Moon shadows.... #30daysmagicalroots: Day 25: Moon phases @Plentiful_earth #Blogs #BloggersBlast

#30DaysmagicalRoots continues with the subject:
Day 25: Esbats


Create a ritual to honor the moon every month. Do you only celebrate the full moon? Try honoring the dark moon this month and see how it changes your practice.

 I have honored the moon phases for a long time. Maybe not every phase, maybe not every month, but there have been times.


More often than not, and this would be one of the more traditionally Wiccan things I do,  I'll try to check the phase, in order to phrase my wishes (waning moon to banish..bad habits or whatever, waxing more to bring in ...whatever the wish is). The waxing to full moons are the best times to pull in the energies of creation and inspiration these, in my opinion. I've used it lately in terms of learning new tarot spreads. 


 I've been trying to add more new moon work lately even if it's only to read tarot regarding some shadow work. Ethony has quite a few tarot spreads I've saved to try. I must say working at the new moon throws me a little off balance. I find it's a little more laid back than a full moon. So will I make this a constant in my practice? I'm not so sure.As ever, we'll see. I think I work them more into my stories than anything, lazy? Maybe but it's always good to try something new, right?


Sometimes I'll just do something like go outside and take a peek at it, if nothing else, throw a kiss to it. (I know some who like to howl at the full moon, even. :))


A formal ritual for it? *thinks* When I first started, yes, I would be more formal about it? How? Cast a circle, anyway you like, invite the attendance of your gods, and if you wish, concentrate on some good habit you'd like to cultivate this month. You can pour a libation of thanks to your gods, if you like, or bring out some crystals to charge with full moon's powers, should you feel like it. Or any other magical tools or jewelry you might wish.  Or just settle down for simple meditation, if you wish. After you're finished, release the circle and thank your gods. That would be the usual format of a full moon ritual.

Not that I always go to all that trouble, but if I'm feeling traditional, I might. Certainly, Caitlin and Beryl and their Starfort coven would do so!

What do you do for the full moon?

Can I have some aspirin? Or #30DaysmagicalRoots Days 24 Sabbats @Plentiful_earth #BloggersBlast

30daysmagikalrootsspecialdaysandsabatsJuliDRevezzo

Sorry this went out early, y'all. I wish blogger would move the buttons so publish and save weren't right freakin' next to one another! Ahem...


#30days Magical Roots Challenge, Day 24's prompt was: Special days.


What holidays from the wheel of the year do you celebrate? Create your own wheel of the year! You are only limited by your imagination.


These are always fun!  :) (And kind of ironic for this to come up again because I've had this conversation with a friend of mine this year).


Ahem. Regarding the traditional "wheel of the year". For years, I honored the 8 dates that most people think of as the pagan wheel of the year. 


1: Samhain

2: Yule

3: Imbolc

4: Spring Equinox

5: Beltaine

6: Summer Solstice

7: Lughnasadh

8: Autumnal equinox


Until, I started looking into the traditional/Reconstructionist side of the question. That's when I came to the conclusion that... it's a bit of a generalization (dare I say stereotype?) to say all pagans and witches follow that Alexandrian/Gardnerian Wiccan calendar (Alexandrian Wicca/Gardnerian Wicca). 


No, no we don't.Which I think is the hardest thing for newbies to grasp.  In fact, the truth of our festival cycles can be a bit more complicated.  Or it can be as simple as just celebrating the moon phases.


As far as the "seasons" historically, not every area of the world celebrated the same holidays (as others have mentioned). The Irish Celts didn't celebrate the equinoxes and solstices, but the Continental and British Celts did (supposedly). And no doubt there are others. Australians, for instance.  I blame trying to force phenomena into dates on the fact that...*drum roll please* the calendar is an arbitrary construct. Is New Years always January 1st? No. In some parts of the world, in the middle ages, under the Julian calendar, New Years happened in March. The Roman year began,variously, May 1, March 15 and January 1st. (Until the Gregorian calendar came along and "normalized" it to January 1) 


And in some cases, (like Italy) they kept the March date even after good ole George's decree. Some all the way up to ...the mid-18th century? (I believe that's correct). Some stubbornly stuck to the old calendar until the 19th century. So when is new years, exactly? *headache* You can see how, as a writer, this would make trying to pin a certain event to a certain date or day difficult. (Try, 'what day was Imbolc... every 500 years'! Yeesh! Which is why I didn't choose to set the battles in Celtic Stewards Chronicles "at the Spring Equinox" or any other equinox/solstice or saint day, *bigger headache*)


Sometimes, we can't even agree on dates. For instance, (to take a historical subject I'm intrigued by) did Vesuvius erupt in August? Or October or even later, like some scholars think is the case? Or even pinpointing the birthdate of someone. (for instance, a queen I'm fond of: what day was Elinor of Aquitaine born? and what year? Two different astrology sites think she was born in September. Really? The scholars and writers only ever seem to mention a year (which may or may not be 1124.) So where did not one, but two astrologers dig up the exact day?? (either September 17th or September 24th? and one says via the Julian calendar it's the 24th while the other says that by the Gregorian calendar it's the 24th. *shakes head*) Truth probably is, only Elinor's mother knows. Are we even sure she died on April 1st? That seems like a joke to me. So to try to pinpoint "was that date a Monday, Tuesday? "or "did  it coincide with market day" (see Druid Warrior's Heart!). OMG, it's rough.


