10 Ways to Celebrate the Full Moon

With the Moon reaching the peak of its cycle tonight I am sure you are feeling the pull of the Full Moon as much as I am. For the last few days the waters in me – physical and spiritual – have been rising. It’s the same every month, I am pulled toward the rising tides...

A is for Animism

This week I am starting a new series of blog posts – An A-Z of Witchcraft. The aim is to explain some important words which Traditional Witches use a lot (and forget not everyone knows what they mean!) and to talk about some important issues. They will be shortish...

Reinventing the Wheel

Why I abandoned the Wheel of the Year……. and still embrace it. This blog is a story in two halves. It’s the story of how I rejected the modern Pagan Wheel of the Year and built a practice based on the land on which I live. But it’s also a story about how that same...

The Basics of Meditation

In recent years meditation has become much more popular - it is no longer the preserve of initiates, or those who have dedicated themselves to the esoteric life. It is open to everyone. And everyone seems to have a different way of doing it. And a different definition...

How to Make Magical Oils Part 2

Magical Oils are a key part of my witchy tool kit. I use them for all sorts of purposes – dressing candles for spell work, anointing myself (and others) before ritual, adding a little oomph! to a charm bag, or in a magical bath. In fact the only limit is my...

Why Meditate

Most of us know that meditation is, apparently good for us. We've been told oh so many times we should get up half an hour early to find time to meditate, or that we should skip reading that magazine at lunchtime in favour of a few breathing exercises. It used to be...

Where to Start?

WELCOME!!   I'm so glad you made it here.   The number one question I hear asked by those new to Paganism or Witchcraft is 'Where do I start'?    My answer is simple - Start EXACTLY where you ARE.    All too often the advice given to new seekers...

Looking Back to Look Forward

 Looking Back to Look ForwardThe Hearth of Brighid  We are about to be between the years once more. A liminal time between what was and all the potential of what is to come. And as we hurtle towards the striking of Midnight I’m in a reflective mood. I’m still...

How to….. Make Magical Oils

In the first of a series of practical 'How to Posts' I am going to show how to make magical oils - this is so incredibly simple and so magically powerful you'll wonder why you ever considered buying them! Many witches use herbs and plants in their work - either for...

Dancing in the Moonlight

The Moon and magic are inextricably linked. The image of the witch dancing below the full moon is prevalent not just in our community but across society. Witches and Full Moons go together like Chocolate and Chilli. (Or is that just me?). This weekend brings another...

The Tides are Changing

The bright green, overflowing, exploding abundance of summer passed some weeks ago. Growth slowed just a little bit - but the sun continued to burn brightly. And now, in the last week or so the smell in the air has changed, the rain lingers a little longer, and...

Top Ten Books for the Traditionalist Witch

This is a title with a lot of promise! I fear that promise may be unfulfilled because, as any true bookworm witch knows, its impossible to produce a definitive list when there is such good material to choose from. We are incredibly lucky to be living amongst so many...

Live Local, Eat Local

Being local is important to my witchcraft. I work with the magic that is HERE. I work with the energies which meet me every morning as I open my door. I am a local witch. So why have I just eaten a banana that was grown in West Africa? My Witchcraft is all about...

Srcibd For the Traditionalist Witch

  Last week I posted my "top" 10 list of books which I highly recommend, but there is no denying it would cost a small fortune to go out and buy them all. So this week I am looking at the excellent books available for almost free on scribd - it might become your...

Celebrating Lammas Locally

Lammas in South Wales is going to be a busy time. Not just the farmers in the fields, but the witches in the parks and clubs too! There is something for everyone over the next few days. I was browsing facebook recently and I realised how much is happening at the...

Witchcraft in the City

Nature is at the very heart of Witchcraft. Its wild edges call to us and stirs the very depths of our souls. Images of the natural world pervade our ideal of the traditional witch - alone on a deserted windswept moor, gales raging, or quietly wandering through country...
