okay. Temperance encourages us to balance work, play, and rest. It’s not always easy (especially if, like me, you’re prone to all-or-nothing thinking). But it is absolutely worth it, and it’s what we all deserve.

Fundamentals: Conserving Energy

Energy (or lack thereof) is one of the biggest hurdles to spellwork and rituals for me. Pain flareups come and go, and while the intense ones certainly sideline me, those tend to only happen once or twice a month. My energy level, however, is always lower than the average able-bodied 30-year-old’s. I have to pace myself with care and precision, and no matter how cautious I am, it’s never a perfect science. And I’m not alone–nearly all the spoonies in my circle struggle to understand, navigate, and sustain their energy. My loved ones with ADHD are exhausted after periods of intense focus. I know of Hard-of-Hearing folks who need to take a nap after straining to listen and/or lip read a long conversation. There’s a reason the Spoon Theory is so widely-referenced and beloved in the disabled/neurodivergent communities. It speaks to that fundamental challenge of moving through the world with a body and/or brain that functions slower, or with more difficulty, or differently. Whether you have ankylosing spondylitis or vision impairment or depression, it usually takes more energy for a spoonie to navigate the world than what’s required of an abled/neurotypical human. 

In terms of witchcraft, this means that we need to plan our spells and rituals carefully. If wrangling focus is more of a challenge, for instance, we might need to build breaks into our rituals to space out, focus on something else, or reset. If walking the perimeter during circle casting is possible but tiring, we might instead trace the perimeter with a wand or athame while keeping our stationary position in the center. My point is that something doesn’t need to be impossible to warrant an adjustment. I can stand/walk for a long time, but it might send me into a flareup later. There’s no reason why I can’t adjust a spell that calls for these activities. Spells require energy, sure, but you shouldn’t have to pour all your reserves into your magic. 

Every spell and ritual is different, of course, and your specific access/accommodation needs will be very personal to you. But in this post, I wanted to explore some basic methods of conserving energy while practicing witchcraft. Off we go! 


In my last Fundamentals post, I talked about creating shorthand tools for common spell-related actions. For example, you might program a crystal with the energy of a deity or ancestor you work with frequently, and thus anytime you hold the stone or use it during a spell you’re automatically invoking that deity/ancestor’s energy and presence. Or you might decide that “grounding and centering” before casting a spell is as simple as closing your eyes and taking three slow, deep, mindful breaths. These sorts of shorthand tools allow you to fine-tune a spell to take less time/focus/energy while still performing the spell with intent. That’s really the key when utilizing these shorthands: you should see them not as shortcuts, but as brief yet powerful, targeted actions. 

Another method of conserving energy is to prep elements of the spell ahead of time. This allows you to spread out the energy consumption as far as you need. For example, I wanted to create a sigil for my cane when I performed my ritual to transform it into a magickal staff. I developed the sigil a few days before the ritual. Once I had a sigil I was happy with, I drew it onto a sticker so it was ready to go on the day of the ritual itself. If I’d saved all of this prep work for the day of, I likely would have run out of energy halfway through the ritual. There’s lots of ways you can prepare spell elements ahead of time. You might measure out herbs and essential oils and store them in individual containers. You might record yourself reading the steps for the spell/ritual aloud so you can follow along more easily while performing the spell. You might set up your altar the way you want it for the spell ahead of time. You get the picture! 


One of my favorite ways to perform low-energy magic is by spelling objects to do magic in the background without much maintenance or sustained effort on your part. Think of it like setting up an essential oil diffuser. All you have to do is find a place for the diffuser, plug it in, drop in your essential oil of choice, and let it go. Easy! 

There’s MANY options for this kind of magic. I already mentioned sigils–after you do the work of designing them, they can be drawn on your skin or at the top of a notebook, cross stitched or carved into clay to hang in your bedroom, imprinted on stickers to decorate your magical tools–they sky’s the limit! All you might want to do for maintenance is put the sigil out under the light of an appropriately-timed moon from time to time. (And if you want a crash course on sigil work, I’ll ALWAYS recommend Laura Tempest Zakroff’s book.) 

