Holly Anti-Nightmare Cross

 A 3″ x 3″ Holly equal-armed cross, pyrographed with the bindrune for nightmare prevention and Holly ogham. True folk magick…

Myth and Lore can be funny time passes and the stories are re-told, in many cases without benefit of setting pen to paper, so much gets misconstrued…even to the point of hilarity at times. So can be the story of placing a garland of Holly around the neck of a horse to prevent it having nightmares. Yes, animals do dream, but this is…

Ah the holidays are truly here. Not because the calendar decrees it. Oh no I have another way of knowing. How you might ask? Nothing to odd. A tantrum simply has to be thrown by a particular person. She never fails to provide however. Many of us proably deal with the same though. And we know how to deal. If you don't that sucks. With that I wish you well for another day. Until our paths cross again. Blessings.

Money Grows On Trees

I've struggled with money all my life.  I was the only child of a single mom in the 1970's and 1980's.  It did not take me log to pick up on my Mom's money anxiety.  I would curtail expressing my wants because I knew it would cause her distress.  The only time I really allowed myself to dream big was Christmas, because of the magic of Santa.  I cannot imagine how hard my mom must have worked to satisfy those desires.  In fact, I know she overcompensated.  I would wake up Christmas morning…

Superman versus the Sorceress


I’m sure we all know of “the Man of Steel” and of his heroic efforts in the fight against crime and human corruption.  We know that his alias is Clark Kent, and that Kent lives a relatively normal, quiet, farmer’s life outside the big city of Metropolis.

To his disadvantage—like all living things—Superman is highly allergic to Kryptonite: a primary element in the biological make-up of Krypton, the place of his birth.  While Kryptonite on his home planet would make him strong,…

Greetings my friends. As we stand on the edge of a holiday I wish you all well. I'll proably ramble tomorrow or maybe not. Holidays do make me thoughtful but at the same time they also make me more anti-social then usual. Not that it interests you. With that have a an extra special day. Until our paths cross again. Blessings.

The Gathering of Our Tribe

I want to wish everyone here in the US a Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is in a way a time when our various Tribes gather together. We travel from whereever we're living to whereever our larger family is - it may be over hundreds of miles, or just across town. But it's a time for us to renew our relationships with those who have been in our lives from the very beginning.

So, what is a "tribe"? Anthropologists don't really have answers, but they have alot of theories, and of…

I cannot be convinced of the value of some things

After living for a while, having experiences and perceptions tied into a way of being doesn't lead to some kind of inevitable sense of "questioning it all" if the way of being is found to be sufficient and without the weight of the guilt of necessarily being wrong, so to have those beliefs challenged in a way that leads to causing the questioning of the integrity of the being itself ceases to be believable as a natural occurrence, by it's own way of cause, and shows itself to be a means of…

can't tell if this counts as an answered prayer

OK so I'm new to Wicca and I decided to see I can find some prayers that didn't need candles or anything (I can't afford that and getting a job is a real struggle for me). I found a list of prayers and saved it really deep into my computer in a folder nobody would want to go into (I save my Wiccan stuff in about 5 layers of folders). I didn't use those prayers very often but just yesterday I decided to do a prayer that asks for a good day and a woman I don't trust who lives with my family…

Aztec God of Drunkenness

Archeologists have made some surprising discoveries at the site Zultépec-Tecoaque in Tlazcala, Mexico. A full-size throne built of tezontle, a volcanic rock, and a “spectacular” cylindrical carved stone that displays the glyph, or pictograph, of the Aztec god Ometochtli, or “Two Rabbit.” Ometochtli was the Aztec pulque god and one of the 400 rabbit gods. This area of Mexico was famous for producing pulque in Ancient Mexico.


Also found was a cistern containing the skeletal…

Teachings of the Wolf, Gifts of the Mockingjay: Part 2.

Last night I went to the theatre and saw the last of the Hunger Games, and I could not help but reflect on its story. I revere Suzanne Collins for her work; cunning, strategizing, empathetic, reflective and sympathetic to our experience. She gave words and a story to our time; to my time: A flawless rendition of our acts towards each other, our triumphs and our follies of today. But I digress (and rightfully so.) It moved me many times to tears as I saw the districts oppressed, and the…

Teachings of the Wolf, Gifts of the Mockingjay: Part 1.

I dreamt last night: Father Wolf took the form of a man and held me as I slept. He whispered softly in my ear, "Let me hold you, show you how to love yourself, and support you until you are strong enough to love you as much as you need." He sat behind me and held me next to a fire under a moonless sky; the stars ablaze as his embrace tightened to the point that I could not move. It was extraordinarily comfortable and I fell asleep a second time, in his arms. I dreamt within that dream, that…

I've prodded around on this site multiple times, but never really stuck to it. I'm very hopeful to perhaps find and make new friendships here. Sharing spirituality and practices with like-minds should be good for me. I need to reach out, so here I am! I'm very timid and anxious, so being the first to message might not be very likely.

Anyone here dabble in ancestry, death, animals, or trees?

Call to Initiation

This article does not read in chronological order of time set by modern man.

Fire comes from within, Air is a force without, Water is formless, Earth Encompasses. Spirit is created.

I am a rider of the four winds. A rider of the four winds combines the elements together in the common ground. Some call me by the name of fawes. I am creator of mythology, writer of folk tales, and healer of homeo sapien sapien. During the times of antiquity lived four tribes of humanity.  These…
