Metaphysics

Like any admirer or practitioner of Witchcraft, my interest in Neo-Paganism rapidly spread outward to the Esoteric and Metaphysics broadly. What is Metaphysics? It’s defined as, “The branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of things, including abstract concepts such as being, knowing, substance, cause, identity, time, and space.” Pretty broad, right? Don’t worry, there’s tons of subjects and articles here to help you get familiar with all things Metaphysical.

The Salem Witch Trials

The Salem Witch Trials undoubtedly did more to define Salem, Massachusetts than anything else in the town’s history. While comparatively short (we’re really only talking about a year), the Trials and their horrors left an indelible mark on the entire North Shore region. Without the Trials, there is no Witch City. Start below to learn all about the Salem Witch Trials, from broad timelines to deep dives on all the key players and everything in-between.

Witchcraft

In the 1970’s a Witch named Laurie Cabot moved to Salem, Massachusetts. This is notable for a variety of reasons, one of which is that Cabot opened the first Witch Shop in Salem. This, along with a few other key events, helped change Salem’s perception of its own history. It also established a home for contemporary Wiccans, Witches, and other Neopagans in Salem. Since Salem and Witchcraft are so linked, it should be no surprise that I am absolutely fascinated with all things Witchy. Explore all the dark things your little Pagan heart desires below.