Another option is to “program” objects for specific magical purposes. You’ve probably heard of this in regards to crystals and stones; many books suggest that when you get a new crystal, you spend a few minutes holding it and focusing on the purpose you’d like to imbue it with. But you can use this same practice on other objects, too! I have a specific mug that I’ve programmed for my Hestia worship. I only use this mug when I make tea to share with Hestia, and by pouring my tea into this mug, I’m automatically adding a layer of pre-set magic into it. You might program a battery candle for cleansing and dispelling negative energy and put it in your bedroom to turn on at night. Maybe you have a particular necklace that you want to program with protective intentions, so that when you wear it you have a magical shield around yourself. Again, the options are as limitless as your imagination. 


What about sustaining energy when you’re working with deities, ancestors, and other spirits? We often envision these beings as unyielding and demanding–especially the gods. Won’t they take it personally if your energy slumps halfway through a ritual in their name, or if your mind wanders while you’re trying to commune with them? 

A disclaimer is in order here: I am by no means an expert on deity work. I have a strong relationship with my patron goddess Hestia, and I’ve done some very basic work with Hermes and Asclepius. But I haven’t branched out much beyond that, so your mileage may vary when it comes to your preferred deities. 

With that said, my experience has been that spirits are delighted to work with you and actively want you to show up as you are. Ancestors are especially understanding–they want you to take care of yourself. If you need to take a breather while you’re working with them, or if things don’t progress the way you hoped because you’re exhausted or spacey, they are more than happy to be patient and accommodating. 

Many deities aren’t quite as familiar with the human experience of unwilling flesh or overwhelmed minds, but they are usually still willing to pause or reorient. My best advice is to be honest with any deities or spirits you work with. It’s tempting when working with a spirit (especially Big Grandiose beings like gods of legend) to present yourself as infallible, collected, and absolutely in control. But we are, after all, only human. I’ve literally paused in the middle of a flowery devotion to Hestia and said, “I’m sorry, I’m really struggling to stay focused. Bear with me.” Hestia is, admittedly, an exceptionally understanding deity. Be gracious and grateful–thank them for their patience, and do your best to follow through on any promises you’ve made them, even if you need to raincheck the end of a spell or ritual until you’re feeling more energized. But in general, the deities are more accommodating than we give them credit for. They understand that they’re working with squishy, fallible human beings. 


I wanted to end with one more example of how I adjust spellcraft to suit my needs and limitations. Candle magic is one of my favorite methods of spellcraft. It’s like prayer or meditation, but with a dancing flame to focus your will and energy on. That said, my ability to perform candle magic is very limited. My spouse has a lot of smoke/scent sensitivities, so I usually only burn candles out on the balcony where the smoke won’t bother them. And I don’t have comfortable seating on my balcony at the moment, so I can’t spend more than a few minutes out there at once. 

Traditional spellbooks will tell you to only use one candle per spell, and to let that candle burn itself down naturally. Blowing out the candle early dispels the magical energy you’ve raised, they say. But I can’t sit on the balcony for hours while I wait for a candle to burn down completely, and I’m obviously not comfortable leaving an open flame unattended on my balcony, either. So I can’t follow this traditional wisdom. More recently, I read a book that suggested sticking a pin in a candle if you want to use it for multiple purposes. For one spell, you let the candle burn down to the pin before blowing it out. Thus, you’re still programming PART of the candle with the intention of your first spell, and the pin portions out the candle. Even this, though, is sometimes not possible for me. (Plus, what if you have a candle that came in a glass jar or other container?)

So I do my own thing with candle magic. For example, I have a Road Opener candle that has been incredibly effective at helping myself and friends land opportunities like college acceptances and job offers. It’s a giant candle in a glass container. Its instructions tell you to choose one intention, and to use the candle by letting it burn down to cinders. Instead, I usually choose a number that is significant for whatever my purpose is (e.g. to send positive opportunities to a friend who’s job hunting, I might choose four, which is associated with employment and stability) and burn my Road Opener candle for four minutes. During those four minutes, I focus on whoever I’m sending energy to and what I hope for them. Once four minutes are up, I say something like, “So mote it be,” or “for their highest good,” and blow out the candle. Is it super traditional? Nope. But it works, and it doesn’t require me to run myself ragged by sitting in an uncomfortable place for hours while a candle burns out. 

