This book I would advise any witch to have in their library. It is in the simplest language and covers anything an aspiring witch could want in a reference bible. It has the "101" sections and gives details by using several wiccan traditions teachings. Yelp, traditional is included which is a bonus.
Although I still require The Witches Bible by the Farrars as your main book to go to while you are a dedicate to this coven, this book compliments it very well indeed.
Amazon has it for like $13 and the kindle edition for like $12. Not a bad price for a book with this much info.
We were honored to meet Lady S last night and we all got along just fine. We are looking forward to her joining us in circle and initiation into our coven. It seemed as if we all had known each other for years!
The more magick the merrier...
Note to Circle: Do Not let Lady A near another pizza carving, i mean butchering.lol
I didn't really get into the whole Fox Newsvs. Wicca "thingie" from a few weeks ago and I just don't really get into the pagan drama that you read about sometimes and their "witch wars"...just don't get it.
Maybe it's me, but I think we have enough on our plate as it is. I just don't have the time nor desire. I have enough on my plate.
At age 41, I have come to understand that most folks ain't gonna change anyway and they typically do pretty much what they gonna do anyway, soooo what's the point in the arguments? Just agree to disagree and understand that differences in opinion is not cause for hatred or petty jealousies.
We are different, every last one of us. Same with the many forms of wicca today and practices of witchcraft. Being in a coven, you realize that everyone is unique and everyone brings something to the plate. It makes it special, it makes us special. The energy felt within a traditional circle is not something easily explained, its magickal. Perfect Love and Perfect Trust
We will never ever never get christians to understand us nor cease in bashing us. Get over it and if you think otherwise, then you have much to learn. We are wiccan, get over that as well. Leave those people alone and avoid arguing with those who have "ears to hear but do not hear". Wiccans who come out of the broom closet must understand what they are opening themselves up to. Be brave but realize you aint gonna change anyone of their opinions.
I still prefer the secrecy and privacy, but thats just my way. Wicca is a very large tent and you only have to follow your own will, not someone elses!
Which is why our coven has open circles on the Sabbats and not coven-only closed circle rituals. We have our tradition but don't force it. All wiccans should be invited to the Sabbats, regardless of tradition.
<Although it is funny as hell to me to see "Pagan-only not wiccan" or the "witches-only not wiccan" celebrate the 8 WICCAN Sabbats...lol>
Anywho, use your magickal energies and time on yourself and loved ones, not on Fox News or other peoples drama. Our magick doesn't work on stupid. Life is just far too precious and far too short.
WOW, what a wonderful circle last night! We all had a blast and had just the best time. Of course thats what circle is suppose to feel like when you are in a closely knit coven. I am thankful to be apart of this group.
Hopefully now we can plan this meet and greet coming up with a few new folks looking to join our crazy group, lol...
Be planning now what activities, magick , and other witchy things we will be doing this year. Remember, Beltane will be held over at Lady B's house and not at the covenstead. Yes we will have us a May Pole, and a good time. As always, you may stay the night if the ummm festivities are too much for driving home...
