When I first began my Pagan journey, I was presented with the Wheel of the Year with which it seemed most Pagans worked. I learned all the dates and correspondences, which took me ages, and I often forgot what was supposed to be where! But I duly decorated my altar for each Sabbat and did the ritual, although I am not sure how much I actually connected with each one. As my journey has deepened and the years have passed, I realised that the Wheel of the Year isn't about dates on calendars; it's more about connections. Mother Nature does not keep to a schedule, and perhaps more so in recent years; the seasons seem to be all over the place. The energies will also change depending on where ...

If you simply say that everyone is welcome without understanding what would make people ...

The paths that life take us are many and winding, with great and small adventures along the way. My own path to being a hedge witch is not dissimilar, and the roads that I have travelled have all informed me in my practice today. There are so many different elements and traditions of the Craft. So what was it that drew me to hedge witchcraft? Well, let's start at the beginning! As a child growing up on the edge of a village in the mountains of Quebec, I had always been drawn to and fascinated by the natural world, as well as the "mythical" inhabitants that shared our world or whose worlds overlapped our own. While belonging to the Protestant Church, all around me were tales from the ...

Mental Health and the Magical Mind: How to Strengthen Your Thinking
by Awyn Dawn
Mental health is too often thought of as a side note or a punchline. Sometimes it is not thought of at all, ignored in an effort to will away any topic deemed too uncomfortable to discuss. As magical...
