Grown Little Girl, Grow Little Girl by Chasity Jones Selenga —

I have newly found myself a wife and in the throes of motherhood. In many feminist circles, I have encountered anti-family and anti-wifehood sentiments.

Dear Friends, Breath Offering

Well, after over an hour trying to link GSuite, the platform I use for video, to WordPress, with no luck, I uploaded today’s Imbolc Guided Breath Offering to the Wild Women Wisdom Facebook page. Maybe it’s the Void of Course, maybe it’s the stagnancy of stalled Quickening of Merc in Retro, for sure it’s my…

Shadow Work and Devotion. At Lunar Imbolc.

Devotion. It’s a wrought word, full with personal associations, and so I write it tenderly, for any and all that have been injured by traditions that forced or coerced dogma and rigidity, those direct or indirect punches to the developing, authentic soul.

Happy Traditional to Lunar Imbolc: Letting the Tide move you.

Happy traditional Imbolc, friends. I woke up today with a mist in my heart, the kind only satiated by the reliable rhythm languages, the silences and flurries of Mama Earth. It felt like longing, and when I leaned into the feeling I saw myself on a drive around the Tall Pines, this Place where I…

These are mighty mighty times, dear friends. If you have your feet on the street you knew this day would come. Shout Black Feminists 12-13 Twitter underground. Dear birds singing song of change. Riot grl coming through me to write me a thesis to get me here, to follow through with my head and boots…

Winter Solstice. Animism, Ancestor Weekend, the sweet call of Yule Tide.

Backyard just before dawn Wednesday morning, the outlines of bare branches seem almost purple against a heavy gray sky. To the eye all else appears barren, but the intuitive eyes, the heart eyes, the soul eyes–a ripeness of movement motions the air. Some Solstices are deeply still, some you feel the quickening so ripe it…
