A Queer Goes to Hel: Winternights reflections by a gay trans man

With it being Winternights (Samhain) here in the southern hemisphere, I thought I’d start my first blog post pondering my relationship with the Queen of the Dead.


I’ve sometimes wondered if I’m simply drawn to things that people don’t want to acknowledge. Which seems totally fair, since to the world at large I am one of them. As a neurodivergent gay man with a vagina, my very existence is subversive and considered too controversial for primary school students. It should come…

This morning I was putting my makeup on quietly in my bathroom. On the wall over my toilet I have 2 x 8x10 pictures hanging that I made. With red paper background and lace covers under the glass. They hang securely on picture hanging hooks which the picture mount fits tightly on. There is no way these should fall down off the wall. But..not just one..both pretty much flew off the wall..missing the ceramic toilet bowl..nothing broke..both hangers stayed on wall and back of frame still…

Dandelion Cream!

Hey guys!  Check out the dandelion hand-moisturizer that I whipped up this afternoon!  I harvested two cups of large dandelion blossoms, as well as whatever violet blossoms that I happened to spy, and using a double-boiler I used a heat-infusion method to infuse the phytochemicals of the dried…

I've seen a jinn. :P They live in an alternate dimension very close to our own.. not even kidding.. -_- I've wandered into their rooms and spaces that were built into the house my grandmother lived in. Those places were so real that I really believed I'd find a hidden door in a specific room of the house. I've watched one dancing to the colored light put off by a computer on a moonlit night.. I saw that with my naked eye and watched for a long time. The encounter I had with the unseen djinn…

Magical Practices

After encountering jinns and knowing how much of a hassle being psychically attacked over a long period of time is, I plan to adjust my magical practices to play safer if I am able to.. v.v;

I'll leave the jinn to the people that know exactly how to handle them.. I am not an expert in those areas.. I will refer people experiencing jinn attacks or that have jinns in their homes to someone much more knowledgable if I can.. I just don't want to deal with them..

I will…

I want to burn everything

Reason why I say this is because I feel as if I need to disconnect any and all connections that may still be there from my ex fiancee. 

I am going to try and make a long story short... I dated a man in prison for the past 4 years. Real smooth talker. I thought he truly loved me and he really didnt. I was finally fed up with all the verbal abusive and demanding of money and this and that. I changed my phone number (previous blog post) and now I am working on finding another place to…

Masons and muslim singles!

Been awhile since I"ve been on here.

Since I've been gone, I've become a Freemason and recently joined the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis and am now a Rosicrucian (though quite the neophyte).

I'm serious about advancing my occult study and I can feel some of the reward already. I look at my blind religious friends with a bit of pity.

Why the hell is this website giving me Muslim Singles ads? I refuse to get my…

Blessed Beltane!

This week, we celebrate Beltane! Beltane is happening on Sunday, the first of May! It's a festival of Fertility and Love as we welcome the flowering of Nature's Return. In our mythology Beltane represents the Mating of the Goddess and the God. It's The Original White Wedding!

So, we'll talk in more detail about the meaning and significance of May Day from our earliest history. Plus we'll talk about the mythologies and customs that are traditionally associated with Beltane. And, while…

This was hard.....but it had to be done....

I did the hardest thing ever yesterday :'(. I had to change my phone number to keep my ex fiancee whom is serving time in prison and is just under 2 years from release to keep him from calling me. He was so verbally abusive to me. I tried so hard to help him and he took advantage of me.

It was really hard on me because I thought he was really it for me. the hateful voicemails and the begging and pleading and then fake crying just to get me to come back I couldnt take it…

Still got it

Went to my local Scottish games today and although I’ve been away from Heathenry proper for awhile now I had no trouble spotting the prisontru and folkish douche bags.Many who only know Vahalla as the “Norse” Heaven and I even saw one shirt proclaiming the owner was an American Viking while I saw more than one “What doesn’t kill me,better run,Odin is my god" shirt

Beltane Celebration Ideas

So I am solitary celebrating Beltane on my own. I haven't read much about it.. I need to! but I know it about rebirth, fertility and growth etc. I am needing ideas for my altar? I also seen a really neat way to make a flower crown. They said to take like 2 pipe cleaners and twist them together in a ring and then weave fresh flowers all around it?! 

I was wondering if I could use artificial flowers? I am assuming I can since I am making my own crown. and then get ribbons of the colors…

Curses; Ethical or Not ?

This is a subject near and dear to my heart. I have been a witch for only four years, and i continually hear this debate. To curse or not to curse is a much argued topic among us, and i thought i'd put my two cents in.

Personally, i am not opposed to cursing people who have done harm to my family or friends. Lady Karma has a habit of taking far too long to give the people what they gave back, and i feel that a proactive approach is a good idea.

However, i can understand why some… Continue

Contacting Spirits....

So I had decided to try and contact a spirit....I know therre are several different methods to go about contacting a spirit. I just worked with what I had. I used my radio. I put it on the AM band and chose a frequency that was super staticky.. I put up a grid of crystals around my radio. Amethyst, Black Obsidian, Angelite, Clear Quartz and Selenite. Here is what happened...

yeah I tried contacting a spirit last night using my radio on the AM…

The Old Gods, or New?

I was doing a little reading last night about shamanism:

[And just so you know, I will likely never get into the verbiage-ethics of the use of the word shamanism as it applies to the spiritual practice of awareness/traveling to realms not so bound by our physical natures. This unending debate is steeped in opinions about cultural misappropriation, appropriate language, and clear communication. Until we can agree upon a term that relates the general practices, we're stuck with the…
