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

I have lots of exciting news! 1) Pagan related - I'll be blogging at Paganbloggers.com!

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
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…
He kindly stopped for me – The Carriage held but just Ourselves – And Immortality. --Emily Dickinson So a thing happened the other day that I was not expecting, and it put me off guard, and it seemed one of those out there WOO things that anti-theists and others use to put down Paganism. Looking back, though,… Continue reading Because I could not stop for Death–

Also, that… Continue reading The Holy Days of One Modern Pagan