So much of spellwork is about raising, directing, and sending energy. It may sound counterintuitive to suggest that minding your own energy and using it wisely is part of magic for spoonies. And to be clear, I’m not saying that magic should require NO energy. I still usually need to rest after a more involved spell or ritual. But you shouldn’t find yourself absolutely spent after a ritual, or recovering for a few days after performing a spell. It is not lazy to want your magic to be accessible and spoonie-friendly! 

As always, thank you for joining me in this exploration of lower-energy magic! If you’re finding this series helpful, or just like the blog overall, please consider buying me a coffee. Every little bit helps and is deeply appreciated.

Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies: Death

In Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies, I’ll be going through every card individually and sharing mini insights we as disabled and neurodivergent (ND) witches can take from it.

If your disability or chronic condition is something that you developed partway through life, you are intimately aware of Death. I can remember with crystal-clear clarity the first day my symptoms began in earnest. My life seems to split cleanly down the center with before disability and after disability, with that moment as the fulcrum. Now, if your disability/neurodivergence is something you were born with, you probably don’t have that clear a moment of transformation in your past. But you may remember moments when someone treated you differently, or you were expected to attempt something that just would not work for you. All of these are tiny deaths, by which I mean transformations. The version of you before this moment passes, and a new version is born.

Everyone experiences these types of transformations in different forms, of course–even joyous moments like getting married or having children are transformations. Know that grief and relief can coexist in these moments. I know I’m not the only one who felt incredible relief when I finally received a diagnosis–it had a name, which meant it had treatment options and I wasn’t alone. But it was painful, too, knowing that this was something I’d have my whole life. Both feelings are absolutely valid, and can exist simultaneously. Death reminds spoonies to grieve when you need to and celebrate when you need to. Big or small, joyful or devastating, deaths are defining moments of change. You don’t have to feel just one way about them.

Movement and Stillness Polarity Spell

I recently reviewed Bending the Binary: Polarity Magic in a Nonbinary World by Deborah Lipp. For the most part, I enjoyed the book, but I was a bit frustrated by Lipp’s use of a wheelchair user as an example of the active/passive polarity. Suffice it to say that I wanted to provide an alternative for those of us who are mobility-impaired and might take umbrage at being described as “passive.” 

When I was discussing the book with my partner E, ae had the brilliant idea of using the polarity of movement/stillness instead of active/passive. I love how versatile this duality is; one person might find stillness in the act of meditation, for example, but I know folks with ADHD who find meditation unbearably difficult, so they might choose to invoke stillness by sitting as still as possible, but letting their mind wander. 

In the book, Lipp offers a sample ritual for each of the polarities she presents. So in the spirit of her writing, I created a spell specifically geared for spoonies to tap into the polarity of movement/stillness. This spell is intended to bring you energy that is sustainable and consistent throughout a busy week. Energy is often at a premium for disabled/neurodivergent folks (that’s the whole idea behind the Spoon Theory I quote constantly, in fact!) and it’s common for energy to peak, burn itself out quickly, and then slump and take a long time to recover. This spell can help to smooth those peaks and valleys, providing you with a more steady, reliable source of spoons. 

Timing-wise, I recommend that you perform this spell just before a busy week. You might choose to perform it the evening before your workweek starts, for example. Or if you have a trip planned, you could cast this spell before departing. Basically, anytime you foresee a busy or stressful week, this spell can be great to have in your back pocket. Plus it doesn’t require any materials or trappings–all you need is yourself and a few uninterrupted moments of time. 

It’s also worth noting that you do NOT need to perform the steps of this spell “perfectly” for it to be effective. The spell takes you through a process of initiating movement and then stillness in your breath, a part of your body, and then your mind. Naturally, some of these asks will be easier than others. For me, for example, finding a meditative mindset is manageable, but breathing in a specific pattern can be challenging. That’s okay! The point of the spell isn’t to Do It Right. The point is to be mindful of each of these pieces of yourself, to try for movement and stillness in each of them, and (importantly) to NOTICE the places where you are challenged. Pushing yourself to hold perfectly still if it isn’t possible for you won’t add anything to the spell. In fact, the very act of noticing those challenge points adds to the spell, because it directs the energy that you’re summoning to the areas where you get hung up or have limitations. 

