Merry meet! I’m Jazz and I’m a Canadian oddball. I love roller derby, kickboxing, spending time with my dog and husband & love all things art, craft and pagan! I was raised by a Roman Catholic family but discovered Buddhism, then Paganism while in elementary school and have followed the Pagan path ever since. My main deity is Gaia as she approached me in a dream and I feel a very strong connection to her. I love working with runes and absorbing knowledge and working on my never ending book of shadows. I have always been drawn to the arts & have done many crafts and randomness for as long as I can remember. I find it peaceful and it helps settle my mind. I enjoy drawing, painting, cross stitching, doll making, jewelry making and more! I hope to spread my love and passions with others and put as much positivity in the world as possible. Feel free to check out my Facebook and Instagram! Thanks for popping by and Blessed Be!

    Book Review: The Only Wiccan Spell Book You’ll Ever Need by Marian Singer & Trish MacGregor

    Book Review:  The Only Wiccan Spell Book You’ll Ever Need by Marian Singer & Trish MacGregor   First off, I found this book very informative and well written. I was quite impressed by the amount of information they fit in such a small book. I was pleasantly surprised. The book starts off with their explanation of what Wicca is. “Wicca is an ancient practice, a gentle, earth-oriented religion that seeks truth and understanding, and a way of life meant to affect inner change. Yes, it’s a framework for using magickal powers. It also involves worshipping ancient Pagan deities, and it recognizes the duality of the Divine as one force that…

    Book Review: To Suffer a Witch by Claudia Hall Christian

    To Suffer a Witch by Claudia Hall Christian   This book was written by Claudia Hall Christian. Now, I haven’t read anything by her before, but I can tell you right now that will change. I really loved this book. This is the first work of fiction that I have written a review for and I will make sure not to spoil anything. To suffer a Witch has great characters that I came to genuinely care about. It’s all about some people that were hung during the Salem witch trials in 1692. But, twenty of them came back as immortal witches. You do learn a lot of what happened to…

    Book Review: Magick for the Elemental Witch by Deanna Anderson

    Magick for the Elemental Witch by Deanna Anderson   Magick for the Elemental Witch, as a whole, was a very excellent and educational book. She covered such a vast array of topics and religions. I was very impressed. Honestly, the main downfall was there were some very obvious grammatical errors, especially once you hit the middle of the book. I would easily suggest this book to anyone wanting to expand their knowledge or if you are just starting out. Anderson talks about a great variety of things and I think anyone would be able to find something useful. She gives great personal examples and also talks about different spells. All-in-all,…

    Soaring- A Teen’s Guide to Spirit & Spirituality by Deneen Vukelic Print Length: 209 pages Publisher: Soul Rocks Books (March 27, 2015) Publication Date: March 27, 2015 Language: English This was my first time reading a teen spirituality book. As a 27 year old, I am out of the age range, so I tried to go back to when I was younger, and also tried to view this book as I would have when I was that age. I also looked at it as if I were referring it to some of my younger friends, and overall, just how I liked it. There were some aspects of the book I…

    The New Moon The Lunar cycle has eight phases- new, crescent, waxing quarter, gibbous, full, disseminating, waning quarter and balsamic. Each of the eight phases also moves through each of the 12 astrological signs, creating a total of 96 combinations. The natural cycle of birth, life, and regeneration is symbolised by the lunar cycle. The cycle continues with the moon spending about two days in each planet. The lunar phases can be made useful when planning your magickal work, plus it is always useful to have your rituals and spells coincide with the appropriate astrological influences. When working magick, if the spell if not urgent, it is best to plan…

    My Journey to Paganism Discovering Paganism wasn’t easy for me. I took several steps in my religious history to find it. I was born into a Roman Catholic family. I was baptised, as most Roman Catholic children are, and I was in an environment where I was told there was one true God, that Jesus had died for my sins, and I wasn’t really told about any other options. Sometimes we would live with my Grandma, and she was quite religious. She was a bit more ‘old school’ than most, and so she had different views than my parents or other relatives. She was much stricter and lived but an…

    A Brief Look at Uranus Uranus also goes by Ouranos. He is sometimes known as Father Heaven, or simply, The Sky. He was Gaia’s son and husband, as Gaia created Uranus to cover her all over, and to be as resting place, always secure, for all the blessed gods, and then she created hills and pontos. Gaia and Uranus had many offspring together. Uranus is the father of Cronus, the twelve Titans, the Cyclops and the Hundred Handed. Now, Uranus hated his children, and felt threatened by them as well. He worried they would overrule him, so as soon as each Titan was born, he hid it within Gaia. She…

    Consecrating Objects Anything you purchase will have been handled by other people and will have traces of their energies on it. This especially applied to anything second-hand. Second-hand items could have been used for any number of purchases, including dark magic. Anything you tend to use magically will need previous energies removed. There are a large number of ways you can consecrate and cleanse and item. Some ways will work well with certain objects and not with others. Of course there are other ways that may be more convenient for you and also, the resources you have will also play a part. You should always follow what you feel is…
