Beginning Rune Magick

I was recently asked to share how I work with runes. I want to start with saying I am not an expert and only starting this journey purposefully in 2016 despite being aware of and learning about runes off and on over the years. Beginning Rune Magick is a process that I still feel like I’m a novice at so…

I believe its in connection to teething as he might be getting one of his eye teeth (K9 teeth) earlier than expected and they “stomach teeth” as my family calls them, tend to be the most problematic with teething symptoms such as fevers and diarrhea.

Divine Sex: Intimacy with Gods

This is a topic that I’ve avoided, struggled with, and hid away for a while now. I kept quiet about it because I know full well the majority of the people I know, even the Pagans, Heathens, and Witches that I associate with, will think I am crazy or desperately seeking attention.
