The joys of being on a spiritual path. I have always labeled myself as a witch or a person of the craft,I have never felt comfortable with paganism,or wicca and for the most part I never celebrate the pagan holiday's,I can never follow the moon correctly (I have three apps for it lol). I practice magick when it is needed in my life. I am a Animist, always have been just never knew the correct terminology for the belief. Animism is a umbrella with many if not all religions under it,it all depends on the persons personal idealism with their path, and their own god(s). Inbox is always open to have a respectful conversations ☺

Did you know this about rape?
Sex without consent is rape. It’s as simple as that.
But myths and gender stereotypes related to rape and consent are widespread in our societies, including in court rooms.
In fact, in Europe alone, only 8 countries have laws that define rape as sex without consent. But courageous women across the region are fighting to change this.
Knowledge is power, also when it comes to fighting rape. So, here are five true statements about rape.
1. The majority of rapes are committed by people known to the victim.
A common assumption is that rapes are mostly committed by strangers. But in fact, the majority of rapes are committed by someone known to the victim. Perpetrators can be a friend, a colleague, a family member, partner or ex-partner. The ‘stranger myth’ sends the wrong message that a sexual assault committed by someone known to the victim is not rape. An alarming 11 percent of respondents to a 2016 survey on attitudes on gender-based violence in the EU expressed a view that to force sex with an intimate partner should not be illegal.
2. Often, victims of rape do not physically resist.
There should be no assumption, in law or in practice, that a person gives consent because they have not physically resisted. Just because a woman doesn’t have visible injuries, didn’t’ say NO or did not show resistance, doesn’t mean she was not raped. Despite the expectation that a “model” rape victim will fight the attacker back, freezing when confronted with a sexual attack has been recognized as a common physiological and psychological response, leaving the victim unable to oppose the assault, often to the point of immobility. For example, a 2017 Swedish clinical study found that 70 percent of the 298 women rape survivors assessed, experienced “involuntary paralysis” during the assault.
Luna Piena in Scorpione della Coppia. Il Matrimonio Alchemico e la Benedizione del Grembo. Questa è l'energia che ha accompagnato questa serata di Danze Sacre, in cui il Divino Femminile in tutte le sue forme e archetipi si è manifestato attraverso le Danzatrici nel cuore dei Presenti, Uomini e Donne che hanno desiderato condividere con noi questo momento. Io ho interpretato Freya, la Dea guerriera dei Vichinghi, Madre Amorevole, e Maga in connessione con la Fertilità e magia della Natura. Freya è anche la Dea dalle Lacrime Oro, simbolo di Resilienza Femminile e rispetto verso se stessa.
Ho condiviso questo momento con la mia meravigliosa figlia maggiore Viola, che ha letto l'Invicazione a Freya, e che mi sostiene e accompagna sempre in tutte le mie forme artistiche. Grazie piccolina, con Diana siete la Luce della mia Vita.

Meet the faces of the suits 🦢 🦢 🦢
Swans are the face of Cups. They are the realm of fluid emotions and relationships. As an element cups represents water the same that our graceful swans glide on. They are everything under the surface, the feelings we keep inside and the ones we express. 🐝 🐝 🐝
Bees are the face of Swords. These spiky misunderstood insects depict the double edge that swords come with, sharp and intelligent on the one hard but occasionally cold and ruthless on the other. As an element the suit of swords is air. They are the mind, the imagination, intellect and the air we speak with. 🐰 🐰 🐰
The Hare is the face of pentacles. With their earth brown coats and wise eyes they are the grounded, practical embodiment of the pentacle who as an element is earth. They are our physical bodies and the act of caring for it, eating, cleaning, sensuality and physical touch. 🦊 🦊 🦊
The fox is the face of wands. With their fire red coats, energetic demeanour and irascible knack to just keep going. The suit of wands is our creativity, passion, our fire and spark. As an element the wands are fire. The wands would be our gut, instincts and where that spark comes from, our very core and what gets us out of bed every day. .
My favourite suit is hard to choose, the love them all but ultimately this whole project for me is pure wands energy. Sheer spark and determination. .
What’s your favourite suit? .
