Practical Polytheism: A Review of Devotio Antinoo

devotio antinoo

There are few people in the world that I admire more than P. Sufenas Virius Lupus. He is intelligent, kind, patient, a clear and thoughtful writer, and has been a source of unflagging support in my darkest hours. I am not in the habit of placing Pagans on pedestals, but if Sufenas weren’t so tall [Read More...]

Fresh Snark: Showtime’s “Polyamory: Married and Dating”

What is up with the 90's hair? I don't understand...

First things first, I know a bit about polyamory. I know some wonderful poly folks and have a lot of respect for that lifestyle choice. But I’m no expert. I’m not poly myself, mainly because I detest talking about feelings and relationships, but also because I find one man a lot of work and can’t [Read More...]

How Do You Review Divination?

Bonifacio_Bembo

About once a year I get a professional divination consultation. Used to be local readers, but the past few years I’ve gotten them online or over the phone. The type of divination varies. Last year I was concerned about my ancestors and I went to Galina Krasskova for divination. It was interesting and helpful. I [Read More...]

Needful Stories & Good Advice: Reviews of Low Magick (Lon Milo DuQuette) and The Grimoire of Aleister Crowley (Rodney Orpheus)

low-magick-its-all-in-your-head-you-just-have-no-idea-how-big-your-head-is

I read a lot of news and opinion, and reading for leisure hasn’t been a big priority in the past couple of years. I have had a strange week though, and it afforded me some offline downtime. So I read two books, one a recent Kindle purchase, and the other a book that I’d had [Read More...]

Analyzing The Wicker Tree: Spoilers Ahead

wickertree1

Religion can quickly become a gruesome business. Forget whatever you think The Wicker Man and The Wicker Tree are about. They are not “Pagan films” or even proper horror films. They, with tongue grimly planted in cheek, remind us where our theologies can lead us unchecked and unfettered. They are not pro-Pagan, pro-Christian, pro-religion or [Read More...]

The Gaian Tarot: A Review

I feel a bit funny about giving tarot reviews. I read the tarot pretty regularly, and I even once tried giving professional reading a go, with the result that I have a great deal of respect for those who do that exhausting work for a living. Yet, if you want to have a deep conversation [Read More...]

Grumpy Star and The Lovers’ Tarot Deck

When the Universe wants you to learn a lesson, it will ask nicely at first, and then it pulls out the cosmic baseball bat to knock the lesson into you. Since Beltaine I’ve been pushed out of my comfort zone regarding all that “mushy, touchy-feely love stuff” and I’m not happy about it. I find [Read More...]

A Conundrum of Conscience

Tonight I watched the new “Clash of the Titans” movie. Growing up in the eighties, the original had been something of a cult classic and had made an impression on me as a child. Sadly, the remake while boasting better special effects is nowhere nearly as good in story line and acting as the original. [Read More...]
