Candle burning is a practice that has become more popular with persons of both sexes, and of all ages and walks of life.

In the last issue I wrote about water, so this time, nearly approaching the summer solstice, I thought it was only appropriate to write about fire. Fire. Both the word and the image bring so much to mind. It scorches. It desiccates. It smolders and burns. It sparks, it inspires, it enflames, and it emboldens. Like the other elements, it has its positive side and its fierce side. And yet, though...

From Witchy Update, Issue 30, April/May 2008. “I've always wondered why so many witches snuff or pinch out candles instead of blowing them out (I prefer letting them burn down, of course, but sometimes that's impossible). I've heard/read many varied reasons behind this, but haven't found one underlying philosophy behind the practice.”—sent in by Sapphire from Georgia Dear Sapphire, Great...

From my own point of view as a ritualist, I can appreciate how mental quirks influence an interest in ritual and the types of rituals one might perform. At the same time, greater...

Winter is a season when you can burn your candles at both ends of the day, and for many peoples, candle lighting is an important tradition of Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and other world holidays during this time.

Each season brings its changes, but the fact of change is dramatically underscored in autumn. Those of us who live in northern climates are privileged to see some of Nature’s most breath-taking beauty in the vivid shades of red, orange, and yellow of fall foliage. The cooler temperatures invite us to spend more time outdoors; our senses are aroused by the smell of wood fires, windfall apples,...

Everyone knows that brooms and witches go together. Most popular images of witches show them with pointed hats, black cats, and a broom. And while not every witch has a cat (or a funny-looking hat, for that matter), most of us own a broom. But how many of us actually use them for our magical work?
