When we think of the wheel of the year, the Wiccan wheel with its celebrations of the Yule, Beltane, Mabon, and Samhain come to mind. But what about a wheel of the year for the rest of us pagans and witches? As a witch living in sunny South Florida, longtime hereditary witch Temperance Alden has often felt at odds gearing up to celebrate Yule, for example, when it is 76 degrees and sunny outside.

"In her much-needed and brilliant Year of the Witch, Temperance Alden guides readers to observe their own land, celestial cycles, seasonal cycles, and even their own biological cycles to inform their magickal year."-- Mat Auryn, author of Psychic Witch: A Metaphysical Guide to Meditation, Magick, and Manifestation

Year of the Witch will help readers create their own intuitive practices in harmony with the climate, culture, and local spirits where they live. It’s of interest to witches coming off the Wiccan path and looking for a more personal approach to celebrating the rhythms of nature. Year of the Witch covers all aspects of this new, seasonal practice: 

  • The origins of the neo-pagan wheel of the year and why it is still so relevant today 
  • Culture, historical facts, and traditions associated with the major ceremonies 
  • Basic principles of land-based magick 
  • How to intuitively connect to the nature below your feet and the local gods 
  • Being a custodian to the land and its impact on our spiritual practice

The year of the witch is the year of you. My biggest goal in writing this book was to inspire a spark of change in witches both new and old to their path. By learning the origins, traditions, and alternatives to the wheel, it becomes easier to craft the reality we want on our own journey.

For the witch, every day of the year can become a sacred one. The year of the witch starts with you, and it starts right now. In the words of psychol­ogist Charles Richards, "Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week’s value out of a year while another man gets a full year’s value out of a week." -Temperance Alden
