Earth Mysteries: Stonehenge and the Druids, Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire - Earth Mysteries Stonehenge and the Druids, Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire After centuries of neglect in the wake of first Roman and then Christian suppression, the Druids were rediscovered during the Renaissance when the revival of interest in ancient Greek and Latin writers brought attention to the works of Pliny, Tacitus, and Julius Caesar and their descriptions of the Celtic world. First in France in the sixteenth century, and then in England, the ancient Celts (or Gauls as they were known in France) and Druids were claimed as historical ancestors. By the seventeenth century, a new romantic image of Druids began to emerge in French and English literature. In England as early as 1624 the Celtic warrior queen Boudicca is credited by Edmond Bolton with building Stonehenge as her monument. Druids celebrating the summer solstice at Stonehenge Winston Churchill (center) hosts the Ancient Order of Druids at Blenheim Palace on 15 August, 1908

Witchy Thoughts: Fluffy Bunnies? A new trend within the Pagan and Wiccan communities - especially on the Internet - is to bash so-called "fluffy bunnies", typically in the most rude and offensive terms possible. "Fluffy bunnies" are usually defined as those who fit one of the following criteria: - they persist in believing inaccurate information about Wicca; - they focus on the "light" side of Wicca to the exclusion of the "dark" side; - they push their beliefs on others and/or claim persecution constantly; - they practice in an ostentatious, pretentious manner (such as calling oneself "Lord"/ "Lady" or wearing eighteen pentacles at once), usually because they are into Wicca for the shock value. I agree with many of the criticisms voiced by these folks - for example, dissemination of inacurate information, a "victim" mentality, and pretentiousness are problems in our community. 1. 3. 4. Now, far be it from me to promote a victim mentality. 5. Shock tactics do get attention.

title goes here Obsidian I apologise if the title of this essay may be a little misleading. I am not making a direct observation of morons in the Craft; in fact, some of the examples I mention below may even be anything more substantial than broad generalizations. The Obsidian Mirror has existed now for just about forty-five weeks. As you may already know, A.J. and his retinue have declared war on $ilver Ravenwolf. I used to think that Ravenwolf was a complete fucking moron. However, there are many who want to be like her. Another celebrity idiot I'd like to point out and make fun of is Fiona Horne, Australian whore d'oeuvres, whom after failing miserably at being a Gwen Stefani clone musician got into Playboy (and has hence tried to silence anyone who publishes any of her nude photos), and has actually become mildly successful at being a Neopagan author. Now that I'm done bitching about people, I'm going to get to the actual message of this essay. It's a way to control you. Back to the Main Page

Codex Seraphinianus: A new edition of the strangest book in the world Codex Seraphinianus: A new edition of the strangest book in the world In October Rizzoli will be republishing what is regarded by many to be the strangest book in the world, the Codex Seraphinianus. The Codex is unlike other historically well-known strange books (such as the Voynich Manuscript), in that the author of the book is not only known (Luigi Serafini is his name), he’s still alive. But the book is just so damned strange that it has accumulated a veritable industry of speculation about its meaning, deeper origins, and whether the language in which it is written actually has any syntax or not. Serafini has said relatively little about it himself over the years, and denies that the script has any meaning, but no one really believes that, including me. Recently, however, I was finally in a place where my finances matched the book’s availability, so I got myself one, only finding out shortly thereafter that Rizzoli was putting out a new edition in October.
