    Nurturing Your Wild Child

    Prepping the Roots of Spirituality When and How to Introduce Your Children to the Path A common denominator in our Spiritual pathways as Pagans is the very immediate indoctrination of a secular Faith, and this beginning is very sheltering and terrifying for many of us. Growing through our Spiritual paths we find that healing becomes a part of this, a necessary piece to rid ourselves of this fear of something unknown which draws into our lives another commonality – the need to save our families from this same Faith-based trauma. This idea coupled with the understanding of how our natural cyclical beings are attuned to the Universe, we begin to…

    As Above So Below (How the Stars Became Our Hearts) 2nd Edition

    How to Cook Cliché     What is the nature of reality?   As Morpheus from The Matrix describes, if real is what we experience with our senses, then it’s simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain. As Plato describes in Allegory of the Cave, you can only postulate at what the universe really is by deductive logic based on the very limited sensory data interpreted by the brain.    This isn’t a new thought.   What is new is now we have scientific evidence that the universe may be nothing more than a simulation.   We’ve been indoctrinated by surface physics. That is to say, our entire interpretation of…

    WitchCrafting: Crafts for Witches

    Witch’s Runes Merry meet.     I was a witch for more than a decade before I came across a set of witch’s runes at a tag sale. It was several more months before I was able to identify what they were. If you believe less is more, you will want these. If the traditional Norse rune symbols don’t resonate with you, it could be because they don’t speak your language. Every witch, pagan and muggle can understand these eight symbols: sun, moon, wave, birds, leaf, rings, crossed spears, and the color black. My symbols were burned into twig slices. If you’d like to make a set, you might consider…

    Astrea Taylor: Interviewing an Intuitive Witch

    During the Covid-19 Crisis, digital interviews have really come into their own! Many thanks to Astrea Taylor, witch and author of Intuitive Witchcraft, for taking the time out to talk to PaganPagesOrg about her book, her craft and more.   Mabh Savage (MS): For those that haven’t yet read the book, can you tell us a little about what you mean by “The path without a path.”   Astrea Taylor (AT): In paganism and witchcraft, there’s a lot of talk about the pagan path or the path of a witch. This concept is popularized in pagan media, with book covers or blog photos depicting a forested path. If you unpack…

This volume offers over forty deeply personal poems on themes of lust, love, and the meaning of monsters. I was delighted to receive this digital volume with its striking cover art. I love poetry.

Even if I had not been in this frame of mind,…

    WitchCrafting: Crafts for Witches

    Easy DIY Floating Candles Merry meet. I like using floating candles on my altar because I know the water will prevent a fire – and because they emit an enchanting light. Yes, you can buy them, but crafting them is easy using a variety of objects: walnut shells, many seashells, bottle caps, a mini muffin pans, vintage tart tins.   The easiest way to make them is to melt tea lights by placing them on an electric coffee cup warmer. Once the wax is liquid, move the wick from the tea light to the middle of the mold, and carefully pour the melted wax into the walnut shell, clam shell,…

    Planning with Avalon Video

    Sabbat: Midsummer Planning with Avalon Sol the Sun God is at the height of his virility. The Goddess is now full and pregnant with child.

From now the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer and we are drawn back into the dark to complete the Wheel of the Year. The Oak…
