Greetings and Blessings!
« on: April 16, 2017, 02:26:19 pm »
Hail, friends...my name is Aethiriel (a lot like "ethereal") and I'm happy to be a new member of the Cauldron! I just had my 31st birthday yesterday and my husband and I will be celebrating the first anniversary of our hand-fasting tomorrow! It's been a beautiful but intense and busy spring, has it not? Lots of interesting, fluctuating and purifying energy flying around. Just trying to navigate this current Mercury retrograde as well as possible!
I was not raised pagan at all but began to have leanings and curiosities from a very young age and over several years I slowly began to sense and realize a lot of important things and pulled away from a rather staunch Christian upbringing, Mormon to be precise. I am very happy to have discovered my true self and developed my own beliefs and a very proud practicing witch with a house full of altars! A few of my primary deities include Freya and Thor of Norse & Germanic tradition, Danu of the Fae, Atargatis the Syrian goddess and first known mermaid, and Sedna, the Inuit sea goddess.
I am a member of a small local coven of pagan women called The Wyrd Sisters and am actually one of the only two founding members that remain and are active. Though the current "official" coven was ritually re-named and formed with new members almost a year ago, it's been together for I think about two now.
I recently created a blog called The Oracle of Water https://oracleofwater.wordpress.com/ , which I'm excited to share with kindred spirits here! It is indeed brand new and it is growing slowly but surely. It's based on my predominantly water-based magical and spiritual practice and also focuses on bringing awareness and, hopefully, more involvement to ocean and marine life conservation.
Looking forward to participating in enlightening and uplifting conversations with fellow pagans, and thanks for being here! Blessed Be ~

Hail, friends...


Welcome to TC Aethiriel
"If I get on, Susan thought, it'll all start again.  I'll be out of the light and into the world beyond this one.  I'll fall off the tightrope.
But a voice inside her said, You want to, though...don't you...?
Ten seconds later, there was only the snow."
(Terry Pratchett's Hogfather)
