Rachel Patterson

Rachel Patterson

 
Rachel is a witch...has been for a very long time, not the green skinned warty kind obviously...the real sort - but she is also a working wife and mother living in Hampshire, England who has also been lucky enough to write and have published a growing stack of books on the Craft. She loves to learn she loves to study and continues to do so each and every day but has learned the most from actually getting outside and doing it. She regularly gives talks and workshops at pagan events. Rachel is also founder and an Elder at the Kitchen Witch online school of witchcraft. She likes to laugh...and eat cake...

Magical energy & the time of day

Energy of the day

There are some time points during the day that lend themselves to magic, you don’t have to work in tune with them but I encourage you to give it a try and see what you get from it.
