I just had a pretty gross dream about a duck. I dreamed I was in a competition where the team who killed the most ducks won. I didn't know what the prize was but I knew I had to kill a duck for my team. We were at a small park surrounding a lake. Out of the corner of my eye, I see a large white duck. It had gray stripes on the end of it's wings. It was very pretty. I started chasing it. I grabbed a large stick and started hitting the duck. I felt so bad for the duck but I knew this was something I had to do. I didn't want the duck to suffer and I decided to put it out of it's misery. I grabbed it's neck and twisted. I felt the spine snap and the soul of the duck leave it's body. It was very chilling. I felt so bad for the poor duck and didn't even have a good reason for killing it - just to win a stupid competition. Then I woke up. I can't stop thinking about that poor duck and what the dream meant. It was so real to me that it had to mean something.

Thank you. That's perfectly in tune with what I was thinking. I'm glad to have a reinforcement so I know that I'm not going off base here. I appreciate your taking time to respond.
Blessed be

My experiences with Hecate to this point have been warm and loving. She has been accepting of my rituals, devotion and offerings. I have not seen her as a dark Goddess. It is because she adapts to what the devotee needs, I believe. After all, she is the Goddess of many faces!

Spells wear off. If you add heat to water, it only stays warm for so long before it returns to room temperature. That's how spells work. You're supposed to take action during the effect of the spell to bring about lasting change, or you can keep putting energy into it to keep it going (but the former is a lot less work) Plants planted as a part of a spell are programmed to keep the energy going, like repeating the spell would- sort of. I mean, it's more like a beacon… but, you hopefully get the idea. But even if the plant didn't die, this effect would slowly wear off eventually unless it was "re-charged" by repeating the spell. Your luck won't "die" with the plant, the energy will still be out there, but it will slowly dissipate. (Sort of) So take advantage of it while it's fresh, it will peak with the fruiting of the plant!

My recommendation is that you save the seeds and plant them again next year, repeating the spell. Make it a ritual, maybe mark one of the spring Sabbats with it. Each time you repeat this, it'll be more powerful as the seeds will gradually become more and more naturally attuned to your intention with each seasonal repetition. And, more importantly, so will you.

You're probably seeing the aura which is going to be more pronounced during spellcasting. The purple color could be related to the witch's own natural energy or the type of energy they are raising. If they really know what they are doing, it would be the latter.

I am not sure if what I'm thinking of is what you are thinking of, but I think I understand the question. Please feel free to ask again if I'm way off: In my circles anyway, we generally refer to people as having good energy, or loving energy or generous energy or sinister or dark, or reptilian or draining or expansive or … whatever… energy, and when we talk about changing that state, say, to become more loving, we talk about changing our vibration.

I believe strongly that the type of energy you put out (or general attitude you portray to the world, based on your inner emotional and mental state) attracts the same kind of energy back to you and that the change comes about from constant work on a deep level, which may include magical work as well as mundane work, including treatment by traditional doctors, psychotherapists and medication when necessary.

hey, thanks so much for getting back to me as soon as you did. I mean in the form of vernacular. Is there a certain term for an emotional or mental state of being? (such as spoken dialect or term that is used in witchcraft that focuses on that; Emotional and mental state of being :p )

Could you elaborate? I'm not sure I understand what you want to know.

Sorry, you are no different from other witches. Rather than worrying about what type of witch you are, perfect your craft.

There's a few different words. Witch is gender-neutral. Warlock is usually male. Wizard

I am not 100% sure, but I think it is because everything is vibrating and we're just more aware of it in an astral state.

Hello!
I want to know,why we feel vibrations during Astral Projection?
Thank you. :)

I agree that the Greek and Roman pantheons are quite different when you really get to know them. Venus, for example, is much more of an agricultural Goddess related to viticulture, and Aphrodite is closer to the sea. It was the way of ancient honor societies to impose their culture on others, but the history remains. That being said, it's not that hard to incorporate the planetary energies into a Hellenic practice. I am not terribly traditional about it, but I have found that using the zodiac signs works very well. I have incorporated them into my Noumenia observations, assigning each Zodiac sign to a God or pair of Gods, so that each New Moon, someone gets a ritual and it cycles through. The New Moon is in the same zodiac sign as the sun. I once came across a calendar that was attributed to Orpheus (I can't say how accurately) that didn't quite match up with mine, though it was close. I just looked for it again but I can't find it. I think Hellonion also runs on a similar model, but I don't think they adhere strictly to the New Moon because it's just too complicated when there are a lot of people involved and the modern calendar cares nothing for the lunar cycle. I am rambling, I am not sure if I was helpful.

With regard to the issue of different pantheons in general, I don't think it's necessary that you restrict yourself hard and fast to one pantheon. I do think it's important to establish a relationship with your Gods and not call every God of Love ever conceived of to come help you out with your marital problems, but rather the one that you know and who knows you and might actually care based on an already established relationship. As a hard polytheist, I don't believe they are the same Gods, obviously, but since I do believe that all Gods are individual and real and true and valid, I think they're all due at least the basic level of respect you'd give a stranger of some authority. I have been to a festival or Pomona, and a Wiccan Circle, and various other groups that had their own Gods and I give them full honors when I am there. When I find myself in a Christian church, I do that God honor too, just because it's polite. When you go to someone else's house, you are nice to their friends (and their Gods). I also have connected local and perhaps unnamed (at least in human terms, officially) Gods or Daimons that honor, because I am on their land, after all.

I think the point she was making is that Hemlock stinks, not advocating you go around sniffing it on purpose. If what you have stinks like pee, it's not yarrow.

by Robin (guest), 16 Jun 2017 14:03

Thanks. I feel more comfortable with the Greek Gods.

We have many ducks in our backyard all the time. But yesterday in the middle of all the males and females was a Snow White one. I can't find anything to tell me what that means!!

DO NOT SMELL HEMLOCK FLOWERS. Although it may not kill an adult, it has been documented to have killed children. Best thing to do it be able to identify it from as far away as possible. And please keep your pets away from it as well.
