Rite of Passage: Running with the Storm

The Elders stand in a semi-circle within the sanctuary. The High Priestess and Shaman stand on either side of the portal and the Summoner in front of it. A storm is brewing in the north, for it is the sky gods who prepare the trials to come for the young initiate warrior. The air is…Read more Rite of Passage: Running with the Storm

Pythia – Deep #writephoto

My offering for Sue's Thursday Photo Prompt Deep #writephoto is a return journey to the Oracle at Delphi. A place mysterious, awe-some and a little terrifying. The answers being sought are always couched in unclear and misleading language. To give the true answer would change destinies and the mouth piece of the Goddess cannot interfere in human…Read more Pythia – Deep #writephoto

Saint Germain

An interesting choice and thought provoking message being conveyed by the card. St Germain is an intriguing and quite mysterious character. As previously stated these ‘messages’ provide me with an opportunity to explore my own creative processes (especially blockages hindering the psyche). I’ll wait to see what emerges over this weekend.

Saint Germain: “Karma Releasing”

“Move beyond drama. Create your own path. Make room for good energy.”

About Saint Germain: “Saint Germain was born in France in the 18th century and is said to have been given a new identity because he was the love child of two very powerful people. He was well educated and able to rub shoulders with royalty. He was also deeply interested in magic, alchemy and the cosmos and able to perform real-life miracles and turn lead into gold. Now he helps us move beyond social limitations to connect with the right people for the highest good. He is still a master alchemist and able to…

Blueprint

My story of an Alchemist and his daughter was first aired in Sue Vincent's Thursday Photo Prompt Flames #writephoto, it was entitled Ignis. The short tale can be read on many levels, with alchemy at its heart. The simplest definition I can find so far of this venerable art comes from Cherry Gilchrist’s book “Alchemy:…Read more Blueprint

Nine Of Pentacles

The message is clear here and the advice is to be acted on.

Nine Of Pentacles: “Rich reds, purples, browns and greens blend together, creating a luscious kaleidoscope of colour. The sweet scent of blackberries dances with the lingering spicy perfume of rose. The gifts of the earth are on display, and her kin are preparing to celebrate the year’s great abundance. After donning her best gown and carefully centering her finest jewels, she takes a few minutes in her own private garden before joining the others.

This season has been a good one for all, she muses, but the spirits of the land have been especially generous with her. Her own vines and gardens have produced treasures that have exceeded even her own high expectations. Closing…

Breath of Life, Breath of Change (Guest Blog)

Another one of my concoctions, meandering down the usual eccentric paths.

I wasn’t sure how to approach the subject of this post initially. His Nibs is standing by with a neutral expression on his face, so no help there. For people who are unfamiliar with the inhabitants of my Shed, His Nibs (aka Anubis) is a regular visitor apart from the Trickster Hare. It’s been a while since the two of us had met up and perhaps our meeting on this occasion should have been rescheduled. I should explain that a horrible cold is plaguing me at the moment. Blocked sinuses, a congested chest and unproductive cough are testing my mettle. I feel tired and want to hibernate. Boo hoo!

 At least you’re not so snotty now, I believe that is the correct term applicable here? comments the Jackal god.

That made me pause. He has a point you know, I should be thankful. My inner and outer…

Bridge of Sighs by Jan Malique #writephoto

My contribution to Sue's photo prompt this week sees the return of an old, em, youngish old friend Little Troll. Like many trolls he lives under a bridge in a tardis like home but that’s where the similarity ends. He’s not a typical example of his kind, what troll has refined tastes in food, literature…Read more Bridge of Sighs by Jan Malique #writephoto

Eyes of the Beholder – The Writer’s Quote Challenge

  Bernadette's writing challenge this week involved numerous attempts at finding the right quote. I finally settled upon something from St-Exupéry's book "The Little Prince." There was no mysterious impulse that guided me to the book. Or was there? I happened upon a quote about the beauty of the desert and wells from the same tome…Read more Eyes of the Beholder – The Writer’s Quote Challenge
