After seeing the advertisement for this magazine I thought I'd buy a copy just to see what it was like. I wasn't sure what to expect as the executive editor is Mystic Meg. It's not that I dislike her but her television image is a long way from genuine clairvoyant work. I must say I have been quite impressed by the magazine. It has obviously been well thought out and researched and there is certainly a target audience being catered for. Glossy and reminding me of something like Cosmo, advertising is concerned more with fashion and toys for the kids than tacky 0800 numbers. I would expect it to appeal to women 18 - 35 - perhaps working or married with children. That doesn't mean to say that no one else (or the guys) will be interested! It feels as though the magazine is promoting spirituality as a lifestyle. This is for people who have a mystical side they would like to express and perhaps gently explore rather than dedicate themselves too. Nothing wrong in that either. Emphasis is on "discovering more about yourself". There are articles geared towards relationships and love particularly. Meg certainly hasn't missed the point that 99.9% of a tarot readers clients will ask about love! (I know from experience). There is a nice article on Feng Shui - a kind of spiritual "Changing Rooms" and articles covering the tarot, dowsing and self-improvement via various methods. There is also a mediums column and letters page as well as the usual horoscope. All in all I thought this was quite a nicely laid out magazine. I'm not really in girlie cosmo type stuff myself but I like the way they have found a niche in the market. It feels friendly and approachable and would be a good taster for some who may go on to study certain disciplines in more depth. My copy has Autumn 200 on it so I am presuming it's published 4 times a year. Well done Meg and staff!
If you are interested in horoscopes, feng shui and the general unknown, then you might enjoy this magazine. Classed as 'Mystic Meg's' magazine (don't let this put you off though!) it contains features on feng shui, tarot and horoscope predictions to mention but a few. This is a quarterly magazine published in December, March, June and September and costs £2.50 and i have found this to be an interesting read. The autumn 2000 edition also has a free gift of a 'mystical pendulum' with it. Definitely worth a look if you are into this kind of thing.
