So following on from Sophie’s last post…

I will keep this as short as possible. It is true that the first half of this year has been a bit of a struggle for me generally and in terms of my spiritual path. My mother died and as anyone who has dealt with grief will know, that is a difficult emotional thing to go through and it throws all sorts of questions, doubts and confusion into the mix. In addition to that our own little group/coven was at a crossroads and looking to me to some degree for leadership.

To summarise the main questions and confusions that were playing on my mind they were as follows. 1) Could/would my mother accept my Satanic beliefs and lifestyle? 2) Is Satanism a really complete and accurate description of my spiritual path anyway? 3) am I knowledgeable or experienced enough to have a leadership…

Good Morning Lovlies!

Are you preparing for the New Moon this Saturday, April 18,2015?

Now is the perfect time to de-clutter and purify anything in your life that is dragging you down or holding you back. Let go and let Goddess! On the New Moon we need to be ready with a clean home, clean car, and clean life.

As we burn our Sage or Magickal Herbs to welcome new beginnings and new abundance as well as new and better choices in our life. It is time to cut our cords with the past. And this is true for Witches and CHRISTIANS alike!

In the Bible the Hebrews based all of their rituals, holy days and such on the moon cycle. In fact, Christians, Jesus crucifixion was set on the Sabbath New Moon, because God designed this time as a symbol of new life and new birth which is…

New Moon Lunatic

Thank you for this very honest full of the F word post. I needed to read this this morning. I am not in your situation but going through similar circumstances. It is So hard to keep one’s head above the waters of despair and unpaid bills and being disabled and living on half i used to make and trying to get a part time job as a care giver in a field of medicine far below what i used to do. I have no children but my patients were my children and grandparents and i so miss helping people. I pray to the Goddess and even to Jesus and Mary and at least have beautiful nature around me to keep me relatively sane. Blessings to you, and BTW what Beautiful children you have and what a nice smile you have. Lee/Shawnus

Looking for love and don’t know where to find it? Feeling overwhelmed as a single mom? Frustrated about not living your financial dreams? I got you!

Wow! Did I just receive a whammy of New Moon energy. Suddenly I sank into a pit of despair, wailing like a banshee, howling my pain out all over Facebook!

It sucks being a single mom. There is no way to put it nicely. There is no joy in it. Of course there is joy in loving and being loved by our children, but doing that completely alone is what I’m talking about.

So I screamed and howled. I complained and whined. It wasn’t a pretty picture. I know I really can’t blame anyone but myself. I was too naive and ignorant to realize how important being young is and what to do with it. So I squandered it.

I married men who clearly…

My Teacher, Lady Phoebe Athene Nimue, Would Have Been 94 Today

Coven of the Catta

Today is the birthday of Lady PAN, and as the title says she would have been 94 had she lived this long instead of passing 5 December 2005, so this December she will be gone for 10 years. I loved that Lady, my Teacher of Witchcraft. I am going to try to paste into this post a short bio from a Word doc which is in the booklets I have written about the Coven of the Catta.

A Day in the Life of an Appalachian Witch 19-20 February 2015 – A Trip to Wapwallopen and some Weird Synchronocities with the Living and the Dead

Coven of the Catta

After no sleep at 4am I spontaneously drove north to the Berwick / Nescopeck / Wapwallopen area. I stopped half way up that two hour trip and took an hour long cat nap in a parking lot of an abandoned business distribution center.

Unfortunately i was not able to meet with two of the High Priestesses in the Coven d/t their schedules. I did meet with an old coven member for awhile before she had her son, whom i had never met before, take her to a doctor’s appointment to have her new pacemaker checked out, something i did of course for 11 years. Her home health aid was there and Lady Persephone and I were able to talk Witchcraft openly in from of the aid and the son for a short time, then i moved on.

So i decided to visit Council Cup mountain again after a trip to…

Lee’s Photo Dump from the Last Week or so – All Pictures Copyright GLHoke 2015

Photos taken in the last few weeks. All photographs Copyright GLHoke 2015. If you want to know the place, date and context of the photo, please email me at leeshawnus@gmail.com though no one has ever done that. It is very late, and i am too tired to add comments, maybe tomorrow. Blessed Be and Enjoy !!!

