What do you Think About Sea Magick?

I found this link a few years ago and left it to explore for later. I’m glad the site is still up. It’s always sad to find things gone.

The Book of Tides, is a resource site for sea magick. Site started in 1995 by Minnie, “resident Sea Witch and mermaid-in-disguise”.

I have taken information and some quotes from the site and added my thoughts along the way.… Read the rest

Have you Heard of the Witch’s Heart?

I found these posted to eBay. I’d never heard about a witch’s heart, in this way. A lot of things were “to ward off evil spirits”. But, I wonder, how was this a witch’s heart in particular.

My label, as best as I can pull together the words, is an atheist Green Witch.… Read the rest

Young Adult Witch Fashion

You are what you wear?

Young people are drawn to Pagan ideas from outside influences like TV shows and the fashions they display. So young people come into Pagan/Wicca/Witch beliefs from less than credible or sincere sources. I hope they look beyond the fashions and the TV idea of magic and find something real for themselves.… Read the rest
