    Tarot Talk

    CARING FOR YOUR CARDS Cleansing New decks should be cleansed before use. Many Tarot readers cleanse their cards regularly with sunlight, moonlight, or crystals. Placing your deck in the light of the full moon or bright sunlight once a month is said to cleanse the cards of any negative energies. Placing one or more crystals with your deck can accomplish the same purpose. Just don’t forget to cleanse the crystals periodically. Another method for cleaning your cards is to meditate upon the deck and envision positive energy surrounding the cards in the form of a purifying white light. Imagine the light’s radiant luminosity cleansing your cards of any negative or…

    A Sweep of Majick

    Bright Blessings to you all, I am Broom and let me start by introducing myself to you. I live in the USA in the State of Minnesota.I was born and raised in the state of Texas so some times I just feel out of whack do to seasons change here a lot later than down in the southern states of the USA. I have been a Kitchen Witch now for 16 years and just recently discovered I tend to pull to the Hedge Witch by defination. I seem to have a very weird (laughs out loud) sense of humor as I see the world around me. I use the Wiccan…

    Stone Writings

    When I visited the great and ancient stone circle of Stonehenge, I was in awe of the massive stones that have stood for at least 5000 years. To think that it was built with only stones and animal bones as tools. The image above is a painting by Belenus of the bluestones and Sarsen stones of Stonehenge from photographs he has taken. Forming Stonehenge The standing stones of Stonehenge are remarkable to visit as I was fortunate to do a few years ago. The circle of stones sits in a huge plain known as Salisbury Plain. When I walked along the plain, it was hard to imagine that it was…

    Sexual Magick

    One doesn’t have to be a witch to practice sexual magick. All that it requires is a setting, or mood; intent (prayer) and energy-raising (the act itself). Anyone can do it. It happened to a friend of mine. From the 1990s onward, he and his wife became estranged from one another due to a major rift that has become irreparable. During the 90s, he left home but returned soon afterward to try to resolve the marriage. During that time, he told me, he and his wife were intimate only a handful of times. One of those times, he prayed for a child. When the wife stopped having periods, she assumed…

    Political Magick?

    For the past winter I have sat in dispair over the political antics of our current administration wondering what can I personally do to change all this. Like the little dutch boy plugging holes in a damn more holes appear every day and we run out of fingers and toes and tongues to plug all the new holes opening and blasting our constitution, our voting rights, our environment. Peak oil and global warming with threats of food shortages on top of a pole shift makes for nightmares for the average person. Yet there isn’t much the average person can do. We work too many hours, have too many bills and…

    Pagan Theology

    Theology is for Christians I can think of nothing more controversial, personal, or sensitive to Pagans than the topic of Theology. We can talk easily of sex, magic, and many other things without raised eyebrows or controversy (well…maybe) but what we believe, why we believe it, and how we reason about it can become a very touchy subject. Perhaps its because the Theology goes to the heart of faith, to the most personal and inner places, and thus it becomes so hard to have a dialog instead of a monolog. So what better topic for a monthly column? Ok, so there are better topics. Go read the sex magic column,…

    Mystic Thoughts

    I am a horrible procrastinator, with a horrible memory! But, I still try, still forge ahead, with everything that I do.. I’d like to share with you all some places I have had the joy to eat out at. *Lone Star Antiques Tea Room. They’ve recently moved their location from the Rufe Snow/NE Loop820 area, to just north of NE Loop 820 on Denton Hwy.(where the Sutherlands used to be). I, myself, LOVE antique rooms, and the little tearooms nestled inside most of them. Their sandwiches may seem a little on the pricey side, but its well worth the trip! They’ve got this excellent fruit dip that is a tangy,…

    Morgan’s Wardrobe

    Blessed Ostara from Morgan’s Wardrobe! At long last it seems Winter is slowly but surely loosening its icy grip up here in the land of the North Star. As Wiccans, we honor the Earth and part of that is being attuned to the changes of the seasons as she wakes from her long Winter nap. This month I would like to share ways I tune into Mother Gaia and what Spring looks like through the eyes of this witch. One of the ways I tune into Mother Gaia is by watching her as well as her four-legged and winged creatures. While there are fewer visits from Winter friends at the…

    Life In Iraq

    Well. here I sit in Kuwait after a 2-week mental break back home. A “Safe-zone” they call this place, as safe as you can get for being in the Middle-East. No attacks here minus the sporadic drive-by shootings of a military bus from some disgruntled Middle-Easterner. I think of the bigger-picture. Civil war is looming on Iraq’s horizon, attacks have slowed down, or have they. They still find weapons caches, there are still daily IED attacks on our convoys if your on the road. Fortunately for me, I never leave my base; however, In Desert Moon I do have Soldiers living in isolated areas, some go on daily patrols, some…
