When I started altmagic I bemoaned how hard it was to find good magic blogs, and I scoured over 400 to find the best few to follow.
That was months ago, and since then I’ve found a handful more. Some were linked by other magicians, some recommended by readers and some I came across through a little bit of everyday conjuration.
Here’s the best in the second wave of magic-related blogs I’ve found. Take ‘em in and savor.
+The Valentines // Black magic, rock and roll, sex. Simply the most entertaining and thought-provoking magic blog I’ve seen. Don’t miss the Sutras on the right-hand side.
+The Sassy Sibyl // Melissa is one badass oracle. Magic and divination are two different subject, but she has to be included here. Frankly, there’s no other fortuneteller I’ll trust to read my future. And her blog posts are tops, like the linked one about Hello Kitty tarot.
+Magic SEA // Or, Magic South-East Asia. What a refreshing change from all-Western magic blogs. The post linked here dives right into it, giving numerous Asian rituals to call back a runaway wife (!). I’ll admit I’ve never had a client ask for that one – though I’ve helped some wives run away. I’m totally engrossed in this blog.
+The Eyeless Owl // A broader look at the study of unusual phenomena. I’m generally against lumping magic into a sort of all-freak-flags-fly parapsychology label, but I’ll admit I’m taken by some of the articles here. The linked one focuses on the ethnography of magic and how skeptical anthropologists explain their experiences in the field.
+Heavens Within Earth // Essay-style posts with an insight borne of practice. AIT is another of the growing number of practitioners who blend Hoodoo and Western Ceremonial and leave the horizons at home; you could call this movement Western Magic II (because 2.0 is getting tired). Also, the only place I’ve seen the phrase: “commence with the ‘not giving a fuck’.”
+Frater Barrabbas // A Western ceremonial magician with highly practical tastes. The Frater tends to write incredibly honest, clear pieces on specific areas of his magical practice. A treasure trove.
+Scarlet Imprint // This is a commercial blog for Scarlet Imprint publishing house. But, like, magicians need eye candy too, right? Their limited run grimoires are stunning works of art. It’s worth a look.
+Eye of the Sorcerer // Moloch’s streaming, sometimes aggressive style makes me grin. This is all in, a mage who revels in maging. Linked is one of the better posts on spirits that I’ve read.
+Asterion’s Occult Art // A fellow artist who makes magical designs. We’re very different in style, as you’ll see.
+American Warlock // Titles in red deco font, Google ads in your face, and a busy stock-photo background. (And no RSS feed?) Believe me, I wouldn’t subject you to it if this guy didn’t have some damn interesting things to say about the practice of ritual magic (and how it’s taught).
