Magick is as Magick Does

Jul 10th, 2018 | By

A Witch is a curious being, a wide-eyed wanderer who looks beyond what is before, and extends an arm out to mystery. They are daring and discerning, becoming the spell they seek before deciding on an herb or a color or a sound. They are the one who calls out with a voice that can

The Magick of Integration

Jun 26th, 2018 | By

I used to be the witch who collected experiences. I collected this class and that chant and that ritual working and those whispers from the godds. I bundled them all up and made a pretty place for them in my heart and on my altar. But it was never enough. I would gather and collect

Dec 4th, 2017 | By

by Irisanya Moon There is a time between Samhain and Yule where things seem to slow down. The light doesn’t linger and there are more days when bedtime is as soon as possible. As a public priestess and teacher, this is also the time when I step back from public things and start planning the
