D is for Deipnon (again!)

This was last years D topic too, but it was Hekate’s Deipnon a few days ago and so I saved this brief little post for today! I did my usual ritual in which I cleaned my shrines and cleansed my living … Continue reading

Theogamia began at sundown on Thursday.  It is the ancient Athenian festival in celebration of the marriage of Zeus and Hera. Since Hera has become pretty damn important to me this year, I decided to  make this a big event in my calendar! … Continue reading

The new (temporary) altar setup

I’m back with my parents until the lease on my new place is all sorted, and so my little altar has been set up under my bed again. You may recall me saying that a few months ago I downsized … Continue reading

C is for Charms and Trinkets

C is for Charms and trinkets

Even before deciding to actively pursue a path of witchcraft, I obsessively collected small trinkets that I found on my travels.

This grainy, poor quality photo shows just a few of the things that I have picked up along the way. I keep them around just in case they come in handy one day, and a few of the things already have intended uses.

In the top left is a large key that I dug up at the allotment. I plan to incorporate it into a house protection charm once I have cleaned it up a little. Directly underneath it is a small key charm that was given to me by a friend.

Below the keys are three crystals, Selenite, Bloodstone and Calcite. The first two were gifts and I found the calcite whilst on the beach. I don’t really like to buy gemstones because you cannot always be certain of their origin and the environmental impact of their mining, however I do have quite a large collection of stones that I have acquired in other ways.

Underneath the crystals are a collection of Iron nails that I, once again, dug out of the ground. The largest is about 5 inches in length.

To the lower right of the image lies some seashells that I have picked up on a beach over the years, and in the upper right hand corner there are 3 hagstones aquired from the same beach. Hagstones are one of my favourite charms and I have a large collection of them. One of the stones in this photo is a pendulum, and the other a protective necklace.

This photo was taken by me for the Pagan Blog Project.

A busy ritual month

I kick started the lunar month (well, technically ended the old one) with Hekate’s Deipnon. I cleansed my new flat for the first time, and offered her myrrh incense and the cherry mead which I only give to her and the ancestors.  The … Continue reading

Introducing my collection casting system

Well over a year ago, Juniper over at walking the hedge made a blog post about a method of divination using a casting system that she created.  I was very inspired by the whole idea of creating a system that … Continue reading

My altar is all set up in the new flat with an autumnal cloth. I found the big shell that is holding the incense on the beach! Lots of candles burned last night. I had lots of prayers.
