Ayslyn’s Fertility Spell

Ayslyn’s Fertility Spell

This spell, like most of the others on Ayslyn’s Corner is one that I’ve written, so it’s been customized to include things and concepts I felt were appropriate and was comfortable with. As with any spell, you as a practitioner should never be afraid to alter what someone else has shared. Magic worked in its … Continue reading

Pentagrams Everywhere

Pentagrams Everywhere

Has anyone else seen this story about the mother who saw pentagrams in her kid’s school bus’ brake lights and freaked out? She apparently decided to call out the local school district for allowing the offensive, demonic symbol on the bus, telling her local media outlet that anyone who fears god should be outraged.

Cruelty Free Eating for Wiccans

Cruelty Free Eating for Wiccans

The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity.

This is clearly one … Continue reading

Recovery Uncertain

Recovery Uncertain

Every once in a while I come across truly beautiful poems that connect on a spiritual level. It can be difficult to communicate some of the spiritual aspects of Wicca because our faith is one of inner intuition, of feeling and quiet understanding that language cannot always grasp. This one was so beautiful, I wanted … Continue reading

Spell to Heal a Wounded Tree

Spell to Heal a Wounded Tree

Over the weekend, a company came out to the house to trim back several of our trees and remove one that had been died. I watched them work on the dead tree first, taking it down piece by piece, careful of the house and the back deck, and was not entirely sad to see it … Continue reading
