A HALF A MILLION PAGE HITS!
|NEW Contact a Witch & Events... |
Major Revision 8/25/97: We have just completed a major rewrite of our Witches & Events pages and are thrilled to announce the launch of our new Witches of the World section. We have combined our Contact a Witch pages with our "Circles & Events" section AND broke out all the information by State/Province. WHY? Contact a Witch had become too damn big to feature 1, 400 names on a couple of pages and many browsers freaked out and crashed. We take this opportunity to offer you some add-ons to your listings... Very soon (in the next couple of days) you will be able to quickly add your website, a brief personal profile and your sun sign to YOUR listing on YOUR State page. Future plans include the addition of "modules" for government contacts, Witch shops and many other pieces of critical information related to YOUR AREA... WOTW is just another effort to help unify our community.
| New Essays, New Comments... Now Up!|
A Quest for Unity: The initial response to the surveys has been incredible and we'd like to thank all that have participated so far. We have just posted the second wave of essay responses from part II (sorry but due to size we can't post them all) and many from part III... The second survey was indeed a tough one but the responses were enlightening to say the least. This week, as promised, we offer the official "Quest for unity Graphics Collection" for YOU to loot for YOUR Website. WVOX would like to thank our mystery artist for her incredible work. Many have asked why we are doing this and we now have a Unity Quest FAQ page to help clear up some of the confusion. Hot New Unity Pages include: Unity F.A.Q.

AutumnCrystal Greywing's Manor-
House for Wiccan Studies
I love this site! It is laid out to represent a house where you can explore the rooms in search of knowledge. AutumnCrystal's site contains Wicca Basics, a Book of Shadows, Herbs and Herb Lore, Recommended Reading, Spells and Rituals, and Links. She also has a survey for you to fill out, and she tells us of her future projects and rooms that will be added to the Manor-House.
The most impressive portion of the site so far is her extensive Herbals section. This includes Herbal Preparations, Definitions of Medicinal Actions, Magickal Correspondences, Featured Herb from a New England Wiccan's Garden, Previously Featured Herbs, and a Bibliography from her extensive research.
There's so much to read and find at this site, you must stop by and check it out. There's even pleasant reading music in the background that wont crash your Web Browser (that gets BIG points with me!).
Great Job AutumnCrystal! We look forward to your upcoming additions!. - Lady Alexcia

HOT SITE: Atho's Pagan Files Collection...
Since we listed this site here last week the Pagan online community has been a buzz about the gold mine of Wiccan info that it contains... A real treasure chest of Wiccan files from the bbs days of the late 80's and early 90's. This incredible site offers a collection of over 1800 text files on Wicca, Paganism, Druidism, Asatru, and Shamanism. It includes files on other related topics as well, including Filk songs, the SCA, and more. It also has a complete public domain version of the Alexandrian Book of Shadows (compiled from published sources) in HTML format. They would be happy to accept submissions of a high quality of writing and scholarship on selected topics.
Anne's Case update - She needs our help...
The Witches' Voice posted an article in February about one of our own being persecuted and prosecuted by the State of Minnesota while doing her best to aid and advise a troubled teen. She was framed, and very badly. The lovely lady's name is Anne. All Anne desired to do was to keep this young man out of gangs, away from drugs, and to achieve his utmost in all he attempted. Her only crime was to have cared. Anne spent time in jail because of these false accusations. Her children would have been taken from their home if she had remained in jail one more day. Anne's house was searched, violated by cops looking for whatever a "Satanist" uses. Her altar space was touched, things moved around, and everything gone through.-including her jars of herbs and oils and bath salts! Another violation of her rights.

YOU can HELP Save 90 Very Large Cats...
This just in from Patrick V. Recently I caught a news segment about a gentleman in Riverside California who has a compound in which he has for the past 20+ years retired large cats that were from the movies, circuses etc. Unfortunately due to a new tract home development and zoning law changes he is forced to move the cats. The problem lies in the fact that he is a nonprofit organization and does not have the funds to move the animals, so the County of Riverside has given him until October to move the cats or they will be put to sleep. I think it would be a travesty to put down 90 animals that for their entire life were there for our entertainment. Please check out their website at http://home.earthlink.net/~tigerrescue Blessed Be - Patrick V.
