Throwback Thursday


Circa 1973 – Yes, I was in a sorority but we weren’t exactly average. I was soon to be President of Women Students and the girl on the right was the daughter of the leader of the local Hells Angels group.

And for some strange reason, I’m the only one in a dress.

10th Conference on Current Pagan Studies

My paper abstract got accepted to the Pagan Studies Conference otherwise known as the 10th Conference on Current Pagan Studies at Claremont Graduate School on Feb 8-9,

Subject: A study of Lesbiphobia in the pagan community

Now comes the hard part, putting the two questionaires together. One for lesbians and one that is for everyone else. Guess Survey Monkey is about to get $17 from me. I hope I get enough good, valid surveys back. I’m scared to death that people will answer on the wrong one just to try to skew my results in their favour.

Today’s reading


The Star

The power of universal lore is at work here, either within the individual or permeating a web of circumstance that will bring profound change and new spiritual hope.

The Star of prophetic guidance and inspirational knowledge has risen and will guide you on your forthcoming journey through the forest.

Hold this ancient and basic truth near the core of your being and navigate by it and you cannot go far wrong. It is there as a talisman as well as a symbol of the universal cycle of nature.

Whenever you are feeling lost in the dark labyrinth of life, remember that you are formed by the same laws and primal matter that bind The Star together and fuel its giant heart.

Drawing The Star card signifies a renewal of spiritual energy, cleansing and healing, a revitalised sense of direction, guidance from your ‘lucky star’, an intuitive knowledge of your destiny.

[We consist of atoms and particles like stars. The most ancient symbol of life and death in European culture is the cup and ring mark, and this is the shape made by stars forming themselves in the cosmos. This shape itself clarifies why The Star card is linked to the Aces-from nothing, something is formed, i.e. 0 becomes one.]
