Candle magic is an accessible form of magic to learn, as it can be learned relatively easily and doesn't require loads of expensive or rare tools or components to do. It's also pretty effective, once you know what you're doing. Generally, this involves picking a candle or candles of the appropriate colour; charging, dressing, or anointing them with oil; and sometimes carving them with certain symbols, names, or sigils. You can buy oils for different purposes, or have a go at making your own by steeping the relevant herbs in a carrier such as olive oil. Shorter, thicker candles are better than skinny tapers for candle magic, but use what you have on hand before going out and buying ...

I'm so excited that my book is coming out with Llwellyn this summer! Spinstress Craft: Magick for the Independent Witch rips the stitches out of the nasty old stereotype of the "spinster." Like reclaiming the word "witch," this is meant to take back the power owed to strong and independent womxyn. Yes, womxyn. This book welcomes all who choose to identify with the pages and ideas within. The alternate spelling of the word is meant to make room for an alternate definition. A more inclusive one.

I'm a writer. I'm a psychic astrologer, too, and tarot card reader, but that stuff, the metaphysical work, came later, much later, in my life. And not long ago, when I noticed that Saturn, planet of restriction and limitation, was readying himself to enter a certain part of my birth chart having to do with routine and daily life, I had a feeling. I had a feeling that my writing (along with other daily life habits), was about to take a hit. I had to get ready. I had to make a plan. Dear Reader, here's the whole truth and nothing but: I did not make a plan. I saw the transit coming from a mile away. (A transit is where a planet is now, in the sky, and how it might affect you.) I wasn't ...
