Tara-Love Maguire On Her Trad Craft | Mat Auryn

Tara-Love Maguire has been a practicing witch for over 30 years, on a path which has been crookedly influenced by Isobel Gowdie, Marie Laveau, and William S. Burroughs. Growing up as a weird kid in and around the New Jersey Pine Barrens, she found witchcraft within the tales and shadows that dwell there. She co-hosts the podcast, Down at the Crossroads, with her sweetheart, Christopher Orapello, and together, they founded Blacktree Coven – a traditional witchcraft coven which exists in the heart of southern New Jersey. Her first book- Besom, Stang, and Sword – co-written with Chris, is available now wherever books are sold from Red Wheel/Weiser Books.

Are Witches Real? | Time

Pam Grossman Frances F. Denny

Yes, says Pam Grossman, author of ‘Waking the Witch’ and self-described witch. “The witch is a notorious shape-shifter, and she comes in many guises,” she writes.

Airmid, Frustration, and What To Do When Magick Fails – Glasse Witch Cottage

I don’t know about you, but I’m finding right now to be a deeply challenging time in which to live. As someone who is passionate about expanding social justice, equality, and equity for all, it sure feels like every attempt to make the world a better place is being flagrantly, callously, and sometimes even gleefully thwarted by those in power, at least daily.

It’s in this headspace of grief and frustration that I found an affinity with Airmid, the Celtic goddess of healing herbs. Not much is known of Airmid. If she’s mentioned at all, her life and work are condensed into a few short lines in most resources (though you may have run across an expanded version of her story in Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles series). But those few lines speak volumes. I’ll tell you my version of her story below.

Divining The Lines – PaganSquare – PaganSquare – Join the conversation!

This post started as notes in preparation for a talk I was planning for the seers group in my tradition. I decided to share it with some modifications to make it more broadly applicable. The following points are offered to encourage mindfulness and dialogue regarding the ethics and best practices for divination, oracular work, and allied disciplines. They do not cover all possible situations and differences in applications or doctrines, so change and adapt what is here to match your needs. I think that it is important for your sake and the sake of those lives that you touch to be clear on your ethical guidelines if you offer readings or oracular sessions of any kind. If you do not agree with any or all of these suggestions, I hope you will work to create your own or consider these a template that you can adjust.

Delmarva Pagan Pride Festival

Sunday, April 28 at 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM

At The Green in front of Legislative Hall. (Corner of Federal St & Duke of York St.) Dover, DE

Delmarva Pagan Pride Festival is an event to honor our beliefs and to share them with one another. Join us and enjoy guest speakers, book signings, drumming circles, pagan arts and crafts, workshops, tarot readings, great food, fine music and just plain old ways fun.

Admission is free, however we do ask for a donation of a non perishable food item for the Food Bank of Delaware.

Musical Guest: Mama Gina

A traveling Bard with down-to-earth, bluesy vocals, a bit of humor, and straight-ahead, rhythmic, acoustic guitar, djembe and frame drum, Mama Gina is a singer/songwriter, fearless storyteller, and wanderlust. She tells the true stories that fall into her head and heart, and sings of life, death and rebirth. She sings of holding on and letting go. She speaks to the Gods and Goddesses and they speak back. Oh, boy, do they speak back! She sings of her spiritual connection to the natural world, and of our responsibility to nurture both the mundane and the magical. When she is not performing, you just might find her camping in the woods seeking inspiration from the earth beneath her feet and the vast, open sky. www.mamaginamusic.com

Climbing The Tree

This is an immersive experience in the Hermetic Tree of Life taught with Pagan sensibilities. There will be workshops, pathworkings, a ritual, and evening discussions. The teachers will be initiates of the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel.

The ritual involves walking the Lightening Flash from Malkuth to Kether with the experience of a mini-ritual within each Sphere. The glyph of the Tree is laid out in 9 foot circles connected by paths covering a large field. Climbing The Tree is an incredible experience to plant the tree deep with yourself. Bring ritual garb if you have it. There can be roughly 10-15 people in the ritual per run. During the rituals we will be running Qabala pathworkings and workshops.

To be clear, you will get to experience the ritual at least once. When you are not in the ritual you have access to various classes and pathworkings about the Hermetic Tree of Life. Also, you do not have to attend the entire event but we encourage you to attend as much as your schedule permits.

Cost:
$65 by July 1, 2014
$75 until registration closes on September 1, 2019
45 participant limit
