Samhain is often considered “The Witch” holiday, but I disagree! Yule is packed with Magick. But are you looking for a few new things to add? See below for easy ways to bring even more Magick to this special time. 1.) A Magickal Gift Exchange For a group: In my old Coven, we encouraged guests at our Yule ritual to bring a Magickal gift (candles, oil, stones, a spell, etc.).

“Is there any point?” I asked her, expressing my dismay over the most recent report on climate change. It was a cold and wet day, but the memories of the summer’s forest fires were still fresh. I was snapping beans with my High Priestess. I hadn’t seen her in months, even though I’d promised myself to not let a Moon go by without dropping by for a cup of tea.

Recently, I posted a blog about forgiveness. A few people were mad about it. “Forgiveness puts the blame on the victim!” was the main concern. I hear that. I’ve seen that.
