Practical Magic With Saoirse: Making Yourself At Home

By Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings,

I don’t know about you, but I have moved around a lot. I do mean a lot. It seems like every year, Mom had us somewhere new and some years, she had us live more than one place. People ask, “Were you a military brat?” I tell them, ‘No, Mama had the wanderlust.” So is it any wonder why I always heard people’s stories about their love for their hometowns and I wished for what they had? At almost age 50, I am still wishing for that. I could lament my fate, but I’d rather explain how you can feel at home when no PLACE is really home. Because if you practice magic, it can be done.

Practical Magic with Saoirse – The Magical Importance of Education

Bright Blessings.

I think it’s fair to say people hating on their degrees is an internet trend right now. It seems like every day I read an article where someone laments that they feel their degree is “worthless.”

No, it isn’t, and I will tell you why. Continue reading Practical Magic with Saoirse – The Magical Importance of Education

Practical Magic with Saoirse: Somebody Put a Curse on Me! (No, They Didn’t)

By Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings,

There are a lot of things I love about being a Tarot reader. I get to go spend time with my magical family at the shop where I read, and I get to help people. I remember many times when I was a baby witch that various readers helped me on my path, and I’ll bet they didn’t even know they were helping. To follow their example is a great honor, and I hope that I’m able to help people like Tarot readers have helped me. Continue reading Practical Magic with Saoirse: Somebody Put a Curse on Me!

Practical Magic with Saoirse: Beltane Memories

By Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings,

I write this on Beltane Eve, and my online memories have been showing me photos from years past. For many years, we used to gather at Beltane. We would rent a group campsite or Metro Park shelter and be there from the time the park opened until it closed. We had rituals, potlucks, talks, and for some years we camped. Continue reading Practical Magic with Saoirse: Beltane Memories

Practical Magic With Saoirse: A Safe Place for Our LGBTQIA+ Kids

By Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings,
A school is being sued. A child could not come out trans to their parents, but they felt safe coming out at school. When the parents found this out at, this lead to the child attempting suicide, so the parents are suing the school accusing the school of forcing their child to identify as trans. The minute I found out about this I got on the telephone and called the school. I thanked them for being a safe place for kids. They really appreciated hearing from somebody that supported that. I gave them my contact information as a Priestess and I told them to let me know if they needed anything at all. I just might hear back from them. Know why? Allies need help in making a safe place for our kids. Continue reading Practical Magic With Saoirse: A Safe Place for Our LGBTQIA+ Kids

Practical Magic With Saoirse: The Power of Saying “Yes”

By Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings,

So, I have written about the power of saying “no” and what a wonderful magic word it is. However, there is another magic word that is just as potent and will give you just as good of results if not better ones. You might think the word is “please” or even “pretty please” because sometimes saying that will get you what you want. You might think the word is “later”,because that gives you a pause and reminds people to come back and try again. You might also think the magic word is “love” because without it most things in life wouldn’t be possible. Those are all very powerful magical words, but I have a different magic word that I bet you don’t say to yourself very often. Continue reading Practical Magic With Saoirse: The Power of Saying “Yes”

Practical Magic with Saoirse: Can Interfaith Relationships Work?

By Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings,

I remember when I was what some could call a “baby witch.” I was 30 and had moved from my home in Ohio to Phoenix, Arizona. I found my path after walking away from Christianity there. I was befriended by someone named John who was 30 years my senior. John was absolutely horrified I got engaged to a man who lived back home in Ohio and was going to move back there to marry him.

Practical Magic with Saoirse: Are Pagans Better at Love?

By Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings.

Most of you have not seen my writings besides here at The Green Egg. My current paid job is for Spiritual Blossom, an online psychic company, and I do submissions each week to them. I worked for their sister company, Mysticsense for years as well.

One of the things I write about for our clients, of course, is love! There is never an end to what can be said about love and relationships and recently, something dawned on me when I was yet again doing another love article. The Bible says a lot about the selflessness of love and how everybody should be loving. Yet, growing up Christian, I did not experience that. What drew me to Pagans and Witches was their deep concern for the wellbeing of all of creation. Do Pagans embody love better than Christians do?

Practical Magic With Saoirse: The Magic of Rehoming

by Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings,

How many times have you seen a meme, video, or a snarky comment about the fact that someone has to rehome an animal? It is true that there are some people who are heartless. They get an animal on a whim and then they are too lazy to care for it. Maybe the animal broke their favorite vase so they want to get rid of it. Maybe they don’t like the fact that there’s dog hair everywhere. Maybe they bought the pet for their small children and they want to punish their kids for not taking care of it like an adult would.

Practical Magic With Saoirse: Food Magic

By Lady Saoirse,

Bright Blessings,

There is a form of magic not everybody knows about: Food Magic. Today, we have a strange relationship with food. We either eat as little as possible in order to starve ourselves so somebody we want to be lovers with thinks we are “thin and desirable enough,” or we eat some fad diet that is toted by the media as the cure-all humans ate thousands of years ago before the evils of industrialization. We don’t eat for our health. No, we have pills for that. We don’t grow our own food, we don’t butcher animals for meat, nor do most people even know how to cook anything unless it comes in a box, can, or bag with easy-to-follow instructions on it.

Practical Magic: The Magic of Buying Secondhand

By Lady Saoirse

Bright Blessings,

When I wrote last, I discussed the value of removing things from your home. Junking up your home with things that you have no use for is bad physically and spiritually and I gave my case for cutting the clutter to make room for what you really want in your home. Now, I’d like to make the case for bringing secondhand things into your home. Why buy secondhand? Continue reading Practical Magic: The Magic of Buying Secondhand
