Our Katz

[Originally published in The Witch’s Corner newsletter, June 2011…Pixie passed away since this post was first published] Katz (Salem & Pixie, sitting in *their* spot at the livingroom windows, watching birds & squirrels at the feeders.) We have six cats, or Katz, in our house, and each one is a unique creature that stands out…

It’s said of cats that they can move magickally through time and space, visiting the Land of Fairy, where no human can safely travel.  It’s also said that cats can cross the boundaries of a magickal circle, a witch’s sacred space, without breaking the circle or disturbing the energy.  Cats are also very sensitive to…

Cat Magick: Herbs & Spells

Catnip is commonly used in sleeping potions. The easiest and most pleasant way I can think of to use catnip for this purpose is to make a delicious pot of tea. Catnip is one of the herbs that I grow in my own gardens, so all I have to do when I want to brew…

In the first place, they usually come to you, you don’t acquire them; and if you happen to, they may disappear quickly, quietly, and mysteriously; leaving hardly a trace that allows you to remember they were ever there. They return like actions for like actions, like emotions for like emotions…if you are cruel, they will…

From Hedgewytch Hollow: Storm Clouds, Spells, n’ More

On one evening, my husband called me out of the house and pointed to the sky. He said, “Look up.” And this is what I saw– a huge long cloud bank moving in. It looked ominous– the whole thing, which you don’t see here– like some big monster sneaking in the backdoor. It was really…

Random Thoughts on a Hot Day

I’m working on one of those in-depth 36 card tarot spreads. I’m not sure anyone really knows how much work they are.

Wytchy Chit-Chat: It’s Been a Long Week

I feel like I’m waking from a fog.  This past week I’ve been sick with the flu, in bed most of the time, filled up on Ibuprofen and cold medicine, sleeping off and on, and waiting for the moment I would feel normal again.  Well, that moment has finally come– ta,da!– and none too soon;…

Tea-Time with the Witch: Spring Arrives at Hedgewytch Hollow

It seems like Spring has had to labor especially hard to make its presence felt this year, but I found hard evidence that it’s finally arrived when I checked one of my flowerbeds this week.  The last time I’d looked, these daffodils were timid little sprouts shivering beneath last year’s dried oak leaves. We had new…

Tea Time with the Witch: Cats

In my humble opinion: Cats…they wreak of mysticism, they know what they know, and they keep secrets.  Cats don’t pressure you for emotions you don’t feel like showing.  They know when to crawl into your lap and seek your attention and affection; and they know when to retreat into the shadows, leaving your space open and…
