This is a chart of the Runes and their meanings. I keep a copy of this in my BOS for reference occasionally. Between knowing the Tarot, then the Runes, a witch's brain does tend to get overloaded and need a cheat sheet.

You will be engraving your candle during the ritual. Please see comment below for correct way to draw your rune.

During a circle when asked if you, “Come in perfect love and perfect trust” it is referring to you coming into the circle trusting and loving not only in your brothers and sisters in the circle but in the spiritual path you are following also.

I am Taking a Mental Health Day

Part of having fibromyalgia is called brain fog. I’m others words I cannot concentrate enough to get anything done  and/or really comprehend when reading lesson answers and/ or to get up a post that would make any sense. This is caused by fatigue from not sleeping well. I am not using this as an excuse not to fill fill my duties but as an explanation of why I do not feel comfortable trying to do so today. This usually clears up in about a day of I just rest my brain. I should be back to my normal tomorrow. I am sorry if this inconvenience upon in anyway.

Making Your Pentacle Your Own

Coven Life®

My pentacle that I wear daily is approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter. On the front of it is the Goddess with her arms raised. I apologize for the quality of the picture but I did not want to disturb Cleopatra or Starbabie, my two canine familiars, who are using me as their pillow. You can see part of Cleopatra’s head in the picture.

My pentacle is one thing that I wear close to my Heart Chakra on the cord is also a Unicorn pendant given to me about 15 years ago by my husband, a green Adventurine to help with my back problems, and a heart pendant the containg clear quartz made for me by my dearest sister (the one I went to Germany to visit in 2016).

The Winter Solstice – Yule Lore

Coven Life®

The date of this sabbat varies from December 20 to December 23 depending on the year in the Gregorian calendar.  The winter solstice is celebrated at this time in the northern hemisphere but it is now time to celebrate the summer solstice (Litha) in the southern hemisphere due to the seasonal differences.

Yule, (pronounced EWE-elle) is when the dark half of the year relinquishes to the light half. Starting the next morning at sunrise, the sun climbs just a little higher and stays a little longer in the sky each day.

On this night, our ancestors celebrated the rebirth of the Oak King, the Sun King, the Giver of Life that warmed the frozen Earth. From this day forward, the days would become longer.
