Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virile. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.– Monica Sjoo, The Great Cosmic Mother: Rediscovering the Religion of the Earth (via oiseauperdu)

I’m offering tarot readings for a dollar right now, my only rule is no questions based off “does this person love me” or “will I find love again”.
My deck does not answer those kinds of questions.
here a woman starts picking the ripe chameleons off of the chameleon tree
So…some of my ceramic work from freshman year got into an art conference in Davis this weekend- and I thought it would be a great networking opportunity, so despite how fucking scary it is, I’M GONNA DO THE THING.
I can still hear my bank account sobbing from the reg fees.
I’m also going to do a glamor to bring with me, because I’m terrible with people and need any kind of boost I can get. But I can’t decide on what I need- is it luck, or confidence? Or should I just make myself seem desirable to talk to, so I have as much opportunity as possible to meet the right people? Any suggestions, my lovelies?
I swear if anyone on here tries to play the game of “That isn’t apart of the lore, or how my beliefs go”. Its not going to be pretty. This is totally and 100% my experience. You have been warned my loves.
When I had first met him, He appeared to me as a woman in outside appearance (not so much in the pants area, I’ll get to that in a moment), very lovely. It was a dream, for a moment I saw blood red, deep long nails, black hair slicked back that quickly changed to a white blond, long and flowing. I smelled blood, fury, and tasted a sweet tea, the energy was intense, warm and thick almost stifling. I woke up literally sweating in my bed, in the middle of winter, with my window next to my bed wide open, it was ten degrees below freezing.
(I will admit, it wasn’t an unenjoyable experience but a shocking one)
Goddess, Vee, this is beautiful
I’ve had the worst allergies right on the tail of a cold, and I really really didn’t want to get up this morning, so I sleep through the alarm and just as I’m about to fall back asleep, someone touches my ear- like gently grabs it and is like Teeeeess get up get up Tesssssss
This is after my roommate had left, so my question is- thank you kind stranger, I made it to class, but WHO THE WHAT
Anonymous asked: really?! what did it look like?!
Kinda like bubbles, little eyes and a small smile.
…..So if you didn’t drink it, what did you do?
(And why is that phrased as if drinking a little fae would be an option..)
Anonymous asked: Greetings, this is Alexandra of Artemis Archery Asheville. I did a search for my business and saw your post. I want to tell you I am an archery business and do women's groups. My women's groups focus on archery, wilderness skills and women's empowerment. We are definitely not a cult. We are not a Dianic order. Artemis Archery in California IS. You seem to have mixed us up. If you could take the word cult off of your post I would appreciate it. I feel it will turn people away. Thanks.
Okay, after a quick look around, it looks like the post that you’re referring to (and the cult reference) was actually a mistake by an anon on Natural-magics blog (I hadn’t tagged my reblog of that post at all, sorry). You’ll have to talk to Natural-magics about their tagging. Hope that helped, good luck with your ventures
Almost drank a fae that was in my sprite. :|
I think it liked the bubbles.
