Preparing for Ostara!

There’s no better place to get everything you need for your Ostara celebration than Dark Passions Events’ Ostara’s Altar event. I am loving so many things here there will probably be more than one blog post featuring items from this event: this post will show only a few of them! Ostara’s Altar opens today!

Lumae comes back from a hiatus with this beautiful Neoma Catwa applier!

Lumae comes back from a hiatus with this beautiful Neoma Catwa applier! I particularly love the lavender shades of makeup on this applier, and of course Lumiya Rae‘s painting and shading is always so beautiful. Just look at those lips! Look at those beautiful eye sockets! The eyes themselves are ones I’ve been in for a couple of weeks now: S0ng finally made Omega eye appliers, and I’ve been taking advantage of the chance to wear these lovely, liquid eyes. The hair is from Kuni, called Thaiza, and you can get it at the Sense Event.

Of course, there’s more to Ostara prep than just the right face! You also have to have amazing clothes.

Of course, there’s more to Ostara preparation than just the right face. You also have to have amazing clothes, and these don’t disappoint. They’re from Dreaming Thicket. The Butterfly top is their hunt gift for the event, and the Lotus skirt is available for sale at the event. The top comes in a load of great colours, all of which go nicely with the skirt.

Behind me you can see a bit of the beautiful altar made by Moondrops. The Ostara Altar set has everything you need for a beautiful altar, all in spring colours. It includes an athame, wand, pentacle, rose candle, water bowl, a tarot card box, a major arcana tarot card spread, and of course the altar itself and a lovely altar cloth.

As a practicing pagan, I can never have enough cauldrons!

As a practicing pagan, I can never have enough cauldrons! This one, made by Deadly Nightshade, is the Spring Cauldron in lilac. The cauldron comes in a bunch of other colours, as well.

Whew! All this setup can make a girl tired.

Whew! All this setup can make a girl tired– you have no idea how hard it was to climb up that ladder and hang this beautiful Wheel Calendar from Candle and Cauldron — and I’m not close to done! There’s lots of springtime things coming to Awenia very soon!

But you? Need to head out to Ostara’s Altar. You’ll be glad you did. 🙂

We Are All The Story

Alone in the woods…

Alone in the woods, I am looking for something. I don’t know what I am looking for, but that’s not unusual.

I hear a noise, not far away, and I turn to see

Another version of me, telling stories to animals.

Another version of me, telling stories to animals. Her/my voice rises and falls, and they are rapt. Dragons flutter round the edges, bunnies cavort; even the squirrels have her/my attention.

So why am I here?

So why am I here, when I am also there? And what does she have that I don’t have? The forest grows dark around me, and I fear I will be lost.

“The forest grew darker around her, and she feared she would be lost,”

“The forest grew darker around her, and she feared she would be lost,” says the storyteller/me. And suddenly I realise, not what she has the I haven’t, but what I have that she hasn’t.

She is telling a story about me.

She is telling a story about me. I am the writer and I am also the protagonist. I am the captive and the captivator. I am the creatrix and the created.

“We are all the story,” she says.

“We are all the story,” she says. “We are all the beginning and the end of drama, quest, beginnings, middles, and ends. We are all of it.

I am all of it.

You are all of it.

Build your story. Star in it. Create yourself as you create something else. What more magic can there be?
