Some Witches utilize a personal Book of Shadows or magickal journal. Others simply use one single book that serves as both a personal journal and a mystical journal. In either case, this spell can help provide a boost during a time of need.Everyone goes through emotional cycles. Sometimes we need a boost of optimism and love. If you’re feeling particularly low on energy, whether now or at another point in time, you may consider writing in your journal. Write about the negative emotions you’re experiencing as well as something along the lines of this: “I ask my future self to send a boost of energy back through time, to me, NOW!” To make this type of magick successful, you must be willing not only to reread your journal over the years, but to focus a strong amount of healing energy to your “past self” whenever you read those words. In the present moment, if you’re feeling down and choose to write those words in your journal, you should feel an immediate boost of energy from yourself in the future. This post was written by Raven Digitalis on December 27, 2015 Old-Fashioned Horse(shoe) Sense Spell Date: Saturday, December 26, 2015 Use a bit of folklore to start the coming year with not only a bit of luck, but some home protection as well. You’ll need an iron horseshoe for this spell. Check out thrift and vintage shops to try to locate one. If all else fails, get a horseshoe made for use in the game. (It probably won’t have any of the holes used to hammer the shoe to the horse, so you may need to get creative when hanging it up.) Since it’s the holiday season, dress the shoe with either clove or peppermint oil, charging it with protective energies for your home. Finish with a bit of red ribbon as a bow, and hang somewhere appropriate—usually near the door. Remember to hang it ends-up so the luck doesn’t run out. This post was written by Laurel Reufner on December 26, 2015 Enough Is Plenty Spell Date: Friday, December 25, 2015 The full moon brings the peak of power and abundance. Christmas Day is likewise a time of giving and receiving. Let go of the idea that “more is better.” It’s unsustainable. Instead, embrace the principle that “enough is plenty.” Want what you have. Take time to appreciate the experience of sufficiency. Look at the pile of presents before they’re unwrapped, and admire the pretty paper and ribbons. Look again after everything has been opened, and enjoy the new clothes and games and other goodies. See how happy people are. Savor the Christmas feast spread over the table. Give thanks. Save a few tidbits—a piece of wrapping paper, some ribbon, maybe a bit of tinsel from the tree—and wrap your memories up in that, tying it off with the ribbon. Keep this as a reminder, when hard times come, that you know what it’s like to have enough. This post was written by Elizabeth Barrette on December 25, 2015 Celtic Tree Month of Birch and More Spell Date: Thursday, December 24, 2015 There are a number of events attributed to this day. Other than international Christmas Eve, it is Eggnog Day and National Chocolate Day. Tomorrow is the full moon, and today is the first day of the Celtic tree month of Birch. As befits this week before we celebrate secular New Year, the Birch Moon is considered a time of rebirth. The winter solstice has passed, and every day brings us just a little closer to the light of Imbolc. Over the next four weeks, any spells cast for creativity and new endeavors will have extra power. Should you be fortunate enough to have a birch tree in your yard, ward off any negative energy by tying red ribbons around the trunk or on branches. In numerology, 12/24/2015 totals down to 8—a number connected to the planet Mercury. Remain open for divine communication. A sideways eight is the symbol of infinity. Eggnog, chocolate, Christmas Eve, Birch Month, Mercury…today is brimming over with magical and mystical power. Cast accordingly. This post was written by Emyme on December 24, 2015 Sadie, the Bargain Shopping Goddess Spell Date: Wednesday, December 23, 2015 Do you have all your gifts ready for the holiday season? Did you already give away the best and now remember a special someone whom you really want to treat exceptionally well, and are running low on funds? Look for Sadie, the Bargain Shopping Goddess, at the stores. Many stores start to reduce pricing on gifts close to the end of the holiday shopping season, and she will lead you to the bins with the best buys. Who is Sadie? She is that silverhaired little old lady with a purple scarf and a gray wool coat, and she carries a big purse and lots of shopping bags. You will find her roaming the stores, running from bin to bin and shelf to shelf looking for that perfect gift. Watch where she stops and rummages about. That shelf has exactly what you are looking for at a price you can afford. This post was written by Boudica on December 23, 2015 Buche de Noel Spell Date: Tuesday, December 22, 2015 Today, bake a Yule log cake, or Buche de Noel, to warm hearts, sweeten moods, and honor the Yuletide spirit. (To go easy on the earth and your health, find a vegan recipe or substitute with vegan margarine, egg substitute, and soymilk. You can also use organic sugar instead of white.) Light a red candle as you prepare it to call bright positivity into the cake. Light red and green candles on the table as you serve with coffee or tea. Before serving, say: “Today, we honor the return of brightness and the rebirth of the sun. May our hearts burn bright and golden. May we share our love and light with each other and the world. May our happiness, joy, and compassion fill this home, our community, and our world. Thank you.” Instruct your guests to keep the conversation positive and to engage in hearty laughter whenever possible.

