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 […]

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Dear Donald: You End DACA While Proclaiming Today A National Day Of Prayer?

Donald, who are you praying for today? Are you praying for your soul as you tell somewhere in the neighborhood of 800,000 DACA recipients that they have to go back home when they’re already home? They come out of the shadows after it was finally safe to do so and they have to now deal with […]

Humanitarianism Versus Passing The Collection Plate

Humanitarianism Versus Passing The Collection Plate

The rune, Dagaz, from the Elder Futhark indicates a new day arising from awakening and enlightenment. I thought I’d use its shape for today’s tarot reading. After the hurricane and the president that we currently have, we could all use a new day. But let’s see what the cards say. Sometimes I begin in one […]

In Totality With All

In Totality With All

My husband and I sat out under the willow trees to watch this morning’s solar eclipse. It began in Madras and at our home in Redmond, we were in totality at 10:20 am. I remember as a child in Alaska watching a solar eclipse at my aunt’s house. But it wasn’t like this one. This one […]

Donald, Your Allegiance Is With The Wrong People

Donald, Your Allegiance Is With The Wrong People

Hate is such a destructive emotion. And when it’s put into action, people get hurt or worse. We’ve seen you, our current president, spread the blame around after a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville turned violent and a young woman was killed. The mother of that young woman refused to take your call because of […]

Empath As Adversary

Empath As Adversary

I saw another article explaining why one should never mess with an empath. I tend not to read them anymore because I have a different take on who I am even though I understand why these articles are written. I’m turning sixty in October and I was born both a witch and an empath, so I understand the […]

Awaiting Aubrey

Awaiting Aubrey

Our first grandchild is due any moment now. We live several hours from our youngest son and daughter-in-law, but as soon as we get the word, we’re there. Nothing could keep us from meeting Aubrey. Nothing. She is already loved beyond measure and we can’t wait until she’s here! I remember wanting girls and instead, I […]
