I Am Triangle Obsessed!!!!

I mean, seriously, I am! I am finding them everywhere, including on my own body. Last night while helping me put on new heart monitor pads, my daughter starts pointing out that a lot of my moles/freckles are in the shapes of triangles; I told her I knew a few of them did.

Her are two of them I photoshoped them to add the outline.

This got me thinking though, why am I triangle obsessed and what do triangles mean to/for me? I have done research on this, and I know a few things:

They can represent the elements.
They can represent the triple Goddess.
Triangles represent gateways.

I am still trying to figure this out. I've been trying to figure out my past lives, so maybe they have something to do with that, or maybe something to do with my path. If any of you have any ideas I am open to any help.

Thanks & Blessings

The Need For Nature

After the events of the past few weeks(with my health), I have had an overwhelming need to be in nature. I have a very special place where I like to go when I need to think or be one with nature; it's a place down on the bay where my daddy used to take me fishing as a child.

Unfortunately I can't always make it out there, so I have to come up with other ways to be in nature; my favorite way of doing this is putting my bare feet in the grass, dirt, or mud. So that is what I will be doing tomorrow rain or shine my toes will be in the dirt, soaking in all the healing energies the earth/nature has to offer me. 

Nature is a part of all of us, the air we breath, the water we drink, the foods we get eat, and the sun that shines down on us. It's up to us to bring these aspects of nature into our lives, we can do this in many ways like...

Taking care of a house plant.
Walking barefoot in the yard.
Take a walk in the woods.
Go to the beach and watch the waves roll in.

What do you do to make and keep nature in of your life?

A New Look

This is just a quick update to explain the new look, I just got the itch to change it up a bit and to change the colors to more calming tones. I really like the way it turned out, I hope you guys like it to.

Many Blessings

Full Moon Blessing and A Hiccup

First let me start with wishing all of you a wonderfully blessed full moon!!! Hopefully your view of her is better than mine is tonight, thanks to storm clouds I don't have one.


Even though I can't see the goddess tonight, I know she's there and blessing all of us. Tonight is the last Super Moon of 2013 so enjoy it while you can.

The Hiccup

OK so it's not really a hiccup it's a health issue, namely my heart has decided to run a little erratic. So for the next month I get to wear a shiny new piece of jewelry, ok so it's not jewelry it's a heart monitor and it's a pain in the backside.


I will still be blogging and doing my normal stuff, but if I miss a day here of there I wanted you to know why.


Many Full Moon Blessings

Dancing Under The Moon - Clothing Optional

Yesterday my friend Kammie posted the following on FB and it got me thinking about the subject of clothing and Pagan's/Witches.


Here in the Pagan community, we like to encourage women to free their bodies from the confines of clothing and to veil for the sake of spiritual protection. But Gods forbid a woman chooses to veil or dress conservatively simply to be modest. She's obviously oppressed by the Patriarchy *rolls eyes* and needs to re-program her mind to let it all hang out. It's not like she has the right to choose who gets to see her body and who doesn't. 
So many times I have heard/read that witches like to dance skyclad/naked under the full moon, I myself have danced under the full moon but never naked; it's just not my thing. I know that some Pagans/Witches think that if you go skyclad during rituals, etc to be closer to nature etc, but it is it necessary.

I personally think how we dress in or out of ritual is up to the individual, just like with anything else that come with the craft. I also don't think anyone should be judged on how they walk their path, because it's just that "theirs".

What is your opinion on this subject, should we "Dance Naked Under The Moon"?
