My heart is a bit heavier than normal today. With the passing of Raven Grimassi, we have lost another great witchcraft elder. Raven Grimassi is within the five most influential witches on my own path, and I know he was for many people as well. There’s a profound depth to Grimassi that had to be experienced in person. He was a man very dedicated to the deeper mysteries of witchcraft, the earth, and the spirits. He spoke with a sense of wisdom, stillness, and clarity that can only come from decades of such deep connecti Read more

In the tradition of witchcraft I am initiated into, The Sacred Fires Tradition, one of the first things we learn is the concept of the “home frequency.” It is one of the single most powerful concepts that have changed my magick and my life. Every person’s home frequency is different. To understand the name a bit more, it’s the frequency in which you should be living your life from. It is where we always return to, regardless of our life or magickal activities. Read more

While Dame Fotune’s Wheel Tarot: A Pictorial Key is obviously meant to be a companion to Dame Fortune’s Wheel Tarot deck, owning the deck isn’t necessary for reading. Just reading through the book you’ll gain fantastic insights on the origins and history of each tarot card, as well as more traditional symbolic interpretations of each. However, if you do have the deck, this book brings such great depth to that deck. I did several test runs with the deck and book – using only Huson’s spreads and sticking solely to the interpretations he uses instead of my own. I’m happy to report that the accuracy of the deck is superior to many others I have come across. Read more

I feel this book was immediately impressive. Not because it goes into a bunch of theorized personal ideas and interpretations of the tarot, but rather because Madame Pamita stays true to the classic tradition of tarot interpretation while giving it a contemporary voice. I would group it among some of the best authors and experts on the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot out there such as Rachel Pollack or Mary K. Greer. I think as more people discover and read Madame Pamita’s Magical Tarot: Using the Cards to Make Your Dreams Come True that it’s bound to become one of those classic tarot books out there.  Read more

Dame Fortune’s Wheel Tarot is a deck by Paul Huson. Most witches will already be familiar with Paul Huson and his work, being the author of the classic 1970 book on witchcraft, Mastering Witchcraft. Paul Huson designed and illustrated this whole deck, which makes it extra awesome, since he’s a master occultist and tarot expert. The deck itself is an interesting fusion of the classical symbolism of the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, the Etteilla deck and the Marseille deck.  Read more

Oracle of the Ancient Celts – The Dalriada is a gorgeous deck created by artist Maxine Miller, Raven Grimassi and Stephanie Taylor Grimassi. If you’re a pagan or a practicing witch there’s a good chance that you’re familiar with Maxine Miller’s art, particularly her wildly popular statues of pagan deities. There’s even a high probability that you or someone you know own her statuary. Raven & Stephanie Grimassi really need no introductions. As elders in Witchcraft and Paganism, Raven’s accomplishments and books alone are numerous and has had several well-known students such as Scott Cunningham and Donald Michael Kraig. Read more

I don’t know exactly what happened in those woods. I suspect the spirit of the deceased was upset about the condition of her grave, and I just happened to be sensitive enough to notice her plea for help since I was spending my free time meditating, learning trance, and working magic. Maybe it was the guardian of the graveyard reaching out for help. I really can’t give a solid answer, but I can say that place and experience have stuck with me all these years later as a great memory and influence on my work. Read more

Marie Kondo is someone whom I absolutely adore. She’s a former Shinto priestess and her Netflix show is amazing, particularly because she’s bringing awareness of animism to people in America, who wouldn’t normally think about talking to the Spirit of Place or viewing objects as entities. Researching Marie’s history, I realized she is the perfect example of how I will illustrate how Shadow work should be approached from a Jungian & Witchcraft point of view. Read more

When meditating on how to explain my relationship with gods, the best example I could come up with is my relationship with Laura Tempest Zakroff. So in the following, Tempest will be a magickal creature that I call a goddess (which isn’t that far-fetched honestly). Read more
