I see the new year’s resolution as a magical act that one can participate in regardless of their faith. To set goals for yourself and then to resolve your will power so that you achieve those goals is nothing short of magic. Read more

The TLDR no-spoilers version is this: The Craft: Legacy felt more like the pilot of the next installment to the CW’s Charmed franchise. Didn’t hate it, didn’t love it, glad it is here because I know it will continue to spread the cultural impact from the first movie to a new generation, but I wish they would have given the incredible actors portraying the witches more to work with.

In witchcraft and occultism, we are often drawn to working with plants, plant spirits, and the magic that exists all throughout the kingdom of Flora. Houseplants are often overlooked in favor of plants that are classically associated with the craft, but there is potent magic that can be found even in the plants you can get next to the grocery checkout. Read more

While I was finding my way as a magical person in secular society, many of my friends pulled away and became more insulated from it. We have all mostly stayed close but the differences in approach and fundamental values couldn’t be more pronounced. Honestly, aside from a shared love of the planet and belief in magic and animism; there isn’t much that connects us across the aisle these days. Read more
