    The Most Important Druid Lesson of All – The Power of the Heart     I recently went to a Sunday service where folks believe that keeping one’s mind controlled and focused on positives like peace and abundance and health can manifest such things into a living reality. Manifestation into form is the magic everyone wants to access and use for their own purposes. And while I do agree that thoughts hold some creative power, what I’ve been taught on my thirty-year druid path isn’t nearly so simple. The closest thing to manifesting anything into physical reality I’ve ever observed was during energy school in 1996, when staff healers did…

    Notes from the Apothecary

    Notes from the Apothecary: Celery     Celery (Apium Graveolens) is an easily recognisable vegetable, available in most supermarkets or grocery stores. It’s a relative of carrots and parsley, part of the apiaceae family. It’s loved by dieters thanks to its high water content and low calorie content, plus it’s amazing for dipping into hummus or salsa. But is celery a medicinal or magical plant? Let’s take a look.   The Kitchen Garden Celery can be grown from seed and in fact can be planted at this time of year (February-March-April) as long as it’s kept warm until frost has gone. It needs to be kept moist so is ideal…

    Book Review Warriors, Witches, Women Mythology’s Fiercest Females by Kate Hodge 224 Pages     Kate Hodge’s book, “Warriors, Witches, Women,” is a modern encyclopedia of powerful female archetypes from various world cultures. She divides the goddesses into five main categories: witches, warriors, bringers of misfortune, elemental spirits, and munificent spirits. Hodge re-tells stories of goddesses who are well known and introduces us to ones who are lesser known in this volume.

    Worth the Witch

      Blessed Be Box / New Moon in Aquarius   The enchanting box for the new moon in Aquarius January 24 was carefully packed with products to honor the moon cycle, empower individuals to manifest their desires, and provide support for the coming four weeks. Refreshing angelic white – representing air and the feeling of elevation – served as a sub-theme for this box. Slipping the box out of the bag, the frankincense incense, even in its package, offered a calming, uplifting scent and hinted at the magic inside.     Opening the box reveals a card showing its contents, a copy of a Temperance tarot card that can be…

    Book Review – The Healing Plants of the Celtic Druids by Angela Paine

    Book ReviewThe Healing Plants of the Celtic Druidsby Angela Paine 304 Pages   I have to be honest; this is one of those books that I found so enjoyable it was hard to figure out what to include in the review. The Healing Plants of the Celtic Druids is a book that I feel should be included in a witch’s collection of books. Mx. Paine explains in chapter 1, why she wrote this book. In this chapter, she also teaches a little bit about the ancient Celtic world, including mining, farming, trade, places of worship, the role of the Druids in ancient Celtic Britain, and ancient Celtic medicine. Mx. Paine…
