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 and the Wand: Dryads and Gesture in Magic
Date: 2015-12-07   By: Alferian Gwydion MacLir
The wand is one of the witch's most versatile tools, adding great power to any magic. Why are wands so powerful? How can we make them more powerful? Professional wandmaker and author of The Witch's Wand and Wandlore, Alferian Gwydion MacLir, explains.
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.
They Are Among Us
Date: 2009-11-16   By: Llewellyn
I was the lodge master of a German/American Freemason lodge in San Francisco, California. On a cold Monday night in December 1966, I had just closed the weekly meeting, and, as was my habit, I was waiting until the last lodge member had left so I could turn off the lights. One lodge brother was still present, putting on his overcoat and hat. His

Versatile, convenient, and widely available and affordable, the tarot is an excellent tool for many types of magick. While some magickal workings call for an extensive list of herbs, candles, oils, stones, and other ingredients, there are countless spells and charms that can be cast with nothing more than a single deck of tarot cards.
