Paganism & Covid-19: Rituals, Reflections, Magic, & More

Paganism & Covid-19: Rituals, Reflections, Magic, & More May 20, 2020

We are living in unprecedented times. Covid-19 is like nothing else in the last 100 years. In the last few months over 325,000 people have died world wide from Covid-19, and that number will only continue to grow in the coming weeks and months.

During these tragic times we’ve been working hard at Patheos Pagan to document the strange times we find ourselves in today. Our writers have documented how their practices have changed over the last few months and have reflected on the pandemic that has so changed our lives. There have also been articles documenting rituals and spells designed to get us through these difficult times, along with ideas for maintaining a healthy spiritual practice. Writers have also offered their advice on everything from how to keep one’s composure and shop for groceries during a pandemic.

As of mid-May there have been more nearly a 100 pandemic related articles on Patheos Pagan, and here they are all in one place.

Whether you are looking for a healing spell, a protection ritual, ideas on how to hold an online ritual, or perhaps just some online comfort, you’ll find all that and more here. We’ve categorized the articles from Patheos Pagan into four subheadings: Changing Practices (about how our practices have changed in light of the pandemic), Personal Reflections (how people are processing and dealing with Covid-19 and shelter-in-place), Rituals, Rituals, and Practices (self-explanatory), and Resources which includes a variety of things, from advice on how to make healthy meals, dealing with grief, and how you can help your greater community.

These are scary times, but in the end, we will make it through together. Thanks for being here and contributing to our community.
