Happy Samhain….

A Witch's Sacred Journey

Happy Halloween! Happy Samhain!

Finally, the veils have opened and the way is clear to seek the lessons of this season and explore the deeper mysteries of death. I have several options for your work today:

Videos:1. Samhain Ritual performed on Oct. 28th. This ritual used the energies of a Waxing Moon towards today’s Full Blue Moon of astrological Taurus. We coalesced the energies of the Retrograde Planets of Mercury, Mars, Neptune and Pluto. Please note that on this date Mercury was retrograde at 0-degrees Scorpio. Today. with its retrograde motion Mercury stands in the astrological mantle of Libra. A fitting transition of bringing the depths that arose from Scorpio’s mysteries into the harmonious vision of balance and beauty that is Libra. (approx. 45mins)

Please have these items available for use during the ritual. What you will need:

  • 1/dark colored candle1/light colored candle
  • small cup with spring water
  • small…

A Witch's Sacred Journey

The Wisdom of the Bones

I’m a winter baby and I love the cold weather. I love the darker days. I love the longer nights snuggling under blankets and nesting in. This time of the year calls me deeper into my physicality. There is a cold that settles deep within my bones and it doesn’t matter if I turn on the heat or put on my clothes because this experience is not a physiological occurrence. This is not because of the change in weather and the fact that I have arthritis.  No, it is much deeper than that. I have come to recognize with its persistent regularity at Samhain’s tide, that this is a form of preparation…….

A Witch's Sacred Journey

Entering the Hall of Divination

Gaze into that
Which holds the key
Reflecting back the
Treasure of answer to me.

Wood and wax
Crystal and flame
The truth revealed
The heart’s desire
Thusly named.

This post is part of a series entitled Cornerstones of Magick. In this series you begin by creating your Temple of Magick and build specific Halls within that align with the disciplines of magickal practice. This seemed like an appropriate post for today’s 30-Days of Samhain. This time of the year, we return to the tools of seeking intuitive sight and wisdom from those beings and sources surrounding. And, with that intention we reach towards the tools that will awaken us to the mysteries of Divining…

You stand in the Center Hall of your Temple of the Wise, taking a moment to look around once again at the beauty of your space and the life that…

A Witch's Sacred Journey

The Ancestor’s Cauldron
A Pathworking of Communion

I would like to invite you to join me on a journey of seeking wisdom from the ancestors. The pathworking may be used anytime to deepen your connection, but it is particularly useful as a tool at Samhain and during the time between that flows into the Winter Solstice.

You will want to find a comfortable space where you will not be disturbed for approx. 20-30 minutes. I would suggest that you have a small object that belonged to or represents your beloved ancestor to hold while experiencing the pathworking. This will set up the intention of reaching out. You may also light a candle if you wish.

When you are ready, you may either read through the transcript below or click on the link to access an audio recording. Blessings on your journey…

The Call of the Crone

Today we are at mid-point in posts for 30-Days of Samhain 2020. What better way to mark that occasion than in honoring the Goddess as Crone of Wisdom. This writing is one of experience and surrender. The experience is in holding the intention of being receptive and an active participant in basking in the gifts of the Divine Feminine and the space of death and rebirth…….

The air is full and heavy this time of the year as the veils thin and the spirits walk among us… some offering guidance and assistance and others being mischievous and stirring up an already potent mix of energy trouble. There is a distinct and growing crispness to the air as the weather offers a preview of what to expect in the coming winter months, and leaves crackle underfoot reminding us that summer’s moisture…

What About These Veils?

Introductory Thoughts Specific to 2020:

Over the past several years the Veils have been thinning earlier than would normally have been. Many things have played into this shifting and in particular in this year of the COVID Pandemic, indeed the Veils have been opening steadily for some time. I cannot speak to how others sense this transition, so I will only share what I experience.

I begin to notice the thinning as the air seems to become denser and more “etherically” charged. I tend to feel it more palpably outside because there is generally more spaciousness when you are out in the open, but that density also crowds into my personal space as well. Often I will catch the glimpse of a shape or form in my peripheral vision, and when looking in that direction nothing concrete is there. This year, that density has been at…

The Witch's Year Tarot Spread

The Witch’s Year Tarot Spread

Today’s post is an excerpt from one I crafted on my blog at Pagan Square.I’ve routinely been asked to repeat it, so here we go. Enjoy….

The season is upon us and the Witch’s New Year is soon at hand. I have gotten in the habit of doing a Tarot Reading at Samhain, aligned with the Sabbats throughout that upcoming year as well as one at the start of the calendar year, aligned astrologically (sharing that nearer to Yule). 

The intention and flavor of many of the celebrations surrounding the Sabbats is one of a continued theme or thread of connection of one to the other creating a whole that can be used for magick, growth and deeper insights. Regardless of the theme you follow, that of the god and goddess, the cycles of the seasons, the flow of solar energy, or other-this tarot…

Books of the Craft

Reading quality books on the Craft and a focus of continued learning extend beyond the 30-Days of Samhain experience and 2020 feels like the time to begin adding this new feature. Look for more throughout the month….

ISBN: 978-1578636372.304pp.Weiser Books. December 2018

There is a stirring within the community of those who identify as witches as what was old has been lovingly and carefully made new again by those who stand at the gates of modern witchcraft. Besom, Stang and Sword is a guide of practice that evolved from the reweaving of Traditional Witchcraft and adding just enough of the evolved form of that practice to create something unique, new and highly relevant to our times.

The authors have done due diligence in…

New reviews….Enjoy!

The Sacred Literary

When I was asked to review these two books I thought, how timely! One of our daughters is expecting her first child in December. And, with that excitement comes the memories of my own pregnancies and the five (including twins) beautiful children that we were blessed with. I wish there had been titles like these when I was pregnant. So, I will most definitely be sharing these with my daughter.
