Welcome to This Crooked Crown!

Witchcraft is a highly faceted jewel. It’s an art form that can have incredible cultural traditions and rules, follow a leader on a particular spiritual path, or upbeat and modern. Magic is woven into the depths of every corner of our lives whether we realize it or not and gods and spirits move among us attending to their own agendas and lives. There is so much to the world that lies just beyond the physical eye and can be accessed by harnessing the very essence of life and wielding it to achieve our dreams and goals.

I believe magic is not lost to us. We do not need to sacrifice our smartphones and wi-fi to embrace the worlds of spirits or speak with the dead. We can cast a spell just as easily in pajamas between episodes on Netflix as we can in ritual robes deep in the tundra woods. Magic is a part of life and adapts to the user. Our will and minds are our tools, our hands the conductors of great acts of power. Sometimes that act of power is just making sure the street light stays green long enough for you not to be late for work and other times it’s for summoning down a powerful storm to lay waste to an enemy. These ancient fantasies and modern convenience do not need to be exclusives. My practice is practical and incorporates age-old concepts, folklore, and research with modern logic, sensibility, and science.

Adventurers and the curious are welcome. Ask questions, seek out answers from spells, to divination readings, to insightful guides. Whether you’re a new witchling just dipping their toe into magical waters or you’re an old hat with a long-held, established practice, you should be able to find something good, useful, and inspiring here.

Best wishes & journeys,

Samantha L. Davidson, Rev.
