Queer Magic – Honouring my Deadname as an Ancestor

I cannot talk for everyone who identifies as Queer, Trans or Non Binary – I can only talk from my own experience as that is the only experience I fully know.  When I came out as non-binary, I went through a stage of anger and regret. I was angry that it took me so long… Continue reading Queer Magic – Honouring my Deadname as an Ancestor

Queer Magic and Non-Binary Polarity

Another year, another turning of the wheel in crazy times.   I’m becoming sad as Ostara approaches, as it’s a reminder of how things have changed. With the Delta variant, I’m not comfortable with us as the Riverina & Snowy Pagans catching up as we’re all apart of different LGA’s and we’re all in various… Continue reading Queer Magic and Non-Binary Polarity

Personal Blog Project – Herne the Hunter – A(ntlers and Deer)

I have really missed the Pagan Blog Project. It hasn’t happened in a few years, so I thought I would do one of my own but on a specific topic – Herne the Hunter. When I am able I will be following the alphabet, and creating a blog based around a subtopic of that letter.… Continue reading Personal Blog Project – Herne the Hunter – A(ntlers and Deer)

These last two-three years have brought immense changes for me. I came out as non-binary, left my husband, changed my name, found my soul mate, shed a bunch of weight after surgery that I have likened to Herne’s accident with the stag. I have shed so much of my old self, through the shedding of… Continue reading Finding yourself after death

To the Sabbat I will Ride

Brightest Blessings of the Solstice to you all. I’ve always loved the Winter Solstice. I’ve always loved being cold, knowing I could rug up. I love the sound of rain on the metal roof, the freshness in the air, the greening of the hills and how the eucalyptus leaves get this different haze as the… Continue reading To the Sabbat I will Ride

How “coming out” strengthened my relationship with the Gods

Recently this image has been recirculating on FB. It is a capture of a tweet by Sir Ian McKellen expressing how he’s never met a person who regretted coming out [as LGBTQIA]. When a friend posted it, I commented how I’m one of those people. I came out of the closet as non-binary in May… Continue reading How “coming out” strengthened my relationship with the Gods

Riverina & Snowy Pagans – a year travelling the Wheel

This weekend the Riverina and Snowy Pagans celebrated our 2nd Ostara, marking one year of celebrating the Wheel within our region. The group formed on Facebook in May last year after I moved to the Riverina from Sydney and missed the amazing Sydney Pagan community. I wanted to connect with others in my new region,… Continue reading Riverina & Snowy Pagans – a year travelling the Wheel
