We dedicate ourselves
to the path of the everyday mystic
in the temple of the ordinary,
this earth,
a teacher and guide,
these stars,
our rosary,
this sky a chapel of awe,
this ground,
a temple of wisdom.
We are disciples of the daily,
acolytes of joy,
students of the sacred,
right where we are,
our lives and landscapes
a holy text of being.
So happy to announce the release of my newest book of poems: In the Temple of the Ordinary, vol. 2! It is available right now via Amazon and Barnes and Noble and also open for pre-order on Kindle.

True Love's Kiss: A Date Night Ritual

As the world starts to heal, perhaps you are thinking about meeting that special someone for a face-to-face date for the first time in a very long while. And you, clever one, planned it on a new moon night. If this new moon happens to be in the signs of Taurus, Scorpio, Libra, or Pisces, you are really in for a treat tonight! Here is the last-minute preparation to guarantee you will have the time of your life. Gather the following ritual elements:

  • 2 red candles
  • Your favorite essential oil (mine is vamber, a concoction of equal parts vanilla and amber oils that makes me feel instantly erotic)
  • Thorn of a rose

Take the two red candles and anoint them with your essential oil. Take the thorn and scratch your name on one candle and your lover’s name on the other. Anoint yourself between your breasts and over your heart, and then speak these words aloud twice:

Las Vegas Pagan Pride Day is Back

I'll be signing my book Asatru: A Beginner's Guide to the Heathen Path at Las Vegas Pagan Pride Day, November 11, 2023, at Paradise Park. I'm really excited! This is the first time my local PPD has been back since the pandemic started. It's an outdoor event so it's among the safer choices for pandemic safety, but because it's outdoors Las Vegas holds our PPD in November rather than September like most other cities do. I've been wanting to sign my book at my local PPD since my book came out, but since my book came out in 2020 I didn't get a chance to do that before now. I'll also be making a short presentation about Asatru and answering questions as part of my booksigning. 

My new book is a longer, updated version of my out-of-print book Asatru For Beginners. Asatru: A Beginner's Guide to the Heathen Path is available in print, ebook, audiobook, and audio CD.

Leap! A Love Story: Reading from a Minoan gay romance

I've shared readings from my other novels on YouTube, so I figured I should do likewise for my latest work of fiction, Leap! A Love Story. It's my first foray into romance, and of course it has a Minoan theme. It's set in Phaistos, the second-largest Minoan city (after Knossos) in about the year 1650 BCE, a generation or two before the Thera eruption.

The main character is Adelphos, the Cattle Master of Phaistos. He's in charge of the temple's herds, including the bulls that are trained for leaping. Which puts him in regular contact with the bull leapers, one of whom catches his eye.

A Lover's Touch: Sensuality Spell

I always giggle when I see over-the-counter sesame body oil in the pharmacy. Unknowingly, a woman will apply sesame oil and never understand why she feels so much sexier and attracts more glances her way. While that marketplace version will do in a pinch, a potion you’ve made yourself will be ten times as effective. You can use it as a skin softener or a massage oil.

In a cup of almond and sesame oil, add twenty drops of musk, sandalwood, or orange blossom oil. Shake well, then heat very slowly and carefully. I use a clay oil warmer with a votive candle beneath, but the stovetop will do, making sure the flame is set very low.

October is here
with her cooling breezes
and breaths of pause,
her yellowing leaves
and orange moon,
her whispers and her wandering,
her migrating dreams
and her changing stories.
She invites us to stop and listen.
She invites us to open our hands
and our hearts
and to release our burdens,
our sorrows
and our shames.
She invites us to step
into a season of enchantment,
a time when magic
is close to the skin,
when ancestors speak and hearts listen.
She invites us to steep
in our own wondering.
She invites us to deepen and renew,
to remember and to soften.
She invites us
to settle into mystery,
into not knowing,
and home.

Happy October! Welcome to this month of Mystery and Enchantment. How are you walking with mystery this month? What is enchanting you?

I have a free #30DaysofGoddess practice update for October available for you here: #30DaysofGoddess.
