Remember There Are Female Magicians Too

When we think about magicians in general we tend to automatically think of men. Magic has been a boys club for a very long time indeed.

But the truth is that there is a great deal of ancient history supporting the woman as magician/shaman/priestess and so on. This should not come as any particular surprise to anyone who has spent even a little bit of time with ancient history. It’s very much a “well, of course” kind of moment.

So why then are there not so many female magicians out there now? Well, I won’t argue that the field is male dominated, but there are in fact a great many more female magicians out there than most people think. Even a cursory search turns up quite a few.

But even I, a magician with a female apprentice, have to be reminded from time to time that there are plenty out there and they should be appreciated because they bring a very different kind of energy and style to the art of magic.

As an example I offer up this video of a very talented performer named Alana. I was pointed to her by Jeff McBride, and as he so rightly points out, you can see why she is winning so many competitions.
