witch By Doreen Valiente Hear now the words of the witches, The secrets we hid in the night, When dark was our destiny’s pathway, That now we bring forth into the light.

Chants, Blessings, Prayers and Charms A Spell to Cast Away Darkness Belisama Fire 2001 In the center of the darkest storm, New Tamper-Resistant OxyContin Tablets to be Released August 2010 - National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) Reformulated OxyContin® tablets, designed to prevent abuse of the prescription pain medication, will be released during the month of August 2010. Purdue Pharma L.P. has notified Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) about the new formulation and provided details about the changes to the tablets. Reformulated tablets have a different marking (“OP” rather than “OC”), and have been designed to prevent the medication from being cut, broken, chewed, crushed, or dissolved – methods that are used to circumvent the timed-release action of the medication. In addition, the reformulated OxyContin 60 mg and 80 mg tablets are slightly larger in size. DEA notes that the release of the new OxyContin formulation, and discontinuation of the prior formulation, may lead to changes in patterns of abuse, related health care needs, and in illegal activities involving OxyContin and other opioid drugs.

Austria Hungary is an aggressive armoured giant, teetering on shoddy foundations.
The Sabbats of Wicca Learn Wicca / Wicca 101 / Faerie Tradition Because witches honor nature, they have eight festivals, or Sabbats, that mark the year as it turns through its seasons. The following is basic information about these Sabbats, and includes both standard Wiccan information as well as my personal Sabbat lore and experiences, in other words, what I perceive the Sabbats to be. Casting a Circle The Purposes of a Circle A sacred circle has several purposes, the most significant of which is to define an area where formal ritual work can be performed. A circle is a place in which the rules and conditions are different to that of the everyday world. A circle is not a barrier, but a doorway to another world. To contain any magickal energy raised and to prevent its dissipation until it has been used up is another purpose of the circle.
The Wiccan Way - Sabbats Wiccans have eight festivals during the year which are referred to as Sabbats. They are solar rituals that mark the movement of the sun as it travels the wheel of the year and of life and nature itself. They are divided into two groups; one of these being the lesser Sabbats which mark the equinoxes and solstices and the others are major Sabbats that mark agriculture and fertility.
