A practicing pagan...coming to a theater near you!

  Has anyone ever heard of the new book (series) called Wither? The author came to my school last month and I got an autographed copy. It's really great. The protagonist, the hero of the story, is a practicing Wiccan. Not like The Craft or anything, but Wendy, A college student, uses stones and herbs, is a solitary, opens circles, does healing magic, etc. She's fighting an ancient, evil spirit...I won't get into it. But this is going to be a movie within the next few years. I think it's a really good representation of the average pagan.

The only discrepancy I noticed was that they called her a "Wicca". Whazzat? Not a "Wiccan" but a "Wicca".
Does anyone else refer to themselves without the "n"?

X-posted like your mum.

  Hey all, hope everyone is doing well. My friend just made this pendulum, and it's sooo gorgeous that I actually put it for sale on ebay, and I just thought I'd show it off because it's really beautiful.

I've never had a dream like this before. Last night was the last night this month to do full moon magick (at least that's what I've been taught.)

So my siblings and I were in the family room Saturday night, and I noticed the moon outside. I live in the country, so I could see it through the dark tree limbs in my backyard. It was huge, round and sort of light orange-colored.

Then when I slept, I had a dream that I was looking out the very same window. There were some light orange clouds like at sunset, only they were in the eastern sky. And it was night. My sister pointed it out to me, and when I looked out the window, I saw that there was an eclipse. The moon was covering the sun.

What do eclipses mean in dreams? I've looked on www.dreamjournal.net for interpretation, but eclipse isn't on there. I'm guessing it might mean a change or a complete turnaround of something. Any suggestions?

  Hi, everyone. You might be wondering why diamond_life left the community. Well, she didn't, really. She has two journals. This is her private journal. =(

You see, there are some people online who can easily look at my Member Of list and note the sort of communities I belong to. These people are in my school, are blatantly Christians, and are terrible. gossipers. Therefore, unfortunately, I've had to "unjoin" from all of my Wiccan communities, including the one I made, to quell these rumours. It's like the hardest thing I ever have to do, but I have no choice. Will be posting as often as possible.

I'm kind of out of it today. Last night I got home at 12:30 because I performed my play (the Butleress, a comedy-horror) which was a HUGE success, and after that I went to the Americana with the cast and my teacher. So I'm taking it a bit easy today. *snoozes* My family's at church, again. They should really stop doing things that could be habit-forming.

But anyway, I was online looking for information about love oils, and I found this uber website. It's called www.askhagatha.com. Check it out! Loads of fun and highly useful information.

my...child!?!

  'Tis a dream post, everyone.
Ever since I started wearing my pentacle necklace to bed over my heart chakra, I've been having some very strange dreams: of people I've loved and people I've hated, but all I've known very well and are/were a part of my tumultuous past.

But last night...I think I might have had a dream about my child.

I had a miscarriage a time back, you see. That's why it disturbs me so much...and I'm not with the person anymore, so of course I've tried to escape from these memories. I had a very hard time of it, because I was too young to have a kid, and I never got help for all the trauma I went through. My own mother thought I lied about everything, and she took me to a therapist only once. Last night I found out that she had started seeing a therapist regularly and I thought, well, that's selfish of her.

And then I had the dream.

I was in a hospital waiting room, not really doing anything. And then I saw this child with this man, and my heart filled with emotion, as if this was something I've been searching for for a very long time. I remember thinking..."This might be my child...but how could it be?" Indeed, the child looked Asian, not anything like what mine would have looked like. I walked up to the man and asked, "Your son...is his mother alive or gone?" And he said, "Yes."

I got really excited then. But before I could ask him more, he turned away, not rudely, but just because he was preoccupied with someone else. He ws a bit shorter than me, I think 5'4" or 5'5", with brown hair. Not the father. I really can't explain why I was excited about the news of the mother...anyway, the rest of my dream was pretty much a blur, though I remember holding the baby at some point.

I guess that's it. Any explanation?

X-posted like wo.

As you can see, I'm attempting to change the background. I wanted to do a Yule scene, but couldn't find anything, really, so I'm trying to work with what I have.

Anyway, Friday was my birthday. Pretty irrelevant, except that I'm one step closer to living my life and practicing freely. How I would love to do rituals every week, start my own herb garden, and hang pictures of the moon and Isis on my wall! But alas, I'll just have to wait a little bit longer.

just look at those ladybugs...

mood: Merry Samhain!
I'm not really doing anything today...I decided to take advantage of the full moon instead and now that it's waning, it's wonderful to admire all the things in nature. It's a beautiful day in Jersey, about 60 degrees. I live in a dense tree area, so all around it's a myriad of scarlets and saffrons and sienna, lol.

No one's around in my neighborhood. I suspect all the neighbors have gone to church. My parents wanted me to go too, but I feigned sickness--"something I ate last night". It was a little white lie, but I don't feel guilty about it. To me, it would be a blasphemy to dress up in pastels and sit in a cloying church for hours while This wonderful act of nature is going on outside.

You see, every year, thousands of ladybugs convene at our house to mate. You can just look on the back, sides and front of the house and see their tiny red bodies all over, congregating and flying around. They always come in October, ever since I moved here several years ago. Well, I was just about to give up on their coming...every day this week seemed cold and cloudy, and their was no sign of them. And now today, what a blessing! It's beautiful and warm outside, and they're right on schedule for Samhain.

