The Well-Traveled Ghost Hunter: Ghosts From Around the World
Date: 2011-08-29   By: Rich Newman
Most of us associate the term "ghosts" with the beings we have defined and known in Western culture (mainly North America, Great Britain, and Ireland). But, interestingly, ghosts are a universally-known phenomena that have been witnessed throughout the world. With Halloween approaching fast—and with it, increased attention to the spiritual world—I thought it would be fun to talk about some of the more interesting, yet lesser known, types of ghosts from all around the world. Rich Newman, ghost hunter and author of The Ghost Hunter's Field Guide and the forthcoming Ghost Hunting for Beginners, details the nuances of ghost history and lore from across the globe.
The Welsh Roots of The Llewellyn Tarot
Date: 1969-12-31   By: Anna-Marie Ferguson
Even in the bright light of our modern age, the country of Wales retains its air of mystery. It is a land of green faery valleys, mist, mountain grandeur and standing stones. It has a turbulent history that has daring heroes, poignant art and many ...
The Wicca Factor, or When I Became a Witch
Date: 2002-03-01   By: Carl Llewellyn Weschcke
When did I become a Witch? I really don?t know-or, rather, I could as well say I was born that way. No, I was not born into a Wiccan family, although parents and grandparents had largely occult and even a Pagan approach to life. My grandfather was a ...
The Wiccan Rede and the Art of Persuasion
Date: 2007-03-26   By: Arcane Static
The Wiccan Rede has the distinction of being a core tenet of the faith. The origin of this creed and its rhetorical influence are explored in an academic capacity by Arcane Static, which can help you to better understand the fundamentals of this spiritual movement.
The Witch Mania of King James I
Date: 2011-04-25   By: Donald Tyson
King James I of England came to be one of the more prominent prosecutors of "witch mania" beginning in Scotland and Denmark in 1590. Believing that persecuting witches under the law would grant him protection from their "black magick," James took on a great role in the interrogations and prosecution. His book, Demonology, was written with the aim to "educate" others on the evils of witchcraft and the supernatural. While being a difficult subject matter for many to broach, Donald Tyson has revisited this important work and made it approachable and understandable as The Demonology of King James I.
The Witch's Broom: Magic for Everyone
Date: 2014-04-07   By: Deborah Blake
Everyone knows that brooms and witches go together. And while not every witch has a cat (or a funny-looking hat, for that matter), most of us own a broom. But how many of us actually use them for our magical work? Deborah Blake, author of The Witch's Broom, explains a few of the many magical uses for the humble broom.
The World
Date: 2009-07-30   By: Deborah Blake
Le Monde (The World). Corresponding to the number Twenty-One, also to the Hebrew letter Tav. [Note: Waite’s deck places The Fool here (though this card is still numbered Twenty-one, and The Fool is still numbered Zero). In terms of correspondence to the Hebrew alphabet, inserting The Fool here is correct; Tav is the last letter of the alphabet,
The Yes-No Layout
Date: 2008-05-07   By: Llewellyn
This simple three-card layout is perfect when you are seeking a yes-now answer to a question. It is also a good way to learn how to interpret composite Tarot sentences. The layout consists of a single triplet that is read in the form of a Tarot sentence. The cards are shuffled and cut, then dealt in the layout in order. All the cards of the
THERE’S A NEW WORLD COMING – Are You Ready for It?
Date: 2008-09-29   By: Carl Llewellyn Weschcke
No, you're not. None of us ever are, no matter how hard we try. What do I mean by, "There's a New World coming?" Every year is a new beginning, as well as an ending. The start of a new calendar gives us pause and opportunity to regret all the things we did poorly in 2008, or didn’t do at all. And it gives us a chance to promise that we will do
Theurgic Meditation
Date: 2015-08-10   By: Patrick Dunn
When we think of meditation, we tend to think of Eastern meditation techniques. Many are familiar with zazen, for example—sitting, attending to the breath, and bringing the mind back from stray thoughts. But what about Western meditation practices? How are these different? Are they as powerful? Patrick Dunn, author of the new Practical Art of Divine Magic, maps out a powerful, theurgic meditation on beauty designed to bring us closer to the divine.

A few years ago, my youngest son was arguing with his friend about the age of Honey, our wild golden retriever. His friend insisted that Honey was five, because the dog had been alive that many years. Said Gabe, "Sometimes Honey is really one, like when he chews our shoes; sometimes he's 89, like when he pretends he's too old to listen when you... read this article
