30 Brujas That You Need to Follow on Instagram

Through the ages, brujas have gotten a bad rap — to say the least. Luckily many of the myths and terrible stereotypes are starting to die off with the accessibility of social media. And while there might never be total mainstream acceptance — people are finally able to see that being bad and bruja isn’t necessarily what they thought it was.

Far from the images of white women dancing naked in the woods and getting burned at the stake by people in tacky outfits, today’s IG brujas are fly chingonas breaking stereotypes, as well as boundaries. These women are more than just a lot of hocus-pocus. They have Ph.D’s, they do dietary work, they align chakras, they inspire us with their energetic readings and their musings about life, health, and healing. But more importantly, they teach us to embrace, heal or even radically change things about ourselves through their work.

@AlchemyOrganica

A lot of us think of food as healing, as medicine, but how many of us think of food as brujeria? Food bruja Chef Denise Vallejo has spent more than 20 years studying astrology, curanderismo, alchemy, and shamanism and now she’s making it edible. Her vegan menu is aimed at decolonizing, liberating and healing intergenerational trauma. She also uses her intuitive abilities to create her dishes. Something she calls “Astro Gastronomy” where she creates a menu inspired by the Zodiac sign of the season.

Jessyka Winston @HausOfHoodoo

This New Orleans brujia is known for her shop Haus of Hoodoo. Winston is a rootworker, a Hoodoo Practitioner, and a Vodoun Priestess. She spends a lot of time on IG talking about and demystifying the bruja life. She’ll teach you about the differences between Hoodoo, Voodoo, and Vodoun, as well as the trials and tribulations of living the spiritual life. There are also plenty of life lessons sprinkled in. She is most known for her candles that are always sold out, due to popular demand.

@luna_lunera333

In the movies witches can pretty much conjur up any kind of spell, but in the real world most have a specialty. There are however, gifted brujas that work with different elements and trades. @luna_lunera333 is a bruja of all trades. She does tarot readings, astrology, plant medicine, and makes her own natural body products. She sells her wares exclusively on Instagram. Whether you want moisturized firm skin, a dressed candle, or you’re looking for a tarot reading you’ve come to the right place.

Valeria Ruelas @TheMexicanWitch

Valeria the Mexican Witch is an eclectic magick practitioner, meaning she hasn’t subscribed to just one mode of divination. She is known for her Walk-and-Talks as she makes her way all over the city of New Orleans as well as her energetic readings. She’s also an outspoken queer brujix and advocates for the LGBT+ community within and outside of the brujix community. You’ll get lots of inspiration and probably feel personally attacked by her accuracy at times. She is also a devotee of La Santisima Muerte and spends a lot of time debunking the spooky myths we’ve heard about her.

@LaLobaLocaShares

Something not typically associated with stereotypical images of brujeria are the use and ritual cultivation of certain plants. However, it is a huge part of many practices since plants and natural elements are always used in one way or another. La Loba Loca is a Los Angeles based queer Andian herbalist, speaker, and educator. This plant-based Brujx will inspire you to get out and grow something. They’ll also get you thinking differently about gender, the food you eat and destroying the patriarchy. Loba does consultations, teaches classes, and sells feminist merch.

While many brujas choose to find their own way in their mysticism others gravitate toward religions like Vodun, Candomble, and Santeria. While those are technically applied religions rather than “witchcraft,” calling themselves brujas has become sort of an inside joke based on what non-practitioners and non-believers call them. Ṣangó priestess Aurelis Troncoso’s insta feed is comprised almost entirely of tarot readings. She offers a combination of practical advice, rituals, and life lessons.
