Happy Mabon!

Hello everyone,

Well technically Fall began yesterday, but it can be celebrated today as well. So Happy Mabon to everyone out there! I’m glad that Mabon is here because it means we are getting closer to my favorite Sabbat (Samhain), and the temperature will start to drop and give us a break from the heat of the Summer. I don’t know about you all, but I am not a Summer girl. I know we need it though. So Mabon is a time of gratitude. I made a small list of things that I am grateful for that I thought I would share with you:

  1. My family, especially my parents who deal with me day in and out.
  2. My health. I am officially going to be able to drive on Monday and it’s because I will be seizure-free for six months. Praise the deities.
  3. The deities, especially Lord Anubis and Lady Bast.
  4. My friends, who always are there for me.
  5. My religion, for without my religion I would be even crazier than I am now. πŸ™‚

I hope you all have had a wonderful Mabon and have a wonderful start into Fall. Talk soon!

Stocking up

Greetings everyone,

I haven’t been active lately. I apologize greatly. Mainly it’s due to my mood and health issues. Not wanting to talk lately. Well I thought I would let you know that I have got the chance to stock up on some supplies, not a lot, but some that will keep me happy. We have a local store called Earth Magic down here near us and I went there for the first time. I got some Sandalwood incense (so can’t wait to burn it), a new incense holder, two candle holders, six candlesticks (two white, two green, two black), and a small statue of Lord Anubis in jackal form. I was very happy to say the least. I’m going to be doing some cleaning tomorrow or Sunday and have a whole new altar set up. I’ll take a picture and post when I’m set up. Thanks for hanging with me. Talk soon.

Merry Lammas!

Merry Lammas everyone! Lammas is a Wiccan/Pagan holiday aka Sabbat celebrating the turning of the wheel where the corn is reaped along with the wheat. It is opposite from Imbolc on the wheel. So now Lammas is here we still are not officially into Fall, but it’s not long. I often think of Osiris as a deity for this holiday. I think he is a really good deity to celebrate with when celebrating Lammas because of the fact that he is associated with death. Although Lammas is not necessarily a death-type Sabbat, it is drawing closer to Samhain. But those are my opinions. πŸ™‚ Merry Lammas to you all!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July! I hope everyone got the chance to celebrate this day with their family and to think of it as the day of our independence. Thank you to our forefathers, for without them we wouldn’t have our freedom! Have a good day!

Merry Summer Solstice!

Merry Summer Solstice (aka Litha or Midsummer)! Well, I can’t believe the Wheel of the Year has spun again. It’s the longest day of the year and I personally am happy that the Wheel is starting to spin towards the darker days of the year. As you can probably tell, I’m not a big fan of the lighter half of the year. However, we need it. I hope everyone has a great Summer Solstice! Blessings!

Is death to be afraid of?

In the past couple of weeks I had been practicing with my tarot cards and reading about them and my favorite card, believe it or not, is death. Now if you pull out that card from the Egyptian Major Arcana from Llewellyn, guess who represents Death? Anubis does. πŸ™‚ That’s not why Death is my favorite card, but it is a major bonus. πŸ™‚

There are many people who fear death in this world and when or if they get a reading that shows the Death card, they assume that a physical death is coming their way. Death means many things in this world, not just leaving the physical world to the next plane. It can be scary. Let’s continue with the Death card. Death is change. It is the continuing of going on into a next phase. So sometimes people may be to comfortable where they are, but they need to be somewhere else in life and this scares them or makes them very uncomfortable.

A non-physical death could be a loss of a job, new relationship, new home, etc… If people don’t accept this ‘death’ and change with it then they are being stagnant. Staying where you are is bad. It’s like being a ghost and not moving on to the other plane of existence. Who wants to do that?

So think about it like this, there are going to be changes in our lives and you can choose to roll with them or stay put and stagnate till some one forces you to move. Death aka change will probably have to force you off your ass at one point in time. Don’t fear Death, it’s not an enemy in any form it takes. Those are just my thoughts.
