Latest Witchcraft, Wicca and Pagan News

All the latest witchy news from around the world. On this page you can find the latest news and relevant information for Pagans, Wiccans, Witches, Druids, Heathens and all walks of the Pagan Community.

It is with great regret that we announce the passing of Raymond Buckland, an elder of the craft who will be sorely missed. His importance to the growth of both Wicca and Paganism cannot be overstated as he introduced Wicca into America in 1964, ultimately leading to the massive growth in the community there and elsewhere. He went on to write around sixty books that have been translated into seventeen languages, further extending his influence around the world. He has been a spokesperson for the craft in America for over five decades. Our sympathy and best wishes go to his family and friends at this difficult time.

Blessings from everyone at Children of Artemis,
may his spirit find it’s way into the Summerlands

    There are probably hundreds of different Wiccan (or Wiccan-style) traditions in the world today.

  • Beginning Witches: They’ll Be Fine
    No matter the time or place, there will always be some young and/or new Witches who do some dumb stuff. Maybe someone conjures up Manon or decides it will be fun to insult the Morrigan. Such decisions are not an indictment of Pagan/Witch resources or a sign that the next generation will ruin the Craft. Read more »

  • Books Aging Poorly: Scott Cunningham’s “Wicca”
    Scott Cunningham's "Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner" is now over thirty years old, and parts of it have aged poorly. It's certainly not a bad book, but it's very much a product of its time. Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism are constantly evolving so this shouldn't be much of a surprise. Most Witchcraft books don't age we why would Cunningham's "Wicca" be any different? Read more »
  • Liminal Gateways & Porous Boundaries
    The boundaries between our world and that of literature and film is not as absolute as some make it out to be. Something becomes a part of Witchcraft or our magickal worldview when we decide as individuals that it has, which means all sorts of things are on the table. Read more »

  • Through the Looking Glass: The Pagan Community After Covid-19
    I am not a seer. I don't own a crystal ball, and while I own several decks of Tarot cards, I haven't read for anyone in over a decade. However, I do think there will be lasting changes to the landscape of the Pagan Community in the wake of coronavirus and Covid-19. Like everyone else, I want things to "return to normal" as soon as possible but I can't shake the suspicion that at the end of this there will be a "new normal," and it might not be one we like very much.
