A royal brew of pagan social issues and pagan socializing... and what shoes to wear while doing both.

Memories of Halloweens Gone By

Memories of Halloweens Gone By

Ah, Halloween. Our Wiccan friends celebrate it as Samhain. Many Pagans believe this is the time of year where the veil between the living and the dead is thinnest. I gotta say, that has been my experience. I feel a mighty pull by bonds to loved ones on the other side right about now. Always...

Images of Sweden and Norway

Sorry for the late post; I’m still in post-jet-lag-zombie phase. In honor of my ability to barely construct a coherent sentence, I’m going to give you what you probably really want anyway…PICTURES! Is Scandinavia the most beautiful place on Earth? Quite possibly, folks. Quite possibly.                 and  ...
The Princess and the "Book of Mormon"

The Princess and the “Book of Mormon”

♛ Spoiler Alert: I’ve tried to avoid spoilers here, but it’s not easy. Read at your own risk! ♛ I saw the musical the “Book of Mormon” last weekend. Prior to being offered a ticket, I was lukewarm about seeing this show even though it’s won lots of awards. I am a fan of “South Park” and...

Jax in the Land of her Ancestors

I’m going to Scandinavia!!! After all the chaos of this summer, TheScott and I decided to do something awesome. We plan to put in the paperwork to try adopting again sometime in 2014, so we decided to make it a big trip, the kind we hopefully won’t be able to take for a long time....
Herbal Remedies--St John's Wort

Herbal Remedies–St John’s Wort

Disclaimer: I am not in any way suggesting a medical course of action for anyone. I am not a doctor. I am writing about my personal experience. Like a lot of other Pagans, I’m not a huge fan of pharmaceuticals. Not that I never take them–sometimes that pulsing pain in my head just needs an...
Jax's Equinox Resolutions, 2013 Edition

Jax’s Equinox Resolutions, 2013 Edition

Ah, Autumn–my favorite time of year. As the weather turns cooler (or at least not-so-blisteringly-hot) and the breeze blows chill, it reminds me to clear the slate, make peace with the past and let go. At this time of year at what some Heathens call Winter Finding* , I have a tradition of creating resolutions...
Long Time No See! The Story Behind GG's Hiatus

Long Time No See! The Story Behind GG’s Hiatus

As Jax explained, our absence from the Realm was not planned. We both got slammed with life. My story is different than hers in most ways, but still involves loss and grief, and the self-discovery that accompanies upheaval. Courting a Princess As with most romances, my relationship with Mr. Awesome (whom I’ll call M here...
Long Time No See! The Story Behind Jax’s Hiatus

Long Time No See! The Story Behind Jax’s Hiatus

So…we disappeared unintentionally for about six months. Sorry about that. 😉 We figured it best to return to the Realm with explanations regarding where we’ve been. I, Jax, will start off this week and let GG do the same on Friday. Though things are still hectic, we intend to get back to Princessing–we’ve missed this...
Making Sense of Getting Sick Off of Perfectly Healthy Food

Making Sense of Getting Sick Off of Perfectly Healthy Food

Sorry about going MIA the last couple of weeks. My second book just released (Yaaaaay! *Blows noisemaker and strews confetti*) and I’ve been writing blog posts and answering interview questions and whatnot for that. But….I’m back! And I’m not talking about anything Pagan. (GG says I don’t have to apologize, but I’m going to anyway. Sorry!)...
This Princess is No Sleeping Beauty

This Princess is No Sleeping Beauty

My reference to this Princess is not an argument against being a passive heroine. Or that women should avoid being caught in “the male gaze”* and stay there. Or that ladies should not be in waiting for rescue by a prince. While it’s true I neither believe nor advocate being any of these things, I’m...
We Were Planting a Garden

We Were Planting a Garden

We were planting a garden together Not intentionally at first We scattered seeds about without thought or care for how they might grow But grow they did And soon our garden was beautiful, full of color and flora the likes neither of us had seen We laughed and let the garden run wild So lovely...
The Girls and I Visit a Hindu Ashram

The Girls and I Visit a Hindu Ashram

I know very little about Hinduism but interested in learning more.What I do know about Hinduism is that it share some roots with Heathenry. It is probable that the language and cultures of India stem from the same ancient civilization as European culture. The most accepted theory now is that a group known now as...
