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 […]

An Interesting Reiki Session

An Interesting Reiki Session

Last evening I performed a modified Reiki session on my husband, Jerry. He was experiencing some neck pain while we were outside looking at the night sky for craft anomalies. We do that most nights and we’ve occasionally witnessed some sights we can’t explain which is cool. Last night, however, Jerry’s right hand began cramping […]

A Magickal Legacy Of Love And Light

A Magickal Legacy Of Love And Light

We lost a brother the other day. Raymond Buckland passed through the veil leaving a magickal legacy that witches, Wiccan or not, will embrace for years to come. His was a life well-lived and I confess to owning a couple of his books, Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft as well as Wicca For One: The Path of […]

The Fool At The Helm

The Fool At The Helm

It’s tough being duped, isn’t it? We’ve become a social media nation and now it’s becoming clear that Russia bought ads on Facebook targeting certain voters with ads supporting Trump, Stein, and Sanders. Fake news is just another name for lies and fraud. The easy answer is to blame the media for all of it, […]

Letting Go Of Old Patterns

Letting Go Of Old Patterns

I love the use of black of the Wild Unknown Tarot deck. The artist appears to balance the unknown aspect of Tarot with scenes that stand out drawing the eye to each card’s message. Sometimes I begin with a spread in mind, but normally I lay out cards in whatever pattern that emerges. I like […]

Dear Donald: Now It's The NFL? #TakeAKnee

Dear Donald: Now It’s The NFL? #TakeAKnee

You know, I’m really trying not to write on Sundays unless it’s to work on one of the books I’m currently writing. But then you have to go off on the NFL so here we are again. Donald, we have a First Amendment right in this country to say what we want. If NFL players […]

Allowing And The Conflict Within

Allowing And The Conflict Within

At first blush, today’s tarot cards suggest the balance between authority and compassion or maybe something to do with polarity but there seemed to be more to look at so I added three more cards to give some additional clarity. And now, instead of two cards from the Major Arcana, I have four to contend […]

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 […]
