Arguing with a squirrel

When I started writing this blog, I had a friend, who has been on the blogosphere for some time give me some pointers. I explained to him that I was looking at it as a journal of thoughts that one day I may look onto them and laugh at myself, much in the same way […]

Aliens!

I do come across quite a few different ideas about pagan religions and their gods. A popular theory is that the gods were aliens, as not of this world. Not a far fetched idea, seeing that much observable and natural existing phenomena that are attributed to the work of – or embodiment of – gods that […]

The dark side has no cookies

I written some articles about coven ritual, my thoughts on inclusion, rather than exclusion;  All safe, cosy, happy and merry meet and such with a great powerful circle to keep all the bad stuff out and the good stuff in. But another part of the craft for me is the way of the witch; where […]

Principles and Application

I always found that studying a principle (and not just only in magick), things are easier to understand where you have an analogue at hand. As such, Traditions can be valuable, because often enough they will offer analogies and symbolic examples to accompany a principle. For instance, Wicca is viewed as a polarity based system. A […]

Things you should not do in circle

I originally started this blog with “10 things you should not do in circle” Here are the original 10 things: If you are one of the first to taste the cake and you take a huge bite. leaving the tiniest portion to be passed around the next 10 people. Not funny. Slugging the last bit […]

Please wipe your feet…

Here’s another thing that sparks a good bit of discussion in Wicca: What to leave outside the sacred circle. It’s not a notion that is exclusive to Wicca, I got introduced to the idea many years ago when I invited to attend a sweat lodge with some native american friends. The way it was explained to […]

Wicca and inclusion

Here is an interesting though: how to define an inclusive coven? The first question has to be: what do you define as inclusiveness; what is it that would make you think a coven is not inclusive? Some sort of statement in the BoS? That would be silly, as the introduction to the BoS would normally […]

The Principle of Gender

This post is a follow up on Magick and gender. Quite a few people responded to this on various sources of social media and it seems especially well received by trans and gender fluid people who come across obstacles in working Wicca rituals. I accepted a few invitations to discuss this further and I was […]

Of Origins

I felt that I need to extrapolate on Lets talk about Satan, where I said in quite a few words that I didn’t feel the need to use an Abrahamic concept in my religion, I have plenty of alternatives from the Earth based religions and religions pre-Abrahamic. I had exchange of viewpoints with someone who felt that I […]

Magick and gender

There is something I need to get off my chest in regards of “Alexandrian tradition”. In ceremonial magic, some people state that certain roles in ritual can only be performed by women, and other roles that can only performed by men. The supposed reason behind this is that feminine and masculine energies are different and […]
