Wild Witch
Baba Yaga. Wild Woman. I walk in the forest and speak intimately with the animals. I dance barefoot in the rain without any clothes. I travel on pathways that I make myself and in ways that suit me. my instincts are alive and razor sharp. my intuition and sense of smell are keen. I freely express my vitality my sheer exuberant joyfulness to please myself because it is natural. it is what needs to be. I am the wild joyous life force. Come and meet me. Poem by Amy Sophia Marashinsky

SAGE: Companion of the Crone, the Sage has accumulated his wisdom through life experiences and is now at the peak harvest of his life. The Sage has seen his share of battles and these have shaped him. The Sage has been the youth, has raised the next generation of youth, and is now the bastion of wisdom and tradition for the grandchildren that follow. The Sage is elder to his people, holy man, cynic, truth-sayer, mystic, grandfather, and soul-shaker. His very archetypal title, Sage, means ‘wise‘. It should be remembered that wisdom comes with experience whereas knowledge does not need to take such an arduous route. Thus, the Sage has earned his place through action and is far more than a mere man of learning. He is the embodiment of the Masculine Mysteries, experience made manifest and dedicated to the service of family, clan, nation, and world community.

Bree, What Wiccan dictionary? I missed that one, not being a smarty but I really didn't know there was such a thing. Point me in the right direction, Blessings!

I made a copy of this graphic a long time ago and put it in my personal part of my BOS. I love it.

Thank you Bree, I will ask her and also do a search. Sounds like something a person could use.

Thanks for the invite. I don't call myself a crone. At 42, I don't think I have earned it but, crones and old salts are my preferred choice for company so I am happy to be here!

I'm sorry, I should have posted links to the wiccan dictionary sites. I always try to find at least three when researching anything. Her ya go.
And of course to get an non wiccan version...

You are not turning 60! Really? Gosh you are wise. :)

I'm going to be without a computer for awhile. I watch Aonghus on Wednesdays and will be able to get online for a while then but otherwise I won't have access to the internet. I'm not sure how long this will last. My computer died, Gary needs his laptop back and I'm jobless again. I'm also homeless again. I'll be staying with a friend here in GV. Goddess please, all I want for Yule is a job and a home of my own.
