This is a time when the ancestors are honored, divinations for the new year are performed, and festivals are held in honor of the gods. It is a time of final harvest before…

What was thought to be your typically charming Halloween decoration depicting a lynched woman hanging from a tree, turns out to be a genuine suicide.
In the town of Frederica, Delaware, a 42-year-old woman, perhaps distraught by the fact that she lived in Delaware, hung herself from a tree near a busy road on a Tuesday night. The body managed to hang there until the next day and was viewed by…

Feeling greatly amused with my old friend’s stories, I asked him if he was convinced he had seen fairies dancing on the hillside, when he made answer, "Yes, indeed, I am certain of that, and I have smelt fairies too." On my asking what they smelt like, Tommy replied, "Like the mist off the sea, or the droppings from a…Continue

Yesterday I got a tattoo of a bear print on my ankle. Long story short for the reason behind it is I found one of my spirit guides is a brown mama bear, and she gave me the courage not to hide who I am anymore. This is my third tattoo, but it is the first to have any meaning behind it, and the first in color. I don't know if either of those points has anything to do with my experience this time around, but this tattoo isn't as fun as i was wanting it to be. My other tattoos gave me no…Continue

MACHA MÓRRÍGU was the all-devouring great queen of the Irish gods. Outrunning and swallowing up her foes, she symbolised the ravenous vehemence that nourishes victory with the rich pickings of the vanquished. Associated with rainstorms and crows, she may once have been held manifest in engulfing rivers and dark rainclouds in their role as…Continue

Acherontia lachesis is a large (up to 13 cm wingspan) Sphingid moth found in India and much of the Oriental region, one of the three species of Death's-head Hawkmoth, also known as the Bee Robber.
It is nocturnal, and very fond of honey; they can mimic the scent of honey so that they can enter a hive unharmed to get honey.

It is as beautiful as it is rare. A frost is created on autumn or early winter mornings when ice in extremely thin layers is pushed out from the stems of plants or occasionally wood. This extrusion creates wonderful patterns which curl and fold into gorgeous frozen petioles giving this phenomenon both its name and its appearance.

'Cailleach' by Richard de Graeme:
Winter howls and wind does moan
With Cailleach’s frost is sown.
The Blue Hag the ground in grief.
Her youth has fallen like the leaf.
Line of face and frozen breast,
No warmth, no milk to suckle the rest.
With this loss the tempests rage.
Creatures crawl from shallow…

'Am I what you wanted, Mother?
A shining daughter of the meadow’s delight?
I fear not, for I am a mass of scars,
A tiny boneyard rattling the wretched night.
I am sorry to disappoint, fair one
I am not what you had hoped.
No sweet songs of childish innocence
Escape this strangled throat.
I was never…Continue

Pale and sharp in the ragged dark
And in the silken milk of night

I consider Thee, Sister Moon
Hanging by a silver thread
of stars singing lullabies
As You put Mankind to bed.
I consider Thee, Sister Moon
Controlling the World with gentle…
