Date: 2015-10-05   By: Tomás Prower

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.

Date: 2015-07-20   By: Diana Rajchel
The festival of Mabon celebrated the harvest and honored an entire season of sacred, survival-ensuring work.

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
Date: 2015-03-16   By: Melanie Marquis
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.
Everyday Witchcraft
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. Here she discusses its popularity and its companion, her new book, Everyday Witchcraft: Making Time for Spirit in a Too-Busy World .

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
