Apocalyptic Witchcraft

I am a tremendous fan of Scarlet Imprint, publisher of fine magical books. Their books contain more than occult information, more than poetry, though they are certainly full of both;¬†they are bound spells. I have read several of Scarlet Imprint's works. I don't always agree with the authors in their fervor or specifics, but I usually agree with the general themes. I almost always find myself thinking about their ideas long after I've finished a book. I'm still chewing over XVI, which I read over … [Read more...]

Collaging the year, part two: 2013

Yesterday I posted about my 2012 collage, what came to pass and what did not (click here to read that post).For 2013 I did a tarot reading. I used the Mary-El tarot. I drew the 9 of Swords, the King of Disks, the Devil reversed, the 2 of Swords reversed, the Moon, and the Hanged Man. Basically, I have yet another intense year ahead of me. (What I'd like to do is take a moment to whine about how intense and challenging everything has been for the last few years and how I'd really love it if … [Read more...]

Collaging the Year, part one: A 2012 review

Every calendrical new year I collage. You can read about last year's collage and see pictures of 2011's and 2012's here. This year it took me and Adam a week to complete our collage. Both of our kids were very interested in what we were doing. We tried to wait for the youngest's nap times. My son even managed to make his first one. He says it's a collage about Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. A born story-teller, he is.First, I want to look at my 2012 collage and see what came to … [Read more...]

Bargaining with Kali

I've been quiet lately in this space. There is a lot of intensity in my personal life right now. The last I wrote with any depth was about praying to Kali. She continues to work in my life. I continue to ask her to slay the fears that limit my spirit, and she continues to give me plenty of opportunities to face my fears. I rarely like what I see, nor do I feel all that secure. I made a promise to my partner that I would not back away, that I would press forward.Here is the image I have in my … [Read more...]

Shout outs

I would like to draw your attention to two things that I am loosely involved with and enjoy supporting.The first is an ebook, Birth on the Labyrinth Path, by my friend Sarah Whedon. She is the founder and maintainer of Pagan Families, a website with resources and articles that specifically focuses on the Pagan experience of parenting. So far the site has been written primarily from the mother's point of view, so if you're a father and want to contribute, please contact Sarah!Pagan … [Read more...]

A cute take on a timeless tradition

Today is World Tarot Day! I want to share with you something that has been absorbing my attention lately: my husband's tarot kickstarter campaign!We both love tarot, but have different tastes in the art (mostly) and we seem to use the decks differently. He is much more interested in the history and evolution of the deck and symbols than I am, whereas I use my deck/s nearly everyday.For the last year and half, Adam, the husband, has been designing his own deck, The Chibi Tarot. According … [Read more...]

New home, new altars

Last night's full moon was the kick in the pants I needed to get all my altars set up! We've got all the furniture we're getting for a while. We're Officially Moved In to our new home. I decided that I would use the full moon and all the energy from the solar flares - plus I had had a FULL NIGHT'S SLEEP (first one in over a year) - and bless all the altars.This is our family altar. In the passage between the living and dining rooms there is this curved space, where the phone box used to … [Read more...]
