Shopping for the Magickal Amid the Mundane
Date: 2011-06-24   By: Blake Octavian Blair
If you’re lucky enough to live within a reasonable distance of a metaphysical, New Age, or occult shop, you may not give a second thought as to where you can obtain your witchy supplies. However, I often find myself in conversation with those not lucky enough to be near such a store, and they express frustration and exasperation about where they are ever going to find that much-sought-after ritual supply or spell ingredient. In this day and age, of course, there are a myriad of websites and online shops; however, it is also a good idea to try balancing Internet resources with supporting your community’s economy by shopping locally. In reality, the answer to your magickal needs may be closer than you think.
Egyptian Prosperity Magic for Beginners
Date: 2011-07-04   By: Claudia R. Dillaire
The ancient Egyptians had a different spin on prosperity, and it requires a change in thinking. Prosperity was not individual, though they did have upper and lower classes. Prosperity was agriculturally-based, so if the crops thrived, everyone benefited; if they failed, it affected everyone. Knowing this, how can a modern practitioner approach Egyptian prosperity magic? Claudia Dillaire, author of Egyptian Prosperity Magic, explains.
Creating Ceremony
Date: 2011-07-25   By: Katalin Koda
For thousands of years, human beings have honored our connection to the earth, seasons, and major life transitions through ceremony, ritual, and storytelling. These practices are the sacred technology of indigenous people and are an inherent part of our past and ancestral wisdom. In these current times of disconnection, feelings of lack and poverty, and polluted air and waters, the importance of creating ceremony is becoming more apparent. Katalin Koda, author of Fire of the Goddess and Sacred Path of Reiki, provides easy ways to create your own ceremony so that we too can reconnect with the earth, empower ourselves, heal, and transform into more balanced humans.
Awaken the Druid Within!
Date: 2011-08-01   By: Penny Billington
In our daily lives, most of us are aware of a yearning to "Otherness:" an insistent pull to an ephemeral "something," which could make us dissatisfied with the world of the five senses. We feel instinctively that, "There is more than this." And, in our urge for connection to that mysterious "something," we start to look around. Some look up, some look down; many look away from their everyday lives. Druids look around, to the green and natural world around us. So how does one embrace the Druidic life? Penny Billington, author of The Path of Druidry, explains how to awaken the Druid within.
Did You Miss Something? Qabalah Versus Hermeticism
Date: 2011-08-15   By: Jean-Louis de Biasi
For many centuries the Western Tradition seems to have become reduced to teaching only one aspect of the tradition: Hebrew Qabalah. But is Hebrew Qabalah truly the result of magical evolution, or has it resulted by mistake? Jean-Louis de Biasi, author of The Divine Arcana of the Aurum Solis, explains how "Hermetic Qabalah" provides more balance and stability than Hebrew Qabalah.
Everyday Kundalini: Divine Energy, Divine Light
Date: 2011-07-21   By: Cyndi Dale
Envision a world in which exhaustion, overwork, heartbreak, illness, or even a down day could be solved as easily as we insert a battery into a toy. Imagine how many dreams would become reality, and wishes, celebrations, if a renewable source of energy really existed, battery-operated pack or not. Well there is a reservoir of personal power and it is available to each of us, especially if we know how to call, cultivate, and create with it. Author Cyndi Dale explains.
Creating The Gaian Tarot
Date: 2011-09-05   By: Cyndi Dale
The Gaian Tarot was a long time, nine years, in the making, and arose from the seeds of earthly love. Here artist Joanna Powell Colbert describes the birth of the Gaian Tarot and the impact it is having on readers—and herself.
On Wings Everywhere Ascending: The Relevance of Dragons in the Modern World
Date: 2011-09-26   By: Shawn MacKenzie
In the simpler times of long ago, our ancestors struck flint to tinder and, with deer on the spit and wolf cubs at their feet, watched shadow monsters dance across cave walls. They knew Dragons intimately and held them close. How could they not? With primordial majesty, Dragons ruled earth, sea, and sky. They were reminders of the danger beyond the firelight, the world beyond comprehension. They were Awe personified, revered for their wisdom and at-one-ment with the Universe, dreaded for their strength and elemental energy. But what about the importance of Dragons in today's society? Shawn MacKenzie, author of The Dragon-Keeper's Handbook, explains just how truly relevant Dragons are to us.
Tarot: The Lo Shu Magic Square Spread
Date: 2011-10-10   By: Josephine Ellershaw
A number of similarities exist between Tarot and Eastern philosophy, such as polarity or the force of opposites that we face on the path toward integration. Polarities and their integration towards wholeness is a recurring theme worldwide in various philosophies, as we seek to find our balanced position within the universe. Josephine Ellershaw, author of Easy Tarot Reading, merges these two paths with the Lo Shu Magic Square Tarot spread.
Exercise: Create a Symbolic Seed-Planting Tradition in the Fall
Date: 2011-10-19   By: Llewellyn

In my new book, How to Survive Mercury Retrograde (And Venus & Mars, Too), I emphasize that a retrograde planet can be used productively. A planet does not have to be moving in direct motion to get positive results. The backward motion of a planet through an astrological sign gets us to be more reflective and does, to some degree, slow down... read this article
