Down The Rabbit Hole: Magick, Mischief, & Milkhares

Share this:

The spring season is upon us; a season of rebirth, emergence, and a shitload of chocolate. This season and its signifiers, namely bunnies and eggs, are here to remind us of fertility and growth, because Paganism. Of course, a season associated with fertility also means an association with the feminine, which always leads to witchcraft, doesn’t it? Whether it’s old tales about women turning into rabbits to sneak around and dance with the devil, or women conjuring household objects into rabbit shapes that then go out and do their bidding, there’s just gotta be witches involved in every season. So to celebrate this season, we’re offering a bevy of otherworldly hares and bunnies. Perhaps you will find a familiar spirit among them!
