Clients Everyone who reads Tarot for others on even a semi-regular basis has run into a client or querant who asks the wrong questions. Many of you have developed some sort of system for how to talk to these clients, how to either tell them outright, or gently coach them toward the right questions. Or,… Continue reading Tarot, Romance, and Me
It's no secret I love Thenea Pantera's posts over at Magic from Scratch. I can't remember which post it is now, but on one of them a while back there was discussion concerning the spirits/thought-forms/egregores of a country. I was encouraged to attempt contact with the egregore of America. I did, almost by accident. I… Continue reading My Encounter with the American Egregore
Let me make this absolutely clear so there are no misunderstandings: I support my transgender siblings, anyone who identifies as transgender. I accept them for who they are and I do not support anyone who vilifies or questions my siblings' very existence. I support my Pagan trans siblings' right to exist in our spaces without… Continue reading I Support My Trans Siblings
Let's just lay this out up front: much of Paganism isn't welcoming to asexuals or asexuality.
Yes. All of this.
I talk to my friends’ gods. It’s a nasty habbit. It fills me full of secrets I have to keep, and I hate keeping secrets.
Deity: You seem to be in a good situation, with respect to your household. Which of your gods set you up?
Me: I… Actually you can’t credit my gods with this one. Every last one of them told me to stay away from him. I married him anyway. So that’s all me.
I got to thinking about where I’d be today if I had obeyed the gods on this issue.
I never would have finished college. I’d be living in a place isolated from any sort of suitable pagan community. I never would have learned Kabalah, or Ceremonial Magic. I would have been unable to bring those exegetical techniques to Hellenismos.
I would be struggling with poverty. I might not have access to suitable doctors to…

I have noticed three elements that are always present when I seek to do deep, spontaneous magic from my heart: water, darkness, and movement. Movement I've been intending to begin dance classes in Yemaya's name, wherein I will dedicate each movement to her; so far, mostly due to scheduling and financial issues, I haven't been… Continue reading Three Elements of Practice: Water, Darkness, and Movement.
Though, this is one of the few places I've been quiet. I've spent the past two months being extremely vocal and active in other places, including Twitter, which I've never used much before (except when on vacation). I've attended my local Women's March, and I'm hoping someone organizes a local Science March (I'll organize if… Continue reading Sorry for being quiet
Later today, or at this point, fuck it, maybe even tomorrow, maybe I'll take all day today (it is 2:30am after all) to process what just happened in my country and try to decide what to do next... ... at some time later, I will begin to move forward. Not on, but forward. I already… Continue reading I’ve just spent the last two hours crying…
