Happy Yule and Merry Solstice to everyone on this beautiful sunny day! I think the Goddess went into labor early yesterday because it was so rainy and dark that I could barely see my hand in front of my face and now it so beautifully bright.

Great news is my fever broke and the rash is starting to go away and it’s not as itchy or painful as it was before. Even though I still feel a little yucky, I wanted to share pictures of my Yule altar with everyone. It’s not as big as I hoped to do it this year, but I’m still proud of it…

Yule 2012

I made the yellow sun out of air dry clay and painted it, then put a ribbon through it to hang it in my room. The images of the Holly King (left) and the Oak King (right) I printed them out on cardstock like my Saint Expedite photo. The goddess statue is actually an old lotion bottle I found at the thrift store for $2  and she had a sister that I gave to my mom.


I placed some stones in the shape of the pentacle to represent things that I hope for the year and for my family: Sunstones to call back the sun, rose quartz for love and Aphrodite my patron goddess, Adventurine to attract luck and prosperity, citrine for cleansing and bloodstone for protection.

I hope everyone has a great Yule and a great Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa and a happy holiday all around.

Blessed Be 🙂  )o(

I’m so sorry that this post isn’t what I planned on or promised you guys, but I sometimes think that I’m cursed.

Well, maybe not cursed but most definitely unlucky when it comes to the holidays. Every holiday, especially Christmas/Yule time, I come down with some ailment that inhibits me from enjoying my winter break. Here is a ‘short’ list of some of the more exotic ones:

-double ear infection (several times)

-ruptured ear drum (twice in both ears)

-gall bladder surgery recovery

-chicken pox

-bronchitis (twice)

-ruptured tonsil due to severe tonsillitis (it healed and is fine)

-internal hemorrhaging (scariest moment in my sixth grade life…)

Just when things were looking up and I though the curse was broken, Little Bro brought home a highly contagious bug that my body’s not handling well. It has all the bells and whistles of a great virus: fever, sore throat and not to mention a horrible rash on my hands and arms that is making typing very painful so I have to stop it here.

I hope to feel better in a few days and post the post I promised.

Sorry again everyone but I’ll see you soon!

Blessed Be )o(

The first thing I have to say is…thank you God, Goddess and every deity known to human kind and the few known to monkeys for helping me get through Exam Week. I know this will sound whiney, but I feel like I’ve been dropped kicked across Milwaukee, all the way to Madison and back. I kid you not, when I came home from my last exam of the semester, I went to my room and slept for three hours before my mom came home around six-ish.

Essays, essays and guess what…more essays! Luckily one was a take home, but doing that and trying to study for four other classes  is NOT an easy task.

I can’t believe I only have one more semester until I have my Bachelor’s…very scarey.

I’ll be posting a second part to my Saint Expedite spell post early this coming week, because I …sort of…forget to do it because of exams (thank you wonderful Emmelia for reminding me! 🙂 ). It’s just going to be a brief go through of what I did with the ritual ‘remains’ of the spell and maybe give you guys some ideas if you want to do this spell.

First…sleep. Blissful, wonderful, much needed sleep.

And caffeine detox…

Blessed Be everyone!  )o(
