Rainbows: Working with the beautiful magic of nature

So, rainbows bring the magic of water, sunlight and colour. The rainbow usually appears after the rain so it brings hope, promise and healing. As it is a combination of water and sun energy I think it also works on our emotional level too. The rainbow also appears to be a connection between the earth and the skies or the divine so it works well for spirit or deity magic too. [Read more…]

Moon Phases: Does the full moon affect your sleep?

I think they key is to learn, be aware of and work with the moon phases as much as possible. That way you are working with the energy rather than fighting against it.

Kitchen Witchcraft: A Kitchen Altar & witchy workings in the Kitchen

I think having an altar in your kitchen gives it a focal point; it doesn’t have to be big. I have a small green man shelf and on top of that I have a tiny vase (it is actually a small candle holder) that I put a fresh flower in regularly, and it has representations of the elements – a shell, a feather, a red crystal and a pebble.

Us to publisher: Of course… [Read more…]

So you might see the kitchen as a wonderful creative space or you might loathe it completely and only ever use the microwave (gasp). But it is still a kitchen; it is still a space that you have to make food in. So how about making it a magical space? [Read more…]
