Spring Equinox

Spring Equinox is just around the corner. Check out my patreon site for a ritual to use or modify in your celebrations.

Free post – Spring Equinox Ritual

We spent the weekend making cookies, making paneer, and going to an Easter egg hunt. It was a fun weekend and the tween told me before she left what a great time it was. Winter is hard with being trapped in the house all the time. It was good to get out and do stuff.

I made some felt easter eggs and we’re going to use them in a Spring/Easter egg hunt this weekend with the little man and a few of his friends. We also filled plastic eggs with stickers for them to find. Stickers are very exciting these days to the almost 2 year old.

I already have the Easter baskets made up for the kids on Easter, and since we’re doing an egg hunt this weekend I am not going to do a gift or anything for the Equinox. I think we’ll do Easter baskets on Easter and we’ll make cookies and do a fun event for the Equinox.

Bright Blessing! May you have a joyous Spring Equinox!


Patreon posts

I’ve been writing over at my patreon account. You can click follow on my profile to have my posts sent to you or show up in your patreon dashboard if you wish. I have been writing a mix of free posts as well as paid ones.


I have three pledge tiers if you are interested in becoming a paid patron.

The first tier is $1.00 a month. This gets you access to my basic feed, there are usually a few posts in this tier. tier 1Every little bit helps, so I appreciate all my patreons. Here is a snippet from a post I have done that falls into this tier.

I know that the Kemetic Orthodox explains that the Egyptians were not particular about who was part of their faith. Their religion was open so anyone could worship. I get that, but in today’s culture where so many things are appropriated I have begun to look to the gods of Europe and my ancestors. This may be part of why Bast has been stepping back. She has been with me since I was a teen, but maybe our path is splitting. She will always be in my heart, but my focus has shifted and I think she and I are both ok with that. ~When the Goddess Knocks~


The second tier is $5.00 a month. This gets you at least 2 posts a month and I try to save my deeper posts and meditations for this tier.tier2 Here are a few parts of posts from that tier.

How am I going to work with this word? I will make sure to pause at the altar when I am in my temple space to meditate on it and accept the gifts I have had. By practicing gratitude for the things I am receiving it will remind me to be open for more gifts. We are too good at expecting something to look one way and miss what the universe does give to us. ~Word of the Year~

I examined the arrow for a few minutes before I began to gently pull it out. I had to massage it free of my skin and when it came out of my body it was slimy. I carefully placed it on the ground and then began to massage the wound. Bowls appeared in my spirit hands and I used them to collect the liquid that was pouring out of the wound. Once I felt I had collected all of that liquid I placed the bowls next to the arrow. ~Spiritual Arrows~

While the idea of the Great Rite sounds lovely, many people have a difficult time giving it the sense of reverence it should have. I have been in circles where people giggled through it, or where it was done in such a flat tone it had no sense of mystery. It’s been a rushed part of ritual or a silly part, but rarely has it felt sacred. ~As the Athame is to the male…~

The third tier is $30.00 a month. In this tier I do a monthly vlog and a tarot reading.  tier3

Each higher tier also grants you access to the rewards in the tier below.

There are many fantastic creators on Patreon. If you haven’t checked out the site and made an account yet I highly encourage it. Many have the option to follow them and read their free content, so it allows you a chance to see how you feel about their work.

I’ve been super busy at work and with the holidays so I haven’t had time to cross post my free content, but I will try to get some of those posts up here as well.

Spiritual housekeeping

My altar is a mess these days. I have been working at it often, and I admit, I’m terrible about cleaning up mid project. Last night I was looking at it and decided this weekend I would take care of it.

Samhain is always a busy time of year. I did an office cleansing, 2 house protection spells and then my own divination and spell work.  And in the spirit of being organized I actually wrote out one of the spells I did to put in my BOS. That is something else I am a bit terrible at, getting my notes collected and put into order in my book. Usually I just staple them together and put them in a binder, but I am making an effort to actually transcribe things nicely. Otherwise, years later I find random slips of paper with half a spell and I can’t remember what it was for.

I re-read my tarot reading from my birthday. I find it useful to go back and see what the cards were telling me and doing a check in with what is going on in the present. There was a note about going back to basics and starting at the beginning. So I wandered over to my bookshelf and let my fingers run over the spines of my books. One I had picked up in a thrift store and never read popped out.

So I plan to work on tarot with this book Around the Tarot in 78 Days.  I’ll be sure to review it when I am done and let you know how the exercises are.  Has anyone else read this one? What did you think of it?

Blessings of the harvest! The Wheel turns onwards. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that we are already in August. It seems like summer just started and here I am prepping for the fall.


Our mini sunflowers came in and are now decaying. We are waiting to see if we get any seeds to harvest. Our giant ones are still growing, currently they are about 5 feet tall and the flowers are starting to be created. We are very excited.

