"Go over and over your beads,
paint designs on your forehead,
wear your hear matted, long,
and ostentatious.

But when deep inside of you
there is a loaded gun
how can you know the Gods?"
-verse by Kabir, translated by Robert Bly, slightly modified by yours truly to give it a polytheistic bent

Re: Leto/Latona

I've actually done a few rituals to Leto, because She is the mother of one of my earliest patron godesses Artemis. But I'm honestly blown away by the amount of research you've accumulated. My own designed rituals seem kind of simplistic in comparison; I'm ashamed to say I haven't thought much about ...

Re: Room Protection Spell?

Bundles of sage or rosemary (or both, I suppose) hung above a doorway is said to protect a space from negative energy. Salt is also supposed to be protective, as are stones like agate, jasper, quartz, hematite, obsidian, and many others. But on a more physically practical note, is there any way to i...

Re: Beyond your "One True Patron Deity"

This is a really great post. I used to be obsessed with finding like...my One True Patron Deity? Not so much anymore. As you say, I think we have different patrons for different stages in our lives. I certainly have!

Quotes: Men, Women, Nature, History

Do you really believe...that everything historians tell us about men-or about women-is actually true? You ought to consider the fact that these histories have been written by men, who never tell the truth except by accident. -Modesta Pozzo, "On the Worth of Women" We are also daughters of the great...

An Invocation To Frigg

I have been working With Frigg a lot lately, so I thought I'd share this invocation. It, and variants of it, have become a regular part of my rituals when I work with Her. It doesn't consciously follow any specific poetic format, but I actually rather of like the way it flows. Anyway, here it is. Yo...

Re: Does your God/dess ever get mad at you?

A general rule of thumb is ... No electronics in circle, or during meditation. Not only turn them off, but leave them far from where you are working. This includes watches (if anyone still wears a watch). The electro-magnetic energy they put out can distort whatever you are doing. BB, FF I generall...

A Meditation on Water Magic and Healing

Absorb thyself in this great sea of the Waters of Life.
Dive deep in it until thou hast lost thyself.
And having lost thyself, then thou shalt find thyself again.
Even as it is written,
“She had her dwelling in the great sea and was a fish therein.”

— The Book of Tokens, by Paul Foster Case.

Re: My boyfriend doesn't want me to be wiccan?

But the way it sounds to me, his repeated insistence that you go with him to church (and getting his family to try to convert you), even over your consistent refusals, is a pretty significant red flag that points to a deeper problem. Sakura is right that he may care so much about you that he will d...

Re: My boyfriend doesn't want me to be wiccan?

My boyfriend is really big on me not keeping secrets... So after a while (I've known him for about four years before we started to date) I told him that I am pagan. I didn't tell him that I was wiccan because I knew he would deffinitly be worried. I also told him that I work with Loki, he begged me...

Not dumb at all. They are definitely birds of prey (I assumed bald eagles because my cousin has a patriotic streak ten miles wide). They could be hawks, I suppose.

John Barleycorn

A folk-music version of the ancient myth of death and rebirth. The turning of the year. Sacrifice and resurrection. Addiction and release. It is at least 500 years old, quite possibly much, much older; a relic from Neolithic times (10,200 B. C.E. to 2,000 B.C.E.) "John Barleycorn represents the Whee...