One of the most beautiful qualities of an intimate relationship is the give and take of energy that occurs between two people. In the best-case scenario, both people share the talking and listening, and the giving and receiving of support, equally. Occasionally, within any relationship, the balance shifts and one person needs to listen more, or give more. Generally, over a long period of time, even this exception will take on a balanced rhythm; we all go through times when we take more and times when we give more. However, there are also relationships in which the balance has always felt one-sided. You may have a friend whom you like, but you have begun to notice that the conversation is always about their life and their problems and never about yours. You may also have a friend who seems to require an inordinate amount of support from you but who is unable or unwilling to give much in return. Over time, these relationships can be draining and unsatisfying. One option is simply to end the relationship, or let it fade out naturally. Another option is to communicate to your friend that you would like to create a more equal balance in which your concerns also get some airtime. They may be taken aback at first, but if they are able to hear you, your friendship will become that much more sincere. They may even thank you for revealing a pattern that is probably sabotaging more than one relationship in their life. A third option is to simply accept the relationship as it is. There are many one-sided relationships that actually work. One example of this is a mentor relationship in which you are learning from someone. Another example is a relationship in which you are helping someone who is sick, disabled, or otherwise needy. In these instances, you can simply be grateful that you are able to help and be helped, trusting that the balance of give and take will even out in the big picture of your life. • • • • Week-End Witchin’s Ads!!!

The Goddess Way through the 12 Steps The Goddess Way through the 12 Steps: 12 Rituals of Light and Love by Amethyst Star (Author), Shahla Coyote (Contributor), Baba Mecka (Contributor) Some background: We began our rituals in January, 2012 for Step One. Each month we did a ritual for the corresponding step. The rituals were equally written by each of us. We created each ritual so it was an action of love coming from all of us. Here is a quick introduction for our book. Peace and harmony are the cornerstones of our 12-Step rituals. Amethyst Star and I (Shahla Coyote) have been friends for many years. They met Baba Mecka a few years ago. We each realized that something was missing, something that could make the steps more viable in our lives. We all follow the Goddess path and wanted to write rituals for each step. It has been a labor of love and has allowed us to get closer to the Spirit Goddess. The three of us came together to go through each of the steps to cement with action and ritual our growth in sobriety. Our higher power includes goddesses, so it seemed natural to use ritual and different goddesses to express creatively each step in recovery. We used the Open Steps and these rituals are not set in stone. If you feel that a different stone or god/goddess expresses more clearly your intention, by all means change the ritual to be a clear expression of yourself. Honor your sobriety by being true to what feels right to you. These rituals express an inward pull to grow in love and spirituality. We began brainstorming the possibility of creating rituals for each of the 12 Steps. Each one of these rituals has been a beautiful way to express our commitment to that step. They have healed us in ways we can’t even begin to describe in our journey in recovery. Making the Goddess path part of our recovery has been profound. This book has truly been a labor of light and love. We hope you enjoy it and the wonderful things that may materialize as a result of these rituals.

