Venefica Magazine : Volume 2

Venefica Magazine is a community-supported publication released on the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes. It is Catland's premiere publication, and features commentary, art, poetry, and spell craft from a selection of our favorite occulture writers & artists.

Venefica seeks to continue the legacy of the witch by conjuring her rebel archetype- the poisoner, the protestor, the one who generates chaos in a quest for freedom and wilderness. Through education, artwork, and storytelling, we seek to provide practical tools for those looking to tap into these powerful energies, and to feed the wild, rebellious witch in you.

In this second issue of Venefica, we explore the liminal space that is the Autumn Equinox. Through the themes of transformation, wilderness, communication with spirits, shapeshifting, magical protest, rebellion, and fire, we endeavor to walk between worlds, and invoke the many names and faces of the witch to guide our way.
