The Temple of Witchcraft offers:
Spirit, Community, Education
in Salem, NH and online.

Co-founded by Christopher Penczak, Steve Kenson, and Adam Sartwell, the Temple of Witchcraft started in 1998 as a system of magickal training and personal development, and eventually developed into a formal tradition of Witchcraft.

Now, as an outgrowth of the work of students, initiates, and graduates of the programs, the Temple of Witchcraft has evolved into an organization based on traditions of modern magick, Witchcraft, and neopaganism.

Spells for a Better World: Dream of Utopian Peace

We at the Temple of Witchcraft have been looking for ways to do outreach so our distant members can feel connected to the greater work of the Temple. The Pisces ministry presents a full moon circle here at the Temple's home in Salem, New Hampshire, every month. This year our focus for those moon circles is spell work. We were inspired to produce some spells that will be used at the Temple full moons and make them Read More...

Update: Fundraiser for Elizabeth Graham

Doctors report that Elizabeth has survived injuries that are usually fatal. After life-saving surgery at Catholic Medical Center in Manchester, NH, Liz was transported to a larger hospital via helicopter. Doctors followed up with exploratory surgery and closed up their incision days earlier than expected and have now removed a catheter and shoulder line. Visitors report Liz is somewhat conscious, able to squeeze hands, wiggle their toes and open their eyes and indicate awareness even by attempting Read More...

Temple Astrolog: Seize the Moment

On a collective plane, we have all been working on some karmic issues for what seems a long time. Pluto (death, transformation) has been travelling with both Saturn (karma) and the south node (karma again, and the past) in Capricorn (once again, karma). To say the least, it has been exhausting and many of us are tired to the bones (ruled by Capricorn and Saturn)! The good news is that, right now, Pluto is making some wonderful Read More...

Finding Your Place in the Temple

by Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle When co-creating the Temple of Witchcraft's paradigm and structure, we tried to create an esoteric pattern that would serve it well into the future. We have a service-oriented “ministerial church” at the foundation of the Temple, divided into the twelve astrology signs, each with three major areas of focus, like the three decans of each zodiac sign. Each of the twelve lead ministers is encouraged to have three deputies to Read More...

Fundraiser for Elizabeth Graham

The morning of Sept 5, 2019, Elizabeth Graham experienced a major auto accident. Suffering broken ribs, a collapsed lung, lacerations to their spleen and liver, and internal bleeding, they continues to receive medical care and treatment for their injuries. Pursing their dreams of a writing career and self-employed crafter, Liz currently has no medical insurance and needs our help. Beloved in many communities, we are asking for your contributions to held cover life expenses for Liz and Read More...

Pagan Earth Alliance

The Temple of Witchcraft and our Taurus Ministry are proud to support the Pagan Earth Alliance. From their website, PEA President Kansas Stanton explains his, and the organization's, vision: I don’t know when environmentalism really began for me—I cannot pinpoint a pivotal time in my memory when my whole worldview shifted to what I am today. Perhaps it came from the oak tree that I grew up with as one of my best friends until it unfortunately passed Read More...

After a summer with a lot of fire, we have now moved into a period of a lot of Earth and for many of us it may come with a wonderful feeling of finally touching ground. Juno (relationships), the Sun (self), Mars (will and drive) and Venus (love, relationships) are all joined together in the sign of Virgo. This Virgo energy is supported by a trine to Uranus in the sign of Taurus. This creates a lot Read More...

Force, Form, and Function

by Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle Magick, philosophy, religion, spirituality, and science all intersect on some level today, just as they did in times past. Our desire to unite them again stems from a desire to perceive—and operate from—the living, unified interconnection and independence that our modern society does not emphasize. We realize something is missing from our worldview, and even our cutting-edge occultists are looking to bring things together on a magickal level (at least Read More...

Temple Astrolog: Fire in the Sky

There is a lot of Leo energy from the stars right now. Mercury (communication) Venus (relationships, magick, value), the Sun (self), Juno (partnership), and Mars (will). It's like the whole sky is roaring like a Lion. But what is it saying? And how do you live with a Lion? Leo is the second of the fire signs. Here the instinctual and direct energy of fire is maturing, but it is not there yet, reaching full maturity in Read More...
