College Witchery

I really like this tarot deck… Actually, it looks like she has 2 decks at least. Either way, I want to know what they are.
Maybe I should learn tarot first though. XD

If you want to read this (which I haven’t yet, but I want to because it’s from 1906 and just sounds really interesting) just pop it into your internet search engine of choice and you can find it on the internet.

I might do a review of this text at some point on my blog - perhaps repost it here, etc. etc.

Paul Huson’s “Mastering Witchcraft”

In the lead-up to Halloween, there’s a really excellent series of posts going up over @ Trowthy’s blog: The used key is always bright, in which a series of “pagan celebrities” will be going through Paul Huson’s Mastering Witchcraft and responding to various chapters, like a cool online book club full of BNPs (“Big Name Pagans”).

Quite some time ago I was at one of the used bookstores in my hometown with Benjamin, and I happened to come across a copy of Mastering Witchcraft, and damn - I fell in love. It’s such a good book - and this online discussion is prompting me to read along with some prominent pagan figures and re-examine a text that really makes me fall in love with witchcraft all over again.

UPDATE: It’s done. Over. It was so good! Here are all the updated links:

Introduction - Sarah Lawless from The Witch of Forest Grove

Chapter 1 - Jason Miller from Strategic Sorcery

Chapter 2 - Harold Roth from The Alchemist’s Garden

Chapter 3 - Hyperion from The Unnamed Path

Chapter 4 - Deborah Lipp from Property of a Lady

Chapter 5 - Peter Paddon from The Crooked Path

Chapter 6 - Robert Artisson from Tracks in the Witchwood

Chapter 7 - Mrs. Drinkwalter from North of Berkley

There was nothing about this that I didn’t love. Ever since I picked my copy of Mastering Witchcraft up at the local used book store I was hooked, and nothing compliments a reading of this text like commentary from some remarkably well-known people in the pagan blog-o-sphere, and some really well-known authors.
