Church, and other notes

It’s been a while since I posted. I kept meaning to write another post for October, but then it kept not happening. So here are some brief updates on various […]

On hexing, Nazis, and rape

[Content Warning for basically everything.] This post needs some background. First bit of background: I am a descendant of people who survived Nazi Europe. My Oma, a nurse in a […]

A person stands on a rock that is at the beach; to the left are mountains covered in greenery, to the right is the ocean. In the distance the sun is either rising or setting, making the sky an orange color.

I am sort of fried today. Didn’t sleep well, despite the CPAP; think I’ll have to lay off the coffee so late at night. I thought music would help me […]

A shrine to the gods Brighid, the Morrigan, and Manannan, with lit candles and offerings placed upon them. The shrine is covered in myriad holy items, with places for offerings to go and various representations of the gods.

Loafmass is supposed to be on August 2nd, making it parallel with Imbolc. Instead of focusing on any one of the Three, it’s a holiday for all of them. Loafmass […]

We have a vending spot at VPPD!

Er, the royal “we”, that is. So some of you may remember that last year I talked a bit about opening up a witchcraft shop, and then everything imploded and […]

Mother Tree Prayer

Do you watch the show Killjoys? Well, you should. It’s amazing. Seriously one of the best SF shows on right now. Also, religiously relevant to me. It’s become my new […]

Half a Deipnon

I decided to attempt to celebrate Hekate’s Deipnon on the 3rd/4th of this month, based on Deipnon described in this post on Patheos (with some alterations, of course). There are […]

Fleeing Father's Day

Father’s day is hard for me. I’ve been trying to reclaim it in Manannan’s name, as He is my Father now. Since I cut my bio-sire out of my life […]

the text "what cannot be said will be wept" attributed to Sappho laid over a visual representation of her.

I feel as if I’ve spent an entire week crying; weeping out my anguish first for the betrayal of the mothers who once welcomed me, and today for the physical […]

A picture of the Aurora Borealis. It is in shades of green and purple.

There are very few things I know for sure. This is true in all areas of my life, but right now I want to talk about just a few. About […]

Ebooks, Disability, and the Morrigan

You may have seen my Twitter rant the other week (later c&ped to my FB page in chronological order, for easier reading), when I started talking about how pagan booksellers […]

A volcano in the distance vents steam out of its top.

i am not an angry girl but it seems like i’ve got everyone fooled every time i say something they find hard to hear they chalk it up to my […]

A picture of the ocean with the text "Spirituality is a personal relationship with the Divine. Religion is crowd control."

I used to be fond of the phrase “I’m spiritual, not religious.” It seemed like a good way to indicate that I was interested in spirituality, but not Christianity specifically. […]

A candle, lit, in a lantern is in the background. In the foreground, matches are arranged to make the shape of a house.

Happy Imbolc, or Lughnasdh/Lammas if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere! I finished up Imbolc Advent last night before I went to sleep (so, 10:30am), and tonight I’ve got a few […]

Veiling: a 4-ish month retrospective

Couldn’t find a velvet headband today, but did find 3 velvet scrunchies and a lace headband that works pretty well! I love Ardene, ngl. #dailyveil #coveredpagan #Otherfaith #witchstagram #witchesofinstagram #paganveiling […]

The moon, waxing gibbous, surrounded by clouds.

2015 was a kind of crazy year for me. WordPress was kind enough to do the 2015 blogging report for this blog, because I have Jetpack enabled, and I found […]

I don’t know. There was a big post I wanted to do about my Oma and my mom and my aunt and how suicide/suicidal ideation/suicide attempts runs in our family, […]

Places where the gods are NOT

So I was thinking about my wording in my post from the other day, about how my faith has helped me in difficult times: In my faith I’m well aware […]