Sadly, the huge storm system killed our pepper plants. The pots were overflowing one night and we think the plants did not enjoy that much water.  My husband was able to harvest a large bowl of jalapenos, but I don’t think the last few on it will make it. We’ll see.

We were busy last night so I didn’t take any time in my temple space. We did play in the yard and garden a bit, so at least we took a moment to appreciate nature. I was talking with a friend about how hard it is to find the balance to do your spiritual practices with a little person. We have to learn to make magick in different ways. So we had cuddles, giggles and a baby running around the yard. That is a special magick that I will cherish while I have it. Too soon the baby will be too cool for hanging with mom. We get so wrapped up in the idea that holidays are about rituals and tarot and specific things. Sometimes celebrating means hugs and watching dragonflies flit about your yard.

I’ve been journaling every day through Sora’s 21 day challenge and am going to continue with it. I used to journal all the time, but fell out of the practice. I have found it a nice addition to my morning routine.

I completed another custom and have been selling a few tarot readings. If you are interested in either head on over to the shop to check out the listings. The shop will be closing for a week or two in August as I will be away.

I hope that your celebration was fun filled, whatever you were able to do. Bright Blessings as we head towards Fall!

June recap

My online 101 class starts soon. I was amazed at the response I had. I expected maybe 3 people, but I have 12! Awesome. I still have to load all the content and get it ready to send links out, but I will hopefully get that all done this week.

The little moon circles I was running took a break, but we’re going to start back up at the end of the month. It will be nice to connect in person again. I’ve been doing a bit or rearranging in the basement so I will hopefully make my temple space a bit more cozy.

June was so busy I didn’t get a chance to work on many craft projects. My Little Familiars did pretty well as soon as I launched them, I had several custom orders come through. I hope to get the foxes done this month and up in the store, along with some other kittens. I also have a few other plans in my brain, we’ll see how those work out. Right now it really comes down to having the time to sit and do things. The little man is teething again, and those back teeth are fighting him as they come in. Poor guy. So he needs many mommy snuggles.

I was lucky enough to take the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People training through my work. It was interesting to look at all the habits and see which I already did, which I needed to work on and which I needed to start. I am excited to put it all into practice. The most challenging part was creating my mission statement and looking at goals. I am terrible about goals and planning. I’ll have an idea and just go with it without sitting down to look at the full picture. Crafting my mission statement made me realize somethings were actually important to me that I hadn’t thought about. I’ve printed it and pinned it up in my cube to remind myself of all of this.

Litha was a non event really. I put an offering out, I did a full tarot reading for myself and that was it. I really do need to sit down and rework my Sabbat goals, they’ve gotten hazy with the little man involved.  I had some ideas written out, but then the computer died and I lost all that stuff. Time to redo and put them in my BOS.

I hope June was a good month for you all, are you ready to enjoy the summer?

Wicca 101!

Moon Magick at Work

The past few nights have been restless ones. The Moon energy has been calling and keeping several of us awake. This morning my son was determined to be up before our 5:30 am alarm. Caffiene for me today!

I have started to do a short 5 min flow of yoga in the morning and my son will sit with me and watch. Sometimes he does the “ha” breathing with me, sometimes he lifts his arms when I do, but usually he stands in front of me and snuggles in as I try to gently move around him. Sweet boy. He fills my heart.

I followed my intuition and packed up a mini altar to bring to work. I am blessed to work somewhere that I can be out and open about my faith. So I have set it up and it is in my line of sight, so all day long I will be reminded of my magick and the work I plan to do tonight.

Work Altar

I used my battery operated tea lights and have a selection of stones and crystals. I also brought in my Goddess Cards and we’ve been pulling them throughout the morning.

You can also see in the background a few of my digital downloads that are available in my etsy shop.


It is nice to have something just in my line of sight. Even as I type this I can see the orange of the altar cloth and the flickering light. Whenever I look at it fully I run through the short mantra I created. I am slowly building up the magick so that tonight when I do my ritual I will be energized.

I have been prepping to film my Wicca 101 course and that will be available online. It is free of charge, this is my service as a priestess. First I am re-arranging my sacred space so that the flow works better for me. I hope to get the large part of that done tonight and then next week start filming.

If you are interested or know someone who might wish to take a Wicca 101 please feel free to stop by my Facebook page to send me a message.

My Little Familiars are selling well, I have had several custom orders recently. I am so happy that people love them. Feel free to check out the two listed in the shop and let me know if you are interested in a custom.

And lastly a bit of love for other shops, I recently used my birthday money to get myself two pairs of earrings. I love them! One pair is leather and shaped to look like feathers and the other is a silver spiral.  You can check out their shops here and here. Woman in earrings

Happy Full Moon! Work your magick and have a wonderfully witchy day!
