    [Photo Credit: S. Del Kjer]On Sunday, April 12, nearly 100 people gathered together to honor the life of Yuvette Henderson, a 38-year old woman who was killed in Oakland in February. The vigil and march, organized by the Anti Police-Terror Project, is one of the many recent Bay Area social justice actions that have been supported by local area Pagans. In this case, there were at least nine Pagans in attendance. T. Thorn Coyle was one of them and said, “[We] gathered on the corner where Yuvette was killed by Emeryville PD, in Oakland.

    Five days ago, a few cartoons shook out the massacre of 12 French artists and journalists. Here are some of these cartoons (with English translations). Although most seem innocent enough, a few are fairly skanky. But to murder someone because of a few scratches made on paper -- no matter how offensive -- is pure psychosis. IMO.   But that's YAJ* for you, isn't it?  Pure psychosis.

    Witches and millennials are two of the media’s favorite scapegoats. When you read an article or blog post written by anyone, there is always an agenda. Everyone has an agenda. I have an agenda. I am both a millennial and a Pagan. As such I probably skimmed over the more favorable pieces to find those with inflammatory headlines and those that were sure to prove my point today. Unfortunately, I didn’t have to go past the first page of Google news results to do so.

    Crowdfunding to finance a project is nothing new in Pagan circles, sometimes successful, sometimes less successful. And new tarot decks aren’t exactly thin on the ground either. So a crowdfunding effort by a Pagan to finance a new tarot deck would have to be something very unique and appealing to have even a slim chance of succeeding. Lupa Greenwolf’s Tarot of Bones crowdfunding Indiegogo campaign hit its goal in less than 100 hours. The deck isn’t yet created, but the campaign page shows a few photos, and one mock up of what it will look like. From these visuals, it easy to see why…

As a gentle antidote to the fear and hostility that dominate the news, the Page of Cups comes calling. As you may know, the Court cards of the Tarot are neither as dramatic and spiritual as the Major Arcana’s big life lessons, nor as pragmatic or general as the actions, moods, and energies represented in the Pips (the Ace through Ten cards). Instead, they are much more “people oriented,” and may represent aspects of…

The Queen of Cups has been compared to the mystical, beautiful High Priestess, and it is not a far stretch to consider her the real-life equivalent. As a Court card, of course, she is usually an actual person in your life, or some aspect of you, yourself. Although she is kind and empathetic, she is no wimp.

    Alison Leigh Lilly
    14 Apr 2015 | 7:50 am
    In the days of the ancient Celts, a devotee might have honored the gods of her people with a votive object — a torc, a piece of intricately-wrought jewelry, a small statue of a god or goddess, a bent silver coin — given in offering to the clear-running waters of a river or wellspring, or deposited in the murky waters of a marsh at a dedicated sacred site. In the same way, a warrior might have offered up his sword or shield, ritually broken to render it useless or perhaps forged specially to be a sacrifice, never to be used in battle. But those days are gone. Now, when I walk along…

As I see it, the old ones like Ra and Zeus and the river dragons of China all are immortal beings that are still a part of this world, but roam it like middle management, never getting any acknowledgement for the work they still do. We call them to help us and then they go back to their work, kinda like a waiter. In a “we call them and they come” mentality. Or somewhat slaves to our…

I should probably answer this question with a modest, “No.” Especially if I don’t want to piss off any Trad Witches, some of whom no doubt have spent years studying various medieval texts detailing the practices of cunning-folk and witch-trial testimonies about various dealings with faery cats, demon rats and otherworldly toads.

I lit more candles. I filled my room with light. I sang her praises into the heart of each flame. Night after night, I worked her name with my lips until it was worn and clumsy, just a collection of…

    Several students from the Simple Daily Practise master class have asked for further guidance on how to connect with their Spirit Helpers, in particular what my personal approach is.   Naturally we are never fully disconnected on a psychic level, when I refer to connecting it’s more of a case of tuning in deliberately when we want to.   I am often struck by the style beginners take when they first begin to call on their Spirit Helpers. Many want to put on their best behaviour so as not to upset or offend anyone.   There is no hierarchical divide between you and your Spirit…

    The rich and multidimensional universe of which we are a part, allows for a variety of life forms.   In the English language we easily interchange the word “Spirit” as the fifth element with the essence or inspiration of something. So we use different names to differentiate between different types of spirits like angel, muse, elemental, archetype, god and goddess.   Essentially a spirit (in the context of another life form) is a living blueprint or energy pattern, a sentient being in non-physical form.   Spirit Animals or Animal Messengers A spirit animal comes to you via…

    17 Mar 2015 | 2:11 am
    Every year in March and September the sun crosses over Earth’s equator for what we know as the equinox to occur. On an energy level this is opens up a portal so potent that it can be felt twenty-four hours before and after the cosmic event. This energy is available for anyone to access should you wish to.   The equinox marks a balanced still point where dark and light, day and night are almost equal in length across the globe. Thus the equinox marks a natural turning point because from this Quarter Day onward, daylight either increases or decreases with a correlating shift in night…

    Several students from the Simple Daily Practise master class have asked for further guidance on how to connect with their Spirit Helpers, in particular what my personal approach is.   Naturally we are never fully disconnected on a psychic level, when I refer to connecting it’s more of a case of tuning in deliberately when we want to.   I am often struck by the style beginners take when they first begin to call on their Spirit Helpers. Many want to put on their best behaviour so as not to upset or offend anyone.   There is no hierarchical divide between you and your Spirit…
  • Spirit Animal, Power Animal or Totem Animal?

    The rich and multidimensional universe of which we are a part, allows for a variety of life forms.   In the English language we easily interchange the word “Spirit” as the fifth element with the essence or inspiration of something. So we use different names to differentiate between different types of spirits like angel, muse, elemental, archetype, god and goddess.   Essentially a spirit (in the context of another life form) is a living blueprint or energy pattern, a sentient being in non-physical form.   Spirit Animals or Animal Messengers A spirit animal comes to you via…

    In the previous post I revealed ways you can prevent overwhelm by shielding against taking on the energy of others that doesn’t serve you, how to release it and move it out of your system. In this post you will gain a deeper understanding about how it works  as well as look at ways you can perceive your empath abilities as a gift and not a hideous burden.   If it seems like there are more empaths around these days, the reason why is that more people are becoming or are already born sensitive and in tune to subtle energies in unprecedented numbers ~ kind of like someone turning up the…

    In the previous post we explored the various signs that indicate you are an empath. In this post I will show you ways you can prevent overwhelm by shielding against taking on the energy of others that doesn’t serve you, how to release it and move it out of your system.   1. Be Aware of Your Emotions (mood, attitude and feelings) If you woke up in a good mood, got ready for work everything ran smoothly and you happily make your way to work, nothing distinct happens on your way there yet you feel like a thunderstorm when you walk in…   Recognise the mood or sensation is not yours.
  • Things to Do at Equinox

    Every year in March and September the sun crosses over Earth’s equator for what we know as the equinox to occur. On an energy level this is opens up a portal so potent that it can be felt twenty-four hours before and after the cosmic event. This energy is available for anyone to access should you wish to.   The equinox marks a balanced still point where dark and light, day and night are almost equal in length across the globe. Thus the equinox marks a natural turning point because from this Quarter Day onward, daylight either increases or decreases with a correlating shift in night…
