Now Offering Witchcraft Classes for My Patreon Crew!

•June 15, 2018 • Leave a Comment

Over the next few months, I will alternate the release of Practical Magick and Eight Paths of Power classes for my Patreon crew. The plan is to offer one a month (so the longer you support Sable’s Privateers, the more you get.) These are more extensive and more advanced classes on magick and witchcraft than Sit for a Spell or the Tarot Essentials series I offer for free on my YouTube channel.

There are many more to come, and when they’re finished, I will continue offering Practical Magick classes that are designed specifically for web viewing! They will be offered as livestreams initially, and those livestreams will then be archived and made available ongoing for crew members, and for clients on-demand from my website.  (There are only eight courses in the Eight Paths, and there will be no newly-created episodes of those.)

Closed Captioning is currently available in the automatically-created YouTube variety, but I hope to improve that over time (because it’s not always the best).

This is a ten-minute preview of Practical Magick: Tarot for Beginners, Part 1, which I’ve just posted for my crew this month.

Practical Magick differs from Sit for a Spell in that, rather than showing simple spells or charms, I will teach larger and broader concepts in magickal theory. Future classes offered include Colour Magick, Psychic Self-Defense, Chakras, Making a Ritual Robe, Magickal Herbcraft, Crystals 101, and the second half of this series on Tarot. Future plans include Planetary Symbolism, Working with Magickal Time, Candle Magick, Poppets, and Flying Ointments (which might be pre-recorded, since there’s a lot of wait time involved as ointments cool.) I’m sure there will be more!

Here’s a preview of Eight Paths of Power: Intent – Class 2:

Eight Paths of Power is a course I was teaching as I wrote The Witch’s Eight Paths of Power, and many of its exercises are foundational in the book. You will even get material that didn’t make it into the book due to word count limitations! Each of the Eight Paths runs 2-3 hours all told, but I split them into shorter videos to make them easier to digest.

Have you seen my new Patreon video yet?

Now is a great time to join the crew at the Able Seaman ($5+ level) so that you can get all of them as soon as they’re released! Plus, after 3 months at the Able Seaman level, you get one of my Mp3 music albums for free (your choice which.)

Eye To The Telescope Call For Witches

•July 12, 2018 • Leave a Comment


The call is now officially out for the next issue of Eye to the Telescope. The final theme of 2018 is “Witches!” with guest editor Ashley Dioses.

“A witch is defined as someone who is said to possess usually malignant supernatural powers. Since speculative fiction covers fantasy and science fiction as well as horror, we’re going to focus on ‘usually’ in that definition. I want any take on witches with any gender. Horrific witches, saintly witches, pretty witches, ugly witches, witches from different planets, witches from different dimensions, historical witches with a speculative spin. I want witches performing rituals, witches celebrating the sabbats, witches casting spells or curses. I know sorceresses, conjurers, enchantresses are similar but they are not the same. I prefer traditional formal and metrical verse done well. Prose poetry is fine. For free verse, enchant me with imagery and beautiful language. That doesn’t mean archaic…

Madeline Montalban: The Magus of St Giles

An interesting take on Madeline Montalban. I agree that women in the early Craft are often overlooked.

Wicked? Homophobic wizards, gay witches and the fight for acceptance in the Wicca community

•July 1, 2018 • Leave a Comment

Unfortunately, this still seems to be a thing. I don’t understand how, since we believe “all acts of love and pleasure are Her rituals,” but there are those who argue from the “fertility” perspective. I strongly disagree with them.

Homophobia has become a prominent issue for witchcraft as it moves into the 21st century. I spoke to some purveyors of the dark arts to find out what’s going on…

The Sabbat Wheel made a lot of sense for our Pagan ancestors, for whom the seasons and their mid-points roughly corresponded with the Year-Wheel as we know it. But more and more, I’m finding that it makes little sense in other places, especially where I live.