Wisewomen have existed for thousands of years and still exist throughout the world. They know Mother Earth as the ultimate healer, and have learned to utilize the gifts of of nature. Inside each woman is a being of wisdom, deeply connected to the phases of the moon and the tides of the sea. All we need to do is trust our innate wisdom. “Part of the ancient vision of the Goddess was as protector of cities and the sustaining fields around them. She was not, in this role, always a matronly and maternal goddess, but was frequently depicted as a lusty, loving, sensual woman. The power she wielded did not make her any less sexually vibrant. Indeed, her power was part of her erotic attraction.” “The queens and goddesses of myth and legend show us an image of both strength and sensuousness. While today we often equate women’s sexuality with weakness and passivity, our forebears saw such goddesses as Ishtar as especially passionate and sexual because of their power. Ishtar and her sister goddesses are potent images of feminine possibility – a possibility that remains despite the 2,500 years that have passed since she was last worshipped.” (“The Goddess Companion”, Patricia Monaghan) Shamanism refers to a range of traditional beliefs and practices concerned with communication with the spirit world. The feminine form of the word is not “shamaness” but “shamanka”, however, here we will use the word “Priestess”. Healing, gathering and growing herbs and food, keeping communities in balance, presiding over ceremonies and rites of passage, maintaining relations with the dead, teaching, ministering to those in need, communing with nature to learn her secrets ,preserving the wisdom traditions, divining the future, and drumming and dancing with Goddesses, these are feminine shamanic arts. This what you will learn or remember in our classes here! Sisters of The Burning Branch, is our part of the “shaman’s tree”, an image found in several cultures as a symbol for mediation. The tree is seen as a being whose roots belong to the world underneath; its trunk belongs to the middle, human-inhabited world; and its top is related to the upper world. The curriculum of Sisters of the Burning Branch, is eclectic, borrowed from the teachings of many paths, but rooted in Women’s Spirituality. Priestess Training takes a year and day to complete, plus 3 months to earn the High Priestess cord. (four levels). We do ask for your commitment when joining. Please do not sign up if you are not committed or able to follow through. There is nothing worse for your self esteem! We try to nurture here, this defeats that purpose. At GoddessSchool we use song and chants to raise power, using drums, tambourines or just humming along works too! We celebrate the Mother – the Full Moon – Mother Earth – Mother Nature – she is in us all – we are in her – we are one! We will learn some songs, beat the drums, howl at the Moon! We are ever changing as does the Moon – Feel the Moon – let her fill you up! Join us! The entire fee for each level is $120 (payment plan available), sixteen lessons in each level, except the last. Tuition covers lessons, assignments and instructor feedback.

Journal Magick Through Space and Time
Spell Date:  Sunday, December 27, 2015

It’s essential for magickal people to keep a journal of their practices, or otherwise keep a log of their spiritual activity and perceptions. Some Witches utilize a personal Book of Shadows or magickal journal. Others simply use one single book that serves as both a personal journal and a mystical journal. In either case, this spell can help provide a boost during a time of need.Everyone goes through emotional cycles. Sometimes we need a boost of optimism and love. If you’re feeling particularly low on energy, whether now or at another point in time, you may consider writing in your journal. Write about the negative emotions you’re experiencing as well as something along the lines of this:

“I ask my future self to send a boost of energy back through time, to me, NOW!”

To make this type of magick successful, you must be willing not only to reread your journal over the years, but to focus a strong amount of healing energy to your “past self” whenever you read those words. In the present moment, if you’re feeling down and choose to write those words in your journal, you should feel an immediate boost of energy from yourself in the future.

Old-Fashioned Horse(shoe) Sense
Spell Date:  Saturday, December 26, 2015

Use a bit of folklore to start the coming year with not only a bit of luck, but some home protection as well.

You’ll need an iron horseshoe for this spell. Check out thrift and vintage shops to try to locate one. If all else fails, get a horseshoe made for use in the game. (It probably won’t have any of the holes used to hammer the shoe to the horse, so you may need to get creative when hanging it up.)

Since it’s the holiday season, dress the shoe with either clove or peppermint oil, charging it with protective energies for your home. Finish with a bit of red ribbon as a bow, and hang somewhere appropriate—usually near the door. Remember to hang it ends-up so the luck doesn’t run out.

Enough Is Plenty
Spell Date:  Friday, December 25, 2015

The full moon brings the peak of power and abundance. Christmas Day is likewise a time of giving and receiving. Let go of the idea that “more is better.” It’s unsustainable. Instead, embrace the principle that “enough is plenty.” Want what you have.

Take time to appreciate the experience of sufficiency. Look at the pile of presents before they’re unwrapped, and admire the pretty paper and ribbons. Look again after everything has been opened, and enjoy the new clothes and games and other goodies. See how happy people are. Savor the Christmas feast spread over the table. Give thanks.

Save a few tidbits—a piece of wrapping paper, some ribbon, maybe a bit of tinsel from the tree—and wrap your memories up in that, tying it off with the ribbon. Keep this as a reminder, when hard times come, that you know what it’s like to have enough.

