Let's take advantage of these Hot Summer Days! We'll head off to the Southern Quarter and do some Fire Magick!.
We'll take a look at the Qualities that the Element of Fire posseses; how they're used in Occult Traditions.
Does that sound like Pyrolatry to you? If you worship Fire it just might. Fire is worshipped by itself in many cultures, but more commonly it's associated with Fire Dieties. As you might expect, examples abound.
Along all these lines I want to share with…Continue

Now that we’re in, I’m opening boxes. My plan was to open 5 boxes per day, but that has gotten stymied because all I see are book boxes, and bookcases aren’t set up with shelves yet. My microwave oven, toaster, and slow cooker all arrived on time on Thursday afternoon. The people whom Len and I eat lunch with over at the clubhouse are congenial and friendly. The lunches are a little watery, but edible. There’s one that sticks out in my mind the most and that was the…Continue

Nothing is promised. A great deal is possible.
Singer’s sisters, Mirra, Cali and Arla, were cheerful, responsible, warm and witty like their mom. Even in appearance they resembled her and each other, though they had not yet achieved her manner of calm wisdom. Though they might appear less vivid younger copies of Maris, each had her own distinct flair and essence. They were all wizards of cloth, weaving, sewing, designing clothing and other useful textile wares. They had their own…Continue

There are five things needed to start with Inner Circle Sanctuary (ICS). Something you may already have is the pentagram pendant, ring, or other jewelry. The pentagram is not only an ancient protective symbol, it is also the premiere symbol of our religion and ICS has specifics in regards to its appropriate style. Our specifics are definitive for us and may differ for any other Wiccan group.
The star must be an openwork woven line star. Non-woven stars may be acceptable but it cannot…Continue

Caela found she could heal in another way. She knew without thought that she had profound feelings of empathy, profound insights, much more than was ordinary for the extraordinary people of whom she had been born and nurtured. She had from earliest times learned without knowing she was learning to encapsulate the feelings driving into her from all around that she might work through and understand them without being overwhelmed. It had always been like a special extra mother within her…Continue

during sex? Or do you go something like, "Oh God, Oh God, Jeeeszzzus!" If so, is this evidence that you on a subconscious level are still very much trapped in the religion of your childhood?
Jase was Singer's father, not Aron. She had heard Maris talking with her father, Lev. Aron was Maris's husband, father of her three daughters, though apparently not of her youngest, her son, Singer. When the troubles started getting serious back in the city, Aron had not felt his wife and children worth the sacrifices of standing by them. He was not an empath, had only married one. He had become resentful over the course of that marriage, feeling that Maris was better than he was in every…Continue

Young Caela was able to adjust and thrive because she was tuned in to herself, to her own perceptions and power. Her parents, Lev and Letta, they exist within her, but so does all that psychic energy moving through her. To make use and sense of that, she needs integrate experiential impressions, integrating a trusted sense of self.
How moderate can temperatures be? Do we have the ranges we do have because of some specificity of size or shape or orbit and distance form our Sun? I'm not…Continue

I understand, compassionately, that too much choice is overwhelming to an individual trying to navigate a reasonably safe, reassuringly livable, life. That should not excuse or glorify obstruction against less usual ways, more ambitious or far-seeing strategies. Caela does not feel the pain or outrage of the outcast. She is happily enmeshed in her community, comfortably acknowledged. The solitude and self-directing she has carved out to accommodate her gifts, honed into skill for her best…Continue

Tom has left several concerned messages: why don’t I respond? Isn’t he my magical companion?
My wine glass needs refilling. The curtains are drawn against impending dawn.
I thought of calling Danny, but there’s too much to say. I’m not ready to say any of it. Thank Goddess I have this time, this place, to dissolve and, hopefully, resurrect. What do people do when their reality fragments and they have no realistic choice but to keep moving forward, doing the day job, paying the…Continue

One of our very favorite stories is of how Our Lady Morgana started our classes back in 1991. She had been in a coven for a few years and was working at a metaphysical shop where she encountered many, many people who…Continue

Blessed Litha to everyone here in the northern half! The sun is high in the sky, the air is all warm and friendly. Let's stay up real late, then we can build some fires and roll them down the hills!.
It's been done forever, it's still being done now and it will always be done. We'll talk about where the word Litha comes from and what the holiday means for modern Pagans. Also, interestingly, Midsummer continues to be very important in mainstream societies in different cultures…Continue

I feel a kinship to Caela. It's not just because she is a creature of my mind, woven from bright bits of thought, feelings, fantasy. It's like she can see inside me and understand as I look into her, learn her. She does not look like me. I envision her as slightly tall, strong frame, dark hair and eyes, swarthy skin, quiet, pensive, yet with a strong sense of somewhat ironic humor, a merry open laugh, sweet loving smile, mischievous grin, dancing countenance. She is intelligent, not erudite.…Continue

Who do I think I am? Secretly:
Once upon a time a princess grew into a queen, and then into a crone, and then into a legend that never dies. When all she wanted was a world that made sense in which she could feel free to be alive. But that makes no sense. That's not me. Must be the alcohol talking -- in vino a lot of nonsense, hyperbole, and sloppy thinking.
Caela wouldn't need wine. But they would probably have come up with a process for making fermented fruit juice, along…Continue

It's not the drugs -- anyway, they are only mild antidepressants along with that old central nervous system shut-down stand-by measured in proofs below 30. I'm a self-medicator from way back; but I have considerably grown up and cut way down. I refuse to touch Celia's pain medication, even though she left quite a nice stash behind when they evacuated her. Or, what is the word? They removed her from her former life to watch her die. I should evacuate myself, get back to where I once belonged.…Continue

Chaldeans(Christians) have always faced discrimination in Iraq, they recently faced genocide at the hands of the DAESH. Our big wonderful federal government, that so many of you are so fond of, is currently rounding of Chaldeans to be sent back to Iraq. Some of these people have been in the US their entire lives and only speak English. They will be sent to a part of the world where they can be possibly beheaded, crucified, raped and sold into slavery.…Continue

Moon in Virgo, maybe? I’m losing track. It’s all one long wintry night.
None of that life so mine so few months ago seems real to me now. I am not that person who lived there. Can't go back; don't have a clue how to go forward. Celia's still taking care of me -- I have no financial woes. I can stay here for probably longer than I would ever need to, meeting all my 21st century needs, even indulgences, without having to concern myself with paychecks. One less thing.
