Our Magical New Year

Reblog, ReclaimingPGH

Recently, Reclaiming Pittsburgh hosted our annual community meeting to decide what magic we wanted to Work in 2020. This is a great opportunity for personal and community work that blossoms from a theme or story in mythology. The best part? Anyone can submit their idea!

After a potent experience I had at the Carnegie Science Center a couple months ago, I was struck by the healing wonders of mushrooms. I submitted a proposal with my feelings about how and why adding to the energy of mycelium networks would change all of the worlds… after some discussion and voting, it was chosen! I am delighted that others felt the same way about these transformative (and highly magical) creatures!

Here it is (you can also read the same copy of my vision on ReclaimingPGH’s website):


“Life depends on an extension of generosity.”

Fantastic Fungi: The Magic Beneath Us

As we learn more about the mysteries of mushrooms and expansive networks of mycelium, we discover that their natural way of Being serves BOTH the creature itself and our planet collectively: oyster mushrooms cleaning up oil spills (while reproducing at a rapid rate to the point of thriving); symbiotic fungi and tree seeds being crafted into shipping boxes (that can be composted into new trees and fresh life after use); mutant strains being cultured to eliminate invading termites and destructive pests (in turn creating safe spaces that support life) and more.

Our culture and planet is toxic, both require composting of a drastic nature. It’s our responsibility as earth-loving magic-workers to do something: but this undertaking must also nourish us personally as human beings that have only so much energy to give… or else exhaustion and hopelessness are imminent. 

I believe that Mycelium is a natural Teacher with great technical and magical wisdom in the realms of: creating vast networks for action-oriented teamwork, serving the Collective while also nourishing the Self, transforming toxicity into resources for the future, and modeling resilience in ways we have yet to comprehend. These necessary skills can be channeled into our awareness if we choose to allow Them to guide us.

Healing change for our dying planet, decaying society, and personal baggage is possible if we consciously form an ally ship with the most resilient organism on this planet (that will survive no matter what) and allow them to co-facilitate this transition.


Our community seems to have sparked the attention of lots of new people! I am excited to meet other witches from around the area and transforming all of the worlds.

Are you also called to feed and channel the transformative wisdom of mycelium networks this year?

The Power of the Poison Apple

Reblog

Last week’s coven meeting was powerful for me.

We did a quick trance to go down to meet a deity to find out more about our future work. Instead of meeting a deity, I was approached by a shapeshifter taking the forms of Disney villainesses: Maleficent, the Queen of Hearts, the Evil Queen from Snow White.

She shifted through all of these forms and back again rather rapidly as we walked into the forest, toward a small cottage with a bubbling cauldron in the yard. The cottage felt peaceful and happy but also filled with potent magic.

The being indicated that this was where I was to live, and then handed me a poison apple, a gift for me and those that work with me. She then whispered in my ear, “If the work doesn’t kill them, it won’t transform them.”

I have been sitting with that powerful truth, knowing that this…

CALLING ALL MAGIC WORKERS- A GLOBAL WORKING AGAINST BOKO HARAM

Events, Reblog

~*The breaking of Boko Haram*~

We see you Boko Haram,
As you slay women
and burn children alive,
we see you, as you murder and toss bodies
like trash in landfills,
pits of premature death.
We see all of you, in shadow and in light.
We hear your victims cries,
Spirits seeking retribution.

May these spirits come in other forms,
multitudes of snakes and bees,
attacking your ranks,
reminding your henchman
that Forces live longer than the crimes against them.
We call on the gifts of Scorpio’s stinger,
poisoned stab to your ill-gotten power.
We call on the pointed force of Mars,
His spear trembling,
as Nerio stands, valor embodied.
We call on Saturn wielding his scythe of dissolution,
To take you down,
So innocents can rebuild.

We salt the earth beneath your blighted step.
We strew pollen for the bees
to come and feast for strength
then sting you and your ilk.
We call food for the snakes
to grow strong and quick,
then bite your heels and hurry your step out of power.

Mars, Saturn, Scorpio, snakes, bees, and us,
We rise against you.
They and we remove your comfort,
They and we remove your arrogance,
They and we remove the shadows in which you hide;
They and we expose you by your own weaknesses.
As Mars steps and Saturn swings,
as Nerio stands witness,
and creatures rise against you,
We break your matrix of violence.
With our Will,
With our Gods,
we break you!
We break you!
WE BREAK YOU!

CALLING ALL MAGIC WORKERS- A GLOBAL WORKING AGAINST BOKO HARAM

Invite your friends who would like to support this effort! This event is public. Details are below on the timing and bones of the working. I’ve added a poem I’m going to use (use as desired). I’ll be dressing candles with an herb and oil blend particular to the cause. I personally will be invoking Medusa’s unflinching gaze into the mix as i am working with Her this year. Add your comments, post your outlines, run with it!
