What to Do When Your Sacred Space… Isn’t, Anymore.

I’ve written in the past about my favorite spot in Southern California (quite possibly my favorite place in the world that I’ve been to so far)—the area I consider to be my sacred space, the place I go when I need to unwind and…

My Year of Endings

When I went to see my spiritual counselor at the beginning of this year, she told me that on my birthday I will be entering a year of endings.* This is a good time to get rid of things, habits, and relationships which no…

Book Review: The Path of a Christian Witch by Adelina St. Clair

This post contains affiliate links. Please click here to read my disclosure policy. So, as I’ve mentioned, I’ve been attending church, recently. While I didn’t think I’d actively dislike it, I will admit that I was surprised to find that I actually enjoy it,…

A Witch’s Beginnings, part three

Part One. Part Two. Wicca has a “harm none” edict which felt stifling to me in my late teens and early twenties. Not that “harm none” isn’t a solid principle to adhere to, but so many of the resources I found at the time…

A Witch’s Beginning: Part 2

Last week, I talked about my childhood background in Christianity and how I ended up drifting away from that, because there wasn’t much of an anchor there to begin with. Something I’ve learned through my years of searching is that spiritual connection, regardless of…

A Witch’s Beginnings, part 1

In the past, I’ve spoken vaguely about how I came to Wicca, which shifted to Paganism, which has turned into agnostic witchcraft, which continues to shift as I continue to search. But, I haven’t spoken about where I was prior to that, or really…

Finding Mentors (in strange places)

This post is inspired by the wonderful Hestia’s Servant and a post she made some time ago about a lack of elders and teachers in the Pagan community. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the people I have learned from and those I’ve…

Church and the Agnostic Witch

So, I’ve been thinking about going to church, lately.

Blessed Solstice!

Being a witch surrounded by Christmas-celebrating folks is a chore. Christmas is stressful and unpleasant. But, I want to take a moment away from the chaos to wish all of you a blessed winter solstice. I wish you all warmth, love, and comfort through…

Witchy Wednesday: Cast a Spell!

As you might be aware, part of being a practicing witch is casting spells. So, for today’s Witchy Wednesday (and the last Witchy Wednesday of Blogtober), I’ve decided to share some of my favorite spells with you. Yay! Magic!

Witchy Wednesday: How It Began (and a little about where it is now)

Like the majority of the things in my life that end up coming to have the most meaning to me, I got into witchcraft for all the wrong reasons.

Witchy Wednesday: Why Colorado Springs will Always be the Witchiest City (to me, at least)

I’m sure I’m not the only one that gets random associations in my head, right? Two things that are objectively unrelated, but are forever linked in my brain meat. Can I talk about how Colorado Springs will always be the witchiest city in the…
