    Worth the Witch

    Metaphysical Monthly Mystery Box: Crystal Healing and Balance     Legion of Lightworkers’ first Metaphysical Monthly Mystery Box box featured Crystal Healing and Balance.

The book is separated into nine (9) chapters and flows from the more common ritual uses to those that clearly exemplify the concept that all acts are sacred and all markers of those actions can be celebrated and honored in a way befitting living a magickal life…

      Review of Behind You   Bright Blessings, film lovers! I am reviewing yet another horror film! My favorite genre! This one was not as fun as some others I have reviewed, but it’s still a good film to discuss magical topics. It’s called Behind You, and here is a trailer to watch! The 2020 film follows sisters Olivia and Claire, whose mom has just died. They are brought to stay with their Aunt Beth, who they don’t know, while people try to reach their father. Right off the bat, their Aunt informs them they are not welcome, and it turns out she has good reason for this. While Aunt…

    Book Review – Practically Pagan: An Alternative Guide to Health & Well-Being by Irisanya Moon

    Book Review Practically Pagan An Alternative Guide to Health & Well-Being by Irisanya Moon Moon Books 160 Pages   I have always been a practical person, possessing a sense of self-preservation that has allowed me to live for over sixty years in relatively good health. When I saw this book, I was quite naturally intrigued. I expected to read about holistic ways of keeping oneself hale and hearty in body and mind and spirit, and I wasn’t disappointed in that at all. Practically Pagan: An Alternative Guide to Health & Wellbeing certainly delivers. The thing is – there isn’t very much about it that’s pagan. No mention of gods or…

    Witch Hunt

      There are witches all around us. You can find them anywhere… The Witch on Wheels has been documenting her findings.   Meet Diane Hasz   Diane is a gatherer of goddesswomen. I met her more than a decade ago when we were both original members of a Dianic coven. The purple streak she put in her raven hair convinced me wild hair colors were not just for my daughter’s generation. Her roadtrips that began after the death of her husband added to my inspiration for this trip.  Diane has and will always be a gatherer of women seeking their path. She began a Facebook group of goddesswomen to meet…

    Book Review – Spark Magic: 50 Ways to Find Your Power by Chronicle Books

    Book Review Spark Magic 50 Ways to Find Your Power by Chronicle Books Chronicle Books 50 cardboard matchsticks     “Spark Magic” isn’t a book, but an odd little novelty item intended to inspire the imagination. Although it might have easily been a deck of cards or a book of suggestions, “Spark Magic” comes in the form of a box of fifty cardboard sticks shaped like matches that don’t light, but instead, have short, pithy suggestions for introducing and manifesting magic in your life. The design and execution of the box is charming and shiny, and suggests something mystical inside; the matches themselves are cute and well-made.   The suggestions…

    DVD Review – Mythic Journeys Directed & Written by Steven Boe and Whitney Boe

    DVD Review Mythic Journeys Directed & Written by Steven Boe and Whitney Boe Stars Mark Hamill, Tim Curry, Lance Henriksen Imaginal Cells FilmWorks 1h 33min     “Mythic Journeys” is an odd movie: half documentary, half claymation mythical narrative, this film explores all sorts of mythical narratives, and the role of mythology in modern media and society. It explores these themes by contemplating the hero’s journey in many different cultural traditions and speaking to many different mythologists, paying homage to Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung along the way. It feels a bit like two different movies, as it goes back and forth between documentary material that includes interviews with Deepak…

    Room on the Broom Bright Blessings, film lovers! If you are like me- you love a good cartoon. Well, this was just too cute to resist. Room on the Broom is a short cartoon film based on the children’s book with the same title, written by Julia Donaldson. It was originally released by BBC One in 2012, then again in 2013. Voiced by some of Britain’s most famous stars, including Gillian Anderson, Timothy Spall, and David Walliams, the film is inspiring, heartwarming, and fun. More than this, it teaches a lesson to all people, not just magical practitioners should heed. Here is a trailer to watch:     The story…
