    What would we do if we were to align procreating celebration themes with how Nature normally does it – with the time frame of having your offspring in spring? This would mean human procreating themes in Late Summer not Spring.

    “Today schools are promoting and continually working on being environmental educators on how to be responsible members of our ecosystem. I’ve enjoyed seeing the promotion and use of gardening, composting, and water conservation, but seem to have a blind spot”

    Pagan is a label that simply has claimed me, I’m just through trying to push away from it and have accepted it.

    Many continue the conversation assuming that I believe in supernatural beings, like spirits in the rocks, air, rivers, etc. and deities; that the Earth, Moon, Sun, Stars, are beings that care about you; that I follow the Celtic ‘Wheel of the Year’; practice magic/majick; read tarot/divination cards; and perform ceremonies that involve enchanting a circle, the elements in specific directions, and going clockwise. Mistaken on all accounts…

    Here at Patheos we were asked a Summer Series Question, this time “What’s your favorite sabbat/holiday, and why?” But how do you choose a favorite holiday when you only really celebrate one?

  11. How Cultures Form, Cultural Conflicts, And Our Shared Humanity

    Throughout history, there has been no single culture that has stayed “pure” nor will there ever be such a culture, and it is willful ignorance to believe so. So it is counter productive to try to prevent cultural mixing. … To ignore the various cultures around us is to ignore our humanity. And to the greatest extent – it causes wars.

  12. A Saegoah Ceremony – Similar To, But Unlike Others

    I found the directions for the elements in typical Pagan ceremonies confusing – Why was earth positioned north toward the pole? Air toward the East and Water West? South for Fire I could understand – as we view the sun along the south horizon through the day, but that doesn’t make any sense if you were to live in the southern hemisphere – reflecting how they were developed in the northern hemisphere and didn’t have the southern hemisphere in mind when made. The directions for a circle was also something that didn’t jive with me – being based on a perspective of the sun circling the earth, when I knew full well that it was the earth’s spin that caused our view of the sun.

  15. The Real Reason For The Season

    Each year I encounter something that most Pagans know, but the general public is oddly oblivious to. People who casually complain about the dark and don’t know about the shortest day of the year, or even when it is. I know this because that is when I mention that soon enough the days will be getting longer they blankly stare at me and say, “Really? When?” It becomes very hard not to do a face palm each time I encounter this, and its frequent. So I feel compelled to talk about the Real reason for the season.
