Back to Basics: Imbolc
by Robin Fennelly [Wvox Sponsor] [1,910 reads]
Imbolc is here! The Witch’s Wheel has turned another notch and we welcome the opportunity to turn the heat up, step into the warmth of home and hearth and connect more deeply to those growing fires that are preparing the way for the seeding of Spring’s growth at the next turn. This year I have decided to go back to the basics in my series of writings for the Sabbats of the Great Wheel. Sometimes the most powerful revelations can be found ... [more]
Seeker Advice From a Coven Leader
by Jessi [1,742 reads]
In addition to my role as a High Priestess, which I have proudly and lovingly fulfilled through many coven incarnations over the past ten years, I also try to do my part when I can to contribute to the local Pagan community. One of my offerings is an online networking group I started back in 2004, which is intended to serve as a resource to facilitate networking between local Pagan groups of all types and seekers looking for a group to join. Rece... [more]
Brigid of the Ponderosa
by Sparrow [1,409 reads]
My partner often makes fun of my Goddess. He likes to giggle and poke fun that She's become the poster child for certain Feminist Pagan movements (I wasn't aware that She participated in such things) . Like some male Pagans, he has trouble, occasionally, truly connecting with a feminine deity. Many female Pagans have that problem with male deities. Without realizing it, I had that problem in reverse. I was not connecting with the masculine traits... [more]
Magick is No Illusion
by Rev. WD Allan [1,249 reads]
“The appearance of things changes according to the emotions; and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and the beauty are really in ourselves.” – Kahlil GibranThe Magick that we seek out in order to enhance our lives and to adapt our worldly concerns shifts constantly and is ultimately toned by exactly this same effect. It’s no oddity that you will often hear the complaint that no matter how hard the effort or the details ... [more]
- The Three Centers of Paganism by John Halstead [1,642 reads]
I have found a useful tool for thinking about the Pagan community. Most attempts to describe contemporary Paganism use lists of beliefs or practices. Some of these lists attempt to be comprehensive, while others do not. One problem with these lists is that they inevitably focus on those elements that the person making the list wants to emphasize. Consequently, large portions of the Pagan community are excluded.Another common way of unders... [more]
- The Gods of My Heart by Cauldron of Fire [982 reads]
The God, as the infant Sun, is born from the Goddess at Yule, the shortest day of the year. As the days grow, so grows the Sun and the God. At Imbolc, the festival of waxing light, the Goddess renews Herself, as life stirs in the belly of the earth. When day and night are equal, the Goddess, in Her maiden aspect, dances across the land at Ostara, causing the flowers to sprout. The God ascends in the first of Spring from the underworld wit...

- The Ancient Use of God/Goddess Surnames by Jack Campbell [1,044 reads]
The power of a God’s Epithet or Surname is all in how you see your God or Goddess and maybe your own faith. What are surnames? Why were they used and why you could use them now? Most major Greek Gods have surnames. It was a name given to that God or Goddess to focus on an area of choice. The Goddess Athena has around 100 different surnames. While Athena was well known as the Goddess of Wisdom and War, she also has many other surnames. When speaki... [more]
- Keepers of Ancient Mysteries (.K.A.M.) by Coven of Andredsweald [1,328 reads]
© 1987, Keepers of the Ancient Mysteries ( .K.A.M. ) Often Traditional Wiccans are asked to describe our religion and beliefs for interested people, who may or may not have confused us with other Pagan religions, with inversions of Christian/Islamic religions like Satanism, or with purely magical traditions with no religious base. There is a lot of flexibility in the ways that we describe ourselves, and one characteristic of Wicca ... [more]
