Blessed be dear ones.
Wonderful things happened when I was invited for a social and spiritual circle weekend retreat with five of my Pagan sisters.
In my last article, I talked about having my gender reassignment surgery two weeks ago. Until that time, I was always a little uncomfortable being invited to women-only gatherings. That changed this weekend.

Who are those Watchers, anyway? We’ve all asked that question at one point, at least those of us who regularly cast sacred circles or work with correspondence lists and the effects of the elements or the cardinal directions generally associated with many Pagan traditions, Wicca among them. Just what exactly are the Watchers who watch us from within those Watchtowers?
Here is a beautiful chant I use, that you might be interested, to get Closer to the Great Goddess.
Blessings to you all
On the subject of Italian Witchcraft here is a Magickal Lady with a very colourful history.
I have also posted an article on Aradia earlier on if you are interested in finding out about some of the Strega beliefs. Just go to search on our CL and type Aradia. A beautiful book written in the 1900 century by Godfrey Leyland called Aradia, the Gospel of Witches. Aradia was the daughter of Diana and Lucifer, in Greek History they were the Twins Artemis and her brother Apollo. She was born from the Goddess of the moon and the God of the Sun.
Blessings to all and one

Imbolc is a cross-quarter day midway between the winter solstice (Yule) and the spring equinox (Ostara) and is the celebration of the banishing of winter, the imminent arrival of Spring and the stirring of new life in the earth. Imbolc recognizes the maiden aspect of the triple goddess – the fresh, the young, the naïve, the new – and is strongly connected with the Goddess Brigid. It is associated with and also known as the festivals of Oimelc, Imbolg, Imbolic (Irish), Candlemas (British), Feast of Torches, Lupercalia (Italian/Latin), Brigid’s Day, and Brigantia (Scottish).
Recently, I’ve discovered that there are a handful of people who really dislike non-traditional (eclectic) witchcraft, and want to tell me how wrong I am for following my intuition. My practice and I have both been denigrated and called names. If I were to react to them, it’d eat a lot of my energy and time, and it’s not my mission to interact with haters. I’ve found another way to deal with the trolls. It’s called an “energy flip.”
All across the world, people are gathering in preparation for the full moon. They cast their circles, one by one, and enter the space between the worlds. Our languages are various; our origins, everywhere; our gods, diverse. We are witches and Pagans at the height of power! Hail the full moon!
