What Even is Retrograde?

I’m admittedly a bit of a failure of a witch (okay, I really only dabble in it at that) at figuring out astrological markings and just why moon phases, planetary alignments, gemstone correspondences and the like all have meaning. Admittedly, probably if I’d done more research on “witchcraft” and less on mythology and focused more […]

Heat Wave

Yesterday I talked about superstitions. There are some superstitions in Eastern Europe about Lady Midday (Polednice or Poludnica). She’s a pretty, younger-looking spirit or noon demon that comes along at noon time around people working in the fields who causes heat stroke or madness. So what happens: she stops workers and asks them a question, […]

Lucky Charms

Lately (in case it hasn’t been obvious), I’ve been struggling a bit for writing inspiration. So, that’s why the lack of topics. It’s been a bit personally frustrating, but sometimes it happens.

Ultra-competitive culture and society pushes for a lot of fighting to come out in front of everyone else. That’s the general way […]

Centering on Self

Sometimes life hits you really hard, and then you realize you’re pushing too hard and need to take a break. That’s what happened to me over the last 2 weeks. It’s been hellaciously stressful at work, and that paired with just general pushing myself too far (which is pretty common for me) led to a […]

Words as Prayer

I’ve been surfing the interwebs on Facebook the last few weeks, and there’s a weird uptick in a particular topic. Or maybe it isn’t so weird, but I’ve just begun noticing it? It could be either, I’m not too sure. Regardless, I’ve been seeing a lot of this on pagan-flavored Facebook groups, and on Tumblr […]
