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 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 […]

Transformation and Renewal

Transformation and Renewal~ Tarot for 1 Feb 2017

On this snowy Imbolc I chose the DruidCraft tarot deck for today’s reading on transformation and renewal. I like to observe most of the Sabbats but mainly I’m more of an Esbat observing witch.

Awakening of Self ~ Tarot for 22 Dec 2016

From the Haindl deck, it’s another in a varied expression of this suit, Pentacles, Coins, Disks among its other names. A generally positive […]

The Crone: Transformational Power Within

You don’t look like a Crone, a friend on social media said. I smiled, knowing he missed the point entirely. As the Goddess has three aspects, so does a woman. We begin as a Maiden, emerging into the Mother phase either in our early twenties or when we have a child if sooner. When a […]

Transformation in Letting Go ~ Tarot for Wednesday, 2 November 2016

Death, The World, and the King of Cups make up today’s three-card spread from my Morgan-Greer tarot deck. I love this deck. My favorite is Thoth, but this one is so colorful and evokes such emotion in me. No cards from the Minor Arcana other than the single Court card are present, with Cups the […]
