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.

Temple Astrolog: A difficult passage

There is a big energy building up right now and I believe it is felt by everyone, even those who usually do not describe themselves as sensitive, or tuned into the stars. Right now we have many planets and placements in Capricorn: Saturn, Mercury, Pluto, the Sun, and the south node are all there together. Capricorn is the third of the earth signs and it is usually felt very physically and directly. Because the sign is ruled Read More...

Lilith Black Moon (what we cannot see) is right next to the asteroid Vesta (devotion) in the sign of Aquarius. This means it is really hard to figure out what is going on in the collective right now. Vesta is all about that inner fire and sparkle. Things that we hold close to us and find worthy of both devotion and protection. With this constellation we can get really fiery about how wrong others are, or we Read More...

2019 Numerology: Sunshine and Surprises

The year 2019 vibrates to the number 3 (2+0+1+9=12, 1+2=3) the Empress card in Tarot (the Mother) and the color yellow. Number 3 is fun, fast-moving and has a light vibration most of the time. It is the “easy go” number and it loves the feeling of when things are flowing in harmony. People with number 3 as a life lesson number are easy to talk to and they know a lot of people. You often find Read More...

Temple Astrolog: Kiss and make up…or not?

The stars are certainly up for a good party! Despite Sun and Saturn joined in Capricorn (a little boring) Mars and Chrion in Pisces are in a grand trine with Venus and Ceres in Scorpio and the north node in Cancer stirring up some romantic energy. This creates a good feeling and a tendency to be forgiving and seeing the best in people. With that Venus in Scorpio flirting with Mars in Pisces, ou lala! That old Read More...

Temple Astrolog: Opening the vaults of heaven

If you are searching for answers right now, you can turn your energy towards the upper worlds and work with Jupiter and Mercury, joined together in the sign of Sagittarius. This has the power to open the vaults of heaven. This is a wonderful aspect for anyone involved in writing, research, and teaching. Bright ideas may come from this, so don't forget to write them down as you may not remember them later. This also brings a Read More...

Temple Astrolog: The eyes of the oracle

The asteroid Ceres (the great mother) is together with Venus in the sign of Scorpio. This is excellent for anyone interested in scrying, oracle-reading, and divining the future. You might need to be a bit careful though, as Scorpio is the ruler of the underworld and you can get in deeper than you planned. This is amplified by a trigon to Neptune in Pisces opening up to new worlds and dimensions with ease, but not so clear Read More...

Temple Astrolog: Get that thing moving

Mars, the planet of movement and energy, has been in the sign of Pisces since mid-November, and he is not happy there. He is also joined by Neptune and that brings even more water to his fire. This makes it hard to feel energized and enthusiastic. It is easy to blame others for delays and stagnation and that is something that should be avoided. But now there is help coming in as the sun makes a square Read More...

Temple Astrolog: Moving in a new direction

The nodes of the moon have moved into new signs (November 16th) and are creating a wave of change and transformation in our lives. For some people it can feel like a great relief that finally things are moving, and for others it can create a lot of tension. The north node, also called the dragon's head, shows us a place of focus for moving ahead and fulfilling our destiny. The north node has moved into the Read More...
