Hard Lessons of Mercury Rx

Still feeling the effects of Mercury Rx. Just last week everything at work seem to go bust. Printer's lagging, jammed up with too much information; was at a standstill for 5 hours. Computer shuts down by itself, all email account information bites the dust. Had to call IT to get it resolved. Shipments coming in ahead of schedule, all at one time. Mind you having 10 shipments to come in with urgent requests to off load in the next 24 hours, along with our regular workload is truly a feat to…

DIY Paganism

I haven't been very active on this page for some time. But i have been really active in putting my energy and thoughts in Paganism. 

I do not have much to spend, sometimes I can barely buy enough food. 

Sadly herbs and pagan tools can be quite expensive while most of it can be found around your living area, not to mention making your own tools.

So I've been scrolling through (Dutch pinterest) and Pinterest itself, finding all sorts of wonderful ideas and DIY…

Mercury retrograde and you!

Hey all,

So this isn't like a normal blog for me. I did some research after reading a few posts here on RP and on a few articles on other sites about mercury being in retrograde wreaking havoc with people's lives.

I have to say I don't think the retrograde is causing me any problems but maybe it is and I don't notice them? Anyway I wanted to make a survival guide for those of you that are feeling like you got kicked or are getting kicked in the head.

Here are a few steps that… Continue

Homemade wine, stocking up and updates!

Hey all,

I really haven't blogged in awhile. I have posted a few things but not like I used to. I haven't really had a good blog for awhile. As the one about Niji was pretty deep and personal. I plan to get back to my original blog postings.

I thought I would start with something that I mentioned in a blog posted awhile back, homemade wine.  I found a recipe on a cooking app for homemade wine and I also searched you tube for ways other people make it. I when this…

Charging Stones

Merry meet everyone.  I was just wondering how you personally choose to charge your stones?  A friend of mine tells me the only way to do it is to leave them out in the full moon light all night.  However, other friends I've talked to tell me of different ways you can do it including simply washing them and concentrating over them to instill in them what you need them for. 

Anywho!  Just wanted some new ideas, because I usually forget to set mine out during the full moon and remember…

Stop This Train! I Wanna Get Off!

I just found out that today officially marks the beginning of this year's 3rd Mercury Retrograde.

Now, granted I'm not always on top of, when the Mercury Retrograde is going to happen. 8 times out of 10, it usually catches me off guard. Then there are those times I've known about it beforehand and saw it coming. But this time. This time. It totally side swiped me; with a couple of good blows to the left and the right, completely knocking me on my backside. I was really beginning…

Things I do when I am sick, some may make you laugh.

Yesterday when I woke up I had a scratchy throat and a little bit of a cough, as the evening went on I got that stuffy nose, tightness in my chest and pressure in my ears. Not fun.

First thing I did was take 2 Echinacea capsules, 2 vitamin C capsules and a up of hot lemon water.(along with my folate and probiotic) I used my netti pot later on as symptoms got worse along with a saline nasal spray.

Once I do all that. I take a 2x5 muslin bag and fill it with a couple of wedges of…

Celebrating Samhain...

Samhain (pronounced Sow-wen), also called Hallowmas, is the final festival in the Witches' year. It is celebrated on October 31st. The word Samhain means 'Summer's End'. It is the first day of Winter and the Witch's New Year. In earlier agricultural societies, Samhain was also the end of the Harvest, the time to put aside the seed corn for the coming Spring.

It was a time for feasting, too, as the weaker animals were culled and killed. Only the livestock most likely to make it through…

On A New Stretch Of Pathway.

As of late I have been struggling personally with myself on all levels. So just as the summer had set in, I have decided to start making major changes in my life, down to outward appearance. Then at the Lammas ritual, I "broke down" and asked a few Pagan Pen Pal friends of mine if they would become my mentors for this process. All of them agreed which made me feel a lot better about my soon to be major adjustment.

I have started a new Book Of Shadows which will be done in 4…

I really need to get back to meditating

Before I began doing rituals with a group, ALL of my "spell casting" and everything else was done through meditation and visualization, sans physical tools.

Eyes closed, head bowed or body rocking in a repetitive motion, dim lighting, no distractions.

All I really had tools-wise was my mini- altar covered in various rainbow-colored candles and a yellow lighter that never wanted to work quite right. Irony.

Even in my adult life I find difficult the concept of a… Continue

You know...

I find it funny how things come 'round.

It's like when you find the journal you haven't seen in ages and you pick it up only to laugh at the silliness you once thought was so serious...

I have recently discovered that my tolerance for BS has gotten much thinner.

I do, however, find it in a divine "re-aligning of the stars" bit of irony that I would stumble upon a clearing in the woods that lead me back to "the path;" Although, I feel as if this time it is going to be… Continue

11 Years and a Day

It was 11 Years ago this Month that I started practicing Wicca and oh what a ride it has been. Even though I Things e.g. Taoism to my Ritual and Practice, I still bring it all back down to Wicca: my Home. In fact, for most of these 11 Years, I have used the Rituals found in "Nocturnal Witchcraft" and "Gothic Grimoire" both by Konstantinos for my Rituals for New and Full Moons and Seasonal Festivals. I met my best Friend, Patron, while practicing a Wiccan Ritual 11 Years ago this Month. Patron… Continue

Words to the Wise

"Our base is the Divine Life of the universe. Our means of keeping in touch with it cannot be through any man-made dogma, but through nature, which man did not make. Men’s hands wrote all the holy books and sacred scriptures; only the book of nature was written by divinity."
—Doreen Valiente, Witchcraft for Tomorrow

Words to the Wise

"'Decide what is sacred to you, and put your best life energies at its service. Make that the focus of your studies, your work, the test for your pleasures and your relationships. Don't ever let fear or craving for security turn you aside.' When you serve your passion, when you are willing to risk yourself for something, your greatest creative energies are released. Hard work is required, but nothing is more joyful than work infused by love."
--Starhawk, The Spiral Dance

The kittens are here!

Hey all,

Around 8am Sunday morning the kittens came! Boots was a lot farther along than we thought. I worked the night before and my husband was home. She started clawing at the back door(she was a stray that started coming around, I talk about her and Bones in the blog titled Sunday) he let her in for awhile trying to keep her hidden from our two cats. Rukia is more aggressive towards other cats and Onyx is just extra cautious. They have only ever been around each other so we wanted…
