Merry Meet lovelies, I am a Wiccan/Pagan and am not one to judge.
I respect and love nature. I am a caring but shy person.
I slip into apathy but it comes and goes, you've been warned.
I try to be a good person, and I try to promote fairness.
I am not one for judgement.
I have my faults and sides, “Everybody's got a dark side,
nobody's a picture perfect but we're worth it”-Kelly Clarkson Dark Side


I am but a mysterious soul traversing the physical plane of reality
on the beautiful Earth. The Earth is my temple
and I her willing caretaker and witch.

You got Esmeralda from 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame'!

You are fearless and streetwise, but that doesn't mean you don't have a heart of gold deep down.
You are able to look beyond physical appearances when it comes to choosing people you care for,
which is a trait not many posess.

You are the heroine of you own story and
always make sure to take care of people less fortunate than you,
it's what makes you so hard to resist.

I am so sorry everyone. I know I'm often closed off and down right MIA but I've been going through a lot lately and I just want to come clean. To be fair to you all on here who at times remind me to get out of bed in the morning. I've dealt with a lot of ups and downs the past three years. Some shocking, some emotional and spiritual, and some just plain abhorrent events in my life are things I've faced. But the main one is isolation and loneliness.

I have a problem. I am not... the kind of person who is always able to feel, communicate, or even accept someone's love and care. Part of it is fear. I never did have friends and my family... Well, they act more like givers of a surname than family. I am sorry I rarely talk to you all. Part of that is how I am and how I always hide when I'm depressed. You may be thinking given how much I hide, "Does this mean you are always depressed?" Yes at times. I've been hiding it for years. I had to remove myself from life to take care of other situations like my education else I'd be overwhelmed.

And just to get a little more personal I cried myself to sleep last night. It's a downer isn't it? Feeling alone, hopeless, defeated, and confused. Being a young, confused person and homosexual wanting love who's never dated or had friends is tough. But recently either by epiphany or The Gods I let myself talk to a person I haven't been fair to. I am still accepting myself without success. I'm scared, I'm afraid, I'm not one who is even sure they can feel love or emotion. Just telling it like it is a lot more of how I act is a mask to hide his I feel. I joke to cover it and laugh to keep others from feeling so down.

I may be empathetic but I am sometimes apathetic. I cry about not fitting into boxes, about being unsure if I am man or woman, gay or asexual, aromatic or love sick. And yes I am Pagan and yes I am a witch, and yes I am NOT cisgender! But you know what? I'm tired. I don't want to be closed forever and feel lonely when alone or around others. My family may not accept me. Some of you may not but I going to live for me.

I'm going to be me. I'm going to be "they" not he or even she although girl I can be sassy and sweeter than candy. I make no apologies about being a sarcastic bitch. Honey it helps me cope if I can laugh.

This was to say sorry for keeping you in the dark. Not sorry for being raw or real. You may notice a name change in the future. Valentine. Before you snicker hear me and history. Valentine from the Latin Valentinus meaning strength, health, courage, and for those who rise. How beautiful is that? A name for those who are strong and it knows no gender like me. Laugh. If you do please leave. If I wanted a bad audience or cheap reception I could go my local pub.

I am me and I am sorry to keep it hidden.
But I'm gonna change all of that and live for me. Blessed be. Thanks for reading.

Fauveih Map Political UPDATED V2
The map of my land for my book From The Heavens Book1: the continent Fauveih.  Fauveih is divided into two parts, Treforyl (named for its trefoil shape) in the North, and Polaeron in the south.  Polaris is the largest entity with territory on both sub-continental lands.  The main areas the heroes are from are the Lendelise and Frais Kingdoms (Frekia Kingdoms).  This map is the political map with the capitals shown as well as territory and major bodies of water.  Fauveih comes from my fantasy language; Fauveihllic (Fauveillin-teth Fairyland-tongue) and the word for faerie-lands, Fauveihllin: Fau-veihllin.

No explorer from Fauveih has ever sailed north of the Icy Abyss or South of the Scourged Sea; which is why the map lines are started where they are; that's the furthest explorers have gone.

