The Patron Saint of LGBT Persons: 4 Ways La Santa Muerte Empowers the Tribe
Date: 2015-10-05   By: Tomás Prower
La Santa Muerte is the patron saint of the LGBT community. How can this be? How can a pseudo-Catholic saint who is portrayed as a female grim reaper and venerated as the Spirit of Death, herself, come to be the patron saint of LGBT persons? Tomás Prower, author of the new book La Santa Muerte: Unearthing the Magic & Mysticism of Death, explains.
The Mutable Grand Cross from the Perspective of Evolutionary Astrology
Date: 2015-09-30   By: Deva Green
In astrology, a grand cross occurs when four or more planets a form two sets of oppositions that combine to form four squares. These planets are also usually related by mode (Cardinal, Fixed, or Mutable). This is a difficult configuration, but there is usually great strength accompanying it to endure and develop character. So, there are three modal grand crosses: the mutable grand cross, the cardinal grand cross, and the fixed grand cross. How does evolutionary astrology, which examines why we are here and which lessons we need to learn, view these configurations? This article will focus on understanding the meaning of the mutable grand cross, from the perspective of evolutionary astrology.  
Realizing the Green Witch Tarot
Date: 2015-09-28   By: Ann Moura
For author Ann Moura, the new Green Witch Tarot is a dream come true. This is a deck that speaks to her personal vision, one that distills the basic components of the Craft into a coherent whole, and which relates to the various aspects of the Goddess and the God, the Elementals, the seasons, and the energy correlations of animals and plants of Nature. Here she describes how the Green Witch Tarot came to fruition.
Three Theories to Explain the Chupacabra
Date: 2015-09-14   By: Nick Redfern
In early 1995, the people of the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico were plunged into states of fear and hysteria. There was a very good reason for that: a terrifying, deadly monster was on the loose. It quickly, and famously, became known as the chupacabra. Nick Redfern, author of the new Chupacabra Road Trip, presents three theories that could potentially explain the existence of the mysterious "goat sucker."

Tracing Lincoln's Ghost
Date: 2015-08-31   By: Adam Selzer
Lincoln scholar Hans Holzer once remarked that, "Either Lincoln is the most peripatetic ghost in the country or people think every tall ghost is Lincoln." Many people claim to have seen Lincoln's ghost, in places ranging from the White House to practically every other place he (or his body) ever visited. So how do we separate fiction from haunted fact? Adam Selzer, author of the new Ghosts of Lincoln, explains.
Mind Reading Quick & Easy
Date: 2015-08-24   By: Richard Webster
Telepathy, or mind reading, can be a daunting topic that requires us to suspend our beliefs—but in actuality, we're reading minds in almost every communication we have with others. We use our powers of observation, along with memories, emotions, and reason, to work out what other people are thinking about. How can we enhance these skills, bettering our communications with others? Richard Webster, author of Mind Reading Quick & Easy, offers a few tips.
Two Energy Exercises to Empower Yourself
Date: 2015-08-17   By: Keith Sherwood
Creative feminine energy functions as the driving force of evolution. Feminine energy is universal and life-affirming. It motivates humans to unite and to experience intimacy with one another. It can never be taken away from you; because of that, it makes everybody a healer; a lover; and, on the deepest level, a radiant, transcendent being who has the capacity to transform the world through their work and relationships. So how do we increase this energy to heal ourselves and others? Keith Sherwood and Sabine Wittmann, authors of the new Energy Healing for Women, provide two exercises that we can use to increase our feminine energy and empower ourselves.
Theurgic Meditation
Date: 2015-08-10   By: Patrick Dunn
When we think of meditation, we tend to think of Eastern meditation techniques. Many are familiar with zazen, for example—sitting, attending to the breath, and bringing the mind back from stray thoughts. But what about Western meditation practices? How are these different? Are they as powerful? Patrick Dunn, author of the new Practical Art of Divine Magic, maps out a powerful, theurgic meditation on beauty designed to bring us closer to the divine.
Ghost Hunting vs. Paranormal Investigation
Date: 2015-08-07   By: Richard Southall
When I started to investigate the unknown in the 1980s and 1990s, paranormal investigations and ghost hunting were not taken too seriously by most of our society. Back in the day, when a person on the street was asked about his or her knowledge and opinion of the paranormal, images from movies such as Poltergeist and Ghostbusters would often

If one thing has been sacred to our species since time immemorial, it is our trees. Dwelling between the realms of earth and sky, we humans are beings of both worlds, and our very life is a balance and synthesis of form and spirit, below and above. What more appropriate symbol for this could there be than a tree, rooted in the earth, and... read this article
