Stick-gods ~ God of Embalming

I’m sorry for the lack of posts- no Internet still

Any way today is me and my hubs 9th anniversary!

Lost a follower. Sorry I disappoint

It makes me sad that a lot of you are too young to remember Y2K.

the Fetch, the Witch, and the Gods

When a member of the Wandering Coterie travels into the Otherworld they manifest via what the Stardust Compass defines as a Fetch. This Fetch is often in the form of an animal referred to herein as the Fetch Beast (oft remaining unchanged throughout the lifetime of the witch), a variant of their current physical form (from naked to clothed, younger to older), or can even be interfaced with as an independent third-party entity referred to herein as the Fetch Partner. However, the Fetch is much more than just a beast or spirit-form of the Witch; it can oft extend far beyond (and have impacts beyond) the simple traversal of, and interactions with, denizens of the Otherworld at this unique point in space-and-time.

Note: the term ‘Fetch’ is utilized within other strains of Traditional Witchcraft, frequently with highly differing variations as to it’s meaning. Like other pieces of the gnosis driven materia forming the Stardust Compass, this too has it’s own unique variants on the definition compared to sister-paths.

"I shall go into a hare,
With sorrow and sych and meickle care;
And I shall go in the Devil’s name,
Ay while I come home again.”
— Isobel Gowdie, 1662

The Fetch as Beast

When a member of the Wandering Coterie manifests in the Otherworld, they will primarily do so in a non-human, animalistic form. While it is true that a cunning witch can

The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear,…

Teen Wolf Tattoos were literally EVERYWHERE at San Diego Comic Con. Check out more on The Collective.

And thanks to Todd and the team at Nothing Sacred Tattoos for the awesome designs!

Another spiritual symbol having is meaning diluted by a television show. Add it to the list.

I ate at a Greek restaurant over the weekend and it was awesome. (There’s gyro meat under the pita) I also had baba ganoush for the first time.

I cannot express the joy I had just eating this food.
It felt like a spiritual experience. I had tears in my eyes.

Yes. Yes, I did. But while she was my starting point and answered questions for me that I needed answered in that awkward in-between phase of transitioning from Christianity, she most certainly did not turn out to be a big influence on me :-) That credit goes to the lovely and awesome Ellen Dugan ^_^

Not me.

Thea Sabin was my first Wiccan book. Scott Cunningham the second. :)

The internet here.

Even when I was a teenager it was really hard for me to take an adult who called themselves “silver ravenwolf” seriously. Like how many “spooky” buttons are you trying to press with one name.

The second book I got was a SRW book and a lot of SRW-esque websites. The first book I got was The Wiccan Spell Book by Gerina Dunwich.

I’m not afraid to admit that I started out fluffier than a bag of Norwegian forest cat kittens. Most folks start out fluffy. Its a part of learning and growing.

Honestly? I wish I’d had someone to say “Wait! Don’t get that book!” when I was starting out. Sure, I looked around on the internet but most of what I found was stuff like everthingunderthemoon.net, so I mean…… yanno.

First book was Principles of Thelema. 

The SRW books I have were given to me by someone who heard I was starting out and thought they were helping. 

By that time, I was already aware of how problematic she is. 

I started with studying classical myth in school both in my free time and as a class. Then I was introduced to LaVeyan Satanism, followed by Thelema.

I picked up one of those idiot guide type books to paganism which briefed on Wicca, Druidism and Asatru. I became active on the Pagan/Wiccan forum on About.com and bought Bucklands Big Blue.

I learned about SRW and a few other authors that were problematic from the forum. I have NEVER read an SRW book. Though I did look at her website and felt it was pretty obvs how she attracted newbs. It was definitely targeted towards teens.

So I guess I went backwards in the order I learned stuff? I can say this though, I’ve never been Wiccan or neo Wiccan. So anon you are wrong.
