Rocketing Out of Mercury Retrograde

Witches In the News

This past Mercury Retrograde certainly kept me busy! From working on my genealogy files, to updating my Twitter account, organizing my small office space, and much more. Although the weather was less than delightful here, I was able to finish several open projects and prepare for great new ones!

My new WordPress Blog is the first project launch after the retrograde cycle. My website has been completely rebuilt and we are only waiting for appropriate paperwork to come through to finish the launch. I’ve attached my Twitter to my FaceBook; this way I can update both at the same time. When the new website opens you’ll find that it, too, will be connected to both Twitter and FaceBook.

I also spent a lot of time these past few weeks reconnecting with old friends and continuing to work with new ones! From the Amani Festival to several meetings at my house, we’ve been cooking up tons of magick. I also wrote the basic format for the Pow-Wow healing circle that we do, and will be sharing the chants and charms with you through this blog. That way, you can use the same material when you work along with us every other Thursday Night.

I’ve had several folks ask me about Pow-Wow training. I’m continuing to work on the lessons, have started a few students (although they have had to patiently wait) and I will get back to those of you who have shown a genuine interest. The name of the organization is The Divine Order of the Black Star — Braucherei and PowWow, and will consist of those already skilled or wishing to learn the art and science of the Pow-Wow system.

The artwork in this post also represents some of my projects over the retrograde period. I visited graveyards, took in my first flea market of the season, created a To Do Project Journal, and worked magick with a lot of old skeleton keys to open the way for future endeavors. When I found the old photo at the flea market I just had to have it. It would be nice to live in a world where Witches were congratulated for the work that they do — from healing, to charity, to investigations — without the stigma of being strange. I wanted to show, in art form, that we are more commonplace than the general public believes.

I hope that you enjoy the new blog format, and keep coming back to visit!

  1. I have had a lot of negative energy in my life lately that is hard to deal with. We lost our house and i had to live with myvsister and my husband with my brother. My brother. got in trouble, my husband was seeing someone behind my back. It was three months of hell. We arr back to working on our relationship. I could only find. 2 part time jobs, one seasonal. My husband hss a part time ine as well so we can’t afford a place of our own. And the vans engine is shot. What can i do to turn this around. I can’t take this anymore. So tired and ready to break. Sincerly, Bobbie Burns.

    1. I am not a counselor; I can, however, tell you what I did and perhaps that may help. Work on yourself, your perception of life, your beliefs and your attitude. As you change from within and make, sound, positive choices — the field around you changes, bringing toward you what you want and need and pushing away that which will not serve you. I took one step, a day at a time. The toughest part, I think, was figuring out how to start.
