Children: 5 (Four girls and a boy) Grandchildren: 5 (Four boys and a girl) Two ancient pine trees watch the path to the clearing where the next full moon will bring ritual and celebration.

    Gems of the Goddess

    Epona:  Goddess of Horses, Fertility and Abundance If you’re looking for a goddess that represents strength, femininity and fertility, look no further than Epona.  Epona is the Celtic Goddess of horses, donkey and mules and was called upon often to protect Calvary in Rome.   Born of a man and mare, she can take equine or human form. She is known as the protector of horses, horse owners and stables.   There is evidence that Epona was painted on the side of barns and stables as protection to the horses and their riders.  She was most represented in Gaul but her influence is known across Europe, included being adapted by the Romans…

    The Indigo Child

    What is an Indigo Child? It has been said that Indigo children display innovative and bizarre psychological attributes, which up until a relatively short time ago had not been documented. Many skeptics suggest that the indigo child is nothing more than a child suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or some other type of mental disability but that could not be further than the truth. While yes some indigo children may well be diagnosed with ADHD the truth of the matter is that these children are just old souls striving to bring the world into the next level of human evolution. A majority of the indigo children posses what…

    Elemental Perspectives

    Are They Friendly Spirits, Rocky? This is the fifth and last article in my Elementals Perspectives series for PaganPages.  The classical Elements of the ancients – Air, Fire, Water, and Earth – have served for ages as a model by which an ordered sense of the universe can be formulated.  This model has been used by magicians, philosophers, and scientists.  It is quite likely the seed of our modern sciences because it presents the notion that the world around us can be understood through observation of its parts and how they relate to one another.  But the four Elements, like all classification systems, have never covered everything in the universe. …

    Cauldron Spirits

    Cauldron Spirits are an alcohol based mixture that burn in your cauldron or any other fire safe container. Be wise with this, as you would anything else you were going to burn. Keep it away from all flammable objects, keep it away from children, and please burn in a well ventilated area. Do not ingest this ever! If you do by mistake please call your doctor immediately. Prepare them at the moon time that suits your working purpose and when finished, store them in a cool, dry cupboard. Of course there are many combinations of herbs that can be used to suit the needs that I am going to address…

    Greetings from Afar

    Chariots of Fire The UFO wave of 1972-73 was the last “classical” UFO wave to sweep North America… at least the United States. It began in the fall of 1972, as a group of isolated, but seemingly consistent sightings in the Southwestern and Southeastern parts of the country, and eventually turned into a nationwide phenomenon. Now, many people will attribute these sightings to “natural” occurrences, and the U.S. Government certainly has ample “explanations” for each and every sighting, from “atmospherics” to “weather balloons” to “planetary alignments”… still… I know what I saw, and it wasn’t a weather balloon. It was the second Friday in November, 1972, and the Center (Texas)…

    The Wild Hunt

    The oldest stories forgotten blood-stained tales told to young children of old gods born in new fantasies . . . A curtain of snow opens, cold, blue gloom lurks on frozen wastelands where starving men ride horses following baying dogs chases the prey dodging snowdrifts beneath snow-laden branches, evergreens shaking, spilling needles of ice on panting deer, streaming blood pounding adrenaline racing men hunting the old Stag King, a god who knows how to die with dogs flying at hooves stamping powdered ice beating hearts rushing blood dragging deer fallen on it’s side, steaming and panting as snow stains red with warm blood gurgling life flowing out until dead eyes…
