My Top Thirteen Pagan Picture Books About the Moon

ladder to the moon

by Meg YardleyAfter my series reviewing picture books for celebrating the cycles of the sun and the seasons, I began to gather a list of favorite picture books honoring the moon. Let me just say: This is not an exhaustive list! Even after extensive searching, I’ve barely scratched the surface of all the picture books on this topic.  So this is simply a list of some of my favorite Pagan-friendly moon books among those I’ve read – thirteen books for the thirteen full moons in a year.  There is … [Read more...]

The Birth Candle

256px-Candle-flame-no-reflection

By Moriah BurkeAs a pagan, I’ve heard many people say, “I’ll light a candle!” and I’ve also lit quite a few candles in my practice. Lighting a candle is in some cases the Christian equivalent of saying a prayer. I personally believe in having a candle lit for mothers in labor as their labor progresses. For me, this has usually entailed me not being physically present for the labor but starting a “labor vigil” once word has gotten out that the time is near. In a recent case, I did use a cand … [Read more...]

Picture Books for Pagan Families: Summer Solstice

summer sun risin

By Meg YardleyThe Summer Solstice celebrates the longest day (and shortest night) of the year, the height of the sun’s power, the abundant energy and magic all around us, and our own sense of achievement and empowerment.  You and your family might want to watch the sun set for the shortest night; host a costume party that celebrates magical transformation; make sun symbol art; drink sun tea; or write down something you want to transform and burn it in a small fire.  This year I especially wan … [Read more...]

Flash points: a family that’s open and inclusive

20140429-095327

By ChristinaI live in a big house with my husband and our two kids, my husband's girlfriend, her husband, their cats and dog, and a friend of ours.  That's family--or at least a big part of it.  Our housemates are the people who steal our baby when they go for a walk, and if the fish sauce is missing from the fridge, then they probably have that, too. Every week we split our farm share, and I don't think we could handle the whole thing on our own.  My husband and his girlfriend carpool home f … [Read more...]
