Ask Juniper Frost – Your Witchcraft and Wicca Questions Answered – August Edition



As the sun dips below the horizon and the nights of August grow mysteriously longer, magic is undeniably in the air. With Lammas blessings fresh in our hearts and the anticipation of Mabon around the corner, we gather under the waning summer skies to seek wisdom from the ever-enchanting Juniper Frost.

Whether you’re looking to harvest some guidance or sow seeds of knowledge, Juniper is here, with her cauldron of insights, ready to assist. So, lovely witches, let’s unfurl our parchments and see what the month has in store!

Dear Juniper,

I’ve just begun my journey into witchcraft, and sometimes I feel overwhelmed with all the information out there. How do I know which path is right for me and where to start?

Lost Little Witch

Juniper Frost says:

First and foremost, welcome to the enchanting world of witchcraft! The feeling of being overwhelmed is a common one among budding witches. With so many traditions, spells, and crystals, it can feel like standing at the crossroads of a magical forest without a map.

Start by listening to your intuition. Our magical paths are deeply personal, and often, our inner voice already knows the direction. Begin with basics: grounding exercises, meditation, and understanding the energies of the moon phases. Once you’re comfortable, slowly explore areas that intrigue you—be it herbology, divination, or crystal magic.

And remember, you don’t have to fit into a pre-defined box or path. Create your own magical journey, blend traditions if you like, and most importantly, enjoy every spellbinding moment!

Bright Blessings!

– Juniper F.

Dear Juniper,

I’ve been in my coven for about a year, but I still feel like the odd one out. Everyone seems so close, and I often feel left out of inside jokes or decisions. Any advice on how to bond better with my witchy sisters?

Lonely Lunar Witch

Juniper Frost says:

Coven dynamics can be as intricate as the most complex spells. However, it’s essential to remember that every member, including you, brings their unique magic and energy to the group.

Start by taking initiative. Maybe organize a full moon gathering at your place or suggest a witchy book club. This will allow you to spend more time with them, understand their personalities, and naturally build stronger bonds. Also, consider having one-on-one hangouts. Sometimes, personal connections flourish better outside group settings.

Lastly, communicate. If you’re feeling left out, it might be unintentional on their part. Openly discussing your feelings can lead to understanding and solutions.

Magical Hugs,

– Juniper F.

Dear Juniper,

I’ve recently started dating someone who doesn’t believe in witchcraft and sometimes pokes fun at my practices. How do I handle this situation?

Heartstruck Hexer

Juniper Frost says:

Relationships are built on mutual respect and understanding. While it’s okay to have different beliefs, it’s essential that both parties respect each other’s practices and boundaries.

Initiate a calm conversation with your partner. Explain why witchcraft is vital to you, sharing some of its core principles. If they’re willing, introduce them to a simple ritual or meditation—sometimes, experiencing is believing. However, if they remain dismissive or derogatory, you must question if this relationship aligns with your spiritual and emotional well-being.

Remember, love is the most potent magic, but it must flow both ways.

Love and Light,

– Juniper F.
