A Different Sort of Spring… Spring has officially arrived in my corner of the world. While the trees planted by human hands are bursting into exquisitely delicate color, the desert answers with her own mantle of green as the rains and warm sunshine bring life back to the barren soil. While Autumn definitely holds the crown in my heart as ….
Greetings, and welcome to my little corner of The Way of Witch. Unlike many witches and pagans, my home is not in the emerald forests or misty mountains. My home is in an unforgiving desert filled with red sand, black lava rock, and wind-sculpted sandstone cliffs. Green is an accent color here where the sun rules unchallenged. A strange place, ….
Obviously, based on its title, this article is about judgment. Not the judgment of others. Rather, that sneaky self judgment. You know the kind, it tells you all sorts of lies like, this won’t work or you’re just mundane. I think a lot of new witches experience this; and it is very likely seasoned witches do as well.

Today, I came across a new post by Keeping Her Keys, “My Goddesses Are Wild And Free” You can read the original article here. I have to say, I certainly feel this way about Freyja… she came to me on her terms, unbidden. I was dancing with a hula hoop one moment bidding Loki to stop stealing the hoop… and ….

She is the mother of demons, an eviscerating screech owl and the cause of sexual powerlessness men. Her mythology seems to have arisen from ….
For anybody who feels a bit blocked, here is a cleansing meditation based on a traditional Hoodoo Road Opening Spell that is intended to be performed in dual etheric/physical space. But you don’t need to have an advanced degree in Astral Travel or anything, just make yourself comfortable in your ritual space, play the meditation and relax into it. I ….
Sigil-crafting is a very handy bit of magick for a practitioner to have in their toolbox. It’s deceptively simple but tremendously effective. Any magickal intent imaginable can be programmed into the design. When executed, the image can be carved, drawn, painted, traced with a finger or simply created in the mind’s eye. A sigil can be a figure composed of ….
I developed my Five Fingers Potion this year as spring was coming. There was a stale energy in my home and I was getting sick of it! We were feeling sluggish and a bit depressed. The cats were even less impressed with us than usual. I knew I had to turn it around, starting with a good clean and cleanse ….
This is part of an ongoing series about using Planetary Magick to stimulate, enhance, inspire, channel and direct energies toward creative ends. In past posts, I have discussed how the Sun is the primal planet in relation to nourishing the creative soul and how Mercury Retrograde can be used follow the path the soul has taken. We also took look ….
