Don’t Be A Good Witch…

I would bet that most of you are familiar with that sing-songy question a la The Wizard of Oz: “Are you a good witch or a bad witch?” Really, I can’t think of any situation where that’s a fun question to be asked – if you’re actually a Witch. Read more

Magick Is Not a Band-Aid Fix (Or Is It?)

I suppose my inherent dislike for talking about spells is that the majority of people don’t understand them, or how they work. They’re looking for an easy fix to whatever their issue is. They think if they follow a series of steps and put in the right ingredients, it’s just like a recipe for baking a cake. But even baking a cake isn’t that easy. Read more

My Witchcraft Is…(A Poetry of Contradictions)

I’m currently on the road for my book tour, but I decided to take a few moments to revisit this poem I wrote last year, and change its structure a bit. “My Witchcraft Is…” My witchcraft is messy, unable to be contained in pristine neat rows and tidy jars.

The human brain likes to think we can put everything in neat, clean, little boxes.  It says that everything can be clearly defined, sanitized, and labeled.  Something is either THIS or THAT, YES or NO, BLACK or WHITE*, 0 or 1. This type of programming is designed to minimize stress, so we can focus on whatever task is at hand.

Witchery World: Float Like a Jellyfish…and Sting Like One Too.

The jellyfish sidles up, stings, noms, and heads on its way. The same works best for spellcraft: do what you need to do without a lot of fuss or attention. Read more

It’s Officially Tend To Your Cauldron Day!*

*Not officially.  Technically more of a nice idea.  Other options include “Hug Your Cauldron Day,” “Bring Your Cauldron To Work Day, “Cauldron Appreciation Day” and “Adopt a Cauldron Day” – or I’m open to hear your creative titles!