But I digress (incredibly). So given all this back and forth about the calendars and what date goes where and how and before or after when? It's not surprising that we can't even agree on our holidays, is it? And, as I've mentioned time and again (and again) some of the seasons blend into one, depending on your location. So, by necessity, I've adjusted the wheel to suit my environment (I mean, as pagans, that's what we're supposed to be attuned to, right?). But, to specific holidays... I have about... a million? *lol* 


Samhain
This is an anniversary for me, so to speak, so this is a special one. It may or may not still be sweltering by Samhain, so I tend to use it more as a time to honor my ancestors.


Yule

I'm iffy on whether or not the Celts even celebrated this one before the invasion of/contact with the Norse, but it's Christmas, which I always enjoy, so it stays on my calendar.


Imbolc....

which is a strange one for us because this is the time of the year when we're having our coldest days of the year. Not exactly a "first sign of spring", is it? But... I revere Brighid, and since it's her day, I've kept it on my calendar. (And even used it as the ritual battle date in the Celtic Stewards Chronicles series :)).


Also, Beltaine

Beltaine is the beginning of my summer. Because this is about the time our temperatures start nudging the 90s.


Lughnasadh 

This date would technically be closer to our midsummer. And as I revere Lugh, this is one of my special days.


So what is that? Five?


And this year I've added Venus to my lineup, so maybe I'll do something for the Festival of Venus Genetrix (September 26). We'll see. I tried adding Vinalia Rustica, an Italian festival in honor of Venus (and/or Jupiter) that goes back to antiquity and takes place in August (the 19th). But...never could find anything specific about how she was revered at the time, beyond tending gardens, so just winged it with a libation in Venus' honor. We don't have grapes in my garden, but as she was also a garden goddess, I just, well, tended my flowers. :)

So, that would be seven (if I do that one in September). 

I haven't yet, but plan to, do something for maybe the Veneralia or Vinalia Urban (both in April) but we'll see.


If I add the Solstice and equinoxes (and various other dates), what would that bump it up to?  The solstice/equinoxes sometimes get combined with others. If I don't I skip them altogether. And if you watched my video of last year, you'll know there are even more! Not to mention daily devotions and then moon observations.


So, thinking about it, that's a lot of work! And do you see what I mean now to say "we all celebrate the 8 festivals" is a bit of a generalization?


I have friends who follow other pantheons who do different dates altogether.

I'll tell you a further secret: since so many holy days can get unwieldy, I admit it. Sometimes I don't do more than just mark them on the calendar and nod when I see them there, depending on what I'm doing. Sometimes, I even get lucky and release a book or two. So, I dunno. My calendar of what I do when has always been a work in progress. How about you, my fellow pagans? What are your special days?

Solar Eclipse weekend/end of August updates and I need suggestions #Sundayblogs #bloggersblast


Meme hosted by Kimberley of Caffeinated Book Reviews


*Edited to add* Blogger friends, there's a question for you, further down, toward the end of this post. I need suggestions.

Not much new to report this week. I've been busily stumping for the sale on Frigga's Lost Army (which ends tonight!)...




...and Watchmaker's Heart, of course.(And if you get them and like them, please leave a review!) I did try to take some hours away from it to try and experience the eclipse. Didn't go so well. I think I went out too late or something. But I didn't see nothing, live. (Boo...)


So I've spent a lot of time glued to the computer and let's not forget all the blogging I've done this month. I also woke up the other day with my bicep hurting, likely from all the typing. Gah!

Yes, I've been a typing/blogging madwoman this month, haven't I? I've been enjoying the challenge, and will be sad to see the topics end.What in the world should I babble about then?


(I hear you! "you should get back to writing your books!" I know.) I've also been in the post-release brain deadness (is that a word? If not, it should be!) since finishing Frigga's Lost Army. But Druid Warrior Prince is coming along swimmingly.

On the reading front, I'm about 2/3 of the way through Fires of Vesuvius. Interesting stuff! At least, I think so.  Also, about the same way through Second Summer of the Sisterhood. I watched the movie, night before last, though, and so am wondering how much from the book they actually used. Doesn't seem like much. We'll see.

