If the Vatican had any sense, they would have made her pope.

See what happens when you don't have priestesses?

The Tattoo I'd Get, If I Had the Cojones

I know exactly what tattoo I'd get, if I had the cojones to do it.

Well, tattoos.

For shockingly close on 50 years now, I've been godsman to Him of the Horns. They've been good years, even the bad ones, hard but good.

So I'd wear the horn for Him: ram's horns, I think, curling elegantly over and around the ears, as the Horned Apollo (Apollôn Karneîos) wears so jauntily on this silver didrachma (circa 250-225 BCE) from Kyrene in North Africa, as Two-Horned Alexander wore as Son of Ammon. As god, they say, so priest.

In a pagan world, I'd have done this long since. For now, I'll bide the while. I'm planning to make it (be warned) to 113, so there's plenty of time. I'll need something to look forward to when I'm 85, after all, and well beyond caring what they think.

Remember to BREATHE: Moon in Virgo Dec. 26-28

Mama Moon enters the efficient, chatty sign of Virgo the Virgin on Dec. 26 at 9:50 am until Dec. 28.

This may be a challenging Moon-Time to get your point across which could lead to frustration. Remember to release, release, release. With Moon trine Saturn (Ruling Planet of Capricorn) patience will be at your fingertips, but it may be a stretch to draw upon your inner mindful-ness so jus remember to BREATHE.

The King is Dead

The Yule Log is ash now, its ancient work accomplished.

I kneel on the hearth and sift the ash with my fingers, seeking the last charred remnants.

From such bits of last year's Log, I kindled this fire on Midwinter's Eve. Stalwart, this Yule's Log burned for nearly two full days.

I knew the tree that it came from. Five years ago, on Midsummer's Day, a massive line of thunderstorms crashed through the city, leaving hundreds of broken trees in its wake. From one such, an elegant silver maple across the street—seventy-five years old, if a day—this log was cut. Since when it has dried on the front porch, awaiting its sacred work.

I close the damper and wrap the handful of charcoal in an old, stained piece of silk, stowing the packet in a canvas bag that once held brown basmati rice. There on the back stairs, beneath the bronze Green Man mask, the fragments will await next Yule, warding the house until then (it is said) from fire and lightning-strike.
