So You Want to Wear a Safety Pin

The safety pin others are wearing means more than just pinning one to your shirt. This is a helpful post on how to prepare.

What a Witch

Great. This is a necessary behavior in the face of the election of the most overtly racist, sexist, xenophobic, anti- gender and sexual minority candidate in the history of the modern United States. You know the rhetoric of his campaign was wrong. It was the very worst thing about America and you want to do what you can to combat the result. Good. Do that.

But don’t do it without a plan. Because the very last thing a tense situation needs is someone full of good intentions but with no knowledge of de-escalation tactics or self-defense. Your intentions are not a tangible shield. If you don’t make a plan, you will get yourself or the person you are trying to defend very killed.

Let’s avoid that.

So make a plan.

Some of you can stop reading now. You have, or know how to make a plan and you don’t need…

Lodestone: The Witch’s Amulet

Lodestone, also known as Magnetite, is one of the most potent stones for manifestation. This stone magnetically attracts into your present, what you most need to experience. In fact, Lodestone is one of the most magnetic stones found in nature. This is a strong stone for attracting abundance and prosperity, and can draw into your life more love and commitment in your personal relationships, if that is something you seek.

This is also a very strong spiritual grounding stone, which grounds you down to the Earth Star chakra, and is therefore a very strong psychic protection stone. This is why they are extremely powerful amulets.

Alexander the Great distributed Lodestones to his troops to protect them from djinn. The Chinese used lodestones as wedding rings to ensure a strong loving marriage. The Romans carved their statues Venus and Mars with Lodestone, so both could be attracted to each other. Ancients…

An Invitation to the Temple of the Ancestral Mother’s

Blessings to you and hope you achieve your vision.

Celtic Soul Craft

Fall is definitely creeping through the foothills of the Appalachians and finally the temperature is beginning to cool. All summer I’ve yearned for cooler temperatures as there has been so many days where there is very little difference between the day and the night temperatures.

Today I feel unsettled, restless. I had this vision that I just want to retreat to the temple of the Ancestral Mother’s. To enter the temple in the half light of dawn and open the door and windows to the new day. I yearn to lie down in front of her altar, look up to see images of the ancient mothers and her symbols as I purify myself in the aroma of dried herbs grown from the garden. To turn on some music which expands this moment and stretches me back through the ages to my foremothers and to the future foremothers.

I’ll…
