Do you ever wonder where the cute sayings witches say to each other come from? Well most of them come from witch trials records, nursery rhymes, hymns and fraternal order rites.

Merry Meet, Merry Part and Merry Meet Again is a sweet sign off that a lot of witches like to end their emails and blog posts again. Here are two lovely places I found the term associated with partying!

Five ways to Establish a Local Traditional Witchcraft practice

Posted by spiritscraft on September 9, 2016 at 12:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Traditional witchcraft is an animist folk magic practice at its core, therefore, locale is very important. Most popular witchcraft traditions are European while many witches like myself live in North America or elsewhere from where their favorite witchcraft is native.

I love divination! But sometimes I don't have any idea what to ask the tarot. I already have a dark haired handsome boyfriend. I like my job. Most things seem pretty well in balance.

Posted by spiritscraft on August 28, 2016 at 8:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I am totally nerding out trying to decipher the scribbles that this sorceror made. I made a breakthrough this morning that helped me translate about half of the symbols!

Most of the symbols are astrological and alchemical, but a few are based on hebrew too. The challenge is that the sorceror uses some symbols that are not standard zodiac symbols, but I am figuring out standard ones are missing, a...

I am stuck in the car a lot, driving to my part-time job, to my boyfriends, to my coven meetings and to my mentoring sessions. I can be in the car over two hours a day, and I can tell you I have grown tired of the current offerings of all the major types of music stations country, hip hop, rock, oldies, and pop.
