Organic Choices

calf

Merry meet all,

I keep harping about organic food and herbs. There is a reason for it. I am a devout animal lover. I can’t stand animal cruelty. I have been researching the way that chickens, cows and pigs and even our dear friends bees are treated. All I can say is that it is mostly so inhumane I can’t believe it is for real.

I am now strongly considering becoming a vegetarian. I live on a budget. But there is a good reason why I want to be a vegetarian. If an animal suffers in those torture chambers and I eat the meat, I take that energy into myself. I absorb the torture and suffering the cow, chicken or pig endured. Why would a person do that to themselves? Why should the animal endure such cruelty? How can those people who chop, mutilate and harm these animals live with themselves? I couldn’t live with myself.

I am now making a choice. I will starve before I will contribute to the cruelty those animals suffer. They are forced to suffer. They are not given a choice. We have a choice. We should make the right choice. We can make a choice.

Bees are now facing near extinction. Cows, chickens and pigs are force fed growth hormones and confined into filthy unsanitary cramped cages day in and day out. Their bodies are grossly deformed due to the chemicals they are injected with. Their bodies are swollen and red and sore. Who wants to live like that? Who wants to be forced to feel that way?

I have already demonstrated my passion for helping the bees in my herb garden. I shall extend that same passion to the other areas of my life. There are alternatives to non organic processed meat such as fruit, vegetables, beans and grains. I have already made several awesome meals with black beans and quinoa. It is also easier on a person’s budget. The beans, grains and veggies are healthier and are less likely the result of an animal suffering. I want to help end the madness. I never eat at Mcdonalds. If enough people get together and support local ethical farmers and organic food, then they help end the cruelty. There is a problem though: the government and the corporations count on people being dumbed down. Those are the customers or consumers today that they count on. But I have been to the local Seaport farmers market on a busy day it teems with people who are too eager to buy locally sourced fresh organic meats, cheeses and veggies.

As long as there is demand for the organic foods, then it will be produced. That demand must be maintained and prolonged forever. What if our local supermarkets carried only organic food? I hope one day that is a reality. 

Blessed Be, Lady Spiderwitch )O(

Penny, my animal familiar

Penny

Merry meet all,

I have adopted a cat! Her name is Penny. She is a five years old Norwegian Forest Cat. She is beautiful, as you can see from the picture above. She loves to climb on top of the fridge and nap there. She sun worships, sleeps, and knocks things down at night. She didn’t hiss once when she came in here or even hide. She just made herself right at home. 

Penny used to live with an elderly lady who couldn’t take her with  her when she moved into a special home. So a now married couple took her in only the Rottweiler terrorized Penny. Let us all hope this is Penny’s furever home. She likes wet and dry cat food, cuddles, and exploring. She came with a scratching post and a litter box. 

I still love my other animal familiar Magic, my guinea pig. But Penny doesn’t mind Magic. She can smell that he was first here. I am not going to let him run around unsupervised around here, but he does need some exercise. I need to work that out. I just gave Magic a big cuddle on my lap. He counts, too. 

Animals are amazing. Now that’s two animal familiars. Lucky me!

Blessed Be, Lady Spiderwitch )O(

Ostara Ritual

Merry Meet All,

Last night I attended the Ostara Ritual at the UU church. It was so much fun. I arrived a little late and entered the room where they were holding the ritual. I heard drumming, I love the drumming, and people were dressed up and dancing or milling around in a wide circle. The altar was beautiful. Afterwards, as I missed most of the ritual, we all shared in the feast. Much to my surprise, the High Priestess had brought her live bunny with her. The bunny was beyond adorable. He was black and white. I cuddled him for a moment. Almost everyone cuddled that bunny. The evening was a lot of fun and I saw some familiar faces and met some new ones. The food was delicious.

Earlier that day, when some members of the coven were at a local metaphysical store gathering supplies for the ritual, it was shared that there would be a live bunny at the ritual. People wondered if the bunny would be sacrificed! I can tell you that that bunny was never harmed and just so much loved. We would never dream of harming any animal or child. Kids run amok all over the place. The fact that people think that about us is astounding. Thanks to the Church and media, they make us look evil. I have a pet guinea pig and in only four days, he is comfortable with cuddling.

When I left the ritual with a friend, the night sky was bedecked with stars. I wish I knew my astrology better. I had a great time and can’t wait for the next ritual.

Blessed Be,
Lady Spiderwitch )O(
