The topic of paganism for beginners gets brought up often. However, the amount of information on the internet along about paganism is astounding. As a pagan myself, I feel like I can give a unique perspective on whether paganism might be right for you as a beginner. Please know that these are solely my own opinions and they may not resonate with you. That’s okay!

Episode 73: Witchcraft Bandwagon – Why, What, and How to Prevent It

Episode 73: Witchcraft Bandwagon – Why, What, and How to Prevent It

Jumping on the witchcraft bandwagon is not what you may think. Today, I wanted to discuss how the witchcraft bandwagon might be affecting you, how you can recognize it, and what you can do to push past it.

I don’t mean that everyone who is now coming to the craft or to paganism is jumping on the witchcraft bandwagon. What I mean by this term is that as witches, sometimes we do certain things just because we see other witches doing it. This can lead to many issues in your witchcraft practice. So, are you guilty of this? Baby witches, take note!

Episode 71: Midsummer Celebrations || Historical and Modern Traditions

Episode 71: Midsummer Celebrations || Historical and Modern Traditions

Celebrating the Summer Solstice, or Midsummer, is a common theme among many pagan faiths and traditions. Though it may have many names, Midsummer is often seen as the midpoint between the dark and the light half of the year. At Midsummer, we encounter the longest day of the year and, after, we start our descent into the darker half of the year. Midsummer is celebrated on different days in the northern and southern hemispheres because it is an astronomical event.   

Episode 70: Using Non-Witchy Resources

Episode 70: Using Non-Witchy Resources

Inspired by Blood, Sweat, and Steel on YouTube, this week we discuss the importance of using non-witchy resources in your research and daily practices to help you be a better witch and pagan.

Scribd: https://www.scribd.com/

Before Blood, Sweat, and Steel talked about this subject, I actually hadn’t given it much thought. When we think of pagan resources or witchcraft resources, we normally think about content specific to those two topics. Now, though, I realize that there are several non-pagan resources that I use on a regular basis. It is important to understand that all of your resources don’t have to be witchy books, witchy apps, witchy websites, and witchy content. Learning how to use the resources at our disposal – pagan or not – can help you be a better and more well-rounded witch.
