Solitary Wiccan Practice

Solitary Witches become more commonplace as the beauty of witchcraft is enjoyed for everyday practice, and people everywhere learn of the innocence and goodness that surrounds it!  Since there are no hard-fast rules, Wiccans everywhere are free to read and pull whatever information they choose to enjoy from within the craft, without ridicule, providing it is all done with good intent.

Solitary Wiccan practice also allows the practitioner to enjoy their beliefs at whatever time or place is convenient for them, as we all have different schedules and preferences with family life and work.

Some Wiccans are better working with harvests and festivals, while others are very good at ritual ceremonies.  Others yet, are seasoned well in spell work, while some are not.  Most witches share in common their love of our earth and enjoy the outdoors when weather permits.  Others spend hours on end near their hearth cooking and creating special recipes using herbs and spices.  Many of us do a little of everything.

You can be a good Witch and never cast a single spell. None of us will judge your devotion or performance!  Because of all the nonsense about Witchcraft that other religions create about us, solitary practice is growing at a rapid pace.  No one likes to be stared at with disapproval when disclosing our religious preferences.  Unfortunately many religions believe that they should be the only one, and I don’t see that changing in it’s entirety anytime soon.  Click here to learn more about Wiccan beliefs.

Magickal Summer Star-gazing!

July’s newsletter will provide all you need for a Magickal star-gazing celebration!  I’ve included many recipes, a spell and a continuation of the story everyone has been enjoying!  Thank you for the many compliments about the newsletter.  Please continue to let me know if there is something you would like me to feature in it!


Beltane & Pagan-Coming-Out Day

I would like to wish everyone an oh so bright Beltane!  Celebrate as you will in a way that brings spring happiness for you and those close to you!  Tomorrow is Pagan-Coming-Out-Day, and for those of you who are able, I wish you all the best and hope that you have considered your decision carefully.  Coming out does not make you a better Wiccan, or anything better than what you already are, or what you will have or be in your future.  It is a personal decision, so if it works in your life, so be it. If not, that’s just fine too!

Thank you for all the responses, as I always enjoy your feed-back!  My next newsletter will return to spell writing and how I do it.  But remember, you may create your spells any way you like, as what works for me may not work for you!


Wicca: After years of Witchcraft!

I began studying Witchcraft in the late 60’s, before the word “Wicca” ever arrived in my local bookstore. There was no internet to find instant information. You see, I’ve been in “the craft” for more than 40 years now. Yes, I’m an old Crone and feel I’m entitled to my opinions and have a lifetime of experience to back it up. Do I think I’m always right? Of course not! One thing is for certain. Things always change. Things like the way people communicate, the way others perceive Witchcraft, how we practice it, and why we do the things we do, etc.

It never ceases to amaze me how someone in the craft that is new (especially those in it between 4 to 7 years perceive themselves as an expert in Witchcraft, ready to correct a fellow Wiccan for the small things that make us all different. Like any religion, we are still individuals with preferences and favorite things about our beliefs that we like to hold on to, as well as a varied combination of life experiences. This is all good.

You can always tell a well seasoned Witch by the way she or he is accepting of the ways of others. You see, Wicca is all about love and acceptance in all things on earth, including the opinions of others. Just because we disagree doesn’t mean that it’s important to jump in, criticize, correct, push aside, or ridicule. I have always found that the best path in such cases is to stand back, and say to myself: “ Very well, they’re on a learning path”. In fact I personally feel that we all continue to learn until the day we pass, and some of us are just a little further down the path than others. There will always be another who feels their opinion is more important than yours.

Oh… and this a good thing!

I would like to apologize to everyone who has signed up for my newsletter.  I will be sending it out again regularly, starting in the later half of September.  I am an old Crone, and have not been well for some time.

My spell-work is getting back to the creativity level it once was, and it’s bringing me back to life in a most exciting way!  There’s much growth ahead for this website and myself, and I would like to thank everyone who has stopped by to learn and enjoy!

Thank you for being in my Wonderland, and for enjoying my past writings of enchantment, as I am anxious to get back to it right away!
