WiccanChat: How to make Wicca fun again

Rekindling the Magick + Wonder of Wicca: Your #WiccanChat Recap

This week on #WiccanChat, we delved into how to make Wicca feel as magickal as when we first started practicing! Our Sisters and Brothers of The Craft answered questions about how differently they practice now and what they could incorporate to make it less habitual on Twitter as part of Plentiful Earth’s Wiccan Chat! This was our third Twitter chat, and we look forward to seeing our Pagan Twitter community grow!

Read our magickal recap below, and feel like you were part of the magick! Follow us on Twitter, and be sure to join us on Twitter every Wednesday at 11am Central time! We cover a new Wiccan topic every week!
