Perfection is Overrated...

Hey!! So, I know this post isn't really Wiccan/Pagan/etc. related, but I just felt the need to post this :)

Lately I've been noticing a lot of things... Like bullying, ridicule, and people thinking they aren't good enough... And it makes me sad to see or hear things like that. Things like kids being bullied because others think they aren't good enough, or because they aren't like them... And, needless to say, I felt a strong need to blog about it!

Nobody is perfect. Cliche, I know; but it doesn't make those words any less true. No one should strive for perfection, because it's unattainable. No matter how big or small, there will always be flaws... So embrace them! Love your flaws for what they are, and don't try to hide them. In my opinion, there's nothing more beautiful than flaws; because they show people for what they truly are: human. No one was ever meant to be perfect in every which way, but you can be perfect in your own way... And that's the best way of all. :)

Perfection is overrated. So stay imperfect, you're all beautiful that way. ❤

I guess that's all for now... So,until next time, stay beautifully imperfect, my lovelies!

Love, Light & Imperfection (<-- I couldn't resist ^.^)...
Blessed be,

Full Moon in June!

So the full moon is in the next few days! And, in celebration of the full moon, I wanted to do a nice little blog about it!

Typically, when doing a ritual on a full moon (or really any moon phase), it's referred to as an "Esbat". It's a full moon celebration that's typically the time for initiation/dedication ceremonies, healing magic, etc. As oppose to a "Sabbat" celebration.

As for a full moon ritual, it can be either extremely complex, with multiple elements to it. Or, it could just be a simple ritual. Either way, it's entirely up to you and what you want to do when for your full moon ritual. That goes for really anything, though. It all boils down to what you want to do, and what you're comfortable with! :)

For some more info on the full moon/Esbats, I'll be providing a few links! Some include examples of full moon rituals, others may not. Enjoy!




In spirit of the moon, here is a nifty little poem I fount! :)

~Allure of a Full Moon~

Shinning Silver while the sun sleeps.
The moon begins her silent creep.
A glowing disk that entice the tide.
Dancing with the sea as waves collide.
She comes to me most every night.
Bringing with her dreams of flight .
But must depart with the coming day.
She Walks in Beauty and can not stay.
Fear not We'll meet once more.
As the sun goes down She'll be at my door.


Here's where I fount this cute little poem! There's a lot more, and I love them!

May the love and light of the Goddess bless you this full moon!

I suppose that's all I have to say for now! Have a wonderful Esbat this month, and may the love of the Lord and Lady be with you, always. ❤

Blessed be!

The Bells and Whistles?

Yikes! I know it has been a super long time since my last blog, so I'm sorry about that! School has just had me super busy so I've been primarily focused on that! :)

This post is more of my personal opinion on the "bells and whistles". Or, in other words, all of the magickal and ritual tools / items that we all seem to love!

Now, though tools and altar items like the athame, candles, incense, stones, and all of those other things that look pretty are nice to have, in my personal opinion (and others opinions) they aren't the most important thing when it comes down to it. Religiously speaking, of course. Because, you see, the more important thing is your relationship with deity, with the Goddess and the God.

The tools and odd and end items are a nice addition, but never let them come before that uncanny relationship and connection with your deity! Remember that, my lovelies! For it is the love of the God and Goddess that is the best gift, the best "tool". Their love and light are infinite, but those other tools are finite. There truly is nothing like the love of deity, and the relationship between you and your gods. Always remember that! Then comes those other things: the tools and other items.

So, if there's something you want, but can't afford or can't find, don't sweat it! You have that infinite relationship with deity, remember? And, when the time is right, you'll be able to get all those things you may want, or, in the future, you may realize you never really wanted or even needed them. Or, perhaps you'll end up making your own tools (which is a very great idea, might I add!). Deity first and foremost, then the bells and whistles can come later. :)

I guess that's all for now! I hope you enjoyed this little post! :)

Many blessings of love & light to you all!

Blessed be!
