The title of this post is one of my favourite euphemisms for the last great journey, cruising the cosmos, biting the dust, passing over, going to the next room, going behind the veil, throwing a seven, buying the farm, kicking the bucket, following the silver cord, departing, dying. I’m inclined to think that each […]Read More Pushing Up Daisies
Please note that these days do not run consecutively. Day 1 Morning is often a time when people absorb news, they may read the paper or if they are not quite that antiquated they watch the news, listen to the news on the radio, check the news online or get their ‘news’ from social media. […]Read More 2 Days in the Life of an Empath
Do you keep a dream diary? Do you try to interpret your dreams? If so what methods do you use? Do you make decisions based on your dreams? When I was a teenager in the 90’s it was rather fashionable to have a dream dictionary. I was given one as a present and read it both to […]Read More Do Dreams Come True?
Today, dear readers I would like to share with you some of my loves, best friends, anti-depressants, sleep-aids, holiday companions and muses. I am talking about books. Yes, I am a bibliophile. I have many favourite books that I go back to over and over again. Being a witch, and therefore having an interest in […]Read More Witchy Fiction
Yes goodbye and good riddance Mercury Retrograde. I will admit I am no astronomer or astrologer and I only know about the Mercury Retrograde from my clever friends on Instagram (thank you all, once again by the way). Had I not been informed of this astronomic phenomenon however, I would have not understood the odd […]Read More Mercury Retrograde. Retrograde Me.
Since re-embarking on my spiritual quest, my destiny as a witch (or whatever I am calling it today) I have had a few moments when I re-remember things that I knew a long time ago, or did a long time ago perhaps even without knowing why and seeing things that I have always taken for […]Read More Re-remembering
I wasn’t sure I needed a wand but I had read the section on wands in Judika Illes The Element Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells with an interested and open mind (yes I have talked about this fantastic book before and will again I’m sure…I really love it!). I read about the different types of wands, buying […]Read More Wands and White Springs
To my mind being a witch and doing everything I can to help and protect planet Earth; giving mumma nature as much help and protection as I can go hand in hand. Although I do not call myself a ‘Green Witch’; I am more eclectic. I do feel a strong affinity with nature. I talk […]Read More Green Witchery
Some stereotypes of witches I really can’t get on board with; green skin, warty noses, being generally evil in nature. Yes those stereotypes as well as being annoying and/or offensive are quite probably a deliberate attempt to both put women off accessing their power through witchcraft and to demonise those that do. However, the cackling […]Read More I am a Cackling Witch
As a re-awakening witch some aspects of the craft are totally new to me. Imbolc is one of them so I freely admit I have been feeling a little lost and inferior as my new community of friends and fellow witches on social media share Imbolc greetings and show their wonderful altars, ritual baths, mojo […]Read More Obligatory Imbolc Post
I am lucky, I live close to a magical place and can visit often. You may have heard of it, you may not, it is the West Kennet Long Barrow. It’s name smacks of modernity and is in my opinion a bit of a misnomer. A barrow to me says burial place, tomb or tumuli. […]Read More Visiting the Goddess
This is a journal of my awakening. I am reconnecting to what I’ve always known I should be but perhaps didn’t really have a name for. I am a witch. Thanks to a big kick up the backside in the form of ‘Witch’ by Lisa Lister, passed to me by my sister and following a […]Read More Welcome and thank you for popping by!
At least, I want to be. So for me the first step on my witchy journey, before I start thinking about Altars, Spells and Tarot is to turn myself into my own sacred space. This for me means connection, strength, purity, physical and mental wellbeing so it requires me giving up a few things and […]Read More I am my own Sacred Space…nearly
