Year and a Day

Hi everyone, it's another beautiful night and here I am reading all about my favorite thing :) In my last post I had said I was going to pick up a book. I didn't actually go get it, but had it delivered to my e-reader. I just started Wicca: A Year & A Day: 366 Days of Spiritual Practice in the Craft of the Wise  by Timothy Roderick.I've read among many blogs, book reviews, and other fabulous essays that this was a very good place to start for a solitary witchlet starting her journey. I'm slowly getting into my year and a day study around the every day bustle of modern life, but I'm loving every minute I spend. I have my days 1-30 shopping list of materials and will hopefully make some myself or find them around the house! Though I'm just starting my journey, I'm slowly starting to feel more at peace with my life and the life around me. In the future, I know my husband and I's plans will also reflect my draw to the Craft. I look forward to all the blessing bestowed upon us from the God and Goddess....

More to come soon!

Hi again, Mrs. W here!

I guess some would say that I'm semi-out of the 'broom closet' with this blog being online, but I don't necessarily feel that way. I'm still in the early stages of learning about the Craft and myself. I'm constantly looking for new reading material, anything I can get my hands on, to help sift through what I have connections with and what I can relate to the most. I think I want to start a year and day study for myself. I would definitely consider myself to be a solitary learner, though I have the support of my loving husband to explore whatever makes me happy. I also have a best friend who knows of my interests and she too has always felt a draw to this world. It's nice to have someone that I can visit with and talk with and won't feel judged or looked at like I'm crazy. Lots of things are starting to happen in my life and I know that this will help give me clarity and guidance in what I need to do next in my life to feel fulfilled :) Headed out right now to grab a new book! Can't wait to see where this journey takes me.

I'd also like to thank you, reader, for reading along if there is anyone out there. This is just a really great place for me to get away, and get down my thoughts and have it be available to others who might be interested in the same ideas. I love the idea of possibly having a young girl or adult who has always felt the draw of the Goddess but has never felt at peace to explore it. Even if this helps one person, it has served it's purpose.

Blessed Be! and enjoy this beautiful day the world has given us!

Quick update and the Witches Tea Party!

Hi again everyone!

It has been quite awhile since I last wrote, life has kept me busy. After the wedding and honeymoon, it took some time to get back into work and back to the usual day to day. I finally feel like I've caught up.

As this blog is new, I have spent a lot of time browsing some of the other blogs dedicated to people's paths of witchery and I must say it has been inspiring. It inspires me to continue to journal my trip as I continue to study and learn more about myself, the world, the Goddess and witchcraft.

Right now, witchcraft to me is a mix of many traditions and studies. I would consider myself interested in many, many, ways of the witch. Currently, I'm studying through various sources though books and websites, and following my intuition when it comes to which traditions to study further and gain a better insight of. Right now, my roots speak to the way of the Strega, or Italian witchcraft. More on this later, but I did want to share my journey so far, even if it is continued study until I can actually start a structured year and a day solitary study for myself.

Today is the 2nd Annual Practical Magic Blog Party by Frosted Petunias. I've followed the blogs throughout the night and had wanted to participate when I first found out about the blog party. Like I mentioned earlier, life got in the middle of things, and it was pushed to the back of my mind until recently. I still wanted to mention it, as Practical Magic is one of my all time favorite movies and is one that continually draws me closer to the magical properties of the Craft and the Goddess. Hopefully next year I'll be able to participate, but until then I think I'll participate in this year's Witches Tea Party Under a Halloween Moon! I hope many of you will be joining in this year :)

Better get to sleep, I have a long day ahead!
Blessed Be!
