It’s that time of year again. The stores are chock full of chocolate eggs, there are bunny decorations and fun things for children to occupy themselves with. The hot cross buns came out sometime in January – there are even cards with gorgeous symbols of Spring and fertility (when did giving cards at Easter become… Continue reading Traditional vs. Local – How do you celebrate the festivals of the land?
I’ve been putting off writing about this for two reasons. One, I’m stupid busy at work, having finished up completely on one project and catching up on my new project. Second, I’m still processing what happened over the weekend! Last weekend (March 21-23) I drove down to Canberra for the weekend to attend the Mabon… Continue reading Mabon Autumn Gathering 2014

My friends will just need to excuse the masking tape I’ve used to tie everything together, I couldn’t find my wire clippers. In honour of Samhain and my ancestors from the northern lands, I did do a… Continue reading Sovereignty

This is for my fellow Pagans who hear Herne’s call to them, and are interested in getting… Continue reading Hearing Herne’s Call

I love seeing rain, and tilting my head back and opening my mouth, letting the drops hit my tongue like I… Continue reading Honouring the Past, and Embracing the Present
