It is natural for the witch to summon the moon’s energy. We draw her down, reside in her shadows, ride her winds and rise from her waves. This is the remembering of what we have always known. The moon is our divine mediator: the merging of the stars, darkness, and earth. Our ally in working with the forces and spirits. Practicing lunar magick involves drawing the moon into our rituals and spells, merging with our focus and then releasing it, including The Sacred Seven Moon Summoning technique. Read more

Hekate is seen very differently by both her contemporary followers as well as in works of art and historical records. There’s certain views of Hekate that I really don’t care for, including caging her in the past, as a crone and as a patroness. While these representations can cause me to rant to anyone willing to listen, they aren’t my biggest problem. After all, these are just perspectives that have nothing to do with my understanding of my favored goddess. For me, the real issue is whenever someone claims to speak the one truth about Hekate. Read more

Shadow Syndrome is characterized by feelings of unworthiness, of being a fraud, and looking to others for validation. While this can be debilitating, it’s actually a gift that can lead us towards our truth. One of the costs of witchcraft is learning to understand the darkness, including that which lives within us. Often these symptoms arise because the authentic witch within is telling us that it’s time to walk our authentic path. This is the calling to heal our shadows and claim the title of real witch, however we define it. Read more

Creating enchanted effigies is a practice as old as witchcraft. Useful for all types of witchery, from healing to hexing, poppets are a staple of the witch’s magickal repertoire. Poppets can be made out of many materials, including dough, wax, fabric, wood, clay, plants, vegetables and even meat or cheese. They are activated using a variety of methods, ranging from baptism to incantation. I’ve included tips for making poppets, along with three different examples. The first is a plant spirit guardian, the second a witch’s companion, and the third is a “hex-your-ex” effigy.  Read more

Women’s reproductive freedom is currently under attack, yet again. This is a call for witches to do battle with those who use women as a means for political gain. If we fail to answer this cry, we ourselves are opening the door to the next burning times for those men who seek to control women will come for us, too. Asteria, Leto, Artemis and Hekate. Four goddesses related by blood, readily sharing their powers of reproductive rights, choice, freedom and justice with us to bring an end to this campaign. Call upon them in this spell for women’s reproductive freedom. Read more

Witchcraft today often seems like it’s freely available, especially those willing to spend loads of cash of fancy trinkets. Dabbling in witchcraft isn’t the same at all as being a witch. The costs are high to those of us committed to walking the witches’ journey. Some of the tolls include giving up a safe life, ignorance, idleness, rigidity and often, personal comfort. Initiation into the ways of the wise requires great personal transformation that usually can only occur after immense despair and hardship. While the tolls are high, the benefits make them all worth it. Read more

Hail to the keys, the crossroads, the torch, and most of all, the moon. For those are the gifts of Hekate’s Modern Witchcraft. The keys of magick and mystery that she freely gives to those bold enough to claim them. Behold the power of her crossroads, the otherness of the witch. Dare we enter this space between worlds and beyond time? Follow her pale torchlight, if you will. For it is your choice alone. Lastly, to the moon above, forever watching over our witchery. These are the gifts of Hekate’s Modern Witchcraft, as ancient as Circe and as eternal as the Witch-Mother herself. To the future, where we are free to practice as we so chose, living a life of sovereign power. And to the community of witches who follow this journey. Hail to Hekate, Keeper of the Keys! Read more

Witchcraft is, above all, a way for us to stand in the power of our personal truth. Witches should serve no one, not deities, spirits or other humans. We are sovereign practitioners who ultimately are responsible for our own actions. There shouldn’t been any room for servitude. Haven’t we been forced into supplication long enough?  Read more

I call out to the April showers that really do bring May flowers, And the Full Moon who pours her secrets in the drops of rain, Bringing to me the power of becoming, Embracing the promise of abundance returning again. To the chill in the night air that whispers of death, I claim your power, Destroying that which doesn’t serve me well. Read more
