Lady Beltane Making Her Move Back to Illinois 11/28/2020

For from now until December 6, 2020 on WOTC there will only be a Current Planetary Positions post for the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, Daily Moon Phase, and Birthday Horoscope. I am finally coming to where I belong and who I belong with after 19 years of being apart my Yang and I will be together with a stronger and dare I say more loving relationship than we had two decades ago. I will be including him in some of my posts after packing, picking up and loading the  moving truck, driving to Illinois, unloading and returning the moving truck, all to have the joy of unpacking all of mine and Star’s belongings. In a previous post I explained the steps I went through to make sure this is the right move for me, I understand with this being my 4th move in 5 months that some of you maybe asking yourself is Lady Beltane sure this will be her last move? My answer is YES it is, Mr. Beltane (until he picks his own Pagan name or an alias to use on our websites) is to paraphrase a saying we use here in the States “He is the one I pushed away.”  I cannot explain in the words we have use of today how ecstatic I am that while we were living very separate lives we were we still thought of each other often and with love and respect in our heart for the other. As we start talking again by phone over the last two months our feelings that had bee buried under a lot of rubble begin to emerge to find light and good soil to be able to continue growing and blooming.

This week I need to do posts in between packing and next week I will be doing them in between packing, and working with Mr. Beltane in the evenings. He has an ability to hear voices that have not crossed the veil into the Spirit World yet, to smell things that there is no reason for the scent, for example coffee brewing he is the only human living in the house right now and doesn’t even own a coffee maker. He is open to The Old Ways and I am sure in the not to distance future he will be join me in our coven. He will start as a novice and work his way up to stand beside me as our High Priest. How do I know this? Through a series of repeated dreams and visions when meditating. Once Star and I get settled in some I will go back to posting all 6 Custom Planetary Position posts along with the Moon Phase, Birthday horoscope, and whatever else calls to me for that day.

I ask that you understand and give me some lee way over the next couple of weeks with posts, possible coven gathering, reviewing lessons, along with answering comments and emails. I appreciate your support, caring, and understanding. WOTC and Coven Life have I believe the best group of Pagan Sisters, Brothers, and Guests from a variety of religions as readers, students, coven members, and all around great people.

Blessings for a healthy and happy week, dear ones.

 

Superstitions

Around this time of year superstitions seems to come at us from all over the place. With this in mind I pulled out my book Cassell Dictionary of Superstitions by David Pickering Copyright 1995.

I will be posting a few today and tomorrow in among the articles, spells, potions, etc for Samhain and Beltane. If there is a superstition that has been passed down in your family or that you believe in and would like some more information about them please write a description of the superstition in the comment area.

Many times during my youth my mother, who is now in the Summerlands, told me they story of her grandmother picking up and throwing the first pair of shoes she ever bought for herself across the room a breaking the heel off one of them. The reason being her grandmother believed that putting shoes on the table was bad luck. My family has many other superstitions that I will share as we get closer to our holidays.

REMEMBER WE WANT TO HER ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY’S SUPERSTITIONS. JUST WRITE THEM IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING it will help me think my family isn’t a wacky about superstitions as I think they are 😂😉

Just Like a Bad Penny I Am Back Once Again

Merry meet and merry greet Sisters, Brothers, and Guests,

Sorry I got behind again on birthday horoscopes, Moon phases and planetary positions but my application for the apartment complex my son lived in my application was denied. What ever reason they come up with for that the true story behind it is the fact that it is a no pet complex. My familiar and Emotional Support Animal is an 8 1/2 year old Chihuahua named Starbabie. We feel the real reason for the denial is because of Star but proving that is a hard thing to do. Because legally no housing is allowed to denie Star and I living there because of her being an ESA dog, just as they cannot denie a different type of Service Dog. SO to make a long story short we my son recieved an email on Thursday giving Star and I 4 days to get out of the “community” or I would be arrested for tresspassing.

Let me tell you a little about Star she doesn’t bark or bite but she does run behind me if someone she doesn’t know comes up to me. She has gone through her own trauma with moving 3 times in 3 months and missing her sister Cleo. Because I had to let my ex take her because of my son’s apartment complex no pets policy. So not only has she been moved just as she was feeling comfortable some place she also lost her sister/playmate.

As for me all these moves in such a short time has made me question a lot of things including my spiritual and magickal path. So for at least the next few days until I have time to feel more secure where Star and I are living now I will only be trying to do 4 posts daily. The posts will be Birthday Horoscope, Moon Phase, Northern and Southern Hemisphere Planetary Positions.

Since I believe in honesty and know some of you out there struggle with Fibromyalgila, Stress, Depression, Anxiety, and Nightmares. Also maybe like me a phobia I thought I had kicked out of my life but nope I didn’t a phobia of leaving your home. Well I’m an in the misted of a horrible fibor flare and every time I touch a letter on my keyboard I almost want to scream it hurts so much, if I walk it hurts just having to wear clothes hurt. My depression is as down as a deep well, I flinch at sudden noises and it send my anxiety into out space. My stress level is up there with the anxiety. I have been spent at least half of everyday crying since I parted with Cleo and then it stopped only to start again when I found out Star and I were basically being thrown out. I won’t even go into describe my night mares but because of them I have not been sleeping well even with the help of sleepy-by herbal tea mixture. But I was able to get out of bed this morning without help and take Star out under the watchful eye of the Moon Goddess. Every time I go out with Star I expect to come back and find the door locked to bare my entry. Rationally I know my daughter-in-law wouldn’t do that but our fears and phobias are hard for people without them to understand. If you have any questions about mine or Starbabie’s struggles please leave it in the comment section below.