Celtic Tree Month of Birch and More
Spell Date:  Thursday, December 24, 2015

There are a number of events attributed to this day. Other than international Christmas Eve, it is Eggnog Day and National Chocolate Day. Tomorrow is the full moon, and today is the first day of the Celtic tree month of Birch. As befits this week before we celebrate secular New Year, the Birch Moon is considered a time of rebirth. The winter solstice has passed, and every day brings us just a little closer to the light of Imbolc. Over the next four weeks, any spells cast for creativity and new endeavors will have extra power. Should you be fortunate enough to have a birch tree in your yard, ward off any negative energy by tying red ribbons around the trunk or on branches.

In numerology, 12/24/2015 totals down to 8—a number connected to the planet Mercury. Remain open for divine communication. A sideways eight is the symbol of infinity.
Eggnog, chocolate, Christmas Eve, Birch Month, Mercury…today is brimming over with magical and mystical power. Cast accordingly.

Sadie, the Bargain Shopping Goddess
Spell Date:  Wednesday, December 23, 2015

Do you have all your gifts ready for the holiday season? Did you already give away the best and now remember a special someone whom you really want to treat exceptionally well, and are running low on funds?

Look for Sadie, the Bargain Shopping Goddess, at the stores. Many stores start to reduce pricing on gifts close to the end of the holiday shopping season, and she will lead you to the bins with the best buys.

Who is Sadie? She is that silverhaired little old lady with a purple scarf and a gray wool coat, and she carries a big purse and lots of shopping bags. You will find her roaming the stores, running from bin to bin and shelf to shelf looking for that perfect gift.

Watch where she stops and rummages about. That shelf has exactly what you are looking for at a price you can afford.

Buche de Noel
Spell Date:  Tuesday, December 22, 2015

Today, bake a Yule log cake, or Buche de Noel, to warm hearts, sweeten moods, and honor the Yuletide spirit. (To go easy on the earth and your health, find a vegan recipe or substitute with vegan margarine, egg substitute, and soymilk. You can also use organic sugar instead of white.) Light a red candle as you prepare it to call bright positivity into the cake. Light red and green candles on the table as you serve with coffee or tea. Before serving, say:

“Today, we honor the return of brightness and the rebirth of the sun. May our hearts burn bright and golden. May we share our love and light with each other and the world. May our happiness, joy, and compassion fill this home, our community, and our world. Thank you.”

Instruct your guests to keep the conversation positive and to engage in hearty laughter whenever possible.

One-Sided Relationships
A Question of Balance

by Madisyn Taylor

Relationships can become out of balance and one-sided if we don’t occasionally check in with each other.

One of the most beautiful qualities of an intimate relationship is the give and take of energy that occurs between two people. In the best-case scenario, both people share the talking and listening, and the giving and receiving of support, equally. Occasionally, within any relationship, the balance shifts and one person needs to listen more, or give more. Generally, over a long period of time, even this exception will take on a balanced rhythm; we all go through times when we take more and times when we give more.

However, there are also relationships in which the balance has always felt one-sided. You may have a friend whom you like, but you have begun to notice that the conversation is always about their life and their problems and never about yours. You may also have a friend who seems to require an inordinate amount of support from you but who is unable or unwilling to give much in return. Over time, these relationships can be draining and unsatisfying. One option is simply to end the relationship, or let it fade out naturally. Another option is to communicate to your friend that you would like to create a more equal balance in which your concerns also get some airtime. They may be taken aback at first, but if they are able to hear you, your friendship will become that much more sincere. They may even thank you for revealing a pattern that is probably sabotaging more than one relationship in their life.

A third option is to simply accept the relationship as it is. There are many one-sided relationships that actually work. One example of this is a mentor relationship in which you are learning from someone. Another example is a relationship in which you are helping someone who is sick, disabled, or otherwise needy. In these instances, you can simply be grateful that you are able to help and be helped, trusting that the balance of give and take will even out in the big picture of your life.

The Goddess Way through the 12 Steps

The Goddess Way through the 12 Steps: 12 Rituals of Light and Love
by Amethyst Star (Author), Shahla Coyote (Contributor), Baba Mecka (Contributor)

Some background:

We began our rituals in January, 2012 for Step One.  Each month we did a ritual for the corresponding step. The rituals were equally written by each of us.  We created each ritual so it was an action of love coming from all of us. Here is a quick introduction for our book.

