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.

written by Karin Ugander We are in a time of turbulence and strong energies are moving through us, both on a personal and a collective plane. It may feel like the earth is shaking and yet at the same time a feeling of standing still, not moving fast enough. So how could this be? And is there anything that one can do to find some kind of balance and perhaps peace? Well, I believe there is. Let´s Read More...

By Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle  Not that long ago, I was not an advocate of online magick. Classes? Sure. But the actual doing of magick? No. Despite being a full-time Witch immersed in writing, philosophy, and theology, I have a Bachelor of Music Performance with a minor in Music Business. My early adulthood was filled not only with Witches and occultists, but also musicians, artists, and poets whose work ranged from classical and jazz to Read More...

written by Karin Ugander We did it! We have just passed through a massive amount of energy with the solar eclipse in the middle of December, and the big conjunction with Jupiter and Saturn at Midwinter. But, the ride is not over yet. We still have a strong and special full Moon on the 29th of December and a New Year to celebrate. So let´s take a look at what the stars has in store for us Read More...

Capricorn Volunteer Spotlight: Mary Paliechesky

In the midst of one of the most challenging years in memory, the Capricorn Ministry would like to spotlight the extraordinary work of volunteer Mary Paliechesky in southern California.  Mary is a stalwart and dedicated volunteer in the pen pal program, supporting a number of incarcerated pen pals in their spiritual journeys. In particular, her pen pal ministries in Texas prison facilities have led to an explosion of new Pagan inmates in Texas requesting spiritual support through Read More...

Dion Fortune and Distance Magick

By Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle  Not that long ago, I was not an advocate of online magick. Classes? Sure. But the actual doing of magick? No. I had a friend who early on was deeply immersed in online rituals with an internet coven, and perhaps my assessment had a lot to do with that particular person, but I didn’t see a lot of evolutionary result there. To be fair, I could say that about a Read More...

Temple Astrolog: A December to remember!

written by Karin Ugander This will most certainly be a December to remember. Not just only because of the pandemic and the fact that we will celebrate the holidays differently, but also because of the special astrological events taking place. A river of energy is about to sweep all over us. The December events will culminate at Midwinter on the 21st of December, when Jupiter and Saturn will conjunct and join each other like one big star Read More...

The Stages of Witchcraft

By Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle  Occultism usually marks development and evolution in a series of stages. Witches and Magicians have degrees of initiation with modern practitioners drawing much of their systems from Freemasons. We have the Descent of the Underworld, the Tree of Life, the Hero’s Journey, astrological cycles, and the stages of alchemy. They occur in both formal initiation rituals and the stuff of life, the one true initiation ever challenging us to go Read More...

Today it is not only a Full moon, but a lunar eclipse as well. It is said that a sun eclipse is a change for the leaders and a moon eclipse is a change for the people. This full moon is in the sign of Gemini, the first air sign and our master communicator. Just like people are more or less influenced by when the moon is full, they can feel the energy more or less from Read More...