OK, in the not so bright state of my first cup of coffee and a cigarillo i will attempt to ID some of these pics and their context. Descriptions above not below the pics.

Huge clay pickling jar with blue pentagram at local flea market co-op. Sorry the pic is slightly out of focus, but it was worth photographing it and i did not not the focus being off until too late.

13 Feb (1)

At same co-op a Civil War Calvary officer’s sword and sheath.

13 Feb (2)

Old straight razors. i am bought a cheaper one somewhere else and am going to attempt to use it to same on throw away razors for environmental and financial reasons. I already have the strap for sharpening it like at the old Barbour shops.

13 Feb (3)

Seven miles upriver there was a major AmerIndian battle over a large arrowhead shaped stone that was a talisman of victory in war. This is a smaller version made of stone not native found by the old coot who is extremely intelligent and world smart on his property. I will explore the area and walk the river when it is not like Antarctica  outside.

15 Feb (1)

Yea a warm morning here….

15 Feb (2)

Looking down through the old coot’s junk laden yard towards the battle site. Note the beam of light in the pic. It feels weird there and i am getting a chill now just thinking about it.

15 Feb (3)

His old 140 year old falling apart barn he is going to tear down and sell the weathered oak, which is one inch thick, and the old signage for the old hotel in town.

15 Feb (4)

Closeup of the smaller arrow head shaped marker stone. Looks like a dark oil shale stone to me, not too common here, but sometimes seen in this coal region.

15 Feb (6)

Cauldrons of iron and copper at the local co-op. I already have more cauldrons than a Coven of Macbeth’s Witches LOL.

15 Feb (7)

15 Feb (8) 15 Feb (9) 15 Feb (10) 15 Feb (11)

In a town nearby, on a road i have never driven, i found a place where they carve headstones for graves. It was closed d/t his/her father dying. How ironic. Nearby i found these standing stones and will wait a few days to call and find out what the hell they are and who erected them.

16 Feb (1)

16 Feb (9) 16 Feb (10) 16 Feb (12) 16 Feb (13) 16 Feb (14)

Footprints in the snow of the frozen stream of rabbits, birds and a cat walking out to my neighbor’s bridge. BTW i saw prints of a maybe 2 year old bear, not sure what he/she is doing out of hibernation this time of year, but with nothing to eat in nature i am sure it will be hitting the garbage cans, my bird feeders, and any fawns it can run down.

20 Feb (1) 20 Feb (2) 20 Feb (3)

For the first time in 12 years here the stream with all its rapids is Totally frozen.

20 Feb (4) 20 Feb (5)

Goddess altar on the old stump at Snakehenge at sunset.

20 Feb (6)

In the big old outhouse near the Red Lodge aka Black Cabin i am going to raise chickens this spring and here are some of the hens for sale locally, some of which lay coloured eggs. But i can get mine free from several friends, and laying cages for them too, just have to put up a fence to keep out the foxes and other predators.

20150221_131742

The deep artificial lake nearby has over a foot of frozen ice, so ice fishermen were out, crazy people i guess lol, and i walked around the middle of the lake, first time since 2005.

The Duties of a Witch High Priestess and High Priest for a Wiccan Rite of Passage even for someone you do not know, but who Is a Witch

Coven of the Catta

i have been dwelling for days trying to write the words to this blog post, because there are so many profound angles and synchronicitys to it all. So i am just going to ramble on and tell it.

To supplement my meager SSD and pension incomes i am in the buy-sell-trade business and run it out of the back of my jeep. I dumpster dive, stop at places with lots of “junk” in the yard, meet a lot of interesting people that way, go to yard sales, go to store front buy-sell-trade stores, find stuff along the road, dig up stuff in old forgotten dumps, etc etc etc. I make a little extra money that way, but also find some treasures i cannot part with and make some Incredible deals. My specialties are old iron tools, antiques furniture, and religious iconography. It keeps me busy and distracted and gives me…
