Briar Cottage > Selling Witchcraft

Posted Stacey on 07 October 2012 - 05:29 AM

So lately I've been coming across a theme on the internet with bloggers about the trend of witchcraft, the selling of witchy products and the seemingly endless lot of "witches" who are copying other witches to try and make a buck. This...

Jaesin's Ramblings > Magic - The Essence of the Forest

Posted Jaesin on 23 February 2016 - 11:11 AM

Magic - The Essence of the Forest  
All to often, it is thought that "magic" is something that a witch does to manifest one's desires. While that be be a 'small' part of what magic is, there is much more to it.  
Magic in an of itself is it's own essence. It is void of dualities such as positive and negative, black and white, etc. it is the raw...

Tuuli's Blog > Sphere of Jupiter: The Ritual

Posted Tuuli on 11 May 2015 - 10:12 PM

Hilariously, my Jupiter rite was in a lot of ways, a bust. I'm used to spirit communication, I've done goetic conjurations and though I'm a bit out of practice I feel like all my psychic centers are open and healthy...I guess I was expecting...More? I feel the Jupiter current in my sphere of influence, but It's incredibly subtle...

So I preformed the Jup...

ArcticWitch's Blog > The bitch about being a witch

Posted ArcticWitch on 08 May 2015 - 03:13 PM

You can see every glass ceiling from here to eternity. You know what each layer represents, and what will happen when you start bumping up against each one. You know you will break through them. You sometimes struggle to be patient, to understand that the rewards on the other side of that ceiling not only have to be earned, but will only be fully appre...

Ravenshaw's Blog > Spring in the Foothills

Posted Ravenshaw on 16 March 2015 - 03:11 AM

It seems that spring is finally here. Small green shoots are beginning, the sun is setting later and later, the sun is warm and the air is crisp, and I am so happy about it. While this winter was incredibly valuable for my mind and spirit, I am thrilled to be out of the cold darkness and into the fresh budding world.

Today I was walking my dog down a qui...

Christine's Blog > That pesky water-horse

Posted Christine on 15 January 2015 - 04:38 AM

This time of year, which around here is the harshest, is the part when I feel closest to death. Not to my own personal death, nor to the dead ancestors, but to death. Not to the crazed struggle for life that is dying, nor to the shuffled coil, but to death. I feel close to the raw and stinky fact of death at this time of every year, and it's because of th...

Ravenshaw's Blog > Lessons learned this year

Posted Ravenshaw on 31 October 2014 - 01:02 AM

Sometimes it's better to be alone.

Trust yourself and your instincts.

It's ok to let your guard down...sometimes.

Never underestimate the power of a shield.

Keep going, even if it feels like torture.

A dog really is man's best friend.

When in doubt, go outside.

Don't be afraid of change.

Learn from the darkness, its lessons are valuable.

Do not b...

Christine's Blog > From the Springtime

Posted Christine on 19 November 2015 - 05:24 PM

Bee bread, of bees' knees;
The boule of sticky gold cooked
So gently in the house of bees.
Bake it, don't burn it,
Sisters together turn it
In the house that is oven,
In the house that is alembic,
Stir the gold and bake it dry.
Dry the golden ball of bee bread, brother bees.

The sun is shining, lift your head,
Wash your eyes in blue, in tears,
Fill your...

Ravenshaw's Blog > Meeting the lady in the storm

Posted Ravenshaw on 15 June 2015 - 03:48 AM

This evening has been riddled with a crazy ass thunderstorm, which hung right over my village which resides on a hill top. We catch some bad storms but this one was insane, thunder and lightning like crazy and rain pouring like a waterfall. I have felt energy from storms before, but not like this. These last few months have shown me that I have a growing...

ArcticWitch's Blog > Skygazing and Path Progression

Posted ArcticWitch on 29 April 2015 - 07:02 PM

Last night was the first balmy evening of the season, and I was able to sit outside without needing to wear a light jacket. The first activity I chose to engage in was an impromptu deep meditation session. After a while, I drifted back to this reality and allowed my eyes to focus on the world around me. A seagull practically grazed the roof of my house...

CailinRua's Blog > Lithomancy

Posted CailinRua on 20 April 2015 - 03:39 PM

So far this year has been super eventful, both on the personal front but also in my craft. My last blog was about a surprising new direction I was put in as a result of a new experiment, and that is something that continues to unfold in between everything else.

and then yesterday I was pointed toward something else that I had not given any thought to unt...

Christine's Blog > Scroop my Froufrou

Posted Christine on 24 January 2015 - 12:05 PM

On a lighter note, here's a thought I can blame on Gene Wolfe. You see, I was re-reading his New Sun stuff, and of course I realized that there was an obscure term I hadn't nailed down with a strong visual, so I wound up doing yet more research in antique fabrics in the middle of the night, again. I mean, as one does.

I want a taffeta chiton. Scroop is a...

hawkwind's Blog > Introspection of a Witch

Posted hawkwind on 01 December 2014 - 03:47 AM

This is my first entry in my new blog. I recently have been looking inside myself and really looking at my feelings and how it pertains to me as a person and a Witch. Many dark memories from my past I seem to dwell on,which is the thing that holds me back in many facets of my life. We learn valuable lessons from our pain and suffering but after these less...

ArcticWitch's Blog > The Graveyard

Posted ArcticWitch on 09 September 2014 - 07:28 PM

[This visit occurred in April, and marked my first graveyard experience since embracing my Path. ]

I've never felt pulled to a location before via digital information. The quest was simple: satisfy the inexplicable urge to collect some graveyard dirt while both the sun and moon were in Taurus. I had found an old cemetery during previous research that was...

Brave Enough to Burn > Cats and visitors

Posted Abhainn on 21 January 2011 - 03:30 AM

Two cats reside with me and my husband.

And I'm beginning to think we have visitors, as well.

I know that animals are better a detecting fairies, brownies, etc. And my two cats are peering very intensely at a certain spot in my closet. I got down on the floor next to Tigger, my fiery ginger tabby, and followed his line of vision to one of my skirts....
