Wild Witch Crafting With Peony Flower Ants Part 2No peony plant is without its ants, I know this can be bothersome for some but for this Witch…. its gold!

Call to Adventure


The Call to Adventure is what every story, movie and myth is all about. Whether someone was taught this outline or they do it naturally, this is the formula for success in books and movies. This formula is all over the myths, yet we don’t give the ancients any credit. Just like everything else about the ancients, it was stolen to make money. Joseph Campbell brought this to light, but it was made out to be more of just a coincidence. A lot of the great stories in this world were taken out of the ancient myths and so was the template to write them. All the myths of the world are stories of you.

Gem Jewelry…

Good Witches Homestead

Gemstones are a great way to help me relax, gain focus, and ground myself. No better surprise than to find the gemstone you slipped into your pocket as a little good luck charm when your eyes were barely open at six AM, giving you that afternoon boost you need!

Gemstones are special because they each hold specific unique powers that can aid you with your own, likewise specific needs. Sometimes you might be drawn to the beauty of their color, or weight for no particular reason; that’s awesome too! The connection may come later as you spend time familiarizing yourself with your new gems!

When I wear gem jewelry I feel a sense of comfort and protection, a magnetic beauty and confidence. Most of all I love the feeling of first slipping my bracelets onto my wrists and letting the cool tranquility of their weight ground and calm me.

Moon Astrology

Elder Mountain Dreaming

Lunar Astrology by Phoenix – In the seasons of the Moon, our Moon sign separates and is also joined within our life, which the Greeks called the action of synafae and aporroicae. All the signs in which she enters or departs, she can depart from the many and is joined by the many aspect of life, becoming our mirror. Whatever star (sign) she is found, she bears towards that unity; like water… this is our moon sign.

Look to what degree the ruler aspects her or is in the same house with her. Having grasped the preceding astrological influences, you will be able to explain the whole fate of a human within her true nature. This is what the north and south nodes reference to within our moon sign, our karma, our destiny and our fate that is always moving like the moon each night and day.
