A little bit late since the sun has already set here, BUT anyway, Blessed Midsummer/Litha/Summer Solstice everyone!

~ May the longtime sun shine upon you
All love surround you
And the pure, pure light that’s within you
Guide your way home ~~~

Again!

Something pensive. Those stones are two I carry on me very often – hematite, for grounding, and quantum quattro silica, for a certain calm.

May the Lady and the Lord reunite in blessing for all ❤

(Also, double plus bonus points to myself for a Goddess and God battle-wedding for Beltane. Yes yes.)

Welcome Spring! May She arrive soon, in peace and blessings for all.

(The year of Orcish sabbat sketches begins!)

~ Welcome, Spring. Welcome, Maiden. Wake up soon. ~

Also, because I somehow missed posting the Gnomish Imbolc AND Yule ones here (sorry!), here’s all of the Gnome ones from last year.

A long overdue addition to these affirmation cards I use every morning, which of course all have faeries on them. This one has a message about my commitment to Faerie, and I just wanted to share the illustration because I feel like the way the wing-spirals come together behind her upraised arms is really, really appropriate. 

Also, Blessed Imbolc ❤ A sketch to honor the day will be up shortly.

So earlier this year I started working with Hathor (the Egyptian Goddess of love, beauty, and creation) as one of my Patron Goddesses.

She actually Called me MANY years ago, before I was able to answer such a direct spiritual communion. I feel blessed that She has waited for me so patiently and I’m happy to be working with Her now.

As to how/what She relates (to) in my life, She seems to be governing my sobriety and my recent veganism.
