By the idol namesake of clove lipped cedar boughs, I light this waxen tor under the belly of the crones moon. This instant where darkness pools like the milieu of snowflakes, held only now by the flame which crawls its way into existence and then dances maniacally, severing shadow from sight. There is thick cinnamon and burnt orange peel laced into the billowing smoke from the woodstove.

I hear her wrinkled voice too, woven into the contained clouds, chanting some such wisdoms from the shrine of death. It is that most auspicious time when death mourns for itself and at the snowy grave a new life is born. The yule log is flecked with holly and crimson pointsettas, lit up by the impending arrival of the new born Sun. The icicles r...

The Scriptures of Sovereignty: Part Two


What does it look like to trust yourself?


What does it look like to reign reverence upon your own paved road, to honor the suffering as much as the saintliness, the aching imperfections and the deliciously autonomous moments of sovereignty? 


To rest your eyes for a moment on the pages which you never before dared to read. The ones which became blurred by dust and dogma and righteous ambiguity. The ones of those most potent books held in the haunted hellfire and liquid alchemy and blazing prophecy of your enchanted inner sanctuary. 


It has to be that it looks like the incredible beauty and the blooming rose with its erratic unpredictable thorns and alluring capacity for growth. It has to be...

A fresh lull in a cool whisper, the first harvest licks your toes as your footsteps slow. It is time to drink the celebratory wine, brewed dandelions which have sat in purposeful acquiescence. Now protruding from the fiery spinning disc in the belly of your soul. Pause, sister, take a moment to lavish in the taste of ruffled icing, to sway in the soft glaze of new life which you birthed. It is now ready to take its timely walk out into the world. Stumbling or stomping, the ripening storm, onward and upward hoof and horn. Your flowering crown is ready to be adorned, and you know without a doubt, that all that dies shall be reborn. Yours is the great seeded symphony moaning beneath the Earth, the pregnant belly of the crisp red ap...

Sister, you will know when it is time to bear witness to the one that slithers under your skin and weighs like a thick fog over your eyelids declaring worthlessness. You may be sitting in the bathtub sweating and praying through tears hoping that it will just evaporate from you. You may be screaming into the void of tortured memories of this life or another, and misplaced emotions trying to fit in place that fragmented piece of self. This is a poetic exorcism, a metamorphosis so excruciating that your heart must break over and over again, your ego must be humbled, and your soul must rise until all that is left is that sweet devotional nectar of divine unconditional love. This is the greatest awakening, to come home to your true...

This is the time of the Sun God, as he bares his naked chest upon us, the light of his heart blinding. This is the point when we become so wrapped up in his light that the day itself seems extended, all so we can remain held as long as possible in his passionate embrace. This is Litha, also known as Midsummer and the Summer Solstice.

We dance around the fires and stare deeply into the dancing flame of an inscribed candle. The cauldron holds yarrow, vervain, fern, st.johns wort, and rose petals… The moist leaves of the morning are brushed clean of the sweet dew to be blessed on the altar as holy water. We honor the sacred elements. 

We honor love, marriage and divination at this time as well as the blessing of wealth that is o...

Prosperity magick is often a process of discovery and deep healing, for there are many layers and recognizable symptoms as to why so many remain in a state of lack and poverty. It asks that we not only do the ritual but embody the ritual in our daily life as well. Accessing prosperity requires incredible trust, focused will and the ability to recognize opportunity as well as harness creative inspiration.

Shame (see my recent article), guilt, conditioned beliefs of unworthiness and lack of motivation are often contributing factors. Imbalanced masculine and feminine energies which keep us inactive, indecisive or blocked in accessing intuitive and creative energy.

The Witches Pyramid can be referenced here as a practice of cultivatin...

I am the mistress of the red door, which sits in waiting in the quiets of the vast desert. There embedded in the wild rock, a portal painted over through centuries. Over and over it has dried under the blazing sun light and cracks appearing like antique arteries reveal themselves.

I am the weaver of braided veins, a ribbon among those voices which rise into unison. I spread like the roots of the redwood through the most precious parts of shared ground. Each layer of bark falls away with the fidelity of time’s cryptic indifference. There are secret markings in the tracks of the footsteps I follow.

I am the red river in the moonlit hollow. There are carved symbols of planets and coded poetry along the length of the polished branch....

Deep in your womb lives a spiral, goddess. It is the subtle movement of memory where love made its first impression on your inner maiden. It is the curling rhythm of liquid life in the cauldron, moving through the thickness of years inwards towards understanding. This space is held sacred in universal memory as the goddess temple, when the shadows of sisters were dancing silhouettes against flame lit walls. The shedding of fragmented feeling falls away as the eroding walls of the oceanic cave. Each inspection revealing thrusts of mighty waves where memory is held like treasure in the dark of the dragon’s lair.

Deep in the spiral, sounds of chanting move in motion with hands held and wisdom interspersed with decided safety. Yes, y...

Sister, there may be a time when you feel your blood burning hot with rage and disillusionment. A confusion swirling like an ancient tornado in the depths of your belly. In the great arcane cycles, there are messages of death recurring.

It may have before been blissful waves when each moment felt like making love with divine essence in the form of sweet raindrops or the sensual caress of the wind. It may have been like reaching a wicked height of bliss only to reach the top of the tower and find yourself leaning over the edge pleading for death of that part of you that has somehow once again awoken.

Know that as you open to your intuitive gifts, you must burn away what no longer serves you, by the guidance of the Dark Goddess. You...

I come to you sweet White Willow, my Moon Mother, the billowing gown of the Green Goddess. I come to you with wounded knees, blood stained, cracked and caked with the dirt of old feathers and bones and a broken heart from calculated untruths. I your vulnerable witness, your struggling servant, seeking refuge in the modest shelter of your weeping boughs. I come to you with a crippling confession that aches through every pleading piece of my being, that has me nauseous with what feels like a million butterflies both terrified and orgasmic-ecstatic. I crawl to your ancient base and wrap my weary arms in a child-like embrace to tell you just how deeply sorry I feel for taking so long to really see you. I confess that for so long I h...
