Feminist Mantra Monday 1: Get a Little Witchy
Happy Halloween, friends! Today is especially exciting because I'm launching a new project: Feminist Mantra Mondays! Each Monday I'll post a new mantra to help you start the week by embracing your womynhood and connecting with your feminist feels.
Today's mantra -- Get a Little Witchy -- encompasses the Halloween mood and the new moon in Scorpio from the weekend. For me, getting witchy means embracing the unknown in life, stepping into the darkness with courage, and trusting that the world will send you what you need. It's also a call toward the mystical and magical. Check in with your horoscope this week, or pop down to Chinatown and have your aura read. I'll definitely be reading my cards and seeing what tarot wisdom I can cull.
For the feminist undertones of this mantra, Get a Little Witchy is a reminder of the persecution womyn and other oppressed populations have faced for far too long. Often this persecution has happened because womyn are more in touch with the magical and unknown in life. Don't let others make you turn away from that darkness, instead embrace its power and tap into the strength of our female ancestors. Channel their voices into your own and take time this week to claim the healing you deserve.
What does Get a Little Witchy mean to you this week, babes?
Feminist Mantra Monday is a weekly mantra series crafted to help womyn embrace feminisms and themselves as feminists through self-exploration and community-creation.
