Limitations and Expectations of Karma

Limitations and Expectations of Karma

For a long time now I’ve lived by the three-fold laws of karma. It’s really quite simple – what you put out into the world you get back times three, kind of a natural, built-in comeuppance system. And on the whole it’s done what it was supposed to, which is to encourage practitioners to always … Continue reading

A Wiccan Perspective on Grief

A Wiccan Perspective on Grief

“Suffering brings women to god.” So says Igraine in the Mists of Avalon movie (I can’t remember if she says this in the book as well, it’s been so long since I last read them.) This is something I’ve contemplated a lot lately, and without a satisfactory conclusion. The only solid thing I’ve deduced is … Continue reading

You know you’re a writer at heart when your subconscious response to death is to immortalize your lost loved one in a story. Especially when you haven’t written substantially or consistently for more than seven months. It’s during these times of great strife and grief that you realize – writing isn’t just the passion to … Continue reading

Guidelines to Performing a Wiccan Healing

Guidelines to Performing a Wiccan Healing

When you break down our Wiccan practices, there are three basic components. We focus on nurturing the world and the people around us, arranging energies and intent to end goals, and healing. So much of what we practice is about healing, whether we are focusing on helping the earth recover after a harvest or mending … Continue reading

Being Wiccan Means…

Being Wiccan Means…

Here in a couple of weeks our living situation is about to change again. My husband and I are moving into a house, but our apartment lease expires two months before the house will be ready, and the complex wouldn’t let us extend. So we’re moving in with his parents for the time being… or … Continue reading

Candle Creativity Spell

Candle Creativity Spell

And here is the second, more project-focused creativity spell that I have been working on. This one candle based, and does not result in the creation of a pouch, though some of the items you will need are the same. Candle magicks are some of the oldest in the world. They are easily made, and … Continue reading

Creativity Boost Spell (Long-term Goals)

Creativity Boost Spell (Long-term Goals)

Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things. – Ray Bradbury Creativity is the wellspring from which so much of our lives, both in and out of our Wiccan faith, comes from, and anyone who draws on … Continue reading

Catching Up…

Catching Up…

There was a time when I loved writing here like crazy and thought I would never find a reason to stop. But of course life happens. A wise man once told me that the Buddhists believe that nothing stays the same, that at some point all things shift. It was really profound to me at … Continue reading

A Witch’s Cat

A Witch’s Cat

I found this little gem on Imgur last night and had to share. The artist is a talented lady by the name of Heather Franzen.      

Pet Protection Spell

Pet Protection Spell

We Wiccans are an animal loving bunch and there’s no denying it. I don’t know a single Wiccan or witch who doesn’t have at least one animal, especially cats. I’ve had dogs, cats, rabbits, fish and a turtle once. My fiancé wants pet mice, an otter, a ferret (which I think would be awesome) and … Continue reading
