The Witch's Crown: Sovereignty, Power, and the Faery Tradition
Date: 2017-01-09
Among the kaleidoscope of practices and philosophies that shape the diverse form of witchcraft known as Faery, a popular saying arises again and again that describes what very well may be the singular heart of the tradition: "A witch bows to no one." It is offered as both advice and meditative device, the sentiment being one of claiming and protecting one's personal power and fully embracing one's own divine authority. Storm Faerywolf, author of Betwixt & Between, provides insight into the Faery tradition as well as the Witch's Crown exercise for embracing your personal power.

Birds: Our Spiritual and Magical Allies
Date: 2016-08-22   By: Sandra Kynes
Because birds seem so common and exist everywhere, we often take them for granted and even consider them part of the landscape. However, these wonderful creatures can provide us with a simple yet powerful way to stay in tune with the natural world and its seasonal markers. In addition to maintaining this connection, birds can help us access different levels of energy and awareness no matter where we are, even in the concrete canyons of Manhattan. Here, Bird Magic author Sandra Kynes explains why birds are such powerful magical allies.

Date: 2016-07-11   By: Devin Hunter
The Witch Power isn't something that we just discovered; it has been with humanity since the dawn of our species, and so we don't have to look too far in order to find it. With a little dedication and an open and honest mind you can start to retrain and refocus this power so that it is always working in your favor and always bringing you to the end of your desire. Devin Hunter, author of the new Witch's Book of Power, provides seven ways we can feed our Witch Power.

Date: 2016-06-13   By: Denny Sargent
Werewolves continue to capture the imagination, as they have for literally thousands of years. From where do these figures originate? And how do you become one? Denny and Sophia Sargent, authors of the new Book of Dog Magic, delve into the history and mythology of werewolves, and find that they may actually be connected to the Horned God.
Remaining Magickal in the Midst of Chaos
Date: 2016-05-16   By: Melanie Marquis
As humans, it's hard to not drown in the chaos that builds from accumulated stresses big and small. It's hard to not feel overwhelmed when faced with a million tasks, responsibilities, and expectations that don't exactly call to our highest potentials or truest desires. But how can a person make magick when feeling so mediocre? Melanie Marquis, co-author of the new Witchy Mama, provides tips to help us remain magickal in the midst of chaos.
The Politics of Divinity
Date: 2016-03-21   By: J. A. Kent PhD

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.

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.

If one thing has been sacred to our species since time immemorial, it is our trees. Dwelling between the realms of earth and sky, we humans are beings of both worlds, and our very life is a balance and synthesis of form and spirit, below and above. What more appropriate symbol for this could there be than a tree, rooted in the earth, and... read this article