Let’s begin! 


  1. Come to a comfortable position of rest (to the degree that that is possible for you). It’s okay if you’re prone to shakiness, tension, or anything else that might make perfect stillness difficult/impossible. Simply find a position that is as restful and comfortable as possible. Notice where you feel movement in this position. Is your chest or stomach moving up and down as you breathe? Is your mind skittering from topic to topic and struggling to settle? Notice, too, where you feel stillness. Where does your body meet the floor, chair, bed, etc. where you’re resting? What parts of your body feel comfortable and relaxed? 
  2. Focus first on your breath. Notice where you feel the movement of your breathing. Is it your chest? Your diaphragm? Your nostrils? Do any other parts of your body move, even slightly, as you breathe? Perhaps your shoulders shift a bit in tandem, or your hands are resting on your stomach and move as your stomach moves. 
  3. If it’s comfortable and safe for you, hold your breath for a few seconds. Notice the stillness that this creates in places where there was movement seconds ago. Notice, too, if this stillness brings any other movements into sharper focus. (I always notice my heartbeat more when I’m holding my breath, for instance.) 
  4. Repeat this cycle a few times, watching your breath for a moment, holding your breath for a few seconds, and maintaining awareness of the movement and stillness these actions create. 
  5. Once you feel ready to move on, say aloud or silently to yourself, “As it ebbs and flows, or at rest, my breath sustains and energizes me.” 
  6. Now, choose a part of your body that you are able to move comfortably and with relative ease. This could be as specific as the tip of a finger or as broad as your entire torso. Really try to listen to your body here: are there any parts of you that want to move, or to rest? Whatever body part you choose, move your focus to there. Begin to move this part of your body in a repetitive way (side to side, for example, or in a clockwise circle). As you move, pay attention to the sensations in your body. Where do you feel the movement most intensely? Does it create any discomfort, or alternatively, does it alleviate any tension or fatigue? 
  7. Now return that body part to stillness. What sensations does this cause? Can you still feel the effects of movement, even in its absence? Does stillness feel like a relief, a resting point? Or does this part of your body still crave the sensation of movement? 
  8. Repeat this cycle a few times, shifting between moving your body and holding it still. Stay focused on how each cycle feels, not just in the body part itself, but anywhere. 
  9. Once you feel ready to move on, say aloud or silently to yourself, “In action or in quiet, my body is an instrument that energy flows through.” 
  10. Finally, shift your focus to your mind. You can initiate mental activity in a few different ways. If you have a strong mind’s eye, you mind visualize yourself spinning in a circle. If visualization isn’t possible for you but you have a strong kinesthetic sense, you can simply imagine the feeling of moving or spinning. Or you could simply give your mind leave to wander as it sees fit. Again, notice how it feels to find movement in your mind. Is it challenging, or is it a relief? Do you find your thoughts getting stuck on any specific topic or idea, or are you bouncing from thought to thought like a pinball? 
  11. Now try to bring your mind to a place of stillness, where thoughts can pass by but you don’t cling to them. Again, this might be especially challenging if you’re neurodivergent, and that’s okay. Notice how easy or difficult it is to seek a clear mind. 
  12. Repeat this cycle a few times. Make sure not to chastise yourself if your mind wanders when you’re trying to maintain stillness. This is a practice, not something you’re meant to perform perfectly. And it is the act of trying that raises energy for your spell. 
  13. When you’re ready to move on, say aloud or silently, “Abuzz with thoughts or soft and slow, my mind directs my energy.” 
  14. Do a brief body scan, starting at the top of your head and moving down to the tips of your toes. Notice one more time where you feel comfortable and uncomfortable. Notice the places where stillness feels rejuvenating and peaceful, or where it feels restrictive. Notice where movement has left any fatigue or discomfort, or where you find yourself desiring more movement. 
  15. Say aloud or silently, “My breath, body, and brain are aligned. I am aware of the ways that movement and stillness can be challenging for me, and I am aware of the ways that movement and stillness can be rejuvenating. I am a vessel for energy to move through. I invite energy for the week ahead. This energy is sustained and consistent. I am able to notice when I crave stillness, and I am able to act when I need movement.” 
  16. Choose a closing statement that feels right for you. It could be “so mote it be” or “for my highest good” or “blessed be” or even simply “it is done.” Tense up the body part you used in step 3. As simultaneously as possible, say your closing statement (or if speaking aloud isn’t comfortable/possible, sign/think it and exhale sharply) and release the tension in your body. 

