I will be sharing gleams from the book Wicca 404: Advanced Goddess Thealogy by Esra Free.
First off, she states that she is an eclectic Wiccan. and that even the covens which take pride in their being of an old 'tradition', were at one time eclectics -- taking what works and rejecting what doesn't.
It may have been in the 1600's, the 1950's, or just yesterday -- it doesn't matter when.
And she pretty much explains how she views the religion of Wicca as a Nature religion,…Continue
Tonight we did New Year’s ritual at Tituba Temple here in Salem. It was a lovely ritual that included our Temple Dedicants Alfred and Melissa. In the ritual we released things we want to let go of as the old year passes, and manifested thing we hope to see grow in the new year. We also had an Oracle from the Ancestors. I thought I would share the Oracle with you:…

I offer readings using an oracle which I felt called to devise. It uses nature based images and ideas from the Scottish countryside.

I am also currently exploring reading for couples, business partners or other pairings and small groups of individuals. In these cases it is important that all concerned are open to the idea of…Continue

My former wife, Carmen, was a bit psychic, and she could see into things with an uncanny ability sometimes. When we were living in Silver Spring, Maryland, our best friends, Mark and Marie, lived in Annapolis, and we would frequently visit each other.
During one weekend visit to them in Annapolis, Mark decided for some reason that he wanted to test my wife's psychic abilities by seeing if we could hold a séance. Carmen had never tried a séance before, so I was…Continue

Religion is a tool created by man to give meaning to life, and to provide a means of understanding the great and unknowable mystery that is the universe. Throughout history, religion has been misused, and transformed into a weapon of oppression and exploitation (e.g., Christianity). However, ideally, religion exists for only one purpose, and that is to point man in the direction of the divine. The task of religion is generally accomplished through the use of myths, symbols, specialized…Continue
New Year's Resolutions
By Maria Shaw
If it seems easier for some friends to stick to their new years resolutions than others, you may want to consider their success based on their sun sign and astrology chart.
If you're a Pisces, you may want to skip this article all together. Ruled by Neptune (and strictly speaking sun signs) Pisces have no boundaries and they are usually the first to opt out of their resolutions. But don't despair. There's still hope if your natal…Continue

To the Aztecs, warfare was their life blood. Leaving childhood, a boy entered a House of Youth, to begin his training. Priests scarred his torso and arms with the mark of the Sun God, and taught him the ballads glorifying fallen heroes.
At fifteen, the…Continue

After hearing a repeated knock, Caleb simply pulled the covers over that shaved hard head of his and tried to ignore the thumps from mom’s front door. Still, after several minutes of relentless barking from the dogs, it was time to get up and find out who was disturbing this peaceful…Continue

How the fight started and who was to blame didn’t matter anymore. Still, that bathroom door needed to open. It wasn’t until the second kick that a sharp crack could be heard mingled with Shelly chucking a shampoo bottle through the opening along with a hearty “Leave Me The Fuck Alone.”
Through a damaged bathroom frame Shelly franticly tried to hurry up and bend a wire hanger over the curtain rod and around her neck before Caleb…Continue

From three o’clock in the morning till his mom’s neighbor arrived at ten a.m., Caleb found himself unable to get comfortable on that broken down futon. He was accustomed already to ongoing back problems and the mattress sagged in almost a foot, but this was not the problem this morning. With no driver's license, he had grown irritated at having to hitch a ride to his mother's house late…Continue
