Today’s Tarot: The Magician

Today’s Tarot: The Magician

The Magician card in Tarot has been interpreted many ways by artists over the years. It is always fascinating what symbolism resonates with the artist and how it is transferred onto paper. Here we see the Magician in one of his documented appearances from the Visconti-Sforza deck commissioned and published in 1400s. We see a man dressed in Red, Green and White...

Self-Righteousness is not a Pagan Value

Self-Righteousness is not a Pagan Value

  In Wicca, we understand that everything happens for a reason.  We believe that the Goddess has her own plans, and when things happen that we don’t understand or like, we look for the positive.  We strive to see our lesson in the issue and grow from it. We do not blame others for our problems.  We do not attack those who are different from us, or with...

It was a comparative study on the love goddesses of the Norse, Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians. It was an oral report.

Just die.

Just die.

Facing the abyss.   Nothingness.   All of your life’s works become … merely a memory; and now that active memory is dead. You are now GONE.   The books which extolled your greatness rotted, the monuments eroded, the statues buried in sand.  The very language used to describe your greatness now forgotten by whole societies.   The...
