Ostara Rabbit and Baby Vegetables

Last week, everyone pulled out their 2011 Witches’ Datebook and started thumbing through it. In the process, some of you have noticed that Llewellyn included a recipe for “Ostara Rabbit and Baby Vegetables” by Elizabeth Barrette in March. We’ve gotten a few letters from people disgusted by this inclusion, so obviously this has pushed some […]

What will you be reading in 2011?

What are you looking for in 2011? What books do you think will help your progress, or are you pursuing an interest that does not lend itself to book learning? Are you shifting gears, deciding to read more romance novels, or buckling down to hit the textbooks?

Sharing thoughts on the eclipse and solstice

Last night a full lunar eclipse occurred, just hours before today’s Winter Solstice. Many people around the world used this auspicious time for ritual, spell work, divination, meditation, and much more.

Christians Are Persecuted!

Perhaps you’ve already seen the infamous headline today: “Pope calls Christians the most persecuted.” My knee-jerk reaction is something like this: “Seriously, Christians? You’re persecuted?

To lower the yuck factor all around, here are some […]

Book of the Dead exhibition opens today

I noticed an interesting article in the travel section of USA Today about an exhibit opening at the British Museum in London today, running through March. It guides visitors through the famed Egyptian “Book of the Dead.” USA Today reports: A major new exhibition at the British Museum hopes to shed new light on the […]

I am nothing like Christine O’Donnell

I thought I could let the whole Christine O’Donnell dabble-gate blow over without comment. But then the candidate from Delaware released a new political ad in which she says, “I am not a witch. I’m nothing you’ve heard. I’m you.” Oh, dear Christine, you are so not me. Unlike you, I believe in evolution, I […]

Religious Knowledge Survey – How Would You Do?

Are you smarter than an atheist? In a book titled Religious Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know – And Doesn’t, university professor Stephen Prothero wrote that “Americans are both deeply religious and profoundly ignorant about religion.” This summer, researchers from the independent Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life conducted a survey to find […]
