With Ostara quickly coming up on us, I thought I would write a brief overview about this holiday. First, let me say that I personally found the change from the standard holidays to the pagan ones was the hardest part of the transition of my faith. I was always pagan and just did not know it.
The Cosmic Separation
The Cosmic Separation was written by the great philosopher Plato in his work “The Symposium”. A tale of how, at the dawn of creation, human beings were made with two faces, four arms and four legs. The Gods feared they would be overpowered by these humans. Seeing this dilemma, Zeus split each human in half and sent them in separate directions, creating twin flames. Two halves eternally searching for each other. This is the origin of the Roman God Juno, opposite sides never able to look upon, but eternally aware of each other.

Mystic Echoes Review
Greetings. As many of you may know, I love incense, baths, candles, etc. I think a lot of us do. My roomie jokes that men put condiments on their food and women put them in our bath. Though I think he needs to stay out of my bathroom, he is kinda right. Needless to say, I was ecstatic when I received the trades with Charity at Mystic Echoes. Once I got the package open, I could smell the herbs!
Tod Brown at Wizard Works North
Let me just say “wow!” Mr. Tod Brown, the Owner of Wizard Works North, did a tarot reading for me and it was awesome and just what I needed! I would and have recommended him to anyone. He is a very lovely and down-to-earth man. He is not a ‘sugar-coater’ and that makes all the difference to me when it comes to this kind of thing.
