Poor, Put-Upon Pluto

I came of age in the 1980s. During elementary school, the mnemonic device “My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas” helped me and my fellow students remember the name and order of the nine planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. That’s right, Pluto. Pluto was always the smallest, […]

No Mirror Spells, Please!

One of the most common discussions I’ve had (or seen) about magick concerns psychic attack. I deal with this in Modern Magick, and point out that I agree with concept that Denning and Phillips present in their book Practical Guide to Psychic Self-Defense, that real psychic attacks are rare. After all, if someone has the ability […]

A Grand Experiment in the Evolution of Magick

The birth of this updated website, along with a forum to share ideas through blogging, presents the potential for a magickal experiment beyond what has ever been done before. However, to explore this requires a bit of information and history so we’re all on the same cyber-page. Two Human Needs Humans and other mammals are […]

Harvesting Gratitude

Tomorrow is the Autumn Equinox, a time we seek balance in our lives as we stand at the threshold between the light half of the year and the dark half, and a time to appreciate the harvest – reaping whatever we have sown this year. Today I give thanks for my wonderful job here at […]

Reading Space

We all know the importance of sacred space, right? I think that the act of reading is an act of connecting with the Divine. A time of honor and respect. By creating the right atmosphere, we prepare ourselves to enter liminal place, a place conducive to bridging our conscious and unconscious minds, a place where […]

A Reading for the New Website

This week Llewellyn opened its new home on the internet to the world. There are many great features for you. I confess that my favorite parts so far are the blogs. They lend a very open, welcoming, fresh, and personal feel, don’t they? I also like how each blog is separate, exploring its own path […]

Hey, baby, what’s your sign?

I confess, I loathe sun sign talk. Let me explain. I cannot stand the flip explanations people give for why one acts a certain way based on one’s sun sign. ‘O she’s a Gemini, she ‘s talkative, bright, and witty!’ ‘That Scorpio, he’s secretive, complex, and intense.’  ‘Geminis and Scorpios could never make good life […]

Full Moon Names

Ask four Pagans the name of the full moon this month, and you’ll get five different answers. There are several traditions for naming moons; to give just one example, the full moon in December could be called the Oak Moon, the Cold Moon, the Snow Moon, the Winter Moon, or the Long Nights Moon. Poke […]

Return of the Furies?

If you’ve been involved in the world of magick and the occult for some time, you may remember the anti-occult disaster in the 1980s and 1990s that has been called “The Satanic Panic.” For those unfamiliar with what happened, a few nurses and sympathetic practicing mental health “professionals,” along with various religious “leaders” and governmental […]
