    Celebrating the Old Ways in New Times First Edition

    Bright Blessings! Those who have been following my articles know I was prepping to move, right? Thus I did not plant a garden like I usually do, and I even removed perennials, pots, a large raised bed, and gave it all to friends! Well…the pandemic hit, my husband’s hours were cut at work, and while we are making ends meet, it’s just not a great time to buy property for us. I have no idea how long we will be here. I missed an entire year of gardening thanks to this. Don’t get me wrong, I planted zinnias, like always, and I have a couple of potted mums outside with…

    Inside the Heart of Darkness

    As we move into the darkest time of the year, the human mind takes an inevitable turn towards more negative thoughts and emotions. One of the biggest myths of today’s society is depression. An entire society is forced to ignore their own needs and desires and trade them in for soul crushing indentured servitude; our very thoughts imprisoned by various belief systems. A legal system that imprisons a human being for doing with their own bodies what they will. A society of brainwashed sheep trained to trample any hint of free thinking. All of life has become a prison, where every man, woman and child is reduced to a mere…

    ‘Elemental Magick’ Book Excerpt from Year of the Witch by Temperance Alden

      Elemental Magick What is elemental magick, and why is it relevant to intuitive witchcraft? In a nutshell, elemental magick works with and calls on the elements to manifest specific outcomes and goals. There’s not a single person who goes through their day without experiencing any of the elements. We may walk outside in the morning and feel a breeze, go for a walk and sense the heat of the sun on our skin. We could water our plants, or choose to compost/recycle. All of these experiences are simple ways that we experience (and sometimes take for granted) the elements, often without much pause. On the most basic level, we…

    Witch Hunt

      There are witches all around us. You can find them anywhere… The Witch on Wheels has been documenting her findings.   Meet Sinix O’Dair   I met Denis years ago at a pagan discussion group for LGBTQ genuinely kind – kind enough to help this “grandwitch” with computer problems and not to laugh at the shocked look I gave him upon learning he does not cleanse magical items that come into his possession, but rather works with the energy they possess. Be it rhyming a blessing or renovating a multi-family home, he relishes a challenge and his accomplishments never cease to amaze. 1. Do you have a magical name…

    WitchCrafting: Crafts for Witches

    WitchCrafting: Crafts for Witches – Travel Shrine     Merry meet. Decades ago, while studying the Kabbala, I made a personal connection to Archangel Raphael. Recently, synchronicity brought him to my attention repeatedly until I got the hint and began calling on him again. We often meet in the same place we once did. Now I realize the old stone cottage on the side of a mountain, deep in the forest is that of a hedge witch – me – and he is helping me to heal myself and others as he watches over my travels.   To honor him I wanted to make a small shrine that had a…

    Book Review – Strix Craft: Ancient Greek Magic for the Modern Witch by Oracle Hekataios

    Book Review Strix Craft Ancient Greek Magic for the Modern Witch by Oracle Hekataios Llewellyn Publications 310 Pages     I am the first to admit that I don’t know much about the different paths of Witchcraft or Wicca. I am eclectic; in that, I do what the Deities ask me to do. But they don’t require that I follow a specific layout in my worship. Strix Craft helped me understand why some people follow particular standards in their worship of the God/dess they work with and worship. In chapter one, the author, Oracle Hekataios, goes into detail about the different magics practiced and taught in Ancient Greece, especially in…
