What is the Shadow?

secretsoftheserpent

What is the shadow of a person?  Every person on earth has one.  I’m not talking about the dark figure you see on the ground when you walk into the sunlight.  I’m talking about our shadow selves.  The self we have hidden from everyone including ourself.  Remember as kid how you would try to out run your shadow on the ground.  Well as adults we are trying to out run our shadow selves.  As a kid we could never do it and as an adult it’s just as useless.

Going into the Age of Aquarius

secretsoftheserpent

There is always a time when the old becomes outdated or just doesn’t work anymore.  That which was either forced upon people or propagated on the people is being outgrown.  A new horizon opens up.  Most people will be fearful of the changes coming.  They will fight to keep the old.  They don’t want to let it go.  I’m not talking about something like styles that change over time or political changes.   I’m talking about a true awakening change that will change the world forever.  The magnitude so strong that it will change the very core of the human race.  This change began within the last century and is getting stronger every passing day.  Whether a ruler, political figure or anyone else does not agree, they can not stop it.  It is written in the stars.  Literally.

Things Witches and Wizards Don’t Do

secretsoftheserpent

I have written a few post of what Witches and Wizards do, but I have not written a post on what they don’t do.  There are certain things Witches and Wizards won’t do simply because it does not benefit them to do it.  Not doing something can more powerful than actually doing something.  Just like silence can be more powerful than speaking in certain situations.  Here are a few things Witches and Wizards don’t do.  If you can think of anymore leave them in the comments below.  I would love to hear them.

Mary Magdalene

secretsoftheserpent

Mary Magdalene is one of the most demonized women in the history of the world.  Why?  Even woman of the world call her a prostitute and hoar without even asking why.  The church has many things to hide with her and that is the first clue as to why she was demonized.  If the truth got out about her, the fairy tale version of Christianity would crumble.  The truth about her is slowly coming out.  Hopefully I can speed things up a bit.

Aphrodite, Venus, Ishtar, Inanna and Astarte birthed the original Wicked Step-Mother, Evil Mother and Dark Grandmother

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming – I am a goddess lover, honoring the goddesses for as long as I can remember. Doing ceremony, prayer and facilitating goddess circles since the early 90s. As I get older, having had a debt to Venus (conjunct my Chiron), it was important to pay homage and respect to the goddess this lifetime. I completed that forty year journey and still honor Venus to this day.

Aphrodite is an ancient Greek goddess of: Love, Beauty, Youth, Pleasure, and Procreation. She is identified with the planet Venus (signs Taurus and Libra), which is named after the Roman goddess Venus, with whom Aphrodite was extensively syncretized. Aphrodite’s major symbols include Myrtles, Roses, Doves, Sparrows, and Swans.

The cult of Aphrodite was large, and derived from that of the Phoenician Goddess Astarte, a cognate of the Eastern Semitic goddess Ishtar, whose cult was based on the Sumerian…

What is your default mode?

The Plant Spirit Oracle Project

The Druid's Garden

Spirit of the Oak! Spirit of the Oak from the Plant Spirit oracle!

As we’ve been exploring over the last few weeks, plant spirit communication can take many forms.  The rustle of leaves outside of your window, the inner knowing, or the song a plant sings to you as you honor it for the harvest. These simple messages weave a complex landscape beyond what we can sense with our fives senses, and invite us deeper into the mysteries of the earth and all living beings. And as we’ve explored, the voices of the plants, the spirits of the plants, take a number of forms and can appear to each of us uniquely. What is clear is that the more that we open ourselves up to understanding them, honoring them, and working with them, the more connection we have with the living earth in her many forms.

Part of the reason I’ve been sharing so…

Religion

secretsoftheserpent

Lets take a look at the definition of Religion: a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny, the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a god or gods, a pursuit of a belief or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance. I just summarize it by saying it is anything outside of you that you let control your mind.  Those of you who know me know I am not against being spiritual.  Spirituality is figuring out the truth of reality and trying to grasp it.  Trying to find the truth of the universe, nature and ourselves and bringing it all together.

Say NO to Witch School

There were many times in my youth I thought about ‘witch school’ with people who were supposedly reputable, but something always stopped me. Sometime later it would come out that they weren’t so reputable after all. Maferefun to my ancestors for their protection.

The Witch & Walnut

say no! to witch schoolI hope you all have had a wonderful long weekend Holiday.

I recently received an email from someone asking if they should attend Witch classes. I do hope you see this post, I attempted to email you a response but continued to get a failure message regarding the email address.

So here I am answering your question as it is a rather common question. My standard response to this is No.

I urge you to ask yourself a few questions before depositing your money and time into a Witch class.

  1. Why do you want to take the class/program/course/whatever?
  2. Do you think it will make you a Witch?
  3. What can they teach you, that you cannot learn for yourself?
  4. What are your expectations of this course?
  5. What do you want to achieve from this course?
  6. What qualifies this person/people to teach this course?

There is sooooo much information out there and…
