embrace your Inner Granny

We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams . . .
We don't care, we ain't caught up in your love affair

~ Royals by Lorde
I've got a favorite fictional witch from Terry Pratchett's Discworld series: Granny Weatherwax. She is a witch of little nonsense and big power, but not in a way one might expect. In fact, my most favorite aspect of Granny Weatherwax is Headology. Because she doesn't really like to use magic, she'd rather see you figure it out yourself. And that's part of her magic. Very sensible, really.

Our Mother of Fire is a practical witch of sorts. She's busy drumming up and channeling the proper energies to get things done today. She's on fire with what needs doing. There's no room for baby sitting other people's issues or problems. (But if you're really in a pinch, she'll be there. Like magic.) Our Mother of Fire is certain you're able to work this all out and she ain't caught up in your love affair. She's got her own kettle of fish to fry.

It seems a selfish aspect. However, there is some method in it. Sometimes, you don't really need help. Sometimes, it would indeed more helpful if you work it all out yourself. Then you've learned something, haven't you? You've gotten through a sticky situation on your own "magic." Maybe you will have learned to say No when a similar thing comes down the pike. See? Headology.
