According to an educated dude from the University of Sheffield, however, we should be celebrating at Stonehenge at Winter not Summer Solstice.  Archaeology Prof. Mike Parker Pearson says -- and it makes sense -- that December 21 was a scary

    The Wild Hunt | A modern Pagan perspective.

    There are lots of articles and essays of interest to modern Pagans and Heathens out there, sometimes more than our team can write about in-depth in any given week. So The Wild Hunt must unleash the hounds in order to round them all up.  First, we update a story reported on last week: Circle Sanctuary has announced its plans to assist all PSG 2015 attendees, who are in need. Several Circle Ministers have volunteered to offer spiritual counseling. Included in this healing work was a special full moon ceremony last night, which was dedicated to “PSG Healing and Renewal.”  In…

  • ATHANA dropped HER HAND...

    14 Jun 2015 | 2:54 pm
    Athana sighed. “I have a time machine, Russ. I’m what you call an ‘ancient’ Minoan.”  “Athana …,” said Russ gently, leaning toward her, pity in his eyes, exactly as if she were a child to be taken home and rocked. Emily glared at the ground, arms still folded, then looked up at Athana sideways, her hazel eyes narrowed. Athana dropped her hand under the table. After flipping a small bronze

  • Religious Freedom through Interfaith Cooperation In North Carolina

    1 Jul 2015 | 7:01 am
    LINCOLNTON, North Carolina — Prayer at public meetings is often a battleground with members of minority faiths seeking to have their viewpoints represented, while others argue that such religious ceremony doesn’t belong in a governmental setting. Since the Supreme Court’s 2014 Town of Greece v Galloway decision that allowed such prayers provided minority faiths are included, Pagans and others have sought to test those boundaries. For example, the pantheist David Suhor sang an invocation of the quarters at a county commission meeting in Florida.  More recently, when the…

    WILLOW, Alaska – A Pagan community center in the Sockeye region of Alaska has completely burned down in a wildfire. The community center consisted of over nine acres of woods with four cabins, and is now considered a total loss. Center Director Anthony Bailey said clean up efforts are underway, and he is asking for financial assistance to help rebuild the center. The Alaska Pagan Community Center, more commonly known as The Land, is located near Willow.  It opened about five years ago as a non-profit nature sanctuary and Pagan retreat.

Welcoming Beauty and Fertile Abundance You can see that The Empress presides over a field of wheat, with trees and a stream with a waterfall in the background.

  • Full Moon Ritual (Short, Simple and Solitary)

    Stella Seaspirit
    30 Jun 2015 | 2:11 am
    While some practitioners may enjoy using full moon for spell work, I prefer to leverage this energy as a time for meditation, reflection, appreciation, interacting with my Interdimensional Support Team (including ancestors), recharging my energy field and balancing chakras. I share why below.   At full moon the sun and moon are on opposite sides of the Earth so the moon is in direct opposition to the sun and this is symbolic of the conscious self (represented by the sun) fully illuminating the unconscious (represented by the moon).   What this means is that what was hidden comes to…

    In my woo circles, I’m the Reiki Master that no one knows is a Reiki Master. It isn’t because I don’t use or teach it, or because it’s become the Catalina Dressing of the holistic healing world. Rather, it’s a quiet thing for me, or should I say a very internal thing. Indeed it plays second fiddle to my shamanic focus, though I still consider it a very useful feather to have in my cap. I also have to add that I just don’t resonate with a lot of the culture that has sprung up around Reiki, the arguing about who’s doing it right, what Usui really…

    For the week of 28  June 2015 Recognition of completed works takes precedence this week, as does applying the spoils of taking stock. Recall that in the runic calendar, Dagaz is the last rune rather than Othala, as in the Elder Futhark. On the 29th, the half-month rune shifts from Dagaz to Fehu. The intuitive stave is Berkano. To the right is Dagaz atop Fehu, with Berkano to the left. Following is a summary of The Weekly Rune.

  • Betwixt – Feathers and Felonies

    Kelley Harrell
    25 Jun 2015 | 2:35 am
    In the Betwixt series, I talk a lot about Nature Spirit Allies. For many seekers, these allies are engaged through work with fetishes, or power items, as has become the phrase-of-the-day. For a shamanist, this means possessing some likeness of the Nature being, whether it’s a figurine, an image, a bit of fur, a feather… The connection isn’t just to keep memorabilia of a fond totem near. When we engage Nature Spirits a relationship is formed, in which reciprocity of need-meeting occurs. In other words, it’s a living connection, not just a weird trinket dangling from the…

    To dismiss Earth-based religious perspectives, as too backward-looking, too regressive, or too fixated on the past, is to deny one of our best avenues for true progress. But if we cling to our modern modes of existence, we guarantee a bleak future for succeeding generations.
