The Force that is Karma

Before I even considered Wicca for myself, I was a staunch believer in Karma. I’d like to say, that I’d be a good person regardless of my beliefs, but I don’t know how much honesty would be in such a statement. I do believe in Karma, and I fear it. It is an authoritative powerContinue reading “The Force that is Karma”

A Wiccan on a Budget

Wicca, like many other things, unfortunately can require money. Setting up an Altar can go two ways: you either shop around and buy every little thing your heart desires, or you get creative in order to get what you need. I am not fortunate enough to be able to go on a Wiccan shopping spree,Continue reading “A Wiccan on a Budget”

The Firedrake and I

This month, on the 22nd, I had my initiation into Wicca. I am officially a Wiccan! The ceremony itself was so important to me. The night before I had my ceremony for the Winter Solstice, and that confirmed my belief that Wicca was the only choice for me. The initiation however, made me finally feelContinue reading “The Firedrake and I”

Learning as I go

One thing I am learning about practicing Wicca, is that it takes a great deal of devotion and motivation. There is no lazy way to be Wiccan. It’s not impossible, just each ritual takes a lot of work. There’s casting your circle, Charge of the Goddess, the ritual itself, and closing your circle. In additionContinue reading “Learning as I go”

Winter Solstice

The Solstice is a time of death and rebirth. We celebrate the death of the Sun King, and welcome his rebirth in the form of the Divine Child. The Solstice celebrations can range from December 20th until the 25th. Most celebrate on the 21st specifically. The full moon after the Solstice is considered the strongestContinue reading “Winter Solstice”

Mother to Mother: A Prayer to the Goddess

I have been struggling. In life, but more importantly, as a mother. I know that they say being a parent is the hardest job you will ever have; I just never dreamed that it would be so disappointing. I say this about me, most definitely NOT about my kids. They are amazing and I loveContinue reading “Mother to Mother: A Prayer to the Goddess”

Why Wicca

Women have always been oppressed and persecuted. There are very few societies that value women equally along with men. Very few in which women have complete autonomy over their lives and/or their bodies. It is times like this when we have no choice but to stick together. We need to stop the drama, stop bashingContinue reading “Why Wicca”

Views on Religion

I often get into religious debates with my coworkers, and something interesting has occurred to me: What if everyone is right? We witches have our Gods and/or Goddesses, Christians have their God,etc. But what if everyone is right in their beliefs? Perhaps, all the Gods and all the afterlife theories are correct. I pray toContinue reading “Views on Religion”

A Mother’s Acknowledgement

There are times, being a stay at home mom, in which I question my competency as a mother. I feel as though I am failing my children by keeping them home with me. That is what it is like to be Bipolar, to struggle and fail to keep your illness hidden from your children. This isContinue reading “A Mother’s Acknowledgement”

Journey So Far

In short, it has been interesting. I say this in half exasperation, half thrill. I absolutely love that there seems to be never-ending knowledge to collect about the religion and craft. I love to study, to learn new things and apply them to unique situations. The interesting part comes from the reactions of others aroundContinue reading “Journey So Far”
