Seeking the Grail: When Doing the Right Thing Doesn’t Feel Good

About a month ago I put my cat to sleep, and only in the past week have I really begun to feel like I did the right thing. If you’re not a pet owner, you probably haven’t endured this special kind of hell. I hope the afterlife brings Luna a peace that she didn’t get in her last years.

Courageous, healing, and resilient, my Mother is a force of nature. Born of her, I am a force of nature. My mother continues to teach me the meaning of that bright Mystery. On this Mother’s Day, I honor Mama Magic and the Mother Goddess manifest in my Mother, and in all Mothers. [Read more…]

The Rantin’ Raven: Old at Beltain

We just celebrated Beltain, perhaps the most “hands on” Sabbat of the year. But, what you’re too old to contemplate staying up all night, much less rolling in the grass with a lover? How do we old Witches keep the Beltain when–as the saying goes–the spirit is willing but the flesh isn’t? [Read more…]
