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…
Unfortunately, I did not perform the Samhain ritual I so wanted to do. Between drama related to a group project for one of my classes, and the start of NaNoWriMo, ritual slipped away and didn't happen. I'm disappointed, both that it didn't happen, and in myself for letting it become the least important thing in… Continue reading A Belated Blessed Samhain to you all.
I did this thing a week or so ago, and it just now occurred to me that I could reblog it here. With the gift-giving holiday season approaching, consider purchasing Capricious Symbols for the avid reader on your gift list.
I finally decided to put together a short anthology of a few short stories. I don’t have many right now (but I do have a virtual file cabinet of story ideas on my computer!), so I enhanced the anthology with a three chapter sneak-peek at Strange Magic 1: In Touch With Death.
It will be available for Amazon Kindle and Kobo some time in the next week to three weeks, depending on the service. Keeping checking your favorite to see if it’s available!
I hope some of you decide to purchase; I am a college student, and can use all…

Samhain is next month, and I'm excited! It's my favorite holiday, both secularly and spiritually. I absolutely intend to wear a costume, even if only a simple one, that Monday evening to class! Traditionally--as much as anything can be traditional in such a young spiritual community--Samhain has a strong connection to the Ancestors and Death,… Continue reading Chaos Paganism’s Calendar: Samhain for a Modern Pagan
I wrote a while back about magical names and my relationship (or lack thereof) with them. Since then, I've changed my name (and thus the url for this blog) yet again. Thankfully, I don't see myself changing it again any time soon. Of course, I didn't expect to do so when I first started using… Continue reading A Celestine by Any Other Name…
