Fear Medicine 2022

Don’t be afraid of the strange places your body and mind are taking you, many are ill right now and suffering, remember the old ways, the artifacts and the objects of the ancient wise ones. The Force of artifacts will replenish your own Force, you just need to remember. Visit these places that people usually avoid, to observe and to feel them. For Deep healing of sickness the 2nd Pentacle of Mars. Much love ❤

Growth – My Descent


My Descent

Inanna please interlace my left hand, Artemis my right,

I need to claim your natural abilities as I start my descent,

Inanna the time has come, for the releasing of my outdated judgement

The falling apart, and the passage to the darkest places yet

This time however, the journey is within me, deeper darker we go

Artemis lady of the beasts, shield me on the journey

I need your warrior spirit, your arrows to hit the right point

To face my wildest deepest, darkest places, I call you

To cradle me, the midwife of my body and soul

Here we meet together the rotting carcass of my judgement

A gift, the fertile soil beneath it, requires my falling apart

Finding my authentic self, my integrity, my reasoning for judgement

To understand, why I got so dam lost, why I harmed me in the process

My assessment, my decisions have turned into a painful gift

That has bought me to this very moment, the awakening

To the source, the trickle, of the creative source

Within me lives the Goddess, The source

The great ocean that connects us all, the power

The primordial sea, the creative source, herself.

Goddess hear my call

Teach me how to embody all the transformations

To be the reaper and the reaped

I need to go through all the changes myself

A deepening , deeper,  understanding

I am the Harvest, this is my wake too

I am the sacred grain

This grain I sow deep in my fertile soil

With new awareness, the cycle continues

The gifts are all

The sower, the reaper, the reaped and the Bread of Life

Just as this bread nourishes

May my path to Her nourish the world.

After I wrote this poem, I travelled north to visit my mother, after being there a few days my mother came towards me with a pendant, asking me if I would like this pendant of hers, as she thought I may like it because of it’s pagan theme. I was blown away, as I had this poem in my heart and this beautiful pendant below became a gift to let me know that I was truly doing Her work to have such a special piece of jewellery be gifted to me at this special time in my life. Synchronicity!


Another Book to Devour!

I was very excited when this book arrived – By Andrew D. Chumbley – THE LEAPER BETWEEN. An Historical Study of the Toad-Bone Amulet; Its Form, Function and Praxis in Popular Magic. Now I am very much on the lookout for a Toad Bone for myself, and frankly annoyed that I missed a perfect opportunity at the old house at Bolwarra Heights as I had the opportunity to get one then.

It seems lately it’s all about turtles as many are presenting themselves, and I have one now dying out under an old ghost gum, hidden under some bark sheds, it’s very pretty and will need polishing when the ants and flies have done their clean out.

Well sadly an unknown source took  the turtle I was drying out hidden under sheets of bark under a ghost gum in the drive, I am wondering what would have taken it, a crow, a fox or just what, a mystery that will never be solved I think. However I went for a walk down to one of the dams here on the 100 acre farm where I live and I found another dead turtle, though this one had been dead a while, so I bought it home and I’ve got it curing inside a bird cage, I am not losing this one!

Quartz Crystals

I have been working and charging a selection of clear quartz crystals for the last year, these have been in my ritual circle here at the temple, for every Full Moon, Eclipse, Dark Moon and New Moon, they are potent and powerful. They have been in rural land surrounded by the river on all sides, they have been exposed to the gentle rains, savage storms and the visiting birds and insects. I now will be offering these sacred pieces for just $20.00 (that includes postage) one only per person after the New Moon on the 25th of December. They are charged for gentle transformation, working with these crystals will ground you in the elements, allowing you to make the subtle changes needed for your own wholeness, great for beginners on this path, and a sacred tool to use throughout 2012. These crystals are limited, so first in gets one, just let me know and one will be put aside for you, thank you for allowing me to give you this sacred object for your further development.
Wise & Blessed Be
