Maps of Britain and Ireland's ancient tribes, kingdoms and DNA. For map fans, some new maps showing Celt, Roman, Anglo-Saxon and Viking territories in the British Isles.
Also, the remarkable DNA map which shows how modern Britons still live in the same tribal kingdom areas as their ancestors in 600 AD. The old counties of Britain & Ireland formed as medieval structures of government, but the origins of many of their names and borders lie even deeper in antiquity. Usually the names and borders of counties relate to ancient kingdoms or tribal territories. Although territorial borders have ebbed and flowed over centuries of shifting power many have remained constant, defined by natural features such as rivers and hills. Archaeology has found many examples of continuous territorial borders where, for instance, Roman villa estate boundaries were identical to those of medieval estates a thousand years later.

Both the Eleusinian Mysteries and those of Dionysus and the grape harvest occur in the Athenian month Boedromion, the month when the sun and moon conjunct in Virgo. Demeter, Persephone and Dionysus, as Gods of vegetation, represent a continuous cycle of life and death; this cycle culminates in the harvest of fall. But the First Harvest on the eight-spoked Wheel of the Year, commonly known as Lammas, comes weeks earlier. Although the aforementioned harvest Deities are obviously at hand in early August, it is the Goddess Habondia Whom I feel is most closely linked with the Lammas sabbat. Who is Habondia and why dedicate Lammas to Her? Demeter is likewise a Goddess of abundance. Cathedral of the Black Goat (official) Medieval Satanism.

February 6, 2014 by serpentlight213 When I first encountered the term Traditional Witchcraft I ignored it because I thought it was a form of Neo-Paganism claiming to be an Ancient Religion.
Wicca and other Neo-Pagan traditions are based off of very old traditions, but Wicca as it exists today is not historically supported. This is not to say that there were no witches during the last two or three centuries. It wasn’t until a few years after I first encountered this term that I actually started paying attention to it and I certainly went into it with skepticism at hand. I wasn’t ready to debunk it or anything. The Demoniacal: Dark God. Laverna is the Roman goddess of thiefery and cheating and has strong associations with darkness and the underworld.

Copyright © 2011 by Budenicos. Introduction: Modern Pagans, Environmentalism, and Deep Ecology Many people within the modern "Pagan" movements find themselves naturally drawn to issues relating to deep ecology, or ecological/environmental preservation. Many non-Pagans do as well; there seems to be something very instinctive in humans which wants to give an eye and ear to deeper perspectives about our role in preserving and living in better balance with our environment.

In general, the techniques described here are from Traditional Witchcraft practices. These are generally taught and learned through direct instruction, rather than textually. We maintain uniform praxes because we want everyone to be on the same page when working together. Rather than having long invocations to memorize, we find that knowing a few simple physical motions (and perhaps an occasional spoken charm or two) allows us to sync our work together, and that when words are needed, they come from the heart and do so much more readily after doing these exercises. We may not always use every one of the following techniques, but a general ritual would include at least some of them in more or less this sequence:

Why is Common Sense So Rare? Common sense was a term used a lot when I was growing up, you were encouraged to work things out for yourself and to use the brain you were born with. Often you were left to your own devices all day as a child and could wander at will in the countryside, safe in the knowledge that you were always kept an eye on by your community who knew who and where you were.
They were not above giving you a good telling off if you were up to mischief or a clip round the ear if deserved. You found out by trial and error what was a good thing to do or not.
