    This year, almost all of us are solitary. Pagans, Witches, Magicians… how can we celebrate this day? Here are a few easy ideas:

  2. Green Man

    Green Man. Who is he?

    He can be found in churches, chapels and cathedrals all across Europe. He dances in May Day processions in Britain. He appears on temple walls in India and in churches in Borneo.

  4. The pentagram - symbol of what exactly?

    Why is pentagram important to witches?



    "It is a symbol which Solomon conceived once To betoken holy truth, by its intrinsic right, For it is a figure which has five points, And each line overlaps and is locked with another And it is endless everywhere, and the English call it, In all the land, I hear, the Endless Knot." Poem of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight

    An ancient five-sided star

    A pentagram, a five-sided star, constructed by intersected five straight lines, is one of the oldest markings known to humanity. It is a symbol fraught with mystery, intrigue, and meaning.