Peace and harmony are the cornerstones of our 12-Step rituals. Amethyst Star and I (Shahla Coyote) have been friends for many years.  They met Baba Mecka a few years ago. We each realized that something was missing, something that could make the steps more viable in our lives. We all follow the Goddess path and wanted to write rituals for each step. It has been a labor of love and has allowed us to get closer to the Spirit Goddess.  The three of us came together to go through each of the steps to cement with action and ritual our growth in sobriety. Our higher power includes goddesses, so it seemed natural to use ritual and different goddesses to express creatively each step in recovery.

We used the Open Steps and these rituals are not set in stone.  If you feel that a different stone or god/goddess expresses more clearly your intention, by all means change the ritual to be a clear expression of yourself. Honor your sobriety by being true to what feels right to you.  These rituals express an inward pull to grow in love and spirituality.

We began brainstorming the possibility of creating rituals for each of the 12 Steps. Each one of these rituals has been a beautiful way to express our commitment to that step.  They have healed us in ways we can’t even begin to describe in our journey in recovery.  Making the Goddess path part of our recovery has been profound.  This book has truly been a labor of light and love. We hope you enjoy it and the wonderful things that may materialize as a result of these rituals.

November is going to be a fun month with two of my favorite local fairs, Oracles of Aquarius and KC MetaPhysical and ending with Customer Appreciation Day at Crescent Springs.

Prints are available for the mandalas in the Divine Solfeggio series that have been completed, 429Hz Change in Awareness is the most recent.  Frequency 429Hz is more than we’d probably like to admit so much of our day is spent in a state of self-delusion repeating an internal dialogue, of justifying our actions, both good and bad. The first step in the journey of self awareness is to realize, “You are perfect as you are”. You may wish to become more then you are at this moment, but you are in the perfect spot to make that change. There is always more of YOU to discover and become.

For the first time ever the originals of many of the Archangel drawings available for purchase, don’t miss this chance to connect with your favorite angels.

Angels = Color = Frequency = Geometry = Solfeggio = Language of Light

Discover the sophisticated patterns, balance and energy of the Universal Solfeggio Frequencies.

The Earthly, Angelic & now Universal Solfeggio Frequencies in combination with Mandala’s
are a unique and powerful tool to connect and transform your connection with your true self.

High Priestess Training and Community
Welcome to a journey of the shamanistic powers of the female, the Wisewomen. Wisewomen have existed for thousands of years and still exist throughout the world. They know Mother Earth as the ultimate healer, and have learned to utilize the gifts of of nature. Inside each woman is a being of wisdom, deeply connected to the phases of the moon and the tides of the sea. All we need to do is trust our innate wisdom.

“Part of the ancient vision of the Goddess was as protector of cities and the sustaining fields around them. She was not, in this role, always a matronly and maternal goddess, but was frequently depicted as a lusty, loving, sensual woman. The power she wielded did not make her any less sexually vibrant. Indeed, her power was part of her erotic attraction.”

“The queens and goddesses of myth and legend show us an image of both strength and sensuousness. While today we often equate women’s sexuality with weakness and passivity, our forebears saw such goddesses as Ishtar as especially passionate and sexual because of their power. Ishtar and her sister goddesses are potent images of feminine possibility – a possibility that remains despite the 2,500 years that have passed since she was last worshipped.” (“The Goddess Companion”, Patricia Monaghan)

Shamanism refers to a range of traditional beliefs and practices concerned with communication with the spirit world. The feminine form of the word is not “shamaness” but “shamanka”, however, here we will use the word “Priestess”.

Healing,  gathering and growing herbs and food, keeping communities in balance, presiding over ceremonies and rites of passage, maintaining relations with the dead, teaching, ministering to those in need, communing with nature to learn her secrets ,preserving the wisdom traditions, divining the future, and drumming and dancing with Goddesses, these are feminine shamanic arts.  This what you will learn or remember in our classes here!

Sisters of The Burning Branch, is our part of the “shaman’s tree”, an image found in several cultures as a symbol for mediation.  The tree is seen as a being whose roots belong to the world underneath; its trunk belongs to the middle, human-inhabited world; and its top is related to the upper world.

