i had a meditation with the culmination of meeting the sky goddess and the earth god. that is what they named themselves. it was amazing and magical.

i have been enamoured with these two beings since i met them the other night.

i imagine the goddess to be a moon goddess, star goddess, air goddess.

i imagine the god to be a vegetation god, wild god, green man.

this is exciting.

candle magic

so i dressed a candle and lit it -

and a little piece of herb caught fire, but went out. the candle is still lit.

what sort of sign (if any) can this be?

i am trying to look up this sort of thing. hmm.

This recipe sounds so awesome to me. Living in an urban beach environment I don’t get the chance to experience many different types of trees and woods. I love the smell of the forest and the magic it hides. I wish I had access to bits of these woods to make some of this.

Native People of California

The Tongva (pronounced /ˈtɒŋvə/ TONG-və) are a Native American people who inhabited the area in and around Los Angeles, California, before the arrival of Europeans. Tongva means "people of the earth" in the Tongva language, a language in the Uto-Aztecan family. The Tongva are also sometimes referred to as the Gabrieleño/Tongva (often written "Gabrieleno/Tongva") or Gabrielino/Tongva tribe. Following the Spanish custom of naming local tribes after nearby missions, they were called the Gabrieleño, Gabrielino, or San Gabrieleño in reference to Mission San Gabriel Arcangel.

I haven't read much of this yet, but I did peruse a few pages. Looks pretty interesting. I hope it gives me some insight about the people who lived in this area!

punk rock witch

I started this journal a long time ago with a different intent. I want to bring it back.

first a bit about me:

I was punk rock before I was a witch. I was introduced to Wicca by my best friend in high school, Cindy. After getting my hands on every book and website I could find I searched for a coven and found one. I was dedicated into the coven in Janurary 2000.

After many years with the coven, I found myself more busy with my growing toddler and being a single mother and working. My spiritual side had to be put on the back burner. I would still keep up with coven activities and read any book on witchcraft and spell craft.

In 2006 I decided to quit my dead-end job, move back in with my parents (who hate ANYTHING Pagan), and go back to school in the medical field. I put my beloved altar supplies and books into storage. I would sneak books into the room I shared with my now 10 year old son. At night I would curl into a book in my bed when I wasn’t reading my school books.

Now I am graduated and finishing my advanced schooling in a month. I moved back into my own house and have set up “shop” in my office/sewing room. I’ve claimed the closet as my own space. I bought a small table to serve as my working space and today dedicated that spot for ME…. and whomever comes to visit me!

I dedicate Mondays as work nights.

I promise to keep to the path.

I want my path to be well worn.
