    Continuing the conversation from the previous post, when it comes to maintaining a nice steady cash flow it is by far better to do something on a regular basis because magick is cumulative! I like the fast turnaround that candle magick provides for this.   Take a green candle that you only use for this particular spell. (If you are unable to have an open flame you can still use this spell substituting visualisation with green and/or gold light). Should a green candle not be possible any colour will do or pure magickal beeswax is also great.   You can either choose to do this once…

  • Book Review – Celebrate Wildness Magic: Mirth and Love on the Feraferia Path

    Lisa Roling
    29 Aug 2015 | 6:57 am
    Review: Celebrate Wildness: Magic, Mirth and Love on the Feraferia Path. (First Edition) Written by Jo Carson. Years ago I was given a list of books to read in response to my interest in pursuing Paganism. Margot Adler’s Drawing Down the Moon was one of those books and, through that text, I first learned of the Feraferia tradition. At the time, the tradition did not specifically call to me. Even if it had, there was lack of access to information and teachers in Georgia in the 1990s. Wrapped up in trying on different practices and traditions, I didn’t give it much more thought. Then, a…

I looked down at the torn sign and snapped back to reality. “Oh god, I’m so sorry,” I blurted to the man sitting a few feet away as I started to bend over to pick it up. “Only Need $20 More For Bus Ticket Home” the sign said. Next to the sign was a collection of objects presumably for sale. There were a few tattered romance novels, some antique Coke bottles, and what looked like a…

    In December 2014, a new website was launched to promote active religious learning and to act as a storehouse for primary religious text and information. The site, called Deily.org, is the brain-child of Shawn Bose and Justin Halloran, two Austin-based entrepreneurs with experience in tech media. In recent months, the site has expanded its content to include “Paganism.” The site’s name “Deily” is a play on two words – daily and the “latin world “dei, of a/the god or the nominative plural – the gods.” As is explained, Deily’s…

    ORANGE, Conn. — Harvest Gathering is not the only Pagan festival to welcome participants home upon arrival, but its staff put a lot of energy into the idea. The theme came up again and again over the course of the four-day event, and it was evident in the increasing spring in the step of many an attendee. How many harvest events open the first feast to all comers, whether or not they paid for the meal plan? This one does, and it not only helped this first-timer feel welcome, it set the tone of “harvest event” from the outset. Perhaps Harvest Gathering had exactly the right…

    August 29 The Birth of Hathor In the Egyptian traditions, today is the birthday feast of the Goddess Hathor. Hathor is a very ancient Goddess, pre-dating the times of the Pharaoh dynasties. Horus was associated with kingship, and Hathor was associated with the queen. Her name translates to “The House of Horus,” for it is upon Her breast that the Sun God comes to sleep every night. But also, as the entire world could be said to be the House of Horus, Hathor is considered a Mother Goddess of the whole world, similar to Isis. Music and dance are essential in the worship of Hathor,…

As mentioned yesterday, trying to translate the ancient Egyptian feast days to the modern calendar is tricky business, especially since the calendar varied in different locations and different dynasties of ancient Khemet. And of course our own modern, solar calendar has been fiddled with many times over the centuries. Still, many scholars would reckon that this would be the feast day of the Nativity of the Goddess Nephthys. Nephthys is the daughter of the earth God Geb and the sky…

I’ve discussed it some in the Betwixt series, though it’s largely remained a personal exploration. Part of that curiosity has been sitting with realities around childhood dreams of making my living as a novelist tempered by the more practical results of publishing. My truth is that I never wanted to do anything else. Complicating that desire with the shamanic fury in my head has generated a deep sense of purpose for me.  Yet like so many others…
