On Being Born A Witch

This weekend I had one of those caught-off-guard encounters about religion.  I typically consider myself well versed to debate…

If my pitbull attacks you... you are probably a bad person.

Eva, my 7 year old pit bull, went all Rin Tin Tin on a guy this weekend. I was home alone, Chris was wrestling, Talon was at my mothers while I steam cleaned all the carpets. I had Eva fenced in on the back patio so her big'ole paws weren't clomping all over my drying carpets. She had barked at random stuff all day, but when she started that "warning" bark, I knew something was wrong. There is a definite difference in her "look a squirrel" bark or even her "I see the neighbor" bark and the bark… Continue

Book Review - When Someone You Love Is Wiccan, by: Carl McColman

When Someone You Love Is Wiccan

by: Carl McColman

I downloaded this book onto my Kindle so that I could preview it; thinking I might buy it and give it to my mother. I wanted to make sure that I agreed with everything in the book, before handing it off to her as I'm sure it will be the only book on the matter she ever reads. (unless of course as the book suggests, she reads more on the subject later to better acquaint herself with my religion - heh, unlikely) Actually its… Continue

Telling your Doctor your Religion is Wicca - *gasp*!

Ok so I had a bit of a funny occurrence while in the hospital last weekend and I just had to share as I'm sure situations like this happen to others as well. I am nearly at the end of my pregnancy (I have a breech baby, so I'm having a C-section on Monday the 27th) but I was having some contractions this past Friday so I had to go into the hospital to be monitored. Well you know how they ask you like 101 questions about yourself and your lifestyle when you first go in there.. ok well one…

Meal-time Thanks Prayer

Earth who gives to us our food,
Sun who makes it ripe and good,
Dear Earth and dear Sun,
By you we live
Our loving thanks do we give

And also this variation:

Earth who gives to us our food,
Sun who makes it ripe and good,
Dearest Earth and dearest Sun,
Joy and love for all you've done.
For life and food we give thanks,

How A Divine Dream Saved An Innocent Animal From Death-By-Neglect

Ok, so you know when you have dreams that mean something. They stick out. They are memorable. They have a different feel to them. Well I had one of these the other night, and a few days later it became clear why. I thought I would share here to encourage all others to pay attention to these kind of dreams!


My husband came home from work and is walking through the house to me. (he does HVAC and is often dirty when he comes home)… Continue

What interaction with an animal and/or nature in your life has had the biggest impact on you?

When I was an older teen and was just starting to discover myself, I found that I was intensely drawn into the wooded hills that hug my city. I used all my free time for hiking, and eventually fell into certain patterns in the paths I took. There was one particular route I was prone to find myself on; that was, in part, a site of water run-off. The water had wore away the earth and left the humongous limestone boulders, like building blocks, exposed up the side of the hills, like a staircase… Continue

Leading my 1st public group ritual tomorrow night for Samhain!

Well, I'm getting ready to lead group ritual for the first time tomorrow night. I have Levy helping me so it shouldn't be *too* scary, lol. I have participated and had roles in group ritual many times in the past when I was a part of the ADF grove here in town. But I haven't been to a group rite since I left that ADF grove over 2 years ago! So needless to say, its about damn time! This will be the first… Continue

Lammas & meeting other Correllians

Well I hope everyone had a happy Lammas and Lughnassadh - which ever you celebrate (or both, lol)!!! I had a wonderful weekend - I finally got to meet a couple of fellow Correllians that I had befriended on the OLD site ( and had never had the change to meet in person. It was SO exciting!!! I am really starting to feel good about my goal to start a Correllian shrine here - I have always had a positive attitude about it, and I knew that if I really put my soul into this, that… Continue

Love Crazyness and Romantic Destiny Seeking Spell Prep

Well, my usually solid love life took a dive this past few weeks. I don't really like going into epic detail or anything over the internet, but suffice to say, that some things needed to change. Unfortunately the only way I saw clear to initiate those changes involved ending my relationship, forcing a realization of sorts. Which is actually working out pretty well I think, despite some unruly initial reactions and misunderstandings. At the moment, we are in a 2 month "trial" time in which… Continue

Crystal Shopping + Pagan Fesstivals

Chris and I went to our local newage shop last weekend and picked up a few things. It is rare for him to want to go with me there, and even more rare for him to ask me to buy him something! I was elated to say the least. We went in looking for a new quartz point to create a crystal web access point in the backyard of our new house (we wound up buying two that were just SO pretty) Then, he found the rack of stone rings (and when we were first together we use to wear crystal rings but they kept… Continue

First Blog of the New Site

Well I am putting up my first blog on this site, a real quick one. I only have internet access right now at work, so my involvement with WSI right now is minimized compared to the last year. I look forward to finding all my old friends from BOS on here, and finding more!

I finally ordered my stole and patches last week; I was waiting until I had something to put on the degree side. I now have a white stole with the 1st Degree and Web Weaver patches to go on it. The Correllian sigil… Continue
