Tinybubbles, are you familar with the Irish poet WB Yeats?

He had a long running interest in paganism and was involved in the 'theosophy' movement of the early twentieth century.

That's fair enough. In fairness it was probably the bible-thumper thing that started the thread getting de-railed and as Tinybubbles admitted it was a poor choice of expression.

Peace

Get the point?
Yes.

Do you like Tori Amos or Meat Cake comics?

Can you describe one simple spell you've done that's worked?

And, on what occasions do you go sky-clad, if any...?

Influences Occult and otherwise:

Most definitely yes to Tori Amos and Yeats! I became interested in Yeats through the ceremonial magic connection (Golden Dawn, O.T.O.) via Alister Crowley because we share the same birthdate...Manson? Well, the cartoon that was posted made me laugh. I don't really know much about him. Don't know Meat Cake either...should I? I really like Neil Gaiman, and lots of vertigo titles and x-men remains an old standby. Very nice since Jos Whedon took over the writing...
Sky-clad? I get cold very easily so not very much. But if it gets hot enough I suppose. I do not find that essential to my practice. There seems to be alot of emphasis on being naked during rites in traditions that are fertility based. My tradition is an ecstatic one. Although there are, of course, some rites you just can't do with clothes on!

foray
Okay. I was looking for a new apartment in a really tight market. Instead of just taking whatever I could get I did a spell to get exactly what I wanted. I did a cleansing ritual and grounded my energy to make sure I would be clear about what I wanted (no outside influences) then asked the Gods that I have personal relationships with to be present to help me. I might have lit a candle to acknowledge their presence. I sat with paper and pastels and in a light trance drew the place I wanted to move to. I put the picture on my altar and named it.
What is interesting is that what came up was a single home detailed with a rose bush to the right, a front door with 3 pane window, and a well to the left. And I was looking for an apartment in a city. But it was what I wanted if I really thought about it. I hated living in little spaces. So it did not really make sense until I got a call 3 days later from a woman looking for a roomate. In the very house I drew. well, rosebush, everything.

Depends on the day. Like most people
....So this thread has been fun. I think I like interference. I think I will stay around for a while. You all seem intellegent and funny at least!
However, I am getting a bit tired just talking about myself so unless there are any other emergency, have to have answered witch questions, I think I will take a break and see what else is going on around here. If anyone needs more witchy reading I suggest www.Witchvox.com for starters. They are a portal to all sorts of witchy things. Me? I just watched "U2 go home" last night with my good friend and 2 bottles of very good wine. I am much more in the mood to talk about my favourite band than witchcraft...Thanks again for the discussion, everyone. And apologies for my poor spelling. It's bad I know. Don't worry. You will get used to it....
-Jennifer

Sure, that's why I asked about Yeats. I read about the Crowley connection before, seemingly they were both involved in the same group but had a falling out and Yeats forced Crowley out of it.

I asked some Irish pagans on a discussion forum once about Crowley, they weren't fans of his. He seems to have been a controversial character to say the least. Yeats on the other hand lived a largely blameless life as far as I am aware and was even made an Irish senator by the government. He never fell foul of the Catholic Church unlike many Irish writers of the period. He seemed to have the knack of getting on with people plus he was a great, great poet.

Anyway I look forward to more discussions about Yeats, Crowley, etc, I'm quite interested in both of them

Me too. We should talk... Although a thread about Crowley might be a little much around here... innocent people might have their minds blown wide open!! I liked old Al, he was wierd, fallable and human, and occasionally brilliant. And his girlfriend never gets enough credit for being the one who actually channeled most of the Book of Law!

True, true. Although my understanding is even a lot of pagans don't like the guy much. Interesting figure but he did a lot of very questionable things in his life, from what I've read, seems to have treated a lot of people badly. But certainly an interesting figure all the same.
