Public comments due July 12, 2017 by 4:30 pm PT on the BLM’s Preliminary Environmental Assessment (PEA) plans for the East Pershing Complex in Nevada.
 
Urge ALTERNATIVE C, the NO ACTION ALTERNATIVE in this plan.
Once again, the BLM doesn’t want to discuss reducing any livestock, but intends to sterilize, geld and remove wild horses from their federally protected areas forever.
The East Pershing complex consists of 3 Herd Management Areas – North Stillwater HMA, Tobin HMA and Augusta Mountain HMA.  It consists of 4 Herd Areas – Augusta Mountain HA, Humboldt HA, East Range HA and Sonoma Range HA.  Of course, the BLM doesn’t have Herd Area Maps on it’s NEW (with much less information to the public) website.   This complex consists of 2,191,650 acres in Nevada.

BLM plans to reduce herd sizes from what they…

Wild Witchcraft Plants – Part 2

FullSizeRender (2)

The Witch & Walnut

Summer is in full force and I am so grateful for it. I have been using some of my spare time to forage as much as I can to re-stock. Its important I go every week since something new is always blooming. And once its gone, its gone for a long time. Canadian summers are short, so I have to make sure I get everything I need to keep me going until next spring/summer.

Its a great way to get outside and be in nature. Enjoy the peace and quiet, its so soothing and cleansing for the soul.

FullSizeRender (2)I’ve collected here Yarrow, Queen Anne’s Lace, Bladder Campion & Sweet White Clover. These are just starting to bloom and I’m waiting for the hemlock to bloom and I’ve got my eye on some pretty amazing hogwart that has bloomed! Its quite poisonous so I have to be careful with that one!…

Invoking, And Banishing The Spiral

tumblr_ob1f5jmf121vrlgz6o1_500.png

Wolf Of Antimony Occultism

Invoking the spiral is a technique much like invoking the pentagram, except when you invoke the spiral you are invoking the energies of spirit. This technique is like opening a portal between worlds that spirits, and energies can travel through to help, or connect with us in our practice. This will fill you with vital energy, and will act as a connection between you, and spirit. This spiral is also known as the sign of Spirit descending into man. Banishing the spiral will put back energy in to its natural state, and will sort of just correct the area of energy into a more harmonious place of being. This technique is pretty basic, and simple, but is always a good thing to know.

To invoke the spiral you must draw a spiral in the air with your power hand, while envisioning white light forming the spiral as you do so…

Poison Ivy Remedy: Jewelweed Infused Witch Hazel

The Druid's Garden

Jewelweed and Poison Ivy Like Each Other A Lot Jewelweed and Poison Ivy Like Each Other A Lot

As I spend copious time in the outdoors, I often end up covered with poison ivy at least once or twice in the summer.I happen to like poison ivy as a plant a lot–she is beautiful, she is powerful, and she teaches us awareness (more on her soon).    But the contact dermatitis that I get from her on a regular basis kind of sucks.  Given that, I have a simple recipe that I make and keep on my shelf that seeks the healing power of two other plants: witch hazel and jewelweed.  This jewelweed infused witch hazel is a great remedy for poison ivy and clears it up very quickly.

If you can’t find jewelweed, I believe this recipe would be fairly effective with plantain or chickweed.  But Jewelweed is really the best.

Harvesting Jewelweed

Jewelweed (Impatiens capensis)…
