How frustrating it can be to want to honor a Goddess, but have no definite point in time in which to praise Her and praise Her fully. For many neo-pagans, festivals rely primarily on the Wheel Of The Year. For those who follow and honor Hestia...things get a little tricky. As I've written of before, there … Continue reading Honoring Hestia: A Festival Every Day
I am absolutely in love with incense, but it can be difficult to find quality incense that doesn't smell like a perfume factory; therefore, I actually prefer to make my own loose herbal incense. My daily incense blend for Hestia can be found here, but there are times I use other blends for other purposes. … Continue reading Prayer Incense
I have to say I have been working on this post for sometime now and kept going over it again and again, trying to keep it short and to the point. This post is dedicated for new Witches that are not sure where or how to begin.
I get a lot of questions about where to begin, what do I do, how do I do it? what do I read, who do I talk too? How do I know if its right, wrong, real and genuine. Here is my answer…..
One thing I was taught from childhood from my grandmother was this…. Everyone Witches path is different, what you are meant to learn you will be taught, and the lessen will present itself to you. Its important not to force yourself to learn and accept something that does not resonate or make sense to you. After all, you are the…

I need to get back to my nightly rituals. Much thanks to Witch and Walnut for the spark!
We all understand the importance of a good nights sleep and what happens to our state of mind when that doesn’t happen. Sleep is one of the times that we are most susceptible to influences from outsiders looking to manifest pretty much whatever they want.
Its possible that you can be having these influences directed towards you throughout the day, but the manifestation happens when you let your guard down, when you are asleep. We want to avoid as best as we can any type of attack during sleep, which can manifest throughout the night as nightmares, restlessness, seeing things that are not there, energy draining, feelings of dread and fear. Then continue to further manifest throughout your day…
Creating habits for your night rituals can help keep the unwanted attacks on the side lines. I’m not talking about heavy duty rituals that require extensive time, this is just basic…

"You can’t always get what you want….. "You get what you need...." Screw you, Mick Jagger. Or not. I’m sitting here, sick to my stomach in a pit of depression and I need to snap out of it. Last week, for the thousandth time-- for the final time -- we ran the numbers and looked … Continue reading You Can’t Always Get What You Want
I am always quite cautious when I do spellwork. I rarely do it for myself (though I really should be a little more selfish in that way). But what do you do when things go wrong and you wish to reverse your spell? Here's some good advice on how to do it (but...the smartest thing … Continue reading How To Reverse A Spell When Everything Goes Wrong
I’ve been wanting to write a post about this topic but haven’t found the right words. I still haven’t found the right words, but I was prompted by a conversation I had last night with a friend about this topic.
Staying true and authentic to your craft can be a struggle at times for various reasons. There are so many ways to practice the craft and no two ways are alike. Doesn’t make them wrong, just different from one another.
Everything you have learned on your own through countless hours, months and years of research took discipline. It got you where you are and that means something to you. You followed through for a reason, or you wouldn’t have stuck with it.
Whether you have been taught the craft from an elder or self taught, sometimes you start to get pulled in other directions. These can bring about some uncomfortable…

It's not unusual to be approached for money spells, but just remember...like the wishes in W. W. Jacob's short story "The Monkey's Paw", wishes (spells) have direct actions. When crafting spells, always be conscious that what you create will have action elsewhere (sometimes for bad....sometimes for good). I'm a huge fan of making my own … Continue reading Money Candle Spell (gift to a friend)
Always good information from Witch and Walnut!
Beautiful and often forgotten celery root has been used for a very long time in our craft, most commonly used for mind control.
This is my go-to for any work related to serious mind manipulation. The size, color, shape and appearance has common physical parallels to an actual brain. This is why we love to use it. Whether it is for love, to influence thoughts and dreams, sooth a racing and worried mind, confusion, commanding, controlling and exposure.
This is an excellent way of exposing liars, gossipers and traitors by placing a spear right into it and stake it out in your garden. Or you can stake it out in their garden if you are brave enough. This is symbolic as well, much like the medieval times when heads where place on a stake along properties as a warning and sign that traitors will be exposed and punished.

As a small handful of you know, I’ve decided to resurrect a ancient blog if mine. It totally needs an overhaul because it was my “baby blog”, so I’m in the middle of that. However, I came across a post from way way back that had me laughing all over again.
I give you….Adventures in my household….
There’s never a dull moment in my household. Really.
Just yesterday I spent some quality time with my husband. This never happens. Ever. His work schedule is so jam packed that he does work 60 hours a week…on a “light” week. So when we actually had a Sunday to spend together, I jumped on it.
We didn’t do much – took a drive on some of the lesser-known highways to see the countryside of TX – since we hadn’t had an opportunity to do that. We took the fluffy Tribble dog with us because he loves to travel. We wandered down towards Bastrop, TX and saw some beautiful ranch country.
On the way back, we decided to make a fire in the fire pit when we got him. Nothing thrilling, right? Grab some hot dogs, stuff to make S’mores…and firewood, since we hadn’t had the opportunity to put aside firewood…
