A Simple Blood Moon Ritual

Blood Moon Altar

Hey, how’s it going with… you know, SPIRIT and stuff? It’s kinda difficult to ignore the divine whispers on a Blood Moon such as the one we had last night. I don’t always keep the the Sabbat but this one started calling to me a few weeks ago and there was no way I would get away with doing nothing.

My rituals are simple because I adore simplicity – simplicity in spiritual devotion is like being totally naked and vulnerable with your lover. Continue reading

Mana Mojo and the Feri Fetch

the fetch

In the Feri Tradition, there is a belief in the Three Souls which roughly correspond to the id (Fetch), ego/personality (Talking Self) and super ego (God Self, aka Holy Daemon). Energetically, the Fetch is anchored in the second chakra, just below the navel. The anchor point for the Talking Self is the third eye and the God Self is located 6-8 inches above the crown.  Continue reading

Men Who Hate Women

"I'm a sadist pig and a rapist"

“I’m a sadist pig and a rapist” – Lisbeth’s revenge on Bjurman

 

“A woman in your arms and not in your heart is like looking at yourself in the mirror while sleeping on a bed of rocks.”
~ Apache saying from Heart of the Initiate – Feri Lessons by Victor and Cora Anderson

A few days ago, I finally got around to watching ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” In Swedish, the film is titled ‘Män som hatar kvinnor‘ (transl. Men who Hate Women). It’s a much better title in my opinion. The theme is not the dragon tattoo that Lisbeth has on her back, the theme is literally ‘men who hate women.’

Because it is a Swedish film and because I’m a Swedish woman who was abused by a Swedish man, it re-opened a few old wounds for me. Apparently there was stuff still festering because I had a rather strong somatic reaction – I felt the cells of my body almost literally shut down when the memories started flooding back in.

My Gods

This is a work of fiction.  All the characters in it, human and otherwise, are imaginary, excepting only certain of the fairy folk, whom it might be unwise to offend by casting doubts on their existence.  Or lack thereof.
~Neil Gaiman

I am currently reading The Heart of the Initiate – Feri Lessons by Victor and Cora Anderson and there is so much resonance with my own experience already, halfway through this 78 page book. I like that it is short and I love that the writing is succinct. The lack of ‘waffle’ is distinctly refreshing and un-American. This is the real McCoy.  Continue reading

The Exclusivity Trap

“The truest form of love is how you behave toward someone, not how you feel about them.”
― Steve Hall¨

Almost everyone who reads this blog will have heard the words ‘I love you’ said to them, yet when asked what the other person may have meant by those words almost all of you would be hard pressed to give an answer. You may not even know if they love you as a friend or a lover… or maybe even on the same level as they love pizza.

Some of you will have learned to doubt those three words at an early age because the actions that accompanied the words seemed to so utterly contradict them. Yet you know what you mean when you say them. You could mean that your love is unconditional, everlasting, giving and forgiving. It could mean that you have the other person’s back and that you will be there for them in sickness and in health. It could mean that they are your best friend as well as your lover and that you would do anything in your power to make them happy.

Ecstasy, Sex and Magick

witch on broom

 

Ostara arrived and revelations are raining down on me like spring rain. ‘Mojo‘ is a word I very much connect with both sex and magick, as well as with spring (when all of nature fornicates and faery magick turns the world green). The connection is becoming ever more tangible as any blocks to bacchanalian ecstasy I may have had in the past are being released.

You cannot own your magickal powers unless you release all sexual tension. Continue reading
