7 Ways to Bring the Magickal into the Mundane

Creating a synergy between the magickal and the mundane promotes energetic flow in your life, helps you to deepen your spiritual practice, develops your intuition and spiritual skillset, and brings you closer to Divinity. Here are some simple yet powerful ways to infuse your normal “everyday” life with magick and the Divine.

June Full Rose Moon Ritual – Fighting Fear with Love

The June Full Moon is known by many names. In Europe, it is known as the Rose Moon, as the roses are in full bloom during this time. It is also known as the Strawberry Moon, the Flower Moon, the Honey Moon, and even (particularly pertinent for last week’s weather) the Hot Moon. During these long summer days around the solstice, the sweetness of life is full to bursting. The senses delight in nature, as we delight in our friendships and romantic relationships during this more social summer season.

Flames of the Firebird

I love the story of the Phoenix. A being, when tired of its outmoded life, surrenders itself to flame to be utterly consumed, and later rises from the ashes to be born anew. The winter that I started working with Cerridwyn, I also started to work with the energy of the Phoenix, the Firebird. I… Continue reading Flames of the Firebird

Why I Quit Caring About Formal Ritual and How That Made Me Better At It

I’ve always loved the idea of formal ritual. There’s something so entrancing about saying sacred words and processing deosil in a circle, about setting up a beautiful altar, about inviting in the elements with their representations, and about blessing the sacred space. These things are wonderful for getting into a magickal headspace, and doing them… Continue reading Why I Quit Caring About Formal Ritual and How That Made Me Better At It
