Elemental Combinations

I don't really use elements in your traditional ritual set up. I do sometimes use them but it's often in a more alchemical way than an earth-air-fire-water way.

Review: Tarot Spells by Janina Renee – 3.5/5

Tarot Spells by Janina Renee. 1994. Llwellyn. 3.5/5 - Meh Warnings: None except very slight "negative energy will come back to you" mentioned once. A good book and accessible for everyone.

But many practitioners tend to develop their practice over a long time - and lose the foundation of their practice in the process. I'm an animist. More than anything else, I'm an animist. I grew … Continue reading Getting Back to Your Spiritual Roots

Secular Witchcraft Defined

Secular witchcraft is a rising star in the witchcraft scene but it's also one that is heavily misunderstood.
