Dark of the Moon

Today, June 12th is the New Moon or Dark Moon. This is a time for beginning spells that you want to come to fruition on the next Full Moon which is going to be June 26th at 7:30am. This months Dark moon is going to at 7:15am, Moon will be Void of Course at 7:35pm till 9:50pm so avoid any working during that time.

While reading all the blogs I have chosen to follow I found a great poem on http://ping.fm/W1r8c

Dark of the moon, new beginnings.
Dark of the moon, plant a seed tonight.
Dark of the moon, what we envision,
Will come to be, in the Full Moon’s light.

Truly a wonderful little chant.

May all your workings bear fruit.
Blessed Be


The Beginning

This blogging thing is not as easy as I thought it would be. I am reading a book right now on starting a blog. Kind of funny. There is a lot of good information in it.

I guess I should tell a little bit about myself.
I will only be using my craft name on my posts. It is Cainwyne Haef Kemelis. I was born over 40 years ago in the great state of Colorado. I was raised in the Lutheran religion but during my teenage years I stopped attending church. Thus began my journey on my path with the gods and goddesses, even though I didn’t know it at the time. I spent some time in the military but the fact that I am gay didn’t sit well with some and I was asked to leave. I was a bit disappointed in that but I moved on. I returned to Colorado and began to live my new life.
I have loved and lost many times in my life. I have lost lovers to illness and family to time.
My journey along the path revved up in 2006 when I picked up my first book at a Borders Bookstore. It was Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart. I devoured it. It was funny while I was reading it I would think ‘that is me’. I soon enrolled in The Grey School of Wizardry. I was having the time of my life. Everything was making sense to me. I began to explore my spirituality and what the path had to offer. While working on my classes and after a talk with a wise witch friend of mine I came to the realization that the moniker of ‘wizard’ was not who I was. I was pagan, more to the point I was a witch and always have been.
So now I am a witch and proud of it. Right now I am with a coven here in Colorado and I am working on my Year and A day studies. I LOVE it.

I think that is a good bit of stuff. Until my next post…..

Merry We Meet,
Merry We Part,
And Merry We Meet Again.

Brightest Blessings.
