So realistically it has been quite a while since i've even been on this site let alone, actually blogged. I think i should simply because I need to vent and can use it like a journal for when i'm real stressed. Kinda like now. LOL
Anyway, seems that since I started training and took my oath all of the people around me have slipped away. Some of that being because they are ecclectic, and or ended up being playgans, and the seriousness of my studies and faith, they drifted…Continue
During Research I ran across the thought-proviking article about my patron which I think is so spot-on regarding my feelings regarding gratefulness, the gods and our search for "true happiness". I have found it to be 100% true that when I give thanks for my blessings and recognise them as gifts in my life, I find myself feeling much more satisfied and happy- even without any increase in my life. Also... the goddess Hathor has many names and titles, one of which is "She who answers her…Continue
Moving is taking a long time to happen. We have hit many roadblocks, and, still being in my parent's home, I am unable to properly do an Imbolc/Oímelg ritual in honor of my patron goddess, Brighid. This initially made me saddened; deeply saddened, but then I thought of another way to honor Her.
I am going to venture out tomorrow and see if there have been any new buds of flower in symbolism of the first awakenings of Spring. There have been a lot blooming around here this year, which…Continue

Over the past five and a half years, I have always just had a basic outline to my practice to build around. I followed many of the Neo-Wiccan books and information I was given that was accurate, and my practice was formed around it, and probably changed every now and then. However, nothing had been stable. It was still a bit chaotic because I was still getting used to rituals, spellworking, and following the Sabbats and Esbats. I was content, however, in much of what I did and knew, and it…Continue
Hey everyone! Guess who's back with a brand new rap ;) Hahah just kidding!
Missed this place loads! Dunno why I don't come on here more often, it's so good to talk to people who "get it" Facebook is good and all, but it gets really really really boring to keep explaing and then reexplaining to my aunt/other family what I'm talking about and why!! The latest one to confuse her was planetary hours. -_- And do you have any idea how hard that is to explain?!
^ So yeah,…Continue
I'm taking a moment to fulfill my obligation to St. Expedite in giving him a "shout-out", in appreciation of his amazing ability to help those needing it as well as spreading his name.
A couple of months ago, I really needed transportation. After a fall-out from what I felt was my home and place in life, one of the things I lost was my ability to commute myself to my place of employment. It was absolutely mandatory that I acquired a vehicle or I couldn't progress. So, I…Continue
Family of mine is working on a project for needs assessment within the Pagan/Witch/Heathen/etc. communities and could use your help:
The survey will take about 15 minutes and is open to U.S. residents ages 18 and up.
Thank you so much as a personal favor…Continue

Feel free to use this…Continue

***The Milwaukee Domes are an amazing place as they have some great flora
and plant species from differing regions of the globe;
and each dome is set up with the atmosphere and temperatures
from those areas in order to support those various plant species and flora.
***The Milwaukee Art Museum almost always has great collection items in its exhibits.
The art museum also has a museum within this museum and it shows off…

Needing to understand the meaning of Crow entering into my life at this time I am trying to find out just what Crow is trying to say to me from as many sources as possible. Crow is a wonderful spirit and from what I am learning I have much I can learn from this wonderful teacher. Being of the earth element as a double…

In recent years, it seems like im waiting for winter and all of a sudden, the first buds appear on bushes and up pop the daffodils and the birds song seems to welcome the return of spring.
I feel a sence of relief, I guess, but nothing compared to times gone by when it really did signify easier times ahead. I think winter must have seemed to go on forever, so the early signs of spring must have been like a message from the earth to her children, that she is awakening once…Continue

One of the perils in the crooks of this path is stagnation; the lack of moving forward, of developing, of evolving. For the last year or so, I've been going through "slow" periods, times when my practice subsided and I felt an overall lack of motivation. Little did I know that this was the sign of an foreboding, major shut-down of my spirituality and practice.
I have reached such a level of stagnation that I have forsaken almost every single practice, method or…Continue
So, this year is starting off pretty good, but hopefully it will get even better. :) Began the year by eating some blackeyed peas for prosperity, so I am hoping that will help when I go looking for a job. However, I cannot do that until we move into our new house. Which is soon! Hoping to be moved this weekend, so if I do not come on as often as I used to it is because of that, and not having internet yet. However, I might be able to go to the library with my laptop and hope to jump on the…Continue

It was brought to my attention today, in chat, that Ganesh needs to have an 'a' placed on the end of it. I argued that it did not and I was then questioned about references. I, then, privately told the person, in no uncertain terms, that I was in no mood to fight about it and if they wanted to have an 'a' on the end of it they could. I thought the matter dropped, but this person had brought it back out into public chat. I even apologized if I had sounded bitchy because I am sick at the…Continue
I wake up each morning and bathe my statue of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe with water. I offer her
light, incense, and flowers before beginning my prayers.
She is my mother and I am affectionate towards her.
I am white, not Latino. I was raised in a nominally Protestant Christian home. My great grandpa was a fire and brimstone Baptist preacher.
I am Catholic by the curious movements…
