I Am Pagan But Not Wiccan

    I Know There's More..

    ..than one god, so I am Pagan. I am not Wiccan (although I used to be), because I don't have the time to actively practice something. I can't dedicate myself to a religion if I can't give it my all.

    From one of my Astrologically minded friends, please find the story below. I was a tiny kid when the song came out and was gleeful in my twenties with the beginning of the New Age, knowing we were heading toward the Age of Aquarius, though it's about a 30 year long shift. Yeah...

    Pagan And Proud

    I started out with Wiccan tendencies.  However, Wicca seemed a bit too dogmatic for me, so I'm rather an eclectic Pagan.  I relate to the Divine in a way that feels right to me.  That's about it for now, being that it's past my bedtime, lol.

    Former Wiccan

    No. Not a Christian story. Lol. I began research at an early age because of some paranormal experiences like seeing ghosts, having prophetic dreams, and memories of a past life. This led me to paganism and witchcraft, and ultimately Wicca. I loved the ideas and structure, and the...

    My Eclectic Pagan Journey

    Christianity is a religion with its roots in

    Egypt. It is an offshoot of Judaism, descended from a blending of two fundamentalist Jewish lobbies. It gained global precedence because of it's linking to the Roman Empire. In Northern Europe at about the same time there was a deepening growth in the religion of the Norse...
