Scented candles can work in place of herbs, all that matters is your intention. Essential oils also work in place of fresh herbs, just remember to dilute it before putting it on your skin! Always check your city/state laws about collecting rain water for spells.

Weekly Staff Pick: Pendulums, The Entrance to Divination

2019021619175120190216194438368Want to get into divination but Tarot decks are don’t mean anything to you yet? Pendulums are the answer! They also give the answers. My first forray into divination was a simple pendulum, made out of a necklace chain and a ring, after I saw it done in an episode of Charmed. Now I have crystal and metal pendulums that resonate with my own energy better than a simple ring ever could. A pendulum is one of the easiest and simplest forms of divination, which is why I chose it to be my staff pick of the week. The easiest way to use it is to ask it yes and no questions, then you can move onto pendulum boards to have it spell out the answer for you. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s more affordable than a deck of tarot cards

.Come on in to the Candle Wick Shoppe to get your own!

Magic, Witches and Paganism - A Venn Diagram

ArticleLiveTheMagic 470sqI read a random question on social media, “Are Pagans addicted to magic?” I found that a fascinating question because it assumes so many things. It assumes that all magical practitioners are pagan, and all pagans practice magic. The comments went to referencing witchcraft and magic and paganism all as the same thing.
