post #21 of 65

Slacker paganism - I love it! It is that sort of mindfulness and acceptance that has allowed me to make small progress in the other parts of my life - the clutter, eating better, taking better care of myself.  It is funny that I haven't thought to let that kind of acceptance into my spiritual practice.  Thanks for the poke in the right direction! It is greatly appreciated!

Seconding Slacker Paganism. I don't agree with Star Foster on a whole lot of things, but I loved that article. I'm a pretty big flylady devotee, and it's like flylady meets paganism.

 

amlikam, I'd love to hear more about what kind of things you will bring into your temple for your birth

 

crazyms - why do you feel guilt over the procedure?

 

Speaking of pregnancy... Last night, I had a dream that I took a pregnancy test and got a "Maybe" as the result on the screen and I was trying to follow these complex instructions about retesting. I had a really funky cycle this month and not sure if or when I ovulated. My cycle started on the new moon, so normally my cycle would end around the new moon, but who knows? I try not to obsess and keep my attention on gardening and chicken plans for this spring. I am so freaking excited to have the space to keep a large garden, and definitely have plans to keep a moon garden and also an herbal garden (both magickal and medicinal). I just placed my seed orders this weekend. Now I just have to figure out where I want to order chicks. Vy, you're a big gardener, right? I'd love to hear how your garden dreams are starting to shape.

 

My eldest went back to school today. I dropped her off at the bus not an hour ago and I already miss her. I still feel unsure whether school is the best place for her, but we've decided to stay at least until spring break.

She's never included with his boy-things and now that he's older, he doesn't want people to know she's his best friend eyesroll.gif They have had a love-hate relationship forever, but they've been best buds since they were 4.

I'm kind of glad he doesn't want a big to-do-- my house is way too small to handle more than one boy over, now that they're so big. I actually have the money this year to rent a place (gym, pizza parlor, Chuck E. Cheese) but he doesn't want to. OK by me! Though, I have to say, I am worried about his lack of friends, which is what I think is fueling this.

Hmm... are his teachers concerned by it?  I just wonder because I have no idea about social development expectations at 12.  I love pizza parties!  YUM!!  yummy.gif  We just picked up our new stove and made a homemade pizza in it last night to "christen" it.  Although, we're Pagans so would we use a different term? ha.

Aren't those moments of realizations the best?!  haha.  It seems like whenever that happens DH and I will look at eachother like don't move, don't even think about the fact that she's still asleep just enjoy!  love.gif the little things!!

I would think that beneath it all, everyone has an unusual belief system, kwim?  We just attempt to put ourselves in defined little boxes and that is limiting, especially in spirituality.  It's a journey, we are continually changing and our world is and so how can we stand rigid?  I'm also a Pagan-Buddhist so I'm all about unattachment and continual change.  lol.gif

 

 

Slacker Paganism: LOVED this article!  Thanks, mamas!!  I am going to bookmark it and really take her advice.  I, too, would like to get in to a routine with my practice but never have been able to.

I wonder if the dream means anything about letting go of the results?  Or perhaps that even if you get a positive that you just have to let it be?  You know?  I am not great at dream interpretation so, there's that!  

 

How is your eldest feeling about school??

 

Yeah, mama!  I am TOTALLY dreaming of my garden!!!  biggrinbounce.gif  We've already decided to expand it ANOTHER 5 feet or so.  Carrots, they are my big experiment for this year and more flowers from seed.  I'm not a big flower person in general for growing but last year I grew the most GORGEOUS marigolds and think this year I will try my hand at some daisies (my favorite of all time).  What is a moon garden?  What herbs will you grow?  Last year I just did basil and cilantro (my first year of attempting herbs).  They grew beautifully but then I had no idea how to put them up at the time and garden time gets so busy most of it just went back to the Earth.  That's totally okay with me but I need to learn how to dry herbs and/or put them up better this year.  I also need a great and easy recipe for pesto... anybody??  

