A few days before my time of the month… Guys will never understand
I got my period nine years ago and sometimes I still think Oh god I’m going to die.
That’s 108 weeks of blood.
540 days of blood.
I am only 20 years old, which means that I probably have another 25-30 years to go.
That’s another 300-360 weeks of blood.
1500-1800 more days of blood.
This is a low estimate.
Please try telling me that women are weak. Just try.

Saint Michael: Patron of Italian Folk Magic (S. Michele: Patrono della Benedicaria)
It is never an uncommon sight to see those learned in the healing arts of the Mezzogiorno (Southern Italy) to be invoking this powerful archangel to not only assist them in their daily lives but also in the work that they do for their communities. But why is it that so many Maghi call Michael their patron?
St. Michael’s celestial function as protector of the children of God and the bane of hell makes him extremely attractive and valuable to us as the Sicilian tradition specializes, and often emphasizes, protection and hex breaking magicks. To heal another is to battle the illness within them, essentially exorcizing the malady from their bodies- this very idea is how St. Michael took on the additional patronage of healthcare workers during the middle ages, and how it is that we approach healing our clients.
The Maghi have also learned from our heavenly patron on how to carry ourselves in this world. As protectors of our communities, knights in the eternal battle for the souls of the needy and helpless, to carry ourselves with honor and courage is the hallmark of a proper Sicilian but an essential aspect of a mago(a).
While the cunning tradition of Southern Italy and Sicily vary from family to family, and thus few generalizations can be made about the craft, many will agree that this Heavenly Prince is never far away when we work to protect ourselves and our clients. To dedicate oneself to San Michele and to call upon the powerful flame of his sword is a invaluable tool on the path of Benedicaria.
