The Year to Come


As each new year dawns it’s not uncommon for people to make high-hoped personal resolutions and promises to themselves in an effort to kick-start things. We all want improvement and we all want to see our lives enrich. Some of us are in less-than-ideal circumstances and we want to make a change. Here at Practical Occult, we advocate fully the yearning to remake and reshape one’s life.

How can a person be sure this year to come, 2023, will really be their year? Magic. The intelligent application of magic by our favorite discerning individuals is the key to success and always has been. It has always been the mission of Practical Occult to put life-changing sorcery quite literally in the hands of our customers and we’ve been fortunate to see how many positive reviews, heartfelt joyous emails and personal recommendations we’ve had from our products and services.

Towards this end, we entreat anyone who wants to make a lasting change in their lives to browse the website and keep their eyes peeled for new offerings over the course of 2023.

Pentacles aplenty, amulets from ancient magical traditions and more are for sale here. If you’ve had success with us before, now may be the time to upgrade to a Solar pentacle to make you shine, a Venusian amulet to wow and seduce your whole world or a Jupiteran item to bring abundance and glory to you. Have you got enemies or competition? Mars has you covered. No aspect of a growing life is overlooked by our supply.

Upcoming one-off classes on Necromancy, Protection, Mojo Hands, Spirit Diplomacy and more will be on offer as the months roll on. Snatching up one or more of these will be an excellent way to round out your existing knowledge of the esoteric and bolster it with new methods that you may not have known before. Being an occultist is to be a forever student and we are dedicated to continuing to grow our digital library of content towards this very end.

For those magicians who are already comfortably at the intermediate stage and desire something deeper, our Sorcerous Method coaching much be just what you need to step into and through 2023 with the guidance, encouragement and teachings to help you gain new heights with your magic and to enchant the life you dare only to dream about. A bold step like this is what often separates those who break through from those who remain stagnant.

We are also happy to offer Year-Ahead readings to those who want to have a look at what to expect in 2023. Having this information ready allows plenty of time to strategize, enchant and conjure your way into victory. Forewarned is, of course, forearmed. Each month will be explained with a three-card pull and for those who want a deeper exploration of a given month, additional readings can be purchased to fully flesh-out the situation.

Approaching a new year with hope, optimism and a fire in the soul for great experiences, victories and dreams made manifest is the best way to step into 2023. We at Practical Occult believe in your ability to do just that and would be happy to help see to these shining futures in any way we can.

Towards this end, we’ll leave you with a simple spell most anyone can do to help kick-start this process. There’s a lasting and varied folk tradition involving burning a Bayberry candle on New Year’s Eve into New Year’s Day. While it doesn’t need to be a Bayberry candle, taking a taper and carving into it what you want for the year to come and burning it during this time, dedicating this action to the manifestation of goals in the next twelve months, is an excellent way to start the year on the right foot.

Conjure oils, powders, herbs and more can be added to this candle. Pentacles can be placed around it to help empower these asks for the year to come. Petitions with seals and sigils can be placed under the candle and so much more. This spell, as simple or as complex as one wants to make it, is all towards the end of beginning the year with dedicated action asking any spirits who are good to you and wish one well to empower this working and, thus, one’s life itself.

The Caveat of course exists to exercise proper fire safety and not burn the house down. That would be a terrible way to start 2023.