 

We are feeling better here - Z has a little bit of a cough/congestion but we're workign through it.  I guess that's just what winter brings.  

post #24 of 65

All this talk of pizza!!! eat.gif  WOW and I don't really even like pizza all that much (must be the hormones.) Going to try not to fixate on pizza all day now! and instead enjoy my PB&J for lunch with cucumber- hey don't knock it until you've tried it!!!- ok that might be the hormones!

 

Glad to hear people are starting to feel better though some cough and such is lingering. I have been lucky (knock on wood) to be avoiding most illnesses/plagues around me thankfully!!!

 

M glad to here of the updates! And you know sometimes "loners" maybe need support and permission to do the thing they enjoy in order to thrive (from my own recovering loner self.)

 

GARDENS!!! AHHHHH I am due right in early June and I am wondering if it will even be worth it as I don't know if I can manage being a new mama, my 5yr old and a garden! I work full time out of the house so often I feel like a part time mom, so this being thrusted into fulltime momma of 2 for a few months, kind of scares the heck out of me! I had a dream last night that I got one more baby as a surprise and had to figure it all out. I know there is only one in there, but my hubby is an identical twin and fraternal twins run in both our families so I woke up kind of freaking out!!

 

Anyhow, I am considering a small garden for my 4yr old (who will be 5 this summer) as she enjoyed having plants she could nibble on in the yard. Maybe beans, peas, and tomatos. She also likes stevia (which she calls candy plant). A moon garden sounds lovely (my understanding of it is you plant a lot of white flowers which will glow at night.)  At one point I wanted to put a labyrinth in my yard but I think I might paint one on outdoor canvas to lay out on the grass when in use and fold up when not (bc a real labyrinth can be sooooo time consuming to maintain!!!)

 

Tomorrow night I am doing a ritual in my home to heal some mother wounds. I've been busy creating a temple space as I mentioned before, and will be mostly finished with it tonight!!! YAY!!! I have deemed it the Temple of the Divine Mother since my hubby got me another Kwan Yin statue for the room, and I already have a Kwan Yin statue and blessed Mary Tapestry. It is similar to a red tent, though I need more red fabric for it (most of the fabric has a pink feel.) Anyhow, I am excited as this project has been years in the making!!!

Slacker paganism sounds great lol. I need to do this just let go, make baby steps and remember that a baby step is still a step.

My word for the year... after some thought i was focusing on patience but i finally came to it. I think aspire is my word. I need to focus this year on setting and achieving baby steps to my goals.

DoK - glad y'all are feeling better. We are slowly recovering. And realizing the kid slept in is nice. I realized the other day all three of mine were napping on their own ahhh

Revolting- the guilt i had over the vasc was j just from feeling i shouldn't have messed with our fertility. I know we don't need more and don't really want more but the thought of never being able to again is sad.
I hope your little one is okay at school just remember it can always be changed when the need arises. My dd has been in public and hs depending on our situation.

I'm working on our garden plans as well. Since we aren't on the property yet it'll be small until we get there but maybe more later this year. I want to start something in pots now though. Chickens are great! I'm getting some in a few weeks too. Check for a local co-op that may sell them. Ours gets them around Feb. If not I've used welp hatchery or mcmurray are both good. What kind(s) are you looking to get?
post #26 of 65

Still sick... blah...

 

 

My word of the year: UP

 

 

Garden... with all the snow we have, it's hard to think about anything else... Though I want to start my seeds inside this year so I better start planning soon!  I saw a cute tiny inside garden... might try to do one on Imbolc... 

 

 

More shoveling is waiting for me... have to go.

Pesto is pretty easy, from what I understand. We just don't use enough of it to make any. I don't eat pasta. It's really good on salmon, though!

 

I don't know, vydalea. DS has been like this for years, and he has no friends to speak of except those two. I have asked the teachers in past years if they seem concerned and none have seemed to notice it or be worried by it. But I am.

 

"Christen"-- yeah. I use the word, too, but it's so ingrained in our culture that I think "Wiccan it" sounds ridiculous.

