Happy fall!

Intimate Fire's equinox ritual rocked tonight. We weren't expecting great attendance, as we're still figuring out the whole self-promotion thing - but we had sixteen people show up!

Had wonderful conversations after with some of the attendees, who ranged from the magickally experienced in other traditions to those who had never seen anything like this before. It seems Everett and environs has the makings of a fantastic magickal community!

The ritual, for those who are interested, is online here.

Aiden slept through the whole thing :)

I drew this oracle:
Do good unto others for its own sake, not for reward, not for gratitude from them, not for sympathy. If thou art generous, thou wilt not long for thine ears to be tickled by expressions of gratitude.
--Liber Librae, verse 11

Interesting. But not, I suppose, inapplicable to my new work as a mother.

I have been working on taking something to heart as a teacher that I think needs to apply to parenting as well: S. T. I. P.

Stop Taking It Personally.

So far the most out of control and furious I've become at my daughter is when I've let her push all my buttons. She wanted a reaction and got one. Yesterday, while sick, she was being extra cranky, impatient, whiny, and other not-so-nice characteristics. I made the conscious choice to let that roll off, find alternate solutions, and get through smoothly. I know Aiden is small now, but he will push you and Andrei because he can, and he wants to see a reaction. It will take time, but I think this may help. :-)
