My journey to ordination began few years ago, and was made official recently. I took the seven days before the actual ordination day on Imbolc to honor Brigid, who asked that I be ordained in her name, and it was filled with many moments of connection, honor and fulfillment. Read more

Imbolc is a special time of year. The faint whisper of Spring is in the air, and a celebration to honor the goddess Brigid (Brighid, Bride, Brigit) is soon to arrive at the first of February.

When faced with a decision, do you listen to your deities or assert your free will? Do you sometimes want to take the easy way out? Wonder why the deities want you to do this certain thing when it’s so darn unpleasant? Do you have the endless why?, followed by resignation, followed by doing what they ask, all the while grumbling with more why?! Recently, I was at a crossroads, and amazing things happened when I listened to my deities. Read more

When an article is shared widely that doesn’t respect witchcraft or Paganism, the inevitable backlash rolls across my social media feed like clockwork. Yet we are also judgmental within Paganism with fellow practitioners, so what is the answer? Read more

The liminal space is defined as the space between “what was” and “what’s next”. To me, no better time period personifies this than the space between Christmas/Yule/All the Holidays and the New Year. The celebrations have been celebrated, food has been eaten into infinity, and the merriment is wearing a bit thin. Use this liminal space before the new year to work some magic for the coming year. Read more

As the month of December is also filled with the hectic energy of the season, people are everywhere, and by the time you get to the Winter Solstice ritual, being around more people may not be high on the list of favorite activities. It’s the time of year to hibernate, to hide under the covers, and not deal with people, right? Then the magic of community happens, engaging your senses and your heart. Wait for it, and then savor the feeling in the days ahead. Read more

December comes with a certain amount of dread for some of us. I know the month will be filled with my anxiety in overdrive, and there will be too much to do, with too little time to do it all. I know that when I go out to run errands, people will be cranky, rude and have little concept of personal space. I know all this, yet I resist the urge to run away and hide in the tropics for those four weeks. How to survive? I planned ahead this year, with a few things that have been beneficial, as we head into Yule. Read more

This time of year can take on a frenetic energy that can wear the most positive among us down to a weary sigh of humanity. We all know the drill: everyone is frantic, people everywhere urge us to be jolly, conversations revolve around presents, the endless lists of things to do, and parties. When all we want to do is stay under the covers and await January. There is another way: take it back to the basics. Read more

One of the many things I love about the Wheel of the Year is the onward turning through celebrations and observances., as we wind our way through the twelve months. It grounds and centers me, attaches me to the rhythm of the seasons, turning my focus inward. And so it is with Yule, also known as the Winter Solstice, one of the oldest winter celebrations in the world. Take this season to turn inward, truly celebrate, and enjoy. Read more
