Wow saw my description and realized how long it's been since I updated it. I'll just make the bday changes for now and update everything else as I can. LOVES <3 Just a couple of things you really need to know. I'm a girl, turned 21 in June. I'm a green witch (don't know what that is? ask) NOT wiccan, there is a difference. I'm Bi. If any of these things really bother you then you really should not follow me. They are a part of me and I don't hide them. I don't take my cues from TV shows on how to behave. Honestly I hardly watch any TV. I'm to busy living life to bother watching others pretend to. I am me. I speak my mind. When I love, I love with all my heart. I protect my friends and those I love.
As for following back. No, I do not always follow back. If I see something on your blog that catches my eye, chances are I will follow you. Please feel free to ask me to look. Oh an no I don't bite so feel free to leave a message.

The Essentials of Cord Magick

The Essentials of Cord Magick

For cord magick you will need a cord, or cingulum as it is sometimes called, that is nine feet long (three times three; the perennial magick number) and is the color appropriate to the magickal working.
 
 

Herbal Magickal Correspondences

Herbal Magickal Correspondences

The power behind herb magic is formless, shapeless, eternal. It doesn’t care whether you call on it in the name of a Witch Goddess or the Virgin Mary - or tap it within no religious framework at all. It is always there, present in abundance no matter where we are or where we travel in the universe.
 
 

Nature Magic

Nature Spirit Magick

Each plant, animal, rock, or other entity has a spirit (consciousness resonance matrix).  These spirits can join together in a hive-mind as a spirit of an area.  Nature spirits include real biological intelligences, are psychically powerful, and much less abstract and controllable than the elementals that many magical people who perform all of their rituals indoors are familiar with.  They can be extremely powerful allies.  It is possible to sense nature spirits, to determine if they are receptive to a ritual planned, and to have them actively participate in magical workings, if they are. 

 
 

Ostara ~ March 20

Ostara ~ March 20

What is Ostara? *

"This is the time of the Spring’s return; the joyful time, the seedtime, when life bursts forth from the Earth and the chains of winter are broken. Light and dark are equal; it is a time of balance, when all the elements within us must be brought into a new harmony. The Prince of the Sun stretches out his hand, and Kore, the Dark Maiden, returns from the Land of the Dead, cloaked in fresh rain, with the sweet scent of desire on her breath. Where They step, the wild flowers appear; as They dance, despair turns to hope, sorrow to joy, want to abundance. May our hearts open with the spring! Blessed Be!" 

 
 

How to Pronounce the Sabbats

How to Pronounce the Sabbats

Samhain (31 Oct) — Irish Gaelic for “summer’s end.” The standard Irish pronunciation is “sow-in” with the “ow” like in “cow.” Other pronunciations that follow with the many Gaelic dialects include ”sow-een” “shahvin” “sowin” (with “ow” like in “glow”). The Scots Gaelic spelling is “Samhuin” or “Samhuinn.” There is no linguistic foundation for saying this word “samhane” the way it might look if it were English. When in doubt, just say “Hallows” or even “Hallowe’en.”

Yule (21 Dec) — Norse for “wheel.” It’s pretty much
pronounced just like it looks, although if you want to make a stab at a Scandinavian sound, it’ll be more like “yool” and less like “yewl.” This is the winter solstice.

Imbolg/Imbolc (1 Feb) — Irish Gaelic for “in the belly.”
Pronounce this one “IM-bullug” or “IM-bulk” with a guttural “k” on the end. Other names include Candlemas; Brighid (pronounced “breed”), who is the Irish goddess whose festival this is; and Oimelc (pronounced EE-mulk), which means “ewe’s milk” in Scots Gaelic.

Ostara (21 Mar) — Saxon name for a maiden goddess of spring, loosely connected to Astarte and Ishtar. This one’s easy — ”o-STAHR-uh.” Other names include Eostre (say “OHS-truh” or ”EST-truh”). This is the spring equinox.

Beltane/Bealtaine (30 April/ 1 May) — Irish Gaelic for either “fires of Bel” or “bright fires.” If you want to try it in Gaelic, you can say “bee-YAWL-tinnuh” or “BELL-tinnuh.” Unlike Samhain, this word can within the linguistic structure of its language of origin be pronounced like it looks — “BELL-tane” — without totally abandoning its original construction. Other names are Walpurgisnacht (vawl-PUR-gis-nahkt) and May Day.

Litha (21 Jun) — Norse or Anglo-Saxon for “longest day.” You can say this one just like it looks, or you can try for a Scandinavian sound and say “leetha” with the “th” more like a “t.” This is the summer solstice.

