History of the Besom

One of the most iconic images of witches and magic is the infamous Besom (broom). Many cultures around the world associate the broom with goddesses and magic ritual. Here in the west we are most familiar with the image of a witch flying through the night sky on her broomstick.

The besom or broom was a popular tool for witches in the past because it was an everyday item that couldn’t be used as definitive proof of being a witch. For witches though, it had many purposes other than as a simple domestic tool.

Wise Women of History: Dion Fortune

Dion Fortune b. December 6th 1890, d. January 8th 1946

Born in Wales, Dion Fortune (born Violet Mary Firth) was an influential occult writer and member of various magical and esoteric groups, including the Theosophical Society and the Golden Dawn. Fortune studied psychology and psychoanalysis at the University of London, and made a living as a psychiatrist. However, she is best remembered for her writings on Hermetic Qabalah and psychic protection, and for founding the Society of the Inner Light. Fortune claimed to be clairvoyant and clairaudient, and she came to be respected for her psychism. She was well-known within occult circles of her day, and it’s said that Aleister Crowley attempted to draw her into his order, but was unsuccessful.
