All the wrong arguments

What is perhaps the only thing good that a connected world can give us, is to view groups of people coming together in virtual places and talk. I used to do a lot of talking either, but I found that the talking didn’t do much for me. The listening however can be very instructive. There is […]

The true Grimoire

The quest of many magicians, as it seems, is to obtain the one and true grimoire; the one set of instructions, unaltered by time nor man to reveal the true praxis of high magick; to be followed to the letter and to be protected in its purity. What is a Grimoire? But before we name this illustrious […]

Good intensions

And to be sure, the road to hell is paved with the stuff, but thanks to the documentation of this blog, I noted how much I strayed from my intentions. Just going through my own posts I see my distraction to the mundane: politics! And don’t get me wrong, I think it is splendid when […]

The Ershahunga for Orlando

  In the days passing after the Orlando shooting, I managed to do some meditating, mostly because of distancing myself from various social media, as understandably, emotions run high between sadness, anger and fear.

It seems the longer I am in the craft, the more boundaries and limitations seem to be lifted away – or at least, my desire to have such boundaries dissipates. When I was much younger then I am today, I had an urge to label my type of witching, to make it easily identifiable what […]

A wiccan at an Irish funeral

Death is pretty much a part of Life and it does seem, the older you get, the more dates with Death to expect of loved ones and friends departing this plane of existence, or be there for friends and loved ones who lost someone dear to them. Living in Ireland, it does mean that the […]

Doing a world of good (being an asshat)

I often find myself in arguments, discussions and debates. Witches love these! And it is not as much as we like to change other people’s minds, in fact, witches care little about other people’s minds and are mostly concerned about their own. Witches are self centered like that. It’s the same way that we don’t […]
