The Sea Witch is often a solitary witch that honors a deep connection to the interplay between the land and the sea. Coastlines are a place of dynamic weather, shifting tides caused by the moon, and highly energetic elements at work.
The Sea Witch style of witchcraft works with the elements as they relate to one another in areas where land meets sea, and it’s no surprise that the element of water plays a big role in their practice.
What Is Sea Witchcraft?
Sea Witches are very in tune to the magic of the moon, since it has a dynamic relationship with the tides of the ocean and large bodies of water. This is where the Sea Witch draws much of her ritual inspiration from.
Sea Witchcraft is based on raising energy from the already powerful forces of nature all around, but that specifically are heightened by coastlines. This means that rituals and spells honoring thunder, lightning, storms, the power of the sea and the roots of the land are all practiced regularly.
Let’s look at a few ways to get started with sea witchcraft.
