IF you are upset because a gorgeous, young, talented – black – actor has just been cast as Ariel in the Little Mermaid, then you should probably scroll away right now.  Inspired by your insipid, ignorant rants, I decided to put a blog together with images of how Mermaids were pictured before the Little Mermaid.  I thought it would be interesting.  So scroll away. If a black actress upsets your sense of what a mermaid is, or should be, you… Read more

Mark Townsend is a uniquely liminal man and Priest.  He is an ordained Christian Priest who received that ordination more than 20 years ago in the Church of England, the largest Christian Church in the UK.  Having walked away from the institution that is the C of E he explored Druidry and other Pagan paths, while maintaining his love of Jesus of Nazareth.  This might appear to be a contradiction, and for many it would be unacceptable or too contrary… Read more

In recent years Marco Visconti has spoken out in public and with erudite dignity about what he considers to be problematic areas of practice and culture within an esoteric order he was formerly a member of.  Some may debate whether or not speaking out in the way Marco did this is right or wrong, or perhaps have different opinions on whether they agree with the facts of what Marco wrote or not– but that is somewhat beside the point.  Speaking… Read more

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

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 later I organised the 2013 Hekate Symposium in Glastonbury (Somerset) and was delighted when… Read more
