  • The pentagram, or five-pointed star, may be the most misunderstood religious symbol around these days. Being the most common symbol of Neo-Pagan Witchcraft, it has nevertheless been denigrated by movie and […]

  • It seems to be an immutable law of nature. You are interviewed by a local radio or TV station, or in some local newspaper. The topic of the interview is Witchcraft or Paganism, and you spend the better […]

  • At times my political views seem to lead me into contradictions. Last month saw me writing a furious letter to “Penthouse” magazine concerning their misinformed story on Witchcraft. Within two weeks I was writing […]

  • It might be tempting to dismiss Andrew Greeley’s recent book, ‘God in Popular Culture’, as trivial. It would be a bad mistake. Yet I can see at least three reasons for making it. First, by now Greeley is known to […]

  • In most Pagan cultures, the Sun God is seen as split between two rival personalities: the God of Light and his twin, his “weird”, his “other self”, the God of Darkness. They are Gawain and the Green Knight, […]

  • Samhain. All Hallows. All Hallow’s Eve. Hallow E’en. Halloween. The most magical night of the year. Exactly opposite Beltane on the wheel of the year, Halloween is Beltane’s dark twin. A night of glowing jack- […]

  • Now comes the vernal equinox, and the season of spring reaches its apex, halfway through its journey from Candlemas to Beltane. Once again, night and day stand in perfect balance, with the powers of light on the […]

  • There are four great festivals of the Pagan Celtic year and the modern Witches’ calendar, as well. The two greatest of these are Halloween (the beginning of winter) and May Day (the beginning of summer). Being o […]

  • It seems quite impossible that the holiday of Candlemas should be considered the beginning of spring. Here in the Heartland, February 2 may see a blanket of snow mantling the Mother. Or, if the snows have gone, […]

  • Our Christian friends are often quite surprised at how enthusiastically we Pagans celebrate the ‘Christmas’ season. Even though we prefer to use the word “Yule”, and our celebrations may peak a few days before […]
