April 2009 Blog Posts (74)


This is something I wrote a couple years ago I've posted this in several groups and thought I'd repost it here. I wrote it under the name Amaethon Cane.


I’m a being much like you with thoughts and feelings, likes and dislikes.

I have wisdom and knowledge that has yet to be tapped,

I’ve been various people in the past; a scholar, a poet, a warrior, a noble, a peasant.

I have been around for ages,

But even with all I’ve been and done… Continue

Weekend Update

My original plans for this past weekend were to drive to Salem on Saturday for Lustration. Two months ago, we had a group rent the camp that was planning on 150 to 200 people. With those numbers, I resigned myself to having to stay at home to help with the kitchen work. I also asked my parents to watch Alex for the weekend, first so that I would be able to work and second because there were adult themes to the weekend.

I am now waiting for the DVD of the conference, since I had to… Continue

I'm reminded of the stories my grandmother told me about the Billy Goat's Gruff. As they tried to make their way across a bridge, they were eaten by a troll who lived underneath. Scared the crap out of me. But these same nightmares have a way of moving into a coven. Little by little, they begin to devour the good, the peace, the unity that once held the group together.

At first in the guise of a new member; she seems to fit right in, then destruction begins with a deception here, a… Continue

I'm horrible at this

I really am horrible at keeping up with my online family. Oh, I read emails and blog posts and such. But for me to actually write something about ME on a blog? It's a rarity. I have a blog for my store that I've been neglecting for the past couple months as my health has taken a downturn. The rest of my blogs, including a local Ning group and my covenspace and paganspace blogs, have been ignored completely. I just don't have the time and when I do have the time, I don't remember as I'm too busy… Continue

The Dangers of Coming Out of the Broom Closet (and the Closet Closet) [personal rant]

Let me preface this by saying, first and foremost, that my brother-in-law has always been a disagreeable excuse for a human being, and my being honest about who I am just gives him more fuel for what was already a pretty strong fire to begin with. You see, he doesn't like me, and I don't like him. The first time I ever met him, I was doing a focus group as part of a school project (a Master's degree level class in Social Work with people with HIV/AIDS) and had put some chairs into a circle so… Continue

I Used To

I used to be able to reach out and feel you

But something has changed

I used to be entranced by your energy

As it would surround me

I used to be able to reach up and touch you

But is it no longer the same

I reveled as your hand cupped my cheek

Entwined yet flying free

I used to listen and hear your voice calling

But now I sit in silence

I sang with you in the moon light

Dappled by the… Continue

I look out from behind camouflage

You don’t see Me watching you

I am the evil that you seek

I smell you, you reek with unnatural aromas

You thought I was innocent?

I am the evil that you seek

My muscles quiver with adrenaline

You are unaware of my stalking you

My first touch a might swipe

That brings you to your knees

Now you pray to the God you had

Before you switched for fashion

You played at what for me was deadly passion

I… Continue

Meal Time

Lip pouts, feet kick, arms reach
Whimpering begins
It is time
Lay down my impatient one
Toes needle hip bones
Delicate digits brush skin
Examine chest and breast
Strong rhythmic pull of tongue
Contrasts erratic excited breath
Now it comes
Announced with approving grunts
Demand for the second teat
Softening sighs
Finally sweet sounds of sleep

Subject: Tell Pesticide Peddlers: We support Michelle Obama's organic garden.

Dear Friend,

The Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) has a bone to pick with Michelle Obama. MACA represents chemical companies that produce pesticides, and they are angry that — wait for it — Michelle Obama isn't using chemicals in her organic garden at the White House.

I am not making this up.

In an email they forwarded to their supporters, a MACA spokesman wrote, "While a garden is a great idea, the thought of it being organic made [us] shudder." MACA… Continue

save the wolves

Answer the Wolf’s Distress Call


Take action, then hear the wolf howl.

It’s going to take a national outcry to block the massacre of hundreds of wolves in Idaho and Montana -- which could start as early as May 4 when their federal protections are removed..

Speak out now against the killing. Add your voice to The Big Howl, NRDC’s new rapid-response mobilization… Continue

Newest book out from Llewellyn!

I just got a box containing my new book from Llewellyn!

The Goddess is in the Details is my favorite book so far--all about how to integrate your spiritual beliefs as a pagan with your everyday life. Lots of practical suggestions on how to "walk your talk" every day. If you want to be a witch 24/7, not just on the Sabbats and Full moons, this is the book for you!

I hope everyone will check it out -)

magick is all colors....there is no black/white

The following was said in an email to a friend of mine in response to somenting she had said about some people we know....names have been removed for, um, protection of my ASS....LOL

""I wasn't surprised by the comments at all. You can't mention anything

about dark magick or demons or getting back at anyone in the XXX.

Personally, I think a lot of them are just fluffy bunnies. Afraid to get

their hands dirty you know?

I believe that it's all a matter… Continue

Up-Coming Minnesota Events

I tried to post these to the events calendar, but I think they just ended up in my private events. . (Bear with me... I'm still learning the ins and outs of this ning.) So, anyway, I thought I might repeat them here since I'd like any fellow WitchSchool Minnesotan to be able to know about them.

Protection Invocation to Hecate

Oh Wise Hecate, bless me please

And all that does belong to me.

Bless my work and my endeavors

Protect and keep me safe forever.

From every place that harm is wrought,

From every evil that's allowed,

Protect me, Wise One, Guard me now.

Help me to walk in harmony

With every stone, bird, and tree

With every creature on this Earth

Let me live in joy and mirth.

That I may always be their friend

And gain their protection 'til this… Continue

Lifelong Student

Tony, you are so right! I have been studying the Craft since 1980. As long as I am alive, I hope to keep learning.

Perhaps you are in need of using clever means to divert trouble that may be headed your way. This may call for the use of an aggressive, noisy distraction. Or maybe, you need to be more aggressive with those people or things that are causing the trouble. In this instance you must show no fear toward those things or people who may appear larger than you are. It may be that this is a portend of someone being aggressive toward you in order to make… Continue

I am looking for local La Crosse or Vernon County Wisconsin Area Correllian Witches.


Do you read the Faerie Oracle? I do and would love to chat about it or exchange readings!