Other books I picked up this week:
Kitchen Table Tarot.
Synospsis:

Learn to read with your own voice and get the answers to all of your questions.
For years, Melissa Cynova has been sitting down with friends and neighbors who are curious about the tarot. She's heard all the questions and misconceptions that can confuse newcomers (and sometimes more experienced readers, too). Kitchen Table Tarot was written as a guide for anyone looking for no-nonsense lessons with a warm, friendly, and knowledgeable teacher.
Join Melissa as she shares straightforward guidance on decks, spreads, card meanings, and symbols. Filled with real-life examples and personal explanations of what it's like to read the cards, this book tells it like it is and provides the information you need to read with confidence.

Yeah, well....it sounds good, so I plunked down my gift cards. I hope it's good. It looks like 2/3 of the book is card explanations. Since I have a book or two like that, I'm...skeptical. But a friend of mine recommended it, so we'll see.

Lastly, to my friends in affected by Hurricane Harvey, please be careful out there, and safe. Sending you thoughts of healing and strength to get through! So that's me, this week. How about you all?

AGh! Wait! Addendum. Blogger friends: I have been stung by Photo(f)bucket's slamming the doors in our faces. I was wondering...do any of y'all know, a) how much space does Blogger give us for images, and b) do you know of some place like PB where we can keep our images? I've got tons of photos from tons of posts (out of the 700+ posts here and I'd hate to try to count how many of them have Photo(f)bucket logos now. I've looked at what I *think* is my blogger images page (???) and I've used up roughly half of my space--that not counting everything that's still linked in from PB. I don't think I have the space to move all those images over here, + all my own. My only other option, if I can't find some place to save all those images is either just leave them full of PB logos (yuck!) or take them offline. I hate to do that to the authors I've hosted over the years, (to break their SEO hits by removing the posts or remove everything but one cover image from their posts) but... yeah. If I'm running out of space, I may have to. :( Suggestions? Please let me know in comments! Thanks in advance.

(And that is the only time I'm going to let this friggin' template throw big text at you because, I needs suggestions!)

Now then....
All the blogposts I've done so far (this week and others) can be seen here.

#30DaysmagicalRoots Days 21-23 Symbols symbols everywhere @Plentiful_earth #Blogs #BloggersBlast

30daysmagicalrootschallengejournal
#30DaysmagicalRoots continues with the subject:


Day 21: Symbols
What symbols do you use in your practice and why? Are there any that you are drawn to? Try carving the symbol into a candle and burning it while you meditate on that sacred symbol. You can also draw it on a piece of paper and carry it with you every day. Or find a piece of jewelry with the symbol to wear when you need a magical boost.

What symbol do I use most? Because people freak out about pentacles, yes, even some 50-70ish years after the first adoption of it by Wiccans, not that one. So I've had quite a dig to find symbols that work for me. Mostly, I gave up (and I know this is going to blow some minds and make people wonder). In the absence of that, for several years, I've worn a Stella Maris saint medal I inherited from my dad (that looks a lot like this one). So it's sort of an ancestor-come goddess medal thing. It's sad that we don't have something like a cross that we can use and not have everyone either, a) wonder *wtf* or b) freak out about. I had a gal corner me once and proselytize at me, because? I was wearing a pentacle. To heck with that. :( I came home and put it away and that was the last time I wore one. (Stella Maris--aka star of the sea--is close enough to star-ish for me. :) I've always wondered how people would react to just a plain star but never experimented.)

Aside from her, I might've shown you my pig?

(Isn't he adorable? Or she...It might be a female, but whatever...) He's representative (in my mind, at least) of Cerridwen, in Welsh Myth and also--more importantly--the Hero's Portion over which the heroes boast in The Story of Mac Dá Tho's Pig an old Irish Myth.*

(*For those of you who don't know, in a nutshell, the hero's portion was the complimentary first choice of the host's banquet, usually given to...well, the hero. Whether that be the fella that killed the most men on the battlefield that day or [in the case of the bards, the storyteller with the best story. ] You'll see an example of this in my forthcoming book Druid Warrior's Prince]:))

Er, that's the very long winded way of saying, no I don't really have one.

 Symbols that I like? Fish, cups, the Grail, all that watery stuff (hence, Stella Maris). As for the latest edition to my little family? I haven't found anything to represent her that I'm too keen on,yet. In a way, my characters do better with their jewelry than I do (like Caitlin and the necklace Arianrhod gives her). *g* I can't tell you how many times I've made something up for them but never been able to find a similar looking necklace/ring in real life. (And no, I can't design them myself, alas!)


Day 22: Self-Purification
Take a purifying bath (with sea salt for added purification if you like), smudge yourself with sage/rosemary/Palo Santo/, sprinkle with Florida Water/Holy water/Salt water, or hold a purifying stone like selenite. Take some time today to cleanse your auric field, rid yourself of any energetic ick that may be lingering, and see how much better it makes you feel. 


Smudge. *Gag cough*

Oddly enough, I did this on day 24, when I received a new tarot deck. :) (*ducks* I know, Arwen!) It's just something I've always done. However, purification via bath is one I indulge in frequently. (Well, shower. We don't technically have a bathtub! :)) Every once in a while I'll add some special scented soap to it, when I have it in my stores.


