You need at least thirteen stones (not big rocks) which are about the same size and shape.You’re going to put them in a bag you can shake up a bit so you don’t want to have something too heavy or clunky to carry around. If you like tiny and micro you could work with little pebbles (pessomancy) but you need to be able to tell one from the other.… Read the rest
I fixed the formatting but the capitalization is not mine. Some things are well meant but not well written in the practical sense. I found this on Facebook and wanted to keep it around for myself.

I haven’t written much about Wicca and Paganism for awhile. I got settled in and knew my own thoughts and just left it at that. But, I feel good to be posting ideas and sharing them.

My Dad is quite likely going to die soon, any day now. Don’t worry about sending sympathy, condolences or anything of that sort. You don’t know him. For me it’s a lot more personal.

For ancient cultures, the hearth was the center of the home.
It was the provider of warmth through the harsh winter months,

gathering place of the household.
Fire has a special attraction for all of us.
