c4c74fbf-ddc6-4803-96b8-86c69dc5a230

A Super Moon is what happens when the moon is closer to the earth than normal making her appear larger in the sky. This event can intensify our emotions, enhance our intuition, and can even bring about unexpected news or events.

This Supermoon is also a Lunar Eclipse! This will intensify our emotions even more while bringing us new revelations and insight. Lunar Eclipses also have the ability to bring us life altering news, so expect the unexpected with this one!

A Lunar Eclipse is when the Sun is opposite the Moon, this lets us take a look into our emotions and close relationships in a different way, with fresh eyes and new perspective. You might feel overly aware of the imbalances in your life on top of your enhanced sensitivity.The Moon is also square Uranus, which can cause moodiness, impatience and impulsive reactions.

Allow the Lunar Eclipse to help you stay objective so you can keep your mind set towards growth and progress.

Imbolc Lavender & Rosemary Seed Cake — Gather Victoria

There is nothing like cake to celebrate a special occasion and Imbolc (on February 2nd) is no exception. And I think this “naked” sponge cake would be a wonderful addition to any Imbolc Feast! It’s kept gorgeously moist with brushings of lavender and rosemary syrup (between cake layers) but the slight tang of the Mascarpone…

WHAT ARE HERBAL TINCTURES?

Good Witches Homestead

January is here with its fresh start, and we are enjoying our snowy Utah landscape, cozy fires and turning inward. This time of year is about resetting, refreshing, finding balance and focusing on self-care and the care of loved ones. This is a wonderful time to start new healthy habits that can stay with you all year long. It’s also a great opportunity to share the beauty and accessibility of herbal tinctures with friends and family, resolving to build good health within your community!

When we think about using herbs in our everyday life, there are a few ways that come to mind; fresh harvest from the garden, herbal infusions (tea) and herbal tinctures. While many of you know what a tincture is and use them often, many folks don’t, and our goal is to get more people comfortable using plant medicines and to be inclusive in our information; we…

Thinking About Planting a Dye Garden?

Good Witches Homestead

Traditional dye plants offer intriguing materials for the gardener who is also a spinner or weaver, or who just wants to experiment with the vast usefulness of the natural world. Nature has its own subtle palette of colors and this little garden represents a few of the dozens of plant dye possibilities, which even include some nuts, fruits, vegetables, and other common foods.

And even if you’re more inclined to pick up some easy powdered dye at the corner store than to make a dye bath from the plants in your garden, you still might appreciate this connection to history and tradition. All of these plants are desirable garden plants.

About Dye Plants

A separate garden isn’t necessary to grow dye plants, as you can incorporate them into an existing flower border or bed (and you might unknowingly be growing dye plants already), but this small corner bed can give…

Atlantis

secretsoftheserpent

Atlantis is a myth that most know about.  When people find out that I am an ancient historian one of the first questions they ask me is, “Do you know anything about Atlantis?”  It does not matter of the race, culture or background of that person, they want to know about Atlantis.  What is it about Atlantis that is imbedded in our memory?  I have to be careful about what I tell people because, just like religion, most of what they know is complete wrong.  When one is not ready to hear the truth, they lash out at the messenger.

How To Celebrate Winter For More Personal Empowerment

Good Witches Homestead

 As the sun reminds us, it is time to begin considering the year behind and the new one ahead. This year you might consider how winter can aid you in finding more personal empowerment.

Standing in our own personal empowerment allows us to no longer feel like the victim and begin to take full accountability for our own feelings, emotions, situations, and relationships. When we feel victimized by others actions or reactions we are actually giving our personal power away to that situation. No one gives us our emotions, instead, they come from within us based on our core beliefs, our experiences, and our expectations.

When we begin to take full responsibility for our own emotional state we have stepped into our empowerment. Personal empowerment is often associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra. This winter we hope you will take the time to take a personal inventory of your emotional…

A Passion For Herbs

Good Witches Homestead

Herbs are a fascinating group of plants with a history of cultivation stretching back to the dawn of civilization. Once the herb garden was a practical project, necessary for supplying flavorings for the kitchen and medicines for the family. Today, gardeners are growing herbs for medicinal purposes and for their attractive looks, pleasing fragrances, and tasty flavors. Whether your interest is kindled by taste, aroma, beauty, or history, you’ll find herbs a satisfying addition to your garden.

What is a Herb?

Traditionally, herbs have been defined as plants that are useful to people. The oregano and thyme on your pizza are herbs just as the ornamental foxglove, from which we once extracted the medicine digitalis, is a herb. The insecticide pyrethrin is derived from the painted daisy, making it a herb as well. The list goes on and on; we use herbs and herb products every day.
