I should never go to work un-caffeinated

Awesome co-worker: "Well, good evening, Sunshine!"

Me: "Hey girl!"

Dumbass coworker with an attitude: "It's too late in the evening to call him Sunshine."

Me: "Oh, I burn at all hours. This fire was forged in Hell a long time ago."

Dumbass coworker:  *scuttles away to sit in her corner*


I like your hat, Clarence. Pick up the pace! *

I work in the same general area as my alma mater, and my commute has me taking the same route I took to get to class. I frequently take the shortcut that drives through the wooded area the campus is set inside of.

Now that school is back in session, my morning drive has me dealing with lots of college freshmen driving like complete assholes. You can even spot the theatre majors, they are still dressing the same, and have that general look about them. Theatre people know each other.
Now that I'm older and have more insurance, I can't help but be a little jealous of their happy little faces. I'd love to go to class, write a theatre brief, go to ballet class, or audition for something.  
There's a big reunion planned for all of the alumni to celebrate fifty years of the program. I want to go. I want to go fairly badly, and the thought of seeing a few old friends makes me very happy.  But I'd be lying if I said I'd rather not see a good number of people who are li…

60. Do you believe in fantasy creatures (unicorns, gnomes, elves, fairies, etc)?

The "fantasy" element of this question might tip you off to my opinion on this matter. I do think there are spirits/beings of place and spirits tied to certain elemental forces. 

61. Do you believe in ghosts/spirits?

Yes. 

62. Would you ever teach the craft?

If I were involved in a tradition that had something to pass down or teach, and I was the proper person to pass down/teach that information, yes. 

63. What if any legal herb do you use for moods?

I use legal herbs to shift moods in the form of incense/oils all the time. Lavender, orange, sandalwood and musk get a lot of use around here. 

64. What is the most recent spell/ritual you have done? (slight detail please)

The most recent ritual I did was for Lammas. 

65. Do you have a happy place you go to during meditation?

No

66. What is your favorite witchy book?

Mastering Witchcraft by Paul Huson

67. Do you have a ritual to get ready before a ritual or spell…

41. How do you handle rejection from a fellow witch that refuses to do a reading or spell for you?

I've never had this happen. 

42. Do you think it is necessary to cast a circle when you do spell work or any magical working?

I don't think it is always necessary for everything, bur casting circle is foundational to my practice of witchcraft. 

43. If Steven Spielberg called and wanted to make a movie of your life, who would you want to play as you?

I need a better director, please and thank you.

44. What is some advice that was given to you that you pass along because it made an impact on your path?

I don't have an answer for this. 

45. What is some advice you would give someone who has not found there deity?

It is a fallacy that everyone in Paganism is going to have a matron/patron deity. You might or might not be called to worship a particular pantheon of deities as a whole. You might be a Wiccan with devotional relationships with deities who are outside of Wicca. You might not.

17. What are you feelings on raising kids in the craft?

I'm not a parent, I have no plans to ever be one, and my opinion on this is ultimately irrelevant. 

18. If you were a goddess or god, who would you be?

Being the Devil would be pretty cool 

19. Do you use astrology in your practice? In what ways?

Yes, in the sense that astrology permeates so much of the Western magical tradition. I will use planetary days/hours for a spell if I have the time on my hands to plan a working. I use astrological symbols and correspondences in workings. I use it in tarot, obviously. I have a slight interest in astrological charts but I only have a very slight understanding of astrology as a system unto itself. 

20. What if any ways could you practice dark magic and still respect the beliefs of Wicca?

What beliefs? Which version of Wicca? Are we talking about baneful workings? My understanding and practice of Wicca does not forbid "dark workings" or baneful magic. 

21. Do you have any witches in y…

77 Question Witchy Community Tag Part One

This is making the rounds on Youtube, but since I don't Youtube, we'll use this as a writing prompt. I tag everyone who reads this to go and do it yourself. 


1. Do you use runes as a written language?

I use the Theban script for specific things. I've played around with Ogham and the Norse runes for writing spells and making bindrunes, but I stick with plain English. 

2. Do you feel you have natural gifts such as (premonitions, hearing spirits) and if so do you think this is what led you to this path?

I've always had very strong impressions about people and situations and most of the suffering I've experienced in life has come from ignoring those strong feelings. I've had dreams or "visions" that have come to pass. I've had a few occasions where I've dreamt of dead people I did not know in person who have shared things with me that have turned out to be true. I don't think any of this lead me to my path. 

3. What deity do you work with if any an…

Lammas
