Witchcraft has a truly ancient history behind it, but in its modern form it can be traced back
to the occult revival of the late 19th and early 20th century. Modern witchcraft has been pieced back together from old texts
and the remnants of oral traditions, drawing on what is known of other magickal and pagan traditions to help fill n the gaps;
despite this the old traditions have resurfaced, the most popular being Wicca and other including the Northern Tradition.
Witchcraft is essentially a philosophy of nature worship and natural magick and healing, but for many people it is also a
celebration of the divine feminine - our mother earth, deity of life and love, the substance of creation, rather than our
father in heaven, deity of the dead and of justice / adjustment, the impetus of creation. In todays world, facing environmental
catastrophe, a revival of nature spirituality has the potential to be a great force for good.
