Good ol' days on Pagan Space

Started this discussion. Last reply by Lilith Adder Jul 24, 2017. 13 Replies

I was not always the rather melancholy Sophia Lucifer, and Sophia Lucifer in her various personas was not always as forbidding as she is now. When I first came to Pagan Space last November I was…Continue

I would first like to define my terms, for the words "soul" and "self" are ambiguous in English, and receive different technical definitions in different religions, esoteric systems, and schools of…Continue

Wotanists Against Neo-Nazism

The name Wotan is HIS name and it has power. His name has been used (I should say misused) by so-called Wotanists for a violent, racist, neo-Nazi agenda. I take back the name. I am a Wotanist because of my deep spiritual bond with Wotan. The true expression of Wotan is not Hitler but Beethoven. Wotan tells me that now is the time to speak. Join me.See More

"I'm doing some star gazing and noticed the star Capella. Capella is a very bright star. It's name is derived from Latin, meaning Little Goat. It made me think of your blog post."

Aphrodite of the Goats

We all know how a character in a film can linger in our imagination more than the real people we know. So it is with Manon in the movie “Manon des Sources” (Manon of the Spring). We behold in her more than a beautiful young woman. As a goatherd she is Aphrodite. Most of us did not know that the goat is sacred to the goddess of love. But that is the archetype; and that, perhaps, is why goats are evil and sheep are good. The sheep obey the Good Shepherd. The Shepherd King is a time honored symbol…See More

The Starbucks Logo and Medieval Demonology

Terry Heckler, a Starbucks employee, is supposed to have found the original twin-tailed mermaid in a 16th century Norse woodcut from an “old marine book”. The first Starbucks logo reproduced this image without changing it in any noticeable way; later versions of the logo are progressively less sensual. With her noticeable breasts and belly and provocatively split tail this mermaid or one similar to it appeared in two medieval Italian churches, in Otronto and Pesaro, as an emblem of sinful…See More

Vishnu's Feet

In the painting below Vishnu reclines upon Ananta, the serpent of many heads, while Lakshmi massages his feet. This is a favorite scene for Hindu artists. They tend to portray it in the same manner, as if through a child’s eyes. Children accept whatever they see. It might take a child’s naiveté to fully enter into the charm of this scene. Otherwise it can seem very strange.I had an idea about Vishnu’s feet. Why are the feet important? Massaging her husband’s feet is a conventional way for an…See More

The Adonis River

What is now called the Nahr Ibrahim had the name "Adonis River" in ancient times. This river in Lebanon was supposed to be the setting for the love of Aphrodite and Adonis. Here, too, Adonis was killed by Aphrodite's jealous husband Hephaestus. My…

Did the Age of Pisces Influence the Old Norse Religion?

Most students of esoteric teachings believe in some parts of astrology, even if astrology as a whole fails to impress us. Students of esoteric history in particular should be interested in the phenomenon of the World Ages. The World Ages, each symbolized by a constellation of the zodiac, follow each other through time because of the precession of the equinox---and this is an astronomical fact. Astronomers and astrologers alike use the language of the zodiac, for the constellations of the zodiac…See More

My Artwork Celebrating the Near-Eastern Goddesses

I never learned how to use Photoshop and created these art pieces on Presentation, which is part of the free WPS office suite. Presentation is almost identical to the more popular PowerPoint. Most people who are comfortable with computers can quickly teach themselves the handful of basic skills needed to do the kind of work I have done here.The first piece is called "Ishtar Mourning for Tammuz". The goddess of the planet Venus, no matter what her name and country, loves a man who dies but is…See More

Can Anything Good Come Out of Nazareth?

So asked the Pharisees, referring to Jesus. But a far more painful question might have been, “Is this the son of the Nazarene whore?” The conception of Mariam’s son is a mystery or a problem, depending on one’s faith or lack of it. Most people inclined to the use of the intellect as opposed to faith are not satisfied with the gospel account. Perhaps, however, it is not too great a deviation from the natural order for an ovum to spontaneously divide without fertilization by a sperm cell. I do…See More

Schizophrenia May Be a Form of Shamanism

Let me state first of all that I do not have a degree in psychology. I nonetheless hope that more than a decade of experiences as a mental patient with schizophrenia are sufficient to qualify me to make a few observations. What I have concluded does accord with the outlook of some (certainly not all) of the professionals with whom I have spoken.Schizophrenia may be a form of Shamanism. It is not my intention to argue that it resembles traditional Shamanism as practiced in Brazil, Siberia, or…See More
