Courtesy Guidelines for All Coven Gatherings

Before the sacred circle starts at 7:15 PM Central Time in the USA anyone entering the chat room is welcomed to socialize with anyone else that is there. Ask Lady Beltane questions about lessons or anything else.

Once the circle starts ALL SOCIALIZING AND COMMENTS unless asked for in the ritual must stop. You will get one warning if you break this guideline. If you do it a second you will be asked to and expected to leave the gathering immediately. There will be no exceptions to this guideline.

No one should enter or leave the chat room between 7:15 until the circle is finished. To enter or leave the chat room (computer knocking you out of the chat room during this time is the only exception for re-entering the circle) during this time breaks the circle and whoever is leading the circle needs to take their time and energy to close it up again.

All electronics in the room you are in during the gathering should be shut off except for the device you are using to access the chat room.

No one will be allowed to use foul and/or rude language in the chat room either before or after the sacred circle. Anyone not following this guideline will be blocked from the chat room and no second chance will be given to attend another gathering.

Anyone attending a gathering is welcome to stay after the circle is done to visit with the others and/or offer other ideas for the ritual performed at that gathering.

These are simple guidelines and show courtesy to all coven members and visitors. If you have any questions about them please write to Lady Beltane at

A Thought for Today

What is one of your main goals for this year?

Mine is to be a better teacher and leader to not just my novices and adept but to the pagan community at large. To make this goal to be realized, not just this year but for as long as Coven Life is on the world wide web, I will be and have asked as I call them my Spirit Council to help me. What is a Spirit Council? For me it is a combination of my ancestors, spirit guides and protectors, spirit and power animals, a Muse that helps me write named Collipe, the deities and Archangels I work with. They help guide me when I listen to my inner voice or intuition or they come to me in dreams or during meditation. I also get help from you brothers and sisters when you make comments on here and/or write to me. For this I am very grateful to you for helping me to help others.

Please keep in mind dear ones I am not just here as another blogger or teacher of The Craft. I am also here to listen and help you through whatever may be happening that you might want an ear from someone who will listen without judgement or a “shoulder” to cry and/or lean on. I am here as a spiritual advisor or minster if the need arises.

  • Blessings of love, light, and peacefulness  I send to you dear ones.

Where I Fear to Tread: Angels and Witchcraft?

I’ve always avoided angels. It seems I can’t anymore. In this post, I discuss angels, ascension, and Hekate. There’s also a ritual to welcome angelic help.

I’m currently dealing with an unwanted suitor. You see, for the second time in my life, an angel seems to want to become my spirit guide. The problem is that I don’t much care for heavenly beings. I actually fear them if I’m being honest. As a daughter of The Dark Mother, I prefer the familiar underworld creatures. I brought this on myself by declaring that my dark days were over and welcoming Hekate Soteira into my life on the winter solstice. This version of Hekate as Savior also happens to be the Mother of Angels, so it’s not surprising that this is happening. Since I’m committed to going where I fear to tread, I decided to perform a ritual to welcome my angel guide into my life. But I still have many questions about angels and witchcraft.

To Curse Or Not to Curse?

In our lovely Kitchen Witch facebook group last week a question was raised about cursing and it was interesting to see the type of responses.  They ranged from ‘go for it, you have a right to protect your ass’. To a person reporting the post and leaving the group because we even discussed curses.  It is obviously a very emotional subject.

I am not Wiccan and as such don’t necessarily follow the rede although I do believe the ‘do what you will, but harm none’ is an excellent guideline.   I remember a discussion within a Wiccan coven about the rede and the actual meaning. The general consensus was that although you wouldn’t throw curses and hexes about you would be entitled to protect yourself and those you love from harm.


Remember Me?

Witches Of The Craft®


They have turned me loose again, thanks to Jacob. Jacob is a super sweet kid, well not kid, a young man. I should probably quit talking about him because he is turning bright red and I would imagine he feels a little odd since he is typing this. I have to say he has been terrific. He told me anytime I wanted to convey a message to you, he would type it for me. Eleanor volunteered to do the same but I am afraid she might twist my words around. Something like, “Good morning, I am going to turn all of you into zombies today!” Just kidding. I trust her completely or else she wouldn’t have access to this account.

Everyone else is out gathering up supplies because we are sitting right in the path of an ice storm. The mention of ice they all run around like chickens with…

Get Ready, Witch: Conjuring Up Lasting Change in the New Year

As witches we often use spells to manifest the changes we want to make. Too often these spells focus on a desired outcome rather than on conjuring the necessary skills required to bring about change. A vital part of effective witchcraft is focusing on personal development that will lead us to the goal. Simply doing a spell without doing the work to prepare for the outcome just doesn’t cut it. We need to step back from wishful spell casting. Witchcraft is a lot of work. If you want to manifest changes in 2018, you’ve got to examine all the requirements. You’ve got to get ready.


She’s Alive, I Tell You! She’s Alive! A Message from Lady A typed by Jacob

Witches Of The Craft®

Good morning, my precious family. In case you are wondering how I am writing this to you, Jacob is typing and I am telling him what to say. He has been an unbelievable help and I don’t know what I would do without him. We got up early this morning and he brought a laptop to the house so we could do this. The ladies won’t be doing the site today because I have a doctor’s appointment today and another one next week. I know they must get tired of playing babysitter for me but if not for them I wouldn’t know what would become of me. I am very grateful to them and all they have done. I am also very grateful to all of you who sent cards and donations to me. I have never seen such an out pouring of support and I love you for it…
