Wheel of the Year

And nope, I don’t mean that in the standard form of the “Wheel of the Year” with the 8 high days (Beltane, Mabon, Lughnasad, Samhain, etc etc). Because that’s just always felt weird & arbitrary to me. I don’t follow the “holidays” that everyone goes on about. They just don’t suit me. And I don’t […]

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.

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

Leap of Faith

Welcome to Post 501 on the blog! Sometimes you just take a “leap of faith” and go ahead and do something. That’s something I usually struggle with, because I’m overly cautious to a fault. Like, severely cautious. Which means that I’m quite often thinking things over far more than actually acting on them. It’s kind […]

Pillows & Comfort

You know how there’s always that one person who has like…15 pillows on their bed? And how it looks like 1/2 the bed is taken up by pillows when you look at it? That’s what this is, to look at my photo there. I certainly never wanted to be that person. Because it seems so […]
