Prompt: Divination


Divination can come in many shapes. When doing divination of any sort, where do you feel the information is coming from? How is it reaching you? Do you consider the tools you use sacred, or are they merely a form of receiving a message? Are there people who are not good candidates for receiving divination services? What are your thoughts on the mechanics of divination?
Enjoy!

Blessed be,

Prompt: Matrons and Patrons


Many Wiccans feel a connection to a God or Goddess and choose to work with them exclusively as a Matron or Patron deity. Do you work with a Matron or Patron? How did you find yourself working with them?
If you don't work with any specific deities, do you feel you need to choose, or is working with general terms like God and Goddess just fine?
Enjoy!

Blessed be,

Prompt: What color is your magick?


Note: I hope you all had a great holiday! We're back from the holiday break, and ready to go.

Today's prompt is about the "color" of your magick. We have ALL heard the discussions...white magick vs. grey magick vs. black magick...does magick have a color? What do the colors mean? If white is "good" then is black "bad"? What constitutes "bad"? Is the whole argument invalid? Doesn't the practitioner determine if the magick being worked is good or bad? If so, then is magick "neutral"? So many angles. Today's prompt is a bit of a heavy one. Enjoy!

Blessed be,

Prompt: Labels


In this day and age, we have names for everything. Wicca is no exception to this. What magickal labels do you give yourself? For example, I am an eclectic, Wiccan, Witch. What do your call yourself? A Wiccan? A Witch? Pagan? What makes one a Wiccan and not a Witch? Or in order to truly understand how magick and force of will works...are you automatically a Witch as well, even though you may not cast circles? Where do we draw the lines with the labels? Why have you chosen the labels you claim?
Enjoy!

Blessed be,

Prompt: Charging for magickal services



Today's prompt is a bit of a touchy one...do you think it's right to charge for magickal services? If yes, why? Which services? All of them? If not, why do you feel that way? If you don't believe it's right to charge, how about a barter or a trade of services rather than currency? What defines an equal trade?
Enjoy everyone!

Blessed be,
Ivy

Prompt: Holidays



Celebrating the holidays can be tough enough, but adding on religious differences can make it even harder. How do you balance your religious path and holidays with those under the same roof as you? If you're not of the same faith(s), do you celebrate all holidays? Do both together on a common ground?
Today's prompt is all about respecting each other's religious paths while honoring our holy days and how we do it.
Enjoy!

Blessed be,
