Celestial February: Snow and Sunset from the Heavens

Finally! A real Snow Day. Today was much more than a “dusting” – roads were declared slick and dangerous, schools were canceled, and I stayed home from work to avoid the mess. I’ll make it up tomorrow. I was able to able to get some nice winter shots on my walk to the nearby creek…

A Blessed Imbolc

Busy. Busy. Busy. That’s what I’ve been yesterday, today, and will be tomorrow. It’s the sabbat of Imbolc – a celebration of reawakening and renewal; hence a good time for early “spring cleaning.”I spent the late afternoon into most of last night rearranging my furniture and cleaning in my bedroom. I gave it a makeover,…

The Month for Dreaming

“January is the month for dreaming.” – Jean Hersey I came across this quote a couple years ago and thought it really fit. I’ve been “dreaming” all this month, as I usually do in January, but it’s especially significant and the focus this year. This is the most positive, most hopeful mindset I’ve been in…

Wheel of Fortune for New Year's

A couple weeks ago I opened a fortuneless fortune cookie. At first I thought it was probably considered a “bad omen”, but after looking it up online, it’s apparently the opposite. Getting a fortuneless fortune cookie is supposed to be good luck because you are “owed a fortune” and something good is supposed to happen…

Another Heartbreak for the End of the Year

I don’t even know how to start this post.  I don’t want to start it, for one thing. With what has happened in the past few weeks, I have lost the desire to write rather than being compelled to it.  It’s a matter of having so much to say and so little emotional strength left…

November Sights, Thoughts and Weird Feelings

One of the most terrifying things about life is how fast time flies.  It’s scary to think about how it feels like 2019 just recently got here and we’re already at the tail end of November.It scares me even more knowing that every year seems to go by quicker and quicker, and every late December…

My Lunch and Afternoon at Grogg’s Green Barn

I’m backtracking a bit for this blog post; the later half of last week was so busy, I didn’t get a chance to do a blog on my prize lunch at Grogg’s Green Barn. It was last Thursday – a gray, overcast October afternoon-turned-autumn monsoon with yet another heavy rainstorm for the year. But before the downpour hit, I had a nice time out; I really enjoyed my lunch

Full Moon Oracle, More Synchronicities & A Word About Intuition

Another 13th. Another full moon. Another card reading. If I’m starting to sound like a broken record, I apologize. There are things in this post I did not want to ramble on about again either. I’m downing some caffeine and forcing myself to write up this blog. I am so out of it. I feel…

Pumpkin Patch and a Treat: Apple Pumpkin Bundt Cake

The feeling of fall has truly settled in. Not with the foliage colors yet, but the mornings and nights are chilly now. Rain gives a ghostly, misty haze. The days become more quiet outside and the ominous sound of emergency sirens more prevalent against a hushed nature. It is October in Oklahoma. Currently it is…

Early Autumn Enchantment: The Story of Persephone and Hades

The trees are slowly starting to turn, pumpkins are making their appearance around town, and Halloween decor is spookingly-gracing the aisles of all the stores. This cusp period of Mabon and the New Moon is my cue to write a magickal blog on my favorite mythological duo – the Lord and Lady of the Underworld…
