The arrival of Ostara provides us with an opportunity to celebrate the return of the light half of the year. For our Ancestors that was pretty exciting stuff. It signified that they had survived the dark, cold months of the year. They had managed to stay warm enough. And they had successfully stretched their stores of food throughout the season of lack. The onset of the season of plenty had arrived. And they were all about getting out there and showing their reverence for the return of the Sun.Read More
Magical practice is a very personal thing. It often varies greatly from one individual to another. And, unfortunately, it is my experience that many of the people out there who market themselves as mentors have ulterior motives.Read More
But what is a Witch to do when she is out and about, or maybe traveling, and wants to perform magical workings by an altar. I mean she doesn’t NEED an altar to work magic. So there's that!

The next logical step for me is to spend an afternoon doing a cleansing ritual on each and every one of these helpful little allies.
I want them to be free of any juju they may be carrying around which I have not intentionally placed there. And also from any they picked up just sitting in the many spaces I have drug them off to over the years. A few of these little ones have never been cleansed. They could still be carrying energy from where they were harvested and their subsequent travel to their place of sale. Ugh! Imagine that! Who knows what kind of energy they may harbor!Read More
