Life as a Magickian Witch is Always Interesting……

Days after this post i just realized the double entendre of the title. I met “Life as a Magickian, Which is Always Interesting” and it came out at “Life as a Magickian Witch is Always Interesting”. Both are true, LOL.

Some pictures from my last few weeks. I loaded these all at once and now WP won’t let me put in a space for a comment without deleting the photo, F me. Enjoy anyway and let your imagination fill in the blanks or ask me what is what.


2May (8)

OK in the light of day and now posted it lets me add text between pics. lesson learned – don’t upload a bunch of high res pics at one time.

Highway to nowhere. Old route 322 which now leads to nowhere except under some grafiti covered bridges, homeless shacks, and probably where people from the SX clubs nearby go to make some money…

Now WP Won’t let me add text between pics let me write something at the very end of all this….. look at pics then skip to the end.

Several pics of the Juniata River in near flood stage from 5 inches of rain in 12 hours.

Pics from archeology dig at The Tavern circa early 1800s built on a Native American longhouse site going back 3000 years. Little piece of pottery my first find, yea, thrilled. But yesterday i realize with my dystonia, sensitivity to light, bad back, bad knees, etc i cannot help dig anymore :(

Pics from local flea market of Sasquatch? LOL.

Pics from Der Schwarze Haus black cabin.

A visit to the old Hbg cemetery to a plot where “my Ghede” is honoured. See uploaded video on FB page if you are in that closed page as i cannot upload it here.

Wren’s nest in propane tank, new bamboo growth, rhododendron blooming, wolf spider w egg sacks. I got bit by a Big one fangs one eighth inch apart, putting on tea tree oil and salve of comfrey and plantain in olive oil base from coveners.

When the concrete layers left n concrete near dried stuck in some old talismans and Indian head pennies in a pentagram i made plus some runes.

After talking to several Hispanics in uptown and the hill ghettos in the Burg found a grocery store with a guy who sells Santeria candles and rosaries the colours of Vodoun elekes. Weird experience. I think he is a Santero. He looked at what this blanc was buying and said “you are The Man” aren’t you? Now i was dressed in black wearing with a purple cane and i had evoked Legba Ghede Exu before this search for a Botanica began, and i said “yes i am The Man”. Now “the man” for Columbians (looked more Andean than Mexican) or others from South America has a totally different meaning than from noirs or from blancs in the north. It would be the same as a witch calling someone a MIB. I look up and he is at the counter standing in front of and surrounded by this Huge Our Lady of Guadalupe statue he had up on a table and she was surrounded by those spike flames. I asked him his name and he said Diego. The name of the store translated means “The Star”. I realized all this later and was blown away. Who had the visit of Guadalupe, who is actually Coatlupia (snake Goddess)? Juan Diego. You fill in the blanks….

From there i crossed into the old cemetery and it being Memorial Day lots of grounds keepers and flags up and yes those are Confederate flags on some who were wounded in battle and died in northern prisons.

Life is Strange as a Magickian….


We Witches, Buddhists and Shaivite Shaki Tantrikas Welcome GBLT Marriage in Pennsylvania and I as a HPT of the COC have offered to help Legally Marry Anyone who wants to be joined in Sacred Union


All Unions Are Sacred

Hello my fellow bloggers. Yes i am still alive though i have not liked or commented on about 200 posts of yours i am behind on now d/t getting the ceiling painted, moving all my altars, hell might as well clean and rearrange them all, having my cellar waterproofed, wonderful job but they broke the line to the full oil tank thus clean up crews, DEP and EPA involved, very complicated, trying to put house together, working on new cabin, yard looks like a farmers field, Jeep inside and out looks like it has been through WWII etc etc etc……

Anyway, in for those living on another planet the conservative State of Pennsylvania passed a yes vote on legal GBLT marriage, conservative parts of the Legislature tried to block it, a Judge said it is legal, and the conservative Catholic on his way out Govenernor says he does not like it but will Not veto the bill. No other State in the NE USA has this. Frigging Amazing.

I wrote a LONG post on this last night and despite saving all revisions the frigging WP “Restore Version” button is dead. Arrrggghhh. So this post is short and quick.

