Yes Lady A, we are magic, just you and I...



So Mote It Be....


Or in other words, by their fruits shall ye know them, O Blessed Be...

What Pagan Leaders???


You know I use to read the wild hunts website because it contained updated pagan news, yet for some time all I hear and read is once again these stupid "witch wars" or the failure of these so-called pagan leaders we have today...Bullshit I say, bullshit to even call most of them leaders in any sense of the word. Most of there books I wouldn't dare recommend nor read, most are just full of their liberal mumbo-jumbo...yea I said it, liberal.
The failure is book publishers or popular pagan websites, camps, pagan pride groups or festivals that even host these people and there ego's. When I read of where some of these more popular pagan groups issued support for that crap in Missouri where a thug attacked a cop and got his thug ass killed made me sick! These people are not my leaders in any damn way. Jesus, and it seems its only with these stupid American groups...you hardly ever hear of trouble across the pond, my god how lucky they are...
To me, the people I truly look up too and follow are mostly now dead. Gardner, Valiente, S Farrar, E.C. Reed, and a few others. Thankfully, Ms. Crowther is still with us. These were witches who meant and stood up for something! Pagans who didnt worry about liberal social american issues...
They want to be taken seriously but look like a damn drag queen or some Halloween freak show and expect people to take them for real? Yeah ok...I think i will take my Doreen Valiente or Janet Farrar over this new crop of fluff any day of the week.
They are not leaders nor elders, just jokes and I dont follow nor support there crap. We have simply fallen too far from traditional or should I say original teachings.
Do What Thou Will, just don't call it Wicca anymore, too many have shamed it enough already...
I, for one, will remain within myself, alone...

Sherlock Holmes Tarot Deck Review by John Matthews and Wil Kinghan

Special Imbolc Announcement


Lady A and I have decided to have a private Imbolc Sabbat this year and not be involved in any circle ritual. We would like to wish all the very best and brightest of Imbolc Blessings. We hope that all will have a wonderful new year and your magick is blessed by the Goddess Brighid for the coming year.

As for the two of us, we feel our time now is best spent alone and in our own married circle like we were in years ago. We will of course keep our witchy blog updated and if time should ever arise, help all who sincerely request it. Blessed Be All, stir thy cauldron well...

When is diversity too diverse? A Witchvox article from my perspective...

A witchvox article from 25 January by Melantha tells of her struggles to find or join a coven. You see, she recently moved back home and had tried to start a group but the only replies she got back where from 2 ladies with mental issues. She goes on to say she recently got another inquiry from another lady, and guess what, she was as crazy as the others. LOL, bless her heart at least shes trying but then she goes on to discuss "diversity" within Wicca and those that are "normal".

There are those that practice Wicca who do not have 20 or so tattoos or wear pink hair or dress in black all the time. There are those that are not on the mental fringe list and who you would never believe were a witch based on appearance alone, now what a wonderful idea! Cause I fit that bill 100%. I don't care for tattoos on my person, I don't dress in black nor look "witchy". Pretty proud of it too... Yeah, I realize i am in the minority but thats fine by me..

Melantha then goes on to discuss how she is not a lesbian and how when she went to a witch festival she felt out of place somewhat by this feeling that they needed to let everyone know that they were gay in some way, you know what, big fucking deal. I can't stand that shit either. I'm straight but I don't go around hitting on every chick I see nor slobbering over my wife with pda, etc etc etc..

I feel for Melantha, I think a lot of all this has to do with age, shes middle age and has spent years in the craft. I understand the coven problems, most wanna bes just show up and don't do a damn thing in between, nor ask. I read where many of the ol timers eventually just go it on there own back to solitary practice and there is wisdom in this. Why should we give of our time and money and books and knowledge to people who are just not sincere and whos lack of interest speaks volumes..
