Today, dear readers I would like to share with you some of my loves, best friends, anti-depressants, sleep-aids, holiday companions and muses. I am talking about books. Yes, I am a bibliophile. I have many favourite books that I go back to over and over again. Being a witch, and therefore having an interest in […]Read More Witchy Fiction
Since re-embarking on my spiritual quest, my destiny as a witch (or whatever I am calling it today) I have had a few moments when I re-remember things that I knew a long time ago, or did a long time ago perhaps even without knowing why and seeing things that I have always taken for […]Read More Re-remembering
I wasn’t sure I needed a wand but I had read the section on wands in Judika Illes The Element Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells with an interested and open mind (yes I have talked about this fantastic book before and will again I’m sure…I really love it!). I read about the different types of wands, buying […]Read More Wands and White Springs

Imbolc is one of them so I freely admit I have been feeling a little lost and inferior as my new community of friends and fellow witches on social media share Imbolc greetings and show their wonderful altars, ritual baths, mojo […]Read More Obligatory Imbolc Post
I am lucky, I live close to a magical place and can visit often. You may have heard of it, you may not, it is the West Kennet Long Barrow. It’s name smacks of modernity and is in my opinion a bit of a misnomer. A barrow to me says burial place, tomb or tumuli. […]Read More Visiting the Goddess
This is a journal of my awakening. I am reconnecting to what I’ve always known I should be but perhaps didn’t really have a name for. I am a witch. Thanks to a big kick up the backside in the form of ‘Witch’ by Lisa Lister, passed to me by my sister and following a […]Read More Welcome and thank you for popping by!
At least, I want to be. So for me the first step on my witchy journey, before I start thinking about Altars, Spells and Tarot is to turn myself into my own sacred space. This for me means connection, strength, purity, physical and mental wellbeing so it requires me giving up a few things and […]Read More I am my own Sacred Space…nearly