UPDATED: Major Cities and towns on Treforyl shown.  Frekia changed to Frais (for strawberries "fraise" and for French influence).
UPDATED: Faerie added to Name
UPDATED: Archipelago of Nininium added due West
UPDATED: Borders and landmass edited
UPDATED: Included Compass, fixed misspellings, fixed errors in visuals, fixed transparencies
UPDATED: Renamed Karvanter to Frédérique meaning, "peaceful ruler," naming for French influence and named to honor the king.
UPDATED: Chateau de Chansons added to island east of Lendelisse to be a major stop in book later
UPDATED: Labels recolored

Children of the Sun Done
A personification of the solar system in astrology and astronomy to an extent.


Sol: Here the Sun is depicted as the Great Mother, Sol, and her children are in front of her. She is the ego and ruler of Leo and Aries.

Left to Right:
Mercury and Venus:
Mercury here is themed to the god and air for speed and communication with a burning caduceus to represent the heat of Mercury and its hot iron core, next is Venus the Scorned Beauty, once like Earth but now scarred and burned.  Mercury is the fastest planet in the Solar System fitting for the god its namesake is from.  Mercury in astrology is a planet of communication and rules over Virgo and Gemini.

Venus is named for the Goddess of love and beauty. and rules Taurus and Libra.  Venus is one of the brightest objects in the sky called the Morning Star and the Evening Star, the Shining Star Venus.

Earth, Luna, and Mars:
Earth cuddles her daughter Luna, she is the living planet and the Mother Goddess.  Luna is silvery and gleaming holding her mother in embrace. Mars below her although barren is based on Aries a warrior.  The Earth is a planet of life and death, rebirth, and love.  The Earth has all we need and holds all humanity is and was.  She is our mother and provider.  In Paganism she is often personified as a mother goddess such as Gaia.

The Moon also named Luna for distinguishing between other moons such as Charon here represents our subconscious and emotions.  She is changing and eternal yet same and fleeting.  She rules over Cancer.  This is why it is said Cancers are so empathetic and emotional, their planet is the symbol of that in Tarot. In some cultures calendars are governed by the Moon Luna not the Sun or Earth.

Mars is the red planet and named for the God of War.  It is intensity and bravery, and rules over Aries.  Mars is also the classical ruler for Scorpio giving rise to the intensity and emotional intrigue in Scorpios.

Jupiter:
Next is Jupiter based on the deity Zeus thus the human appearance, he is strong and brave but very vindictive and arrogant.  Jupiter actually does have a ring system and it is made of mostly dust unlike Saturn's icy rings so it is faint and called a halo so here the Jovian Rings are a halo.  Jupiter is the planet of winds and luck.  It rules over Sagittarius.

Saturn:
Behind Jupiter is Saturn, dressed in fanciful clothes to compliment her beautiful rings, she stares off at you with a sense of duty.  Saturn is a planet of storms and lightning, rings, and moons so here I have Saturn looking approachable but a bit intimidating.  Saturn in astrology is of agriculture, Aquarius and Capricorn.

Uranus and Neptune:
Then The Lovers the Ice Giants of the Solar System, Uranus and Neptune, inspired by Sailor Moon's female lovers these two are in an eternal dance across the skies with one as the sea and the other as the sky.  Both planets have rings but Neptune's are famed for being exceptionally dark with little thicker sections called arcs shown here. 

Uranus is from the Greek Ouranus god of the sky and rules over Aquarius. It is unusual for rotating on its side shown here in the picture.

Neptune named for the god of the Sea and Water is the ruler of Pisces.

Pluto and Charon:
Then finally Pluto and its large moon Charon.  The two act as equals and double-planets orbiting a barycenter shown by the staff in the astrological symbol of Pluto.  Charon is Pluto's inverse in color and both are darker characters with winged-feet similar to Mercury.

Pluto is the planet of Scorpio and Pluto is named for the god of the Underworld. Pluto astrologically represents becoming anew, to shed the old for something greater.  People dominant in Pluto often have great changes in their lives.

Charon while not used in astrology was the figure who carried departed souls to the Underworld on the river Styx.
