Happy Beltane!

For this Beltane I did a ritual for bringing abundance and creative fertility.

I used a green candle for the Green Man and a red candle for the May queen for their unification. I also used my teapot cauldron to burn my wishes this season.

With the candles I jumped over them 3 times saying this spell:

“Let abundance overflow and cease all my woes!”

I also did a few readings today as well as my daily tarot reading. I dont have pics, but they were from the Viking Oracle and the Dragonfae Oracle. The overall message? Trust the gods and goddesses and keep learning and growing without being stagnant and retarding (not meant towards those with special needs).

Also…to love and accept my divine feminine sexuality. Fitting for today. I came out this year as a lesbian so I’m all for the feminine sexuality indeed.

I also dedicated a green tea, apple and elderflower drink to the Fae. They were delighted even though They can taste everything I do from a spell I casted well over a year ago.

I also made lavender and rose honey pancakes. These are the perfect Beltane treats. Naturally the recipe is below. But these are delightful and a great treat to this beautiful day.

Beltane Lavender and Rose Pancakes

  • In two separate small dishes put crushed rose buds in one and lavender in the other.
  • 1 tbls for each.
  • Add 2 tbls of sugar to each dish.
  • Add 1/2 cup of boiling water to each dish.
  • Steep for 5-7 mins.
  • In a pyrex dish add 1 1/2 cups of self rising flour.
  • Add a teaspoon of honey.
  • Add a tsp of sugar.
  • Add a tsp of poppy seeds.
  • Once well steeped, strain the floral teas into the pyrex dish.
  • Add petals from the mixtures as desired.
  • In a pan use coconut oil to grease.
  • After well stirred add to the pan.
  • Cook on medium to medium high and cook until golden brown. Enjoy!

Thanks for reading yall and happy witching!

Happy Mounikhia and the “Pink” Moon!

The festival in Athens celebrating Artemis for Her bright full moonlight giving the the advantage for success.

Earlier today I helped a baby robin be reunited with his parents and sister. He was quite determined to stay on my hand but once I found the bush his family was in he hopped right off. They quickly gathered him back to his nest. Artemis approved.

But for the festival I made her these little round cakes. Not exactly amphiphontes but Artemis guided me through this recipe. She said She wanted something earthy and sweet and these definitely hit the mark.

I also filmed the pink moon the other night. It seems fitting to add it here as well since it was Her moonlight that won the battle.

Twas a lovely evening indeed!

Recipe for cakes down below and happy witching!

Unconventional Amphiphontes

  • 1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup of water
  • 3 tbls of sugar
  • 1 tbl of honey
  • 1 tbl of poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp of cocoa powder
  • 1 crushed nutmeg
  • Stirr and place in a muffin sheet
  • Oven heated at 400°F
  • Bake for 12-15 mins

Daily Tarot Reading: 4/26/21 And Guidance of the Week! A

Additional advice was the Ace of Wands.

I’ve been trying to do a daily tarot reading for myself every morning. Doesn’t always work but when it does I can see how the day can progress.

I ordered this very deck so hopefully it will come soon!

So this reading today is pretty much about exploring creativity, not getting into bad habits, and overall being a good communicator with good intent.

Now for the guidance of the week…

Another creative card. It talks about how the desert increases creativity especially in the spirtual desert.

Thanks for reading and happy witching!

Dedication Ritual for Hekate with Pisces in Dark Moon. Plus Celebrating SHINee’s Jonghyun’s Birthday!

Tonight I rededicated myself to the Goddess Hekate. She and I have spent quite a few lifetimes together and I’m glad I was finally able to be in the right mindset to work with Her again. Her signs were everywhere after I decided not to work with Her back in 2016. But Her love for me, at least in this lifetime, shows that no matter how one bad time (both in this lifetime and in one other) can turn into something beautiful.

I made some bread for Her (recipe below) while my dog Lucas watched in curiosity. The three candles are all dedicated to spirits, reapers, and ghosts I work with.

I wanted Jonghyun to be a part of the ritual more or less because he kind of asked. Not with words this time but with his aura. I could tell he was wanting some love so naturally it was the perfect time to include him.

We officially celebrated his birthday that morning around 2am-4am (Korean time would have still been the 8th). He got to see what his fortune was from a fortune cookie I got from PF Changs a few months back. Haha I hate these cookies, but him and R find them fun. We watched documentaries on Mormon polygamy and pretty much hung out.

But during the day I wanted to focus on preparing for the ritual with Hekate.

Before cooking with Her during twilight, I did astral travel with Her to Her cave where She gave me a wine colored tea that was very earthy. She then led me out of Her cave and we followed a path until I saw one of my past lives (we’ll call her L) in the woods. She has been astral travelling on her own (she’s the only one I allow to do this) where she has collected fruits and breads as a peace offering.

My spirit children with Kunxi (reaper) made a mess of some Others’ lives and I went there with L and Hekate to mend relations. It was just a situation that got blown out of proportion apparently. So offering these things felt right. I mean what do you do when your kid has a broken heart but you liked their lover? So I told the elder, or one of the main elders, that there was no ill will on my part and hoped they didn’t suffer too much because of them. Naturally I apologized on behalf of my spirit kids (now around 18). The elder told me not to worry and there was no I’ll will on her part. With that we said goodbye and I was ready to cook.

After that then came the bread making in the dark with the dog. After the bread was made it was night and since I had made a weather spell earlier that day to not rain during this time, Sirius (Hekate’s star) shone bright and brilliant as you can see above.

