The power of candlelight

I have always loved candles.  The light, the mood, the warmth and the atmosphere they bring with them.  When a candle is lit it can give you so many feelings and enhance so many moods.  Love, romance, mystery, power, magic, celebration, joy, respect, mourning and more.  We have a lot of candles in our house and I love to light them as often as I can and sit just by candlelight and reflect on the day, or cuddle up on the sofa with hubby and the girls and watch a movie by candlelight. The soft light of the flame draws

Is being a Witch…’difficult’?

I was asked the other day if being a witch was ‘difficult’.  I replied, with “do you find it hard being a Christian?”,  strangely enough they left me alone after that 😉 but it made me think about how I see my life and how witchcraft ties in with it. I don’t actively try to ‘be’ a witch because it is just part of me, so for that part at least it is not hard at all.  However, the prejudice can be.  In this day and age, you would think that people would have got over the whole ‘you must

The term ‘Fluffy’

If you are a Witch, the term ‘fluffy’ is banded about on a daily basis.  The actual dictionary definition of ‘Fluffy’ is: fluff·y (flŭfˈē) adjective fluffier fluff·i·er, fluffiest fluff·i·est a. Of, relating to, or resembling fluff. b. Covered with fluff. Light and airy; soft: fluffy curls; a fluffy soufflé. a. Light or frivolous: a fluffy musical comedy. b. Lacking depth or precision; fuzzy: hazy, fluffy thinking that only confused the matter. Basically, a Fluffy is someone who ‘plays the part’ but has no real craft.  An airy fairy wannabe. Now, there are a lot of Trad Witches out there, who

I am a Witch, not a Wiccan.

Before we start, can I just say that I am not anti ‘Wiccans’. So prior to people getting their knickers in a twist (ouch!) please read the whole page before commenting. Thanks! When I tell people I am a Witch, about 95% of the replies I receive say “So you’re Wiccan?”….No. I am a Witch, because I use magic, therefore I practise Witchcraft. This means, I do whatever I need to, when I need to. Witchcraft dates back thousands of years to it’s roots in folk magic/village wise women, where as Wicca was created in the 1950’s. A witch does

Combining Crystal Healing and Numerology

Crystals, Gems & Metals

Crystals have been used throughout history for their healing and magical qualities. Many people believe that each stone emits a certain energy which can have a beneficial effect on our well being. Stones can be carried around with you from day to day to help.  As with all ‘tools’, crystals are not required to cast a spell (nothing is apart from you!) however, they do make great gifts and are also used widely for crystal healing. Agate Tones & strengthens body/mind/spirit, imparts a sense of strength & courage. General healing, ease pain from bruises, strains and sprains. Alexandrite Soothes nervous

Herbs & Magical Properties

These should never be eaten or drunk without talking to a qualified herbalist first.  Please check with a herbalist or a doctor before you make any brews or ingest these herbs. Always check before you use any herb because some herbs can stop conventional medicines working.  Herbs can heal and help with spell work, but herbs can also kill. BE CAREFUL AND ALWAYS CHECK FIRST! Herbs marked with a * sign next to it should not be drunk or eaten without being given by a herbalist as they can be extremely dangerous. Absinthium – * Healing, good health, fights off

Colours & Magical Properties

Using correspondences such as colours, or tools such as cauldrons etc are not needed in witchcraft at all, I rarely use anything!  All you really need is YOU.  However, sometime it is also nice to ‘set  the scene’ or use colours and tools when making art and craft items for friends. You can use colour in many ways in the Craft, such as ribbons, colours of text, candles, altar cloths, clothes, jewellery and more.

What are Spells and Spellcraft?

Spells and spell craft are just one type of magic and this kind is very personal as it harnesses and releases your inner personal power and energy. It is just the same as a prayer.  You want something to happen and therefore you are thinking with intent. You will see on in books literally thousands and thousands of spells for one thing or another but the best spells are always the ones you write yourself (or at least adapt in some way!). A traditional witch practises magic everyday, casting spells is just ‘something we do’.  Just like Christians would ‘pray’

What is a Village Witch?

Traditional witches do not follow any rules as such. They do not have a rede (Wiccan rede or otherwise),  they do not follow the threefold law or any dogma or religious writings.  Because of this traditional villages witches will do whatever they feel is needed for any particular situation.  Witchcraft is neither good or bad, neither white or black. It is the intent of the witch which sways each spell, blessing or rite’s outcome. It is deemed honourable for a  witch to do anything they need to, to protect their family, friends and possessions. A traditional witch is responsible for
