Working Magic...Let Go...

Working Magic...Let Go...




Saturday 1st October 2016 (if you are in the UK, in other parts of the world it may be Friday 30th Sept) brings the New Falling Leaf Moon...and with it the magic of autumn.

The leaves turn colour and the tree allows them to fall, it lets go because they no longer serve a purpose, they don't hang on to what they don't need any more.   Allowing the leaves to drop brings a time of restoration, storing and renewing energy and then the new, fresh buds arrive in the spring.

Let go of that which no longer serves, shake your branches to let any stragglers fall away, sweep clean to make room for some YOU time allowing you to breathe and then make plans for whatever comes next.

My altar is very clear, keeping it simple with just a candle and the hanged man card - symbolising a clearing out and decluttering and showing that in nature something dies to allow for new growth afterwards.  In nature sacrifices are made to allow new life to come forward.

Be like a tree...

Witchcraft...into the wilds



You won't be surprised to hear that I am currently writing another book...

Witchcraft...into the wilds 

I have been working on this for several months now and it still has a long way to go but I would like to invite you to take the journey with me...

I have been posting snippets from the book that I have written so far over on my Witches and Pagans blog   http://witchesandpagans.com/pagan-paths-blogs/hedge-witch.html

but I have also opened up a facebook page on which I will be sharing bits and pieces of relevant information that I find and discover along the way...you can of course use the facebook page to tell me what you would like to see in the book too!

I would love for you to join me: https://www.facebook.com/witchcraftintothewilds/


A book that leads us through the wilds of nature and back to the roots and bones of witchcraft, a natural witchcraft that works with the seasons and all the natural items that Mother Nature provides drawing on magical folk lore and a little bit of gypsy magic too. No fancy schmany tools or ceremonial rituals, this is about working with the source.

Mother Earth provides us with the changing of the seasons and within that turning of the year she gives us everything we need to work magic with from natural energy in the form of storms, rain and sunshine to tangible items packed full of magical energy such as seeds, leaves and stones.
