If you're planning your handfasting, and want to incorporate Wiccan or Pagan correspondences into your ceremony, then you're in luck! There are many systems of correspondences, both ancient and modern, on which you can draw. The Pagan Wheel of the Year, and many modern rituals—including handfasting itself—http://www.llewellyn.com/encyclopedia/term/are based on correspondences.

Sometimes, stagnation hits us so slowly that we don't even notice until we're entrenched. It can happen at any point, too. Beginners, experienced witches, community leaders, and teachers all fall into ruts, hit plateaus, and get stuck. No matter how dedicated we are, and no matter our tradition (or lack thereof), hitting walls is an inevitable part of being a witch.

Let's take a look at some of the most common signs that you've arrived on a magical plateau and consider strategies for taking next steps. Books are boring.You've read a fair bit. Maybe even a whole lot. So much that you're starting to feel like all of ...
