Witches in Solidarity with Sex Workers

It’s taken me a few days to collect my thoughts on this and put some word together. This is important and I don’t like to rush when things are important. I’m still not sure these are the right words, but they’re the word I have. Last week, OnlyFans announced that they will begin banning sexually … Read more

Is Social Media Un-Spiritual?

I’ve been logging off my social medias for the weekend, every weekend, for the last 9 weeks. And if 9 weeks of taking weekends off social media has taught me anything it’s that taking social media breaks is not the life-changing panacea folks claim it is.

Re-imagining Growth: Structure and Freedom in Magic, a.k.a. how I’m navigating a changing magical practice as a professional witch

A photo of Lex on a log next to a river looking up at the sky during early spring. The image is pink tinged and text on top contains the title of the blog post.

I have a confession: My magical practice is changing. I haven’t celebrated a Wheel of the Year holiday since Samhain. New and full moons have largely faded from my magical work. I’m moving away from my folk Catholic practice. And at the same time, I’m deepening my relationship to the Swamp in which I live; … Read more

Dreams Are Not Enough: Magic and Action for the Spring Equinox

Spring has been springing and now it’s well under way. The river outside my window, as I write this, is free of ice, flowing, shimmering in the sunlight. And oh! The sunlight!
