Day 7 – Self Care Deck
As a Witch, I love my tarot deck and my oracle deck. The way I love those decks is nothing compared to how much I love continuing to add to my own Self Care deck. I try to keep each item on a card to something that takes 5 minutes or less. However, there are also some wild cards in there where I can use them to go deeper like a cleansing bath or create a Rite of Joy for today. Utilize some construction paper, card stock, or 3×5 flash cards to create your very own deck!
Here are some ideas for your deck:
- Glamour Magick
- Somatic Experience
- The Senses
Preparing for Day 8
Each day there will be another (smaller) article detailing the current day and the next day, so if you are a planner like I am, you will have time to make the space.

Day 8 -Banish the Bullsh*t
There are some days, despite our best efforts, that we really need to log off, log out, walk away, disengage, or throw salt at people. Sometimes that is also not feasible! We can create a Banish the Bullsh*t spray as a shield and vibration shifter. It is an act of self-care to recognize situations that are too much and are impacting you in a way that you do not consent to.
- Small spray bottle
- Rubbing alcohol (vodka works too though)
- Spring Water
- Essential Oils: Sage, Rosemary, & Lavender
Take the (cleansed, purified, and blessed) spray bottle and fill ¼ of the way with alcohol. Add your spring water until your spray bottle is almost full.
Open each bottle of essential oil and whisper to it what you need from it.
- 4 drops of Sage
- 5 drops of Rosemary
- 6 drops of Lavender
Whisper to them and tell them to bind together to Banish the Bullsh*t you encounter when you spray them.
Cap it, shake a little, have at it. Boundaries are circles of wellness that we create for ourselves so Banishing the BS is definitely self-care!
Building it Up
This is a free series from Dark Goddess Collective and is a part of our December 2021 work. We believe that it is important to empower each other, this includes providing free information that provokes or encourages knowledge of self, of sovereignty, and that which builds intuition. Over the course of 12 days we will be building up a practice of selfcare that invites in the deeper knowledge of self and building up awareness of the importance of Full-hearted selfcare in our practices of magic.
We are building a network of Sovereigns too!
