Beginnings And Endings: Observing The Autumn Equinox

Beginnings And Endings: Observing The Autumn Equinox

The Autumn Equinox is upon us. Also known as Mabon, this is my favorite time of year. It occurs just as we move from Virgo to Libra when light and dark are equal in length. Witch history is an interesting bailiwick because although we make every attempt to figure out who did what along with […]

Toxic People

Toxic people are such a challenge. They get things wrong and yet they proceed anyway. Instead of stopping to understand why things aren’t working out for them, they press on with their own toxic agenda. They become angry with everyone else involved when no one supports them, but they continue nevertheless. It never occurs to […]

In Joyful Presence With All

In Joyful Presence With All

Wunjo, Ehwaz, and Othala comprise today’s runecasting. Elemental influences are Earth and Water; absent are Fire and Air. Overall, the numerology is six or the sacred layer of Self, governing our emotions, communication, harmony, and balance. I crafted the runes I’m using from a black locust branch from a tree in my backyard. I craft most […]

Moderation, Respite, and Inner Awakening

Moderation, Respite, and Inner Awakening

I prefer the Universal Waite deck to the traditional Rider-Waite because the scenes are more clear. I haven’t used it in a while so I thought I’d bring it out for today’s reading. I wanted to look at influences of both Spirit and form, so I chose a six card spread with three cards above […]

Polarity In Balance

Polarity In Balance

Balanced polarity is the theme of today’s tarot reading. One card from the Major Arcana along with two Court cards, one from the suit of Pentacles and the other from Swords surround a card from the suit of Cups. Earth, Air, and Water are represented with Fire absent from the reading. The overall numerology is 1 […]

Women Will Never Shut Up Again

Women Will Never Shut Up Again

The downside of shitting all over Hillary Clinton for writing a book about the presidential campaign is that it will serve as a rallying cry for women of a certain age who have experienced enough misogyny over our lifetime. We watched in horror as the most qualified person to run for the highest office in […]

It’s Over. You’re Done.

It’s hard I guess for you to grow up. To continue to act like a child when you don’t get your way. To be so full of yourself that you don’t realize the trail of evidence you leave behind, thus sealing your fate. To let anger drive you on into more and more inappropriate behavior. […]

Dear Donald: Oregon Is Burning. Why Won't You Help Us?

Dear Donald: Oregon Is Burning. Why Won’t You Help Us?

The smoke was so thick last night, Donald, that my husband and I decided to shut off the irrigation water to avoid taking on further smoke. Jerry needed a reprieve from all the smoke he breathed in during the day. He’s painting the new cover over the pipe and well site. We belong to a […]

Celtic Cross: Balancing Emotions with Intellect

Celtic Cross: Balancing Emotions with Intellect

Ten cards typically comprise the Celtic Cross. However, a modified spread also exists that includes a separate significator card, and that’s spread I’ll use today. There are varied interpretations associated with each card in a Celtic Cross spread but the interpretations found in the Druid Craft tarot resonate the most. The Queen of Swords is […]

All We Needed Was More Paint

All We Needed Was More Paint

Why do I ever leave the house? We needed more paint for the cover over the new well and the pipe from it to the cistern so we headed to the local home improvement stores in the area where we bought the first gallon. My husband is the system operator for our community well and […]
