Witchy Wednesday—Samhain is here.

Happy Samhain Everyone! I thought I would share some facts about Halloween/Samhain for you. Jack O’ Lanterns: Jack O’ Lanterns were originally created guide spirits on Halloween night. The lanterns acted as a light, guiding the spirit back to the afterlife. I think the scary faces were to keep them from the house….but I could be wrong…

Do yourself a favor. Go watch this show on repeat until next week and enjoy yourself.   Elizabeth Montgomery plays the character Samantha Stevens. By the second season she is trademarked as the “typical suburban housewife” who just happens to mess things up constantly with her witchcraft. Sometimes her family and friends do the messing…

Witchy Wednesday—Kitchen Witchery

I think a lot of people are “Kitchen Witches” without knowing it. I don’t think it has anything to do with magic or religions. I think it has everything to do with soul. I think it’s very important to learn to cook for yourself. It seems like a dying art now, I know so many…

Witchy Wednesday-Why are Dreams so weird?

Hello all! Well, this isn’t as “witchy” as it is about me. I’ve been having lots of weird dreams lately, so I thought I would share. So far this week: -Apocalyptic dream that was a set up to see if I could handle a real apocalypse. Apparently my Dad was testing my ability to handle…

Witchy Wednesday-Why Earth Worship Makes Sense to Me

First and foremost, these are my opinions. I am, in no way, forcing them upon others, but I’ll explain why they are what they are. Earth worship makes sense to me for many reasons, but mainly because the Earth is where we live. It feeds us, provides us with materials, and it never asks for…

Witchy Wednesday–Autumn is here.

Apparently I was wrong about the date of Mabon this year, the equinox shifted thanks to some weird calendar things. So it was yesterday. We didn’t really do much. Having no garden or extra money, we really didn’t have a “harvest bounty” to celebrate. In fact, we had to go spend more money than we…

Deity Duality–Witchy Wednesday

So, last night I was reading and I found some information interesting. I thought I would share for Witchy Wednesday. I was reading “Living Wicca” by Scott Cunningham and I was particularly interesting in the chapter on Deity. In Wicca, we worship a duality in nature. The masculine and the feminine, which are affectionately called…

Are you a Good Witch or a Bad Witch?—Witchy Wednesday

That age old question: “Are you a good witch or a bad witch?”   Unfortunately, the whole world sees “witch” as a dirty word.   I think there is something to be said for the pagans/witches of today. Most of them strive to be “good” witches, but of course there are always the “bad” ones…

Custom Candles

Well, I’ve gotten some interest in the candles I make recently so I wanted to show some that we keep on stock.   These are our Dragon’s Blood/Patchouli candles, always black. These are Lemon/Patchouli and they are a bit on the yellow side, kind of a warm cream color. You would not believe how awesome…
