Devotion in the Desert

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, ….

Judgmental Little Witch

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. Last summer ….

Sigils with Serendipity Wyrd

This video is an excellent introduction to sigil making! Serendipity Wyrd explores some of the techniques she uses to make and charge sigils. In my opinion, the Mercury Retrograde season is a great time to do some sigil work. Dig those symbols out of the depths your subconscious and create some magickal images! You can even make one to protect ….

Lilith Rising: An Energy Raising Ritual Invoking the Goddess Lilith

The goddess Lilith is portrayed in mythology and religious texts as something of a chimera. According to these stories, she is alternately a deadly terrifying hag and a seductress in possession of a raw, punishing sexuality.

Road Opener: A Crossroads Visualization

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 ….

Witchcrafting Sigils: Project #1, The Doodle Sigil

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 ….

Five Fingers Potion for Prosperity and Health

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 ….

Mercury Retrograde Reverse Psychopomp Ritual

Fear of Mercury Retrograde Mercury Retrograde is without a doubt the most talked about and feared retrograde of them all. That is probably because it’s the only one the vast majority of people know about. And yes, many people experience frustration in travel, commerce in communications during the period that Mercury appears to do the backward mambo across the night ….
