The Seventh Sphere Rider Waite Tarot – A Review

So, what do you say, should we get down to it? The Customer Experience So this is not the first time I have purchased a deck from Labyrinthos and I…

The Weaver Tarot, The Ascendant Edition – A Review

So I am going to be completely honest, I was very disappointed in this deck. I was actually a bit shocked by it. The Weaver Tarot, The Ascendant Edition is a deck from the Threads of Fate company and I had previously purchased their Shadow Oracle deck, which I love. I actually could go on and on over the oracle deck, however this is not about that deck, this is about the Weaver Tarot. While it has all the potential for a wonderful deck, one small design choice really ruined it for me. So let’s get into it!

True Black Tarot – A Review

So I had never actually heard of the True Black Tarot until recently when I was turned onto it by one of my online friends. Once I went to the site and found it, I fell in love. The cards were stunning and the website had an air of mystery involving it. I ordered the cards and have had them for a few weeks, and as such decided I would do a review on this stunning, and exclusive, deck.

Dream Magic: More Than Just Signs

Dream Magic can be very powerful and has been used for as long as magic has been around. Appearing in everything from modern day magical texts, and going back through the ages to appear in the Three Occult Books of Philosophy by Agrippa in the 16th century, The Sworn Book of Honorius from the 13th century, and even appearing multiple times in The Greek Magical Papyri which was written between the 2nd century BC through the 5th century AD, dream magic has long been used by man as a way to bring affect change in the world. From spells that use dreams for prophecy, to influence the dreams of others, to even contacting the spirit world, Dream Magic is as versatile as your dreams are.

Inner Dimensions Tarot – A Review

So this is a deck I am very excited to review, as I know the actual creator and I have been personally hounding them for MONTHS about this deck to come out (#sorrynotsorry). In fact, the moment they announced the release of the deck I went and bought it so quickly that I later found out that I had been the first person to purchase it! Yay me! But enough about me and the amazing person who brought this deck to life, this is about the deck and cards itself. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

Magic… It is meant to be messy

As a witch, you have a responsibility to yourself to practice your craft the best way you know how. How can you do that when you don’t learn yourself how these things work? How can you feel confident in your craft and yourself if you are always looking for validation from others instead of learning the confidence to try something yourself?

Deity Worship in my Practice

So this is going to be a bit personal for me. I think it would be for anyone. When we talk about deities and our relationship to them, we are talking about a sacred part of who we are and our beliefs. We are talking about the part of ourselves that looks for something more, looks for answers, and looks for guidance. It is easy to get swept up into the Witchtok version, where deities seem more like best friends who are always there for you, and while that might work for those individuals, to me deity worship in my practice is a bit different.

The Nature of Being a Witch

So, you want to be a witch. You might be new to the craft, or a self identified “baby witch”. You could be someone looking to see what this is all about. You could even be looking at this from a perspective of someone looking to get back into the craft after years being away.

The Elements: A Beginners Guide

Earth, Air, Fire, Water. Since the dawn of time these elements have been the driving force of our world. They have been worshipped, studied, admired, and even feared. What can be more beautiful than a snow capped peak, or a rose petal dancing in the wind? What can be as awe inspiring as a hurricane? Or as feared as a forest fire? In this lesson we will do a dive into these primal forces to help get a better understanding of their uses in magic.

The Personal Responsibility of Spirituality

So today I did what we all fear. I found out I made a social media blunder. Thank the gods I only have 26 twitter followers so it wasn’t that bad, but it was not a good feeling when a close friend messaged me saying I looked like a dick online to others. So I am hoping that by writing this post I can clear some things up and hopefully have a chance to educate others on why I said what I said, and why I stand by it. I would have done this online a…

Illusion Magic 101

As defined by the dictionary, “An illusion is a distortion of the senses, which can reveal how the human brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation”. Illusions work by adjusting the perceptions of people around you, adjusting the perception of a situation, and by changing the thoughts of an individual.

The Left Hand Path: Misconceptions and Ways To Use It Beneficially

The Left Hand Path, a path walked with shadows and mystery. Often said to be derived from Satanism and the dreaded “Black Magic”, the Left Hand Path is actually quite the opposite. While it does maintain an aura of mystery and a sense of the forbidden, the Left Hand Path is a very interesting construct of magic, one which gives the freedom of the witch to explore the boundaries of their world. In this lesson we will go over some misconceptions of the Left Hand Path as well as ways it can be used beneficially, hopefully to help shed light on this often misrepresented subject.

Urban Magic Practices

Practicing urban magic can be quite confusing and frustrating for some witches. Indeed, we always think of forests, nature, waterfalls, oceans, etc as places that are sacred to the reals of witchcraft, and it is very hard to imagine doing workings in an urban environment.

To Bind Another Away From You

This is a fairly simple spell, however is immensely powerful. It is used to bind someone to themselves, a way of removing them from your life to never return. I personally have done this spell on a few people and, years later, they are still not part of my life anymore. This is one I wrote using a spell found in Valerie Worth’s Crones Book of Magical Words.

Edgar Cayce: The Sleeping Prophet

When we think of witchcraft, we typically think of women stirring potions over smokey cauldrons in the night. Indeed, that image of witchcraft has become as popular as the idea of Halloween over the years, growing and shaping into its own narrative. While it is true witchcraft is about spells and potions and nature, there is a deeper side to witchcraft, a metaphysical side. This is the story of a Christian prophet and the lessons he taught humanity.

Precognition, Deja Vu, and the Subconscious Virtual Existence

For as long as man has existed, we have always looked to the future to give us a glimpse of how the present will play out. From using tarot cards and diving the future with crystal balls, to looking towards the stars to help calculate where we are in the world and where we are supposed to be. Out of all the methods of seeing the future, Precognition and Deja Vu are easily two of the most identifiable and popular ways people have used to see what is to come.

The Basic Understanding of Magic and Witchcraft

Magic, wichraft, sorcery. What is it? How does it work? We have all heard stories of the wicked witch in the woods, the magician who saves the princess, and who but Shakespeare could properly put a name and thought into the sorcerer of storms in his epic The Tempest. Since the dawn of time man has always worked to understand the ways of the world around us. Indeed, there are things we used to know that have been lost to humanity for thousands of years, such as the nature and purpose of Stonehenge and how it was built. One thing that has held on to the swaying nature of public interest, even on the outskirts, is the belief in magic and witchcraft.

Orchids, their care, and their use in Magic

Orchids are by far my favorite flower and for many reasons. They are beautiful, easy to purchase (you can usually find full grown orchids at your local florist or supermarket), and come in some of the most dazzling colors in creation. They are also one of the more overlooked magical flowers to use. Below I will go over the uses, care of, and nature of these picky little beauties.

Common Tools in Witchcraft

When we think of magic, what comes more to mind than the vision of a witch, standing over a cauldron, muttering phrases while waving a magic wand. Indeed, the visual of a witch is often accompanied by a broom, wand, cauldron, or any manner tools and objects. For todays lesson, we will go over the basics of these tools, including the most common ones, and also what you can do to substitute for them if you do not have these items.

The Truth of a Coup and start of a Resistance

I was always raised under the axiom “never air your dirty laundry”. That being said, this laundry smells so bad I have no choice but to air it, to start over. Starting over isn’t easy by any means, and you dear reader might have a different opinion of me when this is finished than when it began.
