Well, my oils didn't sell on ebay, so I am trying again with a different price and a different format. It costs me a lot more in ebay fees this way, but maybe it will make a difference.


I have offered the same oils on other pages as well, so to see them, click on "View seller's other items".

Let's see how this works.

Imbolc [03 Feb 2007|01:01pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

I'd really like to try to get this community going again.

:) Friendly Mod here, just wanted to see how everyone was doing. I'm thinking of starting polls, just so that we have a constant flow going in here. Or maybe a question of the week.

My coven (or soon to be) has been trying to work out an Esbat schedule so we can work on formulating a stronger bond.

What kinds of ideas do you all think we should consider?

And another thing, I'd like to know what everyone did for Imbolc. Post an entry, no need to comment. :)

Blessed be.

Spiritual Journals [30 Oct 2006|11:57pm]


Anyway, what kind of journals/diaries/notebooks do you own? What do you use them for? Am I the only dweeb who is just anal retentive when it come to things with paper? LOL. With that said, Happy Samhain, everyone.

History of Halloween [27 Oct 2006|11:32pm]

Did anyone else watch The History of Halloween on the History Channel? I found it rather interesting. There's a small 6-minute clip at History. com. It actually mentions Samhain and the way Christianity banned it, etc. The whole program, of course, is a bit more thorough. Just curious if anybody else saw it.

Edit: There will be a repeat of the program on Halloween, Tuesday, at 3 AM and 7 PM Eastern time. :)

A link for Newbies. [15 Sep 2006|01:05am]

I'm in a giving mood. I do a lot of my research on Sacred-Texts.com when I can't seem to find a book, so I felt like sharing this link on lists of good books to read if your are just beginning in Wicca.


Hope you find some use in it

Litha [20 Jun 2006|12:01pm]

[ mood | happy ]

As you all know, tomorrow is the Summer Solstice, (also known as Litha) and I just wanted to know what everyone had planned for tomorrow's events?

I know it has been a very long time, I was in a bit of a rut for some time, but Amethyst and I are working hard at getting closer, and celebrating the love of our Gos and Goddess once again. She and I will be spending tomorrow evening together, to celebrate the wonderous events of Litha. Please, share with us your fancies. :)

Here's my own personal Yule write-up, plus a bit of a history lesson :)

Yule (December 20th-23rd) - Middle of Winter - This day is celebrated as Midwinter (as opposed to the common calendar saying this is the beginning of Winter), and rejoices in the actual returning light (the days getting longer) in the symbolic birth of the Sun Child aspect of the God from the Earth Mother aspect of the Goddess. This is the longest night of the year so it would seem that darkness has conquered the Earth, but since it is the pinnacle of that darkness the only direction to go from here is towards more light. It is a reminder that the only constant is change, that even though the nights were long and cold, now they will begin to diminish and warm, making ready for new growth and rebirth. We decorate trees as a form of Magick, hanging fruit-like ornaments to encourage Nature to remember Her fertile time ahead. This began with ancient Pagans hanging fruit and nuts on trees; They were reminding the trees of their purpose, and asking them to continue to provide food.

Also, the evergreen trees are so symbolic because of what they are, Ever Green. Before we understood the Scientific Why, the Spiritual/Religious/Cultural Why was assurance from the Gods that They would not let the people perish in the Winter, and that the Earth Mother was not actually dead, but sleeping.

Almost every other common "Christmas" traditions come from older, Pagan celebrations from this time of year as well. This next portion is a post a friend of mine made on her blog--

My thanks to the A-ShimmyCollapse )

Whatever your beliefs, whatever holiday you celebrate this year, I wish you all the Brightest of Blessings this Winter.

Holidays [06 Dec 2005|06:06pm]


With Yule just around the corner, I was curious to know. For those of you who do celebrate the Winter Solstice, how to you come about it? I use the traditional evergreens and such, but how about you? I'd like to hear everyone's celebrations. :)

Tips for meditation...

I'd suggest trying all sorts of various techniques and see what works best. Do it with soft soothing music, scrying (both with and without music) with a candle or a bowl of water or a crystal ball, with and without a mantra for any of these, with and without incense, with and without light (well, except for scrying... although it might be interesting to try water- or ball-scrying in relative darkness). Try different positions, cross-legged, legs straight out in front of you, lying down flat on your back, cuddled up to a pillow or a kitty, or spread out taking up the whole bed. Just keep at it, trying different combinations until you get some kind of result. Even retry things that didn't work the first time, since you might have made progress you hadn't realized. There's no one right way to meditate, you just have to keep at it and find something that works.

And in case someone here wasn't familiar with the term, scrying is a form of both meditation and divination (divination also includes such practices as Tarot cards, runes, etc.) in which you look into an object (most commonly water, flames, a mirror, or a clear crystal ball) and just let the mind go and see what it will see. I've found it best to scry in low light, like from a single candle, but like I mentioned in the first part, depending on the tool used, further darkness might make for interesting results.

I'm hoping this is alright with the mods. If not, I'll remove it.

This is a letter based on writings of mine that I've sent to two friends interested in Paganism and/or Wicca so far. I though I would share it here, since this is intended to be a learning community.

The Very Basic BasicsCollapse )

Hello, I've just joined, I saw this advertised on paganprayer (the mod of which is also an LJ friend of mine :-D). I'm hoping I'm not overstepping my bounds here, but I'd like to offer my "services" as an Elder, of sorts, to this community. I was raised Wiccan my entire life, and while I'm not saying I know everything there is to know about Paganism and Wicca (and anyone who does claim that is full of it), I hope I can at least be an asset to those wanting to learn more about the Craft.

That being said, I'm glad to be here, regardless.

Be always Blessed.

References: Useful Links [18 Aug 2005|12:19am]

[ mood | tired ]

Here are some quite useful websites I find myself using quite often.

the Pagan's Path. My personal favourite pagan website. It has an extraordinary amount of information, including information on common pagan religions, easy to understand Sabbat rituals, and good beginner's material for those just starting off on the path.

The Celtic Connection. A huge collection of information on paganism, Wicca, and witchcraft. If there's something you can't find, here would be a good place to look.

Covenant of the Goddess. Contains a lot of information defining exactly what Wicca is, beliefs within the Covenant, and answers to some frequently asked questions about the religion.

Beginning Wicca. A humble little home-made site that gives basic facts about Wicca and clears up common misconceptions about the faith.

Witch's Voice. Want to know about celebrations, lessons, and gatherings going on in your local community? Check this website out.

If you have any pagan/Wiccan/spiritual websites that you particularly enjoy, please post them to notes to this entry.

Blessed be,
» Amethyst

Amethyst's Welcome! [17 Aug 2005|02:06pm]

[ mood | bleh ]

Hello, everyone. I'm Amethyst, and I just thought I'd say hello, since I couldn't say a better welcome than Opal. I'm one of Opal's best friends, also her daughter in spirit. She taught me a lot that I now know today about paganism. I happen to be her moderator-in-arms and graphic maker/programmer extratrordinare.

Again, I welcome all to this community, and thank you for joining and/or watching!

Blessed be you and yours,
» Amethyst
