I designed this spell for myself when I was under the deadline gun to finish this very book. It was early December, and the completed manuscript was due in mid-February. My nerves were shot, as I was constantly interrupted by phone calls, errands, my kids coming home from college, decorating for Yule, and my other family commitments, not to mention trying to find time to shop for Yule...

According to feng shui traditions, these plant and flower colors encourage the following emotions. You will notice, however, that these are almost identical to the traditional color correspondences of the Witch and the magickal practitioner. Black: enigma, enchantment Blue: peace, healing, relaxation Cobalt Blue: connecting to a higher purpose Green: growth, prosperity, tranquility Light Green:...

Herbs that are grown indoors add fresh aroma to your home, and because they are so close at hand, they encourage you to make use of them for seasonings and in food preparation. Basically, indoor-grown herbs require a sunny growing area (five to six hours of sunlight per day), water, and humidity. They will need protection from cold drafts and extreme temperatures. Also, turn your pots...

Looking for something outdoorsy to do this Beltane? (Something that doesn’t involve running around in the fields with randy strangers, that is?) How about turning your attention to your garden? May is a magickal time for gardens; Beltane is a fertility festival after all, and this is the time of year when gardens really start to exhibit that trait. Many people believe that, as with Samhain, the...

Growing a sacred garden can be a delight, but when leaves wither and plants begin to die, feelings of hopelessness and disappointment emerge. Such desperation can make chemical fertilizers tempting, but often, all that's needed in the garden is a little magic. With each growing season, we have a fresh opportunity to improve our skills as both gardener and Witch. Melanie Harris offers tips on how to use the Tarot to improve the garden of any green-thumbed witch.

New Moon to First Quarter Moon This first quarter moon phase occurs between the new moon and the seven days following. This moon rises in the morning and the crescent moon is seen as a thin curve in the western sky after sunset. Each night, the moon gains dimension and appears higher in the western sky, as the moon moves farther along into the phase. Plant above-ground crops such as lettuce,...

Midsummer, or the summer solstice is on or around June 21, the longest day of the year and the shortest night. Decorating ideas are seashells and starfish arranged across your altar or mantle. You could really be subtle and go Americana—use architectural stars and folk art in country colors of blues and reds. Midsummer is celebrated at my house by barbecuing, going to the pool, camping, or the...

Too often, gardeners look at shade as a problem rather than an asset. This happens often in herbalism because many well-known plants come from the Mediterranean and grow in full sunlight. However, many herbs thrive in lower light conditions, and some need protection from fierce sun, particularly in hot climates.Also, most yard and garden spaces have a mix of different light availability. My...

As silly as it may sound, there's something both magical and therapeutic about plunging your hands into the soil. First of all, it reaffirms your link with the Earth and increases your capacity for walking between the worlds equally. It also provides a link to the collective consciousness of everyone who has ever tread that piece of ground. Just as important, though, it stabilizes the psyche and allows you to see everything in a new light—a brighter light—a light in which solutions are found, problems are solved, and fresh starts abound. And after the dormancy of Winter, that's something we can all use. Dorothy Morrison, author of Bud, Blossom, & Leaf, shares gardening rituals for affirmation and growth.

In HedgeWitchery, we try to be as safely organic as possible! This is good for you as well as the environment.

I took an old bird bath without the stand and placed it in the corner of the garden that had the most shade. Then break...

In my new book, Natural Witchery: Intuitive, Personal & Practical Magick, I define a “Natural Witch” as a practitioner who intuitively senses the magick and the spirit inherent in all things. Natural Witches are practical, down-to-earth, and keep their magick personal by adding a little something extra to the spellwork. What’s the little something extra? It’s intuition. It’s the spark of their...

Grave minding and grave decorating traditions run hand in hand with the season of Samhain, and perhaps nowhere is this as apparent as in Central and South America during Dias de los Muertos.
