Lessons from the Moon-as said by Noelle

Sometimes, the battle in Witchcraft is to keep from over-complicating it. In the end, it's simply communion and worship of the Moon. One of my personal spiritual tasks is to remind myself to go back to being the young solo-witch, chanting to the Moon in my parents' backyard. Running Covens, writing books and blogs, publishing Tarot--those are all delicious and adventurous additives, but not the core of the Craft. It's easy to forget that and hard to remember to go back into the backyards of our own souls, and gaze up on the cool, white globe that brought us to this Path in the first place.

Thank you, Noelle, for this reminder today.

Subway Spells and Fuckwads

Yesterday, I rode the subway downtown.

The subway lends itself to underworld experience because it IS the underworld. It's underground. But this experience wasn't so much underworldly as it was defensive.

Somewhere between Times Square and 34th street, a douchebag boarded the train. This one had a Bible in his hand and announced to the car, "ALL GAYS WILL BURN IN HELL!"

I'm not gay. But I was definitely burning. If I were stupidly brave enough, I would have called him out. But I'm intelligently cowardly. You never know what kind of weapons a douchebag will carry.

The Douche went on and on. He was "eloquent", so to speak, in that he was able to deliver a sentence from beginning, middle, and end in a loud and clear voice.

I got mad. I invoked Brid. "Brid, this asshat is hurting your children with hurtful words in a confined space." I began chanting a little spell to make him silent. I wanted him to get a coughing fit and stop speaking all together. I really wanted him to leave the train. He didn't do any of those, but as I continued chanting, I envisioned a steel spike through his tongue and superglue to seal his mouth. "Seal his lips and seal his tongue," I chanted. The chanting increased in intensity until I was rocking in my seat, my crown chakra buzzing.

He didn't stop speaking, but he lost all eloquence. Instead of finishing full sentences laced with hate, he began stuttering. "So...let me tell you about gays....in the bible...I mean...in the BIBLE...it says that gays are.....well....let me just tell you about GAYS."

But he was suddenly unable to say shitty things about gays.


So there, Mr. Hating Douchebag! You mess with lots of juju when you say shitty things.

And for the rest of you Witches out there, invoke your powers to stop hate and irritations wherever they are. Maybe this will work for public masturbaters, too.

In Ireland.

So, please pardon me if it takes me forever and a day to get back into the groove of blogging!!! I'm too distracted by green and beer.
