Bringing the Magick Back!

It feels like forever since Magick Magazine had its last print. Issue 7 came out for the Winter 2017, and for a while it looked like it was going to be our last edition. 7 might be a lucky number for some, but even though the finished product was excellent in quality and content, behind the scenes, the production and distribution of our magazine was plagued with problems.
While Magick Magazine remained a passion for Editor in Chief Shé DMontford, her busy life took her in different directions away from her beloved magazine. Our dedicated subscribers and online readers however were not so keen to see the last of their favourite magazine and began petition Shé as to when issue 8 would be published.
It was around this time that Shé reconnected with her awesome, talented, good looking and fun to be around friend from primary school, Joolz (coincidentally also the author of this blog!). Together Shé and Joolz hatched a plan to share the tasks, and bring the Magick Back!

I am so excited to announce that issue 8 is being created as I write this and it is going to be a corker! Amazing interviews, photos from this years events (you might even find yourself in there!), spells, information, competitions and so much more. Thank you for your patience in waiting for this one. I assure you, it will be worth the wait.
Bright Blessings,
Joolz.

Find out what Fiona Horn, still looking divine at 53, has been up to and how magick has shaped her life. here’s a taser of the interview:

“My first aid mission that I coordinated and flew was February 2017 ….When I saw these kids (in need), it was like a light bulb went on in my brain and I ‘prayed’ to ‘my idea of God/dess’ and asked – ‘Please help me grasp the knowledge and skills necessary to fly and I will donate my time and skill to aid work to help children and families like these.’ And suddenly, I could remember all the airspace rules, regulations and V speeds and flows and maneuvers and aircraft systems, and comprehend and use the information safely and effectively…. The magick I practice now is a way of life, a way of identifying how to be of service, and how to be the best version of myself so that I can be useful in the world. …I suggest to people that the way to make your ‘spells work 100% of the time’ is to identify how they can serve others. “

…..and there is so much more


Over the next few weeks we will be giving you teasers of the articles you will be able to expect in the next issue-
Remember share the magick with your friends and stay tuned for more

Paganism Growing Astronomically

Witches Outnumber Presbyterians in the US

The population of self-identified witches has risen dramatically in the United States in recent decades, as interest in astrology and witchcraft practices have become increasingly mainstreamed.

While data is sparse, Quartz noted, the practice of witchcraft has grown significantly in recent decades; those who identify as witches has risen concurrently with the rise of the “witch aesthetic.”

“While the U.S. government doesn’t regularly collect detailed religious data, because of concerns that it may violate the separation of church and state, several organizations have tried to fill the data gap,” Quartz reported.

“From 1990 to 2008, Trinity College in Connecticut ran three large, detailed religion surveys. Those have shown that Wicca grew tremendously over this period. From an estimated 8,000 Wiccans in 1990, they found there were about 340,000 practitioners in 2008. They also estimated there were around 340,000 Pagans in 2008.”

Pew Research Center studied the issue in 2014, discovering that 0.4 percent of Americans, approximately 1 to 1.5 million people, identify as Wicca or Pagan, meaning their communities continue to experience significant growth.

The rapid rise is not a surprise to some given philosophical and spiritual trends in culture.

“It makes sense that witchcraft and the occult would rise as society becomes increasingly postmodern and rejects the hypocracy and domineering control of Christianity.” she said, ”Because it’s a ‘pre-Christian tradition’ that promotes ‘free thought’ and ‘understanding of earth and nature.'”

Similarly, radio host and author Carmen LaBerge noted on Twitter that the figures are striking in that witches outnumber certain Christian denominations. “As mainline Protestantism continues its devolution, the U.S. witch population is rising astronomically. There may now be more Americans who identify as practicing witches, 1.5 mil, than there are members of mainline Presbyterianism (PCUSA) 1.4 mil,” she said Tuesday.

Companies like cosmetics giant Sephora have attempted to capitalize on it, marketing a “Starter Witch Kit” to consumers interested in dabbling in witchcraft. In October 2017, Market Watch reported that the psychic services industry grew 2 percent between the years 2011 and 2016, an industry now worth approximately $2 billion.

Rather than deeming everything that is supernatural ‘demonic,’ the Church needs to wake up to the reality of this realm and begin to approach it from a perspective which understands its place and purpose,” said Wanda Alger, field correspondent with Intercessors for America and a pastor at Crossroads Community Church in Winchester, Virginia, in a CP interview at the time.
