Re: Dianic Witchcraft

Well, thank you firebirdflys, for your efforts and link. I shall continue to commune with the Dianic thread extant in the universe and through La Bello Pelagrino alone and accompanied by that which called to me all those years ago. If something more amenable should manifest itself in the interim the...

Re: Dianic Witchcraft

Aha! This has come to be accepted as the best view into the world of Aradia. Present day adherents of streheria in northern Italy do take exception to much of the "deciphering" of the lore covered however. The use of the term "devil" is due to Leyland's own colouring of the passages he purportedly h...

Re: Dianic Witchcraft

In my experience, each deity has something intrinsic to him or herself, that will resonate to different individuals regardless of gender. Some deities may be more male or female oriented, but exclusivity would tend to create imbalance. Snow How true. One cannot dismiss just how many sites and organ...

Re: Dianic Witchcraft

Can you be a male and worship Diana? I see no reason why not. Aradia was the "representative" of Diana, and she was foremost the champion of the common folk (pagani), witches (not just stregheria) and all who follow Diana. I also see Aradia as a contemporary of both Ganesha and Quan Yin, the parall...

The Dark Goddess

I would invite members who can relate to the Dark Goddess (in whatever form you perceive) to share your own feelings on this, or just to reflect on similar.

Re: Popular Traditions

On strega, I think it's impossible to verify Leland's claims.(I am not sure Aradia actually existed.) But the "tradition" now, Stregheria, is totally something Raven Grimassi made based in part on Aradia. BTW and Gardnerian are usually used interchangeably, this is the first time I have seen them s...

Re: Dianic Witchcraft

Greetings all! So I am curious if anyone out there is familiar with Dianic witchcraft? More specifically, if anyone knows about the different Dianic Schools that I am checking out? One is called The Apple Branch and is run by Bendis, then there is The Temple Of Diana run by Ruth Barrett, and Z Buda...

Re: Ravens and Crows

Firebird... thank you for posting this, Raven lore is strong and long lived and will continue thanks to good works from people like you. On our, and adjacent property nest dozens of large crows who I first mistook for ravens, they talk to me each day when I walk the dog past them as they settle on t...

Re: Why ravens?

Welcome. Ravens have an intrinsic role in the cultures of the Pacific Northwest. The Raven is the Guardian of Mt. Ranier, and I suspect, much of the volcanic chain that is Yellowstone National Park and the Cascades. Snow Hi Snow and Spirit. "Why Ravens" was a rhetorical poser. My use of this was to...