The curriculum of Sisters of the Burning Branch, is eclectic, borrowed from the teachings of many paths, but rooted in Women’s Spirituality.

Priestess Training takes a year and day to complete, plus 3 months to earn the High Priestess cord. (four levels). We do ask for your commitment when joining. Please do not sign up if you are not committed or able to follow through. There is nothing worse for your self esteem!  We try to nurture here, this defeats that purpose.

At GoddessSchool we use song and chants to raise power, using drums, tambourines or just humming along works too! We celebrate the Mother – the Full Moon – Mother Earth – Mother Nature – she is in us all – we are in her – we are one! We will learn some songs, beat the drums, howl at the Moon! We are ever changing as does the Moon – Feel the Moon – let her fill you up! Join us!

The entire fee for each level is $120 (payment plan available), sixteen lessons in each level, except the last. Tuition covers lessons,  assignments and instructor feedback. In addition, students may download guided meditation exercises and be eligible for face to face Sabbats, Esbats and retreats with the Sisterhood.

Journal Magick Through Space and Time
Spell Date:  Sunday, December 27, 2015

It’s essential for magickal people to keep a journal of their practices, or otherwise keep a log of their spiritual activity and perceptions. Some Witches utilize a personal Book of Shadows or magickal journal. Others simply use one single book that serves as both a personal journal and a mystical journal. In either case, this spell can help provide a boost during a time of need.Everyone goes through emotional cycles. Sometimes we need a boost of optimism and love. If you’re feeling particularly low on energy, whether now or at another point in time, you may consider writing in your journal. Write about the negative emotions you’re experiencing as well as something along the lines of this:

“I ask my future self to send a boost of energy back through time, to me, NOW!”

To make this type of magick successful, you must be willing not only to reread your journal over the years, but to focus a strong amount of healing energy to your “past self” whenever you read those words. In the present moment, if you’re feeling down and choose to write those words in your journal, you should feel an immediate boost of energy from yourself in the future.

Old-Fashioned Horse(shoe) Sense
Spell Date:  Saturday, December 26, 2015

Use a bit of folklore to start the coming year with not only a bit of luck, but some home protection as well.

You’ll need an iron horseshoe for this spell. Check out thrift and vintage shops to try to locate one. If all else fails, get a horseshoe made for use in the game. (It probably won’t have any of the holes used to hammer the shoe to the horse, so you may need to get creative when hanging it up.)

Since it’s the holiday season, dress the shoe with either clove or peppermint oil, charging it with protective energies for your home. Finish with a bit of red ribbon as a bow, and hang somewhere appropriate—usually near the door. Remember to hang it ends-up so the luck doesn’t run out.

Enough Is Plenty
Spell Date:  Friday, December 25, 2015

The full moon brings the peak of power and abundance. Christmas Day is likewise a time of giving and receiving. Let go of the idea that “more is better.” It’s unsustainable. Instead, embrace the principle that “enough is plenty.” Want what you have.

Take time to appreciate the experience of sufficiency. Look at the pile of presents before they’re unwrapped, and admire the pretty paper and ribbons. Look again after everything has been opened, and enjoy the new clothes and games and other goodies. See how happy people are. Savor the Christmas feast spread over the table. Give thanks.

Save a few tidbits—a piece of wrapping paper, some ribbon, maybe a bit of tinsel from the tree—and wrap your memories up in that, tying it off with the ribbon. Keep this as a reminder, when hard times come, that you know what it’s like to have enough.

Celtic Tree Month of Birch and More
Spell Date:  Thursday, December 24, 2015

There are a number of events attributed to this day. Other than international Christmas Eve, it is Eggnog Day and National Chocolate Day. Tomorrow is the full moon, and today is the first day of the Celtic tree month of Birch. As befits this week before we celebrate secular New Year, the Birch Moon is considered a time of rebirth. The winter solstice has passed, and every day brings us just a little closer to the light of Imbolc. Over the next four weeks, any spells cast for creativity and new endeavors will have extra power. Should you be fortunate enough to have a birch tree in your yard, ward off any negative energy by tying red ribbons around the trunk or on branches.

In numerology, 12/24/2015 totals down to 8—a number connected to the planet Mercury. Remain open for divine communication. A sideways eight is the symbol of infinity.
Eggnog, chocolate, Christmas Eve, Birch Month, Mercury…today is brimming over with magical and mystical power. Cast accordingly.

