We're Better Than This ~ Humanitarianism In The Time Of Trump

We’re Better Than This ~ Humanitarianism In The Time Of Trump

So much for humanitarianism. I woke up in time to watch the last half hour of Joy Reid’s show on MSNBC this morning only to hear from Rep. Luis Gutierrez that the situation is worsening in Puerto Rico while the White House believes their response has been a 10 out of 10. Instead of waking […]

Creating A Healing Bindrune

Creating A Healing Bindrune

I use a specific process when creating bindrunes. I could select them intentionally, but I prefer to let the runes decide the bindrune which is what I did today. I wanted the focus of the bindrune to be on healing. Many have been through so much lately with the recent hurricanes and senseless violence that […]

Witch Notes: October 13th ~ A Day Of Reckoning

Witch Notes: October 13th ~ A Day Of Reckoning

I turn sixty today. I plan to observe it by joining with other women who are boycotting Twitter today protesting the suspension of Rose McGowan and other issues experienced by women on that site. So, I’ll wait to post this after midnight on Twitter in solidarity with the sisterhood. Social media is an interesting place. […]

Catalyzing The Divine Feminine

Catalyzing The Divine Feminine

I like to cast runes during Esbat rituals. Whether it’s the Dark Moon or when she’s Full, Esbat rituals offer an opportunity for a variety of magickal workings as well as divinations. I performed this runecasting during Thursday’s Full Blood Moon and drew Thurisaz, Mannaz, and Berkano to see what would be influencing in the coming month. […]

The Seven Hermetic Principles Of The Kybalion

The Seven Hermetic Principles Of The Kybalion

The Kybalion was written by the Three Initiates and is a discussion of seven Hermetic principles attributed to Hermes Trismegistus who some believe was actually Thoth. Over the years, I’ve studied various channeled texts including A Course in Miracles, Seth, and the Law of One along with The Book of Enoch, The Emerald Tablets as well as ancient grimoires in an […]

Witch Notes: Tragedy Requires Compassion Edition

Witch Notes: Tragedy Requires Compassion Edition

After the recent hurricanes and the mass shooting in Las Vegas, it’s hard to imagine that things can get any worse in this country. But then Donald tweets or does a photo op and then reality smacks us all in the face again. He’s unbelievable. He’s allowed to run amok while others behind the scenes […]

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 […]

As Wildfire Smoke Hangs Heavily About, I Created An Herbal Infusion So That I Can Breathe

As Wildfire Smoke Hangs Heavily About, I Created An Herbal Infusion So That I Can Breathe

Oregon is still burning and the smoke was so thick this morning when I was outside watering that I frantically ran around gathering what I could from the yard to take back in the house for this morning’s tea. Given the dense smoke I was experiencing I gathered as many respiratory herbs I could find […]

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 […]