As the week goes on, pay attention to your energy level. Do you feel a bit more oomph supporting your day-to-day activities? Are you experiencing fewer energy slumps overall? Do you feel better able to sustain energy and pace yourself when need be? If so, you can add this spell to your self-care arsenal. It only takes ten to fifteen minutes to perform, and it might make for a nice, rejuvenating ritual to give yourself regularly. 

Thank you again to E for the inspiration behind this spell! Don’t forget that my book Your Tarot Toolkit is available for purchase and is jam packed with activities and hands-on applications of tarot magic.

Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies: The Hanged Man

In Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies, I’ll be going through every card individually and sharing mini insights we as disabled and neurodivergent (ND) witches can take from it.

If anyone understands discomfort, even pain, it’s the Hanged Man. Upside-down, caught by one leg and unable to free themself, they truly have the serenity to accept the things they cannot change, as the prayer goes. If an opportunity arises to free themself they certainly will, but for the moment this is their reality, and they aren’t going to expend any mental or physical energy fighting against the inevitable. 

If that sounds fatalistic, I promise it isn’t. The Hanged Man’s wisdom for disabled/neurodivergent people doesn’t mean you should stop pushing back against ableism or give up on seeking treatment/aid where needed. It doesn’t even mean you have to be a good sport when a flareup sidelines you or when someone fails to accommodate your needs. What it does mean is accepting that sometimes there will be discomfort, pain, or overwhelm. Those things can’t be stopped in their tracks 100% of the time. We can practice radical acceptance by staying in the moment as much as possible. By breathing through the discomfort. By doing whatever we can to make ourselves more comfortable and taken care of. And most importantly, by not adding to our suffering by digging in against it and shouting in its face.

Spell for a Low-Stress Move

I have moving on the brain lately. One of my dearest friends, Milo, will be moving from the western side of the country to New England in a few months. And myself and my spouse are moving from the southeast to California in July. All three of us (Milo, Spouse, and myself) are disabled/chronically ill/neurodivergent. Moving is a chaotic, stressful process for anyone, but for spoonies there’s extra layers of challenge. Physical limitations can make packing more slow, exhausting, or painful. Neurodivergence can make organization much more difficult, not to mention the upheaval of having all your belongings uprooted, shoved into boxes, and out of reach for days or weeks or months. Last time Spouse and I moved, between my fibromyalgia and their ADHD, we wound up staying up most of the night before moving day, frantically packing and cleaning even though we thought we’d planned enough ahead. (And that was a move with only five minutes between our old apartment and our new one. This move will be across the entire country.) This time, I’m hoping we can start the whole process sooner and pack non-essentials bit by bit, rather than saving everything for the last minute and hoping for the best. 

My point in all this rambling is that moving is dreadful, and I wanted to create a quick spell to help smooth the road as much as possible. This spell is for me, my spouse, and Milo (whose birthday happens to be this week as well! Happy birthday, Milo!) 


  • A piece of paper folded in half. If writing by hand isn’t possible for you, you can also type everything on a computer or phone and then print it out. 
  • If you are writing by hand, you’ll need a yellow or orange writing utensil. It could be a pen, a marker, a crayon, etc. 
  • If you have access to it, the key to your current house, apartment, etc. If you don’t have access to it, you can draw a simple key shape on your paper instead, or print out a picture of a key. 
  • Tape, a stapler, or a glue stick. 


  • Clear quartz to add more energy of new beginnings and smooth transitions.

A note about timing. The absolute best time to perform this spell would be on or around the new moon, as moving house is a new beginning and the new moon is great for those. If the new moon isn’t soon enough, you could also perform this spell on a Wednesday, as that is the day of the week magically associated with change and transition. With all of that said, though, timing is not the end-all be-all for a spell to work. Coordinating your spellwork around an appropriate day of the week or month can add energy and intent to your workings, but it is NOT a requirement. 

Now then, let us begin! 


