I am counting down the weeks till Yule by featuring some of my favorite pagan women in small business. This time around I’m featuring another designer, Melaney-the one-woman show behind Wings of Sin.

As you may have guessed, I’m a big fan of exploring contested ruins so this spot was right up my alley. Originally called Mystery Hill, America’s Stonehenge is an archaeological site spread out over 30 acres in Southern New Hampshire. Much controversy has been made about its origins.

I was named after my maternal great-great-grandmother, Julia Penelope. She passed on over a hundred years ago but today she is speaking to me.

During this time she shared me with much about our family history and genealogy. My grandfather and she had spent their retirement doing research. Traveling all over New England and… Read more

I just got back from attending Templefest, the annual weekend event put on by the Temple of Witchcraft. It’s a four-day gathering that runs from Thursday evening till Sunday afternoon in an outdoor camp setting.

Alex was the founder of one of the two major branches of British Traditional Wicca- the Alexandrian Tradition. Here’s how it… Read more

I recently read an article claiming that this month’s full lunar eclipse occurring on July 27 is being used as a signifier of end times by some evangelical ministers. It had me thinking about eclipses and why they’re so significant. Read more
