I found this question posted in "another place" for a UK group today.......
So - if you practice witchcraft, regardless of whether you follow the Rede or not - how important is it to Keep Silent? ie, Not to discuss the working, or share that you are doing anything at all...
Does it matter if you talk about it?
Does it interfere with the spell?
Once the spell is complete and the outcome achieved - is it okay to talk about it…
Our Coloring Page today continues our series on the Muses. Today's Muse is Clio, the Muse of history. The name 'Clio' means 'Famous' or 'Renowned', and this says something about how the ancient Greeks saw the study of history: not so much as an analysis of what had gone before, but as a celebration of famous people and situations. Clio's symbol is an open book or scroll -although an argument could be made that it might be time for Her to consider adopting the e-book or computer.…

Our Coloring Page today is the first of a new series on the Muses. The Muses are ancient Greek Goddesses of creativity and inspiration.

The Muses originate in ancient Greece but remained important in the Roman period and have continued as an important cultural symbol up to the present day. This picture shows Calliope, the Muse of…Continue

When I started my crazy kitchen experiment of home made incense blends, I had thought that these to were kind of interchangeable but that psyllium was the better binder. Since a friend of mine said she could get xanthan gum more easily, I revisited the ingredient and learned more. So what's the better binder? It will depend on you to decide based on the variations.
Let's start with availability and cost. If you are looking at a bulk distributor, you can get plenty of both for about $3…Continue

To begin with, this is NOT the stuff you buy from the dollar store. Real vanilla bean has a special reaction to fire in this mix that I could not have predicted and don't feel the need to change.
If you stand right over the lit stick and breath deeply, you smell....camp fire. Lots of camp fire. I love a good open fire, and so I like the rich woody smoke smell. Now it's a dominant and lingering effect that had me thinking my first try was a fail on bringing out the lovely aroma of a…Continue

Our Coloring Page today is another black and white version of a card from the Tarot of Hekate, in this case the Princess of Lamps. The Tarot of Hekate is a one hundred card Tarot having five Minor Arcana suits rather than the ordinary four: Wands, Swords, Chalices, Pentacles, and Lamps. The suit of lamps deals specifically with issues of the personal spiritual path. Each of the suits was illustrated through a different culture. Wands: Renaissance Europe. Swords: feudal Japan. Chalices:…Continue

Smells like wood smoke at first, then settles into a definite berry finish that fills a room nicely.
1/8 teaspoon psyllium seed husk fiber
3 teaspoons fluffy rosewood powder, or 1 packed teaspoon.
9 drops raspberry candy flavoring
Mix water with other ingredients till a firm but pliable dough forms. It will mostly stick to itself when it's damp enough, but will resemble pastry and come apart in flaky layers. Wrap securely in plastic wrap and leave it…Continue

Our Coloring Page today is the black and white version of the High Priestess card from the Tarot of Hekate. This was one of the first cards done for the deck, in fact it may have been done as an illustration before drafted into the deck. It shows the Goddess wearing the mural crown associated with many ancient Goddesses such as Tyche and Cybele, surrounded by a wreath of leaves with the Moon behind and the Pentagram above. In one hand She holds the Shen, ancient Egyptian symbol of eternity,…Continue

I'm praying for my friend who has been forced to endure deceit & lies of a bad unjust system. I have known my friend for nearly forty years, my friend does not deserve what these deceitful pretenders are doing to her. Nor the lies that they have spread about her.
She's a good person who was put in a crappy situation. No one deserves that. I can only hope through wishing her success & that good Karma goes her way.
I won't wish the others who are putting her through this…Continue

Our Coloring Page today is a piece from 1992. This is one of many pieces available in 'Rev. Don's Pagan and Magical Clip Art'. This piece shows -depending upon how you look at it- a happy Pagan family, or the Mother Goddess, Father God, and Divine Child. The ambiguity as to whether the image represents the mortal or the divine is intentional, and was meant to represent the imminent nature of Deity. This drawing was created and used for the 1992 Pan Pagan Festival, where it appeared on…Continue

I could swear I did a write up for this burn base around the time I posted the root beer incense recipe. It turns out I only intended to type this and haven't yet.
Sassafras is is really neat. I have a long standing love of root bear floats and it smells....like root beer. Mom started getting the root for herbal tea some time after she found that sugar did not play nicely with her body. Since it was one of the key ingredients in the original old root beer recipes, it…Continue

To begin with, not all rosewoods are created equal, in many ways. Rosewood essential oil is often taken from a Brazilian tree, aniba rosaeodora. When you buy wood from a craft supply shop, unless they get specific about the wood origin, it may be any number of tree species that have a rosy color, and they are not even all in the same family of tree. Types of rosewood can be found in Africa, South America, and South East Asia, and Australia, but since the look of the wood rather than the…Continue

Our Coloring Page today is from 'Rev. Don's Pagan and Magickal Clip Art'. The picture is the black and white version of the 'Mind' card from the Tarot of Hekate. The Tarot of Hekate being a 100 card deck, there are a number of cards in it that are not part of a traditional Tarot deck, including an entire added suit. The Mind card represents the relationship between Mind and Soul. The woman represents the Soul, as indicated among other symbolism by her infinity-knot hairstyle. The peacock…Continue
