When I was very young, I was introduced to modern pagan witchcraft. While I don’t practice the Wiccan-influenced parts anymore, I do adhere to some kind of feminist thought.
About my practice
For 15 years I’ve practiced some sort of pagan-y spirituality where I have a belief system that centers on the universe in its entirety. I don’t invoke or evoke any one type of deity. I just ask the universe to come to me in whatever shape or form that fits me best at the time. I have a loose practice where I use Tarot or Goddess cards to “speak” to me or tell me what I need to know. I write my spells in a journal and pretty much do the spell then and there. If I want to do a ritual, they’re short and to the point.
I do have an altar, but I try not to have a “masculine” and “feminine” side. Instead, phallic and womb symbolism are on both sides.
My altar is inside of a chest. I like this idea because dust doesn’t get on my sacred objects and the altar is out of sight.
My day-to-day practice includes meditations, walking, divining, healing, and exercises in books such as T. Thorn Coyle’s Evolutionary Witchcraft and Starhawk’s The Earth Path and Twelve Wild Swans.
About the Blog Title
It took me some time to think of a good title. I like the term “Libra” because it’s the sign of the scales i.e equality. Incidentally, it’s my sun sign. Although, I don’t follow astrology, I think there’s some powerful symbolism in the horoscope signs.
I love the smell of lavender. I used it for purification and cleansing – making a space sacred.
