Supply Ideas for Witches in Autumn
Fall is a time when many a witch and pagan truly comes alive. If you have struggled over the year to really feel your magic, this time of the year often brings a good influx of witchy vibes to reawaken some of your magic before the dormancy of winter starts to kick in.
You may find it is a good time to refresh your altar and supplies as the spooky season begins to kick into gear and inspiration abounds. Here you will find a list of some things you might want to add to your collection and supplies.
There are many great crystals that you might want to add to your collection during this time of year. Rather than suggest a specific crystal, here are some crystal shapes that may bring a new sense of energy to your altar for fall and Halloween.
One great crystal for this season is the sphere. Spheres offer a great gentle energy to infuse in your space. They make excellent focal points for meditation and magic. If you enjoy crystal scrying, spheres are an excellent choice for this. While clear, smoky, black, or other translucent crystal may be best for some, any material sphere can trigger clairvoyant visions if it speaks to you.
Another great crystal shape for fall and Halloween season is the skull. Crystals carved into skull shapes can make excellent focal points for spirit work, mediumship, and death work for some witches. They are symbols of both life and death and can be useful in healing work and psychic development. Plus, they can make excellent Halloween and spooky associations.
As a bookworm, I always say yes to more books. Here are some that may make good additions to your collection this fall that can also help enhance your personal practice.
2023 Sabbats Almanac
The Llewellyn Sabbats Almanac come out every year but they actually start with the Witches’ New Year of Samhain. So right now is the perfect time to pick up the 2023 Sabbats Almanac! This Almanac breaks down each of the eight Sabbats into several articles starting with a general article about the holiday, an article relating to the astrological events during the season, specific tales and traditions celebrated during this time, recipes of foods to make for your feast, a craft to make, and a ritual.

Spirit Work and Ancestors
As the veil begins to thin closer and closer to Samhain, many pick up pace with their spirit work and ancestor work. You may want to consider some of the following books on the subject to enhance your practice.
This groundbreaking book shows you how to work with different types of ancestors to find, develop, and celebrate the personal power of your inner badass. By embracing the strength of your lineage—both blood relatives and those chosen by the heart—you can receive wisdom and guidance when you need it the most.
Honoring Your Ancestors
Ancestor veneration is one of the most widespread spiritual practices in the world. This book shares the important distinctions between working with blood ancestors, lineage ancestors, and affinity ancestors while helping you recognize the signs that your ancestors are responding to your petitions and offerings. You will also explore important topics like mediumship and ancestral trauma so you can be sure to develop a veneration practice that's uplifting and affirming for you.
