Pagan Portals - Rounding the Wheel of the Year,  which was published exactly 6 months ago, has reached a milestone! My publisher, Moon Books, has told me it's sold more than 500 copies.  A big thanks to everyone who bought it, left reviews, or told me they've enjoyed reading it. In the book I go into the history behind seasonal folklore, annual customs and modern pagan traditions as well as offering practical suggestions for celebrating the turning of the year. Here's the description: "Every month is full of magic, each day has its own energy, and the seasons rotate as par ..read more

6d ago
Making More Mischief is an exhbition of folk costume that's currently on at the London College of Fashion's building on the bank of the River Lea in East London. It shows the variety of folk costumes in Britain, and explores the reasons people create them, wear them, and use them to perform traditional and annual customs.  I visited and took the pictures you can see on this post. All but the buttons are from the main gallery, which displays a variety of folkloric costumes I expect most of my blog readers will recognise, including those from Morris dancing, Jack-in-the-Green parades ..read more

Nature's Confetti is a beautiful animation of falling cherry tree blossom, and you can see it for free at the Now Building, behind Tottenham Court Road Underground station. I took the photo last weekend after teaching a practical magic class at Treadwell's and then doing a book signing. I felt I wanted to sit somewhere beautiful and chill out. This was perfect. The Now Building is a huge public atrium with LED screenson the walls, ceiling and everywhere except the floor. It shows a daily schedule of entertainment - usually short films, photography and animations. You can go in for free withou ..read more

In this post, a feng shui practitioner shares six tips for wellbeing. Sarah McAllister, founder of Feng Shui Agency, gives some pointers on how the ancient philosophy can help improve a home layout and also put residents at ease. Tip 1: Keep the space free of clutter “For the entrance way, keep it clear of clutter so that you don’t block the door opening fully, as this can cause the energy to stagnate,” Sarah says. “Keep the external and internal space brightly lit with an eco-friendly lightbulb, otherwise the area can become too dark and lifeless.” However, Sarah says the space doesn’t have ..read more

Here's a photo of me signing copies of Erosion, my new Gothic novel, at Treadwell's on Saturday. It was lovely to see everyone who turned up to chat and show an interest in the book. Erosion isn't officially published for a couple of weeks, but my publisher, Moon Books, was very helpful in getting copies to Treadwell's for this event. The shop still has a few signed copies left, so if you want one pop in or order online.  If you want a taster of what the book's like, I blogged a few days ago with a short extract, which you can read here: http://www.badwitch.co.uk/2024/04/sea-magic-e ..read more

Sea Magic: An Extract from Erosion, my Gothic Novel
A bad witch's blog
by Badwitch
2w ago
Erosion, my Gothic novel, is published this month. Here’s an abridged excerpt from it, to give you a taste of what's inside: Circle in the Sand “Charlie said that to do magic you need to make a circle and focus on what you really want. You can use a solid object and focus on that. A candle, or a wishbone or something. Then you let it go. You burn the candle or break the bone. You have to let it go, Charlie said, so it can come back true. That’s why you find broken things like swords left in lakes by people back in history. They were making wishes, making offerings to the spirits of the waters ..read more
