About Of Lights and Shadows

This venture of mine is an attempt to blog about my magickal life and the various things that entails: rituals, spells, esbat circles, sabbat celebrations and the like.  My name is Ailuros, and I hope you’ll join me on this journey of magick, shadow work, evolution and growth


About Ailuros

I started my magickal journey back in 2003, when I was 14 years old, shortly before my 15th birthday, and spent the majority of my early training teaching myself through books.  During my first time in college (2006-2009), I spent some time studying with the local Black Forest coven and a woman who taught meditation classes and is now my mentor in various magickal arts.  As of this post (November, 2015), I am a level two student in the Temple of Witchcraft.  I have my own small business, Ailuros Design, which caters to the magickal community; everything you see in my Etsy shop is made by yours truly!  Aside from my day job, my small business and studying with the Temple, I am currently enrolled part-time at the New York Institute of Massage for massage therapy.  I am also a tribal fusion bellydancer, performing solo under the guise of Ailuros Belly Dance and with my soul-sister, Sway, as Black Magick Women.

Brightest and Darkest Blessings,
