I recently returned from my yearly summer vacation visiting home and thought what better way to share what I bring while on the go as a tarot reader and practicing witch than by showing you!
I rarely travel but when I do its typically by car so I'm not super restricted on packing but I still like to keep things compact. This is what I consider one of my favorite finds:
Its the jack of all trades when it comes to my witchy travels. I'm able to pack so much easily inside it inconspicuously , and the top makes a great workspace for readings, spellwork, writing etc. PLUS its aesthetic AF haha. This was a Marshalls find from a few years ago but I'll link something similar here
This works for me because I like to pack lots of Tarot decks, but you aren't restricted to box/baskets forms, you could even pack your supplies in a makeup pouch or jar!
Inside my basket I bring: Tarot decks Tarot Journal BOS Writing utensils 1 or 2 empty sachets a Candle holder Whatever I'm currently reading
Of course not everyone has the ability or desire to pack such a large item, perhaps your only going away for a short amount of time...that's when the trusty tin comes out! This is my go to when I just need to grab and go, it gets packed in the backpack or purse easily and for longer trips I throw it into my basket.
Inside the trusty tin (make your own here) I keep:
A Tea Light Candle
Black Salt - Great for protection & cleansing Incense Matches - Doubles as a way to light the candle plus an offering or to cleanse. Clear Quartz - Can be used in place of other crystals as it is often referred to as the "universal stone" Crystal Chips- I cant fit more than one full stone in this tin so chips are a great way to transport extras and they are easy and inconspicuous for me to leave places ( good luck brother finding the one I left in your car for protection haha). Cinnamon Stick- I could easily overwhelm myself by bringing lots of different herbs so i try to keep it simple, Cinnamon offers protection, manifestation and that extra spice sometimes needed. An Empty Bottle- Its always nice to have an extra, this bottle can be used to collect items like graveyard dirt, moon water etc. or for a quick spell jar on the go!
These are my go to's but of course everyone and their practice is different, I even saw someone turn the lid of their tin into a pendulum board once!
Other things you could pack in your trusty tin: Birthday candles
Salt packets Matches Thread
Essential Oils Pendulum
Coins Dice Ribbons Feathers Bells Scraps of paper ...and so much more!
