Book Review: Ellen Dugan - Natural Witchery

Greetings everyone!

Natural Witchery by Ellen Dugan is not the first book I have read about the Craft, but it is the first I review. This book is very different than other ones I have read. It is very personal, which is indeed the author's trademark. I like that aspect very much, because it gives you a good view on life as a witch. But it is not the book to read if you're new, because it lacked a good explanation of the basics. I have read from others that she does have good books on…

another week in the books

Yes in the next twelve or so hours this week will be at an end. As usual that is good news though honestly this has been a mellow week. Last on the other hand I was finding it very hard to give a damn about the work, especially Friday. If not for a certain dancing koloa that bad mood might have carried over to the weekend. Instead I laughed and was reminded that there is actually very little to really boil over where work is concerned. Show up,do the work,go home. Repeat. That at the core is…

White Animals

I am fascinated by white animals Not because they are white, but because white animals come to me in my dreams, meditations, and quite literally to my front door!

I have dreamed of walking with a white wolf, and dreamed of a white lion, and a white eagle. In my meditations the white wolf reappears, as well as a white hawk.

A white husky showed up at my doorstep more than once. She looks like a wolf; and on one occasion while sitting on my couch I looked over at the front door…

The Tradition of the Blackbird (Druid Dhubh)

         One of the Gaelic names for the blackbird, Druid Dhubh, means the Black Druid. Druid Dhubh is a bird which sings beautifully and melodiously at twilight, and even later. Twilight is the shimmering time-a time of transition between one reality and the next. Such in-between times are considered especially significant in the Druid tradition. The blackbird sings to us as the world changes around us-as the time of daylight and consciousness and the concrete world gives way to the…

One of the reasons that cultural appropriation is a hard concept to grasp for so many is that Westerners are used to pressing their own culture onto others and taking what they want in return. We tend to think of this as cultural exchange when really, it’s no more an exchange than pressuring your neighbors to adopt your ideals while stealing their family heirlooms.

The fact is, Western culture invites and, at times, demands assimilation. That is why all business people wear suits even…

I'd forgotten how to write

I'd forgotten how to write so the sun blazing across a blue mountain sky picked up a stick dipped in a pristine wilderness and banked ribbons of blue with gnarled fingers. Sturdy browns under an umbrella of geometrical green.

A fisherman outnumbered, glancing at moss colored lichen. Daring fish go darting by while I scar the landscape scratching out words.

I hate poetry.

Legend of the Corn Husk Doll

Legend of the Corn Husk Doll

There are varying stories as to why corn husk dolls have no faces. One explanation is the belief of roaming spirits and their ability to possess the dolls by going through the eyes. Another reason is that only the Creator can put a face on…

no real title for this one

No title but here is a question for you? What is it do you think that makes people so restless? Me personally I tend to be content with what I have. Its all hard earned trust me so I try to remember that fact. Around me however, especially lately, I've been seeing a lot of folk discontent. Not so much with life in general but with things they have. Yes poccessions are nice and trust me there things I'd like to get my hands on. A new camaro for example. Isn't that sort of shallow though? Then…

I speak English, not Latin so I don't do spells using any other language than plain English. Nor do I go around saying Wiccan Terms such as "So Mote It Be, Blessed Be, As Above So Below, Merry Meet" etc, etc....I mean why? I don't mind others speaking this way, but I just have no need to.

A Journey Through Spirituality

Merry Meet!

my name is Marie Moonstone, I don't really like using my mundane name. I am 21 years old and am new to being pagan. However I have been drawn to It's magical pull all of my life. Now that I am an adult, married, and my own person, I can walk down this path freely.

Growing up, I was in a very strict Christian atmosphere. Pentecostal on one side and Catholic on the other. I went to church Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night, Friday night. Pretty much… Continue

another day

This has become part of the morning routine. Wake up, visit the nieghborhood to say hey then get ready for work. Not long after I'm out the door for that work. This week at least the weather here in southern indiana is being kind to those of us outdoors. No humidity and temps barely cracking eighty. Beautiful. So much so I don't mind spending the whole day there at work. Crank the temp up and toss in the whole heat index thing and it changes. And I'm just randomly rambling I realize so I'll…

Today, I slept in a little. When I got up, I drove to the ferry station and took the ferry to an island - a different island this time. I rented a bike and rode around the island. I send text messages to my friends. There is a quarry there, but I had forgotten the road that I needed to take to it.

A Lamas Celebration

It's Lammas, or Lughnasadh, the Sabbat where many Wiccans and Pagans celebrate the beginnings of the harvest. This Sabbat is about the cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth -- the grain god dies, but will be reborn again in the spring.

Depending on your tradition, you may also observe this Sabbat as the day of the Celtic craftsman god, Lugh.   Lugh was known to the Celts as a god of craftsmanship and skill -- in fact, he was known as the Many-Skilled God, because he was good at…

Synergetic Relationships

If there is one thing that we are taught and is true, it is that we are all truly the same and all share the same basic need: we all want happiness and do not want suffering. Many different spiritual paths and faiths believe and teach this, and I believe it to be true. In this way, you and I are one in the same. Even if we believe we have nothing else in common with one another, we can be at peace and find comfort in knowing that we are both, you and I, organic life forms that do not want to…

July Full Moon

july full moon 2014  This month, since I will be travelling soon, I decided to do a safe travel ritual.  There were a few things that I did.  I made a safe travel oil, written charm, and infused a bracelet.  I will be anointing myself with the oil before I leave to go to the airport.  I didn’t want to carry the vial with me.  I wouldn’t want them to think I was doing anything hinky.  I will be carrying the…
