    If you're THAT fascinated by astrology...Google is free. I personally don't partake.

    Mine was but one example of many from all over the world. You are correct.

    Also, much of medicine we practice is taught to us at the expense of Black and Brown lives. Slaves, free Black folk, and immigrants have been used to advance science while their forced sacrifice lies unwritten. Science has a very ugly dark side and acknowledging it is important as we reap the benefits of the murder and mutilation of thousands. Nothing is perfect.

    It may seem at odds but it's really not. Witchcraft was the worlds first dabble into science. They really aren't that different. They are both way to make clearer the things we do not understand. That being said, I identify as an Atheist who dabbles in magic, something to make tangible the energy we feel around us always. I don't believe in a higher power for I believe all the power is within myself, and magic gives me a kind of way to tap into that power. The type of magic I do is testament to that. I do not believe I have the power to influence others or anything like that. I do however, know that people give off energy. That energy has an effect on a person and their space. There are methods that can be use to cleanse a space of negative or stagnant energy. I have seen it work with my own eyes. It's also good to remember that science isn't perfect. It's a collection of theories and proven facts through trial and error, witchcraft is a lot of the same.

    Thank you! I feel that people are so quick to forget that natural remedies have a time and a place and saved our ancestors. That knowledge still has a place in our society. While it can't replace modern medicine, and shouldn't, it doesn't deserve to be treated like snake oil. The key is time and place. I am a woman of science and believe wholeheartedly in modern medicine, but there are somethings that can't be explained or haven't been yet and I'm ok with that. magic gives me a way to take some control over which I normally would have none.

    If you're genuinely fascinated, there's a plethora of books, websites, forums, etc to choose from to further educate yourself. I don't use stones, so I can't answer those questions. I mainly do hearth and kitchen magic with a focus on hoodoo, the magic of my ancestors. I see magic as a respectful manipulation of the energy that is all around us. Sometimes magic is simply courage, sometimes it's something more. It all depends on the user, the spell, and other factors.

    As a practicing witch, OP is very out of touch. Human nature dictates that when one doesn't understand something, the first thing to do is to either fear it or make fun of it. I'll leave it at that.

    Straighter Line Experiences

    Hello all, I'm considering taking a few classes through Straighter Line. If anyone has done this before, what classes would you recommend NOT taking through them. I am finding mixed reviews online and can't really get an exact outlook. I am considering taking: -Microbiology and the Lab (My community college doesn't offer the class online and the in person classes at inconvenient times for me) -Sociology -Pharmacology Looking forward to the feed back, thank you.

    Working while schooling

    Thank you! I work for a large hospital system in Houston, so I'm sure you can see why I want to stay on as long as I can. I have a few more prereqs and the prenursing courses to complete and then I'll be on my way. I'm very optimistic and excited.

    Working while schooling

    Hey y'all, I'm currently working on enrolling for the Fall 2020 semester to finish up some of my prereqs and I was wondering if it's possible to work full time once acceptance the AO BSN program is made? I have a daughter and my income is a must, I can't really afford to completely quit. (plus I need my insurance from my job) I am lucky enough to have very sedentary job right now and my work load is never more than I can handle. I've been doing my homework at work so far with no issue. I guess I'm just wanting more insight on how strenuous the AO program is. Thanks.