(Ironically, I've never used Florida water, probably because of the irony that something called "water" uses so much Vodka. That's makes the recipe a bit of a misnomer, doesn't it? Never mind.)


Day 23: Book of Shadows
Yes, I  have several. Don't know if you remember (or ever saw my video on it, from last year. Not much has changed from then to now (though for those of you who might remember my post from January on journaling... It's not going as well as I'd hope. I skipped all of July!). The magical journal (and this blog!) has seen more use this year then the "mundane life" journal (dear diary, edited three paragraphs today. Dear diary, edited three chapters. Dear diary, edited three words today" :)), but that even one of them has gotten so much use is a win. As for my book ...it looks a little like this:

journalbyjulidrevezzo


There are tons of downloadable "books of Shadows" pages available online, but as yet, I haven't added any into mine. Seems a bit of trouble to go to....but never say never. So it's still a work in progress.... as always with diaries. I do, however, have a...something of a book of shadows suggestions/template type thingie for my 4th tier supporters on Patreon. If you'd like to check my Patreon out, you can do so here.


Well, Ruth had to get the idea for her (fictional) diary somewhere, right? ;)

How about you? Do you have a favorite symbol you use,or way of cleansing space? or even a favorite book of shadows?

Day 20: #30daysmagicalroots challenge--magical ethics @plentiful_earth

#30DaysmagicalRoots continues with the subject:
Day 20:Magical ethics.
What are magical ethics? Write down a core list of ethics for your own practice. No judgement here-this is for you and you alone!



(Then why post them publicly? Never mind...)

Also, sorry to sneak the ten-days ago post in here between 19 and 20, folks. I can't believe I skipped those two days. Whoops! I can't be blamed. Regular readers know I don't usually blog this much every month! Especially not when I'm in the middle of launching a book and editing others)

Magical ethics. Well? While I don't follow the traditional...well, anything really, I do have a couple things. There's the usual don't steal, cheat, etc and then there's two big ones for me that sort of cover everything:

1) No love spells. Because well, a) manipulative, and b) I'm happily married so don't need to anyway.

2) I try to adhere to "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all". Keep quiet and don't make waves. Or to put it another way, leave everyone alone and hope they leave you alone. That goes for, well, all stuff as well as magical workings. meaning...

3) No curses. Oh, I may not exactly follow the rule of three (thank you Charmed for making it silly) but I do believe in Karma and hope it does its job. So, I may throw the evil scowl at someone/thing if I'm particularly ticked at them/it, but I don't generally tell people to F-off. At least not where they can hear me. :) Even if they accuse me without knowing a damned thing about me. Let me tell you a story of things I've been through and that people assume because of their first impressions of me (for instance, people have shied away from us...my family, I mean, because *shock of shocks* we're Italian [at least one side--we have a lot of sides]. No, I'm not kidding. It was a long time ago, thank the gods.) But so what? Still, I try to live by #s 2 and 3 above.

*braces self for the flying tomatoes and vitriol*

Herm, what else?


4) I try to work, as my friend Mia said, from a place of love--even if I'm pissed. :)


5) I try to work from a place of the Celtic idea of honor (Yes, I have English/Irish/French-Gaulish [we're not sure which] blood and am married into English and German and one-generation out of London, English families. I'm also Italian--and possibly Greek!). All that to say what will hurt my honor, or dishonor someone else, I try not to do. (Try being the operative word. Am I always successful? Not when I let my mouth run off with me!)

Ingredient gathering.
I don't use animal parts in my magic--which includes things like being aware of what bird feathers are on the protection/legal act. Which I didn't know about until a few months ago but now I do, so... Also, don't pick the last of ... something...the last summer flower, the last, whatever. Just because it might go to seed for next year.

Generally, anything I use in my work I get from the store or an indie creator, who I pretty much figure (hope) I can trust to be ethical in their ingredient gathering.

Other than that? There's this list from John J. Coughlin that pretty much sums it up. Quote:

  • Which of the alternatives will generate the greatest benefit – or the least amount of harm – for the greatest number of people? (Utilitarianism)
  • Does the "good" brought about by your action outweigh the potential harm that might be done to anyone? (Mills' Harm Principle)
  • Will anyone be harmed who could be considered defenseless? (Paternalism)
  • To what degree is your choice of alternatives based on your own best interest? (Objectivism)
and

  • Are you choosing the alternative that demonstrates a genuine concern for others affected by your decision and/or are you responding to a perceived need? (Ethic of Care)
  • Are you willing to make your decision a rule or policy that you and others in your situation can follow in similar situations in the future? (Kant)
Yes to all that. So that would pretty much cover the topic, I think. Thanks for reading. :)

#30daysmagicalroots days 11-12: simple spells and pantheons


#30DaysmagicalRoots continues with these subjects:

(Sneaking 11 and 12 in here because I seem to have forgot them, or erased them or something. *smacks forehead*)

Day 11 was write a spell... (This is easy, basically, stand in your happy place (backyard, sacred space) with a cup of your favorite tea. Barefoot if you can to connect with the earth. Thank your gods for their assistance (that day, that night), ask them for, whatever your intention happens to be (love, health, positive energy for your day, whatever). After you've had your fill of the drink, offer some to them pouring a little into a libation bowl, or if you're outside, into any spot you feel compelled to in your garden as if sharing it with the gods with your (more) thanks for considering your petition. If you want to write a little rhyming invocation to go with it (like Caitlin chants), you can. But you don't have to.

