We Are the Other People Oberon (Otter) Zell The following is an Article published three or four years ago in Green Egg. "Ding-dong!" With the stage set and all the actors in place, the show is ready to begin. "Hunh? Right," I say. Now clearly, here we are talking about the original creation of the human species: male and female. The next chapter talks about how Yahweh, an individual member of the Pantheon, goes about assembling his own special little botanical and zoological Garden in Eden, and making his own little man to inhabit it: (Gen 2:7) Yahweh God fashioned a man of dust from the soil. Then Yahweh decides to make a woman to go with the man. Now this next part is where it starts to get interesting. (Gen. 3:6) The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and pleasing to the eye, and that it was desirable for the knowledge that it could give. And so the sign of the Fall becomes modesty. (Gen. 3:12) The man replied, "It was the woman you put with me; she gave me the fruit, and I ate it." Get that?

Icelandic magical staves Icelandic magical staves (sigils) are symbols called Galdrastafur in Icelandic, and are credited with magical effect preserved in various grimoires dating from the 17th century and later. According to the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft, the effects credited to most of the staves were very relevant to the average Icelanders of the time, who were mostly subsistence farmers and had to deal with harsh climatic conditions.

Magickal Education for Youths & Adults alike! | Grey School of W The Hedge Wife: Magical Herbalism Part 1 Witchcraft and herbalism go hand in hand and have done so for centuries. In the past, witches were called wise women or wise men and were often the only people their neighbors could go to for healing. Doctors were sparse and so expensive only gentry could afford them or...there were none to be found in general. Today, many witches are returning to their roots so to speak and looking to find a connection to the earth by healing themselves and those around them with herbs and plants. I wanted to do a series of posts to collect data online into one place for easier research not only for myself but for others looking. The following are site and blogs that provide magical herbal information. Wicca.com has a great reference list form A-Z of herbs and their magical properties. Witch of Forest Grove has a great series of posts called Weeds for Witches that include Dandelion and Clover, two of my favorite weeds. I hope you find many blessings in the links given.