  1. Do whatever helps you get into a spellcasting headspace. Meditate or focus on your breathing. Ground yourself in the earth and find your center. Listen to a few witchy songs. Make an offering to a deity or spirit you work with frequently. Whatever feels right for you! 
  2. Prep your piece of paper. If you have a physical sheet of paper, turn it sideways so you have more width to work with, and fold the paper down the middle. If you’re on a computer or phone, set your page orientation to landscape mode. 
  3. At the top of the left-hand side of the page, place your current house/apartment key if you have it. Trace around the key with your marker, pen, crayon, etc. If you don’t have a physical key, you can draw the simple shape of a key at the top of the page, or affix the picture you printed out to the top of the page. Or if you’re working digitally, paste a picture of a key. (It doesn’t have to look like an Artist’s Work–you’re just trying to invoke the symbolism of a key here. So don’t worry too much about how it looks!) 
  4. Take a few moments to create a list on the left side of the page of what worries you/stresses you out about moving. Are you anxious about making sure everything gets packed and organized on time? Does you expect that the hard work of packing will exhaust you or cause pain flareups? Do you shudder at the prospect of making phone calls to moving companies, realtors/leasing offices, etc? It doesn’t matter how seemingly big or small your concerns feel–write them all down. 
  5. If you know the rough date of your move, write that at the top of the page in the center (basically over the crease in the fold you made, if you’re working with a physical sheet of paper). If you don’t know exactly when you’ll be moving yet, though, feel free to skip this step. 
  6. At the top of the right side of the page, draw/paste another key shape. This one represents the new key for your new home. Do your best to make it look slightly different than the first key shape, but again, don’t worry too much about looks!
  7. Now, looking over your list of concerns, turn each of them into a positive, reassuring, affirming statement that you can write on the right-hand side of the page. For example, if one of your worries was “I physically won’t be able to keep up with packing,” you could write, “I pack a little bit every day and honor my body’s limitations.” If you’re anxious about remembering everything on your to-do list, you could write, “I am diligent in checking my list and keeping it up-to-date.” You get the idea!
    1. A note here: avoid the temptation to write impossible statements. I might, for instance, be tempted to write, “I experience no flareups during our move.” That would certainly be ideal, but it isn’t realistic given my body’s limitations. Instead of writing a statement for the most ideal (but highly unlikely) scenarios, try to write statements that encourage things to go as well as possible. I will almost certainly experience flareups during the moving process, so instead, my statement reminds me to plan ahead and to listen to my body when it tells me to pause. 
  8. Once you’ve reframed all of your worries into intention statements, read the statements on the right side of your paper aloud or silently in your mind’s ear. Read through the whole list ten times. (If you have trouble keeping track of how many times you’ve repeated, you can make a tally mark in the corner of your page.
  9. Once you’re finished, fold the paper again and seal it with tape, glue, staples, or whatever is easiest for you. 
  10. If you’ve managed to do this spell around the new moon, leave the paper someplace where it can charge under the moonlight. 
  11. Spend a few moments reflecting on ways you can make the move easier on yourself (asking friends for help, trying to do a little bit of packing every day, getting rid of some of the Stuff you don’t need anymore, etc.) Make a commitment to yourself to enact these plans. 

Now, this paper is going to act as the binding for your spell, and you’ll want to keep it on hand as you work towards your moving day. However many new moons fall between now and your moving date, try to put the paper out to charge in the new moon every cycle until you’ve completed your move. This will keep the magic charged up and active. And in the meantime, keep the page nearby whenever you’re actively working on moving plans. Place it somewhere in the room where you’re packing at any given time. Or leave it on the desk where you make phone calls, send emails, etc. so it can help you with the logistical/organizational aspects of moving. 

I recently read Spells from Scratch (which I’ll be reviewing on this blog soon!) and I loved the author’s definition of a spell: “Spellcraft makes the possible probable.” We can’t use magic to change the laws of physics or completely iron out any wrinkles that might pop up in our daily lives. Moving house is stressful, overwhelming, and difficult–that can’t be completely done away with. But this spell can help make the bumps and detours a little less intense or frequent. And honestly, when you’re a spoonie, every little bit of ease helps! 

What kinds of spells would you like to see me create/adapt for spoonies in the future? Leave me a comment!