Or,you can even make a wish and send it, with a kiss (or howl) at the moon, if life. :) Yes. spells can be just as simple as that. 
Day 12: Deity: a) Do you work with deities? b)Why or why not? c) Are you a monotheist, dualist, polytheist, animist, etc.? d) Write a poem or prayer dedicated to a deity and give it to Them as an offering. (Bonus: share a poem or prayer you’ve written for one of your deities.)

a) Indeed, I do.

b) Why do I work with them? I've always been drawn to them.Maybe at first it was a romantic idea that sparked it in my mind to try it (hey, I can add them to this (insert story you will never see unless I'm 100 years dead first! ;)) story but they wiggled their ways into my heart and stayed there much more than any other god. That I would say is why. I'm a big myth-loving romantic, what can I say? :)

Whaddya mean you don't believe me??? Have you seen my blog or my novels? ;)

 c) mono/Polytheist... though I have one particular who's gotten the bulk of my devotion for decades, I'd still say polytheist because He's just part of a (much) larger family of gods that includes Celtic and Roman mostly...and a few others. :) And I did just put out a somewhat devotional historical fantasy novel to Frigga. So, she's on my peripherals too. A lot of the time they seem to present as Muses more than anything "Oh, hey, I have a great idea for how you can write ME into this story." *shakes head* Muses!

d) Done, years ago. Have no clue where I put the text of it. I just improvise and mostly just say "thanks for the fine day" or whatever it is thanks is needed for. Or something simple like "my lady (or lord, or lords and ladies or whatever) please...whatever and thank you for...what ever." Improvising your own is always best, in my humble opinion.

Solar eclipse, some ideas, and just a reminder .....#solareclipse

Ready for some solar eclipse vibes and magic! :) unfortunately, we've got a wait for it in my area, but...still nifty to watch on tv as it goes.  #solareclipse

Solar eclipse magic? Charge everything seems a good idea. :) I've got my tarot and crystal stuff ready to go.

<div style=

This would also be a time to let go of bad vibes, (or so I've read). There are more ideas here and here.
Or you can just skip out, watch it on tv, and...reads some good books. Frigga's Lost Army is on sale, dontcha know (for $.99). *hinthint*. 
And, oh, yeah... Tonight, I am going to be taking part in the Landslide release and solar eclipse Facebook takeover celebrating author Philip Kessler's new release. It's going on all day but my time is 7-7:30 PM CST. (I believe that's 8PM on EST. I hope I have that right. Eep!)
And remember.....

#30DaysmagicalRoots Day 19: Sacred Space. #bloggerblast @plentiful_earth #SacredSpace #BlessedBe

Next in the #30DaysmagicalRoots challenge.
How do you create sacred space for yourself? Do you cast a circle every time you work a spell? Or do you have a dedicated space that you practice in? Take some time today to settle into that space and enjoy its sacredness.


How do I? And do I even? Well... this would be (short answer) a yes, and a no. (Keep reading for the how...)

 My character Caitlin (who, yes, she's so much in my head I sometimes forget and just write "Caitlin"as if any new visitor might know who I'm talking about. :))...anyway, she does way more physical invoking or building and tearing down sacred space than I do.(Come to think of it, so do the characters in my Celtic Stewards Chronicles ) I guess that comes from longevity. But again, I'm not really a step by step type of person. Once you've practiced for a while (I think, at least in my experience) once the room is used in that way a few times, it always keeps a bit of that energy. You can feel the "sacredness" of the space when you enter said-room. There's a different vibe to it from the "outside world", one that automatically can evoke a feeling of safety and comfort for you. Maybe it comes from familiarity, but I always feel it when I come in from the outside. And honestly, in my experience, (again) if you're familiar with that sacred space, I don't think there is any need to invoke it every time. You don't "create" the sacred space, you inhabit the sacred space daily, and take it with you. 


Or, that's just the way I see it. Honestly, I don't think about it most of the time. The sacred space is just....here when I center myself. And no it's not a dedicated space. It's just...everywhere. Anywhere I can call up my own centerdness. With trappings like candles or not....

elf by Simona Fioravanti; pretty but...don't get too close there, l'il elf!



