I really want a nice silver pentacle to hang around my neck. I have this fascination of "looking the part" in everything I do. Even when I started dating women (about 6 months before I met my husband) I went out and bought some men's clothing and got a short haircut. My new Pagan mentors are so normal aside from their pentacles. That is how I see me. I can be myself and still be and feel witchy. It is probably a good idea to wait for that particular adornment. I am sure that would start some pretty fervent conversations I would not be ready to have. Not to mention I have no money to waste on my appearance.
I checked out this book from the library today, Hedge Witch: Spells, crafts and rituals for Natural Magick by Silver Ravenwolf. I absolutely love it! It seems to be the perfect book for me at this point in my Pagan lessons. I can't tell you much about it yet, as I am only about 20 pages into it, but that it really speaks to me. If you have never heard of it, you should definitely check it out! I really like her writing. It is not dry but not far-fetched. It works with you for a 14 day period of time to help you clear out the negative from your mind and reach your goals quickly.
