  1. Some of the signs make sense to me. I have seen rain happen after seeing those particular signs. The snake crossing my path sign doesn’t seem to work in California. A lot of snakes have crossed my path out here but we’re still dying from a drought. Maybe we need more snakes?

    I am a Reiki Master with leanings more toward Buddhism than Wicca, but I have studied Wicca in the past and share some of its beliefs. I am able to communicate with plants, so have become interested in my pagan Celtic heritage. I have written of a few “plant whisperer” experiences I have had at my blog. Come visit!
