Magickal Month-February

February is the last bit of cold before the Spring comes, and we’re naturally beginning to think about the growth season ahead. We’re feeling the stirrings of activity as the days are getting longer and sunnier, though there’s still a strong chance of Winter weather. We can’t help but get excited when the snow drops,…

Magickal Month- February

The name February came from the Latin Februum, meaning purification. The festival named Februa was the festival of purification that was celebrated on February 15th. Purification is an interesting theme for this month, as we’ve been stuck inside all winter. The air is stale, our moods are stale, and it’s time to get some fresh…

Tarot- January 31st, 2015

This week’s draw is from my very first deck, the Sacred Rose Tarot.  My father bought it for me when I was 12 at the Sphynx bookstore in Atlanta.  (Does anyone else remember the Sphynx?)  He kept asking me if I was SURE that I wanted these for my birthday, and I kept insisting that…

The Witches Reel

How fibro feels.

I try not to bitch and whine too much about health stuff here.  Honestly, nobody really wants to know that much detail about the pain that others go through, and who can blame them?  Life is filled with pain and health trouble, so why dwell on it? But here’s the thing.  I tell people that…

Imbolc, Pando, and the Korean sauna

I haven’t been very active here or anywhere else lately.  You see, January is very tough for me.  In addition to the usual seasonal depression that I think we all feel around this time of year, I have a lot of birthday issues/family issues/bad memories from Januaries past that pretty much put me in a…
