AM I LESS THAN WHAT I CALL MYSELF?How??Just how am I suppose to fit it all in??These days are not long enough to let me devote enough time. Does that mean, what I do have time for, makes me less than what I call myself??Hardly what you expected, I…Continue
When we least expect them, life is filled with moments, that require a strength that we doubt we even hold. We are called upon to dig deep within and combat feelings that overwhelm us. We are required to face fears, which we didn’t even know, we may…Continue
Two days ago, we laid Gram to rest beside Gramp. The cemetery is one, that is filled with rolling gently hills, and surrounded by trees, that seem to reach into the sky. My Dad is laid a short distance down from both of them. Mom placed one of the…Continue
For all of you that see this...The wind is whistling, as it howls around the house. The rain is falling in sheets, similar to steady walls of water. Tree branches are breaking and snapping all around the house. The road is looking like a rolling…Continue

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Ocean Mist By: MJ
The fog gently rolled in upon the beach,almost cloaking the maiden from view....The sea crashed against the rocks and the only sound was that of a lone seagull....As she stood there trembling, she looked out toward the sea....
The foam off of the waves encircled her feet, as she slowly began to raise her arms upward to the sky....The moon, once hidden within the fog, slowly began to glow with a soft amber light....Her gaze now focused on the moon, the light shinning down illuminated her face.
With her hands still raised, the wind blew the hood from her hair...The white robe she wore, glistened and danced in the air that swirled around her....Lost, yet found, she seemed to be absorbing a flow of energy.
Her trembling so visible, shuddered, and then ceased to be....As the waves quieted, the wind stilled, and the fog faded.....The stars once hidden from view, began to twinkle....
Her face that before had shown such despair, now appeared serene.... The burdens that had brought her here on this night,were gone for the moment........Her inner peace restored.

Color of Amethyst, touched by the hands of time.
Sweeter and bolder, as like a fine wine.
Each day is a gift, that we look into anew.
Healing and insight, brought to so few.
Connecting and Linked, Just us two.
Dangerous and unknown, who would know just what to do.
The Lord and the Lady, that is who......
Life has a way of completing circles that are left unfinished..... Tis strange , but so true...
I hope that all, had a joyous holiday today.
That you were able to spend it with people who are special to you , and recall just how lucky you are to have them.......
Often, we forget, in the day to day struggles, to say Thank You for what blesses our lives. Like so many holidays, recognizing the people and blessings, shouldn't only happen on a holiday designated for this....It is…
Message to Mommy and Daddy.....
When you think you are all alone, and I have left you ..
Just remember this,
I am just playing hide and seek within your heart
The next time you feel the gentle caress of the wind upon your face,
know that I just felt I was being missed,
so you deserved an extra kiss.
The next time that sunbeam floats down before your eyes,
remember, that is me, within that light
I am there to brighten up that darkest…
It is that time of year again, when change is starting its spiral...
The leaves have slowly started to add their color to the world, reminding us of what is yet to be.... Paths forged and new journeys begin, Twists and turns of the past may rear their heads, to remind of us how far we have traveled....
For some, this is often the season of questioning the direction they have chosen....For others, this is a time to reaffirm the path they have set upon for their…Continue
The Pathway versus the Highway……
Time and time again, someone asks:
How long will it take till I know my deity?
How long before I know I am on the right spiritual journey?
How soon will I be able to do a spell and know it was successful?
When will I find all the answers to my questions?
I guess I want to know, when did seeking a path, became a drag down the super-highway?
I stopped and thought of this comparison,…Continue
