Bringing the Magic Home:
In this summer issue, we discover the many ways to create a magical home.
In Our Theme Section:
- Kitchen Magic
"Food for Thought: Wandering Witch Visits Cucina Aurora." Our ever-traveling correspondent Natalie Zamen visits with entrepeneur, magickal chef, and kitchen witch extraordinaire Dawn Hunt, to talk about her work in making magic delicious. PLUS: in "Green Magick" Stacey Carroll introduces us to the magical properties of common household herbs and spices.
- Protect & Harmonize
Voudou traditions are religions born and tempered through slavery, oppression, and hardship. In "Be Prepared: Protect Your Home with Voudou" Lilith Dorsey shares some of her path’s hard-won protection workings. MORE on home-making magic: Whitehurst draws connections between Western esoteric magic and the Eastern art of feng shui, and teaches us how to bring more balance and harmony to your home in "Feng Shui for Pagans."
- Home & Hearth
How does a witch become a mother?" For Christine Hoff Kraemer it all started with a fertility spell. She tells her story in “Priestess of the Flesh." In our outwardly-focused age, the goddess Hestia has largely been overlooked. Let Lisa McSherry introduce you to this most essential goddess — that she first met on a trip to Rome — in "Hidden Hestia: Goddess of Hearth & Home."
