Deity Identification Spread aka “Who are You?” Spread
Domain- This is what they typically have domain over. Usually, this is part of their title: “Goddess of Beauty,” “God of War.”
Lesser Domain- This is a lesser domain they control. It can play into their title, or it may just be a domain that is not part of their title.
Association/Symbols- These are what are typically considered associations or symbols of that deity. For example, Zues is typically associated with lightning.
Traits/Charactistics- This card is traits or characteristics the deity is typically thought of as having. For example, Hera is typically considered to be very jealous.
Lesser Traits- This card depicts a lesser trait the deity may have. This may be one that is not typically described in mythology or considered as common knowledge.
The Deity- This card represents the deity over all.
This spread can also be used to help identify spirits, however it would be harder, in my opinion, to confirm this. With well known deities, there are myths and storied that this spread could be compared against. This spread can also be used to help provide direction for which deity may be a good start for them.
This spread needs some testing so let me know if you do and how it works for you!
Please don’t forget to source!
This spread is for hellboundwitch's dailyspreads contest!

Log this for later when the parents are gone… I don’t know how I feel about this one though guys.

If you end up using it, let me know how it goes!

CALLING ALL WITCHES - Mass Blessing for Ferguson

parlourpixiekyle:

I’ve done some spirit work to aid Ferguson already, and I’ve been wanting to do some witchcraft as well, but always felt like something was missing in all my spell ideas. And tonight I finally figured it out. Teamwork.

Interested?

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

On Wednesday, October 8, the day…

I still get so stressed out when o think about how I’m going to look at religion when I raise my children. If I raise them wiccan then I don’t want them to be that without choice like me being raised Christian an changing my beliefs. But if I don’t raise them in my religion am I still raising them to be agnostic or atheist? I’m just so worried because I want them to have freedom of choice and I don’t want them to look back and be like “OH I was raised that way but I hated it”

my mother was pagan, my grandmother native american with a mix of indigenous & catholic beliefs, & my dad’s side of the family protestant. instead of raising us into any of it, my mother just made sure we had access to books about and holy texts from every religion she could get her hands on. now i’m a pagan, my middle sibling is a non-theistic buddhist, & my youngest brother mostly believes in ancient aliens (lol), but we can talk about those things without it being an issue or a fight because we understand & respect each other.  my mom is pretty cool for that.

Place gifts to please any fairy that looks your way, wear masks to seem fearsome, be mischievous to avoid their suspicion.

I’m so excited for Halloween

I’m sorry, is this not the right time of day to address an ongoing matter of gender and sexuality in a common religion? Because there are people on my dash right now, some spokenly half-asleep, having to argue about differentiating between a word for “witch” and a similar word for a religion of another language—which is a lot like clearing up the witchcraft/(Neo-)Wicca conflation that most everyone is avid about doing.

So, I’ll ask again: does anyone have any ideas on how to make (Neo-)Wicca more accepting of trans and nonbinary, and non-heterosexual and non-allosexual practitioners?

image

i think that depends on what you mean. if you mean making practitioners more accepting, well… cishets gonna cishet, if you know what i mean.  awareness can be raised, education given, especially if more LGBTQIA (the a is for asexual & not ally obviously) people start going to public events & talking openly about it.  but bigots exist in every community.

but if you mean theology, as in, the focus on duality, well, i dunno.  i know wiccans who definitely do NOT feel like their theology reinscribes the gender binary or heteronormativity who are LGBTQIA, because they see the God and Goddess as aspects of all people & stuff, & believe that the God and Goddess are way more complicated in terms of gender than people give them credit for.  but the reason i have made an active attempt to distinguish my practice from Wicca is because i can’t deal with the duality & the binarism that comes with it.

i mean, i’m family tradition style & do not worship or work with the Wiccan God and Goddess so i’m not a Wiccan anyway.  but being vocal about not being Wiccan when non-pagans (or even pagans) conflate shit is directly a response to my disagreements with the theology.  which is not to say it’s bad or wrong, just that it’s not MY theology.

anyway, i guess that’s a rambly way of saying that if you mean shaping the theology, i think it’s going to take a lot of practitioners & Wiccan clergy who are LGBTQIA to make it so.  if you mean making bigoted cishets less bigoted, well, i mean, call me if we get a solution to that one because it’d be handy in lots of other contexts, too.

Gentle reminder

How to draw a Cretan Labyrinth
The Labyrinth is a symbol used by both Christians and Pagans alike as a means to meditate. The unfortunate thing is that since the purpose of them is to literally get lost, that makes them hard to draw. (Even for someone who is artistically inclined like me.) So here’s a little tutorial on how to set up a grid and make a labyrinth, complete with crude drawings by yours truly!
1. Set up the grid. You can use graph paper if you’re so inclined. Make a + and then right angles inset into that cross and a dot marking the next part of the grid. 
2. Connect the topmost part of the inner + to the topmost part of the inset angle. 
3. Next, connect the top of the left angle to the rightmost dot.
4. And then the leftmost dot to the bottom end of the rightmost angle. 
5-8. Continue moving down the left side, connecting to the right side until you’ve reached the bottom. You want to keep your ‘hallways’ even in width, which is the tricky part and mostly that comes with practice. 
9. Make one final connection to the bottom of the angle and the bottom of the cross by going the looooong way around. This will leave an opening and you have a labyrinth!

Does anyone celebrate the Autumn Equinox simply as the coming of a new season and NOT as the Wiccan holiday Mabon? I simply cannot find anything!

yeah, i do.  i mean, i call it mabon in mixed company to facilitate understanding, but really i just celebrate the changing of the season, both literally & metaphorically.