What it was like earlier in contrast to the above pictures.

During the ritual I set my keys, wolf Grimoire, and the bread by the crossroad of my culdisac. I pricked my finger and made a vow to one day become her priestess and to dedicate this life to Her. Earlier that day She told me that while Longmu is indeed my mother Goddess, Hekate is my matron and teacher.

I am excited for the road ahead. Finally able to say I know my path.

Alright now what yall been waiting for. The recipe for my offering bread.

Basic Offering Bread for Hekate:

  • 2 cups all purpose flower
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 large egg
  • Cinnamon powder to taste
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Garlic salt to taste
  • Minced garlic to taste.
  • 2 table spoons of nutritional yeast.
  • Mix in pyrex dish until batter is smooth.
  • In a small frying pan add roughly 1 tablespoon of olive oil for each flatbread.
  • Cook on medium low.
  • Wait until the edges of the side facing you are crisp. Flip and allow bubbles to form until the other side is cooked.
  • Then enjoy!

Alright, thanks for reading and happy witching!

Having Personal Relationships with Deities and Spirits Rather than Formal. Gatekeeping in Both Regards.

I never really could be formal. In all honesty the times I’ve tried to it’s failed. I suppose the most formal I’ve ever been was with Yah and Anubis but even then those small formal gestures lifted quickly. Hard to say how exactly and who dropped the formal language first, most likely me, but nevertheless I want to talk about the difference a lot of us witches have with our deities and how gatekeeping is abound in both camps.

Let’s start with my camp. Team who gives a fuck about formalities? While in a lot of ways I see the purpose of being formal, for the most part I don’t. A Goddess or God to me is Someone Whom I want in my life and with my first intention want around forever. So it’s odd to me to be so very grandiose. I guess you can say I like to get to know them as friends before officially working with them. This kind of work depends on personal vs external, but nonetheless if i don’t have a strong connection with that deity we never work together.

I have seen though people take this too far and say in so many words or less that their devotion to said deity out ways another person’s experience. Bull. Devotion is great but many a times I’ve seen deities not want any of their devotees to act as oracles nor enter into any kind of clergy role.

On the flip side. Side let’s be uber formal with our deities, there is too much ritual and too much involved to speak to the gods. Not that the work or ritual doesn’t have it’s merit, but it’s certainly not the only way to communicate with deities. A lot of organized religion and circles do this because at one point said deity liked it that way at the time, but and while tradition is great, one can gatekeep new instruction from said deity by being bogged down by past rituals.

Both sides have to grow to realize that there can be a happy medium. You can be as formal or informal as you see fit. No one defines your relationship to the Divine other than you and the Divine.

That being said, one has to use caution when working with others. If you’re not on the same page then how do expect to grow? You won’t. You’ll be kept down and be prevented from experiencing the full glory of your potential.

When it comes to formalities let the Gods be the deciding factor. Some require specific instructions, others are as free to use informal language as much as you want. It all depends. So this argument in modern witchcraft needs to be put on the back burner. Let’s settle this here that both have merit and use and not everyone fits neatly into ritualistic box nor a lasse-fair relationship with their deity(ies).

Work out with your deities what language and ritual to use works best for you and happy witching!

Giving Into Fate.

So I am very well aware that Hecate or Hekate very much wants to work with me. We tried this relationship once back in 2014-2016. I tested and failed and my punishment was madness. But I have come to realize, the madness was a gift. I wasn’t ready for any kind of priestess work. Especially since I was told often by Hecate that She wanted me to become a goddess. That’s something I’m not comfortable with, but instead of listening back then I offended Her by not listening to reason. She was testing me to see if I wanted power.

I passed that part but failed to listen why. She wanted me to have ambition but not too much. But back then I had very little ambition due to being gatekept by ex friends. I kept thinking I was lesser even though I had very little trials to go through at the times. Deities were blessing me left and right and my ex friend was jealous of it. They came out and said so. Hiding was the best form of not feeling like I was hurting someone else’s spiritual growth.

But Hecate felt that was very wrong of me to do. Why suppress and digress when I could of had success. I guess back then I felt like I needed tribulation to experience real divine love. That was the ptsd and the religious trauma talking plus being under the same roof as my oppressor at the time. Hecate wanted to give me power and responsibility knowing full well my intention would be to work and not have others do my work.

Becoming a magikal healer is something I’ve always wanted to do. But to heal you must reveal. And to reveal myself would be revealing my past lives and their effect on my life today. That kind of vulnerability would be hard for me but even if I’m deemed insane at least I won’t be controlled by the mundane.

So this next Pisces Dark Moon I’ll be signing a contract with Hecate that I am ready now to be on the track again to becoming her Priestess. How exactly what are the steps to that? Well, I’m not too sure except I would need to learn under a priestess myself. Searching for one is another thing entirely as is certification. But I feel I am at a place now where I can devote myself again.

The one thing that I wish to accomplish is to allow new witches the same unbiased approach to magik and to allow them to grow without gatekeeping their experiences.

Hopefully, things will be different this time. At least a good kind of different. I am not friends with that person anymore and since then I have felt stronger in my magik. Energy vampires, even ones that claim being an ex vampire, are still going to take your energy and make it theirs. I allowed it more times than once with ex friends. Another thing is I feel more mature in my magik. Being in my early thirties and having done the craft for 16 years the cycle feels complete somehow, ready to start something new.

This spring has had some sadness but ultimately had some hopeful beginnings.

I’ll update everyone further once I have done the ritual.

Happy Witching ya’ll!
