Own Your Path

Whatever your path is, it is your own individual path to walk. No two people will have exactly the same path or do things in exactly the same way.

Recently I’ve been hearing about people criticising others’ paths. It will happen. Wiccans are commonly known as fluffy, Recons unspiritual, Traditional Witches make things up and so on and so forth.

There will always be criticisms. Sometimes the worst ones come from people who are walking a similar path to you, who ask if you shouldn’t be doing this or that.

Don’t worry about what others think, it’s whether what you are doing is correct and right for your path that is the most important thing. Think through carefully what you are doing and then you will have the knowledge to argue against others’ criticisms of your path, can do so and hold your head up high.

Recognising Signs

If you see something which you think is a sign, for example six robins, then the best way to find out what it means is to search on the net for the meaning. Then write the meaning down somewhere, as most of us don’t have people who taught us what the various signs meant and it’s easy to forget them.

If you don’t know what the animal/insect/bird you have seen is, then if you want to find out what the sign means you will have to look through identification books. It can be a long, hard slog, but it’s worth it. This is one of the reasons to keep identifying nature as you come across it.

I go on the principle that if there’s three or more of something, then it’s definitely a sign, as you can go seeing signs everywhere if you’re on the lookout for them.

Psychic Defence by Dion Fortune

This is a book in which Dion Fortune writes about her own experiences of being psychically attacked and helping others who have been attacked, which serves to make the book feel more real. She is obviously someone who has had extensive experience of psychic attack.

The first part of the book deals with entities that make psychic attacks, the second deals with how they make psychic attacks and the third deals with methods of defence.

I hope to never have to use the methods of defence outlined in this book, as the author states that psychic attacks are rare, but this is one to buy just so that you have the information if you need it. This is an easy and a really good book to read, and fortunately it’s going to be republished soon.


Last Friday my mother-in-law died of a cerebral haemorrhage. This was unexpected and a shock, but what I have determined is that I am going to do my own ritual for her passing.

There will be a funeral service, but I am going to write my own. I’ve been to two funerals where everyone seemed to be going through the motions. The service didn’t have any feeling behind it and there was no celebration of the person’s life and achievements.

I want to celebrate that and say what a great person she was. This seems to be missing from modern British funerals.

Interesting Times

Of all the planets that make life interesting, in my opinion Uranus is the worst. It is the worst because it governs things that are unseen until they strike, like lightning and electricity.

I have found that Uranus will strike without warning. The best thing to do under a negative Uranus transit is to make sure you are protected and to be careful. For example, Uranus is currently opposite my natal Pluto. Last week a car flashed its lights at me in the street to say I could cross the road. Instead of going ahead and crossing I looked to my right to check there was nothing coming. A milk van immediately whizzed around the corner. If I had stepped out I could have been looking at several broken bones and a long time off work.

Everyone has trouble during their Saturn return, as Saturn stops things happening. When Saturn is in a positive aspect, this means that Saturn puts the brakes on to stop you going full tilt ahead. In a negative one, or Saturn return, things just aren’t happening and the best thing to do is to wait until they start happening again. In my case, this took 2.5 years as Saturn was moving back and forward.

Pluto can be troublesome, but it is a planet concerned with hidden things such as your psyche and identity. Dark and troublesome things can be unearthed during a negative aspect, while even a positive aspect can be unsettling.
