  As a solitary practitioner with an eclectic background I have researched various magical traditions from different cultures in an attempt to find a cohesive framework within which to work.  I eventually settled on the broad and nebulous practice of what is often called traditional witchcraft.  I don’t personally identify with a specific initiatory tradition in that sense, and I also do not deny that modern traditional witchcraft and Wiccan practices both have similar roots in the Modern Witchcraft Revival. … Read more

In many traditions, there is a customary period of study and reflection for novices before initiation.  Then there is the dreaded mire of “armchair occultism.”  What about those of us whose insatiable hunger for occult wisdom drives us to reconcile the endless quest for knowledge with the desire to put that knowledge into practice.

Understanding the Sabbatic Current In order to understand sabbatic witchcraft we must first discuss its place of origin, the Cultus Sabbati.  This was a term coined by the members of this tradition for communication purposes.  The leader, known as Magister, at the time was the late Andrew D.

Saturn: Retrograde and Return Retrograde is an astronomical term that refers to a planet’s movement.  All of the planets, except the sun an moon, will at some point have a retrograde orbit.  When a planet is in retrograde its apparent or perceived movement is backwards to us on Earth.  This is due to the varying times it takes the planets to orbit the sun.  Sometimes planets pass one another, and this causes a distortion in the perception of its orbit…. Read more

  ​This past weekend was the annual Pride Festival in Fort Wayne, IN, my hometown. The first gay pride festival was held in Fort Wayne in 1997. There were only a hundred or so people in attendance at that first year. This year it was estimated that 15,000 people would be attending over the weekend. In the past twenty years it has grown into one of the largest festivals in Fort Wayne. The fact that something like this can not… Read more