 

DS wants "real" (as in from Pizza Hut or somewhere) pizza for his birthday, and a (BLECH) store-bought cake. With all the yucky coloring.

Not knocking it-- my man eats BLTs with <barf> peanut butter. And swears by it.

 

Loners? I don't feel like scrolling back-- but are you referring to me? Or my son or my guy or something? I missed it redface.gif

 

Your ritual sounds beautiful!

 

Valerie and DOK-- feel better, mamas! And yay for kids sleeping in! Though...mine has taken to sleeping WAY past 9 on weekends if I let him. Which I don't. I don't want him GOING to sleep late because he slept in. Messes up the routine!

How big was your previous garden? How do you have your garden structured? Marigolds are supposed to help repel pests...so we will try growing them, too, though most of the flowers will be for the moon garden. Our moon garden is mostly white flowers, flowers with strong scents in the evenings, or flowers that open in the evening at night, with moonflowers growing up bamboo poles to make a little tent for the kids. Herbs? For herbs, we are growing oregano, basil, rosemary, catnip, dill, lavender, lemon balm, parsley, peppermint, sage, lamb's ears, and cilantro. In the past, I've container gardened and just brought the herbs inside (other than the basil, which does not like to be indoors), so it will be a learning process for me, too. But pesto? I love pesto. And you can freeze pesto as long as you add the cheese after you've defrosted it. I also make pesto with kale, but we're not growing kale again this year... last time I grew it, it got tons of caterpillars. I couldn't get them all off! I know I'm living somewhere completely different and there are things you can do to keep those down, but it was so gross I need a little time to recover!

What a lot of ambition! I didn't even try having a garden when my second was a baby and I had him in February. I knew there'd be no way I'd keep up with it, but I thought the transition from one to two was rough.

 

I totes didn't know you were a WOHM. What do you do?

post #29 of 65
How's everyone doing? We are almost completely healed here so I'm excited about that. I'm behind on gardening here so really need to get started since i should have transplants starting and i don't even have seed yet. I don't have space to start seed indoors so i guess I'll just be late this year. Dd is wanting to grow things also so I'll let her do the flower garden. I'm not much for growing flowers but she'll enjoy it.

I need to get the chicken coop ready also since chicks will be out in a few weeks. It'll be later this year before we can do anything else but I'd like to at least get a few plants and the chicks, maybe rabbits again.

Cool idea about a canvas labyrinth!  That is one of the reasons I have never considered making one.  Having our veggie garden is enough to maintain...how would I keep a labyrinth looking like a labyrinth!  gah!  I cannot speak to 2 children but hey what's the worst that can happen, you let it go to heck and just harvest whatever veggies you get?!   The year I had Z (May baby) we did just that.  Again, only 1 though.  smile.gif

nice word, crazyms!  It's so funny sometimes to remember that you southern folk can start your plants so early!  I have to wait until at LEAST april to get the majority of my babies going!  Although you know as soon as that ground is thawed enough to break I get my peas in!! looovveeee peas!!

OOh, I like that word, too!  So simple but so many ways to interpret!  I also love the idea of a tiny inside garden for Imbolc.  I might try to grow some grass inside with Z this year.  Just for fun.  Just to see grass early!! By the time Imbolc comes around I am DYING for the feel of grass on my toes!!

Hmm...that is really interesting about your DS and the teachers not noticing... is it his social skills you are worried about or how he might feel about it?  Just curious.

 

ha! "Wiccan it" lol.gif  I think I might just use that it sounds so weird.  haha.

 

Your son and my grandma would be two peas in a pod.  For her birthday all she ever requests is Hawaiian pizza from Pizza Hut and a chocolate Store-bought cake!  headscratch.gif

.  

