This week I kept bumping into various articles on Wicca, and in particular the Charge of the Goddess, in rather unexpected ways.  I love the text of the Charge, but I have a personal annoyance with the way it is attributed to Doreen Valiente. The fact is, even though it is sometimes heretical to say so, Doreen Valiente did not write the Charge of the Goddess. This is also not a revelation, because Doreen herself in her book The Rebirth… Read more

I met Momma White Cougar when I lived in London sometime in the very early 00s when we were both members of a vibrant Fellowship of Isis group in central London.  We met weekly and explored the mysteries of different goddesses, through exploring a little of the history of each Goddess followed by devotional ritual and oracles.  Momma White Cougar was always one of the more silent people during group discussions. That was until the week came for us to… Read more

Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone really should need no introduction here.  Janet’s work with the late Stewart Farrar was long the cornerstone works for newcomers to Wicca, Witchcraft and other Pagan Traditions.  They influenced an entire generation, and I would go as far to say (my words, not theirs!) that much of the explosion in Pagan and Goddess traditions during the 80s and 90s would not have been possible without the influence and changes their works introduced.  We might look… Read more

The reason I had so many people draw my attention to your article is for the very reasons you took to your keyboard and wrote your article.  It is because your article is riddled with some serious misinformation and misunderstandings; mixed with some good accurate information and many devotees of the Goddess are keen to prevent further misinformation being spread about Her. Read more

Francine and I first met at CWED in  Sao Paolo (Brazil) in 2014.  I will never forget how she quietly came up to me and presented me with a bag of vegan snacks, including a massive block of goiabada, a Brazilian sweet made from guava (a fruit) as she had found out that I loved guavas!  In the years since then, Francine has impressed me deeply with her kindness, her passion for Hekate, as well as her dedication to learning,… Read more

Georgi Mishev and Sorita d’Este in an ancient Thracian temple near Starosel, Bulgaria. 2015. Around a decade or more ago Georgi Mishev came alive in my life through images on Facebook, and soon after he became one of the contributors to the anthology Hekate: Her Sacred Fires which brought together essays by dozens of people from around the globe who had experiences or visions of the Goddess Hekate they were willing to share for the benefit of others.  Three years… Read more

Katie Gerrard was among the first Priestesses I met on the London scene who was one of my peers, she is slightly younger than me and when we first met we were both among the much younger generation of High Priestesses in the Craft scene in London.  It was in the early ’00s, both of us had already been exploring the Craft and other Pagan and Magical Traditions for a few years.  Katie and I may have very different approaches… Read more

So, while discussing a particular point a friend of mine was trying to make about his perspectives on the Gods and Priesthood, I came up with the idea to interview 100 people whose work inspired me past, or present – and who are still alive today.  I will call this series of interviews “Children of Earth.” Read more

I didn’t know what else to name this entry – it had to be “Mists of Avalon” because that is exactly what I would like to share with you all today.  This is not an article about the book with the same name in which a fictional account of the King Arthur story from the perspective of the women in it is recounted – that book has inspired generations of people to seek out the Goddess in the way it… Read more

A couple of days ago I wrote about Cyberbullying on my Facebook profile as the result of a few friends being targeted by an individual who has developed an obsession after being pulled up for aggressive debating within a particular community some months ago. Cue an article in my newsfeed from a pop-magazine discussing the hashtag #iwillnotbedeleted campaign starting on November 12th, which is a cyberbulling awareness campaign. Cyberbulling is real. I have experienced it, most of us have at… Read more
