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 […]

Forsaken by the Gods?

I ran across an interesting discussion in the online world today. Specifically on what the gods might or should owe to us humans. Which is…well, quite fascinating a thought for me, given how I work with my gods. I’m not sure how I feel about the whole idea that gods “owe” humans anything…but that’s what […]

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 […]

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 […]

Oh My Gods!

I recently just rediscovered my favorite webcomic: Oh My Gods! by Shivian. I posted the link below to check out the whole strip, and also as source for the image, because it’s the absolute best! (Okay, to be fair, this is my favorite comic regardless of web or print) I had really kind of totally […]

Familiar Spirit vs. Pet

Onwards today with one of my major peeves. What’s something everyone associates with witches? (and therefore anyone who is remotely “witchy”) Well, usually a black cat, a rabbit, or something like a toad. Or at least, that’s what I always remember hearing about. It’s a bit cliché, to be honest–those are the stereotypes. What is […]

Chosen or Decided?

Just what goes into figuring out what pantheon to follow, what gods to worship, what spirits to work with? That’s something that everyone comes to differently, and I’m no fan of claiming any one method is better than the others. Each method has benefits and drawbacks, and each person has to do what works for […]
