Pagan News and Views Since 1998
Feel like just jotting down random thoughts so here goes, please be patient if you read it! Like all things, the bad in life too passes so why do we fret so much while it is present? Trusting in our own personal history it proves that bad is never an always thing yet we let ourselves get trapped in gloom. Me, personally, realized that each time that trap consumed me it only made things worse and last longer, sadly it took a few years to figure it out though, but all the wiser now! :)

I have been doing some journey work lately, and I found a grove in the middle of a forest of silver trees, with a rose quartz altar at its center, and a stream going through it. This was a quest to find my patron goddess, which I had fully expected to be Athena, because my aspirations match with her embodiment, but it was Artemis. A truly wild child, who I now fear to offend.
Hear me out.
At first, it was a very small meeting, because I had done a taped spirit quest, and I…Continue
Have a lot on my mind lately. Happy thoughts in my head from my life experience. Feelings of confusion as not many seem to believe, or at least post my thoughts on this matter.
Good things have happened to me far more than bad, or at least that is my focus lol, but the point is something needing others thoughts on. Feelings on soul mates is the biggest thing my mind is wrapping around as of late.
Trust me when you hear me say that my knowledge is far from fact and merely…
I'm going to a full moon gathering next week with a friend, and meeting up with a new friend.
Met this nice young lady who just moved here from Cali to take care of her mother. I enjoy talking to her. She is a bit older than me which is nice, I could use some mature friends.
I hope the weather is lovely next Monday!
a couple of hours ago, I was helping my dad lift up the mower blade panel out from the tractor when a mouse went flying out from underneath, and what should we see curled up in a little hole in the ground but a small handfull of baby mice.
My dad was going to kill them, saying "you think they are cute until they get into the house". But I said, "listen, you and I both know this tractor isnt going to be fixed for at least a few weeks. By then they will have either left on their own or…Continue
well i have experienced coming out of the closet and it was strange and i felt judged because i changed my religon from Christian to wicca/ pagan and nobody liked it and just went off. But i have excepted the fact that i am not going anywhere and im studying my arse off on witch school International and I be me and nobody can change that but me.
My boyfriend tried to suprise me by showing up at the club i was at with my friends, he got me roses and it was sweet. For 2 seconds. I said something that sent him flying off the handle. I ended up crying outside on a bench by myself. He tried to make up but even then he was still fighting with me a bit. I just wanted a nice night. I haven't had nice night out since......last time will took me to utopia. I was so happy and dancing and laughing . I was talking most the night and we went to…Continue

I learned yesterday after noon that my uncle Luther had died earlier that day. And my heart is broken along with the hearts of my family. I wanted to write a spell to help ease my aunts pain but I just cant seem to find the words. My own pain is making it impossible for me to create this spell. I Truly need help. Please and Thank you!!

A friend of mine came over unannounced for a visit today but became dead set on leaving as soon as they found out I owned 2 domesticated rats. I asked her "Whats wrong with that, they are no different than hamsters or ferrets". She said "but rats are dirty and diseased, omg kill them. I'm too cute to die". LMAO, give me a break, she isn't that cute.
When it comes to all life on earth, and possible life in the universe, we are all part of a grand design whether divine or otherwise. Its…Continue
I think I'm being called to become a priestess of the Goddess, but not in the "traditional" sense. I want to be a priestess to Her in my own right, not through some degreed thing or a coven. Just....me. Being closer to Her and the Elements, and just....maybe this was brought on by reading a book in that Mists of Avalon series, but.... I just feel that this is an important thing I need to pursue.
So, does anyone know anything I can do to sort of align myself? Anything you can…
I feel so discouraged. I have realized that I am not happy. I know that I am just going through motions and coasting through life. I love being a mother but, i feel like my life has only become about that. I think i deserve to be happy. I deserve to be happy about something other than being a mom. I just don't know if I can be happy. I do have great friends. But I want to be happy when i lay in bed at night. I think I may have messed that up for myself. I try and be a nice person to do good…Continue
One of these days I'm going to swear off “resume books”, but they keep coming my way (thanks to my penning The Job Stalker blog over on the Chicago Tribune's “Chicago Now” site), and I keep reading them. As regular followers of this space will appreciate, after spending the first 25 years of my professional career…Continue

Have you ever been forced to know someone who was so insufferable that you couldn't event be mad at them? My dad is like that. He single handedly alienated everyone at his old job, 5/6 of his siblings, his ex-wife, his ex-wife's family and now not one, but both of his children. He is in for a very lonely life. I am going to pray to the god and goddess every day for him.
This was another Dollar Store find, and it's probably a good thing, or I would have been having “buyers' remorse” otherwise. Although the book did redeem itself to a certain extent by the time it was over, it was a long strange trip (and not in a good way) through a lot of very anachronistic advice!…

So I'm still kinda new at all this. Over the years I've learned the vary basic of basics. And now I'm trying to further my education into the craft. I want more than anything to learn all their is to know and put it all to good use. My journey will be a long one, and its one that I am more then willing to take. But my fatal flaw is never know just when to ask for help. So this is me asking for help. If any one has any book recommendations please tell me. I'm still working on getting the…Continue

My Perfect world is a place where:
Everyone is happy
Mothers don't drown their children
Husbands don't beat their wives
There is equal pay for equal work
All nations work cooperatively
All communities understand and revere the earth as the true deed holders to our land, and we are just borrowing it
Minimum wage is not seen by employers as an inconvenience
Walking with tight lips past an act of violence shall be viewed…
