Date: 2014-03-19   By: Ellen Dugan
If your cat is scheduled for surgery or is recovering from an illness, try the following spell. If possible, try and schedule surgery during a waning moon phase.

A Labor of Love
Date: 2004-09-01   By: Ciro Marchetti
When I was first contacted by Llewellyn with the proposal of creating a tarot deck, I was immediately enthusiastic about the idea. There were, after all, many themes in common with my personal illustration work. However, even though Barbara Moore ...

Date: 2003-01-01   By: Jenny Crawford

A Light in the Darkness: The Light Personal Names Shed on Ancient Paganism
Date: 2011-12-19   By: K.M. Sheard
Names. We all have them. They are so integral to our society that few people ever pause to reflect on their cultural significance and what they reveal about our way of life. But even today, naming practices vary considerably across the world. And the naming practices of our ancestors were equally diverse. And, what’s more, they offer us a unique window through which to glimpse their lives, how they lived, and what they believed. What do the names of our Pagan predecessors reveal about their way of lif? K.M. Sheard, author of Llewellyn's Complete Book of Names, explains.
A Link Between Power and Image
Date: 2013-02-04   By: Lexa Olick
Over recent years, we have seen great strides in digital technology, and many of our digital devices double as cameras. But, many of our photos taken may never again be viewed. Is it possible to regain the power the photograph once held, in magic and in mundane life? Lexa Olick, author of Witchy Crafts, explains the link between power and image.
A Little Piece of Sandpaper
Date: 2008-07-16   By: Donald Michael Kraig
You’ve seen it in old movies: A safecracker takes out a small piece of sandpaper and roughs up the skin of his fingertips so he can more easily detect the movement of the tumblers in the lock. The goal is to open the safe and get some form of treasure. In this column I’m going to be a piece of sandpaper. I’d like to open a lock that might lead
A Little Taste of Miracle
Date: 2009-03-02   By: Clea Danaan
As omnivores living busy lives, we often grapple with where to get our food. Fresh versus fast? Local versus cheap? Organic versus free range? Clea Danaan, author of Voices of the Earth and Sacred Land suggests that we return to gardening ourselves, not simply for the production of our food, but because gardening heals us and returns us to the miracle of life, reminding us that we are in a relationship with the Earth, with whom we co-create life.
A Lughnasadh Tarot Ritual
Date: 2009-08-20   By: Yasmine Galenorn
Lughnasadh marks the first of the three harvests: the Grain Harvest of Lughnasadh, the Harvest of Fruits at Mabon, and the Harvest of Game at Samhain. Ancient peoples celebrated Lughnasadh as a time of great happiness, enjoying the gifts of the earth. Yet the harvest also began the waning half of the year, when it became time to stock up for
A Magical Meditation for Lovers
Date: 2004-07-26   By: Yasmine Galenorn
The meditative state is our natural state. When we reach this state, we recognize what lies at the root of all our experiences, and we become fully aware. Meditation awakens the fundamental and innate intelligence of being - the light of our spirit ...
A May Eve Incantation
Date: 2006-04-25   By: Timothy Roderick
Beltane, or May Eve, is one of the most important holidays in the pagan year. It is seen oftentimes as equal to Samhain, its opposite festival in the calendar, as both days are noted for the thinning of the veil that separates this world from the otherworld. However, where Samhain celebrates death, Beltane celebrates life and growth, manifested this time of year by fruit and flower. The hallmark of Beltane is fertility, and it is said that in ancient times peasants would light Beltane bonfires and make love in the fields to promote a good growing season through sympathetic magic. However, Beltane isn't only about sexual union, but rather the union of all opposites, and the new things that are created through that union. To get in touch with the fertile flavor of the season, try this simple incantation from Timothy Roderick's

For many of us, travel is the spice of life. The comfort and security of home are important, but the unfamiliar stirs the soul. Travel in the physical world offers insight, freedom, and expansion. Travel within—the journey of the spirit—provides the same, especially when exploring past lives. Think about it. Whether you travel without or... read this article