Lughnasadh/Lunasa or Lammas (1 Aug) — The first is Irish Gaelic for “festival of Lugh” (a major Irish deity); the second is Anglo-Saxon for “festival of the loaves” (“hlaf-mass”). Don’t panic at that spelling; the second (which is modern Irish as opposed to old Irish) tells you all you need to know. Say “LOO-nah-sah.” (Some people maintain that the Scots dialect says it “LOO-nah-soo.”) Lammas is just like it looks, “LAH-mus.”

Mabon (21 Sep) — This is believed to be a form of the Welsh word for “son.” Therefore, it would probably be pronounced “MA-bon” with the “a” like in “mass.” However, most Wiccans and pagans say ”MAY-bon.” This is the autumn equinox.

Being a solitary Witch does not mean that you have to do everything alone. I myself have been a member of a coven and practiced on my own as well, finding that not everyone is meant to perform rituals and works of magic with others. Sure, sometimes it is nice to be joined with others of your own faith. But being a part of a coven is not for everyone.

I just recently read Peg Aloi’s article Leaves of Gold: Finding Those Rare Occult Books here on the Witches’ Voice again, and there’s always one statement she makes that pops out to me: “Pagans like books.” Well, I can’t really deny that that statement definitely applies to me. Even before I came to Wicca, I loved books. I’d always beg my parents for a trip to Barnes and Noble or whatever bookstore we happened to be close to. I kept flashlights and little book lights in my room and would spend many a good night staying up late reading. And I remember (very fondly) enjoying Shakespeare’s plays at the tender age of fourteen, while many of my classmates couldn’t get past the archaic language or understand any of what was going on. 

 
 

The Lost Tools of the Witch

When you ask your average neo-Pagan or Wiccan what tools are on their altar (or are important to their craft) , you typically get the following list: athame, wand, pentacle, chalice, besom, cauldron, candles, incense, sometimes herbs and stones, sometimes a “white-handled knife” or boline. That’s about it though. A great number of the tools are things that would have been common household implements during the early-Modern Witchcraft trials. Every household needed a cup, a knife, a pot, a broom and firelight to see by (whether by candles or an oil lamp) . It’s interesting how the common daily tools became associated with witchcraft (it also made it exceedingly easy to tell the magistrate you suspected your neighbor of witchery and for “proof” of said witchery to be found) .

Religion has always been a sensitive subject. Religious conflicts and disagreements have a long and bloody history. I’ve heard it said that a belief system couldn’t be a true religion unless someone has died in its name. And while martyrdom is a powerful way to express the ultimate conviction for a cause, what does that say about human tolerance and our inability to coexist with people who do not believe the same things as us? I have many opinions on this subject, and I’d like to believe that they are a lovely shade of grey, instead of the black and white that religion usually is. I’ll talk about my views of religion in the abstract, how Wicca fits in, and then why I don’t believe that science in any way discredits our faith.

 
 

Being Green As a Green Witch

Everyone knows that in pretty much again Pagan circle you enter we are generally environmentally minded people. For me, as a green witch, being green means a lot. I’m very connected with my environment (or at least I was and I am now reforging that relationship with the earth), and I’ve always been an environmentally minded person. So when I found this blog called Big Green Head through Seededbuzz I just had to write about it. This blogger’s post is called 8 Ways to Be Green This Fall, but I wanted to write about being green from a green witch’s point of view.

Detoxing the Green Witch way

Detoxing the Green Witch wayWritten by The Green Witch   

We want our body to cope with whatever we want to do yet we overload it with toxins, alcohol, cigarettes and junk food – not surprising that a lot of us are quite unhealthy. Every now and then, we need to help the body do what it needs to do by helping it to get rid of the build-up of toxins and have a good cleanout so to speak!

We want our body to cope with whatever we want to do yet we overload it with toxins, alcohol, cigarettes and junk food – not surprising that a lot of us are quite unhealthy. Every now and then, we need to help the body do what it needs to do by helping it to get rid of the build-up of toxins and have a good cleanout so to speak!

The liver is one of our major organs, without which we would die. Its job is to to detoxify the body, getting rid of all the rubbish from our diet, whether processing our excessive alcohol binge or the rubbish we eat on a day-to-day basis; that is without toxins we may take in from our environment. If you feel lethargic or tired all the time, chances are you just need to refresh your body a little. If you can make a few simple changes to your daily life, then you will become generally healthier. We all know we should drink more filtered water, eat more fruit and vegetables, exercise more, reduce caffeine and alcohol intake and cut out the junk…but do we do it?? So here are some simple pointers that can assist the body to glow with health, and if your internal organs work more efficiently, then this will reflect in a more glowing complexion; your skin is your largest organ and your internal health is reflected on the outside. Your body is like a car engine; if all the parts are clean and well-oiled, then all works, but if no attention is paid to it, something will break down…your body is no different. Detoxing can help keep your engine running properly.
