Why Lady Beltane Has To Move

I have allowed myself to be emotionally and mentally abused for just over 19 years. My ex-husband was fond how telling I was fat, what I should eat and when amongst calling me very unkind names. Plus trying Gaslight me say I never told him of minor or major things when in fact he admitted to just not listening to me. These are just the tip of the ice breg to our marital problems. Every argument ending with him tell me to get out or leave, this is the PG rating of what he actually said. About a month ago I was ready to leave but I started think of why shouldn’t leave but I did tell him the next time he said I was gone. This was after I found my strength as a woman first but also as a with. I’ve been in counseling for about a year which helped me to open my eyes to reality instead of looking through rose colored glasses.

I apologized for asking you to donate money to help cover my moving expenses but I only get under$8.00 per month because I can no longer work because of a very bad back and fibromyalgia and I never know until I wake up if it’s a good or bad health wise for body. I thought moving 515 miles to my beloved cousins it turned out that was a pipe dream. The approximate tot is close to $1,000.00 USD. I know times are tough money wise because of unemployment or your hours being cut as you work from home. But if everyone reading this would donate just $5.00 it will added up to help me payback the money I had to borrow to get away from my bully. Any woman or man in this situation I would donate to help them. I’d also be available day or night if they needed to vent, scream, cry, all these things at once.

So I reach out to you in my time of need for your help please. If you donate please put your email address where you can make a comment to me through PayPal because I want to personally thank every sister, brother, and guest. I can email you a receipt for tax purposes. I am embarrassed asking for you help. The Donate button on WOTC is on the left-hand side. On Coven Life it is on the right-hand side of each website’s Homepage. I thank you in advance for your support and money help.

One last easy thing you could do for me is to light a candle asking whatever Goddess(es) and/ or God(s) you call upon to help you with your magick.

I am hoping to get caught up with birthday horoscopes by next Wednesday and start doing the moon phase, and planetary position on that day also but this not a promise I need to settled in my new home after a very thorough smudging and house blessing along with doing my protective wards around the outside of my home. See you soon!

Blessed be dear sisters, brothers, and guests.

A Thought for Today

Ever ask yourself, “What does being pagan mean to me?” I have a few times over the years and am surprise that the answer often changes quite a bit.

A few days ago a neighbor, whose corner of their backyard meets a corner of ours, came over to ask my husband to quit setting off fireworks because it made him “dive to the floor when I hear them because I’m a veteran and it also really upsets my dog.” My husband agreed to stop setting them off until it closer to the 4th of July, the USA Independence Day celebration. The neighbor came back with a threat that if he set any off again he’d be back and not just talk. I had gone outside because this neighbor has a history of punching people and I wanted to be able to call the police if he hit my husband and had an ice pack in hand just in case. As the man was leaving I suggested he give his dog peppermint tea during the week leading up to the 4th of July. For which he thanked me. A side note to this encounter is one of my magical companions is slowly getting over her fear of loud unexpected noises when the neighbor first came in to our property he pound so loud in the front door that Star for scared and it took me a half-hour to quietly talk her into coming out to have some peppermint/valerian tea mixed with some beef broth, I make I’ve cubes out of beef broth when I make a roast, so she quit panting and skaking. I did not being this up to the neighbor as I was worried about his reaction to me blaming for scaring my fur baby.

I have seen this dog who is a pit bull mix when I am out on walks with my fur girls and this dog seems to cower at any type of noise above a whisper and all dogs no matter their size. So I do wonder if there may be some abuse to this beautiful creature but cannot prove anything to be able to call the police on the man.

After I sat and thought about it a while I decide to make up a few tea bags of peppermint and valerian to bring to my neighbors this coming weekend to make sure there is this natural anxiety help at hand for the dog. I wrote telling a coven member of this idea to which a reply came “that only you would do something nice for someone who wishes you harm.” Which got me to thinking, “As a pagan, do I walk the walk of my life and spiritual path with the forethought of the Wicce Rede as much and as often as I should?”

I am not perfect as no one is no matter what spiritual path a person walks. So if I am going to walk the walk of “Do as ye will, Less it harm none” why wouldn’t I try to help one of the Goddesses creatures that otherwise might not get it? Isn’t that what I am supposed to do as a pagan to help where I can or am I supposed to be as many of other faiths and say, “I love my fellow man and should help when I can?” but don’t. Am I supposed to be a hypocrite and only follow the Rede when it is convenient for me or am I to follow it as much and as often as I can?” My answer is I should follow it day and night no matter how I may be treated by other humans. I feel it is my place to be a beacon of hope for a better world living in harmony with all creatures on, above, and below Mother Earth. I feel I should be a beacon when it comes to not polluting Mother Earth in any way I can even if that means picking up trash others discard wherever I find it on my walks no matter where those walks take place.

So I ask each of you, “Do you believe the Wicce Rede is for only when we do spells or is it something we should remember daily especially if someone is does harm to us whether it is mildly, as in this situation, or majorly as in someone hitting us or speaking negatively about us?”

I am really interested in hearing how others feel about following the Wicce Rede so please weigh in with your opinion in the comments section below

Blessed be dear sisters, brothers, and guests. May this find you in good health.

Making Fauna Pagans

Many people in the Neopagan movements use an interesting metaphor (or “clever” putdown) to describe people who are newer to Wicca and Paganism than they are, or who seem to have more sensitive ethical constraints on their magical (or even mundane) behavior than their critics claim to have. These critics call their targets, “Fluffy Bunny Pagans.” Sometimes the term used is “Bambi™ and Barbie™-Goddess Pagans,” implying a sickeningly sweet attitude about life in general and the Craft in particular. If someone’s image of the Horned God is Bambi™ and of the Goddess is Barbie™, others could reasonably assume that person is naive and shallow. Of course, I know several Pagans who are proud owners of the (very expensive) Sun Goddess Barbie™ and Moon Priestess Barbie™ dolls

Inhabitants of the Buffyverse know the overly enthusiastic, naive, and yet often dogmatic “newbie” Wiccans as “Blessed Wanna-Bes” and seem to believe that the character of Willow is a good example of what a Witch is supposed to be–although I’ve never met a Wiccan or any other kind of witch who could pull off the sorts of spells that Willow did on a regular basis.
