Sometimes my depression makes me so exhausted and unmotivated that I don’t have the energy to make myself anything to eat. Other times, it makes me feel so hollow I have the need to stuff my face with all the food in my kitchen to try to get rid of the emptiness.
I’ve seen a few posts from people in Ireland claiming how frustrating it is that people in America want to reclaim the old Irish religion and culture, but are doing nothing to help preserve the current Irish culture that is slowly fading away.
What can we do to help? I’m genuinely curious because I really do want to help.
I feel like, for me, part of being a witch means hoarding craft supplies (both artsy craft and witchy craft) and never using them, not because I don’t know what to do with them, but because I have too many ideas. I’m just saving them for the best projects.
Why does Hollywood always show witches casting spells in Latin? Like, how many witches out there actually write and use long Latin phrases in their spell craft?
Anonymous asked: What does a shortened lock of hair behind the left ear mean for being a devotee of Lugh? Signed, a rather confused Norse-leaning newbie.
In general, it doesn’t have any specific symbolism. It’s completely personal.
When I made my formal devotions last Mabon, I put two braids in my hair and promised to keep them in until Samhain as a symbol of that bond, and when that night arrived, I would either keep the locks or cut them off.
There was wine and meditation involved once Samhain arrived, but the gist of it is that Brighid’s braid stayed, because I’d been hers longer and she didn’t seem to need the additional proof. Since my devotion to Lugh was newer and I hadn’t proven myself just yet, that braid was cut off and is waiting to be bound up with a formal pledge this summer.
The lock is growing back, albeit slowly. It’s almost down to my shoulder, which looks a little funny since the rest of my hair is down to my hips.
That’s so funny, when I felt drawn toward Laugh the other day, I decided to braid a piece of my hair for Him, and figured I would leave it in as a way to honor him and remind myself of Him when I touch it. I hadn’t read that anywhere, it was just a feeling I had. And you did it too! I wonder why Lugh likes braids…
I just really like her voice and the simplicity of this song
