Re: Queer wicca/witchraft?

We mostly know that Paganism work under a generalisation of binary couples. We have our Gods and Goddesses, Sun and Moon, and Elements/Cardinal points that work well with and against each other - amongst many other associations. The main idea is that there is balance, there is union in everything w...

Re: Prayer beads

Having an actual set of beads allows for a few things. In some traditions it's used to count chants without actually having to focus attention on counting. For example, 108 is used in many eastern traditions. The significance as to why can vary, but it can reflect a specific number of important scri...

Re: Feeling godless?

I'm looking more into eastern gods because Taoism and qigong really 'click' with me and make me feel grounded, but I worry about not being accepted by a god apart from my lineage because someone told me they will shun you in the afterlife if you weren't born into their culture. To be blunt, whoever...

Re: First Book of Shadows

Personally, I like spells I write myself, but was wondering if getting a prewritten one to start would be better for learning purposes? I know you've already picked one, so this is a bit late, but just in case someone else comes along later with the same question... I often find prewritten books te...

Re: Duotheism and Polythiesm

Basically, I’m wondering how polythiesm works, do polythiests believe in the two masculine and feminine energies, in ‘the’ Goddess and God, with the individual Gods and Goddesses existing too, seperate from them? Or are they seen as different interpretations of the Goddess and God? Or are ‘the’ God...

Re: Which do You Prefer? Tarot Cards or Oracle Cards?

For cards, I prefer to read lenormand or playing cards. I have a few tarot decks, but the imagery just doesn't really do it for me. Although I did just recently get a crow tarot deck, which has been interesting. I do also enjoy a plant and animal deck I have, but for me it doesn't give detailed enou...

Re: Question about sleep, tobacco, and nicotine

I don't smoke cigarettes, but I do vape and use a lot of nicotine and I realized that when I do so and go to settle down to sleep for example I'll begin seeing visions of sorts? Eyes closed, suddenly it's like shapes are dancing across my vision and I'll begin to feel things poking and prodding at ...

Re: Are Dreams Real?

The reason I originally started developing this theory is that all humans seem to have the same kinds of experiences when they dream; the same dream symbols and dream structures and all that jazz; aside from perhaps being in black and white or full color (I've heard some people dream in black and w...

Re: Vernal Eqx & Full Moon 2019

Those pagan Christians. Seems to me if Jesus was resurrected it would have been a DATE. I do not understand the moveable part. Because it's not so much a pagan thing, as a Jewish thing. The date of the resurrection is based on Passover. The Hebrew calendar is lunisolar as a majority of older calend...

Re: Ostara information and rituals

Even the way in which "Easter" is arrived at is Pagan in origin, calculated from the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Equinox. Passover y'all. Easter is calculated the way it is because of Passover . It's not really because of paganism. Christians actually didn't just slap Easter wh...

Re: Cell Phones

Like any new technology, cell phones seem to be blamed for a lot of things. I mean really, people complained about how ease of access to books was going to ruin everything. Kids don't know how to write on slate anymore, and it's terrible. Studies have shown that electric lights mess up our sleep cyc...

Reincarnation vs Ghosts in Wicca

If you are reincarnated after you die then how are their spirits or Ghosts? I do not believe reincarnation is an instant thing. (Or even necessarily a mandatory thing, to be honest.) I believe in an 'afterlife,' a sort of spiritual counterpart to our physical world. Spirits often go to this world w...

Re: Letting someone know how you feel

For better or worse, the best way to let someone know how you feel about them is to take the mundane approach and tell them. Be it face to face, through a letter, or something like that. Especially if they mean that much to you. Why are you unable to tell them directly?

Re: Homosexuality and wicca

Not to mention Apollo's brother Dionysius.. a suspiciously feminine male youth? There are myths where Dionysos was raised as a girl to avoid Hera's wrath, although he was still eventually found. Not just Dionysos, but classically Apollon as well was often regarded as a fairly feminine deity, althou...
