The Scots Pine is a tree that we get great versatility from. It brings clarity, adaptability, and creativeness. But its main focus is to bring inspiration to follow our own path. The Pine brings forth saying “take responsibility for your actions” You are here to serve a higher purpose.
When the Pine is left our of our lives, we no longer can confront any issues in our life. So then what enters: confusion, fear, timid.
So, this card fits perfect for what is going on in this world. Remember, to be you and bring some Pine into your life. Go with what is inside you.
I am going to use this as the combined logo for WOTC, Coven Life, and Heart’s Spirit Coven as all threes logo as part of a letterhead, places that ask for our logo online, etc.
I picked the Tree of Life because to me not only does it represent As Above, So Below but also how 2 separate websites are coming together as one through the Heart’s Spirit Coven. All who read and/or follow Witches of The Craft and Coven Life whether you practice as a Solitary or in a face to face pagan group are a student with Coven Life, etc you are welcome to join me and the rest of Heart’s Spirit Coven for Open Chats, Esbat and Sabbat celebration gatherings. We do not follow a pure Wiccan path but a path of many different traditions so we are a eclectic coven of Solitary Witches and students who come together for gatherings and to chat.
As you can see WOTC is in yellow for Sun light, Coven Life is in blue for Life Giving water, both of which nourish learning and work together to form Heart’s Spirit Coven and Coven Life’s Witchcraft School. Please let me know over the next week whether or not you like this as a logo or not. If not, please give me you suggestions on what you think a good logo would look like combining the 2 websites and coven
Coven Life’s Coven also includes anyone from WOTC that would like to attend. So with that in mind we chose to rename the coven to Heart’s Spirit Coven. Blessed be sisters, brothers, and guest and if you want to join us to celebrate the last full Moon of 2019 please do.
The Esbat ritual this month was written by Adept Dawn of the Day and Novice Luna Llena. We welcome all witches and/or pagans from any tradition especially if you are a solitary practitioner and would like to meet some other brothers and sister of The Old Ways/The Craft.
Elder Moon (Full Moon) Esbat Gathering
Thursday December 12, 2019
Social Hour 6:00 to 6:59 PM CT
Circle Cast at 7:00 PM CT
Please do not enter the chat room after the circle has been cast. The reason being is we have students casting and leading the circle as part of their learning and this could break the circle causing it to have to be recast. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
Merry meet brothers and sisters. Since I no longer classify myself as pure Wiccan and as my pagan spiritual path encompasses other traditions as well, I feel it is time I step away from only posting things based upon Wiccan tradition. The reason for this is so I and my site can introduce other types of pagan spirituality both from modern and ancient times to those who take lessons from me will have a broader range of what pagans and witches can believe in. Also for anyone interested in learning more about different pagan spiritual paths.
A pagan spiritual path is also referred to as ‘ The Old Ways” The definition of Pagan is:
(no longer in technical use) one of a people or community observing a polytheistic religion, as the ancient Romans and Greeks.
a member of a religious, spiritual, or cultural community based on the worship of nature or the earth; a neopagan.
Disparaging and Offensive.
(in historical contexts) a person who is not a Christian, Jew, or Muslim; a heathen.
an irreligious or hedonistic person.
an uncivilized or unenlightened person.
of, relating to, or characteristic of pagans.
Disparaging and Offensive.
relating to the worship or worshipers of any religion that is neither Christian, Jewish, nor Muslim.
irreligious or hedonistic.
(of a person) uncivilized or unenlightened.
This came from http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pagan If you want to know the origins or other information on the word just click on the link. You may find other definitions for the word pagan in different dictionaries, but this is the definition that I have been taught.
If there is an area of interest that I don’t post on and you would like me to please let me know and I will see what I can do. I won’t be posting daily horoscopes, runes, tarot cards or the other types of daily posts as seen on Witches of The Craft as Lady of the Abyss and her staff do a fantastic job covering those areas.
