Witchy Wednesday: My Year of Endings

When I went to see my spiritual counselor at the beginning of this year, she told me that on my birthday I will be entering a year of endings.* This is a good time to get rid of things, habits, and relationships which no longer benefit me. It's not really a great time to start … Continue reading Witchy Wednesday: My Year of Endings

Witchy Book Review: The Path of a Christian Witch by Adelina St. Clair

This post contains affiliate links. Please click here to read my disclosure policy. So, as I’ve mentioned, I’ve been attending church, recently. While I didn’t think I’d actively dislike it, I will admit that I was surprised to find that I actually enjoy it, enough that I’ve gone weekly for the last five weeks. I … Continue reading Witchy Book Review: The Path of a Christian Witch by Adelina St. Clair

A Witch’s Beginnings, part three

Part One. Part Two. Wicca has a “harm none” edict which felt stifling to me in my late teens and early twenties. Not that “harm none” isn’t a solid principle to adhere to, but so many of the resources I found at the time promoted a sort of spiritual altruism that I just couldn’t get … Continue reading A Witch’s Beginnings, part three

A Witch’s Beginning: Part 2

Last week, I talked about my childhood background in Christianity and how I ended up drifting away from that, because there wasn’t much of an anchor there to begin with. Something I’ve learned through my years of searching is that spiritual connection, regardless of your religious belief, needs to be cultivated. I was never taught … Continue reading A Witch’s Beginning: Part 2

A Witch’s Beginnings, part 1

In the past, I’ve spoken vaguely about how I came to Wicca, which shifted to Paganism, which has turned into agnostic witchcraft, which continues to shift as I continue to search. But, I haven’t spoken about where I was prior to that, or really delved into the meat of the journey which brought me to … Continue reading A Witch’s Beginnings, part 1

Witchy Wednesday: Stop Me if You’ve Heard This One…

Okay, so, an agnostic witch walks into a church... I’m sure everyone’s just dying to know how that went. Before I begin, let me preface this post with the following: My experiences with Christians/Christianity have not always been the best. I’ve mentioned before that I grew up in a Christian home, but we weren’t devout … Continue reading Witchy Wednesday: Stop Me if You’ve Heard This One…

Witchy Wednesday: Finding Mentors (in strange places)

This post is inspired by the wonderful Hestia's Servant and a post she made some time ago about a lack of elders and teachers in the Pagan community. I've been thinking a lot lately about the people I have learned from and those I've been seeking out for assistance, and I'm here today to echo … Continue reading Witchy Wednesday: Finding Mentors (in strange places)

Witchy Wednesday: Church and the Agnostic Witch

So, I've been thinking about going to church, lately. No, no, don't worry. I'm not converting and my soul hasn't been "saved." I still practice witchcraft and my beliefs are still what they have been (though I acknowledge that spirituality is always changing and my beliefs are not set in stone). I'm just looking for … Continue reading Witchy Wednesday: Church and the Agnostic Witch

Witchy Wednesday: Spiritual Counseling

Some of you may have noticed that I mention my "spiritual counselor" or "spiritual advisor" on occasion, but I don't think I've ever explained what that means, who she is, or what she does for me. Or, if I have, it's been lost in the annals and purges. I officially met Jacqueline Valdez when I … Continue reading Witchy Wednesday: Spiritual Counseling

Friday Faves: Bombasine Moonbeam Lunar Planner

Potential Triggers for this Post: Brief talk of menstruation Speaking of the moon phases... I'm a bit of a planner junkie. I compulsively buy planners I never use for various reasons (ranging from "I will totally get my shit together" to "Oh, pretty shiny!"). Like my stacks of empty notebooks, I've come to almost collect … Continue reading Friday Faves: Bombasine Moonbeam Lunar Planner
