We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience

What is wrong with people?

Back during the Gulf War, Saddam Hussein had created a terror military group of cold blood killers named "The Fedayeen" (which literally means "those who sacrifice themselves"). One weird thing about them is that they had to fight and kill big dogs in their training... (sick? very!)

If you are able to torture and painfully kill an animal you are prepared and quite able to do the same thing to humans. Violence against animals is a first step for later violence against people. That's why for our own good we should and do prohibit all such acts of violence.

To my great disappointment, I've heard from my coauthor Lady Caer Morganna that a horrible attempt to torture and kill a poor harmless house cat had occurred in her city. The details are chilling. The poor cat was doused with gasoline and thrown in a trash bag. The bastards were trying to burn the cat alive but they either suddenly became afraid that they will be seen and quickly got rid of the cat or where interrupted and were unable to finish what they wanted to accomplish! ... Crazy cultists attempting animal sacrifice? Simply sadists? We'll know IF and when they ever get arrested.

This is "Miracle Maisie" as she has been named. She was rescued by a trash man who found her and made sure she got medical attention immediately! The Humane Society of Berks County is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and, shortly after hearing about this horrible atrocity, PETA added another $5,000 more to the reward amount.

Thankfully, after receiving much needed medical attention, Maisie is at present recovering with the loving care of her foster family and the Humane Society of Berks County, PA.

Pink Full Moon tonight!

The Pink Moon would perhaps be more accurately be named the "Tiny Moon," as it's the smallest full moon of the year. Oh, and it's not pink. Rather, the Pink Moon's name is a signifier of spring: The nickname comes from a plant called moss pink or wild ground phlox — one of the first spring flowers.

Do you believe in "Divine Intervention"?

One description of divine intervention is a direct and obvious intervention by a deity in the affairs of a human. As deep as this subject is, I never really gave it a whole lot of thought until two weekends ago when my sister Aurora Skye and I had our readings done at one of our local wiccan shops called Celtic Myth and Moonlight. I had a tarot reading done. I was asked to pick four cards from the deck, which was a bit different from the usual Celtic spread in which you use 10 cards for the reading. The reading was spot on and one of the things in which I was told was that I have the strength to see my way through my darkness which I am and have been going through for quite a few years now. Without getting into any details, I will just say that I was told that if I need to, I should consult someone further if that is what it takes. I must add that the tarot reader had no prior knowledge of or about me nor had I offered him any information at any time before, during or after my reading.

So, last week I had decided to have a spiritual reading done by an experienced local physic named Erica who has her business right up the street from where I work. The first thing she noticed was the locket I was wearing around my neck with Midnight's picture in it. She said, "That cat! This cat is all around you all of the time and the bond between the two of you was very strong!" Even after my spiritual reading she kept commenting about "That cat, that cat." lol

At any rate, she asked me to I sit down and she began my reading. I can not divulge much of what was said at this time, but I have to say that I was astounded by how much this woman knew about my life in detail! Things she could have never known about my family, my in-laws, my job and most of all my love life! All of which have contributed to my state of "darkness." Anyway, to make a long story short, I have been seeing her for a few chakra sessions in order to help me work through it all. I feel as though my first tarot reading two weeks ago was meant to be and actually prompted me to "get further consultation" with Erica. 

And so, my question to you my dear friends is, do you believe in divine intervention and, if so, why? Was there an experience or event which made you think twice about what you truly believe? The reason I ask this is because it seems as though we choose our particular beliefs and/or faith/religion based upon our personal experiences. If you agree, please feel free to share yours with us.

Brightest Blessings ALL!

Throwback Thursday

(me in 1982)

(and in 1983)

Okay, since I posted a Dark Elf vintage pic last week I thought it only fair to post an old goofy one of me  of my 1983 graduation portrait. LOL!

Fluffy Bunnies.

Wicca's popularity of course was a good thing in general but let's face it. It's not for the masses, it's not for stupid, immature people and it's not for people that talk too much and brag about it. It has been designed for small groups - and NOT solitary - that practices it in SECRECY for reasons I don't want to discuss here even though I took no oath of any kind yet.

I know pretty much and discovered even more by myself but no, I took no oath of secrecy nor initiation. But I don't need the oath to understand that some dangerous secrets are not for the public. They will be both abused and used against us by the rest of society we live in. It's not anything "evil" or "satanic" as the christian majority uses to babble about but it can be considered so by these guys anyway. Secrecy protects us from defamation, scapegoating, hate talk and just another witch hunt by monotheist patriarchy.

(The real reason they hate us is that we have female leaders for our clergy. That 's the real reason of their hatred against the witches and absolutely nothing else. It's not ok to spread our secrets but it's ok to spread theirs....  )

New-agers that just heard of Wicca and are simply wearing a pentacle and going around telling everybody "Blessed Be" are NOT Wiccans. These are fluffy bunnies and wanna-be-witches. To be a Wiccan is a VERY DIFFICULT and very rare thing to happen and actually means that:

a) A person that is already Wiccan - from a magical line of initiations that drives back to a guy like Buckland, Cunningham, Sanders or Gardner - accidentally met you and liked you and so after FIVE YEARS of simple friendship chose you to be his student. No, it's neither democracy, nor votes, nor equal rights here.

b) That person then told you that he is a Wiccan and asked you if you would be interested in that. You answered "Yes." Then he gave you some books to study for A YEAR. After that he gave you A DAY to decide if you really want to be a Wiccan. You answered "Yes".

c) That person initiated you to the first degree of Wicca.

If all this happened to you then you can rest assured that you are a Wiccan. Else you MAYBE are NOT. It depends on traditions and definitions.

Some church-like traditions keep the three degrees for their "clergy" and keep their "crowd" at the step (b) which they call their outer circle while their clergy is called inner circle. The crowd can be present in rituals but they sit outside the magic circle and do not participate in the ritual.

The reasons for doing that are two-fold.

a) Money, subscriptions and donations. That shouldn't be needed but we live in the material plane and not exclusively in the astral... As long as there is nothing mandatory it is okay.

b) Energy. The ritual has stronger results when is faithfully watched by more people and the thought forms of the coven are stronger when faithfully worshiped by a larger crowd. As long as you keep the crowd outside of the "control centre" it is okay.

That way they keep unworthy people "away from their legs" and also have a use for them. This is actually the future of Wicca as it grows more and more. So these fluffy bunnies aren't actually a bad thing and they are pretty useful after all. Each one contributes with what he is able to and everybody is happy.

Ostara 2017

Yesterday was a rather "belated" Ostara ritual celebration for my sister Aurora Skye and myself . Originally we were planning on celebrating Ostara last weekend but with the unexpected passing of my beloved Midnight, I was not emotionally or mentally prepared to celebrate anything at the time. 

And so, we had decided that we would postpone our ritual honoring until this weekend. What made this ritual different from all of the others this year was that we were able to be joined by Dark Elf (Perry) via SKYPE in Greece.

It was a wonderful day because not only did we celebrate the Spring Equinox, we also had a much needed day to spend together - some sister time if you will.

We began the day attending the 25th Anniversary of one of our favorite wiccan shops, "Celtic Myth and Moonlight" where we were able to have a free reading of either runes, palm, or tarot. Aurora Skye chose a palm reading and I had a tarot. 

We did a bit more shopping and then went home to perform our Ostara ritual with Dark Elf ...

All in all, a most enjoyable day!!