All Hallow's Eve is fantastic. As I say, it's a wonderful day to be a witch =). I wish there were some witches' balls I could go to, though. I have no plans for tonight, which is just as well, I suppose. Maybe next year.

Happy New Year everybody and Blessed Be to all! =P

  Hey everyone. I was contacted by a member from Witchvox the other day, and I've really gotten along with her. She's very open-minded and very knowledgable of most things craft-related. She's very easy to talk to and has been very encouraging to me, as I'm still starting out. Anyway, she is new to New Jersey (Point Pleasant) and is starting a study group, so I just thought I'd post the website here, in case anyone is interested. The Hallowed Harvest. I will definitely be joining this group, and it is my first step out into the 'public' world of paganism. I'm practically out of the broom closet =)

  Merry Meet, everyone. I live in Morris County, NJ and am so glad to be a member of this new community. I am fairly new to everything Craft related. I've been reading books on the subject for years, but only in the past couple of months have I really started getting into the practices. I don't know any Pagans out there in the real world, so it's been kind of hard to really get into something without the support of anybody around me. I took diamond_life's advice and registered for witchvox.com, and just yesterday I was contacted by another member who I really got along with, so it's been very exciting. It's great to have places like that and this community to know that there is always support from other people out there who share in your beliefs.
I look forward to getting to know you all =)

Anxious in the Broom Closet 
  diamond_life

mood: anxious
Merry Meet, garden_mooners. How was everyone’s weekend? Unfortunately mine didn’t go so well; I had an anxiety attack tied to Wicca.

Since Friday, I had had this awful pain in my side that refused to go away. It hurt especially whenever I laughed or breathed heavily. I have no history of asthma, nor do any of my family members.

I am a witch still in the broom closet, as they say, so none of my family knows…which is surprising, considering I live with six other people. My siblings are the most paranoid, especially my oldest brother, and one time he did find out, by looking at my e-mail. I denied it…but anyway, that experience made me a lot more careful. My books are always well hidden; as are my tools, and I never take any stupid risks like leave my stuff out…until yesterday.

Trying to get on the good side of my mother, I decided to clean my room. One of my spellbooks was lying under my bed, I remember. On Sunday, with no one home, I needed to take out this particular book—but I couldn’t find it. I looked under my bed. I fumbled through my closets and drawers. I began to panic. The pain in my side grew more intense. I struggled downstairs and tried to just breathe, breathe…

Yeah, well, cutting the dramatics, I was really worried. I was afraid my brother found it in my room and gave it to my mother, who locked her door before she left, so I’d have no way of getting it back. Besides the fact that I needed the book, it had guided me for more than three years in the Craft and I was fond of it. I had to find it, wherever it was.

Dizzily, I went to my brother’s room and looked there. I was really afraid that I WOULD find it, and that was already one person who knew. But I didn’t. To make a long story short, I didn’t find it anywhere but in my own room, under my bed right where I thought I thoroughly looked for it. After cursing myself out for five minutes, I realized that keeping such a big secret for so long is bad for my health. Before this, I’ve never had an anxiety attack that intense about anything. However, I don’t plan to tell anyone of my family members about my decision until I’m gone and out of their lives. Their accusatory, contemptuous faces leering down at me every time I see them would be, I imagine, more stress than I would ever need.

Just doing a quick update here...

Someone from Witchvox finally answered, and this person lives in New York. It's strange, but for me, pagan friends seem to come in waves. For a while we talk to each other, but after that we just sort of...stop.

I'm not trying to discriminate or put anyone down or anything, but Christians bother me. They really do think they know it all. Someone in my class is really very annoyingly bossy. *guilt*

Hopefully though, a little later than life I can be free to see who I want, when I want, where I want.

Things won't be so bad.

  My god for the past couple of hours I have been working on a numerological profile for myself with the assistance of "the Complete Book of Numerology" by Joyce Keller and Jack Keller. Im finding it really intersting, but I'm only half done. Too much math for my brain = a bad thing. This is what I have so far. Be warned its long and thats why I put it behind a cut.

  Merry Meet, all. I'm diamond_life, the creator of this website. Have you ever heard of Witchvox? It's a site where one looks for pagans in their area and age group. Well, I must've e-mailed every person in NJ on witchvox.com, and guess how many of them answered me? None, as yet, and that was a while ago. I've said every excuse to myself in the book--something's wrong with my e-mail addy, the people on Witchvox are just plain mean...but no. Perhaps it's the Lady's will that I have no Wiccan friends yet.

But being the only pagan for miles around gets lonely, and even more so when you're closeted and you have to get around the six other people living in your house. I need to talk to other pagans because it'd be like a breath of fresh air in this close-minded world. I'm sure that there are other pagans, hopefully in NJ, who feel the same way I do, and that's why I made this community: venting space for whomever needs it, a helping hand or advice, or simply to talk about the craft to someone who knows how you feel and what you mean.

I've seen communites before that people make just for themselves, and when they invite people in to talk about their problems, they go on and on about themselves. This isn't like that; I'm here to listen. =-)
