The Shaking Bed
Date: 2009-07-30   By: Llewellyn
My maternal grandfather enjoyed playing the guitar and the mandolin. As his family grew, he built them a larger home with his own two hands. He was always a self-reliant, independent sort. When he developed heart trouble, he ended his own life in a bout of depression. I was about seven or eight years old at the time of his death. When I reached my
The Spinning Basket Fortune Teller: Put Your Fetishes to Work
Date: 2008-07-21   By: Janina Renée
Over time, many of us acquire an assortment of small but delightful trinkets, such as miniature animals or other little figurines, souvenir items, toys, miniature charms, and many other gewgaws. Along with these, we may also collect natural objects such as seeds and nuts, pebbles, and shells, as well as interesting bits of beach glass or driftwood and other found articles. Oftentimes these things give us pleasure because, aside from being colorful or whimsical, they convey some special symbolism or serve as mementos. However, if you’ve just been allowing them to accumulate in a junk drawer, you can take them to a new level of use, since these objects, or fetishes, have a traditional role in divination.
The Spiritual Wisdom of Harry Potter?
Date: 2007-07-16   By: Christopher Penczak
With the seventh and final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling, being released soon, much interest is growing in the media and public concerning magick, witchcraft and wizardry. With the huge buzz brewing, one has to wonder: how real, how accurate, is the magick being presented in the Harry Potter series?
The Stanley Hotel
Date: 2013-10-07   By: Sam Queen
The Stanley Hotel was the inspiration for the "Overlook Hotel" in Stephen King's 1977 novel The Shining, and the inhabitants of the Stanley prove themselves to be inspiration for any horror novel. Sam Queen, co-author of Haunted Asylums, Prisons, and Sanatoriums, discusses his haunting experiences during a visit.
The Stephenville UFO Incident
Date: 2009-01-30   By: Vanessa Wright
As winter slowly comes to an end, it can feel like it’s taking forever for nature to arise from its catacombs of rest. This is the time of year when we eagerly await the comfort of warmer temperatures. We gaze at tree tops and inspect for any signs of life, any possible leafy sprout, heralding the green opulence to come. We are not the only ones
The Stone Cold Banishing Spell
Date: 2009-09-29   By: Janina Renée
From Llewellyn's 2009 Magical Almanac. For current-year calendars and almanacs, click here. Because the ancestor world has a mythic connection with the underworld, it is an ancient magical practice to seek the ancestors’ help in consigning one’s cares to the chthonic powers—the powers of Earth. In the care of Mother Earth,
The Story of the Tree of Life
Date: 2004-07-01   By: Rachel Pollack
Though I grew up in a modern household, my family belonged to the Orthodox branch of Judaism. We kept a kosher home, observed the major holidays, my sister and I went to Hebrew school — and yet, I never heard the word “Kabbalah.” It was not until I ...
The Subtle Energy Body: Your Passport to the Mystical Realms
Date: 2008-04-07   By: Constance Rodriguez
Have you ever walked into a room or building where the energy felt dark and heavy? Or have you been with another person and their energy felt either dark or light? Constance Rodriguez, author of Gifts of the Soul, explains about the subtle body and how to become a full expression of who you are at the level of the Soul.
The Sun
Date: 2009-08-19   By: Norma Cowie
The Sun's energy gives us warmth, light, and life. The Major Arcana card of the Sun, number nineteen, represents the same. It demonstrates to us the symbology of rebirth, growth, and progress. In numerology, "nineteen" comprises One—the beginning, newness, creation—and Nine—endings and completion. We breathe in, only to breathe
The Sun Card: Rays of Joy
Date: 2008-07-07   By: Barbara Moore
Of this card, The Sun from The Fey Tarot, Riccardo Minetti writes: "...the Sun is an Arcana that by nature is without any kind of ambiguity. It has no shadows, no veils, no half-measures. The sun represents all truths, all certainties...the joy of fullness and of security, when no doubt troubles the soul." The Sun card is filled with so much

Do you recall the first time you cast a solitary spell? A real spell. Do you remember the moment when you took power into your own hands, lit flickering candles, burned tendrils of incense, called to the corners, created sacred space, and invoked your intention to manifest in the universe? It was memorable, wasn't it? Like a teenager fumbling... read this article
