A Handbook of Saxon Sorcery & Magic by Alaric Albertsson

A Handbook of Saxon Sorcery & Magic by Alaric Albertsson

Over the past couple of decades modern interpretations of Wicca and Paganism has evolved to such an extent that they are criticised for having lost contact with their roots. Whether you believe this to be the case or not really depends on whether you approach the question from an occult or historical perspective. Alaric Albertsson has been practising Paganism for nearly as long as the current modern movement has been reinventing itself. In his book A Handbook of Saxon Sorcery he investigates the ancient roots of the Craft and teaches his readers how to employ a number of ancient practices and customs derived from the Anglo-Saxons – teachings which are hidden, or contained, within… Read More

Ostara by Kerri Connor

Ostara by Kerri Connor

Of all the annual Sabbats, or Pagan celebrations, the best well known and universally practised is Ostara. In the Northern Hemisphere this point of the year, one marked astrologically by the entry of the Sun into the sign of Aries, falls on the 21st March. It is more commonly known as the Spring Equinox. For those living in colder climates this date is particularly revered for it marks the progression of the long dark period of winter into the lighter and brighter days of spring. Given that this is time when cosmic forces rise and energise both the natural world and the human psyche it is perhaps not too surprising… Read More

Spirit Conjuring for Witches by Frater Barrabbas

The conjuration of spirits is an aspect of occultism that has been somewhat in decline over the past few decades. Once the core activity in many arcane practices it no longer features as heavily as it once did in the ritual workings of occultists — even to the degree that there is risk of us losing so much of the once deeply revered knowledge and understanding of this aspect of magic. Frater Barrabas is a practicing ritual magician who has studied Magick and the occult for over thirty-five years. He is also an elder in the Alexandrian strain of Witchcraft as well as the founder of a magickal order known as… Read More

Woman Most Wild by Danielle Dulsky

Woman Most Wild by Danielle Dulsky

“A communal subterranean yearning for wild woman spirituality is drumming beneath our feet, and this longing has been born of the feminine’ spiritual starvation.” With those profound words artist, teacher, and writer Danielle Dulsky reveals the essential message contained within her book Woman Most Wild. So what, you might well ask, is ‘wild woman spirituality’? In Woman Most Wild Dulsky explains that it is essentially a living, breathing tradition that can be found deep within Witchcraft. She states that it is energised by a deep sense of freedom, sexuality and inherent sacredness which is currently dormant within the feminine psyche. Dulsky believes that traditional Witchcraft – and particularly the modern variants,… Read More

The Hearth Witch’s Compendium by Anna Franklin

The Hearth Witch’s Compendium by Anna Franklin

Anyone who has even the slightest degree of interest in Witchcraft will probably have been initially drawn into this world of mystery by the portrayal of the old Wise Woman as she appears in old childhood stories and nursery rhymes. Coupled with images of rambling roses outside the front doors of her old stone cottage, herbs drying in the kitchen and strange brews bubbling away for days on the open fire these scenes stimulate the senses and engage the Pagan passions in all of us. Sadly, Modern Witchcraft is no longer filled with visual images such as these for in many ways the Old Ways of the Craft, along with… Read More

The Witch’s Book of Shadows by Jason Mankey

The Witch’s Book of Shadows by Jason Mankey

Of all the tools to be found in an occultist toolbox none are quite so important, or valuable, as The Book of Shadows. For Pagan blogger Jason Mankey his own Book of Shadows was his first tool of Witchcraft: a small, plain Nepalese journal that he picked up in a local hippy-style store. His second Book was a blue leather-bound journal that he purchased at a Barnes and Noble store. This one proved to be a more purpose-built affair with uniform pages and ruled lines. He still has both in his possession – along with others that he has used over the years. They now amount to fifteen by the… Read More

Betwixt and Between by Storm Faerywolf

Betwixt and Between by Storm Faerywolf

The Faery Tradition (not to be confused with the fairy tradition) in Witchcraft is seen as a comparatively recent offshoot of the traditional Gardenerian form of the Craft. Originating in the West Coast of America it is a path to personal power that actually has its roots in an ancient strain of the Craft and which today is enjoying a resurgence of interest. This is mainly due to the emerging experts in the field such as Storm Faerywolf. Hailing from San Francisco Faerywolf holds a Black Wand of a Master and is the founder of BlueRose, a school and lineage of the Faery Tradition. Through this he offers help and… Read More
