Merry Ostara!!

Merry Meet All,

Tomorrow is Spring Equinox!! I hope you are all as excited as I am!! Dust off your cauldrons and broomsticks for a ride into the wild green wilderness with the Goddess and the Green Man. Bump into some hares and eggs on the way.

I am proud to announce that Eternal Haunted Summer has released their Spring issue on the website. My article, The Fires of Beltaine is published as well as fascinating contributions from other writers. Here is the link to Eternal Haunted Summer: Be sure to read this amazing issue. I took a peek and it looks great. I especially enjoyed the poem about the Goddess Morrigan and the interview with a successful Pagan author, Elissa Wilds.

I would love to hear how you plan to honour Spring Equinox! Please feel free to comment on my blog and share your altar photos. I am sure your altars are all already beautifully decorated. Do share.

For those of you who dwell in Haligonia, there is to be a ritual at the Universalist Unitarian Church on 5500 Inglis Street at 6:30 pm on March 29th. There will be a ritual followed by a feast and a gifting table. Feel free to join in the fun.

Merry Ostara to all of you pagans and witches!! The wind may be cold but the sun is on our backs. May March go in like a lion and out like a lamb.

Blessed Be,
Lady Spiderwitch )O(

Merry Meet All,

As I walk along my favorite nature trail everyday or nearly everyday, I hear the tree boughs creaking, leaves swish in the wind, and dry leaves skitter along the trail. Jays and crows greet each other. Dogs bark at passerby and squirrels chatter. It is an ideal trail for a city. I love walking the trail. I love the energy there.

The days are shorter and the wind grows colder. The trees are nearly bare. A few lingering leaves cling to the branches. The dark half of the year is upon us. It is the best time of year for writing. I am writing a ghost story, which I do, once I can tear myself from the lure of the internet. It is a good time to savor hot tea and curl up with a good book. I bought a book by a local author and friend today. It is called An Ogham Wood by Cliff Seruntine. I’ve begun reading it and am already fascinated by the awesome tale. I won a copy of the book by another local author and friend Steve Vernon-the Lunenburg Werewolf. I got that book signed by the author and bought his other book Maritime Monsters for my niece. My niece and sister love the books.

It is a good time to be reflecting on the past year. I am always eager for the new year but I can say that I have had some wonderful times this year. I have realized what wonderful friends I have- human and four-legged and furry, lol. I am realizing how fortunate I am. I hope it is or will be the same for you.
