Magic is happening.

Hello magical people! I have exciting news to share. I’ve been quiet for several moons now as I’ve been preoccupied with life, lessons, and consolidating. I’ve been working on projects and trying to get my own website up and running. Well, hard work is beginning to manifest wonderful things as I now have two beautiful…

Desideratum

Grand things are coming this Autumn! I gather I’ll be a bit quiet on the blog for a while as I focus my energies on a new project to be revealed in time. Patience, my darlings. Updates for the shop will continue to be posted on facebook and in the newsletter.

The Lore of Hagstones

I braided strand over strand until my finger tips burned with the blood rising to the surface. I then strung beads and knotted keys and holed stones onto the long cords for many hours, days and nights. When a charm was finished I birthed it into it’s knew life and purpose by passing it over…

A Black Cat’s Crossing

Beneath the dark moon I separated flesh and fur from the bones of a cat. My love found her washed up on the dam one morning after the flood waters began to recede. He came to find me to inform me of his discovery and as any dutiful little witch would I grabbed a bucket…

A Full Moon Cleansing

Tuesday I had the entire day off work and spent it preparing for the full moon workings I had planned that evening. I paid a visit to my hawthorn and left an offering for her of milk and a dried rose that smelled like honey. I then went off to collect pine needles for my bath later…

The Scar

This last trip we took to Highland County, Virginia was tinged with sadness. It seemed whenever we turned our heads we looked upon destruction.This is my beloved mountain land. Once a dense, lush forest stood here not but a year ago. It is now a gaping, bloody scar thanks to human fear and greed. The worse part,…

spiders in my eyes

Perhaps they are simply trying to get your attention. That was Morgan’s suggestion when I spoke of the three bluebirds and three blue herons I’d seen lately. I had the feeling there was more of a message from spirit in the sightings than simply beauty. As soon as Morgan uttered those words I knew it was silly of me…

These dark days…

when I’m enjoying my own company at home I sit in my rocking-chair to warm by the wood-burning heater. I stay entertained by its odd grunts, hisses and shifting sounds of the fire and wood within it; it is very much a live creature of it’s own kind. Usually I will drink a cup of chai and allow Bastian to…

Ten of Swords

I was warned… but I became bewitched by the “myriad of bright sparkling lights that dazzle and enchant in the ripples…” I did not scry the surface before I plunged heedlessly “into the undertow, cross currants, and tangle of weeds.” Midwinter is arriving swiftly; my pledge is nearing it’s completion. It can’t get here fast enough for…

the devil & the moon

Originally posted on love by the moon:
? Last night my dreams were flooded with owls and I was back in the wooded of the mountains. I saw a shadow there, a pointy elongated shadow that startled me. To those I did tell of my encounter, I said that I sensed no purpose.. just a…

the reaper

A year ago on the night of June 23, I awoke from my dreams and had the terrifying experience of being visited by a very dark, old lady who suddenly appeared out in the hall outside my bedroom door. Her face was mostly hidden in the shadow of her hooded cloak but I remember her…
