Witchcraft into the Wilds – Rachel Patterson
I have read many of Rachel’s previous books, and enjoyed every one of them. She has such a natural and chatty style of writing that you feel you are being invited in and discussing the subjects over a cup of tea and a slice of cake. It just flows……
What does it mean to attempt walking an ancient path within modern British culture?

The horned or antlered deity is perhaps the most beloved and iconic within modern Paganism, and the various forms of this ancient deity, which extend back far beyond the rising of agriculture or the taming of the horse, remain a constant inspiration.
The hedgerows are full to bursting with berries at this time of year. Blackberries you can eat straight from the bush (but not if you are near a main road, probably best to avoid those ones), elderberries can be made into syrups, cordials and of course…wine. And hawthorn berries are excellent to work magic with.
For me, it is about connecting to the land around you. I don’t live in a tumble-down cottage in the middle of the woods (seriously none of the takeaways deliver…), I do in fact live on the edge of a city. But the land around me and beneath my feet is ancient. It has a house on now (obviously) and had dwellings on it before, going back for a very long time. And the land holds those memories. There is not only the element of earth beneath our feet but also the history of our ancestors.
In the first of our series of articles to focus on deities within Paganism, I examine the thunderer. It is my intention to set a mood in which we can journey through time as we meet, engage with and learn about this powerful divine being which sits at the head of many ancient pantheons.
