My thoughts about the cycle of the yugas parallel those of Sri Yukteshwar Giri, the guru of Paramahansa Yogananda. In his book The Holy Science he synchronized the “Great Year” of the zodiac with the four yugas in a descending cycle from Satya to Kali and an ascending cycle from Kali to Satya, giving us seven stages in all. Accordingly the Satya Yuga, which in his system is centered upon Virgo, proceeds to the Treta Yuga, the Dwapara Yuga, and finally the Kali…Continue

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was formally establihed on March 1, 1888. It's had a tremendous influence on Western Occult thought over the past century. Indeed, it's easy to say that without the Golden Dawn, Wicca - and therefore the whole Pagan revival - might never have seen the light of day.
It's really too bad that today in Greece there is a neo-fascist group calling themselves Golden Dawn. So, I think for that reason alone, since we've just had an anniversary of…Continue

Tonight I'm looking back how much my life has changed the past couple of years with living arrangements, school, and work but most of all how I live as a Wiccan. The practice of witchcraft and living spiritually as a Wiccan has really given me a sense of belonging and purpose in my life. I feel like every day is another day to learn and grow my practice of the craft. Knowing that when I get home after either a bad or good day at school or work or whatever else comes my way that I get to…Continue
You just never know who you will meet or where you will go when you wander into the night. Yesterday evening at sunset, I decided to go for a walk. After sunset the moon was big and bright, a Full Moon, sometimes called a Worm Moon or Crow Moon being the last full moon before the vernal equinox.
My wanderings led me to an old cemetery. My intentions were not to go into a cemetery when I departed for my walk. The cemetery was unknown to me beforehand. I decided to visit the dead who…Continue

In judaism you have both tov (good) and ra (evil) inside you. Some people may know, that judaism Has a lot of connections to the egyptian religion. So in egypt you have thoth (moon) and ra (sun). So why is the word for egyptian sun god depicted as evil in judaism?
I might understand the answer. So even if I'm wrong, it is still an Interpretation.
So the sun god ra is depicted as a falcon or bird of prey. His most prominent symbol is an eye. You could describe that in many…Continue
Urban myths; why do we tell eachother such stories? They're always so extreme and fantastic that, really, the rational mind knows they can't be true. But not only do we tell them anyway; we, in fact listen to them as well. Maybe these fantastic set of circumstances just might be real afterall!
The Urban myth has alot in common with traditional myths and folklore, in the way they satisfy a need for storytelling. It may be that the Urban Myth expresses a feeling that we live in…Continue

It has been awhile since I’ve been an active member. Things have been a little crazy in my life but overall it has been fun. Had a couple of close calls with Lady Death and several encounters with local law enforcement. No charges were ever pressed by the way. Mr. Hyde is sleeping for now so that Dr. Jekyll can rest back up. At least Pagan Space is still alive and well.…Continue
In my last essay, “The Daughter of the Goddess”, I presented Carl Jung’s idea that the collective unconscious mind almost always responds to the conscious mind with an opposite. Accordingly, wherever the collective conscious mind of mankind spoke about a Son of God, the unconscious responded by creating a Daughter of a Goddess either in myth or (rarely) in real life. Unfortunately it was necessary to focus upon ancient Palestine to see the…Continue

Carl Jung repeatedly emphasized the idea that the unconscious mind responds to the conscious mind with an opposite. Because Christianity has given us the Son of God we should expect the opposite to come from the unconscious mind, namely the Daughter of a Goddess. Like other products of the collective unconscious mind we shall expect to find this Daughter in myth.
In my daily religion class in Catholic parochial…Continue

The myth of Narcissus tells the story of a youth who sees his reflection in a pool of water and is entranced by his beauty. For some time now I have objected to the name “narcissist” as an epithet for a type of person who could more reasonably be called a relationship psychopath or sociopath. But on second thought I am happy that the beautiful Narcissus was chosen to symbolize the personality type that came into prominence in the last few…Continue

Ostara, or Eostre or Eastre, is the Germanic Goddess of spring and dawn. She is only mentioned once in scholarly writings of the period - Bede the monk states that during Eostremonath (the old Anglo-Saxon names for April), the pagan Anglo-Saxons help festivals in her honor. (Two hundred years later in Germany, in his Life of Charlemagne, a monk named Einhard gives the old name for April as Ostaramonath.) She is also mentioned in a number of inscriptions in Germany, and the modern holiday of…Continue

In I ching male is the strong and bright force and female is the weak and dark one, but that female only is weak isn't right. It only is weaker, which isn't even bad. Strong needs weak for balance. Now let's see what i mean. The sun (hot fire) is extremely hot and active. It's light is giving life to everything, just like the male seed gives life. Then we have the female weak fire. A candle light is shaped like a vulva and the weak fire is keeping us warm in the darkness. It's like a mother…Continue

You can eat junkfood. You can live an unfulfilled life. You can smoke cigarettes and take drugs. You can destroy nature, cut down trees, build cities, pollute the environment. All you need to do is believe in Jesus and you will be saved. I mean he died, just like everyone dies!
For your sins? So he died, so that you can sin...
But he was the messiah. He saved the world * didn't <-he*.
