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
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
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.

Like my stacks of empty notebooks, I've come to almost collect … Continue reading Friday Faves: Bombasine Moonbeam Lunar Planner
Today is Wednesday. I've been trying to post on Wednesdays. But, yesterday Pup and I went to Disneyland (in the pouring rain) and I didn't have time to queue anything up. So, now it's after 5:30pm and I'm just now getting around to posting. My bad. Better late than never, right? Anyway, I'm still on … Continue reading Witchy Wednesday: Oops
This post could be alternately titled: What is it with boys and knives, anyway? At the beginning of our relationship, my ex had this awful happen of fiddling with my altar. During that time, I still considered myself a Wiccan and had what most would consider a pretty "standard" altar set-up: an athame, a chalice, … Continue reading Witchy Wednesday: Hands Off!
