    Gems of the Goddess

    Rhiannon The Welsh Queen Her name was sung by the honey voiced Stevie Nicks in the song Rhiannon, back in the 1970’s, gaining her the attention she very much deserves.  Rhiannon is defiantly a warrior goddess in her own right, as well as a soft whimsical soul.  Her name means “divine queen” of the fairies, and she was often seen riding her horses in the flower fields among her fairy kingdom.  She sang to the birds, and anyone else who would happen to walk by.  The goddess had many gifts, with which she shared with many people. Her life wasn’t all roses and fairy dust.  Her family arranged for her…

    The Pagan Yoga Connection I am currently working on getting my yoga teacher certificate, so it is only fitting to write this month’s column about yoga. I guess you could say I got yoga on the brain. The longer I do yoga the more Pagan connections I see in it and the more I believe that yoga is the perfect practice for Pagans and witches. The eight limbs of yoga can easily be applied to our craft practice. In fact, most of them are already used regularly by witches and they just might not know it. Here’s what I mean: Yoga Limb #1: Yama(s)-One’s ethical standards and how we treat…

    Journey of a Witch

    Sea To Shining Sea “Treat the Earth well, It was not given to you by your parents, It was loaned to you by your children.” Indian Proverb We all want to do better for the earth. Many of us recycle, reuse, and cut down on traveling when we can. We celebrate Earth Day with festivals and have feel good talks on how we are making changes for the better. Hey, we’re doing so much better now, aren’t we? And yet… Mother Earth is speaking. We seem to not hear her in the hum of the city. In the hum of the technology that surrounds us. The hum is loud and…

    Greetings from Afar

    I’ll Never Leave You, Mama It was a warm and sunny day in late spring, and the two little boys had been out, like most of the local children, playing in the forest, and picking berries… a common enough passtime for a pair of six years olds in a sleepy little Russian village. It was 1962… a tense year for the world as a whole, but not so tense for the inhabitants of Stoyietal, which, having been bypassed by the recently constructed M-8 Motorway, was a lethargic place, with most of the local “community” life centered around the usual Russian activites of work, school, The Party and The Church. The…

Set aside fertility correspondences until the moon is high, then spread your favorite seeds into the air and into the ground. Wild flowers will spring up everywhere soon and your this action-spell for conception or fertility will be answered. Revel in the splendor of the Goddess as she wakens the trees, sleeping daffodils and makes your herb garden potent. Give roots to what you need growing in your life. A new relationship, riches or insight?…

    Paranormal Path

    Imaginary Friend? There is a theory, occasionally a controversial theory, that the paranormal, ghosts, entities, etc, are best seen by children and animals.  Why is this? Children and animals are very “pure”.  Most do not know what a ghost really is. The best way I can explain this is to imagine a filter in our brains that will tell us what is “rational” and what we see is reality and what we do not see or cannot make sense of therefore cannot exist.  The words “There is no such thing” are rarely spoken unless a reason is brought to our attention.  The older we get the more that filter develops…

    For the History Keepers

    you, who sing the histories, who hold the memories, the hearts and souls lift up your voices round the fire and bless the ones who went before. sing to the gods of battles fought, and won, praise well the heroes – all who lived and kept their honour with the Ones who guarded well their souls. lift to the gods the ones who stayed behind, those who held the home-place safe from harm. honour the children, new-woven in the thread of life which ties us all to those who lived so many lives before. and honour well the ones who love the gods today, keeping them, claimed, within their hearts…
