Offerings: The Energy of Reciprocation

Offerings are often an integral part of practice for many Pagans (of any variety; witches, Wiccans and more -oh my! ) But is the practice leaving offerings something that is outdated and what are some of the reasons we might choose to do this? I stood over the stove this morning preparing an offering of gratitude when the inspiration for this article came to mind. In this, I’ll tell you how I feel about offerings and what I think about them as I’m sure there are varied opinions.

Then and Now A Look at Sexual Tension from the 70's

I propose a question- Is it right to hold people to the standards of a new erra? Conversation please...  

OKay. Those who know me will say this is just another "Pam" moment - but I had to write.  this is a crone moment for me for sure, I really was very innocent when I was as a kid.  Even tho I was barefoot walking down the street smoken cigarettes and weed. 

Men Can Be Witches by Tamarra

The ambiguity of the word witch makes many people feel very uncomfortable and yet, that is what makes it amazing. This morning, I woke up to rather unconstructive commentary regarding how people feel about the concept that a man could be a witch.

Path of the Green Witch Part1 By David Waren

David Warren's picture

I follow a path known as Green – making me a green witch. It’s not one of the popular paths, nor is it one that many identify as a path of Wicca, and for good reason.

That doesn’t mean I don’t “borrow” from some of the established Wicca practices though.

Divination -More Than Telling The Future by Tamarra Collier

I don't know about you but with the New Year just around the corner, my mind shifts to looking into those new energies by way of divination!  If you look up the definition of divination on Google you get the answer: The practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means.  I’d like to elaborate on that by defining it differently.

Halloween Treats That Feed the Mind and Soul. What Can You Do To Make A Difference? - By Rev Pam

I live in the NW Suburbs of Chicago and every year the kids that stop by my door get a special treat.  I never give out candy (except that year I added the eye-ball gumballs) I always give out toys, pencils, erasers, etc. combined with a little printed out paper I make myself on the computer. The last several years it has been about religious tolerance and gave a 3rd grade viewpoint on historic facts, had a picture to color and a holiday word puzzle. 

New Crone on the Block: A Solitary’s Experience of Greater Chicagoland Pagan Pride Day by Our Own Blog-mysteress Martha Capo'

Martha Capo's picture

Back in the 1980s, in my young twenties and newly emancipated from my restrictive Protestant upbringing in the Deep South, I groped for an expression of faith that could accommodate my pesky square-peggedness and discovered the writings of Scott Cunningham. I remember thinking, “THIS!

The number you're trying to reach. Connecting to the divine by Kelly Washington

Kelly Washington's picture

Have you ever tried to connect with the Divine and gotten a feeling like the recorded messages you get when you dial a disconnected number?  If so, know that you’re not alone!  It’s something we all go through from time to time.  Sometimes the chaos that we deal with on a daily basis starts to grow out of control and we find ourselves feeling less and less grounded, less and less centered.  Even worse, we tend to feel guilty about being off track, which makes it even harde
