Author Information

Edain McCoy
Edain McCoy
Edain became a self-initiated Witch in 1981 and has been an active part of the Pagan community since her formal initiation into a large San Antonio coven in 1983.  Edain has researched alternative spiritualities since her teens, when she was first introduced to Kaballah, or Jewish mysticism.  Since that time, she has studied a variety of magickal paths including Celtic, Appalachian folk magick, and Curanderismo, a Mexican-American folk tradition.  Today, Edain is part of the Wittan Irish Pagan tradition, where she is a priestess of Brighid and an elder.  

An alumnus of the University of Texas with a BA in history, she is affiliated with several professional writer's organizations and occasionally presents workshops on magickal topics or works individually with students who wish to study Witchcraft.

This former woodwind player for the Lynchburg (VA) Symphony claims both the infamous feuding McCoy family of Kentucky and Sir Roger Williams, the seventeeth-century religious dissenter, as branches on her ethnically diverse family tree.  In her "real life," Edain works as a licensed stockbroker.

Edain is the author of fifteen books, including Bewitchments; Enchantments; and her most recent release, Ostara: Customs, Spells & Rituals for the Rites of Spring.

While the Yule Log is smoldering in the fireplace, warming your house with its golden glow, casting dancing shadows on a sparkling Yule tree, the scene might not immediately evoke images of faeries. It should, however. Author Edain McCoy details just how these spritely guardians do not all hibernate in winter, and how they should be honored during these chilly months of warm celebration.

You can host a Samhain party whether or not you have pagan friends. In her book Sabbats, author Edain McCoy provides some great tips on how to host a Samhain party. Avoid creepy séances, evil hags, and other negative images. These do not promote the truth about witches and pagans. Divinations are a great way to get people involved, even those who don’t take it seriously. Have someone skilled...

The second wheel of the year is made up of thirteen lunar cycles occurring within the solar year—called “esbats” by Pagans. Covens usually meet either on the full or the new moon and a few manage both. Solitary practitioners are urged to commemorate the moon’s journey through the sky at both times, but the merrymaking and festival night has always been that of the full moon. Never forget that the...

Ostara, that magical time of renewal and balance, is just around the corner. Use this magical time for personal recreation, and to become the person you truly desire to be.

For this ritual you will need two small chalices or cups of water or wine, and if you’re working indoors, you will need two bowls in which to pour the liquid. You will also need two candles and some matches. A ritual blade or wand is optional. Place these items on a small altar, table, or other flat surface. In a pinch I’ve used the stereo. At other times I’ve no trouble using a flat rock or...

In Mexico and the American southwest, there is a beautiful Easter custom, also pagan in origin, revolving around cascarones. Cascarones (cahs-cah-roe-nays) are eggshells that have been carefully hallowed out, painted, filled, and then resealed with tape. Traditional fillings for them include perfume, confetti, lavender, and sage—all pagan symbols of spring. The cascarones are taken out on Easter...

The Wheel of the Year is often symbolized by the wreath. Its circle has no beginning and no end, thus illustrating that the Wheel of the Year is also like this, with everything in its time coming back to its point of origin and traveling onward, over and over again.Though they can be bought ready-made, enjoy some Yule fun by making your own unique Yule wreath out of wire, pinecones, and...

The autumnal equinox as well as what we now call the first of August have both been celebrated as festival days of the harvest season across Europe and North America. As August first approaches, we must reflect on what what these harvest celebrations mean and what they mean to us.

After I completed the manuscript for Advanced Witchcraft I was scheduled to write a book on past-life and karmic tarot. I wrote it, but I fought distractions during the entire creation of that manuscript. I kept thinking about all those seekers on ...
