On Wings of Change: The Dragon in Celtic Magic
Date: 2014-08-04   By: Kristoffer Hughes
In Celtic magic, the true significance of the dragon is subtle, and they are not simply the enormous fire breathing beasts that we have been led to believe; they are so much more than their fictionalized expression.

Ceremonial Magick: Reuniting Yourself with the Natural World
Date: 2014-07-21   By: Gregory Peters
In western ceremonial magick, there is often a tendency to view a magickal operation as something that is at odds with the natural order of the universe. The special robe, the implements, the prayers and orations and conjurations…all of this and more has the effect of isolating the individual from the rest of the universe. Is there a way to change this mindset and re-integrate ourselves to the natural world—and perhaps make our magick more powerful in the process? Gregory Peters, author of the new Magickal Union of the East and West, explains.

Date: 2014-06-30   By: Jean-Louis de Biasi
For centuries, the ancient Western Mysteries have been transmitted through rituals called initiations. What are magical initiations?

Lupa, author of the new Plant and Fungus Totems, presents five ways we can honor our plant and fungi friends while still interacting with them.

Mystical Cats Tarot
Date: 2014-05-26   By: Barbara Moore
Cats are a popular theme for tarot and oracle decks, and for good reason. For centuries cats have been associated with religion, spirituality, and mysticism. Today, cats are much loved, as companions and as symbols of independence and a lack of concern for the opinions of others. We fancy that this spirit is born of an inner confidence that knows exactly what it wants and the best ways to achieve while maintaining a sense of nobility. In many ways, cats are metaphoric role models. Here, tarot expert Barbara Moore discusses the "purr-ks" of using the Mystical Cats Tarot.
