Appreciating Samhain as a Family
One day my daughter was peeling a hard-boiled egg. She said, "I wonder why eggs have so many parts: there is the shell, then the skin part, then the egg inside."I said, "Well, each part has its purpose."She turned to me and asked, "Do people have a purpose?"I smiled and said yes, that every person had a purpose, though we don't always know what that purpose is. "I thought so," she said, "but I just wondered."These are the kinds of everyday encounters that can instill in our children the sacredness of life and help launch deeper discussions. They also introduce the idea of metaphor; the egg is ..
10 Easy Steps to Learning the Tarot
It's easy to get overwhelmed when you come upon the tarot for the first time and try to learn the esoteric meanings for all the cards and the card combinations. The tarot lies at the very heart of modern Western magic, and to understand it requires at least a partial knowledge of various esoteric subjects, the most important of which are the elements, astrology, numerology, and the Kabbalah.One way to learn the basic meanings of the cards is to memorize them by rote, but there is another way, a much more organic and holistic way that I used when I was a beginner, and I will describe it for you..
As Within, So Without: Making Daily Mundane Activities Spiritual

I have always been a strong advocate of Pagans touching or connecting with the earth in some way. The earth, after all, is the primal source of our spirituality. It stands to reason, then, that any activity that causes you to physically interact with the earth can enhance your Pagan spirituality.

Creating A Clearing & Aligning Crystal Grid in Your Home
Any time is a great time to add a new energy clearing technique to your home. As we integrate positive changes, creating a crystal grid in your home can really shift the energy in it. (Everything that happens in your home gets imprinted energetically in each room; the crystal grid transmutes that energy so that it doesn't remain in the home.)Crystal grids can cleanse, align, and shield the energy in any home. When we set the crystals in any space, the points emit beams of energy that are projected into the space. The beams of energy can go through walls and all physical objects. Multiple cryst..

Every day of the week, Sunday through Saturday, is a magical day. Each of the seven days of the week has its own magical correspondences such as deity associations, colors, crystals, and herbs.

The trick is finding a way to apply these correspondences in a practical and fresh way to your Witchcraft.You may feel like you don't have much room in your schedule to add to your magical practice. Between your job, hauling the kids to soccer practice, walking the dog, and doing the laundry you've got maybe twenty minutes to spare for mag..
Cult of the Saints: An Introduction to Santeria
Ever wonder why statues of Catholic saints are sold in the same shop next to mandrake roots and Eleggua candles? How the saints joined forces with the African pantheon that would become Santería or Voodoo is a story dating back to the late 1600s.Huge populations of African prisoners of war, mainly from the kingdoms of Benin and Yoruba in western Africa, were enslaved and shipped to the Caribbean to work in mines and on cane plantations. The plantation owners baptized their slaves as Roman Catholics and prevented them from practicing their Pagan faith. But, recognizing similarities between the ..
The Rainbow Connection: Crystals and Color
You can tell a lot about a crystal by its color and the magical way that a crystal interacts with light. In fact, color may be the single most important factor you will need to know in order to work with crystals.Since the 1900s, when Isaac Newton used a prism to split sunlight into a rainbow of colors, scientists have recognized that light is a form of energy. That energy travels in waves, and the distance between each light wave is measured in terms of wavelength. Every wavelength has its own color—red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, or violet.In a way, color is an optical illusion. In..
Svadhisthana (The Sacral Chakra) Meditation
To begin the Svadhisthana meditation, find a comfortable position with your back straight. Close your eyes and begin breathing yogically. Breathe deeply through your nose without separation between inhalation and exhalation and feel yourself relaxing. Take your time and become conscious of your body by following your breath for about five minutes. After five minutes, bring your attention to your second chakra, right above your sexual organs. Then bring your breath to your second chakra. On each inhalation, feel the energy centered in your sexual organs increasing. You will feel it as a heat an..
Tarot as a Mirror
It is often said that tarot is a mirror. There are different ways of thinking about this. Some say tarot reflects back what you think, feel, or believe. Some say that it reflects back what you want to see. Some say that it shows you nothing more or less than your own potential. All of these are possible, and depending on what you believe about how tarot works, one or more of these may be at play when you work with the cards in any way. Whatever you believe, you can blend these ideas into one process that helps you identify your ideals and your practices so that you can be aware of the dista..

Baphomet Statue Shown in Castle
I always love watching a TV show or movie and noticing an item I carry featured in it! Most recently, it was while watching the "Hell to Pay" Season 8 episode of ABC's Castle starring Nathan Fillion which first aired May 9, 2016. Castle opens a secret vault in his PI office revealing a secret room full of occult items and information. The camera pans thru the mysterious room containing all manner of "scary" things and focuses for a moment on a statue of Baphomet - the statue by artist Maxine Miller which is one of our best sellers! Below are 2 screenshots I managed to snag to show you. I..

On of our favorite manufacturers, Ancient Treasures, is in the process of changing their US distributor and all inventory is currently in transit to their new warehouse while other pieces are in the process of being restocked - including items that have been out of stock for a long time!

Unfortunately, this means there are shipment delays as they get everything transferred and re-inventoried. At this moment, I don't kn..
