Cats Know

Cats know.

People know that they know.

The wise know that they know that they know.

Witches know that they know that they know that they know.

Squirrels: My Writing Muse

Whenever I am blocked in my writing, I watch squirrels. I see them bouncing from tree to tree or chasing each other. At other times, one squirrel will dig up a nut that another had just buried. Once I witnessed a lone squirrel sneaking up on a curbside vendor to steal a nut-bar from her truck. Before the hapless vendor could react, this crafty squirrel leapt off the countertop and scampered off with its prize.

Squirrels inspire me with their activity. Rarely staying still in one place, they leap from one tree branch, grab another limb, and then jump to the ground. This reminds me of my free writing, when I jump from topic to topic. Working with my squirrel muses, I seldom know where they will take me in my writing or where I will finally end up.

A Witch's Practice of Prayer: It's within You (part 2)

When last we met, I quoted the last line from a version of the Charge of the Star Goddess:  “…if that which you seek, you do not find within yourself, you shall surely never find it without. For behold, I have been with you since the beginning, and I am That which is attained at the end of desire.” 

I find this last sentence so compelling because it reminds us of Who we are. Some people say we are spiritual beings having a human experience. I’m not sure I subscribe entirely to that position, given that I believe in a theology of immanence, that the Holy is here and now in this place and this time, wherever one is, and that the human experience is holy of itself, and doesn’t need a separate category of spiritual-ness to make it sacred…but that’s for a separate time.

Is it Necessary to Identify The Crystal Type?

This blog post is in answer to a great three part question about crystals with more than one prominent type. Specifically, 1. is there generally one type (configuration) through which a crystal prefers to connect? 2. How would it be best to identify this? and 3. Is it even necessary to identify the crystal type to connect? The question reads in full:

I have a lovely crystal which recently chose me that I am trying to identify its type so I know best how to relate and connect with it. It appears to be both an old soul and a several different types in one; it also contains cookeite. My question is two actually; when a crystal is a combination of multiple configurations/ types, is there generally one which it prefers to connect through and how would it be best to identify this? Second, is it necessary to even identify the configuration to best connect with a crystal? Thanks in advance to you and Venus for any assistance and guidance!

2017 was a rough year for many of us.  The year seemed to fly by and yet it seemed to crawl so slowly.
