The Witches’ Almanac is a sophisticated publication appealing to general readers as well as hard-core Wiccans. At one level, it is a pop reference that will fascinate anyone interested in folklore, mythology and culture, but at another, it is the most sophisticated annual guide available today for the mystic enthusiast.
Modeled after the Old Farmers’ Almanac, it includes information related to the annual Moon Calendar (weather forecasts and horoscopes), as well as legends, rituals, herbal secrets, mystic incantations, interviews, and many a curious tale of good and evil. Although it is an annual publication, much of the content is both current and timeless—not specific to the date range of each issue.
The theme of Issue 42 (Spring 2023–Spring 2024) is Earth—Origins of Chthonic Powers. Also included are articles on: Geomancy, The Lunar Nodes, Celestial Magic, and the Fifteen Behenian Stars, The Herbs of the Planets, The Orisha Ogun, and much more.
