    The star is actually suppose to point down then

    up. Because it represents energy returning to the earth, the way its meant to be in real life. Instead of it dissipating into space.

    Discovered Buckland's Complete Book Of

    Witchcraft in the public library back the mid 80s when I was a teen. That book showed me that the other witchcraft books were Christian satanic panic. I was 16 years old then, when I was introduced to that book. I didn't become a wiccan until I was 18. I had the typical...

    Such A Blessing

    I was fortunate enough to find Wicca when I was 19. My parents were extremely cool with it, heck, my Mom even became kind of Pagan herself. My brother and his wife, on the other hand, thought it was just a phase. They wanted to "save". So here I am, now 32, and still very much a...

    I feel like I've been experiencing a "goddess

    tap" lately from the goddess Isis, or possibly the goddess Nephthys. Or perhaps both? I have done a few tarot readings using the Thoth Tarot, and many of the cards I draw have displayed aspects of both of the goddesses. I have dreams in which they appear to me in different forms...

    So...what Exactly Does Pagan Mean?

      I get asked that a lot. The older I get the harder it is to answer. Ten years ago when I was running the Earth-Based Religion Forum at Microsoft Network I had to come up with a formal definition of Pagan that was broad enough to encourage all types of Pagans to use the...

    Paganism Is Not Nature Worship

    There is a general conception that paganism is an "earth-based religion" and that all pagans worship nature. This is not true. Many of you are probably gasping in disbelief at this statement. "Not so!", many will exclain, "All paganism honors nature!" This is doubtlessly true...

    I have walked the path

    for more than twenty years. I have found some of the most open minded people in the Pagan world and I have also found some of the most judgmental people as well. I say.. Never be a anti spiritualist because you do not like it done to you. :)

    I am a proud supporter of the divine feminine.

    I don't get to share that often because I come from a conservative family who can not accept that if you're not Christian. you're wrong and will want nothing to do with you.
