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

  • 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 »

  • Expectations & Pagan Authors
    My early days as a Witch were heavily influenced by what I read, and one of the things I liked about the authors who helped me find my path was that they all felt accessible to me, something that I feel has long been a hallmark of Witchcraft writers and teachers. Read more »
  • Wicca & Cultural Appropriation
    As the largest and most noticeable subset of Modern Paganism, the mistakes of many Wiccans are often front and center. That does not meant the entire faith as a whole is built on a foundation of cultural appropriation. Read more »
  • A Solitary Imbolc Ritual
    For many of us, Imbolc is a time of transition, existing in a space and time between the seasons. Winter is still a reality for many of us, yet there’s something we can feel that lies just beyond what we’re experiencing. Imbolc is a great time for getting rid of the unwanted things we’ve carried forward into this new turn of the wheel and for preparing for the gifts we might yet receive. Read more »
  • Witchcraft Pet Peeves
    Many of the comments said with the best of intentions by other Witches are among my biggest pet peeves in the world of the Craft. And they annoy me so much that I felt the need to write about them. Read more »
