Pagan Eye: Pumpkins in Borough Market

I couldn't resist sharing this photo of huge pumpkins on sale in Borough Market. I've been working at an office near London Bridge recently and spotted these during a lunchtime stroll.

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not.

Pictures from October Plenty at London's Bankside

These lovely photos were taken at October Plenty last Sunday by Cecilia Orning from Sweden.

October Plenty is an autumn harvest celebration combining ancient seasonal customs and contemporary festivities that takes place around Shakespeare's Globe, Bankside and Borough Market in Southwark, south east London, every year. It is performed by The Lion's Part, which enacts seasonal plays from England's traditional ritual year.

Cecilia sent me the pictures and said: "I live in Sweden, but was in London for a visit up until yesterday. A friend of mine, still in Sweden, found your blog, so I was able to go to Cross Bones Cemetery and also join in the October Plenty festivities in Borough."

She added: "I would not have been able to find these things without your blog. Next time I plan a visit to London, I’ll make sure to check out your blog before leaving. Thank you so much and hope you will have a very wonderful Samhain and that the Goddess bless you in all!"

Thanks very much Cecilia for the lovely photos and for the kind words about A Bad Witch's Blog. Glad my events listing was useful. I hope you have a superb Samhain. Goddess bless you too!

The photograph is copyright Cecilia Orning. The picture at the top is of the play inside the Globe, the one to the right is of a corn queen.

Witchy Fiction: The Witches’ Brew Bundle

As I mentioned yesterday, I don't often mention fiction on my blog, but sometimes I get sent details I feel are worth passing on. I was recently sent a press release about a collection of ebooks with spellbinding themes. It is called The Witches' Brew Bundle and contains several different stories. I was emailed about it by Jamie Ferguson.

She said: "I've organized a collection of short stories about witches by 20 different authors."

Here are the details :
The Witches’ Brew bundle is a collection of stories about witches and magic by twenty different authors.

In Of Cats and Lost Socks, a witch’s cat will do anything to save his mistress from a curse, even if it means he must use his nine lives to help.

Witching is about a young, untrained witch who tries to save her people from a dark wizard, but she hasn’t thought through the price she’ll have to pay to do so.

A witch battling an evil wizard must face her own greatest fear in Witch – she’s afraid that she’ll become like the man she’s trying to defeat.

In The Lesson of the Love Spell, a young girl asks the witch who lives next door to cast a love spell to make her parents love each other again, but the spell doesn’t do what she expected.

Magic sparks and cauldrons bubble; potions bring love, and curses bring trouble. Enter twenty different worlds of magic and enchantment.
You can find out more details and order the downloads here:

Jamie added: "As part of promoting the collection for Halloween, I'm also posting witch-related links on our Facebook page."

Question: What Diary Will You Pick for 2017

If you buy a special witchcraft or pagan diary - do you have a favourite?

I always find it is a bit difficult to choose, because there are so many great diaries to choose from and I like to ring the changes. For 2017, I decided to go for the Llewellyn Witches Datebook, but this year I am currently using the Astro Moon Diary, last year I went for the Earth Pathways Diary and in 2014 I used the Angel Diary.

The picture at the top shows a selection of the diaries, calendars and year books at The Atlantis Bookshop in Museum Street, Central London, where I bought my Llewellyn Witches Datebook 2017 on Saturday. I prefer to browse the diaries and have a look inside before choosing, rather than just ordering over the internet.

But, my question to you is - what diary will you pick for 2017?

Baba Yaga, Slavic Folklore & the Highgate Vampire

I don't often mention fiction on my blog, but I was recently sent details about a novel that looks like it might be a jolly good read. The book is called Granny Yaga by Vitali Vitaliev. It's based on Baba Yaga the famous Slavic folklore character, but set in present-day London.

Apparently it includes references to Highgate Cemetery and the Highgate Vampire, the Crouch End Spriggan, an occult bookshop in London called Runes (which might have just a slight resemblance to one of London's real occult bookshops) and the ponds on Hampstead Heath, which many swimmers have reported as being haunted. The book also introduces readers to a number of other interesting characters from Slavic folklore, which the press release I was sent gave details of. Here they are:
  • Baba Yaga – Renowned in Slavic and particularly Russian fairy tales, this hook-nosed old witch lives in a forest, in a hut that stands on chicken legs. She flies around in a mortar, propelling herself with a pestle and only uses a broom to cover her tracks. It was rumoured that this sorceress ate children, so parents still often use her to deter naughty behaviour from their little ones. Vitaliev’s reincarnation, who resides in North London, is far friendlier, modern, witty and selfless: an unlikely super-heroine
  • Dziwożona (or mamuna) - a female swamp demon that is neither quite alive nor quite dead but something in between. They’re known for being generally wicked and kidnapping children. The book’s Dziwozona is Pani Czerniowiecka; a peculiar creature originating from the swamps of Eastern Poland whose existence alternates between her house and a spacious sarcophagus in the nearby Highgate Cemetery
  • Koschei (or Koschei the Deathless aka Koshchey the Immortal) - Koschei is the archetypal male antagonist in Slavic folklore and is known for kidnapping females. He is an old sorcerer and magician who metamorphoses into many different objects, people and creatures. As his name suggests, he is destined to live forever. However, this immortality is not actually foolproof. He can be killed if his soul is found (incidentally his soul is hidden in a needle, inside an egg). Vitaliev describes him as tall and, although in excellent health, extremely, almost inhumanly, thin. The name Koshchei means skeleton in old Krivichi dialect.
  • Volkodlak - A vampire, linked to various Slovenian werewolf legends. The word literally means "wolf-skin" and many sources say it is actually a vampire that can transform into a wolf. The British Museum curator character in Granny Yaga doesn’t believe a volkodlak is particularly gruesome. He explains that they are Magi sorcerers who can cause sun eclipses. It is an old volkodlak who teaches Granny Yaga to slow down time
  • Kikimora – A demon of the night that is seen throughout Slavic mythology. There are many interpretations of this female house spirit, but a kikimora is usually very ugly in depictions and considered evil.
Here are more details about the book:
On a drab winter’s evening, an old flying old woman is spotted in Bloomsbury, an area of London known for its magical, masonic and shamanism associations. This is followed by the arrival of Yadwiga, alias Baba Yaga, one of the most interesting characters of East European folklore – an ambiguous witch, a sorceress and an unlikely super-heroine. She has come to London as part of the struggling Sablins family, recent migrants from a fictitious East European country. It is in London that their adventures really begin.

Yadwiga joined the Sablins when life in the forest, where she had been dwelling inside a hut on hen’s legs for over a thousand years, became impossible due to “deforestation” and the invasion of overly-curious visitors. Baba Yaga can’t take being asked questions, for each question makes her a little bit older – a curse imposed on her by her former partner and now sworn enemy, Koschei the Deathless, the incarnation of all evil.

The story takes the reader on a fascinating excursion through the history of Slavic and British folklore projected on the vicissitudes of modern Western life.
Granny Yaga can be ordered via Amazon.  The picture bottom left is from Granny Yaga by Vitali Vitaliev.

Shopping: Candles and Candle Magic in Tasmania

My book Pagan Portals - Candle Magic has reached Australia! Here is a photo of a copy of it on the shelves of Seppenfelts, 13 - 15 Emu Bay Road, Deloraine, Tasmania, 7304, Australia.

Seppenfelts is run by Isabel and Alfred, who I met at the Druid Camp this summer. Their shop sounds lovely and I hope I will one day be able to visit it.

Isabel put my book next to candles made by a creative chandler Megan, who makes "beeloved candles" with pure, organic, locally sourced beeswax.
