To be a Witch
Blessing the all, the part, and the one.
By drawing the moon, and calling the sun.
... With essential oils that serve to aid.
Witching tools that are best handmade.
By invoking the spirits that divine your request.
Using herbs and flowers previously blessed.
The strength of a tree,
The purity of water.
The heart of a flame, the light of your alter.
By focusing your thoughts and cleansing your mind.
Crystals and stones, your spell to bind.
Contemplate your request with deep meditation.
Mix well alchemist, using visualisation.
Summon the tarot, the bones, the runes.
Chant in rhyme and simple tunes.
Do not spell for un-earned riches.
It is not the way of Pagan witches.
Spell for need and not for fun.
Do what ye will... But harm ye none.
If your spell is just and your conscience is free.
And this is your will, So mote it be.

I'm really ashamed of myself.... I've been whining.
Now I'm a really easy going person, but I find that if you make me drive long distances... to a place I've never been... when I get out of the car I start whining... and worse... I can hear my self whining and I CAN'T STOP!
I'm not good with driving distances to begin with... I get panic attacks. But when it's somewhere I haven't been too before it's even worse.
I had to go up to some creepy dirt town by Atlantic city, and instead of being thrilled with the adventure... I was having panic attacks, and then the whining began!
And this all could have been avoided if I just said NO! NO, I'm not going to your party! NO, I'm not driving 2 hours to meet with you all!!! NO, NO, NO!!!!
My friend Mike says I have to be forced to socialize... and that's true. I'm much happier in my house, in my town, in my own little world.
And socializing at home is PERFECT!!! I don't have a problem socializing if you COME TO MY HOUSE!!! Or at least my TOWN!!! But going 2 hours to socialize with people I don't know... uh uh, not going to happen again!!!!
And yes, I am typing this while putting my lower lip out, pouting and stamping my foot.... cope!
And it's all my fault, because I wanted to get out and socialize, but I didn't realize the amount of time and driving it would cost me.
I need to find friends closer to me!!!!
I wanted to join the Star Trek club to get out and have fun, and meet new people... but can it please be closer to home? Now I'm stuck! I'm such a smuck!!!!!

SPELL FOR A PEACEFUL HOME
Gather freshly cut parsley and place it in a pan of water. Let it soak for nine minutes,
and then sprinkle the water throughout the house while visualizing a calm environment.
Peace will be restored.
A MAGIC CLEANSING CHANT
Uphold the rules of the Wiccan Rede.
Be high in spirit ye shall succeed.
Power of the Elements Five,
Will help Mother Nature stay alive.
From grains of Earth to the moving Air.
Past the burning Fire that magic flares.
Flow with Water, lakes, and streams;
Around the Spirit's aura and dreams.
SPELL TO HONOR YOUR HOUSEHOLD SPIRITS
When presenting your house spirits with offerings of incense,
candles or what not you can say this little chant:
"Wraith of the house, Take heart and live,
To every chamber This light I give,
To every corner This breath I send
Approve and favor my willing hand."
Incense: 1 tablespoon pine needles 1 tablespoon juniper 1 tablespoon cedar
Make sure all ingredients are completely dry. Grind ingredients together and burn on charcoal.
Spirits of the corners,
Winds of the quarters,
You who stand watching,
And you who hear my voice,
Guard well my home tonight

