Why Do We Keep Records?

Records are an important process within the coven and your lives. They provide a record of activity you can trace over time to measure success, failures, and changes. This is your personal metaphysical genealogy.

How To Talk The Talk: Basic Pagan Vocabulary

The following is a list of technical words and phrases originally taken from the first three editions of Real Magic. This will be continuously updated to incorporate new terms and definitions, as well as polytheological vocabulary, with internal hyperlinks activated, and will eventually grow into A Polytheological Dictionary for Neopagans. Readers should remember that many of these definitions and coinages are my own, and that other authorities may disagree with me. All definitions should be taken, regardless of the source, as tentative approaches to complex realities. by Isaac Bonewits

Where Magick Happens

Witchcraft in all its glory.

I've had a lot of requests lately about my where and what I use to cast my spells especially when dealing with my clients. My family is huge so we have a lot of little kids running around at all times. That and I don't like bringing strange energy or people into my home. So I use a 10 ft x 10 ft garage with concrete floor. Over the years this has become my personal sanctuary as well.

Ten Great Ways To Celebrate Litha

It's Litha, the longest day of the year! The sun will shine more today than any other day of the year, and it's a day to get outdoors and celebrate. Spend the day in the sun with your family. Play outdoors, go for a hike, and enjoy all the delights the earth has to offer.

Here are some ideas for ways to celebrate the summer solstice. Admittedly, not all of them are For Pagans Only, but they're a good way to mark the turn of the Wheel of the Year.

Magick Point Of View

My experiences have taught me that magic, when properly perceived and understood, is the thoughtfully deliberate application of very natural forces in equally natural ways to produce desired changes in our living reality. Our traditions and “systems,” currents, and forms of magic become preferential choices of mode, example, and expression. Magic is magic. Regardless of how we approach its mysteries (if our chosen path is worthy to be called magical), we will each arrive at the same conclusion; nature is magical. Every relevant principal of magic is revealed through nature.
