Still around - this forum is just super quiet compared to some of the Christian based ones. Which is fine and all. :-) Been absent since I started working again - I'm on a computer all day and don't want to sit in front of one in the evenings. I'm totally down for connecting at the proverbial table!

Happy Friday Natalie!

And welcome back to the working world! I could totally understand not wanting to be on the computer if I sat at one all day as well. I noticed while reading through all the old post that participation seems to flow in waves - sometimes its really active and other times it sits dormant. It seems perfectly normal since most of our lives seem to move in the same motion.

Any plans for enjoying the full moon this weekend? I peeked at the weather report this morning and its supposed to be cloudy with rain and snow in my neck of the woods. I am a bit of a cold weather wimp, so I may have to enjoy the Mother Moon from my living room window (if she even peeks out).

I don't have any plans, but if it's nice I might go sit in the yard for a bit. Burn some incense. That kind of thing.

And yeah, waves are totally a thing. :-)

The moon did not show its beautiful face last night due to clouds. That being said, it was 40 degrees and the rain/snow that was predicted held off, so I did sit outside on my bench by the chicken coop for a bit. The coop door was still open and my two most social hens kept me company by roosting in the doorway. =)

(((HUGS))) to all my dear sisters!

The sun finally broke through the clouds this morning! Woohoo! Between the heavy snowfall that's been melting fast and several days of rain, we are having some flooding, mudslide, and washout issues up in the tip-top of Idaho, as well as across the border in Washington (where my hubby works and children go to school). Hopefully things will dry out and stabilize a bit today. I know the weather has been acting up in other parts of the country too - how is the weather in your area?

The glories of spring are visiting northern UT. Always makes me want to grub in the dirt except I have bad knees and a gray thumb. (not quite black, I spent $5 on a tomato plant last year, took good care of it, and got 2 tomatoes the size of a baby fist)

Wishing you all a splendid Ostara!

And Natalie, I have never heard the term "Gray thumb" - it's cute. =)

I keep hoping by posting often I can relight the fire in this thread... unfortunately, I am not very great with these sorts of things and am not entirely sure what to post. =) Anyhow, enjoy the full moon tonight, my dears!

Oh, it was beautiful here in northern UT last night. First full moon in several months that wasn't obscured by clouds/rain/snow. Clear and bright and casting shadows! Absolutely glorious. Trying to prep some Beltane possibilities...it gets "Spring-y" outside and I wanna dance a Maypole and smell the blooming flowers (and wear them in my hair!) and lay in the grass and find pictures in the clouds.

Happy ostra to all. Clouds cleared off enough to see the moon last night but it looks like they are beginning to move in again so probably not much of a view tonight. I am so ready for some warmer weather. It has been a long winter in Eastern WA this year.

Blessings, Sheri

I too would like to get this group engaged more.I agree Randi, I too work on a computer all day and am not always wanting to get back on in the evening.

So I question for all:Do you have issues with neighbors regarding your path? I live in suburbs and have actually had parents tell their children not to talk to me. I am not overly wiccan, mostly garden and am outdoors. A neighbor who was pet sitting for me, was nosy (I have a spiritual room) and told neighbors. Witch, Witch......

Julie... That is so sad to hear. I am a Christian but I love my Wicca friends just the same and do not judge them and they do not judge me. I preach only love and acceptance. Not completely sure why the stigma with your path. I would have tea with you and play backgammon and wear big hats. BUT I don't think I should dance with you or Natalie under a pink moon or any other moon
(Hushed voice... I am kinda clumsy, hence Tumbleweed)

Bright Blessings

Well, it was cloudy last night, so I am glad I enjoyed the moon the night before.

In regard to your question, Julie: First of all, great way to get us all engaged and talking. =) Second of all, shame on that person for snooping (and telling)! I am sorry you have to deal with an unsupportive neighborhood, but am glad you have found a "safe place" in this forum. (((HUGS))) As for my answer, I don't think anyone outside our close friends and family has a clue. we live in a pretty remote area where everyone keeps to themselves and only two people can see our property from theirs. We wave when we see each other, but I don't really think they have any idea of anything that goes on here (which is nothing dramatic or noteworthy). As for our community, where our children go to school and we work, I am fairly certain no one there is the wiser either. We were quirky before I fully committed to this path, and I suppose some may suspect, but it has never been discussed. However, if someone were in my house, particularly browsing my bookshelf, I think it would be obvious.

All that being said, my husband is currently looking for jobs in larger cities, which means potentially less seclusion when we move. I try not to think about it and stay positive, but I have to say thoughts similar to the situation you mentioned have certainly caused some anxiety.

Thanks for the support Nancy and Randi. Oh and Nancy, dancing under the full moon is an incrediby open, dancing technique is not judged. And to quote a much loved movie, "clothing is purely optional, as you well remember #128512;"-Practical magic

One of the many reasons I want to move to rural Maine, from Massachusetts is to have more space and no nosey neighbors. Outdoor ritual and dancing!

Julie That is one of my favorite movies. Midnight margaritas and all. Love the Aunts. I am the Diane West auntie and my BFF is the Stockard Channing Auntie.

Isn't it grand! My Granny had an herb garden like that. She never admitted to me during her life but I believe she followed a different path. She had a remedy for everything.

A little explanation: my clumsiness has caused me several trips to the ER. I love having fun but have issues with safety rules and looking where I am going. Last big trip I was hiking alone with my dogs and fell down a small cliff and broke my tibia below my knee. Had to crawl out of the woods on my hands and knees flanked by my two bestest friends. Some other hikers came along and offered help. That night I came home from the ER with a 40 ton hot pink cast from my foot all the way up my leg.

Just hand me a tamborine or rhythm bones and me and my health insurance provider will be happy.

Oh my goodness, Nancy - how scary! Good thing your furry companions were with you. I have weak ankles and have twisted them on more hiking trails then I would like to admit, but fortunately have never done it without another person with me. I am not very easy to offend, so it has become a bit of a joke in our family when we come to very uneven places in trails or lots of loose rock - "Randi/mom, the trail is a bit hazardous, please don't twist an ankle. We don't want to have to carry you back to the Jeep". =)

Not a lot of dancing here, due to bad knees. Wish I could. As for out - I thankfully haven't had any issues, as I'm out and fairly open about it all. The no issues could be many reasons, even here in UT, up to and including my gothy look. I think I intimidate people, which is weird to me, but whatevs. 75 here today and windy - happy spring!