Anyway, some of you may or may not have read these previous posts of my/our fight for legal Witch clergy to legally marry in PA and particularly in the County of Perry. Read All the way down, all the addendums, all the commentc of these two posts.

Know Thyself, Then Do What Thu Wilt Shall Be the Whole of the Law; Love is the Law, Love under Will.

As a service to the central PA Witch, Pagan, Druid, Buddhist, all of the above, none of the above community who are GBLT I/we are offering marriages of Witch style ritual or whatever they want. I have contacted Every organization i could find online, written an email, left VMs, and told them to forward them to their contacts. Several organizations have contacted me so far.

Changes in what this HPT does in the COC – Part Two

Coven of the Catta

ShawnusAthame copyright 2014 GLHoke (1)

This post, and the previous one, which no one seemed to have read except a good blogger friend in the Europe, but no one who is in this coven seems to have noticed or commented. Whatever…..

Anyway, for over three decades i have done the rituals in our circles the Exact way i was taught by Lady Phoebe Exactly like they were copied from her BOSs into mine. When i do rituals on my own, not in group, i add a few things here and there. But now for me though i still consider myself and our wide spread East Coast Probationers and Third Degrees to still be the Coven of the Catta, because me, Lady Alsace and Dutch Jeff are the Only surviving members of the Original COC at the Covenstead at Dr Santee’s library in Wapwallopen PA.

Well, it is time for the next phase at least for…

This Is Worth Watching

I usually don’t post or reblog something like this, but m comment was – “Wow. Awesome kids rapping about a rough subject, bullying. They got personality, talent and their game on for sure, and like a previous comment the judges reactions are not faked but real as they are saying Wow also. Reblogging. TY SRW.”

Silver RavenWolf

We have all suffered from being bullied — I think that is why performances like this touch us so much.  There is the magick of love, compassion, and power as the audience reacts.  Can you feel it?  Clips like this make us stop, think, and urge us to remember that our words have power — whether we are children or adults.

The “Catta” is Growing, Expanding, Evolving and Changing, especially this HPT

Coven of the Catta

 This Priest and Man of Earth has not been posting much of late because i have been Extremely busy both in Malkuth and Kether and in between. I am also, as i recently wrote on the BSSS blog about 3 weeks behind reading your wonderful posts. Maybe some stormy rainy day i will get to those, but will most likely be in the cellar working on various projects on my workbench.

HH iron cross skeleton key

I wrote already about the bridge collapse and that is mostly fixed except for putting some shingles on the wood so it isn’t so slippery when wet. The Nagas and especially Nagiinis did Not want a bridge over that stream here or they would not have wiped away the first one by flood in 2006 and the second one by snow weight collapse this year.

Project mostly complete, the “go with the flow” Taoist bridge that washed down attached…

Shadow Cat’s 14th Birthday today on May Day

shadow cat sun meditation cushion 1

In the sun on the meditation cushion

I have two black cats – Shadow Cat who is a short haired domestic who looks and speaks like she has some Siamese in her. She was a stray a neighbor captured (with bloody scratches all over his hands) and she was about 5-6 weeks old so i have her the birthday of May Day and called her Shadow because when she stood in the dark hallway i could not see her.


Young autumn tree climber

She was born in 2000 so turns 14 on May 1st. She is an inside outside cat and hides in the cellar when most people come over and likes mice and moles. She is the Queen of the house and refuses the cat door and i have to be her doorman.

On the outside tree stump altar

At least once a summer she will go out and do a walkabout disappearing for up to 4 days and then come sauntering home, worries the hell out of me as i look for circling buzzards and drive the road looking for her and even one time put up missing cat signs.

Lookout on the high ground

She is Not happy when i got Spider Cat at all as she is the Queen and he is kinda a big duffus and she hisses and swats with lightening speed at him. It is Rare for them to share a space closer than a few feet, except in the winter in front of the propane heater.

Enjoy the pics of Shadow Cat, starting with my favourite and then as she has grown and even some at the end with long haired black Spider cat who was born near All Hallows in 2005. All pics Copyright 2014 GLHoke.
