Rebirth By Fire: A Love Letter to Mama Maui and Lady Pele
by Faythe [820 reads]
When I moved to Maui two years ago, I knew that the island would change my life. Something in that land spoke to me, and that was why I moved there. It had nothing to do with the fact that it's a tropical island (which was quite nice, of course) , and everything to do with the fact that I was in a place in my life where I felt lost, without direction, despite my spirituality, despite the boyfriend I had at the time, despite the fanciful dreams of...

Blowing Bubbles with the Goddess
by Stephen Firebird [617 reads]
I have been reading Witchvox articles for a long time and have found great inspiration and insight from them. As several other people have noted, every time they started to write an article they discovered something better written in the archives. After several discussions with friends, I realized that my relationship with my Patron Goddess Lakshmi is much different than normally discussed. There are two elements I have yet to see in print, so I’... [more]
An Alternative Conception of Divine Reciprocity
by John Halstead [2,495 reads]
The most common understanding of divine reciprocity in the context of Paganism is the idea that the gods will grant worshipers material or practical well-being in exchange for something, like worship or offerings or oaths. But there is another conception of divine reciprocity. It is rooted in the notion of the interdependence of all things — where “all things” includes the gods (whatever they are) . It contrasts with the conception of a go... [more]
- The Evolution of Thought Forms by Whistling Squirrel [566 reads]
When Goddess began enlightening me to the beauty of Her world, I was but a lost soul. I was angry for several years at the thought of the injustices wrought by a religion that was supposed to teach of love and acceptance. I began searching for others who thought the way I did and was ecstatic to find them. One evening, I decided to dedicate myself to the Sacred Feminine, the Goddess and spread the happiness that I had found in Her arms. It was in... [more]
- Daughters of The Moon: Running With The Crones by Merideth Allyn [841 reads]
“Ah Avalon, Land of the cooling mists, Where spirit and magic meet.Ah Avalon, Land of the swirling mists, Where Her embrace silences fear, And frees the mystical feminine.Ah Avalon, Land of the silvery mists, Where Her magic flows with spirit, And feminine mysteries are revealed.”--by Anne Pelloth (one of the cofounders of Daughters of the Moon) Last year, for one hundred women, the Call of ...

- Sacred Space Conference by Chase [657 reads]
On Friday, I had the pleasure of attending my first large Pagan event, Sacred Space Conference. It was conveniently held in a hotel only 30 minutes from my office, so in the morning, I packed my bag for work and for the event. For the first time in my life, I found myself asking questions like, “Should I bring my tarot cards, my runes, or both?” and “Should I wear my Thor’s hammer pendant outside or inside my dress?” The notion delighted me....

- Becoming Wiccan: What I Never Expected by Lunette [828 reads]
It all started when I was a child, really. I was an angry little bugger and had no control over anything. One time a kid got me so upset I just stood up and threw a desk and walked out (note that was in the first grade when this happened) . But as I got older, I calmed down more and more even though the bulling I endured for “being different” didn’t stop until about the seventh grade. I always had an intense interest in the supernatural a... [more]
- The Fear of Witchcraft by Crick [Wvox Sponsor] [723 reads]
I have often wondered why there is so much fear and hatred of witches and witchcraft in general. For generations, there have been negative and misleading interpretations of witches and the path of witchcraft. And it continues to this very day in a society where folks have had ample time to overcome such misunderstandings and fear of such a viable and interesting path. Witchcraft has been in existence since the beginning of humankind. It c... [more]
- Magic in Sentences by Jessica Marie Baumgartner [542 reads]
My beliefs are what make me. I am a witch and I worship nature. That is where I draw every aspect of my being. Working with others of many different backgrounds is potentially the most important element in focusing my energies. If I can mix and mingle with a multitude of individuals and still contain my own spark of spirit, I find insurmountable inspiration. Over the past few years, I have experienced myself falling into a writing career.... [more]

- Susan Davis by Lady Shaylyn [440 reads]
“It was at the early age of 5 that Sue accidentally summoned Beliel. When asked what her demands were to release him, she declared she required several new crafting tools and a properly filled occult and spiritual library. Beliel, of course, had to sheepishly admit he was now just a humble gardener in England, and not capable of granting such things. Her glare was formidable, but he eventually bargained her down to a nice box of chocolates – if s... [more]
