One of my favorite things about the witchy community is how accepting it is. There is something about spiritual and witchcraft practices that can help a person really take control of their lives, and help manifest happiness, abundance, and success – no matter what those terms mean to you.
The practice can help marginalized communities take back their power – in fact, in an article for Spectrum of the South, Kelly M. Marshall highlights that throughout history, rises of “witch-mania have coincided with times where marginalized populations feel disempowered.” It can truly create a sense of community, and help create a sense of pride for the people that are part of them.
As Cosmic Corner Savannah is LGBTQ+ owned, today, I’d like to spotlight a few spells created by queer witches over on Tumblr. Personally, I don’t find a lot of these spells floating around on the internet much – though maybe that’s just my personal algorithm – so I’d like to share a few
resources for anyone looking for more LGBTQ+ witchcraft.
Please note, we at Cosmic Corner did not write these spells. Their creators & their full posts will be linked! However, we may link to ingredients that Cosmic Corner sells.
Queerpagan’s Glamors to Prevent Misgendering:
Use basic “force of will glamors,” for example: “I am this, people will perceive me as this.”
Try invisibility glamors to avoid dangerous foes out in public: “I am invisible, you cannot see me.”
Enchant jewelry with the energy of the gender you wish to be perceived as.
