  1. I have to say to accept your failings as graciously as your successes. Learning is what we are here to do....that is our job. We will mess up, we will do stuff wrong and think wrong and be wrong a lot of times. But, what I've learned is not to beat myself up over it. I'm still a work in progress and since I'm a believer in Fate, I'm evolving exactly as I should be....thanks to the Gods. Relax, enjoy the ride and get comfy....hopefully, we are all gonna be here for awhile, so get used to your own skin and revel in your own glory.... :)
  2. Nothing witchy about me....I cuss alot....does that count? :censored:
  3. I love the scrub idea....very cool. Never thought of doing that, but so much better than those harsh, scratchy cans of crap at the store. Anything with essential oils is right up my alley. :) thanks for sharing.. :)
  4. Awesome post, Tana. Oddly enough, I was watching a PBS show about Stonehenge just a couple of weeks ago. The construction and precision of the whole site is unbelievable. When I first moved to England ages ago, my husband and I went there. I was awestruck. You can talk about and see videos and pictures of it, but it literally just takes your breath away when you are standing right in front of it. It is kind of embarrassing, because we think our current civilization is so advanced. I think it speaks for the wisdom and glory of the past, that people now, even with all their engineering and computers still are baffled by the place. Thanks for the wonderful article. :)
  5. I also read somewhere that curses and hexes were more potent if done when the Ms Luna is dark....our work is 'hidden' as she is hidden. I find that poetic and helpful. Personally, I don't slavishly follow the moon's waxing or waning for spells.I know some people who won't do a prosperity spell if they don't have a green candle. Ugh! I just don't see spellworking as that dictatorial.
  6. That's what I've always heard. I think it's funny how hard it is for me to dispel this belief, even though our times indicate women with shorter hair (especially older women, of which I am one), as much more 'with it' and stylish than those with longer hair.
  7. Firstly, please forgive this newbie if I've posted in the wrong area....mods, please move to correct locale if I'm not in the right place. Not sure if this has been addressed or not (I've looked through the forums and didn't see this exact question). My friend was asking me why I insisted on keeping my hair on the long side as she thought I would look much better with short hair. I explained that I was taught that a wise woman has power in her hair, and therefore, she should cut it carefully (on the full moon, as I was taught)...or not at all. She laughed and said that was baloney...:embarased: I still think I am correct...I was taught by some American Indian friends that a woman's hair, over time, gathers great medicine and energy...and that it needs to be kept longer to hold the energy. Cutting one's hair weakens the personal power a person has gained and experienced while the hair has been growing. I was told that our hair holds our experiences, just like the rest of our bodies....and there is great power in that. I welcome other's opinions and thoughts...again, apologies if posted in wrong area. Best to all, Blyss
