Wiccan Traditions and Paths

Generally speaking, although Wicca has a set of guiding principles, each coven lays down its own rituals and rules. However, they also incorporate the opportunity to learn, develop and grow and so can be seen to allow a certain amount of flexibility into their practices. The coven established by Gerald Gardner, Gardnerism, is guided by the rules set down by the man himself and is strongly founded on the principle of family although it is also considered by some to be...

The Charge of the Crone

Hear the words of the Grandmother of Time: She who has been known as Hecate, Erishkagel, Cerridwen, Kali-Ma, Anna, Perenna, Spider Woman, and many other names - some feared, and some loved, but none ever ignored.

Soulmates Yet frequently we hear of people searching for their soulmate. For that one individual who is our destiny...

The Time Between Casting and Manifestation

One of the most tense times for those who have spells cast on their behalf is waiting for the spell to manifest in reality. There can be little doubt that even when you have cast a spell yourself sometimes waiting for the outcome can be an anxious time particularly for the less experienced practitioner.
