May You Be As Resilient As Fleas!

I’d like to blame it all on human caused climate change.  The ongoing drought in California, and the slightly higher temperatures, mean they never really had an interruption in their natural reproductive cycles.  But the truth is I’d also been pretty lax in vacuuming the carpets through the winter and spring.  One of the consequences of depression (part of the wiring of my brain) and other health issues I deal with, is that when I’m tired, simple tasks become overwhelming.  Adding a new, albeit wonderful, commitment to my work in November of 2013, put me just at the edge of tired more often than not.  So the new breeding cycles (now our regional norm) were happening inside my home ecosystem as well as outside.

   Last time we focused on making a potion.  Today it’s about the condenser.

   A condenser starts of with a certain volume of fluid which is boiled until that volume is half the original amount—it is condensed, hence its name.

PaganNewsBeagle Watery Wednesday Community News August 20

Today's Watery Wednesday emphasizes community news from all over our wonderful movement of Pagans, Heathens, Witches, Wiccans, and polytheists. Lots of things moving and shaking today!

On the Norse Mythology blog, we hear from Master Sergeant (MSgt) Matt Walters, who led the campaign to convince the US Air Force to include Ásatrú and Heathenry as options in its religious preference list.

My Children for My Children

If ever I've heard Earth speak, it was in that moment.

Early August: a windy hilltop in western Wisconsin. We've called to her, our beloved Earth of many summers. She stands here in our midst, her hands on the swelling curve of her belly, and her look to us is love.

She cries out. She is in labor now. She crouches in the birth-squat and we dance for her. We labor with her in her birthing, until that final long-drawn cry of triumph. Our circling stills. In the windblown silence, she draws forth from beneath her skirts the newly-born, the god-loaf. We cheer them, him and her.

PaganNewsBeagle Fiery Tuesday August 19

There's lots to be fired up about today! In an environment awash with activist news, today we are concentrating on some of the stories we've come across that *aren't* being covered by Big Media: an African witch who saved Tutsis during the Rwandan genocide, Pagan civil rights activists speak out, Indigenous People's Day, and a trip with the Icelandic Pirate Party. Enjoy your day!

This story of a courageous African healer who used her Craft (and a good deal of guile) to save others from the rampaging mobs during the Rwandan genocide is an inspiration.

The woman who started the campaign to remove the 10 Commandments monument at City Hall in Bloomfield, New Mexico speaks about her faith, life, and the place of religion in the public square.

I periodically run across blogs proclaiming that the shadowy guides who control spiritual evolution on this planet are divided into Good and Evil contingents—and that our religious and metaphysical organizations have become unwitting pawns of the Evil ones. According to these disaffected souls, any organization you can think of has been taken-over by the Dark Side: the Catholic Church, the Masons, the Theosophical Society, A.M.O.R.C., Self-Realization Fellowship, Eckankar, the Mormons, Wicca. You can't trust anyone!      

How to evaluate such extreme accusations? This is what my life experience has taught me:
