Misinformation and The Morrigan


Mythology is a fascinating subject.


I love stories more than I can express, and when working with a Goddess in your spiritual path it is important to engage with the stories that surround her.


I am not a reconstructionist.


There are others who are, who will give you that particular view point, but instead I am an evolutionist – I believe in both the importance of the mythology, and the evolution of Deity.


Sticking rigidly to scripture leads to spiritual death. It allows no growth – and the Shapeshifting Goddess understands that well in my experience.


We live in a weird age of both misinformation and bite-size social media.

Yesterday I happened upon a video on Tiktok which appeared to be authentic in its retelling of Her mythology… until it wasn’t.

When Bad Days Strike (And They Will...) Here's How I Turn The Day Around


When bad days happen, you can either run away and repress, or get curious and lean in. The prior might make you feel better in the short term, but the latter is what will help you build resilience, so bad days don't shake you quite so much.


I'm no stranger to both sides of the coin, and over the years, I'm happy to say I've learned and established a handful of healthy coping mechanisms that help light the way when the road appears dark. Because the truth is, bad days are bound to happen—but what really counts is how you choose to respond to them.


VR attraction brings visitors back to Ireland's last witch trials

A NEW tourist attraction is set to bring visitors back to the time of Ireland's last witch trials with the help of virtual reality technology.

The VR experience is part of a new exhibition on the Islandmagee Witches that opens at Carrickfergus Museum on September 9.


Created in partnership with academics from Ulster University, the 'Demonised: Possessed and Bewitched' VR tour puts users into the shoes of eight women and one man in the Islandmagee area of Co Antrim who were found guilty of witchcraft following trials in 1711.


It was claimed the accused, who were tried under the Irish 1586 Witchcraft Act, had performed rites targeting an 18-year-old woman, Mary Dunbar, who was said to have shown signs of demonic possession.

Ireland's last witch trial is to come alive through a series of exhibitions, workshops and events at Carrickfergus Museum this August.


Eight women and one man were tried and found guilty of exercising witchcraft on the body of young gentlewoman, Mary Dunbar in 1711, under laws set out in the Irish 1586 Witchcraft Act of 1586.


The 'Islandmagee witches' as they were known, were sentenced to a year’s imprisonment and to be pilloried four times on market day for six hours following their trial.


Revisiting the Lost Tarot Deck of Surrealist Leonora Carrington

In June, Surreal Spaces: The Life and Art of Leonora Carrington, an illustrated biography of the groundbreaking British-born artist was published by Thames & Hudson. In celebration, we take a look back at the hand-painted tarot deck she created.

The tarot deck is an attractive subject matter for artistic interpretation. Inviting an intuitive understanding of life, shaved down to one moment, its standard 78 cards frame illustrations that carry protean symbolism.


In 1955, the British artist Leonora Carrington created her own tarot, hand painting archetypes of the 22 major arcana, from a blue-and-white portrait of the Fool to a green Empress, pregnant and wild-haired. Little known to the public, they have reemerged with increased interest in the painter and writer since her death in 2011, at age 94.

A Coven of One’s Own: How Denton Built a Modern-Day Witch Community


The Every Witch Way (EWW) market provides a gathering space in Denton, TX for fans of the occult, magic and the metaphysical. Jesse Bernal


Witchcraft has made its way back to Denton with a community of occult practitioners and mystics.


The witches, or at least those among them who called themselves that, gathered under tents lining the side streets of Denton’s downtown square selling handcrafted wares — jewelry, plant terrariums holding foraged animal bones, paintings, homebrewed teas, elixirs and baked goods. Tarot card readers offered spiritual insight through cartomancy or by breaking down astrological charts, while others waited in line for craft cocktails by the Hemlock Fox mixologist.

These aren’t the big witchy bazaars, traveling from one major metro area to another, and charging hefty admission fees as they fill convention centers with tables and booths exhibiting mostly imported wares, although those events are making appearances on occasion.
