Coming soon! Witches&Pagans #35
"Natural Paganism"

Available in either paper or digital editions.This special issue features the stories of Pagans who find their spiritual center in Nature.

"I never ask myself -- as I sit at my altar to pray and offer and worship -- if my gods are really real. Because my gods speak through the wind, and the rain, and the night sky, and the colors at dusk, and those little cracks that open up in time when I stand still in the sun and hear bird-song and leaves rustling.

In those moments, I feel the earth move. And I move with it." (Aine Orga, "Gods of the Earth, Gods of My Heart", W&P #35).

Featured Classic Paper Issue

The Animal IssueThe Animal Issue
Witches&Pagans #20.
Only $8.95. Save 18%.

In this issue we wrestle with the messy, tangled, and even intractable questions of genuine relationship: honest ambiguity (“when are shamanistic techniques universal, and when are they forms of cultural exploitation?”), subtle definitions (“what is the difference between animal spirits and totems”), and surprise revelations (“what, you are my totem?”).

Join us as we meet far-ranging urban shaman and otherkin Lupa; trip through the ever-shifting shoals of the urban Witch’s playground, New York City, and probe more deeply into how totems choose us (instead of the other way around.) We also feature musings on the benefits of relationships with companion animals, the mysteries of polarity, avoiding the perils of dualism, how to make your own witchy jewelry, promoting a healthy magical mindset, and even how to prepare for the disposal of your magical “stuff” after you die.

Plus two short stories, a triplet of poems, and a true-life tale of post-mortem animal magic. It’s a rich, even heady, curry of ideas, people, questions (and sometimes, but not always, answers). Stimulate your thinking about these fascinating ideas! 96 pages.

On sale paper edition.
Also available in digital download.

Featured Classic Digital Issue

Herbal GoddessHerbal Goddess
SageWoman #85.
Only $5.95. Save 14%.


Celebrate the amazing world of women's herbalism with this special issue. Stories of healers, visionaries, and pioneers fill us with inspiration. Discover new goddesses, old remedies, and learn how close our own healing powers are in our homes and the natural world all around us.

Alexis J. Cunningfolk’s “Luminous: Using Moon-Centered Herbalism to Enchant and Heal” unveils how she connects the moon’s power with growing and using plant energy. We focus on three specific plant allies in Ann Spanel’s “Blue Vervain: Opening Heart to Spirit,” Rebecca Bailey’s “Asana of the Juniper,” and “Fierce Mother: the Brave Heart of Lady Hawthorn.”

Druid priestess Sharon Paice McLeod’s weaves a story of ancient Irish herbal traditions in “Beloved: Walking with Plants in the Celtic Tradition" while Ellen Evert Hopman (author of Scottish Herbs & Fairy Lore) unveils the winding tale of how she became a herbalist in “Seduced by the Greenwood.” Sage Kohutek’ back-to-the-land tale “A Passion for Plants” reveals how rooting in plant magic can connect an entire community.

Lore Mistress Diana Paxson reveals the mysteries of the Norse healing goddess Eir, whose magic focuses on prevention and treatment of ailments (both spiritual and physical) through natural healing in her detailed article on this goddess “Eir: In the House of the Healer.”

There’s still more in this nourishing issue: renowned herbalist Susun Weed on connecting with herbal allies; Allison Leigh Lilly’s musings on keeping hope in desperate times; Lizann Bassham remembers her recently-passed father; Anne Hill remembers her start in women’s healing practices; Teresa Marbut offers a recipe for soul-nurturing comfort soup, and Goddess thealogian Nancy Vedder-Shultz announces triumphantly “Only Death for the Patriarchy.”

Plus the Rattle, reviews, poetry, and a luscious selection of inspiring Goddess artwork in this 88-page issue, published in early January 2014.
