    Book Review – Pagan Portals-Thor: Meeting the Norse God of Thunder by Morgan Daimler

    Book Review Pagan Portals: Thor Meeting the Norse God of Thunder by Morgan Daimler 104 Pages     The Norse God, Thor is probably one of the most well known. You don’t have to be a pagan or mythology buff to have the general story of this God of Thunder who is part of the curriculum as first introductions in elementary school, and woven into much of secondary teaching. Apart from that introduction, movies and comics have made Thor a symbol of strength, courage and let’s not forget some very appealing eye-candy.

    Book Review Taurus A Hearse of a Different Color by Aephera Giron 296 Pages     This book review is for Taurus A Hearse of a Different Color by Sephera Giron.  It is from the Witch upon A Star series.

I’ll list the serious below with her other books, too. This is a very well written witchy romance about a witch named Dorothy. It takes place in a magickal fictional…

    Lenormand Decks I Would Love to Own You know how it is – after getting your first Tarot deck – usually a Rider-Waite or some deck based on the Rider-Waite symbolism – you learn enough of the symbolism and become an adept-enough reader to want to stretch out – get a different deck and see how well you can read those cards. I remember that the second deck of Tarot cards I got for myself was the Motherpeace deck and that was quite a change from the traditional Rider-Waite cards I had been reading! After that, I just wanted to collect all the decks I could. More than that, I…
