Goddess Cookies

Nom nom nom nom! I do love a good cookie! I realized today that since cookies can be molded into different shapes, it would be a good idea to cut them into different shapes representing the Goddess. And hey, why not represent the God as well! I then thought it would be a good idea to have the symbols to use as "patterns" for the cutting. I wonder if anyone makes wiccan cookie cutters? Probably! Here are some symbols you may want to use for cookie cutting projects. I will post pictures if I actually get around to doing this. For now I'm just providing fun ideas to get kids and yourself creative. Why not use frosting to draw pentacles, stars, moons, or suns?

Goddess & God: What Defines Them?

I often get into a delema about this subject. I often see in correspondences and other things in Wicca that Wiccans identify certain things with the God and other things with the Goddess. For instance, We have the color gold as a symbol for God and silver for the Goddess. But why? What truly defines them? I know that the moon and Goddess are often matched together and that is why silver is the color of choice. I often find that people often define God and Goddess so specifically for correspondences to crystals, colors, and even the elements themselves. Such as the Goddess ruling over moonstone, silver, blue, and purple, and water. In my opinion sometimes charts can be counterproductive with magic. It is about how you feel about something. I know many people say that the Goddess rules over water and air. I do see that but there are also some instances where you can see her in earth and fire too. It all depends of what personally reminds you of your personal God or Goddess. Only YOU, in my opinion, can truly define what you feel represents what. Symbols can often be changed and what is important is to do what feels right for you.

Here is just an example of what I'm talking about when I say charts:

No offense to the website owner. This is the generally accepted version of what feminine and masculine represent. I personally belief that the Goddess and God can't be bottled up and generalized in a way that people agree upon. People have many different versions of God and Goddess.

I'm probably not making any sense. Feel free to correct me or add how you view the God and Goddess as a comment. Here endeth the ramble!

Lisa Kelly: Home and the Heartland

I really love this song and with the season it seems appropriate right now. It is very lighthearted and about home which is hopefully where everyone will be heading for Thanksgiving. Lisa Kelly is part of Celtic Woman. I love celtic music and Ireland is the one location I would love to see in this lifetime. Anyway here's the song.

Thankgiving On It's Way!

I love Thanksgiving. I love it because it is a holiday about family and loving one another despite our difficulties. It is also a holiday about taking a slice of humble pie. Everyone enjoys the feast before them and is thankful that they have everything they could possibly need. I think this holiday is majorly overlooked and so are the people working to make it possible. We all should thank the people who are rushing in the kitchen to make everything perfect (not just now but all year round). We often take for granted that these not so simple tasks get done. To make this time of year a little less stressful for the people trying to pull it off, I will be posting some recipes, links, crafts, and anything else I can think of. If anyone has any requests for something they need then I will take them. Let me search out and come up with ideas for you.

A family stands around the table giving thanks for their Thanksgiving Dinner.

Just a few quotes (The last one made me laugh):

He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
~J.A. Shedd

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.  ~Thornton Wilder

An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.  ~Irv Kupcinet

No Power on Samhain.

I have to say that the little plans I had did not pan out with the stormy weather. We lost power and only got it back recently. I am sorry if you have felt my absence. I promise to make up for it. With other news, I would like to remind people that there is a chat box on my blog. You can leave messages there for me to see. I will respond there if I see it. I also changed the title image of the blog. Do you like it? The center image on the title (also shown below) is so lovely. I just wish I could jump into this quaint little home.
