Altar Design: Drafting the Plans for Manifestation
Date: 2016-02-08   By: Michael Furie
Traditionally, when performing magic, a practitioner has an altar of some sort on which to work. The altar, of course, can be anything from an elaborately carved table to a dresser top or even just a cleared section of kitchen counter. How can we make our altar design and layout maximize the power of our magical goals? Michael Furie, author of Spellcasting: Beyond the Basics, explains.
Nature Spirituality From the Ground Up: Exploring the Totemic Ecosystem
Date: 2016-01-11   By: Lupa
Most people who work with animal totems and other animal spirits don't do much with their plant, fungus, and other counterparts. There's nothing wrong with being a specialist; but, sometimes we get so tunnel-visioned on our fellow animals that we forget there's anything else out there. How can we re-connect with our full ecosystem, both locally and globally? Lupa, author of the new Nature Spirituality from the Ground Up, explains.
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 Patron Saint of LGBT Persons: 4 Ways La Santa Muerte Empowers the Tribe
Date: 2015-10-05   By: Alferian Gwydion MacLir
La Santa Muerte is the patron saint of the LGBT community. How can this be? How can a pseudo-Catholic saint who is portrayed as a female grim reaper and venerated as the Spirit of Death, herself, come to be the patron saint of LGBT persons? Tomás Prower, author of the new book La Santa Muerte: Unearthing the Magic & Mysticism of Death, explains.
Realizing the Green Witch Tarot
Date: 2015-09-28   By: Ann Moura
For author Ann Moura, the new Green Witch Tarot is a dream come true. This is a deck that speaks to her personal vision, one that distills the basic components of the Craft into a coherent whole, and which relates to the various aspects of the Goddess and the God, the Elementals, the seasons, and the energy correlations of animals and plants of Nature. Here she describes how the Green Witch Tarot came to fruition.
13 Hidden Traditions of Mabon
Date: 2015-07-20   By: Diana Rajchel
The festival of Mabon celebrated the harvest and honored an entire season of sacred, survival-ensuring work. Diana Rajchel, author of Mabon (the latest release in Llewellyn's Sabbat Essentials Series), explains the origins of the festival and provides 13 hidden traditions that may well be worth resurrecting for our own harvest celebrations.

Traditional Lughnasadh with a Modern Twist
Date: 2015-06-22   By: Melanie Marquis
As one of three annual harvest celebrations marked in the Witch's sabbat cycle, Lughnasadh doesn't seem like much of a stand-out. Unless you're tending crops on a daily basis, you're not very likely to be especially filled with excitement over the thought of the first harvest, as opposed to the second or third harvest. Melanie Marquis, author of the new Lughnasadh in Llewellyn's Sabbat Series, offers fun ways to make your Lughnasadh celebrations more modern.
5 Ways to Heal with the Wheel of the Year
Date: 2015-05-18   By: Tiffany Lazic
Most of us already feel somewhat in tune with the cycles of nature and the seasons: the urge to stay inside and sleep during the winter, the desire to celebrate during the long days of summer. But can we connect even more deeply, more holistically, with these cycles, to heal ourselves? Tiffany Lazic, author of the new The Great Work: Self-Knowledge and Healing Through the Wheel of the Year, presents 5 easy ways we can start incorporating the Wheel of the Year into a practical modality for self-understanding and healing.
Wisdom from the Trees
Date: 2015-04-20   By: Penny Billington
How wonderful it would be to live in a magical place where the world is joined-up, the sacred is apparent in the everyday world, and every living thing supports each other. Penny Billington, author of The Path of Druidry and the new Wisdom of Birch, Oak, and Yew, believes that we can, by communing with our tree friends—and that it is essential to our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health that we do.

You might have noticed New Year's Day tends to fall at different times in different cultures. For example, Chinese New Year falls in late January or February (at the new moon of their first lunar month). The Jewish New Year (aka Rosh Hashanah, or "Head of the Year") occurs in the fall, at the beginning of the seventh month of their ecclesiastical... read this article