Sadie, the Bargain Shopping Goddess
Spell Date:  Wednesday, December 23, 2015

Do you have all your gifts ready for the holiday season? Did you already give away the best and now remember a special someone whom you really want to treat exceptionally well, and are running low on funds?

Look for Sadie, the Bargain Shopping Goddess, at the stores. Many stores start to reduce pricing on gifts close to the end of the holiday shopping season, and she will lead you to the bins with the best buys.

Who is Sadie? She is that silverhaired little old lady with a purple scarf and a gray wool coat, and she carries a big purse and lots of shopping bags. You will find her roaming the stores, running from bin to bin and shelf to shelf looking for that perfect gift.

Watch where she stops and rummages about. That shelf has exactly what you are looking for at a price you can afford.

Buche de Noel
Spell Date:  Tuesday, December 22, 2015

Today, bake a Yule log cake, or Buche de Noel, to warm hearts, sweeten moods, and honor the Yuletide spirit. (To go easy on the earth and your health, find a vegan recipe or substitute with vegan margarine, egg substitute, and soymilk. You can also use organic sugar instead of white.) Light a red candle as you prepare it to call bright positivity into the cake. Light red and green candles on the table as you serve with coffee or tea. Before serving, say:

“Today, we honor the return of brightness and the rebirth of the sun. May our hearts burn bright and golden. May we share our love and light with each other and the world. May our happiness, joy, and compassion fill this home, our community, and our world. Thank you.”

Instruct your guests to keep the conversation positive and to engage in hearty laughter whenever possible.

One-Sided Relationships
A Question of Balance

by Madisyn Taylor

Relationships can become out of balance and one-sided if we don’t occasionally check in with each other.

One of the most beautiful qualities of an intimate relationship is the give and take of energy that occurs between two people. In the best-case scenario, both people share the talking and listening, and the giving and receiving of support, equally. Occasionally, within any relationship, the balance shifts and one person needs to listen more, or give more. Generally, over a long period of time, even this exception will take on a balanced rhythm; we all go through times when we take more and times when we give more.

However, there are also relationships in which the balance has always felt one-sided. You may have a friend whom you like, but you have begun to notice that the conversation is always about their life and their problems and never about yours. You may also have a friend who seems to require an inordinate amount of support from you but who is unable or unwilling to give much in return. Over time, these relationships can be draining and unsatisfying. One option is simply to end the relationship, or let it fade out naturally. Another option is to communicate to your friend that you would like to create a more equal balance in which your concerns also get some airtime. They may be taken aback at first, but if they are able to hear you, your friendship will become that much more sincere. They may even thank you for revealing a pattern that is probably sabotaging more than one relationship in their life.

A third option is to simply accept the relationship as it is. There are many one-sided relationships that actually work. One example of this is a mentor relationship in which you are learning from someone. Another example is a relationship in which you are helping someone who is sick, disabled, or otherwise needy. In these instances, you can simply be grateful that you are able to help and be helped, trusting that the balance of give and take will even out in the big picture of your life.

The Goddess Way through the 12 Steps

The Goddess Way through the 12 Steps: 12 Rituals of Light and Love
by Amethyst Star (Author), Shahla Coyote (Contributor), Baba Mecka (Contributor)

Some background:

We began our rituals in January, 2012 for Step One.  Each month we did a ritual for the corresponding step. The rituals were equally written by each of us.  We created each ritual so it was an action of love coming from all of us. Here is a quick introduction for our book.

Peace and harmony are the cornerstones of our 12-Step rituals. Amethyst Star and I (Shahla Coyote) have been friends for many years.  They met Baba Mecka a few years ago. We each realized that something was missing, something that could make the steps more viable in our lives. We all follow the Goddess path and wanted to write rituals for each step. It has been a labor of love and has allowed us to get closer to the Spirit Goddess.  The three of us came together to go through each of the steps to cement with action and ritual our growth in sobriety. Our higher power includes goddesses, so it seemed natural to use ritual and different goddesses to express creatively each step in recovery.

We used the Open Steps and these rituals are not set in stone.  If you feel that a different stone or god/goddess expresses more clearly your intention, by all means change the ritual to be a clear expression of yourself. Honor your sobriety by being true to what feels right to you.  These rituals express an inward pull to grow in love and spirituality.

