We are Aradia

“Feeling like we need a real life Aradia right now.” “I guess we need to be Aradia for each other.” #WeAreAradia In folklorist Charles Godfrey Leland's 1899 work Aradia, or the Gospel of the Witches we are told the story of Aradia --daughter of Darkness and Light-- a female avatar who descends to earth in order [...]

Open Letter to Uline: A Parting of the Ways

I just wrote this email to Uline, a popular shipping and office supply company which has provided 100% of our bags, boxes, paper, and other retail and shipping supplies since we began our business in 2004. I couldn't find an email address for their corporate office, so I sent it to their customer service address, [...]

The Curse of Witchcraft

"One hand to heal, one hand to hex. One heart, one mind to know what's best."    I've been thinking a lot about Aradia, lately. She has always been a potent figure of the personal empowerment of the witch, in my eyes, and features in the mythos of the Black Rose Witchcraft school; the daughter of the Witch [...]

Refusing to Normalize Hate

I. Just. Can't. Even. This is nothing less than a NATIONAL EMERGENCY. With the help of a foreign power, we elected an *actual fascist*. He has *proven* that he will not help all Americans by his appointments alone. White nationalism cannot be allowed to take control of our country. This CANNOT STAND. I will NOT [...]

Election Magic 2016 Pt. 2: The Real Work

So what now? For many of us it feels as if the very values of truth and decency have been trampled and we find ourselves bruised and bloodied, fearful for what the future may hold for us. But this is not the end of the world. It is a call to action. That action will [...]

A Post-Election Vision for America

  The vision I have for America is larger than this election. It's larger than just the rhetoric and the venom, and politics, and the lies. I envision an America in which all her people are equal and free. In which we care for our sick and our poor, rather than demonize them. I dream [...]

Election Magic 2016: Truth, Democracy, and Wonder Woman

Today marks Election Day in the US where we have the civic duty of choosing who will steer our country for the next four years. There has been so much in the way of orchestrated lies (a common occurrence in American politics, to be certain) that I wanted my spellwork to address that. While many [...]

Redefining ‘Huckabee’

Remember when columnist Dan Savage was able to "redefine" 'Santorum' for us? Afterwards the 'frothy mix' was all in a tizzy trying to get Google to not link to the numerous blogs and websites that followed suit. Well, I propose that we do the same for Republican, and sorry excuse for human being, Mike Huckabee. [...]

Patriarchy is not about men.

Patriarchy is not about men. It's about boys. It's about those who are stunted and who cling to a wicked lie that some people are more equal than others. Real men do not need to demonize women... or different types of men, for that matter, in order to gain respect. Real men gain respect by [...]

Think Outside the Cult

So, according to the Facebook Page for the Florida Pagan Gathering, they have dis-invited the Pagan pedophile-apoligists, Gavin & Yvonne Frost. The reason they did so, however, is not because they experienced a sudden bout of common decency, or even because of the many, many complaints they received at the hands of conscious Pagan people...
