I found this question posted in "another place" for a UK group today.......
So - if you practice witchcraft, regardless of whether you follow the Rede or not - how important is it to Keep Silent? ie, Not to discuss the working, or share that you are doing anything at all...
Does it matter if you talk about it?
Does it interfere with the spell?
Once the spell is complete and the outcome achieved - is it okay to talk about it…
Our Coloring Page today continues our series on the Muses. Today's Muse is Clio, the Muse of history. The name 'Clio' means 'Famous' or 'Renowned', and this says something about how the ancient Greeks saw the study of history: not so much as an analysis of what had gone before, but as a celebration of famous people and situations. Clio's symbol is an open book or scroll -although an argument could be made that it might be time for Her to consider adopting the e-book or computer.…

Our Coloring Page today is the first of a new series on the Muses. The Muses are ancient Greek Goddesses of creativity and inspiration. Originally the Muses were thought of as a triad, and their identities varied by region -but later they were thought of as an ennead with standardized identities. The Muses originate in ancient Greece but remained important in the Roman period and have continued as an important cultural symbol up to the present day. This picture shows Calliope, the Muse of…Continue
Our Coloring Page today is another black and white version of a card from the Tarot of Hekate, in this case the Princess of Lamps. The Tarot of Hekate is a one hundred card Tarot having five Minor Arcana suits rather than the ordinary four: Wands, Swords, Chalices, Pentacles, and Lamps. The suit of lamps deals specifically with issues of the personal spiritual path. Each of the suits was illustrated through a different culture. Wands: Renaissance Europe. Swords: feudal Japan. Chalices:…Continue

Our Coloring Page today is the black and white version of the High Priestess card from the Tarot of Hekate. This was one of the first cards done for the deck, in fact it may have been done as an illustration before drafted into the deck. It shows the Goddess wearing the mural crown associated with many ancient Goddesses such as Tyche and Cybele, surrounded by a wreath of leaves with the Moon behind and the Pentagram above. In one hand She holds the Shen, ancient Egyptian symbol of eternity,…Continue

Our Coloring Page today is a piece from 1992. This is one of many pieces available in 'Rev. Don's Pagan and Magical Clip Art'. This piece shows -depending upon how you look at it- a happy Pagan family, or the Mother Goddess, Father God, and Divine Child. The ambiguity as to whether the image represents the mortal or the divine is intentional, and was meant to represent the imminent nature of Deity. This drawing was created and used for the 1992 Pan Pagan Festival, where it appeared on…Continue

Our Coloring Page today is from 'Rev. Don's Pagan and Magickal Clip Art'. The picture is the black and white version of the 'Mind' card from the Tarot of Hekate. The Tarot of Hekate being a 100 card deck, there are a number of cards in it that are not part of a traditional Tarot deck, including an entire added suit. The Mind card represents the relationship between Mind and Soul. The woman represents the Soul, as indicated among other symbolism by her infinity-knot hairstyle. The peacock…Continue

We hope to see the Correllian Military Department grow and thrive. Unfortunately, many would like to keep us in glass with…Continue

Our Coloring Page today depicts the Goddess Asphalta, one of my favorite figures. Asphalta is the Goddess of the Roadways and Protector of Travelers. She is also the Goddess of Parking Places. Although Asphalta is a very modern Goddess, the idea of the Protector of the Roadways is also very old -Asphalta is merely a recent manifestation of the idea. As a parking Goddess Asphalta is sometimes invoked with the prayer; "Holy Asphalta, full of grace, please provide a parking place," or "Holy…Continue

And so it appears that one of the first major events of 2016 AD in the US is an act of Christianist Extremist terrorism.
I am very curious to see what happens here, and how this is handled -considering that their stated goals include bloodshed if they do not get their way. I truly feel that will define not only the year ahead but the future of the nation -not in an immediate way, so much as in an ultimate…