I've talked ad nauseum about my troubles with burning oils and incense in sacred space (which really sucks when it's the traditional method of communing with certain new visiting goddesses!), but if that helps you feel comfy in your sacred space, go for it.

Returning to the idea of circle, while the shape and the camaraderie of meeting in circles goes back a long way (see King Arthur's Round Table) ...in magical work?  I'm fairly sure--don't quote me, now--but from what I recall the act of "creating sacred space" came to Wicca, if I remember correctly, from Aleister Crowley and ceremonial magic, which is something I never got into.

(Too stuffy! *wrinkles nose*) And, historically, the Order of Bards, Ovates, & Druids admits the use of circles in their system only go back to Gardner and some of his followers in the 1960s). Wow. That would make it a lot newer than I'd guessed! The Greeks, supposedly, according to Burkhardt, I'm reminded via second hand, used them. The Romans? er.... I don't remember running across it in the myths. But maybe. Some say yes, some say no. Magic was frowned upon (outlawed?) in ancient Rome, and they might be the (or at least one) origin of the stereotypical witch, so I'm kind of doubting it. But since they borrowed so much from Greece, maybe? (Another thing to look into!)

So supposing they didn't and it was only concocted in the 16th century or even the 60s, is it necessary for our work? That's the question that fuels a lot of my meditations and workings these days.I even have a cord for such work...beautiful thing my friend Beth made me a while back. You know what? I forget to use it more often than not. *facepalm* Let's just say it does the trick from where it's stored. :)

For a newbie I would say invoking a circle (ala the Farrars or Scott Cunningham's templates,  complete with maybe lighting candles, setting out the four elements, if that feels right to you) might not be a bad habit to get into and see how it feels for yourself. At the very least it can teach you how to call up a magical mindset when setting out to do your ritual/working. And if it works for you, great! Cast a circle to set up sacred space.

Also, simply walking the demarcation of your circle a few times (if you have the space to do it) can work too-- as it can for raising energy, ala my last post.

(Just to be real for a moment, I've been in group circles and stepped right over the edge of the circle, and can't tell the difference. Does that mean they didn't invoke it right? No. It's just the way it is. Sacred Space has more of a "shwoop" effect in fiction than in real life[it's where the two diverge]--same thing with "raising cones of power" if you ask me. The act of doing that never left me anything but exhausted. Exercised. Yes, that's good, but magical? Meh.).  Maybe, again, that's from years and years of using the same space.

After a while, you'll find a good way of involving sacred space in your normal space doesn't really have to take more than finding a peaceful place where you can do whatever it is you need to do to quiet your mind and focus on whatever your magical intent is. Like anything, once you learn the basics, set them in stone, as it were, you won't really have to think about it much. :) Like Joseph Campbell says above, let it be where you love to be.

So, what about you? How do you invoke sacred space?

#30DaysmagicalRoots Days 16 -18 Connecting to Mother Earth & more #bloggerblast

30 days of magickal roots challenge banner Juli D. Revezzo's blog
#30DaysmagicalRoots continues.


Day 16: Connect with Mother Earth.

Go outside! Find a tree to sit with for a while. Maybe clean up if there is garbage around it. Let today be a day of service to Mother Earth.

 Ooh! Outside??? Are you mad?? It has been 92-ish degrees every day! :) Just kidding--well, not about the hot because it has  been hot and (as I wrote up this section, it was).... thundering. But the "are you mad" part. *g*  But I managed to get out, this 16th day, and relocate a few of those stray plants I was telling you about in my "Plant magic" portion of a recent post. So, I had this plant that had sprouted in the ground and quite frankly, gotten far too big for its current pad, so dilemma. Large plant, don't want to pull it out or mow over it, so I had to stick my fingers into ye ole Mother Potting Soil to give it a new home. (Hey, it's dirt, it works).


Day 17: Raise some energy. 

Try chanting, singing, drumming, or dancing! Turn some tunes on and work on that Stevie Nicks spin. When you’re feeling complete throw your arms up and send it shooting out through your hands into the Universe.

While my long time readers know I love Stevie Nicks, this time, I left her out of the work. :( Instead, I clapped my hands, drummed on my knee, and rubbed my hands together fast. All of those things work to raise energy. The tricky part is that I usually only do this during the sabbats or the full moon. So, keeping in mind this is the week of a waning moon, Seems best to remind our readers that waning/dark moons=getting rid of something, some garbage energy in your life. When the moon waxes I'll probably re-charge some of my special pieces of jewelry, maybe. Maybe with the eclipse.

(*Cue Pink Floyd)


Day 18: Elemental magic

Spend some time today working with and acknowledging the elements of your practice. Do you honor the Land/Sea/Sky elements, or the elements of water, fire, air, and earth, or something else? why do you work with those elements and what have they brought to your life?


