Until OCT. 1st

To all my brother and sister of the craft, plus my Followers. I am going offline due to that I am moving to my new home this weekend. I will be finishing packing and be moving my stuff to the new house of mine. I will not be back online until October the 1st. this is when my internet will be back online at the new house. If you need me, please let LAdy Beltane know and she can get a hold of me.

Blessed be until then

Samhian

As the Northern Hemisphere Begins to Settle in For The Cold Tempatures and Shorter Days

Now is the time to finish your final harvest as anything left on plants, trees, and vines on Samhain, October 31st is for the wildlife, gods, and goddesses to enjoy.

It is time, if you can, to can fruits and vegetables. To pick, during the right Moon phase for optimal power, and dry your herbs. To stick up on other non-perishables you have to buy, put extra meat and homemade or store bread in your freezer. I even buy a small thing of powdered milk in case we get snowed in.

I also check to make sure I have all my magickal supplies, candles, herbs, oils, etc, stocked and ready for use. I also make sure I have my Yule log under a trap so I don’t have a problem lighting on the Winter Solstice. Whenever possible I do a ritual outdoors for Samhain and the Winter Solstice because I do not have any type of fireplace indoors.

As for my home now is when I do a fall cleaning and through smudging in every room and my basement. I want to make sure I do not have any negativity in my home before the windows are closed and the furnace turned on giving it and/or nasty beings a place to hide in.

Please tell us what you do to get ready for you he darker and colder time of the year. Leave as long a comment as you want to. I hope I can get some new ideas from others on preparing for this time of year.

Your Book of Shadows

Greetings Alpha Witches!

In the last four days, I’ve received questions regarding the Book of Shadows, so I thought it would be appropriate for me to broach the subject today.

Are you familiar with the term, Book of Shadows?  More than likely you are, but I’d still like to expound upon a few things, especially since this is one of the most important implements in our Craft.

Some magickal folks call it  a journal or a grimoire.  Which name makes you feel more deeply regarding Witchcraft and your magickal studies? The choice is completely up to you. I, however, prefer to call it my Book of Shadows and Secretes.  Regardless of what you decide to call it, the most important thing is that you have one, and that you are detailed and keep it clean, neat and up to date.

Don’t think that you need to spend a lot of money…

AUTUMN FANTASY

I Am

I am more than what anyone expects
I am more than what the world sees
I am more than what I show you
I am more than what can be
I am more than a woman
I am part of the earth and the earth is part of me
I feel the best when I am working the earth
I feel fulfilled when I see the growth of the earth
I smell the beauty of the earth when it rain
My self and my Sisters, we are of the earth
The earth is our Mother
I am more than what is seen and more to come

—A Witch’s Prayerbook
