Sabat Magazine: The Mother Issue

The sophomore issue of Sabat Magazine is now available, dedicated to the growth of the Maiden into the Mother.

What is mother? This second issue of Sabat tries to cast light on what is, to me, one of the most mysterious of female archetypes. Persistent in her duality, mother is vastness, Nature, a love unyielding and beyond, sacrifice and almighty power, creation and destruction embodied. She performs the ultimate act of human magic, creating new life. Yet in this she reminds us of the cycle of life. Ripe with vitality, she is also the one who whispers of death. A memento mori at the peak of the harvest, calling us to take our place in the circle, or to come home, well knowing what that entails.

Sabat: The Mother issue features contributions from Pam Grossman, Ellen Rogers, Linda Nagler, and many more. Articles cover topics such as individual altars, Victorian ghost mother photography, and an outstanding interview with the Hood Witch, Bri Luna. The graphic design of the magazine is superb, with translucent inserts and stylistic page layouts, creating a truly beautiful tome.

Sabat’s Mother Issue is a worthwhile addition to any library. Available to purchase online or in select brick and mortar shops around the world.

  1. Exactly what I was thinkink. The maiden (virgin) can be symbolic too, but it’s so much inspired by backward thinking, I’d rather be the crone eventhough I’m 30…

  2. I love that there are more witchcraft/magickal magazines being published, but I never liked the maiden/mother/crone distinction in Wicca. I really love the Lasara Allen book Jailbreaking the Goddess which proposes a five fold model of women’s development that has nothing to do with biological function. I know that “mother” can be symbolic, but for women who choose to say child free, I feel like it’s such a loaded term. Just one witch’s opinion.
