Twas the Week Before Mabon (Dorian)

Man this year is going by fast, is it not? September is half over. It's been a game changer though....but we're going to talk about happy stuff today. There's enough terrifying stuff going on that we need to focus on putting as much light as we possibly can back into the world.

One week ago, Sis and I had the pleasure of finally meeting Dorothy Morrison in person! If you ever have the chance to take one of her classes, you absolutely should. I was able to pick up a few more of her amazing coffin boxes not yet available for sale online. The Grave Matters and the Bless My Soul, which include amazing new oils and lots of goodies tucked in with them. You should grab some as soon as they're available! We will be sharing the links for both her page and for international shipping, our sponsor, The Angry Cauldron can help you.

If you are in the NC area, Sis and I will be at the Piedmont Pagan Pride Day where Wendy Rule will be the guest. Come join us!

So, how did you all fare through the Eclipse yesterday? I personally feel like something has lifted a smidge, but not to the extent I was hoping. Maybe it's a slowly peeling change. I rearranged one of my altars to encourage the changes I would like to see come my way and that I would like to make in the coming months. I would also like to thank, again, the new clients for taking advantage of my buy one get one readings at Cobaltraven's Magickal Notions. I look forward to helping you again in the future!

Just a heads up, I may be re-configuring the lay out and look of this blog. I am realizing it doesn't translate well to mobile.

Bright Blessings! Have a great rest of the weekend.

Justice (Dorian Wallace)

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!

I hope everyone is holding up during Mercury Retrograde. There seems to be a mixed bag of ascribers and detractors of the phenomenon.....so I will say, I hope you are having a wonderful Holiday weekend. It has been a busy one in my household, thus the delay in the Sunday post.

First, I would like to say thank you to everyone who has taken advantage of my September sale so far. A portion of the proceeds go to help our show.

Second, I am really enjoying Devin Hunter's book, The Witches Book of Power. If you feel like you've been stuck, I highly recommend adding this to your library.

Third, I am SO excited to be meeting Dorothy Morrison on Saturday! I feel very blessed that my sister and I have her as a frequent guest, but I am thrilled to be able see her in the flesh. If you are in the Asheville area, you can catch her at Asheville Raven & Crone this upcoming weekend.

Lastly, I would like to address something serious going on right now that the media is pretty much ignoring. Our Native Brothers and Sisters are fighting for their land once again, this time from corporations. They had dogs sicced on them and were bitten and pepper sprayed after fighting back illegal bulldozers. They have had their water cut off, they are under attack. We may not be able to go and physically stand with them, but I am calling on the Pagan community to help in any way we can. You can start by signing the Pagan Solidarity with Standing Rock petition. Cast for justice, cast for peace, cast for them and for us.....they are trying to prevent these people from poisoning Mother Earth and every living thing just because someone wants a bigger bank account. It's beyond time to fight back! We declare war on those who are trying to kill us, we stand in solidarity!

Pumpkin Spice Everything! (Dorian Wallace)

If you are familiar with me at all, you know I LIVE for Autumn. It borders on unnatural, but I've realized, I'm definitely not alone in my love of all things Fall. I love the cool weather, the golden light, the amazing palate of nature, football, the rainy days, the smell of bonfires....Summer cookouts have their own magickal smell, but don't compare to a fire pit.

But, can we talk about the pumpkin spice thing for a moment? The over saturation has kind of killed my love for the stuff. Seriously, that shit is on and in EVERYTHING now! Pumpkin Spice lattes, Pumkin Spice Cheerios, Pumpkin Spice M&M's....candles, air fresheners, Oreo's, (well, they've kind of gotten ridiculous with their flavors lately), it's everywhere. But that's what happens right? Marketers figure out that we like something and they go overboard and take the novelty out of it. Look at what they're doing to Sriracha. And, can you find anything that's NOT Gluten free now? These money grubbers take something special and ruin it....maybe not the gluten thing, I don't know enough about that to bitch. But seriously, I kinda have a love/hate relationship with Pumpkin Spice now.

I obviously love Autumn with a passion and am excited to see the leaves are already starting to get that end of Summer hue of light green and dull yellow. The air is cooling a bit as well, but I am in North Carolina, so the humidity has yet to piss off. My youngest son starts school tomorrow, so I think I will take some time and curl up with a good book....or actually get some work done.

What are your thoughts on Pumpkin Spice and what are you excited about this Season?
