A Thread in the Tapestry of Witchcraft
by Crick [Wvox Sponsor] [205 reads]
Whenever I hear the urban legend that witchcraft died out and then was recently re-discoveredÖ well, I have to shake my head in disbelief. Such a mindset digresses from the expansion of witchcraft, which has been in existence since the dawn of humankind. And which continues to flourish to this very day. There are many threads that lend themselves to the tapestry of witchcraft. And for one thread to claim to be the weaver is very naÔve. In... [more]
On Wiccan Magick, Theurgy, Thaumaturgy and Setting Expectations
by Coven of Andredsweald [177 reads]
Sooner or later somebody will want you to do tricks. The pitch is usually a little subtler, but the gist will be clear. There's always the prurient curiosity of acquaintances, but more importantly students often come to the Craft seeking or building on an expanded view of what's possible. I've seen otherwise excellent Coveners drift away in covert disappointment because, on some unspoken level, they expected to be able to regularly "call spirits ... [more]
Between the Worlds and Sacred Space Conference 2015
by Caroline Kenner [Wvox Sponsor] [2,381 reads]
The Sacred Space Conference is a labor of love. We work all year to manifest a four day conference on metaphysics, magick, and mysticism. This year, our 25th conference was held in conjunction with the 6th Between the Worlds, a bigger and more prestigious... [more]
Choosing to Write a Shadow Book
by Ceru [2,606 reads]
I started keeping a spiritual notebook when I was about fourteen years old. Mostly it recorded my dreams, thoughts and sketches from nature. The book itself was just an old record book I found in a drawer. It had three hundred pages and took over a year for me to fill it up. I didnít really think of the book as magickal but I did keep it close, private and imagined that maybe a future child would find it and learn something. Reasons To... [more]
Historiolae: The Spell Within the Story
by Jack Campbell [1,469 reads]
We donít tell enough stories these days. When a child is sick, we give him/her medicine and tell him/her to lie down and watch TV, hoping they will then fall asleep. Even as a couple, a wife or husband similarly leaves the other to recover while lying down on the couch or in bed with a TV on. Thereís nothing wrong with this, but there is also something we miss: the telling of the tale. People like telling stories. We enjoy the attention w... [more]
- My Concept Of Grey by MoonWillow WhiteStorm [1,446 reads]
Lately I have been thinking on what balance means to me. I find myself using a 'grey zone' reference quite often. I don't like extremes. Funny thing is though- grey is basically defined by the extremes around it. The image of a spectrum is an odd thing. It always seems to manifest in a scale. 'Light' or 'white' on one side, 'dark' or 'black' on the other, and a myriad of greys in between. But this 'slider scale' seems inherently wrong to me. It's... [more]

Breaking the Mother Goose Code: How a Fairy Tale Character Fooled the World for 300 Years
Author: Jeri Studebaker
Category: Goddess Level: All
REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS
I did not really expect to be convinced by Jerri Studebakerís book about finding signs of ancient Goddess worship in fairy tales. Iím just not the sort of person who is easily persuaded by much, and the sleight of hand history of Dr Anne Ross, and the chicanery of Robert Graves have left me resistant, to say the least. Iím very wary of circular logic, too. Go out looking for evidence of sacrifice and youíll see it any time thereís a dead person. Go out looking for Goddess survivals and you can all too easily infer them into anything with breasts.
I ended up ... Impressions: 16,627
