Re: Far Right Paganism

That's quite a claim, do you have anything to support it? What particular pagan path would they assumedly have followed?

Re: Girls Only! Really, guys don't open this!

Everyone always wants to increase not decrease. I'm pretty large and I hate it. Blame the current Western society & culture, according to which a large bust is the best & most desirable thing there is (one is constantly bombarded with these type of messages in ads, tv etc.), and one's femininity is...

Re: Is Magic a License to Get Even?

I'm not sure I understand the OP question - nothing is a "license" for anything, as such, but yes, I believe human beings do have the right to (try to) get even if they so feel, whether it be by using magick or any other means. As I've understood, Wicca mostly denies this, thus I cannot consider mys...

Re: Girls Only! Really, guys don't open this!

I know this is an old thread, but still quite relevant ;) Since you were talking about breast size, I just wanted to post some useful related advice: most women actually use a wrong bra size, most "ordinary" charts have a very weird sizing (too large band, too small cup size) - here's a calculator t...

Re: What are some of the issues that Pagans face?

I guess this need elaboration. The idea that Wicca is separated from traditional witchcraft comes from Robert Cochrane, who incidentally also coined the term "Gardnerians". (At the time he meant this as an insult but now Gardnerians use it to describe themselves, lol.) From his coven, the Clan of T...

Re: What are some of the issues that Pagans face?

Ok, I think you actually did answer my question, though, Lady_Lilith. ;) Also, I found this blog post by someone who considers herself Wiccan and practices dark magick, which clarified the matter for me a lot - I will post it here as IMO it's very enlightening. (Possibly it's by you, as you're both ...

Re: What is Your Element

The Zodiac signs have changed?! This is the first I've heard of it, I admit :shock: (I guess that just wasn't ever a news item where Iive...) I just googled it quickly, and if this new sign Ophiuchus really applies to all those born between Nov 29 and Dec 17, then that's me!! :shock: In any case, I'...

Re: Harry Potter & Pop Culture Magic -- Discussion Thread

I'm fully convinced the Pottermore sorting is faulty - it stubbornly tried to put me into Slytherin ;) (So obviously doesn't even take your own preferences into account, like it should.) Actually, I opened an account there a few times as I was upset about being sorted into Slytherin, and got very co...

Re: Astrology sign and connecting with deities

The ruler of your rising sign is considered your Chart Ruler, and may also resonate with you. Can I ask what is a Chart Ruler? I'm intrigued. My rising sign is Libra & my moon sign is Cancer, and in many cases they resonate with me more than my actual sun sign, Sagittarius. (Though I do have severa...

Re: What are some of the issues that Pagans face?

When I read about people "In order to be Wiccan you have to believe...." I always am thinking "STOP right there.". Wicca is NOT dogmatic and these people are not trained, and are inserting their original Christian orthodoxy (right belief) stuff onto Neo-Wicca. I would beware of any such person(s) b...

Re: What are some of the issues that Pagans face?

Could you maybe elaborate on that a bit, SpiritTalker - did you mean that my "eye for eye, tooth for tooth" philosophy (which IRL is much more complicated than that, of course, that's just a very simplified version) is acting from fear...? As I don't see it that way, but that's why I'm asking ;)

Re: What are some of the issues that Pagans face?

Possible? Heh heh of course it's possible!! There is no authority but yourself. I think it depends on what definition of Wiccan you're using, traditional or modern. If you're initiated to a traditional coven then you'd follow the coven guidelines in group matters. Not all covens recognize harm-none...

Re: What are some of the issues that Pagans face?

NW94: you're right. The "harm none" isn't even a rule. It's advice. Valiente specifically said it's not a call to be a pacifist. People have twisted it over the decades. Misinterpreted Wiccan rede, is not a call for pacifism. Three fold law is also misinterpreted. And don't get me started on karma....
