Using tarot for healing.

How do you build relationships with spirits? On a related note, see “Working with demons” by Marie RavenSoul.

Tips for how to see and interpret auras.

On ancestral magick. Also see “How to build an ancestor altar” by Susan Starr, “Ancestor work: Not just for Samhain” by Donyae Coles, and, of course, Ancestor Work Fundamentals, the incredibly detailed course from Kalagni.

What you can do when your spiritual practice gets a little quiet. Jason Miller recommends doing it anyway.

Getting handfasted? Here are some suggestions for how to tie the knot (literally).

Reflections on whether or not it’s safe to practice your spirituality in your own backyard. Especially when you know it might not be. Then again, if you make it your own sacred space, it’s a shame not to use it for that purpose.
