Real Witchcraft in Your Toy Store

This kind of thing simply confounds me to the point of a good chuckle.  I don't take it seriously but I do like to turn it over in my mind.  What kind of a person sees evil in books which make fantasy and history entertaining?  What is their goal in dissuading the rest of us from even picking up such a diabolical item as a decorative book?  Do they really believe that they can remove all traces of other beliefs (even ones that are clearly intended only to entertain, such as books like these) simply by jumping at every shadow?

Most of all, however, I question why they worry over things like this when there are so many books, public events, and groups which do aim to share real witchcraft with children.  My own coven has always been keen to help even the youngest kids get involved in casting spells and discussing magical theory.  Our children have been raised Pagan since birth and have been privy to all kinds of magical work since then.  I have never resorted to books like these for teaching.  Instead, I work with actual witchcraft books.  Makes sense, right?

So whether you're like me and find it only amusing, or if this article makes you bristle, I hope you think about, talk about, and share your thoughts with me and others in the magical community.  After all, that's the real way we teach and learn.

About Me

My photo

My name is Quill and I've been practicing witchcraft for the past 17 years. 10 of those years I've been reading tarot and teaching.  I own a shop on Etsy called Quill's Occult Supply (check it out at QuillsOccultSupply.Etsy.com) full of handmade ritual and decorative items, spell components, and wild picked herbs.

I love to work with my hands.  Magic is a tool to shape our lives, and I'm using magic to shape tools to shape magic.  Cosmic! 

I use a lot of my favorite things in my shop: herbs, candles, wood, fabric, paint, clay.  And I get to carve, burn, grind, mold, think, dream ... I'm in the perfect business!

I've written 3 manuscripts for publication (2 non-fiction and 1 fiction) and am an avid NaNo-er!  I and my husband run a local coven called Orbis Prosapia, and our children are growing up surrounded by magic, mythology, fairy tales, Earth worship, art, open discussion, music, and humor. 

In addition to working on Ex Penna about my experiences as a professional witch, I also write for Scenes from the Circle about being a coven leader.
