    Book of Shadows: As the Wheel Turns

    May – Blessed Beltane Blessed Beltane! May your fields be well watered, may you never thirst, and may you never hunger. This time of year, makes me happy as I watch everything coming from the earth in full bloom while love and kindness are awakening from the long winter scowls and slowly turning into deliberate smiles. We are all warming up! Finally. And, along with the warmth returning, the Green Man emerges. The King Stag comes in search of the Maiden. The need fires burn and the flames of passion are fanned. It’s time to sow the seeds we have carefully nurtured during the dark days from Samhain to Yule…

    Finding Your Own Way

    Chapter 11 Finding Joy Only the most unfortunate among us will not have at least one memory of feeling safe and protected. The very fact that we have survived to this stage in our lives and we are reading this, assures us that we were kept warm, and fed at those times in our lives when we were at our most vulnerable. All of us can fall into the pit of despair, where we feel unloved and unwanted. Use this meditation as a reminder that we have known love and protection and that it is still around us. We carry it in, sometimes forgotten, memories. They may be buried deep…

    Book Review – The Modern Witchcraft Spell Book: Your Complete Guide to Crafting and Casting Spells by Skye Alexander

    Book Review The Modern Witchcraft Spell Book Your Complete Guide to Crafting and Casting Spells by Skye Alexander Published by Adams Media Pages: 301 This first part of this book covers the basics needed to prepare a novice for working the spells in the second part. Skye Alexander starts out by explaining that a spell “is something you do with clarity, intent, and awareness to generate a result. A spell consists of a set of thoughts and symbolic actions performed in the physical world to initiate change on a higher level. Once a change takes place at that higher level, it filters down and materializes here on earth.” “Spellcasting,” she…

    Book Review – Angels, Spirit Guides and Goddesses by Susan Gregg

    Book ReviewAngels, Spirit Guides and Goddesses by Susan GreggQuarto Publishing Ms. Gregg’s book contains 100 different Divine Beings that can be called up for various situations. I love the art work for each being. There are four sub headers in this book: Archangels and Angels; Saints; Ascended Masters and Master Teachers; and Goddesses and Deities. I think that the way Ms. Gregg has laid the book out is very intuitive. Each page begins with the name of the Divine Being, then if applicable she writes where it comes from (i.e. religion, culture), then the author states in what ways the being will help you. Then Ms. Gregg gives an Invocation,…

    Crone’s Corner

    Meditation and Divining Incense: uses & recipes I used to shy away from sharing my personal experiences and practices with other people, but then I asked myself, “Why do you keep everything that you love all to yourself?” That’s when I decided to open a Facebook Group called “Pagan Plannertarium” and I started sharing my love of a working book of shadows and graphics that I create to make my working book everything that I want it to be. It is a work in progress and you can follow along with me in the other article under “crafts” Working Book of Shadows in PaganPagesOrg. My group eventually morphed into what…

    Celebrating the Old Ways in New Times

    May 2019 for Celebrating the Old Ways in New Times Bright Blessings I write this with a sore back from beginning the garden. I have planted seeds for snow peas, radishes, milkweed, and sunflowers so far, and a few packs of annuals as well. I nabbed more seeds, ordered three more seed catalogs, and got a couple of hot pink pots! Not bad for the first week of gardening. This year, I am doing the unthinkable! I am killing a mint plant! I’m doing it so I can pull a shrub behind it and use the space for more, well…PLANTS! The roots of the mint would take over the space…

    Book Review The Witch’s Guide to Wands A Complete Botanical, Magical, and Elemental Guide to Making, Choosing, and Using the Right Wand by Gypsey Elaine Teague Published by Weiser Books Pages: 243 “The Witch’s Guide to Wands” is the reference book Gypsey Elaine Teague had been trying to find – one that explained the properties of the woods and metals from which wands are made. “You would not use a holly wand for a new moon ritual any more than you would use an ebony one for a full moon. If you want strength, then you would use oak and reserve the willow for resilience and survival spells,” Teague writes,…
