Cursing so one take practice and requires skill .

If he had not hurt her what happened to him was justified . In my opinion he should of had a lot worse happen to him .

People bring on their own bad luck . For her to have forgiven him , well that was stupid what he did to her he'll do to someone else .

For all you know she may have told someone that does have the ability to conjure up a curse and they may have done it on her behalf .

Lets put post in the proper thread and not in newbie thread .

That sounds a lot more like... "Karma" / consequences.

I mean, was he a stellar employee? Or, unbeknownst to him, was he already on the verge of being fired? If he got deported, was it because he wasn't here (where ever here is) legally? No one would hire him for three years, is that because his resume was a mess? (Short work durations, lack of experience, leaving multiply jobs for "personal conflicts" etc.) And if *she* matured, maybe *he* matured and started making different choices?

Personally, I believe we make our own "luck."

I see myself not as a priest in everyday live but only as a seeker . During rituals I take the place guider , one that lead those along the path we are on , one that shows others along the path they have chosen .

When I am the oldest Shaman I take the role of lead teacher and Singer ( no priest in Shamanism ) you could call me a priest even though it is not a term used .

In some of the Witchcraft ceremonies I have to act as Priest and acolyte . Being a solitary can make you wear many masks .

Ashe , what you see of Columbia picture logo is it current manifestation . It has had several over the decades . It current one is based on Lady Liberty . While she does look like Minerva almost a statues of Minerva show her with a shield and spear .

Do you see yourself as a priest in everyday life, or solely during ritual or a rite?

Having been a solitary practitioner for almost 30 years , I have become the one that speak to my God/dess . That is when I practice Witchcraft . When I was in a Coven (there were only 9 of us ) and since we all had been at it for years we would rotate who would be the High Priest/ess . Since we all had specific God/dess we would only call out in general for what ever the ritual was .

 When I do a Shamanic rite by myself , I am the traveler . When there is a main ritual the leadership goes to the eldest Shaman .

I do not consider myself a High priest . In most coven there is a hierarchy , which is a good way to stop chaos from running rampant . Over the years I have seen those that function as Priest/ess that have finish their third level but still did not understand the full meaning of how and why things worked .

She's called the Goddess Columbia , also known as the Goddess of the United State . She's based on the Roman Goddess Libertas .
That were she also gets the name Lady Liberty .
 
An like this country she's starting to fall apart .
Speaking of Columbia, how about Columbia Pictures and the Lady who served as a kind of logo before the movie?  Roman head piece and all?  She resembles Minerva and I'm sure that's no mistake.

But what really fascinates me are the archetypes and synbols that aren't obvious.  Even Betty Crocker is almost a stand in for a grain or hearth goddess.

Many witches, especially Wiccans and people who follow Wicca inspired traditions, consider themselves priests or priestesses of the gods, often specific gods.  For some of us our priesthood is mandatory upon initiation and is part of what defines us.  With very few exceptions we do not function as an intermediary between the gods and the laity. Few traditions have a congregation. So what does the priesthood mean to you? If you consider yourself, or have been declared at initiation to be a priest or a priestess as well as a witch, how do you serve that function in your religious life?

Not everything on this topic can or should be shared.  But as your conscience allows I would love to hear your views.

I love all raptors.  We have two pair of red-tailed hawks that nest every year in the same two trees at opposite ends of the property.  Bald eagles go through here all the time to get from one lake to the other and back.  Owls of various sorts as well as other species of hawk / falcon. 

Granted, I'm a bird brain!
