When gestures have meaning ...

Here's one of those “surprises” that came in from the folks at Wiley (helllooo, FTC). When this first came in, I was thinking “what am I supposed to do with that?”, but because it was relatively short, and I'd hit a snag on another project (you'll hear about that eventually), I decided to slot it into my reading a week or… Continue

Earth: (North/Feminine/Green) Fertility, Healing, Grounding, Stability, Growth

Air: (East/Masculine/Yellow) Creativity, Thoughts,… Continue

Details of The Elements

Earth: Connected to the North, Earth is considered the ultimate feminine element. The Earth is fertile and stable, associated with the Goddess. The planet itself is a ball of life, and as the Wheel

of the Year turns, we can watch all the aspects of life take place in

the Earth: birth, life, death, and finally rebirth. The Earth is

nurturing and stable, solid and firm, full of endurance and strength. In

This we could use!

This is probably the fastest turn-around that I've ever done on a review … as the book in question just came in a couple of days ago, and I only decided that it might make an amusing entry for The Job Stalker today. Fortunately (and, evidently),… Continue

Fear Barrier

As I've been undergoing a special form of training, I've noticed a huge hole in my heart as of late. Fear, in my younger years I was fearless. Not afraid of consequences nor judgment. Somewhere along the way I became more cautious of the thoughts of others and more 'empathetic' toward others and their feelings. Things happened in my life and for the first time I felt fear, fear of loosing control over my life and so forth. When in the truth of the matter was I never had control. Control was an… Continue

Outraged!

I am absolutely outraged. I am a religious studies Major and I have done a lot of study of various religions as well as Wicca. I am Wiccan by choice although I see the truths in all religions. I have somewhat become a Religious Tolerance Activist as well as an advocate for the Islamic Faith. After this whole 9/11 thing, the media has made many people believe that Islam is a religion of hate and anger and terrorism. Religious fanatics in any religion is a bad thing, but I can tell you that there… Continue

News from Teagan

Alright, so, unfortunately, my mom's going to have problems driving me all the way to Ann Arbor on a monthly basis, so I guess I'm not going to be a part of the Shining Lakes Grove. But, that's okay, you know? I still have my wonderful friends that I'm starting a study group with, and we can make it rock.



In other news, I took a trip to my local Barnes and Noble today to pick up a book called Druid Magick. Apparently, the New Age section…
