Merry Meet everyone!! I think it is a wonderful idea! I am glad I am not the only one who kinda feels that Samhain and new beginnings don't quite fit together as some of the other sabbats.

Re: Pagan families thread!

I think Samhain is a good place to start to close old chapters and begin the house cleaning, but agree Imbolc is a good place to start opening the windows, so to say to start letting new things in.

As for me, I am a seriously lazy Pagan, who idenitifies as ecclectic/kitchen witch. I really need to do more for my DS.

Willow fresh bread yummy!!!!

I need to read more about Imbolc, we've been staying with DHs grandma since January so we didn't do anything for Imbolc this year.

Pantheist here. Just saying hi. Great thread!

I am partial to Beltane. Wash your face in the morning dew on May 1 to ensure remaining beautiful for another year. Now *that* is new year for me.

Re: Pagan families thread!

Hello! Dianic hearth witch here

I've been incredibly lazy these past couple of years about holidays. I felt accomplished dragging DH out of the house for a Yule fire this past year. DH is a millitant agnostic, though I would call him a "cultural Christian" at this point. I think it will be different when DD is old enough to understand holidays. I have a long distance coven I celebrate lunar passages with online when I can, otherwise I am solitary. I don't know a single pagan out here.

Great thread idea

Anybody have stealth magick ideas specifically for prosperity/getting a job? Since we're staying with DHs grandma, I need to be stealthy but DH has been laid off since November. We need to get out of here, grandma is stubborn but so am I, you can't beat a Taurus in the stubborn department.

Re: Pagan families thread!

Lately I have had wonderful luck with oils kaydove, no need to burn anything and it's subtle. I would mix prosperity herbs, and some things to remove obstacles in a blend, do a tiny bit of energy work over the top. Take a great bath/shower maybe a little salt scrub to cleanse your and get you ready, then apply the oil to your chakras as you get ready for your interview, with a touch up before your head into the interview. Simple and subtle, but I love to work with oils.
