News Update!

Hello, Everyone! 

As you'll be aware we've been battling some technical glitches over the last few months but everything seems to be back up and running smoothly now.

A new guided meditation "Escaping Anxiety", will be added to out Full Members Area in the next couple of days, and there are plans afoot for our new online radio station. If anyone would like to contribute material or discussion points for this, please get in touch.

A question - Moons

Hello,

You'll have all seen that the front page of the site holds info about the magical calendar. Now since this site started life (way back in 2009) we've always displayed the more modern names for the moons and festivals. However, those of you who are full members will know that when we send out newsletter, we always go for the older traditional names.

My question is this: Is it time to ditch the modern and go back to our roots?

Updates!

Hello,

I thought I better put up a little blog post to let you all know I'm still alive! Things have been chaos over the last few months, mostly in a good way, occasionally in more challenging ways.

Rest assured updates are coming over the next week or so, lol.

The site seems to have come alive over the past few months, and this is purely down to you, our awesome members, sharing stories and experiences with each other.

New courses for Free Members

I've decided to put some mini-courses together in the Free Members area, as a way of expanding the free information we provide. These courses differ from our full length courses, available to Full Members, in a couple of ways:

- Length. This is the main difference, where as the full length courses have around an hour of instructional videos, require 5-20 hours practical/research practice, and 3 assignments. The mini courses will have 10-20 minutes of videos, require 1-5 hours…

Setting up an Altar

Altars have many uses within witchcraft, they can be used in spells, as a way to display the turning of the Wheel of the Year, or just as a place for contemplation and meditation.

Altars can vary in size and form as much as magic practitioners themselves do. They can be a small wooden box containing a few items, right up to a 6 by 4 foot carved oak slab. I’ve seen many altars set up on windowsills, shelves, bedside tables and mantelpieces. Altars also do not need to by in a fixed…

Herbs, Plants & Resins

Plants form an integral part of magic. They can be used to decorate places and alters, they can be turned into incense or burnt as smudge sticks.

In an ideal world we would all grow and harvest our own herbs, or forage for wild ones our self. If you do decide to go down the route of growing your own I would recommend using a book such as ‘Gardening and Planting by The Moon…’ in order to gain maximum magical energy in them. If you decide to collect plants and herbs from the wild please…

Crystal Magic

Crystals are a valuable and very versatile tool. You can wear them as a talisman, place them on altars and incorporate them in to spells. Below is a list of my favourites and how I use them. As with all magical correspondences the below list is by no means set in stone, there is every possibility that a particular crystal will present you with an entirely different set of energies to the associated ones I've described. Work with what feels right for you, our connection with magical energies…

Candle Magic

Candles are a staple tool of any magical practitioner and candle magic is a wonderfully simple way to cast spells. When I first started practicing witchcraft it was the first type of spell I learnt. It is also very easy to personalise, and after all if we can’t personally connect with the spell we are casting then it is unlikely to be successful. The use of candles can also be incorporated into larger rituals, in fact I can’t remember being at any ritual that didn’t include candles in some…

What is Magic?

If you are reading this expecting long mysterious explanations of cryptic ceremonies used to conjure magic, I am afraid I am about to disappoint you.

What is magic? Everything.

Where is magic? Everywhere.

You just have to learn to see it, feel it and recognise it. For me at least, magic isn’t something we create it is something we use. A type of energy given of by…
