April is a lovely month particularly for those that like to garden (that includes me).  The end of March/beginning of April will find me outside in my small back garden tidying up and preparing for the new season.   If we are lucky the weather starts to improve, and we even get some pretty warm days.  Spring has most definitely sprung, and Mother Nature is showing signs all around us.  A sneak peek into the bounty of wonderful produce that is in store for us. Read more

You could create a witches ladder with twine, wool or ribbon and insert feathers each one for a curse but equally you can also create witches ladders for positive intent such as luck, prosperity, love, healing or success.  Insert a feather for each wish. Read more

Kitchen Witch Bakes for March March is often when we start to see the first signs of spring or if Mother Nature is being fickle (as she so often is) we can also get snow!  But it does have the feel that spring isn’t too far around the corner.  March also hosts the spring equinox, or Ostara as it is often called by modern pagans.  Darkness and light are in balance as the earth begins to stir.  And of course, this month includes chocolate eggs, which is never a bad thing. Read more

Over the years I have always had at least one altar, usually more (much to the dismay of my ever patient husband). Each altar has been filled with paraphernalia, beautiful items purchased from very talented creative artists and craftspeople.  Added to with fresh flowers from the garden, herbs, crystals and any amount of candles.  Each altar gets bits and bobs popped on it from walks and adventures; pebbles, shells, leaves and similar natural items.  Any spell workings also find their way there too. It ends up with quite a lot of clutter.  Then every so often I clear it all off, dispose of the natural items to the compost, cleanse the crystals, dust all the statues and give it a good clean.  Then I start again… Read more

Calling in the elements, calling the quarters, calling the Guardians of the Watchtowers, calling the Elementals – so many names!  But essentially we are calling upon the four elements from the four directions to join us in ritual and to lend their power, energy and protection.  Read more

We all know that blissful moment of putting our feet up at the end of a hard day and sipping a hot cup of soothing tea.  Relaxing, calming and apparently the answer to every situation “have a cup of tea it will make you feel better”.   But tea can also be extremely magical especially if you create the blends yourself and tie them in with your magical intent. Read more

February is a month of promises.  January is done with and March is on the horizon.  Spring isn’t here yet, and often not even any sign of it, but that hint is in the air.  February is still all about warming comfort food, but it also includes Imbolc at the beginning of the month.  Read more

Every single plant, tree, herb and flower will have its own very individual and unique energy.  That energy can be use for magical or medicinal purposes.  So you could use the herb, leaves, petals or seeds within your magical workings – magic powders, witches bottles, mojo bags etc or you could use the plant parts in medicinal teas, tinctures or salves.  But you can also connect with the plant spirit and use its energies for healing, knowledge or seeking answers to questions. Read more
