About this blog

I guess you could call this a Blog of Shadows of sorts. It's a place to get more in touch with the world of The Outsiders and have a little extra magic in your day.

 

In The Outsiders, several of the characters practice magic. But, like, actual magic, not the flashy stuff you see in movies. I figured I might as well share my knowledge, since their knowledge comes from the knowledge of my friends and I.

 

If nothing else, it will allow you to see the full scope I'm aiming for in the series.

 

Noteworthy: This will not cover any magic that cannot be done by a human. Demonic and fae magic, for instance, will be left out. This blog cannot and will not teach you how to summon water into someone's lungs, or how to force someone to dance themselves to death, as some examples.

Colours

Everyone knows that different colours mean different things. Even if you know of something as simple as Pokemon, you have certain colours associated with certain things. In magic, this holds true and is actually very important. Today, I would like to explain the colours and associations in regards to magic.   Colours are used in various ceremonies, holidays, altars, spells, and more. Some choose to wear certain colours to help whatever they are working on, or to help them feel a certain way, or accomplish a certain goal. They have always had certain connotations and, without realizing it, many subconsciously go along with it without realizing why. Putting on red lipstick to up one's sex appeal, for instance, or painting a room yellow (or filling it with yellow decor) to feel happier.   The truth is, everything has energy. Colours have energies that people have picked up on and have thus grown to associate them with. Many people even pick a favourite colour based solely or partially on how that colour makes them feel, and not simply on how it looks!   -----------------------   RED: Red is a high-energy colour. It's frequently associated with strong emotions (love, lust, anger, eating too much hot sauce, etc.). In magic, it's frequently used in regards to much the same types of things. Love, conflict, anger, etc. However, if you're having a problem with too much hot sauce, eat a banana, drink some milk, and tone down how much you use next time.
