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.
May Bush and Wishing Tree Magick for Beltane

With its focus on fun and frivolity, it's no wonder Beltane is one of the most festive Sabbats of the year for many modern Pagans. Held each year on or around May 1st, Beltane is a celebration of vitality, fertility, strength, and growth reflecting a blending of many traditions. Here, Beltane author Melanie Marquis provides ideas for May Trees and other ways to celebrate this sacred day.

Date: 2015-03-02   By: Deborah Blake
Deborah Blake has written a number of books over the years, but far and away the most popular one was the third, The Goddess Is in the Details; it recently went back for a sixth printing.

The Magic of Stars
Date: 2015-02-16   By: Sandra Kynes
The idea of using the stars for magic and ritual is not new, so why aren't more of us harnessing the power of the constellations in our magic and rituals? Sandra Kynes, author of the new Star Magic, presents an exploration of the night sky along with a new interpretation of the constellations that is relevant for twenty-first century Pagans and Wiccans.
Brighten Your Ostara by Bringing Balance to Your Life
Date: 2015-01-12   By: Kerri Connor
While it is often the simple things that get us through life and help us to change our perspective, it is also true that the simple things are really easy to forget. We forget to play. We forget to be happy. We forget to love. What's more, we often don't even realize that we forget to do these things! This year, use these ideas from Ostara author Kerri Connor to rejuvenate and balance your emotions, finding new joy in the process.

Alexandra Chauran, author of the new How to Talk to Me After I'm Gone, explains the beauty—and benefits—of creating a plan for spirit communication, and proposes that it become a topic of Pagan activism.

When I was doing research for my new book, Ghosts of Lincoln, I found a particularly delightful tale in several collections.
