Sex in the Heathen World

Here’s what I do believe: justify your workings. Don’t curse someone into oblivion because they told you your pants made you look fat one day. Don’t make a huge working because you need a quick $20. Make sure that what you ask the gods for, you deserve. And that will go a long way towards making you conscientious about workings [Read more…]

Responsible Pagan Sex? Never Mind!

Ah, the subject of sex. I’m reminded of Emily Litella, the dear, sweet, hard of hearing “rebuttal” character on Saturday Night Live played by Gilda Radner. “What’s all this I hear about sax and violins on television?” poor Emily pondered, much to the obvious chagrin of “Weekend Update” host, Jane Curtin. “That’s sex and violence [Read More…]

Spells Explained

Many non Pagans curiously ask me, “Do you cast spells?” To which replied “All the time.” Then they ask me “How can you believe in them and have faith that they will work.” To which I reply “Do you believe in prayer?” Personally I perceive prayer, ritual and spellcasting, as ways that the living, whilst [Read More…]

Sacred Endings

Candle lit, incense wafting, salt blessed and anointed in oil I step into the bath. Herbal flowers scent the water and steam rises languorously.

Small Miracles

We tend to think of miracles as being Big. Huge. Gigantic. Something on the scale of King Kong climbing the Empire State building. Often we tend to discount the small miracles that change our lives in quiet, solid ways. In Jan of 2004 I was unhappily married, I’d quit my fast-food job and was having [Read More…]
