Witches&Pagans #26.

That’s Faerie songstress and bard Sharon Knight on the cover, lending her enchanting presence to this special issue on the Element of Fire.

Get Fired Up: Thrill at the wonder, glory, and (let’s face it) danger of dancing with Fire in Phil Brucato’ guide to Pagan fire dancing “Brave Enough to Burn” and travel to the Land of Enchantment, as Amanda Morris shares the inside scoop on her magickal homeland in “A Witches’ Guide to New Mexico.”

Meet Bright Stars: This issue guest-stars a quartet of fascinating Pagan notables. Enjoy a conversation with Llewellyn author Thea Sabin (Wicca for Begginners and A Teaching Handbook for Wiccans and Pagans); thrill to our exclusive sit-down with the one-and-only gothic tribal mistress Sharon Knight of Pandemonaeon; and up-and-coming Australian witch and author Gede Parma.

Light Up Your Magick: Susan Harper teaches us to bring the mercurial element of Fire into our daily lives, Bri Saussy sheds light on Pagan uses for those ubiquitous Novena candles, and Cathie Rayes discusses what to do when “mirror spells” just aren’t enough.

PLUS Raven Grimassi on making herbal ashes for magickal work; myth and lore of trees; ancestral Fire worship; candle magick with Deborah Blake; solitary practice from Teo Bishop; John Michael Greer spikes Pagan myths about the “good olde days,” and Fritz Muntean warns us of the dangers of white-washing the “W” word.

Pagan short fiction and poetry, a rousing guest editorial by Valentine McCay-Ridell on the place of politics in Paganism, letters from readers, no-holds-barred reviews, and lots more!

Featured Classic Digital Issue

Celtic SpiritualityWeaving the Web
SageWoman #81.
Only $5.95. Save 14%.

The connections between women, Goddess, and nature have never been so lovingly described as in this luminous issue. We begin "Wheels with Wheels: 30 Years of Creating Women's Culture with the Motherpeace Tarot," an exclusive interview with co-creators Karen Vogel and Vicki Noble about the amazing process of bringing the first genuinely feminist Tarot deck into being.

Next is a triplet of articles on the magic of spiders (both literal and metaphorical) including Ashling Kelly's "Spin Me a Yarn," Marilyn Steele's "Spider Woman Speaks," and tapestry weaver Savitri Bess's spiritual memoir "Glimpses of Maya, Weaver of Creation." You'll look differently at our own webs of connection when you are finished reading these heartfelt stories.

Three more meditations on finding the Goddess in the wildness that surrounds us, even in the city, make up the next layer of articles. Julie McIntyre's "In the Presence of Wilderness" is an account of how she found the Goddess of the wild as a child, lost her connection, and returned to it as an older adult woman. M.C. Reardon's learns that moving from the country to suburbia that isn't as disconnected from nature as she feared in "Lessons from Deer Woman."

Priscilla Berggren-Thomas travels to Glastonbury -- but finds the Goddess in the presence of a familiar form in "Dances with Sheep," and you'll never look at a sand dollar quite the same way after reading Mary Zelinka's vivid evocation of the magic of connecting directly with the Goddess in nature, "Beach Combing."

There's so much more in this issue, too; Diana Paxson introduces us to the Norse Goddess of Weaving, Frigga; plus a new Goddess astrology column, crafting with clay, plentiful parsley, the Goddess on the Internet, and much more. 96 pages of juicy Goddess goodness.