Unfortunately, today, I'm not around my element as it would be in nature. Can't see the water, except for the rain (which hasn't happened today) or the water from the spiggot. Land/Sea/Sky...well, the sky is nice and blue so stepping outside... Ya know? I don't think I've ever worked sky magic? Unless you count throwing a kiss to the full moon and/or wishing on a star.

But generally, I'm a water baby and... well, it depends on how strict you want to be in where the elementals are. Most of the time, I'm not around natural bodies of water, close enough to work magic with them. But I personally don't see why some of them can't flit around the municipal water supplies. If I  have to pour a libation inside, (say in the sink--hello, Lady of Drains!) then I'll run water after it to, I guess, "flush it into the universal stream". If I happen to be at the beach I might do something like visualize flinging the magic out into/onto the waves. So, that's how I would do that....Or just visualization (say, see something spiraling to  [for bringing good in]  you or away from you [for banishing] on a wave or a waterspout).

(However, getting a wee bit personal now,  I will say there's a bad habit I've been trying to "flush away"/get rid of, and though I've worked banishing "dumps" many times for it, it never has completely gone away,  and even though everything White Witch says in her video on Spellwork is true, none of those apply to the habit I'd like to break; in other words, I've still not completely broken it. So ...yeah, the energy sometimes goes off into Left Field and doesn't always "work" so to speak. This is the part of it all where the skeptic in me comes out.

Too much information. Never mind....

Anywho, that would be about it. Woohoo! Caught up! :) Do you do any of these things? And if so, how? Share in the comments, if you'd like to. :)

Days 13-15: #30daysmagicalroots challenge--tools (sort of) @plentiful_earth #WitchBlogWed


#30DaysmagicalRoots continues with these subjects:



Day 13: Stones and Crystals. While I like amethyst, and I have some lovely rocks on my altar, I wouldn't say I actually work with stones. Er, well? I am reminded yes. I did a whole post on the subject last year that shares some of my rocks and crystal collection and how I "use" it, when I do. You can see that here. (and do excuse the two different fonts in that post. I'm still struggling with this ridiculous "responsive" template. Responsive, my foot!)

Ahem.

Day 14: incense: Create an incense recipe to help you focus on your daily practice. Here is an article on making herbal incense from Mother Earth Living (Bonus points if you make it and use it for the rest of the month.)

I've mentioned this a time or two on here before, because of allergies and the way ash affects the a/c filters, I'm very wary of it, so I don't use it anymore (I used to, but not anymore). Just thinking about it is tickling the allergies. (*sneezes* excuse me!)

I can't really make one, in that light, but my friend Beth  makes lovely incenses. You can check her out here. (and yes, I have used hers before, and can attest, they're worth checking out--even if I don't use them now).

Day 15: Kitchen Witchery: How can you make your meal a magical one? Here are three simple acts of kitchen witchery you can do today: Kitchen Witchery Magic.

Oh, um....Let's see. I try not to grumble or dwell on "bad" thoughts while cooking. Or making our morning coffee (which is the easiest of them all because I'm usually concentrating on being awake enough to use the coffeemaker!). I've had trouble from not being awake enough, let me tell you! Whenever I mix something, like a butter into the mashed potatoes, or soup on the stove, or a cake mix or whatever needs stirring, I'll always stir in a clockwise direction, to (hopefully) bring in the good, so to speak. This of course extends to stirring sugar into coffee/honey into tea. (If you ever wondered where my character Caitlin got it, that's where. It's an actual real thing). Oh, and I don't know if this counts, though we do tend to eat a lot of...I'm just going to say it, crap, I do try to be conscientious about how much of it comes in. Not always successful, (where are my chips??) but I do try. I also recycle whatever I can.

And that, friends, I believe, brings us up to yesterday.

Meditation, plant magic, and more--#30daysmagicalroots days8-10 @plentiful_earth #blogs #BloggersBlast

meditation and more, author Juli D. Revezzo. Pic by Brian Jeffery Beggerly

#30daysmagicalroots fun continues. The prompt for day 8 Meditation.

I try to meditate before ritual, have tried for years. Not very successfully, I must say. I envy those who can just plop down and calm their minds within five seconds. The only time that seems to happen for me is when I am headed off to bed, and then it's off to dreamland.

My go to had always been the tree meditation...or back in the beginning it was. I had an audiobook (tape) of Starhawk's Spiral Dance (which, now I can't put my hands on, but I know it's here in my collection somewhere! Amazon doesn't have the audiobook even listed so never mind) that had the meditation in it, and I used that for quite a while. Something like this, I think.

These days, or since I've started plucking at reading tarot (still learning!) I use that as my meditation. If it's nice, I'll go sit in nature, center myself as I would do at the end of my Yoga practice, for just a few moments, then start shuffling and pull a few cards.

If I were to write one? Well...herm, that would take some thinkin' to come up with something good that I'd be comfortable sharing. I've never actually scripted one for use outside a book before. Not sure if I won't feel silly sharing it.


