Year of the Witch: Connecting with Nature’s Seasons through Intuitive Magick

When we think of the wheel of the year, the Wiccan wheel with its celebrations of the Yule, Beltane, Mabon, and Samhain come to mind. But what about a wheel of the year for the rest of us pagans and witches? As a witch living in sunny South Florida, longtime hereditary witch Temperance Alden has often felt at odds gearing up to celebrate Yule, for example, when it is 76 degrees and sunny outside.

Year of the Witch

will help readers create their own intuitive practices in harmony with the climate, culture, and local spirits where they live. It’s of interest to witches coming off the Wiccan path and looking for a more personal approach to celebrating the rhythms of nature. Year of the Witch covers all aspects of this new, seasonal practice:

  • The origins of the neo-pagan wheel of the year and why it is still so relevant today
  • Culture, historical facts, and traditions associated with the major ceremonies
  • Basic principles of land-based magick
  • How to intuitively connect to the nature below your feet and the local gods
  • Being a custodian to the land and its impact on our spiritual practice

hi, looking for witchy friends!

i’m an eclectic pagan, as well as a witch. it’s been more than 6 months since i’ve started practising witchcraft, and i’m really interested in divination, cristals, demonology, black magick, draconic magick, the fae, herbs, angels, and anything similar.

i’m a minor, however, i’m older than 15, so i don’t think i’d be comfortable with anyone older than 20.

i am a right-hand witch at the moment but i’ll start working with demons as soon as i get more experienced. i work with Lady Artemis and Lord Apollo, as well as my spirit guides. so yeah! it doesn’t matter if you work with different deities, i wrote that just for information ^^

i also refuse to be friends with you if you think boys can’t be witches, support trump, are homophobic/transphobic, ableist, racist, just a bad human being 🥰

Annie Finch, from “Samhain”
She leaves this trail
through a shudder of the veil,
and leaves, like amber where she stays,
a gift for her perpetual gaze.

Samhain wasn’t looking good when I got him. He was bone dry and covered in scale. I cut everything back and left him outside hoping he would come back. Looks like he did! I’m happily surprised.

do you celebrate the sabbats on the same days as the north (yule in december) or do you celebrate by the solstice dates (yule in june) ??

personally i celebrate with the northern hemisphere just because it’s easier with decorations and non pagan family but i like both and would like to do a bit of both