Merry part until we meet again Blessed Be,

Lady Beltane

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.

No Lammas/Imbolc Gathering This Evening/Tomorrow Morning

I am very sorry I forgot about this important Sabbat. With being and then having a minor heart attack my mind has not been functioning as normal and I have been sleeping like 14 hours a day so these Sabbat crept up on me. I am not trying to excuse my falling down on my job as your High Priestess, I am just explaining what happened. I hope you will forgive my slip up. I will post a simple ritual you can do by yourself or in the chat room with some of your coven brothers and sisters.

Merry Meet Dear Ones

Found out why I’ve been feeling so yucky. I have the adult version on mononucleosis which is called Epstein-Barr virus. So I guess at 61 years wide I’m a teenager again, gives a little body shake at that thought. I was a rebel until about 16 then got married the first time and had my oldest child about a year later. Sorry about that my mind tends to go on tangents when I don’t feel well. If you have the time and want to I would appreciate maybe a healing candle kit or to be remembered in your prayers for a speedy recovery.

Through research on the Epstein-Barr virus I found out that between 90 and 95% of adults carry this virus but it hardly ever activates and if it does it is only one time. I got news for those researchers they need to do another study because this is the second time I’ve had it.

For the next week or so I will try to post on Coven Life. I’ll ask your forgiveness in advance if a post makes no sense because I did it when I was half asleep..lol

I wish you all a beautiful day. Know that I have missed posting on here. I

I thank the Lord and Lady every day for Priestess Hypatia and all the help and support she gives me. I now and say, “Namaste dear sister Hypatia. May you be blessed with nothing but positive things for all you do for me, our students, and other readers of Coven Life.”

Merry Meet and Merry Greet my Dear Sisters and Brothers

I want to thnk Priestess Hypatia of Alexandria for the fantastic job she has been doing here on Coven Life while I have been trying to figure out how to do the posts on Witches of The Craft. A little secret between us I prefer postings and spending here more than WOTC. I have missed you all. I finally have WOTC posting down fairly good and you will see me posting more on here again.

To let you all know Lady Abyss is recovering from the water moccasin bite and complications well. But we still need to light healing candles for her because of some of her other medical problems having an open wound is not good as it could get infected again which would probably lead to complications again and she could lose part of her leg or foot if that happens. So please keep her in your prayers that she heals quickly. Thank you!!

Except for the stress, which I mostly put on myself, from taking over WOTC I have been feeling fairly good now that the temperature here has decided to even out to the warmer side and every day and/or night thunderstorms have stopped. One other thing went upside down the deck of Goddess Knowledge cards fell out of the box all over the flooring mixing the ones I have already posted with those I haven’t I think I have the separated right again but need to double check so that will not be one going up until next Monday, sorry.

So please let me know what is new with you and how you are doing.

Until we meet again dear ones blessed be.

It Feels Great to Finally Have Some Time to Spend with You

The last two weeks in my life reminded me why I had my children when I was young. 6 weeks after my 44th birthday my youngest of 5 children turned 18. If my darling Sean Michael had lived I still would have only been 54 when he turned 18. I have been helping my younger daughter by watching her almost 4 year old son week days since April 19th and even though I love him a lot I thank the Great Mother today’s the last day of watching him until the 15th while my daughter trained for a new at home job. He has a 16 year old sister who is embracing her inner witch, even if she chooses not to tell her parents yet, and a 6 year old house of fire brother. About half the nights I stayed at my daughter’s so I could get a couple of hours extra sleep or at least try to.

Besides all of this the 6 year olds birthday was the first day of this marathon then my birthday came. My middle son and his wife gave the family permission to tell the world my 9th grandchild will be welcomed on to this plane of existence sometime towards the middle of August. Than yesterday I see a post my oldest son put on Facebook not only to tell theirown friends but his parents and children the he married a woman on April 30th whom my son had kicked out of their shared apartment last summer because of her drinking, drugging, emotionally and physically abusing him. So needless to say it put me and his 3 adult children into shock and that’s put it mildly for myself. I will find out more this evening when I talk to him.

If you would be so kind as to say a prayer or light a candle or both for the health of my daughter-in-law and my grandson. I and my son will be very grateful.

As for my older son’s marriage I ask if you would please ask the Universe to give him extra protection. Not only as his mother butI as his spiritual mentor also I am afraid for him. I love him and after I tell him the hurt I and his younger daughter feel, I haven’t talk to his other daughter and only son yet, for the way the told us he was getting married. I will listen to the reason he married his abuser after being totally rid of her. I will wish them a long happy life together and offer to Do a handfasting for them. I’m an ordained minister I could have gone the 3 1/2 hours to where they lived, married them in acouple park with only their immediate family members that could of made it there and a potluck reception and off they go. Oh well he’s almost 44 and as with all my descendants he walks to the beat of his own drummer. Also, except for one week total my husband’s been out of work since the beginning of March. Last but not least I go back to the orthopedic surgeon this Tuesday to find out if I need more knee surgery or just some physical therapy. As much as I dislike PT it’s a lot better than surgery.

While my life is once again a rollercoaster I know the one place where I can always find support and stability is by being open and honest with my chosen family that includes whoever is reading this. I have missed interacting with you, posting new information and reading your emails. This weekend I will be working on getting Coven Life up to date for May’s Moon phases and events. It you are not a coven member by being a student we have decided to open coven membership for a $25.00 annual fee payable after the Elders review a questionaire you need to fill out. If you are interested write to us a covenlifescoven@gmail.com and put “Applying 4 Coven Membership.” We will email you the questionnaire within 24 to 48 hours.

May you have blessed and Magickal weekend

-Lady Beltane
