A few years ago a Pagan teacher of mine gave me a very interesting writing prompt. "Mental Illness in the Pagan Community," During that time, I was unsure how to respond to the literary challenge of writing about a sensitive topic that affects so many of us in our spiritual hamlet. It was a time when... Continue Reading →
I became addicted to you, Became high off the idea of us, Lost myself, lost the world, Slipped you inside of me, cheeking the pill, Taking you in like medication, your words were my therapy session, your actions the trigger to the broken mirror gaze, You're a drug, hallucinogenic kisses And I overdosed on your masked...

The feature image above is that of a single strand of Garnet (my birthstone) that I strung on to Grandmother Apple about 6ish years ago at Deeply Rooted. This tiny chip strand has weathered many storms and has heard many of my heart's desires over the years. It was my first offering and interaction with Grandmother... Continue Reading →
An interesting thought occurred to me the other night as I was discussing with friends how I call the elemental quarters. I realized something very profound in my musings. My math is very, very wrong. I'm not calling elemental quarters. I'm actually calling fifths. I've been doing it so long, actually, that it's hard-wired into... Continue Reading →
No expletives will be used in the making of this post, but by now many of you may find yourself using a few. The best way I can describe today’s Fool card is… I don’t bleeping care anymore. If you were exercising care and caution with regard to a particular situation for as long as you remember, something which has just occurred at the Full Moon has certainly changed your attitude as to how to handle it, possibly with kid gloves prior to this, and now you are done tiptoeing around the whole thing.
It honestly does not feel wrong to throw caution to the wind at this time, for I feel you are DONE. Period. End of story. No one could change your mind now, so if there are consequences to your actions, so be it. You are ready to move on, have the fresh start which the Fool…

About this Series Initially I came up with the idea for this series because I want my blog to be a resource for anyone interested in Paganism regardless of their skill level. Alternately, it's a resource for those just researching concepts in Paganism for school reports or their own personal interest. It's just as important... Continue Reading →

Today I share with my friends a moment. Take what you will from it. Hail Goddess Kali! Just before I committed myself to Paganism, Your name kept appearing to me. And even though I had read very little on You, I knew that I was intrigued by Your nature. So powerful, so strong and everything... Continue Reading →
Does anyone remember this commercial? I've seen this clip a dozen or so times in syndication. It's dated, a bit stereotypical but for the time period it expressed a view that was just becoming a reality for mankind. A period of life when people were beginning to open up their eyes to the destruction they... Continue Reading →
Alright, going to write this in a bit of a different format than normal for myself and since people of the public generally read this sort of thing. I'll include as much as I can and write the rest in a private diary and include a reference to what I have sketched out here. Here... Continue Reading →
Today’s Queen of Cups comes to us from artist, Ken Meyer, Jr., for 78 Tarot Astral ~ Tarot in Space. Have you noticed the huge shift in energies in the last several days? Pluto has retrograded, Mercury is retrograde in Aries, the Sun is now in Taurus, and the Taurus New Moon is just two days away. That is a great deal to navigate.
So, enter our Queen of Cups. You know, whenever I see her, it always reminds me of the Mr. Rogers’ quote that his mother told him to always “look for the helpers”. When things go wrong, and there are times of crisis, the helpers who rush in to help and provide comfort to the distressed, are the King/Queen of Cups types. It takes a special person to remain even-keeled when everyone else is running the other way. That type of emotional balance is to be admired…

Just the highlights because... Continue Reading →