We began brainstorming the possibility of creating rituals for each of the 12 Steps. Each one of these rituals has been a beautiful way to express our commitment to that step.  They have healed us in ways we can’t even begin to describe in our journey in recovery.  Making the Goddess path part of our recovery has been profound.  This book has truly been a labor of light and love. We hope you enjoy it and the wonderful things that may materialize as a result of these rituals.

November is going to be a fun month with two of my favorite local fairs, Oracles of Aquarius and KC MetaPhysical and ending with Customer Appreciation Day at Crescent Springs.

Prints are available for the mandalas in the Divine Solfeggio series that have been completed, 429Hz Change in Awareness is the most recent.  Frequency 429Hz is more than we’d probably like to admit so much of our day is spent in a state of self-delusion repeating an internal dialogue, of justifying our actions, both good and bad. The first step in the journey of self awareness is to realize, “You are perfect as you are”. You may wish to become more then you are at this moment, but you are in the perfect spot to make that change. There is always more of YOU to discover and become.

For the first time ever the originals of many of the Archangel drawings available for purchase, don’t miss this chance to connect with your favorite angels.

Angels = Color = Frequency = Geometry = Solfeggio = Language of Light

Discover the sophisticated patterns, balance and energy of the Universal Solfeggio Frequencies.

The Earthly, Angelic & now Universal Solfeggio Frequencies in combination with Mandala’s
are a unique and powerful tool to connect and transform your connection with your true self.

High Priestess Training and Community
Welcome to a journey of the shamanistic powers of the female, the Wisewomen. Wisewomen have existed for thousands of years and still exist throughout the world. They know Mother Earth as the ultimate healer, and have learned to utilize the gifts of of nature. Inside each woman is a being of wisdom, deeply connected to the phases of the moon and the tides of the sea. All we need to do is trust our innate wisdom.

“Part of the ancient vision of the Goddess was as protector of cities and the sustaining fields around them. She was not, in this role, always a matronly and maternal goddess, but was frequently depicted as a lusty, loving, sensual woman. The power she wielded did not make her any less sexually vibrant. Indeed, her power was part of her erotic attraction.”

“The queens and goddesses of myth and legend show us an image of both strength and sensuousness. While today we often equate women’s sexuality with weakness and passivity, our forebears saw such goddesses as Ishtar as especially passionate and sexual because of their power. Ishtar and her sister goddesses are potent images of feminine possibility – a possibility that remains despite the 2,500 years that have passed since she was last worshipped.” (“The Goddess Companion”, Patricia Monaghan)

Shamanism refers to a range of traditional beliefs and practices concerned with communication with the spirit world. The feminine form of the word is not “shamaness” but “shamanka”, however, here we will use the word “Priestess”.

Healing,  gathering and growing herbs and food, keeping communities in balance, presiding over ceremonies and rites of passage, maintaining relations with the dead, teaching, ministering to those in need, communing with nature to learn her secrets ,preserving the wisdom traditions, divining the future, and drumming and dancing with Goddesses, these are feminine shamanic arts.  This what you will learn or remember in our classes here!

Sisters of The Burning Branch, is our part of the “shaman’s tree”, an image found in several cultures as a symbol for mediation.  The tree is seen as a being whose roots belong to the world underneath; its trunk belongs to the middle, human-inhabited world; and its top is related to the upper world.

The curriculum of Sisters of the Burning Branch, is eclectic, borrowed from the teachings of many paths, but rooted in Women’s Spirituality.

Priestess Training takes a year and day to complete, plus 3 months to earn the High Priestess cord. (four levels). We do ask for your commitment when joining. Please do not sign up if you are not committed or able to follow through. There is nothing worse for your self esteem!  We try to nurture here, this defeats that purpose.

At GoddessSchool we use song and chants to raise power, using drums, tambourines or just humming along works too! We celebrate the Mother – the Full Moon – Mother Earth – Mother Nature – she is in us all – we are in her – we are one! We will learn some songs, beat the drums, howl at the Moon! We are ever changing as does the Moon – Feel the Moon – let her fill you up! Join us!

The entire fee for each level is $120 (payment plan available), sixteen lessons in each level, except the last. Tuition covers lessons,  assignments and instructor feedback. In addition, students may download guided meditation exercises and be eligible for face to face Sabbats, Esbats and retreats with the Sisterhood.
