Just Another Magic Monday

I wake up on a Monday morning, get up, do my morning ablutions and pray to great Anpu/Anubis. Throughout the day I feel kind of groggy, I'm not really in the mood to restart my freaking fitness routine but I feel pretty into mixing magic.


What to do.. What to do?


Throughout the day I carry on preparing for my later ritual of the evening. Poor Caramel has to be put down. He was an old rat and in much pain. I light my candles to Hekate and Anpu and…

Lets Get Crafty ....A Witchy Wreath Of Protection

Welcome my lovelies !I recently completed a huge protection ward /witches wreath for a friend .This offered up the ideal opportunity for me to share some of the how to of crafting a ward of protection.First off she had her own wreath form she wanted used. Although very nice it was too flimsy to weave the center or support what was going to go on it ,I solved this by tying in a smaller sturdier wreath to the center ,thus creating a stable palet to add to.Before tying the smaller wreath to the… Continue

We, the Bridge

There is something strange that comes over me in Circle. I can feel it,

magnetic in pull, a longing that isn't mine, but that is mine to

express.



The Land around me hungers, and looks ever skyward, toward Her.



And in return, the Heavens gaze down, and there is longing in that gaze.



To me, in my time in the Circle, this is what I have discovered. Our gods

are strange, in the accord of other IndoEuropean-descended gods, who are

usually gods of the… Continue

The Book of Coming Forth by Day

To Begin...



The Book of Coming Forth by Day, named the Book of the Dead by

Egyptologists, describes the existence of the soul in the intermediate

realm between Ta (the world below) and Nut (the world above). This

realm is described as Dwat (the world in between) which can be found

similarly in other religions as… Continue

What myths are....

Paganism is impregnated with myth, from greek to norse to egyptian. Almost every pagan you meet is at least familiar with one or two. However, I've noticed that a lot do not seem to know what to do with them. What is the point of mythology? Too often I see people taking mythology literally. Someone who believed that "orbs" were the souls of people who did not have the money to pay Charon for passage comes to mind.



One of my favorite quotes:



"Myths are…

Looking Through - Page One

This is the beginning of Looking Through, the story I wrote for NaNoWriMo. It's generally the only piece of the whole 50,000 words that I don't think is overly terrible. It still needs some heavy editing, but I'm posting it because I'm proud and self-centered and want to show off a little. =P

Please, please comment?

The Crucifixion Complex in Modern Paganism

As of late I have been working a lot, so if this seems really lame/what are you saying/huh-like, then I apologize, but yet again tool-age on another site has lead me to type up this little diddy (no, not P-diddy), so here we go.



It seems that being a solitary to many is just another way of saying "I have no clue about Wicca/Paganism/Heathenism, so give me all your knowledge" kinda look, but as a solitary who has done their homework, I can only begin to tell you how much it kills me to… Continue

My Intro

Just wanted to put this out there before I head to bed.
I am an Eclectic Solitary with interests running the gamut from Druidry to WitchCraft to Heathenism and even authentic Native American Paganism if possible. (attempting to get in touch with all aspects of my blood history in one fell swoop! Half German, Irish, Italian and some Cherokee)


I am seeking any books that are 201 varieties. (Thank you Lady Morgen and others in the chat for your suggestions!) I also…

Disconnected



I haven't been very active, and i want to be it's just hard lately. I am trying to get myself back in order a bit. I am super busy all the time, 2 toddlers, being a military wife, school. So i have been feeling very disconnected from myself as of late, and I am having a hard time getting connected again.


As of right now I am clearing my house of clutter, being in the military we move a lot, and we downsized greatly, so we have been living in clutter, and as…

Psychic Larvae and Psychic Vampirism

Many people of the internet world have heard stories of so-called psychic vampires, willingly or unwillingly feeding off the energy of those around them. Although it is easy to dismiss these claims as the ravings of deluded attention seekers, there is some validity to claims that people can drain one’s energy, albeit not in a supernatural way. In my view, there are three classifications for psychic vampires.



The first…

Pass Lives

For some reason I could not get the word ~Pass lives~ out of my head.

So I went into my room and looked into my book of shadows, and then I found it, a pass lives meditation.

. I would like to know some insight on past issues and events that are affecting my present life.

But in a way I feel un easy about it.

I would like for people to comment because I would like to know how your pass lives meditation went, if you have already done it.

Thank you and…

30 Posts of Truth...Day 6....Something you hope you never have to do..

I really DO NOT like this question...who wants to talk about things they never hope to do..so let's just get this one out of the way...I decided that anything having to do with death is off the list because that is a given and frankly, I am not writing down anything anywhere that has to do with THAT subject...the whole Law of Attraction thing and all...I don't want any awful manifestations coming about as some weird result of what I wrote here. (some pun intended)

The Magical Properties of... Punctuation, Spelling, and Even the Enter Key!

One of the biggest benefits to living in today's day and age, is the whole internet, "Information Superhighway." That's an amazing thing, definitely, but something that I'm seeing more and more of, is people unable to properly communicate or get their point across.



I do not necessarily consider myself the best writer, and gods know that I make mistakes as well. However I read a LOT of resume's, as well as formal letters. I worked for years writing proposals,…

Father In Distress, If Anyone Can Help...

Okay, I'm not normally one to throw my personal business out to the whole world... especially in this format, either. But since I am believing in the God and Goddess to help me through this as best as possible, I'm brining my issue to the community to see if there is anyone that can do anything to help me in this situation... If possible... Yes, it may be a sob story a little bit, but at the same time as much as I need to just come out and say it if there is anyone that can help, I would be…

Ooo look, a poem.

Summer showers and winter bowers

A time and place this life devours

Where we've knotted

Once we wove

A way to send the wasted hours

A way to waste the sending powers.…

30 Honest answers (I totally stole this from Makoons, Jennifer, and Nightshade)

1. Something you hate about yourself.

My awkwardness. There are times where I don't want to say anything because instead of presenting myself in a logical and easy to understand kind of fashion, when I speak I tend to find a story within a story and this is rather confusing. It was far worse when I was younger, but I have missed out on opportunities (job and social) because I confuse people.



2. Something you love about yourself.

My resilience. My life (one could argue)… Continue
