Pagan News and Views Since 1998
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

Greetings to my fellow Correllians,
The Correllian Military Department is open to individuals who have served or are serving in the military of any country and who are members of the Correllian Nativist Tradition. It is also open to military spouses under the same criteria, as well as Department of Defense civilians (or their equivalent in other countries).
We hope to see the Correllian Military Department grow and thrive. Unfortunately, many would like to keep us in glass with…Continue

Happy Full Moon!
This evening is a wonderful time to utilize the power of the Isis Quartz Crystal.
The Beautiful Isis calls in the feminine, assisting with Trust & nurturing. Due to the geometric shape of the face which produces the Isis Crystal, this One is wonderful to connect to the Ancient Egyptian culture.
The bottom of the face is horizontal, the 2 lower sides moving upward are even & point outward; the top sides of the faces are also equal but longer,…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…
As you know, it has been my custom these many years to begin each new Calendrical Year with a New Year’s Address. Candlemas of this year will mark the thirty-seventh year since Lady Krystel and I became First Priestess and Priest of the Correllian Tradition. That is a long time, and after so long it is no…

Our Coloring Page today is a piece I did back in the 1980's which can be found in 'Rev. Don's Pagan and Magical Clip Art'. The figure is a fairy, done as a black and white illustration for the magazine 'Seasonal Silver' published by Donna Lyon Rhose. Seasonal Silver came out four times a year and featured articles, artwork, and Donna's wonderful poetry. Back in those days small magazines of this type were one of the primary instruments of communication across the Pagan community, filling a…Continue
Our Coloring Page today is another older piece taken from 'Rev Don's Pagan and Magical Clip Art'. This piece was done in the 1980s as an illustration for the Wheel of Hekate, the magazine I published in those far-off days. The picture shows an ancient Queen. Her costume is Phoenician but heavily influenced by Egypt, as Phoenician costume was in certain periods.…Continue

Our Coloring Page today is a piece that I did around the time of the Chicago Pagan Leadership Conferences, in the early '90s. The name of the piece is "All is Now" and it represented the idea of integrating the ancient and the modern. The flowery leopards on the altar are modeled on a similar altar at Catal Huyuk, while the Goddess image is the Venus of Willendorf of course. The roses and lilies on the altar represent life and death/Soul.…Continue

May the world be sustained and given peace, O Goddesses. This piece is from my first Clip Art Set.…Continue

Our Coloring Page today is another from my unpublished but soon to debut Astrological project. This picture represents Neptune. The costume and hair are intended to be evocative of water. Neptune is shown holding a Trident, which of course is the Astrological glyph for Neptune as well as the common symbol of the God.…Continue
For those of you that have been searching for the Circle of the Lady of Crows website, I apologize but there were some issues with the server I was on previously and I had to find a new server host. I have now settled in on a host site with a new server and started working on my site. I think you will find this site much more user friendly and pleasant to look at!
On the site you will find information about me, about the shrine, and about our activities. You will also find a memoriam…Continue

Hello, I'm Aron Willis. I like reading and collecting books, listening to good music and playing my acoustic guitar, watching good movies at home and out on the town, and taking long walks to nowhere in particular.

Our Coloring Page today is another piece from the unpublished Astrological set of which I have previously posted. Today we have a picture representing the Planet Uranos. Uranos is shown as a young woman standing in a high storm, holding a staff tipped with sigil of Uranos. The staff has been struck by lightening, representing inspiration and disruption of established pattern.…Continue

Our Coloring Page today shows Hipparchia of Maroneia, a leading Cynic philosopher who lived around 325 BC. In the picture Hipparchia is shown with her husband Crates, also a Cynic philosopher. Hipparchia was Thracian, having been born in Maroneia, but she grew up in Athens. Her brother Metrocles was a Cynic philosopher who had studied under Crates of Thebes, the leading Cynic of the day. Impressed with the considerably older Crates, Hipparchia fell in love and decided that she wanted to…Continue

Our Coloring Page for today shows Livia Drusilla, the wife of Augustus Caesar, the first Emperor of Rome. Livia is often spoken of as the first Empress, although technically that title did not exist at the time. In the great culture clash between the Roman Empire and the Hellenistic world that occurred in the early part of her life, Livia was the opposite number to the Hellenistic Egyptian Queen Cleopatra. Unlike Cleopatra, whose name is still a household world, Livia is much less…Continue

Our Coloring Page today shows Queen Zenobia, who lived around 270 AD. Zenobia was the Queen of Palmyra, a break-away state within the Roman Empire, who famously challenged Rome to carve out her own short-lived Palmyrene Empire. Zenobia’s full name was Julia Aurelia Zenobia. Zenobia is thought to have been related to Julius Aurelius Zenobius, a Palmyrene noble and Roman citizen who served as Roman Governor in the years before Palmyra sought independent status. Zenobia claimed to be descended…Continue

I know it may seem like a bit of an odd topic for a pagan forum, but bear with me.
When I originally left christianity, one of the many details that put me off of that path was the way modern America treats Christmas. Because of the bad taste it all left in my mouth, even with the understanding that Yule was the base of many Christmas traditions, I really never felt right going along with the pagan aspects of the holiday. I would participate in gifts and family diner out of the need…Continue
Our Coloring Page today is a piece I did in 1991 for the Chicago Peace and Music Fest. That was twenty-four years ago! Where does the time go? The picture was intended to capture the laid back feeling of the event. Although originally intended for a specific festival, I think it nicely captures the festival spirit in general.…Continue
