The Rainbow Connection: Crystals and Color
Date: 2008-07-22   By: Corrine Kenner
You can tell a lot about a crystal by its color and the magical way that a crystal interacts with light. In fact, color may be the single most important factor you will need to know in order to work with crystals. Since the 1900s, when Isaac Newton used a prism to split sunlight into a rainbow of colors, scientists have recognized that light is
The Real Origins of Magic and Paganism
Date: 2003-11-01   By: John Michael Greer
Through a crisis in my own magical training, I developed The New Encyclopedia of the Occult. Like many people, I came to the world of occultism with a head full of romantic legends about magic, and the books and teachings I encountered did nothing ...
The Real Scoop on Digging in the Dirt
Date: 2008-04-14   By: Dorothy Morrison
As silly as it may sound, there's something both magical and therapeutic about plunging your hands into the soil. First of all, it reaffirms your link with the Earth and increases your capacity for walking between the worlds equally. It also provides a link to the collective consciousness of everyone who has ever tread that piece of ground. Just as important, though, it stabilizes the psyche and allows you to see everything in a new light—a brighter light—a light in which solutions are found, problems are solved, and fresh starts abound. And after the dormancy of Winter, that's something we can all use. Dorothy Morrison, author of Bud, Blossom, & Leaf, shares gardening rituals for affirmation and growth.
The Relaxation Ritual
Date: 2010-03-29   By: Llewellyn
STEP ONE. Sit or lay in a place where you will not be disturbed for at least five minutes. Remember to unplug the telephone. Get comfortable. If you are sitting, your back should be straight. Whether sitting or lying down, your legs and arms should not be crossed. If sitting, rest your hands, palms down, in your lap. Your eyes should be
The Resolution Will Not Be Televised
Date: 2008-07-16   By: Carry Obry
“See how Janus appears first in my song to announce a happy year for you.”—OvidIt’s January again, dear reader. What does this mean to you? Do you eagerly create resolutions to ring in a year of growth and change, or do you detach yourself from this silly pursuit, knowing that there is nothing special about January 1st that makes it any easier?
The Retirement Ritual: The Inner Relationship with the Holy Guardian Angel
Date: 2010-08-13   By: Carl Llewellyn Weschcke
Instructions for the Magickal Retirement You must first learn this ritual by memory so that you can speak the words and perform the gestures freely and without hesitation of memory.

The Return of Intuition
Date: 2010-08-02   By: Kathryn Harwig
All children are intuitive when born, with a natural and inborn sense of who to trust and what is real. But by about the age of seven, pressure from society forces children to forgo the world as they see it (with auras around people and fantastic creatures walking right beside ordinary folk) for what is considered "reality" by the rest of the world. If we are born with these intuitive gifts, is it possible to reclaim them? Kathryn Harwig, author of The Return of Intuition, argues that not only can we reclaim our intuitive gifts as we age, but that this reclamation is happening more and more frequently as the Baby Boomer generation ages.
The Sacred Soil
Date: 2008-10-15   By: Clea Danaan
The soil is a vast kingdom beneath our feet, home to giant and minute earthworms, billions of bacteria and micro-organisms, spiders and ants, and wise, ancient stones. Rich black, sandy red, or pale and gritty, it is in the soil that life on land begins. But not all soil is the same—far from it. The first step to getting to know a garden is to
The Sallie House Haunting: Physical Manifestations of Non-Physical Forces
Date: 2010-08-09   By: Debra Lyn Pickman
Have you ever seen The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror, or other movies of that nature? Now imagine putting yourself in those roles and ask yourself, “How would I survive? Who would I turn to and trust with my deepest concerns and fears? Who, if anyone, would stand beside me through it all?” Growing up, Debra Lyn Pickman was always interested in the paranormal, and hoped to one day have an experience of her own. This turned out to be a case of "be careful for what you wish for." Until she and her family moved into the Sallie House, she had no idea that evil could physically reach out from another realm, draw blood, and jeopardize your belief system and the safety of your family. Here she recounts the terror that beheld her family for years.  
The Satellite Meditation To Reconcile Oneself to Others
Date: 2008-10-06   By: Edwige Gilbert
Imagine now that you are a satellite. As a satellite, you are both a receiver of energy and a transmitter of energy. The energy you send and receive travels around the globe. You are, in fact, an integral part of a much larger human energy transmission system. You are broadcasting at all times, day and night, whether you are aware of it or not.

The mighty dead, divination, and portals to other worlds… there are so many places to celebrate Samhain in the northeastern United States… The cooler weather, the colorful leaves, and, as the memes say, "Pumpkin everything!" Like so many witches, autumn is my favorite season, and Samhain, my favorite Sabbat. As a child I loved... read this article