Oh and let's just go do a few more since I'm so far behind.

Day 9: Daily Practices Sometimes (which doesn't make it daily, does it?) I will check in with my tarot cards, just, (as some of the tutors suggests) to get a general feel for the day. The years before I started working with tarot cards, I'd go through the house, and try banishing the bad energy of the day before--usually, I'll do this right before going to bed. So technically, that's a nightly practice. In the mornings, I'll share my coffee with my patron gods.

And that pretty much sums up my daily practices.

Day 10: Plant allies. Er.... I would like to say something very druidic like, "it's the oak tree"! And if I recall right, we had a huge oak tree (?) in the backyard of the house I grew up in. I seem to recall playing around yard it, as a little girl. I even remember, that one time when I fell into the canal, looking up at it through the water (yes, I did. What do you mean you can't breathe through water? I'm a fish, remember!) Anyway, I remember thinking the tree looked cool through the ripples. I don't rightly recall if it was an oak, mind you. I also had orange and (specifically) tangerine trees around me as a kid, and many other plants. These days, now that I'm all grown up and a homeowner, I have a garden,but ...I've never thought of it that way. Allies? Maybe so... If I had to choose one specific plant from my yard, though, I guess I'd say it would be my... I think it's a Persian shield. Because they're all over the bloody place. Problem?

As far as I can find, there's no magickal correspondences for the plant at all (Strange, given its name, but damned if I can find one.) Scott Cunningham doesn't even mention it in his  Encyclopedia of Magickal Herbs! But I figure that's because he was centered in California and that coast and who knows? Maybe he'd never seen Persian Shield. Mine don't quite look like all the shiny dark verigated purple, mind you. We let it grow on its own so its mostly brownish purple, and in a pot out back, right now, grew to half my size, and prompt fell over--from the heat. This seems to happen to it every year, poor thing. I need to probably cut it back. But that's just one pot, mind you. (well, four if you count that some have popped up in other pots around the porch). We have some outside the porch, under a drain, and its exploded. There's some there, some little babies all over the yard, now. I pick 'em out from time to time, but the birds or the wind or something just keep repopulating them. But it's purple so I'm happy with it. But magickal correspondence? *shrugs* Damned if I know.

If I had to take a stab at it, (since no one else in the entire web or herbal section of the pagan shelves seem to have done so), I'd have to say multiplication would be a good guess. (because they can go everywhere!!) And I've often wondered why no one's ever thought to publish that it might have shielding properties. (Hello...it is called Persian Shield, after all) But again, maybe that's because all the writers of the herbals weren't living in...well, here in the south. We have a lot of strange plants and bugs here that get overlooked in the official Llewellyn guides. (we have to buy things like lavender and lilac, narcissus, hyacinth...I've heard all those are hard to cultivate here. Cuban oregano does good (again, is that in Cunningham's? Nope) and I've heard "Oh you can grow lavender, even in full sun.") No.I guess those folks have magic green thumbs, because mine just keeled over and died. I've had tall rosemary for years before it finally died (due to a bad winter). My poor fennel didn't make it through one season.We have something that reminds me of mistletoe (the tree gives off red berries) but I'm not sure that's what it is--and we have quite a few other things, but the most prevalent is that blasted Persian shield. :)


Boy, I wrote more in that point that I meant to! Moving on...

I might try to write a guided mediation one day, though, as this now has me thinking about it!

And breathe....:)

Writing warriors 6--What does a soldier learn? #SundaySnippet


Before I start off on this entry, I need to let y'all know, I'm going to be chatting about this book (FRIGGA'S LOST ARMY)--and more!--on the Pagan Musings Podcast tonight at 9PM EST. I hope y'all tune in!

****

Now then, Continuing from where we left off in last time:

(When they were finished,) the soldiers rounded them all up and forced them to march from the battlefield. (Benjamin) fell back beside Tommy.
“How’d you understand their gibberish?”
“My Grandma has a neighbor.”
“An Italian neighbor out in the sticks?”
“By way of New York.”
“And he gave you lessons?”
“I gleaned enough. ‘Come here. Go. Get off my property’.”
Another of their company laughed. “Get off his daughter, he means.”

*cheeky grin* A little levity for their day before...what happens next! What does happen to our poor Ben and friends? You'll have to read to find out!

Once again, here's the synopsis:


In the winter of 1943, Benjamin is just a grunt and Army cook—until he finds himself captured, along with his unit, taken prisoner by Mussolini's troops after the Battle of Tunisia.

Transported to a POW camp in Italy, Benjamin is plagued with intense visions of the Norse Goddess Frigga and her retinue of Valkyries, berserkers, and other magical beings.

When he encounters a woman bearing an uncanny resemblance to the goddess, he wonders if he hasn’t been entangled in a battle between the natural and the supernatural—a battle for the present and the future.

And yes, it's available at Amazon for your purchasing and/or Kindle Unlimited. It's also in paperback.
