It has happened to us all: you're on the road, on a plane, or staying at a lovely hotel in a foreign country and find yourself without your witchy wares when you need them. When you are far from home and need that spell done, what are you going to do? Are you going to find a local shop and spend hundreds of dollars to repurchase all your magickal supplies? If you've got that kind of disposable income, go ahead. Are you going to wait until you're home, days, weeks, or months later? Of course not, not when there is a practical solution: use what you have! In my book, Paganism for Prisoners: Connecting to the Magic Within, I discuss how to improvise rituals in a space that doesn't allow for ...

I feel it is safe to say that many of the most important sagas and tales of Norse Cosmology revolve around Loki in one fashion or another. And I also feel it is very safe to say there are few in the world today that have not heard of Loki thanks to Marvel Comics and Tom Huddleston.

In this book I explore the last five ogham of the Aicme Ailim that make up the vowels and the last five ogham of the full twenty-five Ogham alphabet. These lase five were added later to the alphabet to accommodate Greek and Latin and are known as the Crane Bag gifted from the Sea God Manannán to add extra wisdom to the teachings.

"Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog" are ingredients recited as part of one of the most famous witchcraft spells in Western history. Perhaps it's more recognizable by a phrase repeated later, "Double, Double Toil and Trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble." When Shakespeare penned these words in 1606, he was not copying verbatim a local magical spell, but rather he was mockingly representing assorted popular witchcraft lore, or so modern academics now believe. It wasn't a real spell, but it was real-ish. Similarly, American film and television writers have also relied heavily on lore and their imaginations to define witches and their craft. "Filigree apogee ...
