HISTORICAL OSTARA
Ostara is one of the newest sabbats. Ancient peoples celebrated the spring season, including Earth’s annual revival, rather than the vernal equinox itself. However, despite a lack of historical origins as a festival, the spring equinox is a part of an Earth cycle that predates humans, when the passive darker half of the year ends and the active lighter half begins. This astronomical balance, along with the fertility of the season, is what contemporary Pagans celebrate during Ostara.The name Ostara originates from an ancient Germanic goddess, Eostre, of dawn and spring. She is associated with eggs, fertility, hares, rabbits, and the spring season in general. As an explanation for the egg and hare association, contemporary legend has it that Eostre turned a bird into a hare but the transformation wasn’t complete so the hare laid eggs. Otherwise, very little is known about this goddess.

Kansas City Hauntings: History and Mysteries of the Paris of the Plains is her first book.
https://www.ghostsagogo.com/book
KANSAS CITY HAUNTINGSHISTORY AND
MYSTERY OF THE PARIS OF THE PLAINS
BY BECKY RAY


Founded on the confluence of two rivers, Kansas City is a place of history, mystery, legend, and lore. The city helped settle the West as the gateway to the Oregon and Santa Fe Trails, and when the railroads arrived, it was considered the Crossroads of the Country. During the Civil War, the Missouri-Kansas border became the first battlefield in the bloody conflict.
The Kansas City Stockyards put the city on the national map, as did the horrific massacre at Union Station, Kansas City jazz, and the crime and corruption of the Pendergast era and the years of Prohibition.
With all that history, is it any wonder that Kansas City is one of the most haunted cities in America?
Take a trip back in time to the early days of the city and discover how the events of the past created the hauntings that still linger in Kansas City today. Go behind the scenes of the most spirited places in the region with author Becky Ray as she reveals a colorful collection of favorite haunts, stories you’ve never heard before, and takes you behind locked doors for the true stories behind some of your favorite local haunts!

You’ll be shocked and terrified by historical tales of crime and murder with lurid stories of gangsters, killers, thieves, and cold-blooded murderers that haunt the stories of the Bobby Greenlease Kidnapping, the Union Station Massacre, Kansas City Strangler, the Bridge Murder Case, the Prospect Corridor Killer, and more!
Then search for the phantoms of the Savoy Hotel, the Muehlebach, Hotel President, the Folly Theater, Power and Light Building, Epperson House, Sauer Castle, and even journey out beyond the city borders to the Belvoir Winery and Inn, Vaile Mansion, Elms Hotel and Spa, Glore Psychiatric Museum, and much more!
Part history book, part true crime thriller, and part ghost book, this volume is sure to have you looking over your shoulder as you turn the pages at night!

The 21 Divisions: Mysteries and Magic of Dominican Voodoo
https://www.amazon.com/21-Divisions-Mysteries-Dominican-Voodoo-ebook/dp/B07XMHTVCH/

One of the first books to explore the unique tradition of Dominican shamanism, the magical practices called the 21 Divisions.

Like all forms of Caribbean Voodoo, practitioners of the 21 Divisions believe in one God, a distant God that doesn’t get involved in human affairs. Followers of this Dominican spiritual tradition believe that God created intermediaries to help humans, beings known as Los Misterios.

The Misterios are powerful beings with rulership and dominion over universal forces and human conditions. Practitioners of the 21 Divisions have ways of connecting with the Misterios to achieve success in life, improve their careers, resolve love and relationship issues, heal illness, and much more.

Filled with detailed insider information and real stories of healing, magic, and mystery, this book will serve as an illuminating guide to the 21 Divisions. Hector Salva―one of the foremost authorities on the practice of the 21 Divisions―offers his insights into:

The history and foundations of Dominican Voodoo
The major Misterios, or spirits, of the 21 Divisions
Ceremonies, rituals, and magical spells
How to get started on the path of the 21 Divisions

Video Recording Of The Show

One of the places investigated was ‘Old Montana Prison’
https://www.visitmt.com/listings/general/museum/old-montana-prison.html
Old Montana Prison is located in the Old Montana Prison Complex, which houses five unique museums inside its historic prison walls. The complex includes the Old Montana Prison, Powell County Museum, Frontier Montana Museum, Yesterday’s Playthings and the Montana Auto Museum. One fee covers all museums.

Discover yesteryear when you step into the first Territorial Prison in the western United States. The prison was built by convict labor in the late 1800s. The gray sandstone walls of this immense structure are 24 feet high and buried 4 feet deep to prevent escape by tunneling.

You can visit the enclosed courtyard where the convicts exercised, and walk through their austere cell blocks and feel the chills of maximum-security cells. The last prisoners were moved in 1979 after which the facility was opened to the public.


Another site was Dumas Brothel
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dumas_Brothel

See the source image


The Dumas Brothel was a bordello in Butte, Montana. The brothel was founded by French Canadian brothers Joseph and Arthur Nadeau in 1890 and named after the nominal owner, Delia Nadeau, née Dumas, who was Joseph’s wife. It grew considerably through the years, with the miners employed by the city’s copper mines often patronizing the establishment. After several changes of the “madams” and continuing pressure from authorities, the brothel closed in 1982, described as “a rare, intact commentary on social history”. At the time of its closure, it was the longest operating brothel in the United States, having operated years after prostitution was made illegal. After closing, the brothel changed hands several times, eventually becoming a tourist attraction owned and managed by a series of Butte residents.
