New Moon Banishing Ritual

I bet a story idea is in here somewhere….

Culture Of The Craft

Each month brings it’s own set of challenges and rewards. Some months, the good outweighs the bad, and some months it doesn’t.
If this has been a shit month for you- maybe a banishing ritual would be good…but before you start thinking I’m going to include a spell for you- I’m going to tell you, I’m not.

Friendships – Why do we need them?

Ginger Ocean


I’ve just come back from a lovely coffee date with a girlfriend, a first time mother of a gorgeous little girl. We catch up two or three times a month over a warm brew, and every time we’re both bursting to the brim with exciting new information to tell each other – health tips, great podcasts or small town gossip. As I sit here today reflecting on our conversation I can’t help but feel content, and grateful, for long lasting friendships.

I can honestly say that all of my friendships have stood the test of time, and I’m pretty proud of it. I’ve known two of my closest friends since around Grade 4, having gone through all the fun teenage things like pimples, boys and silly fights together.
