They are very powerful, and working with them on a consistent and ongoing basis can be very rewarding. The details of the origins and dating of the Elder Futhark are debated among scholars, but they appear in inscriptions between the second and eighth centuries.

You can also choose to listen and reflect all in...

Yule Strain Recommendation: Nebula a.k.a. Starcloud

Merry Yule Witches! Yule is definitely a favourite of the Sabbats, and not just because it is also my birthday. Since I was a wee lil’ witch the holiday season was kinda big deal in my home. We would decorate the house, put up a fresh tree and go all out on the food including baking homemade cookies and laying on the eggnog. As an adult, I love the joyful chaos of visiting loved ones, giving gifts and celebrating a year gone by. I also love the quiet, cozy and introspective aspects that come with the turning of the wheel....
