TheWildHunt: Should Witch-Hunter Helen Ukpabio Be... →
As the New York Times so aptly puts it: “In the name of religious freedom, Ms. Ukpabio seeks a gag order on anyone who disagrees with her.” As far as I’m concerned, let her go wherever she likes. But if she so much as makes a sour face at a Pagan in America, she’ll find herself looking straight at legal action, personified as a horde of perfectly justifiable Pagans. Let the law...

Anonymous asked: Whenever I'm nervous or panicky, or even mad, I repeat the Goddess Chant (youtube(.)com(/watch?v=)BDSu0-qDFQ8) (just remove the parentheses). Is that ok, even though I'm not officially wiccan?
how-todisappearcompletely-deact asked: I actually bookmarked this Tumblr recently. It's helping me learn so much, and is always giving me food for thought. I wanted to ask a question... is it wrong if I find myself with an affinity for the Goddess and not the God? Of course I respect them both, but should I be working harder to balance myself? Or is it natural to gravitate towards one or the other?

carameltigress asked: Is there a strict regime to celebrating Wiccan holidays? I don't have that many supplies or the transportation to get them, so I was wondering if I could celebrate via fashion: wear reds/oranges/yellows for Imbolc, wear greens/pinks/flowery headbands for Beltane, etc (I plan on lighting a candle as well). Is that all right?
Anonymous asked: Is it possible to be a Wiccan who believes in the Greek pantheon of Gods & Goddesses? I feel a connection with both Wicca and the traditional Greek ways. How do I find a middle ground between both of them? What would I identify myself as? And also, how do I find a patron God/Goddess to make a connection to and worship? Or am I going about this thing in completely the wrong way?

Dreams About Deity
I’m going to share a dream I had last night, because people always wonder what dreams about Deity are like. I had a dream within a dream last night, that a person who used to be a very huge part of my life was praying to an unknown Deity, with apples on the altar. When I woke up from that first dream, I had a second where I was talking to another witch (a very close friend of mine in...
