The One, The Only: Rev. Carrie

Earth & Sky Tradition High Priestess, Mother, and Genuine Nerd. I lurk on Tumblr to answer questions and make an attempt at correcting the misinformation spread around the internet about Wicca and Paganism.

I feel really drawn to Apollo for my god. I have a question though, do you have to have a goddess? Or can you just have a god?

You don’t have to have patron deities at all if you don’t want them. My personal goddess changes frequently, but my love of Green Man has been constant in my 16 years of practice. Some of us need more alignment with the masculine side of energy than others, and that is an acceptable way to be.

Why do a lot of people spell the word “magic” with a K? Like magick?
I’m curious because I asked about this on another site and was told only newb witches and fluffy bunnies spell it that way. But now it seems a lot of people have taken to that spelling. Personally, I prefer…

I stand chastened and rebuked, good sir. Thank you for the correction.

The Old and Middle English spelling is ‘Magick’. That’s why it’s used. These days there is a need to differentiate David Copperfield magic from Witchcraft magick.

Life or Some Dramatization of it

I’ve been absentee from my blog for close to a month because there have been some upheavals in my life that have crushed my will to teach, continue working at my job, lead my coven, or even continue being a priestess.

I am still here, still at my job, still leading my coven, and I’m still a priestess. I made vows to my Goddess, and I don’t plan on breaking that oath anytime soon. My life is not dictated by a few people that would see subdued. Life is what you make of it, and only you can allow yourself to carry on trudging your way through self pity, or you can lift up your head and disregard the assholes.

I love going through your blog just to read the advice you give to random strangers online, not because I need advice on anything specific, but you're so good natured and kind, I hope that I can learn to be more tolerant and positive from you. You're the kind of person I aspire to be ❤ ❤ ❤

I don’t want to humble brag, but thank you so much for your kind words. I do try to help out others the best I can, and I do hope that someone is getting something out of it. Tolerance comes when you realize that just about everyone has a crappy life. To quote Plato: “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.” It costs nothing to be polite, and it takes no effort to be kind. I know so many people that are hateful for the sake of being hateful because they think it makes them feel better. Being ugly to people only hurts them, and does nothing to boost yourself. I mostly picture everyone I give advice to as my child, and I think “how would I want a perfect stranger to treat my child?”

Brightest of blessings on your journey, and may the peace of the Goddess be ever in your heart.

Hey it's Amanda, I lost my phone lol and I couldn't think of any other way to contact you I was wondering if I could attend tomorrow night?
