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

  • Why No One Loves Lammas (& Lughnasadh)
    Lughnsadh isn't an ugly duckling sabbat simply because we are disconnected from agricultural cycles. Beyond that usual explanation here are some reasons why Lughnasadh isn’t as popular as some of the other sabbats. Read more »
  • 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 »
  • The Know-Nothing-Witch
    There are many types of Know-Nothing-Witchery. There are those who truly know very little, and then those who know just enough to realize they'll never have all the answers. 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 »
  • Worship Is More Than Words & Offerings
    Worship is not something we do simply with words or offerings. Worship occurs when we acknowledge and appreciate the higher powers among us. 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.

  • That’s Not Our Paganism
    Like the Paganisms of old, our Paganism is ideally a place for free thinking and a variety of ideas. It's a place that accepts others for who they are, and wants those individuals to be true to who they are and their will. Our Paganism accepts and understands science, and has no place for people who want to place themselves at the top of the good chain. "The Druid Circle" stands against everything Modern Paganism strives to be. Read more »
  • A Solitary Beltane Rite: The Magick of Joining
    I'm guessing a lot of us are going to be doing solitary Beltane rites, and this ritual has the extra added bonus of being a bit of a self affirmation. If you are like me right now you might very well need a magickal pick me up! Read more »
  • No Man Is an Island: Remembering Dwayne Sortor
    Who we are as people are the sum total of all of our experiences, and many of those larger experiences are our interactions with others. One does not need to be well known or famous for their ripples to touch and change the lives of others for the better. Dwayne Sortor made lives better. Read more »
