Somewhere, over Lughanasadh (Way up High….)

So as I was standing in the middle of a redwood grove, in the middle of 80 cheering celebrants, wearing a bright green corduroy jacket with gold lamé trim, tights, a cutlass and a top hat – right as I was about to kiss my High Priestess, who was wearing a red Renaissance era ball gown, and who was a man named Skot, my mind decided that was the moment to consider the question: What in the HELL was I doing?

AskAngus16: Tardy, Sticky Ghosts

Bending the fourth dimension to fashion an artificially long day will only create a well along the time space continuum, and in no time (ha – sorry) a starship from some Star Trek spin-off series will appear in orbit. [Read more…]

AskAngus15: Hipster Hoarders

Some folks end up with these Teetering Towers of Doom altars – sky-high parfaits of leaves, trinkets, feathers, pictures, rocks, melted wax, shells, knives, unopened mail, dust, calcified corn dollies, unidentified compost filler, ribbons from Pantheacon and a broken pestle with a missing mortar.

Sadie: Can I use magick to influence the basketball playoffs? Dear Sadie, No. Aside from the monumental technical job involved, there is that pesky Rule of 3 / Freewill thing to consider. Plus Basketball players are too smart and independent. Try Hockey. [Read more…]

AskAngus11: Boston Marathon Bombing

The Darkness that we witches utilize is merely the cream off the top of the Can O’ Dark. The idiots who pulled off the Boston marathon bombing had been supping on the dregs from the bottom of the can, as well as getting high off of the fumes. [Read more…]

AskAngus10: Specifically, who is this “Flora”? Have you read her book?

The physical beauty of the pagans is just the outer layer of being more at home in our own skins. Anyone sober will tell you that Knowledge and Confidence are two of the most attractive qualities in any person. [Read more…]
