  • Empathy: Some Thoughts - Gentle Deer Lion Tamer [Witchvox Sponsor]

    "Empathy... is not sympathy. Sympathy is a way of reacting to someone who is suffering. Empathy is feeling that suffering as if it were you own. In it's simplest form, it is flinching when someone slams his finger in a door. At it ... Posted: April 4th. 2010   Views: 2,855   - [ Full Article ]

  • Are You a Pagan Individual? - Crick [Witchvox Sponsor]

    When one looks about the Neo Pagan community, one common factor that stands out is the constant jockeying of certain individuals/groups to be the learning curve for all other pagans. To my mind this is an attempt to validate ones ... Posted: March 28th. 2010   Views: 3,533   - [ Full Article ]

  • Supportive Practices of the Craft - Iain Quicksilver [Witchvox Sponsor]

  • Bewitching - Bob Makransky

    Witchcraft is a craft. It’s something you learn. Witches usually do have supernormal powers. However, these powers are learned.

  • Personal Alchemy and the Value of Failed Magick - Once Schooled, Now Solo Mage

    The other day I was speaking to a friend regarding the result of ritual work. We had both been encountering some radical results in response to our individual practices and we noted with a wry sense of irony that sometimes we get ... Posted: March 21st. 2010   Views: 3,768   - [ Full Article ]

  • Changing of the Guards : Our Movement From Solstice to Equinox - PanSpiritus

    Was Imbolc the old winter solstice? I ask this question completely aware that many megaliths were fashioned to intentionally record “cross-quarter days”.This speculation is not entirely a mystical story of connect-the-dots ... Posted: March 21st. 2010   Views: 2,808   - [ Full Article ]

  • I'm Not Proud To Be Pagan - Bronwen Forbes [Witchvox Sponsor]

    In a previous piece here on Witchvox, I related the story of how I dared to show up at a hot, Southern Pagan Pride event in *gasp* shorts and a T-shirt rather than the apparent requisite flowing skirt, glitter and fairy wings.

  • Saying the "P" Word - Temple of the Spiral Path Administrator

    Not too long ago, in the context of a charitable association I have through the coven that I co-lead, I was invited to a “thank- you” cocktail party. The experience inspired some bizarre behavior on my part. Let me explain. ... Posted: March 14th. 2010   Views: 4,497   - [ Full Article ]

  • Defense of the Faith - Stephanie

    Wicca is, without doubt, the greatest threat to the establishment of the Christian church today. I predict that, given time, the views and the points that the Wicca bring forth to argue and defend their own faith, will, without fa ... Posted: March 14th. 2010   Views: 4,266   - [ Full Article ]

  • Fire Ants and Ice Water: An Unexpected Lesson - Olbec [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Do you remember when it finally “clicked”? I clearly remember those tidbits of delightful self-discovery I made the first weeks after setting out on my Pagan path. It was so liberating to release all my puritanical Christian bagga ... Posted: March 14th. 2010   Views: 2,514   - [ Full Article ]

  • The Path of Wisdom - Crick [Witchvox Sponsor]

    As I walk along an unexplored trail through the forest, I take notice that there are no obstructions in my way. There are no brambles waiting to snag me with their thorns.

  • On Becoming a Crone - Belladonna SilverRayne

    Why is it so hard to admit we're growing older? Why do we fight it tooth and nail? Society and the media as a whole, wants to show aging as something to be fought against, to be put off as long as possible. Why? Look at any sit-co ... Posted: March 7th. 2010   Views: 3,973   - [ Full Article ]

  • A Pagan Physician’s Perspective the Ethics of Healthcare - Dragonstorm

    I was a doctor before I became a Pagan. Or maybe I should say before I KNEW I was a Pagan. In fact I grew up with a Christian upbringing. A beloved family member of mine, also a doctor, asked the question many years ago, “How can ... Posted: March 7th. 2010   Views: 3,188   - [ Full Article ]

  • High Magic, Low Magic: Designations Help Define Our Styles - Treasach

    I personally find designations handy. They express no limit, only a specialization.

  • Native American Religion - Gentle Deer Lion Tamer [Witchvox Sponsor]

    What do we mean when we speak of Native American religion? Unlike Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam, it has no single founder. Unlike Judaism, it is not the ongoing story of a people with a strong sense of their own identi ... Posted: February 28th. 2010   Views: 4,719   - [ Full Article ]

  • The Work Ethics of Magic - Crick [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Every once in awhile I will take a look at what is being offered on the Internet in relation to paganism and as usual I come away slightly amused.

  • Abraxas: God or Demon? - Crick [Witchvox Sponsor]

    When one mentions the word “Abrasax” there are oftentimes, conflicting views which arise. To some he was seen as a God, to others as a demon, and yet to others as an amalgamation of both.

  • Understanding Magickal Royalty: Witch Queen / Witch King - Lady Abigail [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Recently during one of my classes on the history within our magickal traditions, a question came up about levels and degrees of hierarchy found in Witchcraft and Wicca.
