The Faery Faith in the Temple of Witchcraft

12 September 2014

CHRISTOPHER PENCZAK. Faeries and Witches… Witches and Faeries… two archetypes inexorably linked in my own mind, yet in the outer world, many assume the two have nothing to do with each other. Some stories claim that Witches are the descendants of Human and Faery relationships, and the Witch-blood of legend is actually the blood of the faery folk.[...]

GREEN OWL. I will be decorating my seasonal altar this weekend with butternuts, grains, leaves, fruits and nuts.
