I really wish I wanted to work with Odin. Really, I do. On paper, a deity who repeatedly makes great sacrifices for wisdom seems like my kind of guy, and as a writer, I’d even go so far as to say I have an obligation to honor him. In practice, I just can’t get past the All-father thing or his…

I was intimidated by Odin and decided to read to him. It’s informal and pretty non confrontational. You will feel his energy so I don’t know you can but it certainly helped me to approach him as less stern and more relaxed. 

I like this idea. I’ll try it next time I feel the urge to reach out to him. Now, to choose something appropriate for the occasion. (I’m guessing the trashy romance Amazon Prime gave me for free this month is out.)

Unless that’s the vibe you would like to give him. ;) I am reading some historical fiction about the area I live in.

maddiviner:

Would any non-Wiccan witches reading this please reblog it so that I can follow you? I know a lot about Wicca, but not terribly much about other forms of witchcraft and would like to learn more.

He outs people who are practitioners without their permission. One woman complained because she uses a psuedonym to avoid a dangerous stalker. Christian Day, I swear to fuck, said he “I hope your stalker has some fun with you” and “Oh, and by the way, if he rapes you, please call out my name as he does”. 

THIS FUCKING ASSHOLE JUST TOLD SOMEONE HE HOPED THEIR VIOLENT STALKER WOULD RAPE THEM. BTW, most violent rapists either severely beat or murder their victims.

THIS is why we need to vet out leaders and Big Name Pagans. THIS is why you need to question people’s intentions and persons because THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE. These are people who think because they’re well known in a niche community that they’re safe and we, as a whole, can’t do anything to them. Which is complete and utter bullshit. They’re only famous because we let them be and we can end their untouchable status by standing up to them, as a community, and saying NO. 

Since Day is on the board of the Salem tourism organization Destination Salem (twitter.com/DestSalem) I recommend contacting the Salem Chamber of Commerce to ensure they are aware of his behavior and its impact on public perception:

Tel 978.744.0004

Fax 978.745.3855

Reblogging for new information.

Text 26 Aug 309 notes Portable circle

honeycoyote:

For those in you who like to use salt when casting a circle. Has anyone ever considered making a portable outdoor circle by taking a large hula hoop and pouring salt inside it? This way you could have salt and not be harming the environment.

Also you could decorate it with colorful tape to represent the elements. Or raise energy by hula hooping. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

Sometimes I feel like the Vanir are the gods I come home to, while Odin is like the friend who shows up every so often and you tell yourself you’ll behave yourself with him this time but suddenly you’re double fisting bottles of jack in the middle of the desert howling with coyotes while Odin shoots guns at saguaro cacti from horseback.

Pictures taken at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in Weston, WV. Formerly known as the Weston State Hospital (built in the mid 1800’s). I took these photos on a trip to West Virginia in the summer of 2011. The 4th and 5th pictures in the series are of a small storage unit used to temporarily hold the bodies of patients who passed away at the hospital.

Apparently at its height the hospital was a big source of revenue for the town. Since its closure a couple decades ago, the town has fallen into a horrible state of disrepair and driving through Weston to get to the hospital left us feeling a tad unsettled. An amazing building to visit and tour through, however.

All photos were taken and belong to Sharon Porter. Please do not steal or use anywhere else without permission.

This location needs to be turned into a haunted house.


It basically has been. They are restoring it and giving tours.

Anonymous said: I'll admit, this is partially nitpicking. But I recently saw a post going around regarding heathen witches and I thought that the Norse had a term to cover magical practices? (seidr I think?) Wouldn't it make more sense to use that word instead of such a long phrase?

Witchcraft and seidr are not necessarily the same thing. People who don’t use it don’t for a reason.