I think our garden was previously 15'x30'.  I kind of split it up the middle and do squash/ other vine veggies that spread on one side and trellised vines and non-spreading (totally a technical term! haha) on the other.  I have a big fence on the backside that I had the sunflowers leaning against last year.  I dig the moon garden idea.  I put marigolds in our garden last year right infront of the broccoli and didn't have any caterpillars on them like I usually do each year.  I might line the garden with them this year.  Maybe

 


So, I feel like the Universe has given me some pretty amazing gifts lately.  I want to do something to show my appreciation.  Do any of you do anything like this or have any ideas??  

post #31 of 65

Oy. I've been gone awhile. I didn't mean to, I promise! I completely disappeared in December because of finals and this horrid, horrid plague that hit all of us. Then I spent my 'vacation' in California out in the middle of nowhere. I managed to do a lovely solstice ritual by myself around an outdoor fire and rededicated myself to the coming year and the goddesses I commonly invoke. The new semester just started again, so I hope that I'll be light on stress for a little while.

 

I looked up the number site and I'm a 2. It makes sense. :) I'm working on relationships--both releasing one and trying to strengthen the one with DH. And gradual progress and patience area always good things for me to remember. I seem to be just a bit too much of a Sagittarius sometimes. 

 

Amlikam: I'm SO interested in the ritual for your mother wounds. Would you be willing to elaborate a little on that? Or PM me or something? I've been trying to put together a ritual just to find myself as a mother, and I can't seem to finish it. And I would dearly love a temple space. I have a corner in the living room in our small apartment for my workspace and it has some candles and things, but there's no sacred space feel to it. 

 

vydalea: When it comes to appreciation for gifts, the first thing I normally think of is to pay it forward. Maybe meditate on where your grateful energy could be best used? 

 

Tarot! I pulled a random card on New Year's and got the Knight of Swords. Interesting... and a little strange, to be honest. If anyone has insight on what that could mean for me, I'd love to hear your thoughts. One of my goals this year is to get good enough at tarot to do live readings. Right now I'm willing to do them long distance and send write-ups to people, but I don't know the cards well enough to do it in real time. Part of it is also not enough confidence in my intuition. So any advice on that is also appreciated. :)

 

gardening: I am thisclose to paying $700 for a desert permaculture course. Do I have $700? Not really. It would have to come out of student loans... Can't decide if it's a worthy investment. Since I kill everything I grow (bad witch), it would be very helpful I think. But can I transform it into something marketable enough to get my investment back financially? Anyone have any advice? I live in an apartment right now but we're searching for a small house to rent for the next couple years that will hopefully have a space for a garden. 

 

I vote we do a big long distance group healing ritual. Banish all the germs! Let's see... we'll need some garlic, a wine goblet of ACV...

oops. double post.

post #33 of 65

greenwitchymam, I agree, reading Tarot for others really is a matter of confidence, I find.  For me it developed over a long time.   One of the things that helped me was working with Mary Greer's Tarot for Yourself.  I found that if I had a good foundation in reading for myself, it helped me gain confidence to work for others.  The more I work with the cards on a personal level, the better I know them and the more I develop my own personal Tarot "vocabulary" and symbology.  I also took an online class with James Wells http://jameswells.wordpress.com/ on Tarot Counseling, which was great.  Tarot Counseling is less a predictive style of reading and more an uncovering of info. from the querent's unconsciousness, which resonated with how I wanted to read for people.  For me, the more I encourage the querent to keep their questions open-ended (IE: what do I most need to know about being in a relationship with John Smith vs. Is John Smith the lover for me) instead of yes/no questions, the richer the session will be, and will often lead to asking questions that unearth what will most benefit them.  I also like to use a dialogue style of reading, where sometimes I ask them what they see, as opposed to just talking at them the whole time. Then go from there with my insights.

Knight of Swords for a year card to me would be all about gaining clear insight on issues in your life, and also letting those insights develop into goals and intentions that are allowed to manifest by your taking direct action to help them do so.  The negative aspect of this card can be a rather harsh, cold and analytical viewpoint, but I prefer to look at it as letting your actions open up new viewpoints for you that are less hindered by emotional response, so therefore you can easily allow them to help you make decisions and move you along the path of your life's journey ; seeing things as you may not have in the past and then having the motivation to make changes based on that new information. There is a real energy here, and a feeling of progress and thought manifested into action.

