The Chaos Protocols, a book about magic to master the neo-liberal economy

The Chaos Protocols – Magic Against Neoliberalism

Gordon White’s The Chaos Protocols is a very NOW book. Magical techniques for navigating the new economic reality? Who can’t use some of that?

I love Kindle as it speaks to myRead More…

  Weather Magic is real and it begins with the Winds. Winds are the Air element, carrying messages and memories from other lifetimes. Every direction of Wind has an associated deity; some are more friendly than others. I know about compass directions – North, North East, East and so on.  I never got the point. Literally. Think: Mediocre navigation skills and booted out of Girl Scouts.  Aquarius Rising can knockRead More…

How To Have A Non-Naff Halloween

A Non-Naff Halloween? Sorted. This is from my good friend, the genius Marcella Kroll:  Celebrating the Witch’s New Year As we move into another season, and October gets closer to November, many begin to shift their attention to the festivities associated with this time of the year.
