Women in the Koran
"They ask you about menstruation. Say: ‘It is an indisposition. Keep aloof from women during their menstrual periods and do not approach them until they are clean again; when they are clean, have intercourse with them whence God enjoined you….’" Quran 2:222, "The Cow," Dawood, p. 34
"Women are your fields: go, then, into your fields whence you please." Quran 2:223, "The Cow," Dawood, p. 34
"Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them." Quran 4:34, "Women," Dawood, p. 83
"Enjoin believing women to turn their eyes away from temptation and to preserve their chastity; not to display their adornments (except such as are normally revealed); to draw their veils over their bosoms and not to display their finery except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their step-sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women-servants, and their slave-girls; male attendants lacking in natural vigor, and children who have no carnal knowledge of women. And let them not stamp their feet when walking so as to reveal their hidden trinkets." Quran 24:31, "Light," Dawood, p. 352
"Wives of the Prophet, you are not like other women. If you fear God, do not be too complaisant in your speech, lest the lecherous-hearted should lust after you. Show discretion in what you say. Stay in your homes and do not display your finery as women used to in the days of ignorance." Quran 33:32-3, Dawood, p. 421 [The "days of ignorance" refer to pre-Islamic times.]

There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

A broom dropping in front of the door means company before the day is over.
Always pick up, for luck, a broom that is lying on the floor or ground.
Always sweep dirt out the back door or you will sweep away your best friend.
Most Witches have a working space at home — an altar. The altar is a representation of the astral plane, and represents a link between the physical and the ethereal. The altar can be set anywhere, or on anything, but common places include the mantelpiece, a bookshelf, or a coffee table. An altar that can be neatly packed away can be a useful alternative for small spaces.
Altars have been a…Continue
