By the Light of the Moon

FullMoonWitch

Comfortable in the embrace of Mother Nature…

A witch will find solace in the electric energy of a storm,

Falling rain and the glow of the full moon evokes raw magick.

By the Light of the Moon

The moon is bright and full.

Her light washes over the earth in soft silvery shards.

We are recharged with positive energy.

Of renewal.

Of magick.

Everything her rays touch are alive with the knowing intuition of a trusted crone.

Like an old friend… the moon whispers the secrets of the night urging us to sit in silence and listen.

Be still and listen she says… and we do.

We are the children of the earth. The children of the moon. The children of Old Ways.

We are maidens and mothers and crones. We are youth and warriors and sages.

We may often be hidden, but are no longer hiding.

We dance barefoot in the dewy grass.

We speak our intent into the wind and make offerings of sage.

We sing and chant and drum.

We jump balefires and burn parchments of spells into fruition.

We bathe in herb scented water to cleanse and purify our bodies and prepare them to stand in the presence of the divine.

We are alive with the power of the moonlit skies.

We are witches and we are everywhere.

May this full moon find you feeling energized and full of the blessed light of Luna.

Pagan Insights Project

 

PIP BadgeIn an effort to liven things up and inspire my expression in more than one way, I’ve decided to give Pagan Insights Project some attention and try to post in ways that are appealing on more than just a standard blogging level. Hopefully working with different mediums will inspire me to write more now that I finally have some free time to do so.

This is something that I heard about from Rowan, but haven’t taken the opportunity to try yet. Since I generally function on a multimedia sort of way, this type of expression makes complete sense to me & really appeals to me. I’m not exactly sure how I’ll go about incorporating my Pagan Insights Project inspired posts into my blog, but I’ll try it a few different ways and see what I like best. I think when Rowan has used Pagan Insights Project to inspire her posts that she’s posts all 5 prompts in one blog post. She’s an ambitious one after all.

This is what Pagan Insights Project has to say about how to use their prompts:

“It’s a mixed media project – one that is designed to give a bit of insight into one’s own path, as well as general information on Paganism, and the Pagan “lifestyle” (whatever that means XD). There are 5 different prompts to work through, which include writing, images, music and more, and the really great thing about this project, is that you can work at your own pace.  You can do all 5 every week, every other week, once a month, or you can work at a more leisurely rate and simply choose one prompt each week so that you have always have something to post. Or you can go all out, and post them all in one blog post, as often as you like.  For some it can be a daily or weekly journal for keeping track of progress on one’s path, and for others it might simply be a touchstone to return to once every holiday, or every full moon to see where you are in that moment. Which ever you choose, how you use the Pagan Insights project is entirely up to you!”

Prompts

* In Your Own Words – your thoughts and feelings – maybe a full blog post on a topic of your choice related to your path (or Paganism in general) or just a few sentences on where you are right now. What are you studying? What are you thinking? Who are you, and where are you going on your Pagan path? What’s right and what’s wrong in Paganism at the moment?

Post A Pic – post an image related to your path, or one that invokes a feeling/emotion related to your spirituality (or craft… if one is a non-religious Witch), along with a sentence or two describing the image.

* Musical Musings – post a song, chant or poem related to your path, or one that invokes a feeling/emotion related to your spirituality (or craft). Can be in word form, but videos would definitely be awesome as well. On a spiritual level, what is your music of the moment? Is this a song stuck in your head, or one you played before your last ritual?

*Action, Action – post about a ritual, working or other experiential moment related to your path that has occurred recently, or that you are planning to do.

Eureka! – post about something new that you have learned, or discovered recently, that is related to your path or Paganism in general.

Stay tuned for some fun new blogging styles.