Theresa Reed has a lot of info. on her site about developing one's own Tarot business. I haven't really explored her offerings yet, but I plan to.

http://www.thetarotlady.com/

I also try to keep up with what's going on with other readers and learning from their insights.  I follow James' blog, Theresa's and also Beth Owlsdaughter and Joanna Powell Colbert. They are all great mentors, if even from afar :-)

sorry, I had a double post, too. Something funky going on with the posting function, I guess.

We're moving NEXT WEEK! Moving to Klamath Falls, OR to visit DH's Grandma for the rest of January, if DH still doesn't have a job come February (Imbolc!), we'll rent a house month to month in Klamath. Rent is super cheap there and they acutally have month to month rentals available vs. San Diego or Seattle. Hurry up Universe and give us a job! 

 

I'm following along and reading usually on my Kindle, just hard to type on there. 

 

Witchy news - I found this handmade old fashion broom made of twigs(?) that smells like apples at the grocery store for only $2! I'm going to sweep out all the negative energy. I got a Earth Magic Tarot card set that's gorgeous! I've been playing with it every now and then but baby has apparently changed her bedtime from 8pm to 11pm :/ so not much down time. She's literally up party rocking till 11pm. She feel asleep twice lying on DH's chest while he rubbed her back, so sweet!

post #36 of 65
I am on an iPod right now and it is hard to type all I want to. I would love to share about my mother ritual but will have to do that a bit later when I can really type. Ask again if I forget with my prego brain.
I am inclined to agree with that reading of the king of swords. Swords are clarity and often te king shows up as a masculine energy with clear communication.
That style of reading "tarot counseling" is how I have intuitively read for the last 20 yrs. I got my primary deck as a child and just taught myself (a little more to the story but going. To run and get a snack then maybe sleep more.)

She's literally up party rocking till 11pm. She feel asleep twice lying on DH's chest while he rubbed her back, so sweet!

 

Wow, that is a quick move. Isn't that where spirulina comes from?

 

Nice score on the broom!

That style of reading "tarot counseling" is how I have intuitively read for the last 20 yrs. I got my primary deck as a child and just taught myself (a little more to the story but going. To run and get a snack then maybe sleep more.)

 

My Year Card was the Five of Cups. I don't read tarot, but I liked what it had to say in the little book about it smile.gif

 

M has been out of the hospital since the 3rd, I think. He has a visiting nurse now that comes to make sure his meds are correct and that he's taking them correctly thumb.gif

Green witch y mama: glad you've recovered. We are better except dh and i both have pressure in our ears ugh. That sounds like a lot for a class. Does the local coop extension offer anything maybe?

Kaydove: good luck on the move and getting a job. sounds exciting

Maia: I'm glad to hear M is doing better. Have you figured out anything else on your house or on finding/ keeping M in somewhere housing wise?

Not much going on here. I've been reworking our budget and menu and just trying to get a handle on what we're doing. Ready to get some plants going and debating animals to get.

Thanks, crazyms, no, we haven't figured out anything yet. M's landlord took him to see some rooming houses, but he already lives in just a 12x10 (or so) room, and he'd have to downsize! And, no overnight guests, so, no. He'll have to figure out some way to stay where he is.
He's supposed to call disability lawyers today.

And figure out how to maybe take in computers for fixing, on the side.

 

DS is off to school and I have most of a whole day to myself, woohoo! I am such a solitary person. DS is so wild. I love quiet, peaceful mornings and evenings. He is wildest and loudest in the mornings and evenings. What a combination eyesroll.gif

 

I think I am still going to be dieting on Imbolc, so I am probably going to have eggs and chives for one meal, and chicken with cabbage for the other. Maybe dandelion greens, if there are any out yet.
