Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

A work in progress. Explaining words and phrases that I often use. Noting new and interesting ideas. Discussing certain verbal warning signs. There’s no social justice or political correctness here.

Offsite links open a new window. Underlined links are internal to the site.
Uppercase links go to the lexicon. Script links go to the timetable.
A dashed border and red banner means I don't agree with the defintion or that it is a dangerous idea.

Webtree

The WebTree itself is the wyrd weave or orgone that permates and connects everything. Depending on perspective, it might be a web, a tree of life, a labyrinth, or found in the curves of a Celtic design.

Path - My modification with a technopagan bent and without some of the legacy. It's about dynamic tensions and polarities. Some of those polarities are obvious, some not.
Lady in the Court of Shadows • Lady in the Court of Stars

Daylord • Nightlord

Greenmark • Redmark

Duality is singularity reflected. It's a matter of perspective. Things tend to have their weird, their polar opposites. Understanding the links between the polarities gives an edge. That's why I came up with new names for the sabbats. And yes, I began my year cycle with the return of the light.

Yes, this reflects the Earth's solar journey, but on a symbolic level it shows a Divine aspect the Daylord struggling with his weird the Nightlord. One gains power as the other loses. wound betrayal exchange power for wisdom

wiccan

  1. The original plural form for “wicca/wicce” or “witch.”
  2. An adjective used to describe their religion by the followers of Neopagan Witchcraft.
  3. Isaac Bonewits, “glossary - Wiccan”, Real Magic
The origins of Wicca are snarled, Gerald Gardner liked being the mysterious wise man.

There are four distinct threads. One was the folk tradition that Gardner was initiated into. This tradition was incomplete and placed the emphasis on practical magick rather than Deity and worship. There was the stuff that Gardner researched from pagan sources, which focuses more on Deities and worship. There was the stuff that Gardener "borrowed" from Freemasonry, the O.T.O. and the Golden Dawn. Finally there was the original stuff which tried to make everything cohesive. This last bit probably mostly came from Doreen Valiente. Gardner didn't give her credit for years, that almost certainly led to their falling out.
