  • Ramblings of a Pagan Guy: Answering the Call - Ashka Ryo [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Intro: Over the years, I have found that many a person has this strange idea when it comes to the Pagan faiths. It is as if as soon as one converts, they [the new pagans] are thrown back to the Middle Ages. People also have this r ... Posted: May 13th. 2012   Views: 3,089   - [ Full Article ]

  • Coming Out of the Broom Closet as a Pagan - Celtic Pagan 21

    My life began in the late 1980’s as the oldest of three children. For the first couple of years of my life, I was not a member of any religion and I did not even know what ‘religion’ was. Then suddenly at the young age of three, m ... Posted: May 13th. 2012   Views: 2,804   - [ Full Article ]

  • On Gender Roles and Witchcraft - SonneillonV

    I want to talk about something that's been bothering me. When we talk about neopaganism, the giant in the room is generally Wicca - it's the most well known religion under the neopagan umbrella, the one that gets the most ... Posted: May 6th. 2012   Views: 6,218   - [ Full Article ]

  • Evil Sex: Homophobia and the Bible - Magaly Guerrero

    Has anyone ever asked you why you insist on getting involved with groups, belief systems, subcultures… you don’t belong to or apparently have nothing to do with? I’ve heard that question in regards to mental illness, Jesus, child ... Posted: May 6th. 2012   Views: 3,841   - [ Full Article ]

  • Go Slow Now: A Letter - Paladin of the Waxing Moon

    Merry Meet, Friend, I’m surprised that a single thing, like a standard television commercial, can throw me into a magickal decision that changed me. Well, I’m uncertain if it’s a change, exactly, or more likely, it was jus ... Posted: May 6th. 2012   Views: 2,988   - [ Full Article ]

  • Dreaming of a Magickal Garden - Luna

  • The "F Word" in the Craft - Seba O'Kiley [Witchvox Sponsor]

    As of yet, I haven’t saddled up beside a hearty Pagan without eventually hearing: “I just don’t have enough faith.” Now…. we don’t tell each other that right away, not during meetings or festivals or at the local Wal-Mart. Naw, th ... Posted: April 22nd. 2012   Views: 4,846   - [ Full Article ]

  • Public or Private, Are You Fully Embracing Your Pagan Faith? - Rev. Omi [Witchvox Sponsor]

    In my opinion, finding the Pagan path is an extremely personal decision. If you choose to be a participant in a group, that is fine, however, worshiping as a solitary practitioner is just as appropriate. What is not correct is any ...

  • The Deities As Symbols - Althalos90

    Large numbers of pagans believe in the God and Goddess as literal beings.

  • The People You Meet on the Pagan Path - MissElphie

    There are always people who leave a mark along our path in our Pagan path. Those people who supported us and who taught us things that, probably, we wouldn't have learned in any other way.

  • I'm Not Clergy and You Can't Make Me - Deborah Castellano

    So, it's been super fun living with me lately as I am constantly on a verge of massive self-discovery and/or a nervous breakdown.

  • In Support of a Pagan Laity - Caer Jones

    “Clergy” is a loaded term for any faith, but it becomes especially problematic when coming at it from a Pagan perspective.Definitions vary, but for me the difference between “layperson” and “clergy” is fairly basic. Most p ... Posted: April 15th. 2012   Views: 2,838   - [ Full Article ]

  • Circle Stones - Sephiriel

    I never realized the importance of rocks and crystals when I started on my path. Not really. I collected them for all sorts of reasons: they where pretty, or full of energy. Then as the years progressed, in my studies of the stone ... Posted: April 8th. 2012   Views: 2,620   - [ Full Article ]

  • Wicca and Paganism Beyond the Stars - Luna

    A quick disclaimer about this next essay: this is pure speculation on my part. I have no idea what the future may hold for our planet or humanity, as we know it. In fact, much of what inspired me to write this was much of the scie ... Posted: April 8th. 2012   Views: 2,500   - [ Full Article ]

  • Finding Resources - Lacran

    Like many people, I found paganism a little later in life. A friend who wanted to show me it wasn’t all about cursing people and creating fear introduced me to it. Like many of the young, I’m very good with computers and turned to ... Posted: April 1st. 2012   Views: 2,455   - [ Full Article ]
