Howdy! You've landed on the hub page for Michelle Gruben, Pagan writer. In an effort to organize the chaos, I've set up links to the most popular written content at Grove and Grotto. We host dozens and dozens of articles on diverse magickal topics.
All of this Pagan and magickal writing is free and easily available. You don't need to download an e-book, sign up for a class, or give me your email address to access it.
If you enjoy my writing, the best way to keep it going is to shop at my store. The money I earn running the shop directly supports the blog. (Alternatively, if you hate my writing, the best way to stop it is to buy so much stuff that I'm too busy filling orders to write this dreck.)
These are some of the "greatest hits" from the Grove and Grotto blog:
Candle colors and their meanings
Tarot and Divination
Pendulum basics: How to use a pendulum for dowsing
The Fiery Wall of Protection (Quick and dirty version)
Tools and Toys
Starting a crystal collection on a budget
I have set up the store's blog not just to be fodder for the search engines, but to be engaging and helpful to readers as well. The above list includes two classes of articles: The ones that pull in the most search traffic, and the ones that I think represent my best work.
Looking for more? A big old list of articles appears here, sorted by publication date. The newest stuff appears at the top, and stretches backwards to about 2014. I hereby absolve myself of any responsibility for anything written six or more months ago. What can I say? I'm always learning.
Speaking of which, you are invited to comment on any article, whether you agree or disagree. I do look at the blog comments periodically. But due to the limitations of my blogging platform and my own intermittent bouts of shyness, I'm not able to reply directly. If you have a question, customer service issue, or urgent correction, it's best to email me directly.
I write occasionally for small Pagan publications. But I prefer to self-publish. The Grove and Grotto website is the best place to find my raw, uncensored Faery magick scribbling. (I have also written a book on Tarot and another on running a crafty business. You can download them for a few bucks on Amazon.)
I enjoy chatting with other Pagan writers. Drop me a note sometime for a guest blog swap!
Feel free to link to any page on the site or share them on social media. Please don't copy and paste the text or present my words as your own. That's illegal, annoying, and I will find out about it (eventually).
Go here to view everything in the archive. You can search articles using the store search function. You can also hop around by keyword—some suggested ones are pagan, beginner, materials, herbs, and of course, opinion.
Thank you for reading!
