What The Hel Is Going On?

In the last few days, I have seen a lot of prominent members of the magical community either comment, or being alarmed by a trend on WitchTok where witchlets/dabblers have been hexing things they shouldn’t be hexing (the Fae, the Moon, the Sun), claiming the gods fear them (um, no… just no) or having « intercourse »…

Big Project Ahead

The Meadmaster and I have been looking at finances, and, believe it or not, we’re this close to potentially buying a house. Our income and finances would have no problems making the mortgage payments, and we’re about halfway there for a down payment and closing fees. This is exciting. In the meantime, we are planning…

Slice of Life : St. John’s Feast, Culture Shock Edition

We have a show called Infoman on Radio Canada, which takes a humourous spin on current events, while still being very informative. It isn’t pure satire, and despite the main animator’s obvious tongue-in-cheek questions to the people he interviews, he’s usually respectful and therefore well-liked by the celebrities and politicians he interviews, even when he…

Being a Witch is Political

With the current climate, following yet another murder of a black man (Rest In Power, George Floyd) by police in the United States, there has been a rise in witches, pagans, heathens and polytheists of all stripes posting on social media in support of the victim and of movements like Black Lives Matter. With that…

Introspection

« And this is what comes from dabbling; I mean you can’t practice witchcraft while you look down your nose at it. » – Aunt Jet Owens, Practical Magic. I’ve been quiet, of late, mainly because I’ve been thinking long and hard about the direction I want to go into with my Witchcraft, only to realize that it’s been 8 years…
