I dissolved the coven about a month ago and tonight would be the first ritual that I held without them. It didn’t go as I had imagined. Usually this would cause stress for me because there had always been a group of us (anywhere from six to eight) holding ritual for the past five years. Last night my husband was going to hold ritual with me, but he was exhausted from work and decided to go to sleep. So I was left truly alone; physically and energetically. Honestly though, I didn’t mind. I was curious as to how it would be for me to stand alone in my cast Circle. It had been so many years since I had experienced being solitary that I had forgotten what it was like and was excited for this opportunity.
