Sometimes everything seems to go wrong at once. It needs to stop. This has been a difficult week. My mom was readmitted to the hospital with weak kidney function. My brother's wife left him. My sister is still in an abusive relationship and refuses to talk to me. Work has been demanding and stressful. And now I am going to miss my group's Beltane celebration. I missed it last year, too! I feel terrible. Beltane is being hosted by the same person and I worry she will think I am slighting her.… Continue

Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday yesterday. I love the art! I had to work in SLC this week so I didn't get a chance to check in with PS all day yesterday. It's been a weird week: my mom is in the hospital for the second time and my brother's wife took the kids and left him. So it was really nice to sit down this morning and see a page full of color, happiness, and well wishes. Thank you again to the people who take the time to wish others a happy… Continue

I have been exhausted and cranky lately. I snap at people over the tiniest thing. It's been this way for about a week now. Today if I wasn't on here, I was sleeping. I seriously couldn't hold my head up! I have noticed this in others around me as well. Is this the whole Mars in retrograde thing?

In Spring we speak of seeds
foreseeing market days hale and fair
succulent fruit, trilling herbs,
and all the spicey chatter of conviviality
First there was the seed
plowed under to taste Earth,
swell with water,
burst into fecund brew building
cells of chlorophyll to catch the fire,
symbiotically breathe, exchanging
death for life

Altho my heart is sad, the day you have given me is beautiful Mother.
Just a short note to say my very good friend Boogie was killed by a car last Sunday. She was and always will be my Favorite Friend! Treat her well Akasha.

We can lift ourselves out of ignorance, we can find ourselves as creatures of excellence and intelligence and skill. We can be free! We can learn to fly!

Leave PaganSpace? Leave Wicca (because I am thoroughly sick of and disgusted by the continual.."You do that WRONG! You are fluffy" bullshit)? Or just give a hearty and collective "FUCK OFF!" to those who love judging and tricking people into this "judgment trap?" Maybe I don't worship and think the way a "Wiccan" does. But I have come a long way. I have not just read a book and said "Okay, that's how it is." I have tried out many different ways to worship and BE Wiccan. I have found what works… Continue

All the yearly Beltane preparation madness is underway at my home. The sounds of frantic packing, last-minute cleaning, "does this skirt make my butt look fat?!" and the like fill my house. The animals are unhappy. Those who have been here long enough to have experienced an "away" festival recognize the signs. Those who haven't are clued in by their savvy roomies. My dog is whining like a hungry newborn puppy and I think I might have to make him into a hood ornament if he doesn't stop it.… Continue

Witchcraft ... is a spiritual path.
You walk it for nourishment of the soul,
to commune with the life force of the universe,
and to thereby better know your own life.

The Kemetic faith upholds that one aspect of compassion is respect for others’ rights and views - it is the basis of reconciliation.

I was sitting at home chilling on the couch my son was off with my parents (aka his grandparents) hear a knock at the door. I get up to answer and there stands 2 japanese guys who said they are the "FBI Samurai of Japan" that they are here to… Continue

So we all know that a SUFI holy man is called a Deverish. This is one of their "moral" lessons that has been handed down over the centuries.
One morning in the "long ago" a certain Deverish awoke with an enlightment. He realized that one does not have to help a "sinner" through constant bitching or nagging. One can be more subtle and still have an effect.
In order to experiment with this concept, he thinks about which of the village sinners most needs his help, and decides… Continue

I think that rain is one of the most romantic things in the world. I love to just sit and listen to the rain as it pounds the rooftops and hits the ground, theres a feeling that the whole world is being washed clean. I think sitting down to listen to the rain with hot chocolate a warm blanket and someone you love is incredibly romantic ecpesially if its in the woods under a large tree or out at an old farmhouse in an abandoned barn. there is nothing so beautiful, pure and cleansing as… Continue

My mom died last year on the 22nd of May. She's buried in Arlington National Cemetary. I live in Kansas right now, 20.5 hour drive from Arlington, but we're moving the end of May. I wanted to have the movers come out on the 24th so we could make a quick trip to Arlington and visit the grave with my sister on the 22nd, then get back in time to be there when the movers get there, then head to Idaho...Yuck. Anyway...my hubby schedules the movers on the 22nd because they won't be able to deliver… Continue

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
'Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!'
He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.…

This morning after I took my boys to school I sat down at my desk here and my daughter was looking at an old photo album I had from high school/post high school days. She saw this rose I had on the very first page of the album with a heart cut out of white paper and a date on it, October 15, 1988.
"Mommy, when your done can I touch this flower?" I asked her what flower. She said "This one mommy, and she opened my album and there it was. The first rose a boy ever gave… Continue

On Thursday, we are still influenced by the preceding energy of the week. Saturn and Uranus continue to be very close to their opposition, which as I described reflects the tearing down of existing structures that may be too restrictive and prevents growth. Moreover, the Moon still continues to move through the sign of Scorpio after achieving its Full Moon status yesterday, which brings to the surface problems, difficulties, and frustrations that we may not have been aware of. In essence we are… Continue
