Observations for a MidSummer's Eve
by Bran th' Blessed [Wvox Sponsor] [1,334 reads]
The old ones knew only two seasons: the cold winter when animals had to be sheltered and food stores fostered until the first thaw, and the warm summer when the animals could be put out to pasture and the fields could be planted—which is why we call this solstice Midsummer (as well as Litha) and its opposite Midwinter (as well as Yule) . Our lives are intrinsically different in these warm days than in the cold ones behind and ahead of us. Except ... [more]
The Consort: Silent Partner or Hidden in Plain Sight?
by Sorbus [1,413 reads]
Wiccan mythology is based on a duality of divine presences. There is a Great Goddess who presides over the growth cycle, love, and magic. Her companion is a pastoral God.

Being a Wiccan, homeschooling, stay-at-home mom is like living in another world. Very few people understand my lifestyle, but that’s fine with me. I do not wish for everyone to “get” my family or me. But I do expect them to offer me the same courtesy and respect that they would to anyone else. I also love my city. Living in St. Louis has had its ups and downs. We have a nice Pagan population here and though I have left a couple of times I... [more]
