I’m A Witch – Affirmations

Nope.  Not a title meant to grab the reader’s attention and make them go “ooo”.  I’ve been a practicing witch for many years now – almost ten.  Wow.  It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long.  But that’s not what this post is about. The fact of the matter is that the witchy side of…


Introducing – Witchy/Women’s Wednesdays!

One Woman’s Promotion and Simplicity in Ritual Today marks the first day of my new blog plan!  A la Shea MacLeod (who is a la Kristin Rusch), I’m implementing “theme blogs” to help me post a specific number of times a week.  As you can tell from the above title and image, welcome to Witchy…


Music in ritual

I’m always looking for ways in which to be creative in ritual. After you read numerous “how-to” books on witchcraft and Wicca, a lot of it starts to look same-old, same-old. Of course, nothing is wrong with sometimes following tried and true spells: planting a seed to grow an intention, lighting a candle that is…


Quarter Callings – part poetry, part ritual

With too much else to do, women’s blog challenge is on hold, unfortunately. I’m just going to have to plan on blogging some of the stuff I’d wanted later on. I wrote these quarter callings a couple weeks back for ritual; anybody directed here can feel free to use them just don’t try to pass…


Starhawk

Keeping with the theme of my spirituality and strong women, I have to write about Starhawk. Now, if I were to pick a favorite occult writer I would have to pick Scott Cunningham, because he gave me Wicca. But, to pick a writer who embodies the woman I want to be in her writing, it…


Women and Witch Burnings

As a woman and witch, I guess it just makes sense for me to begin this month of blogging with the witch burnings.  Yes, exhaustive research has been conducted to prove that women were not the only victims during the burning times – men and children were tried and convicted, as well.  But, let’s face…


Two Year Anniversary Blessing

I have nurtured this blog for two years this month.  It is my conduit for ranting, for sharing, and for procrastinating when I should be working on my fiction.  In the two years I’ve run this place, I’ve not yet blessed it.  Technology may be a strange place for magick, but as it is an…


Observations of morning

The sun shines down on the road before me.  Steam rises from the damp asphalt, and I imagine I can hear it hissing in release.  THe bright orb in the pale blue sky above moves in and out of view as I navigate the curves of the road home.  A morning fog is lifting, painting…


Thoughts on Faith

“God is a lesbian, but also a gay, a black, a white, a chrysanthemum. It is because you don’t understand that, that you discriminate. ” Thich Nhat Hahn Ah, the enigma.  If only there was a way to harness scientific energy or even MAGIC, and forceably thrust this saying into the minds of everyone around…


The Ache of Being A Witch

I have grown weary of mass misunderstanding. I’m sick to my bones of hiding what I believe, concealing the love and light in my heart due to societal ignorance. Having chosen a faith outside the comfy norm of the Christian monarchy, I’m outcast from those I love and have very little contact with others of…
