The Lessons of 2020 and the Emperor Year

I think we can all agree that 2020 was a difficult year. I have already watched, read, and listened to multiple videos, articles, and podcasts that have outlined some of the more life-changing events that happened during the past year. 2020 brought death, destruction, separation, and violence in many different aspects. From other perspectives, however, […]

Samhain: The Last Harvest

Over the years, my Samhain rituals have morphed and evolved over time.

Practical Magic

Something interesting has been happening to me on this path, and I thought I would share it so that if anyone else was experiencing this, they would know that they were not alone. I’m not sure at this point how long I have been identifying as a Pagan. Perhaps three years, if I really stop […]