Listen to the words of the Great Mother;
she who of old was also called among men
Artemis, Astarte, Athene, Dione, Melusine,
Aphrodite, Cerridwen, Cybele, Arianrhod,
Isis, Dana, Bride
and by many other names:
Whenever ye have need of anything,
once in the month, and better it be when the moon is full,
then shall ye assemble in some secret place
and adore the spirit of me,
who am Queen of all the witches.
There shall ye assemble,
ye who are fain to learn all sorcery,
yet have not won its deepest secrets;
to these will I teach things that are yet unknown.
And ye shall be free from slavery;
and as a sign that ye be really free,
ye shall be naked in your rites;
and ye shall dance, sing, feast,
make music and love,
all in my praise.
For mine is the ecstasy of the spirit,
and mine also is joy on earth;
for my law is love unto all beings.
Keep pure your highest ideal;
strive ever towards it;
let naught stop you or turn you aside.
For mine is the secret door
which opens upon the Land of Youth,
and mine is the cup of the wine of life,
and the Cauldron of Cerridwen,
which is the Holy Grail of immortality.
I am the Gracious Goddess,
who gives the gift of joy unto the heart of man.
Upon earth, I give the knowledge of the spirit eternal;
and beyond death, I give peace and freedom
and reunion with those who have gone before.
Nor do I demand aught in sacrifice;
I am the Mother of all living,
and my love is poured out upon the earth.
Hear ye the words of the Star Goddess;
she in the dust of whose feet are the hosts of heaven,
and whose body encircles the Universe.
I who am the beauty of the green earth,
and the white Moon among the stars,
and the mystery of the waters,
and the desire of the heart of man,
call unto thy soul.
Arise, and come unto me.
For I am the soul of nature, who gives life to the universe.
From me all things proceed,
and unto me all things must return;
and before my face, beloved of Gods and of men,
let thine innermost divine self be enfolded in the rapture of the infinite.
Let my worship be within the heart that rejoiceth;
all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals.
And therefore let there be beauty and strength,
power and compassion, honour and humility,
mirth and reverence within you.
And thou who thinkest to seek for me,
know thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not
unless thou knowest the mystery;
that if that which thou seekest
thee findest not within thee,
thou wilt never find it without thee.
I have been with thee from the beginning;
and I am that which is attained
at the end of desire.

In celebration of spring/summer... why not use beach towels in your bathroom! The colors are fun and sunny!
Flip Flop cookies for summer fun! All you need is some decorating icing!
Put cupcake liners over your drinks to keep insects out!
Perfect summer drink! Blend 1 can frozen limeade, 1 cup rum, 1/2 can sprite, 2 cups frozen strawberries, and muddle with mint and the pulp of two limes.
Didn't have a chance to use all of your fresh herbs? Freeze them in ice-cube trays with water or chicken broth to use later.. prevents wastage and spoilage

As Spring reaches its midpoint, night and day stand in perfect balance, with light on the increase. The young Sun God now celebrates a hierogamy (sacred marriage) with the young Maiden Goddess, who conceives. In nine months, she will again become the Great Mother. It is a time of great fertility, new growth, and newborn animals.
The next full moon (a time of increased births) is called the Ostara and is sacred to Eostre the Saxon Lunar Goddess of fertility (from whence we get the word estrogen, whose two symbols were the egg and the rabbit.
The Christian religion adopted these emblems for Easter which is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. The theme of the conception of the Goddess was adapted as the Feast of the Annunciation, occurring on the alternative fixed calendar date of March 25 Old Lady Day, the earlier date of the equinox. Lady Day may also refer to other goddesses (such as Venus and Aphrodite), many of whom have festivals celebrated at this time.
Leafy green vegetables, Dairy foods, Nuts such as Pumpkin, Sunflower and Pine. Flower Dishes and Sprouts.
Herbs and Flowers:
Daffodil, Jonquils, Woodruff, Violet, Gorse, Olive, Peony, Iris, Narcissus and all spring flowers.
Jasmine, Rose, Strawberry, Floral of any type.
Planting seeds or starting a Magickal Herb Garden. Taking a long walk in nature with no intent other than reflecting on the Magick of nature and our Great Mother and her bounty.

I've been going nuts to work outside!!! It's been such a mild winter, that the need to work outside is even worse then during a bad winter!
I painted all my flower pots, and they are just sitting inside, waiting for the warmer weather to come.
Matt comes home from school this week, so I'm make him come with me to get soil for the pots... I hate trying to carry them myself... so it's a perfect job for him when he's home on spring break!!! He doesn't know yet... so shhhhhhhhhh.... don't tell!!!
I want to open all my windows and do my spring cleaning, and cleansing of the house, but it's still not that time yet. Sooonnnnnnnn, my friends, soooooooonnnnnnn!
