Currently, there are 57,305 members on Paganspace; so where the ever-loving fuck is everyone? Is there a new venue or is everyone bored? Recently, I have seen a few members from the days of yore; they have returned home to find a graveyard.
Facebook groups are retarded; this can't be what everyone is using.
My coven is starting a non-profit organization to help abused women. Although it is based in Indiana, the goal is to be able to help women nationwide eventually. Volunteers are needed. Please check it out and share the following group https://www.facebook.com/Hecates-Underworld-Kingdom-for-Women-1308573179155018/

I have been making wire-wrapped jewelry, and testing out the strength/stability of my jewelry to make sure that customers will be satisfied once I start selling on etsy or craigslist, and i found that after wearing my pendant for several months, my stone LIKES me. I have never been this close to a rock before.. tee hee..
Anyways.. the problem is I don't know what kind of stone it is, and also, I can tell that the stone can do nothing for me spiritually speaking.. that's just what I…

This week we look at the so-called Holy Grail.
What is this thing that people are so enamoured of? Did it even exist? People have been searching for it for hundreds of years, and it seems whenever they decide they can't find it, they create stories about it.
So, let's travel back the the 12th century, where the myth of the Holy Grail seems to have it's beginnings. And we'll take a look at some of the embellishments that have been attached to it over…Continue

Troubled times, big & small stuff, everyone has their own story to tell about them.
I've been blessed in so many ways, but I am not immune. My most current challenge is mobility.
Time hasn't turned out to be a trustworthy friend for my joints; I can attest. Walking, one of my most favorite activities, has gotten more & more difficult as time marches ever forward into the unknown future.
Still, I'm not ready to surrender the sublime joy of following a worn trail…Continue
The Magick of Masking
This week here on The Spiral Dance, let's create Magick through Masking. If you went to a Halloween party, what would you "Go As"?
We all wear masks, although the extent to which we layer ourselves or are aware of them varies greatly.
Masks are a familiar and vivid element in many folk and traditional pageants, ceremonies, rituals and festivals, and are often of an ancient origin.
One reason for wearing a mask is to pretend to be someone or…Continue

Spell candles in color white or ivory.
Dress candles with a mix of olive oil and cinnamon powder.
Sprinkle candles with a little yarrow/rosemary herbs from the garden.
If you are not going to use them same day, wrap in baking paper twist ends and tie with a little cord, yarn of thread I use yellow but you could use white or red or green. I tend to have prepared sets of 3 in storage in my magickal cabinet for when I want to use.
My wintergreen salve recipe is also…Continue

This week here on The Spiral Dance, we continue our celebration of Autumn as we look at some of the season's important associations.
Water is one of the elements in ancient Greek philosophy, and in Occult circles it's associated with the Western Quarter of the Circle, and with the season of Autumn. So we'll look at how and why Water got associated with the Autumn as we tie in some of their similar Magickal Properties.
Then we'll take a walk into an Autumn Garden with…Continue

My heart goes out to the brothers and sisters at Standing Rock. I wish for a peaceful resolution and send peaceful vibes daily.
In my culture it has always been about Mother Earth and all the elements that sustain life on this earth. It is the reason I am following the Wiccan path.. Nature is my church!
Here is a video by a local gentlemen from a First Nations down the highway from me. He is now at Standing Rock and I am following his posts on Facebook. But I thought I would…Continue
